  • Creflo: I wanna begin in theScripture that we shared
  • 00:01:41.670 --> 00:01:44.206
  • with you earlier, in Matthew 24,verses 3 through 14 in the NLT,
  • 00:01:44.239 --> 00:01:50.712
  • and then we're gonna goto Hebrews chapter 2, verse 1,
  • 00:01:50.746 --> 00:01:55.083
  • and then my text for today,
  • 00:01:55.117 --> 00:01:57.052
  • Luke chapter 10:38-42.
  • 00:01:57.085 --> 00:02:00.355
  • Let's begin.
  • 00:02:00.389 --> 00:02:02.824
  • Matthew 24, verse 3.
  • 00:02:02.858 --> 00:02:07.696
  • He says in verse 3,"Later, Jesus sat
  • 00:02:07.729 --> 00:02:11.266
  • on the Mount of Olives.
  • 00:02:11.300 --> 00:02:14.002
  • His disciples came to himprivately and said,
  • 00:02:14.036 --> 00:02:16.338
  • 'Tell us, when willall this happen?
  • 00:02:16.371 --> 00:02:19.775
  • What sign will signal yourreturn and what sign will signal
  • 00:02:19.808 --> 00:02:27.149
  • the end of the world?'
  • 00:02:27.182 --> 00:02:30.552
  • And Jesus told them,'Don't let anyone mislead you,
  • 00:02:30.586 --> 00:02:34.690
  • for many will come in my name,claiming, "I am the Messiah."
  • 00:02:34.723 --> 00:02:40.362
  • They will deceive many.
  • 00:02:40.395 --> 00:02:42.898
  • And you will hear ofwars and threats of wars,
  • 00:02:42.931 --> 00:02:47.869
  • but don't panic.
  • 00:02:47.903 --> 00:02:49.838
  • Yes, these thingsmust take place,
  • 00:02:49.871 --> 00:02:52.207
  • but the end won't followimmediately.'"
  • 00:02:52.241 --> 00:02:54.376
  • So, we've heard of wars.
  • 00:02:54.409 --> 00:02:55.877
  • We've heard of threats of wars.
  • 00:02:55.911 --> 00:02:58.847
  • He says, "Nations will go towar against nations,"
  • 00:02:58.880 --> 00:03:02.417
  • that's happened, "kingdomsagainst kingdom."
  • 00:03:02.451 --> 00:03:05.187
  • That's happened.
  • 00:03:05.220 --> 00:03:06.655
  • "There will be famines andearthquakes in many parts
  • 00:03:06.688 --> 00:03:09.925
  • of the world."
  • 00:03:09.958 --> 00:03:11.293
  • That's happened.
  • 00:03:11.326 --> 00:03:13.128
  • "But all this is only the firstof the birth pains,
  • 00:03:13.161 --> 00:03:17.432
  • with more to come."
  • 00:03:17.466 --> 00:03:19.334
  • So, we've experienced the firstof the birth pains,
  • 00:03:19.368 --> 00:03:23.305
  • but it says there ismore to come.
  • 00:03:23.338 --> 00:03:25.974
  • "Then you will be arrested,persecuted, and killed."
  • 00:03:26.008 --> 00:03:29.978
  • We have seen Christiansarrested around the world.
  • 00:03:30.012 --> 00:03:33.148
  • We've seen them persecuted.
  • 00:03:33.181 --> 00:03:35.050
  • We have seen them killed.
  • 00:03:35.083 --> 00:03:37.486
  • "You will be hated allover the world because
  • 00:03:37.519 --> 00:03:40.522
  • you are my followers."
  • 00:03:40.555 --> 00:03:42.524
  • That's happened.
  • 00:03:42.557 --> 00:03:44.660
  • "And many will turn away from meand betray and hate each other."
  • 00:03:44.693 --> 00:03:48.964
  • Wow!
  • 00:03:48.997 --> 00:03:50.732
  • Hate each other.
  • 00:03:50.766 --> 00:03:52.768
  • "And many false prophetswill appear and
  • 00:03:52.801 --> 00:03:55.504
  • will deceive many people.
  • 00:03:55.537 --> 00:03:58.840
  • Sin will be rampant everywhere,and the love of many
  • 00:03:58.874 --> 00:04:05.080
  • will grow cold.
  • 00:04:05.113 --> 00:04:08.450
  • But the one who enduresto the end will be saved.
  • 00:04:08.483 --> 00:04:14.356
  • And the Good News aboutthe kingdom will be preached
  • 00:04:14.389 --> 00:04:18.360
  • throughout the whole world, sothat all nations will hear it;
  • 00:04:18.393 --> 00:04:22.531
  • and then the end will come."
  • 00:04:22.564 --> 00:04:26.101
  • The end will come when thegospel has been preached
  • 00:04:26.134 --> 00:04:28.503
  • around the whole world.
  • 00:04:28.537 --> 00:04:30.439
  • The end will come.
  • 00:04:30.472 --> 00:04:32.240
  • The Bible warns us of allthese things happening,
  • 00:04:32.274 --> 00:04:35.010
  • hate like you've never seen,and that's what racism is.
  • 00:04:35.043 --> 00:04:37.913
  • Racism is a spirit of divisionmagnified in hate,
  • 00:04:37.946 --> 00:04:43.085
  • and we've got to understandthat these things Jesus knew
  • 00:04:43.118 --> 00:04:47.489
  • would come to pass.
  • 00:04:47.522 --> 00:04:48.890
  • He prophesies that these thingscame--would come to pass,
  • 00:04:48.924 --> 00:04:51.360
  • and he said, "See that you benot troubled."
  • 00:04:51.393 --> 00:04:54.296
  • There is about to be a greatermove of God.
  • 00:04:54.329 --> 00:04:57.632
  • In fact, you can take every moveof God that's happened on the
  • 00:04:57.666 --> 00:05:00.769
  • earth thus far and what is aboutto happen is gonna be greater
  • 00:05:00.802 --> 00:05:04.639
  • than all of those put together.
  • 00:05:04.673 --> 00:05:08.410
  • You're gonna begin to see peoplecome to the Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:05:08.443 --> 00:05:11.580
  • that you thoughtwould never be saved,
  • 00:05:11.613 --> 00:05:13.949
  • and it won't be because ofthe charisma of other people.
  • 00:05:13.982 --> 00:05:17.619
  • It will be because the HolySpirit supernaturally will begin
  • 00:05:17.652 --> 00:05:22.791
  • to move on this planet, so thatevery knee will bow
  • 00:05:22.824 --> 00:05:25.927
  • and every tongue will confessthat Jesus Christ is Lord.
  • 00:05:25.961 --> 00:05:29.998
  • And we are right at thecorner of this thing.
  • 00:05:30.031 --> 00:05:34.770
  • This thing is gettingready to break loose,
  • 00:05:34.803 --> 00:05:37.172
  • and I don't know about you, butI wanna make sure that I'm right
  • 00:05:37.205 --> 00:05:39.841
  • slap-dab in the middle ofwhat God is getting ready to do,
  • 00:05:39.875 --> 00:05:43.645
  • so you watch what I tell you.
  • 00:05:43.678 --> 00:05:45.547
  • Satan is kinda goingaround like he's winning.
  • 00:05:45.580 --> 00:05:47.716
  • I mean, you've gotthe pandemic going on,
  • 00:05:47.749 --> 00:05:50.819
  • you got economiccrisis going on,
  • 00:05:50.852 --> 00:05:52.888
  • you got the spirit ofdivision and racism going on,
  • 00:05:52.921 --> 00:05:55.690
  • and I'm sure that Satanis just sitting back like,
  • 00:05:55.724 --> 00:05:58.360
  • "I got 'em.
  • 00:05:58.393 --> 00:05:59.694
  • I got 'em.I got 'em."
  • 00:05:59.728 --> 00:06:01.363
  • But I got to tell you in thename of Jesus the Bible says God
  • 00:06:01.396 --> 00:06:03.031
  • sits in heaven, and he laughs.
  • 00:06:03.064 --> 00:06:05.333
  • Why?
  • 00:06:05.367 --> 00:06:06.668
  • Because he knows that--he knowsthat that devil's end is
  • 00:06:06.701 --> 00:06:09.171
  • right around the corner,so this is a spiritual battle
  • 00:06:09.204 --> 00:06:15.010
  • that's going on.
  • 00:06:15.043 --> 00:06:16.945
  • People are just tryingto make it a carnal--
  • 00:06:16.978 --> 00:06:18.447
  • It's a spiritual dealthat's going on,
  • 00:06:18.480 --> 00:06:21.149
  • and as Christian people we'regonna hit it at the root of it,
  • 00:06:21.183 --> 00:06:25.287
  • and so we're gonna look at todaywhat do we need to be doing.
  • 00:06:25.320 --> 00:06:28.723
  • See that you be not troubled?
  • 00:06:28.757 --> 00:06:31.860
  • I mean, how is God gonna say"see that you be not troubled"
  • 00:06:31.893 --> 00:06:34.529
  • in the midst ofall this trouble?
  • 00:06:34.563 --> 00:06:37.265
  • Some of you havebeen so stressed out.
  • 00:06:37.299 --> 00:06:39.167
  • Some of you have just,"Man, this is just too much."
  • 00:06:39.201 --> 00:06:41.336
  • Some of you are like, "I justcan't look at news anymore.
  • 00:06:41.369 --> 00:06:43.738
  • It's just like the whole world'sgoing crazy."
  • 00:06:43.772 --> 00:06:45.640
  • And then, in the middleof this he says,
  • 00:06:45.674 --> 00:06:47.509
  • "See that you be not troubled."
  • 00:06:47.542 --> 00:06:51.613
  • Now, lemme show you somethingright quick in order for us
  • 00:06:51.646 --> 00:06:53.315
  • to answer that question.
  • 00:06:53.348 --> 00:06:54.816
  • Go to Hebrews chapter 2,verse 1.
  • 00:06:54.850 --> 00:06:57.252
  • Let's look at the King James andthen the New Living Translation.
  • 00:06:57.285 --> 00:07:00.522
  • Hebrews chapter 2 and verse 1in the King James and then
  • 00:07:00.555 --> 00:07:03.959
  • the New Living Translation.
  • 00:07:03.992 --> 00:07:06.261
  • See that you be not troubled.
  • 00:07:06.294 --> 00:07:09.865
  • He says in verse 1,"Therefore we ought to give
  • 00:07:09.898 --> 00:07:13.201
  • the more earnest heed to thethings which we have heard,
  • 00:07:13.235 --> 00:07:17.739
  • lest at any time we shouldlet them slip."
  • 00:07:17.772 --> 00:07:22.277
  • So, I'm gonna talk to youabout something you have heard,
  • 00:07:22.310 --> 00:07:25.814
  • but you've drifted away from it.
  • 00:07:25.847 --> 00:07:29.217
  • I'm gonna talk to you aboutsomething that you know,
  • 00:07:29.251 --> 00:07:32.888
  • but you kinda let it slip.
  • 00:07:32.921 --> 00:07:35.257
  • You're not awareof it right now.
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:37.893
  • This is the time where you haveto be aware of it, and,
  • 00:07:37.926 --> 00:07:41.029
  • you know, I'm not tryingto condemn you
  • 00:07:41.062 --> 00:07:43.465
  • for letting things slip.
  • 00:07:43.498 --> 00:07:44.799
  • We all let things slip,but thank God,
  • 00:07:44.833 --> 00:07:46.868
  • praise Jesus, we can pick upthose things we let slip and
  • 00:07:46.902 --> 00:07:49.371
  • make sure that we have theright thing at this right time.
  • 00:07:49.404 --> 00:07:52.974
  • Look what it says in verse--let's look at
  • 00:07:53.008 --> 00:07:55.911
  • the New Living Translation.
  • 00:07:55.944 --> 00:07:57.312
  • Hebrews chapter 2, verse 1 inthe New Living Translation.
  • 00:07:57.345 --> 00:08:00.315
  • "So we must listen verycarefully to the truth
  • 00:08:00.348 --> 00:08:03.351
  • we have heard, or we maydrift away from it."
  • 00:08:03.385 --> 00:08:08.657
  • We gotta listen towhat we have heard,
  • 00:08:08.690 --> 00:08:11.226
  • or we may drift away from it,so see that you be not troubled.
  • 00:08:11.259 --> 00:08:17.499
  • This morning, I wanna talkto you about--the title of my
  • 00:08:17.532 --> 00:08:20.502
  • sermon is "The Needful Thing."
  • 00:08:20.535 --> 00:08:24.940
  • What is the thingthat we need right now,
  • 00:08:24.973 --> 00:08:27.409
  • in the midst of allthat's going on?
  • 00:08:27.442 --> 00:08:29.744
  • What is the needful thingthat we have to have?
  • 00:08:29.778 --> 00:08:33.214
  • Luke chapter 10,verse 38 through 42.
  • 00:08:33.248 --> 00:08:36.117
  • Let's begin this today.
  • 00:08:36.151 --> 00:08:37.986
  • Luke chapter 10,verse 38 and 42.
  • 00:08:38.019 --> 00:08:40.555
  • How do I get results?
  • 00:08:40.589 --> 00:08:42.691
  • How do I get thingsto happen in my life?
  • 00:08:42.724 --> 00:08:45.460
  • How do I operate inthe supernatural,
  • 00:08:45.493 --> 00:08:49.831
  • the spiritual things,and see it happen?
  • 00:08:49.864 --> 00:08:52.000
  • Why is it that so many peoplealways go back to the natural?
  • 00:08:52.033 --> 00:08:56.071
  • It's because they don't reallytrust supernaturally 'cause
  • 00:08:56.104 --> 00:08:58.106
  • they don't know really how tomake it work or how to do
  • 00:08:58.139 --> 00:09:00.308
  • what needs to be done.

  • "all these other thingsare gonna fall in line."
  • 00:12:41.095 --> 00:12:44.766
  • How powerful is this?
  • 00:12:44.799 --> 00:12:46.734
  • You know, right here, hereis Jesus saying to a woman,
  • 00:12:46.768 --> 00:12:50.672
  • "To give your attention to theworld--the Word, Martha.
  • 00:12:50.705 --> 00:12:54.809
  • Give your attention to the Word.
  • 00:12:54.843 --> 00:12:56.945
  • Mary is.She's chosen the needful thing."
  • 00:12:56.978 --> 00:12:59.581
  • You need the Word.You need the Word.
  • 00:12:59.614 --> 00:13:03.117
  • You're hearingall other opinions,
  • 00:13:03.151 --> 00:13:05.086
  • and you're hearingeverybody else's word.
  • 00:13:05.119 --> 00:13:07.088
  • You need the Word of Jesus.
  • 00:13:07.121 --> 00:13:10.925
  • Now, look atProverbs chapter 4:20-27.
  • 00:13:10.959 --> 00:13:15.263
  • Proverbs 4:20-27.
  • 00:13:15.296 --> 00:13:17.398
  • You need the Word.
  • 00:13:17.432 --> 00:13:19.000
  • What are you givingyour attention to?
  • 00:13:19.033 --> 00:13:20.835
  • Are you giving yourattention to the chaos?
  • 00:13:20.869 --> 00:13:22.770
  • Are you giving yourattention to the trouble?
  • 00:13:22.804 --> 00:13:24.839
  • Are you giving yourattention to the pandemic?
  • 00:13:24.873 --> 00:13:26.808
  • Are you giving yourattention to the fear?
  • 00:13:26.841 --> 00:13:28.943
  • What are you givingyour attention to?
  • 00:13:28.977 --> 00:13:31.613
  • Well, let's payattention to Jesus.
  • 00:13:31.646 --> 00:13:33.815
  • Let's get in his Word.
  • 00:13:33.848 --> 00:13:35.350
  • Let's find out what we shouldbe giving our attention to.
  • 00:13:35.383 --> 00:13:38.686
  • He said to Martha, "You shouldbe giving your attention
  • 00:13:38.720 --> 00:13:41.155
  • to what Mary is giving herattention to," so what does
  • 00:13:41.189 --> 00:13:44.192
  • he say here in Proverbs 4:20?
  • 00:13:44.225 --> 00:13:46.160
  • He says, "My son,attend to my words."
  • 00:13:46.194 --> 00:13:50.498
  • Wow!
  • 00:13:50.531 --> 00:13:52.233
  • Attend to my words.
  • 00:13:52.267 --> 00:13:54.135
  • "Incline thine earunto my sayings."
  • 00:13:54.168 --> 00:13:57.205
  • So, here Jesus is saying again,"Give your attention to my Word.
  • 00:13:57.238 --> 00:14:02.277
  • Give your attention to my Word."
  • 00:14:02.310 --> 00:14:04.012
  • There's obviously something thatcan take place in our lives
  • 00:14:04.045 --> 00:14:08.750
  • when we give our attentionto the Word.
  • 00:14:08.783 --> 00:14:11.920
  • And, you know,we've gone to churches,
  • 00:14:11.953 --> 00:14:14.255
  • and we've done--you know,people are just like,
  • 00:14:14.289 --> 00:14:16.257
  • "Oh, well, I'm just tiredof the whole thing.
  • 00:14:16.291 --> 00:14:18.293
  • I tried that.
  • 00:14:18.326 --> 00:14:19.627
  • I used to go to church.I used to do that."
  • 00:14:19.661 --> 00:14:20.995
  • But how much attention was givento the Word even in the church
  • 00:14:21.029 --> 00:14:24.732
  • you used to attend?
  • 00:14:24.766 --> 00:14:27.068
  • How much of the Word got yourattention when you left church?
  • 00:14:27.101 --> 00:14:30.338
  • How much of the Word gets yourattention when you get up
  • 00:14:30.371 --> 00:14:32.874
  • in the morning or whenyou face trouble?
  • 00:14:32.907 --> 00:14:35.076
  • What did Jesushave to say about it?
  • 00:14:35.109 --> 00:14:37.011
  • What does the Wordhave to say about it?
  • 00:14:37.045 --> 00:14:39.080
  • What are you programmingin your mind?
  • 00:14:39.113 --> 00:14:41.015
  • What are you takingthrough your eyes and your ears?
  • 00:14:41.049 --> 00:14:43.217
  • He says, "Let them wordsnot depart from your eyes."
  • 00:14:43.251 --> 00:14:46.988
  • There's gotta be a reason why.
  • 00:14:47.021 --> 00:14:49.023
  • "Keep them in the midstof your heart."
  • 00:14:49.057 --> 00:14:51.192
  • There's gotta be a reason why.
  • 00:14:51.225 --> 00:14:53.962
  • Keep the Word in the midstof your heart.
  • 00:14:53.995 --> 00:14:55.830
  • Why in the world does God wantme to get the Word in my heart?
  • 00:14:55.863 --> 00:14:59.467
  • Verse 22.
  • 00:14:59.500 --> 00:15:01.069
  • He says, "For they,"those words, "are life,"
  • 00:15:01.102 --> 00:15:04.339
  • they're life,"unto those that find them,
  • 00:15:04.372 --> 00:15:07.642
  • and they're health."
  • 00:15:07.675 --> 00:15:09.277
  • The Word of God is health.
  • 00:15:09.310 --> 00:15:10.979
  • The Word of God is healthto your flesh.
  • 00:15:11.012 --> 00:15:13.281
  • So, the Word of God not onlywill be something
  • 00:15:13.314 --> 00:15:17.185
  • that will help us in all ofthese weird situations,
  • 00:15:17.218 --> 00:15:20.154
  • but it will also bring healthto your flesh,
  • 00:15:20.188 --> 00:15:25.727
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:15:25.760 --> 00:15:27.962
  • Come on, watch this.
  • 00:15:27.996 --> 00:15:29.864
  • "Keep thy heartwith all diligence."
  • 00:15:29.897 --> 00:15:32.700
  • Why?
  • 00:15:32.734 --> 00:15:34.202
  • "For out of your heartare the issues of life."
  • 00:15:34.235 --> 00:15:36.471
  • Now he's telling me thatyour heart is kinda like soil.
  • 00:15:36.504 --> 00:15:40.274
  • If you put theWord in your heart,
  • 00:15:40.308 --> 00:15:42.243
  • it will grow the issues of life.
  • 00:15:42.276 --> 00:15:44.912
  • In fact, words areseeds and--or like seeds,
  • 00:15:44.946 --> 00:15:49.617
  • and when you put thatWord in your heart,
  • 00:15:49.650 --> 00:15:52.320
  • it will grow the issue ofthat Word that went in.
  • 00:15:52.353 --> 00:15:56.090
  • The issue of life comesout of a man's heart.
  • 00:15:56.124 --> 00:15:59.360
  • He said, "Put away from theea froward," or disobedient,
  • 00:15:59.394 --> 00:16:02.663

  • Watch your mouth, 'causeyou can hear what you say.
  • 00:16:07.068 --> 00:16:10.438
  • Twenty-five, "Let your eyeslook right on,

  • Man, this is strong.
  • 00:16:35.496 --> 00:16:37.298
  • It's like God's tryingto tell us something.

  • All right, now watch this.
  • 00:16:55.483 --> 00:16:57.318
  • Look at Colossians 3:16.
  • 00:16:57.351 --> 00:16:59.287
  • Colossians 3:16 says,"Let the--"

  • get that Word, get that Word,and we still don't get it.
  • 00:17:30.418 --> 00:17:35.456
  • "I don't wanna get in that Word.
  • 00:17:35.490 --> 00:17:36.791
  • It makes me sleepy.I fall asleep.
  • 00:17:36.824 --> 00:17:39.127
  • I don't know what it means.
  • 00:17:39.160 --> 00:17:40.528
  • I--" And yet it is somethingthat will change your life,
  • 00:17:40.561 --> 00:17:44.599
  • change your circumstances,change your situation,
  • 00:17:44.632 --> 00:17:47.301
  • change your focus.
  • 00:17:47.335 --> 00:17:49.837
  • Why?
  • 00:17:49.871 --> 00:17:52.206
  • Why is he pushingthe Word so much?
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:56.144
  • Well, let's go see.
  • 00:17:56.177 --> 00:17:58.079
  • Mark chapter 4, and I'm gonnaread--probably teach
  • 00:17:58.112 --> 00:18:01.582
  • the whole chapter.
  • 00:18:01.616 --> 00:18:03.084
  • I've got lots to talk about.
  • 00:18:03.117 --> 00:18:04.552
  • I won't finish this sermontoday.
  • 00:18:04.585 --> 00:18:05.987
  • I got to get the answer to youabout why is this Word
  • 00:18:06.020 --> 00:18:10.558
  • so important.
  • 00:18:10.591 --> 00:18:12.260
  • "Why is getting this Wordso important?
  • 00:18:12.293 --> 00:18:13.928
  • It's just a book."
  • 00:18:13.961 --> 00:18:15.263
  • It's not just a book.
  • 00:18:15.296 --> 00:18:16.631
  • It's the Word that wasinspired by God to men.
  • 00:18:16.664 --> 00:18:22.003
  • Men were inspired to write it.
  • 00:18:22.036 --> 00:18:23.938
  • Holy men wereinspired to write it down,
  • 00:18:23.971 --> 00:18:26.440
  • and I know there are peoplethat are against the Word of God
  • 00:18:26.474 --> 00:18:29.143
  • because they say, "It was thatBible that was responsible
  • 00:18:29.177 --> 00:18:32.680
  • for slavery."
  • 00:18:32.713 --> 00:18:34.448
  • No, it was bad teaching.
  • 00:18:34.482 --> 00:18:36.450
  • It was men that used the Biblein a manipulative,
  • 00:18:36.484 --> 00:18:39.687
  • wrong way and taught heresyto people, and they believed it,
  • 00:18:39.720 --> 00:18:46.194
  • and they were madeto believe it.
  • 00:18:46.227 --> 00:18:49.263
  • There's nothing wrong with theWord of God when it's taught
  • 00:18:49.297 --> 00:18:51.499
  • properly, but, boy, whena false prophet gets it,
  • 00:18:51.532 --> 00:18:54.702
  • or when people try to teach theWord from the basis of mammon.
  • 00:18:54.735 --> 00:19:00.641
  • See, back in those daysof slavery,
  • 00:19:00.675 --> 00:19:03.344
  • that man would teach that Bibleto motivate slaves
  • 00:19:03.377 --> 00:19:07.081
  • to serve them because theirmoney was on the line,
  • 00:19:07.114 --> 00:19:13.588
  • and so it was manipulated,and it was taken outta context,
  • 00:19:13.621 --> 00:19:18.059
  • and it was taught wrong.
  • 00:19:18.092 --> 00:19:20.027
  • And they believed wrong andsubmitted their selves
  • 00:19:20.061 --> 00:19:23.531
  • to oppression and slaverybecause somebody mishandled
  • 00:19:23.564 --> 00:19:27.668
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:19:27.702 --> 00:19:29.937
  • That's why it's gotta behandled properly.
  • 00:19:29.971 --> 00:19:32.240
  • That's why it's gotta berightly divided.
  • 00:19:32.273 --> 00:19:34.642
  • That's why it's full of powerand full of strength,
  • 00:19:34.675 --> 00:19:37.278
  • praise God.
  • 00:19:37.311 --> 00:19:39.280
  • Now look what it saysin verse 1.
  • 00:19:39.313 --> 00:19:41.282
  • "And he began again--"Mark chapter 4, verse 1,
  • 00:19:41.315 --> 00:19:45.519
  • "And he began againto teach by the sea side."
  • 00:19:45.553 --> 00:19:48.456
  • Jesus.
  • 00:19:48.489 --> 00:19:50.157
  • So, Jesus is inthe boat teaching.
  • 00:19:50.191 --> 00:19:52.159
  • "And there was gatheredunto him a great multitude,
  • 00:19:52.193 --> 00:19:55.429
  • so that he entered into a ship,and he sat in the sea;
  • 00:19:55.463 --> 00:20:00.701
  • and the whole multitudewas by the sea on the land."
  • 00:20:00.735 --> 00:20:05.339
  • Jesus in the water teaching.
  • 00:20:05.373 --> 00:20:07.241
  • He's in a boat or in a shipin water teaching
  • 00:20:07.275 --> 00:20:09.410
  • to those on the land.
  • 00:20:09.443 --> 00:20:10.845
  • Now, verse 2, "And he taughtthem many things by parables."
  • 00:20:10.878 --> 00:20:15.683
  • So, Jesus taught by usingillustrations,
  • 00:20:15.716 --> 00:20:18.819
  • real-life illustrations.
  • 00:20:18.853 --> 00:20:20.921
  • "And he said unto them in hisdoctrine," or in his teaching,
  • 00:20:20.955 --> 00:20:24.659
  • so here's what he saidin his teaching that day.
  • 00:20:24.692 --> 00:20:27.428
  • He said, "Hearken; Behold, therewent out a sower to sow,"
  • 00:20:27.461 --> 00:20:32.967
  • so he's using the illustrationof a farmer going out
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:37.004
  • to sow some seed.
  • 00:20:37.038 --> 00:20:39.173
  • Verse 4, "And it cameto pass, as he sowed,
  • 00:20:39.206 --> 00:20:41.942
  • some of the seed fellby the way side,
  • 00:20:41.976 --> 00:20:45.946
  • and the fowls of the air cameand devoured it.
  • 00:20:45.980 --> 00:20:51.052
  • And some of the seed fellon stony ground,
  • 00:20:51.085 --> 00:20:54.655
  • where it had not much earth;and immediately it sprang up,
  • 00:20:54.689 --> 00:20:58.693
  • because it had no depth ofearth: but when the sun was up,
  • 00:20:58.726 --> 00:21:03.698
  • it was scorched; andbecause it had no root,
  • 00:21:03.731 --> 00:21:07.368
  • it withered away.
  • 00:21:07.401 --> 00:21:09.670
  • And some fell,"some of the seed fell,
  • 00:21:09.704 --> 00:21:12.606
  • "on thorns, andthe thorns grew up,
  • 00:21:12.640 --> 00:21:15.643
  • and choked it, and it yieldedno fruit."
  • 00:21:15.676 --> 00:21:19.880
  • Verse 8, "And othersfell on good ground,
  • 00:21:19.914 --> 00:21:22.883
  • and did yield fruitthat sprang up, increased;
  • 00:21:22.917 --> 00:21:29.023
  • and brought forth, some thirty,some sixty, and some a hundred.
  • 00:21:29.056 --> 00:21:34.729
  • And he said unto them,He that hath ears to hear,
  • 00:21:34.762 --> 00:21:39.100
  • let him hear,"or, in other words,
  • 00:21:39.133 --> 00:21:42.269
  • he that has perception,he that can perceive
  • 00:21:42.303 --> 00:21:46.874
  • what this illustration is about,there is awesome things
  • 00:21:46.907 --> 00:21:50.878
  • that will happen to them.
  • 00:21:50.911 --> 00:21:52.847
  • Now, remember inGenesis chapter 8:22,
  • 00:21:52.880 --> 00:21:55.116
  • Genesis chapter 8:22, he says,"While the earth remains,
  • 00:21:55.149 --> 00:22:00.988
  • seedtime and harvest,summer and winter,
  • 00:22:01.021 --> 00:22:06.594
  • day and night shall not cease."
  • 00:22:06.627 --> 00:22:11.999
  • While the earth remains,it shall not cease.
  • 00:22:12.032 --> 00:22:16.203
  • Now, I've just readto you where Jesus,
  • 00:22:16.237 --> 00:22:19.173
  • in his illustration,was literally talking
  • 00:22:19.206 --> 00:22:21.342
  • about four differenttypes of ground.
  • 00:22:21.375 --> 00:22:24.879
  • He talks about fourdifferent type of soil,
  • 00:22:24.912 --> 00:22:27.415
  • four kinds of soils.
  • 00:22:27.448 --> 00:22:29.083
  • Here, he's speaking offour kinds of hearts,
  • 00:22:29.116 --> 00:22:32.119
  • so he's comparing thefour type of soils,
  • 00:22:32.153 --> 00:22:34.822
  • soils, to the fourkinds of hearts of man.
  • 00:22:34.855 --> 00:22:37.825
  • You have the hard heart.
  • 00:22:37.858 --> 00:22:42.029
  • That's the first soil.
  • 00:22:42.062 --> 00:22:43.964
  • You see the activity of Satan.
  • 00:22:43.998 --> 00:22:46.467
  • You have the hollow heart.
  • 00:22:46.500 --> 00:22:49.236
  • That's the second soil.
  • 00:22:49.270 --> 00:22:51.172
  • You see the activityof the flesh.
  • 00:22:51.205 --> 00:22:54.208
  • Then, you have the half-hearts.
  • 00:22:54.241 --> 00:22:56.944
  • That's the third soil.
  • 00:22:56.977 --> 00:22:58.979
  • That's the activityof the world.
  • 00:22:59.013 --> 00:23:01.115
  • And then, you havea whole heart.
  • 00:23:01.148 --> 00:23:03.350
  • Now, basically what he is sayinghere is you can't take seed
  • 00:23:03.384 --> 00:23:07.221
  • and put it in the ground and nothave anything to cover it up.
  • 00:23:07.254 --> 00:23:12.359
  • You can't take seed,put it in the ground,
  • 00:23:12.393 --> 00:23:14.829
  • and it's shallow.
  • 00:23:14.862 --> 00:23:16.497
  • The birds of the airwill come and eat it.
  • 00:23:16.530 --> 00:23:18.532
  • In other words,he said the seed,
  • 00:23:18.566 --> 00:23:20.801
  • whether it's gonna besuccessful of growing or not,
  • 00:23:20.835 --> 00:23:23.170
  • is gonna be based on the typeof soil that was--
  • 00:23:23.204 --> 00:23:26.273
  • that the seed was put in.
  • 00:23:26.307 --> 00:23:28.542
  • Seed has to be put inthe soil in order to grow.
  • 00:23:28.576 --> 00:23:33.113
  • Seeds gotta be put in the soila certain way in order to grow.
  • 00:23:33.147 --> 00:23:37.818
  • You see, your heartis equal to the soil,
  • 00:23:37.852 --> 00:23:42.923
  • and the Word of Godis equal to the seed.
  • 00:23:42.957 --> 00:23:48.062
  • What he is saying is ifyou'll take the Word of God,
  • 00:23:48.095 --> 00:23:51.999
  • put it in the soilof your heart,
  • 00:23:52.032 --> 00:23:54.435
