  • THE LAST TIME WE LEFTMOSES HE WAS STANDING
  • 00:00:16.506 --> 00:00:17.974
  • IN FRONT OF A BUSH THATWOULDN'T STOP BURNING.
  • 00:00:18.074 --> 00:00:19.943
  • THAT'S BECAUSE HE WAS INTHE WILDERNESS AND IT GOES
  • 00:00:20.043 --> 00:00:22.278
  • BACK TO THE FACT THATGOD SAVED HIS LIFE.
  • 00:00:22.378 --> 00:00:25.715
  • REMEMBER HE WAS PUT INTHAT LITTLE BASKET AND
  • 00:00:25.815 --> 00:00:28.017
  • FLOATING DOWN THE NILE.
  • 00:00:28.118 --> 00:00:29.552
  • HE WAS DISCOVERED BY THEDAUGHTER OF THE PHARAOH,
  • 00:00:29.652 --> 00:00:32.122
  • THE PRINCESS OF EGYPT.
  • 00:00:32.222 --> 00:00:33.857
  • SHE RAISED HIM AS HEROWN SON AND THE JEWISH
  • 00:00:33.957 --> 00:00:37.260
  • HISTORIAN JOSEPHUS FELTTHAT MOSES WAS BEING
  • 00:00:37.360 --> 00:00:40.597
  • GROOMED TO BECOME THENEXT PHARAOH OF EGYPT,
  • 00:00:40.697 --> 00:00:43.032
  • BUT UNDERNEATH THOSE ROYALEGYPTIAN ROBES AND SUPER
  • 00:00:43.133 --> 00:00:46.803
  • COOL GUYLINER AND AWESOMEEGYPTIAN MOVES, BEAT THE
  • 00:00:46.903 --> 00:00:51.474
  • HEART OF A JEWISH MAN ANDHE SAW HOW HIS FELLOW JEWS
  • 00:00:51.574 --> 00:00:54.811
  • WERE BEING MISTREATEDBY THE EGYPTIANS.
  • 00:00:54.911 --> 00:00:56.846
  • SO ONE DAY HE DECIDED TODO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:00:56.946 --> 00:00:59.582
  • SORT OF TOOK MATTERSINTO HIS OWN HANDS.
  • 00:00:59.682 --> 00:01:01.518
  • HE SAW AN EGYPTIANSLAVE DRIVER BEATING A JEW
  • 00:01:01.618 --> 00:01:04.921
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS HELOOKED TO THE RIGHT
  • 00:01:05.021 --> 00:01:06.890
  • AND HE LOOKED TO THE LEFT.
  • 00:01:06.990 --> 00:01:08.191
  • HE SHOULD'VE LOOKEDUP BECAUSE THE LORD
  • 00:01:08.291 --> 00:01:10.460
  • WOULD'VE SAID "NO, NO, NO."
  • 00:01:10.560 --> 00:01:12.729
  • AND HE KILLED THE GUYAND BURIED HIM IN SAND
  • 00:01:12.829 --> 00:01:15.265
  • WHICH IS NEVER A GOOD THING.
  • 00:01:15.365 --> 00:01:16.866
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO KILLSOMEONE, DON'T BURY THEM
  • 00:01:16.966 --> 00:01:18.334
  • IN SAND BECAUSE THE SANDQUICKLY SHIFTED, HIS DEED
  • 00:01:18.434 --> 00:01:22.372
  • WAS KNOWN, THE PHARAOHEFFECTIVELY PUT A CONTRACT
  • 00:01:22.472 --> 00:01:25.175
  • OUT ON MOSES AND MOSESFLED FOR HIS LIFE TO
  • 00:01:25.275 --> 00:01:28.411
  • THE WILDERNESS AND THEREHE WAS FOR 40 YEARS
  • 00:01:28.511 --> 00:01:31.714
  • ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE DESERTNEVER THINKING THAT THERE
  • 00:01:31.814 --> 00:01:35.652
  • WOULD BE ANY PURPOSE ORMEANING IN HIS LIFE AGAIN.
  • 00:01:35.752 --> 00:01:38.388
  • HE KNEW HE HAD BLOWN IT.
  • 00:01:38.488 --> 00:01:40.290
  • HE MARRIED A WOMANNAMED ZIPPORAH.
  • 00:01:40.390 --> 00:01:42.425
  • HE WORKED FOR HERFATHER JETHRO.
  • 00:01:42.525 --> 00:01:44.694
  • HE HAD SOME CHILDREN ANDHE'S JUST LABORING AWAY
  • 00:01:44.794 --> 00:01:48.665
  • WATCHING OVER A LITTLEFLOCK OF SHEEP,
  • 00:01:48.765 --> 00:01:51.201
  • WHICH IS IRONIC BECAUSE INTHE MINDS OF THE EGYPTIANS
  • 00:01:51.301 --> 00:01:53.770
  • A SHEPHERD WAS THE LOWESTOF ALL PROFESSIONS.
  • 00:01:53.870 --> 00:01:57.640
  • SO HE WENT FROM BEING THEPRINCE OF EGYPT TO BEING
  • 00:01:57.740 --> 00:02:00.910
  • A SHEPHERD, BUT THERE HESAW A BUSH THAT WOULDN'T
  • 00:02:01.010 --> 00:02:05.515
  • STOP BURNING AND THEN GODSPOKE TO HIM THROUGH
  • 00:02:05.615 --> 00:02:08.518
  • THE BUSH AND CALLED HIM.
  • 00:02:08.618 --> 00:02:10.320
  • THE LORD SAID, "I KNOWABOUT THE SUFFERING OF
  • 00:02:10.420 --> 00:02:13.122
  • MY PEOPLE AND I'M GOINGTO DO SOMETHING ABOUT
  • 00:02:13.223 --> 00:02:15.458
  • IT AND YOU'RE MY MAN.
  • 00:02:15.558 --> 00:02:17.627
  • YOU'RE THE PERSON I WANTTO USE TO DELIVER
  • 00:02:17.727 --> 00:02:20.563
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROMTHE BONDAGE OF EGYPT,"
  • 00:02:20.663 --> 00:02:24.534
  • AND MOSES STARTED OFFERINGA BUNCH OF EXCUSES
  • 00:02:24.634 --> 00:02:28.271
  • AS TO WHY HE COULDNOT BE THE MAN.
  • 00:02:28.371 --> 00:02:31.441
  • IT ALMOST COULDSOUND HUMBLE.
  • 00:02:31.541 --> 00:02:33.876
  • THAT'S NOT HUMILITY,THAT'S DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:02:33.977 --> 00:02:36.512
  • IF THE LORD PROMPTS YOU TOGO DO SOMETHING AND YOU
  • 00:02:36.613 --> 00:02:39.249
  • DON'T DO IT, DON'TSAY THAT'S HUMILITY.
  • 00:02:39.349 --> 00:02:41.484
  • YOU'RE NOT DOING WHAT GODWANTS YOU TO DO AND MOSES
  • 00:02:41.584 --> 00:02:44.988
  • OFFERS A BUNCH OF EXCUSES.
  • 00:02:45.088 --> 00:02:46.889
  • WE LOOKED AT ACOUPLE OF THESE.
  • 00:02:46.990 --> 00:02:48.258
  • WE'LL REVIEW THEM AND THENWE'LL LOOK AT THE ONES
  • 00:02:48.358 --> 00:02:49.792
  • WE HAVEN'T SEE YET.
  • 00:02:49.892 --> 00:02:50.960
  • HERE WAS HIS NUMBER ONEEXCUSE AS TO WHY HE COULD
  • 00:02:51.060 --> 00:02:53.429
  • NOT BE USED BY GOD:HE EFFECTIVELY SAID
  • 00:02:53.529 --> 00:02:56.532
  • "I DON'T DESERVE TOBE USED BY THE LORD."
  • 00:02:56.633 --> 00:02:59.102
  • LOOK AT EXODUS 3:11.
  • 00:02:59.202 --> 00:03:01.204
  • HE SAYS TO GOD, "'WHO AM ITO APPEAR BEFORE PHARAOH?'
  • 00:03:01.304 --> 00:03:04.140
  • MOSES ASKED GOD.
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:05.174
  • 'HOW CAN YOU EXPECTME TO LEAD
  • 00:03:05.275 --> 00:03:07.443
  • THE ISRAELITESOUT OF EGYPT?'"
  • 00:03:07.543 --> 00:03:09.579
  • YOU KNOW, HEDID HAVE A POINT.
  • 00:03:09.679 --> 00:03:11.247
  • I MEAN IF YOU WERE GODWOULD YOU HAVE PICKED
  • 00:03:11.347 --> 00:03:13.316
  • MOSES AFTER WHAT HE DID?
  • 00:03:13.416 --> 00:03:15.018
  • HEY, LET'S REMEMBERHE WAS A MURDERER.
  • 00:03:15.118 --> 00:03:17.153
  • HE WAS A CRIMINALRUNNING FROM THE LAW.
  • 00:03:17.253 --> 00:03:20.857
  • HE WAS A FAILURE,AN EMBARRASSMENT.
  • 00:03:20.957 --> 00:03:23.626
  • YOU MIGHT EVEN SAYHE WAS A HAS-BEEN.
  • 00:03:23.726 --> 00:03:26.062
  • NOW HE'S AN OLD DUDE.HE'S 80 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:03:26.162 --> 00:03:28.731
  • WHY NOT GET SOME YOUNGBUCK TO GO DO THE WORK?
  • 00:03:28.831 --> 00:03:31.968
  • WHY WORK THROUGHA MAN NAMED MOSES?
  • 00:03:32.068 --> 00:03:34.904
  • HE'S AN 80-YEAR-OLDSUN-WITHERED SHEPHERD.
  • 00:03:35.004 --> 00:03:38.941
  • NO LONGER THE MANHE USED TO BE.
  • 00:03:39.042 --> 00:03:40.910
  • BUT GOD HAD BEENPREPARING HIM, YOU SEE.
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:44.414
  • SEE, MOSES WASMOVING SLOWER NOW.
  • 00:03:44.514 --> 00:03:47.383
  • HE USED TO BE GO-MO.FULL OF ENERGY.
  • 00:03:47.483 --> 00:03:50.720
  • NOW, HE'S SLOW-MO.
  • 00:03:50.820 --> 00:03:52.322
  • [laughter]
  • 00:03:52.422 --> 00:03:53.723
  • KICKING BACK. HUMBLE.NO LONGER A RISK TAKER.
  • 00:03:53.823 --> 00:03:58.194
  • BUT NOW THE LORD IS GOINGTO USE HIM BECAUSE,
  • 00:03:58.294 --> 00:04:00.997
  • IN EFFECT, HE WASEMPTIED OF HIMSELF.
  • 00:04:01.097 --> 00:04:03.700
  • I THINK WHEN YOUCOME AND SAY,
  • 00:04:03.800 --> 00:04:05.001
  • "I AM GOD'S GIFTTO HUMANITY.
  • 00:04:05.101 --> 00:04:07.370
  • I HAVE EVERYTHING THATEVERYONE NEEDS."
  • 00:04:07.470 --> 00:04:09.238
  • THE LORD SAYS,"NAH, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:04:09.339 --> 00:04:10.740
  • GO WITH THIS ONE OVER HERE.
  • 00:04:10.840 --> 00:04:12.308
  • THIS ONE THAT DOES NOT HAVETHAT HIGH VIEW OF THEMSELVES.
  • 00:04:12.408 --> 00:04:15.144
  • THIS ONE THAT NEVER THINKSTHEY CAN ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:04:15.244 --> 00:04:17.013
  • ANYTHING BECAUSE I WANTTO SHOW HOW I CAN BE
  • 00:04:17.113 --> 00:04:20.083
  • GLORIFIED THROUGH ANORDINARY PERSON."
  • 00:04:20.183 --> 00:04:22.852
  • EXCUSE NUMBER TWO: MOSES SAYS,"I DON'T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS."
  • 00:04:22.952 --> 00:04:26.589
  • EXODUS 3:13. MOSES PROTESTED,"IF I GO TO THE PEOPLE
  • 00:04:26.689 --> 00:04:30.560
  • OF ISRAEL AND TELL THEM,'THE GOD OF YOUR ANCESTORS
  • 00:04:30.660 --> 00:04:32.795
  • HAD SENT ME TO YOU,'THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME.
  • 00:04:32.895 --> 00:04:35.398
  • THEY'LL ASK, 'WHICH GODARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:04:35.498 --> 00:04:38.267
  • WHAT IS HIS NAME?'
  • 00:04:38.368 --> 00:04:39.402
  • WHAT SHOULD ITELL THEM THEN?"
  • 00:04:39.502 --> 00:04:40.970
  • I LOVE THE LORD'S REPLY.
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:42.672
  • GOD REPLIES,"I AM WHO I AM.
  • 00:04:42.772 --> 00:04:46.476
  • JUST TELL THEM I AMHAS SENT ME TO YOU."
  • 00:04:46.576 --> 00:04:51.013
  • SO BASICALLY MOSESASKS, "WHO AM I?"
  • 00:04:51.114 --> 00:04:55.318
  • GOD REPLIES, "I AM THATI AM." IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:04:55.418 --> 00:04:59.122
  • "MOSES, IT'SNOT ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:04:59.222 --> 00:05:01.324
  • IT'S ABOUT ME." MOSES WASSAYING, "I DON'T HAVE ALL
  • 00:05:01.424 --> 00:05:04.761
  • THE ANSWERS," AND GOD ISREPLYING, "BUT YOU WILL
  • 00:05:04.861 --> 00:05:07.997
  • HAVE ALL OF ME AND I DOHAVE THE ANSWERS."
  • 00:05:08.097 --> 00:05:12.201
  • YOU KNOW, JESUS SAID,"ALL POWER HAS BEEN GIVEN
  • 00:05:12.301 --> 00:05:14.737
  • TO ME IN HEAVEN AND EARTH.
  • 00:05:14.837 --> 00:05:16.839
  • GO YOU THEREFORE INTO ALLTHE WORLD AND PREACH THE
  • 00:05:16.939 --> 00:05:20.376
  • GOSPEL." HAVE YOU EVERNOTICED THAT CONNECTION?
  • 00:05:20.476 --> 00:05:22.412
  • HE HAS ALL THE POWERAND HE TELLS ME TO GO,
  • 00:05:22.512 --> 00:05:26.149
  • SO WHAT'S THE CONNECTION?
  • 00:05:26.249 --> 00:05:27.183
  • I MEAN IF HE HAS THEPOWER, WHY AM I GOING?
  • 00:05:27.283 --> 00:05:28.918
  • BECAUSE HE WHO HAS ALL THEPOWER LIVES INSIDE OF ME,
  • 00:05:29.018 --> 00:05:32.455
  • AND HE WILL GIVEME THE WORDS
  • 00:05:32.555 --> 00:05:34.490
  • I NEED WHEN I NEED THOSE WORDS.
  • 00:05:34.590 --> 00:05:36.492
  • HE'LL GIVE ME THE POWERTHAT I NEED TO DO WHAT
  • 00:05:36.592 --> 00:05:38.895
  • HE'S CALLED ME TO DO.
  • 00:05:38.995 --> 00:05:40.129
  • HE WON'T GIVE IT TO MENECESSARILY BEFORE, HE
  • 00:05:40.229 --> 00:05:43.032
  • WON'T GIVE IT TO ME AFTER,BUT HE'LL GIVE ME WHAT
  • 00:05:43.132 --> 00:05:46.269
  • I NEED WHEN I NEED IT.
  • 00:05:46.369 --> 00:05:48.371
  • WHAT HE NEEDS FROM MERIGHT NOW, WHAT HE WANTS
  • 00:05:48.471 --> 00:05:50.573
  • FROM ME RIGHT NOW ISFOR ME TO JUST SAY,
  • 00:05:50.673 --> 00:05:53.009
  • "ALL RIGHT, LORD.I'LL GO. I'LL TRY.
  • 00:05:53.109 --> 00:05:55.344
  • I'LL MAKE MYSELF AVAILABLETO YOU." THEN THE LORD
  • 00:05:55.445 --> 00:05:58.581
  • SAYS TO MOSES, "TAKEYOUR SHEPHERD'S STAFF.
  • 00:05:58.681 --> 00:06:01.918
  • THROW IT ON THE GROUND."SO HE THROWS IT. POOF!
  • 00:06:02.018 --> 00:06:04.353
  • TURNS INTO A SNAKE.
  • 00:06:04.454 --> 00:06:05.621
  • PROBABLY A COBRA BECAUSE THECOBRA WAS A SYMBOL OF EGYPT.
  • 00:06:05.721 --> 00:06:09.058
  • EVEN THE PHARAOH WORE A LITTLECOBRA EMBLEM ON HIS HEADDRESS.
  • 00:06:09.158 --> 00:06:14.197
  • SO THE LORD SAYS, "GRABTHE SNAKE BY THE TAIL."
  • 00:06:14.297 --> 00:06:16.899
  • HE DOES IT. WHAT ISTHE LORD SAYING?
  • 00:06:16.999 --> 00:06:18.501
  • HE'S SAYING, "FACE YOURFEARS." DON'T BE AFRAID.
  • 00:06:18.601 --> 00:06:21.204
  • I'M GOING TO CONQUER EGYPTSO YOU FACE THOSE FEARS
  • 00:06:21.304 --> 00:06:25.408
  • THAT YOU HAVE NOW.
  • 00:06:25.508 --> 00:06:27.343
  • AND SO THESE ARE MIRACLESTHAT MOSES WAS TO DO.
  • 00:06:27.443 --> 00:06:30.847
  • NOW MOSES COMES UP WITHEXCUSE NUMBER THREE:
  • 00:06:30.947 --> 00:06:33.449
  • "I'M NOT A GOOD SPEAKER."
  • 00:06:33.549 --> 00:06:38.187
  • GO OVER TO EXODUS 4:10.MOSES PLEADED WITH THE LORD,
  • 00:06:38.287 --> 00:06:41.424
  • "OH LORD, I'M NOTA GOOD SPEAKER.
  • 00:06:41.524 --> 00:06:44.093
  • I NEVER HAVE BEENAND I'M NOT NOW.
  • 00:06:44.193 --> 00:06:46.529
  • EVEN AFTER YOU'VE SPOKENTO ME, I'M CLUMSY WITH
  • 00:06:46.629 --> 00:06:51.000
  • WORDS." NOW, WHATDOES THIS MEAN?
  • 00:06:51.100 --> 00:06:53.236
  • THIS IS ACTUALLYTRANSLATED A NUMBER
  • 00:06:53.336 --> 00:06:56.472
  • OF WAYS IN THEBOOK OF EXODUS.
  • 00:06:56.572 --> 00:06:59.175
  • COMMENTATORS HAVEDIFFERENT IDEAS AS TO
  • 00:06:59.275 --> 00:07:02.612
  • WHAT HE MEANT, BUT THE KINGJAMES TRANSLATION IS
  • 00:07:02.712 --> 00:07:07.216
  • "I'M SLOW OF SPEECH ANDTONGUE," AND THE THOUGHT
  • 00:07:07.316 --> 00:07:10.786
  • IS THAT MAYBE HE HAD APROBLEM WITH STUTTERING.
  • 00:07:10.887 --> 00:07:14.891
  • A SPEECH IMPEDIMENT.
  • 00:07:14.991 --> 00:07:17.093
  • AND THIS REMINDS ME OF MYFRIEND JACK HIBBS WHO DOES
  • 00:07:17.193 --> 00:07:20.796
  • NOT HAVE A SPEECHIMPEDIMENT, BUT HE ONCE DID.
  • 00:07:20.897 --> 00:07:24.433
  • JACK IS THE PASTOR OFCALVARY CHAPEL OF CHINO HILLS.
  • 00:07:24.534 --> 00:07:27.637
  • A POWERFUL TEACHEROF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:07:27.737 --> 00:07:30.806
  • LOVES THE LORD.A GREAT EVANGELIST.
  • 00:07:30.907 --> 00:07:33.476
  • REALLY GIFTED BY THE LORD.
  • 00:07:33.576 --> 00:07:34.944
  • THE WAY HE CAME TO CHRISTIS PRETTY INTERESTING.
  • 00:07:35.044 --> 00:07:37.313
  • HE WAS OUT DRIVING AROUNDWITH SOME BUDDIES ONE
  • 00:07:37.413 --> 00:07:39.215
  • NIGHT YEARS AGO, AND HESAW A CARLOAD OF CUTE
  • 00:07:39.315 --> 00:07:42.919
  • GIRLS SO THEY SAID,"LET'S FOLLOW THEM."
  • 00:07:43.019 --> 00:07:45.288
  • AND GUESS WHERE THECUTE GIRLS WENT?
  • 00:07:45.388 --> 00:07:47.356
  • TO CHURCH.
  • 00:07:47.456 --> 00:07:48.224
  • [laughter]
  • 00:07:48.324 --> 00:07:49.825
  • HE DIDN'T KNOW HE WASGOING TO CHURCH SO HE

  • FOLLOWS THEM IN, GETS OUTOF THE CAR, FOLLOW THE

  • GIRLS IN THE CHURCH ANDHE'S AT A WORSHIP SERVICE
  • 00:07:53.629 --> 00:07:56.866
  • AT CALVARY CHAPEL OF COSTAMESA WHERE I HAPPENED
  • 00:07:56.966 --> 00:07:59.268
  • TO BE SPEAKING THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:07:59.368 --> 00:08:01.103
  • AND I GAVE THE INVITATIONFOR PEOPLE TO COME TO
  • 00:08:01.203 --> 00:08:03.172
  • CHRIST AND JACK ACCEPTEDTHE LORD AND THEN HE
  • 00:08:03.272 --> 00:08:06.509
  • WANTED TO BE USED BY THELORD BUT HE HAD THIS
  • 00:08:06.609 --> 00:08:09.178
  • PROBLEM WITH STUTTERING.
  • 00:08:09.278 --> 00:08:10.947
  • HE WOULD GET VERY NERVOUSAND HE WENT OUT WITH SOME
  • 00:08:11.047 --> 00:08:14.050
  • FRIENDS ONE NIGHT AND THEYWERE TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT
  • 00:08:14.150 --> 00:08:16.185
  • JESUS AND HE SAID, "I JUSTDECIDED I WOULD PRAY FOR
  • 00:08:16.285 --> 00:08:19.055
  • THEM BECAUSE I HAD THISSTUTTERING PROBLEM,"
  • 00:08:19.155 --> 00:08:21.857
  • AND SO I WROTE HIM.
  • 00:08:21.958 --> 00:08:23.059
  • I SAID, "TELL ME EXACTLYWHAT HAPPENED." SO IN HIS
  • 00:08:23.159 --> 00:08:26.095
  • TEXT BACK TO ME HE SAIDTHIS: "ONE NIGHT ON LIDO
  • 00:08:26.195 --> 00:08:30.666
  • ISLAND I SAW SOMEONE ANDI FELT AN OVERWHELMING
  • 00:08:30.766 --> 00:08:33.836
  • BURDEN TO GO SPEAK TO THEMAND SHARE THE GOSPEL."
  • 00:08:33.936 --> 00:08:36.906
  • HE SAYS, "I OPENED MY MOUTH ANDI WAS HEALED IN THAT INSTANT.
  • 00:08:37.006 --> 00:08:41.510
  • THE LORD SET MY TONGUEFREE FROM STUTTERING
  • 00:08:41.611 --> 00:08:43.980
  • THAT NIGHT, AND I'VEBEEN GOING EVER SINCE."
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:46.549
  • ISN'T THAT A GREAT STORY?
  • 00:08:46.649 --> 00:08:48.851
  • [applause]
  • 00:08:48.951 --> 00:08:52.688
  • SOMETIMES IT'S SAYING,"OKAY, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:08:52.788 --> 00:08:53.789
  • LEAVE MY COMFORT ZONE.I CAN'T DO THIS."
  • 00:08:53.889 --> 00:08:56.459
  • OH REALLY?
  • 00:08:56.559 --> 00:08:58.027
  • ACTUALLY, YOU CAN DO ALLTHINGS THROUGH CHRIST
  • 00:08:58.127 --> 00:09:00.363
  • WHO STRENGTHENS YOU.THAT'S WHAT JACK DID.
  • 00:09:00.463 --> 00:09:03.432
  • LISTEN, THE FUTUREBELONGS TO RISK TAKERS,
  • 00:09:03.532 --> 00:09:07.203
  • NOT GROUND HOLDERS.
  • 00:09:07.303 --> 00:09:09.605
  • YOU LOOK AT PEOPLE THATHAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:09:09.705 --> 00:09:12.241
  • IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION.PEOPLE THAT TOOK RISKS.
  • 00:09:12.341 --> 00:09:16.646
  • PEOPLE WHO DIDBOLD THINGS.
  • 00:09:16.746 --> 00:09:18.881
  • IN SOME CASES, PEOPLEWHO BET THE FARM.
  • 00:09:18.981 --> 00:09:21.550
  • CREATIVE PEOPLE LIKETHOMAS EDISON, HENRY FORD,
  • 00:09:21.651 --> 00:09:25.855
  • WALT DISNEY, STEVEJOBS, ELON MUSK.
  • 00:09:25.955 --> 00:09:29.892
  • THEY DID THINGS THAT OTHERPEOPLE HAVE NOT DONE AND
  • 00:09:29.992 --> 00:09:33.262
  • THEN I THINK OF BELIEVERSLIKE BILLY GRAHAM WHO WAS
  • 00:09:33.362 --> 00:09:35.765
  • SO INNOVATIVE IN HIS WAY.
  • 00:09:35.865 --> 00:09:37.867
  • AND THERE'S ALWAYS THEARMCHAIR QUARTERBACKS.
  • 00:09:37.967 --> 00:09:40.636
  • THERE'S ALWAYS THE PEOPLESITTING ON THE SIDELINES
  • 00:09:40.736 --> 00:09:43.572
  • AND CRITIQUING AND NIPPINGAT THE HEELS OF THOSE WHO
  • 00:09:43.673 --> 00:09:47.376
  • ARE WILLING TO GO OUTAND DO SOMETHING FOR THE
  • 00:09:47.476 --> 00:09:49.478
  • KINGDOM OF GOD AND MOST OFTHESE PEOPLE THAT LOVE TO
  • 00:09:49.578 --> 00:09:52.281
  • CRITIQUE LIVE IN THEWORLD OF SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:09:52.381 --> 00:09:56.185
  • ESPECIALLY TWITTER.
  • 00:09:56.285 --> 00:09:57.987
  • THEY THINK THEY HAVE THEGIFT OF CRITICIZING AND
  • 00:09:58.087 --> 00:10:01.857
  • BRINGING OTHERPEOPLE DOWN.
  • 00:10:01.957 --> 00:10:03.592
  • BY THE WAY, THAT'SNOT A GIFT AT ALL.
  • 00:10:03.693 --> 00:10:05.961
  • BUT WHAT A WASTE OF TIME.
  • 00:10:06.062 --> 00:10:09.031
  • TO SPEND YOUR LIFE TEARINGOTHER PEOPLE DOWN.
  • 00:10:09.131 --> 00:10:12.334
  • WHY DON'T YOU GOACCOMPLISH SOMETHING FOR
  • 00:10:12.435 --> 00:10:14.503
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD INSTEADAND TAKE A RISK
  • 00:10:14.603 --> 00:10:17.473
  • AND LEAVE YOUR COMFORTZONE AND SEE WHAT
  • 00:10:17.573 --> 00:10:19.742
  • THE LORD WILLDO THROUGH YOU.
  • 00:10:19.842 --> 00:10:23.412
  • THAT'S WHAT MOSESWAS WILLING TO DO.
  • 00:10:23.512 --> 00:10:26.115
  • SO HE'S SAYING, "WELL,LORD, I'M NOT QUALIFIED."
  • 00:10:26.215 --> 00:10:29.719
  • THAT'S EXCUSE NUMBERFOUR, VERSE 13.
  • 00:10:29.819 --> 00:10:32.254
  • "OH GOD, PLEASE SEND BYYOUR HAND WHOMEVER ELSE
  • 00:10:32.354 --> 00:10:37.693
  • YOU WILL SEND.' ANOTHERTRANSLATION PUTS IT THIS
  • 00:10:37.793 --> 00:10:41.397
  • WAY, "OH LORD, PLEASE SENDSOMEONE ELSE." BY THE WAY,
  • 00:10:41.497 --> 00:10:45.868
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THE ANGEROF THE LORD BURNED TOWARD HIM.
  • 00:10:45.968 --> 00:10:50.072
  • LOOK, I DON'T KNOW ABOUTYOU, BUT I DON'T WANT
  • 00:10:50.172 --> 00:10:51.774
  • GOD MAD AT ME OKAY.THIS TICKED OFF GOD.
  • 00:10:51.874 --> 00:10:55.111
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULDUSE THAT PHRASE, "TICKED
  • 00:10:55.211 --> 00:10:57.513
  • OFF GOD." THAT'S PROBABLYNOT THE RIGHT PHRASE.
  • 00:10:57.613 --> 00:10:59.348
  • THIS ANGERED THE LORDBECAUSE TICKED OFF SORT OF
  • 00:10:59.448 --> 00:11:01.650
  • IMPLIES LOSING ONES TEMPERAND GOD DOESN'T LOSE HIS
  • 00:11:01.751 --> 00:11:04.620
  • TEMPER AS YOU OR I MIGHT.
  • 00:11:04.720 --> 00:11:07.323
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE IF GODHAD A TEMPER TANTRUM?
  • 00:11:07.423 --> 00:11:10.593
  • THAT'D BE SCARY.
  • 00:11:10.693 --> 00:11:12.161
  • PLANETS FLYINGAROUND YOU KNOW.
  • 00:11:12.261 --> 00:11:13.696
  • [laughter]
  • 00:11:13.796 --> 00:11:15.664
  • HE DOESN'T EXPRESSANGER THE WAY WE DO,
  • 00:11:15.765 --> 00:11:17.399
  • BUT HE DOES HAVE ANGER.
  • 00:11:17.500 --> 00:11:18.768
  • IT'S RIGHTEOUSINDIGNATION.
  • 00:11:18.868 --> 00:11:20.503
  • THE LORD WAS NOTHAPPY WITH MOSES.
  • 00:11:20.603 --> 00:11:22.138
  • LIKE, "MAN, COME ON.
  • 00:11:22.238 --> 00:11:24.039
  • I'VE TOLD YOU I'MGOING TO BE WITH YOU.
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:25.875
  • I'VE SHOWN YOU I CAN DOMIRACLES THROUGH YOU.
  • 00:11:25.975 --> 00:11:28.377
  • IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO STEPUP AND DO WHAT I'M CALLING
  • 00:11:28.477 --> 00:11:31.347
  • YOU TO DO." MOSESEFFECTIVELY SAYS,
  • 00:11:31.447 --> 00:11:34.450
  • "HERE I AM, LORD,SEND HIM."
  • 00:11:34.550 --> 00:11:36.719
  • [laughter]
  • 00:11:36.819 --> 00:11:38.621
  • DON'T WE DO THAT?
  • 00:11:38.721 --> 00:11:39.822
  • YOU KNOW, MAYBE SOMEONEGETS UP AT CHURCH AND
  • 00:11:39.922 --> 00:11:41.924
  • SAYS, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:11:42.024 --> 00:11:42.825
  • WE NEED HELP INSUNDAY SCHOOL.
  • 00:11:42.925 --> 00:11:44.994
  • WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TOSERVE UP THERE."
  • 00:11:45.094 --> 00:11:47.363
  • AND WE'RE SAYING,"THAT'S SO AWESOME.

  • I LOVE OURCHILDREN'S MINISTRY.
  • 00:11:48.731 --> 00:11:50.232
  • YES, LORD, HERE I AM.SEND THEM."

  • IN FACT, I LOVE WHATGOD HAS DONE IN MY LIFE

  • HERE I AM, LORD,LET SOMEBODY ELSE GIVE,"
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:13.022
  • AND YOU MISS THATOPPORTUNITY TO GIVE.
  • 00:12:13.122 --> 00:12:16.025
  • YOU KNOW, KIND OF A SADSTATISTIC BUT 11 PERCENT
  • 00:12:16.125 --> 00:12:20.029
  • OF OUR CHURCH TITHESREGULARLY AND IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:12:20.129 --> 00:12:24.934
  • OF THEIR FAITHFUL GIVINGWE'RE ABLE TO DO WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:12:25.034 --> 00:12:28.337
  • 11 PERCENT.CAN YOU IMAGINE?
  • 00:12:28.437 --> 00:12:32.174
  • FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU'REIN THE 11 PERCENT,
  • 00:12:32.274 --> 00:12:33.709
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:12:33.809 --> 00:12:37.179
  • BUT CAN YOU IMAGINE HOWMUCH MORE WE COULD DO IF
  • 00:12:37.279 --> 00:12:40.082
  • THE REST OF US WOULDSTEP UP AND DISCOVER
  • 00:12:40.182 --> 00:12:43.319
  • THE JOY OF GIVING?
  • 00:12:43.419 --> 00:12:44.620
  • YOU SEE, A LOT OF TIMESIT'S US SAYING, "WELL, I
  • 00:12:44.720 --> 00:12:47.423
  • BELIEVE THIS BUT HAVESOMEBODY ELSE DO IT.
  • 00:12:47.523 --> 00:12:49.859
  • I DON'T WANT TO BETHE PERSON TO DO IT.
  • 00:12:49.959 --> 00:12:52.294
  • THE FACT IS, HE SAYS, "OHLORD, SEND SOMEONE ELSE."
  • 00:12:52.394 --> 00:12:56.398
  • DO YOU SEE A PROBLEMWITH THAT STATEMENT?
  • 00:12:56.498 --> 00:12:57.933
  • OH LORD, SENDSOMEONE ELSE.
  • 00:12:58.033 --> 00:13:01.971
  • THERE WAS AN OCCASION WHENJESUS TALKED ABOUT THE
  • 00:13:02.071 --> 00:13:05.374
  • FACT THAT HE WAS GOING TODIE ON A CROSS AND PETER
  • 00:13:05.474 --> 00:13:08.310
  • THOUGHT THIS WASA REALLY BAD IDEA.
  • 00:13:08.410 --> 00:13:10.379
  • AND SO PETER SAID TOJESUS, "NOT SO, LORD."
  • 00:13:10.479 --> 00:13:13.883
  • AND THEN JESUS REBUKEDHIM FOR THAT.
  • 00:13:13.983 --> 00:13:17.152
  • YOU CAN'T REALLY SAY,"NOT SO, LORD." THERE ARE
  • 00:13:17.253 --> 00:13:21.223
  • CERTAIN WORDS THAT DON'TGO WITH THE WORD LORD.
  • 00:13:21.323 --> 00:13:23.726
  • "NO" IS ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:13:23.826 --> 00:13:25.794
  • "NOT SO" IS ANOTHERONE OF THEM.
  • 00:13:25.895 --> 00:13:28.097
  • THERE'S ONE WORD THAT GOESWITH THE WORD OR THE TITLE
  • 00:13:28.197 --> 00:13:31.066
  • LORD AND THAT WORDIS "YES, LORD."
  • 00:13:31.166 --> 00:13:34.637
  • NOT "NO, LORD." BECAUSEIF I SAY "NO, LORD,"
  • 00:13:34.737 --> 00:13:39.375
  • IS HE REALLY THE LORD?
  • 00:13:39.475 --> 00:13:41.143
  • BECAUSE IF HE'S LORD,WHICH IMPLIES CONTROL AND
  • 00:13:41.243 --> 00:13:44.513
  • KINGSHIP AND LORDSHIP OVERME THEN I SHOULD BE SAYING YES.
  • 00:13:44.613 --> 00:13:49.418
  • WELL, "NO, LORD.GET SOMEBODY ELSE."
  • 00:13:49.518 --> 00:13:53.923
  • AND THEN MOSES HAS THE BRIGHTIDEA OF HAVING HIS BROTHER
  • 00:13:54.023 --> 00:13:56.725
  • AARON DO ALL THE TALKING.
  • 00:13:56.825 --> 00:13:58.994
  • "YOU KNOW WHAT, LORD?
  • 00:13:59.094 --> 00:13:59.929
  • I'M NOT ELOQUENT,BUT MY BROTHER AARON
  • 00:14:00.029 --> 00:14:03.065
  • HE'S A SILVER-TONGUED ORATOR.
  • 00:14:03.165 --> 00:14:05.768
  • GET HIM TO DOALL THE TALKING.
  • 00:14:05.868 --> 00:14:07.937
  • I'LL GO ALONG WITH IT.
  • 00:14:08.037 --> 00:14:09.138
  • I'LL BE INVOLVED IN IT,BUT AARON'S THE MAN." AND
  • 00:14:09.238 --> 00:14:12.207
  • THE LORD SAID "OKAY." BUTTHAT WAS NOT HIS PLAN.
  • 00:14:12.308 --> 00:14:15.911
  • GOD'S PLAN WAS FOR MOSESTO DO IT AND MOSES SAID,
  • 00:14:16.011 --> 00:14:19.949
  • "HOW ABOUT IFAARON DOES IT?"
  • 00:14:20.049 --> 00:14:21.517
  • AND THE LORDSAYS, "ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:14:21.617 --> 00:14:22.551

  • 00:15:54.443 --> 00:15:56.045
  • YOU MIGHT GET IT.
  • 00:15:56.145 --> 00:15:57.279
  • THAT'S A SILLYGENIE STORY.
  • 00:15:57.379 --> 00:16:01.150
  • BY THE WAY, GENIESAREN'T REAL.
  • 00:16:01.250 --> 00:16:02.551
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNEWTHAT, BUT CLEAR THAT UP.
  • 00:16:02.651 --> 00:16:05.521
  • BUT HERE'S WHY AARONWAS A BAD CHOICE.
  • 00:16:05.621 --> 00:16:08.824
  • BECAUSE MOSES HAD TO RUN AREALLY IMPORTANT ERRAND.
  • 00:16:08.924 --> 00:16:13.595
  • HE HAD TO GO UP TO MOUNTSINAI AND RECEIVE THE
  • 00:16:13.695 --> 00:16:16.165
  • 10 COMMANDMENTS WRITTEN BYTHE FINGER OF GOD ON STONE
  • 00:16:16.265 --> 00:16:19.301
  • AND HE LEFTAARON IN CHARGE.
  • 00:16:19.401 --> 00:16:21.170
  • WHEN MOSES RETURNS FROMMOUNT SINAI IT SOUNDS LIKE
  • 00:16:21.270 --> 00:16:25.040
  • THERE'S A WAR GOING ONAND AS HE GETS CLOSER,
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:27.943
  • IT'S A PARTY.
  • 00:16:28.043 --> 00:16:29.311
  • EVEN WORSE, IT'S A WICKEDPARTY AND THE PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:16:29.411 --> 00:16:33.182
  • DANCING AROUNDA GOLDEN CALF.
  • 00:16:33.282 --> 00:16:35.484
  • HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
  • 00:16:35.584 --> 00:16:36.685
  • AARON, WHO HE LEFT INCHARGE, SAID TO THE PEOPLE
  • 00:16:36.785 --> 00:16:39.321
  • OF ISRAEL, "BRING ALL OFYOUR BLING, BRING ALL OF
  • 00:16:39.421 --> 00:16:42.491
  • YOUR GOLD, ALL YOURJEWELRY, ALL YOUR STUFF
  • 00:16:42.591 --> 00:16:44.793
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO MOLD ITINTO THE SHAPE OF A GOLDEN
  • 00:16:44.893 --> 00:16:47.696
  • CALF," AND THEN HE SAID TOTHE PEOPLE, "THIS GOLDEN
  • 00:16:47.796 --> 00:16:50.799
  • CALF BROUGHT YOU OUT OFEGYPT." SO THEY'RE DANCING
  • 00:16:50.899 --> 00:16:53.102
  • AROUND IT WORSHIPPING IT,AND MOSES SHOWS UP AND
  • 00:16:53.202 --> 00:16:56.705
  • AARON SAYS, "I KNOW THISLOOKS BAD, BUT I CAN
  • 00:16:56.805 --> 00:16:59.408
  • EXPLAIN EVERYTHING."YEAH, YOU SHOULD'VE
  • 00:16:59.508 --> 00:17:01.710
  • NEVER BEEN IN CHARGE.
  • 00:17:01.810 --> 00:17:03.479
  • SO THAT'S WHAT MOSES ASKEDFOR AND THAT'S WHAT HE GOT
  • 00:17:03.579 --> 00:17:06.381
  • AND IT DIDN'TWORK OUT SO WELL.
  • 00:17:06.482 --> 00:17:08.784
  • OKAY, NOW LET'SFAST FORWARD
  • 00:17:08.884 --> 00:17:10.652
  • TO THE CLOSE OF THIS STORY.
  • 00:17:10.752 --> 00:17:12.621
  • SO NOW MOSES FINALLYACCEPTS THE CALL OF GOD.
  • 00:17:12.721 --> 00:17:15.324
  • HE'S READY TO DO WHAT THELORD HAS CALLED HIM TO DO.
  • 00:17:15.424 --> 00:17:18.360
  • HE GOES HOME AND HEINFORMS HIS FATHER-IN-LAW.
  • 00:17:18.460 --> 00:17:21.263
  • HE GATHERS UP HIS WIFEZIPPORAH AND HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:17:21.363 --> 00:17:24.833
  • AND THEY BEGIN TO MAKETHE JOURNEY TO EGYPT TO
  • 00:17:24.933 --> 00:17:29.872
  • DELIVER ISRAEL BUT THERE'SA PROBLEM AND THE PROBLEM
  • 00:17:29.972 --> 00:17:34.009
  • IS THERE'S A PRICETO BE A LEADER.
  • 00:17:34.109 --> 00:17:36.111
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE ALEADER, THE FIRST PLACE YOU
  • 00:17:36.211 --> 00:17:39.214
  • HAVE TO LEAD WELLIS IN YOUR HOME.
  • 00:17:39.314 --> 00:17:41.850
  • WELL, HIS WIFE ZIPPORAHWAS NOT HAPPY WITH HIM.
  • 00:17:41.950 --> 00:17:45.487
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "IF MOMMAAIN'T HAPPY, AIN'T NOBODY
  • 00:17:45.587 --> 00:17:48.524
  • HAPPY." ACTUALLY, THEBIBLE DOESN'T SAY THAT,
  • 00:17:48.624 --> 00:17:51.260
  • BUT IT'S A PRETTY TRUESTATEMENT IS IT NOT?
  • 00:17:51.360 --> 00:17:54.396
  • ZIPPORAH WAS NOT HAPPY. WHY?
  • 00:17:54.496 --> 00:17:56.598
  • BECAUSE MOSES AND ALL OFHIS BUSYNESS TO SERVE GOD
  • 00:17:56.698 --> 00:18:00.302
  • HAD NEGLECTED HISRESPONSIBILITIES IN THE
  • 00:18:00.402 --> 00:18:04.273
  • HOME AND HE HAD NOTCIRCUMCISED HIS SON.
  • 00:18:04.373 --> 00:18:07.743
  • SO SHE CIRCUMCISED THE BOYAND CONFRONTED MOSES OVER THIS.
  • 00:18:07.843 --> 00:18:13.348
  • SO NOW MOSES KIND OF TOOKIT ON THE CHIN BECAUSE HE
  • 00:18:13.448 --> 00:18:17.052
  • KNEW SHE WAS RIGHT, SOHERE'S A TAKEAWAY POINT.
  • 00:18:17.152 --> 00:18:20.556
  • HUSBANDS, PAY ATTENTION.
  • 00:18:20.656 --> 00:18:22.758
  • HUSBANDS, LISTENTO YOUR WIVES.
  • 00:18:22.858 --> 00:18:25.861
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THEYHAVE TO SAY TO YOU.
  • 00:18:25.961 --> 00:18:28.630
  • GOD WILL REVEAL THINGS TOYOU THAT YOU ARE MISSING
  • 00:18:28.730 --> 00:18:32.167
  • AND I KNOW SOMETIMES YOUDON'T LIKE WHAT YOUR
  • 00:18:32.267 --> 00:18:34.536
  • WIVES ARE SAYING TO YOU.
  • 00:18:34.636 --> 00:18:36.838
  • YOU THINK YOU KNOW BETTER,BUT LISTEN, AND THE BIBLE
  • 00:18:36.939 --> 00:18:40.275
  • EVEN SAYS SPECIFICALLYTO HUSBANDS:
  • 00:18:40.375 --> 00:18:42.844
  • "HUSBANDS, GIVE HONOR TOYOUR WIFE. TREAT YOUR WIFE
  • 00:18:42.945 --> 00:18:46.248
  • WITH UNDERSTANDINGAS YOU LIVE TOGETHER.
  • 00:18:46.348 --> 00:18:48.317
  • SHE MAY BE WEAKER THANYOU, BUT SHE'S YOUR EQUAL
  • 00:18:48.417 --> 00:18:51.286
  • PARTNER AND GOD'SGIFT OF NEW LIFE.
  • 00:18:51.386 --> 00:18:53.455
  • TREAT HER AS YOU SHOULDSO YOUR PRAYERS
  • 00:18:53.555 --> 00:18:55.457
  • WILL NOT BE HINDERED."GIVE HONOR TO YOUR WIFE.
  • 00:18:55.557 --> 00:18:59.061
  • GIVE RESPECT TO YOUR WIFE.
  • 00:18:59.161 --> 00:19:00.462
  • LISTEN TO YOUR WIFE, ANDIF YOU DON'T, THE BIBLE
  • 00:19:00.562 --> 00:19:04.166
  • SAYS YOUR PRAYERSCAN BE HINDERED.
  • 00:19:04.266 --> 00:19:05.767
  • HUSBANDS, IS IT POSSIBLETHAT MAYBE ONE OF THE
  • 00:19:05.867 --> 00:19:08.971
  • REASONS YOUR PRAYERS HAVENOT BEEN ANSWERED IN THE
  • 00:19:09.071 --> 00:19:11.039
  • AFFIRMATIVE LATELY ISBECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GIVING
  • 00:19:11.139 --> 00:19:13.508
  • THE RESPECT TO YOURWIFE THAT YOU SHOULD.
  • 00:19:13.609 --> 00:19:16.178
  • AND HERE'S ANOTHER THINGI WOULD BRING OUT OF THIS
  • 00:19:16.278 --> 00:19:18.313
  • STORY - ZIPPORAH ISCALLING OUT MOSES AND
  • 00:19:18.413 --> 00:19:21.116
  • EFFECTIVELY SAYING,"YOU'RE NOT BEING
  • 00:19:21.216 --> 00:19:22.985
  • THE SPIRITUAL LEADERIN THIS HOME.
  • 00:19:23.085 --> 00:19:24.987
  • I'M DOING WHAT YOUSHOULD'VE DONE."
  • 00:19:25.087 --> 00:19:26.922
  • AND THAT'S TRUE IN FAR TOOMANY CHRISTIAN HOMES TODAY.
  • 00:19:27.022 --> 00:19:30.158
  • THE WIFE IS NOTONLY DOING HER PART,
  • 00:19:30.259 --> 00:19:32.361
  • SHE'S DOING THEHUSBANDS PART.
  • 00:19:32.461 --> 00:19:34.696
  • THE HUSBAND NEEDS TOBE A SPIRITUAL LEADER.
  • 00:19:34.796 --> 00:19:38.667
  • THE HUSBANDS SHOULD BETAKING POINT IN THESE THINGS.
  • 00:19:38.767 --> 00:19:41.903
  • BUT IN FAR TOO MANY HOMES,IT'S THE WIFE THAT SAYS,
  • 00:19:42.004 --> 00:19:44.906
  • "LET'S PRAY BEFORE WEEAT." THE HUSBAND IS
  • 00:19:45.007 --> 00:19:47.509
  • ALREADY HALFWAYTHROUGH HIS MEAL.
  • 00:19:47.609 --> 00:19:48.744
  • [growling sound]
  • 00:19:48.844 --> 00:19:49.778
  • [laughter]
  • 00:19:49.878 --> 00:19:51.280
  • AND THE KIDS ARE WITH HIM.
  • 00:19:51.380 --> 00:19:51.947
  • [growling sound]
  • 00:19:52.047 --> 00:19:53.649
  • THE WIFE IS LIKE, "UH,WE DIDN'T PRAY." SO MANY
  • 00:19:53.749 --> 00:19:57.085
  • TIMES IT'S THE WIFE THATSAYS, "HEY, LET'S GET READY.
  • 00:19:57.185 --> 00:19:59.254
  • IT'S TIME TO GO TO CHURCH."
  • 00:19:59.354 --> 00:20:00.555
  • "OH, I HAVE OTHERTHINGS I WANT TO DO.
  • 00:20:00.656 --> 00:20:02.858
  • I CAN'T GO." YEAH,COME ON, MAN. MAN UP.
  • 00:20:02.958 --> 00:20:06.995
  • MAN UP AS A MAN OF GOD.
  • 00:20:07.095 --> 00:20:09.097
  • I'M TELLING YOU RIGHT NOW,IF MEN WOULD TAKE THEIR
  • 00:20:09.197 --> 00:20:12.534
  • RESPONSIBILITIES ASHUSBANDS SERIOUSLY
  • 00:20:12.634 --> 00:20:15.370
  • AND BE THE SPIRITUALLEADERS THAT GOD HAS CALLED
  • 00:20:15.470 --> 00:20:17.973
  • THEM TO BE IT WOULDCHANGE OUR NATION.
  • 00:20:18.073 --> 00:20:21.243
  • BECAUSE THIS IS WHERETHE BREAKDOWN IS.
  • 00:20:21.343 --> 00:20:23.245
  • [applause]
  • 00:20:23.345 --> 00:20:27.849
  • THIS IS WHERE THEBREAKDOWN IN OUR COUNTRY IS.
  • 00:20:27.949 --> 00:20:30.519
  • YOU CAN TAKE ALMOST EVERYSOCIAL ILL FROM PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:20:30.619 --> 00:20:34.556
  • END UP SERVING TIME INPRISON TO PEOPLE WHO END
  • 00:20:34.656 --> 00:20:37.526
  • UP IN DRUGS OR DRINKING ORGIRLS THAT GET PREGNANT
  • 00:20:37.626 --> 00:20:42.664
  • OUTSIDE OF BEING MARRIEDAND ON AND ON IT GOES.
  • 00:20:42.764 --> 00:20:46.168
  • YOU CAN TRACE ALMOST EVERYONE TO THE BREAKDOWN OF
  • 00:20:46.268 --> 00:20:49.137
  • THE FAMILY ANDSPECIFICALLY TO THE
  • 00:20:49.237 --> 00:20:50.939
  • ABSENCE OF A FATHER.
  • 00:20:51.039 --> 00:20:52.874
  • FATHERS, WE NEED TO TAKEOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
  • 00:20:52.974 --> 00:20:56.044
  • SERIOUSLY AND BE THE MANTHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE.
  • 00:20:56.144 --> 00:21:00.215
  • IT CAN MAKE ALLTHE DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:21:00.315 --> 00:21:02.050
  • SO MOSES HAD TO GET ITTOGETHER IN HIS HOME FIRST.
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:06.355
  • WELL, THERE'S JUSTONE LAST THING TO DO.
  • 00:21:06.455 --> 00:21:08.390
  • HE NEEDS TO GO AND TELLTHE ISRAELITES HE'S ABOUT
  • 00:21:08.490 --> 00:21:11.326
  • TO DELIVER THEM AND HENEEDS TO MEET WITH THE
  • 00:21:11.426 --> 00:21:14.329
  • LEADERS AND SO WE GO OVERTO EXODUS 4:29 AND, "MOSES
  • 00:21:14.429 --> 00:21:18.867
  • AND AARON RETURN TO EGYPTAND CALL ALL THE ELDERS OF
  • 00:21:18.967 --> 00:21:21.837
  • ISRAEL TOGETHER AND AARONTOLD THEM EVERYTHING THE
  • 00:21:21.937 --> 00:21:24.573
  • LORD HAD TOLD MOSES ANDMOSES PERFORMED THE
  • 00:21:24.673 --> 00:21:27.209
  • MIRACULOUS SIGNSAS THEY WATCHED.
  • 00:21:27.309 --> 00:21:29.845
  • THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WERECONVINCED THE LORD HAD
  • 00:21:29.945 --> 00:21:32.647
  • SENT MOSES AND AARON ANDWHEN THEY HEARD THAT THE
  • 00:21:32.748 --> 00:21:35.183
  • LORD WAS CONCERNED ABOUTTHEM AND HAD SEEN THEIR
  • 00:21:35.283 --> 00:21:37.853
  • MISERY, THEY BOWED DOWNAND WORSHIPPED." THEY WERE
  • 00:21:37.953 --> 00:21:41.990
  • SO EXCITED TO KNOW THATGOD WAS AWARE OF WHAT
  • 00:21:42.090 --> 00:21:44.493
  • THEY WERE GOING THROUGH.IT MADE A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:21:44.593 --> 00:21:46.728
  • DOESN'T IT MAKE ADIFFERENCE TO YOU TO
  • 00:21:46.828 --> 00:21:49.865
  • KNOW THAT GODCARES ABOUT YOU?
  • 00:21:49.965 --> 00:21:51.833
  • GOD'S AWARE OFYOUR SUFFERING.
  • 00:21:51.933 --> 00:21:53.869
  • YOU'VE COME HERE TODAYTO CHURCH AND SOME
  • 00:21:53.969 --> 00:21:56.304
  • OF YOU ARE SUFFERING.
  • 00:21:56.405 --> 00:21:58.206
  • SOME OF YOU AREIN GREAT PAIN.
  • 00:21:58.306 --> 00:22:00.976
  • SOME OF YOU HAVE MINDS THAT AREJUST FILLED WITH QUESTIONS.
  • 00:22:01.076 --> 00:22:04.413
  • IT MIGHT BE PHYSICALISSUES YOU'RE DEALING WITH
  • 00:22:04.513 --> 00:22:07.349
  • BUT WHATEVER IT IS YOU THINK,"NO ONE CARES ABOUT ME.
  • 00:22:07.449 --> 00:22:09.684
  • GOD DOESN'T EVENCARE ABOUT ME.
  • 00:22:09.785 --> 00:22:11.286
  • NOTHING COULD BEFURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
  • 00:22:11.386 --> 00:22:13.755
  • THE LORD SAYS, "I KNOW WHATMY PEOPLE ARE GOING THROUGH.
  • 00:22:13.855 --> 00:22:16.091
  • I CARE ABOUT THEM," ANDYOU NEED TO REMEMBER THIS
  • 00:22:16.191 --> 00:22:18.894
  • SIMPLE THING THAT ONE DAYGOD IS GOING TO RIGHT
  • 00:22:18.994 --> 00:22:21.530
  • EVERY WRONG IN YOUR LIFEAND HE'S GOING TO WIPE
  • 00:22:21.630 --> 00:22:24.299
  • AWAY EVERY TEAR AND HE'SGOING TO USE YOUR PAIN.
  • 00:22:24.399 --> 00:22:28.336
  • HE'S GOING TO USE YOURPAIN AS A TOOL TO HELP
  • 00:22:28.437 --> 00:22:32.374
  • OTHERS WHO AREALSO IN PAIN.
  • 00:22:32.474 --> 00:22:35.610
  • WHY DOES GOD WANT TOUSE SOMEONE LIKE ME
  • 00:22:35.710 --> 00:22:38.280
  • AND SOMEONE LIKE YOU?
  • 00:22:38.380 --> 00:22:39.581
  • I HAVE NO IDEA, BUT I'LLTELL YOU THIS MUCH,
  • 00:22:39.681 --> 00:22:43.118
  • HE DOES AND I KNOWHE LOVES US.
  • 00:22:43.218 --> 00:22:45.620
  • GOD SAID TO ISRAEL, "IDIDN'T CHOOSE YOU BECAUSE
  • 00:22:45.720 --> 00:22:48.457
  • YOU WERE GREAT IN NUMBER.
  • 00:22:48.557 --> 00:22:50.325
  • I CHOSE YOU BECAUSEI LOVED YOU.
  • 00:22:50.425 --> 00:22:53.328
  • THAT'S WHY." THAT'S WHYGOD HAS CHOSEN YOU AND
  • 00:22:53.428 --> 00:22:57.599
  • CHOSEN ME TO BEHIS INSTRUMENTS.
  • 00:22:57.699 --> 00:23:00.268
  • ONE PERSON PUT IT THISWAY, "GOD USES PATHETIC
  • 00:23:00.368 --> 00:23:03.138
  • PEOPLE FOR HIS GLORIOUSPURPOSE TO SHOW HIS
  • 00:23:03.238 --> 00:23:06.408
  • SUPERIOR POWER."I LIKE THAT.
  • 00:23:06.508 --> 00:23:09.511
  • PATHETIC PEOPLE - THAT'SUS - FOR HIS GLORIOUS
  • 00:23:09.611 --> 00:23:13.849
  • PURPOSE TO SHOW HISGLORIOUS- EXCUSE ME, TO
  • 00:23:13.949 --> 00:23:18.186
  • SHOW HIS SUPERIOR POWER.
  • 00:23:18.286 --> 00:23:20.355
  • SO LET'S REVIEW AND CLOSE.
  • 00:23:20.455 --> 00:23:22.657
  • WHY CAN'T GOD USE US?
  • 00:23:22.757 --> 00:23:24.459
  • WE SAY, "WELL, I DON'TDESERVE TO BE USED BY
  • 00:23:24.559 --> 00:23:26.495
  • GOD." SHORT ANSWER: NO ONEDOES, BUT GOD DOES HIS
  • 00:23:26.595 --> 00:23:30.365
  • BEST WORK THROUGHWEAK PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:30.465 --> 00:23:32.634
  • YOU MIGHT SAY, "WELL,I DON'T HAVE ALL THE
  • 00:23:32.734 --> 00:23:34.436
  • ANSWERS." THAT MAY BETRUE, BUT GOD'S WORD DOES
  • 00:23:34.536 --> 00:23:37.806
  • AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONGWITH SAYING TO SOMEONE,
  • 00:23:37.906 --> 00:23:40.675
  • "YOU KNOW, I DON'T HAVETHE ANSWER TO THAT
  • 00:23:40.775 --> 00:23:42.844
  • QUESTION YOU JUST ASKED MEBUT THERE ARE ANSWERS AND
  • 00:23:42.944 --> 00:23:46.014
  • I'LL GET BACK TO YOU ONTHAT." YOU MIGHT SAY,
  • 00:23:46.114 --> 00:23:48.283
  • "WELL, I'M NOT A GOODSPEAKER." THAT MAY BE TRUE
  • 00:23:48.383 --> 00:23:50.819
  • BUT YOU HAVE GOOD NEWSABOUT A GOOD GOD.
  • 00:23:50.919 --> 00:23:53.855
  • GOD DOES NOT NEED GOODSPEAKERS AS MUCH AS HE IS
  • 00:23:53.955 --> 00:23:58.093
  • LOOKING FOROBEDIENT SERVANTS.
  • 00:23:58.193 --> 00:24:00.795
  • YOU MIGHT SAY, "WELL, THEPEOPLE WON'T BELIEVE ME,"
  • 00:24:00.896 --> 00:24:03.698

  • TRUST IN HIM AND THEAUTHORITY OF HIS WORD.
  • 00:24:05.700 --> 00:24:10.005
  • ONE LAST THOUGHT, AND WHENA PREACHER SAYS THAT THAT
  • 00:24:10.105 --> 00:24:13.408
  • MEANS HE MAY GO ON FOR20 MORE MINUTES,
  • 00:24:13.508 --> 00:24:15.243
  • BECAUSE THOUGHTS CAN BE LONG.
  • 00:24:15.343 --> 00:24:16.845
  • IT MAY BE SHORT. WE'LL SEE.
  • 00:24:16.945 --> 00:24:18.580
  • ONE LAST THOUGHT, PEOPLEOFFER UP EXCUSES AS TO WHY
  • 00:24:18.680 --> 00:24:24.019
  • THEY'RE NOT CHRISTIANS ANDPROBABLY THE NUMBER ONE
  • 00:24:24.119 --> 00:24:26.922
  • EXCUSE IS "WELL THE REASONI'M NOT A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:24:27.022 --> 00:24:30.725
  • IS THERE'S TOO MANYHYPOCRITES IN THE CHURCH."
  • 00:24:30.825 --> 00:24:34.396
  • I WISH I COULD SAYWELL THAT'S NOT TRUE,
  • 00:24:34.496 --> 00:24:36.798
  • BUT WE KNOW IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:24:36.898 --> 00:24:39.234
  • HYPOCRITES IN THE CHURCHYEAH, THERE'S A FEW.
  • 00:24:39.334 --> 00:24:42.337
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT I WOULDSAY, "THERE'S ALWAYS ROOM
  • 00:24:42.437 --> 00:24:44.973

  • [laughter]
  • 00:24:46.741 --> 00:24:49.311
  • NOW, I'M NOT EXCUSINGHYPOCRISY, BUT MAYBE WE
  • 00:24:49.411 --> 00:24:53.048
  • NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHATHYPOCRISY IS BECAUSE I
  • 00:24:53.148 --> 00:24:56.484
  • THINK WE'RE REALLY QUICKTO THROW DOWN THE H WORD.
  • 00:24:56.585 --> 00:24:59.120
  • SOMEONE DOES SOMETHINGTHAT'S INCONSISTENT,
  • 00:24:59.220 --> 00:25:01.690
  • "YOU HYPOCRITE." AND WE'LLEVEN PUT EMPHASIS ON THE H.
  • 00:25:01.790 --> 00:25:05.093

  • OKAY. WHAT IS HYPOCRISY?
  • 00:25:13.068 --> 00:25:15.403
  • THE WORD IN THE BIBLEMEANS AN ACTOR.
  • 00:25:15.503 --> 00:25:18.640
  • THAT'S THE ROOT WORD, ACTOR.A PERFORMER.
  • 00:25:18.740 --> 00:25:21.276
  • SOMEONE WHO IS PLAYING APART, AND IN THIS CASE,
  • 00:25:21.376 --> 00:25:24.646
  • THEY'RE PLAYING THEPART OF A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:25:24.746 --> 00:25:26.648
  • I SHOW UP AT CHURCH.HI, I'M A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:25:26.748 --> 00:25:29.985
  • SMILE ON MY FACE.BIBLE IN MY HAND.

  • AND THE MOMENT I LEAVEI'M ANOTHER PERSON.
  • 00:25:35.523 --> 00:25:37.759
  • IT'S ALL BEEN AN ACT. OKAY.THAT IS CLASSIC HYPOCRISY.
  • 00:25:37.859 --> 00:25:41.296
  • HERE'S WHAT IS NOTNECESSARILY HYPOCRISY.
  • 00:25:41.396 --> 00:25:44.432
  • IT'S WHEN I TELL SOMEONEI BELIEVE SOMETHING
  • 00:25:44.532 --> 00:25:47.369
  • AND I CONTRADICT IT.I LOSE MY TEMPER.
  • 00:25:47.469 --> 00:25:50.772
  • I DO SOMETHING ELSE. THAT'SNOT HYPOCRISY, FOLKS.
  • 00:25:50.872 --> 00:25:54.342
  • THAT'S HUMANITY.WE ALL DO THAT.
  • 00:25:54.442 --> 00:25:57.779
  • WE ALL FALL SHORT.I'M NOT EXCUSING IT.
  • 00:25:57.879 --> 00:25:59.914
  • I'M JUST SAYINGIT HAPPENS.
  • 00:26:00.015 --> 00:26:01.783
  • BUT IF YOU OWN IT, SAY"I'M SORRY I DID THAT.

  • I'M SORRY I SAID THAT.
  • 00:26:04.319 --> 00:26:05.587
  • I'M SORRY I WASN'T THEBEST REPRESENTATIVE OF
  • 00:26:05.687 --> 00:26:08.490
  • JESUS." THAT DOESN'T MEANYOU'RE A HYPOCRITE, THAT
  • 00:26:08.590 --> 00:26:11.059
  • MEANS YOU'RE A HUMANAND YOU'RE OWNING YOUR
  • 00:26:11.159 --> 00:26:13.628
  • MISTAKES WHICH ISA GOOD THING TO DO.
  • 00:26:13.728 --> 00:26:16.231
  • A REAL HYPOCRITE IN THEBIBLICAL DEFINITION OF IT
  • 00:26:16.331 --> 00:26:19.934

  • DOESN'T EVEN BELIEVE THISAT ALL IN THEIR HEART.
  • 00:26:23.138 --> 00:26:26.341
  • SO YOU'RE SAYINGI'M NOT A CHRISTIAN

  • I'LL TELL YOU WHY.
  • 00:26:36.851 --> 00:26:38.319
  • BECAUSE GOD DID NOT SAY,"FOLLOW MY PEOPLE WHO ARE

  • ALL PERFECT." JESUS SAID,"FOLLOW ME." LOOK, TRUST
  • 00:26:41.589 --> 00:26:47.696
