  • - female announcer: Today
  • 00:00:06.190 --> 00:00:09.190
  • with Joseph Prince.
  • 00:00:09.190 --> 00:00:10.110
  • - Joseph Prince: The main
  • 00:00:10.110 --> 00:00:10.290
  • thrust of the church is to
  • 00:00:10.290 --> 00:00:12.010
  • proclaim and expound
  • 00:00:12.010 --> 00:00:14.000
  • Jesus Christ as the person
  • 00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:16.160
  • and then him crucified.
  • 00:00:16.160 --> 00:00:19.000
  • That's his work.
  • 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:20.280
  • Can I have a good "Amen"?
  • 00:00:20.280 --> 00:00:22.110
  • And all of a sudden you find
  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:23.020
  • that you are healed.
  • 00:00:23.020 --> 00:00:24.060
  • All of a sudden you find
  • 00:00:24.060 --> 00:00:24.260
  • that your perspective
  • 00:00:24.260 --> 00:00:25.200
  • changed.
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:26.140
  • All of a sudden you find
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.040
  • that, you know, not only
  • 00:00:27.040 --> 00:00:28.210
  • you--sometimes I tell you
  • 00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:29.290
  • this, you feel holy,
  • 00:00:29.290 --> 00:00:31.170
  • you know.
  • 00:00:31.170 --> 00:00:32.220
  • Holiness is a word
  • 00:00:32.220 --> 00:00:35.030
  • that's been so maligned
  • 00:00:35.030 --> 00:00:36.270
  • and misunderstood.
  • 00:00:36.270 --> 00:00:37.250
  • Holiness is from the root
  • 00:00:37.250 --> 00:00:39.030
  • word, English word
  • 00:00:39.030 --> 00:00:40.080
  • for whole.
  • 00:00:40.080 --> 00:00:41.170
  • And the word "holy"
  • 00:00:41.170 --> 00:00:42.220
  • means--the opposite of
  • 00:00:42.220 --> 00:00:43.220
  • holiness is commonness.
  • 00:00:43.220 --> 00:00:44.210
  • To be holy
  • 00:00:44.210 --> 00:00:45.220
  • is to be uncommon.
  • 00:00:45.220 --> 00:00:47.040
  • God wants you uncommon
  • 00:00:47.040 --> 00:00:49.030
  • in a world that is so common,
  • 00:00:49.030 --> 00:00:50.200
  • so common in their values,
  • 00:00:50.200 --> 00:00:52.040
  • in their morals,
  • 00:00:52.040 --> 00:00:53.060
  • in their practices.
  • 00:00:53.060 --> 00:00:53.290
  • They want everyone
  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:54.230
  • to be like them
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:55.200
  • or else they'll label you.
  • 00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:57.120
  • In a world where stats now,
  • 00:00:57.120 --> 00:00:59.010
  • even statistics among
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:00.030
  • Christians, they have
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:00.290
  • a higher rate of divorce,
  • 00:01:00.290 --> 00:01:01.250
  • you can be uncommon.

  • 00:01:08.140 --> 00:01:12.050
  • - Joseph Prince: Now,
  • 00:01:11.050 --> 00:01:14.050
  • once, I think it was
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:16.270
  • not too long ago, a minister
  • 00:01:16.270 --> 00:01:19.240
  • asked me this question.
  • 00:01:19.240 --> 00:01:21.090
  • You know, we all talk about
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:22.220
  • seeing Jesus, about seeing
  • 00:01:22.220 --> 00:01:24.080
  • Jesus, yeah, I know seeing
  • 00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:28.170
  • Jesus is important but
  • 00:01:28.170 --> 00:01:30.230
  • how do you see Jesus?
  • 00:01:30.230 --> 00:01:32.010
  • What, look at a portrait?
  • 00:01:32.010 --> 00:01:34.120
  • And also when you hear,
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:35.220
  • "seeing Jesus," some people,
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:36.250
  • they feel like it's
  • 00:01:36.250 --> 00:01:38.170
  • too simplistic an answer.
  • 00:01:38.170 --> 00:01:40.070
  • It is giving people
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:44.080
  • impractical advice but they
  • 00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:46.120
  • dare not say that because
  • 00:01:46.120 --> 00:01:47.110
  • it's seeing Jesus.
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:49.020
  • Yet, in the back of their
  • 00:01:49.020 --> 00:01:50.200
  • minds, it's as if the answer
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:52.210
  • whether you're a parenting
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:53.190
  • challenge, the answer
  • 00:01:53.190 --> 00:01:55.090
  • is to see Jesus.
  • 00:01:55.090 --> 00:01:57.020
  • And somehow, the
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:58.040
  • perspective, the wisdom,
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:02:00.060
  • comes in, the divine
  • 00:02:00.060 --> 00:02:01.210
  • impressions will lead you,
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:03.060
  • but it all comes from seeing
  • 00:02:03.060 --> 00:02:04.160
  • the Lord Jesus.
  • 00:02:04.160 --> 00:02:05.290
  • So how do we see Jesus?
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:07.160
  • If you have a monetary
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.000
  • challenge or you have
  • 00:02:10.000 --> 00:02:12.040
  • a habit you are struggling
  • 00:02:12.040 --> 00:02:14.010
  • with, see Jesus, amen?
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:17.120
  • Habit--remove the "H,"
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:19.060
  • you have the "a bit."
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:21.000
  • Remove the "A,"
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:21.210
  • you still have the "bit."
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:22.240
  • Remove the "B,"
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:24.040
  • you still have "it."
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:25.080
  • And the "I" can only be
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:27.010
  • removed by the cross, amen?
  • 00:02:27.010 --> 00:02:29.130
  • That's our challenge.
  • 00:02:29.130 --> 00:02:30.080
  • Our promise, always back to
  • 00:02:30.080 --> 00:02:31.070
  • the cross, Jesus Christ.
  • 00:02:31.070 --> 00:02:32.220
  • Can I have a good "Amen"?
  • 00:02:32.220 --> 00:02:34.200
  • Y'all don't know what
  • 00:02:34.200 --> 00:02:35.100
  • happened just now.
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:36.050
  • H-A-B-I-T.
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:37.150
  • Remove the "H," you have
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:38.210
  • "a bit."
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:39.090
  • You got it?
  • 00:02:39.090 --> 00:02:40.030
  • Slowly, slowly.
  • 00:02:40.030 --> 00:02:40.210
  • All right, siloh, siloh,
  • 00:02:40.210 --> 00:02:41.290
  • okay?
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:43.140
  • So when we look at Jesus,
  • 00:02:43.140 --> 00:02:45.060
  • whatever our challenges are,
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.270
  • whether we are struggling
  • 00:02:46.270 --> 00:02:48.010
  • with depression, we need to
  • 00:02:48.010 --> 00:02:49.250
  • go back, I need to see Jesus
  • 00:02:49.250 --> 00:02:51.050
  • in the Word.
  • 00:02:51.050 --> 00:02:52.000
  • I need to see Jesus, whether
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:53.120
  • it's in the sermon or in the
  • 00:02:53.120 --> 00:02:54.140
  • Word, these are the ways
  • 00:02:54.140 --> 00:02:55.270
  • that we see Jesus, our Lord,
  • 00:02:55.270 --> 00:02:58.000
  • amen.
  • 00:02:58.000 --> 00:02:58.190
  • Now, once a while
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:02:59.290
  • the Lord may give a vision
  • 00:02:59.290 --> 00:03:00.290
  • but don't look for that.
  • 00:03:00.290 --> 00:03:02.110
  • The demons can give
  • 00:03:02.110 --> 00:03:04.010
  • visions also.
  • 00:03:04.010 --> 00:03:05.080
  • Just be very careful.
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:06.080
  • The Word is how you see
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:07.100
  • Jesus because Jesus himself
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:09.030
  • taught us that.
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:10.140
  • When he rose from the dead,
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:11.260
  • the very same day that
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:13.020
  • he rose from the dead,
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:14.080
  • you would have thought there
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:15.030
  • are more important things
  • 00:03:15.030 --> 00:03:16.070
  • to do after you rise
  • 00:03:16.070 --> 00:03:17.240
  • from the dead.
  • 00:03:17.240 --> 00:03:19.020
  • Well, the first thing he did
  • 00:03:19.020 --> 00:03:20.190
  • was to dry a woman's tears.
  • 00:03:23.030 --> 00:03:26.030
  • The second thing he did,
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:27.050
  • we see, is that on the same
  • 00:03:27.050 --> 00:03:29.050
  • day, he approached
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:30.220
  • two disciples of his
  • 00:03:30.220 --> 00:03:32.090
  • and the Bible says
  • 00:03:32.090 --> 00:03:34.120
  • their eyes were restrained.
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:36.250
  • Not on their part.
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:38.050
  • It was restrained,
  • 00:03:38.050 --> 00:03:39.040
  • means what?
  • 00:03:39.040 --> 00:03:39.240
  • It's a passive term.
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:40.100
  • It means the Lord restrained
  • 00:03:40.100 --> 00:03:41.260
  • their eyes from seeing him
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:43.190
  • in person.
  • 00:03:43.190 --> 00:03:44.290
  • And then they were
  • 00:03:44.290 --> 00:03:46.040
  • depressed.
  • 00:03:46.040 --> 00:03:46.220
  • They were walking on their
  • 00:03:46.220 --> 00:03:47.200
  • way back to their town
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:49.180
  • called Emmaus from Jerusalem
  • 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:52.240
  • and the Lord intervened and
  • 00:03:52.240 --> 00:03:53.230
  • the Lord talked to them,
  • 00:03:53.230 --> 00:03:54.220
  • "Why are you talking to one
  • 00:03:54.220 --> 00:03:55.160
  • another and you are sad?"
  • 00:03:55.160 --> 00:03:56.180
  • Listen carefully.
  • 00:03:56.180 --> 00:03:57.140
  • This is a secret to your
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:03:58.100
  • deliverance from depression
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:03:59.210
  • and disappointment.
  • 00:03:59.210 --> 00:04:01.060
  • They were disappointed, they
  • 00:04:01.060 --> 00:04:02.200
  • were depressed, and they
  • 00:04:02.200 --> 00:04:03.260
  • said, "Are you a stranger?
  • 00:04:03.260 --> 00:04:05.010
  • You have not heard what
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:05.280
  • happened recently?
  • 00:04:05.280 --> 00:04:07.070
  • You know, this Jesus of
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:08.050
  • Nazareth, he did great signs
  • 00:04:08.050 --> 00:04:09.100
  • and wonders and we thought
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:10.210
  • he was the one.
  • 00:04:10.210 --> 00:04:11.190
  • We thought it was he who
  • 00:04:11.190 --> 00:04:13.140
  • should redeem Israel,"
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:14.200
  • so he is a means to--their
  • 00:04:14.200 --> 00:04:16.180
  • main interest is Israel.
  • 00:04:16.180 --> 00:04:19.100
  • "We thought it was he who
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:20.280
  • would minister and bring
  • 00:04:20.280 --> 00:04:23.130
  • redemption to Israel," and
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:25.100
  • their focus is on Israel
  • 00:04:25.100 --> 00:04:26.240
  • as a central object
  • 00:04:26.240 --> 00:04:28.270
  • of their affections.
  • 00:04:28.270 --> 00:04:30.190
  • And Jesus is just a means
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:32.040
  • to an end.
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:33.070
  • The Lord is about to change
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:33.280
  • that.
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:35.000
  • That's why we are depressed.
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:36.060
  • We have something good
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:38.070
  • in place of the best.
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:39.270
  • We have something like in
  • 00:04:39.270 --> 00:04:42.090
  • the center--we use Jesus to
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:43.270
  • obtain what we think is best
  • 00:04:43.270 --> 00:04:46.190
  • for us, when actually
  • 00:04:46.190 --> 00:04:47.190
  • whatever else,
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:48.270
  • the Lord's--the purpose of
  • 00:04:48.270 --> 00:04:49.270
  • the Holy Spirit is to bring
  • 00:04:49.270 --> 00:04:50.220
  • to this place everything else,
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:52.070
  • like the book of Hebrews in
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:52.290
  • the 1st chapter, they
  • 00:04:52.290 --> 00:04:54.060
  • replaced--he replaced all
  • 00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:55.190
  • the angels and put Jesus in
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:56.260
  • the midst.
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:58.040
  • He's better than the angels.
  • 00:04:58.040 --> 00:04:59.150
  • Another chapter, he
  • 00:04:59.150 --> 00:05:00.190
  • displaced even Moses who
  • 00:05:00.190 --> 00:05:02.170
  • was a servant compared to
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:04.000
  • the son of the house.
  • 00:05:04.000 --> 00:05:06.020
  • And then, next chapter,
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:07.060
  • he removed the Levitical
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:09.040
  • priesthood and talked about
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:10.010
  • a greater and eternal
  • 00:05:10.010 --> 00:05:11.090
  • priesthood, Melchizedek.
  • 00:05:11.090 --> 00:05:13.120
  • So it's always "Jesus is
  • 00:05:13.120 --> 00:05:15.110
  • better than" in the book of
  • 00:05:15.110 --> 00:05:16.270
  • Hebrews, and
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:17.270
  • the Holy Spirit's jealousy
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:19.020
  • to make sure to God
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:20.070
  • the glory of Jesus so that
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:21.230
  • we all can see him.
  • 00:05:21.230 --> 00:05:22.250
  • And finally, compared to
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:24.010
  • all the heroes of faith
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:25.190
  • in Hebrews 11, it says:
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:27.050
  • "Looking unto Jesus,"
  • 00:05:27.050 --> 00:05:28.110
  • at the end.
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:29.060
  • And the word "looking"
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:29.250
  • in the Greek is literally
  • 00:05:29.250 --> 00:05:32.100
  • the word to look away from
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:34.190
  • everything that would
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:35.200
  • distract, even all these
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:36.200
  • great heroes of faith
  • 00:05:36.200 --> 00:05:37.210
  • in Hebrews 11.
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:38.250
  • They are not our examples.
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:40.150
  • Look away from them,
  • 00:05:40.150 --> 00:05:43.030
  • all this great cloud of
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:44.060
  • witnesses, unto Jesus,
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:46.150
  • the author and finisher
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:47.190
  • of faith.
  • 00:05:47.190 --> 00:05:48.270
  • Can I have a good "Amen"?
  • 00:05:48.270 --> 00:05:50.060
  • So how do we look at Jesus?
  • 00:05:50.060 --> 00:05:51.270
  • The road to Emmaus,
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:53.080
  • they were disappointed.
  • 00:05:53.080 --> 00:05:54.160
  • And the way to cure that,
  • 00:05:54.160 --> 00:05:55.290
  • the Lord began to expound
  • 00:05:55.290 --> 00:05:58.000
  • things concerning himself
  • 00:05:58.000 --> 00:06:00.030
  • in the Scriptures.
  • 00:06:00.030 --> 00:06:02.000
  • No wonder later on they
  • 00:06:02.000 --> 00:06:03.090
  • said, "Weren't our hearts
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:04.260
  • warmed when he opened up
  • 00:06:04.260 --> 00:06:06.110
  • the Scriptures to us?"
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:07.220
  • They didn't know this
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:08.190
  • divine stranger.
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:09.160
  • Their eyes were restrained
  • 00:06:09.160 --> 00:06:10.130
  • from seeing him.
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:11.070
  • Years ago, I asked the Lord
  • 00:06:11.070 --> 00:06:12.150
  • one time, I asked a question
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:13.240
  • that no one has preached on.
  • 00:06:13.240 --> 00:06:15.050
  • In fact, a lot of people say
  • 00:06:15.050 --> 00:06:16.020
  • that they didn't recognize
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.200
  • Jesus because, you know,
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:19.240
  • probably they were very sad
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:20.290
  • or because
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.090
  • in his Resurrection form
  • 00:06:22.090 --> 00:06:23.210
  • he looked different.
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:24.170
  • But the Bible doesn't say
  • 00:06:24.170 --> 00:06:25.120
  • that.
  • 00:06:25.120 --> 00:06:25.290
  • The Bible says: "Their eyes
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:26.250
  • were restrained."
  • 00:06:26.250 --> 00:06:27.280
  • In other words, he
  • 00:06:27.280 --> 00:06:28.170
  • restrained their eyes
  • 00:06:28.170 --> 00:06:29.100
  • from seeing him in person,
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:31.000
  • from recognizing him.
  • 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:32.260
  • And then these people
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.020
  • will also say that they
  • 00:06:34.020 --> 00:06:34.270
  • recognized because when he
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:36.050
  • broke the bread, then they
  • 00:06:36.050 --> 00:06:37.010
  • recognized him later on,
  • 00:06:37.010 --> 00:06:38.150
  • when he broke the bread.
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:39.130
  • Probably they saw the nail
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:41.030
  • prints in his hands.
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:42.140
  • Now, that's not true also
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:43.080
  • because that's not
  • 00:06:43.080 --> 00:06:44.110
  • in the Bible.
  • 00:06:44.110 --> 00:06:45.290
  • They did recognize him
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:46.270
  • in the breaking of bread
  • 00:06:46.270 --> 00:06:47.270
  • because he allowed them
  • 00:06:47.270 --> 00:06:48.250
  • to recognize him then.
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:50.100
  • But why was it he restrained
  • 00:06:50.100 --> 00:06:51.280
  • their eyes?
  • 00:06:51.280 --> 00:06:53.200
  • I asked the Lord many years
  • 00:06:53.200 --> 00:06:54.150
  • ago and the Lord said this
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:55.210
  • to me: "It was more
  • 00:06:55.210 --> 00:06:57.190
  • important for them to see me
  • 00:06:57.190 --> 00:06:59.140
  • in the Word than to see me
  • 00:06:59.140 --> 00:07:02.040
  • in person."
  • 00:07:02.040 --> 00:07:03.240
  • And that gives equal
  • 00:07:03.240 --> 00:07:05.130
  • opportunity for all of us
  • 00:07:05.130 --> 00:07:08.030
  • today, or else you would say
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:09.150
  • they had the privilege of
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:10.240
  • seeing Jesus in person,
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:12.250
  • no wonder they had faith.
  • 00:07:12.250 --> 00:07:14.020
  • No, no, all of us have
  • 00:07:14.020 --> 00:07:17.010
  • the same privilege
  • 00:07:17.010 --> 00:07:18.020
  • like the two disciples.
  • 00:07:18.020 --> 00:07:19.120
  • To see Jesus in the Word is
  • 00:07:19.120 --> 00:07:21.110
  • more important than to see
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:22.250
  • him in person.
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:25.050
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:27.020
  • And that's what delivered
  • 00:07:27.020 --> 00:07:28.150
  • them from their depression,
  • 00:07:28.150 --> 00:07:30.030
  • amen?
  • 00:07:30.030 --> 00:07:31.100
  • Not only that, their feet
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:34.290
  • were set back into its
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:37.010
  • right track.
  • 00:07:37.010 --> 00:07:38.020
  • They were going away from
  • 00:07:38.020 --> 00:07:39.030
  • Jerusalem, now they walked
  • 00:07:39.030 --> 00:07:39.290
  • back to Jerusalem, amen.
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:42.010
  • So I wanna tell you
  • 00:07:42.010 --> 00:07:42.210
  • something, all right?
  • 00:07:42.210 --> 00:07:43.200
  • The--blessed is the--are
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:45.290
  • the preachers
  • 00:07:45.290 --> 00:07:47.100
  • that unveil Christ to you.
  • 00:07:47.100 --> 00:07:50.000
  • They are doing
  • 00:07:50.000 --> 00:07:50.250
  • the greatest favor.
  • 00:07:50.250 --> 00:07:52.080
  • Instead of saying, "Okay,
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:53.030
  • you got a parenting problem,
  • 00:07:53.030 --> 00:07:54.030
  • we'll teach on parenting."
  • 00:07:54.030 --> 00:07:55.060
  • Nothing wrong with that,
  • 00:07:55.060 --> 00:07:56.060
  • okay?
  • 00:07:56.060 --> 00:07:56.250
  • Or "You got financial
  • 00:07:56.250 --> 00:07:57.120
  • problem, we'll teach you on
  • 00:07:57.120 --> 00:07:58.050
  • financial, stewardship,
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:07:58.260
  • the next few weeks."
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:07:59.150
  • You know, nothing wrong with
  • 00:07:59.150 --> 00:08:00.120
  • that, or you say that "okay,
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:01.180
  • you've got a problem
  • 00:08:01.180 --> 00:08:02.160
  • with depression.
  • 00:08:02.160 --> 00:08:03.240
  • We're gonna teach on--be
  • 00:08:03.240 --> 00:08:04.210
  • psychological principles,
  • 00:08:04.210 --> 00:08:05.230
  • on how to handle this, then
  • 00:08:05.230 --> 00:08:07.060
  • human relationships and all
  • 00:08:07.060 --> 00:08:09.080
  • that, type A, type B, type A
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:11.240
  • and male temperament,
  • 00:08:11.240 --> 00:08:13.070
  • how to handle this and that."
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:14.130
  • I mean, all that is fine.
  • 00:08:14.130 --> 00:08:15.220
  • I'm not against that,
  • 00:08:15.220 --> 00:08:17.010
  • but the church is not
  • 00:08:17.010 --> 00:08:18.220
  • exactly the place for
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:20.050
  • this kind of thing.
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:20.270
  • These are more like
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:21.150
  • supplements.
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:22.280
  • The main thrust of
  • 00:08:22.280 --> 00:08:24.020
  • the church is to proclaim
  • 00:08:24.020 --> 00:08:25.200
  • and expound Jesus Christ
  • 00:08:25.200 --> 00:08:27.180
  • as the person
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:29.170
  • and then him crucified.
  • 00:08:29.170 --> 00:08:31.280
  • That's his work.
  • 00:08:31.280 --> 00:08:33.190
  • Can I have a good "Amen"?
  • 00:08:33.190 --> 00:08:34.290
  • And all of a sudden you find
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:35.200
  • that you are healed.
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:36.260
  • All of a sudden you find
  • 00:08:36.260 --> 00:08:37.220
  • that your perspective
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:38.130
  • changed.
  • 00:08:38.130 --> 00:08:39.030
  • All of a sudden you find
  • 00:08:39.030 --> 00:08:39.240
  • that, you know, not only
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:41.110
  • you--sometimes I tell
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:42.200
  • you this, you feel holy,
  • 00:08:42.200 --> 00:08:44.080
  • you know.
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:45.110
  • Holiness is a word
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:47.270
  • that's been so maligned
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.060
  • and misunderstood.
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:50.120
  • Holiness is from
  • 00:08:50.120 --> 00:08:51.040
  • the root word,
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:52.000
  • English word for whole.
  • 00:08:52.000 --> 00:08:54.050
  • Holy is whole.
  • 00:08:54.050 --> 00:08:55.190
  • How many want to be whole?
  • 00:08:55.190 --> 00:08:57.060
  • You wanna be holy.
  • 00:08:57.060 --> 00:08:58.170
  • And the word "holy"
  • 00:08:58.170 --> 00:09:00.030
  • means--the opposite of
  • 00:09:00.030 --> 00:09:01.010
  • holiness is commonness.
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:02.180
  • To be holy is to be
  • 00:09:02.180 --> 00:09:03.130
  • uncommon.
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:04.140
  • God wants you uncommon in
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:06.190
  • a world that is so common,
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:08.110
  • so common in their values,
  • 00:09:08.110 --> 00:09:09.250
  • in their morals,
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:10.250
  • in their practices.
  • 00:09:10.250 --> 00:09:11.230
  • They want everyone
  • 00:09:11.230 --> 00:09:12.130
  • to be like them
  • 00:09:12.130 --> 00:09:13.100
  • or else they'll label you.
  • 00:09:13.100 --> 00:09:15.200
  • In a world that pretends
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:16.200
  • on--pretends to be
  • 00:09:16.200 --> 00:09:17.280
  • compassionate, actually it's
  • 00:09:17.280 --> 00:09:19.190
  • becoming a very cruel world.
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:22.170
  • But you are uncommon.
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:25.040
  • You stand out.
  • 00:09:25.040 --> 00:09:26.090
  • In a world where stats now,
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:28.070
  • even statistics among
  • 00:09:28.070 --> 00:09:29.010
  • Christians, they have
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:29.260
  • a higher rate of divorce,
  • 00:09:29.260 --> 00:09:31.000
  • you can be uncommon.
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:32.200
  • That's holiness, my friend.
  • 00:09:32.200 --> 00:09:34.070
  • Can I have a good "Amen"?
  • 00:09:34.070 --> 00:09:35.020
  • Yes, seeing Jesus will also
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:37.050
  • answer to your marital
  • 00:09:38.090 --> 00:09:41.090
  • problems or to whatever
  • 00:09:41.090 --> 00:09:43.030
  • difficulty you may have in
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:44.140
  • your marriage right now.
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:45.270
  • You may not want even
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:46.200
  • to look at one another but
  • 00:09:46.200 --> 00:09:48.020
  • you can look at Jesus, right?
  • 00:09:48.020 --> 00:09:50.270
  • Can you look Jesus?
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:52.230
  • Anyway, every marriage
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:54.090
  • must have a third party:
  • 00:09:54.090 --> 00:09:55.280
  • our Lord Jesus.
  • 00:09:55.280 --> 00:09:58.010
  • A problem happens when you
  • 00:09:58.010 --> 00:09:59.040
  • start looking at one another
  • 00:09:59.040 --> 00:10:00.210
  • and trying to put each other
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:01.260
  • unconsciously in the place
  • 00:10:01.260 --> 00:10:03.030
  • of Jesus, demanding
  • 00:10:03.030 --> 00:10:04.120
  • from one another what only
  • 00:10:04.120 --> 00:10:06.050
  • the Lord can do and give.
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:07.260
  • Marriage is made up of
  • 00:10:07.260 --> 00:10:09.100
  • two broken people
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:10.080
  • coming together, okay?
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:11.180
  • And by the way, all this is
  • 00:10:11.180 --> 00:10:12.140
  • not my sermon yet; just to
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:13.100
  • tell you why we see Jesus,
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:14.220
  • amen?
  • 00:10:14.220 --> 00:10:15.160
  • Praise the Lord, amen?
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:17.020
  • C'mon, give Jesus
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:17.280
  • the praise, hallelujah.
  • 00:10:17.280 --> 00:10:19.190
  • Aren't you glad--aren't you
  • 00:10:19.190 --> 00:10:21.150
  • glad you are in this church?
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:23.090
  • Is it okay for me to
  • 00:10:23.090 --> 00:10:24.110
  • say that?
  • 00:10:24.110 --> 00:10:25.080
  • I hear pastors talking about
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:26.150
  • their own church mission,
  • 00:10:26.150 --> 00:10:27.200
  • their own church name
  • 00:10:27.200 --> 00:10:28.150
  • and all that, very proud of
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:29.060
  • their own church.
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:29.260
  • I am proud of you--of
  • 00:10:29.260 --> 00:10:30.270
  • all of you.
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:31.180
  • I tell you this, I really
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:32.160
  • missed you all when I was
  • 00:10:32.160 --> 00:10:33.210
  • in Israel.
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:34.230
  • Really missed you all, amen?
  • 00:10:34.280 --> 00:10:37.280
  • All right, now, today
  • 00:10:37.280 --> 00:10:39.190
  • I'm gonna share with you
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:40.080
  • some things like I said,
  • 00:10:40.080 --> 00:10:41.050
  • I'm gonna share with you some
  • 00:10:41.050 --> 00:10:41.270
  • things that I asked the Lord
  • 00:10:41.270 --> 00:10:42.270
  • when I go to Israel, some
  • 00:10:42.270 --> 00:10:44.080
  • places I wanna go and,
  • 00:10:44.080 --> 00:10:45.120
  • surely, the Lord puts in
  • 00:10:45.120 --> 00:10:46.100
  • my heart some places
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:47.110
  • that I wanna go to.
  • 00:10:47.110 --> 00:10:48.240
  • You be blessed because some
  • 00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:50.140
  • of these places are places
  • 00:10:50.140 --> 00:10:52.010
  • where, when I go there for
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:53.260
  • the first time, and there
  • 00:10:53.260 --> 00:10:55.020
  • are a few places I went to
  • 00:10:55.020 --> 00:10:55.240
  • for the first time, the Lord
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:57.080
  • began to show--it's like
  • 00:10:57.080 --> 00:10:58.100
  • pouring into me revelation,
  • 00:10:58.100 --> 00:11:00.230
  • like a stream of revelation,
  • 00:11:00.230 --> 00:11:02.210
  • just like--not a stream.
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:04.210
  • Torrential latter rain.
  • 00:11:04.240 --> 00:11:07.240
  • You all saw the tsunami
  • 00:11:07.240 --> 00:11:08.160
  • pictures that
  • 00:11:08.160 --> 00:11:10.110
  • Pastor Lawrence showed you
  • 00:11:10.110 --> 00:11:11.180
  • last week?
  • 00:11:11.180 --> 00:11:12.230
  • It's almost like that.
  • 00:11:12.230 --> 00:11:14.220
  • Like drinking from
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:16.270
  • a fire hydrant, you know?
  • 00:11:16.270 --> 00:11:19.270
  • You wish you can take
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:21.110
  • everything, you know?
  • 00:11:21.110 --> 00:11:22.100
  • But that's what happens
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:23.070
  • to your pastor.
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:24.030
  • So always remember
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:24.270
  • when they're in Israel,
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:25.270
  • you stand to benefit.
  • 00:11:25.270 --> 00:11:27.220
  • You will want them to go
  • 00:11:27.220 --> 00:11:29.040
  • more often.
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:30.050
  • Can I have a good "Amen"?
  • 00:11:30.050 --> 00:11:31.170
  • Now, let's go right now
  • 00:11:31.170 --> 00:11:32.180
  • to the Word and you'll see
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:34.060
  • what God has for us.
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:35.010
  • We go to Genesis 49 and
  • 00:11:35.010 --> 00:11:37.200
  • Jacob has come to a place
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:39.230
  • where he's about to depart
  • 00:11:39.230 --> 00:11:41.050
  • and be with the Lord.
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:42.210
  • He knew his time has come
  • 00:11:42.210 --> 00:11:43.280
  • so he gathered all his family.
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:45.240
  • He has met Joseph, his son,
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:47.090
  • amen, the viceroy of Egypt,
  • 00:11:47.090 --> 00:11:49.160
  • the president of Egypt, and
  • 00:11:49.160 --> 00:11:52.010
  • he has met all his grandsons
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:54.180
  • now and Joseph's two sons,
  • 00:11:54.180 --> 00:11:57.110
  • Ephraim and Manasseh,
  • 00:11:57.110 --> 00:11:58.140
  • and finally he calls them
  • 00:11:58.140 --> 00:11:59.190
  • all because he knows
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:00.170
  • his time has come.
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:01.170
  • He wants to bless them
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:02.130
  • before he goes.
  • 00:12:02.130 --> 00:12:03.100
  • So let's look at the very
  • 00:12:03.100 --> 00:12:04.060
  • first verse.
  • 00:12:04.060 --> 00:12:05.200
  • It says: "Jacob called his
  • 00:12:05.200 --> 00:12:06.170
  • sons and said, 'Gather
  • 00:12:06.170 --> 00:12:07.190
  • together, that I may tell
  • 00:12:07.190 --> 00:12:08.170
  • you what shall befall you
  • 00:12:08.170 --> 00:12:09.220
  • in the last days.'"
  • 00:12:09.220 --> 00:12:10.280
  • So this blessing of his
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:12.160
  • 12 sons are not just blessings.
  • 00:12:12.160 --> 00:12:14.040
  • They are blessings.
  • 00:12:14.040 --> 00:12:15.100
  • In fact, you look down at
  • 00:12:15.100 --> 00:12:16.180
  • the end of all the blessings
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:18.000
  • of his 12 sons.
  • 00:12:18.000 --> 00:12:19.020
  • He says this: "All these are
  • 00:12:19.020 --> 00:12:20.100
  • the 12 tribes of Israel, and
  • 00:12:20.100 --> 00:12:21.180
  • this is what their father,"
  • 00:12:21.180 --> 00:12:23.140
  • Jacob, "spoke to them.
  • 00:12:23.140 --> 00:12:24.170
  • And he blessed them;
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:25.170
  • he blessed each one
  • 00:12:25.170 --> 00:12:27.090
  • according to his blessing."
  • 00:12:27.090 --> 00:12:28.270
  • So it is blessing
  • 00:12:28.270 --> 00:12:29.200
  • his 12 sons.
  • 00:12:29.200 --> 00:12:31.080
  • But some of them when
  • 00:12:31.080 --> 00:12:32.280
  • you read, you are thinking,
  • 00:12:32.280 --> 00:12:34.240
  • "Issachar is a donkey,
  • 00:12:34.240 --> 00:12:37.010
  • a strong donkey."
  • 00:12:37.010 --> 00:12:38.220
  • You are wondering, I wonder
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:40.290
  • sometimes can I bless
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:42.030
  • my pastors with
  • 00:12:42.030 --> 00:12:44.120
  • this kind of blessing or not?
  • 00:12:44.120 --> 00:12:46.020
  • Have you ever wondered that?
  • 00:12:46.020 --> 00:12:47.280
  • Or "Can I bless my husband,
  • 00:12:47.280 --> 00:12:49.180
  • Pastor Prince, with
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:50.230
  • this kind of blessing?"
  • 00:12:50.230 --> 00:12:51.230
  • You'll find it's a blessing,
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:53.090
  • trust me, okay?
  • 00:12:53.090 --> 00:12:55.070
  • It's--this entire thing
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:56.100
  • is a blessing.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:57.040
  • "And he blessed each one
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:58.100
  • according," it means
  • 00:12:58.100 --> 00:12:59.170
  • all 12 sons, "according to
  • 00:12:59.170 --> 00:13:00.150
  • his own blessing," okay?
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:02.120
  • And yet, at the same time,
  • 00:13:02.120 --> 00:13:03.110
  • verse 1 says what?
  • 00:13:03.110 --> 00:13:05.100
  • "Come, I'm gonna tell you
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:06.160
  • what's gonna happen to all
  • 00:13:06.160 --> 00:13:07.130
  • of you," not them in person,
  • 00:13:07.130 --> 00:13:10.110
  • but in their tribes,
  • 00:13:10.110 --> 00:13:12.200
  • "in the last days," okay?
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:17.010
  • So we look--we cannot
  • 00:13:17.010 --> 00:13:18.140
  • look possibly at all the 12,
  • 00:13:18.140 --> 00:13:20.100
  • all right?
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:20.290
  • There's no way I can keep
  • 00:13:20.290 --> 00:13:21.220
  • you here within the time
  • 00:13:21.220 --> 00:13:23.000
  • scope that I have.
  • 00:13:23.000 --> 00:13:24.030
  • But I'm gonna show you a few
  • 00:13:24.030 --> 00:13:24.260
  • things and then show you
  • 00:13:24.260 --> 00:13:25.230
  • what God showed me, okay,
  • 00:13:25.230 --> 00:13:27.060
  • amen?
  • 00:13:27.060 --> 00:13:28.020
  • Now, the rest of you,
  • 00:13:28.020 --> 00:13:29.140
  • you're not interested,
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:30.030
  • just switch off.
  • 00:13:30.030 --> 00:13:30.250
  • Don't worry about it, amen?
  • 00:13:30.250 --> 00:13:32.050
  • We'll come back and
  • 00:13:32.050 --> 00:13:32.240
  • fetch you later, all right?
  • 00:13:32.240 --> 00:13:34.020
  • This is a journey,
  • 00:13:34.020 --> 00:13:35.010
  • all right, into outer space.
  • 00:13:35.010 --> 00:13:36.150
  • I told you to bring
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:37.090
  • tight-fitting socks
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:38.010
  • and all that.
  • 00:13:38.010 --> 00:13:38.210
  • You're in for a journey
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:39.180
  • and it's gonna bless you.
  • 00:13:39.180 --> 00:13:40.250
  • You're gonna see Jesus,
  • 00:13:40.250 --> 00:13:41.270
  • amen?
  • 00:13:41.270 --> 00:13:42.230
  • Praise the Lord.
  • 00:13:42.230 --> 00:13:43.240
  • So obviously, when Jesus
  • 00:13:43.240 --> 00:13:44.240
  • expounded things concerning
  • 00:13:44.240 --> 00:13:45.290
  • himself to the two,
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:49.140
  • the Bible says: "Beginning
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:51.070
  • at Moses," those are the first
  • 00:13:51.070 --> 00:13:52.060
  • five books of Moses at
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:54.160
  • Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus,
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:56.250
  • Numbers, Deuteronomy, and
  • 00:13:56.250 --> 00:13:58.090
  • then also in the Prophets,
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:14:00.090
  • things concerning himself.
  • 00:14:00.090 --> 00:14:01.230
  • The prophets are all that
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:02.240
  • you read in the center part
  • 00:14:02.240 --> 00:14:03.270
  • of your Bible, amen, and
  • 00:14:03.270 --> 00:14:05.120
  • then you come to the Psalms.
  • 00:14:05.120 --> 00:14:07.160
  • Psalms are central part,
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:09.000
  • or nearly central part of
  • 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:09.190
  • the Bible.
  • 00:14:09.190 --> 00:14:10.190
  • So Jesus didn't come
  • 00:14:10.190 --> 00:14:11.190
  • 'til the Psalms.
  • 00:14:11.190 --> 00:14:12.080
  • In fact, later on in
  • 00:14:12.080 --> 00:14:12.250
  • the day, in the Upper Room,
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:14.190
  • he expounded on the Psalms.
  • 00:14:14.190 --> 00:14:15.290
  • So things concerning
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:16.210
  • himself.
  • 00:14:16.210 --> 00:14:17.200
  • It's all about him.
  • 00:14:17.200 --> 00:14:18.280
  • The way he taught us
  • 00:14:18.280 --> 00:14:19.260
  • to teach the Bible, on his
  • 00:14:19.260 --> 00:14:20.280
  • Resurrection day, obviously
  • 00:14:20.280 --> 00:14:22.180
  • he thought it was very
  • 00:14:22.180 --> 00:14:23.090
  • important for us to know it,
  • 00:14:23.090 --> 00:14:25.090
  • is that he taught us to see
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:27.060
  • things concerning himself
  • 00:14:27.060 --> 00:14:28.270
  • in the Scriptures,
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:30.010
  • even in the Old Testament.
  • 00:14:30.010 --> 00:14:31.210
  • One thing that people
  • 00:14:31.210 --> 00:14:33.140
  • like to say about us is that,
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:34.250
  • "Oh, you all teach grace
  • 00:14:34.250 --> 00:14:35.230
  • and all that, you all teach
  • 00:14:35.230 --> 00:14:36.170
  • from Paul's letters,
  • 00:14:36.170 --> 00:14:37.170
  • you all teach from
  • 00:14:37.170 --> 00:14:38.060
  • the New Testament," but
  • 00:14:38.060 --> 00:14:39.040
  • here's one pastor who preach
  • 00:14:39.040 --> 00:14:40.060
  • a lot from the Old Testament.
  • 00:14:40.060 --> 00:14:42.030
  • Am I right?
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:43.090
  • Even though I'm not old.
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:45.260
  • So let's start.
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:46.250
  • We have a few of them,
  • 00:14:46.250 --> 00:14:47.200
  • to see--and see whether
  • 00:14:47.200 --> 00:14:49.020
  • it resonates with your spirit,
  • 00:14:49.020 --> 00:14:50.140
  • okay?
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:51.090
  • You join me in this.
  • 00:14:51.090 --> 00:14:52.070
  • Okay, praise the Lord.
  • 00:14:52.070 --> 00:14:53.030
  • Let's look at the first one,
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:54.170
  • at Gad.
  • 00:14:54.170 --> 00:14:56.190
  • Is it Gad?
  • 00:14:56.190 --> 00:14:57.190
  • Yes, we have Gad.
  • 00:14:57.190 --> 00:14:58.230
  • Let's--Gad is one of the 12
  • 00:14:58.230 --> 00:15:00.160
  • sons so this--all the names
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:02.130
  • of the son, we have Gad,
  • 00:15:02.130 --> 00:15:03.210
  • we have Asher later on, we have
  • 00:15:03.210 --> 00:15:05.060
  • Naphtali, we have Joseph.
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:06.230
  • "Gad, a troop shall tramp
  • 00:15:06.230 --> 00:15:08.160
  • upon him, but he shall
  • 00:15:08.160 --> 00:15:10.040
  • triumph at last."
  • 00:15:10.040 --> 00:15:11.090
  • So I'm thinking to myself,
  • 00:15:11.090 --> 00:15:12.130
  • years ago, what is this?
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:13.280
  • "Gad."
  • 00:15:13.280 --> 00:15:14.200
  • I got it from some time
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:15.120
  • back.
  • 00:15:15.120 --> 00:15:16.130
  • "Gad, a troop
  • 00:15:16.130 --> 00:15:18.070
  • shall tramp him."
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:19.260
  • Later on,
  • 00:15:19.260 --> 00:15:21.150
  • "he shall triumph at last."
  • 00:15:21.150 --> 00:15:23.200
  • You're wondering,
  • 00:15:23.200 --> 00:15:24.160
  • "What is this?
  • 00:15:24.160 --> 00:15:26.030
  • What is this?
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:27.060
  • And how is this a blessing?"
  • 00:15:27.060 --> 00:15:28.110
  • Then when you put Jesus
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:29.180
  • in it, you realize that
  • 00:15:29.180 --> 00:15:31.100
  • it's the story of Jesus
  • 00:15:31.100 --> 00:15:32.170
  • in the Gospels.
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:33.280
  • Prophesy 1.600 over years
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:38.030
  • before Jesus came
  • 00:15:38.220 --> 00:15:41.220
  • as a baby in Bethlehem,
  • 00:15:41.220 --> 00:15:44.100
  • this is prophesied already,
  • 00:15:44.100 --> 00:15:46.180
  • that there'll be a Gad, "a troop
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:48.160
  • shall tramp upon him,
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:49.190
  • but he shall triumph at last."
  • 00:15:49.190 --> 00:15:50.210
  • Do you remember the story
  • 00:15:50.210 --> 00:15:52.110
  • of the Gadarene demoniac?
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:54.240
  • The Bible tells us when
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:56.150
  • Jesus asked the demon,
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:57.190
  • by the way, you know,
  • 00:15:57.190 --> 00:15:58.260
  • the Bible tells us that Jesus
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:16:00.040
  • was in the boat asleep, going
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:02.050
  • to the other side of Gadara
  • 00:16:02.050 --> 00:16:03.280
  • because when someone screams
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.050
  • from that side, across
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:06.180
  • the lake, here in Capernaum
  • 00:16:06.180 --> 00:16:08.080
  • you can hear it.
  • 00:16:08.080 --> 00:16:09.200
  • So Jesus heard and
  • 00:16:09.200 --> 00:16:11.070
  • every time, you know,
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:12.060
  • I can just--if this is a movie,
  • 00:16:12.060 --> 00:16:13.150
  • right, it's almost like
  • 00:16:13.150 --> 00:16:14.100
  • people are eating and all
  • 00:16:14.100 --> 00:16:15.070
  • that, then you can hear
  • 00:16:15.070 --> 00:16:15.280
  • a cry: "Rahhh."
  • 00:16:15.280 --> 00:16:17.130
  • You know, the guy with
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:18.050
  • the chains and no one can
  • 00:16:18.050 --> 00:16:18.270
  • tame him.
  • 00:16:18.270 --> 00:16:19.200
  • He will break the chains.
  • 00:16:19.200 --> 00:16:20.090
  • He's a violent guy.
  • 00:16:20.090 --> 00:16:21.120
  • I mean, he has supernatural
  • 00:16:21.120 --> 00:16:22.110
  • power.
  • 00:16:22.110 --> 00:16:23.050
  • Chains, he can break
  • 00:16:23.050 --> 00:16:24.090
  • the chains, and no one dare
  • 00:16:24.090 --> 00:16:25.160
  • pass by that area.
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:26.150
  • But he will scream.
  • 00:16:26.150 --> 00:16:27.110
  • He'll cut himself
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:28.050
  • day and night.
  • 00:16:28.050 --> 00:16:28.280
  • He's cutting himself and
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:29.220
  • people are doing that today
  • 00:16:29.220 --> 00:16:31.010
  • in different forms.
  • 00:16:31.010 --> 00:16:32.020
  • Some literally and some
  • 00:16:32.020 --> 00:16:33.010
  • in different forms.
  • 00:16:33.010 --> 00:16:33.250
  • They are punishing themself.
  • 00:16:33.250 --> 00:16:35.010
  • He's cutting himself,
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:35.270
  • bleeding, crying.
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:37.010
  • The Bible says: "Crying
  • 00:16:37.010 --> 00:16:38.010
  • and crying and crying."
  • 00:16:38.010 --> 00:16:39.210
  • And they will hear and
  • 00:16:39.210 --> 00:16:40.170
  • a lot of people shake their
  • 00:16:40.170 --> 00:16:41.140
  • heads and just go on their
  • 00:16:41.140 --> 00:16:42.270
  • merry--they have learned
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:44.040
  • to accept it.
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:45.000
  • But Jesus would look yonder
  • 00:16:45.000 --> 00:16:46.200
  • with those eyes
  • 00:16:46.200 --> 00:16:47.090
  • of compassion.
  • 00:16:47.090 --> 00:16:48.070
  • And one day, the Bible tells
  • 00:16:48.070 --> 00:16:49.090
  • us, he went into a boat.
  • 00:16:49.090 --> 00:16:51.290
  • That was the time you
  • 00:16:51.290 --> 00:16:52.180
  • found--you find him
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:53.210
  • sleeping.
  • 00:16:53.210 --> 00:16:55.250
  • That's the 100% man.
  • 00:16:55.280 --> 00:16:58.280
  • He came as man, fully man,
  • 00:16:58.280 --> 00:17:01.230
  • but he's also fully God.
  • 00:17:02.110 --> 00:17:05.110
  • And he slept.
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:06.280
  • He's been healing the whole
  • 00:17:06.280 --> 00:17:08.050
  • day, he's been preaching.
  • 00:17:08.050 --> 00:17:09.160
  • He--that was a much-needed
  • 00:17:09.160 --> 00:17:11.210
  • rest.
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:12.200
  • And then there was a storm
  • 00:17:12.200 --> 00:17:13.250
  • that arose.
  • 00:17:13.250 --> 00:17:14.150
  • I believe the devil is
  • 00:17:14.150 --> 00:17:15.060
  • trying to stop Jesus from
  • 00:17:15.060 --> 00:17:17.000
  • reaching that one man.
  • 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:19.220
  • But Jesus woke up and
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:22.010
  • rebuked the storm with
  • 00:17:22.010 --> 00:17:23.150
  • one word...
  • 00:17:23.150 --> 00:17:25.040
  • the whole thing and the Bible
  • 00:17:25.040 --> 00:17:26.050
  • says there was, like,
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:27.110
  • complete calm.
  • 00:17:27.110 --> 00:17:28.230
  • They were afraid of Jesus,
  • 00:17:28.230 --> 00:17:30.100
  • now, the disciples.
  • 00:17:30.230 --> 00:17:33.230
  • And then they went to
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:35.010
  • the boat, I mean,
  • 00:17:35.010 --> 00:17:35.290
  • they went to the shore.
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:37.000
  • Now, what's interesting is
  • 00:17:37.000 --> 00:17:38.000
  • that one day I was reading
  • 00:17:38.000 --> 00:17:38.250
  • that and I realized that
  • 00:17:38.250 --> 00:17:39.260
  • when Jesus met the Gadarene
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:41.040
  • demoniac, he was
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:42.050
  • the only one who met
  • 00:17:42.050 --> 00:17:43.010
  • the Gadarene demoniac.
  • 00:17:43.010 --> 00:17:43.230
  • Where are the rest?
  • 00:17:43.230 --> 00:17:44.210
  • They travel all together
  • 00:17:44.210 --> 00:17:45.250
  • in one boat, right?
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:46.260
  • Where do you think
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:47.240
  • they were?
  • 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:48.190
  • Just like any of my pastors
  • 00:17:48.190 --> 00:17:49.260
  • today, right or not, amen?
  • 00:17:49.260 --> 00:17:51.290
  • When I meet someone familiar
  • 00:17:51.290 --> 00:17:53.110
  • and it's lunchtime,
  • 00:17:53.110 --> 00:17:55.010
  • they all eat, they leave me
  • 00:17:55.010 --> 00:17:56.080
  • talking, right or not?
  • 00:17:56.080 --> 00:17:57.130
  • That's the way it goes,
  • 00:17:57.130 --> 00:17:58.110
  • I mean. you know,
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:17:59.030
  • you gotta serve the rest,
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:00.110
  • amen, yes.
  • 00:18:00.110 --> 00:18:01.050
  • That's my job.
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:02.090
  • So he was the only one
  • 00:18:02.090 --> 00:18:04.130
  • that stepped out.
  • 00:18:04.130 --> 00:18:04.290
  • They were probably hiding
  • 00:18:04.290 --> 00:18:05.200
  • inside the boat, and he was
  • 00:18:05.200 --> 00:18:07.030
  • the most demonized man
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:08.120
  • and he was breaking chains
  • 00:18:08.120 --> 00:18:09.220
  • but something about him,
  • 00:18:09.220 --> 00:18:11.030
  • all right?
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:11.240
  • He knew that Jesus
  • 00:18:11.240 --> 00:18:12.240
  • is his answer.
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:13.190
  • There's a part of him that
  • 00:18:13.190 --> 00:18:14.190
  • still knows Jesus is
  • 00:18:14.190 --> 00:18:16.020
  • the only answer he--there are
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:17.170
  • so many people today, they
  • 00:18:17.170 --> 00:18:18.120
  • are so bound and all that but
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:19.150
  • in the back of their minds,
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:20.210
  • if they really, really go back
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:22.030
  • to the essence of who they
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:23.200
  • really are and listen
  • 00:18:23.200 --> 00:18:24.240
  • to their heart cry,
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:25.200
  • they'll want Jesus.
  • 00:18:25.200 --> 00:18:28.020
  • And Jesus met him and
  • 00:18:28.020 --> 00:18:30.030
  • he fell right at Jesus's feet.
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:32.250
  • What a beautiful act,
  • 00:18:32.250 --> 00:18:35.040
  • possessed as he is.
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:37.130
  • The devil would--God would
  • 00:18:37.130 --> 00:18:38.110
  • never allow the devil to
  • 00:18:38.110 --> 00:18:39.040
  • touch that free choice of
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:40.260
  • responding to Jesus and
  • 00:18:40.260 --> 00:18:43.150
  • with one word--by the way,
  • 00:18:43.150 --> 00:18:45.020
  • Jesus asked his name.
  • 00:18:45.020 --> 00:18:45.280
  • "What's your name?"
  • 00:18:45.280 --> 00:18:46.240
  • "Legion," all right?
  • 00:18:46.240 --> 00:18:48.230
  • Legion means a troop.
  • 00:18:48.230 --> 00:18:50.250
  • "A troop shall tramp upon
  • 00:18:50.250 --> 00:18:52.130
  • him," but Jesus spoke one
  • 00:18:52.130 --> 00:18:54.170
  • word to all those demons.
  • 00:18:54.170 --> 00:18:57.130
  • Jesus asked the name
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:18:58.120
  • of the demons:
  • 00:18:58.120 --> 00:18:59.030
  • "What's your name?"
  • 00:18:59.030 --> 00:19:00.230
  • The demon says, "A legion,"
  • 00:19:00.230 --> 00:19:02.270
  • which can be 4.000 or 6.000
  • 00:19:02.270 --> 00:19:05.230
  • demons in one man 'cause
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:08.150
  • a legion of--like,
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:11.050
  • during the time of Jesus,
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:12.150
  • the 12th legion of
  • 00:19:12.150 --> 00:19:14.090
  • the Roman military, they were
  • 00:19:14.090 --> 00:19:17.080
  • stationed there in Judea.
  • 00:19:17.210 --> 00:19:20.210
  • They call themself legion
  • 00:19:20.210 --> 00:19:22.090
  • or, in Jerusalem,
  • 00:19:22.090 --> 00:19:23.200
  • 12th legion.
  • 00:19:23.200 --> 00:19:24.260
  • And this pockets of
  • 00:19:24.260 --> 00:19:26.290
  • 6.000 here, 6.000 there,
  • 00:19:26.290 --> 00:19:28.070
  • 6.000 there, and these are
  • 00:19:28.070 --> 00:19:29.270
  • 6.000 demons in one man.
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:32.060
  • Only one word from
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:33.160
  • the Master, "Go," they all left.
  • 00:19:34.050 --> 00:19:37.050
  • They left,
  • 00:19:37.050 --> 00:19:38.040
  • jumped into the pigs, and
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:38.290
  • the pigs commit suicide, amen?
  • 00:19:38.290 --> 00:19:41.250
  • You still can see the place,
  • 00:19:41.250 --> 00:19:42.260
  • the precipice where
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:43.210
  • the pigs jump out.
  • 00:19:43.210 --> 00:19:45.210
  • The pigs know better than
  • 00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:46.220
  • to be demon possessed.
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:47.250
  • Anyway, here is where people
  • 00:19:48.160 --> 00:19:51.160
  • like to, you know,
  • 00:19:51.160 --> 00:19:52.190
  • get diverted and say,
  • 00:19:52.190 --> 00:19:53.280
  • "The swine.
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:54.220
  • Must not eat pork,
  • 00:19:54.220 --> 00:19:55.180
  • must not eat bacon."
  • 00:19:55.180 --> 00:19:56.120
  • No, no, no,
  • 00:19:56.120 --> 00:19:57.150
  • stick to the Word,
  • 00:19:57.150 --> 00:19:58.080
  • stick to the Bible, okay?
  • 00:19:58.080 --> 00:19:59.080
  • It's not about eating bacon
  • 00:19:59.080 --> 00:20:00.190
  • and all that.
  • 00:20:00.190 --> 00:20:02.040
  • But what we see here is that
  • 00:20:02.040 --> 00:20:03.100
  • a legion tramped upon
  • 00:20:03.100 --> 00:20:05.280
  • this man, all right?
  • 00:20:05.280 --> 00:20:07.160
  • "But he shall triumph
  • 00:20:07.160 --> 00:20:09.070
  • at last."
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:10.020
  • And how did he triumph?
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:10.280
  • Through Jesus.
  • 00:20:10.280 --> 00:20:12.170
  • So the prophecy is about
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:13.130
  • Jesus and it's about
  • 00:20:13.130 --> 00:20:15.090
  • the Gospels, actually,
  • 00:20:15.090 --> 00:20:16.210
  • and even the events.
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:18.090
  • Isn't it beautiful?
  • 00:20:18.090 --> 00:20:21.070
  • I might write a book called
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:22.010
  • "Secrets to the 12 Tribes'
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:23.250
  • Blessing," one day, amen.
  • 00:20:23.250 --> 00:20:26.100
  • That is,
  • 00:20:26.100 --> 00:20:26.290
  • somebody don't beat me first.
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:27.290
  • Remember,
  • 00:20:27.290 --> 00:20:28.230
  • original down here.
  • 00:20:28.230 --> 00:20:30.200
  • The word "Gad," gut.
  • 00:20:30.200 --> 00:20:33.110
  • Look at the tribal
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:34.280
  • allocations of
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:36.020
  • the territories,
  • 00:20:36.020 --> 00:20:37.000
  • it's all marked here.
  • 00:20:37.000 --> 00:20:38.010
  • Look at this picture of
  • 00:20:38.010 --> 00:20:38.220
  • the territories.
  • 00:20:38.220 --> 00:20:39.260
  • The 12 tribes is all here.
  • 00:20:39.260 --> 00:20:41.080
  • Can you see Gad, the Gad?
  • 00:20:41.080 --> 00:20:43.280
  • Gad means a troop,
  • 00:20:43.280 --> 00:20:45.210
  • all right?
  • 00:20:45.210 --> 00:20:46.230
  • And Gad went all the way
  • 00:20:46.230 --> 00:20:47.250
  • to the southern part
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:49.070
  • of Galilee.
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:50.110
  • Later on during the time of
  • 00:20:50.110 --> 00:20:51.240
  • Jesus, it went upwards to
  • 00:20:51.240 --> 00:20:53.040
  • the western coast of Sea of
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:55.190
  • Galilee, and the whole place
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:57.250
  • began to be called what?
  • 00:20:57.250 --> 00:20:58.240
  • Gadara.
  • 00:20:58.240 --> 00:21:01.100
  • That's why you have
  • 00:21:01.100 --> 00:21:02.110
  • the Gadarene demoniac.
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:04.110
  • So back to the prophecy
  • 00:21:04.110 --> 00:21:05.170
  • again, all right?
  • 00:21:05.170 --> 00:21:06.210
  • It is literally Gad.
  • 00:21:06.210 --> 00:21:08.090
  • Can you see that?
  • 00:21:08.090 --> 00:21:09.170
  • Next one: "Bread from Asher
  • 00:21:09.170 --> 00:21:11.110
  • shall be rich, and he shall
  • 00:21:11.110 --> 00:21:12.130
  • yield royal dainties."
  • 00:21:12.130 --> 00:21:14.000
  • Now, this is something
  • 00:21:14.000 --> 00:21:14.270
  • fresh.
  • 00:21:14.270 --> 00:21:15.260
  • I haven't shared this
  • 00:21:15.260 --> 00:21:16.150
  • before, all right?
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:17.220
  • But would you like to know
  • 00:21:17.220 --> 00:21:18.270
  • what this is about?
  • 00:21:18.270 --> 00:21:20.050
  • Let me read: "Bread,"
  • 00:21:20.050 --> 00:21:22.060
  • roti, lechem in Hebrew,
  • 00:21:22.060 --> 00:21:24.260
  • chapati, amen?
  • 00:21:24.260 --> 00:21:27.250
  • One of the first things I
  • 00:21:27.250 --> 00:21:28.260
  • did when I reached
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:30.050
  • Singapore, not the first
  • 00:21:30.050 --> 00:21:31.260
  • thing, though.
  • 00:21:31.260 --> 00:21:33.130
  • The first few food I ate
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:35.060
  • was chapati, all right?
  • 00:21:35.060 --> 00:21:37.110
  • "Bread from Asher shall be
  • 00:21:37.110 --> 00:21:39.090
  • rich," wow.
  • 00:21:39.090 --> 00:21:41.030
  • What is this bread?
  • 00:21:41.030 --> 00:21:42.010
  • "And he shall yield
  • 00:21:42.010 --> 00:21:43.120
  • royal dainties."
  • 00:21:43.120 --> 00:21:45.120
  • What is this?
  • 00:21:45.120 --> 00:21:46.050
  • What is this?
  • 00:21:46.050 --> 00:21:47.060
  • Again, let's look at
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:48.020
  • the tribal territory
  • 00:21:48.020 --> 00:21:49.040
  • allocations, all right?
  • 00:21:49.040 --> 00:21:50.180
  • Look at Gad.
  • 00:21:50.180 --> 00:21:52.120
  • Where is Gad?
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:53.090
  • Oh, Asher, sorry, Asher.
  • 00:21:53.090 --> 00:21:54.160
  • Where's Asher?
  • 00:21:54.160 --> 00:21:55.190
  • Right on top.
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:56.120
  • Can you see Asher?
  • 00:21:56.120 --> 00:21:57.190
  • Can you see the city of
  • 00:21:57.190 --> 00:21:58.160
  • Tyre?
  • 00:21:58.160 --> 00:22:00.290
  • T-Y-R-E, Tyre.
  • 00:22:00.290 --> 00:22:02.080
  • Can you see Tyre?
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:03.140
  • Something happened there
  • 00:22:03.140 --> 00:22:04.160
  • in the ministry of Jesus.
  • 00:22:04.160 --> 00:22:05.140
  • That's the northernmost
  • 00:22:05.140 --> 00:22:08.080
  • that Jesus ever went that's
  • 00:22:08.080 --> 00:22:09.270
  • recorded in the Gospels,
  • 00:22:09.270 --> 00:22:10.280
  • and there he saw
  • 00:22:10.280 --> 00:22:11.220
  • a Syrophoenician woman,
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:12.280
  • remember that?
  • 00:22:12.280 --> 00:22:13.270
  • She was begging Jesus
  • 00:22:13.270 --> 00:22:15.160
  • to heal her daughter.
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:18.120
  • Her daughter was demon
  • 00:22:18.120 --> 00:22:19.040
  • possessed but don't forget,
  • 00:22:19.040 --> 00:22:20.050
  • Jesus's First Coming
  • 00:22:20.050 --> 00:22:21.110
  • is to the--not the Gentiles,
  • 00:22:21.110 --> 00:22:23.070
  • but to the Jews,
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:24.120
  • to the lost sheep
  • 00:22:24.120 --> 00:22:25.100
  • of the house of Israel.
  • 00:22:25.100 --> 00:22:26.210
  • But this woman acted as
  • 00:22:26.210 --> 00:22:28.010
  • if she was a Gentile.
  • 00:22:28.010 --> 00:22:29.040
  • She was pretending when she
  • 00:22:29.040 --> 00:22:30.070
  • came to Jesus and no one
  • 00:22:30.070 --> 00:22:31.080
  • can pretend.
  • 00:22:31.080 --> 00:22:32.010
  • Because I asked the Lord
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:33.070
  • a long time ago,
  • 00:22:33.070 --> 00:22:34.090
  • why does he hate hypocrisy.
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:35.210
  • Now, he doesn't hate
  • 00:22:35.210 --> 00:22:36.200
  • hypocrites; he loves them,
  • 00:22:36.200 --> 00:22:38.290
  • but he hates hypocrisy.
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:40.130
  • You can see that, amen?
  • 00:22:40.130 --> 00:22:41.290
  • He has strong words
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:43.090
  • for hypocrisy.
  • 00:22:43.090 --> 00:22:44.040
  • Even the prostitute
  • 00:22:44.040 --> 00:22:44.240
  • who came to him, he has
  • 00:22:44.240 --> 00:22:45.270
  • no strong words for her.
  • 00:22:45.270 --> 00:22:47.190
  • But hypocrisy, why?
  • 00:22:47.190 --> 00:22:48.230
  • Because the Lord says, "When
  • 00:22:48.230 --> 00:22:49.220
  • you pretend to be what
  • 00:22:49.220 --> 00:22:50.240
  • you are not and I love you,
  • 00:22:50.240 --> 00:22:52.030
  • you will never feel it.
  • 00:22:52.030 --> 00:22:53.150
  • You'll never know it,
  • 00:22:53.150 --> 00:22:54.160
  • because you know you
  • 00:22:54.160 --> 00:22:55.130
  • are pretending.
  • 00:22:55.130 --> 00:22:56.180
  • But when you don't pretend
  • 00:22:56.180 --> 00:22:57.120
  • and I love you, with your
  • 00:22:57.120 --> 00:22:59.170
  • sins and warts and all,
  • 00:22:59.170 --> 00:23:01.120
  • you know you are loved."
  • 00:23:02.160 --> 00:23:05.160
  • I love that.
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:08.050
  • Can I have a good "Amen"?
