  • And everybody was there. the real guest of honor was

  • The real guest of honor was not at the table of honor.

  • Not at the table of honor. he was not up front.
  • 00:04:50.436 --> 00:04:52.605
  • He was not up front. he was among the people
  • 00:04:52.672 --> 00:04:54.006
  • He was among the people and they didn't even
  • 00:04:54.073 --> 00:04:55.308
  • And they didn't even know he was there.
  • 00:04:55.375 --> 00:04:58.578
  • Know he was there. did you know that you can
  • 00:04:58.644 --> 00:04:59.512
  • Did you know that you can be in the presence of god
  • 00:04:59.579 --> 00:05:03.049
  • Be in the presence of god and not get the benefits of god
  • 00:05:03.116 --> 00:05:06.486
  • And not get the benefits of god until circumstances arise
  • 00:05:06.552 --> 00:05:09.122
  • Until circumstances arise that only god can handle?
  • 00:05:09.188 --> 00:05:12.792
  • That only god can handle? sometimes god manipulates
  • 00:05:12.859 --> 00:05:15.128
  • Sometimes god manipulates circumstances so that you
  • 00:05:15.194 --> 00:05:16.929
  • Circumstances so that you can come into an awareness
  • 00:05:16.996 --> 00:05:19.465

  • But it's amazing to me how god can take and let
  • 00:05:31.310 --> 00:05:33.813
  • God can take and let something happen.
  • 00:05:33.880 --> 00:05:35.481

  • 00:05:35.548 --> 00:05:36.616

  • And you develop an appreciation for him,
  • 00:05:51.464 --> 00:05:53.332
  • An appreciation for him, and what he can offer
  • 00:05:53.399 --> 00:05:54.467
  • And what he can offer in your life.
  • 00:05:54.534 --> 00:05:55.768
  • In your life. and god has a way of putting
  • 00:05:55.835 --> 00:05:57.136
  • And god has a way of putting you in circumstances that cause
  • 00:05:57.203 --> 00:05:59.439
  • You in circumstances that cause you to need him.

  • You to need him. nobody was praying
  • 00:06:02.809 --> 00:06:03.676
  • Nobody was praying at this party.
  • 00:06:03.743 --> 00:06:05.311
  • At this party. nobody was doing anything
  • 00:06:05.378 --> 00:06:07.046
  • Nobody was doing anything but drinking and partying
  • 00:06:07.113 --> 00:06:09.015
  • But drinking and partying and dancing and having
  • 00:06:09.081 --> 00:06:10.683
  • And dancing and having the biggest time,
  • 00:06:10.750 --> 00:06:12.018
  • The biggest time, but he knows how in the midst
  • 00:06:12.084 --> 00:06:13.886
  • But he knows how in the midst of a party to get
  • 00:06:13.953 --> 00:06:16.055
  • Of a party to get your attention.
  • 00:06:16.122 --> 00:06:19.025
  • Your attention. it ought to make us tremble,
  • 00:06:19.091 --> 00:06:20.426
  • It ought to make us tremble, it really should.
  • 00:06:20.493 --> 00:06:22.328
  • It really should. it ought to make us shudder
  • 00:06:22.395 --> 00:06:24.597
  • It ought to make us shudder to think how many times jesus
  • 00:06:24.664 --> 00:06:27.967
  • To think how many times jesus sat back in a corner.
  • 00:06:28.034 --> 00:06:30.036
  • Sat back in a corner. and he went with us to every
  • 00:06:30.102 --> 00:06:32.505
  • And he went with us to every situation we got ourselves in.
  • 00:06:32.572 --> 00:06:35.141
  • Situation we got ourselves in. he was at the party,
  • 00:06:35.208 --> 00:06:36.242
  • He was at the party, you know, that party.
  • 00:06:36.309 --> 00:06:38.644
  • You know, that party. he was there.
  • 00:06:38.711 --> 00:06:39.779
  • He was there. you know, that hotel room,
  • 00:06:39.846 --> 00:06:41.747
  • You know, that hotel room, you know, that situation,
  • 00:06:41.814 --> 00:06:43.583
  • You know, that situation, you know, that dog track,
  • 00:06:43.649 --> 00:06:45.284
  • You know, that dog track, you know, i don't know,
  • 00:06:45.351 --> 00:06:48.054
  • You know, i don't know, he goes to places like that.
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:49.822
  • He goes to places like that. he's not just holy jesus,
  • 00:06:49.889 --> 00:06:51.491
  • He's not just holy jesus, who comes the church,
  • 00:06:51.557 --> 00:06:52.758
  • Who comes the church, he was there,
  • 00:06:52.825 --> 00:06:53.726
  • He was there, and they didn't even know
  • 00:06:53.793 --> 00:06:54.694
  • And they didn't even know he was there.
  • 00:06:54.760 --> 00:06:57.396
  • He was there. and what's so amazing is he's
  • 00:06:57.463 --> 00:06:58.731
  • And what's so amazing is he's sitting there in the corner,
  • 00:06:58.798 --> 00:07:00.333
  • Sitting there in the corner, while they're having
  • 00:07:00.399 --> 00:07:01.667
  • While they're having their party,
  • 00:07:01.734 --> 00:07:02.635
  • Their party, and they are unaware
  • 00:07:02.702 --> 00:07:04.804
  • And they are unaware and could care less about him
  • 00:07:04.871 --> 00:07:07.006
  • And could care less about him and anything he has to offer
  • 00:07:07.073 --> 00:07:10.810
  • And anything he has to offer until the party ran out of wine.
  • 00:07:10.877 --> 00:07:17.116
  • Until the party ran out of wine. they had been dancing,
  • 00:07:17.183 --> 00:07:18.417
  • They had been dancing, music, carrying on,
  • 00:07:18.484 --> 00:07:21.254
  • Music, carrying on, but they ran out of wine.
  • 00:07:21.320 --> 00:07:24.824
  • But they ran out of wine. wine in the bible represents
  • 00:07:24.891 --> 00:07:27.260
  • Wine in the bible represents sustainable joy.
  • 00:07:27.326 --> 00:07:29.762
  • Sustainable joy. the party that the devil will
  • 00:07:29.829 --> 00:07:31.497
  • The party that the devil will throw you is one that sooner
  • 00:07:31.564 --> 00:07:34.066
  • Throw you is one that sooner or later will run out of wine.
  • 00:07:34.133 --> 00:07:38.371
  • Or later will run out of wine. sooner or later,
  • 00:07:38.437 --> 00:07:39.539
  • Sooner or later, there's pleasure in sin
  • 00:07:39.605 --> 00:07:40.940
  • There's pleasure in sin for a season,
  • 00:07:41.007 --> 00:07:42.208
  • For a season, but then the party,
  • 00:07:42.275 --> 00:07:44.477
  • But then the party, they're partying without wine.
  • 00:07:44.544 --> 00:07:48.314
  • They're partying without wine. and at some point,
  • 00:07:48.381 --> 00:07:50.816
  • And at some point, it hits them,
  • 00:07:50.883 --> 00:07:52.552
  • It hits them, we don't have anything
  • 00:07:52.618 --> 00:07:53.953
  • We don't have anything to sustain the party.
  • 00:07:54.020 --> 00:07:57.256
  • To sustain the party. the party scene isn't
  • 00:07:57.323 --> 00:08:00.026
  • The party scene isn't as great as you thought it was,
  • 00:08:00.092 --> 00:08:02.862
  • As great as you thought it was, the money hasn't got the power
  • 00:08:02.929 --> 00:08:04.697
  • The money hasn't got the power that you think it does,
  • 00:08:04.764 --> 00:08:06.832
  • That you think it does, the person that you are willing
  • 00:08:06.899 --> 00:08:09.335
  • The person that you are willing to wreck your world for doesn't
  • 00:08:09.402 --> 00:08:12.471
  • To wreck your world for doesn't fulfill you like you thought
  • 00:08:12.538 --> 00:08:14.874
  • Fulfill you like you thought he would or she would,
  • 00:08:14.941 --> 00:08:17.009
  • He would or she would, because everything
  • 00:08:17.076 --> 00:08:18.744
  • Because everything the devil offers you,
  • 00:08:18.811 --> 00:08:20.346
  • The devil offers you, he offers you the best first
  • 00:08:20.413 --> 00:08:22.615
  • He offers you the best first and then it gets worse
  • 00:08:22.682 --> 00:08:24.083
  • And then it gets worse and worse,
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:24.784
  • And worse, and the wine runs out
  • 00:08:24.850 --> 00:08:26.852
  • And the wine runs out of his party every time.
  • 00:08:26.919 --> 00:08:29.889
  • Of his party every time. there is no sustainable joy
  • 00:08:29.956 --> 00:08:33.659
  • There is no sustainable joy in turning your back on god
  • 00:08:33.726 --> 00:08:36.462
  • In turning your back on god and good and walking away from
  • 00:08:36.529 --> 00:08:39.065
  • And good and walking away from the presence of the lord.
  • 00:08:39.131 --> 00:08:40.600
  • The presence of the lord. there is no sustainable joy.
  • 00:08:40.666 --> 00:08:43.402
  • There is no sustainable joy. no amount of money can
  • 00:08:43.469 --> 00:08:44.370
  • No amount of money can give it to you.
  • 00:08:44.437 --> 00:08:45.571
  • Give it to you. no amount of success can
  • 00:08:45.638 --> 00:08:47.206
  • No amount of success can give it to you.
  • 00:08:47.273 --> 00:08:48.207
  • Give it to you. no amount.
  • 00:08:48.274 --> 00:08:49.008
  • No amount. and i don't care where you live,
  • 00:08:49.075 --> 00:08:50.109
  • And i don't care where you live, what neighborhood.
  • 00:08:50.176 --> 00:08:51.177
  • What neighborhood. oh, if i had that i would
  • 00:08:51.243 --> 00:08:53.245
  • Oh, if i had that i would have sustainable joy.
  • 00:08:53.312 --> 00:08:54.614
  • Have sustainable joy. no, you would not.
  • 00:08:54.680 --> 00:08:56.148
  • No, you would not. if jesus is not the center
  • 00:08:56.215 --> 00:08:58.250
  • If jesus is not the center of your life,
  • 00:08:58.317 --> 00:08:59.385
  • Of your life, you will never know joy,
  • 00:08:59.452 --> 00:09:00.720
  • You will never know joy, peace, and the happiness
  • 00:09:00.786 --> 00:09:03.356
  • Peace, and the happiness that god wants us to have.
  • 00:09:03.422 --> 00:09:05.024
  • That god wants us to have. clap your hands and praise
  • 00:09:05.091 --> 00:09:06.559
  • Clap your hands and praise the lord somebody.
  • 00:09:06.626 --> 00:09:10.863
  • The lord somebody. it was in this moment that when
  • 00:09:10.930 --> 00:09:13.265
  • It was in this moment that when something went out of the party.
  • 00:09:13.332 --> 00:09:16.469
  • Something went out of the party. everybody's looking at the bride
  • 00:09:16.535 --> 00:09:19.005
  • Everybody's looking at the bride up to this moment, the couple,
  • 00:09:19.071 --> 00:09:21.173
  • Up to this moment, the couple, looking at the governor,
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:22.675
  • Looking at the governor, looking at the celebrities that
  • 00:09:22.742 --> 00:09:25.911
  • Looking at the celebrities that were at the main host table,
  • 00:09:25.978 --> 00:09:28.414
  • Were at the main host table, looking at all the wedding party
  • 00:09:28.481 --> 00:09:31.550
  • Looking at all the wedding party and what they're wearing
  • 00:09:31.617 --> 00:09:32.551
  • And what they're wearing and all of that.
  • 00:09:32.618 --> 00:09:33.185
  • And all of that. but the moment that
  • 00:09:33.252 --> 00:09:34.587
  • But the moment that it ran out, all attention --
  • 00:09:34.654 --> 00:09:38.224
  • It ran out, all attention -- isn't it funny how we can
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:39.392
  • Isn't it funny how we can focus on everybody but jesus
  • 00:09:39.458 --> 00:09:43.396
  • Focus on everybody but jesus until we get in an emergency.
  • 00:09:43.462 --> 00:09:46.499
  • Until we get in an emergency. jesus didn't plan on doing
  • 00:09:46.565 --> 00:09:48.134
  • Jesus didn't plan on doing anything, his mother made him.
  • 00:09:48.200 --> 00:09:50.069
  • Anything, his mother made him. he said it's not my time mother.
  • 00:09:50.136 --> 00:09:51.637
  • He said it's not my time mother. and she said whatever
  • 00:09:51.704 --> 00:09:52.672
  • And she said whatever he says do, do it.
  • 00:09:52.738 --> 00:09:53.639
  • He says do, do it. that means you 'gon
  • 00:09:53.706 --> 00:09:54.306
  • That means you 'gon do something,
  • 00:09:54.373 --> 00:09:54.874
  • Do something, now out there and do it.
  • 00:09:54.940 --> 00:09:59.712
  • Now out there and do it. but this was an emergency.
  • 00:09:59.779 --> 00:10:02.481
  • But this was an emergency. all of a sudden, the party
  • 00:10:02.548 --> 00:10:04.183
  • All of a sudden, the party crowd is talking about,
  • 00:10:04.250 --> 00:10:06.118
  • Crowd is talking about, "if there is a god up there,
  • 00:10:06.185 --> 00:10:07.853
  • "if there is a god up there, we sure could use some help."
  • 00:10:07.920 --> 00:10:10.456
  • We sure could use some help." it's kinda like the church has
  • 00:10:10.523 --> 00:10:11.924
  • It's kinda like the church has come to the world's party
  • 00:10:11.991 --> 00:10:13.592
  • Come to the world's party after all that we've been
  • 00:10:13.659 --> 00:10:15.127
  • After all that we've been through the last year or so.
  • 00:10:15.194 --> 00:10:18.064
  • Through the last year or so. now is the time for jesus
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:22.268
  • Now is the time for jesus to give what
  • 00:10:22.334 --> 00:10:24.336
  • To give what the world is missing.
  • 00:10:24.403 --> 00:10:26.906
  • The world is missing. and notice how he does it.
  • 00:10:26.972 --> 00:10:29.542
  • And notice how he does it. in verse six, he said bring
  • 00:10:29.608 --> 00:10:31.243
  • In verse six, he said bring me the six ceremonial pots
  • 00:10:31.310 --> 00:10:35.214
  • Me the six ceremonial pots and fill them with water
  • 00:10:35.281 --> 00:10:37.316
  • And fill them with water to the brim.
  • 00:10:37.383 --> 00:10:39.518
  • To the brim. i want you to bring those six,
  • 00:10:39.585 --> 00:10:42.121
  • I want you to bring those six, six is the number of man,
  • 00:10:42.188 --> 00:10:43.856
  • Six is the number of man, six is the number of sin.
  • 00:10:43.923 --> 00:10:46.392
  • Six is the number of sin. and they were ceremonial pots
  • 00:10:46.459 --> 00:10:48.894
  • And they were ceremonial pots that were used by the jews
  • 00:10:48.961 --> 00:10:50.830
  • That were used by the jews to wash themselves before
  • 00:10:50.896 --> 00:10:52.598
  • To wash themselves before they went into the temple.
  • 00:10:52.665 --> 00:10:55.768
  • They went into the temple. he said, i want you to bring
  • 00:10:55.835 --> 00:10:57.503
  • He said, i want you to bring the old religious pots
  • 00:10:57.570 --> 00:11:01.006
  • The old religious pots and i'm going to work a new
  • 00:11:01.073 --> 00:11:03.375
  • And i'm going to work a new miracle in old pots.
  • 00:11:03.442 --> 00:11:07.179
  • Miracle in old pots. i believe those pots represent
  • 00:11:07.246 --> 00:11:08.914
  • I believe those pots represent denominations,
  • 00:11:08.981 --> 00:11:12.418
  • Denominations, represent the church that
  • 00:11:12.485 --> 00:11:15.788
  • Represent the church that basically has nothing to offer
  • 00:11:15.855 --> 00:11:18.090
  • Basically has nothing to offer a world that has no joy.
  • 00:11:18.157 --> 00:11:20.159
  • A world that has no joy. because we have become
  • 00:11:20.226 --> 00:11:21.494
  • Because we have become so religious,
  • 00:11:21.560 --> 00:11:22.595
  • So religious, all we care about is our
  • 00:11:22.661 --> 00:11:24.864
  • All we care about is our own personal righteousness
  • 00:11:24.930 --> 00:11:26.465
  • Own personal righteousness and holiness and how pure
  • 00:11:26.532 --> 00:11:28.467
  • And holiness and how pure and clean we are when
  • 00:11:28.534 --> 00:11:30.269
  • And clean we are when the world is dying,
  • 00:11:30.336 --> 00:11:31.604
  • The world is dying, and they're dying right
  • 00:11:31.670 --> 00:11:32.972
  • And they're dying right before our eyes.
  • 00:11:33.038 --> 00:11:34.240
  • Before our eyes. and the lord says,
  • 00:11:34.306 --> 00:11:35.541
  • And the lord says, i'm going to use
  • 00:11:35.608 --> 00:11:36.442
  • I'm going to use those old ceremonial pots.
  • 00:11:36.509 --> 00:11:39.078
  • Those old ceremonial pots. but i'm going to have to do a
  • 00:11:39.145 --> 00:11:40.079
  • But i'm going to have to do a new miracle with some old pots.
  • 00:11:40.146 --> 00:11:43.382
  • New miracle with some old pots. and i wonder sometimes
  • 00:11:43.449 --> 00:11:44.350
  • And i wonder sometimes if we don't watch it,
  • 00:11:44.416 --> 00:11:45.518
  • If we don't watch it, that we don't come to church,
  • 00:11:45.584 --> 00:11:47.153
  • That we don't come to church, and we become those old pots.
  • 00:11:47.219 --> 00:11:49.088
  • And we become those old pots. we get in here and we hear
  • 00:11:49.155 --> 00:11:50.689
  • We get in here and we hear a song like that god
  • 00:11:50.756 --> 00:11:52.258
  • A song like that god can dissolve plates,
  • 00:11:52.324 --> 00:11:53.459
  • Can dissolve plates, god can heal cancer.
  • 00:11:53.526 --> 00:11:54.894
  • God can heal cancer. and we almost give it mental
  • 00:11:54.960 --> 00:11:56.529
  • And we almost give it mental assent and act like i don't
  • 00:11:56.595 --> 00:11:58.164
  • Assent and act like i don't really don't have miracles
  • 00:11:58.230 --> 00:11:59.999
  • Really don't have miracles might happen.
  • 00:12:00.065 --> 00:12:00.633
  • Might happen. but i don't really believe
  • 00:12:00.699 --> 00:12:02.334
  • But i don't really believe for anything.
  • 00:12:02.401 --> 00:12:03.302
  • For anything. you know what you are?
  • 00:12:03.369 --> 00:12:04.470
  • You know what you are? an old pot that needs to get
  • 00:12:04.537 --> 00:12:06.572
  • An old pot that needs to get in the presence of jesus,
  • 00:12:06.639 --> 00:12:08.274
  • In the presence of jesus, and let him fill you
  • 00:12:08.340 --> 00:12:09.708
  • And let him fill you to the brim.
  • 00:12:09.775 --> 00:12:10.943
  • To the brim. and you can say,
  • 00:12:11.010 --> 00:12:12.144
  • And you can say, jesus christ the same yesterday,
  • 00:12:12.211 --> 00:12:16.182
  • Jesus christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, what he did,
  • 00:12:16.248 --> 00:12:19.418
  • Today, and forever, what he did, he can still do.
  • 00:12:19.485 --> 00:12:20.619
  • He can still do. what he was, he still is.
  • 00:12:20.686 --> 00:12:22.655
  • What he was, he still is. what he said, he's still saying.
  • 00:12:22.721 --> 00:12:26.625
  • What he said, he's still saying. he's not the great i used to be,
  • 00:12:26.692 --> 00:12:28.894
  • He's not the great i used to be, he's not the great
  • 00:12:28.961 --> 00:12:29.695
  • He's not the great i'm going to be.
  • 00:12:29.762 --> 00:12:30.930
  • I'm going to be. he is the great i am.
  • 00:12:30.996 --> 00:12:37.570
  • He is the great i am. he said fill them with
  • 00:12:37.636 --> 00:12:38.671
  • He said fill them with water to the brim.
  • 00:12:38.737 --> 00:12:42.641
  • Water to the brim. and i like the fact that he
  • 00:12:42.708 --> 00:12:44.043
  • And i like the fact that he said fill them with water
  • 00:12:44.109 --> 00:12:45.411
  • Said fill them with water to the brim.
  • 00:12:45.477 --> 00:12:47.613
  • To the brim. see if they had brought jesus
  • 00:12:47.680 --> 00:12:50.216
  • See if they had brought jesus pots full of grapes,
  • 00:12:50.282 --> 00:12:52.017
  • Pots full of grapes, and he would have made them
  • 00:12:52.084 --> 00:12:52.985
  • And he would have made them turned him into wine.
  • 00:12:53.052 --> 00:12:55.087
  • Turned him into wine. that would be kind
  • 00:12:55.154 --> 00:12:56.021
  • That would be kind of understandable a little bit.
  • 00:12:56.088 --> 00:13:01.293
  • Of understandable a little bit. but he said, i want you to bring
  • 00:13:01.360 --> 00:13:02.928
  • But he said, i want you to bring me something that has none
  • 00:13:02.995 --> 00:13:08.467
  • Me something that has none of the source of what i will
  • 00:13:08.534 --> 00:13:09.969
  • Of the source of what i will make out of it in itself.
  • 00:13:10.035 --> 00:13:14.240
  • Make out of it in itself. there is no way that water
  • 00:13:14.306 --> 00:13:15.908
  • There is no way that water can make itself by its own
  • 00:13:15.975 --> 00:13:18.944
  • Can make itself by its own actions into wine.
  • 00:13:19.011 --> 00:13:23.449
  • Actions into wine. they're two different
  • 00:13:23.515 --> 00:13:25.117
  • They're two different completely creations
  • 00:13:25.184 --> 00:13:26.552
  • Completely creations one is water,
  • 00:13:26.619 --> 00:13:27.686
  • One is water, and one comes from grapes
  • 00:13:27.753 --> 00:13:29.688
  • And one comes from grapes and it's wine.
  • 00:13:29.755 --> 00:13:30.656
  • And it's wine. and the two are not the same.
  • 00:13:30.723 --> 00:13:32.925
  • And the two are not the same. and he said i want you to fill
  • 00:13:32.992 --> 00:13:34.727
  • And he said i want you to fill it to the brim with what i know
  • 00:13:34.793 --> 00:13:39.031
  • It to the brim with what i know it cannot be to please me.
  • 00:13:39.098 --> 00:13:42.801
  • It cannot be to please me. and when it's full,
  • 00:13:42.868 --> 00:13:44.737
  • And when it's full, and when you know
  • 00:13:44.803 --> 00:13:45.704
  • And when you know in other words,
  • 00:13:45.771 --> 00:13:46.405
  • In other words, what's you're full of.
  • 00:13:46.472 --> 00:13:50.576
  • What's you're full of. pride, religiosity, legalism,
  • 00:13:50.643 --> 00:13:56.215
  • Pride, religiosity, legalism, self justification,
  • 00:13:56.282 --> 00:13:58.918
  • Self justification, your own holiness,
  • 00:13:58.984 --> 00:14:00.252
  • Your own holiness, your own righteousness,
  • 00:14:00.319 --> 00:14:01.820
  • Your own righteousness, your laundry list of i gave
  • 00:14:01.887 --> 00:14:03.389
  • Your laundry list of i gave my tithe this week,
  • 00:14:03.455 --> 00:14:04.623
  • My tithe this week, blah blah blah.
  • 00:14:04.690 --> 00:14:05.591
  • Blah blah blah. and god says when you finally
  • 00:14:05.658 --> 00:14:07.259
  • And god says when you finally get full of what --
  • 00:14:07.326 --> 00:14:08.894
  • Get full of what -- i want you to bring me
  • 00:14:08.961 --> 00:14:10.296
  • I want you to bring me what you're full
  • 00:14:10.362 --> 00:14:10.963
  • What you're full of that you can never,
  • 00:14:11.030 --> 00:14:12.698
  • Of that you can never, ever, ever --
  • 00:14:12.765 --> 00:14:13.532
  • Ever, ever -- all your righteousness,
  • 00:14:13.599 --> 00:14:15.067
  • All your righteousness, when you're full of it.
  • 00:14:15.134 --> 00:14:16.435
  • When you're full of it. all your righteousness
  • 00:14:16.502 --> 00:14:17.636
  • All your righteousness is as filthy rags to me.
  • 00:14:17.703 --> 00:14:22.775
  • Is as filthy rags to me. and he says, "you come, now."
  • 00:14:22.841 --> 00:14:25.411
  • And he says, "you come, now." and i cannot explain to you,
  • 00:14:25.477 --> 00:14:26.979
  • And i cannot explain to you, the bible isn't clear.
  • 00:14:27.046 --> 00:14:28.948
  • The bible isn't clear. it does give one hint, it said,
  • 00:14:29.014 --> 00:14:30.783
  • It does give one hint, it said, and he said to them,
  • 00:14:30.849 --> 00:14:33.385
  • And he said to them, when they filled it full,
  • 00:14:33.452 --> 00:14:35.587
  • When they filled it full, he said "pour it out,"
  • 00:14:35.654 --> 00:14:38.691
  • He said "pour it out," and that means they were
  • 00:14:38.757 --> 00:14:39.825
  • And that means they were pouring it from one vessel
  • 00:14:39.892 --> 00:14:43.362
  • Pouring it from one vessel to another vessel.
  • 00:14:43.429 --> 00:14:44.930
  • To another vessel. and while the pouring
  • 00:14:44.997 --> 00:14:47.166
  • And while the pouring was taking place,
  • 00:14:47.232 --> 00:14:49.501
  • Was taking place, the power of his presence --
  • 00:14:49.568 --> 00:14:53.706
  • The power of his presence -- it's not enough to sing songs
  • 00:14:53.772 --> 00:14:55.374
  • It's not enough to sing songs and give talks from the pulpit.
  • 00:14:55.441 --> 00:14:58.243
  • And give talks from the pulpit. there will be no transformation.
  • 00:14:58.310 --> 00:15:01.380
  • There will be no transformation. water is weak, wine is strong.
  • 00:15:01.447 --> 00:15:06.318
  • Water is weak, wine is strong. water is cheap, worthless,
  • 00:15:06.385 --> 00:15:10.622
  • Water is cheap, worthless, wine is expensive.
  • 00:15:10.689 --> 00:15:14.660
  • Wine is expensive. water is tasteless,
  • 00:15:14.727 --> 00:15:19.398
  • Water is tasteless, wine is intoxicating.
  • 00:15:19.465 --> 00:15:22.301
  • Wine is intoxicating. how in the world can
  • 00:15:22.368 --> 00:15:23.402
  • How in the world can i make that into this?
  • 00:15:23.469 --> 00:15:27.072
  • I make that into this? there's only one answer,
  • 00:15:27.139 --> 00:15:30.142
  • There's only one answer, it has to get in the power
  • 00:15:30.209 --> 00:15:31.577
  • It has to get in the power of the presence of jesus.
  • 00:15:31.643 --> 00:15:34.513
  • Of the presence of jesus. and i'm so desperate for that
  • 00:15:34.580 --> 00:15:36.348
  • And i'm so desperate for that because our young people,
  • 00:15:36.415 --> 00:15:39.284
  • Because our young people, they hear sermons and stuff,
  • 00:15:39.351 --> 00:15:40.786
  • They hear sermons and stuff, but if we don't get desperate
  • 00:15:40.853 --> 00:15:43.856
  • But if we don't get desperate to get ourselves
  • 00:15:43.922 --> 00:15:45.657
  • To get ourselves in these services,
  • 00:15:45.724 --> 00:15:47.459
  • In these services, in the power of his presence...
  • 00:15:47.526 --> 00:15:52.364
  • In the power of his presence... my greatest gift
  • 00:15:52.431 --> 00:15:53.899
  • My greatest gift to communicate will not
  • 00:15:53.966 --> 00:15:55.401
  • To communicate will not transform water into wine.
  • 00:15:55.467 --> 00:15:57.469
  • Transform water into wine. but if i can somehow
  • 00:15:57.536 --> 00:15:58.737
  • But if i can somehow become a gateway.
  • 00:15:58.804 --> 00:16:00.139
  • Become a gateway. and if the team can somehow
  • 00:16:00.205 --> 00:16:01.740
  • And if the team can somehow and if you can somehow
  • 00:16:01.807 --> 00:16:02.975
  • And if you can somehow with your hunger
  • 00:16:03.042 --> 00:16:04.243
  • With your hunger become a gateway that
  • 00:16:04.309 --> 00:16:05.577
  • Become a gateway that we get people into the power
  • 00:16:05.644 --> 00:16:08.147
  • We get people into the power of his presence.
  • 00:16:08.213 --> 00:16:09.515
  • Of his presence. suddenly as it's being
  • 00:16:09.581 --> 00:16:10.816
  • Suddenly as it's being poured out,
  • 00:16:10.883 --> 00:16:11.884
  • Poured out, suddenly god begins to turn
  • 00:16:11.950 --> 00:16:14.720
  • Suddenly god begins to turn weakness into power
  • 00:16:14.787 --> 00:16:16.655
  • Weakness into power and god begins to turn
  • 00:16:16.722 --> 00:16:17.856
  • And god begins to turn worthlessness into something
  • 00:16:17.923 --> 00:16:20.626
  • Worthlessness into something extremely costly.
  • 00:16:20.692 --> 00:16:26.298
  • Extremely costly. everybody say,
  • 00:16:26.365 --> 00:16:26.899
  • Everybody say, "the power of his presence."
  • 00:16:26.965 --> 00:16:29.701
  • "the power of his presence." how long has it been since
  • 00:16:29.768 --> 00:16:31.303
  • How long has it been since you've been in his presence?
  • 00:16:31.370 --> 00:16:33.405
  • You've been in his presence? not church, not another service,
  • 00:16:33.472 --> 00:16:35.574
  • Not church, not another service, not another alter call,
  • 00:16:35.641 --> 00:16:36.975
  • Not another alter call, not another "raise your hands,
  • 00:16:37.042 --> 00:16:38.744
  • Not another "raise your hands, praise the lord, clap,
  • 00:16:38.811 --> 00:16:39.878
  • Praise the lord, clap, happy clap, bye,
  • 00:16:39.945 --> 00:16:41.213
  • Happy clap, bye, see you next week."
  • 00:16:41.280 --> 00:16:43.148
  • See you next week." when was the last time you
  • 00:16:43.215 --> 00:16:45.417
  • When was the last time you left church saying i'll never
  • 00:16:45.484 --> 00:16:48.120
  • Left church saying i'll never be the same again?
  • 00:16:48.187 --> 00:16:51.790
  • Be the same again? i'll never be the same again.
  • 00:16:51.857 --> 00:16:53.859
  • And as they poured it --
  • 00:17:00.099 --> 00:17:04.269
  • And as they poured it -- you can't evolve into what
  • 00:17:04.336 --> 00:17:05.537
  • You can't evolve into what god wants you to be,
  • 00:17:05.604 --> 00:17:06.905
  • God wants you to be, it only comes from being
  • 00:17:06.972 --> 00:17:08.207
  • It only comes from being in his presence.
  • 00:17:08.273 --> 00:17:13.245
  • In his presence. and as they poured it, jesus
  • 00:17:13.312 --> 00:17:16.715
  • And as they poured it, jesus said serve it to the governor.
  • 00:17:16.782 --> 00:17:19.718
  • Said serve it to the governor. the guy who has everything.
  • 00:17:19.785 --> 00:17:21.854
  • The guy who has everything. and he had a preconceived idea
  • 00:17:21.920 --> 00:17:23.989
  • And he had a preconceived idea that what they were offering him
  • 00:17:24.056 --> 00:17:25.924
  • That what they were offering him was inferior because he said
  • 00:17:25.991 --> 00:17:27.659
  • Was inferior because he said i really don't want
  • 00:17:27.726 --> 00:17:29.094
  • I really don't want to drink this trash.
  • 00:17:29.161 --> 00:17:30.262
  • To drink this trash. because what i've got,
  • 00:17:30.329 --> 00:17:31.663
  • Because what i've got, what i can afford
  • 00:17:31.730 --> 00:17:32.965
  • What i can afford and the life that i have
  • 00:17:33.031 --> 00:17:34.566
  • And the life that i have compared to what pitiful
  • 00:17:34.633 --> 00:17:36.001
  • Compared to what pitiful little, what's his name?
  • 00:17:36.068 --> 00:17:37.503
  • Little, what's his name? jesus?
  • 00:17:37.569 --> 00:17:38.437
  • Jesus? i never heard of him.
  • 00:17:38.504 --> 00:17:39.505
  • I never heard of him. but anyhow, whatever little
  • 00:17:39.571 --> 00:17:41.039
  • But anyhow, whatever little blessing he put on there.
  • 00:17:41.106 --> 00:17:42.508
  • Blessing he put on there. you're offering me that compared
  • 00:17:42.574 --> 00:17:44.209
  • You're offering me that compared to my power and my position?
  • 00:17:44.276 --> 00:17:45.878
  • To my power and my position? have you seen my house?
  • 00:17:45.944 --> 00:17:47.045
  • Have you seen my house? have you seen the car
  • 00:17:47.112 --> 00:17:48.147
  • Have you seen the car i rolled up in?
  • 00:17:48.213 --> 00:17:49.181
  • I rolled up in? do you know what kind of rims?
  • 00:17:49.248 --> 00:17:50.849
  • Do you know what kind of rims? do you know?
  • 00:17:50.916 --> 00:17:51.984
  • Do you know? do you know the boat?
  • 00:17:52.050 --> 00:17:53.452
  • Do you know the boat? do you know the lifestyle
  • 00:17:53.519 --> 00:17:54.920
  • Do you know the lifestyle i live, and you dare --
  • 00:17:54.987 --> 00:17:56.655
  • I live, and you dare -- i'm not used to this
  • 00:17:56.722 --> 00:17:57.422
  • I'm not used to this cheap trash stuff,
  • 00:17:57.489 --> 00:17:58.991
  • Cheap trash stuff, but i guess i'll give it a sip.
  • 00:17:59.057 --> 00:18:04.429
  • But i guess i'll give it a sip. and here's the big point.
  • 00:18:04.496 --> 00:18:10.636
  • And here's the big point. how do you explain

  • Out because all things work together for my good.
  • 00:19:53.538 --> 00:19:59.378
  • Together for my good. i'm almost done.
  • 00:19:59.444 --> 00:20:02.014
  • I'm almost done. the governor said, my goodness.
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:05.417
  • The governor said, my goodness. he said, most people serve
  • 00:20:05.484 --> 00:20:06.451
  • He said, most people serve the best first
  • 00:20:06.518 --> 00:20:07.252
  • The best first and then the cheap stuff,
  • 00:20:07.319 --> 00:20:10.155
  • And then the cheap stuff, but you saved the best for last.
  • 00:20:10.222 --> 00:20:13.825
  • But you saved the best for last. then jesus turns
  • 00:20:13.892 --> 00:20:15.060
  • Then jesus turns and he says to his disciples,
  • 00:20:15.127 --> 00:20:18.630
  • And he says to his disciples, i want you to go to jerusalem.
  • 00:20:18.697 --> 00:20:21.566
