  • agree with that.I think your response
  • 00:00:47.416 --> 00:00:49.318
  • I think your responseto the preaching of the word
  • 00:00:49.318 --> 00:00:50.853
  • to the preaching of the wordis the most important thing.
  • 00:00:50.853 --> 00:00:52.588

  • Because they made roomfor a miracle.
  • 00:02:43.332 --> 00:02:45.767

  • 00:02:45.767 --> 00:02:47.302
  • In Luke 18:37,notice a pattern,
  • 00:02:47.302 --> 00:02:48.337
  • notice a pattern,blind Bartimaeus
  • 00:02:48.337 --> 00:02:50.239
  • blind Bartimaeuswas told by someone,
  • 00:02:50.239 --> 00:02:53.609
  • was told by someone,"Jesus is passing by."

  • "Jesus is passing by."See it.
  • 00:02:55.444 --> 00:02:57.846
  • See it.Luke 19:1, Jesus entered
  • 00:02:57.846 --> 00:03:00.682
  • Luke 19:1, Jesus enteredand passed through.
  • 00:03:00.682 --> 00:03:03.485
  • and passed through.He was passing through Jericho.
  • 00:03:03.485 --> 00:03:05.187
  • He was passing through Jericho.In Mark 6:40,
  • 00:03:05.187 --> 00:03:06.388

  • 00:03:09.191 --> 00:03:10.459
  • The winds are raging.And the Bible said
  • 00:03:10.459 --> 00:03:12.294
  • And the Bible saidthe disciples are in the boat.

  • on the sea.Listen to the words though.
  • 00:03:21.470 --> 00:03:23.572
  • Listen to the words though.This is mind-boggling.
  • 00:03:23.572 --> 00:03:28.744
  • This is mind-boggling."And would have passed them by."

  • "And would have passed them by."He would have passed them by.
  • 00:03:31.380 --> 00:03:34.016

  • Highlight those four verses,the verses that I just read.
  • 00:03:35.951 --> 00:03:37.786
  • the verses that I just read.And one says He's passing by,
  • 00:03:37.786 --> 00:03:39.921

  • one says He wouldhave passed them by,
  • 00:03:43.058 --> 00:03:45.193
  • have passed them by,and the 2 Kings said
  • 00:03:45.193 --> 00:03:48.163
  • and the 2 Kings saidthat he's passing by continually
  • 00:03:48.163 --> 00:03:50.766
  • that he's passing by continuallyon a regular basis.
  • 00:03:50.766 --> 00:03:52.067
  • on a regular basis.But it's not enough to know
  • 00:03:52.067 --> 00:03:53.302
  • But it's not enough to knowthat the Spirit of God
  • 00:03:53.302 --> 00:03:56.938
  • that the Spirit of Godis here today because He is.

  • 00:04:08.183 --> 00:04:09.718
  • it's possible for God to pass byand it not benefit us
  • 00:04:09.718 --> 00:04:12.287
  • and it not benefit usif we don't make room
  • 00:04:12.287 --> 00:04:15.290
  • if we don't make roomfor His presence.
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:17.392
  • for His presence.The Bible opens by telling us
  • 00:04:17.392 --> 00:04:18.093
  • The Bible opens by telling ussomething about
  • 00:04:18.093 --> 00:04:19.161

  • the Holy Spirit.Early in the book of Genesis,
  • 00:04:22.631 --> 00:04:25.434
  • Early in the book of Genesis,it says, "And the Spirit of God
  • 00:04:25.434 --> 00:04:27.502
  • it says, "And the Spirit of Godmoved upon the face
  • 00:04:27.502 --> 00:04:29.471
  • moved upon the faceof the waters."
  • 00:04:29.471 --> 00:04:30.605
  • of the waters."Notice that the Spirit of God
  • 00:04:30.605 --> 00:04:32.240
  • Notice that the Spirit of Godis moving.
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:33.141

  • The Holy Spirit is not a pond.He's not a swamp.
  • 00:04:40.182 --> 00:04:41.917
  • He's not a swamp.He's likened in the scriptures
  • 00:04:41.917 --> 00:04:44.319
  • He's likened in the scripturesas a river
  • 00:04:44.319 --> 00:04:47.756
  • as a riverthat's constantly moving.
  • 00:04:47.756 --> 00:04:48.790
  • that's constantly moving.The river is moving,

  • It's not an issueof whether or not He's here.
  • 00:05:13.915 --> 00:05:15.016

  • The question is,will it do you any good?
  • 00:05:17.753 --> 00:05:18.887
  • will it do you any good?And we have the power

  • And we have the powerto stop the passing by,
  • 00:05:21.523 --> 00:05:25.494
  • to stop the passing by,to make Him stand still.
  • 00:05:25.494 --> 00:05:27.262

  • but he saw a treeand climbed up in the tree,
  • 00:07:11.166 --> 00:07:12.834
  • and climbed up in the tree,because he was so short
  • 00:07:12.834 --> 00:07:14.936
  • because he was so shortin stature that he was afraid
  • 00:07:14.936 --> 00:07:16.605
