  • - I'm preaching this morning
  • 00:00:20.667 --> 00:00:23.670
  • - I'm preaching this morningfrom Psalms 133,
  • 00:00:23.670 --> 00:00:25.371
  • from Psalms 133,"Behold, how good
  • 00:00:25.371 --> 00:00:27.307
  • "Behold, how goodand how pleasant it is
  • 00:00:27.307 --> 00:00:33.379
  • and how pleasant it isfor people to dwell together..."
  • 00:00:33.379 --> 00:00:34.481
  • for people to dwell together..."You know, you can dwell
  • 00:00:34.481 --> 00:00:37.717
  • You know, you can dwelland not be together.
  • 00:00:37.717 --> 00:00:39.752
  • and not be together.But to dwell together.
  • 00:00:39.752 --> 00:00:42.255
  • But to dwell together.Marriage and family.
  • 00:00:42.255 --> 00:00:44.824
  • Marriage and family.In church.
  • 00:00:44.824 --> 00:00:47.393
  • In church.On your job.
  • 00:00:47.393 --> 00:00:51.998
  • On your job.Dwell together in unity.
  • 00:00:51.998 --> 00:00:52.832
  • Dwell together in unity.The last prayer Jesus
  • 00:00:52.832 --> 00:00:55.502
  • The last prayer Jesusprayed in John 17 -
  • 00:00:55.502 --> 00:00:58.138
  • prayed in John 17 -He prayed it five times
  • 00:00:58.138 --> 00:00:59.005
  • He prayed it five timesin one chapter,
  • 00:00:59.005 --> 00:01:00.173
  • in one chapter,the same prayer request.
  • 00:01:00.173 --> 00:01:00.840
  • the same prayer request.Make them one.
  • 00:01:00.840 --> 00:01:01.407
  • Make them one.Make them one.
  • 00:01:01.407 --> 00:01:04.911
  • Make them one.Unity is a big deal.
  • 00:01:04.911 --> 00:01:06.913
  • Unity is a big deal.If the devil can divide us,
  • 00:01:06.913 --> 00:01:09.849
  • If the devil can divide us,he can conquer us.
  • 00:01:09.849 --> 00:01:11.885
  • he can conquer us.And then it says in verse 2
  • 00:01:11.885 --> 00:01:14.254
  • And then it says in verse 2of the precious oil
  • 00:01:14.254 --> 00:01:15.054
  • of the precious oilupon the head,
  • 00:01:15.054 --> 00:01:17.423
  • upon the head,running down the beard,
  • 00:01:17.423 --> 00:01:18.258
  • running down the beard,the beard of Aaron,
  • 00:01:18.258 --> 00:01:19.492
  • the beard of Aaron,running down the edge
  • 00:01:19.492 --> 00:01:20.994
  • running down the edgeof the garments.
  • 00:01:20.994 --> 00:01:21.828
  • of the garments.He's saying the anointing
  • 00:01:21.828 --> 00:01:24.197
  • He's saying the anointingis attracted to unity.
  • 00:01:24.197 --> 00:01:24.797
  • is attracted to unity.And then he says
  • 00:01:24.797 --> 00:01:26.099
  • And then he sayssomething profound.
  • 00:01:26.099 --> 00:01:26.733
  • something profound.It descended upon
  • 00:01:26.733 --> 00:01:28.168
  • It descended uponthe mountains of Zion.
  • 00:01:28.168 --> 00:01:29.335
  • the mountains of Zion.For the Lord -
  • 00:01:29.335 --> 00:01:31.070

  • Not My Father.I'm not praying for me.
  • 00:04:15.168 --> 00:04:15.935
  • I'm not praying for me.But He said the way
  • 00:04:15.935 --> 00:04:17.303
  • But He said the waythat you begin prayer
  • 00:04:17.303 --> 00:04:20.340
  • that you begin prayeris praying "our."
  • 00:04:20.340 --> 00:04:20.940

  • It's not about me and my.That's the hour of power.
  • 00:04:26.145 --> 00:04:28.614
  • That's the hour of power.Not H, O, U, R, but O, U, R.
  • 00:04:28.614 --> 00:04:29.582
  • Not H, O, U, R, but O, U, R.When you begin to pray
  • 00:04:29.582 --> 00:04:30.450
  • When you begin to prayfor others.
  • 00:04:30.450 --> 00:04:31.417
  • for others.When you begin to pray
  • 00:04:31.417 --> 00:04:33.019

  • in the church,and in your family.
  • 00:04:38.024 --> 00:04:38.458
  • and in your family.When you begin
  • 00:04:38.458 --> 00:04:40.226
  • When you beginto pray for others,
  • 00:04:40.226 --> 00:04:42.395
  • to pray for others,God says pray one for another,

  • God says pray one for another,that you may be healed.
  • 00:04:45.598 --> 00:04:48.101
  • that you may be healed.And so the most powerful prayer
  • 00:04:48.101 --> 00:04:53.973
  • And so the most powerful prayeris when we pray "Our Father."
  • 00:04:53.973 --> 00:04:54.974
  • is when we pray "Our Father."Peter and John went up
  • 00:04:54.974 --> 00:04:56.909
  • Peter and John went upto the temple together
  • 00:04:56.909 --> 00:04:58.211
  • to the temple togetherat the hour of prayer
  • 00:04:58.211 --> 00:05:00.747
  • at the hour of prayerand performed a miracle
  • 00:05:00.747 --> 00:05:01.414
  • and performed a miraclewhere the lame man
  • 00:05:01.414 --> 00:05:03.649
  • where the lame manwas begging.
  • 00:05:03.649 --> 00:05:05.251
  • was begging.But they were together,
  • 00:05:05.251 --> 00:05:07.754
  • But they were together,and they went to pray.
  • 00:05:07.754 --> 00:05:08.688
  • and they went to pray.When you understand
  • 00:05:08.688 --> 00:05:10.456
  • When you understandhow important it is
  • 00:05:10.456 --> 00:05:12.291
  • how important it isto not be that person
  • 00:05:12.291 --> 00:05:14.527
  • to not be that personwho's about me and my -
  • 00:05:14.527 --> 00:05:16.429
  • who's about me and my -as for me and my,
  • 00:05:16.429 --> 00:05:19.098
  • as for me and my,all I care about is me and my.
  • 00:05:19.098 --> 00:05:20.600
  • all I care about is me and my.But you begin to understand
  • 00:05:20.600 --> 00:05:22.702
  • But you begin to understandit's about we.
  • 00:05:22.702 --> 00:05:23.870
  • it's about we.And the real strategy
  • 00:05:23.870 --> 00:05:25.838
  • And the real strategyof hell has never changed.
  • 00:05:25.838 --> 00:05:28.374
  • of hell has never changed.Divide and conquer.
  • 00:05:28.374 --> 00:05:30.143
  • Divide and conquer.Just break things up
  • 00:05:30.143 --> 00:05:31.377
  • Just break things upto where it's all about me
  • 00:05:31.377 --> 00:05:34.113
  • to where it's all about meand my and forget about we.
  • 00:05:34.113 --> 00:05:35.681
  • and my and forget about we.And there the blessing
  • 00:05:35.681 --> 00:05:37.350
  • And there the blessingis withdrawn.
  • 00:05:37.350 --> 00:05:39.152
  • is withdrawn.The anointing is withdrawn
  • 00:05:39.152 --> 00:05:41.587
  • The anointing is withdrawnbecause the power of unity
  • 00:05:41.587 --> 00:05:42.522
  • because the power of unityis one of -
  • 00:05:42.522 --> 00:05:43.356
  • is one of -that's why Jesus said
  • 00:05:43.356 --> 00:05:45.691
  • that's why Jesus saidfive times in the last prayer
  • 00:05:45.691 --> 00:05:46.993
  • five times in the last prayermeeting He would ever have
  • 00:05:46.993 --> 00:05:48.127
  • meeting He would ever haveon planet earth.
  • 00:05:48.127 --> 00:05:49.462
  • on planet earth.Now He's interceded in Heaven,
  • 00:05:49.462 --> 00:05:51.264
  • Now He's interceded in Heaven,but His last prayer
  • 00:05:51.264 --> 00:05:52.532
  • but His last prayerrequest was, "Father,
  • 00:05:52.532 --> 00:05:57.270
  • request was, "Father,make them one."
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:05:57.870
  • make them one."Do you understand
  • 00:05:57.870 --> 00:06:00.306
  • Do you understandthat it's a unified response
  • 00:06:00.306 --> 00:06:01.874
  • that it's a unified responseto the moving of the spirit
  • 00:06:01.874 --> 00:06:04.444
  • to the moving of the spiritthat God looks for?
  • 00:06:04.444 --> 00:06:06.379
  • that God looks for?We must be more than me and my.
  • 00:06:06.379 --> 00:06:08.981
  • We must be more than me and my.It must become a we.
