  • 00:07:03.703 --> 00:07:04.904
  • It's kind of confusingunless you understand
  • 00:07:04.904 --> 00:07:06.706
  • unless you understandthe spiritual implication,
  • 00:07:06.706 --> 00:07:07.974

  • 00:07:07.974 --> 00:07:08.674
  • and here it is.You're gonna get it.

  • You're gonna get it.I promise.
  • 00:07:10.476 --> 00:07:12.745
  • I promise.In Matthew 13:38,
  • 00:07:12.745 --> 00:07:13.913
  • In Matthew 13:38,Jesus said in one
  • 00:07:13.913 --> 00:07:14.780
  • Jesus said in oneof His parables,
  • 00:07:14.780 --> 00:07:18.050
  • of His parables,that the field is the world
  • 00:07:18.050 --> 00:07:21.454
  • that the field is the worldand in Hebrews 12:22 it says,
  • 00:07:21.454 --> 00:07:22.088
  • and in Hebrews 12:22 it says,"But you have come
  • 00:07:22.088 --> 00:07:23.289
  • "But you have cometo Mount Zion.
  • 00:07:23.289 --> 00:07:24.657
  • to Mount Zion.You're in the city
  • 00:07:24.657 --> 00:07:28.027
  • You're in the cityof the living God."
  • 00:07:28.027 --> 00:07:29.362
  • of the living God."So, the point is simply this
  • 00:07:29.362 --> 00:07:31.564
  • So, the point is simply thisthat once you come into the city
  • 00:07:31.564 --> 00:07:33.232
  • that once you come into the cityor the Kingdom of God,
  • 00:07:33.232 --> 00:07:35.801
  • or the Kingdom of God,once you enter into Christ,
  • 00:07:35.801 --> 00:07:37.036
  • once you enter into Christ,we're in the city
  • 00:07:37.036 --> 00:07:38.271
  • we're in the cityof the living God.
  • 00:07:38.271 --> 00:07:39.872
  • of the living God.We're not out in the field
  • 00:07:39.872 --> 00:07:41.207
  • We're not out in the fieldbecause Jesus said the field
  • 00:07:41.207 --> 00:07:42.475
  • because Jesus said the fieldrepresents the world,
  • 00:07:42.475 --> 00:07:44.143
  • represents the world,but the city represents
  • 00:07:44.143 --> 00:07:46.312
  • but the city representsthe city of the living God.
  • 00:07:46.312 --> 00:07:47.380
  • the city of the living God.Once you're in the church,
  • 00:07:47.380 --> 00:07:50.283
  • Once you're in the church,notice that the same attack
  • 00:07:50.283 --> 00:07:51.851
  • notice that the same attackcame on the woman
  • 00:07:51.851 --> 00:07:53.386
  • came on the womanthat was in the city

  • that was in the fieldor the world.
  • 00:07:59.292 --> 00:08:00.960
  • or the world.Just because you're in church
  • 00:08:00.960 --> 00:08:01.761
  • Just because you're in churchand just because
  • 00:08:01.761 --> 00:08:03.062
  • and just becauseyou're serving God
  • 00:08:03.062 --> 00:08:03.996
  • you're serving Goddoes not mean
  • 00:08:03.996 --> 00:08:06.566
  • does not meanthat we don't have an enemy
  • 00:08:06.566 --> 00:08:08.901
  • that we don't have an enemywho hates us and who attacks us
  • 00:08:08.901 --> 00:08:11.237

  • in the fieldwhich really
  • 00:08:18.411 --> 00:08:20.079
  • which reallyis an important lesson.
  • 00:08:20.079 --> 00:08:21.480
  • is an important lesson.Just because you're attacked
  • 00:08:21.480 --> 00:08:22.782
  • Just because you're attackedin the city doesn't mean
  • 00:08:22.782 --> 00:08:24.016
