  • From Genesis to Revelation,if you're looking for
  • 00:00:39.755 --> 00:00:41.690
  • what would be acommon denominator
  • 00:00:41.723 --> 00:00:44.526
  • of a calling,well, it is when God
  • 00:00:44.560 --> 00:00:46.728
  • appoints a mortal--theimmortal invisible appoints
  • 00:00:46.762 --> 00:00:50.432
  • a mortal to makesomething about him visible.
  • 00:00:50.466 --> 00:00:54.403
  • Number two, calling--I'm makingup a word,
  • 00:00:54.436 --> 00:00:57.539
  • and I'm happy about it.
  • 00:00:57.573 --> 00:01:01.143
  • Calling consists of followshipfed by fellowship.
  • 00:01:01.176 --> 00:01:05.914
  • This is based on 1 Corinthians1:9, that says,
  • 00:01:05.948 --> 00:01:08.450
  • "God is faithful."
  • 00:01:08.484 --> 00:01:10.853
  • You were called by himinto fellowship with his son.
  • 00:01:10.886 --> 00:01:14.957
  • This is success.
  • 00:01:14.990 --> 00:01:16.758
  • Followship fed by fellowship.
  • 00:01:16.792 --> 00:01:18.260
  • This is how your lifeis a success,
  • 00:01:18.293 --> 00:01:20.829
  • it's how my life is a success.
  • 00:01:20.863 --> 00:01:22.798
  • It's not based on numbers;it's not based on results
  • 00:01:22.831 --> 00:01:26.768
  • that we can see.
  • 00:01:26.802 --> 00:01:28.570
  • It is based on did we,to the degree that we knew how,
  • 00:01:28.604 --> 00:01:32.808
  • did we follow the leadershipof Christ?
  • 00:01:32.841 --> 00:01:36.612
  • Did we follow him,and did we fellowship with him?
  • 00:01:36.645 --> 00:01:39.982
  • Those are all biggest guaranteesthat we will not miss
  • 00:01:40.015 --> 00:01:44.286
  • the specific areas of directionin our personal lives,
  • 00:01:44.319 --> 00:01:48.757
  • if we just havefellowship with him.
  • 00:01:48.790 --> 00:01:50.592
  • So we have the sensewhen he is leading us
  • 00:01:50.626 --> 00:01:52.861
  • to the right or to the left,that when we're led
  • 00:01:52.895 --> 00:01:55.364
  • by his Spirit--rememberRomans chapter 8.
  • 00:01:55.397 --> 00:01:58.700
  • "His spirit is the Spiritof Christ,"
  • 00:01:58.734 --> 00:02:02.104
  • so same one who was leading us.
  • 00:02:02.137 --> 00:02:04.840
  • Christ said in his physical bodyof flesh and blood,
  • 00:02:04.873 --> 00:02:09.111
  • "Come follow me."
  • 00:02:09.144 --> 00:02:10.479
  • He still says the same thing,but he leads us
  • 00:02:10.512 --> 00:02:14.016
  • through his Spirit.
  • 00:02:14.049 --> 00:02:15.884
  • Calling consists of followshipfed by fellowship.
  • 00:02:15.918 --> 00:02:18.854
  • Number three is this,
  • 00:02:18.887 --> 00:02:20.489
  • we cannot goif we will not leave.
  • 00:02:20.522 --> 00:02:23.559
  • That okay, one reasonwhy I'm not going
  • 00:02:23.592 --> 00:02:26.528
  • is 'cause I ain't leaving.
  • 00:02:26.562 --> 00:02:29.031
  • And again, it may or may not bea physical departure,
  • 00:02:29.064 --> 00:02:33.902
  • but it has to be of allegiance,
  • 00:02:33.936 --> 00:02:37.406
  • or we are going to follow theminstead of Christ Jesus
  • 00:02:37.439 --> 00:02:42.644
  • in his directionfor our personal lives.
  • 00:02:42.678 --> 00:02:45.180
  • And so here's what I want to sayto you
  • 00:02:45.214 --> 00:02:46.982
  • as we're talking about calling.
  • 00:02:47.015 --> 00:02:49.551
  • We're learning that ourallegiances will be tested,
  • 00:02:49.585 --> 00:02:52.521
  • our mentors, our mothers,our Aunt Marge,
  • 00:02:52.554 --> 00:02:55.991
  • we are learningthat he's going to test
  • 00:02:56.024 --> 00:02:57.759
  • our allegiancesto our people group,
  • 00:02:57.793 --> 00:03:02.064
  • to our denomination perhaps,mothers and fathers,
  • 00:03:02.097 --> 00:03:06.401
  • that he's looking for,"You follow me.
  • 00:03:06.435 --> 00:03:08.136
  • "I'm the best thingthat ever happened to you
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:10.639
  • "and I will the bestthing that ever happened to them
  • 00:03:10.672 --> 00:03:14.042
  • "in relationship to you,ultimately.
  • 00:03:14.076 --> 00:03:17.279
  • "They may notrecognize it for a while.
  • 00:03:17.312 --> 00:03:19.381
  • Ultimately, is the best thingthat ever happened to you."
  • 00:03:19.414 --> 00:03:22.784
  • Now, I'm going to talk to you,of course,
  • 00:03:22.818 --> 00:03:25.587
  • about call, call, over again.
  • 00:03:25.621 --> 00:03:28.090
  • Call.
  • 00:03:28.123 --> 00:03:29.558
  • We're talking about all of uscoming to a place
  • 00:03:29.591 --> 00:03:32.194
  • that we either have an arrivalor revival of a sense of awe
  • 00:03:32.227 --> 00:03:37.432
  • over our calling,
  • 00:03:37.466 --> 00:03:39.001
  • that we'd have either anawakening or a reawakening.
  • 00:03:39.034 --> 00:03:43.939
  • And I want to say a coupleof things to you,
  • 00:03:43.972 --> 00:03:45.974
  • thinking in termsof the metaphor of the phone.
  • 00:03:46.008 --> 00:03:50.345
  • You may have Godon call waiting,
  • 00:03:50.379 --> 00:03:54.483
  • you may be on a call with him
  • 00:03:54.516 --> 00:03:59.221
  • but most of the timeyou have him muted.
  • 00:03:59.254 --> 00:04:02.024
  • Anybody?
  • 00:04:02.057 --> 00:04:03.825
  • You ever just like justmute him.
  • 00:04:03.859 --> 00:04:06.028
  • Just mute him.
  • 00:04:06.061 --> 00:04:07.729
  • You may have an unanswered call.
  • 00:04:07.763 --> 00:04:10.899
  • You may have even gotten so madat him
  • 00:04:10.932 --> 00:04:13.268
  • that you have hung up on him,
  • 00:04:13.302 --> 00:04:16.104
  • but he has not yethung up on you.
  • 00:04:16.138 --> 00:04:19.241
  • He's still on the line.
  • 00:04:19.274 --> 00:04:21.243
  • What you do not have, I needsomebody to hear me clearly.
  • 00:04:21.276 --> 00:04:24.313
  • What you do not have if youare in Christ is a dropped call.
  • 00:04:24.346 --> 00:04:28.517
  • I need somebody to hear mesay that today.
  • 00:04:28.550 --> 00:04:30.619
  • What you do not--you mayhave a muted call,
  • 00:04:30.652 --> 00:04:34.723
  • you may be puttingoff answering your call,
  • 00:04:34.756 --> 00:04:38.727
  • you can have all sortsof things going on there,
  • 00:04:38.760 --> 00:04:41.096
  • but you do not havea dropped call.
  • 00:04:41.129 --> 00:04:43.098
  • And I can tell you that basedon Romans 11:29,
  • 00:04:43.131 --> 00:04:45.901
  • "that the gifts and callingof God are irrevocable."
  • 00:04:45.934 --> 00:04:49.404
  • You think, some of you,like I thought in my life
  • 00:04:49.438 --> 00:04:53.275
  • that you have sinnedso grievously
  • 00:04:53.308 --> 00:04:55.977
  • that your power to sinis more powerful
  • 00:04:56.011 --> 00:05:01.016
  • than his power to saveand sustain.
  • 00:05:01.049 --> 00:05:05.620
  • You still think you hadsomething to do
  • 00:05:05.654 --> 00:05:08.390
  • with him saving youbecause you think
  • 00:05:08.423 --> 00:05:10.859
  • you can make him get ridof you, and you can't.
  • 00:05:10.892 --> 00:05:15.163
  • And I don't know if anybodyin the room is glad
  • 00:05:15.197 --> 00:05:17.466
  • you cannot have a droppedcall but I am.
  • 00:05:17.499 --> 00:05:21.169
  • I am.
  • 00:05:21.203 --> 00:05:22.838
  • It may look differenton the other side,
  • 00:05:22.871 --> 00:05:24.673
  • but it often does.
  • 00:05:24.706 --> 00:05:26.975
  • You do not have a droppedcall and you need to know it.
  • 00:05:27.008 --> 00:05:29.978
  • Now let me tell youwhat we're going to be doing
  • 00:05:30.011 --> 00:05:32.314
  • during the restof this teaching time.
  • 00:05:32.347 --> 00:05:35.984
  • What we're goingto be thinking about,
  • 00:05:36.017 --> 00:05:37.619
  • we have that on your mindthat our calling consists
  • 00:05:37.652 --> 00:05:43.258
  • of followship fedby fellowship,
  • 00:05:43.291 --> 00:05:46.161
  • that we're going to leaveour allegiances,
  • 00:05:46.194 --> 00:05:49.998
  • spiritually speakingand we're going to follow Jesus.
  • 00:05:50.031 --> 00:05:52.768
  • But there are thingsthat can trip us up,
  • 00:05:52.801 --> 00:05:55.737
  • and it's important for usto establish these
  • 00:05:55.771 --> 00:05:58.373
  • so that you know themwhen they're happening,
  • 00:05:58.407 --> 00:06:00.442
  • and so that you can acknowledge,you know,
  • 00:06:00.475 --> 00:06:01.943
  • these are the things that canreally trip you up
  • 00:06:01.977 --> 00:06:03.879
  • in your followship,and in your calling with Christ.
  • 00:06:03.912 --> 00:06:07.115
  • I already know them in advanceso that when they happen,
  • 00:06:07.149 --> 00:06:10.852
  • I'm aware of them.
  • 00:06:10.886 --> 00:06:12.387
  • So what we're going to do,is we're going to have
  • 00:06:12.421 --> 00:06:14.055
  • an a, b, c and d,in these next minutes,
  • 00:06:14.089 --> 00:06:18.360
  • of things that can reallytrip us up in our calling.
  • 00:06:18.393 --> 00:06:23.131
  • So I want you to go with mefirst of all
  • 00:06:23.165 --> 00:06:26.067
  • to Judges chapter 15.
  • 00:06:26.101 --> 00:06:27.436
  • Now, I just want you to hold itopen for a minute,
  • 00:06:27.469 --> 00:06:29.604
  • but I would draw your attention,this is the saga of Sampson.
  • 00:06:29.638 --> 00:06:34.276
  • The saga of Sampson.
  • 00:06:34.309 --> 00:06:37.879
  • And you see,three different times
  • 00:06:37.913 --> 00:06:40.849
  • when it says specificallythat the Spirit of the Lord
  • 00:06:40.882 --> 00:06:45.020
  • rushed upon Samson.
  • 00:06:45.053 --> 00:06:47.122
  • 14:6, "The Spirit of the Lordrushed upon him,
  • 00:06:47.155 --> 00:06:49.825
  • "and although he had nothingin his hand,
  • 00:06:49.858 --> 00:06:51.560
  • he tore a lion in piecesas one would tear a young goat."
  • 00:06:51.593 --> 00:06:56.064
  • 14:19, "And the Spirit ofthe Lord rushed upon him,
  • 00:06:56.097 --> 00:06:59.367
  • "and he went down,
  • 00:06:59.401 --> 00:07:00.769
  • "and he struck down 30 menin the town
  • 00:07:00.802 --> 00:07:02.571
  • and took their spoils."
  • 00:07:02.604 --> 00:07:04.306
  • Judges 15:14,"Then when he came to Lehi,
  • 00:07:04.339 --> 00:07:06.908
  • "the Philistines cameshouting to meet him.
  • 00:07:06.942 --> 00:07:10.245
  • "Then the Spirit of the Lordrushed upon him,
  • 00:07:10.278 --> 00:07:12.914
  • "and the ropesthat were on his arms
  • 00:07:12.948 --> 00:07:14.382
  • "became as flaxthat has caught fire,
  • 00:07:14.416 --> 00:07:16.351
  • and his bonds meltedoff his hands."
  • 00:07:16.384 --> 00:07:18.186
  • You see, what I want to presentto you
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:20.355
  • based on what happenedis that Samson was in it
  • 00:07:20.388 --> 00:07:24.860
  • for the rush.
  • 00:07:24.893 --> 00:07:26.895
  • Oh, God had called him,all right,
  • 00:07:26.928 --> 00:07:29.364
  • and God had empowered him.
  • 00:07:29.397 --> 00:07:30.699
  • Now, listen carefully,the Holy Spirit worked
  • 00:07:30.732 --> 00:07:32.934
  • in a different way, verypurposely in the Old Testament
  • 00:07:32.968 --> 00:07:36.638
  • under the old covenant.
  • 00:07:36.671 --> 00:07:38.540
  • There are probably somewherearound,
  • 00:07:38.573 --> 00:07:40.308
  • roughly around 100 peoplein the Old Testament,
  • 00:07:40.342 --> 00:07:43.979
  • 70 at one time,so it doesn't leave many
  • 00:07:44.012 --> 00:07:46.548
  • of the rest of 'em that wouldbe--that would have had
  • 00:07:46.581 --> 00:07:50.752
  • this kind of experience.
  • 00:07:50.785 --> 00:07:52.087
  • The Holy Spirit would come uponsomeone to empower them
  • 00:07:52.120 --> 00:07:57.359
  • for a particular taskor to empower them
  • 00:07:57.392 --> 00:08:00.795
  • for a particular anointing,so he could come and go.
  • 00:08:00.829 --> 00:08:06.134
  • That changed completelyunder the new covenant.
  • 00:08:06.167 --> 00:08:09.037
  • Why?
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.472
  • Because what Christ did,there's this wonderful part
  • 00:08:10.505 --> 00:08:12.741
  • in the farewell discoursein John's Gospel,
  • 00:08:12.774 --> 00:08:15.644
  • where he talks and then he said,
  • 00:08:15.677 --> 00:08:16.978
  • "Listen, it is needful for you,"John 16, verse 7,
  • 00:08:17.012 --> 00:08:20.815
  • "it is needful for you that I goaway because if I go away,"
  • 00:08:20.849 --> 00:08:24.052
  • and he's talking about givinghis life on the cross
  • 00:08:24.085 --> 00:08:26.221
  • and then he's talking aboutascending to his father.
  • 00:08:26.254 --> 00:08:28.390
  • "Because if I go away,I will send my Spirit to you
  • 00:08:28.423 --> 00:08:32.327
  • but if I don't, I can't."
  • 00:08:32.360 --> 00:08:33.962
  • And the essence of it was,"Listen, right now,
  • 00:08:33.995 --> 00:08:35.931
  • "I'm walking with you,and to tell you the truth,
  • 00:08:35.964 --> 00:08:38.833
  • you're a train wreck."
  • 00:08:38.867 --> 00:08:41.937
  • If you want to seethe big difference
  • 00:08:41.970 --> 00:08:43.271
  • between impetuous Peterin the gospels before and after,
  • 00:08:43.305 --> 00:08:49.978
  • the differencewas the Holy Spirit
  • 00:08:50.011 --> 00:08:51.813
  • taking up residence in himbecause he's going like,
  • 00:08:51.846 --> 00:08:54.049
  • "I've walked beside youbut in this way,
  • 00:08:54.082 --> 00:08:57.018
  • my Spirit will be insideof you."
  • 00:08:57.052 --> 00:08:59.988
  • So everything changesunder the new covenant
  • 00:09:00.021 --> 00:09:03.558
  • because when he pours outhis Spirit in Acts chapter 2,
  • 00:09:03.592 --> 00:09:06.428
  • then is why it's so imperativeto understand
  • 00:09:06.461 --> 00:09:09.831
  • that we all have a calling,
  • 00:09:09.864 --> 00:09:11.900
  • because where the Holy Spirit

  • we are born again in Christ.
  • 00:09:22.344 --> 00:09:24.479
  • So it's just huge.
  • 00:09:24.512 --> 00:09:26.147
  • But the Word of God saysin Acts 1, verse 8,
  • 00:09:26.181 --> 00:09:30.018
  • "that when theHoly Spirit comes,
  • 00:09:30.051 --> 00:09:32.220
  • he comes with power."
  • 00:09:32.253 --> 00:09:34.222
  • With power.
  • 00:09:34.255 --> 00:09:35.857
  • You have real-liveHoly Ghost power in you.
  • 00:09:35.890 --> 00:09:39.928
  • Does anyone understand whatI'm saying to them today?
  • 00:09:39.961 --> 00:09:42.530
  • Whether you have ever accessedit or not, whether--'cause
  • 00:09:42.564 --> 00:09:46.701
  • if we just do everythingin our own strength,
  • 00:09:46.735 --> 00:09:49.170
  • we never look to it,
  • 00:09:49.204 --> 00:09:51.072
  • we never walk with him enoughto even know that it's possible.
  • 00:09:51.106 --> 00:09:57.646
  • We may not ever see itenacted in our own lives
  • 00:09:58.580 --> 00:10:03.451
  • but if we're walking with him,
  • 00:10:03.485 --> 00:10:06.154
  • the Holy Spirit--youhave real-life power in you
  • 00:10:06.187 --> 00:10:08.923
  • to be what you cannot beand to do what you cannot do.
  • 00:10:08.957 --> 00:10:13.028
  • You have the power in youto overcome addiction.
  • 00:10:13.061 --> 00:10:17.132
  • You have the power in you,day by day to live in freedom
  • 00:10:17.165 --> 00:10:22.470
  • over that, that has kept youin its clutches for so long.
  • 00:10:22.504 --> 00:10:25.273
  • You have real-liveHoly Spirit power in you.
  • 00:10:25.306 --> 00:10:30.945
  • But here is the thing,you've got this gifting,
  • 00:10:30.979 --> 00:10:33.682
  • enormous gifting,every single one of you do,
  • 00:10:33.715 --> 00:10:36.618
  • this enormous gifting in you.
  • 00:10:36.651 --> 00:10:38.453
  • And remember when Paul saidto Timothy in 2 Timothy 1,
  • 00:10:38.486 --> 00:10:42.891
  • he said to him,"You fan the flame
  • 00:10:42.924 --> 00:10:46.194
  • "of your gifting into a fire.
  • 00:10:46.227 --> 00:10:48.530
  • You fan it."
  • 00:10:48.563 --> 00:10:49.964
  • Well, we can either fan itinto a flame of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:10:49.998 --> 00:10:54.302
  • or we can fan itinto a flame of flesh.
  • 00:10:54.335 --> 00:10:58.073
  • Do not think we could not takethe gifting of God
  • 00:10:58.106 --> 00:11:02.944

  • 00:13:20.515 --> 00:13:23.184
  • A is this, we can tripover our own feet:
  • 00:13:23.218 --> 00:13:27.522
  • I put a colon beside it,
  • 00:13:27.555 --> 00:13:29.357
  • this is what you'd callself-glory.
  • 00:13:29.390 --> 00:13:31.659
  • And here's the thing,for a while,

  • we will get away with it.
  • 00:13:34.662 --> 00:13:36.698

  • You may not see it.
  • 00:13:41.002 --> 00:13:42.370
  • You may look at a situationthat you think, "Oh, my word.
  • 00:13:42.403 --> 00:13:45.840
  • I mean that is so--that isappallingly self-glorying."
  • 00:13:45.874 --> 00:13:49.110
  • I mean there's some timesthat you see things
  • 00:13:49.143 --> 00:13:51.446
  • that make the back of--the hairon the back of your neck
  • 00:13:51.479 --> 00:13:53.982

  • And you think, "How arethey getting away with that?"
  • 00:13:55.683 --> 00:13:58.119
  • Well, it's on a timer.
  • 00:13:58.152 --> 00:14:00.255
  • I mean we'll think,is it okay with God?
  • 00:14:00.288 --> 00:14:02.390
  • Are you crazy?
  • 00:14:02.423 --> 00:14:05.460
  • We never self-glorythat it's okay with God.
  • 00:14:05.493 --> 00:14:07.996
  • Oh never.
  • 00:14:08.029 --> 00:14:09.530
  • Oh never.
  • 00:14:09.564 --> 00:14:11.065
  • The thing about it is he reallydid entrust gifting to us
  • 00:14:11.099 --> 00:14:13.234
  • and he's watching ussteward that gift.
  • 00:14:13.268 --> 00:14:15.336
  • And so the biggest thingwe see in Samson is,
  • 00:14:15.370 --> 00:14:18.039
  • man he is tripping overhis own gifted feet
  • 00:14:18.072 --> 00:14:21.743
  • with his own self-glory.
  • 00:14:21.776 --> 00:14:24.279
  • "When he finished speaking,he threw away the jawbone
  • 00:14:24.312 --> 00:14:27.715
  • "and he named the placeRamath-lehi.
  • 00:14:27.749 --> 00:14:31.085

  • "'You have accomplishedthis great victory
  • 00:14:33.121 --> 00:14:35.323

  • "of the uncircumcised?'
  • 00:14:39.594 --> 00:14:41.796
  • So God,"merciful and gracious is he,

  • "and he revived.
  • 00:14:54.609 --> 00:14:57.645
  • "And that is why he named itEn-hakkore,
  • 00:14:57.679 --> 00:15:01.749
  • "which is in Lehi today.
  • 00:15:01.783 --> 00:15:03.484
  • And he judged Israel 20 yearsin the days of the Philistines."
  • 00:15:03.518 --> 00:15:08.823
  • En-hakkore means the springof the caller.
  • 00:15:08.856 --> 00:15:14.062
  • The spring of the caller.
  • 00:15:14.095 --> 00:15:16.130
  • I want you to hearthis little excerpt
  • 00:15:16.164 --> 00:15:18.199
  • out of a Bible commentaryby Dr. D. I. Block.
  • 00:15:18.232 --> 00:15:23.504
  • And he writes this,in talking about this portion.
  • 00:15:23.538 --> 00:15:26.240
  • "Not one to miss an opportunityto leave his signature
  • 00:15:26.274 --> 00:15:29.043
  • "on the map,
  • 00:15:29.077 --> 00:15:30.778
  • "Samson named this springnear Lehi, En-hakkore,
  • 00:15:30.812 --> 00:15:35.783
  • a name it still bore at the timethis account was written."
  • 00:15:35.817 --> 00:15:38.619
  • I'm jumping down a little bitin his excerpt
  • 00:15:38.653 --> 00:15:41.656
  • where he talks about the name.
  • 00:15:41.689 --> 00:15:44.759
  • "It focuses on himand memorializes
  • 00:15:44.792 --> 00:15:47.895
  • "the power of this manto manipulate
  • 00:15:47.929 --> 00:15:51.099
  • "and move the hand of Godrather than the gracious action
  • 00:15:51.132 --> 00:15:54.836
  • of God on his behalf."
  • 00:15:54.869 --> 00:15:57.071
  • He named the springafter himself.
  • 00:15:57.105 --> 00:16:00.742
  • The spring of the caller.
  • 00:16:00.775 --> 00:16:02.543
  • Well, you know what dude?
  • 00:16:02.577 --> 00:16:03.978
  • Actually, he is the caller.
  • 00:16:04.012 --> 00:16:05.480
  • You and I are sittingnext to this spring.
  • 00:16:05.513 --> 00:16:09.350
  • Because it says,"His spirit was revived."
  • 00:16:09.384 --> 00:16:12.020
  • He's revived, and he didwhat he'd been called to do
  • 00:16:12.053 --> 00:16:16.190
  • for the next 20 years.
  • 00:16:16.224 --> 00:16:18.326
  • Disastrously, at times.
  • 00:16:18.359 --> 00:16:24.799
  • Will we be revived by a springwe name for ourselves
  • 00:16:24.832 --> 00:16:31.639
  • or by a springof the living water
  • 00:16:32.707 --> 00:16:36.577
  • where we know who our helpcomes from?
  • 00:16:36.611 --> 00:16:40.014
  • We know where our spring is.
  • 00:16:40.048 --> 00:16:42.150
  • Remember that the goal webelieve that God set for us is
  • 00:16:42.183 --> 00:16:45.853
  • that each one of us would eitherbe awakened
  • 00:16:45.887 --> 00:16:50.825
  • with a fresh aweover our divine calling
  • 00:16:50.858 --> 00:16:54.529
  • or reawakened,
  • 00:16:54.562 --> 00:16:57.231
  • that it will be an arrivalor a revival.
  • 00:16:57.265 --> 00:17:01.602
  • B is this, we can trip oversomeone else's feet, a rivalry.
  • 00:17:01.636 --> 00:17:07.775
  • I want you to think about this.
  • 00:17:07.809 --> 00:17:09.644
  • I was thinking aboutwhen I was growing up
  • 00:17:09.677 --> 00:17:12.847
  • in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.
  • 00:17:12.880 --> 00:17:14.482
  • And back in those days when wehad this kind of real-life phone
  • 00:17:14.515 --> 00:17:17.919
  • here that plugged in actually tothe wall, and we had two of 'em.
  • 00:17:17.952 --> 00:17:21.022
  • I had two of 'em.
  • 00:17:21.055 --> 00:17:22.356
  • But they were the same line, youknow, so you could answer it
  • 00:17:22.390 --> 00:17:25.460
  • in either end of the house.
  • 00:17:25.493 --> 00:17:27.962
  • And so my grandmother,
  • 00:17:27.995 --> 00:17:29.330
  • I was raised in afour-generation home
  • 00:17:29.363 --> 00:17:31.732
  • or a three-generation home,and my grandmother would listen
  • 00:17:31.766 --> 00:17:37.338
  • on the other line any timeus kids were on the phone.
  • 00:17:37.371 --> 00:17:41.042
  • And you'd--'causewe're a bunch of us.
  • 00:17:41.075 --> 00:17:43.111
  • I have lots of brothersand sisters.
  • 00:17:43.144 --> 00:17:44.712
  • And you know, we'd just walkedthrough the house to the kitchen
  • 00:17:44.745 --> 00:17:46.914
  • and there she'd be sitting.
  • 00:17:46.948 --> 00:17:48.249
  • I mean she's all like,she'd pull up a chair,
  • 00:17:48.282 --> 00:17:50.218
  • and she's all like.
  • 00:17:50.251 --> 00:17:52.553
  • And then she looks at you, you'dgo, "Nanny, get off the phone."
  • 00:17:52.587 --> 00:17:55.623
  • And she'd go, "Get on that.Scat."
  • 00:17:55.656 --> 00:17:57.291
  • I mean she wasshameless about it.
  • 00:17:57.325 --> 00:18:00.661
  • Shameless about it.
  • 00:18:00.695 --> 00:18:02.363
  • In essence, we're just listeningin on somebody else's calling.
  • 00:18:02.396 --> 00:18:04.499
  • We're just obsessedwith their calling.
  • 00:18:04.532 --> 00:18:06.067
  • Anybody know whatI'm talking about?
  • 00:18:06.100 --> 00:18:07.502
  • We see this in Peter.
  • 00:18:07.535 --> 00:18:08.836
  • In John chapter 21
  • 00:18:08.870 --> 00:18:10.771
  • when Christ gives hima little clue
  • 00:18:10.805 --> 00:18:13.007

  • Pick up your own phonebecause you got your own call.

  • "yet the traumatic potentialof this rumored rivalry

  • 00:21:06.881 --> 00:21:10.184
  • He's going to say she.
  • 00:21:10.217 --> 00:21:11.519
  • I'm about to quote what he saysand this is straight
  • 00:21:11.552 --> 00:21:13.187
  • from the play.
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:14.588
  • He's going to refer to sheand he means Mozart's wife.
  • 00:21:14.622 --> 00:21:17.458
  • "She had said that these wereoriginal scores,
  • 00:21:17.491 --> 00:21:21.095

  • "yet they looked like faircopies.
  • 00:21:24.265 --> 00:21:26.567
  • "They showed no correctionsof any kind.
  • 00:21:26.600 --> 00:21:29.403
  • "It was puzzling.
  • 00:21:29.437 --> 00:21:32.039
  • "Then suddenly alarming,what was evident was that Mozart
  • 00:21:32.073 --> 00:21:35.876
  • "was simply transcribing musiccompletely finished
  • 00:21:35.910 --> 00:21:40.981
  • "in his head
  • 00:21:41.015 --> 00:21:43.050
  • "and finished as most musicis never finished.
  • 00:21:43.084 --> 00:21:47.555
  • "Displace one note andthere would be diminishment.
  • 00:21:47.588 --> 00:21:51.592
  • "Displace one phraseand the structure would fall.
  • 00:21:51.625 --> 00:21:56.530
  • "I was staring through the cageof those meticulous ink strokes,
  • 00:21:56.564 --> 00:22:03.037
  • at an absolute beauty."
  • 00:22:04.438 --> 00:22:09.143
  • So the author Guinness picksup again and says,
  • 00:22:09.176 --> 00:22:11.312
  • "Stunned, Salieri collapsessenseless to the floor
  • 00:22:11.345 --> 00:22:16.384
  • "where he lies quite still,
  • 00:22:16.417 --> 00:22:18.252
  • "his head next to the scoreof the heavenly music.
  • 00:22:18.285 --> 00:22:22.022
  • "As the clock strikes 9:00,he raises his head
  • 00:22:22.056 --> 00:22:26.560
  • and addresses God."
  • 00:22:26.594 --> 00:22:28.829
  • And I want to share with youfrom the play
  • 00:22:28.863 --> 00:22:31.565
  • what he says to God.
  • 00:22:31.599 --> 00:22:33.434
  • "Capisco.I know my fate.
  • 00:22:33.467 --> 00:22:37.671
