  • PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS: So evenwhen the children of Israel
  • 00:00:02.518 --> 00:00:03.652
  • were in a time of correctionfrom God and even when Israel
  • 00:00:03.752 --> 00:00:07.423
  • was in a time of correction,God was providing.
  • 00:00:07.523 --> 00:00:09.725
  • But as soon asthey were humbled,
  • 00:00:09.825 --> 00:00:12.594
  • the children of Israelin the wilderness walked
  • 00:00:12.694 --> 00:00:15.664
  • into the Promised Land.

  • PASTOR ROBERT: All right,we're gonna finish our series
  • 00:00:31.847 --> 00:00:33.582
  • today called,“The Kings of Babylon,”
  • 00:00:33.682 --> 00:00:36.518
  • and we're gonna be talking aboutthe fourth king, which is Cyrus.
  • 00:00:36.618 --> 00:00:40.889
  • And, I'm going to just give youa little bit of history
  • 00:00:40.989 --> 00:00:44.460
  • on the Book of Daniel first,and then I'll tell you
  • 00:00:44.560 --> 00:00:47.696
  • what this message is about.
  • 00:00:47.796 --> 00:00:52.034
  • You need to knowthat Daniel ministered
  • 00:00:52.134 --> 00:00:54.570
  • to all four of these kings,and just let me show you
  • 00:00:54.670 --> 00:00:57.239
  • some quick Scriptures.
  • 00:00:57.339 --> 00:00:58.640
  • Daniel 1:21 says, “Thus Danielcontinued until the first year
  • 00:00:58.740 --> 00:01:03.779
  • of King Cyrus,”and we're gonna be talking
  • 00:01:03.879 --> 00:01:06.248
  • about Cyrus today.
  • 00:01:06.348 --> 00:01:07.583
  • And Daniel 6:28,this is actually where
  • 00:01:07.683 --> 00:01:10.018
  • we ended last week,at the end of Chapter 6.
  • 00:01:10.119 --> 00:01:13.255
  • “So this Daniel prosperedin the reign of Darius
  • 00:01:13.355 --> 00:01:16.024
  • and in the reignof Cyrus the Persian.”
  • 00:01:16.125 --> 00:01:18.961
  • So, we talked aboutDarius last week, now Cyrus.
  • 00:01:19.061 --> 00:01:21.163
  • Now, to let you know,Daniel has 12 chapters.
  • 00:01:21.263 --> 00:01:24.600
  • The first six chaptersare historical chapters.
  • 00:01:24.700 --> 00:01:28.237
  • They're the history of whathappened during the exile.
  • 00:01:28.337 --> 00:01:31.773
  • The exile is the 70 years whenGod took the people of Israel
  • 00:01:31.874 --> 00:01:37.045
  • out of the land into Babylon,in captivity, okay?
  • 00:01:37.146 --> 00:01:41.083
  • That's called the exile.
  • 00:01:41.183 --> 00:01:42.451
  • So, the first six chaptersare the history of the exile.
  • 00:01:42.551 --> 00:01:46.255
  • The second six chapters,Chapters 7 through 12,
  • 00:01:46.355 --> 00:01:49.725
  • are the visionsthat Daniel received
  • 00:01:49.825 --> 00:01:52.594
  • that most people believeare about the end times,
  • 00:01:52.694 --> 00:01:56.265
  • and some areabout the end times,
  • 00:01:56.365 --> 00:01:58.433
  • but some are about thingsthat were going to happen
  • 00:01:58.534 --> 00:02:01.370
  • until the Messiah cameand when the Messiah came.
  • 00:02:01.470 --> 00:02:04.706
  • All right?So, let me just show you.
  • 00:02:04.806 --> 00:02:06.441
  • You can read these, but it wouldtake a whole another series,
  • 00:02:06.542 --> 00:02:10.112
  • but just Daniel7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12,
  • 00:02:10.212 --> 00:02:13.415
  • just the first verse, all right?
  • 00:02:13.515 --> 00:02:15.184
  • Daniel 7:1, “In the firstyear of Belshazzar,
  • 00:02:15.284 --> 00:02:18.720
  • king of Babylon,Daniel had a dream.”
  • 00:02:18.820 --> 00:02:22.024
  • Daniel 8:1, “In the third yearof the reign of King Belshazzar,
  • 00:02:22.124 --> 00:02:26.328
  • a vision appeared to me.”
  • 00:02:26.428 --> 00:02:28.030
  • Daniel 9, “Inthe first year of Darius,
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:31.033
  • the son of,” hard word,“of the lineage of the Medes,
  • 00:02:31.133 --> 00:02:35.904
  • who was made kingof the realm of the Chaldeans.”
  • 00:02:36.004 --> 00:02:38.440
  • Now, here's whatI want you to notice.
  • 00:02:38.540 --> 00:02:39.708
  • “In the first yearof his reign, I, Daniel,”
  • 00:02:39.808 --> 00:02:41.944
  • now hold this phrasefor later in the message,
  • 00:02:42.044 --> 00:02:45.280
  • “understood by the booksthe number of the years
  • 00:02:45.380 --> 00:02:49.952
  • specified bythe word of the Lord
  • 00:02:50.052 --> 00:02:52.287
  • through Jeremiah the prophet,that He would accomplish
  • 00:02:52.387 --> 00:02:55.357
  • seventy years inthe desolation of Jerusalem.”
  • 00:02:55.457 --> 00:02:58.527
  • So, Daniel was saying,I understood
  • 00:02:58.627 --> 00:03:01.096
  • that we would be releasedafter 70 years.
  • 00:03:01.196 --> 00:03:03.565
  • I just want you to notice that.We'll come back to that.
  • 00:03:03.665 --> 00:03:06.235
  • Daniel 10:1, “In the third yearof Cyrus, king of Persia,
  • 00:03:06.335 --> 00:03:10.339
  • a message wasrevealed to Daniel.”
  • 00:03:10.439 --> 00:03:12.441
  • Daniel 11:1, “Also in the firstyear of Darius the Mede,
  • 00:03:12.541 --> 00:03:16.111
  • I, even I, stood up to confirmand strengthen him.”
  • 00:03:16.211 --> 00:03:18.280
  • So, you can see how itjust keeps going through,
  • 00:03:18.380 --> 00:03:20.082
  • how he's saying in the firstyear of this king
  • 00:03:20.182 --> 00:03:22.551
  • I had this dream,
  • 00:03:22.651 --> 00:03:23.652
  • in the third year of thisking I had this dream.
  • 00:03:23.752 --> 00:03:25.787
  • Are you all following me?
  • 00:03:25.887 --> 00:03:26.989
  • Now, Daniel 12:1, I want youto watch how it starts,
  • 00:03:27.089 --> 00:03:30.826
  • and watch how many Scripturesof the New Testament
  • 00:03:30.926 --> 00:03:34.196
  • this one verse...I wishI could have given them to you,
  • 00:03:34.296 --> 00:03:36.732
  • but I don't have time.
  • 00:03:36.832 --> 00:03:37.966
  • If this was a seminary class,I'd give them all to you,
  • 00:03:38.066 --> 00:03:40.669
  • but I don't have timein a weekend message.
  • 00:03:40.769 --> 00:03:42.437
  • But Daniel 12:1 says, “At thattime Michael shall stand up.”
  • 00:03:42.537 --> 00:03:48.410
  • Michael, Michael the Archangel,“shall stand up,
  • 00:03:48.510 --> 00:03:53.315
  • the great princewho stands watch
  • 00:03:53.415 --> 00:03:54.950
  • over the sons of Your people,
  • 00:03:55.050 --> 00:03:56.785
  • and there shall bea time of trouble,”
  • 00:03:56.885 --> 00:03:58.920
  • a great tribulation,“such as never was since
  • 00:03:59.021 --> 00:04:01.723
  • there was a nation,even to that time.
  • 00:04:01.823 --> 00:04:04.259
  • And at that time, Your peopleshall be delivered,”
  • 00:04:04.359 --> 00:04:06.962
  • there's the rapture,“every one who is found
  • 00:04:07.062 --> 00:04:10.532
  • written in the book,”and the New Testament talks
  • 00:04:10.632 --> 00:04:13.602
  • about the Book of Life,“and many of those who sleep
  • 00:04:13.702 --> 00:04:16.538
  • in the dust ofthe earth shall awake,”
  • 00:04:16.638 --> 00:04:19.274
  • that's 1 Thessalonians 4, “Thosewho sleep will awake,” right?
  • 00:04:19.374 --> 00:04:25.213
  • “Some to everlasting life,some to shame
  • 00:04:25.314 --> 00:04:27.382
  • and everlasting contempt,”that's Revelation 20.
  • 00:04:27.482 --> 00:04:29.985
  • That's Daniel.Are you all following me?
  • 00:04:30.085 --> 00:04:32.187
  • So, it's amazing.All right.
  • 00:04:32.287 --> 00:04:33.455
  • So, we're gonnatalk about Cyrus,
  • 00:04:33.555 --> 00:04:34.656
  • and I've been telling youthat Cyrus is the surprise.
  • 00:04:34.756 --> 00:04:37.893
  • What does Cyrus represent?
  • 00:04:37.993 --> 00:04:39.928
  • So, here's the titleof the message this week.
  • 00:04:40.028 --> 00:04:41.963
  • This is the surprise -“The Reversal of Pride.”
  • 00:04:42.064 --> 00:04:47.636
  • Pride can be reversed.Let me say it another way.
  • 00:04:47.736 --> 00:04:54.509
  • A prideful personcan become a humble person.
  • 00:04:54.609 --> 00:05:02.984
  • A prideful personcan become a humble person.
  • 00:05:03.085 --> 00:05:08.023
  • So, let's ask this though,
  • 00:05:08.123 --> 00:05:10.092
  • because we'vegot Nebuchadnezzar,
  • 00:05:10.192 --> 00:05:12.194
  • and God humbled him.Darius, and God humbled him.
  • 00:05:12.294 --> 00:05:17.032
  • We've got all through ScriptureGod humbling people.
  • 00:05:17.132 --> 00:05:19.668
  • So, does God humble people?Yes, God does humble people.
  • 00:05:19.768 --> 00:05:23.438
  • Why would Godever humble anyone?
  • 00:05:23.538 --> 00:05:25.741
  • I'm gonna give you some answers,but let me just give you one
  • 00:05:25.841 --> 00:05:27.876
  • that's not evenin my notes, all right?
  • 00:05:27.976 --> 00:05:29.845
  • And that is that pride -we've heard pride
  • 00:05:29.945 --> 00:05:32.047
  • comes before a fall.
  • 00:05:32.147 --> 00:05:33.448
  • That's actually notwhat the Bible says.
  • 00:05:33.548 --> 00:05:35.917
  • It says, “Pride comes beforedestruction and a haughty spirit
  • 00:05:36.017 --> 00:05:40.122
  • before a fall.”Look it up yourself.
  • 00:05:40.222 --> 00:05:42.691
  • But, our little sayinghas become, you know,
  • 00:05:42.791 --> 00:05:44.726
  • the Bible says pridecomes before a fall.
  • 00:05:44.826 --> 00:05:46.294
  • Pride comes before a fall.
  • 00:05:46.395 --> 00:05:47.329
  • No, it comes before destruction,a haughty spirit
  • 00:05:47.429 --> 00:05:49.931
  • comes before a fall.
  • 00:05:50.031 --> 00:05:50.999
  • Okay, so why would Godever humble anyone?
  • 00:05:51.099 --> 00:05:54.403
  • Simple, to keep themfrom being destroyed.
  • 00:05:54.503 --> 00:05:59.474
  • In other words,because He loves you.
  • 00:05:59.574 --> 00:06:01.777
  • So, let me give youthree reasons that God
  • 00:06:01.877 --> 00:06:04.746
  • wants to reversepride in your life.
  • 00:06:04.846 --> 00:06:06.248
  • Number one, God's plansfor you are for your good.
  • 00:06:06.348 --> 00:06:11.420
  • God's plans for youare for your good.
  • 00:06:11.520 --> 00:06:16.091
  • Deuteronomy 8:16, “Who fed youin the wilderness with manna,
  • 00:06:16.191 --> 00:06:20.796
  • which your fathersdid not know.”
  • 00:06:20.896 --> 00:06:22.798
  • This is talking aboutthe children of Israel
  • 00:06:22.898 --> 00:06:24.466
  • into the wilderness.Watch.
  • 00:06:24.566 --> 00:06:25.834
  • “That He might humble you.”So, God did this to humble them.
  • 00:06:25.934 --> 00:06:30.405
  • “That He might humble youand that He might test you,
  • 00:06:30.505 --> 00:06:35.510
  • to do you good in the end.”There it is right there.
  • 00:06:35.610 --> 00:06:41.016
  • That's straightout of the Bible.
  • 00:06:41.116 --> 00:06:42.584
  • Why would God everhumble anyone?
  • 00:06:42.684 --> 00:06:44.286
  • To do them good,for their good.
  • 00:06:44.386 --> 00:06:46.154
  • Matter of fact,you've probably
  • 00:06:46.254 --> 00:06:47.289
  • made this statementat some point.
  • 00:06:47.389 --> 00:06:48.790
  • I know God is humbling meand I know God is testing me
  • 00:06:48.890 --> 00:06:52.494
  • right now, but I knowit's for my good.
  • 00:06:52.594 --> 00:06:55.564
  • If you're a mature believer,you know Romans 8:28,
  • 00:06:55.664 --> 00:06:58.366
  • “That all things work for goodfor those who love God
  • 00:06:58.467 --> 00:07:00.469
  • and called accordingto His purpose.” Right?
  • 00:07:00.569 --> 00:07:02.370
  • Okay. So, He'sdoing it for that.
  • 00:07:02.471 --> 00:07:04.940
  • But, we're talkingabout the exile,
  • 00:07:05.040 --> 00:07:07.509
  • that was talkingabout the wilderness.
  • 00:07:07.609 --> 00:07:09.211
  • Do you remember Daniel said,and I told you to remember this,
  • 00:07:09.311 --> 00:07:12.747
  • he said I started readingthe Book of Jeremiah,
  • 00:07:12.848 --> 00:07:18.520
  • and that's when I figuredout it was 70 years.
  • 00:07:18.620 --> 00:07:22.057
  • Do you remember that?
  • 00:07:22.157 --> 00:07:23.058
  • Let me show youthe Scripture.
  • 00:07:23.158 --> 00:07:24.960
  • Jeremiah 24:5, “Thus saysthe Lord, the God of Israel.”
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:29.064
  • By the way,this was right before
  • 00:07:29.164 --> 00:07:30.198
  • they're taken captive.
  • 00:07:30.298 --> 00:07:31.867
  • “Like these good figs,so will I acknowledge those
  • 00:07:31.967 --> 00:07:37.272
  • who are carried awaycaptive from Judah,
  • 00:07:37.372 --> 00:07:41.009
  • whom I have sentout of this place,”
  • 00:07:41.109 --> 00:07:44.546
  • do you mind saying these words?
  • 00:07:44.646 --> 00:07:46.815
  • “For their own good, intothe land of the Chaldeans,”
  • 00:07:46.915 --> 00:07:54.589
  • which is Babylon.
  • 00:07:54.689 --> 00:07:57.726
  • I told you, God did thisfor the good of His people,
  • 00:07:57.826 --> 00:08:04.299
  • not to punish them,not ‘cause He's mad at them,
  • 00:08:04.399 --> 00:08:06.968
  • not ‘cause He'sgonna get them back,
  • 00:08:07.068 --> 00:08:08.270
  • teach them a lesson,
  • 00:08:08.370 --> 00:08:09.471
  • "I'm gonna reallyteach them a good lesson."
  • 00:08:09.571 --> 00:08:11.973
  • He's doing it for their good.
  • 00:08:12.073 --> 00:08:13.842
  • Now, there's another Scripturein Jeremiah that you know.
  • 00:08:13.942 --> 00:08:19.814
  • As a matter of fact,we quote it.
  • 00:08:19.915 --> 00:08:21.349
  • As a matter of fact, it was inthe little ceramic bread thing
  • 00:08:21.449 --> 00:08:27.622
  • on my grandmother's table.Anyone remember that?
  • 00:08:27.722 --> 00:08:31.626
  • It was the verse of the day,bread for the day
  • 00:08:31.726 --> 00:08:34.663
  • or something like that,and you'd pull it out
  • 00:08:34.763 --> 00:08:36.298
  • and read a Scripture, and thenput that one in the back,
  • 00:08:36.398 --> 00:08:38.333
  • you know?Okay, so I remember.
  • 00:08:38.433 --> 00:08:40.669
  • You have quotedthis Scripture, I'll bet you,
  • 00:08:40.769 --> 00:08:44.673
  • but I'll also bet youyou didn't know the context.
  • 00:08:44.773 --> 00:08:48.610
  • Jeremiah 29:11, have youever heard of this Scripture?
  • 00:08:48.710 --> 00:08:52.881
  • “For I know the thoughtsthat I think toward you,
  • 00:08:52.981 --> 00:08:55.584
  • says the Lord,thoughts of peace,”
  • 00:08:55.684 --> 00:08:59.421
  • and one version says “thoughtsof good,” “and not of evil,
  • 00:08:59.521 --> 00:09:04.859
  • to give youa future and a hope.”
  • 00:09:04.960 --> 00:09:08.263
  • Now, are you readyfor this Scripture you quoted?
  • 00:09:08.363 --> 00:09:10.832
  • Do you want to knowwhat the context is of it?
  • 00:09:10.932 --> 00:09:14.035
  • Watch Verse 10,the verse right before it.
  • 00:09:14.135 --> 00:09:17.238
  • “For thus says the Lord:“After seventy years
  • 00:09:17.339 --> 00:09:21.843
  • are completed at Babylon,I will visit you
  • 00:09:21.943 --> 00:09:27.015
  • and performMy good word toward you,
  • 00:09:27.115 --> 00:09:31.219
  • and cause youto return to this place.
  • 00:09:31.319 --> 00:09:35.023
  • For I know the thoughtsthat I think toward you.”
  • 00:09:35.123 --> 00:09:38.526
  • That's wherethe verse came from.
  • 00:09:38.627 --> 00:09:40.595
  • It's referring to the exile.
  • 00:09:40.695 --> 00:09:42.197
  • Now, let me show youone more Scripture here,
  • 00:09:42.297 --> 00:09:45.066
  • 2 Chronicles 36:22-23.
  • 00:09:45.166 --> 00:09:48.336
  • These are the last twoverses of 2 Chronicles.
  • 00:09:48.436 --> 00:09:51.439
  • “In the first year of Cyrusking of Persia,
  • 00:09:51.539 --> 00:09:55.176
  • that the word of the Lordby the mouth of Jeremiah
  • 00:09:55.276 --> 00:09:58.647
  • might be fulfilled,”we just read the two Scriptures,
  • 00:09:58.747 --> 00:10:01.416
  • “the Lord stirred up the spiritof Cyrus king of Persia,
  • 00:10:01.516 --> 00:10:04.586
  • so that he made a proclamationthrough all his kingdom,
  • 00:10:04.686 --> 00:10:07.489
  • and also put itin writing, saying,
  • 00:10:07.589 --> 00:10:09.824
  • Thus says Cyrus king of Persia:All the kingdoms of the earth
  • 00:10:09.924 --> 00:10:14.262
  • the Lord Godof heaven has given me.
  • 00:10:14.362 --> 00:10:17.065
  • And He has commanded me to buildHim a house at Jerusalem,”
  • 00:10:17.165 --> 00:10:21.469
  • now we're gonna seethat actual Scripture as well,
  • 00:10:21.569 --> 00:10:24.739
  • where He commands Cyrus to fundthe building of the temple.
  • 00:10:24.839 --> 00:10:28.443
  • “A house at Jerusalemwhich is in Judah.
  • 00:10:28.543 --> 00:10:30.612
  • Who is among youof all His people?
  • 00:10:30.712 --> 00:10:32.947
  • May the Lord his Godbe with him and let him go up.”
  • 00:10:33.048 --> 00:10:35.684
  • In other words, all of youwho are of Jerusalem,
  • 00:10:35.784 --> 00:10:38.453
  • you all go up and do thisand I'm gonna fund it.
  • 00:10:38.553 --> 00:10:41.456
  • I'm gonna resource it.
  • 00:10:41.556 --> 00:10:42.691
  • Okay, now here's what I wantyou to know about this.
  • 00:10:42.791 --> 00:10:45.627
  • 2 Chronicles 36,the two verses we just read,
  • 00:10:45.727 --> 00:10:50.465
  • the last two versesof 2 Chronicles 36,
  • 00:10:50.565 --> 00:10:52.801
  • are you ready for this?
  • 00:10:52.901 --> 00:10:54.302
  • These are the lasttwo verses chronologically
  • 00:10:54.402 --> 00:11:00.475
  • of the Hebrew Scriptures,not Malachi.
  • 00:11:00.575 --> 00:11:06.948
  • These are the last --
  • 00:11:07.048 --> 00:11:08.650
  • This is the waythe Old Testament,
  • 00:11:08.750 --> 00:11:12.353
  • the Hebrew Scriptures,end, right here
  • 00:11:12.454 --> 00:11:16.157
  • with the rebuildingof the temple.
  • 00:11:16.257 --> 00:11:18.259
  • Jesus comes along and says,you see this temple?
  • 00:11:18.359 --> 00:11:24.132
  • And you've worshippedat this temple?
  • 00:11:24.232 --> 00:11:27.502
  • But I'm telling you...now,listen to the way He says it.
  • 00:11:27.602 --> 00:11:30.672
  • I think He saidit like this.
  • 00:11:30.772 --> 00:11:32.907
  • Tear this temple down andI'll rebuild it in three days.
  • 00:11:33.007 --> 00:11:40.448
  • I'm changing the wayyou thought about the temple.
  • 00:11:40.548 --> 00:11:44.018
  • I'm about to makeMy temple in your heart.
  • 00:11:44.119 --> 00:11:47.388
  • But here's whatI want to tell you.
  • 00:11:47.489 --> 00:11:48.389
  • Here's the good news, okay?
  • 00:11:48.490 --> 00:11:50.425
  • If you get yourself in trouble,even if God is disciplining you
  • 00:11:50.525 --> 00:11:55.563
  • like He was His children,He's doing it for your good.
  • 00:11:55.663 --> 00:12:00.368
  • He's doing it for your good.
  • 00:12:00.468 --> 00:12:02.670
  • If you're going throughsomething right now,
  • 00:12:02.771 --> 00:12:05.039
  • you need to knowit's for your good.
  • 00:12:05.140 --> 00:12:07.675
  • It was always for their good,
  • 00:12:07.776 --> 00:12:09.811
  • and He said it overand over again.
  • 00:12:09.911 --> 00:12:11.446
  • Here's number two.
  • 00:12:11.546 --> 00:12:12.547
  • God knows youbefore you know Him.
  • 00:12:12.647 --> 00:12:18.653
  • So, no matter what type of homeyou grew up in or no matter
  • 00:12:18.753 --> 00:12:21.156
  • what you went through, God knewyou before you knew Him.
  • 00:12:21.256 --> 00:12:25.126
  • So, it is believed that Daniel,
  • 00:12:25.226 --> 00:12:29.898
  • not only whenhe was reading Jeremiah,
  • 00:12:29.998 --> 00:12:31.533
  • he also read Isaiah, and showedthese Scriptures to Cyrus,
  • 00:12:31.633 --> 00:12:35.670
  • and that's why Cyrus gavethe decree to build the temple.
  • 00:12:35.770 --> 00:12:38.239
  • We don't know that Daniel'sthe one that showed him
  • 00:12:38.339 --> 00:12:40.041
  • 'cause the Bibledoesn't tell us that,
  • 00:12:40.141 --> 00:12:41.709
  • but we think Danielwould have been the logical one,
  • 00:12:41.810 --> 00:12:44.012
  • because he's the one who hadaccess and he had his ear, okay?
  • 00:12:44.112 --> 00:12:46.948
  • Now, here's the amazing thing.
  • 00:12:47.048 --> 00:12:49.017
  • God said, “I named you.”
  • 00:12:49.117 --> 00:12:50.718
  • I'm the Onethat gave you your name.
  • 00:12:50.819 --> 00:12:53.922
  • What you don't knowis that when Cyrus was born,
  • 00:12:54.022 --> 00:12:56.791
  • his grandfather was the king,and his grandfather had a dream
  • 00:12:56.891 --> 00:13:02.530
  • that his grandsonwas going to overthrow him.
  • 00:13:02.630 --> 00:13:06.734
  • Now, the grandfather -the son's name,
  • 00:13:06.835 --> 00:13:09.304
  • who was the father of Cyrus,
  • 00:13:09.404 --> 00:13:12.473
  • listen to whathis name was - Cambyses I.
  • 00:13:12.574 --> 00:13:19.647
  • Why wouldn't his sonhave been named Cambyses II?
  • 00:13:19.747 --> 00:13:22.684
  • By the way, Cyrus namedhis son Cambyses II, okay?
  • 00:13:22.784 --> 00:13:28.790
  • So, the grandfather has thisdream that his grandson
  • 00:13:28.890 --> 00:13:32.927
  • is going to overthrow him,so he orders him to be killed.
  • 00:13:33.027 --> 00:13:38.366
  • They give him to oneof the king's upper guys there.
  • 00:13:38.466 --> 00:13:42.537
  • He takes him out,but he meets a shepherd
  • 00:13:42.637 --> 00:13:47.242
  • and his wife who are buryingtheir stillborn son,
  • 00:13:47.342 --> 00:13:54.182
  • and he switchesbabies with them.
  • 00:13:54.282 --> 00:13:58.319
  • He takes the deadbaby back and says, look,
  • 00:13:58.419 --> 00:14:01.356
  • the infant has been killed,to the grandfather, the king.
  • 00:14:01.456 --> 00:14:05.660
  • The shepherd names him Cyrus,even though his father
  • 00:14:05.760 --> 00:14:10.865
  • named him Cambyses II, becauseif he had been named that,
  • 00:14:10.965 --> 00:14:14.903
  • someone wouldhave known who he was.
  • 00:14:15.003 --> 00:14:16.905
  • Are you all following me?Okay.
  • 00:14:17.005 --> 00:14:19.674
  • He names him Cyrus.
  • 00:14:19.774 --> 00:14:21.409
  • God says 150 yearsbefore he comes into power,
  • 00:14:21.509 --> 00:14:26.814
  • I'm the One that named you.I knew you.
  • 00:14:26.915 --> 00:14:31.286
  • And then He makesthis statement,
  • 00:14:31.386 --> 00:14:34.122
  • “And you're My shepherd.”
  • 00:14:34.222 --> 00:14:35.957
  • For the firstten years of his life,
  • 00:14:36.057 --> 00:14:38.426
  • he's raised by this shepherdand his mother,
  • 00:14:38.526 --> 00:14:41.496
  • and he thinksthat's his parents,
  • 00:14:41.596 --> 00:14:43.231
  • and he thinks he's a shepherd,and he learns to tend sheep,
  • 00:14:43.331 --> 00:14:45.900
  • and he thinkshe's gonna be a shepherd.
  • 00:14:46.000 --> 00:14:47.802
  • Every year whenthey took the baby back,
  • 00:14:47.902 --> 00:14:49.771
  • the grandfather ordered himto be killed mourned
  • 00:14:49.871 --> 00:14:52.540
  • so much every yearon his birthday,
  • 00:14:52.640 --> 00:14:54.676
  • that finallyon his 10th birthday
  • 00:14:54.776 --> 00:14:57.178
  • he was mourning so much -on his 10th birthday,
  • 00:14:57.278 --> 00:15:00.348
  • that they finally said to him,got the nerve up to say,
  • 00:15:00.448 --> 00:15:02.850
  • King, he's not dead.
  • 00:15:02.951 --> 00:15:05.386
  • He's not dead,he's still alive.
  • 00:15:05.486 --> 00:15:07.388
  • And he said,please restore him.
  • 00:15:07.488 --> 00:15:08.723
  • I want to be ableto meet my grandson.
  • 00:15:08.823 --> 00:15:11.592
  • So, they go and take him.He has no clue, though.
  • 00:15:11.693 --> 00:15:15.296
  • He thinks he's being takenfrom his real parents, see?
  • 00:15:15.396 --> 00:15:18.032
  • The shepherd.
  • 00:15:18.132 --> 00:15:19.033
  • He goes and beginsliving in the palace,
  • 00:15:19.133 --> 00:15:21.336
  • finds out he's the grandson.
  • 00:15:21.436 --> 00:15:22.971
  • By the way,the prophecy came to pass.
  • 00:15:23.071 --> 00:15:25.573
  • He did overthrowhis grandfather.
  • 00:15:25.673 --> 00:15:27.942
  • He did become the rulerof the world,
  • 00:15:28.042 --> 00:15:29.677
  • but when he becomesthe ruler of the world,
  • 00:15:29.777 --> 00:15:32.513
  • the prophet comes to him andhe says to him, look right here.
  • 00:15:32.613 --> 00:15:35.683
  • This was written 150 years ago,
  • 00:15:35.783 --> 00:15:38.019
  • and God saysI'm the One that named you.
  • 00:15:38.119 --> 00:15:42.590
  • This is amazing!This is amazing!
  • 00:15:42.690 --> 00:15:46.494
  • I'm telling you,our God knows.
  • 00:15:46.594 --> 00:15:48.162
  • He plans.
  • 00:15:48.262 --> 00:15:49.163
  • He's got it allplanned out, everything!
  • 00:15:49.263 --> 00:15:51.366
  • [Applause]
  • 00:15:51.466 --> 00:15:53.568
  • So, he knew youbefore you knew Him.
  • 00:15:53.668 --> 00:15:55.236
  • Here's number three, God's plansfor you include provision.
  • 00:15:55.336 --> 00:16:01.943
  • God's plans for youinclude provision.
  • 00:16:02.043 --> 00:16:05.580
  • Ezra 1:4, “And whoeveris left in any place
  • 00:16:05.680 --> 00:16:09.450
  • where he dwells,let the men of his place
  • 00:16:09.550 --> 00:16:12.153
  • help him with silver and gold,with goods and livestock,
  • 00:16:12.253 --> 00:16:16.924
  • besides the freewill offeringsof the house of God,
  • 00:16:17.025 --> 00:16:19.827
  • which is in Jerusalem.”
  • 00:16:19.927 --> 00:16:20.928
  • Ezra 3:7, “They alsogave money to the masons
  • 00:16:21.029 --> 00:16:24.065
  • and the carpenters,and food, and drink,
  • 00:16:24.165 --> 00:16:26.267
  • and oil to the peopleof Sidon and Tyre
  • 00:16:26.367 --> 00:16:28.703
  • to bring cedar logs from Lebanonto the sea, to Joppa,
  • 00:16:28.803 --> 00:16:32.106
  • according to the permissionwhich they had from Cyrus,
  • 00:16:32.206 --> 00:16:36.210
  • king of Persia.”
  • 00:16:36.310 --> 00:16:38.212
  • God was providingfor them everything
  • 00:16:38.312 --> 00:16:41.115
  • they needed through Cyrus.This is the reversal of pride.
  • 00:16:41.215 --> 00:16:45.887
  • When pride getsreversed in your life,
  • 00:16:45.987 --> 00:16:48.156
  • you immediately stepinto God's plan for you,
  • 00:16:48.256 --> 00:16:50.558
  • and you also stepinto God's provision for you.
  • 00:16:50.658 --> 00:16:53.294
  • And Daniel, Shadrach,and Meshach,
  • 00:16:53.394 --> 00:16:55.163
  • and Abednego werealways provided for.
  • 00:16:55.263 --> 00:16:57.465
  • The children of Israel,their clothes didn't wear out
  • 00:16:57.565 --> 00:17:00.101
  • and their shoes didn't wear out,
  • 00:17:00.201 --> 00:17:01.302
  • and I know you ladieswouldn't like having
  • 00:17:01.402 --> 00:17:02.904
  • the same pairof shoes for 40 years.
  • 00:17:03.004 --> 00:17:05.006
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:05.106 --> 00:17:06.407
  • But, they didn't wear out!
  • 00:17:06.507 --> 00:17:08.276
  • There wasn't a Nordstrom'sin the wilderness,
  • 00:17:08.376 --> 00:17:10.545
  • so God provided for them.
  • 00:17:10.645 --> 00:17:13.114
  • So even when the childrenof Israel were in a time
  • 00:17:13.214 --> 00:17:16.784
  • of correction from God,and even when Israel
  • 00:17:16.884 --> 00:17:19.420
  • was in a time of correction,God was providing.
  • 00:17:19.520 --> 00:17:21.689
  • But as soon asthey were humbled,
  • 00:17:21.789 --> 00:17:25.093
  • the children of Israelin the wilderness
  • 00:17:25.193 --> 00:17:27.095
  • walked into the Promised Land,
  • 00:17:27.195 --> 00:17:29.697
  • which was a land thathad houses built by giants.
  • 00:17:29.797 --> 00:17:34.402
  • The giants were overnine feet tall.
  • 00:17:34.502 --> 00:17:37.238
  • Nine foot king sized beds.
  • 00:17:37.338 --> 00:17:41.909
  • Nine foot big screen TV's.
  • 00:17:42.009 --> 00:17:44.779
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:44.879 --> 00:17:47.515
  • Not bad.
  • 00:17:47.615 --> 00:17:49.484
  • And then when the childrenof Israel were released
  • 00:17:49.584 --> 00:17:51.619
  • and went back to rebuildthe walls of their city
  • 00:17:51.719 --> 00:17:55.289
  • and their temple, every pennywas provided for already.
  • 00:17:55.389 --> 00:18:02.530
  • This is our God!
  • 00:18:02.630 --> 00:18:04.365
  • This is God!This is God!
  • 00:18:04.465 --> 00:18:06.968
  • [Applause]
  • 00:18:07.068 --> 00:18:09.971
  • So, God humbles us,but that's not the ultimate.
  • 00:18:10.071 --> 00:18:20.648
  • The ultimate isthat you humble yourself.
  • 00:18:20.748 --> 00:18:26.787
  • Because even when God humbledNebuchadnezzar, he had a choice.
  • 00:18:26.888 --> 00:18:32.527
  • He had to humble himself.
  • 00:18:32.627 --> 00:18:33.828
  • God humbled Darius and Cyrus,so they humbled themselves.
  • 00:18:33.928 --> 00:18:36.464
  • Belshazzar did nothumble himself.
  • 00:18:36.564 --> 00:18:39.133
  • Remember that?
  • 00:18:39.233 --> 00:18:40.234
  • Even though God humbled him.
  • 00:18:40.334 --> 00:18:41.769
  • Okay, so how do youhumble yourself?
  • 00:18:41.869 --> 00:18:44.572
  • I asked God that questionfor many years.
  • 00:18:44.672 --> 00:18:47.108
  • I said, “God,I want to be humble,
  • 00:18:47.208 --> 00:18:51.579
  • but I reallydon't want to be humbled.”
  • 00:18:51.679 --> 00:18:55.917
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:18:56.017 --> 00:18:57.385
  • Have you everhad that thought?
  • 00:18:57.485 --> 00:18:59.453
  • I want to be humble, Lord,
  • 00:18:59.554 --> 00:19:01.923
  • but I really don'twant You to humble me.
  • 00:19:02.023 --> 00:19:05.426
  • But the Biblesays humble myself,
  • 00:19:05.526 --> 00:19:07.962
  • so how do you humble yourself?
  • 00:19:08.062 --> 00:19:09.230
  • Well, the Lordshowed me one day,
  • 00:19:09.330 --> 00:19:10.765
  • and He gave me the greatestexample of humbling yourselves.
  • 00:19:10.865 --> 00:19:15.469
  • It's the personthat humbled himself
  • 00:19:15.570 --> 00:19:18.005
  • the most that ever lived -it's Jesus.
  • 00:19:18.105 --> 00:19:23.911
  • Philippians 2:5, “You musthave the same attitude
  • 00:19:24.011 --> 00:19:28.849
  • that Christ had.
  • 00:19:28.950 --> 00:19:31.819
  • Though He was God, He didnot think of equality with God,
  • 00:19:31.919 --> 00:19:36.991
  • though He was equal with God,
  • 00:19:37.091 --> 00:19:39.260
  • as something to hang onto,”or to cling to.
  • 00:19:39.360 --> 00:19:41.829
  • “Instead, He gave upHis divine privilege.
  • 00:19:41.929 --> 00:19:44.865
  • He gave up Hisequality with God,
  • 00:19:44.966 --> 00:19:49.270
  • He took the humbleposition of a slave
  • 00:19:49.370 --> 00:19:52.840
  • and was born as a human being.
  • 00:19:52.940 --> 00:19:55.142
  • When He appearedin human form, He,” what?
  • 00:19:55.243 --> 00:19:59.213
  • “Humbled Himselfin obedience to God,
  • 00:19:59.313 --> 00:20:02.450
  • and died a criminal's deathon a cross.”
  • 00:20:02.550 --> 00:20:03.918
  • So, how do you humble yourself?
  • 00:20:04.018 --> 00:20:05.353
  • The word “humble”has about four or five
  • 00:20:05.453 --> 00:20:07.555
  • definitions in the Greek.
  • 00:20:07.655 --> 00:20:08.990
  • This is one of the definitions -to rank yourself below others.
  • 00:20:09.090 --> 00:20:15.863
  • To rank yourself below others,and Philippians 2,
  • 00:20:15.963 --> 00:20:19.267
  • if you backed up a little bit,in Verse 3, says this.
  • 00:20:19.367 --> 00:20:21.502
  • “Let each esteem othersbetter than himself.”
  • 00:20:21.602 --> 00:20:27.341
  • When I thought about this,the person that I thought of
  • 00:20:27.441 --> 00:20:30.811
  • that has alwaysesteemed everyone
  • 00:20:30.911 --> 00:20:33.748
  • better than herselfis my wife, always.
  • 00:20:33.848 --> 00:20:40.988
  • She's the greatest exampleof humility I know.
  • 00:20:41.088 --> 00:20:44.825
  • She esteems me,she esteems everyone we meet.
  • 00:20:44.925 --> 00:20:48.829
  • She's constantly wanting usto help a person in need.
  • 00:20:48.929 --> 00:20:54.201
  • She's talked to me aboutgiving cars to single moms.
  • 00:20:54.302 --> 00:20:57.104
  • We give cars whenGod tells us to.
  • 00:20:57.204 --> 00:21:00.875
  • And years agothe Lord told me...
  • 00:21:00.975 --> 00:21:02.576
  • I handle all ofthe finances in our family.
  • 00:21:02.677 --> 00:21:05.079
  • I don't mean thatin a wrong way toward her,
  • 00:21:05.179 --> 00:21:07.381
  • but she can't count.
  • 00:21:07.481 --> 00:21:09.350
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:21:09.450 --> 00:21:11.185
  • And she will admit it.
  • 00:21:11.285 --> 00:21:12.353
  • She does notunderstand numbers.
  • 00:21:12.453 --> 00:21:14.755
  • I was telling her one timesomething about our finances.
  • 00:21:14.855 --> 00:21:17.091
  • She says[Babbling].
  • 00:21:17.191 --> 00:21:19.627
  • She just, she cannot,so I just handle it.
  • 00:21:19.727 --> 00:21:22.797
  • But years ago the Lord told me,
  • 00:21:22.897 --> 00:21:25.266
  • when she wantsto give something,
  • 00:21:25.366 --> 00:21:27.635
  • whatever it is,you give it.
  • 00:21:27.735 --> 00:21:30.871
  • He told me that.
  • 00:21:30.971 --> 00:21:31.872
  • Whatever she wantsto give, you give,
  • 00:21:31.972 --> 00:21:33.808
  • because she'llcome sometimes and say...
  • 00:21:33.908 --> 00:21:35.543
  • I remember the firsttime she did it.
  • 00:21:35.643 --> 00:21:36.744
  • She said, “I'd liketo help this single mom.
  • 00:21:36.844 --> 00:21:38.446
  • I'd like to get her a car.”
  • 00:21:38.546 --> 00:21:40.314
  • We bought her a used car, but“I'd like to get her a car.”
  • 00:21:40.414 --> 00:21:43.851
  • And the Lord said to me,“Whatever she says, you do it.”
  • 00:21:43.951 --> 00:21:47.188
  • She's very generous,
  • 00:21:47.288 --> 00:21:48.556
  • but she's always generouswith everyone else,
  • 00:21:48.656 --> 00:21:51.325
  • she's never generouswith herself.
  • 00:21:51.425 --> 00:21:54.929
  • So, every year at Christmas,and anniversary, and birthday,
  • 00:21:55.029 --> 00:21:59.767
  • I call Elaine, our daughter.Where's Elaine?
  • 00:21:59.867 --> 00:22:02.036
  • Right there.
  • 00:22:02.136 --> 00:22:03.337
  • To find out what does Mom want,‘cause she won't tell me,
  • 00:22:03.437 --> 00:22:09.276
  • ‘cause she knowsI'll go buy it.
  • 00:22:09.377 --> 00:22:11.112
  • So, Elaine startshinting around.
  • 00:22:11.212 --> 00:22:14.548
  • Just letting you know,Elaine is the spy.
  • 00:22:14.648 --> 00:22:17.852
  • You knew Elaine was the spy!
  • 00:22:17.952 --> 00:22:22.056
  • So, a few years ago,I said, “What does she want?”
  • 00:22:22.156 --> 00:22:24.825
  • And she said, “Momswore me to secrecy.”
  • 00:22:24.925 --> 00:22:27.595
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:22:27.695 --> 00:22:30.364
  • I said, “Sugar,I'm gonna pull rank.”
  • 00:22:30.464 --> 00:22:35.803
  • She said, “Well, she wouldlike a certain purse,
  • 00:22:35.903 --> 00:22:41.242
  • but it's very, very expensiveand very extravagant.”
  • 00:22:41.342 --> 00:22:44.178
  • And so, she said to me, “Pleasedon't ever tell your dad this,
  • 00:22:44.278 --> 00:22:47.448
  • because this is tooexpensive of a purse,
  • 00:22:47.548 --> 00:22:49.717
  • but I like this purse.”And so I said...
  • 00:22:49.817 --> 00:22:52.653
  • because she said itwas very expensive,
  • 00:22:52.753 --> 00:22:54.388
  • I said, “Well, how much is it?”
  • 00:22:54.488 --> 00:22:56.223
  • And when she told me, I cameclose to having a heart attack.
  • 00:22:56.323 --> 00:23:00.528
  • That was the closestI've come to dying,
  • 00:23:00.628 --> 00:23:03.497
  • other than the helicopter.It was the closest I'd come.
  • 00:23:03.597 --> 00:23:07.601
  • And I thought, are you sureshe doesn't want another car?
  • 00:23:07.701 --> 00:23:10.938
  • You know, that's just,that's crazy!
  • 00:23:11.038 --> 00:23:14.975
  • That's crazy!
  • 00:23:15.075 --> 00:23:19.213
  • But, I went to the Lord.
  • 00:23:19.313 --> 00:23:20.381
  • “Lord, what do Youwant me to do?”
  • 00:23:20.481 --> 00:23:24.585
  • Here's what the Lord said to me.Now, listen.
  • 00:23:24.685 --> 00:23:28.289
  • He said, “I would like to givethat purse to My daughter.”
  • 00:23:28.389 --> 00:23:39.967
  • He said, “I want to show Mydaughter how much I love her.”
  • 00:23:40.067 --> 00:23:44.505
  • So a few weeks after that,we go to speak at this church,
  • 00:23:44.605 --> 00:23:47.408
  • and a widow in the churchcame to Debbie and said,
  • 00:23:47.508 --> 00:23:54.114
  • “God told me to buy you this.”
  • 00:23:54.215 --> 00:23:59.119
  • And she opened it up,and it was the exact same purse
  • 00:23:59.220 --> 00:24:03.524
  • that she wanted,the exact same purse.
  • 00:24:03.624 --> 00:24:06.360
  • [Applause]
  • 00:24:06.460 --> 00:24:09.930
  • And she said to her, “This isfrom a Father to His daughter.
  • 00:24:13.868 --> 00:24:22.443
  • God wanted you to have this.”
  • 00:24:22.543 --> 00:24:26.180
  • I'm telling you,God's plans for you are good.
  • 00:24:26.280 --> 00:24:29.416
  • No matter whatyou're going through,
  • 00:24:29.517 --> 00:24:30.951
  • God knew youbefore you knew Him,
  • 00:24:31.051 --> 00:24:36.290
  • and God's plansinclude provision.
  • 00:24:36.390 --> 00:24:38.959
