  • Can y'all handle this kindof preaching?
  • 00:12:01.337 --> 00:12:03.472
  • I say, can y'all handlethis kind of preaching?
  • 00:12:03.506 --> 00:12:09.979
  • I'm kind of confused,because Jesus' own disciples
  • 00:12:10.012 --> 00:12:15.451
  • didn't get him.
  • 00:12:15.484 --> 00:12:16.952
  • They thought he had come tooverthrow Caesar and to take
  • 00:12:16.986 --> 00:12:25.394
  • care of their concerns.
  • 00:12:25.427 --> 00:12:28.664
  • They had defined him by whatthey needed from him.
  • 00:12:28.697 --> 00:12:37.139
  • Eliab's anger looks like Peter'sanger, trying to keep Jesus back
  • 00:12:37.173 --> 00:12:45.781
  • from the cross.
  • 00:12:45.815 --> 00:12:48.150
  • He defines Jesus as a politicalreformation, never understanding
  • 00:12:48.184 --> 00:12:58.160
  • that until Jesus fought thiscross thing, he couldn't get
  • 00:12:58.194 --> 00:13:04.533
  • to the greater dimensionof who he was.
  • 00:13:04.567 --> 00:13:08.337
  • Oh, yes, he did come to bringthe lunch, that's not a lie.
  • 00:13:08.370 --> 00:13:12.074
  • And it's something when you gotto fight something
  • 00:13:12.107 --> 00:13:14.109
  • that's kind of true.
  • 00:13:14.143 --> 00:13:15.811
  • It's easy to fight somethingthat's a lie, but when
  • 00:13:15.845 --> 00:13:19.949
  • it's true, I did come to bringthe lunch.
  • 00:13:19.982 --> 00:13:24.453
  • But there's more in me thanwhat you see.
  • 00:13:24.486 --> 00:13:33.762
  • There's more in me thana political leader.
  • 00:13:33.796 --> 00:13:37.499
  • My kingdom is not of this world.
  • 00:13:37.533 --> 00:13:40.269
  • You're trying to hold me downto this level of definition,
  • 00:13:40.302 --> 00:13:47.309
  • but I have a higher purposethat I must achieve.
  • 00:13:47.343 --> 00:13:53.883
  • You say the victory was wonat Calvary.
  • 00:13:53.916 --> 00:14:00.055
  • I say the victory was won atGethsemane, because it was
  • 00:14:00.089 --> 00:14:05.361
  • at Gethsemane that he madea decision.
  • 00:14:05.394 --> 00:14:09.365
  • Hey!
  • 00:14:09.398 --> 00:14:10.733
  • Touch somebody, say, I havedecided.
  • 00:14:10.766 --> 00:14:12.067
  • It don't have nothing to do withhow I feel, it don't have
  • 00:14:12.101 --> 00:14:20.442
  • nothing to do with what you saidabout me, I have the--
  • 00:14:20.476 --> 00:14:28.484
  • See, I know he didn't want todo it, 'cause he said, Father,
  • 00:14:29.985 --> 00:14:39.161
  • if it be thy will, pass thisbitter cup from me.
  • 00:14:39.194 --> 00:14:45.467
  • He had to pray over it threetimes to finally say, not my--
  • 00:14:45.501 --> 00:14:53.509
  • but thine be done
  • 00:14:56.011 --> 00:14:57.980
  • Now sit with me, let me talkto you, I gotta talk to you.
  • 00:14:58.013 --> 00:15:00.149
  • There are three things, you see,I'm tryin' to figure out.
  • 00:15:00.182 --> 00:15:03.452
  • Am I preaching about David,or am I preaching about Jesus,
  • 00:15:03.485 --> 00:15:09.658
  • who is the son of David, or am Ipreaching about you,
  • 00:15:09.692 --> 00:15:14.263
  • for beloved now are ye?
  • 00:15:14.296 --> 00:15:15.931
  • You see, if it's true aboutDavid, and if it's true
  • 00:15:15.965 --> 00:15:25.941
  • about Jesus, [cheering],
  • 00:15:25.975 --> 00:15:35.985
  • then it's true about you.
  • 00:15:39.655 --> 00:15:43.826
  • You got something that keepscoming down out of Gath,
  • 00:15:45.661 --> 00:15:49.832
  • snorting at you, telling youwhat you can't do
  • 00:15:49.865 --> 00:15:54.136
  • and what you can't be?
  • 00:15:54.169 --> 00:15:55.938
  • Defining you by your childhood,calling you a boy, calling you
  • 00:15:55.971 --> 00:16:03.012
  • less than?
  • 00:16:03.045 --> 00:16:08.384
  • There were three things that Igot out of the text that I want
  • 00:16:08.417 --> 00:16:11.653
  • you to get, that are important.
  • 00:16:11.687 --> 00:16:14.957
  • It is at the point of decisionthat three things
  • 00:16:14.990 --> 00:16:19.595
  • had to be decided.
  • 00:16:19.628 --> 00:16:21.363
  • Number one, I want you to writedown eclipse, because until
  • 00:16:21.397 --> 00:16:30.005
  • you're calling eclipseyour circumstance--
  • 00:16:30.039 --> 00:16:38.047
  • See, it's cause thatbrings about effect.
  • 00:16:41.817 --> 00:16:47.723
  • If you don't have a cause,you don't have an effect.
  • 00:16:47.756 --> 00:16:51.160
  • Oo, can I take some time,I gotta, I kinda wanna take
  • 00:16:51.193 --> 00:16:54.630
  • some time with this.
  • 00:16:54.663 --> 00:16:56.198
  • The reason we are losingour young boys is that,
  • 00:16:56.231 --> 00:17:01.370
  • in the absence of a cause,circumstances
  • 00:17:01.403 --> 00:17:05.908
  • will always prevail.
  • 00:17:05.941 --> 00:17:07.443
  • If you don't give a mansomething that's more important
  • 00:17:07.476 --> 00:17:15.317
  • than how he feels, he willalways digress back to
  • 00:17:15.350 --> 00:17:19.855
  • his feelings.
  • 00:17:19.888 --> 00:17:21.223
  • Is there not a cause?
  • 00:17:21.256 --> 00:17:26.862
  • See, David was a lunch boy untilhe came down to the battle and
  • 00:17:26.895 --> 00:17:33.802
  • he saw what was at stake.
  • 00:17:33.836 --> 00:17:36.105
  • And then the calling eclipsedthe conflict.
  • 00:17:36.138 --> 00:17:40.809
  • Oh, God, help me preach this.
  • 00:17:40.843 --> 00:17:42.911
  • Have you ever been scaredof something until?
  • 00:17:42.945 --> 00:17:50.652
  • Oh, I wish I had a witnessin here.
  • 00:17:50.686 --> 00:17:52.187
  • I'm gonna answer you.
  • 00:17:52.221 --> 00:17:53.522
  • Have you ever been scared ofsomething until what it was
  • 00:17:53.555 --> 00:18:00.996
  • stopping you from became moreimportant than what you thought
  • 00:18:01.029 --> 00:18:06.635
  • about it.
  • 00:18:06.668 --> 00:18:08.003
  • I'm telling you, it'll make alittle woman jump on a big man.
  • 00:18:08.036 --> 00:18:13.575
  • If you don't believe it, hit oneof these women's children,
  • 00:18:13.609 --> 00:18:20.916
  • watch her turn intoa guerilla warrior.
  • 00:18:20.949 --> 00:18:25.954
  • Touch somebody and say,"Don't mess with my child."
  • 00:18:31.293 --> 00:18:35.597
  • Is there not a cause meansyour calling must eclipse
  • 00:18:35.631 --> 00:18:45.641
  • your circumstance, or you willgo back to being who you were.
  • 00:18:48.977 --> 00:18:57.252
  • Whenever what's in front of youbecomes more important than
  • 00:18:57.286 --> 00:18:59.788
  • what was behind you,you will always get away.
  • 00:18:59.821 --> 00:19:05.561
  • Whenever what is in front of youbecomes more important than what
  • 00:19:05.594 --> 00:19:09.364
  • was behind you, you will alwaysget away.
  • 00:19:09.398 --> 00:19:14.603
  • Is there not a cause?
  • 00:19:14.636 --> 00:19:18.740
  • The cause eclipsedthe circumstance.
  • 00:19:18.774 --> 00:19:23.545
  • You need a cause.
  • 00:19:23.579 --> 00:19:27.249
  • It is not about how well youfight, it is about what
  • 00:19:27.282 --> 00:19:30.819
  • you are fighting for.
  • 00:19:30.852 --> 00:19:37.793
  • Leave, my brother.
  • 00:19:37.826 --> 00:19:44.833
  • So I want you to find the thingthat eclipses what
  • 00:19:44.866 --> 00:19:50.706
  • you're afraid of.
  • 00:19:50.739 --> 00:19:52.074
  • For, if it be thy will,pass this cup from me.
  • 00:19:52.107 --> 00:19:58.146
  • We don't even understand whateclipsed his feelings until the
  • 00:19:58.180 --> 00:20:02.317
  • writer in Hebrews says that hedespised the shame of the cross
  • 00:20:02.351 --> 00:20:08.223
  • but for the joy, here coming,that is set before him.
  • 00:20:08.257 --> 00:20:13.028
  • When he saw you and I,it eclipsed the cross.
  • 00:20:13.061 --> 00:20:19.167
  • And he clenched his fear.
  • 00:20:19.201 --> 00:20:21.003
  • And he clenched his fear.
  • 00:20:21.036 --> 00:20:22.838
  • You need an eclipse.
  • 00:20:22.871 --> 00:20:28.610
  • Number one, you gotta have iteclipse.
  • 00:20:28.644 --> 00:20:30.245
  • Number two is the word enough.
  • 00:20:30.279 --> 00:20:35.884
  • You cannot defeat your giantuntil you believe that what you
  • 00:20:35.917 --> 00:20:42.391
  • got is enough.
  • 00:20:42.424 --> 00:20:47.562

  • 00:20:47.596 --> 00:20:54.369
  • Shout, I am enough!

  • I don't need the armies to helpme, I don't need Eliab to
  • 00:20:57.939 --> 00:21:02.844
  • believe in me, I don't needSaul's armor to fight with.
  • 00:21:02.878 --> 00:21:09.084
  • I will use what I have, becausewhat I have- I said, what I
  • 00:21:09.117 --> 00:21:17.993

  • Somebody shout, enough!
  • 00:21:26.735 --> 00:21:28.070

  • convince you that you were notenough.
  • 00:21:36.778 --> 00:21:40.449
