  • When you're worshiping God, Iwant you to know what you are

  • doing when you do what you do.
  • 00:01:11.154 --> 00:01:16.292
  • Let's look at our mouth.
  • 00:01:16.326 --> 00:01:18.495
  • Concerning our mouth, we alwaysdeal with the voice, the lips,
  • 00:01:18.528 --> 00:01:22.999
  • we speak with our mouth, we singwith our mouth, we shout
  • 00:01:23.032 --> 00:01:27.470
  • with our mouth, we cry with thymouth.
  • 00:01:27.504 --> 00:01:30.039
  • With our hands, we lift themup we clap, we play instruments.
  • 00:01:30.073 --> 00:01:35.211
  • With our feet, we leap, we run,we dance, we stand.
  • 00:01:35.245 --> 00:01:40.617
  • With our bodies, we bow, wekneel, and we just lay out.
  • 00:01:40.650 --> 00:01:47.991
  • Let's look how dangerousthe mouth is.
  • 00:01:48.024 --> 00:01:51.828
  • So you understand what you'redoing when they tell you,
  • 00:01:51.861 --> 00:01:55.165
  • "Come on and let's praise him."
  • 00:01:55.198 --> 00:01:58.468
  • In Psalms, 8:1 it says, "O Lordour God, how excellent is
  • 00:01:58.501 --> 00:02:05.675
  • thy name in all the earth!
  • 00:02:05.708 --> 00:02:08.378
  • Who have set thy praiseabove the heavens."
  • 00:02:08.411 --> 00:02:15.785
  • He said I have set my praisethat comes out of your mouth
  • 00:02:15.818 --> 00:02:21.591
  • above every principality,above every power,
  • 00:02:21.624 --> 00:02:26.462
  • above the rulers of the darknessof the world, above spiritual
  • 00:02:26.496 --> 00:02:30.967
  • wickedness in high places.
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:34.671
  • I have set my praise that comesout of your mouth.
  • 00:02:34.704 --> 00:02:39.509
  • When you praise God, you justnot praising God in this
  • 00:02:39.542 --> 00:02:43.413
  • auditorium and it just goesto the ceiling, but every time
  • 00:02:43.446 --> 00:02:47.483
  • you open up your mouth,it goes...
  • 00:02:47.517 --> 00:02:51.688
  • I've set my praise
  • 00:02:55.925 --> 00:03:00.597
  • above the heavens.
  • 00:03:00.630 --> 00:03:02.799
  • That's why out of the mouthof babes and sucklings.
  • 00:03:02.832 --> 00:03:10.173
  • When you look at the word babesand sucklings I just wanna,
  • 00:03:10.206 --> 00:03:13.176
  • condense it, it's always peoplethat are babies, or whatever it
  • 00:03:13.209 --> 00:03:17.714
  • is, that's dependable on someoneelse to take care of them.
  • 00:03:17.747 --> 00:03:22.752
  • Out of the mouth of babesand sucklings I have ordained
  • 00:03:22.785 --> 00:03:29.125
  • strength, I've ordained praise.
  • 00:03:29.158 --> 00:03:32.262
  • Praise did not comeout of a Pentecostal church.
  • 00:03:32.295 --> 00:03:36.766
  • It did not come out of a trueholiness church.
  • 00:03:36.799 --> 00:03:39.936
  • It did not comeout of the Apostolic church,
  • 00:03:39.969 --> 00:03:43.072
  • but it came straight from God.
  • 00:03:43.106 --> 00:03:45.408
  • He said, "I've ordained praise!"
  • 00:03:45.441 --> 00:03:51.781
  • I said, I praise.
  • 00:03:51.814 --> 00:03:53.449
  • That once you put it in yourmouth, it has been established
  • 00:03:53.483 --> 00:03:59.088
  • to cause your enemy to havea power failure.
  • 00:03:59.122 --> 00:04:09.032
  • Whatever weapons that he wannause against you, when you put
  • 00:04:09.065 --> 00:04:13.936
  • praise in your mouth,it paralyzes.
  • 00:04:13.970 --> 00:04:18.975
  • That's why Hannah saidin 1 Samuel 2:1,
  • 00:04:25.915 --> 00:04:29.285
  • "My heart rejoices in the Lord.
  • 00:04:29.319 --> 00:04:33.389
  • My horn is exalted in the Lord.
  • 00:04:33.423 --> 00:04:39.028
  • My mouth is enlarged over myenemy because I don't mind
  • 00:04:39.062 --> 00:04:43.566
  • giving God praise."
  • 00:04:43.599 --> 00:04:47.503
  • Every time I praise God,my horn is exalted.
  • 00:04:47.537 --> 00:04:52.141
  • You cannot praise Godwithout gettin' new strength.
  • 00:04:52.175 --> 00:05:02.085
  • Jeremiah 33:11 says, "Whenthere's a voice of joy, there's
  • 00:05:02.118 --> 00:05:11.661
  • a voice of gladness, there'sa voice of the bridegroom,
  • 00:05:11.694 --> 00:05:19.902
  • there's a voice of the brideand the voice of them that can
  • 00:05:19.936 --> 00:05:25.775
  • just say, 'Praise ye the Lord.'"
  • 00:05:25.808 --> 00:05:31.647
  • And he said, if there's themthat could just bring
  • 00:05:31.681 --> 00:05:36.519
  • the sacrifice ofpraise with your voice
  • 00:05:36.552 --> 00:05:41.657
  • into the house of the Lord,
  • 00:05:41.691 --> 00:05:44.694
  • because before it gets here,it's gotta come out of here.
  • 00:05:44.727 --> 00:05:49.999
  • if you can just bringthe sacrifice of praise
  • 00:05:50.032 --> 00:05:55.605
  • into the house of the Lord.
  • 00:05:55.638 --> 00:05:57.940
  • This is personal.
  • 00:05:57.974 --> 00:05:59.475
  • Everything that the devil stealsfrom you,
  • 00:05:59.509 --> 00:06:03.413
  • I make him give it up praising.
  • 00:06:03.446 --> 00:06:08.451
  • I see a lot of times when wewake up in the morning, have you
  • 00:06:13.122 --> 00:06:16.159
  • ever been woke up by a bad call?
  • 00:06:16.192 --> 00:06:19.729
  • Bad news?
  • 00:06:19.762 --> 00:06:21.998
  • And the Word tells of the Psalms68, "He daily loaded us
  • 00:06:22.031 --> 00:06:25.501
  • with benefits."
  • 00:06:25.535 --> 00:06:27.003
  • Have you ever woke up with apain in your head, in the back?
  • 00:06:27.036 --> 00:06:30.873
  • The enemy's comingafter your benefits.
  • 00:06:30.907 --> 00:06:33.776
  • But if you can just startto bring in the sacrifice
  • 00:06:33.810 --> 00:06:38.281
  • of praise into the house, you'llfind out that sickness got
  • 00:06:38.314 --> 00:06:42.852
  • to back up.
  • 00:06:42.885 --> 00:06:47.223
  • Let's look at singing.
  • 00:06:47.256 --> 00:06:50.059
  • Singing in our church is notused to warm up our service.
  • 00:06:50.092 --> 00:06:58.067
  • It's not used to fill in spaces.
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:07:02.872
  • It's never used to entertain,or crank up your flesh.
  • 00:07:02.905 --> 00:07:10.546
  • But Psalms 47:6 said,"Sing praises to God.
  • 00:07:10.580 --> 00:07:17.053
  • Sing praises, sing praisesunto our King.
  • 00:07:17.086 --> 00:07:21.858
  • Sing praises."
  • 00:07:21.891 --> 00:07:23.759
  • Look at this command:Sing praise.
  • 00:07:23.793 --> 00:07:27.697
  • Anytime a praise song should besung, it always have to be
  • 00:07:27.730 --> 00:07:33.503
  • to God, about God, and for God.
  • 00:07:33.536 --> 00:07:38.207
  • If he's not--if it's not to him,for him, and about him,
  • 00:07:38.241 --> 00:07:41.978
  • it's not a praise.
  • 00:07:42.011 --> 00:07:46.015
  • But sing praises unto our God.
  • 00:07:46.048 --> 00:07:51.454
  • And Psalms 147 said, "Becauseit's a good thing
  • 00:07:51.487 --> 00:07:57.126
  • to sing praises.
  • 00:07:57.159 --> 00:07:59.061
  • It's pleasant, it's comely,it's agreeable to you,
  • 00:07:59.095 --> 00:08:02.999
  • it's attractive on ya.
  • 00:08:03.032 --> 00:08:04.734
  • In fact, when there's a praisein worship singing: Thank God
  • 00:08:04.767 --> 00:08:08.170
  • for technology and when wecan read the words when we don't
  • 00:08:08.204 --> 00:08:11.440
  • know the song, but when youjoin in and start singing,
  • 00:08:11.474 --> 00:08:15.912
  • praises look good on ya.
  • 00:08:15.945 --> 00:08:18.481
  • You're attractive.
  • 00:08:18.514 --> 00:08:21.384
  • When you're standingup in the midst of a worship
  • 00:08:21.417 --> 00:08:24.053
  • service, and your lips are notmoving and you're not singin,'
  • 00:08:24.086 --> 00:08:28.791
  • you just standing there lookinglike a bump on the log,
  • 00:08:28.824 --> 00:08:32.061
  • and there's words to tell youwhat to say about your God,
  • 00:08:32.094 --> 00:08:36.866
  • you really lookin' bad.
  • 00:08:36.899 --> 00:08:43.072
  • Let me just pen these next twoScriptures speaking to leaders.
  • 00:08:43.105 --> 00:08:47.276
  • 2 Chronicles 20:21-22: There'sa pastor named King Jehoshaphat.
  • 00:08:47.310 --> 00:08:56.719
  • He had to get a praise teamtogether, 'cause they were
  • 00:08:56.752 --> 00:09:02.258
  • facing some enemies.
  • 00:09:02.291 --> 00:09:05.061
  • And you know what?
  • 00:09:05.094 --> 00:09:06.395
  • I notice, when you get home youcan read it, I didn't see where
  • 00:09:06.429 --> 00:09:13.269
  • he called the best voicesin to see if you meet
  • 00:09:13.302 --> 00:09:18.341
  • the criteria.
  • 00:09:18.374 --> 00:09:21.344
  • He didn't have no practice runsto see if you sang soprano
  • 00:09:21.377 --> 00:09:27.750
  • or alto.
  • 00:09:27.783 --> 00:09:29.318
  • But I noticed that when he'dknow that there was trouble,
  • 00:09:29.352 --> 00:09:32.154
  • and the enemy, they wentinto prayer.
  • 00:09:32.188 --> 00:09:36.092
  • I want you to get this, leaders.
  • 00:09:36.125 --> 00:09:39.095
  • He picked them when they cameout of prayer and worship.
  • 00:09:39.128 --> 00:09:43.933
  • Leaders, if you're gonna havea praise team, if they don't
  • 00:09:43.966 --> 00:09:48.237
  • come to Bible study, you don'tneed them.
  • 00:09:48.270 --> 00:09:53.743
  • If they don't come to prayermeeting, you don't need them.
  • 00:09:53.776 --> 00:09:58.681
  • I don't care how giftedthey are.
  • 00:09:58.714 --> 00:10:00.049
  • How can they sing about a Godthat they don't know?
  • 00:10:00.082 --> 00:10:03.119
  • How can they sing about a Godthat's unfamiliar to them?
  • 00:10:03.152 --> 00:10:13.162
  • I hear the sound of a mightyrushing wind.
  • 00:10:20.836 --> 00:10:25.975
  • And we've just got to set somestuff in order.
  • 00:10:26.008 --> 00:10:30.613
  • 'Cause I see the glory cloud.
  • 00:10:30.646 --> 00:10:38.554
  • and it says, when they beganto sing praises, the Lord said,
  • 00:10:38.587 --> 00:10:48.264
  • "Ambush men!"
  • 00:10:48.297 --> 00:10:50.766
  • It would make service so mucheasier for us as preachers if we
  • 00:10:50.800 --> 00:10:55.671
  • got the right kind of singers.
  • 00:10:55.705 --> 00:11:00.876
  • When they don't have the samefive songs, you gotta set order.
  • 00:11:07.483 --> 00:11:16.859
  • 'Cause when they just beganto sing, maybe some praise team,
  • 00:11:16.892 --> 00:11:22.098
  • you got the same three fastsongs, to get you cranked,
  • 00:11:22.131 --> 00:11:28.003
  • and then you may get a slow one.
  • 00:11:28.037 --> 00:11:30.773
  • This is not about a tempoof a song, but it's
  • 00:11:30.806 --> 00:11:35.211
  • about the God that we singin'to and about.
  • 00:11:35.244 --> 00:11:42.351
  • Let me just say one more thing,since this is
  • 00:11:42.384 --> 00:11:45.154
  • a leadership conference.
  • 00:11:45.187 --> 00:11:47.189
  • Isaiah 52:8, it says, "Watchmenshall lift up the voice.
  • 00:11:48.591 --> 00:11:58.134
  • With the voice togetherthey shall sing."
  • 00:11:58.167 --> 00:12:03.439
  • Just in case there's someleaders here that like to stay
  • 00:12:03.472 --> 00:12:07.943
  • in the office while the praiseteam get in the service
  • 00:12:07.977 --> 00:12:15.351
  • together, I'm here to tell you,you're out of order.
  • 00:12:15.384 --> 00:12:20.523
  • It won't flow right, you won'tbe able to see eye to eye.
  • 00:12:20.556 --> 00:12:27.163
  • But if the voice of the watchmanwould be there and join
  • 00:12:27.196 --> 00:12:32.334
  • with the singers, somethin' willbegin to happen in our world.
  • 00:12:32.368 --> 00:12:39.875
  • God's getting readyto visit Zion.
  • 00:12:47.016 --> 00:12:49.819
  • I don't care how bad the churchbeing talked about.
  • 00:12:49.852 --> 00:12:53.689
  • We are in the time scheduleof a visitation,
  • 00:12:53.722 --> 00:12:57.893
  • and when we can just getworship right.
  • 00:12:57.927 --> 00:13:01.931
  • female: Thank you fromthe bottom of my heart.
  • 00:13:10.272 --> 00:13:12.608

  • So, thank you so much.
