  • HE WILL COME TO ME AND WHISPER TO ME THINGS THAT
  • 00:18:50.210 --> 00:18:53.060
  • YOU KNOW NOT OF, PEOPLE, THE SUFFERING I GO
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:54.260
  • THROUGH WITH MATT.
  • 00:18:54.280 --> 00:18:56.190
  • WHERE IS HE?
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:19:00.070
  • OH, HE'S THERE.
  • 00:19:00.090 --> 00:19:01.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:04.090
  • I WANT TO GIVE YOU A PROPHECY OF THE MESSIAH
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:07.000
  • FROM PROPHET ISAIAH.
  • 00:19:07.020 --> 00:19:10.100
  • OF ALL THE THINGS THAT ISAIAH COULD HAVE
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:12.150
  • PROPHESIED ABOUT THE MESSIAH, HOW HE'S A
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:14.230
  • VICTORIOUS CONQUERING MESSIAH, ISAIAH SAID THIS
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:17.200
  • OF HIM, IN MATTHEW 12, THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
  • 00:19:17.220 --> 00:19:20.210
  • QUOTES THE PROPHECY OF ISAIAH, A BRUISED REED HE
  • 00:19:20.230 --> 00:19:24.060
  • WILL NOT BREAK AND SMOKING FLAX HE WILL NOT
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:30.130
  • QUENCH UNTIL HE SENDS FORTH JUSTICE TO VICTORY.
  • 00:19:30.150 --> 00:19:35.040
  • A BRUISED REED, A CRUSHED REED, HE WILL NOT BREAK.
  • 00:19:35.060 --> 00:19:38.260
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE LOST YOUR
  • 00:19:38.280 --> 00:19:43.090
  • SONG -- BECAUSE IN THOSE DAYS -- LET ME SHOW YOU A
  • 00:19:43.110 --> 00:19:46.040
  • PICTURE OF A REED UP HERE.
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:48.080
  • YOU CAN SEE IT IF YOU SEE A REED, THIS IS A PICTURE
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:50.050
  • TAKEN IN ISRAEL ON ONE OF MY TOURS, AND THAT'S A
  • 00:19:50.070 --> 00:19:53.010
  • REED, AND WHAT THE CHILDREN WOULD DO DURING
  • 00:19:53.030 --> 00:19:56.070
  • JESUS' TIME IS THAT THEY'LL MAKE A FLUTE OUT
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:58.260
  • OF THE REED.
  • 00:19:58.280 --> 00:20:00.010
  • THERE'S A FLUTE COMING UP.
  • 00:20:00.030 --> 00:20:01.190
  • YEP. THERE'S A YOUNG BOY THERE.
  • 00:20:01.210 --> 00:20:03.140
  • HE'S ONE OF MY PASTORS.
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:05.050
  • AND HE'S PLAYING A FLUTE.
  • 00:20:05.070 --> 00:20:08.060
  • WE FOUND THIS REED BY THE LAKE OF GALILEE, AND HE
  • 00:20:08.080 --> 00:20:11.290
  • PICKED IT UP, OF COURSE HE CAN'T MAKE A TUNE
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:13.190
  • BECAUSE HE'S BRUCE. SO WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:20:13.210 --> 00:20:15.240
  • REED'S A TIME A DOZEN, YOU THROW THEM AWAY. RIGHT?
  • 00:20:15.260 --> 00:20:19.190
  • WHEN IT GETS BRUISED, YOU DON'T YOU KNOW KEEP ON
  • 00:20:19.210 --> 00:20:22.180
  • USING THAT REED.
  • 00:20:22.200 --> 00:20:23.270
  • YOU THROW IT AWAY BECAUSE REEDS ARE DIME A DOZEN.
  • 00:20:23.290 --> 00:20:25.240
  • AS YOU SEE ALONG THE RIVER JORDAN,
  • 00:20:25.260 --> 00:20:27.110
  • YOU FIND A LOT OF REEDS.
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:30.070
  • WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR SONG?
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:32.130
  • YOU LOSE YOUR PRAISE.
  • 00:20:32.150 --> 00:20:34.130
  • YOU'RE NO MORE SINGING JOYFUL CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:20:34.150 --> 00:20:37.020
  • HE DOESN'T PUT YOU ASIDE.
  • 00:20:37.040 --> 00:20:40.010
  • A BRUISED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK, AND A SMOKING
  • 00:20:40.030 --> 00:20:44.150
  • FLAX HE WILL NOT QUENCH. WHAT'S A SMOKING FLAX?
  • 00:20:44.170 --> 00:20:47.270
  • BACK IN THOSE DAYS, THEY WOULD USE A LAMP, AN
  • 00:20:47.290 --> 00:20:51.020
  • URBAN LAMP AND THIS IS A LAMP FROM ISRAEL.
  • 00:20:51.040 --> 00:20:54.200
  • AND WHAT THEY DO IS THEY HAVE A WICK AT THE END
  • 00:20:54.220 --> 00:20:57.070
  • OF MADE OF CLOTH, LINEN CLOTH.
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:21:00.150
  • AND WHEN IT IS CHARRED, IT'S BURNED OUT.
  • 00:21:00.170 --> 00:21:04.090
  • ARE YOU BURNED OUT?
  • 00:21:04.110 --> 00:21:07.220
  • WHEN YOU ARE BURN OUT, THERE WILL BE SMOKE AND
  • 00:21:07.240 --> 00:21:12.280
  • THERE WILL BE A STENCH, AND PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:21:13.000 --> 00:21:15.070
  • WANT TO BE AROUND YOU.
  • 00:21:15.090 --> 00:21:17.090
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAYS A SMOKING FLAX JESUS WILL
  • 00:21:17.110 --> 00:21:21.010
  • NOT QUENCH. HE'LL BE RIGHT IN THERE WITH YOU.
  • 00:21:21.030 --> 00:21:25.080
  • IN OUR MINDS WE HAVE, WE NEED TO REPENT.
  • 00:21:25.100 --> 00:21:27.240
  • REPENT MEANS TO CHANGE YOUR MIND.
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:31.130
  • WE THINK THAT YES, WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:21:31.150 --> 00:21:35.150
  • TO PLEASE GOD, BUT GOD DOES NOT PUT YOU ASIDE
  • 00:21:35.170 --> 00:21:38.020
  • WHEN YOU ARE WEAK IN YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:21:38.040 --> 00:21:40.020
  • THOSE SEASONS WHEN YOU ARE FEELING DOWN, WHEN
  • 00:21:40.040 --> 00:21:42.030
  • YOU ARE ANXIOUS, AND YOU'RE DEPRESSED, AND YOU
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:45.030
  • KNOW YOU SHOULD NOT BE, BECAUSE YOU'VE
  • 00:21:45.050 --> 00:21:47.230
  • NOT BEEN LISTENING TO JOEL OSTEEN.
  • 00:21:47.250 --> 00:21:50.070
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:21:50.090 --> 00:21:53.070
  • YOU MISSED LISTENING TO HIM FOR A WEEK OR SO.
  • 00:21:53.090 --> 00:21:55.140
  • YOU'RE ON HOLIDAY OR WHATEVER AND
  • 00:21:55.160 --> 00:21:56.220
  • NOW YOU'RE DEPRESSED.
  • 00:21:56.240 --> 00:21:58.240
  • YOU KNOW SOMETHING, GOD DOESN'T PUT YOU ASIDE.
  • 00:21:58.260 --> 00:22:02.150
  • A BRUISED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK, A SMOKING FLAX
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:05.230
  • HE WILL NOT QUENCH.
  • 00:22:05.250 --> 00:22:08.100
  • MY BIBLE SAYS IN PSALMS 146, IT SAYS
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:13.250
  • GOD COUNTS THE NUMBER OF STARS.
  • 00:22:13.270 --> 00:22:17.140
  • HE COUNTS THE NUMBER OF THE STARS AND
  • 00:22:17.160 --> 00:22:19.010
  • HE CALLS THEM BY NAME.
  • 00:22:19.030 --> 00:22:21.250
  • AND IMMEDIATELY THE PSALMIST SAYS BEFORE
  • 00:22:21.270 --> 00:22:25.230
  • THAT HE HEALS THE BROKENHEARTED.
  • 00:22:25.250 --> 00:22:28.220
  • HE BINDS UP THEIR WOUNDS.
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:31.000
  • LOOK AT THE CONTRAST.
  • 00:22:31.020 --> 00:22:32.160
  • RIGHT AFTER THAT, HE COUNTS THE NUMBER OF THE
  • 00:22:32.180 --> 00:22:34.040
  • STARS. HE CALLS THEM ALL BY NAME.
  • 00:22:34.060 --> 00:22:36.190
  • AND YET, IT COMES RIGHT AFTER HE SAYS HE HEALS
  • 00:22:36.210 --> 00:22:39.010
  • THE BROKEN HEART AND BINDS UP THEIR WOUNDS.
  • 00:22:39.030 --> 00:22:42.140
  • THE GOD-- WHO AMONGST US CAN COUNT THE NUMBER OF
  • 00:22:42.160 --> 00:22:46.220
  • THE STARS? WHO AMONG US CAN FATHOM THE SORROW
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:52.080
  • OF A BROKEN HEART?
  • 00:22:52.100 --> 00:22:54.230
  • THE SAME GOD WHO CAN COUNT THE NUMBER OF THE
  • 00:22:54.250 --> 00:22:57.130
  • STARS AND CALL THEM BY NAMES IS THE GOD WHO
  • 00:22:57.150 --> 00:23:01.010
  • BINDS UP THE BROKENHEARTED ON EARTH.
  • 00:23:01.030 --> 00:23:05.010
  • WHAT A SAVIOR.
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:08.030
  • IN THE GREATNESS OF HIS LOVE, HE GAVE US
  • 00:23:08.050 --> 00:23:10.190
  • HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.
  • 00:23:10.210 --> 00:23:12.250
  • HE SENT HIM TO THIS EARTH TO HEAL BROKEN HEARTS.
  • 00:23:12.270 --> 00:23:17.010
  • ONE OF THE PRIMARY THINGS THAT JESUS SAID HE CAME TO
  • 00:23:17.030 --> 00:23:19.090
  • DO. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME BECAUSE HE HAS
  • 00:23:19.110 --> 00:23:21.060
  • ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR
  • 00:23:21.080 --> 00:23:24.200
  • AND TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED.
  • 00:23:24.220 --> 00:23:28.120
  • YOU KNOW, THE WORLD IS FULL OF BROKEN HEARTS.
  • 00:23:28.140 --> 00:23:30.260
  • THERE MIGHT BE OUTWARD GAIETY AND LAUGHTER, BUT
  • 00:23:30.280 --> 00:23:35.240
  • LIKE SOLOMON SAYS IN THE BOOK OF PROVERBS,
  • 00:23:35.260 --> 00:23:38.070
  • EVEN IN LAUGHTER THE HEART IS SORROWFUL.
  • 00:23:38.090 --> 00:23:43.140
  • SO THEY TRY TO COVER UP WITH LAUGHTER, YOU
  • 00:23:43.160 --> 00:23:45.080
  • SWITCH ON THE TV, YOU HEAR THEM LAUGHING ALL
  • 00:23:45.100 --> 00:23:46.260
  • THE TIME, BUT NO ONE KNOWS THE SECRET SORROWS
  • 00:23:46.280 --> 00:23:49.290
  • AND BROKEN HEARTS THAT ARE IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:23:50.010 --> 00:23:53.260
  • BUT JESUS DOES.
  • 00:23:53.280 --> 00:23:58.130
  • AND HE BINDS UP THE BROKEN HEARTS.
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:24:00.230
  • DO YOU KNOW HOW HE BINDS UP THE BROKEN HEARTS?
  • 00:24:00.250 --> 00:24:02.270
  • REMEMBER THE WEEPING SINNER WOMAN WHO CAME IN
  • 00:24:02.290 --> 00:24:06.010
  • LUKE 7 AND WEPT AT HIS FEET, AND JESUS WAS AT
  • 00:24:06.030 --> 00:24:09.120
  • THE HOUSE OF A PHARISEE, AND HE LOOKED AT THE
  • 00:24:09.140 --> 00:24:11.220
  • PHARISEE, AND THE PHARISEE WAS THINKING IN
  • 00:24:11.240 --> 00:24:14.010
  • HIS MIND WELL, IF JESUS KNEW, IF HE'S A PROPHET
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:18.040
  • HE WOULD KNOW WHAT KIND OF WOMAN THIS IS.
  • 00:24:18.060 --> 00:24:19.220
  • OBVIOUSLY, SHE WAS A WOMAN OF ILL REPUTE IN THE TOWN.
  • 00:24:19.240 --> 00:24:23.280
  • HOW SHE FOUND HIS HOUSE, I DO NOT KNOW.
  • 00:24:24.000 --> 00:24:26.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:24:26.180 --> 00:24:29.150
  • SHE PROBABLY KNEW HIS ADDRESS BEFORE THIS.
  • 00:24:29.170 --> 00:24:31.150
  • [LAUGHTER] ANYWAY...
  • 00:24:31.170 --> 00:24:36.080
  • SHE HEARD THAT JESUS WAS IN HIS HOUSE, IN THE
  • 00:24:36.100 --> 00:24:38.270
  • PHARISEE'S HOUSE, AND SHE MADE HER WAY THERE.
  • 00:24:38.290 --> 00:24:41.030
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS SHE WEPT OVER HIS FEET,
  • 00:24:41.050 --> 00:24:44.260
  • BECAUSE IN THOSE DAYS THEY WOULD RECLINE, THEIR
  • 00:24:44.280 --> 00:24:46.260
  • FEET WOULD BE BEHIND, AND SHE WOULD COME BEHIND,
  • 00:24:46.280 --> 00:24:49.060
  • AND SHE WAS LOOKING AT THE PHARISEE AND
  • 00:24:49.080 --> 00:24:50.230
  • THE PHARISEE IS LOOKING AT HER.
  • 00:24:50.250 --> 00:24:53.140
  • AND SHE WOULD WEEP AT HIS FEET AND WIPE HIS FEET
  • 00:24:53.160 --> 00:24:56.020
  • WITH HER HAIR.
  • 00:24:56.040 --> 00:24:58.260
  • AND JESUS LOOKED AT THE PHARISEE, AND JESUS KNEW
  • 00:24:58.280 --> 00:25:01.230
  • WHAT HE WAS THINKING.
  • 00:25:01.250 --> 00:25:04.030
  • IF HE WAS A PROPHET, HE WOULD KNOW WHAT KIND OF
  • 00:25:04.050 --> 00:25:06.260
  • WOMAN THIS IS.
  • 00:25:06.280 --> 00:25:10.030
  • AND JESUS SAYS, SIMON-- THAT WAS THE NAME OF THE
  • 00:25:10.050 --> 00:25:12.160
  • PHARISEE-- I HAVE SOMETHING TO TELL YOU.
  • 00:25:12.180 --> 00:25:15.040
  • THERE WERE TWO DEBTORS.
  • 00:25:15.060 --> 00:25:18.050
  • ONE OWED A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS
  • 00:25:18.070 --> 00:25:22.100
  • AND THE OTHER OWED A HUNDRED DOLLARS.
  • 00:25:22.120 --> 00:25:25.140
  • WHEN THEY BOTH COULD NOT PAY THE CREDITOR,
  • 00:25:25.160 --> 00:25:28.030
  • HE FORGAVE THEM BOTH.
  • 00:25:28.050 --> 00:25:29.290
  • WHICH OF THE TWO DEBTORS DO YOU THINK WOULD LOVE
  • 00:25:30.010 --> 00:25:32.240
  • HIM MORE? HE'S SPEAKING THE PHARISEE'S LANGUAGE
  • 00:25:32.260 --> 00:25:37.110
  • BECAUSE HE HAD DOLLAR SIGNS IN HIS EYES.
  • 00:25:37.130 --> 00:25:40.210
  • AND THEN HE SAID WELL, I SUPPOSE THE ONE HE
  • 00:25:40.230 --> 00:25:43.130
  • FORGAVE THE MOST.
  • 00:25:43.150 --> 00:25:45.170
  • I CAME TO YOUR HOUSE, YOU GAVE ME NO CUSTOMARY
  • 00:25:45.190 --> 00:25:49.210
  • GREETING, YOU DON'T GIVE ME THE WATER TO WASH MY
  • 00:25:49.230 --> 00:25:53.220
  • FEET; BUT SINCE SHE CAME IN, SHE HAS NOT CEASED TO
  • 00:25:53.240 --> 00:25:58.120
  • WEEP ON MY FEET AND TO WIPE MY FEET WITH HER
  • 00:25:58.140 --> 00:26:02.120
  • HAIR. YOU KNOW WHY SHE DOES THAT, SIMON?
  • 00:26:02.140 --> 00:26:06.290
  • BECAUSE WHOEVER'S FORGIVEN MUCH WILL LOVE MUCH.
  • 00:26:07.010 --> 00:26:11.120
  • AND THAT'S WHAT OUR MESSAGE IS TO TELL THE WORLD
  • 00:26:11.140 --> 00:26:13.250
  • YOU ARE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:26:13.270 --> 00:26:15.200
  • IT NEEDS TO BE RECEIVED, YES, BUT YOU NEED TO TELL
  • 00:26:15.220 --> 00:26:17.170
  • THEM THEY ARE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:26:17.190 --> 00:26:20.020
  • AMEN, WE'RE ALL FORGIVEN OF OUR SINS.
  • 00:26:20.040 --> 00:26:22.110
  • IT IS BECAUSE WE THINK WE ARE FORGIVEN AS WE GO,
  • 00:26:22.130 --> 00:26:26.030
  • WE ARE FORGIVEN AS WE REPENT.
  • 00:26:26.050 --> 00:26:29.000
  • NOW TODAY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, IF I LIVED IN
  • 00:26:29.020 --> 00:26:31.070
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT, YOU HAVE TO REPENT FIRST
  • 00:26:31.090 --> 00:26:33.070
  • BEFORE GOD CAN BLESS YOU, BEFORE GOD CAN FORGIVE
  • 00:26:33.090 --> 00:26:36.200
  • YOU, BUT UNDER GRACE, GOD FORGIVES YOU ALREADY.
  • 00:26:36.220 --> 00:26:40.090
  • AND IF YOU RECEIVE THAT FORGIVENESS, THAT
  • 00:26:40.110 --> 00:26:42.100
  • FORGIVENESS WILL LEAD YOU TO CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT
  • 00:26:42.120 --> 00:26:44.280
  • WHATEVER AREAS THERE IS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:26:45.000 --> 00:26:46.260
  • THIS IS THE GOSPEL!
  • 00:26:46.280 --> 00:26:48.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:26:48.130 --> 00:26:53.170
  • AND WHY WE'RE SO AFRAID TO TELL PEOPLE THAT THEIR
  • 00:26:53.190 --> 00:26:55.200
  • SINS ARE FORGIVEN PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE?
  • 00:26:55.220 --> 00:26:58.230
  • THEY ARE!
  • 00:26:58.250 --> 00:27:00.150
  • BECAUSE WE THINK WE PREACH A MESSAGE THAT
  • 00:27:00.170 --> 00:27:02.180
  • TELLS PEOPLE THEIR SINS ARE FORGIVEN--
  • 00:27:02.200 --> 00:27:05.000
  • BY THE WAY, THAT BAD THOUGHT YOU HAD OF ME
  • 00:27:05.020 --> 00:27:06.040
  • RIGHT NOW IS FORGIVEN.
  • 00:27:06.060 --> 00:27:08.020
  • THAT WORSE THOUGHT THAT YOU HAD JUST NOW OF MATT...
  • 00:27:08.040 --> 00:27:11.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:27:11.060 --> 00:27:13.030
  • ...IS FORGIVEN.
  • 00:27:13.050 --> 00:27:14.140
  • WHAT A RELIEF WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE NO LONGER
  • 00:27:14.160 --> 00:27:17.060
  • INTROSPECTIVE AND SELF-OCCUPIED BUT
  • 00:27:17.080 --> 00:27:19.110
  • CHRIST-OCCUPIED. WHAT A LIFE!
  • 00:27:19.130 --> 00:27:21.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:27:21.160 --> 00:27:24.260
  • YOU WILL FAIL IN YOUR THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED.
  • 00:27:24.280 --> 00:27:26.170
  • I'M NOT PROPHESYING AND SOME PEOPLE DON'T LIKE TO
  • 00:27:26.190 --> 00:27:28.190
  • HEAR THAT, BUT LISTEN, THERE'S NO SINLESS PERFECTION.
  • 00:27:28.210 --> 00:27:31.150
  • YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS IN GOD'S EYES,
  • 00:27:31.170 --> 00:27:33.080
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT YOUR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:27:33.100 --> 00:27:35.040
  • IT'S A GIFT.
  • 00:27:35.060 --> 00:27:36.130
  • GOD SEES YOU RIGHTEOUS, BUT IN AND OF YOURSELF
  • 00:27:36.150 --> 00:27:38.190
  • YOU WILL STILL FAIL.
  • 00:27:38.210 --> 00:27:40.200
  • AND YOU NEED TO KNOW YOU ARE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:27:40.220 --> 00:27:45.010
  • WHEN A BAD THOUGHT COMES, JUST THANK YOU LORD,
  • 00:27:45.030 --> 00:27:47.010
  • I'M FORGIVEN.
  • 00:27:47.030 --> 00:27:48.070
  • OR YOU WORSHIP AND A BAD THOUGHT COMES, YOU DON'T
  • 00:27:48.090 --> 00:27:50.110
  • HAVE TO PUT DOWN YOUR HANDS, SIT DOWN AND
  • 00:27:50.130 --> 00:27:53.140
  • START CONFESSING, CONFESSING, CONFESSING.
  • 00:27:53.160 --> 00:27:56.010
  • YOU JUST SAY THANK YOU LORD I'M FORGIVEN, AND GO
  • 00:27:56.030 --> 00:28:02.290
  • ON WORSHIPPING THE LORD.
  • 00:28:03.010 --> 00:28:05.090
  • YOU KNOW, I LOVE THAT PORTION WHERE THE BIBLE
  • 00:28:05.110 --> 00:28:06.230
  • SAYS IN JOHN 3, COULD WE HAVE THAT VERSE SHOW
  • 00:28:06.250 --> 00:28:09.220
  • THEM. HE MUST NEED-- JOHN 4, HE MUST NEEDED
  • 00:28:09.240 --> 00:28:12.050
  • TO GO THROUGH SAMARIA.
  • 00:28:12.070 --> 00:28:14.170
  • HE NEEDED TO GO THROUGH SAMARIA.
  • 00:28:14.190 --> 00:28:18.060
  • IF YOU STUDY THE TOPOGRAPHY, THE JEWS OF
  • 00:28:18.080 --> 00:28:21.250
  • HIS DAY WERE AROUND THE RIVER JORDAN. GOING
  • 00:28:21.270 --> 00:28:25.110
  • NORTHWARD WAS GALILEE.
  • 00:28:25.130 --> 00:28:27.140
  • YOU WERE THERE AT GALILEE. FROM JERUSALEM
  • 00:28:27.160 --> 00:28:30.040
  • YOU WOULD NORTHWARD.
  • 00:28:30.060 --> 00:28:31.160
  • MOST OF THE THEM, THEY WOULD BYPASS SAMARIA, BUT
  • 00:28:31.180 --> 00:28:35.000
  • JESUS-- BECAUSE THE JEWS HAVE NO DEALINGS WITH
  • 00:28:35.020 --> 00:28:37.020
  • SAMARITANS IN THOSE DAYS.
  • 00:28:37.040 --> 00:28:39.280
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS NEEDED TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:28:40.000 --> 00:28:44.010
  • SAMARIA. WAS IT A TOPOGRAPHICAL NEED?
  • 00:28:44.030 --> 00:28:48.210
  • WAS IT A CONVENIENT WAY?
  • 00:28:48.230 --> 00:28:50.280
  • NO. IT WAS A NEED OF GRACE.
  • 00:28:51.000 --> 00:28:54.140
  • THERE WAS A SINNER WAITING FOR HIM.
  • 00:28:54.160 --> 00:28:57.090
  • SO HE NEEDED TO GO THROUGH SAMARIA
  • 00:28:57.110 --> 00:28:59.250
  • FOR THAT ONE WOMAN.
  • 00:28:59.270 --> 00:29:02.150
  • NOW THIS JOHN CHAPTER 4, THE BIBLE SAYS HE CAME TO
  • 00:29:02.170 --> 00:29:08.160
  • A CITY OF SAMARIA WHICH IS CALLED SYCHAR, NEAR THE
  • 00:29:08.180 --> 00:29:10.260
  • PLOTTED GROUND JACOB GAVE TO HIS SON JOSEPH.
  • 00:29:10.280 --> 00:29:13.050
  • THIS IS THE ONLY TIME JOSEPH OF THE OLD
  • 00:29:13.070 --> 00:29:14.280
  • TESTAMENT APPEARS IN THE BIBLE, AND JACOB GAVE
  • 00:29:15.000 --> 00:29:18.030
  • THIS PLOT OF LAND TO JOSEPH.
  • 00:29:18.050 --> 00:29:19.280
  • YOU KNOW WHY THIS IS SIGNIFICANT?
  • 00:29:20.000 --> 00:29:21.290
  • BECAUSE THERE'S A PROPHECY IN THE BOOK OF
  • 00:29:22.010 --> 00:29:24.090
  • GENESIS WHERE JACOB BLESSED HIS SONS, AND THIS
  • 00:29:24.110 --> 00:29:27.010
  • WAS A PROPHECY THAT JOSEPH WILL BE A FRUITFUL
  • 00:29:27.030 --> 00:29:30.060
  • VINE, A FRUITFUL BOW AND HIS BRANCHES WILL GO OVER
  • 00:29:30.080 --> 00:29:33.220
  • THE WALL OF THE GENTILES, AND HE WILL, LISTEN, HE
  • 00:29:33.240 --> 00:29:36.240
  • WILL BE BY THE WELL. THAT WAS A PROPHECY.
  • 00:29:36.260 --> 00:29:38.270
  • HE IS A FRUITFUL VINE BY THE WELL.
  • 00:29:38.290 --> 00:29:43.110
  • IT WAS A PROPHECY OF THE GREATEST SON WHO WILL
  • 00:29:43.130 --> 00:29:46.280
  • COME AS OUR HEAVENLY JOSEPH AND SIT DOWN
  • 00:29:47.000 --> 00:29:50.070
  • THERE, AND HIS GRACE AND LOVE WILL REACH OVER THE
  • 00:29:50.090 --> 00:29:52.210
  • WALL OF PARTITION.
  • 00:29:52.230 --> 00:29:55.100
  • SO THERE HE WAS SEATED DOWN THERE, AND I LOVE,
  • 00:29:55.120 --> 00:29:58.060
  • YOU SEE JOHN 4 COMES AFTER JOHN 3.
  • 00:29:58.080 --> 00:30:00.230
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:30:00.250 --> 00:30:03.260
  • I NEED TO SAY THAT FOR THE BENEFIT OF MATT.
  • 00:30:03.280 --> 00:30:05.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:30:05.240 --> 00:30:09.240
  • WHAT HAPPENED IN JOHN 3?
  • 00:30:09.260 --> 00:30:11.280
  • WE ALL KNOW JOHN 3:16, RIGHT?
  • 00:30:12.000 --> 00:30:13.120
  • FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.
  • 00:30:13.140 --> 00:30:14.210
  • HOW MANY KNOW THAT THIS VERSE IS THE MOST
  • 00:30:14.230 --> 00:30:18.000
  • MEMORIZED VERSE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST, RIGHT?
  • 00:30:18.020 --> 00:30:22.050
  • FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.
  • 00:30:22.070 --> 00:30:23.170
  • AND YET, THOSE WHO FIGHT FOR THE LORD, YOU ASK
  • 00:30:23.190 --> 00:30:25.200
  • THEM WHAT IS THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT?
  • 00:30:25.220 --> 00:30:27.200
  • [CLEARING THROAT] WELL...
  • 00:30:27.220 --> 00:30:31.230
  • WHAT IS THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT?
  • 00:30:31.250 --> 00:30:33.190
  • [CLEARING THROAT] HMMM...
  • 00:30:33.210 --> 00:30:37.270
  • SO MUCH FOR FIGHTING FOR THE COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:30:37.290 --> 00:30:40.170
  • THEY DON'T EVEN MEMORIZE THE COMMANDMENT.
  • 00:30:40.190 --> 00:30:41.220
  • YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 00:30:41.240 --> 00:30:42.290
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT DON'T HELP YOU TO MEMORIZE THE
  • 00:30:43.010 --> 00:30:44.130
  • LAW. THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS EVEN LITTLE CHILDREN TO
  • 00:30:44.150 --> 00:30:47.260
  • MEMORIZE FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE
  • 00:30:47.280 --> 00:30:50.180
  • HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES,
  • 00:30:50.200 --> 00:30:53.110
  • BECAUSE THIS IS THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:30:53.130 --> 00:30:55.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:30:55.050 --> 00:30:57.040
  • NOTHING WRONG WITH THE LAW, PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:57.060 --> 00:30:59.000
  • THE LAW IS ACCURATE. THAT'S A PROBLEM.
  • 00:30:59.020 --> 00:31:01.100
  • IF IT BENDS TO HELP YOU, IT'S NO LONGER THE LAW.
  • 00:31:01.120 --> 00:31:04.160
  • YOU SEE, I AM FOR THE PURITY OF THE LAW AND
  • 00:31:04.180 --> 00:31:07.140
  • BECAUSE I AM FOR THE COMPLETENESS OF THE LAW,
  • 00:31:07.160 --> 00:31:10.270
  • I AM FOR THE LAW FOR THE REASON GOD GAVE THE LAW.
  • 00:31:10.290 --> 00:31:13.240
  • AND GOD NEVER GAVE THE LAW TO JUSTIFY MEN BY.
  • 00:31:13.260 --> 00:31:18.080
  • SO YOU GO BACK TO JOHN 3, YOU KNOW THE STORY OF
  • 00:31:18.100 --> 00:31:20.210
  • JOHN 3. THE FIRST VERSE SAYS THERE WAS A MAN OF A
  • 00:31:20.230 --> 00:31:24.200
  • PHARISEE CALLED NICODEMUS WHO CAME TO JESUS BY
  • 00:31:24.220 --> 00:31:26.240
  • NIGHT. IN JOHN 4, JESUS CAME TO THE WOMAN.
  • 00:31:26.260 --> 00:31:31.050
  • JOHN 3, THIS PHARISEE, THIS THEOLOGIAN CAME
  • 00:31:31.070 --> 00:31:36.150
  • SEEKING OUT JESUS BY NIGHT. JOHN 4,
  • 00:31:36.170 --> 00:31:40.160
  • JESUS SOUGHT OUT THAT WOMAN IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.
  • 00:31:40.180 --> 00:31:45.050
  • IN JOHN 3, JESUS CALLS THIS MAN, AREN'T YOU A
  • 00:31:45.070 --> 00:31:49.280
  • MASTER OF ISRAEL AND YOU KNOW NOT THESE THINGS?
  • 00:31:50.000 --> 00:31:52.150
  • HE WAS A MASTER TEACHER; NOT JUST A TEACHER,
  • 00:31:52.170 --> 00:31:55.110
  • BUT A MASTER TEACHER, A RABBI OF RABBIS.
  • 00:31:55.130 --> 00:31:57.290
  • BUT FOR THAT WOMAN, HER ONLY ACHIEVEMENT IS THAT
  • 00:31:58.010 --> 00:32:00.040
  • SHE HAD HAD FIVE HUSBANDS.
  • 00:32:00.060 --> 00:32:04.030
  • FOR THIS RELIGIOUS MAN, THIS THEOLOGIAN, JESUS
  • 00:32:04.050 --> 00:32:10.050
  • USED THE LANGUAGE OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:32:10.070 --> 00:32:12.170
  • HE USED METAPHORS. HE USED TYPES IN THE
  • 00:32:12.190 --> 00:32:14.280
  • OLD TESTAMENT LIKE MOSES RAISED THE SERPENT
  • 00:32:15.000 --> 00:32:17.210
  • IN THE WILDERNESS SO MUCH THE SON OF MAN.
  • 00:32:17.230 --> 00:32:19.290
  • HE TALKED TO NICODEMUS IN TERMS OF THE BIBLE LANGUAGE.
  • 00:32:20.010 --> 00:32:22.010
  • BUT FOR THIS WOMAN, HE NEVER QUOTED ANY
  • 00:32:22.030 --> 00:32:24.000
  • SCRIPTURE VERSE FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:32:24.020 --> 00:32:27.010
  • HE USED NATURAL ILLUSTRATIONS.
  • 00:32:27.030 --> 00:32:29.210
  • HE USED WATER THAT SHE WAS DRINKING FROM.
  • 00:32:29.230 --> 00:32:32.000
  • LADY, IF YOU KNEW WHO IT WAS THAT IS TALKING WITH
  • 00:32:32.020 --> 00:32:35.230
  • YOU RIGHT NOW, YOU WOULD ASK HIM AND HE WILL
  • 00:32:35.250 --> 00:32:39.210
  • GIVE YOU LIVING WATER.
  • 00:32:39.230 --> 00:32:44.270
  • BY THE WAY, A FEW YEARS AGO, ONE OF MY TRIPS
  • 00:32:44.290 --> 00:32:48.130
  • I WENT TO SAMARIA.
  • 00:32:48.150 --> 00:32:50.030
  • YOU KNOW THE SAMARITANS ARE STILL THERE?
  • 00:32:50.050 --> 00:32:52.160
  • IT'S A SMALL NUMBER NOW, BUT THEY EVEN HAVE A HIGH
  • 00:32:52.180 --> 00:32:55.160
  • PRIEST. SO I MET THE BROTHER OF THE HIGH PRIEST.
  • 00:32:55.180 --> 00:32:59.060
  • SO HE BROUGHT ME AND MY PASTORS INTO HIS SPECIAL
  • 00:32:59.080 --> 00:33:01.270
  • CHAMBER, AND THEY HAVE THIS LIST OF ALL THE HIGH
  • 00:33:01.290 --> 00:33:06.160
  • PRIESTS FROM ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE TIME OF
  • 00:33:06.180 --> 00:33:09.210
  • JESUS, EVEN BEFORE JESUS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:33:09.230 --> 00:33:12.290
  • THEY KEEP FAITHFULLY THE LIST.
  • 00:33:13.010 --> 00:33:16.060
  • SO I ASK HIM CAN YOU TELL ME WHICH HIGH PRIEST IT
  • 00:33:16.080 --> 00:33:21.010
  • WAS WHEN JESUS WAS HERE?
  • 00:33:21.030 --> 00:33:23.050
  • OH, HE SAYS, LET ME CHECK.
  • 00:33:23.070 --> 00:33:25.090
  • HE LOOKED IT UP.
  • 00:33:25.110 --> 00:33:26.180
  • OH YES, IT WAS THE 49TH HIGH PRIEST.
  • 00:33:26.200 --> 00:33:32.210
  • JESUS IS NUMBER 50, NUMBER OF JUBILEE.
  • 00:33:32.230 --> 00:33:37.270
  • NOT ONLY THAT, I ASK HIM WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE
  • 00:33:37.290 --> 00:33:39.250
  • HIGH PRIEST? HE SAYS HIS NAME IS JONATHAN
  • 00:33:39.270 --> 00:33:42.210
  • WHICH MEANS JONATHAN. BEAUTIFUL NAME.
  • 00:33:42.230 --> 00:33:45.000
  • THE NAME JONATHAN MEANS THE GIFT OF GOD.
  • 00:33:45.020 --> 00:33:47.020
  • AND JESUS TOLD THE WOMAN, WHOSE HIGH PRIEST THEN
  • 00:33:47.040 --> 00:33:49.190
  • WAS JONATHAN, WHICH MEANS THE GIFT OF GOD.
  • 00:33:49.210 --> 00:33:52.040
  • HE LOOKS AT HER AND SAID IF YOU REALLY KNEW WHO
  • 00:33:52.060 --> 00:33:54.140
  • THE HIGH PRIEST WAS, IF YOU REALLY KNEW THE GIFT
  • 00:33:54.160 --> 00:33:57.120
  • OF GOD, IF YOU REALLY KNEW THE JONATHAN, YOU
  • 00:33:57.140 --> 00:34:02.030
  • WOULD ASK HIM AND HE WOULD GIVE YOU LIVING WATER.
  • 00:34:02.050 --> 00:34:05.280
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:34:06.000 --> 00:34:11.190
  • TO THE THEOLOGIAN, ISN'T THIS FAMILIAR?
  • 00:34:11.210 --> 00:34:16.070
  • TODAY I KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CRITICIZED
  • 00:34:16.090 --> 00:34:17.270
  • BECAUSE THEY DON'T USE BIBLE JARGON ALL THE TIME
  • 00:34:17.290 --> 00:34:20.120
  • OR USE METAPHORS, RIGHT JOEL?
  • 00:34:20.140 --> 00:34:23.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:34:24.000 --> 00:34:25.270
  • THE BIBLE SAYS COMMON PEOPLE HURT JESUS GLADLY.
  • 00:34:25.290 --> 00:34:28.190
  • YOU KNOW WHO IS NOT TOO HAPPY WITH JESUS?
  • 00:34:28.210 --> 00:34:30.130
  • THE THEOLOGIANS.
  • 00:34:30.150 --> 00:34:32.250
  • DO YOU HAVE THIS KIND OF MINISTRY?
  • 00:34:32.270 --> 00:34:36.060
  • IF YOU DON'T, SOMETHING'S WRONG.
  • 00:34:36.080 --> 00:34:38.110
  • YOUR MINISTRY IS NOT LIKE JESUS.
  • 00:34:38.130 --> 00:34:41.040
  • JOEL, YOU BETTER REPENT.
  • 00:34:41.060 --> 00:34:43.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:34:43.060 --> 00:34:46.190
  • FOR THIS THEOLOGIAN, JESUS SAID TO HIM THIS IS
  • 00:34:46.210 --> 00:34:49.190
  • WHAT JESUS SAID TO HIM.
  • 00:34:49.210 --> 00:34:51.210
  • WITH ALL YOUR ERUDITE LEARNING, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:34:51.230 --> 00:34:57.190
  • BUT JESUS NEVER SAID TO THE SAMARITAN WOMAN, THAT
  • 00:34:57.210 --> 00:34:59.280
  • SINNER WOMAN YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:35:00.020 --> 00:35:04.190
  • HE JUST LOVED ON HER.
  • 00:35:04.210 --> 00:35:07.030
  • FOR THIS THEOLOGIAN, HE ALMOST INSULTED HIM.
  • 00:35:07.050 --> 00:35:10.080
  • HE SAYS ARE YOU A MASTER IN ISRAEL, YOU DO NOT
  • 00:35:10.100 --> 00:35:12.000
  • KNOW THESE THINGS?
  • 00:35:12.020 --> 00:35:14.100
  • BUT FOR THAT WOMAN-- PASTOR PRINCE, HE DID
  • 00:35:14.120 --> 00:35:16.220
  • REVEAL HER SIN. NOW LET ME EXPLAIN THIS.
  • 00:35:16.240 --> 00:35:20.070
  • YOU KNOW SOMETHING, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH
  • 00:35:20.090 --> 00:35:22.120
  • YOU ARE LOVED, YOU'LL NEVER FEEL LOVED IF YOU
  • 00:35:22.140 --> 00:35:25.250
  • THINK THE ONE TALKING WITH YOU DOES NOT KNOW
  • 00:35:25.270 --> 00:35:28.030
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU WHEN HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:35:28.050 --> 00:35:31.020
  • BUT WHEN YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU KNOW THAT HE KNOWS
  • 00:35:31.040 --> 00:35:34.130
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU AND HE STILL TAKES TIME TO
  • 00:35:34.150 --> 00:35:37.070
  • TALK TO YOU AND LOVE YOU, YOU ARE LOVED.
  • 00:35:37.090 --> 00:35:40.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:35:40.090 --> 00:35:43.120
  • AND THAT'S WHY THE VERY SIN THAT BRINGS OUT
  • 00:35:43.140 --> 00:35:46.010
  • JESUS' ANGER IS A SIN OF HYPOCRISY.
  • 00:35:46.030 --> 00:35:52.150
  • WHAT IS HYPOCRISY?
  • 00:35:52.170 --> 00:35:54.030
  • PRETENDING TO BE WHAT YOU ARE NOT.
  • 00:35:54.050 --> 00:35:56.220
  • NOW, WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:35:56.240 --> 00:36:00.290
  • AND YOU SAY NO, I'M NOT RIGHTEOUS, I'M--
  • 00:36:01.010 --> 00:36:02.220
  • I'M JUST A SINNER.
  • 00:36:02.240 --> 00:36:04.240
  • YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW BAD I AM.
  • 00:36:04.260 --> 00:36:06.070
  • NO, YOU ARE HYPOCRITE!
  • 00:36:06.090 --> 00:36:09.040
  • YOU ARE PRETENDING TO BE WHAT YOU ARE NOT.
  • 00:36:09.060 --> 00:36:11.050
  • GOD SAYS YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:36:11.070 --> 00:36:12.160
  • GOD MADE YOU RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:36:12.180 --> 00:36:13.240
  • WHAT GOD HAS CLEANSED DON'T YOU DARE CALL
  • 00:36:13.260 --> 00:36:15.120
  • UNCLEAN, NOT EVEN YOURSELF!
  • 00:36:15.140 --> 00:36:17.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:36:17.050 --> 00:36:20.180
  • GIVE HONOR TO THE BLOOD OF JESUS BY STANDING TALL
  • 00:36:20.200 --> 00:36:23.100
  • IN THE MIRROR AND SAYING I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:36:23.120 --> 00:36:25.130
  • OF GOD IN CHRIST.
  • 00:36:25.150 --> 00:36:27.000
  • ONE OF THESE DAYS I'M GONNA WRITE A BOOK CALLED
  • 00:36:27.020 --> 00:36:28.200
  • I AM.
  • 00:36:28.220 --> 00:36:30.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:36:30.030 --> 00:36:34.280
  • THAT PHARISEE, NICODEMUS, HE BECAME A DISCIPLE OF
  • 00:36:35.000 --> 00:36:43.210
  • JESUS. FINALLY WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS, IT WAS
  • 00:36:43.230 --> 00:36:46.100
  • HIM AND JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA THAT CAME AND
  • 00:36:46.120 --> 00:36:49.010
  • BURIED JESUS. REMEMBER THAT?
  • 00:36:49.030 --> 00:36:51.200
  • BUT HIS PROGRESS WAS SLOW, WASN'T IT?
  • 00:36:51.220 --> 00:36:54.290
  • HE WAS STILL ASHAMED OF JESUS HIDING
  • 00:36:55.010 --> 00:36:58.180
  • BEHIND THE PHARISEES AND ALL THAT, FINALLY WHEN
  • 00:36:58.200 --> 00:37:00.230
  • JESUS DIED HE CAME UP FRONT.
  • 00:37:00.250 --> 00:37:02.200
  • BUT THAT WOMAN, ONE HOUR WITH JESUS, AT FIRST LOOK
  • 00:37:02.220 --> 00:37:08.150
  • AT THAT PROGRESS. WHAT A FAST PROGRESS.
  • 00:37:08.170 --> 00:37:10.120
  • FIRST SHE CALLED HIM AREN'T YOU A JEW?
  • 00:37:10.140 --> 00:37:13.060
  • WHY DO YOU SPEAK WITH ME, A SAMARITAN?
  • 00:37:13.080 --> 00:37:14.240
  • SHE CALLS HIM A JEW.
  • 00:37:14.260 --> 00:37:16.080
  • THEN SHE SAYS SIR, YOU HAVE NO BUCKET TO DRAW
  • 00:37:16.100 --> 00:37:19.100
  • THE WATER WITH. CALLED HIM A SIR. RIGHT?
  • 00:37:19.120 --> 00:37:23.190
  • THEN SHE CALLS HIM I PERCEIVE YOU ARE A PROPHET.
  • 00:37:23.210 --> 00:37:27.090
  • BECAUSE HE SAYS GO CALL YOUR HUSBAND HERE.
  • 00:37:27.110 --> 00:37:28.280
  • I HAVE NO HUSBAND.
  • 00:37:29.000 --> 00:37:30.050
  • JESUS SAYS YOU'RE RIGHT, YOU HAD FIVE HUSBANDS,
  • 00:37:30.070 --> 00:37:32.040
  • AND THE ONE YOU ARE LIVING WITH
  • 00:37:32.060 --> 00:37:33.140
  • IS NOT YOUR HUSBAND.
  • 00:37:33.160 --> 00:37:36.060
  • YOU KNOW HOW JESUS SAID IT WITH SUCH TACT.
  • 00:37:36.080 --> 00:37:38.150
  • WHEN JESUS REVEALED HER SIN, LIKE I TOLD YOU JUST
  • 00:37:38.170 --> 00:37:40.250
  • NOW, SO SHE WOULD FEEL LOVED KNOWING THAT HE
  • 00:37:40.270 --> 00:37:43.030
  • KNOWS ALL ABOUT HER.
  • 00:37:43.050 --> 00:37:45.180
  • HE DID IT WITH SUCH DIVINE SKILLFULNESS.
  • 00:37:45.200 --> 00:37:47.290
  • FIRST OF ALL, HE PRAISED HER.
  • 00:37:48.010 --> 00:37:49.240
  • HE SAID YOU HAVE SAID WELL IN THE GREEK KALOS.
  • 00:37:49.260 --> 00:37:52.180
  • YOU HAVE SAID IT BEAUTIFULLY.
  • 00:37:52.200 --> 00:37:55.030
  • YOU HAVE NO HUSBAND.
  • 00:37:55.050 --> 00:37:57.240
  • YOU HAVE HAD FIVE HUSBANDS, AND THE ONE
  • 00:37:57.260 --> 00:37:59.180
  • THAT YOU ARE LIVING WITH IS NOT YOUR HUSBAND.
  • 00:37:59.200 --> 00:38:01.270
  • THAT HE SANDWICH IT LIKE THIS: HE PRAISE HER, THEN
  • 00:38:01.290 --> 00:38:05.040
  • HE REVEAL TO HER HER SIN, THEN HE SANDWICH IT WITH
  • 00:38:05.060 --> 00:38:07.190
  • IN THAT YOU SAY TRULY.
  • 00:38:07.210 --> 00:38:10.130
  • YOU HAVE SPOKEN THE TRUTH.
  • 00:38:10.150 --> 00:38:14.070
  • AND SHE SAYS I PERCEIVE YOU ARE A PROPHET.
  • 00:38:14.090 --> 00:38:16.190
  • NOW FROM JEW TO SIR, PROPHET.
  • 00:38:16.210 --> 00:38:20.200
  • FINALLY, SHE SAID I KNOW WHEN THE MESSIAH COMES
  • 00:38:20.220 --> 00:38:23.220
  • HE WILL REVEAL TO US ALL THINGS.
  • 00:38:23.240 --> 00:38:25.240
  • JESUS LOOK AT HER AND SAID I WHO SPEAK
  • 00:38:25.260 --> 00:38:27.230
  • UNTO YOU, I AM HE.
  • 00:38:27.250 --> 00:38:31.220
  • TO THE THEOLOGIAN, JESUS NEVER SAID I'M THE
  • 00:38:31.240 --> 00:38:35.100
  • MESSIAH. BUT TO THE WOMAN, JESUS SAYS I AM HE.
  • 00:38:35.120 --> 00:38:39.270
  • NOW LOOK AT THE PROGRESS.
  • 00:38:39.290 --> 00:38:41.230
  • ONE HOUR WITH JESUS AND SHE RAN INTO THE CITY.
  • 00:38:41.250 --> 00:38:45.000
  • YOU KNOW WHY SHE CAME THERE AT NOONTIME?
  • 00:38:45.020 --> 00:38:47.190
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THE SIXTH HOUR AT NOONTIME WHEN
  • 00:38:47.210 --> 00:38:49.180
  • IT'S REALLY HOT?
  • 00:38:49.200 --> 00:38:50.270
  • MOST WOMEN WOULD DRAW WATER WHEN IT'S COLD IN
  • 00:38:50.290 --> 00:38:52.280
  • THE MORNING, COOL IN THE MORNING OR IN THE
  • 00:38:53.000 --> 00:38:55.110
  • EVENING, BUT SHE WENT THERE IN THE AFTERNOON.
  • 00:38:55.130 --> 00:38:57.080
  • WHY? BECAUSE OF HER REPUTATION.
  • 00:38:57.100 --> 00:38:59.220
  • SHE WAS ASHAMED AND SHE WANTED TO AVOID
  • 00:38:59.240 --> 00:39:02.000
  • ALL THE GOSSIPERS.
  • 00:39:02.020 --> 00:39:03.280
  • AND THERE SHE WENT THAT DAY AND JESUS WAS
  • 00:39:04.000 --> 00:39:06.250
  • WAITING AT THE WELL.
  • 00:39:06.270 --> 00:39:10.050
  • THE PROPHECY, HE'LL BE A FRUITFUL VINE SITTING BY
  • 00:39:10.070 --> 00:39:13.240
  • THE WELL WHOSE BRANCHES GO OVER THE WALL.
  • 00:39:13.260 --> 00:39:17.080
  • BUT LOOK AT HER NOW.
  • 00:39:17.100 --> 00:39:20.080
  • ONE HOUR WITH JESUS AND SHE RAN INTO A CITY
  • 00:39:20.100 --> 00:39:22.140
  • AND SAYS COME, COME!
  • 00:39:22.160 --> 00:39:23.280
  • SEE A MAN WHO TOLD ME EVERYTHING ABOUT ME,
  • 00:39:24.000 --> 00:39:26.030
  • ABOUT MYSELF! ISN'T THIS THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:39:26.050 --> 00:39:29.160
  • SHE BECAME AN INSTANT EVANGELIST.
  • 00:39:29.180 --> 00:39:31.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:39:31.180 --> 00:39:37.220
  • YOU KNOW WHAT IS THE MESSAGE THAT WE ARE
  • 00:39:37.240 --> 00:39:40.000
  • PREACHING. WE ARE PREACHING MIXTURE.
  • 00:39:40.020 --> 00:39:44.270
  • JESUS SAID YOU CANNOT PUT NEW WINE, SAY NEW WINE...
  • 00:39:44.290 --> 00:39:49.190
  • INTO OLD BOTTLES. SAY OLD BOTTLES.
  • 00:39:49.210 --> 00:39:52.280
  • NOW ONE OF THE THINGS YOU LEARN IN ISRAEL IS THAT
  • 00:39:53.000 --> 00:39:54.140
  • THE BOTTLES ARE MADE OF GOAT SKIN.
  • 00:39:54.160 --> 00:39:57.120
  • SO AFTER SOME TIME, THEY GET BRITTLE.
  • 00:39:57.140 --> 00:39:59.260
  • WHEN IT'S BRITTLE, THEY GET HARD.
  • 00:39:59.280 --> 00:40:02.010
  • I MEAN, IT'S SO HARD IT CAN KNOCK MATT UNCONSCIOUS.
  • 00:40:02.030 --> 00:40:04.050
  • I MEAN, IT IS THAT HARD, OKAY?
  • 00:40:04.070 --> 00:40:06.090
  • IT BECOMES BRITTLE, AND JESUS SAID YOU CANNOT
  • 00:40:06.110 --> 00:40:08.220
  • PUT NEW WINE, NEW WINE, INTO OLD WINE SKINS.
  • 00:40:08.240 --> 00:40:12.290
  • AMEN? WHY? BECAUSE THE NEW WINE WILL FERMENT AND
  • 00:40:13.010 --> 00:40:16.220
  • BECAUSE OF THE BRITTLENESS OF THE GOAT
  • 00:40:16.240 --> 00:40:19.020
  • SKIN, IT WILL BREAK. NOW YOU LOSE BOTH.
  • 00:40:19.040 --> 00:40:21.150
  • NOW, WE USE THAT FOR CHURCH STRUCTURE.
  • 00:40:21.170 --> 00:40:23.230
  • WE NEED A NEW WINE SKIN.
  • 00:40:23.250 --> 00:40:25.190
  • WE NEED A NEW WINE SKIN.
  • 00:40:25.210 --> 00:40:27.080
  • IT'S OKAY TO USE THAT.
  • 00:40:27.100 --> 00:40:28.230
  • PERHAPS IT'S A SECONDARY APPLICATION,
  • 00:40:28.250 --> 00:40:30.290
  • BUT IN THE CONTEXT, JESUS IS SAYING YOU
  • 00:40:31.010 --> 00:40:33.010
  • CANNOT PUT GRACE INTO THE CONTEXT OF LAW.
  • 00:40:33.030 --> 00:40:36.000
  • YOU CANNOT MIX LAW AND GRACE.
  • 00:40:36.020 --> 00:40:39.110
  • YOU WILL LOSE BOTH.
  • 00:40:39.130 --> 00:40:41.130
  • YOU WILL LOSE THE SEVERITY OF THE LAW,
  • 00:40:41.150 --> 00:40:43.190
  • AND YOU WILL LOSE THE FREENESS OF GRACE. AMEN.
  • 00:40:43.210 --> 00:40:50.010
  • WHAT A WONDERFUL SAVIOR WE SERVE. DO YOU LOVE HIM?
  • 00:40:50.030 --> 00:40:54.210
  • - YES.
  • 00:40:54.230 --> 00:40:56.240
  • - HE HAS SAID TO THE CHURCH OF EPHESUS, "YOU
  • 00:40:56.260 --> 00:40:58.280
  • HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE." FIRST LOVE,
  • 00:40:59.000 --> 00:41:00.230
  • PROPUS, PROTUS, PROTOTYPE.
  • 00:41:00.250 --> 00:41:05.100
  • FIRST LOVE. WHAT IS FIRST LOVE?
  • 00:41:05.120 --> 00:41:07.040
  • WE SAY FIRST LOVE IS MY LOVE FOR GOD.
  • 00:41:07.060 --> 00:41:08.290
  • HUH-HUH, HE FIRST LOVED YOU, AND HE'S TELLING
  • 00:41:09.010 --> 00:41:12.250
  • THE CHURCH YOU HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE.
  • 00:41:12.270 --> 00:41:15.180
  • AND HE SAYS, I KNOW YOUR WORKS, YOUR LABOR,
  • 00:41:15.200 --> 00:41:18.240
  • YOUR PATIENCE, RIGHT?
  • 00:41:18.260 --> 00:41:22.120
  • BUT MISSING IN THAT CHURCH WAS THIS, FAITH,
  • 00:41:22.140 --> 00:41:24.210
  • LABOR OF LOVE, PATIENCE OF HOPE.
  • 00:41:24.230 --> 00:41:29.050
  • LABOR OF LOVE, PATIENCE, AND HOPE AND
  • 00:41:29.070 --> 00:41:31.000
  • FAITH AND LOVE WAS MISSING.
  • 00:41:31.020 --> 00:41:33.020
  • SO ANY MINISTRY THAT JUST FOCUSES ON LABOR
  • 00:41:33.040 --> 00:41:35.290
  • AND PERFORMANCE BUT NOT PRODUCE FAITH, HOPE,
  • 00:41:36.010 --> 00:41:39.220
  • AND LOVE LIKE THE MINISTRIES OF JOEL HERE
  • 00:41:39.240 --> 00:41:43.100
  • AND CHRISTINE AND MANY OTHERS THAT I KNOW, GOD
  • 00:41:43.120 --> 00:41:46.090
  • IS RAISING WHOLE NEW GENERATION.
  • 00:41:46.110 --> 00:41:48.150
  • THE END RESULT OF NEW TESTAMENT PREACHING IS
  • 00:41:48.170 --> 00:41:51.160
  • THAT IT LEAVES FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE IN YOUR
  • 00:41:51.180 --> 00:41:53.110
  • HEART, AMEN?
  • 00:41:53.130 --> 00:41:55.190
  • ANYTHING ELSE IS NOT -- YOU KNOW, YOU TALK
  • 00:41:55.210 --> 00:41:58.030
  • ABOUT SIN. WHAT IS SIN? HOW DOES GOD DEFINE SIN?
  • 00:41:58.050 --> 00:42:00.230
  • AMEN. HOW DOES GOD DESIGN SIN?
  • 00:42:00.250 --> 00:42:03.160
  • WHATEVER'S NOT OF FAITH IS SIN, RIGHT? AMEN?
  • 00:42:03.180 --> 00:42:12.150
  • BUT WE LOOK AT THE OUTWARD SIN, AND WE
  • 00:42:12.170 --> 00:42:16.000
  • LABEL THAT AS SIN, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, PEOPLE?
  • 00:42:16.020 --> 00:42:18.140
  • IF WE ARE SIN CONSCIOUS, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:42:18.160 --> 00:42:21.060
  • WE'LL NEVER, EVER, EVER COME TO THE PLACE WHERE
  • 00:42:21.080 --> 00:42:22.260
  • BOLDNESS TOWARDS GOD.
  • 00:42:22.280 --> 00:42:24.250
  • LOVE IS NOT US LOVING GOD.
  • 00:42:24.270 --> 00:42:27.040
  • IT IS GOD LOVING US.
  • 00:42:27.060 --> 00:42:28.250
  • LOOK AT THIS VERSE IN I JOHN:
  • 00:42:28.270 --> 00:42:34.130
  • NOT THAT WE LOVE
  • 00:42:34.150 --> 00:42:37.000
  • GOD, NOT THAT WE LOVE GOD. WAIT A MINUTE.
  • 00:42:37.020 --> 00:42:39.060
  • ISN'T THIS THE SUM TOTAL OF THE COMMANDMENTS AND
  • 00:42:39.080 --> 00:42:42.230
  • THE LAW? ISN'T THIS THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT OF ALL,
  • 00:42:42.250 --> 00:42:45.100
  • "THOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH
  • 00:42:45.120 --> 00:42:47.110
  • ALL THY HEART, ALL THY SOUL, ALL THY MIND, ALL
  • 00:42:47.130 --> 00:42:49.030
  • THY STRENGTH"?
  • 00:42:49.050 --> 00:42:50.290
  • ISN'T THIS THE GREATEST OF ALL COMMANDMENTS?
  • 00:42:51.010 --> 00:42:53.000
  • AND YET, JOHN, BY THE SPIRIT, WROTE THIS.
  • 00:42:53.020 --> 00:42:55.280
  • THIS IS LOVE, NOT THAT WE LOVE GOD, BUT THAT
  • 00:42:56.000 --> 00:42:59.170
  • HE LOVED US.
  • 00:42:59.190 --> 00:43:02.150
  • SO WHY DID GOD GIVE THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT,
  • 00:43:02.170 --> 00:43:04.170
  • WHY DID GOD GIVE US THE COMMANDMENT YOU SHALL
  • 00:43:04.190 --> 00:43:06.080
  • LOVE GOD -- BECAUSE HE WANTED TO SHOW US UP
  • 00:43:06.100 --> 00:43:08.050
  • BIT LAW IS THE KNOWLEDGE OF SIN.
  • 00:43:08.070 --> 00:43:10.020
  • HE WANTED TO SHOW YOU AND I FOR 1500 YEARS HE
  • 00:43:10.040 --> 00:43:12.220
  • PUT MEN UNDER THE LAW.
  • 00:43:12.240 --> 00:43:14.150
  • NOW LOVE ME ALL OF YOUR HEART, AND MAN COULD NOT.
  • 00:43:14.170 --> 00:43:16.130
  • EVEN THE BEST OF THEM, DAVID, FAILED.
  • 00:43:16.150 --> 00:43:19.250
  • AFTER 1500 YEARS OF BEING UNDER THE LAW,
  • 00:43:19.270 --> 00:43:21.200
  • GOD SAYS ENOUGH.
  • 00:43:21.220 --> 00:43:24.070
  • FOR SOME OF US, IT IS NOT ENOUGH YET.
  • 00:43:24.090 --> 00:43:27.270
  • HE SAYS AFTER 1500, THEN HE SAYS I WILL
  • 00:43:27.290 --> 00:43:30.130
  • LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART, ALL MY SOUL, ALL
  • 00:43:30.150 --> 00:43:33.120
  • MY STRENGTH, AND HE GAVE HIS LIFE.
  • 00:43:33.140 --> 00:43:36.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:36.250 --> 00:43:39.090
  • SO NOW WE LOVE NOT BECAUSE,
  • 00:43:39.110 --> 00:43:41.170
  • LISTEN, NOT BECAUSE WE LOVE.
  • 00:43:41.190 --> 00:43:43.170
  • IT IS NOT LOVE THAT WE LOVE GOD, BUT WE LOVE
  • 00:43:43.190 --> 00:43:45.060
  • BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US.
  • 00:43:45.080 --> 00:43:49.140
  • SO THE PULPIT IS A PLACE NOT FOR SAYING
  • 00:43:49.160 --> 00:43:51.260
  • YOU HAVE TO LOVE GOD MORE.
  • 00:43:51.280 --> 00:43:53.210
  • YOU HAVE TO LOVE GOD MORE.
  • 00:43:53.230 --> 00:43:55.000
  • I TRIED THAT WHEN I WAS A YOUTH PASTOR.
  • 00:43:55.020 --> 00:43:56.110
  • REMEMBER YEARS AGO IN MY YOUTH MINISTRY,
  • 00:43:56.130 --> 00:43:58.050
  • I WOULD TELL THEM, UP TO LOVE GOD, PEOPLE.
  • 00:43:58.070 --> 00:44:00.030
  • YOU DON'T LOVE GOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:44:00.050 --> 00:44:01.170
  • THE REASON YOU ARE DOING WHAT YOU ARE
  • 00:44:01.190 --> 00:44:02.250
  • DOING IS BECAUSE YOU DON'T LOVE GOD!
  • 00:44:02.270 --> 00:44:04.060
  • [YELLING]
  • 00:44:04.080 --> 00:44:06.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:06.080 --> 00:44:09.260
  • YOU GOT TO LOVE GOD!
  • 00:44:09.280 --> 00:44:11.270
  • AND ALL THE WHILE, I WAS SAYING THIS IN MY
  • 00:44:11.290 --> 00:44:13.090
  • HEART, HOW DO I DO THAT?
  • 00:44:13.110 --> 00:44:14.250
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:14.270 --> 00:44:16.110
  • I WASN'T REALLY IN LOVE WITH GOD, BUT I'M
  • 00:44:16.130 --> 00:44:18.110
  • TELLING YOU RIGHT NOW, I'M IN LOVE WITH JESUS.
  • 00:44:18.130 --> 00:44:27.090
  • GOD TOLD ABRAHAM -- MANY OF YOU SAW THE
  • 00:44:27.110 --> 00:44:31.090
  • TEMPLE MOUNT WHERE THE DOME OF THE ROCK IS NOW.
  • 00:44:31.110 --> 00:44:34.170
  • WELL, GOD TALKED TO ABRAHAM ABOUT THAT MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:44:34.190 --> 00:44:36.180
  • GOD SAYS, ABRAHAM, TAKE YOUR SON, YOUR ONLY
  • 00:44:36.200 --> 00:44:39.150
  • SON, THE SON THAT YOU LOVE.
  • 00:44:39.170 --> 00:44:43.090
  • WELL, GOD WAS REALLY PUSHING IT.
  • 00:44:43.110 --> 00:44:45.130
  • TAKE YOUR SON, YOUR ONLY SON, THE SON
  • 00:44:45.150 --> 00:44:47.090
  • THAT YOU LOVE...
  • 00:44:47.110 --> 00:44:49.290
  • BUT WAIT A MINUTE, ABRAHAM HAD TWO SONS.
  • 00:44:50.010 --> 00:44:52.270
  • THE OTHER WAS ISHMAEL.
  • 00:44:52.290 --> 00:44:54.290
  • WHY DID GOD SAY TAKE YOUR SON, YOUR ONLY SON?
  • 00:44:55.010 --> 00:44:57.130
  • WHAT WAS GOD THINKING OF?
  • 00:44:57.150 --> 00:44:59.150
  • GOD WAS THINKING OF HIS SON, HIS ONLY SON, THE
  • 00:44:59.170 --> 00:45:01.190
  • SON THAT HE LOVED, WOULD BE SACRIFICED ON
  • 00:45:01.210 --> 00:45:05.020
  • THAT RANGE ON MOUNT MORIAH IS MOUNT CALVARY.
  • 00:45:05.040 --> 00:45:11.030
  • MANY HAVE BEEN THROUGH THE GARDEN TOMB.
  • 00:45:11.050 --> 00:45:13.000
  • YOU KNOW THAT THE GARDEN TOMB IS THE
  • 00:45:13.020 --> 00:45:14.180
  • HIGHEST ELEVATION OF MOUNT MORIAH?
  • 00:45:14.200 --> 00:45:17.160
  • SO I BELIEVE ISAAC TOOK THE WOOD ON HIS
  • 00:45:17.180 --> 00:45:19.250
  • BACK, AND HE WENT UP THE MOUNTAIN, LIKE
  • 00:45:19.270 --> 00:45:22.210
  • JESUS TOOK THE CROSS ON HIS BACK, AND HE
  • 00:45:22.230 --> 00:45:24.230
  • WENT UP GOLGOTHA.
  • 00:45:24.250 --> 00:45:27.020
  • BUT BEFORE HE COULD PLUNGE THE KNIFE INTO
  • 00:45:27.040 --> 00:45:32.150
  • HIS SON, GOD STOPPED HIM AND GOD SAYS, NOW I
  • 00:45:32.170 --> 00:45:35.010
  • KNOW, ABRAHAM, WITHHOLD YOUR HAND.
  • 00:45:35.030 --> 00:45:38.180
  • NOW I KNOW YOU LOVE ME BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT
  • 00:45:38.200 --> 00:45:41.160
  • WITHHELD YOUR SON, YOUR ONLY SON,
  • 00:45:41.180 --> 00:45:44.000
  • THE SON THAT YOU LOVE.
  • 00:45:44.020 --> 00:45:46.020
  • SO YOU AND I CAN TELL GOD TODAY, I KNOW NOW
  • 00:45:46.040 --> 00:45:48.100
  • YOU LOVE ME BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT WITHHELD YOUR
  • 00:45:48.120 --> 00:45:51.250
  • SON, YOUR ONLY SON, THE SON THAT YOU LOVE.
  • 00:45:51.270 --> 00:45:54.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:45:54.190 --> 00:45:59.080
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT US, PEOPLE.
  • 00:45:59.100 --> 00:46:01.070
  • ALL THE STORY IN THE BIBLE, IT'S ABOUT JESUS.
  • 00:46:01.090 --> 00:46:04.110
  • THAT'S GOSPEL IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:46:04.130 --> 00:46:08.020
  • THE BIBLE SAYS ABRAHAM LOOKED BEHIND HIM,
  • 00:46:08.040 --> 00:46:11.050
  • AND ABRAHAM SAW A RAM CAUGHT IN THE THICKET,
  • 00:46:11.070 --> 00:46:13.160
  • BUT I TELL YOU, HE SAW MORE THAN THAT.
  • 00:46:13.180 --> 00:46:15.130
  • HE SAW THE CROSS BECAUSE MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:46:15.150 --> 00:46:17.090
  • LIKE I SAID, THE HIGHEST ELEVATION IS
  • 00:46:17.110 --> 00:46:19.190
  • MOUNT CALVARY, AND HE LOOKED BEHIND HIM,
  • 00:46:19.210 --> 00:46:22.200
  • AND HE SAW JESUS ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:46:22.220 --> 00:46:24.060
  • HOW DO I KNOW THAT?
  • 00:46:24.080 --> 00:46:27.040
  • BECAUSE JESUS ONE TIME THE PHARISEES WERE
  • 00:46:27.060 --> 00:46:29.000
  • ARGUING WITH HIM, AND THE PHARISEES SAID, YOU
  • 00:46:29.020 --> 00:46:31.030
  • KNOW, HOW DARE YOU DO ALL OF THESE THINGS.
  • 00:46:31.050 --> 00:46:34.060
  • AND JESUS SAYS, LISTEN, ABRAHAM REJOICED
  • 00:46:34.080 --> 00:46:36.230
  • TO SEE MY DAY. AND THEY SAID, YOU SAW ABRAHAM?
  • 00:46:36.250 --> 00:46:43.060
  • THEY HAD MISSED IT.
  • 00:46:43.080 --> 00:46:44.260
  • HE DIDN'T SAY HE SAW ABRAHAM.
  • 00:46:44.280 --> 00:46:47.280
  • HE SAID ABRAHAM SAW HIM. HE'S THE GREATER ONE.
  • 00:46:48.000 --> 00:46:54.040
  • THEY SAID TO HIM, YOU ARE NOT YET 50 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:46:54.060 --> 00:46:56.200
  • YOU SAW ABRAHAM?
  • 00:46:56.220 --> 00:46:58.210
  • HE SAID, LISTEN, BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM.
  • 00:46:58.230 --> 00:47:02.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:47:02.180 --> 00:47:04.210
  • SO WHEN DID ABRAHAM SEE JESUS?
  • 00:47:04.230 --> 00:47:09.060
  • ON THAT MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:47:09.080 --> 00:47:11.010
  • HE LOOKED BEHIND HIM, HE SAW THE CROSS,
  • 00:47:11.030 --> 00:47:13.220
  • THAT GOD WOULD NOT WITHHOLD HIS SON, HIS
  • 00:47:13.240 --> 00:47:15.280
  • ONLY SON, THE SON THAT HE LOVED.
  • 00:47:16.000 --> 00:47:19.090
  • WHO ARE YOU THAT GOD WOULD GIVE UP HIS SON FOR?
  • 00:47:19.110 --> 00:47:23.230
  • LADIES, YOU KNOW THIS, RIGHT?
  • 00:47:23.250 --> 00:47:25.280
  • WHEN YOU GO TO A BOUTIQUE, YOU LOOK AT A
  • 00:47:26.000 --> 00:47:28.040
  • DRESS OR WHATEVER IT IS -- THAT'S ONE TIME I
  • 00:47:28.060 --> 00:47:30.280
  • CRY OVER MY WIFE IS WHEN SHE COMES
  • 00:47:31.000 --> 00:47:32.270
  • BACK FROM SHOPPING.
  • 00:47:32.290 --> 00:47:34.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:34.240 --> 00:47:38.110
  • SORRY, JOEL.
  • 00:47:38.130 --> 00:47:39.250
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:39.270 --> 00:47:42.050
  • THAT IS STILL BUGGING ME, HOW TO EXPLAIN TO
  • 00:47:42.070 --> 00:47:44.000
  • WENDY WHEN I GO BACK.
  • 00:47:44.020 --> 00:47:45.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:45.240 --> 00:47:47.140
  • DO YOU VALUE THE MONEY YOU
  • 00:47:47.160 --> 00:47:49.110
  • HAVE, OR DO YOU VALUE THE DRESS?
  • 00:47:49.130 --> 00:47:51.090
  • IF YOU ARE WILLING TO GIVE UP YOUR MONEY FOR
  • 00:47:51.110 --> 00:47:53.050
  • THE DRESS, YOU VALUE THAT DRESS MORE, RIGHT?
  • 00:47:53.070 --> 00:47:56.170
  • GOD GAVE UP HIS SON FOR YOU.
  • 00:47:56.190 --> 00:47:59.010
  • YOU SEE, YOU'LL NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH GOD LOVES
  • 00:47:59.030 --> 00:48:01.020
  • YOU UNTIL YOU KNOW HOW MUCH GOD LOVED HIS SON
  • 00:48:01.040 --> 00:48:03.240
  • BECAUSE HE GAVE UP HIS SON FOR YOU, AND GOD
  • 00:48:03.260 --> 00:48:07.290
  • LOVED HIS SON.
  • 00:48:08.010 --> 00:48:10.060
  • JESUS SAID, EVEN MY FATHER LOVES ME.
  • 00:48:10.080 --> 00:48:12.220
  • MY FATHER NEVER LEFT ME, AND YOU KNOW SOMETHING?
  • 00:48:12.240 --> 00:48:15.080
  • THERE ARE TWO TIMES THAT THE FATHER SPLIT
  • 00:48:15.100 --> 00:48:17.130
  • THE HEAVENS, SPLIT THE CLOUDS AND SAID, THIS
  • 00:48:17.150 --> 00:48:20.140
  • IS MY BELOVED SON: ONE AT THE RIVER JORDAN
  • 00:48:20.160 --> 00:48:23.210
  • WHEN HE WAS BAPTIZED, AND THE OTHER AT MOUNT HERMON.
  • 00:48:23.230 --> 00:48:25.250
  • LET ME JUST TELL YOU THIS, ONE DAY I WAS
  • 00:48:25.270 --> 00:48:27.260
  • STUDYING THIS, AND IT HIT ME, AND THESE ARE
  • 00:48:27.280 --> 00:48:30.250
  • THE BENEFITS YOU GET WHEN YOU COME TO ISRAEL.
  • 00:48:30.270 --> 00:48:34.220
  • AT THE RIVER JORDAN WHERE THE DEAD SEA IS
  • 00:48:34.240 --> 00:48:36.190
  • IS THE LOWEST PLACE ON PLANET EARTH, ABOUT
  • 00:48:36.210 --> 00:48:39.070
  • 1400 OR MORE FEET BELOW SEA LEVEL.
  • 00:48:39.090 --> 00:48:42.010
  • MOUNT HERMON WHERE THE FATHER SAID THIS IS MY
  • 00:48:42.030 --> 00:48:44.260
  • BELOVED SON, AS WELL, IS THE HIGHEST PLACE IN
  • 00:48:44.280 --> 00:48:47.180
  • ALL ISRAEL, NEARLY 10.000 FEET.
  • 00:48:47.200 --> 00:48:49.200
  • SO IN THE LOWEST PLACES AND THE HIGHEST PLACE, AMEN?
  • 00:48:49.220 --> 00:48:54.270
  • IN THE LOWEST PLACES OF YOUR LIFE, HEAR THE
  • 00:48:54.290 --> 00:48:57.120
  • FATHER SAY, YOU ARE MY BELOVED SON.
  • 00:48:57.140 --> 00:49:01.130
  • IN YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS AND VICTORIES, HE SAYS,
  • 00:49:01.150 --> 00:49:03.260
  • YOU ARE MY BELOVED SON.
  • 00:49:03.280 --> 00:49:05.080
  • HE IS PROUD OF YOU.
  • 00:49:05.100 --> 00:49:06.290
  • BUT EVEN IN YOUR LOWEST PLACES, HE WOULD SAY,
  • 00:49:07.010 --> 00:49:08.100
  • THIS IS MY BELOVED SON.
  • 00:49:08.120 --> 00:49:09.230
  • THIS IS MY BELOVED DAUGHTER IN WHOM I AM
  • 00:49:09.250 --> 00:49:11.120
  • WELL PLEASED.
  • 00:49:11.140 --> 00:49:12.260
  • WHEN JESUS WENT TO THE WILDERNESS, THE DEVIL
  • 00:49:12.280 --> 00:49:14.240
  • SAYS, IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD, DO THIS.
  • 00:49:14.260 --> 00:49:16.180
  • IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:49:16.200 --> 00:49:18.270
  • THE COMMON THREAD IS HE SAID, IF YOU ARE THE
  • 00:49:18.290 --> 00:49:20.100
  • SON OF GOD.
  • 00:49:20.120 --> 00:49:21.240
  • I WAS READING THAT ONE DAY AND REALIZED THE
  • 00:49:21.260 --> 00:49:24.020
  • DEVIL LEFT OUT THE WORD "BELOVED." IF YOU ARE
  • 00:49:24.040 --> 00:49:26.260
  • THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:49:26.280 --> 00:49:28.150
  • BUT THE FATHER SAYS, YOU ARE MY BELOVED SON.
  • 00:49:28.170 --> 00:49:31.110
  • SO THE DEVIL LEFT OUT THE WORD "BELOVED",
  • 00:49:31.130 --> 00:49:32.230
  • YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 00:49:32.250 --> 00:49:34.180
  • BECAUSE NO TEMPTATION, NO ATTACK OF THE ENEMY
  • 00:49:34.200 --> 00:49:37.170
  • CAN BE SUCCESSFUL AGAINST YOU WHEN YOU
  • 00:49:37.190 --> 00:49:39.180
  • KNOW YOU ARE GOD'S BELOVED.
  • 00:49:39.200 --> 00:49:42.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:49:42.060 --> 00:49:44.170
  • HALLELUJAH, COME ON, CHURCH!
  • 00:49:44.190 --> 00:49:46.250
  • [AUDIENCE CHEERING]
  • 00:49:46.270 --> 00:49:49.000
  • COME ON!
  • 00:49:49.020 --> 00:49:50.190
  • [AUDIENCE CHEERING]
  • 00:49:50.210 --> 00:49:53.010
  • SO MANY PULPITS MINISTRIES AND WORSHIP
  • 00:49:53.030 --> 00:49:55.190
  • TEAMS THAT UNVEIL THE LOVE OF GOD TO TELL
  • 00:49:55.210 --> 00:49:58.060
  • PEOPLE WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:49:58.080 --> 00:49:59.250
  • ANY RELIGION CAN DO THAT, AMEN?
  • 00:49:59.270 --> 00:50:01.290
  • BUT TO UNVEIL THE LOVE OF GOD,
  • 00:50:02.010 --> 00:50:04.080
  • THAT TAKES DIVINE SKILL.
  • 00:50:04.100 --> 00:50:06.020
  • THAT TAKES THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TEACH DO
  • 00:50:06.040 --> 00:50:07.280
  • GOOD, GET GOOD; DO BAD, GET BAD; YOU DON'T NEED
  • 00:50:08.000 --> 00:50:10.000
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR THAT.
  • 00:50:10.020 --> 00:50:12.240
  • [SPEAKING IN TONGUES]
  • 00:50:12.260 --> 00:50:16.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:50:16.030 --> 00:50:17.230
  • BUT YOU NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT --
  • 00:50:17.250 --> 00:50:19.200
  • IS IT OKAY TO PRAY IN TONGUES?
  • 00:50:19.220 --> 00:50:21.000
  • - YES.
  • 00:50:21.020 --> 00:50:24.050
  • - YOU NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TEACH.
  • 00:50:24.070 --> 00:50:26.250
  • YOU CAN RECEIVE GOOD YOU DON'T DESERVE
  • 00:50:26.270 --> 00:50:29.000
  • BECAUSE ANOTHER RECEIVED ALL THE BAD
  • 00:50:29.020 --> 00:50:31.010
  • THAT HE DIDN'T DESERVE.
  • 00:50:31.030 --> 00:50:32.220
  • NOW IT'S YOURS, TAKE IT, AMEN?
  • 00:50:32.240 --> 00:50:35.180
  • SO AT THE CROSS, AT THE CROSS JESUS LOOKED UP
  • 00:50:35.200 --> 00:50:40.190
  • AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE, HE CRIED,
  • 00:50:40.210 --> 00:50:43.030
  • "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
  • 00:50:43.050 --> 00:50:46.150
  • SEARCH THE GOSPELS.
  • 00:50:46.170 --> 00:50:48.130
  • HE NEVER ADDRESSED HIS FATHER AS "MY GOD."
  • 00:50:48.150 --> 00:50:50.170
  • THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME.
  • 00:50:50.190 --> 00:50:52.050
  • IT WAS ALWAYS "MY FATHER", "THE FATHER"
  • 00:50:52.070 --> 00:50:54.100
  • "ABBA FATHER." THIS IS THE FIRST TIME HE
  • 00:50:54.120 --> 00:50:57.020
  • LOOKED UP AND SAID, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE
  • 00:50:57.040 --> 00:50:58.290
  • YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
  • 00:50:59.010 --> 00:51:00.220
  • SO THAT YOU AND I CAN SAY, MY FATHER, MY
  • 00:51:00.240 --> 00:51:03.290
  • FATHER, WHY HAVE YOU SO BLESSED ME?
  • 00:51:04.010 --> 00:51:06.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:51:06.210 --> 00:51:11.090
  • COME ON, COME ON. LET ME CLOSE WITH THIS.
  • 00:51:11.110 --> 00:51:16.020
  • LISTEN, WHEN ELIJAH TALKED FIRE DOWN FROM
  • 00:51:16.040 --> 00:51:19.060
  • HEAVEN, REMEMBER HE MADE AN ALTAR OF 12
  • 00:51:19.080 --> 00:51:21.220
  • STONES REPRESENTING THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:51:21.240 --> 00:51:24.130
  • AT THAT TIME, THEY WERE DIVIDED, YET GOD SAW
  • 00:51:24.150 --> 00:51:26.170
  • THEM AS ONE.
  • 00:51:26.190 --> 00:51:28.000
  • MAKE AN ALTAR OF 12 STONES.
  • 00:51:28.020 --> 00:51:29.290
  • THEN PUT THE SACRIFICE ON IT, AND THEN POUR
  • 00:51:30.010 --> 00:51:32.100
  • WATER AGAIN AND AGAIN AS IF TO MAKE IT HOT FOR GOD.
  • 00:51:32.120 --> 00:51:36.220
  • AND FINALLY THE FIRE CAME, BUT NOTICE THIS.
  • 00:51:36.240 --> 00:51:39.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THE FIRE CONSUMED NOT JUST THE
  • 00:51:39.070 --> 00:51:41.010
  • SACRIFICE BUT THE WOOD AND ALL THE 12 STONES
  • 00:51:41.030 --> 00:51:43.150
  • WERE COMPLETELY GONE. YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 00:51:43.170 --> 00:51:47.060
  • UNDER THE LAW, THE JUDGMENT IS GREATER
  • 00:51:47.080 --> 00:51:49.290
  • THAN THE SACRIFICE.
  • 00:51:50.010 --> 00:51:52.130
  • BUT WHEN JESUS HUNG ON THE CROSS, AND HE TOOK
  • 00:51:52.150 --> 00:51:56.200
  • YOUR SINS AND MY SINS UPON HIMSELF, AND THE
  • 00:51:56.220 --> 00:51:59.250
  • FIRE OF GOD CAME ON HIM BECAUSE OF OUR SINS,
