  • but I hadn't finishedmilking everything
  • 00:00:07.290 --> 00:00:09.192
  • out of this subject of doors.
  • 00:00:09.225 --> 00:00:10.960
  • Doors speak of opportunities.
  • 00:00:10.994 --> 00:00:13.096
  • Doors are definitive of access.
  • 00:00:13.129 --> 00:00:16.199
  • And I believe that thereare God-given opportunities
  • 00:00:16.232 --> 00:00:18.601
  • and God-given accessthat God wanted me
  • 00:00:18.635 --> 00:00:20.470
  • to preach about this year.
  • 00:00:20.503 --> 00:00:21.905
  • I had this message reallyOctober of last year
  • 00:00:21.938 --> 00:00:24.207
  • and I felt like God justwanted me to hold it
  • 00:00:24.240 --> 00:00:25.842
  • until a certain time, and thenthe first of this year came.
  • 00:00:25.875 --> 00:00:28.945
  • And I've taken the wholefirst quarter of this year
  • 00:00:28.978 --> 00:00:31.648
  • to talk about God'snew opportunities
  • 00:00:31.681 --> 00:00:34.784
  • that are only God-givenand are on His timetable.
  • 00:00:34.818 --> 00:00:37.787
  • I want to tell youmore about them.
  • 00:00:37.821 --> 00:00:39.089
  • Hang around. We'regoing to dive in.
  • 00:00:39.122 --> 00:00:40.790
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:00:40.824 --> 00:00:43.393
  • RCTV 278Message: 2-9-2020Airs: 5-10-2020
  • 00:00:44.027 --> 00:00:56.439
  • Throw 1 Corinthians 16:9up there. Hallelujah.
  • 00:00:56.473 --> 00:00:59.242
  • For a great and effectivedoor has opened,
  • 00:01:01.211 --> 00:01:04.013
  • and there are many adversaries.
  • 00:01:05.148 --> 00:01:06.416
  • It's just amazing, Ican take that statement
  • 00:01:06.449 --> 00:01:08.885
  • and preach off of it amonth, just a statement.
  • 00:01:10.053 --> 00:01:12.122
  • So now a door is opening,God's in charge of it.
  • 00:01:14.858 --> 00:01:19.863
  • It has a shelf life.
  • 00:01:20.597 --> 00:01:22.065
  • Doors don't always looklike doors, so be looking.
  • 00:01:22.098 --> 00:01:24.767
  • Be aware, be preparedfor when it comes
  • 00:01:24.801 --> 00:01:27.604
  • because it has ashelf life, okay?
  • 00:01:27.637 --> 00:01:30.206
  • There's a greatand effective door,
  • 00:01:30.240 --> 00:01:32.575
  • and there are many adversaries.
  • 00:01:33.943 --> 00:01:35.845
  • And I've taken thelast couple of weeks
  • 00:01:35.879 --> 00:01:37.580
  • to try to shift ourperspective of trouble,
  • 00:01:37.614 --> 00:01:41.784
  • to shift the way welook at difficulty.
  • 00:01:43.653 --> 00:01:45.855
  • It is very common forus to look at adversity,
  • 00:01:47.423 --> 00:01:50.793
  • enemies, adversaries.
  • 00:01:50.827 --> 00:01:53.229
  • It is very common to look at us
  • 00:01:53.263 --> 00:01:54.931
  • as moments where Godhas abandoned us.
  • 00:01:54.964 --> 00:01:57.400
  • You feel isolated, youfeel alone, you're drained,
  • 00:01:57.433 --> 00:02:00.837
  • your focus is broken,there's a side show going on,
  • 00:02:00.870 --> 00:02:04.040
  • there's things you'redealing with on the side.
  • 00:02:04.073 --> 00:02:05.742
  • It's a headache, it'san aggravation to you,
  • 00:02:05.775 --> 00:02:08.077
  • and it's an adversary.
  • 00:02:09.245 --> 00:02:10.380
  • The thing we got toknow is, you know,
  • 00:02:11.614 --> 00:02:13.049
  • about six or sevensteps into this
  • 00:02:13.082 --> 00:02:15.251
  • is adversaries announce doors.
  • 00:02:16.119 --> 00:02:18.721
  • Enemies announce doors.
  • 00:02:20.423 --> 00:02:22.892
  • There is an opportunity,
  • 00:02:22.926 --> 00:02:24.327
  • and there is an enemyto the opportunity,
  • 00:02:24.360 --> 00:02:26.496
  • and they come together, okay?
  • 00:02:27.397 --> 00:02:30.967
  • See, that's whenyou lose your amens.
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:33.136
  • I was doing good with doors,
  • 00:02:33.169 --> 00:02:35.338
  • then when I startedon my enemies anddoors, it just -- okay?
  • 00:02:35.371 --> 00:02:38.474
  • You cannot be anexceptional person
  • 00:02:43.446 --> 00:02:46.549
  • and have ordinary battles.
  • 00:02:46.583 --> 00:02:48.885
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:02:48.918 --> 00:02:51.921
  • Unusual people haveunusual struggles.
  • 00:02:53.089 --> 00:02:56.459
  • Uncommon people haveuncommon struggles.
  • 00:02:58.795 --> 00:03:02.699
  • One thing I loveabout this area,
  • 00:03:03.766 --> 00:03:06.569
  • and it prides itselfin a good way,
  • 00:03:06.603 --> 00:03:08.638
  • is it knows it's not normal.
  • 00:03:08.671 --> 00:03:10.440
  • The people of this area knowthey're not common people.
  • 00:03:12.175 --> 00:03:14.911
  • They're different.
  • 00:03:15.878 --> 00:03:17.313
  • I'm beginning to think thiswhole area is prophetic.
  • 00:03:17.347 --> 00:03:19.215
  • This whole area wants to changethe world and sees tomorrow.
  • 00:03:20.617 --> 00:03:23.987
  • A doors' message shouldbe very celebrated
  • 00:03:24.020 --> 00:03:26.256
  • in an area likewe're in right here.
  • 00:03:26.289 --> 00:03:28.091
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:03:28.124 --> 00:03:29.158
  • I love that about this place.
  • 00:03:29.192 --> 00:03:31.261
  • And believer and non-believer,they tend to embrace that.
  • 00:03:31.294 --> 00:03:34.897
  • I love that.
  • 00:03:34.931 --> 00:03:35.832
  • But you can't doexceptional things
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:39.736
  • and get there through ordinary.
  • 00:03:39.769 --> 00:03:41.304
  • Extraordinary battlescreate extraordinary people.
  • 00:03:43.006 --> 00:03:46.476
  • So if you have a bigdoor, you got a big enemy.
  • 00:03:47.844 --> 00:03:51.180
  • If it's just an ordinary door,
  • 00:03:52.749 --> 00:03:54.317
  • then you've got alittle ordinary fight.
  • 00:03:54.350 --> 00:03:56.953
  • But you don't get the bigdoors with the little enemies.
  • 00:03:56.986 --> 00:03:59.856
  • Do you see?
  • 00:04:01.357 --> 00:04:02.825
  • When he was tryingto protect sheep,
  • 00:04:02.859 --> 00:04:05.461
  • he got to fightanimals, David did.
  • 00:04:05.495 --> 00:04:08.231
  • But when he's going to bethe king over a nation, whoa,
  • 00:04:08.264 --> 00:04:11.000
  • whole nother level,seven or 10 levels.
  • 00:04:12.802 --> 00:04:17.240
  • So now he's got to graduate
  • 00:04:18.374 --> 00:04:19.942
  • from learning how to throwa slingshot and a rock
  • 00:04:19.976 --> 00:04:22.578
  • at animals, to ahighly-trained military machine
  • 00:04:22.612 --> 00:04:27.183
  • that happens to be10-foot tall, okay?
  • 00:04:27.216 --> 00:04:31.154
  • Because if you're going to beking, if you're going there,
  • 00:04:32.588 --> 00:04:36.259
  • if you're going towalk through that door,
  • 00:04:36.292 --> 00:04:38.227
  • then you're going to have tofight Goliath to get through it.
  • 00:04:39.629 --> 00:04:42.265
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:04:42.298 --> 00:04:43.499
  • Do you see whatI'm talking about?
  • 00:04:43.533 --> 00:04:44.967
  • So, enemies create movement,enemies create movement.
  • 00:04:45.001 --> 00:04:49.839
  • You got to understand it'syour friends who comfort you,
  • 00:04:51.774 --> 00:04:54.510
  • it's your familywho embarrass you,
  • 00:04:54.544 --> 00:04:56.412
  • but it's your enemieswho promote you.
  • 00:04:58.514 --> 00:05:00.683
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:05:01.784 --> 00:05:04.220
  • So God says, I'mgiving you a door.
  • 00:05:04.253 --> 00:05:06.823
  • He's saying this tothe Apostle Paul,
  • 00:05:06.856 --> 00:05:08.191
  • but standing in frontof it is a struggle.
  • 00:05:08.224 --> 00:05:10.526
  • Standing in front of it isan enemy of your assignment.
  • 00:05:10.560 --> 00:05:13.329
  • Here is your opportunity,
  • 00:05:13.363 --> 00:05:15.031
  • and here's an enemyof your opportunity,
  • 00:05:15.064 --> 00:05:17.233
  • standing right in front of it.
  • 00:05:17.266 --> 00:05:18.935
  • And if you know what to dowith the enemy in front of it,
  • 00:05:18.968 --> 00:05:21.337
  • then you'll be ableto seize the moment
  • 00:05:21.371 --> 00:05:22.605
  • and that the door isaffording your life.
  • 00:05:22.638 --> 00:05:25.475
  • It's like, let me go back toDavid, he's the best example.
  • 00:05:25.508 --> 00:05:29.445
  • David is a 12-year old boywho's been anointed king.
  • 00:05:30.913 --> 00:05:34.684
  • He's been anointedking and prophet.
  • 00:05:35.885 --> 00:05:37.620
  • The prophet Samuel wentto his father's house
  • 00:05:38.921 --> 00:05:41.557
  • and David was so rejected anddisrespected when Samuel said,
  • 00:05:41.591 --> 00:05:46.329
  • bring all your boys inhere because God told me
  • 00:05:46.362 --> 00:05:48.498
  • one of your boys isgoing to be king.
  • 00:05:48.531 --> 00:05:50.299
  • David was not eveninvited into the house.
  • 00:05:50.333 --> 00:05:53.903
  • He's 12 years old, he's outthere tending the sheep.
  • 00:05:53.936 --> 00:05:57.573
  • The oil alwaysfalls on the busy.
  • 00:05:57.607 --> 00:05:59.942
  • It never falls on the slothful.
  • 00:06:01.677 --> 00:06:03.713
  • So, everybody's in the house
  • 00:06:05.081 --> 00:06:06.582
  • resting. The oil don't hit them.
  • 00:06:06.616 --> 00:06:08.184
  • The one who was out makingit happen, the oil fell.
  • 00:06:09.619 --> 00:06:11.621
  • I'll just throw that in there.
  • 00:06:11.654 --> 00:06:13.389
  • So he's out theretending the sheep,
  • 00:06:13.423 --> 00:06:15.057
  • tending the family business.
  • 00:06:15.091 --> 00:06:16.993
  • He don't get invitedinto the lineup.
  • 00:06:17.026 --> 00:06:19.395
  • Then Samuel says,go and get him.
  • 00:06:19.429 --> 00:06:21.197
  • And all of a sudden,the oil begins to move.
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:23.466
  • And he poured the hornof oil on his head.
  • 00:06:25.301 --> 00:06:27.937
  • The kid's 12-years-old.
  • 00:06:27.970 --> 00:06:30.072
  • So what happens whenyou're standing there
  • 00:06:30.106 --> 00:06:32.308
  • with your anointing oil over you
  • 00:06:32.341 --> 00:06:34.544
  • and you've got togo back to sheep?
  • 00:06:34.577 --> 00:06:36.279
  • So you've got a king'sanointed and a shepherd's job.
  • 00:06:37.613 --> 00:06:40.149
  • I could preach that.
  • 00:06:41.651 --> 00:06:43.286
  • I mean, I couldsettle in right there
  • 00:06:43.319 --> 00:06:45.221
  • because there's a lotof you with a kingly
  • 00:06:45.254 --> 00:06:46.889
  • and a priestly anointing
  • 00:06:46.923 --> 00:06:48.257
  • but you feel like you'redoing a common job.
  • 00:06:48.291 --> 00:06:50.026
  • Just hold on, let the oil move.
  • 00:06:50.059 --> 00:06:51.828
  • It'll take you whereit's supposed totake you. Hallelujah.
  • 00:06:51.861 --> 00:06:54.163
  • Tell your neighbor, saythe oil will move you,
  • 00:06:54.197 --> 00:06:56.566
  • the oil will move you.
  • 00:06:56.599 --> 00:06:58.434
  • So he's sitting there, he'sbeen anointed to be king
  • 00:06:58.468 --> 00:07:02.138
  • but he's a 12-year-oldboy tending sheep.
  • 00:07:02.171 --> 00:07:04.307
  • So, his brothers are in battle,
  • 00:07:04.340 --> 00:07:06.676
  • the Philistines are among them.
  • 00:07:06.709 --> 00:07:08.077
  • Goliath stands in thevalley, 10-foot tall,
  • 00:07:08.110 --> 00:07:10.980
  • military-trained giant, andhe's mocking the armies of God.
  • 00:07:11.013 --> 00:07:14.484
  • David shows up with cheesefor his brothers and says,
  • 00:07:14.517 --> 00:07:17.887
  • who is this guy andwhy do you let him talk
  • 00:07:17.920 --> 00:07:20.056
  • to y'all like that?
  • 00:07:20.089 --> 00:07:21.057
  • I love that.
  • 00:07:22.091 --> 00:07:23.092
  • 12-year-old boy, who doesthis guy think he is.
  • 00:07:24.494 --> 00:07:26.596
  • Long and short, he goesdown in the valley,
  • 00:07:29.499 --> 00:07:32.001
  • takes Goliath down withthe sling and the rock,
  • 00:07:33.202 --> 00:07:35.738
  • severs his head,because the head
  • 00:07:35.771 --> 00:07:37.707
  • is the symbol of authority.
  • 00:07:37.740 --> 00:07:39.008
  • He cut the symbol ofPhilistine authority
  • 00:07:39.041 --> 00:07:41.210
  • over the people of God.
  • 00:07:41.244 --> 00:07:43.112
  • That night, they puthim on their shoulders,
  • 00:07:43.145 --> 00:07:48.150
  • the soldiers do,and walk him down
  • 00:07:49.318 --> 00:07:52.088
  • through the streets of Jerusalem
  • 00:07:52.121 --> 00:07:53.556
  • and he's a national hero.
  • 00:07:53.589 --> 00:07:54.991
  • That morning he wasdelivering cheese.
  • 00:07:56.158 --> 00:07:57.894
  • I would say Goliath was a door.
  • 00:08:01.030 --> 00:08:03.199
  • Because that morningnobody knew who he was.
  • 00:08:05.001 --> 00:08:09.138
  • That night, he's goingthrough the capital city,
  • 00:08:09.171 --> 00:08:12.141
  • a national hero.
  • 00:08:12.174 --> 00:08:13.776
  • What stood in betweenthe morning and thenight, his enemy.
  • 00:08:13.809 --> 00:08:17.113
  • I'm telling you, you areone or two enemies away
  • 00:08:17.146 --> 00:08:19.949
  • from God pullingyou out obscurity
  • 00:08:19.982 --> 00:08:22.351
  • and putting you into notoriety,
  • 00:08:22.385 --> 00:08:24.153
  • from pulling you outof the background
  • 00:08:24.186 --> 00:08:25.855
  • and putting youin the forefront.
  • 00:08:25.888 --> 00:08:27.523
  • If you'll just be diligentto fight these battles,
  • 00:08:27.557 --> 00:08:30.092
  • stay the course and keepgoing straight ahead,
  • 00:08:30.126 --> 00:08:33.162
  • the oil will move youwhere He wants you to go.
  • 00:08:33.195 --> 00:08:36.032
  • Somebody take fiveseconds and praise Him

  • the most quoted scriptureprobably in the Bible,
  • 00:08:57.286 --> 00:09:00.556
  • outside of John 3:16.
  • 00:09:00.590 --> 00:09:02.258

  • 00:09:03.993 --> 00:09:05.828

  • where the room is filledwith trauma, disappointment,

  • sickness, loss, and he throwsthis scripture to the wall
  • 00:09:30.486 --> 00:09:34.724
  • hoping it'll stay, becauseit's the scripture we throw out

  • when we don't have answers.
  • 00:09:39.061 --> 00:09:40.496
  • And it becomes areligious cure all
  • 00:09:44.033 --> 00:09:46.302
  • without anybody reallyever breaking it down
  • 00:09:47.536 --> 00:09:50.673
  • and telling us what it means.
  • 00:09:50.706 --> 00:09:52.241

  • 00:09:53.709 --> 00:09:55.177

  • Your opportunity is upon you.
  • 00:10:14.697 --> 00:10:16.399
  • When the enemy showedup, the door showed up.
  • 00:10:18.801 --> 00:10:21.237
  • Remember, he's not onthe backside of the door,
  • 00:10:22.638 --> 00:10:24.507
  • he's on the frontside of the door.
  • 00:10:24.540 --> 00:10:27.043
  • The opportunity is on the otherside of the adversity, okay?
  • 00:10:27.076 --> 00:10:31.714

  • Jeremiah 29 God says, I knowthe plans I have for you,
  • 00:12:28.464 --> 00:12:32.034

  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:48.250
  • So, God has a plan for my life.
  • 00:12:49.151 --> 00:12:52.588
  • I've come up onunexpected resistance
  • 00:12:52.621 --> 00:12:56.091
  • and feels like God's left, feelslike God is nowhere around.
  • 00:12:57.893 --> 00:13:01.564
  • My resources are beingdrained, people have left me.
  • 00:13:01.597 --> 00:13:04.967
  • All this stuff's going on.
  • 00:13:05.000 --> 00:13:06.335
  • I'm experiencing lossin many categories,
  • 00:13:06.368 --> 00:13:09.939
  • not understandingthat all things
  • 00:13:09.972 --> 00:13:13.375
  • have been put on God's payroll
  • 00:13:14.376 --> 00:13:16.579
  • to work in cooperationwith my purpose.
  • 00:13:17.880 --> 00:13:21.884
  • So now you've got to changethe way you look at difficulty,
  • 00:13:23.786 --> 00:13:27.690
  • because God hasemployed the difficulty
  • 00:13:28.991 --> 00:13:31.827
  • and put it on heaven's payroll.
  • 00:13:31.861 --> 00:13:33.629
  • And heaven is usingyour difficulty
  • 00:13:34.864 --> 00:13:37.933
  • so that God can piecetogether the plan.
  • 00:13:37.967 --> 00:13:41.103
  • I know you don't think so,
  • 00:13:41.136 --> 00:13:42.438
  • but the adversary isa part of the plan.
  • 00:13:42.471 --> 00:13:45.341
  • And if you don'thave the adversary,
  • 00:13:45.374 --> 00:13:47.076
  • you don't have the door.
  • 00:13:47.109 --> 00:13:49.144
  • So that's why it says this;
  • 00:13:49.178 --> 00:13:50.679
  • He said, consider it joywhen you go through trials,
  • 00:13:50.713 --> 00:13:53.849
  • James 1, of diverse kinds.
  • 00:13:53.883 --> 00:13:56.752
  • First time I read that,I'm like, who does that?
  • 00:13:56.785 --> 00:13:59.121
  • That sounds likesomebody delusional,
  • 00:13:59.154 --> 00:14:01.190
  • don't even have theright mentality.
  • 00:14:01.223 --> 00:14:03.058
  • But the Bible says, when yousee your trials breaking out
  • 00:14:03.092 --> 00:14:06.495
  • of all these differentkinds, he said,
  • 00:14:06.528 --> 00:14:08.330
  • that's the time where youneed to consider it pure joy.
  • 00:14:08.364 --> 00:14:11.300
  • He said, because trialsdo not come alone,
  • 00:14:11.333 --> 00:14:14.670
  • they come in front of a door,
  • 00:14:14.703 --> 00:14:16.805
  • they come in frontof an opportunity.
  • 00:14:16.839 --> 00:14:18.941
  • So whenever you areexperiencing a trial,
  • 00:14:18.974 --> 00:14:21.710
  • not you shouldn't be bitter.
  • 00:14:21.744 --> 00:14:23.379
  • Anger shouldn't leap upon the inside of you,
  • 00:14:23.412 --> 00:14:25.714
  • joy should well upon the inside of you
  • 00:14:25.748 --> 00:14:28.284
  • because you're understanding
  • 00:14:28.317 --> 00:14:29.585
  • God is about to announcea new day in my life.
  • 00:14:29.618 --> 00:14:33.055
  • Samson, Delilah,
  • 00:14:37.026 --> 00:14:39.361
  • the Bible said Samsonkilled more in his death
  • 00:14:40.863 --> 00:14:44.400
  • than he did in theentirety of it,
  • 00:14:45.567 --> 00:14:47.569
  • in a moment of pushingtwo pillars out,
  • 00:14:47.603 --> 00:14:51.106
  • in a temple andhaving it collapse.
  • 00:14:51.140 --> 00:14:54.009
  • He killed more in his death
  • 00:14:54.043 --> 00:14:56.712
  • than every year ofhis life combined.
  • 00:14:56.745 --> 00:14:59.748
  • So Delilah did notresist God's plan.
  • 00:15:01.083 --> 00:15:03.619
  • She was the only way toget him in that temple.
  • 00:15:03.652 --> 00:15:06.655
  • If he would havestayed his old self,
  • 00:15:08.457 --> 00:15:11.026
  • he would've never made itbetween those two pillars,
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:13.362
  • but that was where theyput their entertainment.
  • 00:15:13.395 --> 00:15:16.465
  • And their defeat of Samsonbecame their entertainment.
  • 00:15:16.498 --> 00:15:20.736
  • Some people are lookingat your downfall
  • 00:15:20.769 --> 00:15:22.438
  • and they think it'stheir entertainment.
  • 00:15:22.471 --> 00:15:23.973
  • Just hold on, you about topush the two pillars down
  • 00:15:24.006 --> 00:15:25.941
  • and bring the whole thing down.
  • 00:15:25.975 --> 00:15:27.476
  • Now who am I talking to?
  • 00:15:27.509 --> 00:15:29.044
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:15:29.078 --> 00:15:32.081
  • Delilah did not resist God,she worked in conjunction.
  • 00:15:33.983 --> 00:15:37.886
  • Let me give you one more.
  • 00:15:37.920 --> 00:15:39.088
  • I think this is funny.
  • 00:15:39.121 --> 00:15:41.090
  • I read the Bible, I think1 Corinthians 2, it said,
  • 00:15:41.123 --> 00:15:45.461
  • had the rulers ofthis age had known,
  • 00:15:45.494 --> 00:15:48.397
  • they would never havecrucified the Lord.
  • 00:15:48.430 --> 00:15:50.899
  • They thought they weregetting rid of him.
  • 00:15:54.169 --> 00:15:56.271
  • If we kill him, we'regetting rid of him
  • 00:15:57.406 --> 00:16:00.376
  • and we stop this chaoscalled the kingdom
  • 00:16:00.409 --> 00:16:03.012
  • that he's bringing to earth.
  • 00:16:03.045 --> 00:16:04.480
  • And they had no ideathat the plan of God
  • 00:16:05.681 --> 00:16:07.816
  • was for him to die.
  • 00:16:07.850 --> 00:16:08.884
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:16:08.917 --> 00:16:11.120
  • And so they're sitting here,we're going to resist you
  • 00:16:11.153 --> 00:16:13.989
  • and we're goingto take your life,
  • 00:16:14.023 --> 00:16:15.557
  • not understandingthat it was him dying
  • 00:16:15.591 --> 00:16:17.860
  • and being raised from the dead.
  • 00:16:17.893 --> 00:16:20.095
  • They killed one son and whenhe came up out of the grave,
  • 00:16:20.129 --> 00:16:23.332
  • now there are millions of sons
  • 00:16:23.365 --> 00:16:25.200
  • and daughters allover the world.
  • 00:16:25.234 --> 00:16:27.302
  • So they didn't know thatwhen they were killing him,
  • 00:16:27.336 --> 00:16:29.605
  • they were multiplyinghim. Excuse me.
  • 00:16:29.638 --> 00:16:31.607
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:16:31.640 --> 00:16:33.842
  • And those people whoare persecuting you,
  • 00:16:33.876 --> 00:16:36.311
  • and those people who are harmingyou the whole time they press,
  • 00:16:36.345 --> 00:16:39.181
  • you're just multiplyingand you're just growing.
  • 00:16:39.214 --> 00:16:41.950
  • They are working in conjunction
  • 00:16:41.984 --> 00:16:43.986
  • with God's plan for your life.
  • 00:16:44.019 --> 00:16:46.355

  • 00:17:44.680 --> 00:17:45.481
  • Let me break this down.
  • 00:17:45.514 --> 00:17:46.682
  • So I love to do the scripture,
  • 00:17:47.716 --> 00:17:48.951
  • break it down and putit right in your lap,
  • 00:17:48.984 --> 00:17:51.019
  • so that it's user-friendlywhen you take it home, okay?
  • 00:17:51.053 --> 00:17:53.789
  • Blessed are you when theyrevile you and persecute you.
  • 00:17:56.825 --> 00:18:01.763
  • I tell you what, goback to verse 10,
  • 00:18:03.298 --> 00:18:04.533
  • go back to verse 10, guys.
  • 00:18:04.566 --> 00:18:06.068
  • Yeah, blessed are those
  • 00:18:06.101 --> 00:18:08.070
  • who are persecuted forrighteousness sake.
  • 00:18:08.103 --> 00:18:09.738
  • The word persecuted means totake flight or cause to run.
  • 00:18:09.771 --> 00:18:13.075
  • You are in thestate of blessing.
  • 00:18:16.211 --> 00:18:18.213
  • Listen to this.
  • 00:18:18.247 --> 00:18:19.214
  • You are in the stateof being blessed by God
  • 00:18:21.116 --> 00:18:25.154
  • when they're trying to makeyou run for righteousness sake.
  • 00:18:25.187 --> 00:18:30.192
  • Righteousness sake meansGod's divine approval.
  • 00:18:31.393 --> 00:18:34.196
  • Blessed are you whenthey are hating on you
  • 00:18:36.265 --> 00:18:39.868
  • because you have God's approval.
  • 00:18:40.736 --> 00:18:42.504
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:18:43.372 --> 00:18:46.375
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:18:52.214 --> 00:18:53.215
  • Divine approval means favor.
  • 00:18:55.117 --> 00:18:57.819
  • Favor means unearned andno rationale behind it.
  • 00:18:57.853 --> 00:19:00.889
  • God just did itbecause he wanted to.
  • 00:19:00.923 --> 00:19:02.824
  • The reason peoplehate on you for favor,
  • 00:19:02.858 --> 00:19:06.295
  • because usually favor givesyou what they are laboring for.
  • 00:19:06.328 --> 00:19:10.199
  • So they're having to work for it
  • 00:19:12.067 --> 00:19:13.268
  • while God's justhanding it to you
  • 00:19:13.302 --> 00:19:15.671
  • and that gets on their nerves.
  • 00:19:15.704 --> 00:19:18.240
  • Every time God wouldjust give me something,
  • 00:19:18.273 --> 00:19:20.108
  • or just drop something on me,I could see people's faces.
  • 00:19:20.142 --> 00:19:23.345
  • And I'm like, I know it getson your nerves, don't it?
  • 00:19:23.378 --> 00:19:25.881
  • I know, I can't help it.
  • 00:19:25.914 --> 00:19:27.449
  • I'm His son.
  • 00:19:27.482 --> 00:19:28.684
  • He loves me.
  • 00:19:28.717 --> 00:19:30.018
  • I got divine approval.
  • 00:19:30.052 --> 00:19:31.853
  • I know it's agitating you.
  • 00:19:31.887 --> 00:19:33.388
  • I can tell you're highlyannoyed right now.
  • 00:19:33.422 --> 00:19:35.757
  • But I'm like, Joseph.Joseph's daddy made him a coat
  • 00:19:35.791 --> 00:19:38.927
  • and I'm just wearing my coatmy daddy gave me. Hallelujah.
  • 00:19:38.961 --> 00:19:42.164
  • So when God just dropsblessings in my lap,
  • 00:19:42.197 --> 00:19:44.666
  • don't you be no hater.I'm just wearing my coat.
  • 00:19:44.700 --> 00:19:47.135
  • By the way, if you canclap over my blessing,
  • 00:19:47.169 --> 00:19:50.105
  • then guess what?
  • 00:19:50.138 --> 00:19:51.306
  • God will turn aroundand bless you.
  • 00:19:51.340 --> 00:19:52.641
  • Because when youlearn how to clap over
  • 00:19:52.674 --> 00:19:54.343
  • somebody else gettinga breakthrough,
  • 00:19:54.376 --> 00:19:56.278
  • God will turn around andsend one to your house.
  • 00:19:56.311 --> 00:19:58.847
  • I'm trying to break this down.
  • 00:19:59.881 --> 00:20:01.083
  • Y'all making me preach.
  • 00:20:01.116 --> 00:20:02.184
  • Oh, this is good.
  • 00:20:06.221 --> 00:20:07.289
  • For theirs is the kingdom.
  • 00:20:09.658 --> 00:20:11.059
  • Wow, I can't leave that alone.
  • 00:20:11.093 --> 00:20:12.995
  • Blessed are thosewho want to run.
  • 00:20:14.229 --> 00:20:16.865
  • They're so hard on you.
  • 00:20:16.898 --> 00:20:19.034
  • It makes you wantto be put to flight.
  • 00:20:20.202 --> 00:20:22.304
  • Those are the people thatare under so much pressure,
  • 00:20:22.337 --> 00:20:24.640
  • they take out the trashand end up in Utah.
  • 00:20:24.673 --> 00:20:26.942
  • You just wanted to getaway from it, okay?
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:36.084
  • For theirs is thekingdom of heaven.
  • 00:20:36.118 --> 00:20:37.686
  • Here is where RonCarpenter parts ways
  • 00:20:37.719 --> 00:20:39.988
  • with so many preachers,you need to know this.
  • 00:20:40.022 --> 00:20:42.324
  • There's a difference
  • 00:20:44.626 --> 00:20:45.894
  • between the kingdom ofheaven and the place,
  • 00:20:45.927 --> 00:20:48.430
  • and most preachers preachthem as one in the same.
  • 00:20:48.463 --> 00:20:51.033
  • It didn't say blessed are thoseof you who you want to run
  • 00:20:52.434 --> 00:20:55.304
  • because you've gotGod's divine approval
  • 00:20:55.337 --> 00:20:57.339
  • and God is going tolet you go to heaven.
  • 00:20:57.372 --> 00:20:58.807
  • You are going to heaven.
  • 00:20:58.840 --> 00:21:00.108
  • That's not what that's saying.
  • 00:21:00.142 --> 00:21:01.410
  • He says, for yoursis the kingdom.
  • 00:21:01.443 --> 00:21:03.378
  • The kingdom ofheaven is not heaven.
  • 00:21:04.479 --> 00:21:06.181
  • When you talk about thekingdom of the king,
  • 00:21:06.214 --> 00:21:08.183
  • you're talking about theextension of his rule.
  • 00:21:08.216 --> 00:21:10.552
  • That's why Jesussaid, pray like this,
  • 00:21:11.653 --> 00:21:13.422
  • that my kingdom would comeand my will would be done,
  • 00:21:13.455 --> 00:21:16.391
  • extended on earthas it is in heaven.
  • 00:21:16.425 --> 00:21:19.695
  • So the kingdom is an extension.
  • 00:21:19.728 --> 00:21:21.897
  • For theirs is theextension of heaven.
  • 00:21:24.032 --> 00:21:27.302
  • Here we go, letme break it down.
  • 00:21:30.472 --> 00:21:32.207
  • Now, let's find out whatthe kingdom of heaven is.
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:35.277
  • Let's go to Romans,I think it's 14.
  • 00:21:35.310 --> 00:21:37.979
  • Romans 14:7, yeah.
  • 00:21:38.013 --> 00:21:39.848
  • For the kingdom of God isnot eating and drinking,
  • 00:21:39.881 --> 00:21:43.218
  • but righteousness,divine approval,
  • 00:21:44.686 --> 00:21:46.922
  • peace, nothing missing,nothing broken.
  • 00:21:49.358 --> 00:21:52.728
  • The word peace actually meansthe state of being whole.
  • 00:21:54.930 --> 00:21:57.833
  • The kingdom, it's righteousness,
  • 00:22:01.203 --> 00:22:03.438
  • nothing missing andnothing broken, and joy.
  • 00:22:03.472 --> 00:22:07.776
  • Joy means, I'mscared to tell y'all
  • 00:22:08.977 --> 00:22:12.080
  • because y'all acting up today.
  • 00:22:12.114 --> 00:22:13.582
  • Joy means, that word rightthere means to jump up and down
  • 00:22:15.384 --> 00:22:19.755
  • as a result of thegoodness of God.
  • 00:22:19.788 --> 00:22:22.057
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:22:22.090 --> 00:22:24.459
  • For the kingdom isGod's divine approval,
  • 00:22:24.493 --> 00:22:27.929
  • living life with nothingmissing and nothing broken
  • 00:22:27.963 --> 00:22:30.899
  • and people who don'tmind jumping up and down
  • 00:22:30.932 --> 00:22:34.403
  • because of the goodnessof God in their life.
  • 00:22:34.436 --> 00:22:36.705
  • I know there's a bunch oftitles and a bunch of CEOs,
  • 00:22:36.738 --> 00:22:39.474
  • CFOs and executive VPs, butcan I tell you something?
  • 00:22:39.508 --> 00:22:43.478
  • God has been so good to me.
  • 00:22:43.512 --> 00:22:45.981
  • God has been so good to me,
  • 00:22:46.014 --> 00:22:48.250
  • because I don't carewhat's going on around me.
  • 00:22:48.283 --> 00:22:50.585
  • This stuff is not aroundme, this stuff is in me.
  • 00:22:50.619 --> 00:22:53.221
  • And it does not leave me.
  • 00:22:53.255 --> 00:22:54.723
  • And while everything's fallingapart, I got righteousness,
  • 00:22:54.756 --> 00:22:58.026
  • and I got nothing missing.
  • 00:22:58.059 --> 00:22:59.795
  • Nothing missing, nothingbroken in my money,
  • 00:22:59.828 --> 00:23:02.264
  • nothing missing, nothingbroken in my marriage,
  • 00:23:02.297 --> 00:23:04.633
  • nothing missing, nothingbroken in my relationships,
  • 00:23:04.666 --> 00:23:07.302
  • nothing missing, nothing brokenin my company, in my career.
  • 00:23:07.335 --> 00:23:10.539
  • I mean, I am whole.There is nothing missing
  • 00:23:10.572 --> 00:23:13.708
  • and there's nothing broken.
  • 00:23:13.742 --> 00:23:15.277
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:23:16.511 --> 00:23:19.114
  • - Hey guys, you know what?
  • 00:23:47.075 --> 00:23:47.976
  • We're coming now to that part
  • 00:23:48.009 --> 00:23:49.344
  • where we have these lastfew minutes together
  • 00:23:49.377 --> 00:23:51.580
  • where I get to talkto you personally.
  • 00:23:51.613 --> 00:23:53.381
  • You know that whenI'm preaching,
  • 00:23:53.415 --> 00:23:54.983
  • I'm speaking to anybody inthe world that wants to hear
  • 00:23:55.016 --> 00:23:57.285
  • but when I get tothis part right here,
  • 00:23:57.319 --> 00:23:59.354
  • I like it to be moreof a one-on-one time
  • 00:23:59.387 --> 00:24:01.389
  • where I can just first of all
  • 00:24:01.423 --> 00:24:02.424
  • let you know how grateful I am.
  • 00:24:02.457 --> 00:24:04.359
  • And you know, hererecently we've weathered
  • 00:24:04.392 --> 00:24:07.028
  • some challenging times,and I've always said
  • 00:24:07.062 --> 00:24:11.766
  • that people who are givers,
  • 00:24:11.800 --> 00:24:13.869
  • you open yourself upto uncommon resources.
  • 00:24:13.902 --> 00:24:16.471
  • What I mean, resourcesthat not by your trade,
  • 00:24:16.505 --> 00:24:19.841
  • by your skillset, not byyour education or your job,
  • 00:24:19.875 --> 00:24:23.411
  • but basically they'reunlocked by God
  • 00:24:23.445 --> 00:24:25.847
  • and come from places youdidn't see them coming.
  • 00:24:25.881 --> 00:24:28.850
  • And while so many times I spendthe end of our time together
  • 00:24:28.884 --> 00:24:32.821
  • just really thanking youand inviting others to give,
  • 00:24:32.854 --> 00:24:36.658
  • may I just tell you ina real spiritual context
  • 00:24:36.691 --> 00:24:40.762
  • that God is able topreserve you in your now
  • 00:24:40.795 --> 00:24:44.432
  • and create a future withthe seed that you sow.
  • 00:24:44.466 --> 00:24:47.435
  • There are three thingsthat the Bible calls seed.
  • 00:24:47.469 --> 00:24:49.538
  • The Bible calls my words seeds,
  • 00:24:49.571 --> 00:24:52.073
  • the Bible calls mydecisions seeds,
  • 00:24:52.107 --> 00:24:54.476
  • and the Bible callsmy offerings seeds.
  • 00:24:54.509 --> 00:24:57.379
  • So I have three things.
  • 00:24:57.412 --> 00:24:58.647
  • What is a seed?
  • 00:24:58.680 --> 00:25:00.115
  • It has a written DNA code tobecome something in the future.
  • 00:25:00.148 --> 00:25:04.719
  • So when I say something,
  • 00:25:04.753 --> 00:25:06.254
  • it has the ability to becomesomething in my future.
  • 00:25:06.288 --> 00:25:08.723
  • When I'm making a decision,
  • 00:25:08.757 --> 00:25:10.292
  • that decision has theability to go in my future
  • 00:25:10.325 --> 00:25:12.494
  • and become something.
  • 00:25:12.527 --> 00:25:13.962
  • When you give, you'reemptying out your present
  • 00:25:13.995 --> 00:25:16.197
  • to fill up your tomorrow.
  • 00:25:16.231 --> 00:25:18.166
  • Now I want to inviteyou, whether or not
  • 00:25:18.199 --> 00:25:19.668
  • you've ever done it or not,would you consider giving?
  • 00:25:19.701 --> 00:25:22.904
  • This is totally andcompletely viewer-supported.
  • 00:25:22.938 --> 00:25:26.141
  • We didn't sell any ads, wedidn't do any commercials, why?
  • 00:25:26.174 --> 00:25:29.044
  • Because it's the peoplewho are receiving from it
  • 00:25:29.077 --> 00:25:31.246
  • that turn around and blessit and keep it strong.
  • 00:25:31.279 --> 00:25:34.082
  • So even as in this time whereit may be a little harder
  • 00:25:34.115 --> 00:25:36.751
  • than normal, it is the timewhere you can continue to sow.
  • 00:25:36.785 --> 00:25:39.654
  • And the Bible said thatIsaac, in Genesis 26,
  • 00:25:39.688 --> 00:25:42.691
  • sowed in the land of famine.
  • 00:25:42.724 --> 00:25:44.626
  • He sowed in a difficulttime and in the same year
  • 00:25:44.659 --> 00:25:47.696
  • reaped 100-fold.
  • 00:25:47.729 --> 00:25:48.964
  • What if in difficult times,
  • 00:25:48.997 --> 00:25:50.632
  • our seed has a greaterpotential to increase?
  • 00:25:50.665 --> 00:25:55.637
  • I'm believing that.
  • 00:25:55.670 --> 00:25:56.871
  • I know that I've justrecently up'ed my giving
  • 00:25:56.905 --> 00:25:58.974
  • because I wantGod to preserve me
  • 00:25:59.007 --> 00:26:00.675
  • and create a great,great bountiful future
  • 00:26:00.709 --> 00:26:03.278
  • and I want to offerthat challenge to you.
  • 00:26:03.311 --> 00:26:05.113
  • So whether it's becominga monthly partnerwith the ministry
  • 00:26:05.146 --> 00:26:07.682
  • or just a one-time gift, ifit's your first one of any kind,
  • 00:26:07.716 --> 00:26:11.519
  • we want to give you thisjust to say thank you.
