  • WITH ANDREW WOMMACK,
  • 00:00:03.110 --> 00:00:05.010
  • A TEACHING MINISTRY
  • 00:00:05.010 --> 00:00:06.010

  • HIS TEACHING
  • 00:00:11.240 --> 00:00:12.180
  • ON WHO GOD IS AND WHO WE ARE,
  • 00:00:12.180 --> 00:00:15.060
  • RECORDED LIVE FROM THE 2019
  • 00:00:15.060 --> 00:00:17.240
  • GRACE AND FAITH CONFERENCE
  • 00:00:17.240 --> 00:00:19.090
  • > YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:00:20.260 --> 00:00:22.150
  • THAT YOU WERE AN ABSOLUTE MESS
  • 00:00:22.150 --> 00:00:25.100
  • BEFORE JESUS SAVED YOU.
  • 00:00:25.100 --> 00:00:27.220
  • APART FROM GOD'S INFLUENCE
  • 00:00:27.220 --> 00:00:29.150
  • IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:30.160
  • YOU JUST DON'T REALIZE
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:32.040
  • HOW PERFECT
  • 00:00:32.040 --> 00:00:32.230
  • YOU KNOW, LAST WEEK, I STARTED
  • 00:00:39.060 --> 00:00:41.060
  • AIRING A SERIES OF TEACHING
  • 00:00:41.060 --> 00:00:42.280
  • THAT I DID IN TELFORD, ENGLAND,
  • 00:00:42.280 --> 00:00:44.130
  • BACK IN MAY OF 2019
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:47.040
  • AND I TAUGHT PRIMARILY
  • 00:00:47.040 --> 00:00:48.200
  • ON WHO GOD IS
  • 00:00:48.200 --> 00:00:50.070
  • AND EXPLAINING HIS TRUE NATURE
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:51.270
  • AS BEING LOVE
  • 00:00:51.270 --> 00:00:53.040
  • AND NOT JUDGMENT AND HATE,
  • 00:00:53.040 --> 00:00:55.030
  • AND NOW I'M TEACHING
  • 00:00:55.030 --> 00:00:56.140
  • ON WHO WE ARE WITHOUT GOD.
  • 00:00:57.210 --> 00:01:00.230
  • NOW THIS IS UNIQUE.
  • 00:01:00.230 --> 00:01:02.060
  • YOU KNOW, I TEACH A LOT
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:02.280
  • ON WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST
  • 00:01:02.280 --> 00:01:04.130
  • AND THAT IS SUPER IMPORTANT,
  • 00:01:04.130 --> 00:01:05.230
  • BUT WE ALSO NEED TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:01:05.230 --> 00:01:07.190
  • WHAT HUMAN NATURE
  • 00:01:07.190 --> 00:01:09.080
  • WITHOUT GOD IS LIKE,
  • 00:01:09.080 --> 00:01:10.270
  • AND EVEN WHEN YOU GET
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:11.210
  • BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:01:11.210 --> 00:01:12.270
  • YOU...YOUR NATURE
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:13.210
  • HAS BEEN CHANGED,
  • 00:01:13.210 --> 00:01:14.210
  • BUT YOUR MIND STILL
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:15.260
  • HAS TO BE RENEWED.
  • 00:01:15.260 --> 00:01:17.060
  • THIS IS A TEACHING THAT COULD
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:18.200
  • REALLY, REALLY BLESS YOU,
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:19.280
  • SO, LISTEN.
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:20.160
  • THIS IS MY TEACHING
  • 00:01:20.160 --> 00:01:21.090
  • FROM TELFORD, ENGLAND
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:23.070
  • [CLAPPING]
  • 00:01:25.140 --> 00:01:28.150
  • MAN, IN 1 CORINTHIANS,
  • 00:01:26.170 --> 00:01:29.170
  • CHAPTER 1, VERSE 26 THROUGH 29,
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:32.050
  • I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE TIME
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:33.000
  • TO TURN OVER THERE
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:33.230
  • AND READ THAT, BUT HE SAYS,
  • 00:01:33.230 --> 00:01:35.230
  • YOU SEE YOUR CALLING, BRETHREN,
  • 00:01:35.230 --> 00:01:37.030
  • HOW THAT NOT MANY WISE MEN
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:38.260
  • AFTER THE FLESH ARE CALLED,
  • 00:01:38.260 --> 00:01:40.020
  • NOT MANY MIGHTY,
  • 00:01:40.020 --> 00:01:40.290
  • NOT MANY NOBLE BUT GOD CHOSE
  • 00:01:40.290 --> 00:01:42.230
  • THE WEAK THINGS OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:01:42.230 --> 00:01:44.010
  • BASE THINGS OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:01:44.010 --> 00:01:45.040
  • THINGS THAT ARE DESPISED,
  • 00:01:45.040 --> 00:01:46.290
  • THINGS THAT ARE NOTHING,
  • 00:01:46.290 --> 00:01:48.060
  • TO BRING TO NOUGHT
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:49.110
  • THINGS THAT ARE.
  • 00:01:49.110 --> 00:01:50.230
  • AND THE REASON HE DID IT
  • 00:01:50.230 --> 00:01:51.170
  • IN VERSE 29, IS SO THAT NO FLESH
  • 00:01:51.170 --> 00:01:54.140
  • WOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:01:54.140 --> 00:01:56.250
  • SO, THAT YOU WOULDN'T
  • 00:01:56.250 --> 00:01:57.250
  • TAKE THE CREDIT.
  • 00:01:57.250 --> 00:01:59.030
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, MY GLORY
  • 00:01:59.030 --> 00:02:01.040
  • I WILL NOT SHARE WITH ANOTHER.
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:04.090
  • IF YOU ARE WANTING GOD TO FLOW
  • 00:02:04.090 --> 00:02:06.010
  • THROUGH YOU,
  • 00:02:06.010 --> 00:02:06.190
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO QUIT
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:08.080
  • DOING IT IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH.
  • 00:02:08.080 --> 00:02:09.240
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO QUIT
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:10.210
  • TAKING THE CREDIT
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:11.270
  • AND YOU HAVE TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:13.100
  • THAT ANY GOOD THING
  • 00:02:13.100 --> 00:02:14.120
  • THAT YOU'VE GOT,
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:15.060
  • GOD GAVE IT TO YOU
  • 00:02:15.060 --> 00:02:17.000
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO
  • 00:02:17.000 --> 00:02:17.220
  • DO IT IN HIS STRENGTH
  • 00:02:17.220 --> 00:02:18.260
  • AND IN HIS POWER
  • 00:02:18.260 --> 00:02:19.260
  • AND NOT IN YOUR OWN.
  • 00:02:19.260 --> 00:02:22.070
  • AND SO, HE CHOSE WEAK THINGS
  • 00:02:22.070 --> 00:02:23.190
  • OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:02:23.190 --> 00:02:24.030
  • BASE THINGS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:25.100
  • IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE NOTHING,
  • 00:02:25.100 --> 00:02:27.060
  • OH GOD, I JUST CAN'T DO IT,
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:30.200
  • YOU'RE A GREAT CANDIDATE
  • 00:02:30.200 --> 00:02:32.060
  • FOR GOD TO USE.
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:34.260
  • I HAD A MAN COME ONE TIME
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:36.020
  • AND HE SAYS, HOW COME YOU
  • 00:02:36.020 --> 00:02:37.030
  • GOT TO BE A HICK FROM TEXAS
  • 00:02:37.030 --> 00:02:39.140
  • BEFORE GOD USES YOU?
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:41.190
  • AND HE WAS PUTTING ME
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:42.100
  • IN THE CATEGORY
  • 00:02:42.100 --> 00:02:43.100
  • OF SOME OTHER MINISTERS
  • 00:02:43.100 --> 00:02:44.140
  • THAT WERE HICKS FROM TEXAS.
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:46.240
  • AND HE SAYS, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:02:46.240 --> 00:02:47.160
  • BE A HICK FROM TEXAS
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:48.240
  • BEFORE GOD WILL USE YOU?
  • 00:02:48.240 --> 00:02:49.280
  • AND I SAID, IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:50.230
  • HICKS FROM TEXAS KNOW
  • 00:02:50.230 --> 00:02:52.130
  • THAT THEY HADN'T GOT
  • 00:02:52.130 --> 00:02:53.100
  • ANY ABILITY TO DO IT.
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:54.230
  • WE HAVE TO BE DEPENDENT
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:55.240
  • UPON GOD.
  • 00:02:55.240 --> 00:02:57.200
  • GOD IS NOT A LOWBROW.
  • 00:02:57.200 --> 00:02:59.250
  • IT'S NOT LIKE GOD
  • 00:02:59.250 --> 00:03:00.210
  • DOESN'T LIKE PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:03:00.210 --> 00:03:01.270
  • GREAT TALENTS AND ABILITIES.
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:03.120
  • IT'S JUST THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:04.110
  • WHO ARE VERY TALENTED
  • 00:03:04.110 --> 00:03:05.160
  • AND HAVE ALL OF THESE ABILITIES
  • 00:03:05.160 --> 00:03:06.260
  • TEND TO TRUST IN THEMSELVES
  • 00:03:06.260 --> 00:03:08.060
  • AND NOT TRUST IN GOD.
  • 00:03:08.060 --> 00:03:09.210
  • AND SO, GOD HAS TO GO GET
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:11.050
  • SOMEBODY WHO DOESN'T
  • 00:03:11.050 --> 00:03:12.040
  • HAVE ANYTHING GOING FOR THEM,
  • 00:03:12.040 --> 00:03:14.050
  • SO THAT THEY'LL TRUST IN HIM.
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:18.200
  • YOU KNOW, LET ME JUST,
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:27.160
  • REAL QUICKLY,
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:28.130
  • SUMMARIZE SOME THINGS.
  • 00:03:28.130 --> 00:03:29.200
  • JUDGES 17:6,
  • 00:03:29.200 --> 00:03:31.170
  • IN THOSE DAYS THERE WAS NO KING
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.290
  • IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:34.270
  • EVERY MAN DID THAT
  • 00:03:34.270 --> 00:03:36.050
  • WHICH WAS RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES.
  • 00:03:36.050 --> 00:03:38.110
  • THEN IN JUDGES, CHAPTER 18,
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:40.050
  • VERSE 1, THERE WAS NO KING
  • 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:42.000
  • IN ISRAEL:...
  • 00:03:42.000 --> 00:03:42.200
  • JUDGES 19:1,
  • 00:03:42.200 --> 00:03:44.120
  • THERE WAS NO KING IN ISRAEL,...
  • 00:03:44.120 --> 00:03:46.100
  • AND THEN JUDGES CHAPTER 21,
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:48.200
  • VERSE 25, SAYS, IN THOSE DAYS
  • 00:03:48.200 --> 00:03:50.200
  • THERE WAS NO KING IN ISRAEL:
  • 00:03:50.200 --> 00:03:52.120
  • EVERY MAN DID THAT
  • 00:03:52.120 --> 00:03:53.120
  • WHICH WAS RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES.
  • 00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:55.090
  • YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:56.270
  • IT SAYS IT FOUR TIMES
  • 00:03:56.270 --> 00:03:58.220
  • IN THREE CHAPTERS FOR A REASON.
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:02.030
  • IT'S SHOWING YOU
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.040
  • WHAT MAN IS LIKE
  • 00:04:03.040 --> 00:04:05.150
  • WHEN THERE IS NO RESTRAINT
  • 00:04:05.150 --> 00:04:07.180
  • UPON THEM.
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:09.100
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS IN SCHOOL,
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:10.180
  • THEY HAD THIS BOOK
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:11.140
  • THAT THEY MADE US READ.
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:12.280
  • I PROTESTED AND THEY MADE ME
  • 00:04:12.280 --> 00:04:14.160
  • READ IT ANYWAY.
  • 00:04:14.160 --> 00:04:15.170
  • AND IT WAS CALLED,
  • 00:04:15.170 --> 00:04:16.040
  • LORD OF THE FLIES.
  • 00:04:16.040 --> 00:04:18.180
  • IT WAS A PITIFUL BOOK.
  • 00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:20.240
  • ANYBODY EVER READ THAT BOOK?
  • 00:04:20.240 --> 00:04:23.240
  • AND BASICALLY, WHAT IT WAS ABOUT
  • 00:04:23.240 --> 00:04:25.100
  • WAS A BUNCH OF YOUNG PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:25.100 --> 00:04:27.040
  • THEY GOT STRANDED
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:28.000
  • ON AN ISLAND
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.040
  • AND THEY WERE ALL INNOCENT,
  • 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:31.140
  • YOUNG PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:31.140 --> 00:04:32.010
  • SEE, MOST PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:04:32.010 --> 00:04:32.270
  • BUT WE'RE ALL BASICALLY GOOD
  • 00:04:32.270 --> 00:04:35.070
  • ON OUR OWN.
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:35.210
  • WHAT THAT BOOK DID,
  • 00:04:35.210 --> 00:04:36.250
  • IT SHOWED THAT THEY BEGAN
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:38.050
  • TO START FORMING SOME KIND OF
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:39.250
  • A GOVERNMENT SYSTEM.
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.000
  • THEY FORMED CLIQUES
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:43.170
  • AND THEY ACTUALLY BEGAN TO START
  • 00:04:43.170 --> 00:04:45.070
  • PUNISHING OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:04:45.070 --> 00:04:46.130
  • AND THEY STARTED
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:47.010
  • KILLING EACH OTHER.
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:48.030
  • YOUNG KIDS STARTED
  • 00:04:48.030 --> 00:04:50.020
  • KILLING EACH OTHER,
  • 00:04:50.020 --> 00:04:51.010
  • BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT'S
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:52.060
  • IN THE HEART OF MAN.
  • 00:04:52.060 --> 00:04:53.150
  • IF YOU LEAVE THEM BY THEMSELVES,
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:55.190
  • I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE,
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:58.020
  • WE, ON OUR OWN LEVEL
  • 00:04:58.020 --> 00:04:59.270
  • WITHOUT THE INFLUENCE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:01.200
  • ARE EVIL AND DESPERATELY WICKED.
  • 00:05:01.200 --> 00:05:03.290
  • AND THAT'S WHAT JUDGES,
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:05.290
  • CHAPTER 17:6,
  • 00:05:05.290 --> 00:05:08.140
  • ALL THE WAY THROUGH 21:25,
  • 00:05:08.140 --> 00:05:10.160
  • PORTRAYS.
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:11.120
  • IT, FIRST OF ALL, TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:12.260
  • A LEVITE,
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:14.000
  • A MINISTER WHO WAS NOT
  • 00:05:14.000 --> 00:05:15.260
  • A GODLY LEVITE
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:17.060
  • AND HE WENT OUT AS A HIRELING
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:19.010
  • AND JUST WENT SOMEPLACE
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:20.040
  • WHERE SOMEBODY WOULD PAY HIM,
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:21.170
  • AND A GUY PAID HIM
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:23.080
  • TO BE THE LEVITE,
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:25.030
  • THE PRIEST FOR HIS DEMONIC GODS.
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:28.160
  • AND SO, HE...HE WAS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:28.160 --> 00:05:31.060
  • HE WAS A SERVANT OF THE LORD,
  • 00:05:31.060 --> 00:05:32.130
  • HE WAS A LEVITE,
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:33.070
  • BUT HE WAS OFFERING SACRIFICES
  • 00:05:33.250 --> 00:05:36.250
  • TO THESE DEMONIC GODS.
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:38.040
  • AND THEN SOME OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:05:38.040 --> 00:05:39.100
  • CAME BY AND THEY CAME IN
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:41.150
  • AND STOLE ALL OF THOSE GODS,
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:43.280
  • AND THESE LEVITES CAME OUT
  • 00:05:43.280 --> 00:05:45.090
  • AND SAID, YOU'RE STEALING GODS.
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:46.170
  • YOU KNOW, THIS IS ALWAYS
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:47.280
  • INTERESTING TO ME.
  • 00:05:47.280 --> 00:05:49.240
  • IF YOU HAVE TO GO AND DEFEND
  • 00:05:49.240 --> 00:05:51.160
  • A GOD, BECAUSE SOMEBODY
  • 00:05:51.160 --> 00:05:52.120
  • STOLE YOUR GOD,
  • 00:05:52.120 --> 00:05:53.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:57.250
  • WHEN THE PHILISTINES STOLE
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:59.240
  • THE ARK OF THE COVENANT,
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:01.250
  • GOD DEFENDED HIMSELF.
  • 00:06:01.250 --> 00:06:03.120
  • YOU CAN READ ABOUT THAT
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:04.100
  • OVER IN 1 SAMUEL,
  • 00:06:04.100 --> 00:06:06.170
  • AND GOD, MAN, THEY...THEY
  • 00:06:06.170 --> 00:06:08.050
  • SENT THE ARK BACK,
  • 00:06:08.050 --> 00:06:09.110
  • BECAUSE IT WAS KILLING THEM
  • 00:06:09.110 --> 00:06:10.160
  • AND DESTROYING THEM.
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:11.120
  • GOD CAN DEFEND HIMSELF.
  • 00:06:11.120 --> 00:06:14.020
  • WHEN I WAS IN VIETNAM,
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:16.240
  • THERE WAS THIS ONE GUY
  • 00:06:16.240 --> 00:06:17.260
  • THAT I WITNESSED TO
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:18.220
  • ALL OF THE TIME
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:19.170
  • AND HE WAS CRAZY.
  • 00:06:19.170 --> 00:06:21.210
  • AND ANYWAY, HE HAD A ROCK
  • 00:06:21.210 --> 00:06:24.040
  • THAT HE HAD WRITTEN, GOD, ON
  • 00:06:24.040 --> 00:06:26.010
  • AND HE PUT IT UP ABOVE HIS BUNK
  • 00:06:26.010 --> 00:06:27.140
  • AND HE PRAYED TO THIS ROCK
  • 00:06:27.140 --> 00:06:29.230
  • AND CALLED IT, GOD.
  • 00:06:29.230 --> 00:06:31.080
  • AND ANYWAY, ONE DAY,
  • 00:06:31.080 --> 00:06:32.120
  • SOMEBODY GOT TIRED OF HIM
  • 00:06:32.120 --> 00:06:33.200
  • DOING THIS
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:34.100
  • AND THEY TOOK HIS ROCK,
  • 00:06:34.100 --> 00:06:35.190
  • AND WE WERE ON A REALLY
  • 00:06:35.190 --> 00:06:36.170
  • STEEP MOUNTAIN
  • 00:06:36.170 --> 00:06:37.100
  • AND THEY JUST THREW
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:38.090
  • THE ROCK OFF THE MOUNTAIN
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:40.030
  • AND IT WENT A MILE
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:41.000
  • DOWN THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:42.160
  • AND ANYWAY, HE CAME OUT WITH
  • 00:06:42.160 --> 00:06:43.290
  • HIS THOMPSON SUBMACHINE GUN
  • 00:06:43.290 --> 00:06:46.070
  • AND HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:06:46.070 --> 00:06:46.250
  • KILL SOMEBODY.
  • 00:06:46.250 --> 00:06:48.030
  • WHO KILLED MY GOD?
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:51.200
  • AND WE JUST SAID,
  • 00:06:51.200 --> 00:06:52.130
  • WASN'T MUCH OF A GOD WAS IT?
  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:55.100
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:55.240
  • HE SAYS, WELL I GUESS NOT,
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:57.080
  • AND THAT ENDED,
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:58.090
  • AMEN?
  • 00:06:58.090 --> 00:06:59.240
  • IF YOU CAN THROW THIS GOD AWAY,
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:01.130
  • IT'S NOT MUCH OF A GOD,
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:02.200
  • SO, ANYWAY, THESE OTHER GUYS
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:03.260
  • CAME AND TOOK ALL OF THEIR GODS
  • 00:07:03.260 --> 00:07:06.020
  • AND THIS LEVITE CAME OUT
  • 00:07:06.020 --> 00:07:07.180
  • AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:07:07.180 --> 00:07:08.060
  • YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH
  • 00:07:08.060 --> 00:07:09.090
  • OR WE'LL KILL YOU;
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:10.110
  • SAYS, IT WOULD BE BETTER
  • 00:07:10.110 --> 00:07:11.140
  • IF YOU JUST COME WITH US,
  • 00:07:11.140 --> 00:07:13.100
  • AND SO, HE SAYS,
  • 00:07:13.100 --> 00:07:13.260
  • SURE, I'LL GO WITH YOU,
  • 00:07:13.260 --> 00:07:15.030
  • AND SO, HE WAS A HIRELING
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:16.110
  • AND HE WENT.
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:17.020
  • THAT'S NOT TO ENDORSE
  • 00:07:17.020 --> 00:07:18.130
  • THIS ACTION.
  • 00:07:18.130 --> 00:07:19.020
  • IT'S TO SHOW YOU WHAT PEOPLE
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:20.080
  • ARE LIKE ON THEIR OWN.
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:22.050
  • REMEMBER, JUDGES 17:6,
  • 00:07:22.170 --> 00:07:25.170
  • THERE WAS NO KING IN ISRAEL,...
  • 00:07:25.170 --> 00:07:27.170
  • THERE WAS NO CIVIL GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:07:27.170 --> 00:07:29.120
  • EVERY MAN DID WHAT WAS RIGHT
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:31.130
  • IN HIS EYES.
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:32.080
  • IT STARTS WITH THAT
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:33.140
  • AND THEN IT ENDS CHAPTER 21,
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:35.130
  • VERSE 25,
  • 00:07:35.130 --> 00:07:36.150
  • THERE WAS NO KING IN ISRAEL:
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:38.040
  • EVERY MAN DID THAT
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:38.280
  • WHICH WAS RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES.
  • 00:07:38.280 --> 00:07:40.280
  • THAT IS IN THERE TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:43.050
  • WHAT MAN IS CAPABLE OF
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:45.180
  • ON THEIR OWN.
  • 00:07:45.180 --> 00:07:46.280
  • AND MAN, I WOULD LOVE
  • 00:07:46.280 --> 00:07:47.220
  • TO STAY ON THIS AN HOUR.
  • 00:07:47.220 --> 00:07:49.020
  • I GOT SOME OTHER THINGS
  • 00:07:49.020 --> 00:07:49.250
  • I WANT TO SHARE,
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:50.160
  • BUT I JUST CAN'T HELP,
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:51.210
  • BUT POINT THIS OUT
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:53.070
  • THAT, TODAY, WE ARE TAKING AWAY
  • 00:07:53.070 --> 00:07:55.110
  • ALL MORALITY AND ALL RESTRAINTS
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:57.220
  • UPON SIN.
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:07:58.280
  • WE'RE SAYING THAT HOMOSEXUALITY,
  • 00:07:58.280 --> 00:08:01.100
  • ADULTERY,
  • 00:08:01.100 --> 00:08:02.180
  • ALL KINDS OF STUFF;
  • 00:08:02.180 --> 00:08:04.050
  • GAMBLING IS OKAY.
  • 00:08:04.050 --> 00:08:05.290
  • IT'S EVIL.
  • 00:08:05.290 --> 00:08:07.180
  • WEALTH GOTTEN BY VANITY,
  • 00:08:07.180 --> 00:08:09.110
  • TAKES AWAY THE LIFE
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:10.130
  • OF THE OWNERS THEREOF.
  • 00:08:10.130 --> 00:08:11.280
  • LOTTERY;
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:12.200
  • GAMBLING IS AN UNGODLY THING,
  • 00:08:12.200 --> 00:08:15.030
  • AND YET, THERE IS PROBABLY
  • 00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:16.010
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM
  • 00:08:16.010 --> 00:08:17.120
  • THAT BUY LOTTERY TICKETS.
  • 00:08:17.120 --> 00:08:19.180
  • GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:20.290
  • I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:08:20.290 --> 00:08:22.140
  • BUT IT'S UNGODLY.
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:25.080
  • AND YOU'RE PRAYING,
  • 00:08:25.080 --> 00:08:26.190
  • OH, GOD, HELP ME TO WIN
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:28.060
  • THE LOTTERY.
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:29.040
  • GOD'S NOT GOING TO FIX
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:30.100
  • THE LOTTERY FOR YOU.
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:34.000
  • IT'S UNGODLY.
  • 00:08:34.000 --> 00:08:35.260
  • AND WHEN WE START ALLOWING
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:37.160
  • THINGS THAT GOD DOESN'T ALLOW
  • 00:08:37.160 --> 00:08:39.080
  • AND YOU TAKE RESTRAINTS OFF,
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:41.070
  • THIS IS WHERE WE'RE HEADED,
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:42.190
  • JUDGES, CHAPTER 21, VERSE 25.
  • 00:08:42.190 --> 00:08:45.090
  • EVERY MAN DID THAT
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:46.000
  • WHICH WAS RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES,
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:48.040
  • THIS WAS PUT IN HERE TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:08:48.040 --> 00:08:50.130
  • WHAT MEN ARE CAPABLE OF
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:53.050
  • WITHOUT THE LORD.
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:55.170
  • AND THIS IS WHO WE ARE
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:57.150
  • AT OUR CORE.
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:58.040
  • WE ARE FALLEN HUMAN BEINGS.
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:09:00.020
  • NOW WHEN YOU GET BORN AGAIN,
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:01.220
  • YOU BECOME A BRAND NEW PERSON
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:03.050
  • AND I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:04.020
  • THE GOOD SIDE OF THIS.
  • 00:09:04.020 --> 00:09:05.250
  • BUT YOU'VE ALSO GOT TO NOT ONLY
  • 00:09:05.250 --> 00:09:07.180
  • LOOK TO JESUS
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:08.130
  • AND WHO YOU'VE BECOME IN JESUS.
  • 00:09:08.130 --> 00:09:09.260
  • YOU'VE GOT TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:09:09.260 --> 00:09:10.260
  • WHO YOU ARE WITHOUT JESUS,
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:14.210
  • SO THAT YOU'LL QUIT TRUSTING
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:16.010
  • IN YOURSELF
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:16.220
  • AND YOU'LL BECOME GOD-DEPENDENT.
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:18.200
  • LOOK AT THESE VERSES
  • 00:09:18.200 --> 00:09:19.170
  • IN PHILIPPIANS, CHAPTER 3,
  • 00:09:19.170 --> 00:09:21.190
  • IN VERSE 3, IT SAYS,
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:23.210
  • FOR WE ARE THE CIRCUMCISION,
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:25.110
  • WHICH WORSHIP GOD IN THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:27.140
  • AND REJOICE IN CHRIST JESUS,
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:29.110
  • AND HAVE NO CONFIDENCE
  • 00:09:29.110 --> 00:09:31.080
  • IN THE FLESH.
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:32.220
  • PAUL SAID I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:35.040
  • AND YET, TODAY, WE ARE TOLD
  • 00:09:37.220 --> 00:09:39.210
  • THAT YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:09:39.210 --> 00:09:40.060
  • TO HAVE CONFIDENCE.
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.190
  • YOU GOT TO HAVE CONFIDENCE
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:42.210
  • IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:09:42.210 --> 00:09:43.120
  • WE HAVE SELF-ESTEEM CLASSES.
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:46.070
  • PSYCHOLOGY HAS TAUGHT US
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:47.160
  • TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT SELF
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:49.050
  • AT ALL COSTS.
  • 00:09:49.050 --> 00:09:50.080
  • AND YOU KNOW THE WAY THEY DO IT?
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:51.270
  • THE WAY TO REALLY FEEL GOOD
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:53.050
  • ABOUT YOURSELF
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:53.280
  • IS TO GET BORN AGAIN
  • 00:09:53.280 --> 00:09:55.040
  • AND BECOME A NEW SELF.
  • 00:09:55.040 --> 00:09:57.030
  • AND THEN YOU CAN FEEL GOOD
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:09:58.100
  • ABOUT THE PERSON THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:09:59.210
  • IN CHRIST.
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:02.230
  • BUT PSYCHOLOGY DOESN'T
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:04.160
  • ACKNOWLEDGE GOD.
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:07.170
  • NOW THERE ARE SOME CHRISTIAN
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:08.270
  • PSYCHOLOGISTS,
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:10.070
  • BUT IT'S CONTRARY TO THE ROOT
  • 00:10:10.070 --> 00:10:12.080
  • OF PSYCHOLOGY.
  • 00:10:12.080 --> 00:10:13.040
  • THE VERY WORD, PSYCHOLOGY,
  • 00:10:13.040 --> 00:10:14.260
  • COMES FROM A WORD THAT MEANS,
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:16.030
  • PSYCHE.
  • 00:10:16.030 --> 00:10:17.020
  • THAT WAS THE ROMAN GOD
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:18.230
  • OF THE SOUL,
  • 00:10:18.230 --> 00:10:20.250
  • AND THEN, OLOGY,
  • 00:10:20.250 --> 00:10:21.220
  • MEANS, THE STUDY OF.
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:23.100
  • SO YOU'RE TALKING ONLY ABOUT
  • 00:10:23.100 --> 00:10:24.180
  • THE SOUL.
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:25.070
  • YOU AREN'T TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:10:25.070 --> 00:10:26.070
  • THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:10:26.070 --> 00:10:26.270
  • THEY'RE ONLY DEALING WITH THINGS
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:28.000
  • FROM A HUMANISTIC PERCEPTION.
  • 00:10:28.040 --> 00:10:31.040
  • AND PSYCHOLOGY DOES NOT
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:32.270
  • UNDERSTAND FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:10:32.270 --> 00:10:34.230
  • IT DOESN'T UNDERSTAND MERCY.
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:36.230
  • IT DOESN'T UNDERSTAND GRACE.
  • 00:10:36.230 --> 00:10:38.190
  • PSYCHOLOGY WILL MAKE YOU
  • 00:10:38.190 --> 00:10:40.150
  • FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF
  • 00:10:40.150 --> 00:10:42.050
  • BY BLAMING EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:10:42.050 --> 00:10:43.230
  • IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT
  • 00:10:43.230 --> 00:10:44.180
  • THAT YOU'RE A JERK.
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:45.280
  • IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT
  • 00:10:45.280 --> 00:10:46.210
  • THAT YOU'RE A MESS.
  • 00:10:46.210 --> 00:10:47.180
  • IT'S THE WAY
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:48.030
  • THAT YOU WERE RAISED.
  • 00:10:48.030 --> 00:10:49.060
  • THEY DID THIS TO YOU
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:50.070
  • AND SO IT JUST MEANS
  • 00:10:50.070 --> 00:10:51.170
  • THAT YOU'VE GOT TO BE MESSED UP
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:53.030
  • THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:53.260 --> 00:10:56.260
  • THAT IS NOT TRUE,
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:58.160
  • BUT THAT IS WHAT PSYCHOLOGY
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:10:59.250
  • IS TEACHING AND MOST CHRISTIANS
  • 00:10:59.250 --> 00:11:01.080
  • HAVE BOUGHT INTO IT.
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:02.210
  • AND YOU, EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:03.180
  • YOU ARE AN ABSOLUTE MESS
  • 00:11:03.180 --> 00:11:05.140
  • AND EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:11:05.140 --> 00:11:06.010
  • YOU CAN'T FUNCTION,
  • 00:11:06.010 --> 00:11:07.040
  • AND YOU'RE DEPRESSED
  • 00:11:07.040 --> 00:11:07.290
  • AND DISCOURAGED
  • 00:11:07.290 --> 00:11:08.230
  • AND ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS,
  • 00:11:08.230 --> 00:11:10.100
  • IT'S SOMEBODY ELSE'S FAULT.
  • 00:11:10.100 --> 00:11:12.000
  • IT'S THAT WOMAN
  • 00:11:12.000 --> 00:11:13.100
  • THAT YOU GAVE ME.
  • 00:11:13.100 --> 00:11:15.030
  • ADAM PUT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:11:15.030 --> 00:11:16.260
  • PUT THE BLAME OFF ON EVE
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:18.120
  • AND THEN SAID, GOD,
  • 00:11:18.120 --> 00:11:19.040
  • YOU'RE THE ONE THAT CREATED HER.
  • 00:11:19.040 --> 00:11:20.150
  • IT'S REALLY YOUR FAULT.
  • 00:11:20.150 --> 00:11:21.200
  • ADAM REFUSED TO ACCEPT
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:22.270
  • RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:11:22.270 --> 00:11:24.100
  • AS LONG AS SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:11:24.100 --> 00:11:26.000
  • IS THE CAUSE OF YOUR PROBLEM,
  • 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:27.130
  • THEN YOU'RE THE VICTIM.
  • 00:11:27.130 --> 00:11:29.030
  • THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BECOME
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:30.000
  • A VICTOR IS TO QUIT
  • 00:11:30.000 --> 00:11:31.140
  • BEING A VICTIM
  • 00:11:31.140 --> 00:11:32.190
  • AND ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:34.080
  • THAT OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:11:34.080 --> 00:11:35.000
  • BUT IT IS MY CHOICE.
  • 00:11:38.210 --> 00:11:41.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:42.040
  • IN DEUTERONOMY 30:19,
  • 00:11:42.040 --> 00:11:44.070
  • BEHOLD, I CALL HEAVEN AND EARTH
  • 00:11:44.070 --> 00:11:46.020
  • TO RECORD AGAINST YOU THIS DAY,
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:47.140
  • THAT I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:48.160
  • LIFE AND DEATH,
  • 00:11:48.160 --> 00:11:50.160
  • BLESSING AND CURSING:
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:52.120
  • THEREFORE CHOOSE...
  • 00:11:52.120 --> 00:11:54.220
  • YOU CHOOSE.
  • 00:11:54.220 --> 00:11:56.000
  • HE GAVE YOU THE CHOICE.
  • 00:11:56.000 --> 00:11:58.030
  • OTHER PEOPLE CAN DO THINGS
  • 00:11:58.030 --> 00:11:59.070
  • TO YOU, BUT YOU'VE GOT A CHOICE
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.080
  • WHETHER YOU BECOME BITTER
  • 00:12:00.080 --> 00:12:01.190
  • OR BETTER.
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:02.280
  • IT IS WRONG TO SAY I CAN'T HELP
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:04.210
  • MY REACTION.
  • 00:12:04.210 --> 00:12:05.190
  • THIS PERSON DID THAT TO ME.
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:07.070
  • JESUS TURNED AROUND
  • 00:12:07.070 --> 00:12:08.120
  • AND FORGAVE THE VERY PEOPLE
  • 00:12:08.120 --> 00:12:09.220
  • WHO WERE CRUCIFYING THEM,
  • 00:12:09.220 --> 00:12:10.270
  • AND SAID, FATHER, FORGIVE THEM;
  • 00:12:10.270 --> 00:12:12.130
  • FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO.
  • 00:12:12.130 --> 00:12:13.270
  • AND SOME PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:12:13.270 --> 00:12:14.190
  • WELL, THAT WAS JESUS.
  • 00:12:14.190 --> 00:12:16.100
  • WELL, STEPHEN DID
  • 00:12:16.100 --> 00:12:17.090
  • THE EXACT SAME THING
  • 00:12:17.090 --> 00:12:18.160
  • IN ACTS, CHAPTER 7,
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:19.220
  • FATHER, LAY NOT THIS SIN
  • 00:12:19.220 --> 00:12:21.030
  • TO THEIR CHARGE.
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:23.150
  • WE CAN DO THE SAME WORKS
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:24.220
  • THAT JESUS DID.
  • 00:12:24.220 --> 00:12:25.230
  • IT IS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG,
  • 00:12:25.230 --> 00:12:27.120
  • WRONG, WRONG FOR YOU
  • 00:12:27.120 --> 00:12:28.230
  • TO ALWAYS BLAME SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:12:28.230 --> 00:12:30.230
  • FOR WHAT YOU DID.
  • 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:33.070
  • YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE.
  • 00:12:33.070 --> 00:12:34.260
  • PEOPLE WILL GET DRUNK
  • 00:12:34.260 --> 00:12:36.000
  • AND THEN THEY HAVE A WRECK
  • 00:12:36.000 --> 00:12:37.020
  • AND THEY KILL SOMEBODY
  • 00:12:37.020 --> 00:12:38.000
  • AND I...I'M INNOCENT.
  • 00:12:38.000 --> 00:12:39.190
  • I WAS DRUNK.
  • 00:12:39.190 --> 00:12:40.110
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING.
  • 00:12:40.110 --> 00:12:41.170
  • YOU'RE THE ONE THAT CHOSE
  • 00:12:41.170 --> 00:12:42.120
  • TO GET DRUNK AND DRIVE DRUNK.
  • 00:12:42.120 --> 00:12:44.180
  • YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:46.230
  • FOR WHAT THE RESULTS IS.
  • 00:12:47.060 --> 00:12:50.060
  • AMEN.
  • 00:12:50.060 --> 00:12:51.200
  • I AM COUNTERING SO MUCH
  • 00:12:51.200 --> 00:12:53.170
  • OF OUR CULTURE TODAY,
  • 00:12:53.170 --> 00:12:56.140
  • BUT I'M...EVERYTHING I'M SAYING
  • 00:12:56.140 --> 00:12:57.220
  • IS FROM THE WORD.
  • 00:12:57.220 --> 00:13:00.020
  • BROTHERS AND SISTERS,
  • 00:13:00.020 --> 00:13:00.260
  • THIS IS AN UNGODLY CULTURE
  • 00:13:00.260 --> 00:13:02.270
  • SO PAUL SAID,
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:09.130
  • I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:10.290
  • IN THE FLESH.
  • 00:13:10.290 --> 00:13:11.250
  • THOUGH I MIGHT ALSO HAVE
  • 00:13:11.250 --> 00:13:13.040
  • CONFIDENCE IN THE FLESH.
  • 00:13:13.040 --> 00:13:14.140
  • IF ANY OTHER MAN THINKETH
  • 00:13:14.140 --> 00:13:16.030
  • THAT HE HATH WHEREOF TO...
  • 00:13:16.030 --> 00:13:18.020
  • HE MIGHT TRUST IN THE FLESH,
  • 00:13:18.020 --> 00:13:19.170
  • I MORE.
  • 00:13:19.170 --> 00:13:20.060
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:21.010
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S ONE THING
  • 00:13:21.010 --> 00:13:21.200
  • WHEN I SIT HERE AND TALK ABOUT
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:22.290
  • HOW I DON'T TRUST IN MYSELF.
  • 00:13:22.290 --> 00:13:24.280
  • PEOPLE SAY, WELL,
  • 00:13:24.280 --> 00:13:25.220
  • I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY.
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:28.040
  • BUT HERE IS PAUL SAYING,
  • 00:13:28.040 --> 00:13:30.210
  • LOOK, IT'S NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:32.030
  • I DON'T HAVE THINGS
  • 00:13:32.030 --> 00:13:33.070
  • THAT I COULD GLORY IN.
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:35.000
  • HE SAYS IF ANYBODY ELSE
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:36.090
  • IS GOING TO TRUST
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:37.000
  • IN THEIR FLESH,
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:37.210
  • LOOK WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT HIMSELF.
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:40.000
  • HE SAYS, IN VERSE 5,
  • 00:13:40.000 --> 00:13:42.090
  • CIRCUMCISED THE EIGHTH DAY...
  • 00:13:42.090 --> 00:13:43.270
  • WHICH FOR A JEW WAS ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:13:43.270 --> 00:13:45.270
  • ESSENTIAL.
  • 00:13:45.270 --> 00:13:46.180
  • YOU HAD TO DO THAT.
  • 00:13:46.180 --> 00:13:47.270
  • OF THE STOCK OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:49.240
  • OF THE TRIBE OF BENJAMIN,
  • 00:13:49.240 --> 00:13:51.280
  • A HEBREW OF THE HEBREWS;
  • 00:13:51.280 --> 00:13:53.290
  • AS TOUCHING THE LAW, A PHARISEE;
  • 00:13:53.290 --> 00:13:56.120
  • WHICH TO US,
  • 00:13:56.120 --> 00:13:57.230
  • THAT MAY NOT MEAN MUCH,
  • 00:13:57.230 --> 00:13:58.230
  • BUT BOY, IF YOU WERE A PHARISEE
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:00.110
  • IN JESUS' DAY,
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:01.230
  • YOU WERE ONE HOLY PERSON
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:04.010
  • THAT PAID TITHES EVEN DOWN...
  • 00:14:04.010 --> 00:14:06.010
  • YOU COUNTED THE NUMBER OF SEEDS
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:07.260
  • THAT CAME IN YOUR GARDEN
  • 00:14:07.260 --> 00:14:09.060
  • AND YOU SEPARATED
  • 00:14:09.060 --> 00:14:10.070
  • ALL OF THE SEEDS OUT.
  • 00:14:10.070 --> 00:14:11.240
  • YOU MEASURED HOW FAR
  • 00:14:11.240 --> 00:14:12.290
  • YOU COULD WALK ON A SABBATH DAY,
  • 00:14:12.290 --> 00:14:15.070
  • HOW MANY STEPS YOU COULD TAKE,
  • 00:14:15.070 --> 00:14:16.290
  • AND YOU COULDN'T DO ABOVE IT.
  • 00:14:16.290 --> 00:14:19.000
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT THE ESSENES,
  • 00:14:19.000 --> 00:14:20.130
  • THE PEOPLE THAT RAISED
  • 00:14:20.130 --> 00:14:21.170
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST,
  • 00:14:21.170 --> 00:14:23.070
  • THEY WERE SO LEGALISTIC
  • 00:14:23.070 --> 00:14:24.190
  • THAT IN THEIR WRITINGS...
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:25.200
  • THESE ARE THE PEOPLE
  • 00:14:25.200 --> 00:14:26.160
  • THAT WROTE THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS.
  • 00:14:26.160 --> 00:14:28.090
  • DID YOU KNOW IN THEIR WRITINGS
  • 00:14:28.090 --> 00:14:30.040
  • ON THE SABBATH DAY
  • 00:14:30.040 --> 00:14:31.140
  • IT WAS AGAINST THE LAW FOR YOU
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:33.000
  • YOU COULDN'T DO THAT
  • 00:14:37.100 --> 00:14:38.020
  • ON THE SABBATH DAY,
  • 00:14:38.020 --> 00:14:38.260
  • BECAUSE THAT WAS WORK.
  • 00:14:38.260 --> 00:14:41.020
  • THIS IS...THIS IS WHAT
  • 00:14:41.020 --> 00:14:42.130
  • THAT MEANS.
  • 00:14:42.130 --> 00:14:43.220
  • HE WAS A PHARISEE.
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:45.290
  • AND THEN HE SAYS,
  • 00:14:45.290 --> 00:14:46.170
  • CONCERNING ZEAL,
  • 00:14:46.170 --> 00:14:47.290
  • PERSECUTING THE CHURCH;
  • 00:14:47.290 --> 00:14:49.210
  • TOUCHING THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:14:49.210 --> 00:14:51.000
  • WHICH IS OF THE LAW, BLAMELESS.
  • 00:14:51.000 --> 00:14:52.240
  • HE DIDN'T SAY SINLESS
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:53.290
  • BUT BLAMELESS.
  • 00:14:53.290 --> 00:14:55.230
  • BUT LOOK AT THIS,
  • 00:14:55.230 --> 00:14:56.120
  • BUT WHAT THINGS WERE GAIN TO ME,
  • 00:14:56.120 --> 00:14:58.030
  • THOSE I COUNTED LOSS FOR CHRIST.
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:15:01.090
  • AND IF YOU LOOK THIS WORD,
  • 00:15:01.090 --> 00:15:02.100
  • COUNTED, UP, IT MEANS,
  • 00:15:02.100 --> 00:15:03.220
  • TO TAKE BY FORCE, TO SEIZE.
  • 00:15:04.140 --> 00:15:07.140
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:15:07.140 --> 00:15:08.000
  • IT'S NOT JUST NORMAL FOR US
  • 00:15:08.000 --> 00:15:09.270
  • TO SIT THERE
  • 00:15:09.270 --> 00:15:10.210
  • AND NOT COMPARE OURSELVES
  • 00:15:10.210 --> 00:15:11.280
  • AMONG OURSELVES
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:12.240
  • AND NOT TO THINK OF OURSELVES
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.050
  • MORE HIGHLY THAN WE OUGHT
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:15.100
  • TO THINK.
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:15.250
  • THAT'S NOT NORMAL.
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:17.090
  • YOU HAVE TO DO THIS ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:15:17.090 --> 00:15:19.100
  • YOU HAVE TO ON PURPOSE
  • 00:15:19.100 --> 00:15:20.170
  • START ADOPTING THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:22.110
  • THAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:15:22.110 --> 00:15:24.090
  • YOU NEED TO TAKE IT AND SEIZE IT
  • 00:15:24.090 --> 00:15:26.090
  • BY FORCE.
  • 00:15:26.090 --> 00:15:27.160
  • AND THEN HE SAYS IN VERSE 8,
  • 00:15:27.160 --> 00:15:29.110
  • YEA DOUBTLESS, I COUNT
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:30.160
  • ALL THINGS BUT LOSS
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:33.040
  • FOR THE EXCELLENCY
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:34.250
  • OF THE KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:35.210
  • OF CHRIST JESUS MY LORD:
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:38.080
  • FOR WHOM I HAVE SUFFERED
  • 00:15:38.080 --> 00:15:39.180
  • THE LOSS OF ALL THINGS,
  • 00:15:39.180 --> 00:15:41.000
  • AND DO COUNT THEM BUT DUNG,
  • 00:15:41.020 --> 00:15:44.020
  • THAT I MAY WIN CHRIST.
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:45.110
  • THAT'S A POLITE WAY OF SAYING
  • 00:15:45.110 --> 00:15:47.030
  • HE COUNTED THIS STUFF
  • 00:15:47.030 --> 00:15:49.040
  • LIKE MANURE,
  • 00:15:49.040 --> 00:15:50.130
  • OR YOU COULD SUBSTITUTE
  • 00:15:50.130 --> 00:15:51.150
  • OTHER WORDS IN THERE.
  • 00:15:51.150 --> 00:15:54.050
  • YOU KNOW WHAT WE DO
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:54.250
  • WITH OUR MANURE?
  • 00:15:54.250 --> 00:15:56.100
  • WE FRAME IT AND PUT IT
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:15:57.100
  • ON THE WALL
  • 00:15:58.050 --> 00:16:01.070
  • TO SHOW EVERYBODY
  • 00:16:01.070 --> 00:16:03.000
  • ALL OF OUR DIPLOMAS
  • 00:16:03.000 --> 00:16:04.080
  • AND THE...OUR DEGREES.
  • 00:16:04.080 --> 00:16:06.070
  • DID YOU KNOW YOU COULD HAVE
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:07.020
  • 32 DEGREES AND STILL BE FROZEN?
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:09.180
  • PAUL SAID ALL OF THE THINGS
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:19.140
  • THAT WERE GAIN TO ME
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:21.100
  • I COUNTED THEM BUT LOSS
  • 00:16:21.100 --> 00:16:23.170
  • THAT I MAY KNOW CHRIST.
  • 00:16:23.170 --> 00:16:25.180
  • AND PEOPLE THINK, WELL,
  • 00:16:25.180 --> 00:16:26.130
  • I'M NOT SURE I AGREE WITH THAT.
  • 00:16:26.130 --> 00:16:27.220
  • WELL HE JUST WAS USED BY GOD
  • 00:16:27.220 --> 00:16:29.150
  • TO TURN THE WORLD RIGHT-SIDE UP,
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:31.270
  • TO WRITE HALF OF THE BOOKS
  • 00:16:31.270 --> 00:16:33.010
  • OF THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:16:33.010 --> 00:16:34.010
  • HERE WE ARE 2.000 YEARS LATER
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:35.260
  • TALKING ABOUT PAUL.
  • 00:16:35.260 --> 00:16:37.100
  • I WONDER IF PEOPLE WILL BE
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:38.080
  • TALKING ABOUT YOU TWO MINUTES
  • 00:16:38.080 --> 00:16:40.160
  • YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WANT,
  • 00:16:44.160 --> 00:16:45.060
  • BUT THIS IS THE RECIPE,
  • 00:16:45.060 --> 00:16:46.170
  • THIS IS THE GOD-RECIPE
  • 00:16:46.170 --> 00:16:49.020
  • TO HAVE NO CONFIDENCE
  • 00:16:49.020 --> 00:16:50.070
  • IN YOUR FLESH.
  • 00:16:50.070 --> 00:16:51.000
  • TO NOT PROMOTE YOURSELF.
  • 00:16:51.000 --> 00:16:53.050
  • TO RECOGNIZE THAT GOD,
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:54.150
  • WITHOUT YOU, I CAN DO NOTHING.
  • 00:16:54.150 --> 00:16:56.240
  • NOW PRAISE GOD,
  • 00:16:56.240 --> 00:16:57.200
  • I'M NEVER WITHOUT GOD,
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:16:58.280
  • AND SO, THROUGH HIM
  • 00:16:58.280 --> 00:17:00.060
  • I CAN DO ALL THINGS.
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:01.080
  • BUT NOTICE IT SAYS,
  • 00:17:01.080 --> 00:17:02.090
  • THROUGH CHRIST.
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:03.160
  • I CAN DO ALL THINGS
  • 00:17:03.160 --> 00:17:04.170
  • THROUGH CHRIST...
  • 00:17:04.170 --> 00:17:05.270
  • PHILIPPIANS, CHAPTER 4,
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:07.010
  • VERSE 13.
  • 00:17:07.010 --> 00:17:08.070
  • PEOPLE CONVENIENTLY
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:09.120
  • LEAVE THAT OFF AND SAY,
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:10.140
  • I CAN DO ALL THINGS.
  • 00:17:10.140 --> 00:17:11.260
  • THAT'S A LIE.
  • 00:17:11.260 --> 00:17:13.150
  • YOU CAN DO NOTHING
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:14.210
  • WITHOUT CHRIST.
  • 00:17:14.210 --> 00:17:16.020
  • BUT THROUGH CHRIST
  • 00:17:16.020 --> 00:17:17.110
  • YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS.
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:19.070
  • YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:20.060
  • THAT YOU ARE DEPENDENT
  • 00:17:20.060 --> 00:17:21.110
  • UPON GOD.
  • 00:17:21.110 --> 00:17:22.080
  • YOU NEED TO COME
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:22.280
  • TO THE END OF YOURSELF
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:25.030
  • BEFORE YOU FIND
  • 00:17:25.030 --> 00:17:26.050
  • THE BEGINNING OF GOD.
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:28.100
  • AND THAT IS PRECISELY THE REASON
  • 00:17:28.100 --> 00:17:30.080
  • THAT SO MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:31.140
  • ARE STRUGGLING
  • 00:17:31.140 --> 00:17:32.090
  • AND NOTHING IS WORKING
  • 00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:33.130
  • BECAUSE YOU ARE SITTING
  • 00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:35.190
  • ON THE THRONE OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:35.190 --> 00:17:38.060
  • YOU KNOW, THE LORD HAS ASKED ME
  • 00:17:43.130 --> 00:17:44.180
  • TO DO SOME THINGS
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:45.100
  • THAT IN THE NATURAL LOOK CRAZY.
  • 00:17:45.100 --> 00:17:48.060
  • BUT BACK MARCH THE 23RD, 1968,
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:51.090
  • I HAD THIS ENCOUNTER,
  • 00:17:51.090 --> 00:17:52.100
  • AND MAN, I RAN UP A WHITE FLAG
  • 00:17:52.100 --> 00:17:55.100
  • AND I SAID, OH GOD, FORGIVE ME
  • 00:17:55.100 --> 00:17:57.000
  • OF MY SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:17:58.160
  • AND I REALIZED THAT, MAN,
  • 00:17:58.160 --> 00:17:59.250
  • ALL OF MY RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:17:59.250 --> 00:18:01.050
  • WAS LIKE FILTHY RAGS
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:03.180
  • AND I JUST SUBMITTED MYSELF
  • 00:18:03.180 --> 00:18:05.270
  • TO GOD.
  • 00:18:05.270 --> 00:18:06.140
  • NOW I'VE NEVER DONE IT
  • 00:18:06.140 --> 00:18:07.010
  • PERFECTLY, BUT THAT'S MY DESIRE
  • 00:18:07.010 --> 00:18:09.180
  • IS TO BE SUBMITTED UNTO GOD.
  • 00:18:09.180 --> 00:18:11.150
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT,
  • 00:18:11.150 --> 00:18:12.110
  • WHEN GOD ASKS ME
  • 00:18:12.110 --> 00:18:13.130
  • TO DO SOMETHING,
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:15.180
  • I DON'T SIT THERE AND DEBATE IT.
  • 00:18:15.180 --> 00:18:18.080
  • NOW I'M NOT SAYING
  • 00:18:18.080 --> 00:18:18.280
  • I DO EVERYTHING PERFECTLY.
  • 00:18:18.280 --> 00:18:20.010
  • BUT I'M SAYING AS SOON AS I KNOW
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:22.020
  • IT'S GOD,
  • 00:18:22.020 --> 00:18:23.040
  • THERE IS NOT GOING TO
  • 00:18:23.040 --> 00:18:24.030
  • BE AN ARGUMENT WITH ME.
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:26.240
  • A FRIEND OF MINE, HAPPY CALDWELL
  • 00:18:26.240 --> 00:18:28.140
  • AFTER 30-SOMETHING YEARS,
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:30.280
  • GOD TOLD HIM TO TURN HIS ENTIRE
  • 00:18:30.280 --> 00:18:33.020
  • MINISTRY OVER TO ANOTHER PERSON.
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:35.060
  • AND HE HAD, I THINK IT WAS
  • 00:18:35.060 --> 00:18:37.000
  • $30 MILLION WORTH OF BUILDINGS
  • 00:18:38.230 --> 00:18:41.230
  • AND THINGS THAT HE HAD BUILT
  • 00:18:41.230 --> 00:18:43.020
  • OVER HIS LIFETIME.
  • 00:18:43.020 --> 00:18:44.130
  • AND HE JUST TURNED IT OVER
  • 00:18:44.130 --> 00:18:45.230
  • TO ANOTHER PERSON
  • 00:18:45.230 --> 00:18:46.180
  • AND WALKED AWAY
  • 00:18:46.180 --> 00:18:47.120
  • AND HE STARTED
  • 00:18:47.120 --> 00:18:48.060
  • A TELEVISION NETWORK
  • 00:18:48.060 --> 00:18:49.170
  • AND IT STARTED FROM SCRATCH
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:51.010
  • WHEN HE WAS IN HIS 70s.
  • 00:18:51.010 --> 00:18:52.160
  • AND HE GOT UP AND TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:54.010
  • THIS AT A MINISTER'S CONFERENCE,
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:55.280
  • AND HE SAID, SOME OF YOU
  • 00:18:55.280 --> 00:18:56.240
  • ARE GETTING OLDER AND IT'S TIME
  • 00:18:56.240 --> 00:18:58.070
  • THAT YOU PASS THE BATON
  • 00:18:58.070 --> 00:18:59.100
  • TO SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:18:59.100 --> 00:19:00.250
  • HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD BE WILLING
  • 00:19:00.250 --> 00:19:02.170
  • IF GOD TOLD YOU
  • 00:19:02.170 --> 00:19:03.200
  • TO TURN YOUR MINISTRY
  • 00:19:03.200 --> 00:19:04.210
  • OVER TO SOMEBODY ELSE?
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:06.080
  • AND HE MADE US THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:19:06.080 --> 00:19:08.150
  • AND SO, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:09.190
  • I WAS FOLLOWING THE LEAD,
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:12.020
  • AND IT DIDN'T TAKE ME MORE THAN
  • 00:19:12.020 --> 00:19:13.130
  • FIVE SECONDS.
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:14.080
  • TEN SECONDS, MAXIMUM.
  • 00:19:14.080 --> 00:19:15.200
  • AND I SAID, GOD, IF YOU TOLD ME
  • 00:19:15.200 --> 00:19:16.270
  • TO DO THAT,
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:17.160
  • IF YOU TOLD ME TO MOVE
  • 00:19:17.160 --> 00:19:18.120
  • TO AFRICA
  • 00:19:18.120 --> 00:19:19.080
  • AND LIVE IN A GRASS HUT,
  • 00:19:19.080 --> 00:19:20.180
  • I WOULD BE GLAD TO DO IT.
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:22.280
  • AND WE, NOW, HAVE,
  • 00:19:22.280 --> 00:19:23.260
  • I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH,
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:24.240
  • BUT $120 MILLION WORTH OF ASSETS
  • 00:19:25.210 --> 00:19:28.210
  • IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:19:28.210 --> 00:19:29.200
  • AND SOME AWESOME THINGS
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:30.180
  • ARE HAPPENING
  • 00:19:30.180 --> 00:19:31.030
  • AND I WOULD WALK AWAY FROM IT
  • 00:19:31.030 --> 00:19:32.070
  • IN A SECOND.
  • 00:19:32.070 --> 00:19:33.070
  • BECAUSE IT'S NOT MINE.
  • 00:19:33.070 --> 00:19:34.100
  • GOD'S THE ONE
  • 00:19:34.100 --> 00:19:35.010
  • THAT GAVE IT TO ME.
  • 00:19:35.010 --> 00:19:35.260
  • I CAN'T TAKE CREDIT
  • 00:19:35.260 --> 00:19:37.050
  • AS IF I DID THIS.
  • 00:19:37.050 --> 00:19:39.010
  • GOD'S THE ONE
  • 00:19:39.010 --> 00:19:39.190
  • THAT GAVE IT TO ME,
  • 00:19:39.190 --> 00:19:41.240
  • AND I WOULD WALK AWAY
  • 00:19:41.240 --> 00:19:42.200
  • FROM EVERYTHING.
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:45.060
  • IF GOD SPEAKS TO YOU
  • 00:19:45.060 --> 00:19:46.200
  • AND TELLS YOU SOME...
  • 00:19:46.200 --> 00:19:47.210
  • AND YOU ARE GOING TO DEBATE
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:49.080
  • WHETHER YOU DO IT OR NOT?
  • 00:19:49.080 --> 00:19:51.220
  • YOU HAVE NOT COME TO THE END
  • 00:19:51.220 --> 00:19:52.250
  • OF YOURSELF.
  • 00:19:52.250 --> 00:19:54.130
  • YOU ARE STILL RULING YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:54.130 --> 00:19:57.020
  • AND I GO BACK TO A VERSE
  • 00:19:57.020 --> 00:19:57.280
  • THAT I USED EARLIER,
  • 00:19:57.280 --> 00:19:59.000
  • JEREMIAH, CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:19:59.000 --> 00:20:00.040
  • VERSE 23, O LORD, I KNOW
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:01.290
  • THAT THE WAY OF MAN
  • 00:20:01.290 --> 00:20:03.080
  • IS NOT IN HIMSELF:
  • 00:20:03.080 --> 00:20:05.250
  • IT IS NOT IN MAN THAT WALKS
  • 00:20:05.250 --> 00:20:08.020
  • TO DIRECT HIS OWN STEPS.
  • 00:20:08.020 --> 00:20:09.290
  • IF YOUR LIFE IS IN A MESS,
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:11.260
  • SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER,
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:12.270
  • YOU HAVE BEEN RUNNING YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:15.170
  • YOU HAVEN'T COME TO THE END
  • 00:20:15.170 --> 00:20:16.240
  • OF YOURSELF.
  • 00:20:16.240 --> 00:20:18.050
  • YOU HAVEN'T RUN UP A WHITE FLAG
  • 00:20:18.050 --> 00:20:19.260
  • AND YOU HAVEN'T SURRENDERED.
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:22.080
  • AND THE REASON YOU'RE IN A MESS
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:24.000
  • IS BECAUSE SATAN
  • 00:20:24.000 --> 00:20:24.270
  • IS JUST BETTER AT THIS
  • 00:20:24.270 --> 00:20:25.250
  • THAN YOU ARE.
  • 00:20:25.250 --> 00:20:27.040
  • IF YOU FIGHT HIM
  • 00:20:27.040 --> 00:20:27.210
  • IN YOUR OWN WISDOM...
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:28.240
  • YOUR OWN STRENGTH,
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:30.000
  • YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE
  • 00:20:30.000 --> 00:20:31.000
  • EVERY SINGLE TIME.
  • 00:20:31.000 --> 00:20:33.070
  • YOU NEED TO COME TO THE END
  • 00:20:33.070 --> 00:20:34.100
  • OF YOURSELF.
  • 00:20:34.100 --> 00:20:37.040
  • AND I COULD SPEND ANOTHER HOUR
  • 00:20:37.040 --> 00:20:39.230
  • TEACHING ON THIS.
  • 00:20:39.230 --> 00:20:40.100
  • I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT.
  • 00:20:40.100 --> 00:20:41.050
  • BUT IT'S A PROCESS.
  • 00:20:41.050 --> 00:20:43.060
  • YOU DON'T JUST MAKE
  • 00:20:43.060 --> 00:20:45.050
  • THIS DECISION ONE TIME
  • 00:20:45.050 --> 00:20:46.110
  • AND NEVER HAVE ANOTHER PROBLEM.
  • 00:20:46.110 --> 00:20:48.130
  • I'VE HA...I'VE PREACHED
  • 00:20:48.130 --> 00:20:49.050
  • ON THINGS LIKE THIS BEFORE
  • 00:20:49.050 --> 00:20:51.050
  • AND I'VE HAD PEOPLE COME UP
  • 00:20:51.050 --> 00:20:52.220
  • AND SAY, WOULD YOU PLEASE
  • 00:20:52.220 --> 00:20:53.160
  • CAST SELF OUT OF ME?
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:56.240
  • I CAN'T CAST SELF OUT OF YOU.
  • 00:20:56.240 --> 00:20:58.260
  • THE ONLY WAY I CAN GET RID OF
  • 00:20:58.260 --> 00:20:59.290
  • YOUR SELF IS TO KILL YOU
  • 00:20:59.290 --> 00:21:01.180
  • AND THEN YOUR SELF
  • 00:21:01.180 --> 00:21:03.080
  • WILL STAY HERE AND YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:21:03.080 --> 00:21:04.170
  • WOULD GO TO BE WITH THE LORD,
  • 00:21:04.170 --> 00:21:06.100
  • AND YOU'LL JUST BE AWESOME
  • 00:21:06.100 --> 00:21:07.180
  • IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:08.210
  • BUT BARRING ANYTHING SHORT
  • 00:21:08.210 --> 00:21:10.240
  • OF KILLING YOU,
  • 00:21:10.240 --> 00:21:11.270
  • I CAN'T GET RID OF YOUR SELF.
  • 00:21:13.090 --> 00:21:16.090

  • TO BE RID OF THIS SELF-CONTROL,
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:33.010
  • SELF-DOMINANCE
  • 00:21:33.010 --> 00:21:33.270
  • MORE THAN YOU WANT IT.

  • LET ME CLOSE WITH THIS PASSAGE

  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:03.250
  • I ALSO SUFFER THESE THINGS:
  • 00:22:03.250 --> 00:22:05.160
  • NEVERTHELESS I AM NOT ASHAMED:
  • 00:22:05.160 --> 00:22:08.000
  • FOR I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED,
  • 00:22:08.000 --> 00:22:10.000
  • AND AM PERSUADED
  • 00:22:10.000 --> 00:22:12.070

  • 00:22:12.070 --> 00:22:14.140
  • WHICH I HAVE COMMITTED
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:16.000

  • GOD'S NOT GOING TO FORCE THIS
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:28.190

  • ABOUT YOURSELF,
  • 00:22:40.030 --> 00:22:41.200
  • AND IT'S CONTRARY TO EVERYTHING
  • 00:22:41.200 --> 00:22:42.270
  • YOU'VE BEEN TAUGHT.
  • 00:22:42.270 --> 00:22:44.030

  • AND COMMIT YOURSELF,
  • 00:22:47.230 --> 00:22:50.150
  • AND SAY, GOD, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:22:50.150 --> 00:22:51.110
  • PUT YOU IN CHARGE OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:22:51.110 --> 00:22:53.170
  • I'M GOING TO QUIT

  • 00:22:54.120 --> 00:22:57.090
  • I WANT YOU TO BE MY GOD.
  • 00:22:57.090 --> 00:22:59.050
