  • THERE'S ACTUALLY AN INTERESTING
  • 00:03:04.260 --> 00:03:07.260
  • PROGRESSION HERE.

  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:03:10.180 --> 00:03:12.170
  • I HAVE THIS CONVICTION THAT THE
  • 00:03:12.170 --> 00:03:14.160
  • CHRIST IS REALLY GOOD, AND WE
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:15.070
  • KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE MADE
  • 00:03:15.070 --> 00:03:15.280
  • ALIVE IN CHRIST.
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:16.120
  • WE KNOW WHAT'S IT'S LIKE TO BE
  • 00:03:16.120 --> 00:03:17.060
  • DEAD AND MADE ALIVE.
  • 00:03:17.060 --> 00:03:18.200
  • WE KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO DIE
  • 00:03:18.200 --> 00:03:19.190
  • TO AN OLD MAN, OR AN OLD MAN
  • 00:03:19.190 --> 00:03:20.250
  • DYING, AND WE BECOME A NEW
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:21.280
  • CREATION.
  • 00:03:21.280 --> 00:03:22.210
  • THE CHURCH HAS GOT THAT ONE
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:24.090
  • NAILED DOWN.
  • 00:03:24.090 --> 00:03:25.070
  • AND THE NEXT ONE IS "RAISED US
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:26.210
  • UP."
  • 00:03:26.210 --> 00:03:28.160
  • WE NOW ARE NO LONGER ON THE
  • 00:03:28.160 --> 00:03:29.140
  • GROUND, DEAD.
  • 00:03:29.140 --> 00:03:30.080
  • WE'RE ALIVE.
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:30.270
  • BUT NOW, WE'RE ACTUALLY
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:31.180
  • STANDING ON OUR TWO FEET.
  • 00:03:31.180 --> 00:03:34.160
  • AND I THINK THE CHURCH IS
  • 00:03:34.160 --> 00:03:35.190
  • HONEST.
  • 00:03:35.190 --> 00:03:36.210
  • I THINK THEY'VE GOT A REALLY
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:37.170
  • GOOD HANDLE, WE'VE GOT A REALLY
  • 00:03:37.170 --> 00:03:38.180
  • GOOD HANDLE ON THAT.
  • 00:03:38.180 --> 00:03:39.270
  • BUT THE THIRD ONE -- I FEEL
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:40.210
  • LIKE WE'RE IN A SEASON, RIGHT
  • 00:03:40.210 --> 00:03:41.120
  • AND I DON'T WANNA SAY WE'VE
  • 00:03:43.280 --> 00:03:44.180
  • ENTERED IT, BUT WE'VE BEEN IN
  • 00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:45.090
  • IT FOR A WHILE, WHERE THE LORD
  • 00:03:45.090 --> 00:03:46.000
  • IS ACTUALLY BRINGING THE BODY
  • 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:46.210
  • OF CHRIST TO A MUCH BETTER--
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:47.140
  • NOT JUST AN UNDERSTANDING, BUT
  • 00:03:47.140 --> 00:03:48.290
  • AN EXPERIENCE IN ACTUALITY OF
  • 00:03:48.290 --> 00:03:51.170
  • WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO STICK
  • 00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:53.110
  • TOGETHER IN THE HEAVENLY
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:54.000
  • PLACES.
  • 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:55.140
  • AND THAT'S THE SEASON WE'RE IN,
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:56.270
  • RIGHT NOW, IN THE BODY OF
  • 00:03:56.270 --> 00:03:57.160
  • CHRIST.
  • 00:03:57.160 --> 00:03:58.050
  • WE KNOW WE'VE BEEN MADE ALIVE,
  • 00:03:58.050 --> 00:03:59.010
  • NEW CREATION, NOW WE'RE
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.240
  • STANDING ON OUR OWN TWO FEET,
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:02.010
  • SO TO SPEAK.
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:04.030
  • AND WE ARE STRONG, WE'VE
  • 00:04:04.030 --> 00:04:04.220
  • CONFIDENT IN HIM.
  • 00:04:04.220 --> 00:04:06.100
  • AND, NOW, WHAT THE LORD IS
  • 00:04:06.100 --> 00:04:07.090
  • DOING -- HE'S GIVING US THE
  • 00:04:07.090 --> 00:04:08.250
  • ABILITY TO SEE THINGS FROM HIS
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:09.260
  • PERSPECTIVE -- NOT LOOKING TO
  • 00:04:09.260 --> 00:04:12.200
  • HIM, ALTHOUGH THAT IS ALWAYS
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.130
  • THE CASE, BUT LEARNING TO LOOK
  • 00:04:14.130 --> 00:04:15.280
  • AND THERE'S A KINGDOM
  • 00:04:20.100 --> 00:04:20.270
  • PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:21.270
  • AND SO, WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:22.180
  • "KINGDOM" AROUND HERE OR AROUND
  • 00:04:22.180 --> 00:04:23.150
  • THE BODY OF CHRIST, I BELIEVE
  • 00:04:23.150 --> 00:04:24.170
  • THAT'S WHY THE LORD'S
  • 00:04:24.170 --> 00:04:25.240
  • HIGHLIGHTING THE WORD "KINGDOM"
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:27.020
  • IN OUR DAY AND AGE.
  • 00:04:27.020 --> 00:04:27.270
  • IT'LL NEVER GO AWAY, AS FAR AS
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:29.060
  • THE HIGHLIGHT, BUT THE LORD IS
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:31.210
  • LIKE HE'S JUST GOT HIS THUMB ON
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:33.090
  • THIS, RIGHT NOW, AND IT'S WHAT
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:34.030
  • IT MEANS TO SIT TOGETHER.
  • 00:04:34.030 --> 00:04:34.290
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE READ THIS
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:35.200
  • PASSAGE, A LOT OF THE CHURCH,
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.240
  • TO BE HONEST WITH YOU -- MAYBE
  • 00:04:36.240 --> 00:04:38.020
  • NOT IN THIS ROOM AS MUCH -- BUT
  • 00:04:38.020 --> 00:04:39.090
  • A LOT OF THE CHURCH THINK "SIT
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:42.020
  • TOGETHER IN HEAVENLY PLACES" --
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:42.260
  • THEY PUT IT OFF FOR ANOTHER
  • 00:04:42.260 --> 00:04:43.190
  • DAY.
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:44.060
  • AND THEY PUT IT-- YOU KNOW,
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:46.290
  • IT'S AMAZING WHAT THE CHURCH
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:47.190
  • DOES WITH THE BLESSINGS OF THE
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:48.240
  • LORD.
  • 00:04:48.240 --> 00:04:49.060
  • IT'S ALWAYS FOR ANOTHER DAY
  • 00:04:49.060 --> 00:04:50.010
  • UNTIL WE GET A FEW HOOPS
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:50.290
  • JUMPED THROUGH.
  • 00:04:50.290 --> 00:04:51.250
  • BUT ANYTHING THAT'S THE
  • 00:04:51.250 --> 00:04:54.030
  • OPPOSITE OF BLESSING -- IT'S
  • 00:04:54.030 --> 00:04:55.250
  • AMAZING HOW MUCH THE CHURCH
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:57.020
  • EMBRACES IT FOR THE NOW.
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:04:58.080
  • AND IT'S A GREAT MISTAKE THE
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:05:00.020
  • CHURCH HAS MADE.
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:00.280
  • AND I REMEMBER IN COLLEGE,
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:02.020
  • I WAS IN A CLASS, UM,
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:03.030
  • PROFESSOR TOM PRATT.
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:04.160
  • HE'S A...WONDERFUL MAN.
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:06.010
  • HE REALLY SHAPED MY LIFE.
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:07.050
  • HE ACTUALLY INSTILLED IN ME A
  • 00:05:07.050 --> 00:05:08.290
  • DEEP LOVE AND A PASSION FOR THE
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:10.130
  • APOSTLE PAUL.
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:12.280
  • AND HIS WHOLE THESIS AND
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:13.160
  • DOCTORATE WAS ON THE LIFE
  • 00:05:13.160 --> 00:05:14.090
  • OF PAUL.
  • 00:05:14.100 --> 00:05:17.100
  • AND I REMEMBER ONE DAY IN HIS
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:18.010
  • CLASS, UM, WE WERE STUDYING HIS
  • 00:05:18.010 --> 00:05:19.070
  • LIFE AND I WOULD NORMALLY
  • 00:05:19.070 --> 00:05:21.040
  • SKIP OVER THE INTRODUCTION
  • 00:05:21.040 --> 00:05:22.120
  • OF ALL OF PAUL'S LETTERS,
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:23.050
  • THE 13 EPISTLES.
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:24.040
  • I WOULD SKIP OVER 'EM AND GET
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:25.290
  • KIND OF THE MEAT OF THE BOOK.
  • 00:05:25.290 --> 00:05:27.190
  • AND ONE DAY IN CLASS, I THOUGHT
  • 00:05:27.190 --> 00:05:29.040
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID: DON'T
  • 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:30.040
  • SKIP THE INTRODUCTION.
  • 00:05:30.040 --> 00:05:31.190
  • THERE'S SOMETHING THERE.
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:32.070
  • AND SO, I STARTED SLOWING DOWN.
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:34.080
  • I GO BACK.
  • 00:05:34.080 --> 00:05:34.250
  • AND MOST OF HIS INTRODUCTION'S
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:36.080
  • LIKE: TO SO-AND-SO.
  • 00:05:36.080 --> 00:05:37.280
  • HEY, MAKE SURE YOU TELL THAT
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:38.220
  • PERSON HI FOR ME.
  • 00:05:38.220 --> 00:05:39.210
  • AND DON'T FORGET THAT FAMILY.
  • 00:05:39.210 --> 00:05:41.010
  • IT WAS ALL JUST, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:42.040
  • GREETINGS.
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:43.010
  • BUT I NOTICED THERE WAS A
  • 00:05:43.010 --> 00:05:44.120
  • PHRASE SPECIFICALLY IN
  • 00:05:44.120 --> 00:05:44.290
  • EPHESIANS.
  • 00:05:44.290 --> 00:05:45.270
  • IT SAID "TO THE SAINTS IN
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:47.020
  • EPHESUS."
  • 00:05:47.020 --> 00:05:49.190
  • IT'S REALLY INTRIGUING THAT HE
  • 00:05:49.190 --> 00:05:51.080
  • ADDRESSES THEM AS SAINTS.
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:52.070
  • HE DOESN'T ADDRESS THEM AS
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:53.220
  • SINNERS.
  • 00:05:53.220 --> 00:05:54.260
  • HE DOESN'T NOT NOT ADDRESS
  • 00:05:54.260 --> 00:05:56.250
  • THEM.
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:05:57.170
  • HE SAID, SPECIFICALLY, "YOU ARE
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:05:58.090
  • THE SAINTS IN EPHESUS."
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:06:00.160
  • AND I BELIEVE ONE OF THE
  • 00:06:00.160 --> 00:06:01.140
  • REASONS WHY HE DID THAT -- HE
  • 00:06:01.140 --> 00:06:02.050
  • WAS STARTING FROM THE GET-GO:
  • 00:06:02.050 --> 00:06:02.260
  • THIS IS WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:06:02.260 --> 00:06:03.180
  • WHEN YOU'RE A SAINT, EVERYTHING
  • 00:06:03.180 --> 00:06:05.230
  • THE LORD PUTS IN YOUR VIEW IS
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:07.290
  • MADE AVAILABLE FOR TODAY.
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:10.010
  • BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A SINNER'S
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:13.040
  • MINDSET, YOU ALWAYS PUT THE
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.220
  • BLESSINGS OF THE LORD, THE
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:15.150
  • PROMISES OF THE LORD, UNTIL
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:16.150
  • ANOTHER DAY.
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:17.250
  • AND SO, WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:19.240
  • THAT WHEN WE READ THE-- WHEN WE
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:21.150
  • READ SCRIPTURE, IT'S ACTUALLY
  • 00:06:21.150 --> 00:06:22.290
  • FROM A SAINT PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:24.220
  • THIS IS HOW THE KINGDOM IS.
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:26.130
  • IF I CAN SUMMARIZE IT: WHAT YOU
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:28.030
  • SEE IN THE KINGDOM, IT MEANS
  • 00:06:28.030 --> 00:06:29.080
  • YOU CAN HAVE IT.
  • 00:06:29.080 --> 00:06:31.050
  • NOW, THE PROPHETIC WORD MAY BE
  • 00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:33.200
  • FOR ANOTHER DAY, BUT IF YOU SEE
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:34.230
  • IT, THAT MEANS YOU HAVE ACCESS
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:35.250
  • TO IT, TODAY.
  • 00:06:35.250 --> 00:06:36.080
  • THIS WAS WHY DAVID WAS ABLE TO
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:41.010
  • BREAK THROUGH THE PARADIGM OF
  • 00:06:41.010 --> 00:06:43.010
  • HIS DAY AND BE KNOWN AS THE MAN
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:44.190
  • AFTER GOD'S HEART.
  • 00:06:44.190 --> 00:06:45.290
  • IN PSALMS 68 OR 69, THERE'S-- I
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:47.160
  • KNOW IT'S ON THE RIGHT PAGE,
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:49.140
  • RIGHT COLUMN, ABOUT 1 INCH FROM
  • 00:06:49.140 --> 00:06:50.170
  • THE BOTTOM.
  • 00:06:50.170 --> 00:06:51.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:52.010
  • RIGHT THERE, THERE'S THIS--
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:06:52.210
  • (LAUGHING) I'M HORRIBLE WITH
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:53.260
  • REFERENCES, BUT I KNOW EXACTLY
  • 00:06:53.260 --> 00:06:55.020
  • WHERE ON THE PAGE JUST ABOUT
  • 00:06:55.020 --> 00:06:56.030
  • EVERY SCRIPTURE IS.
  • 00:06:56.030 --> 00:06:57.200
  • AND THERE'S THIS ONE MOMENT --
  • 00:06:57.200 --> 00:06:59.080
  • HE SAID, "GOD, YOU'RE MORE--
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:01.030
  • YOU'RE AFT-- YOU'RE NOT JUST
  • 00:07:01.030 --> 00:07:02.280
  • ABOUT THE SACRIFICE OF ANIMALS
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:04.250
  • OR BULLS WITH HOODS AND HORNS;
  • 00:07:04.250 --> 00:07:07.050
  • YOU'RE AFTER THE HEART."
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:08.260
  • SO, DAVID WAS ABLE TO TAKE
  • 00:07:08.260 --> 00:07:11.110
  • SOMETHING THAT, HONESTLY,
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.000
  • WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE REALLY
  • 00:07:12.000 --> 00:07:13.190
  • MADE AVAILABLE YET.
  • 00:07:13.190 --> 00:07:14.120
  • BUT DAVID SAID HE CRACKED-- HE
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:16.170
  • HACKED THE CODE.
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:19.060
  • HE GOT INTO THE COMPUTER SYSTEM
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:20.090
  • OF-- OF THE UNIVERSE AND HACKED
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.290
  • IT AND REALIZED: OH!
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:23.080
  • THIS IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:25.020
  • HE PENETRATED THROUGH THE
  • 00:07:25.020 --> 00:07:26.270
  • MATRIX, IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:07:26.270 --> 00:07:28.000
  • AND THIS IS WHY ABRAHAM WAS
  • 00:07:28.000 --> 00:07:29.030
  • ABLE TO WALK IN A REALM OF
  • 00:07:29.090 --> 00:07:32.090
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS BEFORE IT WAS
  • 00:07:32.090 --> 00:07:32.290
  • GOING TO BE MADE AVAILABLE TO
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:34.050
  • EVERYONE.
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:37.170
  • AND SO, THAT WHEN YOU SEE
  • 00:07:37.170 --> 00:07:38.060
  • SOMETHING IN THE KINGDOM, THERE
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:39.200
  • MAY BE A PROPHETIC WORD, LIKE:
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:41.190
  • IT'LL HAPPEN IN 20 YEARS, OR
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:42.090
  • THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 00:07:42.090 --> 00:07:43.000
  • AND THAT'S-- THAT'S TRUE.
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:44.130
  • BUT IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:46.070
  • SOMETHING IN THE KINGDOM, I
  • 00:07:46.070 --> 00:07:47.120
  • BELIEVE, YOU ACTUALLY HAVE THE
  • 00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:48.210
  • ABILITY TO PULL IT INTO THE
  • 00:07:48.210 --> 00:07:49.130
  • PRESENT.
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:51.090
  • AND SO, WHEN HE SAYS "SIT IN
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:52.210
  • HEAVENLY PLACES," IT IS
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:54.070
  • ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT NOW, THE
  • 00:07:54.070 --> 00:07:55.200
  • PRESENT.
  • 00:07:55.200 --> 00:07:56.220
  • YOU'RE ACTUALLY SITTING IN
  • 00:07:56.220 --> 00:07:58.240
  • HEAVENLY PLACES, SEEING THINGS
  • 00:07:58.240 --> 00:07:59.160
  • FROM HIS PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:07:59.160 --> 00:08:00.240
  • NOW, IN VERSE 10, THERE'S A
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:02.030
  • WORD IN THERE.
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:03.010
  • IT SAYS "WORKMANSHIP."
  • 00:08:03.010 --> 00:08:03.290
  • THE WORD "WORKMANSHIP" IS A
  • 00:08:03.290 --> 00:08:05.000
  • FASCINATING WORD FOR SO MANY
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:05.210
  • REASONS.
  • 00:08:05.210 --> 00:08:08.020
  • ANOTHER WORD THAT I PREFER,
  • 00:08:08.020 --> 00:08:09.000
  • BECAUSE IT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:10.100
  • RELATABLE IN OUR CONTEXT, AND
  • 00:08:10.100 --> 00:08:12.110
  • IT'S THE WORD "MASTERPIECE."
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:14.070
  • THE WORD "WORKMANSHIP" ACTUALLY
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:15.190
  • MEANS MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:08:15.190 --> 00:08:16.220
  • SO, WHAT THE VERSE IS SAYING,
  • 00:08:16.220 --> 00:08:17.270
  • WHAT PAUL IS SAYING IS THAT WE
  • 00:08:17.270 --> 00:08:19.150
  • ARE GOD'S MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:08:19.150 --> 00:08:20.200
  • WE ARE HIS COLUMN.
  • 00:08:20.200 --> 00:08:22.160
  • WE ARE THE SONG THAT HE HAD IN
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:24.030
  • HIS HEART.
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:25.030
  • AND HE PLAYED THE SONG AND HE
  • 00:08:25.030 --> 00:08:26.250
  • CREATED YOU.
  • 00:08:26.250 --> 00:08:27.110
  • WE ARE HIS MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:30.040
  • NOW, THE CHALLENGE WITH THE
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:30.290
  • WORD "MASTERPIECE," ESPECIALLY
  • 00:08:30.290 --> 00:08:32.090
  • IN A NATURAL CONTEXT, IS THIS:
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:34.020
  • THE REASON WHY IT'S CALLED
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:36.020
  • "MASTERPIECE" IS BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:37.170
  • RARE.
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:39.150
  • KRIS TALKED ABOUT YESTERDAY
  • 00:08:39.150 --> 00:08:41.260
  • GOING TO PARIS AND BEING
  • 00:08:41.260 --> 00:08:43.110
  • SURPRISED AT THE SIZE OF THE
  • 00:08:43.110 --> 00:08:44.180
  • MONA LISA.
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:45.130
  • I REMEMBER HAVING THE SAME
  • 00:08:45.130 --> 00:08:46.020
  • EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:08:46.020 --> 00:08:48.060
  • I'M LIKE, "WHERE'S MONA LISA?"
  • 00:08:48.060 --> 00:08:48.270
  • AND IT'S THIS LITTLE PAINTING
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:50.090
  • ON THE WALL.
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:51.120
  • AND THAT'S OBVIOUSLY CONSIDERED
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:53.190
  • A MASTERPIECE 'CAUSE THERE'S
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:55.020
  • NOT VERY MANY OF THEM LIKE
  • 00:08:55.020 --> 00:08:56.050
  • THAT.
  • 00:08:56.050 --> 00:08:56.230
  • SO, MASTERPIECES IN A NATURAL
  • 00:08:56.230 --> 00:08:58.150
  • SENSE ARE RARE.
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:09:00.200
  • THAT'S WHY THEY GET THE NAME
  • 00:09:00.200 --> 00:09:01.100
  • MASTER-PIECE.
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:02.270
  • BUT, REMEMBER, WE ARE HIS
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:03.190
  • MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:09:03.190 --> 00:09:04.270
  • HE'S THE ONLY ONE THAT WITH
  • 00:09:04.270 --> 00:09:06.150
  • EVERY THOUGHT, EVERY IDEA,
  • 00:09:06.150 --> 00:09:08.040
  • EVERY BREATH HE CAN CREATE
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:09.160
  • MASTERPIECES IN HIS SLEEP.
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:13.050
  • SO, WHEN HE CREATED YOU, IT'S
  • 00:09:13.050 --> 00:09:14.120
  • TRULY A MASTER PIECE.
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:16.120
  • AND WHAT'S FASCINATING ABOUT
  • 00:09:16.120 --> 00:09:17.250
  • ARTISTS, SPECIFICALLY IN THIS
  • 00:09:17.250 --> 00:09:19.060
  • CONTEXT, WHEN THEY CREATE
  • 00:09:19.060 --> 00:09:20.160
  • SOMETHING, WHEN YOU TALK TO
  • 00:09:20.160 --> 00:09:21.260
  • SOMEBODY THAT HAS CREATED--
  • 00:09:21.260 --> 00:09:23.110
  • MAYBE THEY WROTE A SONG OR
  • 00:09:23.110 --> 00:09:24.130
  • PAINTED A PAINTING THAT WASN'T
  • 00:09:24.130 --> 00:09:26.010
  • JUST ANY PAINTING.
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:27.220
  • IT WAS SOMETHING DEEPER.
  • 00:09:27.220 --> 00:09:28.250
  • WHENEVER YOU TALK TO THE ARTIST
  • 00:09:28.250 --> 00:09:31.020
  • ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE DOING AND
  • 00:09:31.020 --> 00:09:33.100
  • TRYING TO CONVEY IN THAT SONG,
  • 00:09:33.100 --> 00:09:34.150
  • OR MAYBE IT WAS A BOOK, OR SOME
  • 00:09:34.150 --> 00:09:36.170
  • EXPRESSION OF THIS THING,
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:38.210
  • YOU'LL FIND OUT THAT THAT
  • 00:09:38.210 --> 00:09:39.190
  • MASTERPIECE IS ALMOST LIKE THEY
  • 00:09:39.190 --> 00:09:41.290
  • CUT OFF THEIR ARM AND IT'S A
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:43.130
  • PART OF THEM THAT THEY WANT YOU
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:45.060
  • TO SEE.
  • 00:09:45.060 --> 00:09:45.290
  • SO, I'D LIKE TO PROPOSE TO YOU
  • 00:09:45.290 --> 00:09:47.160
  • THAT WHEN WE ARE GOD'S
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:48.170
  • MASTERPIECE, HE TOOK A PART OF
  • 00:09:48.170 --> 00:09:49.290
  • HIMSELF AND HE CREATED YOU
  • 00:09:50.020 --> 00:09:53.020
  • BECAUSE HE WANTED EVERYONE TO
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:53.230
  • SEE AN ASPECT OF HIS NATURE.
  • 00:09:53.230 --> 00:09:55.040
  • THIS IS WHY HE'S ABLE TO
  • 00:09:55.040 --> 00:09:57.290
  • CREATE, AT THIS CURRENT
  • 00:09:57.290 --> 00:09:59.290
  • RATE, OVER 7 BILLION
  • 00:09:59.290 --> 00:10:00.220
  • MASTERPIECES ALIVE ON THE
  • 00:10:00.220 --> 00:10:01.250
  • PLANET.
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:04.070
  • AND EVERY ONE OF THE PEOPLE ON
  • 00:10:04.070 --> 00:10:04.280
  • THE PLANET HAVE A
  • 00:10:04.280 --> 00:10:05.170
  • RESPONSIBILITY, WHETHER THEY
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:06.240
  • KNOW IT OR NOT, IS TO
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:08.020
  • DEMONSTRATE A NATURE
  • 00:10:08.020 --> 00:10:09.130
  • OF GOD THAT NO ONE CAN
  • 00:10:09.130 --> 00:10:11.110
  • ACTUALLY DEMONSTRATE,
  • 00:10:11.110 --> 00:10:12.240
  • EXCEPT FOR YOU.
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:14.070
  • SO, I WANNA CHALLENGE YOU THAT
  • 00:10:14.070 --> 00:10:16.190
  • WE HAVE TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:18.060
  • INTENTIONAL IN FINDING OUT WHO
  • 00:10:18.060 --> 00:10:19.140
  • WE ARE IN CHRIST -- NOT JUST TO
  • 00:10:19.140 --> 00:10:20.250
  • GET TO HEAVEN SOMEDAY, BUT THAT
  • 00:10:20.250 --> 00:10:22.020
  • WE CAN DISPLAY.
  • 00:10:22.020 --> 00:10:23.290
  • 'CAUSE, AS PAUL SAID, IN VERSE
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:26.110
  • 7, "THAT IN THE AGES TO COME."
  • 00:10:26.110 --> 00:10:28.050
  • AND HE'S ACTUALLY NOT TALKING
  • 00:10:28.050 --> 00:10:30.050
  • ABOUT HUMANITY.
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:31.020
  • HE'S ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT THE
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:32.140
  • ANGELIC REALM, THAT THE ANGELS
  • 00:10:32.140 --> 00:10:33.220
  • WILL BE LIKE, "I DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:35.050
  • KNOW THIS WAS POSSIBLE."
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:36.160
  • GOD ACTUALLY WANTED TO DISPLAY
  • 00:10:36.160 --> 00:10:38.270
  • HIMSELF TO THE-- TO THE, UM--
  • 00:10:38.270 --> 00:10:41.020
  • THE SPIRITUAL REALM, IF YOU
  • 00:10:41.020 --> 00:10:41.270
  • WILL, THE PRINCIPALITIES AND
  • 00:10:41.270 --> 00:10:42.290
  • POWERS.
  • 00:10:42.290 --> 00:10:44.140
  • HE WANTED TO DISPLAY THAT, HIS
  • 00:10:44.140 --> 00:10:45.280
  • GOODNESS TO THAT, BY USING YOU.
  • 00:10:45.280 --> 00:10:47.030
  • I WAS IN-- WE WERE IN L.A. FOR
  • 00:10:47.250 --> 00:10:50.250
  • HEAVEN COME CONFERENCE
  • 00:10:50.250 --> 00:10:52.010
  • RECENTLY.
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:53.180
  • PAUL MENTIONED IT
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:54.170
  • THIS MORNING.
  • 00:10:54.170 --> 00:10:55.170
  • AND, AT THE BEGINNING OF
  • 00:10:56.020 --> 00:10:59.020
  • THE CONFERENCE, A FRIEND
  • 00:10:59.020 --> 00:10:59.200
  • OF MINE, ERWIN MCMANUS--
  • 00:10:59.200 --> 00:11:00.100
  • SOME OF YOU KNOW HIM, SOME OF
  • 00:11:00.100 --> 00:11:01.010
  • YOU DON'T.
  • 00:11:01.010 --> 00:11:01.170
  • AND WE'RE ACTUALLY GONNA HAVE
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:03.080
  • HIM HERE NEXT OCTOBER FOR
  • 00:11:03.080 --> 00:11:04.220
  • OPEN HEAVENS CONFERENCE.
  • 00:11:04.220 --> 00:11:06.030
  • HE'S BEEN EXTREMELY
  • 00:11:06.030 --> 00:11:06.190
  • INFLUENTIAL.
  • 00:11:06.190 --> 00:11:08.240
  • I LOVE FINDING PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:09.160
  • THE LANGUAGE TO WHAT YOU FEEL.
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:10.130
  • IT'S LIKE: "YOU'RE MY NEW BEST
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:11.270
  • FRIEND.
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:13.070
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK.
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:13.270
  • YOU ARE MY NEW BEST FRIEND."
  • 00:11:13.270 --> 00:11:15.140
  • AND THERE'S SOMETHING AMAZING.
  • 00:11:15.140 --> 00:11:16.190
  • WHEN GOD IS ABLE TO GIVE
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:18.020
  • SOMEONE THE ABILITY TO
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:18.270
  • ARTICULATE SOMETHING THAT WE'RE
  • 00:11:18.270 --> 00:11:20.010
  • FEELING EMOTIONALLY,
  • 00:11:20.010 --> 00:11:21.270
  • SPIRITUALLY, ETC., ETC., AND
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:23.230
  • ERWIN HAS BEEN THAT FOR ME FOR
  • 00:11:23.230 --> 00:11:25.010
  • THE LAST THREE OR FOUR YEARS.
  • 00:11:25.010 --> 00:11:27.250
  • HE'S PUTTING LANGUAGE AROUND
  • 00:11:27.250 --> 00:11:28.150
  • STUFF THAT I'M JUST LIKE:
  • 00:11:28.150 --> 00:11:29.060
  • WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:11:29.060 --> 00:11:30.080
  • I CAN'T QUITE EXPLAIN IT.
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:31.090
  • AND SO, UM, LONG STORY SHORT,
  • 00:11:31.090 --> 00:11:33.020
  • HE INVITED ME TO BECOME PART OF
  • 00:11:33.020 --> 00:11:34.200
  • THIS LUNCHEON AT THE BEGINNING
  • 00:11:34.200 --> 00:11:36.000
  • OF HEAVEN COME, BUT, THEY HAD A
  • 00:11:36.000 --> 00:11:37.170
  • CONFERENCE LITERALLY FOUR
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:38.150
  • BLOCKS AWAY AT THEIR THEATRE.
  • 00:11:38.150 --> 00:11:40.260
  • AND SO, I RAN OVER THERE REAL
  • 00:11:40.260 --> 00:11:41.240
  • QUICK AND FOR THIS LUNCHEON.
  • 00:11:41.240 --> 00:11:43.220
  • AND, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE
  • 00:11:43.220 --> 00:11:44.110
  • LUNCHEON, HE GOT UP AND HE
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:45.100
  • SHARED THIS 15 MINUTES ABOUT--
  • 00:11:45.100 --> 00:11:47.150
  • YOU KNOW, JUST-- IT WAS REALLY
  • 00:11:47.150 --> 00:11:48.140
  • BRILLIANT.
  • 00:11:48.140 --> 00:11:49.210
  • BUT HE SAID ONE STATEMENT THAT
  • 00:11:49.210 --> 00:11:51.240
  • I WANNA KINDA CATAPULT FROM
  • 00:11:51.240 --> 00:11:52.200
  • TODAY-- OR TONIGHT.
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:55.010
  • AND HE SAID: THE CHURCH IS TO
  • 00:11:55.010 --> 00:11:56.010
  • THE GENIUS OF GOD.
  • 00:11:58.110 --> 00:12:01.130
  • THE CHURCH IS TO BE THE GENIUS
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:02.040
  • EXPRESSION OF HIM.
  • 00:12:03.020 --> 00:12:06.020
  • NOW, THE WORD "CHURCH," IN ITS
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:06.260
  • CORRECT CONTEXT, IN MY OPINION,
  • 00:12:06.260 --> 00:12:07.180
  • IS THE BELIEVER.
  • 00:12:07.180 --> 00:12:09.100
  • SO, THE BELIEVER, THE
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:10.090
  • CHRISTIAN, THE ONE THAT SAYS
  • 00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:11.070
  • YES TO JESUS, IS TO BE THE
  • 00:12:11.070 --> 00:12:12.160
  • GENIUS EXPRESSION OF HIM.
  • 00:12:12.160 --> 00:12:15.020
  • NOW, WE TURN TO EPHESIANS 3:10.
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:18.210
  • WE'RE GONNA READ ONE MORE VERSE
  • 00:12:18.210 --> 00:12:20.050
  • AND THEN WE'RE GONNA JUMP TO
  • 00:12:20.050 --> 00:12:21.000
  • THE BOOK OF ACTS.
  • 00:12:21.000 --> 00:12:21.240
  • EPHESIANS 3:10: "...TO THE
  • 00:12:22.260 --> 00:12:25.260
  • INTENT THAT NOW THE MANIFOLD
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:27.220
  • WISDOM OF GOD MIGHT BE MADE
  • 00:12:27.220 --> 00:12:30.080
  • KNOWN BY THE CHURCH TO THE
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:31.160
  • PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS IN
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:33.270
  • THE HEAVENLY PLACES."
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.120
  • LET'S READ IT ONE MORE TIME.
  • 00:12:35.120 --> 00:12:36.080
  • "...TO THE INTENT THAT NOW THE
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:38.080
  • MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD MIGHT BE
  • 00:12:38.080 --> 00:12:40.170
  • MADE KNOWN BY THE CHURCH TO THE
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:43.020
  • PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS IN
  • 00:12:43.020 --> 00:12:44.090
  • THE HEAVENLY PLACES."
  • 00:12:44.090 --> 00:12:47.070
  • WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS: IT'S
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:48.080
  • NOT-- GOD'S NOT ACCIDENTAL.
  • 00:12:48.080 --> 00:12:50.090
  • HE'S SAYING TO THE INTENT.
  • 00:12:50.090 --> 00:12:50.280
  • IT HAS BEEN THE DESIRE.
  • 00:12:50.280 --> 00:12:52.110
  • IT HAS BEEN THE INTENT OF GOD
  • 00:12:52.110 --> 00:12:53.090
  • THAT THE CHURCH -- AND, IN THIS
  • 00:12:53.090 --> 00:12:55.290
  • CONTEXT, IT'S REFERRING TO THE
  • 00:12:55.290 --> 00:12:57.110
  • BELIEVER -- THAT THE BELIEVER
  • 00:12:57.110 --> 00:12:59.080
  • WILL BE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE THE
  • 00:12:59.080 --> 00:13:00.190
  • MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:02.270
  • NOW, LET'S TALK ABOUT THOSE TWO
  • 00:13:02.270 --> 00:13:04.170
  • WORDS QUICKLY BEFORE WE GO TO
  • 00:13:04.170 --> 00:13:05.120
  • THE BOOK OF ACTS.
  • 00:13:05.120 --> 00:13:06.200
  • THE WORD "MANIFOLD" MEANS
  • 00:13:06.200 --> 00:13:07.210
  • MULTIDIMENSIONAL, MULTIFACETED.
  • 00:13:08.180 --> 00:13:11.180
  • IT'S ACTUALLY LINKED TO
  • 00:13:11.180 --> 00:13:12.140
  • JOSEPH'S COAT OF MANY COLORS,
  • 00:13:12.140 --> 00:13:13.180
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:13:13.180 --> 00:13:16.000
  • SO, YOU HAVE THIS IDEA OF
  • 00:13:16.000 --> 00:13:17.120
  • MULTIDIMENSIONAL.
  • 00:13:17.120 --> 00:13:17.270
  • ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT IT WOULD
  • 00:13:17.270 --> 00:13:18.270
  • BE IT'S LIKE A HOLOGRAM, IF YOU
  • 00:13:18.270 --> 00:13:19.220
  • WILL.
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:20.090
  • AND EVERY TIME YOU TURN IT, YOU
  • 00:13:20.090 --> 00:13:21.090
  • SEE SOMETHING YOU NEVER SAW
  • 00:13:21.090 --> 00:13:21.290
  • BEFORE.
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:22.190
  • YOU KNOW THAT PASSAGE IN
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:24.090
  • REVELATION THAT TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:13:24.090 --> 00:13:25.250
  • THE ANGELS ARE AROUND THE
  • 00:13:25.250 --> 00:13:27.140
  • THRONE OF GOD AND THEY'RE
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:28.200
  • SINGING, "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS
  • 00:13:28.200 --> 00:13:30.060
  • THE LORD"?
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:31.130
  • I LOVE THAT PASSAGE.
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:32.210
  • AND I REMEMBER, AS A CHILD, I
  • 00:13:32.210 --> 00:13:34.040
  • WAS TORMENTED BY THE IDEA THAT
  • 00:13:34.040 --> 00:13:35.260
  • THAT'S WHAT HEAVEN WAS GONNA BE
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:37.010
  • LIKE.
  • 00:13:37.010 --> 00:13:37.290
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:37.290 --> 00:13:39.170
  • OBVIOUSLY, I HAD VERY LACK OF
  • 00:13:39.170 --> 00:13:40.080
  • UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:13:40.080 --> 00:13:41.110
  • I THOUGHT: MAN, THAT'D BE THE
  • 00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:42.210
  • MOST BORINGEST JOB IN THE WORLD
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:44.170
  • IS FOR ALL ETERNITY IS TO GO,
  • 00:13:44.170 --> 00:13:46.060
  • "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS THE LORD."
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:48.160
  • I THOUGHT, "THAT IS THE LAST
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:49.230
  • JOB IN HEAVEN I WOULD EVER
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:52.060
  • WANT," UNTIL I GREW UP A LITTLE
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:52.280
  • BIT AND BECAME OF I THINK THOSE
  • 00:13:52.280 --> 00:13:53.270
  • ANGELS FOUGHT FOR THAT
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:54.140
  • POSITION.
  • 00:13:54.140 --> 00:13:56.000
  • "THAT IS MY SPOT!
  • 00:13:56.000 --> 00:13:58.040
  • I WANT TO STARE AT GOD ALL DAY
  • 00:13:58.040 --> 00:13:59.160
  • LONG."
  • 00:13:59.160 --> 00:14:00.040
  • I AM CONVINCED THAT "OMG"
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:02.280
  • DIDN'T START IN OUR DAY.
  • 00:14:02.280 --> 00:14:03.280
  • "OMG" STARTED THERE.
  • 00:14:03.280 --> 00:14:04.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:06.140 --> 00:14:09.140
  • THAT'S WHAT "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY"
  • 00:14:09.140 --> 00:14:10.050
  • IT'S LIKE: OH, MY GOD!
  • 00:14:12.090 --> 00:14:12.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:13.200
  • SO, THIS-- IF I CAN EXPLAIN
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:14.160
  • TO YOU -- IT'S LIKE THE ANGELS
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:17.030
  • HAD THEIR PHONES OUT AND
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:17.210
  • THEY'RE LIKE,
  • 00:14:17.210 --> 00:14:18.040
  • "OH, MY GOD" AND
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:18.180
  • THEY TAKE A PICTURE.
  • 00:14:18.180 --> 00:14:19.140
  • AND, AS THEY'RE TEXTING IT,
  • 00:14:19.140 --> 00:14:20.230
  • SENDING IT TO ALL THE OTHER
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:21.260
  • ANGELS, WHEN THEY LOOK BACK UP,
  • 00:14:21.260 --> 00:14:23.100
  • GOD JUST REVEALED ANOTHER
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:25.050
  • ASPECT OF HIS NATURE.

  • -- LET'S TALK ABOUT WISDOM.
  • 00:16:44.060 --> 00:16:44.260
  • THE WORD "WISDOM" IN HERE
  • 00:16:44.260 --> 00:16:47.200
  • ACTUALLY MEANS THE
  • 00:16:47.200 --> 00:16:48.060
  • INTELLIGENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:16:48.060 --> 00:16:48.230
  • SO, YOU HAVE THE
  • 00:16:48.230 --> 00:16:49.100
  • MULTIDIMENSIONAL --

  • JUST THIS GOD THAT'S
  • 00:16:50.100 --> 00:16:52.000
  • OMG, THAT WHOLE ASPECT --
  • 00:16:52.000 --> 00:16:54.020
  • SO, THE IDEA THAT THE CHURCH,
  • 00:16:56.270 --> 00:16:58.120
  • THE BELIEVER, WOULD ACTUALLY
  • 00:16:58.120 --> 00:16:59.130
  • DEMONSTRATE, NOT IN INTELLECT
  • 00:16:59.130 --> 00:17:01.110
  • AND UNDERSTANDING BUT IN
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:03.070
  • ACTUALITY, LIKE IT WILL BE
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:05.180
  • AN ACTUAL EXPRESSION OF THE
  • 00:17:05.180 --> 00:17:08.120
  • NEVER-ENDING NEWNESS OF GOD,
  • 00:17:08.120 --> 00:17:11.120
  • THE INTELLIGENCE OF GOD, THAT
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:13.050
  • THE CHURCH WILL BE RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:17:13.050 --> 00:17:15.050
  • AND WOULD HAVE THE PRIVILEGE
  • 00:17:15.050 --> 00:17:16.180
  • TO EXPRESS THE GENIUS OF GOD
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:19.220
  • TO ALL THE PRINCIPALITIES
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:21.280
  • AND POWERS IN THE HEAVENLY
  • 00:17:21.280 --> 00:17:24.070
  • PLACES -- I BELIEVE THIS BIRTH
  • 00:17:24.070 --> 00:17:26.000
  • IS ACTUALLY DEEPLY CONNECTED TO
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:28.200
  • WHAT TAKES PLACE IN THE BOOK OF
  • 00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:31.010
  • ZECHARIAH.
  • 00:17:31.010 --> 00:17:31.170
  • DON'T TURN THERE -- I'M JUST
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:33.020
  • GONNA TELL YOU THE STORY -- BUT
  • 00:17:33.020 --> 00:17:33.280
  • IF YOU'RE TALKING NOTES, WRITE
  • 00:17:33.280 --> 00:17:35.000
  • DOWN ZECHARIAH CHAPTER 1, VERSE
  • 00:17:35.000 --> 00:17:36.040
  • 18 THROUGH CHAPTER 2, VERSE 2
  • 00:17:36.040 --> 00:17:38.040
  • AND 3.
  • 00:17:38.040 --> 00:17:39.060
  • THAT'LL BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR NOW.
  • 00:17:39.060 --> 00:17:40.220
  • BUT THE END OF THAT CHAPTER,
  • 00:17:40.220 --> 00:17:41.280
  • ZECHARIAH IS HAVING THIS
  • 00:17:41.280 --> 00:17:43.070
  • VISION.
  • 00:17:43.070 --> 00:17:45.010
  • AND IN THIS VISION, HE SEES
  • 00:17:45.010 --> 00:17:45.270
  • FOUR HORNS.
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:47.090
  • AND IN THIS PASSAGE, FOUR HORNS
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:48.010
  • MEANS FOUR STRONGHOLDS, FOUR
  • 00:17:48.010 --> 00:17:49.120
  • DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS THAT WERE
  • 00:17:49.120 --> 00:17:51.110
  • OPPRESSING TWO NATIONS AND ONE
  • 00:17:51.110 --> 00:17:53.090
  • CITY.
  • 00:17:53.090 --> 00:17:54.060
  • AND THE DESCRIPTION OF THE
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:55.270
  • OPPRESSION WAS THAT THE
  • 00:17:55.270 --> 00:17:57.220
  • LIKE, IF YOU GO OUT ON THE
  • 00:18:01.260 --> 00:18:02.160
  • STREET, RIGHT NOW, AND
  • 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:03.120
  • SOMEBODY'S WALKING DOWN THE
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:04.160
  • ROAD, AND THEIR HEAD'S DOWN,
  • 00:18:04.160 --> 00:18:05.290
  • HANDS IN THEIR POCKET, AND
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:06.240
  • THEY'RE SLUMPED OVER, THERE'S A
  • 00:18:06.240 --> 00:18:07.240
  • REALLY GOOD CHANCE THEY'VE
  • 00:18:07.240 --> 00:18:08.220
  • EITHER HAD A BAD SITUATION, A
  • 00:18:08.220 --> 00:18:10.150
  • BAD DAY, OR MAYBE EVEN A BAD
  • 00:18:10.150 --> 00:18:11.260
  • LIFE.
  • 00:18:11.260 --> 00:18:14.180
  • WHEN OPPRESSION'S ON PEOPLE,
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:16.240
  • THEY'RE NEVER LOOKING FORWARD.
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:18.180
  • THEY'RE ALWAYS LOOKING DOWN IN
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:19.090
  • LIFE.
  • 00:18:19.090 --> 00:18:20.060
  • SO, THE PICTURE OF THESE FOUR
  • 00:18:20.060 --> 00:18:20.270
  • DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS HAVE
  • 00:18:20.270 --> 00:18:21.230
  • OPPRESSED THESE NATIONS AND
  • 00:18:21.230 --> 00:18:23.210
  • THIS CITY TO THE POINT THAT
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:25.150
  • THEY WERE NOT LOOKING FORWARD.
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:26.200
  • THEY WERE LOOKING DOWN.
  • 00:18:26.200 --> 00:18:28.050
  • SO, ZECHARIAH SEES THIS SCENE
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:29.190
  • OF OPPRESSION.
  • 00:18:29.260 --> 00:18:32.260
  • AND THEN, HE LOOKS OVER HERE
  • 00:18:32.260 --> 00:18:33.160
  • AND HE SEES FOUR CRAFTSMEN.
  • 00:18:33.160 --> 00:18:34.170
  • AND FOUR CRAFTSMEN COME INTO
  • 00:18:34.170 --> 00:18:36.110
  • THE SCENE AND THE PASTOR SAID
  • 00:18:36.110 --> 00:18:37.220
  • THESE FOUR CRAFTSMEN TERRORIZED
  • 00:18:37.220 --> 00:18:39.240
  • THE DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS, THAT
  • 00:18:39.240 --> 00:18:41.220
  • THE DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS LEFT,
  • 00:18:41.220 --> 00:18:43.220
  • AND THE RESULT OF THAT WAS THE
  • 00:18:43.220 --> 00:18:46.000
  • NATIONS LIFTED UP THEIR HEAD.
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:47.150
  • NOW, THE WORD-- WE'RE
  • 00:18:47.150 --> 00:18:49.260
  • FASCINATED BY THE WORD
  • 00:18:49.260 --> 00:18:52.050
  • "CRAFTSMEN."
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:52.210
  • I DON'T HAVE TIME TO UNPACK IT,
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:53.130
  • BUT THIS IS GIVING ME A
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:54.190
  • FRAMEWORK FOR THE BOOK OF ACTS,
  • 00:18:54.190 --> 00:18:55.250
  • WHERE I'M GONNA GO IN JUST A
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:56.260
  • BUT THE FASCINATING THINGS
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:18:59.270
  • ABOUT CRAFTSMEN -- I BELIEVE IN
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:00.210
  • THAT CONTEXT IT WAS NORMALLY
  • 00:19:00.210 --> 00:19:02.050
  • REFERRING TO SOMEONE THAT WAS
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:03.090
  • GOOD WITH WOOD, WITH METAL,
  • 00:19:03.090 --> 00:19:05.010
  • WITH FABRIC, SOME MATERIAL
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:06.060
  • THING.
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:08.000
  • THEY WERE ABLE TO CREATE
  • 00:19:08.000 --> 00:19:08.180
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:19:08.180 --> 00:19:09.070
  • THE FIRST PERSON IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:10.290
  • CHRONOLOGICALLY, THAT WAS
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:12.080
  • FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD
  • 00:19:12.080 --> 00:19:13.230
  • WAS A CRAFTSMEN BY THE NAME
  • 00:19:13.230 --> 00:19:15.270
  • BEZALEL IN EXODUS CHAPTER 31.
  • 00:19:15.270 --> 00:19:17.120
  • HE'S THE GUY THAT GOD-- MOSES
  • 00:19:17.120 --> 00:19:19.160
  • WAS OVERWHELMED WITH THE IDEA
  • 00:19:19.160 --> 00:19:21.080
  • OF BUILDING THE TABERNACLE.
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:23.130
  • AND HE'S LIKE, "GOD,
  • 00:19:23.130 --> 00:19:24.060
  • I CAN'T BUILD THIS!"
  • 00:19:24.060 --> 00:19:25.250
  • AND HE SAID: "DON'T WORRY.
  • 00:19:25.250 --> 00:19:26.140
  • GO GET ME BEZALEL.
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:27.060
  • BRING HIM TO ME.
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:29.290
  • I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:19:29.290 --> 00:19:30.190
  • SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:31.090
  • UNDERSTANDING IN HIM, AND ALL
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:32.170
  • MANNER OF WORKMANSHIP, AND HE
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:34.060
  • WILL BE ABLE TO BUILD WHAT I'VE
  • 00:19:34.060 --> 00:19:35.150
  • SHOWN YOU."
  • 00:19:35.150 --> 00:19:37.080
  • SO, BEZALEL-- IT'S FUNNY.
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:39.070
  • THE FIRST PERSON IN HUMAN
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:40.260
  • HISTORY TO BE ABLE TO BE FILLED
  • 00:19:40.260 --> 00:19:42.060
  • WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD WASN'T
  • 00:19:42.060 --> 00:19:43.170
  • ABRAHAM, WASN'T ADAM AND EVE,
  • 00:19:43.170 --> 00:19:44.200
  • AND IT WASN'T MOSES.
  • 00:19:44.200 --> 00:19:45.250
  • IT WAS A CRAFTSMAN...
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:46.260
  • ...THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD GAVE
  • 00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:49.210
  • HIM THE ABILITY TO BUILD A
  • 00:19:49.210 --> 00:19:51.250
  • IF THAT'S TRUE, WHICH OBVIOUSLY
  • 00:19:55.290 --> 00:19:57.110
  • IT IS -- AND THAT'S JUST A
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:19:58.260
  • COUPLE PASSAGES -- THEN GOD IS
  • 00:19:58.260 --> 00:20:00.090
  • INTO TAKING YOU FROM ONE PLACE
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:02.030
  • TO ANOTHER PLACE.
  • 00:20:02.030 --> 00:20:04.070
  • HE IS ALL ABOUT TAKING YOU INTO
  • 00:20:04.070 --> 00:20:05.160
  • THE NEW THINGS.
  • 00:20:05.160 --> 00:20:08.030
  • AND ONE OF THE CHALLENGES WE
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:10.110
  • HAVE IN THE CHURCH -- AND THIS
  • 00:20:10.110 --> 00:20:11.100
  • IS NOT A NEGATIVE THING, THIS
  • 00:20:11.100 --> 00:20:12.010
  • IS JUST A REALITY -- IS THAT,
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:13.180
  • OFTENTIMES, WE HAVE A HARD TIME
  • 00:20:13.180 --> 00:20:14.290
  • MOVING FORWARD IN THINGS.
  • 00:20:14.290 --> 00:20:17.250
  • SO, TONIGHT, LET'S TALK ABOUT
  • 00:20:17.250 --> 00:20:18.160
  • THAT.
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:18.250
  • LET'S GO TO BOOK OF ACTS,
  • 00:20:18.250 --> 00:20:19.140
  • CHAPTER 2.
  • 00:20:19.140 --> 00:20:22.030
  • AND, UH, JUST BEAR WITH ME.
  • 00:20:22.030 --> 00:20:22.230
  • WE'RE GONNA HOPSCOTCH A LITTLE
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:24.070
  • BIT AROUND THE BOOK OF ACTS.
  • 00:20:25.130 --> 00:20:28.130
  • JUST A QUICK FRAMEWORK.
  • 00:20:28.130 --> 00:20:29.080
  • ACTS CHAPTER 2.
  • 00:20:29.080 --> 00:20:29.220
  • WE'RE GONNA READ SOMETHING OUT
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:30.240
  • OF ACTS CHAPTER 2, OUT OF ACTS
  • 00:20:30.240 --> 00:20:31.250
  • CHAPTER 10, AND ACTS CHAPTER
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:32.190
  • 15.
  • 00:20:32.190 --> 00:20:34.010
  • TO GIVE YOU A ROUGH TIMELINE OF
  • 00:20:34.010 --> 00:20:36.070
  • THE TIME BETWEEN ACTS CHAPTER 2
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:39.050
  • AND ACTS CHAPTER 10 IS ROUGHLY
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:40.160
  • CLOSE TO 10 YEARS.
  • 00:20:40.160 --> 00:20:42.150
  • FROM ACTS CHAPTER 10 TO ACTS
  • 00:20:43.180 --> 00:20:46.180
  • CHAPTER 15 IS APPROXIMATELY
  • 00:20:46.180 --> 00:20:47.250
  • ANOTHER EIGHT TO TEN YEARS.
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:49.200
  • SO, I KNOW THERE'S DEBATE --
  • 00:20:49.200 --> 00:20:51.010
  • MAYBE SEVEN YEARS, SIX YEARS --
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:52.170
  • AND THAT'S FINE.
  • 00:20:52.170 --> 00:20:53.090
  • BUT JUST-- MY POINT IS A BIT
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:54.190
  • OF TIME PASSED BETWEEN ACTS
  • 00:20:54.190 --> 00:20:56.220
  • CHAPTER 2 TO ACTS CHAPTER 15.
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:59.000
  • SO, FOR JUST TONIGHT, I'M GOING
  • 00:20:59.000 --> 00:21:00.100
  • TO SAY 20 YEARS.
  • 00:21:00.100 --> 00:21:01.160
  • TWENTY YEARS TOOK PLACE BETWEEN
  • 00:21:01.160 --> 00:21:03.000
  • ACTS CHAPTER 2 AND ACTS CHAPTER
  • 00:21:03.000 --> 00:21:04.120
  • 15.
  • 00:21:04.120 --> 00:21:06.040
  • SO LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT TAKES
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:07.040
  • PLACE IN ACTS CHAPTER 2.
  • 00:21:07.040 --> 00:21:08.010
  • I KNOW WE'RE ALL VERY FAMILIAR
  • 00:21:08.010 --> 00:21:09.020
  • WITH THIS PASSAGE, BUT I THINK
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:10.170
  • IT'S IMPORTANT TO GO THROUGH A
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:11.080
  • COUPLE THINGS, HERE.
  • 00:21:11.080 --> 00:21:12.110
  • SO, LET'S START IN VERSE 1 OF
  • 00:21:12.110 --> 00:21:13.020
  • ACTS 2.
  • 00:21:13.020 --> 00:21:13.220
  • "WHEN THE DAY OF PENTECOST HAD
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:15.240
  • FULLY COME, THEY WERE ALL WITH
  • 00:21:15.240 --> 00:21:16.210
  • ONE ACCORD IN ONE PLACE.
  • 00:21:16.210 --> 00:21:18.010
  • AND, SUDDENLY, THERE CAME A
  • 00:21:18.010 --> 00:21:19.080
  • SOUND FROM HEAVEN..."
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:22.270
  • HOW MANY OF YOU LOVE THE
  • 00:21:22.270 --> 00:21:23.150
  • "AND SUDDENLY" MOMENTS?
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:24.030
  • ONLY 20 OF YOU.
  • 00:21:24.030 --> 00:21:26.090
  • OKAY.
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:26.250
  • "...AND, SUDDENLY, THERE CAME A
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:29.080
  • SOUND FROM HEAVEN, AS OF A
  • 00:21:29.080 --> 00:21:30.270
  • RUSHING MIGHTY WIND, AND IT
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:32.150
  • FILLED THE WHOLE HOUSE WHERE
  • 00:21:32.150 --> 00:21:34.010
  • THEY WERE SITTING.
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:36.070
  • THEN THERE APPEARED TO THEM
  • 00:21:36.070 --> 00:21:37.170
  • DIVIDED TONGUES, AS OF FIRE,
  • 00:21:37.170 --> 00:21:39.270
  • AND ONE SAT UPON EACH OF THEM.
  • 00:21:40.220 --> 00:21:43.220
  • AND THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH
  • 00:21:43.220 --> 00:21:44.130
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT AND BEGAN TO
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:45.090
  • SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES, AS
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:46.130
  • THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE.
  • 00:21:46.130 --> 00:21:48.050
  • AND THERE WERE DWELLING IN
  • 00:21:48.050 --> 00:21:50.010
  • JERUSALEM JEWS, DEVOUT MEN,
  • 00:21:50.010 --> 00:21:51.090
  • FROM EVERY NATION UNDER HEAVEN.
  • 00:21:51.090 --> 00:21:52.080
  • AND WHEN THIS SOUND OCCURRED,
  • 00:21:52.080 --> 00:21:54.020
  • THE MULTITUDE CAME TOGETHER,
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:55.290
  • AND WERE CONFUSED, BECAUSE
  • 00:21:55.290 --> 00:21:57.120
  • EVERYONE HEARD THEM SPEAK IN
  • 00:21:57.120 --> 00:21:59.130
  • HIS OWN LANGUAGE."
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:01.040
  • LET'S STOP RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:22:01.040 --> 00:22:01.280
  • I TOOK A TEAM, A MISSION TRIP
  • 00:22:01.280 --> 00:22:03.130
  • TO CHILE, I THINK EIGHT OR NINE
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:05.030
  • YEARS AGO.
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:07.190
  • AND WE ENDED UP INSIDE OF A
  • 00:22:07.190 --> 00:22:09.190
  • CHURCH THAT WE JUST NOTICED THE
  • 00:22:09.190 --> 00:22:11.030
  • CHURCH AND SAID, "LET'S GO IN
  • 00:22:11.030 --> 00:22:12.080
  • AND SAY HI."
  • 00:22:12.080 --> 00:22:12.220
  • AND SO, WE WENT INTO THIS
  • 00:22:12.220 --> 00:22:13.230
  • CHURCH, WE'RE ON A MISSION
  • 00:22:13.230 --> 00:22:14.250
  • TRIP, AND WE WENT IN.
  • 00:22:14.250 --> 00:22:17.050
  • AND WE COME TO FIND OUT THIS
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:18.190
  • CHURCH, IN 1999 -- THEY HAD AN
  • 00:22:18.190 --> 00:22:19.100
  • OUTPOURING ON THIS CHURCH.
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:21.210
  • AND THEY BEGAN TO TELL A STORY.
  • 00:22:21.210 --> 00:22:22.130
  • AND THIS CHURCH WAS ON THE
  • 00:22:23.030 --> 00:22:26.030
  • SECOND LEVEL OF-- IT WAS LIKE A
  • 00:22:26.030 --> 00:22:27.000
  • BUSY, MAIN STREET OF THIS
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:28.080
  • PRETTY LARGE, A QUARTER-
  • 00:22:28.080 --> 00:22:29.110
  • MILLION-PEOPLE CITY IN THE
  • 00:22:29.110 --> 00:22:30.130
  • NATION OF CHILE.
  • 00:22:30.130 --> 00:22:32.060
  • AND THIS CHURCH WAS ON THE
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:33.170
  • SECOND FLOOR AND THE WHOLE
  • 00:22:33.170 --> 00:22:34.270
  • SECOND FLOOR WAS GLASS WINDOWS.
  • 00:22:34.270 --> 00:22:36.120
  • SO, IF YOU'RE WALKING ON THE
  • 00:22:36.120 --> 00:22:38.020
  • STREET, YOU CAN LOOK UP INTO
  • 00:22:38.020 --> 00:22:39.050
  • THE GLASS WINDOWS.
  • 00:22:39.050 --> 00:22:42.040
  • AND THEY WERE TELLING STORIES
  • 00:22:42.040 --> 00:22:43.000
  • THAT MANY TIMES IN 1999 --
  • 00:22:43.000 --> 00:22:45.210
  • I THINK IT WAS A COUPLE YEARS,
  • 00:22:45.210 --> 00:22:46.120
  • THEY HAD THIS MASSIVE
  • 00:22:46.120 --> 00:22:47.010
  • OUTPOURING -- MANY
  • 00:22:47.010 --> 00:22:47.240
  • TIMES, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT
  • 00:22:47.240 --> 00:22:49.030
  • WOULD SHOW UP AND COME RUNNING
  • 00:22:49.030 --> 00:22:50.190
  • UP THE STAIRS BECAUSE PEOPLE
  • 00:22:50.190 --> 00:22:52.180
  • REPORTED SEEING FIRE IN THE
  • 00:22:52.180 --> 00:22:53.290
  • WINDOWS OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:22:53.290 --> 00:22:56.260
  • WELL, IT WASN'T FIRE.
  • 00:22:56.260 --> 00:22:58.230
  • THERE WAS AN OUTPOURING.
  • 00:22:58.230 --> 00:22:59.240
  • THEY LITERALLY HAD A
  • 00:22:59.240 --> 00:23:01.050
  • MANIFESTATION OF FIRE THAT WAS
  • 00:23:01.050 --> 00:23:02.090
  • VISIBLE TO THE PEOPLE WALKING
  • 00:23:02.090 --> 00:23:03.080
  • BY ON THE STREET.
  • 00:23:03.080 --> 00:23:05.040
  • WHAT DOES FIRE ON TOP OF
  • 00:23:05.040 --> 00:23:05.220
  • PEOPLE'S HEAD DO?
  • 00:23:05.220 --> 00:23:06.180
  • IT CREATES CONFUSION.
  • 00:23:06.180 --> 00:23:08.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:08.120 --> 00:23:10.080
  • WE READ THIS, LIKE, "OH, YEAH,
  • 00:23:10.080 --> 00:23:11.160
  • THIS IS AMAZING," BUT, I'M
  • 00:23:11.160 --> 00:23:12.250
  • TELLING YOU, IF YOU'VE NEVER
  • 00:23:12.250 --> 00:23:13.210
  • SEEN IT BEFORE, YOU'RE GONNA BE
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:14.210
  • FREAKED OUT A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:23:14.210 --> 00:23:16.090
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:16.090 --> 00:23:18.220
  • AND WHAT YOU'VE NEVER HEARD
  • 00:23:18.220 --> 00:23:19.120
  • BEFORE, IT'S LIKE: "HOW DO YOU
  • 00:23:19.120 --> 00:23:20.100
  • KNOW MY LANGUAGE?
  • 00:23:20.100 --> 00:23:21.120
  • HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU KNOW MY
  • 00:23:21.120 --> 00:23:22.210
  • LANGUAGE?"
  • 00:23:22.210 --> 00:23:23.250
  • THIS IS BEFORE ROSETTA STONE.
  • 00:23:23.250 --> 00:23:25.070
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:25.070 --> 00:23:27.150
  • THIS IS BEFORE ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:29.230
  • NOW, HOW IN THE WORLD--
  • 00:23:29.230 --> 00:23:30.210
  • SO, WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME
  • 00:23:30.210 --> 00:23:31.180
  • ON THEM, FIRE ERUPTED ABOVE
  • 00:23:31.180 --> 00:23:32.130
  • THEM, THEY'RE SPEAKING IN
  • 00:23:32.130 --> 00:23:33.020
  • TONGUES, IN OTHER LANGUAGES.
  • 00:23:33.020 --> 00:23:34.050
  • AND THEN, WHAT MADE IT EVEN
  • 00:23:34.050 --> 00:23:35.220
  • MORE INTENSE IS THEY WERE
  • 00:23:35.220 --> 00:23:37.160
  • ACTING LIKE THEY WERE DRUNK.
  • 00:23:37.160 --> 00:23:39.020
  • THEY WERE CLEARLY OVERWHELMED
  • 00:23:39.020 --> 00:23:40.130
  • BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
  • 00:23:40.130 --> 00:23:41.230
  • SO, WHAT'S FUNNY ABOUT THIS TO
  • 00:23:41.230 --> 00:23:42.290
  • ME IS THAT BACK IN THE BOOK OF
  • 00:23:42.290 --> 00:23:45.030
  • JOHN, JESUS ACTUALLY BEGINS TO
  • 00:23:45.030 --> 00:23:47.010
  • PREPARE THE CHURCH FOR THE HOLY
  • 00:23:47.010 --> 00:23:47.230
  • JOHN THE BAPTIST SAYS-- IN HIS
  • 00:23:50.080 --> 00:23:52.030
  • TIME, HE SAID: (PARAPHRASED)
  • 00:23:52.030 --> 00:23:52.230
  • "THERE'S ANOTHER ONE COMING
  • 00:23:52.230 --> 00:23:53.130
  • MIGHTIER THAN I THAT WILL
  • 00:23:53.130 --> 00:23:54.100
  • BAPTIZE YOU IN SPIRIT AND
  • 00:23:54.100 --> 00:23:55.150
  • IN...FIRE."
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:57.200
  • SO, JESUS BEGINS TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:23:57.200 --> 00:24:00.100
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IN JOHN 14.
  • 00:24:00.100 --> 00:24:01.290
  • AND JOHN 16, HE BEGINS TO SAY
  • 00:24:01.290 --> 00:24:03.200
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT'S GOING TO
  • 00:24:03.200 --> 00:24:04.260
  • COME.
  • 00:24:04.260 --> 00:24:06.120
  • I NEED TO GO, SO THE HOLY
  • 00:24:06.120 --> 00:24:07.230
  • SPIRIT'S GOING TO COME, HE'S
  • 00:24:07.230 --> 00:24:08.220
  • GOING TO COMFORT YOU, HE'S
  • 00:24:08.220 --> 00:24:10.030
  • GOING TO GUIDE YOU IN ALL
  • 00:24:10.030 --> 00:24:11.140
  • THINGS, AND HE'S GOING TO TEACH
  • 00:24:11.140 --> 00:24:12.240
  • YOU ALL THINGS.
  • 00:24:12.240 --> 00:24:13.160
  • NOW, LET'S JUST TAKE THOSE
  • 00:24:13.160 --> 00:24:14.260
  • THREE IDEAS -- GUIDE YOU IN ALL
  • 00:24:14.260 --> 00:24:15.270
  • THINGS, COMFORT, AND TEACH YOU.
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:18.060
  • I HAVE AN IMAGE OF WHAT THAT
  • 00:24:18.060 --> 00:24:19.190
  • LOOKS LIKE.
  • 00:24:19.190 --> 00:24:21.060
  • I HAVE AN IMAGE OF A GENTLEMAN
  • 00:24:21.060 --> 00:24:22.180
  • THAT JUST KINDA HOLDS YOUR HAND
  • 00:24:22.180 --> 00:24:23.170
  • AND SAYS, "LET'S GO FOR A NICE
  • 00:24:23.170 --> 00:24:24.240
  • WALK."
  • 00:24:24.240 --> 00:24:26.080
  • WHY AM I MENTIONING THAT?
  • 00:24:26.080 --> 00:24:27.290
  • SO, PICTURE THAT.
  • 00:24:27.290 --> 00:24:29.090
  • THAT IS THE IMAGE I'M PROPOSING
  • 00:24:29.090 --> 00:24:30.160
  • THAT THEY HAD.
  • 00:24:30.160 --> 00:24:31.120
  • SO, WHEN ACTS CHAPTER 2 COMES
  • 00:24:31.120 --> 00:24:33.090
  • AROUND, IT DOESN'T QUITE FIT
  • 00:24:33.090 --> 00:24:35.000
  • WHAT THEY THOUGHT IT WAS GOING
  • 00:24:35.000 --> 00:24:35.230
  • TO LOOK LIKE.
  • 00:24:35.230 --> 00:24:37.160
  • THUS IS THE REASON WHY: "WHAT IS
  • 00:24:37.160 --> 00:24:39.080
  • GOING ON HERE?"
  • 00:24:39.080 --> 00:24:42.030
  • THIS IS WHY THEY WERE CONFUSED.
