  • - Brian Houston: Well,
  • 00:00:12.050 --> 00:00:15.050
  • I love the Hillsong Conference.
  • 00:00:15.050 --> 00:00:16.200
  • in Australia, this conference
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:20.040
  • has been all about
  • 00:00:20.040 --> 00:00:21.020
  • blessing people everywhere.
  • 00:00:21.020 --> 00:00:23.020
  • We're amazed at the lean in
  • 00:00:23.020 --> 00:00:24.220
  • we get all around the world from
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:26.120
  • pastors, churches, and believers
  • 00:00:26.120 --> 00:00:28.230
  • who wanna grow together.
  • 00:00:28.230 --> 00:00:30.100
  • The atmosphere
  • 00:00:30.100 --> 00:00:31.130
  • within the conference
  • 00:00:31.130 --> 00:00:32.160
  • is something to behold.
  • 00:00:32.160 --> 00:00:33.250
  • So I want you to come
  • 00:00:33.250 --> 00:00:34.240
  • on this journey and enjoy
  • 00:00:34.240 --> 00:00:35.270
  • the experience for yourself
  • 00:00:35.270 --> 00:00:38.040
  • as we hear an inspiring message
  • 00:00:38.040 --> 00:00:39.270
  • from Hillsong Conference
  • 00:00:39.270 --> 00:00:41.010
  • - Brian: I wonder if anyone
  • 00:00:51.230 --> 00:00:52.220
  • in this room has ever been
  • 00:00:52.220 --> 00:00:55.190
  • in any trouble.
  • 00:00:55.190 --> 00:00:57.230
  • I wonder if anyone in this room
  • 00:00:58.030 --> 00:01:01.050
  • My message is called
  • 00:01:04.270 --> 00:01:06.000
  • "Troubling the Troubler."
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:08.150
  • Are the troubler
  • 00:01:08.150 --> 00:01:10.280
  • or the troublee?
  • 00:01:10.280 --> 00:01:12.250
  • The troubler is the person who,
  • 00:01:13.100 --> 00:01:16.100
  • well, they trouble the troubler.
  • 00:01:16.100 --> 00:01:18.220
  • The troublee,
  • 00:01:18.220 --> 00:01:20.080
  • they're the person who trouble
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:22.230
  • seems to always follow them.
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:25.070
  • When I was younger, I seemed to
  • 00:01:25.070 --> 00:01:27.120
  • always be in trouble.
  • 00:01:27.120 --> 00:01:29.070
  • Not really bad trouble,
  • 00:01:29.070 --> 00:01:30.160
  • like, mischief-type trouble.
  • 00:01:30.160 --> 00:01:33.060
  • When I was 13, my father and
  • 00:01:33.060 --> 00:01:35.140
  • mother, they were church pastors
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:36.290
  • in the Salvation Army, and then,
  • 00:01:36.290 --> 00:01:39.090
  • by then, they were pastors
  • 00:01:39.090 --> 00:01:41.190
  • in an Assemblies of God church
  • 00:01:41.190 --> 00:01:42.270
  • in New Zealand.
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:44.120
  • And my brother and I went to
  • 00:01:44.120 --> 00:01:46.140
  • school right nearby, my brother
  • 00:01:46.140 --> 00:01:48.220
  • 2 years older than me, and so
  • 00:01:48.220 --> 00:01:50.290
  • after school we'd come down
  • 00:01:50.290 --> 00:01:52.160
  • while my parents were still at
  • 00:01:52.160 --> 00:01:53.230
  • the office and we would end up
  • 00:01:53.230 --> 00:01:55.270
  • just muckin' around
  • 00:01:55.270 --> 00:01:57.090
  • in the churchyard.
  • 00:01:57.090 --> 00:01:59.020
  • And there wasn't a whole lot to
  • 00:01:59.020 --> 00:02:00.180
  • do in the churchyard, but
  • 00:02:00.180 --> 00:02:02.000
  • there was a Bible college
  • 00:02:02.000 --> 00:02:03.020
  • there as well.
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:04.040
  • And one of the students
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:05.100
  • had a moped.
  • 00:02:05.100 --> 00:02:07.180
  • It was like a motor scooter
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:09.090
  • with pedals.
  • 00:02:09.090 --> 00:02:10.140
  • And so we would
  • 00:02:10.140 --> 00:02:11.290
  • look at this moped.
  • 00:02:11.290 --> 00:02:13.090
  • Remember, I was 13 and then,
  • 00:02:13.090 --> 00:02:15.010
  • after a while we would
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:15.230
  • sit on it.
  • 00:02:15.230 --> 00:02:16.210
  • And before you knew it,
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:17.170
  • after a few days,
  • 00:02:17.170 --> 00:02:18.220
  • we would start the pedals going
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:20.160
  • and get the engine working,
  • 00:02:20.160 --> 00:02:22.100
  • and then try revving it up.
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:24.030
  • And then all of a sudden we're
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:25.270
  • just riding it a little bit up
  • 00:02:25.270 --> 00:02:27.170
  • and down the churchyard.
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:29.160
  • And a few more days and we're
  • 00:02:29.160 --> 00:02:32.010
  • actually ridin' it just out
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:33.130
  • onto the street a little,
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:34.180
  • just up and down.
  • 00:02:34.180 --> 00:02:35.160
  • And right there, there was
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:37.020
  • a river, and so we would take it
  • 00:02:37.020 --> 00:02:38.180
  • up onto the top of the river's
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:40.110
  • levee bank, stop bank,
  • 00:02:40.110 --> 00:02:42.250
  • and we'd ride it up and down
  • 00:02:42.250 --> 00:02:44.090
  • the riverbank.
  • 00:02:44.090 --> 00:02:45.060
  • And well, it wasn't long before
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:46.220
  • we were ridin' it everywhere.
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:48.180
  • We were ridin' it
  • 00:02:48.180 --> 00:02:49.090
  • all around the streets,
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:50.110
  • havin' an amazing time.
  • 00:02:50.110 --> 00:02:51.230
  • And obviously, I didn't know
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:53.190
  • what to do, because one time
  • 00:02:53.190 --> 00:02:54.270
  • I was riding it and a policeman
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:56.160
  • went by, and I guess I panicked,
  • 00:02:56.160 --> 00:02:58.030
  • and instead of usin' the brakes,
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:02:59.230
  • I tried to stop it with my feet.
  • 00:02:59.230 --> 00:03:02.060
  • And going along at 30, 40 mile
  • 00:03:02.060 --> 00:03:03.170
  • an hour, it's kinda hard to stop
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:04.270
  • a motorbike with your feet.
  • 00:03:04.270 --> 00:03:07.030
  • And so the policeman saw me, and
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:09.030
  • points to the side of the road.
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:10.150
  • And sure enough, he asked me,
  • 00:03:10.150 --> 00:03:12.110
  • "Can I see your license?"
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:14.200
  • I said, "No."
  • 00:03:14.200 --> 00:03:16.210
  • He said,
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:17.130
  • "Do you have a license?"
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:18.260
  • "No."
  • 00:03:18.260 --> 00:03:20.190
  • "How old are you?"
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:22.040
  • "Thirteen."
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:24.130
  • "Does the person
  • 00:03:24.130 --> 00:03:25.100
  • who owns this motorbike
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:26.090
  • know you have it?
  • 00:03:26.090 --> 00:03:27.210
  • "No."
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:30.140
  • I was in big trouble.
  • 00:03:30.140 --> 00:03:32.030
  • But you know, I would say many
  • 00:03:32.200 --> 00:03:35.200
  • of you know what it is
  • 00:03:35.200 --> 00:03:36.230
  • to be in trouble.
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:38.160
  • The Bible talks, though, about
  • 00:03:38.160 --> 00:03:39.290
  • the early church, and it
  • 00:03:39.290 --> 00:03:41.170
  • tells us how it seemed
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:43.170
  • they were the cause of trouble.
  • 00:03:43.170 --> 00:03:46.020
  • It's in Acts chapter 16,
  • 00:03:46.020 --> 00:03:48.060
  • they were in Philippi.
  • 00:03:48.060 --> 00:03:49.190
  • Remember, it's Philippi where
  • 00:03:49.190 --> 00:03:50.260
  • Paul and Silas went to that
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:53.080
  • Philippian prison, where there
  • 00:03:53.080 --> 00:03:55.070
  • was an earthquake that shook
  • 00:03:55.070 --> 00:03:56.220
  • the place apart, and God came.
  • 00:03:56.220 --> 00:03:59.090
  • And all of a sudden,
  • 00:03:59.090 --> 00:04:00.180
  • the jailer got saved.
  • 00:04:00.180 --> 00:04:02.020
  • Amazing things happening.
  • 00:04:02.020 --> 00:04:03.140
  • But if you look at
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:04.080
  • the backstory, this is what
  • 00:04:04.080 --> 00:04:06.000
  • it's verse 16.
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:10.000
  • It says: "Now it happened,
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:11.110
  • as we went to prayer, that
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:13.030
  • a certain slave girl possessed
  • 00:04:13.030 --> 00:04:15.030
  • with a spirit of divination,"
  • 00:04:15.030 --> 00:04:17.030
  • that means she was a psychic
  • 00:04:17.030 --> 00:04:18.280
  • or a fortune teller.
  • 00:04:18.280 --> 00:04:20.220
  • And so, "This girl with
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:21.260
  • a spirit of divination met us,
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:24.060
  • who brought her masters
  • 00:04:24.060 --> 00:04:25.070
  • much profit by fortune-telling."
  • 00:04:25.070 --> 00:04:28.020
  • I guess they were
  • 00:04:28.020 --> 00:04:29.100
  • human traffickers.
  • 00:04:29.100 --> 00:04:30.190
  • Back in these days they were
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:31.270
  • making money out of their slave.
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:34.140
  • Well, it goes on and says,
  • 00:04:34.140 --> 00:04:36.040
  • "This girl followed Paul and us,
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:37.100
  • and cried out, saying,
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:38.170
  • 'These men are the servants of
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:40.010
  • the Most High God, who proclaim
  • 00:04:40.010 --> 00:04:42.030
  • to us the way of salvation.'
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:44.010
  • And this she did for many days.
  • 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:47.040
  • But Paul, greatly annoyed,
  • 00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:49.100
  • turned and said to the spirit,
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:51.050
  • 'I command you in the name of
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:52.220
  • Jesus Christ
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:54.090
  • to come out of her.'
  • 00:04:54.090 --> 00:04:56.100
  • And the spirit came out
  • 00:04:56.100 --> 00:04:57.290
  • that very hour.
  • 00:04:57.290 --> 00:04:59.220
  • But when her masters saw that
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:01.180
  • their hope of profit was gone,
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:03.120
  • they seized Paul and Silas
  • 00:05:03.120 --> 00:05:06.050
  • and dragged them into
  • 00:05:06.050 --> 00:05:08.020
  • the marketplace
  • 00:05:08.020 --> 00:05:08.280
  • to the authorities."
  • 00:05:08.280 --> 00:05:10.100
  • And verse 20, listen to it:
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:11.290
  • "And they brought them to
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:13.110
  • the magistrates, and said,
  • 00:05:13.110 --> 00:05:14.230
  • 'These men, being Jews,
  • 00:05:14.230 --> 00:05:17.110
  • exceedingly trouble our city.'"
  • 00:05:18.280 --> 00:05:21.280
  • Well, I can tell you
  • 00:05:21.280 --> 00:05:23.010
  • they didn't trouble
  • 00:05:23.010 --> 00:05:23.190
  • They weren't troubling the poor
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:27.090
  • or the needy in the city.
  • 00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:29.070
  • They weren't troubling
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:30.160
  • the good people in the city,
  • 00:05:30.160 --> 00:05:32.110
  • or the church in the city.
  • 00:05:32.110 --> 00:05:34.220
  • What they were troubling
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:36.040
  • is the troubler.
  • 00:05:36.040 --> 00:05:37.220
  • They were troubling
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:38.140
  • the powers of darkness.
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:40.120
  • But they weren't just causing
  • 00:05:40.120 --> 00:05:41.190
  • trouble in Philippi
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:43.190
  • in Acts chapter 16.
  • 00:05:43.190 --> 00:05:45.280
  • They were also causing trouble
  • 00:05:45.280 --> 00:05:47.200
  • where in verse 6,
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:52.110
  • Acts chapter 17,
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:54.030
  • in another town, it says:
  • 00:05:54.030 --> 00:05:55.230
  • "'These men who turn the world
  • 00:05:55.230 --> 00:05:58.000
  • upside down
  • 00:05:58.000 --> 00:05:59.290
  • have come here too.'"
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:01.260
  • It says toward the end of
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:03.070
  • the verse, "These men who have
  • 00:06:03.070 --> 00:06:05.080
  • That's kinda what Jesus did.
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:09.220
  • He turned the world
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:11.000
  • and its mind-set and its spirit
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:12.110
  • upside down.
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:13.250
  • He took things,
  • 00:06:13.250 --> 00:06:14.290
  • in his Sermon on the Mount,
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:16.100
  • like, "Eye for an eye
  • 00:06:16.100 --> 00:06:18.120
  • and tooth for a tooth,"
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:19.290
  • and he turned it into,
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.120
  • "Turn the other cheek."
  • 00:06:21.120 --> 00:06:23.100
  • Wouldn't it be amazing today
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:25.020
  • if that words of Jesus
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:27.230
  • was the mandate by which
  • 00:06:27.230 --> 00:06:29.120
  • people lived their lives
  • 00:06:29.120 --> 00:06:30.170
  • around the globe?
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:32.030
  • Well, they were causing
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:32.280
  • more trouble in Corinth
  • 00:06:32.280 --> 00:06:34.070
  • There Paul's in trouble.
  • 00:06:36.100 --> 00:06:37.200
  • It says, "This fellow,"
  • 00:06:37.200 --> 00:06:39.110
  • this fellow, it says,
  • 00:06:39.110 --> 00:06:42.010
  • "persuades men
  • 00:06:42.010 --> 00:06:43.210
  • to worship in a way
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:45.030
  • that was contrary to the Law."
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:47.100
  • In other words, he caused them
  • 00:06:47.100 --> 00:06:48.290
  • to step out of the box, not be
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:51.150
  • confined, but worship in the way
  • 00:06:51.200 --> 00:06:54.200
  • that the Bible encourages us,
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:56.200
  • in spirit and in truth.
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:58.120
  • And in chapter 19
  • 00:06:58.120 --> 00:06:59.240
  • they're still causing trouble.
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:01.240
  • This time it tells us how Paul,
  • 00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:05.000
  • in verse 25, verse 26,
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:08.060
  • it says in verse 26 that:
  • 00:07:08.060 --> 00:07:09.270
  • "Paul persuaded them
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:11.170
  • and turned away many."
  • 00:07:11.170 --> 00:07:14.070
  • You see, they, it seems,
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:15.290
  • Four things the devil hates.
  • 00:07:18.040 --> 00:07:19.200
  • Listen carefully to them.
  • 00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:21.110
  • He hates losing control.
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:23.190
  • And second,
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:24.100
  • he hates losing territory.
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:26.170
  • And third,
  • 00:07:26.170 --> 00:07:27.260
  • he hates losing conformity.
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:30.140
  • Romans 12, verse 2 says: "Don't
  • 00:07:30.140 --> 00:07:32.260
  • be conformed by the spirit of
  • 00:07:32.260 --> 00:07:35.170
  • this world, but be transformed
  • 00:07:35.220 --> 00:07:38.220
  • by changing the way you think."
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:40.280
  • I think the devil, the troubler,
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.200
  • hates the word "transformation."
  • 00:07:42.200 --> 00:07:44.280
  • And even more than hating
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.110
  • the word, he hates to see
  • 00:07:46.110 --> 00:07:48.010
  • the transformation, the change,
  • 00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:50.000
  • that only Jesus can bring.
  • 00:07:50.000 --> 00:07:52.070
  • And so he hates losing control.
  • 00:07:52.180 --> 00:07:55.180
  • He hates losing territory.
  • 00:07:55.180 --> 00:07:57.220
  • He hates it when all of a sudden
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:08:00.100
  • people are breaking free from
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:01.190
  • bondage, and stepping out,
  • 00:08:01.190 --> 00:08:03.160
  • and being all that
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:04.020
  • God had called them to be.
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:05.220
  • So they're no longer conforming
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:07.060
  • to the world and being squeezed
  • 00:08:07.060 --> 00:08:08.190
  • into the world's mold, but
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:10.020
  • being transformed by changing
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:12.060
  • the way they think.
  • 00:08:12.060 --> 00:08:13.270
  • And he hates it
  • 00:08:13.270 --> 00:08:15.170
  • when he loses containment.
  • 00:08:15.170 --> 00:08:18.130
  • In other words,
  • 00:08:18.130 --> 00:08:19.020
  • people are blessed,
  • 00:08:19.020 --> 00:08:20.060
  • and they're flourishing,
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:21.110
  • and they're moving forward.
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:23.010
  • Anyone here with me?
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:25.020
  • Anyone catching with me
  • 00:08:25.020 --> 00:08:26.020
  • what I'm saying?
  • 00:08:26.020 --> 00:08:27.190
  • Well, I wanna live
  • 00:08:27.190 --> 00:08:28.250
  • the kinda life,
  • 00:08:28.250 --> 00:08:30.030
  • I wanna pastor the kinda church
  • 00:08:30.030 --> 00:08:32.090
  • that troubles the troubler.
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:34.170
  • And the four things in our life
  • 00:08:34.170 --> 00:08:36.120
  • the devil hates is when
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:37.280
  • all of a sudden, no longer does
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:40.020
  • exactly what was happening,
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:43.230
  • where it says,
  • 00:08:43.230 --> 00:08:44.130
  • "These men have exceedingly
  • 00:08:44.130 --> 00:08:46.130
  • troubled their city."
  • 00:08:46.130 --> 00:08:48.210
  • That's Acts chapter 16.
  • 00:08:48.210 --> 00:08:50.060
  • But what they were really
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:54.070
  • troubling was the powers of
  • 00:08:54.070 --> 00:08:56.000
  • darkness, and the devil
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:08:57.150
  • was losing control.
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:08:59.090
  • Firstly, these slave masters,
  • 00:08:59.090 --> 00:09:01.120
  • these human traffickers, they
  • 00:09:01.120 --> 00:09:02.290
  • lost control because they were
  • 00:09:02.290 --> 00:09:04.160
  • making a lot of money out of
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:06.020
  • this girl's ability
  • 00:09:06.020 --> 00:09:07.070
  • to tell fortunes.
  • 00:09:07.070 --> 00:09:08.110
  • But there was a spirit
  • 00:09:08.110 --> 00:09:09.140
  • of divination.
  • 00:09:09.140 --> 00:09:10.220
  • And so the spirit was gone, and
  • 00:09:10.220 --> 00:09:12.270
  • so all of a sudden it was
  • 00:09:12.270 --> 00:09:14.180
  • trouble for them.
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:15.170
  • They lost control because no
  • 00:09:15.170 --> 00:09:16.260
  • longer was she telling fortunes.
  • 00:09:16.260 --> 00:09:19.050
  • But the enemy, the devil, he
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:20.220
  • also was losing control because
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:23.060
  • that spirit that was in her
  • 00:09:23.060 --> 00:09:25.070
  • they cast out.
  • 00:09:25.070 --> 00:09:26.190
  • "Paul," the Bible says,
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:27.250
  • "got greatly annoyed."
  • 00:09:27.250 --> 00:09:29.250
  • I like that, but
  • 00:09:29.250 --> 00:09:30.290
  • he wasn't annoyed with the girl.
  • 00:09:30.290 --> 00:09:32.130
  • He was annoyed with the spirit
  • 00:09:32.130 --> 00:09:33.280
  • that was driving the girl.
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:36.000
  • And so she was going around,
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:37.210
  • she kept on following them
  • 00:09:37.210 --> 00:09:38.280
  • everywhere they went.
  • 00:09:38.280 --> 00:09:40.220
  • And I kinda feel that could
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:42.020
  • get annoying.
  • 00:09:42.020 --> 00:09:43.120
  • And everywhere they went
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:44.180
  • she would say two things:
  • 00:09:44.180 --> 00:09:46.080
  • "These men are servants
  • 00:09:46.080 --> 00:09:47.160
  • of the Most High God."
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:48.180
  • And the second thing is:
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:49.270
  • "They come to show
  • 00:09:49.270 --> 00:09:51.060
  • "They come to show
  • 00:09:51.060 --> 00:09:53.230
  • [music]
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:56.090
  • - Brian: Don't you love that
  • 00:09:54.100 --> 00:09:57.100
  • about Jesus?
  • 00:09:57.100 --> 00:09:58.080
  • The victory he won
  • 00:09:58.080 --> 00:09:59.100
  • wasn't about him.
  • 00:09:59.100 --> 00:10:00.150
  • It wasn't about receiving gifts.
  • 00:10:00.150 --> 00:10:02.110
  • It was much more about
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:03.160
  • giving you and I gifts,
  • 00:10:03.160 --> 00:10:04.260
  • giving us possibility,
  • 00:10:04.260 --> 00:10:06.140
  • giving us opportunity.
  • 00:10:06.140 --> 00:10:08.010
  • Oh, how could you not
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:09.020
  • - Brian: And everywhere they
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:19.260
  • went she would say two things:
  • 00:10:19.260 --> 00:10:21.270
  • "These men are servants of
  • 00:10:21.270 --> 00:10:22.240
  • the Most High God."
  • 00:10:22.240 --> 00:10:24.090
  • And the second thing is:
  • 00:10:24.090 --> 00:10:25.220
  • "They come to show
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:26.260
  • Man, I thought
  • 00:10:29.080 --> 00:10:30.040
  • that's what we were all about.
  • 00:10:30.040 --> 00:10:31.270
  • I think that's pretty exciting.
  • 00:10:31.270 --> 00:10:33.180
  • If we're worshiping the Lord
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:35.130
  • our God, the God Most High, and
  • 00:10:35.130 --> 00:10:37.240
  • secondly, showing people the way
  • 00:10:37.240 --> 00:10:39.190
  • to salvation, I would think that
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:41.170
  • was a pretty amazing thing.
  • 00:10:41.170 --> 00:10:43.160
  • But of course, the devil hates
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:45.070
  • it 'cause he loses control.
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:47.160
  • No longer are people living
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:48.270
  • bound, bound by sin, bound,
  • 00:10:48.270 --> 00:10:50.280
  • maybe, by thinking that's
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:53.130
  • just absolutely below what
  • 00:10:53.130 --> 00:10:55.230
  • God has really called you to,
  • 00:10:55.230 --> 00:10:57.240
  • bound in so many different ways.
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:10:59.290
  • the devil lost control.
  • 00:11:02.080 --> 00:11:03.280
  • In Acts chapter 17, verse 6:
  • 00:11:03.280 --> 00:11:06.140
  • "These men who turned the world
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:08.020
  • upside down have come here too."
  • 00:11:08.020 --> 00:11:10.040
  • In other words,
  • 00:11:10.040 --> 00:11:10.250
  • "Now they're on our turf.
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:12.140
  • They're in our territory.
  • 00:11:12.140 --> 00:11:13.290
  • It was okay when they
  • 00:11:13.290 --> 00:11:14.270
  • were turning the rest
  • 00:11:14.270 --> 00:11:16.020
  • If your life's going forward,
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:21.030
  • if your life
  • 00:11:21.030 --> 00:11:21.280
  • is gaining territory,
  • 00:11:21.280 --> 00:11:24.010
  • if the church of Jesus Christ
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:25.170
  • is gaining territory,
  • 00:11:25.170 --> 00:11:27.200
  • guess who's losing territory?
  • 00:11:27.200 --> 00:11:30.060
  • And the devil hates
  • 00:11:30.060 --> 00:11:31.130
  • losing territory.
  • 00:11:31.130 --> 00:11:33.230
  • And that's why the enemy
  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:35.050
  • is so territorial.
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:37.140
  • But I thank God he's all about
  • 00:11:37.140 --> 00:11:39.150
  • new ground, new roads,
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:41.170
  • new rivers taking us forward,
  • 00:11:41.170 --> 00:11:43.010
  • new horizons.
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:44.110
  • He's all about the kingdom of
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:45.140
  • God advancing.
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:47.150
  • talking about the church,
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:51.070
  • and what does it say
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:52.220
  • about the church?
  • 00:11:52.220 --> 00:11:54.060
  • It says: "The gates of hell
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:56.020
  • shall not prevail," cannot
  • 00:11:56.020 --> 00:11:57.250
  • prevail, will not prevail,
  • 00:11:57.250 --> 00:11:59.270
  • "against his church."
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:02.110
  • Oh my, I love the idea of
  • 00:12:02.110 --> 00:12:04.160
  • the gates of hell
  • 00:12:04.160 --> 00:12:05.180
  • not being able to prevail.
  • 00:12:05.180 --> 00:12:07.060
  • You see, I've never been
  • 00:12:07.060 --> 00:12:08.130
  • I may have been attacked
  • 00:12:12.120 --> 00:12:13.230
  • by the odd swinging door,
  • 00:12:13.230 --> 00:12:16.130
  • matter of fact, more than once,
  • 00:12:16.130 --> 00:12:18.180
  • but never by a gate.
  • 00:12:18.180 --> 00:12:20.070
  • You see, gates, they're all
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:22.000
  • about defending, holding out.
  • 00:12:22.000 --> 00:12:23.240
  • And so the picture
  • 00:12:23.240 --> 00:12:24.230
  • is not the gates of hell
  • 00:12:24.230 --> 00:12:26.040
  • coming against us.
  • 00:12:26.040 --> 00:12:27.150
  • It's us advancing
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:28.260
  • so that even the gates of hell
  • 00:12:28.260 --> 00:12:30.070
  • can't keep us out.
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:31.150
  • It's about gaining territory.
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:33.060
  • It's about going forward.
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:34.210
  • I believe that the greatest days
  • 00:12:34.210 --> 00:12:36.160
  • for the church of Jesus Christ
  • 00:12:36.160 --> 00:12:38.030
  • are still ahead of us.
  • 00:12:38.030 --> 00:12:39.110
  • I believe for you and your
  • 00:12:39.110 --> 00:12:40.250
  • ministry and your life and your
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:42.180
  • church for God to give you new
  • 00:12:42.180 --> 00:12:44.140
  • roads, new paths, new horizons,
  • 00:12:44.140 --> 00:12:47.030
  • to cause you to take ground.
  • 00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:48.220
  • But the devil hates
  • 00:12:48.220 --> 00:12:50.050
  • taking ground.
  • 00:12:50.050 --> 00:12:51.220
  • It troubles the troubler.
  • 00:12:51.220 --> 00:12:54.010
  • Oh, let's be those kind of
  • 00:12:54.010 --> 00:12:56.100
  • people who trouble the troubler.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:58.260
  • You see, Jesus, he already
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:13:00.230
  • caused the ultimate trouble
  • 00:13:00.230 --> 00:13:02.100
  • by defeating him on that cross.
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:04.200
  • And before he was resurrected
  • 00:13:04.200 --> 00:13:07.130
  • he wasn't just doing nothing.
  • 00:13:07.130 --> 00:13:08.230
  • During those silent days
  • 00:13:08.230 --> 00:13:11.050
  • he wasn't just doing nothing.
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:13.290
  • No, the Bible says in Ephesians
  • 00:13:13.290 --> 00:13:15.070
  • chapter 4, verse 8 that
  • 00:13:15.070 --> 00:13:17.130
  • he descended into the belly
  • 00:13:19.230 --> 00:13:21.070
  • of the earth."
  • 00:13:21.070 --> 00:13:22.090
  • And it says in this verse,
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:23.190
  • listen to it, Ephesians 4,
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:25.060
  • verse 8: "'When he ascended
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:27.120
  • on high, he led captivity
  • 00:13:27.120 --> 00:13:29.230
  • captive, and,'"
  • 00:13:29.230 --> 00:13:31.000
  • listen carefully,
  • 00:13:31.000 --> 00:13:31.270
  • "gave gifts to men."
  • 00:13:31.270 --> 00:13:33.260
  • I'll tell ya
  • 00:13:33.260 --> 00:13:34.210
  • What's interesting is that in
  • 00:13:36.220 --> 00:13:39.170
  • Bible times and past times, when
  • 00:13:39.200 --> 00:13:42.200
  • a king would win a victory, and
  • 00:13:42.200 --> 00:13:45.130
  • he would conquer another king,
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:47.160
  • an invading king, he would
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:49.060
  • literally take that king,
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:51.110
  • he would take him captive.
  • 00:13:51.110 --> 00:13:53.080
  • He would put him in a cage
  • 00:13:53.080 --> 00:13:55.270
  • and pull him, cart him,
  • 00:13:55.270 --> 00:13:57.190
  • the Scripture says,
  • 00:13:57.190 --> 00:13:58.210
  • "Led captivity captive,"
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:00.120
  • lead him through the town
  • 00:14:00.120 --> 00:14:02.280
  • with everybody coming out
  • 00:14:02.280 --> 00:14:04.260
  • and cheering
  • 00:14:04.260 --> 00:14:05.230
  • the conquering king.
  • 00:14:05.230 --> 00:14:07.040
  • And then they would all
  • 00:14:07.040 --> 00:14:08.140
  • bring gifts and give gifts.
  • 00:14:08.140 --> 00:14:10.120
  • But this picture is Jesus
  • 00:14:10.120 --> 00:14:12.010
  • taking the devil, captivity,
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:13.290
  • captive, and leading him.
  • 00:14:13.290 --> 00:14:16.210
  • But this time,
  • 00:14:16.210 --> 00:14:18.170
  • he gives us gifts.
  • 00:14:18.170 --> 00:14:20.060
  • If you look at the verse
  • 00:14:22.280 --> 00:14:23.200
  • one more time, it says,
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:25.100
  • "He led captivity captive
  • 00:14:25.100 --> 00:14:27.060
  • Don't you love that about Jesus?
  • 00:14:30.040 --> 00:14:31.170
  • The victory he won wasn't about
  • 00:14:31.170 --> 00:14:32.160
  • him.
  • 00:14:32.160 --> 00:14:33.240
  • It wasn't about receiving gifts.
  • 00:14:33.240 --> 00:14:35.270
  • It was much more about
  • 00:14:35.270 --> 00:14:36.290
  • giving you and I gifts,
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:38.180
  • giving us possibility,
  • 00:14:38.180 --> 00:14:39.260
  • giving us opportunity.
  • 00:14:39.260 --> 00:14:41.170
  • Oh, how could you not
  • 00:14:41.170 --> 00:14:42.270
  • get excited about that?
  • 00:14:42.270 --> 00:14:44.080
  • What do you think about Jesus
  • 00:14:44.080 --> 00:14:46.060
  • [audience cheering]
  • 00:14:48.200 --> 00:14:50.070
  • [laughing]
  • 00:14:50.100 --> 00:14:52.090
  • Ah, why don't we take time,
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:53.240
  • stand on our feet,
  • 00:14:53.240 --> 00:14:55.000
  • give God some praise right now?
  • 00:14:55.000 --> 00:14:56.200
  • Come on, why don't we
  • 00:14:56.200 --> 00:14:57.260
  • take time right now?
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:14:59.160
  • Trouble the troubler,
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:00.270
  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:08.170
  • Well, I mentioned in
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:11.060
  • Acts chapter 17--
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:12.090
  • you guys can be seated--how
  • 00:15:12.090 --> 00:15:14.200
  • the devil hates losing control.
  • 00:15:15.050 --> 00:15:18.050
  • You know, the amazing thing
  • 00:15:18.050 --> 00:15:19.140
  • is the enemy tries to bind
  • 00:15:19.140 --> 00:15:20.240
  • and hold people.
  • 00:15:20.240 --> 00:15:21.180
  • Jesus, he's not a controller.
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:23.240
  • He's all about
  • 00:15:23.240 --> 00:15:24.200
  • setting people free.
  • 00:15:24.200 --> 00:15:26.110
  • And I think
  • 00:15:26.110 --> 00:15:27.030
  • it's a powerful difference.
  • 00:15:27.030 --> 00:15:28.250
  • We sing that song, "From
  • 00:15:28.250 --> 00:15:30.230
  • the inside out, my heart and
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:32.050
  • my soul, I give you control."
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:34.250
  • With Jesus, we give him control
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:37.260
  • in our lives.
  • 00:15:37.260 --> 00:15:39.050
  • We believe for the Holy Spirit
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:40.230
  • to be our umpire.
  • 00:15:40.230 --> 00:15:42.140
  • But of course, the enemy,
  • 00:15:42.140 --> 00:15:43.210
  • he tries to bind us
  • 00:15:43.210 --> 00:15:44.200
  • and hold us with control.
  • 00:15:44.200 --> 00:15:46.250
  • Devil hates losing territory.
  • 00:15:47.080 --> 00:15:50.080
  • He hates it when the kingdom
  • 00:15:50.080 --> 00:15:52.080
  • of God is advancing.
  • 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:54.060
  • He hates it when your life
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:55.170
  • is advancing.
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:56.280
  • If he can keep you in debt,
  • 00:15:56.280 --> 00:15:58.090
  • if he can keep you held,
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:16:00.130
  • one way or another,
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:01.280
  • the devil would love to do that.
  • 00:16:01.280 --> 00:16:03.190
  • Jesus, he's all about
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:04.250
  • setting us free.
  • 00:16:04.250 --> 00:16:05.270
  • He's all about giving us ground.
  • 00:16:05.270 --> 00:16:07.200
  • But I know that when our lives
  • 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:10.170
  • are advancing, if the church
  • 00:16:10.170 --> 00:16:11.270
  • is advancing, oftentimes
  • 00:16:11.270 --> 00:16:14.250
  • it causes all sorts of strife.
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:16.170
  • You should never be surprised
  • 00:16:16.170 --> 00:16:18.110
  • if the enemy is attacking you
  • 00:16:18.110 --> 00:16:20.260
  • when you're making good ground
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:22.270
  • because he hates
  • 00:16:22.270 --> 00:16:23.240
  • losing territory.
  • 00:16:23.240 --> 00:16:26.030
  • And that's what happened here
  • 00:16:26.030 --> 00:16:26.290
  • in Acts chapter 17.
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.170
  • In Acts chapter 17, "They were
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:30.090
  • turning the world upside down,
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:31.270
  • now they're coming here too."
  • 00:16:31.270 --> 00:16:33.020
  • They get all territorial.
  • 00:16:33.020 --> 00:16:35.140
  • And so why don't we just decide
  • 00:16:36.010 --> 00:16:39.010
  • we're going forward?
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:41.010
  • We're stepping up.
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:43.000
  • We're not stopping here.
  • 00:16:43.000 --> 00:16:44.270
  • God's got so much more
  • 00:16:44.270 --> 00:16:46.040
  • for you yet.
  • 00:16:46.040 --> 00:16:47.170
  • Why don't you decide
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:48.190
  • you're gonna advance?
  • 00:16:48.190 --> 00:16:50.210
  • 2002, our church in Australia
  • 00:16:50.210 --> 00:16:53.180
  • we built what right now
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:55.120
  • is our main central campus.
  • 00:16:55.120 --> 00:16:57.130
  • We call it the Hills Campus.
  • 00:16:57.130 --> 00:16:59.090
  • And that's, of course, where
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:00.100
  • Bobbie and I, 33 years ago,
  • 00:17:00.100 --> 00:17:02.250
  • went out and started our church.
  • 00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:05.080
  • And when that building
  • 00:17:05.080 --> 00:17:07.240
  • was built, it was interesting
  • 00:17:07.240 --> 00:17:09.030
  • because Hillsong Music
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:11.170
  • was pretty well known.
  • 00:17:11.170 --> 00:17:13.060
  • Nothing like it is today, but
  • 00:17:13.060 --> 00:17:15.100
  • really, my next door neighbors
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:16.190
  • wouldn't have known
  • 00:17:16.190 --> 00:17:17.150
  • what Hillsong Church was.
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:19.120
  • And suddenly, we put that stake
  • 00:17:19.120 --> 00:17:21.040
  • in the ground, and we built
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:22.260
  • a building that's bigger than
  • 00:17:22.260 --> 00:17:24.190
  • any other church building
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:25.270
  • in Australia.
  • 00:17:25.270 --> 00:17:27.240
  • There's something about
  • 00:17:27.240 --> 00:17:28.280
  • buildings and a stake
  • 00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:30.160
  • in the ground the devil hates.
  • 00:17:30.160 --> 00:17:32.020
  • I'm believing in New York City
  • 00:17:32.020 --> 00:17:33.260
  • that God's gonna give us some
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:35.090
  • miracles, that we're gonna see
  • 00:17:35.090 --> 00:17:37.140
  • God release buildings.
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:39.090
  • And the enemy hates it.
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:41.190
  • Well, here's the thing
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:42.240
  • in Australia.
  • 00:17:42.240 --> 00:17:43.290
  • It was amazing, once we put that
  • 00:17:43.290 --> 00:17:46.220
  • stake in the ground, to watch
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:49.040
  • how suddenly our church came
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:50.280
  • from under the horizon, under
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:52.220
  • the surface, until today
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:54.190
  • most Australians have heard
  • 00:17:54.190 --> 00:17:56.060
  • of Hillsong Church
  • 00:17:56.060 --> 00:17:57.050
  • one way or another.
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:58.200
  • And it's amazing how the enemy
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:18:00.230
  • tried to attack one thing
  • 00:18:00.230 --> 00:18:02.260
  • after the other because of
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:04.140
  • that stake in the ground.
  • 00:18:04.140 --> 00:18:05.270
  • Don't be surprised if the enemy
  • 00:18:05.270 --> 00:18:07.090
  • gets threatened when your life
  • 00:18:07.090 --> 00:18:08.190
  • is going forward, when
  • 00:18:08.190 --> 00:18:09.280
  • your church is going forward.
  • 00:18:09.280 --> 00:18:12.040
  • And let's believe that we
  • 00:18:12.040 --> 00:18:13.210
  • will see stakes in the ground.
  • 00:18:13.210 --> 00:18:15.200
  • In other words,
  • 00:18:15.200 --> 00:18:16.130
  • we'll see buildings.
  • 00:18:16.130 --> 00:18:18.010
  • We'll see possibilities.
  • 00:18:18.010 --> 00:18:18.220
  • We'll see opportunity.
  • 00:18:18.220 --> 00:18:19.260
  • We'll see the advancement of
  • 00:18:19.260 --> 00:18:21.040
  • the kingdom of God because
  • 00:18:21.040 --> 00:18:23.050
  • Jesus, he has already won us
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:26.080
  • [music]
  • 00:18:28.160 --> 00:18:30.270
  • - Brian: Anyone here this feels
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:32.160
  • a little bit like your life?

  • You just seem to overcome
  • 00:18:34.040 --> 00:18:35.060
  • one battle, and there
  • 00:18:35.060 --> 00:18:36.200
  • seems to be another one.
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:38.000
  • I'll tell ya why.
  • 00:18:38.000 --> 00:18:38.220

  • is going forward,
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:40.280
  • and the devil hates it.
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:42.050
  • Because you're serving Jesus,
  • 00:18:42.050 --> 00:18:43.130
  • and the devil hates it.
  • 00:18:43.130 --> 00:18:45.000
  • Because your life has got
  • 00:18:45.000 --> 00:18:45.280
  • a sense of purpose
  • 00:18:45.280 --> 00:18:47.140
  • and cause and destiny,
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:48.290
  • - Brian: And here we are as
  • 00:18:59.030 --> 00:19:01.040
  • a church, I'm now talking about
  • 00:19:01.040 --> 00:19:02.120
  • our church, but I'm really
  • 00:19:02.120 --> 00:19:03.210
  • talking to you about your life
  • 00:19:03.210 --> 00:19:05.150
  • and your ministry and whatever
  • 00:19:05.150 --> 00:19:07.140
  • it is, your gift and your
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:08.220
  • talent and everything
  • 00:19:08.220 --> 00:19:10.020
  • God's equipped you with
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:11.120
  • I love taking new ground,
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:15.180
  • but the devil hates it.
  • 00:19:15.180 --> 00:19:17.030
  • And many times he'll try to
  • 00:19:17.030 --> 00:19:18.250
  • cause up all sorts of strife.
  • 00:19:18.250 --> 00:19:21.010
  • And usually, he doesn't just
  • 00:19:21.010 --> 00:19:22.040
  • attack you one way.
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:23.110
  • He attacks you many ways.
  • 00:19:23.110 --> 00:19:25.180
  • Listen to the promise of Joshua.
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:27.290
  • You know Joshua chapter 1.
  • 00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:29.190
  • Perhaps you don't,
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:30.170
  • but let me tell you.
  • 00:19:30.170 --> 00:19:31.270
  • In Joshua chapter 1
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:32.270
  • He says, "Every place
  • 00:19:34.280 --> 00:19:37.220
  • you put the sole of your feet,
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:39.140
  • I'm gonna give it to you."
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:41.060
  • He said,
  • 00:19:41.060 --> 00:19:41.240
  • "I'm gonna give you land.
  • 00:19:41.240 --> 00:19:42.290
  • I'm gonna give you land," he was
  • 00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:44.140
  • saying, "from the mountains,
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:45.250
  • to the ocean,
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:46.280
  • He said, "Every place
  • 00:19:48.290 --> 00:19:49.270
  • you put the sole of your feet."
  • 00:19:49.270 --> 00:19:51.190
  • Such an amazing,
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:52.280
  • amazing promise.
  • 00:19:52.280 --> 00:19:54.190
  • Imagine if God promised you,
  • 00:19:54.190 --> 00:19:56.000
  • "Everywhere, everywhere
  • 00:19:56.000 --> 00:19:58.020
  • you put the sole of your feet,
  • 00:19:58.020 --> 00:19:59.170
  • I'm gonna give it to you."
  • 00:19:59.170 --> 00:20:01.020
  • verse 6, it says:
  • 00:20:03.190 --> 00:20:05.060
  • "Be strong and of good courage."
  • 00:20:05.060 --> 00:20:07.200
  • Why would they need to be strong
  • 00:20:07.200 --> 00:20:08.290
  • if everywhere they're putting
  • 00:20:08.290 --> 00:20:10.080
  • the sole of their feet,
  • 00:20:10.080 --> 00:20:11.260
  • God is gonna give it to them?
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:14.040
  • And then in verse 7
  • 00:20:14.040 --> 00:20:15.150
  • he says it again.
  • 00:20:15.150 --> 00:20:16.260
  • He says:
  • 00:20:16.260 --> 00:20:17.190
  • "Be strong and very courageous."
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:21.020
  • And then in verse 9
  • 00:20:21.020 --> 00:20:22.110
  • the Lord says it again:
  • 00:20:22.110 --> 00:20:25.000
  • "Be strong and of good courage."
  • 00:20:25.180 --> 00:20:28.180
  • the sole of your feet, the Lord
  • 00:20:31.130 --> 00:20:33.260
  • said he would give it to him.
  • 00:20:33.260 --> 00:20:35.160
  • But what he never mentioned is
  • 00:20:35.160 --> 00:20:37.140
  • some of the challenges, some of
  • 00:20:37.140 --> 00:20:39.040
  • the battles, some of the kings,
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:41.230
  • literally, he would have
  • 00:20:41.230 --> 00:20:42.230
  • to defeat for him to see
  • 00:20:42.230 --> 00:20:45.000
  • God give him everywhere
  • 00:20:45.000 --> 00:20:47.040
  • he put the sole of your feet.
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:49.100
  • You ever noticed, when
  • 00:20:49.100 --> 00:20:50.250
  • the promise comes in our life,
  • 00:20:50.250 --> 00:20:52.050
  • even though
  • 00:20:52.050 --> 00:20:53.250
  • we're so excited about
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:54.200
  • the Word from God, the thing
  • 00:20:54.200 --> 00:20:55.280
  • he's put in our spirit?
  • 00:20:55.280 --> 00:20:57.090
  • We got this sense
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:20:58.080
  • God's gonna give us territory.
  • 00:20:58.080 --> 00:20:59.190
  • He's gonna give us new ground.
  • 00:20:59.190 --> 00:21:02.030
  • You ever noticed when you get
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.000
  • the promise, usually, when
  • 00:21:03.000 --> 00:21:04.100
  • you get the prophesy, no one
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:06.100
  • mentions some of the battles
  • 00:21:06.100 --> 00:21:07.190
  • and challenges that stand
  • 00:21:07.190 --> 00:21:09.140
  • in the way of everywhere
  • 00:21:09.140 --> 00:21:12.050
  • you put the sole of your feet?
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:13.280
  • Well, listen, that's all
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:15.130
  • in Joshua chapter 1.
  • 00:21:15.130 --> 00:21:16.250
  • in verse 7.
  • 00:21:19.210 --> 00:21:21.040
  • It says: "These are the kings of
  • 00:21:21.040 --> 00:21:23.010
  • the country which Joshua and
  • 00:21:23.010 --> 00:21:24.290
  • the children of Israel conquered
  • 00:21:24.290 --> 00:21:27.020
  • on this side of the Jordan,
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:28.260
  • on the west," and it tells us
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:30.140
  • exactly the land he was taking.
  • 00:21:30.140 --> 00:21:33.050
  • And then it starts to tell you
  • 00:21:33.050 --> 00:21:34.070
  • just a couple of battles, just
  • 00:21:34.070 --> 00:21:36.010
  • one or two battles, that stood
  • 00:21:36.010 --> 00:21:38.090
  • between Joshua and everywhere
  • 00:21:38.090 --> 00:21:40.260
  • he put the sole of his feet,
  • 00:21:40.260 --> 00:21:42.200
  • God giving it to him.
  • 00:21:42.200 --> 00:21:44.170
  • I'll just read
  • 00:21:44.170 --> 00:21:45.130
  • these couple of battles.
  • 00:21:45.130 --> 00:21:47.100
  • Listen to it.
  • 00:21:47.100 --> 00:21:48.180
  • There was "The king of Jericho,"
  • 00:21:48.180 --> 00:21:50.060
  • he had to defeat, "one;"
  • 00:21:50.060 --> 00:21:52.020
  • then there was, "the king of Ai,
  • 00:21:52.020 --> 00:21:54.030
  • which is beside Bethel, one;"
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:56.130
  • and then he had another battle,
  • 00:21:56.130 --> 00:21:57.250
  • "the king of Jerusalem, one;
  • 00:21:57.250 --> 00:22:00.100
  • the king of Hebron, one;
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:02.060
  • the king of Jarmuth, one;"
  • 00:22:02.060 --> 00:22:04.140
  • everywhere you put
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:05.260
  • the sole of your feet.
  • 00:22:05.260 --> 00:22:07.150
  • All of a sudden, we're finding
  • 00:22:07.150 --> 00:22:08.180
  • all these kings
  • 00:22:08.180 --> 00:22:09.260
  • I wonder in your life what king,
  • 00:22:11.270 --> 00:22:14.160
  • what spirit, what is trying to
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:16.150
  • oppose the purpose
  • 00:22:16.150 --> 00:22:17.220
  • of God in your life.
  • 00:22:17.220 --> 00:22:19.160
  • I wonder if you realize that,
  • 00:22:19.160 --> 00:22:20.260
  • "Greater is he that's in you
  • 00:22:20.260 --> 00:22:22.060
  • than he that is working
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:23.180
  • against you."
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:24.210
  • I wonder if you realize that,
  • 00:22:24.210 --> 00:22:26.100
  • "Jesus has taken captivity
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:28.010
  • to men."
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:31.040
  • Well, listen, I better
  • 00:22:31.040 --> 00:22:32.020
  • keep going because it seems
  • 00:22:32.020 --> 00:22:33.230
  • there were a few more battles.
  • 00:22:33.230 --> 00:22:35.080
  • We got up to, "Jarmuth, one;"
  • 00:22:35.080 --> 00:22:37.090
  • in verse 11,
  • 00:22:37.090 --> 00:22:38.050
  • the king of Lachish, one;
  • 00:22:38.050 --> 00:22:40.150
  • Eglon, one; Gezer, one;
  • 00:22:40.170 --> 00:22:43.170
  • Debir, one; Geder, one;
  • 00:22:43.170 --> 00:22:46.120
  • Hormah, one;
  • 00:22:46.120 --> 00:22:48.090
  • the king of Arad, one;
  • 00:22:48.090 --> 00:22:50.040
  • Libnah, one; Adullam, one;
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:53.050
  • Makkedah, one; Bethel, one;
  • 00:22:53.090 --> 00:22:56.090
  • Tappuah, one;
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:22:57.280
  • the king of Hepher, one;"
  • 00:22:57.280 --> 00:22:59.190
  • that was a very large king...
  • 00:23:00.280 --> 00:23:03.280
  • "Aphek, one;
  • 00:23:03.280 --> 00:23:05.070
  • Lasharon, one; Madon, one;
  • 00:23:05.070 --> 00:23:08.010
  • Hazor, one; Shimron Meron, one;
  • 00:23:08.010 --> 00:23:10.210
  • Achshaph, one; Taanach, one;
  • 00:23:10.210 --> 00:23:13.210
  • Megiddo, one."
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:15.010
  • "Everywhere you
  • 00:23:15.010 --> 00:23:15.260
  • I'm gonna give it to you."
  • 00:23:17.270 --> 00:23:19.210
  • Anyone here this feels
  • 00:23:19.210 --> 00:23:20.220
  • a little bit like your life?
  • 00:23:20.220 --> 00:23:22.040
  • You just seem to overcome
  • 00:23:22.040 --> 00:23:23.100
  • one battle, and there seems
  • 00:23:23.100 --> 00:23:24.250
  • to be another one.
  • 00:23:24.250 --> 00:23:25.260
  • I'll tell ya why.
  • 00:23:25.260 --> 00:23:26.240
  • Because your life is going
  • 00:23:26.240 --> 00:23:28.000
  • forward, and the devil hates it.
  • 00:23:28.000 --> 00:23:29.260
  • Because you're serving Jesus,
  • 00:23:29.260 --> 00:23:31.130
  • and the devil hates it.
  • 00:23:31.130 --> 00:23:32.290
  • Because your life has got
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:34.040
  • a sense of purpose
  • 00:23:34.040 --> 00:23:35.010
  • and the devil hates it.
  • 00:23:37.020 --> 00:23:38.170
  • I better finish reading
  • 00:23:38.170 --> 00:23:39.290
  • these kings, verse 22:
  • 00:23:39.290 --> 00:23:42.260
  • "King of Kedesh, one;
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:44.050
  • Jokneam in Carmel, one;
  • 00:23:44.050 --> 00:23:46.020
  • the king of Dor
  • 00:23:46.020 --> 00:23:47.230
  • in the heights of Dor, one;
  • 00:23:47.230 --> 00:23:49.040
  • king of the people
  • 00:23:49.040 --> 00:23:49.280
  • of Gilgal, one;
  • 00:23:49.280 --> 00:23:51.080
  • the king of Tirzah, one--
  • 00:23:51.080 --> 00:23:53.010
  • all the kings, thirty-one."
  • 00:23:53.010 --> 00:23:55.220
  • "Everywhere you put
  • 00:23:55.220 --> 00:23:57.170
  • the sole of your feet,
  • 00:23:57.170 --> 00:23:58.220
  • You can look at someone
  • 00:24:00.250 --> 00:24:02.050
  • who God seems to be blessing.
  • 00:24:02.050 --> 00:24:03.280
  • You can be looking at someone
  • 00:24:03.280 --> 00:24:05.180
  • who's further down the road
  • 00:24:05.180 --> 00:24:06.180
  • than you.
  • 00:24:06.180 --> 00:24:07.190
  • In other words,
  • 00:24:07.190 --> 00:24:08.050
  • they've taken ground.
  • 00:24:08.050 --> 00:24:09.090
  • They've taken territory.
  • 00:24:09.090 --> 00:24:10.190
  • And many times,
  • 00:24:10.190 --> 00:24:11.290
  • you want what they have.
  • 00:24:11.290 --> 00:24:14.060
  • I wonder if you're prepared to
  • 00:24:14.060 --> 00:24:15.210
  • pay the price and pay the cost.
  • 00:24:15.210 --> 00:24:18.190
  • When it comes to some of
  • 00:24:18.190 --> 00:24:20.010
  • the battles, some of them
  • 00:24:20.010 --> 00:24:21.100
  • are silent battles.
  • 00:24:21.100 --> 00:24:22.150
  • Some of them become
  • 00:24:22.150 --> 00:24:23.050
  • public battles.
  • 00:24:23.050 --> 00:24:24.160
  • I wonder if you're prepared
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:25.180
  • to count the cost.
  • 00:24:25.180 --> 00:24:27.030
  • I believe God wants to take
  • 00:24:27.030 --> 00:24:28.100
  • his church forward.
  • 00:24:28.100 --> 00:24:29.100
  • He wants us to be advancing.
  • 00:24:29.100 --> 00:24:30.180
  • He wants to give us territory.
  • 00:24:30.180 --> 00:24:32.100
  • I believe he wants to put
  • 00:24:32.100 --> 00:24:33.250
  • the place he's called you, when
  • 00:24:33.250 --> 00:24:35.150
  • you put the sole of your feet,
  • 00:24:35.150 --> 00:24:36.240
  • he wants to give it to you.
  • 00:24:36.240 --> 00:24:37.270
  • But never be surprised
  • 00:24:37.270 --> 00:24:39.160
  • if there's some opposition,
  • 00:24:39.160 --> 00:24:40.190
  • because your life
  • 00:24:40.190 --> 00:24:41.200
  • is troubling the troubler.
  • 00:24:41.200 --> 00:24:43.110
  • And that's the way I wanna
  • 00:24:43.110 --> 00:24:44.150
  • live my life.
  • 00:24:44.150 --> 00:24:45.140
  • I wanna live my life paying
  • 00:24:45.140 --> 00:24:46.280
  • the price, counting the cost,
  • 00:24:46.280 --> 00:24:48.170
  • understand God is on my side.
  • 00:24:48.170 --> 00:24:50.250
  • If God be for me, the devil's
  • 00:24:50.250 --> 00:24:52.090
  • having one hell of a time.
  • 00:24:53.080 --> 00:24:56.080
  • "Did he really say that?"
  • 00:24:56.080 --> 00:24:58.100
  • "He really said it."
  • 00:24:58.100 --> 00:24:59.250
  • The devil
  • 00:24:59.250 --> 00:25:00.190
  • hates losing conformity.
  • 00:25:00.190 --> 00:25:03.010
  • Remember in chapter 18, verse 6
  • 00:25:03.010 --> 00:25:05.150
  • of Acts, Paul, this time he's
  • 00:25:05.150 --> 00:25:08.050
  • in Corinth, and they were upset
  • 00:25:08.050 --> 00:25:10.100
  • because he's teaching people
  • 00:25:10.100 --> 00:25:11.170
  • to worship in a way
  • 00:25:11.170 --> 00:25:13.010
  • that was contrary to the Law.
  • 00:25:13.010 --> 00:25:15.010
  • You know, the enemy loves
  • 00:25:15.010 --> 00:25:16.090
  • to keep mediocrity, status quo.
  • 00:25:16.130 --> 00:25:19.130
  • Don't stand out.
  • 00:25:19.130 --> 00:25:20.260
  • Don't be different.
  • 00:25:20.260 --> 00:25:22.140
  • Don't aspire to anything else.
  • 00:25:22.140 --> 00:25:25.000
  • It's amazing how sometimes
  • 00:25:25.000 --> 00:25:26.200
  • politically, or intellectually,
  • 00:25:26.200 --> 00:25:29.160
  • people see aspiration
  • 00:25:29.160 --> 00:25:31.290
  • as something that's wrong.
  • 00:25:31.290 --> 00:25:34.080
  • I believe God wants you
  • 00:25:34.080 --> 00:25:35.270
  • to aspire for great things.
  • 00:25:35.270 --> 00:25:37.260
  • I want to encourage you,
  • 00:25:37.260 --> 00:25:38.290
  • if you're a church leader,
  • 00:25:38.290 --> 00:25:40.070
  • if you're a pastor,
  • 00:25:40.070 --> 00:25:41.110
  • aspire for great things.
  • 00:25:41.110 --> 00:25:43.200
  • But the enemy will always try
  • 00:25:43.200 --> 00:25:45.180
  • to keep us conforming, fearing
  • 00:25:45.180 --> 00:25:47.030
  • people, fearing what the other
  • 00:25:47.030 --> 00:25:48.210
  • person thinks, maybe conforming
  • 00:25:48.210 --> 00:25:50.220
  • to denominations, or conforming
  • 00:25:50.220 --> 00:25:52.170
  • to the status quo, conforming
  • 00:25:52.170 --> 00:25:54.260
  • to the spirit of the world.
  • 00:25:54.260 --> 00:25:56.120
  • Do you know, when the Scripture
  • 00:25:56.120 --> 00:25:57.260
  • says, "They turned the world
  • 00:25:57.260 --> 00:25:59.000
  • upside down," it's not people.
  • 00:25:59.000 --> 00:26:01.100
  • In other words,
  • 00:26:01.100 --> 00:26:02.050
  • the enemy is never people.
  • 00:26:02.050 --> 00:26:04.160
  • It's "cosmos" is the word for
  • 00:26:04.160 --> 00:26:06.110
  • "world," and it's literally
  • 00:26:06.110 --> 00:26:07.120
  • talking about the spirit behind
  • 00:26:07.120 --> 00:26:08.290
  • the system.
  • 00:26:08.290 --> 00:26:10.070
  • That's what the enemy is trying
  • 00:26:10.070 --> 00:26:12.090
  • to rule and rob us through.
  • 00:26:12.090 --> 00:26:14.160
  • But thank God we don't have to
  • 00:26:14.160 --> 00:26:16.130
  • live conformed.
  • 00:26:16.130 --> 00:26:17.200
  • Paul, he taught people
  • 00:26:17.200 --> 00:26:19.020
  • to worship freely.
  • 00:26:19.020 --> 00:26:20.080
  • I mean, Paul and Silas,
  • 00:26:20.080 --> 00:26:21.200
  • they started singin'
  • 00:26:21.200 --> 00:26:22.290
  • those praise songs.
  • 00:26:22.290 --> 00:26:24.040
  • Well, I don't think that they
  • 00:26:24.040 --> 00:26:25.080
  • were just singing along
  • 00:26:25.080 --> 00:26:26.210
  • I think they
  • 00:26:28.220 --> 00:26:29.110
  • were singin' freely.
  • 00:26:29.110 --> 00:26:30.080
  • David, when he danced before
  • 00:26:30.080 --> 00:26:31.150
  • the Lord, it wasn't just
  • 00:26:31.150 --> 00:26:32.240
  • a beautiful,
  • 00:26:32.240 --> 00:26:33.150
  • pretty little dance.
  • 00:26:33.150 --> 00:26:34.140
  • No, it literally means
  • 00:26:34.140 --> 00:26:35.240
  • "he twirled about wildly."
  • 00:26:35.240 --> 00:26:37.170
  • as he started worshiping
  • 00:26:39.280 --> 00:26:41.180
  • and dancing before the Lord.
  • 00:26:41.180 --> 00:26:43.200
  • Hey, some people, what they see
  • 00:26:43.200 --> 00:26:45.070
  • as free worship, or creative
  • 00:26:45.070 --> 00:26:47.020
  • worship, it's not just free.
  • 00:26:47.020 --> 00:26:48.280
  • It's weird.
  • 00:26:48.280 --> 00:26:50.210
  • So we're not talking about that.
  • 00:26:50.210 --> 00:26:52.110
  • But what I am talking about is
  • 00:26:52.110 --> 00:26:54.100
  • not being boxed and ruled and
  • 00:26:54.100 --> 00:26:56.140
  • feeling like we have to conform.
  • 00:26:56.140 --> 00:26:58.000
  • The enemy doesn't want you
  • 00:26:58.000 --> 00:26:59.080
  • to break out.
  • 00:26:59.080 --> 00:27:00.060
  • And that's why I encourage you
  • 00:27:00.060 --> 00:27:01.150
  • to break out.
  • 00:27:01.150 --> 00:27:02.100
  • Step out.
  • 00:27:02.100 --> 00:27:03.010
  • Be all that God's called you
  • 00:27:03.010 --> 00:27:04.070
  • to be, amen.
  • 00:27:04.070 --> 00:27:05.280
  • Why don't we decide
  • 00:27:05.280 --> 00:27:07.210
  • that we're gonna be
  • 00:27:07.210 --> 00:27:08.100
  • blazing praising machines?
  • 00:27:08.100 --> 00:27:10.110
  • Everybody say, "Blazing
  • 00:27:10.170 --> 00:27:13.170
  • praising...machines," amen.
  • 00:27:14.220 --> 00:27:17.220
  • Because there's a power
  • 00:27:17.220 --> 00:27:18.170
  • in worship.
  • 00:27:18.170 --> 00:27:19.240
  • It's not just the songs that
  • 00:27:19.240 --> 00:27:21.070
  • help get the latecomers here.
  • 00:27:21.070 --> 00:27:23.000
  • When the church of Jesus Christ
  • 00:27:23.000 --> 00:27:24.110
  • starts worshiping,
  • 00:27:24.110 --> 00:27:26.000
  • there is something powerful.
  • 00:27:26.000 --> 00:27:27.200
  • There's a power in it that
  • 00:27:27.200 --> 00:27:29.010
  • I believe the devil hates.
  • 00:27:29.010 --> 00:27:31.020
  • But we don't have to live
  • 00:27:31.020 --> 00:27:32.000
  • fearful of the devil,
  • 00:27:32.000 --> 00:27:33.040
  • or fearful of his plans.
  • 00:27:33.040 --> 00:27:34.190
  • Jesus took captivity captive.
  • 00:27:34.190 --> 00:27:36.190
  • We've got all the resource, all
  • 00:27:36.190 --> 00:27:38.110
  • the gifts, all the possibility
  • 00:27:38.110 --> 00:27:40.040
  • we need to stand up.
  • 00:27:40.040 --> 00:27:41.220
  • Put your shoulders back.
  • 00:27:41.220 --> 00:27:43.010
  • Be who God called you to be.
  • 00:27:43.010 --> 00:27:45.150
  • Be who God called you to be.
  • 00:27:47.030 --> 00:27:50.030
  • Be bold and strong,
  • 00:27:50.270 --> 00:27:53.270

  • - Brian: In your life
  • 00:27:57.160 --> 00:28:00.180
  • God is always thinking
  • 00:28:00.180 --> 00:28:02.050
  • bigger than you are.
  • 00:28:02.050 --> 00:28:03.150
  • Do you believe that God
  • 00:28:03.150 --> 00:28:04.230
  • can come to your small town,
  • 00:28:04.230 --> 00:28:06.170
  • your small city, to your life,
  • 00:28:06.170 --> 00:28:08.190
  • that he can raise you up?
  • 00:28:08.190 --> 00:28:10.000
  • And I believe in your life,
  • 00:28:10.000 --> 00:28:11.180
  • whatever it is he's put
  • 00:28:11.180 --> 00:28:12.170
  • on your heart to do,
  • 00:28:12.170 --> 00:28:13.230
  • it may look entirely different.
  • 00:28:13.230 --> 00:28:15.110
  • But don't underestimate
  • 00:28:15.110 --> 00:28:16.240
  • what God can do.
  • 00:28:16.240 --> 00:28:17.290
  • He does do exceedingly
  • 00:28:17.290 --> 00:28:19.160
  • abundantly above anything
  • 00:28:19.160 --> 00:28:22.000
  • - Brian: In chapter 19,
  • 00:28:32.220 --> 00:28:35.080
  • here the enemy hates
  • 00:28:35.080 --> 00:28:37.090
  • losing containment,
  • 00:28:37.090 --> 00:28:39.010
  • and that's what was happening.
  • 00:28:39.010 --> 00:28:41.020
  • The Scripture tells us
  • 00:28:41.020 --> 00:28:42.050
  • One of them,
  • 00:28:44.160 --> 00:28:45.120
  • his name was Demetrius.
  • 00:28:45.120 --> 00:28:47.230
  • Well, Demetrius, he's upset,
  • 00:28:47.230 --> 00:28:49.220
  • and he gets all the other
  • 00:28:49.220 --> 00:28:50.260
  • silversmiths together because
  • 00:28:50.260 --> 00:28:52.080
  • what they did, the goddess,
  • 00:28:52.080 --> 00:28:54.050
  • if you like, the great goddess
  • 00:28:54.050 --> 00:28:55.150
  • over Ephesus was Diana.
  • 00:28:55.150 --> 00:28:58.020
  • And Paul had gone into Ephesus.
  • 00:28:58.020 --> 00:28:59.240
  • And when he went into Ephesus,
  • 00:28:59.240 --> 00:29:01.100
  • he just found 12 discouraged
  • 00:29:01.100 --> 00:29:02.140
  • believers, just 12.
  • 00:29:02.140 --> 00:29:04.200
  • He started there with just 12
  • 00:29:04.200 --> 00:29:06.280
  • discouraged believers.
  • 00:29:06.280 --> 00:29:08.250
  • And in Acts chapter 19, verse 11
  • 00:29:08.250 --> 00:29:10.250
  • it says: "God did unusual
  • 00:29:10.250 --> 00:29:12.040
  • miracles by the hands of Paul."
  • 00:29:12.040 --> 00:29:14.150
  • And so the Holy Spirit
  • 00:29:14.150 --> 00:29:15.210
  • started moving.
  • 00:29:15.210 --> 00:29:16.210
  • And he started preaching
  • 00:29:16.210 --> 00:29:17.280
  • in the synagogue,
  • 00:29:17.280 --> 00:29:18.260
  • but he got thrown out of there.
  • 00:29:18.260 --> 00:29:20.120
  • And so he rented
  • 00:29:20.120 --> 00:29:21.140
  • a little school hall called
  • 00:29:21.140 --> 00:29:22.280
  • The School of Tyrannus.
  • 00:29:22.280 --> 00:29:25.230
  • It's all in Acts chapter 19.
  • 00:29:25.230 --> 00:29:27.240
  • And so God starts moving.
  • 00:29:27.240 --> 00:29:29.120
  • Two years later the Bible says,
  • 00:29:29.120 --> 00:29:31.030
  • "Every Jew and every Greek,"
  • 00:29:31.030 --> 00:29:33.170
  • in other words, everybody
  • 00:29:33.170 --> 00:29:34.250
  • in the then-known world,
  • 00:29:34.250 --> 00:29:36.180
  • had started to hear about
  • 00:29:36.180 --> 00:29:38.130
  • what God did in Ephesus.
  • 00:29:38.130 --> 00:29:40.240
  • Obviously, the kingdom of God
  • 00:29:40.240 --> 00:29:41.230
  • was going forward.
  • 00:29:41.230 --> 00:29:43.280
  • But the devil, who hates losing
  • 00:29:43.280 --> 00:29:45.250
  • control, hates losing territory,
  • 00:29:45.250 --> 00:29:47.210
  • hates losing conformity,
  • 00:29:47.210 --> 00:29:49.250
  • and he hates losing the capacity
  • 00:29:49.250 --> 00:29:51.080
  • to contain you.
  • 00:29:51.080 --> 00:29:52.220
  • And so Demetrius says
  • 00:29:52.220 --> 00:29:54.290
  • to all the others,
  • 00:29:54.290 --> 00:29:56.220
  • "We're making a lot of money."
  • 00:29:56.220 --> 00:29:59.060
  • He says, "Our prosperity
  • 00:29:59.060 --> 00:30:01.220
  • comes from this trade,
  • 00:30:01.220 --> 00:30:03.050
  • making these little idols
  • 00:30:03.050 --> 00:30:05.050
  • of the goddess Diana."
  • 00:30:05.050 --> 00:30:06.260
  • And all of a sudden,
  • 00:30:06.260 --> 00:30:08.080
  • Paul is telling people
  • 00:30:08.080 --> 00:30:09.070
  • and teaching people, "It's not
  • 00:30:09.070 --> 00:30:11.050
  • about a god made with hands."
  • 00:30:11.050 --> 00:30:12.290
  • He starts pointing them
  • 00:30:12.290 --> 00:30:14.140
  • to Jesus, the King of kings.
  • 00:30:14.140 --> 00:30:17.010
  • And so they're hope of profit
  • 00:30:17.010 --> 00:30:18.190
  • was gone.
  • 00:30:18.190 --> 00:30:19.180
  • And so same thing happens.
  • 00:30:19.180 --> 00:30:21.200
  • Demetrius says, "These men,
  • 00:30:21.200 --> 00:30:23.060
  • they have, he's, this Paul,
  • 00:30:23.060 --> 00:30:25.100
  • he's persuading
  • 00:30:25.100 --> 00:30:26.080
  • and turning away many."
  • 00:30:26.080 --> 00:30:28.010
  • And so suddenly, instead
  • 00:30:28.010 --> 00:30:29.290
  • of being contained--if the
  • 00:30:29.290 --> 00:30:31.220
  • enemy's losing territory, it
  • 00:30:31.220 --> 00:30:34.110
  • happens when the kingdom of God
  • 00:30:34.110 --> 00:30:35.230
  • is gaining territory.
  • 00:30:35.230 --> 00:30:37.090
  • I don't think it's the will of
  • 00:30:37.090 --> 00:30:39.010
  • the Lord for you to live
  • 00:30:39.010 --> 00:30:40.140
  • contained.
  • 00:30:40.140 --> 00:30:41.190
  • I believe he wants to bless you.
  • 00:30:41.190 --> 00:30:42.290
  • I believe he wants
  • 00:30:42.290 --> 00:30:44.010
  • to prosper you.
  • 00:30:44.010 --> 00:30:45.060
  • The Bible says
  • 00:30:45.060 --> 00:30:46.150
  • in the Old Testament that
  • 00:30:46.150 --> 00:30:48.100
  • "The wealth of the wicked
  • 00:30:48.100 --> 00:30:50.040
  • is laid up for the righteous."
  • 00:30:50.040 --> 00:30:51.250
  • You know, when I think
  • 00:30:51.250 --> 00:30:52.220
  • about prosperity right now,
  • 00:30:52.220 --> 00:30:54.010
  • I'm not just thinking about
  • 00:30:54.010 --> 00:30:55.090
  • you having lots of money.
  • 00:30:55.090 --> 00:30:56.260
  • That's not what comes to mind.
  • 00:30:56.260 --> 00:30:58.230
  • It literally means
  • 00:30:58.230 --> 00:30:59.260
  • "help for the journey."
  • 00:30:59.260 --> 00:31:01.140
  • When I think of our church
  • 00:31:01.140 --> 00:31:02.270
  • prospering, I'm not thinking
  • 00:31:02.270 --> 00:31:04.170
  • of our church being rich.
  • 00:31:04.170 --> 00:31:06.040
  • We will always have more vision
  • 00:31:06.040 --> 00:31:07.140
  • than money.
  • 00:31:07.140 --> 00:31:08.120
  • I think about the church
  • 00:31:08.120 --> 00:31:09.290
  • being unified.
  • 00:31:09.290 --> 00:31:10.280
  • I think about the people
  • 00:31:10.280 --> 00:31:12.010
  • being blessed.
  • 00:31:12.010 --> 00:31:13.010
  • I think about the church
  • 00:31:13.010 --> 00:31:14.170
  • going forward.
  • 00:31:14.170 --> 00:31:15.220
  • I think about the name of Jesus
  • 00:31:15.220 --> 00:31:17.220
  • being lifted up.
  • 00:31:17.220 --> 00:31:18.250
  • I think about the will of God
  • 00:31:18.250 --> 00:31:20.110
  • being done on earth
  • 00:31:20.110 --> 00:31:21.200
  • as it already is in heaven.
  • 00:31:21.200 --> 00:31:23.100
  • And so here's the thing:
  • 00:31:23.100 --> 00:31:25.210
  • I would encourage you to believe
  • 00:31:25.210 --> 00:31:27.230
  • for God to bless you, believe
  • 00:31:27.230 --> 00:31:30.000
  • for your life to go forward.
  • 00:31:30.000 --> 00:31:31.110
  • If your life's about serving
  • 00:31:31.110 --> 00:31:32.200
  • Jesus, and you really believe
  • 00:31:32.200 --> 00:31:34.220
  • that prosperity, the biblical
  • 00:31:34.220 --> 00:31:37.040
  • word "prosperity" is not just
  • 00:31:37.040 --> 00:31:39.040
  • about us having piles of money.
  • 00:31:39.040 --> 00:31:40.280
  • It's all about being resources
  • 00:31:40.280 --> 00:31:42.170
  • for the will of God in our life,
  • 00:31:42.170 --> 00:31:44.080
  • to be able to do all he's called
  • 00:31:44.080 --> 00:31:45.210
  • you for and called you to,
  • 00:31:45.210 --> 00:31:47.240
  • in Jesus' name.
  • 00:31:47.240 --> 00:31:49.150
  • And so they were
  • 00:31:49.150 --> 00:31:50.200
  • losing prosperity.
  • 00:31:50.200 --> 00:31:52.010
  • In the meantime, the kingdom
  • 00:31:52.010 --> 00:31:53.130
  • of God was being blessed.
  • 00:31:53.130 --> 00:31:55.280
  • And as I said, there in Ephesus,
  • 00:31:55.280 --> 00:31:57.290
  • the whole world started to hear
  • 00:31:57.290 --> 00:32:00.020
  • about what God was doing.
  • 00:32:00.020 --> 00:32:02.020
  • Do you believe that a day could
  • 00:32:02.040 --> 00:32:05.040
  • come when the whole world
  • 00:32:05.040 --> 00:32:07.190
  • hears about what God is doing
  • 00:32:07.190 --> 00:32:10.110
  • in your life?
  • 00:32:10.110 --> 00:32:12.010
  • I grew up in New Zealand before
  • 00:32:12.150 --> 00:32:15.150
  • God set me free and took me to
  • 00:32:15.150 --> 00:32:17.010
  • the promised land, Australia.
  • 00:32:17.010 --> 00:32:19.230
  • You know, New Zealand's
  • 00:32:19.230 --> 00:32:21.140
  • actually a beautiful country
  • 00:32:21.140 --> 00:32:22.120
  • to come from.
  • 00:32:24.110 --> 00:32:27.110
  • I can't help myself.
  • 00:32:27.110 --> 00:32:29.240
  • When I lived in New Zealand,
  • 00:32:29.240 --> 00:32:32.120
  • there was only 3 million people,
  • 00:32:32.120 --> 00:32:35.020
  • and 70 million sheep.
  • 00:32:35.020 --> 00:32:37.280
  • That's a fact.
  • 00:32:37.280 --> 00:32:38.230
  • We were outnumbered
  • 00:32:38.230 --> 00:32:39.250
  • multiple times.
  • 00:32:39.250 --> 00:32:41.260
  • Three million people,
  • 00:32:41.260 --> 00:32:43.050
  • seventy million sheep.
  • 00:32:43.050 --> 00:32:45.160
  • When we started a church
  • 00:32:45.160 --> 00:32:47.250
  • 33 years ago in the suburbs of
  • 00:32:47.250 --> 00:32:50.100
  • Sydney, right on the rural edge
  • 00:32:50.100 --> 00:32:53.040
  • of the city back then, and
  • 00:32:53.040 --> 00:32:55.100
  • you had a said, "One day your
  • 00:32:55.100 --> 00:32:57.240
  • worship will be sung all around
  • 00:32:57.240 --> 00:32:59.110
  • the world, every continent,"
  • 00:32:59.110 --> 00:33:01.150
  • and if you had a said that,
  • 00:33:01.150 --> 00:33:02.290
  • "you'll have conferences,
  • 00:33:02.290 --> 00:33:04.270
  • Colour Conference," my wife's
  • 00:33:04.270 --> 00:33:06.120
  • conference--this time she did it
  • 00:33:06.120 --> 00:33:08.240
  • 4 times in Sydney with thousands
  • 00:33:08.240 --> 00:33:11.090
  • of thousands of women
  • 00:33:11.090 --> 00:33:12.170
  • and then went to Cape Town,
  • 00:33:12.170 --> 00:33:14.000
  • then went to London and Kiev
  • 00:33:14.000 --> 00:33:16.100
  • and finally to New York City
  • 00:33:16.100 --> 00:33:18.030
  • with multiple tens of thousands
  • 00:33:18.030 --> 00:33:20.250
  • of women reached overall.
  • 00:33:20.250 --> 00:33:22.260
  • And our Hillsong Conference,
  • 00:33:22.260 --> 00:33:24.070
  • now we're coming toward the end
  • 00:33:24.070 --> 00:33:25.120
  • of being in three different
  • 00:33:25.120 --> 00:33:26.280
  • continents, in three different
  • 00:33:26.280 --> 00:33:28.050
  • parts of the world.
  • 00:33:28.050 --> 00:33:29.070
  • If you had a told me that
  • 00:33:29.070 --> 00:33:30.140
  • one day they'd make a movie,
  • 00:33:30.140 --> 00:33:32.030
  • they'd come and ask,
  • 00:33:32.030 --> 00:33:33.060
  • "Can we make a movie
  • 00:33:33.060 --> 00:33:34.280
  • about what God is doing?"
  • 00:33:34.280 --> 00:33:36.180
  • If you told me, "One day
  • 00:33:36.180 --> 00:33:37.190
  • someone'd give you a channel,"
  • 00:33:37.190 --> 00:33:38.290
  • if someone said to me, "Did you
  • 00:33:38.290 --> 00:33:40.040
  • ever dream of a TV channel?"
  • 00:33:40.040 --> 00:33:42.000
  • I definitely was only thinking,
  • 00:33:42.000 --> 00:33:43.070
  • "Australia."
  • 00:33:43.070 --> 00:33:45.100
  • But I believe God,
  • 00:33:45.100 --> 00:33:46.120
  • he always outdoes us.
  • 00:33:46.120 --> 00:33:47.250
  • You talk about territory.
  • 00:33:47.250 --> 00:33:50.110
  • Listen to this.
  • 00:33:50.110 --> 00:33:51.020
  • In Acts chapter 1,
  • 00:33:51.020 --> 00:33:51.260
  • when the early church--Jesus,
  • 00:33:51.260 --> 00:33:54.210
  • of course, was resurrected
  • 00:33:54.210 --> 00:33:55.280
  • and was about to ascend.
  • 00:33:55.280 --> 00:33:57.170
  • And one of the last things
  • 00:33:57.170 --> 00:33:59.070
  • he says in verse 6, or around
  • 00:33:59.070 --> 00:34:02.020
  • there, in Acts chapter 1, he
  • 00:34:02.020 --> 00:34:03.160
  • says to his followers, he says:
  • 00:34:03.180 --> 00:34:06.180
  • "Hey, don't go anywhere yet.
  • 00:34:06.180 --> 00:34:08.170
  • The Holy Spirit is coming."
  • 00:34:08.170 --> 00:34:10.260
  • And this is what they said.
  • 00:34:10.260 --> 00:34:12.200
  • They said, "Are you gonna
  • 00:34:12.200 --> 00:34:14.020
  • restore the kingdom of Israel?"
  • 00:34:14.020 --> 00:34:16.030
  • So they were just thinking,
  • 00:34:16.030 --> 00:34:17.060
  • "Israel."
  • 00:34:17.060 --> 00:34:18.220
  • Two verses later
  • 00:34:18.220 --> 00:34:20.120
  • the Bible says, "You shall
  • 00:34:20.120 --> 00:34:22.020
  • "Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria,
  • 00:34:27.090 --> 00:34:30.090
  • and the ends of the earth."
  • 00:34:30.090 --> 00:34:31.270
  • They were thinking,
  • 00:34:31.270 --> 00:34:32.210
  • He was thinking,
  • 00:34:34.230 --> 00:34:35.250
  • "The ends of the earth."
  • 00:34:35.250 --> 00:34:37.110
  • God is always
  • 00:34:37.110 --> 00:34:38.120
  • thinking bigger than we are.
  • 00:34:38.120 --> 00:34:40.050
  • In your life God is always
  • 00:34:40.050 --> 00:34:41.260
  • thinking bigger than you are.
  • 00:34:41.260 --> 00:34:43.290
  • Do you believe that God can come
  • 00:34:43.290 --> 00:34:45.290
  • to your small town,
  • 00:34:45.290 --> 00:34:47.010
  • your small city, to your life,
  • 00:34:47.010 --> 00:34:48.270
  • that he can raise you up?
  • 00:34:48.270 --> 00:34:50.120
  • If he can raise a young kiwi boy
  • 00:34:50.120 --> 00:34:52.170
  • full of insecurity, living in
  • 00:34:52.170 --> 00:34:54.110
  • a country of 3 million people,
  • 00:34:54.110 --> 00:34:56.080
  • with a big vision.
  • 00:34:56.080 --> 00:34:57.140
  • And yet, if you had ever told me
  • 00:34:57.140 --> 00:34:59.040
  • the doors that God would open, I
  • 00:34:59.040 --> 00:35:00.230
  • just could not have believed it.
  • 00:35:00.230 --> 00:35:02.170
  • It truly is exceeding abundant
  • 00:35:02.170 --> 00:35:03.270
  • and above anything I could ever
  • 00:35:03.270 --> 00:35:05.140
  • ask or think.
  • 00:35:05.140 --> 00:35:06.240
  • And I'll tell you right now, God
  • 00:35:06.240 --> 00:35:08.020
  • does not love me any more
  • 00:35:08.020 --> 00:35:09.150
  • than he loves you.
  • 00:35:09.150 --> 00:35:10.260
  • And I believe in your life,
  • 00:35:10.260 --> 00:35:12.080
  • whatever it is he's put
  • 00:35:12.080 --> 00:35:13.120
  • on your heart to do,
  • 00:35:13.120 --> 00:35:14.120
  • it may look entirely different.
  • 00:35:14.120 --> 00:35:16.000
  • But don't underestimate
  • 00:35:16.000 --> 00:35:17.110
  • what God can do.
  • 00:35:17.110 --> 00:35:18.200
  • He does do exceedingly
  • 00:35:18.200 --> 00:35:20.050
  • abundantly above anything
  • 00:35:20.050 --> 00:35:22.220

  • - Brian: I've learned never to
  • 00:35:27.200 --> 00:35:30.200
  • underestimate what God can do.
  • 00:35:30.200 --> 00:35:32.100
  • He is full of surprises.
  • 00:35:32.100 --> 00:35:33.180
  • You stay consistent.
  • 00:35:33.180 --> 00:35:34.220
  • You stay faithful.
  • 00:35:34.220 --> 00:35:35.230
  • And you watch what God can do.
  • 00:35:35.230 --> 00:35:37.130
  • There are times when we just
  • 00:35:37.130 --> 00:35:38.220
  • have to say to the devil,
  • 00:35:38.220 --> 00:35:39.260
  • "I'm giving you no advantage."
  • 00:35:39.260 --> 00:35:42.110
  • Why don't you decide
  • 00:35:42.110 --> 00:35:43.110
  • you're gonna give the devil
  • 00:35:43.110 --> 00:35:44.180
  • no advantage, no advantage
  • 00:35:44.180 --> 00:35:47.010
  • - Brian: I'd love you
  • 00:35:56.230 --> 00:35:57.150
  • to think about this.
  • 00:35:57.150 --> 00:35:58.120
  • The devil hates losing control,
  • 00:35:58.120 --> 00:35:59.230
  • territory, conformity,
  • 00:35:59.230 --> 00:36:02.010
  • having to fit in,
  • 00:36:02.010 --> 00:36:03.230
  • Well, I'll tell you what happens
  • 00:36:05.290 --> 00:36:07.280
  • if a pastor, a leader, a boss,
  • 00:36:08.100 --> 00:36:11.100
  • a husband, maybe a wife, or
  • 00:36:11.100 --> 00:36:13.080
  • a girlfriend, or a boyfriend,
  • 00:36:13.080 --> 00:36:16.010
  • if they're feeling insecure, if
  • 00:36:16.010 --> 00:36:18.040
  • they start feeling threatened,
  • 00:36:18.040 --> 00:36:20.010
  • I'll tell you what they become.
  • 00:36:20.010 --> 00:36:22.050
  • They become more controlling,
  • 00:36:22.230 --> 00:36:25.230
  • more territorial,
  • 00:36:25.230 --> 00:36:27.030
  • "This is my city."
  • 00:36:27.030 --> 00:36:29.030
  • None of us are in our city.
  • 00:36:29.030 --> 00:36:30.280
  • They become more threatened
  • 00:36:30.280 --> 00:36:33.200
  • by someone else stepping out,
  • 00:36:33.200 --> 00:36:35.220
  • standing out, and somebody not
  • 00:36:35.220 --> 00:36:37.220
  • fitting into their box.
  • 00:36:37.220 --> 00:36:39.090
  • And they become very threatened
  • 00:36:39.090 --> 00:36:41.040
  • by another person's blessing,
  • 00:36:41.040 --> 00:36:43.040
  • another person's prosperity.
  • 00:36:43.040 --> 00:36:45.140
  • That's why we don't want to
  • 00:36:45.140 --> 00:36:46.190
  • build around our insecurities
  • 00:36:46.190 --> 00:36:48.160
  • and our flesh and our
  • 00:36:48.160 --> 00:36:49.210
  • carnality, because suddenly
  • 00:36:49.210 --> 00:36:51.100
  • we're cooperating with
  • 00:36:51.100 --> 00:36:52.250
  • the wrong side.
  • 00:36:52.250 --> 00:36:54.060
  • What we wanna do
  • 00:36:54.060 --> 00:36:55.010
  • is cooperate with Jesus
  • 00:36:55.010 --> 00:36:56.130
  • 'cause he doesn't control.
  • 00:36:56.130 --> 00:36:57.270
  • He brings freedom.
  • 00:36:57.270 --> 00:36:59.010
  • We give him control.
  • 00:36:59.010 --> 00:37:00.140
  • Because he's not territorial,
  • 00:37:00.140 --> 00:37:02.100
  • saying, "Get out of my turf."
  • 00:37:02.100 --> 00:37:04.060
  • He wants to give you ground.
  • 00:37:04.060 --> 00:37:06.010
  • He wants to, like we were
  • 00:37:06.010 --> 00:37:07.190
  • promised in the early church,
  • 00:37:07.190 --> 00:37:09.110
  • through the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:37:09.110 --> 00:37:10.120
  • "Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria,
  • 00:37:10.120 --> 00:37:12.070
  • the ends of the earth."
  • 00:37:12.070 --> 00:37:13.220
  • I've learned never to
  • 00:37:13.220 --> 00:37:15.000
  • underestimate what God can do.
  • 00:37:15.000 --> 00:37:16.250
  • He is full of surprises.
  • 00:37:16.250 --> 00:37:18.020
  • You stay consistent.
  • 00:37:18.020 --> 00:37:19.040
  • You stay faithful.
  • 00:37:19.040 --> 00:37:20.060
  • And you watch what God can do.
  • 00:37:20.060 --> 00:37:21.290
  • There are times when we just
  • 00:37:21.290 --> 00:37:23.030
  • have to say to the devil,
  • 00:37:23.030 --> 00:37:24.080
  • "I'm giving you no advantage."
  • 00:37:24.080 --> 00:37:26.290
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 2,
  • 00:37:26.290 --> 00:37:28.230
  • verse 10 and 11,
  • 00:37:28.230 --> 00:37:30.270
  • if I was to paraphrase
  • 00:37:30.270 --> 00:37:31.190
  • verse 10, this is what it says.
  • 00:37:31.190 --> 00:37:34.000
  • Paul says, "I'm not gonna hold
  • 00:37:34.000 --> 00:37:35.090
  • unforgiveness in my life,"
  • 00:37:35.090 --> 00:37:37.170
  • and in verse 9, "lest Satan
  • 00:37:37.170 --> 00:37:39.150
  • take advantage of me.
  • 00:37:39.150 --> 00:37:41.140
  • For I'm not ignorant of
  • 00:37:41.140 --> 00:37:42.160
  • his devices."
  • 00:37:42.160 --> 00:37:44.110
  • He said, "Lest Satan
  • 00:37:44.110 --> 00:37:45.120
  • take advantage of me."
  • 00:37:45.120 --> 00:37:47.060
  • Why don't you decide
  • 00:37:47.060 --> 00:37:48.050
  • you're gonna give
  • 00:37:48.050 --> 00:37:49.070
  • the devil no advantage,
  • 00:37:49.070 --> 00:37:51.010
  • no advantage and no permission?
  • 00:37:51.010 --> 00:37:53.060
  • Luke chapter 8, verse 32, that's
  • 00:37:53.060 --> 00:37:55.260
  • where Jesus went to the other
  • 00:37:55.260 --> 00:37:57.140
  • side, and he came across a man
  • 00:37:57.140 --> 00:38:00.060
  • being controlled by
  • 00:38:00.060 --> 00:38:01.120
  • demon spirits, cutting himself
  • 00:38:01.120 --> 00:38:02.250
  • and naked and locked in chains.
  • 00:38:02.250 --> 00:38:05.040
  • He'd break the chains.
  • 00:38:05.040 --> 00:38:06.240
  • And so here's
  • 00:38:06.240 --> 00:38:07.240
  • a horrible situation.
  • 00:38:07.240 --> 00:38:09.260
  • And in the presence of Jesus,
  • 00:38:09.260 --> 00:38:11.140
  • what does the Bible say happens?
  • 00:38:11.140 --> 00:38:13.070
  • I'll tell you what happens.
  • 00:38:13.070 --> 00:38:14.240
  • They start begging Jesus.
  • 00:38:14.240 --> 00:38:16.130
  • They said, "'Jesus, we beg you,
  • 00:38:16.130 --> 00:38:18.130
  • permit us to go into the swine,
  • 00:38:18.130 --> 00:38:20.240
  • into the pigs.'
  • 00:38:20.240 --> 00:38:22.040
  • And Jesus permitted them,"
  • 00:38:22.040 --> 00:38:23.240
  • the Bible says.
  • 00:38:23.240 --> 00:38:25.000
  • The devil has no more control
  • 00:38:25.000 --> 00:38:27.170
  • over your life than you give him
  • 00:38:27.170 --> 00:38:29.160
  • permission to have.
  • 00:38:29.160 --> 00:38:30.200
  • No advantage.

  • No permission.
  • 00:38:33.140 --> 00:38:35.270
  • No opportunity.

  • 1 Peter chapter 5, verse 8
  • 00:38:38.030 --> 00:38:40.220

  • the adversary, going around
  • 00:38:41.280 --> 00:38:43.260

  • 00:38:45.270 --> 00:38:48.270
  • Hillsong Conference, why
  • 00:38:48.270 --> 00:38:51.060
  • don't you decide, "He may not"?
  • 00:38:51.060 --> 00:38:53.060
  • He may not.
  • 00:38:56.110 --> 00:38:57.200
  • No advantage.
  • 00:38:57.200 --> 00:38:58.280
  • No permission.
  • 00:38:58.280 --> 00:39:00.040
  • No opportunity.

  • 00:39:27.220 --> 00:39:28.240
  • You start troubling the devil
  • 00:39:28.240 --> 00:39:30.140
  • when we decide and
  • 00:39:30.140 --> 00:39:31.150

  • that God is on our side.
  • 00:39:34.170 --> 00:39:36.150
  • You start troubling the devil

  • when you live a life with
  • 00:39:37.250 --> 00:39:39.060
  • vision, and you do aspire,
  • 00:39:39.060 --> 00:39:40.290
  • and you attach that vision
  • 00:39:40.290 --> 00:39:42.140
  • to God's cause.
  • 00:39:42.140 --> 00:39:43.220
  • Jesus said,

  • into the world."
  • 00:39:47.070 --> 00:39:48.050
  • Jesus knew he was
  • 00:39:48.050 --> 00:39:49.100
  • on this planet for a cause.
  • 00:39:49.100 --> 00:39:51.020
  • And we're called to a cause.
  • 00:39:51.020 --> 00:39:52.200
  • And our vision, when it's just
  • 00:39:52.200 --> 00:39:54.060
  • about ourselves,
  • 00:39:54.060 --> 00:39:55.040
  • is limited to ourselves.
  • 00:39:55.040 --> 00:39:56.200
  • But you make it about
  • 00:39:56.200 --> 00:39:57.200
  • the kingdom of God, and
  • 00:39:57.200 --> 00:39:59.070
  • watch how he can do exceedingly
  • 00:39:59.070 --> 00:40:00.130
  • abundantly above anything
  • 00:40:00.130 --> 00:40:02.270
  • you could ever ask or think.
  • 00:40:02.270 --> 00:40:05.050
  • Why don't we decide to make
  • 00:40:05.050 --> 00:40:06.240
  • our families a fortress?
  • 00:40:06.240 --> 00:40:08.270
  • Why don't we decide to make
  • 00:40:08.270 --> 00:40:10.130
  • our marriage a fortress?
  • 00:40:10.130 --> 00:40:12.130
  • Make it impregnable
  • 00:40:12.130 --> 00:40:13.250
  • by the unity that we have.
  • 00:40:13.250 --> 00:40:15.220
  • Let's make our churches
  • 00:40:15.220 --> 00:40:16.270
  • a fortress because where there's
  • 00:40:16.270 --> 00:40:18.220
  • unity, the Bible promises
  • 00:40:18.220 --> 00:40:20.250
  • there is blessing.
  • 00:40:20.250 --> 00:40:22.110
  • Let's build the right people
  • 00:40:22.110 --> 00:40:23.110
  • into our lives.
  • 00:40:23.110 --> 00:40:24.160
  • Have the right friends.
  • 00:40:24.160 --> 00:40:25.190
  • Have good people.
  • 00:40:25.190 --> 00:40:26.180
  • Make sure you are part of
  • 00:40:26.180 --> 00:40:28.000
  • a local church.
  • 00:40:28.000 --> 00:40:29.050
  • Make sure that you are part of
  • 00:40:29.050 --> 00:40:30.200
  • a small group or a connect
  • 00:40:30.200 --> 00:40:32.110
  • group and you have relationships
  • 00:40:32.110 --> 00:40:33.290
  • and friendships that are
  • 00:40:33.290 --> 00:40:35.080
  • taking you forward.
  • 00:40:35.080 --> 00:40:36.070
  • That'll trouble the devil.
  • 00:40:36.070 --> 00:40:37.230
  • Let's live our lives where we're
  • 00:40:37.230 --> 00:40:39.100
  • committed to being successful.
  • 00:40:39.100 --> 00:40:41.040
  • That's what God promised Joshua,
  • 00:40:41.040 --> 00:40:42.220
  • "Everywhere you put the sole
  • 00:40:42.220 --> 00:40:44.130
  • of your feet, I'm gonna
  • 00:40:44.130 --> 00:40:45.170
  • give it to ya, everywhere."
  • 00:40:45.170 --> 00:40:47.110
  • And yes, there might be
  • 00:40:47.110 --> 00:40:48.280
  • a few battles
  • 00:40:48.280 --> 00:40:49.210
  • along the way.
  • 00:40:49.210 --> 00:40:50.100
  • You have to be strong
  • 00:40:50.100 --> 00:40:51.020
  • and courageous.
  • 00:40:51.020 --> 00:40:51.260
  • Just 31 one of 'em, but ha!
  • 00:40:51.260 --> 00:40:53.170
  • What's that?
  • 00:40:53.170 --> 00:40:54.260
  • Maybe you're facing
  • 00:40:54.260 --> 00:40:55.220
  • your 31 kings.
  • 00:40:55.220 --> 00:40:57.170
  • Maybe you can't think of
  • 00:40:57.170 --> 00:40:59.110
  • 31 different kings that are
  • 00:40:59.110 --> 00:41:01.000
  • trying to come against you,
  • 00:41:01.000 --> 00:41:02.180
  • but I can give you 31.
  • 00:41:02.180 --> 00:41:04.110
  • That's why we need to be
  • 00:41:04.110 --> 00:41:05.210
  • resilient.
  • 00:41:05.210 --> 00:41:06.220
  • That's why we need to decide
  • 00:41:06.220 --> 00:41:08.020
  • that we serve Jesus Christ.
  • 00:41:08.020 --> 00:41:10.290
  • He's already taken
  • 00:41:10.290 --> 00:41:12.040
  • captivity captive.
  • 00:41:12.040 --> 00:41:13.170
  • The territory is ours,
  • 00:41:13.170 --> 00:41:15.060
  • in Jesus' name.
  • 00:41:15.060 --> 00:41:16.120
  • That freedom, not control,
  • 00:41:16.120 --> 00:41:18.120
  • is our portion.
  • 00:41:18.120 --> 00:41:19.140
  • We need to understand that,
  • 00:41:19.140 --> 00:41:21.040
  • yes, we can step out.
  • 00:41:21.040 --> 00:41:22.190
  • We can be different.
  • 00:41:22.190 --> 00:41:23.200
  • Be part of the 1%, that 1%
  • 00:41:23.230 --> 00:41:26.230
  • who becomes all
  • 00:41:26.230 --> 00:41:27.250
  • that God called them to be.
  • 00:41:27.250 --> 00:41:29.180
  • Well, listen to it.
  • 00:41:29.180 --> 00:41:31.020
  • Here's 31 kings I'm believing
  • 00:41:31.020 --> 00:41:32.240
  • for you and I, and everyone
  • 00:41:32.240 --> 00:41:34.120
  • in this room, to overcome.
  • 00:41:34.120 --> 00:41:36.080
  • Here they go:
  • 00:41:36.080 --> 00:41:37.090
  • Number one, temptation.
  • 00:41:37.090 --> 00:41:38.220
  • Number two, sin.
  • 00:41:38.220 --> 00:41:39.190
  • Number three, fear.
  • 00:41:39.190 --> 00:41:40.190
  • Number four, discouragement.
  • 00:41:40.190 --> 00:41:41.210
  • Number five, depression.
  • 00:41:41.210 --> 00:41:42.270
  • Six, worry, hopelessness,
  • 00:41:42.270 --> 00:41:44.290
  • opposition, addiction, anger,
  • 00:41:44.290 --> 00:41:47.080
  • quitting, moving, deception,
  • 00:41:47.080 --> 00:41:50.020
  • weariness, burnout, stress,
  • 00:41:50.150 --> 00:41:53.150
  • distress, poor choices,
  • 00:41:53.150 --> 00:41:55.070
  • lack of wisdom, dependencies,
  • 00:41:55.070 --> 00:41:57.160
  • insecurity, lack of confidence,
  • 00:41:57.160 --> 00:42:00.070
  • sickness, disease, pain,
  • 00:42:00.070 --> 00:42:02.170
  • betrayal, heartbreak, returning
  • 00:42:02.170 --> 00:42:05.100
  • to your past, sidelined.
  • 00:42:05.100 --> 00:42:07.010
  • In other words, find yourself
  • 00:42:07.010 --> 00:42:08.220
  • out of the main stream of
