  • - FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:02.120
  • OH, HE IS HERE
  • 00:00:02.140 --> 00:00:05.140
  • WITH REDEMPTION
  • 00:00:05.140 --> 00:00:06.240
  • FROM THE FALL
  • 00:00:06.240 --> 00:00:08.140
  • THAT WE MAY LIVE
  • 00:00:08.220 --> 00:00:11.220
  • FOR THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:12.100 --> 00:00:15.100
  • THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:15.170 --> 00:00:18.170
  • THE GLORY OF IT ALL
  • 00:00:20.270 --> 00:00:23.270
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:00:28.090 --> 00:00:28.280
  • HERE WE GO.
  • 00:00:28.280 --> 00:00:29.260
  • JUST OPEN OUR BIBLES
  • 00:00:29.260 --> 00:00:30.180
  • IF WE COULD TO JUDGES 6.
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:32.250
  • NOW SOME WEEKS AGO,
  • 00:00:32.250 --> 00:00:33.250
  • I SHARED WITH YOU FROM THE STORY
  • 00:00:33.250 --> 00:00:35.060
  • OF GIDEON SOME TIME AGO,
  • 00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:39.240
  • AND I'M NOT SURE
  • 00:00:39.240 --> 00:00:41.160
  • WHEN THIS IS AIRING
  • 00:00:41.160 --> 00:00:42.210
  • FOR THOSE WATCHING
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:43.160
  • ON TELEVISION, BUT JUST SHARED
  • 00:00:45.120 --> 00:00:48.120
  • THE STORY OF GIDEON
  • 00:00:48.120 --> 00:00:49.260
  • THAT I LOVE SO MUCH.
  • 00:00:50.050 --> 00:00:53.050
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN HE'S NOT FEELING
  • 00:00:53.050 --> 00:00:54.140
  • LIKE A MIGHT WARRIOR,
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:56.170
  • THE LORD SHOWS UP
  • 00:00:56.170 --> 00:00:58.220
  • AND CALLS HIM A MIGHTY WARRIOR.
  • 00:01:01.270 --> 00:01:04.270
  • HE'S ALWAYS CALLING THINGS
  • 00:01:04.270 --> 00:01:07.120
  • THAT AREN'T INTO BEING.
  • 00:01:07.120 --> 00:01:09.290
  • THAT'S JUST THE LORD'S PATTERN.
  • 00:01:09.290 --> 00:01:11.190
  • SO, IN CHAPTER 6,
  • 00:01:12.130 --> 00:01:15.130
  • THE ANGEL SHOWED UP,
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:16.190
  • VERSE 12 SAYS,
  • 00:01:16.190 --> 00:01:17.190
  • "AND THE ANGEL OF LORD
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:18.160
  • APPEARED TO HIM AND SAID
  • 00:01:18.160 --> 00:01:19.090
  • TO HIM THE LORD IS WITH YOU,
  • 00:01:19.090 --> 00:01:20.270
  • OH VALIANT WARRIOR,"
  • 00:01:20.270 --> 00:01:23.000
  • AND HE'S COWERING, HIDING,
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:24.210
  • VERSE 12.
  • 00:01:24.210 --> 00:01:26.100
  • THE LORD IS WITH YOU,
  • 00:01:26.100 --> 00:01:26.290
  • OH VALIANT WARRIOR.
  • 00:01:26.290 --> 00:01:28.040
  • SO, LOOK AT YOUR NEIGHBOR
  • 00:01:28.040 --> 00:01:28.260
  • AND JUST SAY,
  • 00:01:28.260 --> 00:01:29.170
  • HEY, VALIANT WARRIOR.
  • 00:01:30.020 --> 00:01:33.020
  • YEAH.
  • 00:01:33.020 --> 00:01:33.250
  • THAT'S YOU, THAT'S YOU,
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:35.100
  • AND I KNOW A LOT OF YOU MAY NOT
  • 00:01:35.100 --> 00:01:36.140
  • FEEL LIKE A VALIANT WARRIOR.
  • 00:01:36.140 --> 00:01:38.060
  • I DON'T KNOW ENOUGH.
  • 00:01:38.060 --> 00:01:38.270
  • I DON'T KNOW THE BIBLE
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:39.160
  • WELL ENOUGH.
  • 00:01:39.160 --> 00:01:40.060
  • I DON'T KNOW THIS WELL ENOUGH.
  • 00:01:40.060 --> 00:01:41.080
  • I DON'T HAVE MUCH EXPERIENCE
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:42.250
  • IN THE LORD,
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:43.170
  • I'M NOT VERY BRIGHT,
  • 00:01:43.170 --> 00:01:44.180
  • I DO THIS, I DO THAT,
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:45.250
  • BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
  • 00:01:45.250 --> 00:01:46.270
  • YOU KNOW, ALL EXCUSES,
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:49.200
  • AND THEY'RE FROM THE ENEMY.
  • 00:01:49.200 --> 00:01:51.250
  • I THINK THE LORD IS CALLING
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:52.180
  • EACH OF US A VALIANT WARRIOR
  • 00:01:52.180 --> 00:01:53.200
  • BECAUSE IF THE LORD JESUS
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:54.250
  • LIVES INSIDE OF YOU,
  • 00:01:54.250 --> 00:01:55.210
  • THAT'S THE KING OF KINGS
  • 00:01:55.210 --> 00:01:57.080
  • AND LORD OF LORDS,
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:01:58.050
  • AND HE CAN DO ANYTHING
  • 00:01:58.050 --> 00:01:59.170
  • HE WANTS
  • 00:01:59.170 --> 00:02:00.100
  • THROUGH ANY VESSEL HE WANTS.
  • 00:02:00.100 --> 00:02:01.160
  • SO, THE ANGEL SAYS THAT TO HIM.
  • 00:02:01.160 --> 00:02:02.260
  • LOOK AT VERSE 13.
  • 00:02:02.260 --> 00:02:04.110
  • "THEN GIDEON SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:02:04.110 --> 00:02:05.240
  • OH, MY LORD,
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:07.030
  • IF THE LORD IS WITH US,"
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.170
  • THIS IS CONDITIONAL.
  • 00:02:08.170 --> 00:02:10.030
  • "IF THE LORD IS WITH US,
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:13.010
  • WHY THEN HAS ALL THIS HAPPENED
  • 00:02:13.010 --> 00:02:13.230
  • TO US?"
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:14.130
  • SO, THEY'RE BEING SIEGED UPON,
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:16.160
  • "AND WHERE ARE
  • 00:02:16.160 --> 00:02:17.290
  • ALL HIS MIRACLES?"
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:20.040
  • WHERE ARE ALL HIS MIRACLES?
  • 00:02:20.040 --> 00:02:22.150
  • WHERE ARE ALL HIS MIRACLES
  • 00:02:22.150 --> 00:02:25.140
  • WHICH OUR FATHERS TOLD US ABOUT
  • 00:02:25.140 --> 00:02:27.080
  • SAYING DID NOT THE LORD
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:28.050
  • BRING US UP OUT OF EGYPT,
  • 00:02:28.050 --> 00:02:29.200
  • BUT NOW THE LORD
  • 00:02:29.200 --> 00:02:30.140
  • HAS ABANDONED US AND GIVEN US
  • 00:02:30.140 --> 00:02:31.080
  • AT THE HAND OF MIDIAN.
  • 00:02:31.080 --> 00:02:33.230
  • SO, THEY HEARD ABOUT MIRACLES
  • 00:02:33.230 --> 00:02:34.270
  • IN THE PAST, BUT THEY WEREN'T
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:35.270
  • JUST SEEING ANY.
  • 00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:38.010
  • OKAY, MAYBE WHERE YOU'RE LIVING
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:39.110
  • AND WHERE YOU'RE AT RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:02:39.110 --> 00:02:40.150
  • YOU'RE NOT SEEING MANY MIRACLES.
  • 00:02:40.150 --> 00:02:43.060
  • I'M TELLING YOU, GOD WANTS
  • 00:02:43.060 --> 00:02:44.100
  • TO POUR OUT HIS LOVE
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:45.170
  • OVER YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:02:45.170 --> 00:02:46.190
  • AND HE WANTS YOU TO SEE HIM
  • 00:02:46.190 --> 00:02:47.220
  • WORKING IN SUPERNATURAL POWER.
  • 00:02:47.270 --> 00:02:50.270
  • IF HE DIDN'T, HE WOULDN'T BE
  • 00:02:50.270 --> 00:02:52.060
  • MUCH OF A SUPERNATURAL GOD.
  • 00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:56.030
  • I WANT TO CHALLENGE THAT NOTION
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:58.050
  • THAT ALMIGHTY GOD WANTS US
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:02:59.240
  • TO BE RELIGIOUS AND QUAINT
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:03.100
  • AND TIGHT AND JUST ALL
  • 00:03:03.100 --> 00:03:05.170
  • IN CONTROL AND JUST PUT TOGETHER
  • 00:03:05.220 --> 00:03:08.220
  • NICE AND NEATLY IN A PACKAGE.
  • 00:03:08.220 --> 00:03:10.210
  • I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:12.010
  • THE LORD DOES
  • 00:03:12.010 --> 00:03:13.220
  • EXTRAORDINARY THINGS
  • 00:03:13.220 --> 00:03:14.260
  • AND CONFOUNDS THE WISDOM
  • 00:03:14.260 --> 00:03:17.010
  • OF MEN ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:03:18.100 --> 00:03:21.100
  • GOD CAN'T BE FIGURED OUT.
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:23.090
  • HE IS UNPREDICTABLE
  • 00:03:23.090 --> 00:03:25.020
  • IS WHAT I MEAN TO SAY.
  • 00:03:25.020 --> 00:03:26.170
  • WE CAN GROW IN UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:27.180
  • AND HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST,
  • 00:03:27.180 --> 00:03:28.240
  • YES, BUT GOD
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:29.280
  • IS QUITE UNPREDICTABLE.
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:32.250
  • YOU KNOW, THEY WERE LOOKING FOR
  • 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:33.270
  • A KING IN ROYAL ROBES,
  • 00:03:33.270 --> 00:03:35.080
  • AND HE WAS BORN IN A MANGER,
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:38.060
  • AND IT WAS A STUMBLING BLOCK,
  • 00:03:38.060 --> 00:03:40.130
  • AND IT WASN'T
  • 00:03:40.130 --> 00:03:41.050
  • THE INTELLIGENT ONES
  • 00:03:41.050 --> 00:03:42.030
  • THAT GOT THE FIRST NEWS,
  • 00:03:42.040 --> 00:03:45.040
  • IT WAS THE SHEPHERDS.
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:46.230
  • THE ONES, THE PASTURES,
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:48.000
  • IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:03:48.000 --> 00:03:49.150
  • THE ONES THAT SOCIETY,
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:50.110
  • POLITE SOCIETY,
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:51.010
  • DIDN'T LIKE HAVING AROUND.
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:52.000
  • THEY SENT THEM OUT FOR WEEKS
  • 00:03:52.000 --> 00:03:52.230
  • AT A TIME IN THE FIELDS.
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:54.260
  • THE ONES THAT GOT THAT
  • 00:03:54.260 --> 00:03:55.170
  • ASSIGNMENT WERE THE ONES
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:56.100
  • WE DIDN'T LIKE KEEPING AROUND.
  • 00:03:56.100 --> 00:03:57.140
  • STAY OVER THERE FOR A WHILE.
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:04:00.050
  • THINK I'M KIDDING?
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:00.290
  • NO, IT'S REALLY TRUE.
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:02.270
  • THOSE WERE THE SHEPHERDS,
  • 00:04:02.270 --> 00:04:05.000
  • AND IT'S INTERESTING
  • 00:04:05.000 --> 00:04:06.170
  • THAT A SERVANT POSITION
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:07.260
  • LIKE THAT IS WHO THE LORD
  • 00:04:07.260 --> 00:04:08.240
  • PUTS OVER A LOCAL CHURCH,
  • 00:04:08.240 --> 00:04:10.130
  • A SHEPHERD.
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:12.170
  • THE ONLY THING LOWER THAN THAT
  • 00:04:12.170 --> 00:04:13.120
  • IN THAT SOCIETY, REALLY,
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:14.120
  • ONE OF THE LOWEST POSITIONS
  • 00:04:14.120 --> 00:04:15.220
  • WAS THAT OF DEACON,
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:17.230
  • AND DEACON MEANS TABLE WAITER,
  • 00:04:18.060 --> 00:04:21.060
  • AND THE TABLE WAITERS
  • 00:04:21.060 --> 00:04:22.110
  • WERE PEOPLE
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:23.070
  • THAT WOULD COME ALONG AND WHILE
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:25.260
  • EVERYBODY IS RECLINING,
  • 00:04:25.260 --> 00:04:26.220
  • THE IMPORTANT PEOPLE,
  • 00:04:26.220 --> 00:04:27.170
  • THEY'D LET THEIR HAIR HANG DOWN
  • 00:04:27.170 --> 00:04:28.280
  • SO THE PEOPLE WHILE
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:30.060
  • THEY'RE EATING COULD REACH UP
  • 00:04:30.060 --> 00:04:31.150
  • AND WIPE THEIR HANDS
  • 00:04:31.150 --> 00:04:32.130
  • IN THEIR HAIR AND THEN GO AWAY.
  • 00:04:32.130 --> 00:04:34.090
  • SEND ME ANOTHER ONE.
  • 00:04:34.090 --> 00:04:34.290
  • MY HANDS ARE DIRTY AGAIN.
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:36.170
  • THOSE WERE THE TABLE WAITERS.
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:40.100
  • THE DEAKONOI
  • 00:04:40.100 --> 00:04:42.140
  • FOR THE GREEK SCHOLARS.
  • 00:04:42.140 --> 00:04:43.060
  • THOSE WERE THE DEACONS.
  • 00:04:43.060 --> 00:04:44.010
  • RIGHT, BARRY?
  • 00:04:44.010 --> 00:04:44.250
  • RIGHT, SEE.
  • 00:04:44.250 --> 00:04:45.210
  • YOU VERIFIED IT.
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:48.120
  • IF BARRY SAID IT,
  • 00:04:48.120 --> 00:04:49.000
  • IT MUST BE TRUE.
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:52.110
  • SO, THE LORD CHOSE THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:04:52.110 --> 00:04:54.160
  • TO DEMONSTRATE THIS LOVE
  • 00:04:54.160 --> 00:04:55.270
  • AND POWER AND SHOW AND CONFOUND
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:04:58.080
  • THE RELIGIOUS AUTHORITIES,
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:05:01.020
  • AND I TELL YOU TODAY,
  • 00:05:01.020 --> 00:05:02.100
  • IT IS ONE OF THE SADDEST THINGS
  • 00:05:02.100 --> 00:05:04.100
  • THAT SO MANY THEOLOGIANS
  • 00:05:04.100 --> 00:05:07.030
  • ARE DECEIVED INTO BELIEVING
  • 00:05:07.030 --> 00:05:09.210
  • THAT JESUS DID NOT HAVE
  • 00:05:09.210 --> 00:05:11.240
  • A BODILY RESURRECTION.
  • 00:05:12.040 --> 00:05:15.040
  • THEY ARE WALKING IN --
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:16.220
  • AND IF THAT'S YOU,
  • 00:05:16.220 --> 00:05:17.220
  • YOU ARE WALKING IN DECEPTION.
  • 00:05:18.020 --> 00:05:21.020
  • I PRAY THAT THE LORD DELIVER YOU
  • 00:05:21.020 --> 00:05:22.020
  • FROM DECEPTION,
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:24.100
  • AND I PRAY THE LORD
  • 00:05:24.100 --> 00:05:25.000
  • TO SPEAK TO YOUR HEART.
  • 00:05:25.000 --> 00:05:26.220
  • SOME OF THOSE HEARTS
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:27.200
  • ARE SOFTENING.
  • 00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:28.140
  • OTHERS HAVE TEETH GRINDING
  • 00:05:28.140 --> 00:05:30.070
  • RIGHT NOW AND THAT'S SAD.
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:33.190
  • SO, LET'S KEEP READING.
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:34.210
  • SO, GIDEON, THE POINT HERE IS
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.250
  • THAT WHERE ARE ALL THE MIRACLES?
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:40.010
  • THERE WAS A NEED TO SEE
  • 00:05:40.010 --> 00:05:40.240
  • THESE MIRACLES
  • 00:05:40.240 --> 00:05:42.000
  • BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO SEE
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:42.280
  • THAT GOD WAS WITH THEM.
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:44.210
  • FLIP BACK, IF YOU WOULD,
  • 00:05:44.210 --> 00:05:46.010
  • FROM JUDGES TO JOSHUA 24.
  • 00:05:47.190 --> 00:05:50.190
  • JUST A FEW PAGES.
  • 00:05:50.190 --> 00:05:52.080
  • AT THE END OF THE BOOK
  • 00:05:52.080 --> 00:05:54.070
  • OF JOSHUA 24:31,
  • 00:05:54.070 --> 00:05:56.220
  • "AND ISRAEL SERVED THE LORD
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:58.220
  • ALL THE DAYS OF JOSHUA
  • 00:05:58.220 --> 00:06:00.070
  • AND ALL THE DAYS OF THE ELDERS
  • 00:06:00.070 --> 00:06:01.220
  • WHO SURVIVED JOSHUA,"
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:04.020
  • THAT IS AFTER JOSHUA
  • 00:06:04.020 --> 00:06:06.230
  • AND LISTEN TO THIS
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:07.220
  • CHARACTERISTIC OF THOSE,
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:09.060
  • "AND WHO HAD KNOWN
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:10.030
  • ALL THE DEEDS OF THE LORD
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:12.280
  • WHICH HE HAD DONE FOR ISRAEL."
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:14.060
  • THAT IS ALL THE MIRACLES
  • 00:06:14.060 --> 00:06:15.010
  • THAT HE HAD DONE.
  • 00:06:15.010 --> 00:06:17.010
  • HE SAID, NOW ISRAEL,
  • 00:06:17.010 --> 00:06:18.190
  • THE PEOPLE OF GOD,
  • 00:06:18.190 --> 00:06:19.150
  • SERVE THE LORD
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:20.260
  • WHILE THEY HAD JOSHUA,
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:22.180
  • AND THEY HAD LEADERS WHO KNEW
  • 00:06:22.180 --> 00:06:24.010
  • THE MIRACLES OF GOD.
  • 00:06:24.010 --> 00:06:25.290
  • THAT'S WHAT IT'S SAYING.
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:27.180
  • FOR WHATEVER REASON,
  • 00:06:27.180 --> 00:06:29.180
  • THE MIRACLES HAD CEASED,
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:32.110
  • AND WE GOT
  • 00:06:32.110 --> 00:06:33.080
  • THE VALIANT WARRIOR GIDEON
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:35.000
  • SAYING, I MEAN,
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.130
  • IF GOD IS WITH US,
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:37.270
  • WHERE ARE THE MIRACLES?
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:40.070
  • FAIR QUESTION.
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:42.020
  • IF GOD IS REALLY WITH US,
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:43.060
  • WHERE ARE THE MIRACLES?
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:45.080
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:46.100
  • NOW, LET'S COME TO
  • 00:06:46.100 --> 00:06:47.290
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:06:47.290 --> 00:06:48.250
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 4.
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:51.060
  • IT'S INTERESTING AND JOSHUA SAYS
  • 00:06:51.060 --> 00:06:53.180
  • AS LONG AS THERE WERE LEADERS
  • 00:06:53.180 --> 00:06:55.140
  • WHO HAD EXPERIENCE
  • 00:06:55.140 --> 00:06:56.020
  • WITH THE POWER OF GOD,
  • 00:06:56.020 --> 00:06:57.160
  • THE PEOPLE SERVED GOD.
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:06:59.090
  • WHEN THERE ARE LEADERS
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:00.050
  • THAT DO NOT HAVE EXPERIENCE
  • 00:07:00.050 --> 00:07:02.190
  • WITH THE POWER OF GOD,
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:05.010
  • THE PEOPLE TEND TO NOT BELIEVE
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:06.080
  • THAT GOD IS WITH THEM
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:09.180
  • OR THAT HIS POWER IS AVAILABLE.
  • 00:07:09.180 --> 00:07:11.290
  • OKAY?
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:12.210
  • LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:07:12.210 --> 00:07:13.250
  • AS LONG AS THERE ARE LEADERS
  • 00:07:13.250 --> 00:07:14.250
  • WHO HAVE NO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:16.040
  • WITH THE SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.020
  • POWER OF GOD,
  • 00:07:17.020 --> 00:07:18.070
  • THE PEOPLE TEND TO ALSO BELIEVE
  • 00:07:18.070 --> 00:07:19.120
  • THAT GOD IS NOT WITH THEM
  • 00:07:19.120 --> 00:07:20.190
  • AND THAT THE MIRACLES
  • 00:07:20.190 --> 00:07:22.260
  • ARE NOT FOR THEM OR UNAVAILABLE.
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:26.270
  • SO, LET'S LOOK AT
  • 00:07:26.270 --> 00:07:27.290
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 4:20.
  • 00:07:29.160 --> 00:07:32.160
  • I'M PRAYING THAT TODAY
  • 00:07:32.160 --> 00:07:34.240
  • YOU WALK OUT OF HERE
  • 00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:36.030
  • EXPECTING TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:07:36.030 --> 00:07:38.070
  • GOD'S SUPERNATURAL POWER
  • 00:07:38.070 --> 00:07:40.090
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:07:40.090 --> 00:07:41.280
  • THAT'S THE GOAL
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:42.170
  • OF THIS MESSAGE TODAY.
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:43.280
  • IF YOU'RE WONDERING
  • 00:07:43.280 --> 00:07:44.260
  • WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY,
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:45.230
  • I'M TRYING TO GET YOU TO WANT
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:46.280
  • TO INVITE THE SUPERNATURAL POWER
  • 00:07:46.280 --> 00:07:49.030
  • OF GOD INTO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:07:49.030 --> 00:07:51.270
  • AFTER ALL, WHO WANTS TO FOLLOW
  • 00:07:51.270 --> 00:07:52.290
  • A SUPERNATURAL GOD
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:54.050
  • WHO NEVER DOES
  • 00:07:54.050 --> 00:07:54.260
  • ANYTHING SUPERNATURAL?
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:57.090
  • A SUPERNATURAL GOD
  • 00:07:57.090 --> 00:07:59.010
  • OR A GOD THAT CAN BE
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:07:59.240
  • PERFECTLY EXPLAINED,
  • 00:07:59.260 --> 00:08:02.280
  • THAT'S NOT MUCH OF A GOD.
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:05.000
  • I'M HERE TO TELL YOU
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:06.140
  • WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING,
  • 00:08:06.140 --> 00:08:07.200
  • HE WANTS TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:08:07.200 --> 00:08:08.180
  • HOW MUCH HE LOVES YOU.
  • 00:08:08.180 --> 00:08:10.250
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 4:20,
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:13.110
  • "FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD
  • 00:08:13.110 --> 00:08:14.060
  • DOES NOT CONSIST IN WORDS,
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:16.090
  • BUT IN POWER."
  • 00:08:16.090 --> 00:08:19.000
  • HOW ELSE DO YOU READ THAT?
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:22.010
  • WE CAN HAVE QUIET CONVERSATION,
  • 00:08:22.010 --> 00:08:23.140
  • REFLECTION ABOUT GOD
  • 00:08:23.140 --> 00:08:24.180
  • AND THE THINGS OF GOD
  • 00:08:24.180 --> 00:08:25.140
  • AND THAT HAS GREAT VALUE,
  • 00:08:25.140 --> 00:08:26.240
  • BUT WHEN THERE'S NO POWER?
  • 00:08:26.240 --> 00:08:29.210
  • I WAS PRAYING WITH SOMEONE
  • 00:08:29.210 --> 00:08:31.220
  • IN THE HOSPITAL
  • 00:08:31.220 --> 00:08:32.220
  • NOT THAT LONG AGO
  • 00:08:32.220 --> 00:08:33.170
  • WHO WAS GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:08:33.170 --> 00:08:34.090
  • OPEN-HEART SURGERY,
  • 00:08:34.090 --> 00:08:35.210
  • AND THIS PERSON,
  • 00:08:35.210 --> 00:08:36.250
  • A STEADFAST BELIEVER,
  • 00:08:36.250 --> 00:08:38.140
  • WAS JUST FULL OF GRACE
  • 00:08:38.140 --> 00:08:39.210
  • AND PEACE, AND HE SAID,
  • 00:08:39.210 --> 00:08:41.140
  • LOOK, IF I SURVIVE THIS SURGERY,
  • 00:08:41.140 --> 00:08:44.070
  • PRAISE GOD.
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:46.240
  • IF I DON'T SURVIVE THIS SURGERY,
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:48.100
  • PRAISE GOD.
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:50.170
  • HE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:08:50.170 --> 00:08:51.250
  • IN HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:08:51.250 --> 00:08:53.140
  • HE WAS READY.
  • 00:08:53.140 --> 00:08:55.040
  • I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:55.220
  • THAT'S NOT NORMAL.
  • 00:08:57.110 --> 00:09:00.130
  • THAT'S A SUPERNATURAL THING
  • 00:09:00.130 --> 00:09:02.040
  • TO HAVE THAT MUCH PEACE
  • 00:09:02.040 --> 00:09:03.250
  • TO BELIEVE IN THE HOPE
  • 00:09:03.250 --> 00:09:05.270
  • OF THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:07.180
  • THAT THIS ISN'T IT,
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:09.100
  • THAT I'M GOING TO SEE
  • 00:09:09.100 --> 00:09:10.180
  • MY GRANDPA AGAIN,
  • 00:09:10.180 --> 00:09:11.180
  • MY GRANDMA AGAIN,
  • 00:09:11.180 --> 00:09:12.280
  • MY LOVED ONES AGAIN,
  • 00:09:12.280 --> 00:09:14.190
  • MY FATHER-IN-LAW AGAIN.
  • 00:09:14.190 --> 00:09:17.030
  • THEY'RE CHEERING US ON.
  • 00:09:17.030 --> 00:09:18.110
  • THEY'RE ALIVE
  • 00:09:18.110 --> 00:09:20.070
  • AND THAT'S A SUPERNATURAL THING.
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:23.030
  • OKAY.
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:23.190
  • LISTEN, STAY WITH ME.
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:24.220
  • THE WHOLE CHRISTIAN FAITH
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:26.230
  • BEGAN WITH A MIRACLE.
  • 00:09:26.230 --> 00:09:29.140
  • MARY SAID HOW CAN THIS BE?
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:32.030
  • I DON'T HAVE A HUSBAND.
  • 00:09:32.030 --> 00:09:33.230
  • THAT'S A MIRACLE,
  • 00:09:33.230 --> 00:09:35.180
  • AND IT WAS SEALED
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:36.070
  • WITH A MIRACLE.
  • 00:09:36.070 --> 00:09:37.050
  • JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:09:37.050 --> 00:09:38.260
  • AND HE HAS A FISH FRY
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:39.240
  • WITH HIS DISCIPLES
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:40.160
  • ON THE BEACH EATING FISH.
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:43.090
  • IF HE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:09:43.090 --> 00:09:44.040
  • A RESURRECTED BODY,
  • 00:09:44.040 --> 00:09:45.200
  • WHY WOULD HE BE EATING?
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:47.200
  • HOW COULD HE SHOW THOMAS
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:48.260
  • HIS WOUNDS AND SAY DON'T
  • 00:09:48.260 --> 00:09:50.110
  • BE UNBELIEVING, THOMAS, BELIEVE.
  • 00:09:50.110 --> 00:09:52.150
  • IT'S REALLY ME.
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:53.260
  • THIS IS A BODY THAT
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:09:54.150
  • YOU'RE FEELING AND CAN SEE
  • 00:09:54.150 --> 00:09:55.100
  • AND EMBRACE.
  • 00:09:55.100 --> 00:09:56.280
  • OKAY?
  • 00:09:56.280 --> 00:09:59.250
  • WE NEED THE SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:00.220
  • PRESENCE AND POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:10:00.220 --> 00:10:02.280
  • THE WHOLE GOSPEL MESSAGE,
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:06.090
  • THE WHOLE CHRISTIAN FAITH
  • 00:10:06.090 --> 00:10:08.030
  • JUST REEKS AND IS SATURATED WITH
  • 00:10:08.210 --> 00:10:11.210
  • SUPERNATURAL MOVEMENTS OF GOD.
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:15.290
  • WHY WOULD WE WANT
  • 00:10:15.290 --> 00:10:16.290
  • TO LIVE OUR LIVES APART FROM GOD
  • 00:10:16.290 --> 00:10:18.150
  • MOVING SUPERNATURALLY
  • 00:10:18.150 --> 00:10:19.280
  • IN OUR LIVES?
  • 00:10:19.280 --> 00:10:22.080
  • NOW, I'M GOING TO SAY THIS
  • 00:10:22.080 --> 00:10:23.010
  • ONE MORE TIME.
  • 00:10:23.010 --> 00:10:24.080
  • WHY WOULD WE WANT TO LIVE
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:26.030
  • OUR FAITH OUT IN SUCH A WAY
  • 00:10:26.030 --> 00:10:28.020
  • THAT THE SUPERNATURAL MOVEMENT
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:29.200
  • OF GOD IS NOT EXISTENT?
  • 00:10:29.200 --> 00:10:32.100
  • I BEG YOU FOR THE SAKE
  • 00:10:32.100 --> 00:10:34.050
  • OF SHOWING OFF GOD'S LOVE,
  • 00:10:34.050 --> 00:10:36.250
  • ASK GOD TO SHOW UP
  • 00:10:36.250 --> 00:10:38.050
  • IN SUPERNATURAL WAYS
  • 00:10:38.050 --> 00:10:39.210
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:41.010
  • ASK GOD TO SHOW UP AND ASK HIM
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:43.180
  • TO MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:44.270
  • AND REAL TO YOU.
  • 00:10:45.130 --> 00:10:48.130
  • WHEN I WAS 18 YEARS OLD
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:49.130
  • AND LIVING FAR FROM GOD,
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:51.150
  • I WAS BORED.
  • 00:10:52.100 --> 00:10:55.100
  • FUNNY, HOW CAN
  • 00:10:55.100 --> 00:10:56.060
  • AN 18-YEAR-OLD GET BORED?
  • 00:10:56.060 --> 00:10:58.290
  • I WAS LIVING ALONE.
  • 00:10:58.290 --> 00:10:59.220
  • I HAD MY OWN HOUSE.
  • 00:10:59.220 --> 00:11:00.230
  • I WORKED IN A FACTORY,
  • 00:11:00.230 --> 00:11:02.010
  • AND I WAS DOING MY OWN THING.
  • 00:11:02.010 --> 00:11:03.210
  • I WAS SO PROUD OF MYSELF,
  • 00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:06.100
  • AND I WAS VERY MACHO,
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:09.100
  • AND MY WIFE SAYS,
  • 00:11:09.100 --> 00:11:09.280
  • LIKE YOU'RE NOT TODAY.
  • 00:11:09.280 --> 00:11:12.100
  • IN ALL SERIOUSNESS,
  • 00:11:12.100 --> 00:11:14.110
  • I WAS REALLY MACHO,
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:15.040
  • AND I COULD DO EVERYTHING,
  • 00:11:15.040 --> 00:11:16.110
  • COOK, CLEAN, WASH.
  • 00:11:16.110 --> 00:11:17.080
  • I DIDN'T NEED ANYBODY.
  • 00:11:17.080 --> 00:11:18.070
  • I WAS JUST MR. INDEPENDENT.
  • 00:11:18.070 --> 00:11:20.080
  • DIDN'T WANT ANYBODY AROUND,
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:21.190
  • DIDN'T NEED ANYBODY.
  • 00:11:21.190 --> 00:11:22.230
  • I WAS MY OWN MAN,
  • 00:11:22.230 --> 00:11:23.200
  • AND ANYBODY ELSE

  • THAT COULDN'T LIVE THE WAY
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:25.240

  • TO HELP YOU BE A MAN.
  • 00:11:28.120 --> 00:11:30.210
  • THAT WAS MY ATTITUDE.
  • 00:11:30.210 --> 00:11:31.230
  • OKAY?

  • AND I CHALLENGED GOD.
  • 00:11:53.150 --> 00:11:56.150
  • AND I SAID, GOD,
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:57.030
  • THERE WAS A TIME
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:57.250
  • WHEN I THOUGHT YOU WERE REAL.
  • 00:11:57.250 --> 00:11:59.210
  • IF YOU'RE REALLY REAL,
  • 00:11:59.210 --> 00:12:02.200
  • PROVE IT,
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:04.280
  • AND I WAS AT A CROSSROADS,
  • 00:12:05.020 --> 00:12:08.020
  • AND I HAD
  • 00:12:08.020 --> 00:12:08.220

  • HAD GIVEN ME, AND I BEGAN
  • 00:12:13.200 --> 00:12:14.190
  • TO READ IT, AND THEN I COULDN'T
  • 00:12:14.190 --> 00:12:16.090
  • PUT IT DOWN, AND I KEPT

  • AT THE FACTORY,
  • 00:12:22.140 --> 00:12:23.110
  • AND I'D GET IN FIGHTS
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:24.030
  • IF PEOPLE SAID

  • PRETTY HOLY ATTITUDE, RIGHT?

  • IN THE MOST ATTRACTIVE PERSON
  • 00:16:16.110 --> 00:16:17.200
  • IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:17.200 --> 00:16:20.010
  • THIS IS WHAT WE'RE AFTER,
  • 00:16:20.010 --> 00:16:20.260
  • AND THIS IS NOT JUST FOR
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:22.090
  • A FEW ELITE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:16:22.090 --> 00:16:23.260
  • IT'S FOR EVERY MAN, WOMAN,
  • 00:16:23.260 --> 00:16:25.000
  • AND CHILD TO STEP INTO.
  • 00:16:25.000 --> 00:16:26.200
  • IT IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT IN CHRIST
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.230
  • TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:16:28.230 --> 00:16:29.120
  • THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF GOD,
  • 00:16:29.120 --> 00:16:31.160
  • AND JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:33.000
  • IT'S NOT TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:16:33.000 --> 00:16:34.230
  • OR PURSUED IN MUCH
  • 00:16:34.230 --> 00:16:36.130
  • OF THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • 00:16:36.130 --> 00:16:37.100
  • IN AMERICA,
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:38.020
  • DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT REAL.
  • 00:16:38.020 --> 00:16:40.120
  • THE LORD IS MOVING WITH POWER
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:42.030
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD,
  • 00:16:42.030 --> 00:16:43.150
  • AND I'M ASKING YOU,
  • 00:16:43.150 --> 00:16:44.270
  • I'M BEGGING YOU,
  • 00:16:44.270 --> 00:16:46.250
  • ASK THE LORD TO POUR OUT
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:47.220
  • HIS SPIRIT OVER YOU
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:48.290
  • IN SUCH A WAY THAT YOU CAN BE
  • 00:16:48.290 --> 00:16:49.290
  • SO ANOINTED WITH HIS LOVE
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:52.110
  • THAT HIS LOVE TOUCHES PEOPLE
  • 00:16:52.110 --> 00:16:53.220
  • ALL AROUND YOU
  • 00:16:53.220 --> 00:16:54.220
  • AND THAT LIVES ARE CHANGED,
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:57.080
  • AND THE, YES,
  • 00:16:57.080 --> 00:16:58.060
  • EVEN SUPERNATURAL MIRACLES
  • 00:16:58.060 --> 00:16:58.290
  • WOULD TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:00.120
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A MIRACLE
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:01.110
  • FOR SOMEBODY TO COME
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:02.040
  • TO FAITH IN CHRIST,
  • 00:17:02.040 --> 00:17:03.240
  • BUT LET ME TELL YOU,
  • 00:17:03.240 --> 00:17:04.160
  • IT SURE HELPS.
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:06.180
  • IF I WANT TO SERVE THE LORD,
  • 00:17:06.180 --> 00:17:07.180
  • I'D RATHER SERVE HIM
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:08.160
  • WITH ALL HIS POWER ON
  • 00:17:08.160 --> 00:17:09.120
  • DISPLAY THAN NOT.
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:11.060
  • I'M NOT GOING TO THROW ROCKS
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:15.100
  • AT ANYBODY EXCEPT
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:16.190
  • THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:17:16.190 --> 00:17:17.120
  • RELIGIOUS ONES.
  • 00:17:17.120 --> 00:17:19.030
  • YOU KNOW, JESUS DID THAT.
  • 00:17:19.030 --> 00:17:21.070
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:17:21.070 --> 00:17:21.170
  • IT WAS A BAD YEAR TO BE
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:22.160
  • A PHARISEE WHEN HE WALKED
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:23.110
  • THE EARTH.
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:25.080
  • I'M JUST SAYING.
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:26.130
  • BLESS THEIR HEARTS.
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:27.220
  • OKAY?
  • 00:17:27.220 --> 00:17:29.050
  • YOU KNOW, IN THE SOUTH AS LONG
  • 00:17:29.050 --> 00:17:30.020
  • AS YOU SAY BLESS THEIR HEARTS
  • 00:17:30.020 --> 00:17:31.250
  • AT THE END OF IT, IT'S OKAY.
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:32.260
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:34.040
  • THAT'S A JOKE.
  • 00:17:34.040 --> 00:17:34.270
  • IT'S NOT REALLY OKAY.
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:37.090
  • BUT WE JUST THINK IT IS IN
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:38.060
  • THE SOUTH AS LONG AS YOU SAY
  • 00:17:38.060 --> 00:17:39.070
  • BLESS THEIR HEARTS IT'S OKAY.
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:42.080
  • SO, STAY WITH ME HERE.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:43.240
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:17:43.240 --> 00:17:44.290
  • THE RESURRECTION IN THIS SEASON
  • 00:17:44.290 --> 00:17:46.160
  • WITH GREAT INTENSITY.
  • 00:17:46.160 --> 00:17:49.090
  • LOOK AT MATTHEW 22,
  • 00:17:54.050 --> 00:17:57.050
  • AND I'M GOING TO READ
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:58.070
  • A PASSAGE TO YOU
  • 00:17:58.070 --> 00:18:00.070
  • 'CAUSE WE NEED TO LAY
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:02.200
  • THIS AS A FOUNDATION
  • 00:18:02.200 --> 00:18:04.070
  • FOR THE LORD JESUS,
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:05.040
  • HIS TEACHING.
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:05.270
  • MATTHEW 22:23 BEGINS THIS WAY,
  • 00:18:05.270 --> 00:18:07.140
  • "ON THAT DAY, SOME SADDUCEES
  • 00:18:07.140 --> 00:18:08.240
  • WHO SAY THERE
  • 00:18:08.240 --> 00:18:10.060
  • IS NO RESURRECTION CAME TO HIM
  • 00:18:10.060 --> 00:18:12.000
  • AND QUESTIONED HIM SAYING,
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:13.050
  • TEACHER, MOSES SAID,"
  • 00:18:13.050 --> 00:18:15.060
  • SO THAT'S LIKE SAYING AROUND
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:16.260
  • HERE BILLY GRAHAM SAID,
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:21.150
  • "IF A MAN DIES HAVING
  • 00:18:21.150 --> 00:18:22.250
  • NO CHILDREN, HIS BROTHER
  • 00:18:22.250 --> 00:18:24.000
  • NEXT-OF-KIN SHALL MARRY
  • 00:18:24.000 --> 00:18:24.230
  • HIS WIFE AND RAISE UP
  • 00:18:24.230 --> 00:18:25.170
  • AN OFFSPRING TO HIS BROTHER.
  • 00:18:25.170 --> 00:18:27.090
  • NOW THERE WERE SEVEN BROTHERS
  • 00:18:27.090 --> 00:18:28.120
  • WITH US AND THE FIRST MARRIED
  • 00:18:28.120 --> 00:18:30.090
  • AND DIED AND HAVING
  • 00:18:30.090 --> 00:18:31.080
  • NO OFFSPRING LEFT HIS WIFE
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:32.010
  • TO HIS BROTHER.
  • 00:18:32.010 --> 00:18:33.030
  • SO, ALSO THE SECOND
  • 00:18:33.030 --> 00:18:34.200
  • AND THE THIRD DOWN
  • 00:18:34.200 --> 00:18:35.130
  • TO THE SEVENTH
  • 00:18:35.130 --> 00:18:36.030
  • AND LAST OF ALL THE WOMAN DIED.
  • 00:18:36.030 --> 00:18:37.160
  • IN THE RESURRECTION, THEREFORE,
  • 00:18:37.160 --> 00:18:39.130
  • WHOSE WIFE
  • 00:18:39.130 --> 00:18:40.060
  • OF THE SEVEN SHALL SHE BE?
  • 00:18:40.060 --> 00:18:42.180
  • FOR THEY ALL HAD HER.
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:43.210
  • BUT JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID
  • 00:18:43.210 --> 00:18:44.250
  • TO THEM, YOU ARE MISTAKEN.
  • 00:18:44.250 --> 00:18:46.000
  • NOT UNDERSTANDING, NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:49.110
  • THE SCRIPTURES, AND NUMBER TWO,
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:50.030
  • THE POWER OF GOD."
  • 00:18:50.030 --> 00:18:52.050
  • THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:53.110
  • THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:18:53.110 --> 00:18:54.020
  • OR THE POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:55.060
  • SO, IT SPEAKS TO US.
  • 00:18:55.060 --> 00:18:56.270
  • WE NEED TO BE SURE
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:57.160
  • WE ARE WORKING IN SUCH A WAY,
  • 00:18:57.160 --> 00:18:58.240
  • LIVING IN SUCH A WAY
  • 00:18:58.240 --> 00:19:00.050
  • THAT WE ARE GROWING
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:01.110
  • IN OUR UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:03.030
  • OF THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:19:03.030 --> 00:19:04.240
  • AND GROWING IN OUR UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:19:04.240 --> 00:19:06.010
  • OF THE POWER OF GOD
  • 00:19:06.010 --> 00:19:08.150
  • BECAUSE HE SAID TO
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:10.100
  • THESE SCHOLARS YOU
  • 00:19:10.100 --> 00:19:11.020
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND THE SCRIPTURES,
  • 00:19:11.020 --> 00:19:11.280
  • AND YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:12.220
  • THE POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:19:12.220 --> 00:19:14.260
  • NOW, SO MUCH OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:19:14.260 --> 00:19:16.090
  • IS ASLEEP 'CAUSE THEY THINK
  • 00:19:16.090 --> 00:19:17.240
  • THEY KNOW AND UNDERSTAND
  • 00:19:17.240 --> 00:19:19.270
  • THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:19:19.270 --> 00:19:21.200
  • AND THINK THEY KNOW
  • 00:19:21.200 --> 00:19:22.230
  • AND UNDERSTAND
  • 00:19:22.230 --> 00:19:24.000
  • THAT GOD IS OMNIPOTENT,
  • 00:19:24.000 --> 00:19:26.060
  • THAT GOD IS OMNISCIENT,
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:28.270
  • THAT IS ALL-POWERFUL
  • 00:19:28.270 --> 00:19:29.290
  • AND ALL-KNOWING.
  • 00:19:29.290 --> 00:19:30.270
  • OKAY.
  • 00:19:30.270 --> 00:19:32.020
  • BUT THEY JUST DON'T KNOW
  • 00:19:32.020 --> 00:19:32.220
  • HIS POWER OR HIS WISDOM.
  • 00:19:32.220 --> 00:19:34.260
  • HE SAID TO THESE,
  • 00:19:34.260 --> 00:19:35.200
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:19:35.200 --> 00:19:36.140
  • THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:19:36.140 --> 00:19:37.100
  • OR THE POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:19:37.100 --> 00:19:39.020
  • I WOULD SUBMIT TO US
  • 00:19:39.020 --> 00:19:40.150
  • THAT WE ALL NEED TO GROW
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:41.250
  • IN UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:19:41.250 --> 00:19:42.180
  • OF THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:19:42.180 --> 00:19:43.200
  • AND GOD'S POWER.
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:45.190
  • AND THEN HE GOES ON TO TELL THEM
  • 00:19:45.190 --> 00:19:47.020
  • GOD'S NOT THE GOD OF THE DEAD.
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:49.020
  • HE'S THE GOD OF THE LIVING.
  • 00:19:49.020 --> 00:19:50.110
  • GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC,
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:51.080
  • AND JACOB.
  • 00:19:51.080 --> 00:19:52.100
  • HE IS THE GOD OF THE LIVING,
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:54.020
  • NOT OF THE DEAD.
  • 00:19:54.020 --> 00:19:55.150
  • THEY LACKED UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:57.150
  • SO, LET'S ASK THE LORD
  • 00:19:57.150 --> 00:19:58.190
  • TO GIVE US A GROWING
  • 00:19:58.190 --> 00:19:59.200
  • UNDERSTANDING OF HIS SCRIPTURES
  • 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:01.160
  • AND OF HIS POWER.
  • 00:20:01.160 --> 00:20:04.000
  • HE WANTS TO PUT HIS POWER
  • 00:20:04.000 --> 00:20:05.090
  • ON DISPLAY.
  • 00:20:05.090 --> 00:20:06.260
  • OKAY?
  • 00:20:06.260 --> 00:20:08.000
  • IF WE WERE ACTING
  • 00:20:08.000 --> 00:20:08.240
  • AND LIVING IN SUCH A WAY --
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:10.100
  • I'M CHALLENGING US,
  • 00:20:10.100 --> 00:20:11.080
  • I'M CHALLENGING ME.
  • 00:20:11.080 --> 00:20:12.280
  • IF WE'RE ACTING AND LIVING
  • 00:20:12.280 --> 00:20:13.170
  • IN SUCH A WAY
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:14.210
  • THAT THE SUPERNATURAL POWER
  • 00:20:14.210 --> 00:20:15.160
  • OF GOD IS NOT FOR RIGHT NOW
  • 00:20:15.160 --> 00:20:17.080
  • AND IN EACH OF OUR LIVES,
  • 00:20:17.080 --> 00:20:18.250
  • WE ARE NOT UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:20:18.250 --> 00:20:20.150
  • THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:20:20.150 --> 00:20:21.100
  • OR THE POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:20:22.280 --> 00:20:25.280
  • THEY WERE CHALLENGING HIM
  • 00:20:25.280 --> 00:20:26.260
  • SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:20:26.260 --> 00:20:28.100
  • CONVINCED THERE WAS
  • 00:20:28.100 --> 00:20:29.040
  • NO RESURRECTION.
  • 00:20:29.040 --> 00:20:32.020
  • NOW, MAYBE NOT ONE OF YOU HERE
  • 00:20:32.020 --> 00:20:33.190
  • OR NOT ONE PERSON
  • 00:20:33.190 --> 00:20:34.180
  • LISTENING TO ME,
  • 00:20:34.180 --> 00:20:36.000
  • MAYBE LET'S JUST SAY, PERHAPS,
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:38.110
  • NOT ONE PERSON STRUGGLES
  • 00:20:38.110 --> 00:20:40.140
  • AT ALL WITH THE IDEA
  • 00:20:40.140 --> 00:20:42.280
  • OF THE RESURRECTION.
  • 00:20:42.280 --> 00:20:45.060
  • I WOULD BET NOBODY AT LEAST
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:46.280
  • IN THIS AUDIENCE STRUGGLES
  • 00:20:46.280 --> 00:20:49.160
  • WITH THE IDEA THAT JESUS
  • 00:20:49.160 --> 00:20:51.010
  • ROSE FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:52.030
  • AND THE RESURRECTION.
  • 00:20:52.160 --> 00:20:55.160
  • OKAY?
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:57.130
  • COULD WE GRANT THAT?
  • 00:20:57.130 --> 00:20:59.290
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING,
  • 00:20:59.290 --> 00:21:01.070
  • RAISING FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:21:01.070 --> 00:21:02.240
  • IS A PRETTY WILD
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:04.100
  • SUPERNATURAL THING.
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:07.100
  • SO, YOU'VE ALL JUST ADMITTED
  • 00:21:07.100 --> 00:21:08.090
  • YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING
  • 00:21:08.090 --> 00:21:09.090
  • WILDLY SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:21:10.040 --> 00:21:13.040
  • SO IF GOD CAN DO THAT
  • 00:21:13.040 --> 00:21:13.280
  • WILD SUPERNATURAL THING,
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:15.240
  • WHY NOT OTHER MILD-MANNERED
  • 00:21:16.130 --> 00:21:19.130
  • SUPERNATURAL THINGS
  • 00:21:19.130 --> 00:21:21.080
  • LIKE HEALING A LEG
