  • WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE.
  • 00:02:35.278 --> 00:02:37.347
  • THERE AREN'T SEVENSPIRITS OF GOD LITERALLY,
  • 00:02:37.380 --> 00:02:40.516

  • 00:03:17.320 --> 00:03:19.856
  • OF THE KING JAMES.
  • 00:03:19.889 --> 00:03:21.357
  • I THINK IF YOU HAVEA KING JAMES BIBLE,
  • 00:03:21.391 --> 00:03:23.126
  • IT SAYS "THE BEASTS," ANDWE THINK ABOUT WILD ANIMALS.
  • 00:03:23.159 --> 00:03:27.263
  • THERE IS A WORD IN GREEKFOR BEASTS, THERION,
  • 00:03:27.297 --> 00:03:31.034
  • BUT THAT'S NOT THEWORD THAT IS USED HERE.
  • 00:03:31.067 --> 00:03:32.902
  • IT'S THE WORD, ZOON.
  • 00:03:32.935 --> 00:03:35.238
  • ZOON MEANS LIVING,A LIVING CREATURE.
  • 00:03:35.271 --> 00:03:37.940
  • IF WE TALK ABOUT THE ZOO,WE TALK ABOUT ZOOLOGY.
  • 00:03:37.974 --> 00:03:40.910
  • THIS IS THE WORD HERE,A LIVING CREATURE.
  • 00:03:40.943 --> 00:03:44.480
  • WHAT ABOUT THESELIVING CREATURES?
  • 00:03:44.514 --> 00:03:46.616

  • 00:03:46.649 --> 00:03:48.084
  • BEFORE WE CANIDENTIFY WHO THEY ARE,
  • 00:03:48.117 --> 00:03:50.753
  • WE HAVE TO SEE WHEREELSE WE FIND THEM
  • 00:03:50.787 --> 00:03:52.989
  • IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION,
  • 00:03:53.022 --> 00:03:54.257

  • THROUGHOUT THEBOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:03:57.627 --> 00:03:59.228
  • FIRST OF ALL, THEY ARE ALWAYSSURROUNDING GOD'S THRONE
  • 00:03:59.262 --> 00:04:02.899
  • AND IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TOCHRIST, THE LAMB OF GOD.
  • 00:04:02.932 --> 00:04:06.769
  • THAT MEANS THEIR PRIMARYFUNCTION IS TO SERVE
  • 00:04:06.803 --> 00:04:09.639
  • AND WORSHIP THE LORD.
  • 00:04:09.672 --> 00:04:11.507
  • SECONDLY, THEY POSSESS SIXWINGS AND ARE FULL OF EYES.
  • 00:04:11.541 --> 00:04:16.112
  • THE WINGS DESCRIBE THEIR ABILITY
  • 00:04:16.145 --> 00:04:20.550
  • TO SWIFTLY CARRY OUTTHE JUDGMENTS OF GOD.
  • 00:04:20.583 --> 00:04:24.220
  • THEIR EYES MEAN THATTHEY ARE VERY AWARE
  • 00:04:24.253 --> 00:04:26.189
  • OF WHAT IS TAKING PLACE.
  • 00:04:26.222 --> 00:04:28.191
  • THIRD, THEY ARE CONSTANTLYENGAGED IN THE PRAISE
  • 00:04:28.224 --> 00:04:31.728
  • AND THE WORSHIP OF GOD.

  • FOURTH, IT IS THESE LIVINGCREATURES, ONE OF THEM,

  • THAT INVITES JOHN TOOBSERVE THE WRATH OF GOD

  • IN REVELATION CHAPTER SIX.
  • 00:04:44.607 --> 00:04:47.577
  • AND IT'S ALSO ONEOF THESE CREATURES,
  • 00:04:47.610 --> 00:04:49.746
  • LIVING BEINGS, THAT HANDSOVER TO JOHN THE BOWL,
  • 00:04:49.779 --> 00:04:53.316
  • OR HANDS OVER THE BOWLS FULLOF WRATH TO THE SEVEN ANGELS
  • 00:04:53.349 --> 00:04:57.620
  • WHO POUR OUT GOD'S WRATH ONTHE EARTH, REVELATION 15:7.
  • 00:04:57.653 --> 00:05:01.958
  • I THINK WHEN YOU PUTALL OF THIS TOGETHER,
  • 00:05:01.991 --> 00:05:03.593
  • THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THESECREATURES IS THEY ARE ANGELS.
  • 00:05:03.626 --> 00:05:07.530
  • AND PROBABLY SPECIFICALLYEITHER THE SERAPHIM

  • THAT ISAIAH SAW IN ISAIAHCHAPTER SIX, OR MORE LIKELY,
  • 00:05:11.701 --> 00:05:15.204
  • THE CHERUBIM THAT AREFOUND IN EZEKIEL 1.
  • 00:05:15.238 --> 00:05:19.275
  • YOU KNOW, CHERUBIM ISTHE PLURAL OF CHERUB.
  • 00:05:19.308 --> 00:05:22.545
  • IT MEANS GUARDIAN,
  • 00:05:22.578 --> 00:05:25.515
  • DENOTING THEIR PROTECTIVENATURE OF THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:05:25.548 --> 00:05:30.219
  • YOU REMEMBER, IT WAS ANIMAGE OF THE CHERUBIM

  • THAT WERE SEWN INTO THE VEIL
  • 00:05:33.189 --> 00:05:35.625
  • THAT SEPARATED THE HOLY PLACEFROM THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 00:05:35.658 --> 00:05:38.961
  • REMEMBER IN THE ARK OF THECOVENANT WE'VE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:05:38.995 --> 00:05:41.798
  • ON TOP OF THAT ARKWAS THE MERCY SEAT.
  • 00:05:41.831 --> 00:05:44.734
  • AND ON TOP OF THEMERCY SEAT ON EACH END
  • 00:05:44.767 --> 00:05:47.470
  • WAS A REPLICA OF A CHERUB.
  • 00:05:47.503 --> 00:05:50.206
  • TWO CHERUBS, THECHERUBIM WITH THEIR WINGS
  • 00:05:50.239 --> 00:05:54.243
  • TOUCHING ONE ANOTHER, ANDIT WAS THOUGHT THAT GOD
  • 00:05:54.277 --> 00:05:56.512

  • 00:06:08.124 --> 00:06:10.893
  • YOU KNOW, WE HAVE LADYJUSTICE WHO IS BLINDFOLDED.
  • 00:06:10.927 --> 00:06:14.163

  • AND THE THIRD CREATURE HADTHE FACE OF THAT OF A MAN,
  • 00:06:31.981 --> 00:06:35.084
  • AND THE FOURTH CREATUREWAS LIKE A FLYING EAGLE."
  • 00:06:35.117 --> 00:06:38.154
  • WHAT ARE WE TO MAKEOF THESE FOUR FACES
  • 00:06:38.187 --> 00:06:40.423
  • OF THESE FOUR LIVING BEINGS?
  • 00:06:40.456 --> 00:06:42.959
  • WILLIAM BARCLAY, THE NEWTESTAMENT SCHOLAR, SAYS,
  • 00:06:42.992 --> 00:06:45.528
  • "THESE FOUR LIVING CREATURESREPRESENT THE GREATNESS
  • 00:06:45.561 --> 00:06:49.432
  • AND THE STRENGTHOF ALL OF NATURE."
  • 00:06:49.465 --> 00:06:52.869

  • OF ALL OF GOD'S CREATION.
  • 00:06:56.239 --> 00:06:58.407
  • LET'S BREAK THATDOWN FOR A MOMENT.
  • 00:06:58.441 --> 00:07:00.042
  • THE LION IS SUPREME, FOREXAMPLE, AMONG WILD BEASTS,
  • 00:07:00.076 --> 00:07:03.513
  • AND THEREFORE REPRESENTSNOBILITY OR STRENGTH.
  • 00:07:03.546 --> 00:07:07.383
  • THE CALF OR THE OX IS SUPREMEAMONG THE DOMESTIC ANIMALS
  • 00:07:07.416 --> 00:07:11.354

  • 00:07:11.387 --> 00:07:14.223
  • THE MAN IS SUPREMEOF ALL CREATION
  • 00:07:14.257 --> 00:07:16.692
  • AND REPRESENTSINTELLIGENCE OR WISDOM.
  • 00:07:16.726 --> 00:07:19.729
  • THE EAGLE IS SUPREMEOF ALL FLYING CREATURES
  • 00:07:19.762 --> 00:07:22.498
  • AND REPRESENTS SWIFTNESS.
  • 00:07:22.532 --> 00:07:25.268
  • THE PICTURE WE SEEHERE IS OF ALL CREATION
  • 00:07:25.301 --> 00:07:28.871
  • IN THESE FOUR LIVING BEINGS,BOWING DOWN AND WORSHIPING GOD.
  • 00:07:28.905 --> 00:07:33.609
  • BUT IN ADDITION TOALL OF CREATION,
  • 00:07:33.643 --> 00:07:36.312
  • THE 24 ELDERS REPRESENT ASPECIAL SUBSET OF THAT CREATION,
  • 00:07:36.345 --> 00:07:41.250
  • THOSE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCEDGOD'S REDEMPTION
  • 00:07:41.284 --> 00:07:44.086
  • THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.

  • ALL OF CREATION, BUTESPECIALLY THE REDEEMED,
  • 00:07:45.922 --> 00:07:49.358
  • WILL BE BOWING DOWNBEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:07:49.392 --> 00:07:53.296
  • AND WHAT WILL THEY BE DOING?
  • 00:07:53.329 --> 00:07:55.197
  • THE ANGELS WILL BE SAYING,
  • 00:07:55.231 --> 00:07:56.966
  • THE REDEEMED WILL BE SINGINGTHE HYMN OF CREATION.

  • 00:08:32.768 --> 00:08:35.838
  • AND DAY AND NIGHT THEYDO NOT CEASE TO SAY,"

  • NOTICE, "SAY, 'HOLY, HOLY,HOLY IS THE LORD GOD,
  • 00:08:39.442 --> 00:08:46.215

  • WILL YOU NOTICE THETHREE ATTRIBUTES OF GOD,
  • 00:08:52.388 --> 00:08:55.224
  • FOR WHICH THESE LIVINGCREATURES PRAISE HIM?
  • 00:08:55.257 --> 00:08:58.628
  • FIRST OF ALL, THEY PRAISEHIM FOR HIS HOLINESS.
  • 00:08:58.661 --> 00:09:02.598
  • HOLY, HOLY, HOLY.
  • 00:09:02.632 --> 00:09:05.267
  • YOU KNOW, IN THE GREEK LANGUAGEAND THE HEBREW LANGUAGE,
  • 00:09:05.301 --> 00:09:08.104
  • THERE WERE NOEXPLANATION POINTS.
  • 00:09:08.137 --> 00:09:10.506
  • IF YOU WANTED TOEMPHASIZE SOMETHING,
  • 00:09:10.539 --> 00:09:12.742
  • YOU COULDN'T USE ANEXPLANATION POINT.
  • 00:09:12.775 --> 00:09:14.443
  • THE WAY YOU EMPHASIZESOMETHING WAS TO REPEAT IT.
  • 00:09:14.477 --> 00:09:17.913
  • WHEN SOMETHING IS REPEATED,
  • 00:09:17.947 --> 00:09:19.181
  • IT MEANS THIS ISESPECIALLY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:09:19.215 --> 00:09:23.252
  • AND WHEN YOU COME TO THEATTRIBUTES OF GOD, WHO GOD IS,
  • 00:09:23.285 --> 00:09:29.425
  • IT'S INTERESTING,NOWHERE IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:29.458 --> 00:09:30.693
  • IS GOD EVER CALLEDLOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
  • 00:09:30.726 --> 00:09:36.499
  • NOW, LOVE'S AN IMPORTANTATTRIBUTE OF GOD.
  • 00:09:36.532 --> 00:09:38.834
  • GOD IS LOVE, MAKENO MISTAKE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:09:38.868 --> 00:09:41.937
  • BUT NOWHERE IN THE SCRIPTURESAYS GOD IS LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
  • 00:09:41.971 --> 00:09:45.641
  • GOD IS JUST, HE'SA VERY JUST GOD,
  • 00:09:45.675 --> 00:09:48.344
  • BUT NOWHERE IN SCRIPTURE DOYOU EVER FIND JUST, JUST, JUST.
  • 00:09:48.377 --> 00:09:54.684
  • THE ONLY ATTRIBUTE OF GODTHAT IS REPEATED IS HOLY.
  • 00:09:54.717 --> 00:09:58.521
  • HOLY, HOLY, HOLY.
  • 00:09:58.554 --> 00:10:02.858
  • THAT WORD, HOLY, COMESFROM A HEBREW WORD
  • 00:10:02.892 --> 00:10:05.895
  • THAT MEANS TO CUTOR TO SEPARATE.
  • 00:10:05.928 --> 00:10:09.799
  • WHEN WE SAY GOD IS HOLY, WEARE SAYING HE IS A CUT ABOVE.
  • 00:10:09.832 --> 00:10:14.336
  • HE IS SEPARATE FROM ANY ONE
  • 00:10:14.370 --> 00:10:16.172
  • OR ANYTHING ELSEIN THIS UNIVERSE.
  • 00:10:16.205 --> 00:10:18.974
  • AND THAT'S WHY HE ISDESERVING OF OUR WORSHIP.
  • 00:10:19.008 --> 00:10:22.078
  • HOLY, HOLY, HOLY.
  • 00:10:22.111 --> 00:10:24.680
  • THE SECOND ATTRIBUTE FORWHICH THE ANGELS PRAISE GOD
  • 00:10:24.714 --> 00:10:27.950
  • IS HIS OMNIPOTENCE.
  • 00:10:27.983 --> 00:10:30.486
  • GOD, THE ALMIGHTY.
  • 00:10:30.519 --> 00:10:31.787
  • THE WORD OMNIPOTENCEMEANS ALL POWERFUL.
  • 00:10:31.821 --> 00:10:36.425
  • GOD HAS THE POWER TO DOANYTHING ANYTIME HE WANTS
  • 00:10:36.459 --> 00:10:40.396
  • IN THIS UNIVERSE ANDIN YOUR LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:10:40.429 --> 00:10:43.632
  • THERE'S NO PROBLEM YOU'REFACING THIS MORNING
  • 00:10:43.666 --> 00:10:45.968
  • THAT HE IS NOTCAPABLE OF SOLVING.
  • 00:10:46.001 --> 00:10:48.738
  • PETER KREEFT SUMMED UPTHE POWER OF GOD THIS WAY:
  • 00:10:48.771 --> 00:10:51.974
  • "GOD HAS MORE POWER INONE BREATH OF HIS SPIRIT
  • 00:10:52.007 --> 00:10:55.678
  • THAN ALL THE WINDS OF WAR,ALL THE NUCLEAR BOMBS,
  • 00:10:55.711 --> 00:10:59.081
  • ALL THE ENERGY OF ALL THESUNS IN ALL THE GALAXIES,
  • 00:10:59.115 --> 00:11:02.118
  • ALL THE FURY OF HELL ITSELF."
  • 00:11:02.151 --> 00:11:04.587
  • AREN'T YOU GLAD WE SERVE ANALMIGHTY, AND ALL-POWERFUL GOD?
  • 00:11:04.620 --> 00:11:09.525
  • AND THEN THIRDLY, THE ANGELSPRAISE HIM FOR HIS ETERNALITY.
  • 00:11:09.558 --> 00:11:13.829
  • HOLY, HOLY, HOLY ISTHE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY,
  • 00:11:13.863 --> 00:11:16.432
  • WHO WAS, WHO IS,AND WHO IS TO COME.
  • 00:11:16.465 --> 00:11:20.936
  • REMEMBER WHEN MOSES STOODBEFORE THE BURNING BUSH
  • 00:11:20.970 --> 00:11:24.707
  • AND GOD SPOKE TO HIM ANDTOLD HIM TO GO TO PHARAOH
  • 00:11:24.740 --> 00:11:27.376
  • TO COMMAND HIM TOLET THE PEOPLE GO,
  • 00:11:27.409 --> 00:11:29.612
  • AND MOSES SAID, YOU'VEGOTTA BE KIDDING?
  • 00:11:29.645 --> 00:11:33.015
  • I'M GOING TO GO TO PHARAOHAND TELL HIM THAT?
  • 00:11:33.048 --> 00:11:35.684
  • WHO SHOULD I SAY SENTME ON THIS MISSION?
  • 00:11:35.718 --> 00:11:39.989
  • REMEMBER WHAT GOD SAID?
  • 00:11:40.022 --> 00:11:41.824
  • YOU JUST TELL HIM I AM SENT YOU.
  • 00:11:41.857 --> 00:11:45.461
  • I AM.
  • 00:11:45.494 --> 00:11:47.696
  • THAT'S GOD'S MOSTSACRED NAME, YAHWEH.
  • 00:11:47.730 --> 00:11:50.633
  • "I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM,ISAAC, AND JACOB," HE SAID.
  • 00:11:50.666 --> 00:11:55.271
  • THEY'D BEEN DEAD FOR HUNDREDSOF YEARS, BUT GOD ISN'T DEAD.
  • 00:11:55.304 --> 00:11:59.108
  • HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,TODAY, AND FOREVER.
  • 00:11:59.141 --> 00:12:03.045
  • THAT'S HOW THE ANGELSWILL PRAISE HIM.
  • 00:12:03.078 --> 00:12:06.415
  • AND THEN YOU AND I ARE GOINGTO JOIN IN THAT PRAISE.
  • 00:12:06.448 --> 00:12:09.251
  • LOOK AT VERSES 9 TO 11.
  • 00:12:09.285 --> 00:12:11.253
  • THE PRAISE OF THE 24ELDERS, THAT'S YOU AND ME.
  • 00:12:11.287 --> 00:12:14.990
  • "AND WHEN THE LIVINGCREATURES GIVE GLORY AND HONOR
  • 00:12:15.024 --> 00:12:17.693
  • AND THANKS TO HIM WHOSITS ON THE THRONE,
  • 00:12:17.726 --> 00:12:19.862
  • TO HIM WHO LIVESFOREVER AND EVER,
  • 00:12:19.895 --> 00:12:22.231
  • THE 24 ELDERS WILLFALL DOWN BEFORE HIM
  • 00:12:22.264 --> 00:12:25.334
  • WHO SITS ON THE THRONE,
  • 00:12:25.367 --> 00:12:26.735
  • AND WILL WORSHIP HIM WHOLIVES FOREVER AND EVER,
  • 00:12:26.769 --> 00:12:29.738
  • AND WILL CAST THEIRCROWNS BEFORE THE THRONE."
  • 00:12:29.772 --> 00:12:35.344
  • THOSE VICTOR CROWNSTHAT WE RECEIVE
  • 00:12:35.377 --> 00:12:37.847
  • AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST,
  • 00:12:37.880 --> 00:12:39.849
  • WE'RE GOING TO CAST THEMBEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD.
  • 00:12:39.882 --> 00:12:43.319
  • NOW SOME PEOPLEMISINTERPRET THAT.
  • 00:12:43.352 --> 00:12:45.254
  • THEY SAY, WELL, THAT'S WHYREWARDS REALLY DON'T MATTER.
  • 00:12:45.287 --> 00:12:47.489
  • I DON'T NEED TO WORRYABOUT REWARDS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:12:47.523 --> 00:12:49.458
  • AFTER ALL, WE'RE JUSTGOING TO CAST THEM ALL
  • 00:12:49.491 --> 00:12:51.794
  • BEFORE THE THRONE OFGOD ANYWAY, RIGHT?
  • 00:12:51.827 --> 00:12:54.563
  • THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TOKNOW SOMETHING ABOUT HISTORY.
  • 00:12:54.597 --> 00:12:58.033
  • THIS STEPHANOS,THE VICTOR'S CROWN,
  • 00:12:58.067 --> 00:13:00.102
  • IT WAS GIVEN BY THEROMAN GOVERNMENT
  • 00:13:00.135 --> 00:13:02.438
  • TO, SAY, A GENERAL WHOSUCCEEDED IN VICTORY
  • 00:13:02.471 --> 00:13:05.541
  • OR AN ATHLETE WHO WON THE PRIZE.
  • 00:13:05.574 --> 00:13:08.611
  • THAT CROWN WAS SYMBOLICOF VERY REAL REWARDS.
  • 00:13:08.644 --> 00:13:12.014
  • AND YES, IF THEGENERAL OR THE ATHLETE
  • 00:13:12.047 --> 00:13:15.584
  • WANTED TO CAST THE CROWNAT THE FEET OF THE EMPEROR,
  • 00:13:15.618 --> 00:13:18.654
  • THAT WAS FINE, BUT HE STILLRETAINED THE PRIVILEGES
  • 00:13:18.687 --> 00:13:21.991
  • AND REWARDS THAT THATCROWN REPRESENTED.
  • 00:13:22.024 --> 00:13:25.094

  • WE VERY WELL ARE GOING TO CASTOUR CROWNS BEFORE THE THRONE.
  • 00:13:46.515 --> 00:13:50.886
  • DOESN'T MEAN WEGIVE UP OUR REWARDS.
  • 00:13:50.920 --> 00:13:53.022
  • IT MEANS THAT WE ACKNOWLEDGE
  • 00:13:53.055 --> 00:13:55.624
  • THAT EVEN OUR ABILITY TOEARN A REWARD IN THIS LIFE
  • 00:13:55.658 --> 00:13:59.128
  • IS A RESULT OF THE GRACE OF GOD.
  • 00:13:59.161 --> 00:14:02.031
  • EVERYTHING IN OUR LIFE,

  • COMES FROM GOD.
  • 00:14:06.502 --> 00:14:07.703
  • AND THAT'S THE BASIS OFTHE CASTING OF CROWNS.
  • 00:14:07.736 --> 00:14:11.140
  • LOOK AT WHAT WE SAY.
  • 00:14:11.173 --> 00:14:12.641
  • "WE WILL CAST OUR CROWNSBEFORE THE THRONE SAYING,"
  • 00:14:12.675 --> 00:14:15.511
  • LOOK AT THIS, "WORTHY ARTTHOU, OUR LORD AND OUR GOD,
  • 00:14:15.544 --> 00:14:21.650
  • TO RECEIVE HONORAND GLORY AND POWER,
  • 00:14:21.684 --> 00:14:24.453
  • FOR THOU DIDSTCREATE ALL THINGS,
  • 00:14:24.486 --> 00:14:26.789
  • AND BECAUSE OF THY WILL THEYEXISTED AND WERE CREATED."
  • 00:14:26.822 --> 00:14:32.895
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE ARECOGNITION ON THAT DAY
  • 00:14:32.928 --> 00:14:34.530
  • WHEN WE STAND BEFORE GOD THATEVERYTHING IN THIS UNIVERSE,
  • 00:14:34.563 --> 00:14:38.901
  • INCLUDING OUR OWN LIFE,IS A GIFT FROM GOD.
  • 00:14:38.934 --> 00:14:42.738
  • AND THAT IS GOING TO BE THEBASIS OF OUR WORSHIP.
  • 00:14:42.771 --> 00:14:46.875
  • THE BIBLE SAYS ITALL BELONGS TO GOD.
  • 00:14:46.909 --> 00:14:50.346
  • ABRAHAM COOPER, THE GREATDUTCH THINKER, ONCE SAID,
  • 00:14:50.379 --> 00:14:53.549
  • "THERE IS NOT ONEINCH OF THIS UNIVERSE
  • 00:14:53.582 --> 00:14:56.652
  • OVER WHICH JESUS CHRIST DOESNOT DECLARE, THIS IS MINE.
  • 00:14:56.685 --> 00:15:02.257
  • THIS BELONGS TO ME."
  • 00:15:02.291 --> 00:15:03.859
  • EVERY PART OF THIS UNIVERSEBELONGS TO HIM WHO CREATED IT.
  • 00:15:03.892 --> 00:15:08.330
  • HE IS SOVEREIGN OVER ALL ANDHE IS SOVEREIGN OVER YOUR LIFE
  • 00:15:08.364 --> 00:15:14.069
  • AND OVER MY LIFE.
  • 00:15:14.103 --> 00:15:16.005
  • THERE IS NOT ONE HIDDENPART OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:15:16.038 --> 00:15:19.875
  • THAT YOU HAVE A RIGHTTO SAY, THIS IS MINE.

  • GOD, YOU CAN HAVEEVERY OTHER PART OF IT,
  • 00:15:23.479 --> 00:15:25.781
  • BUT THIS BELONGS TO ME.
  • 00:15:25.814 --> 00:15:28.017
  • NO.
  • 00:15:28.050 --> 00:15:29.084
  • WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN ONE DAY
  • 00:15:29.118 --> 00:15:30.686
  • WE'LL UNDERSTANDLIKE NEVER BEFORE
  • 00:15:30.719 --> 00:15:32.654

  • HE IS THE ONE WHOHAS MADE IT ALL.
  • 00:15:35.457 --> 00:15:37.626
  • REMEMBER WHAT THE PSALMISTSAID IN PSALM 100:3?
  • 00:15:37.659 --> 00:15:40.763
  • "KNOW THIS, THAT GODHIMSELF, HE IS LORD.

  • IT IS HE WHO MADE USAND NOT WE OURSELVES,
  • 00:15:47.069 --> 00:15:49.772
  • FOR WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, WE ARETHE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE."
  • 00:15:49.805 --> 00:15:54.777
  • AND WE WILL UNDERSTANDTHAT LIKE NEVER BEFORE,
