  • THAT'S WHAT THE ENEMY DOES NOT WANT YOU TO

  • KNOW, THAT THE MOMENT THE BLOOD OF JESUS HITS YOUR
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:55.140

  • THANKS FOR BEING A PART OF JOHN GRAY'S WORLD.
  • 00:02:32.290 --> 00:02:36.030
  • THE THING I LOVE ABOUT DAVID IS DAVID DIDN'T
  • 00:02:36.200 --> 00:02:38.010
  • TREAT PEOPLE THE WAY PEOPLE WERE TREATING HIM.
  • 00:02:38.030 --> 00:02:43.010
  • LET ME TAKE A BLACK VOTE, I KNOW THAT'S RIGHT!
  • 00:02:43.030 --> 00:02:45.160
  • WOULD YOU CALM DOWN IN HERE.
  • 00:02:45.180 --> 00:02:47.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:50.140
  • DAVID DID NOT HAVE A HEART TO BE OVERLY AMBITIOUS.
  • 00:02:50.160 --> 00:02:56.120
  • I WANT YOU TO TRAVEL WITH ME 1 SAMUEL 24 VERSE 1.
  • 00:02:56.140 --> 00:03:03.180
  • [READING]
  • 00:03:03.200 --> 00:03:14.190
  • NOW HOLD ON, DAVID IS ONE MAN.
  • 00:03:14.210 --> 00:03:19.200
  • HOW INSECURE ARE YOU TO TAKE 3.000 MEN INTO THE
  • 00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:28.090
  • WOODS TO LOOK FOR THIS MAN.
  • 00:03:28.110 --> 00:03:31.140
  • SOMEBODY GOT TO KILL HIM. FIND HIM!
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:36.140
  • YOU BETTER LIFT THAT LOG.
  • 00:03:36.160 --> 00:03:37.290
  • SOMEBODY FIND HIM IN THESE WOODS.
  • 00:03:38.010 --> 00:03:40.060
  • SIR, IT'S AN ARMADILLO.
  • 00:03:40.080 --> 00:03:41.130
  • I DON'T CARE, KILL IT TOO.
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:42.170
  • KILL EVERYTHING IN HERE. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:03:42.190 --> 00:03:45.130
  • COOK IT. PUT SOME BARBECUE SAUCE ON IT.
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:49.190
  • IT WAS FROM SOUTH CENTRAL ISRAEL.
  • 00:03:49.210 --> 00:03:52.070
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:58.120
  • [READING]
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:11.280
  • [READING]
  • 00:04:11.280 --> 00:04:24.280
  • [READING]
  • 00:04:24.280 --> 00:04:37.280
  • [READING]
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:50.280
  • [READING]
  • 00:04:50.280 --> 00:05:02.010
  • BLIND AMBITION.
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:05.020
  • DAVID HAD BEEN CHASED THROUGH THE WOODS.
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:09.020
  • CHASED BY A MAN WHOM HE CALLED FATHER,
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:12.250
  • MASTER AND KING.
  • 00:05:12.270 --> 00:05:15.190
  • HOW DYSFUNCTIONAL A HOME DID DAVID COME FROM THAT
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:19.150
  • EVEN THE MEN THAT TRIED TO KILL HIM
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:21.040
  • HE STILL CALLED DAD.
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:23.170
  • NOW HIDING IN A CAVE FROM THE VERY MAN THAT'S
  • 00:05:23.190 --> 00:05:27.170
  • TRYING TO TAKE HIM OUT, HERE LESS THAN A STONE'S
  • 00:05:27.190 --> 00:05:32.290
  • THROW AWAY IS THE ONE THAT'S BEEN CAUSING ALL
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:36.170
  • MY PAIN. I'VE ALREADY BEEN ANOINTED AS THE NEXT
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:40.190
  • KING. I CAN SEE THE THRONE FROM HERE.
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:45.210
  • IF I TAKE HIM OUT, EVERYBODY OUTSIDE IS
  • 00:05:45.230 --> 00:05:48.190
  • GONNA BOW DOWN TO ME, AND ALL THESE MEN DON'T HAVE
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:51.090
  • TO RUN ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:51.110 --> 00:05:54.050
  • BUT NOTICE THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT HIS MEN SAID
  • 00:05:54.070 --> 00:05:59.010
  • HEY, THIS IS THE MOMENT THE LORD SAID TO YOU I'M
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:01.200
  • GONNA DELIVER YOUR ENEMY INTO YOUR HANDS FOR YOU
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:04.250
  • TO DO WHAT SEEMS BEST TO YOU.
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:10.140
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT GOD PUT SAUL IN THAT CAVE
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:14.190
  • TO SEE IF SAUL HAD GOTTEN INTO DAVID.
  • 00:06:14.210 --> 00:06:23.210
  • HAD THE PAIN OF REJECTION, HAD THE LOSS
  • 00:06:23.230 --> 00:06:28.220
  • OF HIS FREEDOM, HAD THE PAIN THAT HE HAD ENDURED
  • 00:06:28.240 --> 00:06:32.140
  • CAUSED HIS HEART TO CHANGE, GOD WANTED TO SEE
  • 00:06:32.160 --> 00:06:37.170
  • DAVID, HAVE YOU LEARNED ANYTHING ABOUT WHO I AM?
  • 00:06:37.190 --> 00:06:41.260
  • I'M GONNA GIVE YOU YOUR ENEMY TO SEE WHAT YOU DO.
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:46.130
  • AND HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, JESUS SAID I KNOW IT
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:49.290
  • SAYS EYE FOR EYE AND TOOTH FOR A TOOTH, BUT I'M TELLING
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:52.080
  • YOU, HEY, PRAY FOR YOUR ENEMY, BLESS THOSE WHO
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:55.200
  • CURSE YOU, PRAY FOR THOSE WHO SPITEFULLY USE YOU.
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:07:00.170
  • NO! I DON'T LIKE THAT SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:07:00.190 --> 00:07:04.230
  • I DON'T WANT TO OBEY THAT ONE.
  • 00:07:04.250 --> 00:07:06.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.110
  • DIDN'T YOU MEAN SMACK THOSE WHO CURSE YOU?
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:12.140
  • KICK THOSE WHO SPITEFULLY USE YOU?
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:17.010
  • THEY CUT ME OFF IN TRAFFIC, SPEED UP,
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:18.130
  • CUT THEM OFF!
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:19.170
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS WOULD DO!
  • 00:07:19.190 --> 00:07:21.030
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:26.130
  • JESUS SAID I'M DEVELOPING YOUR CHARACTER
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:28.060
  • FOR THE LONG TERM.
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:30.100
  • HERE IS THE ONE THAT HAS BROUGHT YOU THE MOST
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:34.040
  • PAIN, AND IF YOU CAN BLESS THEM,
  • 00:07:34.060 --> 00:07:37.010
  • YOU CAN DO ANYTHING.
  • 00:07:37.030 --> 00:07:40.060
  • DAVID CUT OFF THE CORNER OF SAUL'S ROBE
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:44.250
  • AND IT BOTHERED HIM.
  • 00:07:44.270 --> 00:07:49.110
  • HE DIDN'T PUNCH HIM OR THROW A ROCK AND BUST HIM
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:51.140
  • IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND HIDE.
  • 00:07:51.160 --> 00:07:54.040
  • AT LEAST HIT HIM WITH A ROCK.
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:55.120
  • WE KNOW YOU GOOD WITH A SLING. BOOM!
  • 00:07:55.140 --> 00:07:58.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:07:58.190 --> 00:08:05.080
  • SAYS HE WAS TROUBLED IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:08:05.100 --> 00:08:12.000
  • SO MANY PEOPLE STRUGGLE WITH AMBITION BECAUSE
  • 00:08:12.020 --> 00:08:13.280
  • AMBITION IS NOT ABOUT THE POSITION.
  • 00:08:14.000 --> 00:08:17.060
  • IT'S A HEART CONDITION.
  • 00:08:17.080 --> 00:08:20.280
  • AMBITION IS A HEART CONDITION.
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:23.010
  • WHEN YOU WANT TO MINIMIZE SOMEBODY ELSE TO MAXIMIZE
  • 00:08:23.030 --> 00:08:25.070
  • YOURSELF, THAT'S A HEART CONDITION.
  • 00:08:25.090 --> 00:08:27.210
  • WHEN YOU CAN'T FIND ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY
  • 00:08:27.230 --> 00:08:29.250
  • ABOUT SOMEBODY, THAT'S A HEART CONDITION.
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:33.060
  • WHEN YOU WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO CELEBRATE YOU
  • 00:08:33.080 --> 00:08:35.240
  • OVER THE EXPENSE OR AT THE EXPENSE OF SOMEONE
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:38.100
  • ELSE, THAT'S A HEART CONDITION.
  • 00:08:38.120 --> 00:08:42.000
  • WHAT GOD WAS TESTING IN DAVID'S HEART IN THAT
  • 00:08:42.020 --> 00:08:45.080
  • CAVE WAS WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO DO TO GET THE
  • 00:08:45.100 --> 00:08:49.040
  • THING THAT I PROMISED YOU?
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:53.020
  • ARE YOU WILLING TO TAKE IT INTO YOUR OWN HANDS OR
  • 00:08:53.040 --> 00:08:57.030
  • ARE YOU WILLING TO STEP BACK AND ALLOW THE
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:58.210
  • PROCESS TO WORK ITSELF OUT?
  • 00:08:58.230 --> 00:09:02.010
  • DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT EVEN THOUGH THEY MESS UP,
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:03.260
  • THEY'RE STILL MY ANOINTED?
  • 00:09:03.280 --> 00:09:06.120
  • WE THINK BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE HUMAN AND MAKE
  • 00:09:06.140 --> 00:09:11.080
  • MISTAKES THAT WE CAN VILIFY THEM, DESTROY
  • 00:09:11.100 --> 00:09:13.150
  • THEM, AND KICK THEM OUT FROM POSITION.
  • 00:09:13.170 --> 00:09:15.230
  • YOU MESSED UP AS MY SUPERVISOR, IT'S MY TURN
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:17.190
  • NOW. YOU AIN'T NO GOOD, IT'S MY TURN.
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:19.190
  • I NEED TO BE IN CHARGE OF THE FAMILY REUNION
  • 00:09:19.210 --> 00:09:21.150
  • COMMITTEE BECAUSE LAST YEAR YOU TOOK THE MONEY
  • 00:09:21.170 --> 00:09:23.230
  • AND YOU BOUGHT RED KOOL-AID INSTEAD OF GRAPE
  • 00:09:23.250 --> 00:09:26.070
  • KOOL-AID WHEN WE VOTED ON GRAPE KOOL-AID.
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:28.040
  • YOU KNOW GOOD AND WELL WE DON'T BE DRINKING
  • 00:09:28.060 --> 00:09:30.000
  • RED KOOL-AID NO MORE LIKE THAT.
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:32.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:38.010
  • THE FAMILY REUNION COMMITTEE, THAT'S GREAT!
  • 00:09:38.030 --> 00:09:43.260
  • AND SO ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT WE DO FOR
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:53.100
  • POWER, IT'S A POWER STRUGGLE, BUT THE POWER
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:56.110
  • STRUGGLE IS NOT A POWER STRUGGLE, IT'S A VALUE
  • 00:09:56.130 --> 00:09:58.280
  • STRUGGLE. WE WANT TO FEEL VALUE, WE WANT TO FEEL
  • 00:09:59.000 --> 00:10:02.010
  • VALIDATED, LIKE WE MATTER.
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:04.090
  • WE DON'T WANT TO BE INVISIBLE.
  • 00:10:04.110 --> 00:10:07.150
  • BUT GOD SAYS IT'S THAT INVISIBILITY THAT CAUSES
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:11.020
  • ME TO DO THE FINAL DETAILED WORK ON YOUR
  • 00:10:11.040 --> 00:10:16.030
  • CHARACTER SO THAT WHEN YOU ARE VISIBLE, YOU
  • 00:10:16.050 --> 00:10:18.110
  • DON'T HAVE TO COME BACK IN HERE FOR SURGERY LATER.
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:21.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:10:21.180 --> 00:10:24.110
  • TOO MANY PEOPLE WHO WANT LEADERSHIP POSITIONS GET
  • 00:10:24.130 --> 00:10:26.240
  • THEM AND DON'T HAVE THE REQUISITE CHARACTER TO
  • 00:10:26.260 --> 00:10:29.010
  • KEEP THEM WHERE THE POSITION HAS TAKEN THEM.

  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:15.190
  • WHEN I'M DONE HE'S GONNA GIVE IT TO ME.
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:17.100
  • IT WASN'T YOURS IN THE FIRST PLACE!
  • 00:12:17.120 --> 00:12:20.270

  • DON'T ALLOW AMBITION TO DERAIL YOUR CHARACTER.
  • 00:12:25.000 --> 00:12:30.000
  • DAVID WAS A MAN AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART BECAUSE
  • 00:12:30.020 --> 00:12:32.100
  • HE WOULD NOT ALLOW AMBITION FOR THE POSITION
  • 00:12:32.120 --> 00:12:35.140
  • THAT GOD PROMISED HIM TO CAUSE HIM TO RUN OVER
  • 00:12:35.160 --> 00:12:38.040
  • PEOPLE TO GET IT.
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:41.040
  • SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD THEIR HEARTS BROKE, SO
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:43.240
  • MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD ISSUES THAT IT'S HARD TO
  • 00:12:43.260 --> 00:12:46.060
  • RECOVER FROM BECAUSE OF UNDUE AMBITION.
  • 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:50.200
  • WHEN YOU TAKE MATTERS INTO YOUR OWN HANDS.
  • 00:12:50.220 --> 00:12:54.050
  • AND HERE'S THE POWER OF DAVID IN THAT CAVE.
  • 00:12:54.070 --> 00:12:57.130
  • YOU READ IT ON YOUR OWN, BUT HE WENT OUT LATER AND
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:12:59.220
  • SAID KING, WHY WOULD YOU EVEN COME AFTER
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:01.280
  • A LITTLE FLEA LIKE ME?
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:03.160
  • I DON'T DESERVE FOR YOU TO EVEN BE WORRIED ABOUT
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:06.270
  • ME. BUT LET GOD JUDGE BETWEEN YOU AND ME.
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:09.150

  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:16.250
  • LOOK HOW BROKEN HE WAS.
  • 00:13:16.270 --> 00:13:18.240
  • HE KNEW IN THAT MOMENT HE DOESN'T MEAN ME ANY HARM.
  • 00:13:18.260 --> 00:13:22.280
  • AND HE SAID NOW I KNOW GOD'S GONNA
  • 00:13:23.000 --> 00:13:25.040
  • GIVE YOU THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:27.090
  • MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU WHEN HE GIVES IT TO YOU.
  • 00:13:27.110 --> 00:13:32.030
  • IT'S A DEEP THING WHEN THE PERSON THAT
  • 00:13:32.050 --> 00:13:34.040
  • HATED YOU THE MOST NOW CELEBRATES YOU.
  • 00:13:34.060 --> 00:13:37.100
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOUR RESPONSE TO YOUR
  • 00:13:37.120 --> 00:13:39.180
  • ENEMIES IS NOT JUST GONNA FREE YOU, IT'S GONNA WIN
  • 00:13:39.200 --> 00:13:41.280
  • THEM. GOD CARES ABOUT YOUR ENEMIES. WHY?
  • 00:13:42.000 --> 00:13:47.260
  • BECAUSE WE WERE HIS ENEMIES.
  • 00:13:47.280 --> 00:13:51.050
  • SIN CAUSED US TO BE HIS ENEMY.
  • 00:13:51.070 --> 00:13:53.060
  • DON'T FORGET WHERE THE BLOOD FOUND YOU.
  • 00:13:53.080 --> 00:13:56.220
  • YOU WEREN'T ALWAYS SAVED YOUR WHOLE LITTLE LIFE.
  • 00:13:56.240 --> 00:13:59.070
  • YOU WEREN'T ALWAYS FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:13:59.090 --> 00:14:01.170
  • YOU WEREN'T ALWAYS WORSHIPPING.
  • 00:14:01.190 --> 00:14:03.120
  • THERE WAS A POINT WHERE YOU WERE GOD'S ENEMY
  • 00:14:03.140 --> 00:14:06.200
  • UNTIL THE BLOOD FOUND YOU, AND WHEN THE BLOOD
  • 00:14:06.220 --> 00:14:09.150
  • FOUND YOU, YOU WERE BROUGHT BACK INTO RIGHT
  • 00:14:09.170 --> 00:14:11.260
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER.
  • 00:14:11.280 --> 00:14:13.260
  • THAT'S WHY GOD WANTS YOU TO TREAT YOUR ENEMIES
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:16.140
  • WITH PATIENCE AND WITH LOVE BECAUSE HE DID THE
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:19.010
  • SAME THING WITH YOU WHEN YOU WERE HIS ENEMY, WHEN
  • 00:14:19.030 --> 00:14:22.100
  • YOU WERE SMOKING AND DRINKING AND LYING AND
  • 00:14:22.120 --> 00:14:25.140
  • STEALING AND IN THE CLUBS AND DOING ALL OF THIS
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:28.030
  • STUFF, HE STILL WOKE YOU UP EVERY MORNING, HE
  • 00:14:28.050 --> 00:14:30.220
  • STILL COVERED YOU, HE DID NOT ALLOW THE DISEASE TO
  • 00:14:30.240 --> 00:14:34.080
  • OVERTAKE YOU WHEN YOU WERE HIS ENEMY, IN THIS
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:38.000
  • WE KNOW THE LOVE THAT EVEN WHILE WE WERE YET
  • 00:14:38.020 --> 00:14:42.130
  • SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR THE UNGODLY.
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:47.040

  • THE COUPLE MINUTES THAT I HAVE LEFT.
  • 00:15:01.020 --> 00:15:03.210
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT DAVID'S RESPONSE TO
  • 00:15:03.230 --> 00:15:06.090
  • HIS ENEMIES CEMENTED HIS LEGACY. HAD HE KILLED
  • 00:15:06.110 --> 00:15:11.070
  • SAUL, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN LABELED A USURPER.
  • 00:15:11.090 --> 00:15:14.070
  • BUT DAVID'S RESPONSE WASN'T JUST ABOUT HIM
  • 00:15:14.090 --> 00:15:16.050
  • OR HIS MEN, IT WAS ABOUT HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:15:16.070 --> 00:15:18.250
  • THE PROPHESY WAS THAT THE SAVIOR WOULD COME THROUGH
  • 00:15:18.270 --> 00:15:22.230
  • DAVID'S LINEAGE.
  • 00:15:22.250 --> 00:15:26.180

  • JUST RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:16:08.210 --> 00:16:10.010
  • SO JESUS STOOD STILL
  • 00:16:10.030 --> 00:16:14.020

  • WAS BY THE ROADSIDE BEGGING.
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:06.200
  • IT'S NOT LIKE WHEN YOU SEE PEOPLE ON THE SIDE OF
  • 00:17:06.220 --> 00:17:08.150
  • A HIGHWAY WITH A SIGN.
  • 00:17:08.170 --> 00:17:10.050
  • HE WASN'T BEGGING FOR MONEY.
  • 00:17:10.070 --> 00:17:12.100
  • BECAUSE HE HAD A GARMENT, YOU'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:17:12.120 --> 00:17:14.130
  • THE CULTURE OF THE TIME.
  • 00:17:14.150 --> 00:17:16.080
  • BARTIMAEUS, IT SAYS THE SON OF TIMAEUS.
  • 00:17:16.100 --> 00:17:18.290
  • IF HE WAS JUST A REGULAR BEGGAR WITH NO HISTORY,
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:21.290
  • NO LINEAGE, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE NAMED HIS
  • 00:17:22.010 --> 00:17:23.270
  • FATHER, BUT THEY NAMED HIM BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:17:23.290 --> 00:17:25.260
  • NOBLEMEN, PEOPLE OF NOTE.
  • 00:17:25.280 --> 00:17:27.260
  • BARTIMAEUS, THE GARMENT THAT HE HAD ON WAS
  • 00:17:27.280 --> 00:17:30.170
  • SYMBOLIC OF HIS ROYAL IDENTITY, OF HIS
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:32.210
  • STATURE IN SOCIETY.
  • 00:17:32.230 --> 00:17:34.150
  • IT WAS A SIGN OF RESPECT.
  • 00:17:34.170 --> 00:17:36.060
  • HE WASN'T BEGGING FOR MONEY.
  • 00:17:36.080 --> 00:17:39.100
  • HE WASN'T AT THE POOL, HE WASN'T BY THE TEMPLE, HE
  • 00:17:39.120 --> 00:17:42.170
  • WAS ON THE ROADSIDE, AND THE DIFFERENCE IS HE WAS
  • 00:17:42.190 --> 00:17:46.020
  • WAITING-- SCRIPTURE AND THE TEACHINGS MAKE IT CLEAR
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:50.140
  • HE WAS WAITING FOR SOMEBODY WITH ENOUGH POWER TO GET
  • 00:17:50.160 --> 00:17:53.150
  • HIM OUT OF HIS SITUATION.
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:55.140
  • HE HAD AMBITION IN A PROPER POSITION.
  • 00:17:55.160 --> 00:18:01.280
  • HE WANTED HIS SIGHT SO THAT HE COULD FULFILL HIS
  • 00:18:02.000 --> 00:18:05.170
  • DESTINY BECAUSE THE NAME BARTIMAEUS, IF YOU STUDY
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:09.050
  • IT, IT MEANS PRIZE, HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER.
  • 00:18:09.070 --> 00:18:11.210
  • HE KNEW HE HAD A GIFT ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:13.220
  • HE WAS PRIZED. HE WAS VALUED.
  • 00:18:13.240 --> 00:18:15.260
  • BUT THIS BLINDNESS LIMITED HIM AND HIS ABILITY.
  • 00:18:15.280 --> 00:18:18.180
  • HOW MANY OF US HAVE BLIND SPOTS THAT WE NEED
  • 00:18:18.200 --> 00:18:20.180
  • JESUS TO FREE US FROM?
  • 00:18:20.200 --> 00:18:22.290
  • NOW IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SHOW AMBITION, SHOW
  • 00:18:23.010 --> 00:18:25.100
  • AMBITION IN THAT WORD, SHOW AMBITION TO PURSUE
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:28.210
  • CHRIST, SHOW AMBITION TO PURSUE THE CHARACTER OF GOD.
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:32.070
  • IF YOU WANT TO SHOW AMBITION, DON'T SHOW
  • 00:18:32.090 --> 00:18:34.090
  • AMBITION BY STEPPING OVER PEOPLE; SHOW AMBITION BY
  • 00:18:34.110 --> 00:18:37.100
  • YOUR WORSHIP TO GOD.
  • 00:18:37.120 --> 00:18:38.240
  • LET GOD SEE THAT YOU MEAN BUSINESS SO MUCH SO THAT
  • 00:18:38.260 --> 00:18:42.060
  • THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU SAY WOULD YOU PLEASE BE
  • 00:18:42.080 --> 00:18:44.050
  • QUIET? NOTICE IT SAYS WHEN HE HEARD THAT
  • 00:18:44.070 --> 00:18:49.090
  • JESUS WAS WALKING BY, HE GOT REAL ROWDY.
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:54.140
  • JESUS!
  • 00:18:54.160 --> 00:18:57.240
  • HE DIDN'T CALL HIM MESSIAH, HE DIDN'T CALL
  • 00:18:57.260 --> 00:19:00.080
  • HIM MARY'S BABY, HE DIDN'T SAY SON OF THE
  • 00:19:00.100 --> 00:19:03.090
  • CARPENTER, HE DIDN'T SAY JOSEPH'S STEP BOY.
  • 00:19:03.110 --> 00:19:07.070
  • HE CALLED HIM HIS PROPHETIC NAME.
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:10.260
  • HE SAID SON OF DAVID, HOW IS IT THAT A BLIND MAN
  • 00:19:10.280 --> 00:19:16.230
  • COULD SEE WHO HE WAS AND THE PHARISEES COULDN'T?

  • 00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:22.290
  • IT'S ALMOST TIME FOR ME TO GO BUT I'M GONNA
  • 00:19:23.010 --> 00:19:24.150
  • PREACH IT IN ONE MINUTE LIKE I NEED TO.
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:27.140
  • BARTIMAEUS WAS THE OTHER SIDE OF AMBITION BECAUSE
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:30.210
  • HE SAID IF I'M GONNA GET FREE, THIS IS MY ONE CHANCE.
  • 00:19:30.230 --> 00:19:33.260
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT SIDE OF THE ROAD HE'S ON, BUT I
  • 00:19:33.280 --> 00:19:36.050
  • KNOW HE'S PASSING BY, AND I'M NOT GONNA JUST SAY
  • 00:19:36.070 --> 00:19:40.000
  • JESUS OF NAZARETH, I'M GONNA CALL HIM HIS
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:42.180
  • PROPHETIC NAME.
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:44.060
  • I'M GONNA LET HIM KNOW I KNOW HE'S THE ONE I'VE
  • 00:19:44.080 --> 00:19:45.250
  • BEEN WAITING ON.
  • 00:19:45.270 --> 00:19:47.130
  • HE'S THE ONE WHO DID NOT ALLOW AMBITION TO CAUSE
  • 00:19:47.150 --> 00:19:50.290
  • HIM TO GO AFTER HIS CALLING TOO SOON.
  • 00:19:51.010 --> 00:19:54.130
  • HE COULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING, JESUS COULD
  • 00:19:54.150 --> 00:19:56.180
  • HAVE BEEN KING OF THE WORLD, BUT HE LAID DOWN
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:59.020
  • HIS AMBITION FOR THE MISSION OF GOD, AND THAT
  • 00:19:59.040 --> 00:20:02.110
  • IS THE POWER OF LAYING DOWN YOUR WILL FOR THE
  • 00:20:02.130 --> 00:20:05.120
  • SAKE OF THE FATHER.
  • 00:20:05.140 --> 00:20:07.060
  • WHAT DAVID DID IS WHAT JESUS DID IS WHAT
  • 00:20:07.080 --> 00:20:10.010
  • BARTIMAEUS DID.
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:11.220
  • HE SAID JESUS! SON OF DAVID!
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:15.090
  • HAVE MERCY ON ME!
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:17.230
  • AND THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM SAID SHUT UP, HE DON'T
  • 00:20:17.250 --> 00:20:19.290
  • WANT TO TALK TO YOU, YOU AIN'T NOTHING
  • 00:20:20.010 --> 00:20:21.080
  • BUT A BLIND BEGGAR.
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:22.210
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT I AM, YOU DON'T DEFINE ME, I
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:25.080
  • KNOW I'VE GOT A CALLING! I KNOW I'VE GOT A GIFT!
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:28.190
  • AND JESUS IS WALKING BY!
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:30.190
  • JESUS!
  • 00:20:30.210 --> 00:20:33.040
  • I DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE, BUT IF YOU CAN HEAR ME,
  • 00:20:33.060 --> 00:20:36.150
  • SAVE ME! [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:43.050
  • AM I TALKING TO ANY WORSHIPPERS IN HERE?
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:45.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:20:45.090 --> 00:20:48.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE STOOD STILL AND COMMANDED
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:52.260
  • HIM TO COME, AND IT SAYS HE THREW OFF HIS GARMENT.
  • 00:20:52.280 --> 00:20:56.170
  • THAT GARMENT WAS SYMBOLIC OF HIS INFIRMITY.
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:21:01.140
  • IF YOU STUDY THE CULTURE, YOU HAD TO PUT ON A
  • 00:21:01.160 --> 00:21:03.230
  • GARMENT TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT YOUR ISSUE WAS.
  • 00:21:03.250 --> 00:21:06.260
  • HOW MANY OF US WALK AROUND WITH OUR GARMENT ON?
  • 00:21:06.280 --> 00:21:09.190
  • I'M BROKEN, I'VE BEEN ABUSED, I CAME FROM A BAD
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:12.040
  • RELATIONSHIP, PRODUCT OF A DIVORCE, I'VE HAD
  • 00:21:12.060 --> 00:21:15.120
  • ISSUES, I USED TO BE BEATEN, I WAS IN JAIL,
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:17.190
  • I USED TO SMOKE, I USED TO DRINK.
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:19.260
  • JESUS SAID I DON'T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THAT.
  • 00:21:19.280 --> 00:21:21.250
  • I'M WALKING PAST, AND IF YOU CAN JUST SHOUT MY
  • 00:21:21.270 --> 00:21:24.190
  • NAME AND THROW OFF YOUR GARMENT, I'M GONNA
  • 00:21:24.210 --> 00:21:28.120
  • CALL YOU TO MYSELF.
  • 00:21:28.140 --> 00:21:31.110
  • HE SAID I WILL NOT BE DEFINED BY MY LIMITATIONS.
  • 00:21:31.130 --> 00:21:35.180
  • GET THIS GARMENT OFF OF ME!
  • 00:21:35.200 --> 00:21:39.180
  • WATCH WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:21:39.200 --> 00:21:41.050
  • GO YOUR WAY, YOUR FAITH OR YOUR AMBITION TO
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:44.240
  • PLEASE GOD HAS MADE YOU WELL.
  • 00:21:44.260 --> 00:21:47.190
  • THERE'S TWO KINDS OF AMBITION, THE KIND THAT
  • 00:21:47.210 --> 00:21:50.250
  • PEOPLE WILL LOOK AT YOU AND SHAKE THEIR HEAD AND
  • 00:21:50.270 --> 00:21:52.270
  • SAY IT WAS YOURS ANYWAY, YOU DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:21:52.290 --> 00:21:55.130
  • TO DO IT THAT WAY.
  • 00:21:55.150 --> 00:21:57.270
  • OR THIS AMBITION THAT SAYS I'M GOING AFTER GOD
  • 00:21:57.290 --> 00:22:00.080
  • AND EVEN THE VOICES NEXT TO ME THAT TELL ME TO BE
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:02.180
  • QUIET CANNOT SHUT ME UP.
  • 00:22:02.200 --> 00:22:04.220
  • I'M GONNA SHOUT UNTIL I GET HIS ATTENTION, AND
  • 00:22:04.240 --> 00:22:07.140
  • I'M GONNA GET MY MIRACLE BECAUSE THAT IS THE POWER
  • 00:22:07.160 --> 00:22:10.110
  • OF A GOD AMBITION.
  • 00:22:10.130 --> 00:22:12.150
  • I DON'T WANT A POSITION, I WANT A MISSION.
  • 00:22:12.170 --> 00:22:15.220
  • I DON'T NEED ANYBODY TO VALIDATE ME, JUST REMOVE
  • 00:22:15.240 --> 00:22:18.190
  • THE BLIND SPOTS SO I CAN SERVE YOU.
  • 00:22:18.210 --> 00:22:21.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN JESUS HEALED HIM, HE
  • 00:22:21.280 --> 00:22:24.090
  • IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO FOLLOW HIM.
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:27.110
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOUR DELIVERANCE TONIGHT
  • 00:22:27.130 --> 00:22:29.150
  • SHOULD BE FOLLOWED BY A LIFE DEVOTED TO THE KING.
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:33.290
  • MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU TONIGHT.
  • 00:22:34.010 --> 00:22:35.150
  • GIVE HIM FIVE. GIVE HIM FIVE.
  • 00:22:35.170 --> 00:22:38.150
  • GIVE HIM FIVE. [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:22:38.170 --> 00:22:45.010
  • WHAT DID I TELL YOU?
  • 00:22:45.030 --> 00:22:47.070
  • DIDN'T I TELL YOU GOD WAS GONNA SPEAK TO YOU?
  • 00:22:47.090 --> 00:22:48.290
  • I'M TELLING YOU, GOD IS MOVING MIGHTILY.
  • 00:22:49.010 --> 00:22:50.290
  • HE WANTS HIS PEOPLE TO EXPERIENCE VICTORY, NOT
  • 00:22:51.010 --> 00:22:53.290
  • JUST SOME HALF HEARTED EXTERNAL VICTORY BUT A
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:57.060
