  • 00:00:09.290 --> 00:00:11.030
  • - Joseph Prince: Isaiah 53
  • 00:00:11.030 --> 00:00:11.260
  • says, "Surely,"
  • 00:00:11.260 --> 00:00:13.050
  • the same scroll of Isaiah says,
  • 00:00:13.050 --> 00:00:15.010
  • "Surely Jesus has borne our
  • 00:00:15.010 --> 00:00:16.070
  • diseases and carried our pains.
  • 00:00:16.100 --> 00:00:19.100
  • We did esteem him stricken,
  • 00:00:19.100 --> 00:00:21.050
  • smitten of God.
  • 00:00:21.050 --> 00:00:22.200
  • But he was wounded
  • 00:00:22.200 --> 00:00:23.240
  • for our transgressions.
  • 00:00:23.240 --> 00:00:25.180
  • He was crushed
  • 00:00:25.180 --> 00:00:26.120
  • for our iniquities.
  • 00:00:26.120 --> 00:00:27.250
  • The chastisement, the punishment
  • 00:00:27.250 --> 00:00:29.260
  • with a view to our well-being
  • 00:00:29.260 --> 00:00:31.120
  • fell upon him, and with
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:32.270
  • his stripes we are healed."

  • 00:00:41.240 --> 00:00:45.150
  • - Joseph Prince: I just wanna
  • 00:00:44.020 --> 00:00:47.020
  • say that we are in for
  • 00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:50.150
  • an exciting year, okay?
  • 00:00:50.150 --> 00:00:52.200
  • I really believe it.
  • 00:00:52.200 --> 00:00:54.050
  • The attacks that happened
  • 00:00:54.050 --> 00:00:56.180
  • just these past few weeks on me
  • 00:00:56.180 --> 00:00:59.110
  • and on my family has just
  • 00:00:59.110 --> 00:01:01.150
  • been crazy, and that's why--
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:03.160
  • by the way,
  • 00:01:03.160 --> 00:01:04.110
  • you still see me here, right?
  • 00:01:04.110 --> 00:01:05.230
  • So, we are still in one piece.
  • 00:01:05.230 --> 00:01:07.180
  • We thank God for that, but you
  • 00:01:07.180 --> 00:01:10.050
  • know that when the enemy levels
  • 00:01:10.050 --> 00:01:12.060
  • an attack, all right, against
  • 00:01:12.060 --> 00:01:14.090
  • someone, or some church, or
  • 00:01:14.090 --> 00:01:16.230
  • some organization, it's probably
  • 00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:18.060
  • the devil is afraid of what
  • 00:01:18.060 --> 00:01:19.190
  • is coming out of that ministry
  • 00:01:19.190 --> 00:01:22.150
  • and that church, amen?
  • 00:01:22.150 --> 00:01:24.080
  • So, I always covet prayer, all
  • 00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:26.040
  • right, from all of you, because
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:27.210
  • this is--we are in a warfare.
  • 00:01:27.210 --> 00:01:30.080
  • The world can never understand
  • 00:01:30.080 --> 00:01:31.230
  • that, all right?
  • 00:01:31.230 --> 00:01:32.240
  • The world will say,
  • 00:01:32.240 --> 00:01:33.200
  • "Well, it's bad luck," you know?
  • 00:01:33.200 --> 00:01:36.050
  • "It's unfortunate."
  • 00:01:36.050 --> 00:01:37.290
  • They'll use words like that,
  • 00:01:37.290 --> 00:01:39.060
  • but we know we are in a warfare,
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:42.020
  • amen?
  • 00:01:42.020 --> 00:01:42.250
  • And neither do we use the word
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:44.080
  • "Good luck."
  • 00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:45.140
  • We use the word "Favor of God,"
  • 00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:47.090
  • "Blessing of God," amen?
  • 00:01:47.090 --> 00:01:50.020
  • It's the goodness of God.
  • 00:01:50.020 --> 00:01:51.100
  • So, for the good things to
  • 00:01:51.100 --> 00:01:53.130
  • happen in our lives, we know
  • 00:01:53.130 --> 00:01:54.050
  • that God is the one that is
  • 00:01:54.050 --> 00:01:56.210
  • blessing us, making the crooked
  • 00:01:56.210 --> 00:01:59.020
  • places straight, opening doors
  • 00:01:59.020 --> 00:02:00.290
  • for us, and giving us favor
  • 00:02:00.290 --> 00:02:03.080
  • in the situations, or favor with
  • 00:02:03.080 --> 00:02:05.140
  • people, and favor in the most
  • 00:02:05.140 --> 00:02:07.260
  • tight places and the most
  • 00:02:07.260 --> 00:02:09.260
  • difficult places of our lives,
  • 00:02:09.260 --> 00:02:11.120
  • amen?
  • 00:02:11.120 --> 00:02:12.070
  • Don't use words like "lucky,"
  • 00:02:12.070 --> 00:02:13.130
  • amen?
  • 00:02:13.130 --> 00:02:14.130
  • "I was lucky."
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:15.110
  • "Oh, bad luck."
  • 00:02:15.110 --> 00:02:16.180
  • You know, the world uses that.
  • 00:02:16.180 --> 00:02:19.120
  • So, I wanna challenge you also
  • 00:02:19.120 --> 00:02:21.290
  • that as the world gets more and
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:24.110
  • more PC,
  • 00:02:24.110 --> 00:02:27.040
  • and politically correct,
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:28.260
  • don't allow it to come in
  • 00:02:28.260 --> 00:02:31.000
  • into the church,
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:32.180
  • into your life as a Christian,
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:35.100
  • as a believer,
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:36.160
  • because there are some things
  • 00:02:36.160 --> 00:02:37.180
  • that's not right, amen?
  • 00:02:37.180 --> 00:02:39.130
  • Don't sign off to, you know, or
  • 00:02:40.050 --> 00:02:43.050
  • express yourself in "OMG," amen?
  • 00:02:43.140 --> 00:02:46.140
  • If you wanna talk about God,
  • 00:02:46.140 --> 00:02:47.210
  • let's talk about God, amen?
  • 00:02:47.210 --> 00:02:49.260
  • And don't follow the trend of
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:52.120
  • the world and don't use
  • 00:02:52.120 --> 00:02:54.020
  • God's name in vain, amen?
  • 00:02:54.020 --> 00:02:55.290
  • Don't allow the world
  • 00:02:55.290 --> 00:02:57.000
  • to conform you.
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:58.180
  • Why must you jump
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:03:00.070
  • when they say jump?
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:01.220
  • Why must they dictate to you,
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:03.190
  • all right, "This is our values.
  • 00:03:03.190 --> 00:03:05.120
  • This is our standard now, okay?
  • 00:03:05.120 --> 00:03:07.060
  • Like it or not, okay, you gotta
  • 00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:08.270
  • come up to our standard"?
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:09.290
  • Who says so?
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:11.130
  • God is the one who will far
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:13.130
  • outlast them.
  • 00:03:13.130 --> 00:03:14.290
  • Long after social media is over,
  • 00:03:14.290 --> 00:03:16.290
  • God is still standing, amen?
  • 00:03:17.010 --> 00:03:20.010
  • I mean, people don't believe
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.200
  • God's Word.
  • 00:03:21.200 --> 00:03:23.010
  • They cannot believe that God
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:24.090
  • who gave us his Word can also
  • 00:03:24.090 --> 00:03:25.290
  • interpret it for us, but they
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:28.250
  • say that no, you know?
  • 00:03:28.250 --> 00:03:30.080
  • You can read my book, 'kay?
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:32.060
  • My book is very easy
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.120
  • to understand.
  • 00:03:33.120 --> 00:03:34.110
  • So, they believe that they
  • 00:03:34.110 --> 00:03:35.220
  • are erroneous books because
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:37.120
  • every man has error, amen.
  • 00:03:37.120 --> 00:03:39.210
  • It's better than God's Word?
  • 00:03:39.210 --> 00:03:42.060
  • And they sit in judgment
  • 00:03:42.060 --> 00:03:44.050
  • of the Bible.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:46.060
  • Wrong, wrong, wrong,
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:47.060
  • totally wrong.
  • 00:03:47.060 --> 00:03:48.020
  • The Bible sits in judgment
  • 00:03:48.020 --> 00:03:49.020
  • of you.
  • 00:03:49.020 --> 00:03:50.040
  • Your thoughts and your hearts
  • 00:03:50.040 --> 00:03:51.220
  • are exposed by the Word of God.
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:53.200
  • The Word of God is living
  • 00:03:53.200 --> 00:03:55.000
  • and powerful.
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:03:55.290
  • And Jesus says, "Heaven and
  • 00:03:55.290 --> 00:03:56.250
  • earth will pass away, but my
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:58.040
  • Words will never pass away."
  • 00:03:58.110 --> 00:04:01.130
  • That famous writer, philosopher,
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:06.230
  • Voltaire, French writer
  • 00:04:07.140 --> 00:04:10.140
  • called Voltaire, he said this.
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:14.010
  • He said that,
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:14.200
  • "Long after I'm dead,
  • 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:18.000
  • the Bible will be no more."
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:20.240
  • Long after his dead, his house
  • 00:04:20.240 --> 00:04:23.210
  • was used as a Bible
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:25.170
  • manufacturing press, amen,
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:29.150
  • Bible printing press, amen.
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:32.000
  • His very house.
  • 00:04:32.000 --> 00:04:34.000
  • That's why Jesus says, "Heaven
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:35.080
  • and earth will pass away,
  • 00:04:35.080 --> 00:04:37.070
  • but my Words
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:38.130
  • will never pass away," amen?
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:40.170
  • Many, many have come and gone
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:42.130
  • who have come against the Bible.
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:43.270
  • They're gone, amen.
  • 00:04:43.270 --> 00:04:45.150
  • They're either bones, or ashes,
  • 00:04:45.150 --> 00:04:47.170
  • or dust, amen.
  • 00:04:47.170 --> 00:04:49.130
  • What God says is still true.
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:51.220
  • God says the soul
  • 00:04:51.220 --> 00:04:52.240
  • that sins shall die.
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:54.070
  • Look around you, people die,
  • 00:04:54.070 --> 00:04:56.050
  • amen?
  • 00:04:56.050 --> 00:04:57.000
  • No one can escape death.
  • 00:04:57.000 --> 00:04:58.220
  • With all our intellect,
  • 00:04:58.220 --> 00:04:59.250
  • with all our brilliance,
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:01.010
  • with all our advancement,
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:02.260
  • we cannot stop death, why?
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:04.190
  • Because that sentence came in
  • 00:05:04.190 --> 00:05:06.020
  • when Adam sinned, amen?
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:08.020
  • God never meant for man to sin.
  • 00:05:08.020 --> 00:05:09.230
  • God never wanted man to sin,
  • 00:05:09.230 --> 00:05:11.250
  • because God knew with sin--you
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:13.090
  • cannot have it both ways.
  • 00:05:13.090 --> 00:05:14.110
  • With sin comes death
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:15.200
  • on its heels.
  • 00:05:15.200 --> 00:05:17.030
  • So God says, "Don't sin, because
  • 00:05:17.030 --> 00:05:18.160
  • sin brings forth death," amen.
  • 00:05:18.180 --> 00:05:21.180
  • As a result of Adam's sin.
  • 00:05:21.180 --> 00:05:23.030
  • But praise be to God,
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:24.030
  • the good news is
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:25.030
  • the wages of sin is death,
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:26.190
  • but the gift of God is
  • 00:05:26.190 --> 00:05:28.060
  • eternal life, life, life, life,
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:31.040
  • eternal life,
  • 00:05:31.040 --> 00:05:32.200
  • through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:34.130
  • Eternal life is not just when
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:35.210
  • you die, you go to heaven.
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:37.010
  • No, no, no, eternal life
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:37.240
  • starts now.
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:38.200
  • The moment you receive, you put
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:40.070
  • your trust in Jesus Christ, you
  • 00:05:40.070 --> 00:05:41.190
  • are born again, that life that
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:43.040
  • is in you now is eternal life.
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:45.220
  • It's a quality of life.
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:47.040
  • It's not just live long,
  • 00:05:47.040 --> 00:05:49.050
  • or else those who are in Hades,
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:52.100
  • those who are in hell,
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.240
  • are also living long, all right,
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:56.180
  • if that's the definition.
  • 00:05:56.180 --> 00:05:57.240
  • No, it's the quality of life.
  • 00:05:57.240 --> 00:05:59.200
  • It is the life by which God
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:00.260
  • lives by.
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:01.270
  • In Hebrew it's called--Greek,
  • 00:06:01.270 --> 00:06:03.290
  • excuse me, it's called
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:05.030
  • "aionios zoe," all right?
  • 00:06:05.030 --> 00:06:07.280
  • Zoe, like the name Zoe,
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:09.250
  • all right?
  • 00:06:09.250 --> 00:06:10.160
  • It comes from life.
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:11.290
  • "Aionios" means eternal,
  • 00:06:11.290 --> 00:06:14.020
  • zoe life.
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:15.140
  • And all of you who are born

  • Aren't you glad you are

  • Aren't you glad you are saved?
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:29.210
  • So, while people are trying to
  • 00:06:29.210 --> 00:06:31.150
  • change the definitions--for
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:34.020
  • everything they are changing
  • 00:06:34.020 --> 00:06:34.240
  • the definition.
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:35.150
  • Everything is being redefined,
  • 00:06:35.150 --> 00:06:37.040
  • all right?
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:37.220
  • Stay true to the Word of God.
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:39.100
  • What God's Word says is is,

  • amen.
  • 00:06:41.260 --> 00:06:44.080
  • It has outlast all those
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:46.260
  • whose bodies are now dust
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:48.250
  • in the grave.
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:50.140
  • It has outlast all its critics.
  • 00:06:50.140 --> 00:06:53.050
  • It is still the number one
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.110
  • best-selling book in the world.

  • it's preserved, amen.
  • 00:06:58.010 --> 00:06:59.280
  • There are those who say, "Well,

  • how do you know that the Bible
  • 00:07:01.040 --> 00:07:02.030
  • was written so many thousand
  • 00:07:02.030 --> 00:07:03.080
  • years ago, it is still the same,
  • 00:07:03.080 --> 00:07:05.160
  • and man has not--" Well,
  • 00:07:05.160 --> 00:07:06.270
  • interesting you mention that.
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:09.030
  • At the turn of 19--around 1940s,
  • 00:07:09.030 --> 00:07:11.290
  • a young Bedouin boy was looking
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.040
  • for his lost sheep over in
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:16.130
  • the Dead Sea area, and then
  • 00:07:16.130 --> 00:07:17.290
  • he thought he heard his sheep
  • 00:07:17.290 --> 00:07:19.230
  • got lost in some caves.
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:21.260
  • There are many caves.
  • 00:07:21.260 --> 00:07:22.140
  • Many of you have been to Israel.
  • 00:07:22.140 --> 00:07:23.150
  • In the Dead Sea area,
  • 00:07:23.150 --> 00:07:24.230
  • there are a lot of caves.
  • 00:07:24.230 --> 00:07:25.270
  • So, he saw a cave and then he
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:28.050
  • start throwing stones into it,
  • 00:07:28.050 --> 00:07:30.050
  • and then he thought he heard,
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:31.100
  • "Clank!"
  • 00:07:31.100 --> 00:07:33.110
  • Now, that's not a sound
  • 00:07:33.110 --> 00:07:34.260
  • of a goat or a sheep
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:37.050
  • being hit by a stone.
  • 00:07:37.050 --> 00:07:39.280
  • So, he thought he found
  • 00:07:39.280 --> 00:07:41.060
  • treasure, all right, as any
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:43.050
  • young shepherd boy would think,
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:45.150
  • and he started climbing.
  • 00:07:45.150 --> 00:07:46.220
  • And many of you have seen that
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:48.180
  • particular area in the Qumran
  • 00:07:48.180 --> 00:07:51.010
  • area, and he would climb
  • 00:07:51.010 --> 00:07:53.050
  • into that cave only to find,
  • 00:07:53.140 --> 00:07:56.140
  • all right, the earthen vessels
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:07:58.250
  • filled with scrolls and scrolls.
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.120
  • And cut a long story short,
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:02.230
  • you all know it as
  • 00:08:02.230 --> 00:08:03.230
  • the Dead Sea Scrolls today.
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:05.170
  • It's been proven.
  • 00:08:05.170 --> 00:08:06.190
  • It is carbon dated and all that
  • 00:08:06.190 --> 00:08:08.050
  • right to the time of 2.000 years
  • 00:08:08.050 --> 00:08:10.040
  • ago when the Essenes who lived
  • 00:08:10.040 --> 00:08:12.280
  • in the Qumran caves area,
  • 00:08:12.280 --> 00:08:14.130
  • they're a religious people,
  • 00:08:14.130 --> 00:08:15.290
  • they copied the book of Isaiah.
  • 00:08:15.290 --> 00:08:18.220
  • And guess what?
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:19.200
  • The Isaiah you have in your hand
  • 00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:21.290
  • is exactly word for word
  • 00:08:21.290 --> 00:08:23.200
  • with this 2.000-year-old copy.
  • 00:08:23.200 --> 00:08:25.260
  • Word for word.
  • 00:08:25.260 --> 00:08:27.180
  • That's how accurate it is.
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:29.180
  • God has kept his Word.
  • 00:08:29.180 --> 00:08:30.200
  • You know, for them,
  • 00:08:30.200 --> 00:08:32.010
  • if one letter is in error
  • 00:08:32.010 --> 00:08:34.140
  • for the copier, the rabbinical
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:37.290
  • tradition is that you gotta
  • 00:08:37.290 --> 00:08:40.080
  • wash your hands, okay, before
  • 00:08:40.080 --> 00:08:42.270
  • you write the name of the Lord,
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:45.020
  • Yud-Hei-Vav-Hei,
  • 00:08:45.020 --> 00:08:46.240
  • Jehovah, Yahweh.
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:49.180
  • And then if there's an error,
  • 00:08:49.180 --> 00:08:51.180
  • the entire script, it doesn't
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:53.080
  • matter how much they have done,
  • 00:08:53.080 --> 00:08:55.060
  • the entire script is considered
  • 00:08:55.060 --> 00:08:57.280
  • null and void.
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.290
  • And they cannot just burn it
  • 00:08:59.290 --> 00:09:00.280
  • or get rid of it.
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:02.180
  • They have to roll it like
  • 00:09:02.180 --> 00:09:04.060
  • a human being and put it in
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:05.190
  • the ground, bury it.
  • 00:09:05.190 --> 00:09:08.110
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:09:08.110 --> 00:09:09.240
  • Okay, just one error.
  • 00:09:09.240 --> 00:09:11.190
  • Just one error.
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:14.170
  • So, every letter is in place.
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:16.240
  • Every word is in place.
  • 00:09:16.240 --> 00:09:19.010
  • And Isaiah 53 says, "Surely,"
  • 00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:21.240
  • the same scroll of Isaiah says,
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:23.090
  • "Surely Jesus has borne our
  • 00:09:23.090 --> 00:09:24.210
  • diseases and carried our pains.
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:27.190
  • We did esteem him stricken,
  • 00:09:27.190 --> 00:09:29.080
  • smitten of God.
  • 00:09:29.080 --> 00:09:31.000
  • But he was wounded
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:32.000
  • for our transgressions.
  • 00:09:32.000 --> 00:09:33.220
  • He was crushed
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:34.170
  • for our iniquities.
  • 00:09:34.170 --> 00:09:36.060
  • The chastisement, the punishment
  • 00:09:36.060 --> 00:09:37.290
  • with a view to our well-being
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.250
  • fell upon him, and with his
  • 00:09:39.250 --> 00:09:41.150
  • stripes we are healed."
  • 00:09:41.290 --> 00:09:44.290
  • All that is from Isaiah.
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:46.160
  • Isaiah talks about the day when
  • 00:09:46.160 --> 00:09:48.020
  • the lion and the lamb will lie
  • 00:09:48.020 --> 00:09:50.090
  • down together, amen.
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:52.200
  • Isaiah is a beautiful book.
  • 00:09:52.200 --> 00:09:54.150
  • It's a very beautiful book.
  • 00:09:54.150 --> 00:09:55.290
  • There are 66 chapters in Isaiah.
  • 00:09:56.140 --> 00:09:59.140
  • How many books of the Bible
  • 00:09:59.140 --> 00:10:00.190
  • do we have?
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:01.160
  • Sixty-six, amen.
  • 00:10:01.160 --> 00:10:04.040
  • How many Old Testament books
  • 00:10:04.040 --> 00:10:05.150
  • do you have?
  • 00:10:05.150 --> 00:10:07.110
  • Thirty-nine, very good.
  • 00:10:07.110 --> 00:10:09.050
  • And how many New Testament books
  • 00:10:09.050 --> 00:10:10.150
  • you have?
  • 00:10:10.150 --> 00:10:11.260
  • Minus 66.
  • 00:10:11.260 --> 00:10:14.020
  • You have 27, very good.
  • 00:10:14.020 --> 00:10:16.150
  • Do you know that if you read
  • 00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:17.210
  • Isaiah, because of this they say
  • 00:10:17.210 --> 00:10:20.100
  • that there are two authors.
  • 00:10:20.100 --> 00:10:21.150
  • If you read Isaiah chapter 1 all
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:23.160
  • the way to chapter 39,
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:26.200
  • each chapter represent a book
  • 00:10:26.200 --> 00:10:28.150
  • from the Old Testament because
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:29.230
  • there are 39 books, right?
  • 00:10:29.230 --> 00:10:31.240
  • Sixty-six books of
  • 00:10:31.240 --> 00:10:32.200
  • Isaiah--chapters of Isaiah.
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:34.170
  • Thirty-nine chapters represent
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:36.130
  • the 39 books of
  • 00:10:36.130 --> 00:10:37.060
  • the Old Testament.
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:38.070
  • When you come to 39,
  • 00:10:38.070 --> 00:10:39.060
  • it's like judgment, judgment,
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:41.000
  • a lot of judgment, right?
  • 00:10:41.000 --> 00:10:43.080
  • When you come to Isaiah 40,
  • 00:10:43.080 --> 00:10:45.170
  • it's like the book of Matthew
  • 00:10:45.170 --> 00:10:46.180
  • in the New Testament.
  • 00:10:46.180 --> 00:10:48.140
  • You know what's the first word
  • 00:10:48.140 --> 00:10:49.250
  • of Isaiah 40?
  • 00:10:49.250 --> 00:10:51.140
  • "Comfort ye, comfort ye,
  • 00:10:51.140 --> 00:10:53.110
  • my people."
  • 00:10:53.110 --> 00:10:55.090
  • The tone changes, amen?
  • 00:10:55.090 --> 00:10:57.230
  • And for 27 chapters--by the way,
  • 00:10:59.090 --> 00:11:02.110
  • Isaiah 53 is after Isaiah 40.
  • 00:11:02.110 --> 00:11:04.190
  • It talks about
  • 00:11:04.190 --> 00:11:05.160
  • Jesus's sufferings.
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:06.250
  • So, it's like a mini Bible.
  • 00:11:06.250 --> 00:11:08.050
  • It's a mini Bible.
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:09.160
  • And because of this, people
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:10.190
  • say there are two authors.
  • 00:11:10.190 --> 00:11:11.280
  • There are no two authors.
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:12.240
  • There's only one author.
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:14.060
  • Jesus himself said, when he
  • 00:11:14.060 --> 00:11:15.130
  • quotes Isaiah from this portion
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:16.260
  • or this portion, it's always,
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:17.280
  • "Isaiah says," amen?
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:20.070
  • Praise the Lord.
  • 00:11:20.070 --> 00:11:21.100
  • I just want you to know that
  • 00:11:21.100 --> 00:11:22.100
  • the Bible that you have
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:23.090
  • in your hands is precious.
  • 00:11:23.170 --> 00:11:26.170
  • There was a man who was
  • 00:11:26.170 --> 00:11:27.090
  • diagnosed with some sort
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:29.120
  • of malignant growth tumor
  • 00:11:29.120 --> 00:11:31.140
  • on his jaw, jaw bone.
  • 00:11:31.140 --> 00:11:33.220
  • So, what happened was that
  • 00:11:33.220 --> 00:11:34.240
  • he was very discouraged.
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:36.040
  • He was a nominal Christian.
  • 00:11:36.040 --> 00:11:37.260
  • I don't even think that whether
  • 00:11:37.260 --> 00:11:39.030
  • he's really born again.
  • 00:11:39.030 --> 00:11:40.080
  • I'm not too sure.
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:41.040
  • It sounds like he has some
  • 00:11:41.040 --> 00:11:42.140
  • background, but not saved.
  • 00:11:42.140 --> 00:11:44.150
  • You all understand that term?
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:47.110
  • And then he went--no, what
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:50.140
  • happened after the diagnosis was
  • 00:11:50.140 --> 00:11:52.090
  • that he went back home very
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:55.200
  • discouraged and depressed, and
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:57.090
  • he asked his wife for the Bible.
  • 00:11:57.260 --> 00:12:00.280
  • He never asked for the Bible,
  • 00:12:00.280 --> 00:12:03.100
  • so the wife found the Bible
  • 00:12:03.100 --> 00:12:04.270
  • somewhere, dusted it off,
  • 00:12:04.270 --> 00:12:06.140
  • and passed it to him.
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:07.270
  • He started reading the Bible
  • 00:12:07.270 --> 00:12:09.030
  • and he said this.
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:10.140
  • Later on, he went to
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:11.140
  • a conference and he shared
  • 00:12:11.140 --> 00:12:13.080
  • with a prominent man there,
  • 00:12:13.080 --> 00:12:15.020
  • all right, what happened to him.
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:17.130
  • He shared that
  • 00:12:18.010 --> 00:12:21.010
  • as he was reading,
  • 00:12:21.010 --> 00:12:22.290
  • something happened to him.
  • 00:12:22.290 --> 00:12:24.060
  • He felt a joy, not immediately.
  • 00:12:24.060 --> 00:12:26.080
  • He just read the stories.
  • 00:12:26.080 --> 00:12:27.200
  • Now, I probably think that
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:28.150
  • he doesn't even know
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:29.130
  • where to start.
  • 00:12:29.130 --> 00:12:30.090
  • Maybe he's reading
  • 00:12:30.090 --> 00:12:31.120
  • Samson and Delilah.
  • 00:12:31.120 --> 00:12:32.250
  • Maybe he's reading Ruth.
  • 00:12:32.250 --> 00:12:34.150
  • Maybe he's reading
  • 00:12:34.150 --> 00:12:34.290
  • David and Goliath.
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:36.030
  • But as he was reading,
  • 00:12:36.030 --> 00:12:37.060
  • the whole story itself, amen--
  • 00:12:37.060 --> 00:12:39.130
  • and it's politically correct,
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:40.250
  • you know, the Bible.
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:41.250
  • It tells you as it is.
  • 00:12:41.250 --> 00:12:44.000
  • It is such a wonderful thing to
  • 00:12:44.000 --> 00:12:46.000
  • meet Jesus and he's real.
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:48.020
  • Let's get real, people, amen?
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:51.290
  • Amen.
  • 00:12:51.290 --> 00:12:52.250
  • God's perspective is always
  • 00:12:52.250 --> 00:12:53.250
  • reality, true reality.
  • 00:12:53.250 --> 00:12:56.250
  • And as he read it, he felt
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:58.200
  • a warmth in his heart.
  • 00:12:58.200 --> 00:13:00.020
  • He felt joy coming forth.
  • 00:13:00.020 --> 00:13:02.180
  • And he said that the more he
  • 00:13:02.180 --> 00:13:05.030
  • felt that, the more he read.
  • 00:13:05.030 --> 00:13:07.040
  • And every day,
  • 00:13:07.040 --> 00:13:07.230
  • he'll keep on reading,
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:08.100
  • reading, reading, reading.
  • 00:13:08.100 --> 00:13:09.050
  • He doesn't know how, he was not
  • 00:13:09.050 --> 00:13:10.260
  • exposed to healing and all that,
  • 00:13:10.260 --> 00:13:12.090
  • the teachings on healing and all
  • 00:13:12.090 --> 00:13:13.110
  • that, but he shared with
  • 00:13:13.110 --> 00:13:14.200
  • this prominent pastor,
  • 00:13:14.200 --> 00:13:17.010
  • Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, who
  • 00:13:17.010 --> 00:13:19.060
  • was in a conference, he shared
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:20.190
  • with him he didn't understand
  • 00:13:20.190 --> 00:13:21.210
  • what happened to him.
  • 00:13:21.210 --> 00:13:22.140
  • Maybe he can explain to him.
  • 00:13:22.140 --> 00:13:23.220
  • He said that, "This is what
  • 00:13:23.220 --> 00:13:24.180
  • happened to me.
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:25.110
  • I'm a very scientific person.
  • 00:13:25.110 --> 00:13:26.180
  • I'm a--" you know,
  • 00:13:26.180 --> 00:13:27.250
  • he's well-known in his business,
  • 00:13:27.250 --> 00:13:29.120
  • in the industry.
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:31.070
  • He says that, "How do you
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:32.000
  • explain this?
  • 00:13:32.000 --> 00:13:32.250
  • I just kept on reading my Bible.
  • 00:13:32.250 --> 00:13:34.130
  • One day, I felt such joy
  • 00:13:34.130 --> 00:13:35.170
  • and all that.
  • 00:13:35.170 --> 00:13:36.140
  • Went back to the doctor
  • 00:13:36.140 --> 00:13:37.070
  • and the doctor cannot find
  • 00:13:37.070 --> 00:13:38.090
  • the malignant tumor."
  • 00:13:38.090 --> 00:13:40.000
  • The tumor is gone, amen,
  • 00:13:40.000 --> 00:13:42.080
  • just by reading the Bible.
  • 00:13:42.080 --> 00:13:43.180
  • Well, my Bible says in
  • 00:13:43.180 --> 00:13:44.200
  • Proverbs 4, verse 22, "They,
  • 00:13:44.200 --> 00:13:47.120
  • my words--attend to my words,"
  • 00:13:47.120 --> 00:13:49.160
  • for why?
  • 00:13:49.160 --> 00:13:51.030
  • "They are life to those that
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:52.140
  • find them, and health,"
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:54.250
  • in the Hebrew is marpe,
  • 00:13:55.030 --> 00:13:58.030
  • health is medicine, "health,
  • 00:13:58.030 --> 00:14:00.060
  • medicine to all their flesh."
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:02.210
  • God's Word is medicine
  • 00:14:02.210 --> 00:14:03.250
  • to all your flesh.
  • 00:14:03.250 --> 00:14:05.120
  • So, even the daily devo, just
  • 00:14:05.120 --> 00:14:07.060
  • a little bite-size even you read
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:08.250
  • get exposed to God's Word.
  • 00:14:08.250 --> 00:14:11.000
  • You know, many of you, you wake
  • 00:14:11.000 --> 00:14:12.110
  • up, one of the first things you
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:13.080
  • do, you go to your Facebook.
  • 00:14:13.080 --> 00:14:14.110
  • You just look at all the news
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:16.160
  • and you wonder why in the day,
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:19.010
  • during the day, you've got
  • 00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:20.100
  • this symptom, that symptom.
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:22.050
  • It might be related to stress,
  • 00:14:22.050 --> 00:14:23.290
  • all right, psychosoma.
  • 00:14:23.290 --> 00:14:26.000
  • The doctors called it
  • 00:14:26.000 --> 00:14:27.040
  • psychosomatic illness.
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:28.090
  • Your mind affects your body,
  • 00:14:28.090 --> 00:14:30.030
  • where you're exposed to all this
  • 00:14:30.030 --> 00:14:31.160
  • stressful news, and you know,
  • 00:14:31.160 --> 00:14:33.140
  • this person says this, you know?
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:35.010
  • Let me tell you this, okay.
  • 00:14:35.010 --> 00:14:36.200
  • News is like that.
  • 00:14:36.200 --> 00:14:38.020
  • For every good thing someone
  • 00:14:38.020 --> 00:14:39.080
  • says, there's some bad thing
  • 00:14:39.080 --> 00:14:40.150
  • someone will say.
  • 00:14:40.150 --> 00:14:41.170
  • You understand or not?
  • 00:14:41.170 --> 00:14:42.130
  • Let me save you.
  • 00:14:42.130 --> 00:14:43.040
  • You watch a documentary, they'll
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:43.280
  • tell you, "Yes, this is this,
  • 00:14:43.280 --> 00:14:45.060
  • but yes, that's that."
  • 00:14:45.060 --> 00:14:48.020
  • You know, I was so fed up when
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:49.190
  • I watched one documentary
  • 00:14:49.190 --> 00:14:51.000
  • explaining the miracles of
  • 00:14:51.060 --> 00:14:54.060
  • Exodus, saying that why there
  • 00:14:54.130 --> 00:14:57.130
  • was a gas exposed, and
  • 00:14:57.130 --> 00:14:59.010
  • the firstborn always sleep on
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:00.120
  • top, so the firstborn didn't
  • 00:15:00.120 --> 00:15:01.120
  • get the gas.
  • 00:15:01.120 --> 00:15:02.290
  • Sorry, the firstborn sleeps
  • 00:15:02.290 --> 00:15:03.240
  • below, so the second-born
  • 00:15:03.240 --> 00:15:04.280
  • doesn't get the gas,
  • 00:15:04.280 --> 00:15:06.020
  • 'cause the rest all got the gas.
  • 00:15:06.020 --> 00:15:08.020
  • Many of you sleep with
  • 00:15:08.020 --> 00:15:09.030
  • gas every day, I know,
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:10.090
  • and you still survive.
  • 00:15:10.090 --> 00:15:11.160
  • Can you imagine, the gas
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:13.210
  • killed all the firstborn.
  • 00:15:13.210 --> 00:15:14.290
  • All right, the interesting thing
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:15.280
  • is that in the house of
  • 00:15:15.280 --> 00:15:17.200
  • the Jewish people, the Hebrews,
  • 00:15:17.200 --> 00:15:19.220
  • none of the firstborn died.
  • 00:15:19.220 --> 00:15:21.180
  • And then they say that, "Oh, we
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:23.030
  • know that the place where they
  • 00:15:23.030 --> 00:15:24.200
  • crossed the Red Sea, the place
  • 00:15:24.200 --> 00:15:26.060
  • where they crossed the Red Sea
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:27.050
  • is only a few feet only.
  • 00:15:27.050 --> 00:15:28.190
  • You know, you can just
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:29.130
  • wade through, all right.
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:30.160
  • I mean, we understand the poetic
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:32.010
  • language, God opened the sea,
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:33.250
  • they went through it,
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:34.230
  • and all that,
  • 00:15:34.230 --> 00:15:35.160
  • and they just wade through."
  • 00:15:35.160 --> 00:15:36.160
  • By the way, this was shared
  • 00:15:36.160 --> 00:15:37.110
  • in a university by people
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:40.230
  • professing themselves
  • 00:15:40.230 --> 00:15:42.110
  • to be wise become fools.
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:44.020
  • There a lot of educated idiots,
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:46.010
  • you know?
  • 00:15:46.010 --> 00:15:47.180
  • And I'm not referring to
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:48.080
  • all professors.
  • 00:15:48.080 --> 00:15:49.040
  • I'm not referring to all,
  • 00:15:49.040 --> 00:15:50.020
  • so don't get personal.
  • 00:15:50.020 --> 00:15:50.290
  • There are many great ones, and
  • 00:15:50.290 --> 00:15:52.060
  • you are one of them, right?
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:54.110
  • Amen, so I'm referring to one of
  • 00:15:54.110 --> 00:15:55.230
  • those who come against
  • 00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:58.110
  • the Word of God, you know?
  • 00:15:58.110 --> 00:16:00.030
  • And they say that, "Oh,
  • 00:16:00.030 --> 00:16:01.010
  • where they went through,
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:01.260
  • it's just a few feet."
  • 00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:03.070
  • Then one student put up his
  • 00:16:03.070 --> 00:16:04.060
  • hand, "Can I say something?"
  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:05.150
  • They said, "Yes, you may."
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:06.160
  • That's more amazing, because
  • 00:16:06.160 --> 00:16:08.060
  • the Bible says that God drowned
  • 00:16:08.060 --> 00:16:10.150
  • the entire army of Pharaoh in
  • 00:16:10.150 --> 00:16:12.150
  • Out of the mouth of babes.
  • 00:16:19.070 --> 00:16:21.060
  • Don't be intimidated by people
  • 00:16:21.060 --> 00:16:22.260
  • just because, you know
  • 00:16:22.260 --> 00:16:24.050
  • what I'm saying?
  • 00:16:24.050 --> 00:16:25.100
  • At the end of the day,
  • 00:16:25.100 --> 00:16:26.060
  • I'm telling you, you've got
  • 00:16:26.060 --> 00:16:27.130
  • the wisdom of God.
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:28.190
  • You've got the favor of God.
  • 00:16:28.190 --> 00:16:30.200
  • The Bible says, "Out of
  • 00:16:30.200 --> 00:16:31.180
  • the mouth of babes and
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:32.110
  • sucklings, God has ordained
  • 00:16:32.110 --> 00:16:33.170
  • strength," amen?
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:35.010
  • Okay, I'm ready for the Word.
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:37.280
  • All right, Acts 20, come on,
  • 00:16:37.280 --> 00:16:40.140
  • let's go for it.
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:41.160
  • "But we sailed," Paul and Luke,
  • 00:16:42.260 --> 00:16:45.260
  • in the book of Acts, "We sailed
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:47.180
  • away from Philippi after
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:49.120
  • the days of unleavened bread,
  • 00:16:49.120 --> 00:16:50.240
  • and in five days
  • 00:16:50.240 --> 00:16:52.030
  • joined them at Troas,
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:53.170
  • where we stayed seven days."
  • 00:16:53.170 --> 00:16:55.210
  • Troas is ancient Greek,
  • 00:16:55.210 --> 00:16:57.290
  • the city of Troy.
  • 00:16:58.000 --> 00:17:01.020
  • You know Helen of Troy?
  • 00:17:01.020 --> 00:17:02.130
  • All right, this is Troas of
  • 00:17:02.130 --> 00:17:03.260
  • ancient Greek.
  • 00:17:03.260 --> 00:17:05.210
  • "Now on the first day of
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:06.200
  • the week," that is a Sunday.
  • 00:17:06.200 --> 00:17:08.210
  • First day of the week is
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:09.220
  • a Sunday, or else in the book
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:11.080
  • of Acts, they would write
  • 00:17:11.080 --> 00:17:13.060
  • "Sabbath," amen?
  • 00:17:13.060 --> 00:17:15.150
  • They are well aware.
  • 00:17:15.150 --> 00:17:16.120
  • They write "Sabbath--"
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:17.110
  • in fact, you can find "Sabbath"
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:18.090
  • as well in the book of Acts.
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:19.230
  • But when it says first day of
  • 00:17:19.230 --> 00:17:20.230
  • the week, that's a Sunday.
  • 00:17:20.230 --> 00:17:22.060
  • Jesus rose on a Sunday.
  • 00:17:22.060 --> 00:17:23.250
  • All right, in the old economy of
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:26.020
  • things, in the Old Testament,
  • 00:17:26.020 --> 00:17:28.140
  • in creation, God worked
  • 00:17:28.140 --> 00:17:31.060
  • and then he rested, amen?
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:33.110
  • He didn't rest because
  • 00:17:33.110 --> 00:17:34.110
  • he was tired.
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.200
  • The God of Israel neither
  • 00:17:35.200 --> 00:17:36.260
  • slumbers nor sleeps.
  • 00:17:36.260 --> 00:17:37.250
  • He does not get tired,
  • 00:17:37.250 --> 00:17:39.070
  • all right?
  • 00:17:39.070 --> 00:17:39.260
  • But he rests to demonstrate
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:41.080
  • to all of us that rest
  • 00:17:41.080 --> 00:17:43.200
  • is something holy.
  • 00:17:43.200 --> 00:17:45.020
  • In fact, the very first thing
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.080
  • that God says is holy,
  • 00:17:46.080 --> 00:17:48.140
  • he sanctified, he made holy
  • 00:17:48.140 --> 00:17:49.290
  • the Sabbath, it's rest.
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:52.020
  • In fact, never despise rest.
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:54.050
  • Today when you rest, when Moses
  • 00:17:54.050 --> 00:17:55.140
  • rested, God says to stand still
  • 00:17:55.140 --> 00:17:57.280
  • and see the salvation
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:17:59.110
  • of the Lord.
  • 00:17:59.110 --> 00:18:00.140
  • God opened up the Red Sea
  • 00:18:00.140 --> 00:18:01.150
  • for them.
  • 00:18:01.150 --> 00:18:02.190
  • When you rest, God works, amen?
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:05.230
  • So, I'm not just referring to
  • 00:18:05.230 --> 00:18:07.050
  • physical rest that you need.
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:09.090
  • I believe you need physical rest
  • 00:18:09.090 --> 00:18:10.020
  • at least once out of seven,
  • 00:18:10.020 --> 00:18:12.140
  • amen, God's wisdom.
  • 00:18:12.140 --> 00:18:13.260
  • But the old economy of things,
  • 00:18:13.260 --> 00:18:15.090
  • you work and then you rest.
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:16.120
  • But in God's economy,
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:17.170
  • Jesus rose after Sabbath.
  • 00:18:17.170 --> 00:18:20.070
  • For the Jewish people,
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:21.070
  • Sabbath is actually Saturday,
  • 00:18:21.070 --> 00:18:23.050
  • but on the next day Jesus
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:24.200
  • rose from the dead, amen.
  • 00:18:24.200 --> 00:18:27.180
  • So, there is a new rest where
  • 00:18:27.180 --> 00:18:29.150
  • you enter into rest, then you
  • 00:18:29.150 --> 00:18:30.250
  • can work Monday, Tuesday,
  • 00:18:30.250 --> 00:18:32.170
  • Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:33.190
  • You start with rest.
  • 00:18:33.190 --> 00:18:35.120
  • Whereas in the old creation, you
  • 00:18:35.120 --> 00:18:36.100
  • work, then you rest, but God's
  • 00:18:36.100 --> 00:18:37.160
  • way is you enter into rest
  • 00:18:37.160 --> 00:18:38.180
  • and then you work.
  • 00:18:38.180 --> 00:18:39.160
  • And that's why the Bible
  • 00:18:39.160 --> 00:18:40.110
  • starts by saying,
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:40.290
  • "We are complete in Christ.
  • 00:18:40.290 --> 00:18:42.170
  • Now walk you in him."
  • 00:18:42.170 --> 00:18:44.030
  • Our walk, like the princely
  • 00:18:44.030 --> 00:18:46.020
  • walk, the heavenly walk,
  • 00:18:46.020 --> 00:18:48.100
  • the walk that tells you, "I feel
  • 00:18:48.100 --> 00:18:49.180
  • heaven about that woman,"
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:51.090
  • you know, when she walks into
  • 00:18:51.090 --> 00:18:52.050
  • a room.
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:52.240
  • That lady just brings the mean
  • 00:18:52.240 --> 00:18:54.180
  • of heaven, the mean of royalty,
  • 00:18:54.180 --> 00:18:56.270
  • something about her, all right?
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:58.070
  • That walk is because of
  • 00:18:58.070 --> 00:18:59.180
  • who she is.
  • 00:18:59.180 --> 00:19:01.060
  • What you are precedes
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:04.050
  • what you do, but religion
  • 00:19:04.050 --> 00:19:06.200
  • is trying to say you do, you do
  • 00:19:06.200 --> 00:19:09.180
  • and then you will be, amen.
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:11.250
  • Well, that Christian religion
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:13.050
  • that try to say, "You do--"
  • 00:19:13.050 --> 00:19:14.190
  • Christendom is saying, "You do,
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:16.030
  • then you be," but I'm here to
  • 00:19:16.030 --> 00:19:17.200
  • tell you that anyone teaches
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:20.010
  • that is not Christianity.
  • 00:19:20.010 --> 00:19:22.060
  • Christianity starts with
  • 00:19:22.060 --> 00:19:23.170
  • it's all done.
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:25.210
  • I said it's all done, amen.
  • 00:19:25.210 --> 00:19:27.250
  • It is all done.
  • 00:19:27.250 --> 00:19:29.210
  • Now you walk out of that
  • 00:19:29.210 --> 00:19:31.020
  • completeness.
  • 00:19:31.020 --> 00:19:32.050
  • You walk out that completeness.
  • 00:19:32.050 --> 00:19:33.220
  • You walk out the fact that you
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:34.230
  • are the righteousness of God in
  • 00:19:34.230 --> 00:19:35.280
  • Christ already.
  • 00:19:35.280 --> 00:19:37.180
  • Can I have a good amen?
  • 00:19:37.180 --> 00:19:39.050
  • You must have this assurance,
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:40.080
  • amen?
  • 00:19:40.080 --> 00:19:41.070
  • It's finished.
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:42.020
  • IT's done, hallelujah.
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.200
  • And the Bible says that on the
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:45.250
  • first day of the week, because
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:47.020
  • Jesus rose from--on the Sunday,
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:50.000
  • from then on they celebrated
  • 00:19:50.000 --> 00:19:51.060
  • Sunday.
  • 00:19:51.060 --> 00:19:52.230
  • Of course they are being
  • 00:19:52.230 --> 00:19:54.070
  • persecuted because
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:55.060
  • Shabbat is their custom.
  • 00:19:55.060 --> 00:19:57.260
  • They grew up in their family
  • 00:19:57.260 --> 00:19:59.030
  • Shabbat on Saturday
  • 00:19:59.030 --> 00:20:00.150
  • is a rest day.
  • 00:20:00.150 --> 00:20:01.280
  • In fact, for a time they still
  • 00:20:01.280 --> 00:20:03.030
  • observe both, but actually
  • 00:20:03.030 --> 00:20:05.220
  • when--Sabbath is a picture of
  • 00:20:05.220 --> 00:20:08.010
  • the rest of the old creation, if
  • 00:20:08.010 --> 00:20:09.250
  • you are taking down notes,
  • 00:20:09.250 --> 00:20:10.210
  • all right?
  • 00:20:10.210 --> 00:20:11.180
  • Sunday, the Lord's day,
  • 00:20:11.180 --> 00:20:13.080
  • the first day of the week,
  • 00:20:13.080 --> 00:20:14.070
  • is the rest of redemption.
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.260
  • And that's why creation has
  • 00:20:17.260 --> 00:20:19.150
  • fallen.
  • 00:20:19.150 --> 00:20:20.240
  • When man sinned,
  • 00:20:20.240 --> 00:20:23.060
  • man disrupted God's rest.
  • 00:20:23.060 --> 00:20:24.200
  • God started working again
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:25.190
  • for man's redemption.
  • 00:20:25.190 --> 00:20:27.180
  • And the only rest that God has
  • 00:20:27.180 --> 00:20:28.280
  • right now is the rest in his Son
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:31.220
