  • 00:00:17.060 --> 00:00:18.150
  • - Joseph Prince: When you lose
  • 00:00:18.150 --> 00:00:19.060
  • your rest, you lose your
  • 00:00:19.060 --> 00:00:21.100
  • perspective.
  • 00:00:21.100 --> 00:00:23.060
  • You lose your vision.
  • 00:00:23.060 --> 00:00:24.170
  • Whenever I hear someone talking,
  • 00:00:24.170 --> 00:00:25.240
  • you know, for example, "You know
  • 00:00:25.240 --> 00:00:27.080
  • what, I think I need to work
  • 00:00:27.080 --> 00:00:28.100
  • overtime because it's really not
  • 00:00:28.100 --> 00:00:29.140
  • easy to have this.
  • 00:00:29.140 --> 00:00:30.210

  • special courses," I can
  • 00:00:31.150 --> 00:00:32.230
  • hear--when I hear that, I know
  • 00:00:32.230 --> 00:00:35.130
  • they have lost their
  • 00:00:35.130 --> 00:00:36.000
  • perspective.
  • 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:37.000
  • Why?
  • 00:00:37.000 --> 00:00:37.170
  • They have lost their rest.
  • 00:00:37.170 --> 00:00:39.240
  • God doesn't want you to sweat
  • 00:00:39.240 --> 00:00:40.160
  • for your blessings.
  • 00:00:40.160 --> 00:00:41.120
  • Don't sweat for your healing,
  • 00:00:41.120 --> 00:00:42.290
  • don't sweat for your prosperity.
  • 00:00:42.290 --> 00:00:44.190
  • Don't sweat it.
  • 00:00:44.190 --> 00:00:45.220
  • God is merciful.
  • 00:00:45.220 --> 00:00:47.170
  • I said God is merciful.
  • 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:48.280
  • God is the God of the second
  • 00:00:49.160 --> 00:00:52.160

  • immoral affair or that
  • 00:00:57.090 --> 00:00:59.130
  • relationship.
  • 00:00:59.130 --> 00:01:00.030
  • Praise be to God.
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:01.070

  • - Joseph Prince: I want to
  • 00:02:05.190 --> 00:02:06.090
  • share with you these principles
  • 00:02:06.090 --> 00:02:07.030
  • of rest today from the story of
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:09.160
  • Samson, the story of Samson.
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:12.140
  • It contains rich nuggets of
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:14.130
  • truth about rest.
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:16.040
  • We're going to see where Samson
  • 00:02:16.040 --> 00:02:17.070
  • was called by God, where he
  • 00:02:17.070 --> 00:02:18.200
  • failed, what we need to avoid
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:20.090
  • today, all right?
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.220
  • You ready?
  • 00:02:21.220 --> 00:02:22.200
  • Samson was born to a man called
  • 00:02:22.200 --> 00:02:25.160
  • Manoah.
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:27.050
  • And he was--his destiny was
  • 00:02:27.050 --> 00:02:29.140
  • to deliver Israel from
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:30.220
  • the Philistines.
  • 00:02:30.220 --> 00:02:31.280
  • Now, Manoach, his name,
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.120
  • Manoach, means rest.
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:35.090
  • So, you can see that Samson was
  • 00:02:35.090 --> 00:02:37.190
  • a child of rest.
  • 00:02:37.190 --> 00:02:39.110
  • He's born of rest.
  • 00:02:39.110 --> 00:02:41.240
  • And when--before he was born,
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:43.020
  • an angel of the Lord came to
  • 00:02:43.020 --> 00:02:44.150
  • Samson's mother and told her
  • 00:02:44.150 --> 00:02:46.250
  • that this child was destined to
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:49.040
  • be a champion to deliver Israel.
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:52.100
  • So, the Lord--in fact, it was
  • 00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:53.200
  • Jesus that appeared.
  • 00:02:53.200 --> 00:02:55.020
  • Messenger there, all right,
  • 00:02:55.020 --> 00:02:56.140
  • the word there is messenger.
  • 00:02:56.140 --> 00:02:57.260
  • It's the Lord Jesus because he
  • 00:02:57.260 --> 00:02:59.030
  • All right, and he said to
  • 00:03:01.120 --> 00:03:02.210
  • the woman that this child is
  • 00:03:02.210 --> 00:03:04.040
  • destined to be a champion.
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:06.040
  • Watch this.
  • 00:03:06.040 --> 00:03:07.150
  • The Lord says, "Make sure you
  • 00:03:07.150 --> 00:03:09.030
  • don't eat anything from the
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:11.290
  • grape tree, neither raisins, nor
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:14.080
  • grapes, nor wine, because this
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:16.090
  • child shall be a Nazarite from
  • 00:03:16.090 --> 00:03:18.070
  • the mother's womb."
  • 00:03:18.070 --> 00:03:19.150
  • Now, a Nazarite, the law of
  • 00:03:19.150 --> 00:03:21.080
  • the Nazarite is actually about
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:22.050
  • 3 months.
  • 00:03:22.050 --> 00:03:23.170
  • All right, you keep your hair
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:24.170
  • long during that time because of
  • 00:03:24.170 --> 00:03:25.180
  • a vow you make to God.
  • 00:03:25.180 --> 00:03:26.240
  • And during that time, you drink
  • 00:03:26.240 --> 00:03:27.230
  • All right, and then you fulfill
  • 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:32.100
  • your vow.
  • 00:03:32.100 --> 00:03:32.270
  • But Samson was called to be
  • 00:03:32.270 --> 00:03:34.090
  • a Nazarite from his womb--from
  • 00:03:34.090 --> 00:03:37.050
  • the womb of his mother until
  • 00:03:37.050 --> 00:03:38.060
  • he dies.
  • 00:03:38.060 --> 00:03:39.270
  • You understand?
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:40.180
  • It's a lifelong Nazariteship.
  • 00:03:41.280 --> 00:03:44.280
  • Then the Bible tells us
  • 00:03:44.280 --> 00:03:46.190
  • the mother ran all the way--when
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:48.040
  • she saw the man of God, she ran
  • 00:03:48.040 --> 00:03:49.130
  • all the way up the hill.
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:51.190
  • And she found her husband,
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:52.180
  • Manoach, and she said that,
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:53.210
  • "This messenger from God came,
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:55.210
  • and his face was brilliant,
  • 00:03:55.210 --> 00:03:57.150
  • and he gave me this outstanding
  • 00:03:57.150 --> 00:03:59.040
  • message."
  • 00:03:59.040 --> 00:03:59.290
  • And the husband says, "I will
  • 00:03:59.290 --> 00:04:01.160
  • not believe until I see him.
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:02.230
  • Ask God to send him again."
  • 00:04:02.230 --> 00:04:04.020
  • So, he himself prayed, "God,
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:05.150
  • if this is true, send the man
  • 00:04:05.150 --> 00:04:06.170
  • of God again.
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:07.170
  • Send that messenger again."
  • 00:04:07.170 --> 00:04:08.140
  • And Jesus appeared again in his
  • 00:04:08.140 --> 00:04:10.000
  • pre-incarnate appearance to
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:11.070
  • Manoach.
  • 00:04:11.070 --> 00:04:12.120
  • And again, he said the same
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:13.150
  • things that he said to the wife,
  • 00:04:13.150 --> 00:04:16.140
  • and then he disappeared.
  • 00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:17.280
  • Samson's life was marked by
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:22.290
  • supernatural things from the
  • 00:04:22.290 --> 00:04:23.280
  • start, even before he was born.
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:26.200
  • The Bible says only at times the
  • 00:04:26.200 --> 00:04:28.100
  • Holy Spirit would come on him,
  • 00:04:28.100 --> 00:04:29.190
  • then he would do great exploits.
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:31.220
  • Amen.
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:32.170
  • With all his great exploits,
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:36.070
  • Samson had a problem.
  • 00:04:36.070 --> 00:04:38.000
  • And it's a problem that is
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:39.220
  • pretty common with man.
  • 00:04:39.220 --> 00:04:41.190
  • His problem was that of lust,
  • 00:04:42.140 --> 00:04:45.140
  • L-U-S-T.
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:46.160
  • He had a women problem.
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:48.060
  • And it's because of the way his
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:49.230
  • father brought him up.
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:51.180
  • Let me tell you something about
  • 00:04:51.180 --> 00:04:52.080
  • lust problem.
  • 00:04:52.080 --> 00:04:53.250
  • Usually, it comes out of
  • 00:04:53.250 --> 00:04:54.280
  • rejection, a life of rejection.
  • 00:04:55.050 --> 00:04:58.050
  • Now, Samson should not feel
  • 00:04:58.050 --> 00:04:59.010
  • rejected.
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:04:59.210
  • He should feel special.
  • 00:04:59.210 --> 00:05:01.070
  • called by God to live a Nazirite
  • 00:05:03.070 --> 00:05:06.010
  • life from young.
  • 00:05:06.010 --> 00:05:07.090
  • His parents should have--his
  • 00:05:07.090 --> 00:05:08.210
  • father especially should have
  • 00:05:08.210 --> 00:05:10.050
  • made him feel special because
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:11.280
  • every year, they have a grape
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:12.290
  • harvest.
  • 00:05:12.290 --> 00:05:13.250
  • You know, they pick up the
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:14.130
  • grapes, and it's a whole village
  • 00:05:14.130 --> 00:05:16.180
  • celebration.
  • 00:05:16.180 --> 00:05:17.110
  • They will put the grapes in
  • 00:05:17.110 --> 00:05:18.040
  • will all jump on it and start
  • 00:05:20.060 --> 00:05:21.030
  • dancing.
  • 00:05:21.030 --> 00:05:21.240
  • They play instruments,
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:22.170
  • they'll sing songs.
  • 00:05:22.170 --> 00:05:23.070
  • And the adults and the young
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:24.070
  • people, it was a communal thing
  • 00:05:24.070 --> 00:05:25.250
  • where they would dance and step
  • 00:05:25.250 --> 00:05:27.070
  • on the grapes.
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:28.040
  • That's why you get juicy wine,
  • 00:05:28.040 --> 00:05:29.170
  • folks.
  • 00:05:29.170 --> 00:05:31.040
  • And during that time of
  • 00:05:31.040 --> 00:05:31.240
  • celebration, one little boy
  • 00:05:31.240 --> 00:05:33.230
  • wasn't there, and he was Samson.
  • 00:05:33.230 --> 00:05:36.090
  • Why?
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:37.170
  • Because he cannot be among
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:40.120
  • grapes lest a juice is squeezed
  • 00:05:40.120 --> 00:05:42.220
  • into his lips.
  • 00:05:42.220 --> 00:05:44.190
  • So, he is kept away from
  • 00:05:44.190 --> 00:05:45.270
  • that celebration.
  • 00:05:45.270 --> 00:05:46.250
  • Can you imagine the little boy
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:47.200
  • peering through the bushes,
  • 00:05:47.200 --> 00:05:48.240
  • looking at the other kids
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:49.160
  • playing, and still knowing that,
  • 00:05:49.160 --> 00:05:51.240
  • you know, he cannot participate?
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:53.290
  • Not only that, when he grew up,
  • 00:05:53.290 --> 00:05:55.090
  • don't forget his hair was long.
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:56.290
  • You know, when you're
  • 00:05:56.290 --> 00:05:57.280
  • 3 years old,
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:05:58.200
  • 4 years old, you know,
  • 00:05:58.200 --> 00:06:00.080
  • and you keep your hair long,
  • 00:06:00.080 --> 00:06:01.150
  • sometimes no one can tell
  • 00:06:01.150 --> 00:06:02.150
  • whether you're a boy or a girl.
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:04.150
  • And children can be very cruel,
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:06.100
  • you know.
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:07.070
  • Kids, I mean, if there's any
  • 00:06:07.070 --> 00:06:08.210
  • physical defect, a kid will let
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:10.120
  • you know in no undiplomatic
  • 00:06:10.120 --> 00:06:13.070
  • terms, beyond a shadow of
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:15.250
  • any doubt.
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:17.230
  • They will let you know.
  • 00:06:17.230 --> 00:06:18.230
  • And I'm sure that they make fun
  • 00:06:18.230 --> 00:06:19.270
  • of Samson.
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:20.200
  • Like in Hebrews,
  • 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:21.180
  • Samson is Shimshon.
  • 00:06:21.180 --> 00:06:23.010
  • That's male.
  • 00:06:23.010 --> 00:06:23.240
  • The female version is Shimshona.
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:25.190
  • They'll probably call him,
  • 00:06:25.190 --> 00:06:26.070
  • "Shimshona, Shimshona."
  • 00:06:26.070 --> 00:06:28.160
  • Amen?
  • 00:06:28.160 --> 00:06:30.020
  • You know what that does to
  • 00:06:30.020 --> 00:06:30.180
  • a young boy?
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:32.050
  • He hates his call.
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:34.030
  • That's where the father
  • 00:06:34.030 --> 00:06:34.200
  • comes in.
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:35.180
  • But the father was never there.
  • 00:06:35.180 --> 00:06:37.170
  • So, he grew up with rejection.
  • 00:06:37.250 --> 00:06:40.250
  • He grew up with a sense of that
  • 00:06:40.250 --> 00:06:43.010
  • he doesn't belong.
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:44.130
  • In spite of all his weaknesses
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:46.280
  • and lust, Samson's life
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:51.180
  • has pictures of Christ.
  • 00:06:51.180 --> 00:06:53.180
  • And that really excites me
  • 00:06:53.180 --> 00:06:54.130
  • because every hero of the Bible,
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:55.210
  • you can see Jesus Christ,
  • 00:06:55.210 --> 00:06:57.160
  • all right, his sins and his
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:06:59.090
  • weaknesses notwithstanding.
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:01.020
  • All right, if you look at
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:01.290
  • the life of Samson,
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:03.050
  • here and there you
  • 00:07:03.050 --> 00:07:03.230
  • will find glimpses of Christ.
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:04.230
  • Gaza, and the Bible says that in
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:08.250
  • Judges 16, he "laid low till
  • 00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:10.090
  • midnight, then he took hold of
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:12.110
  • the doors of the gate of
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:13.160
  • the city and the two gateposts,
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:15.150
  • pulled them up, bar and all,
  • 00:07:15.150 --> 00:07:17.220
  • put them on his shoulders,
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:19.150
  • and carried them to the top of
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:21.110
  • the hill that faced Hebron."
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:24.040
  • Say Hebron.
  • 00:07:24.040 --> 00:07:25.070
  • Hebron means fellowship.
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:26.140
  • Now, isn't that what--you see,
  • 00:07:26.140 --> 00:07:27.180
  • you are seeing a picture of
  • 00:07:27.180 --> 00:07:28.120
  • Jesus Christ.
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:28.290
  • The gates of a city, by the way,
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:32.040
  • is the parliament of the city.
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:33.280
  • It's the center of the city.
  • 00:07:33.280 --> 00:07:35.110
  • It is the council of the city.
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:37.050
  • It's the place of strength
  • 00:07:37.050 --> 00:07:38.140
  • of the city.
  • 00:07:38.140 --> 00:07:39.070
  • When you conquer the gates,
  • 00:07:39.070 --> 00:07:40.030
  • you conquer the whole city.
  • 00:07:40.030 --> 00:07:41.090
  • That's why Jesus said the gates
  • 00:07:41.090 --> 00:07:42.120
  • of hell shall not prevail
  • 00:07:42.120 --> 00:07:43.200
  • against the church, amen.
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:46.080
  • And you see Jesus Christ here
  • 00:07:46.080 --> 00:07:47.180
  • carrying the gates of hell on
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:50.020
  • his back, our sins, our
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:51.180
  • punishment, our shame, our
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:53.140
  • poverty, our curse upon his back
  • 00:07:53.140 --> 00:07:55.180
  • all the way up to the hill of
  • 00:07:55.180 --> 00:07:56.260
  • Calvary, to give us Hebron with
  • 00:07:56.260 --> 00:07:59.010
  • God, fellowship with God.
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:00.270
  • Hallelujah, amen.
  • 00:08:00.270 --> 00:08:03.230
  • Amen, so you see pictures
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:04.290
  • of Jesus.
  • 00:08:04.290 --> 00:08:05.180
  • When I see Jesus, I get excited.
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:06.280
  • You know, it's all hidden there
  • 00:08:06.280 --> 00:08:07.250
  • in the stories of the Bible.
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:09.100
  • Amen?
  • 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:12.100
  • So, army after army came against
  • 00:08:12.100 --> 00:08:14.080
  • Samson, and he defeated
  • 00:08:14.080 --> 00:08:16.010
  • them all.
  • 00:08:16.010 --> 00:08:17.070
  • And then the devil finally came
  • 00:08:17.070 --> 00:08:19.100
  • up with a plan.
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:20.210
  • The devil began to put two
  • 00:08:20.210 --> 00:08:21.200
  • and two together, "Every time
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:22.210
  • I use force, it does not work.
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:24.190
  • The Spirit of God comes on him,
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:25.220
  • he destroys the armies.
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:27.040
  • I use force, he destroys them.
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:29.120
  • I use force, he defeats them."
  • 00:08:29.120 --> 00:08:30.260
  • And the devil says, "I must use
  • 00:08:30.260 --> 00:08:33.130
  • God's own weapon.
  • 00:08:34.060 --> 00:08:37.060
  • I notice that God uses
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:39.230
  • weak things."
  • 00:08:39.230 --> 00:08:41.270
  • So, the devil says, "I must use
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:42.230
  • God's own creation that is weak.
  • 00:08:43.240 --> 00:08:46.240
  • Who can I find?"
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:48.030
  • You all know the story.
  • 00:08:48.030 --> 00:08:49.150
  • He found a woman,
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:50.230
  • and he got Delilah.
  • 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:52.070
  • And the VIPs, the generals of
  • 00:08:52.070 --> 00:08:54.100
  • the Philistines came to Delilah
  • 00:08:54.100 --> 00:08:55.260
  • and said, "Each one of us," not
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:57.130
  • collectively, "each one of us
  • 00:08:57.130 --> 00:08:59.010
  • will give you 11.000 pieces
  • 00:08:59.010 --> 00:09:00.160
  • of silver if you can find
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:02.020
  • the secret of his strength."
  • 00:09:02.020 --> 00:09:04.290
  • The Bible says--I'm going to use
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:05.260
  • the Bible words.
  • 00:09:05.260 --> 00:09:06.160
  • The Bible says every day, she
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:08.000
  • pressed him with her words until
  • 00:09:08.000 --> 00:09:10.190
  • she vexed his soul to death.
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:15.000
  • That is really vexing, huh?
  • 00:09:15.000 --> 00:09:16.230
  • By the way, her name in Hebrew,
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:18.030
  • you know what her name means?
  • 00:09:18.030 --> 00:09:19.040
  • The exhausting one.
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:22.080
  • She is there to rob him of what?
  • 00:09:22.150 --> 00:09:25.150
  • Rest.
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:27.140
  • So, she vexed his soul, and
  • 00:09:27.190 --> 00:09:30.190
  • vexed his soul until--the Bible
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:32.070
  • says she vexed his soul
  • 00:09:32.070 --> 00:09:33.170
  • unto death.
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:34.240
  • It's there in the Bible.
  • 00:09:34.240 --> 00:09:36.140
  • So, finally he says,
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:37.030
  • "Okay, okay.
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:39.180
  • I told you I love you, woman.
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:41.240
  • I'm going to tell you right now
  • 00:09:41.240 --> 00:09:42.190
  • what I never told anybody.
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:45.200
  • I have been a Nazirite from my
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:46.190
  • mother's womb.
  • 00:09:46.190 --> 00:09:47.270
  • I have never cut my hair.
  • 00:09:47.270 --> 00:09:48.250
  • You see all this hair?
  • 00:09:48.250 --> 00:09:49.220
  • I am separated unto God."
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:53.000
  • Now, there's something about his
  • 00:09:53.000 --> 00:09:53.230
  • seven locks.
  • 00:09:53.230 --> 00:09:55.050
  • In the Bible, seven is the
  • 00:09:55.050 --> 00:09:56.100
  • number of perfection because God
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:58.230
  • made everything and finished it
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:10:00.110
  • on the seventh day.
  • 00:10:00.110 --> 00:10:01.130
  • But on the seventh day,
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:02.150
  • God rested.
  • 00:10:02.150 --> 00:10:04.090
  • That's the first mention of
  • 00:10:04.090 --> 00:10:05.030
  • seven.
  • 00:10:05.030 --> 00:10:05.250
  • In other words, seven can be
  • 00:10:05.250 --> 00:10:06.180
  • perfection, but we know from his
  • 00:10:06.180 --> 00:10:08.020
  • hair it cannot be perfection
  • 00:10:08.020 --> 00:10:09.020
  • because he wasn't perfect.
  • 00:10:09.020 --> 00:10:10.170
  • So, it isn't a separation unto
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:12.080
  • perfection, it's a separation
  • 00:10:12.080 --> 00:10:13.150
  • unto rest.
  • 00:10:13.150 --> 00:10:15.020
  • And poor Samson, she put him
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:17.140
  • to sleep on her knees.
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:20.150
  • The Bible says she invited all
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:21.280
  • the Philistines into the room,
  • 00:10:21.280 --> 00:10:23.290
  • and they gave him the most
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:25.150
  • expensive haircut in history.
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:29.250
  • Hair today, gone tomorrow.
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:33.210
  • And then she shouted at him,
  • 00:10:33.270 --> 00:10:36.270
  • "Samson, the Philistines
  • 00:10:36.270 --> 00:10:37.260
  • are here."
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:39.020
  • He got up and says, "Okay, okay,
  • 00:10:39.020 --> 00:10:40.070
  • who's the first one, come on."
  • 00:10:40.070 --> 00:10:43.010
  • All right?
  • 00:10:43.010 --> 00:10:43.170
  • And when the first one came
  • 00:10:43.170 --> 00:10:44.090
  • and hit him, he fell.
  • 00:10:44.090 --> 00:10:45.270
  • He realized he wasn't strong
  • 00:10:45.270 --> 00:10:46.220
  • anymore.
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:47.200
  • He lost his rest.
  • 00:10:47.200 --> 00:10:48.280
  • They cut off his separation unto
  • 00:10:48.280 --> 00:10:50.240
  • rest.
  • 00:10:50.240 --> 00:10:52.080
  • Now he became ordinary because
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:54.130
  • rest is the secret.
  • 00:10:54.130 --> 00:10:55.290
  • And you know what they did to
  • 00:10:55.290 --> 00:10:56.170
  • Samson when they caught him?
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:57.270
  • They gouged out both his eyes.
  • 00:10:57.270 --> 00:10:59.290
  • And now he is blind.
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:02.210
  • When you lose your rest,
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:04.250
  • you lose your perspective,
  • 00:11:04.250 --> 00:11:07.180
  • you lose your vision.
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:09.140
  • Whenever I hear someone talking,
  • 00:11:09.140 --> 00:11:10.150
  • you know, for example, "You know

  • what, I think I need to work
  • 00:11:11.260 --> 00:11:13.020
  • overtime because it's really not
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:14.040
  • easy to have this.
  • 00:11:14.040 --> 00:11:15.050
  • You know, my children are having
  • 00:11:15.050 --> 00:11:16.010
  • special courses," I can
  • 00:11:16.010 --> 00:11:17.160
  • hear--when I hear that, I know
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:19.250
  • they have lost their
  • 00:11:19.250 --> 00:11:20.120
  • perspective.
  • 00:11:20.120 --> 00:11:21.190
  • Why?
  • 00:11:21.190 --> 00:11:22.040
  • They have lost their rest.
  • 00:11:22.040 --> 00:11:25.040
  • When Samson lost his rest,
  • 00:11:25.040 --> 00:11:27.090
  • he didn't just lose his vision,
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:29.030
  • his eyes, his perspective.
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:30.150
  • He lost all the rest.
  • 00:11:30.150 --> 00:11:33.100
  • He lost his freedom.
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:35.030
  • And he began to grind stone
  • 00:11:35.030 --> 00:11:37.200
  • round and round, all right,
  • 00:11:37.260 --> 00:11:40.260
  • in the grinding mill.
  • 00:11:40.260 --> 00:11:42.040
  • He can't even see where he's
  • 00:11:42.040 --> 00:11:43.010
  • going, just that.
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:44.110
  • He doesn't even know if it's
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:45.000
  • night or day, just going round
  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:46.020
  • and round and round.
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:48.020
  • But God is the God of
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:51.110
  • the second chance.
  • 00:11:51.110 --> 00:11:53.280
  • You might have failed.
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:55.020
  • Maybe right now, you are
  • 00:11:55.020 --> 00:11:56.010
  • deciding to break off that
  • 00:11:56.010 --> 00:11:57.020
  • immoral affair or that
  • 00:11:57.020 --> 00:11:59.070
  • relationship.
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:11:59.270
  • Praise be to God,
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:01.010
  • there is still hope.
  • 00:12:01.010 --> 00:12:03.020
  • There is still hope, amen?
  • 00:12:03.020 --> 00:12:04.190
  • Because the Bible says Samson's
  • 00:12:04.190 --> 00:12:06.030
  • hair began to grow.
  • 00:12:06.030 --> 00:12:07.290
  • Slowly, he began to enter into
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:08.220
  • rest once again.
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:10.030
  • Amen?
  • 00:12:10.030 --> 00:12:10.250
  • He could see nothing but
  • 00:12:10.250 --> 00:12:11.260
  • darkness, and he began to think
  • 00:12:11.260 --> 00:12:13.060
  • about all that God has called
  • 00:12:13.060 --> 00:12:14.270
  • him to become.
  • 00:12:14.270 --> 00:12:16.020
  • And God is merciful.
  • 00:12:16.020 --> 00:12:18.140
  • I said God is merciful.
  • 00:12:18.140 --> 00:12:20.020
  • convention, Philistine
  • 00:12:22.030 --> 00:12:23.110
  • convention, where all the VIPs
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:26.040
  • of the Philistines, the
  • 00:12:26.040 --> 00:12:27.120
  • admirals, the generals all came.
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:30.150
  • And you know who's the guest of
  • 00:12:30.150 --> 00:12:31.040
  • honor?
  • 00:12:31.040 --> 00:12:31.220
  • Delilah because she delivered
  • 00:12:31.220 --> 00:12:34.150
  • Samson into their hands.
  • 00:12:34.150 --> 00:12:36.100
  • And the cry came, "Bring Samson
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:38.180
  • out for all of us to see," this
  • 00:12:38.180 --> 00:12:40.150
  • man who struck terror in
  • 00:12:40.150 --> 00:12:42.080
  • the hearts of the VIPs of
  • 00:12:42.080 --> 00:12:43.240
  • the Philistines,
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:45.260
  • "Let's bring him out.
  • 00:12:45.260 --> 00:12:46.150
  • Let's make fun of him.
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:47.110
  • Let's make sport of him,"
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:48.120
  • the Bible says.
  • 00:12:48.120 --> 00:12:50.190
  • And the Bible tells us that
  • 00:12:50.190 --> 00:12:51.220
  • for yourself.
  • 00:12:54.020 --> 00:12:55.090
  • Judges 16, "Samson said to the
  • 00:12:55.090 --> 00:12:57.040
  • lad who held him by the hand,
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:58.290
  • 'Let me feel the pillars which
  • 00:12:58.290 --> 00:13:00.140
  • support the temple, so that I
  • 00:13:00.140 --> 00:13:02.000
  • can lean on them.'"
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:03.090
  • And you can read
  • 00:13:03.090 --> 00:13:04.250
  • his prayer in your own
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:06.030
  • private time, but he prayed to
  • 00:13:06.030 --> 00:13:07.230
  • God to strengthen him once again
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:09.080
  • between the pillars.
  • 00:13:09.080 --> 00:13:10.000
  • And let's read on from there,
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:11.200
  • "Samson took hold of
  • 00:13:11.200 --> 00:13:12.130
  • the two middle pillars which
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:13.190
  • supported the temple,
  • 00:13:13.190 --> 00:13:15.050
  • and he braced himself
  • 00:13:15.050 --> 00:13:16.040
  • against them, one on his right,
  • 00:13:16.040 --> 00:13:18.130
  • and the other on his left.
  • 00:13:18.130 --> 00:13:20.010
  • Then Samson said, 'Let me die
  • 00:13:20.010 --> 00:13:21.150
  • with the Philistines!'
  • 00:13:21.150 --> 00:13:22.190
  • He pushed with all his might,
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:24.040
  • and the temple fell on the lords
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:25.260
  • and all the people who were
  • 00:13:25.260 --> 00:13:26.270
  • in it.
  • 00:13:26.270 --> 00:13:27.170
  • So the dead that he killed at
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:28.270
  • his death were more than he had
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:31.000
  • And I'm going to close with this
  • 00:13:33.030 --> 00:13:33.250
  • one thought.
  • 00:13:33.250 --> 00:13:35.220
  • Where is the area the devil
  • 00:13:36.070 --> 00:13:39.070
  • first brings restlessness
  • 00:13:39.070 --> 00:13:40.240
  • and unrest?
  • 00:13:40.240 --> 00:13:42.240
  • I'm going to cover the area the
  • 00:13:42.240 --> 00:13:43.250
  • devil is coming to attack you so
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:45.150
  • you can cover that area, okay?
  • 00:13:45.150 --> 00:13:47.050
  • Now, if you're not saved,
  • 00:13:47.050 --> 00:13:48.080
  • that's not your first area.
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:49.150
  • If you're not saved, you're not
  • 00:13:49.150 --> 00:13:50.200
  • a believer, your first area is
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:52.110
  • rest in your conscience.
  • 00:13:52.110 --> 00:13:55.050
  • And that's why some people don't
  • 00:13:55.050 --> 00:13:57.050
  • like to be in church because
  • 00:13:57.050 --> 00:13:58.070
  • when they are in church, they
  • 00:13:58.070 --> 00:13:59.110
  • have sin on their conscience.
  • 00:13:59.110 --> 00:14:01.170
  • But when God opens their eyes
  • 00:14:01.170 --> 00:14:03.010
  • and they see that Jesus Christ
  • 00:14:03.010 --> 00:14:04.110
  • at the cross has taken away
  • 00:14:04.110 --> 00:14:06.000
  • all their sins, the sin on
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:07.200
  • the conscience is removed.
  • 00:14:07.200 --> 00:14:10.000
  • Amen?
  • 00:14:10.000 --> 00:14:10.290
  • Like all of us.
  • 00:14:10.290 --> 00:14:12.100
  • But for believers, the very
  • 00:14:12.100 --> 00:14:13.280
  • first area the devil attacks
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:15.100
  • you, all right, is in your mind.
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:21.040
  • This is the area.
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:22.070
  • Are you listening, people?
  • 00:14:22.070 --> 00:14:23.060
  • This is the area he attacks you
  • 00:14:23.060 --> 00:14:25.090
  • to bring unrest.
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:27.030
  • This is the area you must guard,
  • 00:14:27.030 --> 00:14:28.120
  • your thought life.
  • 00:14:28.120 --> 00:14:29.110
  • Let me show you the priests
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:29.280
  • The Bible says in Ezekiel 44,
  • 00:14:31.290 --> 00:14:33.010
  • "It shall be, when the priest
  • 00:14:33.010 --> 00:14:33.280
  • enters the gates of the temple,
  • 00:14:33.280 --> 00:14:35.130
  • of the inner court, that they
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:36.180
  • shall put on linen garments."
  • 00:14:36.180 --> 00:14:38.170
  • Say linen.
  • 00:14:38.170 --> 00:14:39.230
  • Why?
  • 00:14:39.230 --> 00:14:40.140
  • Linen is cool.
  • 00:14:40.140 --> 00:14:41.230
  • "No wool shall come on them,"
  • 00:14:41.230 --> 00:14:43.100
  • because wool causes sweat.
  • 00:14:43.100 --> 00:14:44.250
  • The Bible says in verse 18,
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:47.010
  • "They shall have," what?
  • 00:14:47.010 --> 00:14:47.270
  • Where is the first area God
  • 00:14:47.270 --> 00:14:48.270
  • mentioned?
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:50.010
  • Of all the linen garments, where
  • 00:14:50.010 --> 00:14:51.030
  • is the first area God mentioned?
  • 00:14:51.030 --> 00:14:52.180
  • Linen turbans.
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:54.250
  • They must have a cool head.
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:14:56.020
  • God wants his people to have hot
  • 00:14:56.020 --> 00:14:57.200
  • hearts, cool heads.
  • 00:14:57.240 --> 00:15:00.260
  • Burning hearts, cool heads.
  • 00:15:00.260 --> 00:15:03.170
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:15:03.170 --> 00:15:04.280
  • That's the first area.
  • 00:15:04.280 --> 00:15:06.040
  • Then God says his priests must
  • 00:15:06.040 --> 00:15:07.270
  • not clothe themselves with
  • 00:15:07.270 --> 00:15:09.030
  • God doesn't want you to sweat
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:12.280
  • for your blessings.
  • 00:15:12.280 --> 00:15:13.260
  • Don't sweat for your healing.
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:15.110
  • Don't sweat for your prosperity.
  • 00:15:15.110 --> 00:15:17.060
  • Don't sweat it because sweat
  • 00:15:17.060 --> 00:15:18.160
  • came because of Adam's fall.
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:21.210
  • Work is not a curse,
  • 00:15:21.210 --> 00:15:23.010
  • work is a gift.
  • 00:15:23.010 --> 00:15:24.080
  • Some people say ow.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.020
  • Yeah, it's a gift.
  • 00:15:26.020 --> 00:15:27.100
  • You see, God gave work to Adam
  • 00:15:27.100 --> 00:15:29.160
  • before he fell, but the curse
  • 00:15:29.160 --> 00:15:31.100
  • is, "By the sweat of your face,
  • 00:15:31.100 --> 00:15:33.250
  • you will eat bread."
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:34.280
  • That means what?
  • 00:15:34.280 --> 00:15:35.200
  • It will be hard for you to have
  • 00:15:35.200 --> 00:15:36.290
  • prosperity.
  • 00:15:36.290 --> 00:15:37.230
  • It will be hard to eat bread.
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:39.010
  • It will be hard.
  • 00:15:39.010 --> 00:15:39.230
  • By the sweat of your face, by
  • 00:15:39.230 --> 00:15:40.260
  • stress, by hard work, by all the
  • 00:15:40.260 --> 00:15:42.110
  • time, then you will only still
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:44.100
  • get a little.
  • 00:15:44.100 --> 00:15:45.200
  • That's the curse.
  • 00:15:45.200 --> 00:15:46.130
  • But Jesus Christ came,
  • 00:15:46.130 --> 00:15:47.200
  • hallelujah, and where is
  • 00:15:47.200 --> 00:15:48.180
  • the first area--what is
  • 00:15:48.180 --> 00:15:50.050
  • the beginning of his suffering?
  • 00:15:50.050 --> 00:15:51.190
  • Which area did he shed blood
  • 00:15:51.190 --> 00:15:53.090
  • first?
  • 00:15:53.090 --> 00:15:54.190
  • In his head in another garden.
  • 00:15:55.010 --> 00:15:58.010
  • What began in a garden was
  • 00:15:58.010 --> 00:15:59.060
  • finished in another garden.
  • 00:15:59.060 --> 00:16:01.050
  • What came about by
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:03.020
  • the first Adam was put aside by
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:05.290
  • the last Adam.
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:08.050
  • Because in the garden of
  • 00:16:08.050 --> 00:16:08.280
  • for the first time,
  • 00:16:11.130 --> 00:16:12.150
  • the beginning of his sufferings.
  • 00:16:12.150 --> 00:16:13.260
  • That tells us the first area he
  • 00:16:13.260 --> 00:16:15.110
  • wants to bring rest is in your
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:17.030
  • mind.
  • 00:16:17.030 --> 00:16:18.120
  • Because there's a redeeming
  • 00:16:18.120 --> 00:16:19.050
  • quality to his blood.
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:20.130
  • When he sweat blood, he redeemed
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:21.260
  • all of us from Adam's Edenic
  • 00:16:21.260 --> 00:16:24.100
  • curse of sweat.
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:26.080
  • Now church, listen.
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:29.040
  • I want to close with this,
  • 00:16:29.040 --> 00:16:30.020
  • this is important.
  • 00:16:30.020 --> 00:16:30.260
  • Jesus said of all the areas, all
  • 00:16:30.260 --> 00:16:32.080
  • right, he says don't worry, take
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:34.190
  • no thought for your life, what
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:36.150
  • you shall eat, what you shall
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:37.220
  • drink, what you shall be
  • 00:16:37.220 --> 00:16:39.020
  • clothed with.
  • 00:16:39.020 --> 00:16:40.060
  • Here, look at the birds of the
  • 00:16:40.060 --> 00:16:41.020
  • air, they sow not, neither
  • 00:16:41.020 --> 00:16:42.220
  • do they reap.
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:44.130
  • They don't even have POSB,
  • 00:16:44.130 --> 00:16:45.270
  • savings account.
  • 00:16:45.270 --> 00:16:46.200
  • Your heavenly Father feeds them.
  • 00:16:46.200 --> 00:16:48.120
  • Are you not much better than
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:49.150
  • the birds?
  • 00:16:49.150 --> 00:16:50.250
  • He says don't worry about
  • 00:16:50.250 --> 00:16:51.220
  • clothing.
  • 00:16:51.220 --> 00:16:52.160
  • He says look at the lilies of
  • 00:16:52.160 --> 00:16:53.290
  • the field, how they grow.
  • 00:16:53.290 --> 00:16:56.140
  • They toil not, neither do they
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:58.010
  • spin, and yet Solomon in all his
  • 00:16:58.010 --> 00:17:00.140
  • glory was not arrayed like
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:02.130
  • one of this.
  • 00:17:02.130 --> 00:17:03.170
  • Hey, my friends, little flock,
  • 00:17:03.170 --> 00:17:05.190
  • if your Father in heaven cares
  • 00:17:05.190 --> 00:17:07.270
  • to clothe the lily of the field
  • 00:17:07.270 --> 00:17:09.290
  • better than Solomon in all his
  • 00:17:09.290 --> 00:17:11.210
  • glory, and today they are here,
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:14.000
  • tomorrow the sun comes out, they
  • 00:17:14.000 --> 00:17:15.100
  • are dead, how much more will
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:17.130
  • your Father clothe you?
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:20.030
  • Now, now, wait, wait, then Jesus
  • 00:17:20.030 --> 00:17:23.020
  • says, "Take no thought
  • 00:17:23.020 --> 00:17:24.250
  • therefore, saying--"
  • 00:17:25.030 --> 00:17:28.030
  • Now, how do you
  • 00:17:28.030 --> 00:17:28.180
  • get into a life of worry?
  • 00:17:28.180 --> 00:17:31.010
  • The devil shoots thoughts into
  • 00:17:31.010 --> 00:17:32.080
  • your head.
  • 00:17:32.080 --> 00:17:32.290
  • Jesus says don't take
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:34.050
  • the thoughts.
  • 00:17:34.050 --> 00:17:34.260
  • How do you not take
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:35.250
  • the thoughts?
  • 00:17:35.250 --> 00:17:36.110
  • Don't say it.
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:37.170
  • "Take no thought, saying,
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:39.160
  • 'What shall we eat?
  • 00:17:39.160 --> 00:17:40.150
  • What shall we drink?'"
  • 00:17:40.150 --> 00:17:41.040
  • When bad thoughts
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:41.250
  • come to you, when worrisome
  • 00:17:41.250 --> 00:17:43.060
  • thoughts enter your mind,
  • 00:17:43.060 --> 00:17:45.000
  • don't say it, and it will
  • 00:17:45.000 --> 00:17:46.230
  • die unborn, amen?
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:49.230
  • You can have bad thoughts about
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:50.160
  • me, but don't say it,
  • 00:17:50.160 --> 00:17:51.210
  • it's not true anyway.
  • 00:17:51.210 --> 00:17:54.040
  • Amen?
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:55.070
  • Praise the Lord.
  • 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:58.130
  • Now, I'll close with this,
  • 00:17:58.130 --> 00:17:59.130
  • listen carefully.
  • 00:17:59.130 --> 00:18:00.130
  • The first area is your mind.
  • 00:18:00.130 --> 00:18:01.240
  • But we say, "But Pastor Prince,
  • 00:18:01.240 --> 00:18:03.030
  • how do we get to come to this
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:06.120
  • place where we have rest
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:07.120
  • in our minds?"
  • 00:18:07.120 --> 00:18:08.000
  • Would you like to know?
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:08.270
  • I was preparing this message,
  • 00:18:08.270 --> 00:18:11.010
  • the Lord began to speak to me.
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:12.050
  • And the Lord says something that
  • 00:18:12.050 --> 00:18:13.150
  • I said before, but not exactly
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:14.140
  • in the same way.
  • 00:18:14.140 --> 00:18:15.120
  • You know that Jesus wore the
  • 00:18:15.120 --> 00:18:16.220
  • crown of thorns on our behalf?
  • 00:18:16.220 --> 00:18:19.180
  • And thorns in the parable of
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:20.170
  • the sower is talking about
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:22.000
  • worries and cares.
  • 00:18:22.150 --> 00:18:25.150
  • Now, thorns represent what?
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:27.070
  • Worries, restlessness, cares.
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:30.130
  • A thorn is actually a leaf that
  • 00:18:32.080 --> 00:18:35.080
  • has curled itself, closed itself
  • 00:18:35.080 --> 00:18:37.180
  • You know why they curl up and
  • 00:18:40.030 --> 00:18:40.210
  • they become so tight, a thorn?
  • 00:18:40.210 --> 00:18:42.190
  • To conserve as much water
  • 00:18:42.190 --> 00:18:45.040
  • as possible.
  • 00:18:45.040 --> 00:18:46.170
  • Now, what is the water?
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:48.100
  • The Word of God.
  • 00:18:48.100 --> 00:18:50.090
  • What are thorns?
  • 00:18:50.090 --> 00:18:51.180
  • Worries and cares, like a crown
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:53.180
  • on your head, which Jesus took.
  • 00:18:53.180 --> 00:18:56.010
  • Listen carefully.
  • 00:18:56.010 --> 00:18:57.020
  • I'm going to show you
  • 00:18:57.020 --> 00:18:57.260
  • the effortless way to get rid of
  • 00:18:57.260 --> 00:18:59.270
  • fears and worries from your
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:02.000
  • thought life.
  • 00:19:02.000 --> 00:19:03.140
  • Get under anointed teaching
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:10.000
  • and preaching.
  • 00:19:10.000 --> 00:19:11.210
  • Read books that are anointed,
  • 00:19:11.210 --> 00:19:13.150
  • anointed Word of Christ.
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:15.100
  • Listen to sermons that bring
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:16.190
  • forth Jesus Christ, that is
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:18.240
  • the water of the Spirit,
  • 00:19:18.240 --> 00:19:20.070
  • the anointed Word.
  • 00:19:20.070 --> 00:19:21.150
  • Because I'm telling you you
  • 00:19:21.150 --> 00:19:23.070
  • cannot reason away bad thoughts,
  • 00:19:23.070 --> 00:19:25.130
  • but you can replace them.
  • 00:19:25.130 --> 00:19:27.260
  • When you receive God's thoughts,
  • 00:19:27.260 --> 00:19:29.160
  • it's more powerful than the
  • 00:19:29.160 --> 00:19:30.190
  • devil's thoughts of worry, amen.
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:33.160
  • And when you come under
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:34.080
  • the teaching of the Word,
  • 00:19:34.080 --> 00:19:35.070
  • the Word will start watering
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:36.170
  • all the thorns, all the thorns.
  • 00:19:36.170 --> 00:19:38.210
  • You know what's going to happen?
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:39.150
  • It will open up and start to
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:41.280
  • blossom with the flowers of
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:44.040
  • grace, and beauty, and peace
  • 00:19:44.280 --> 00:19:47.280
  • that is so aggressive, you don't
  • 00:19:47.280 --> 00:19:49.070
  • keep it, it keeps you.
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:52.120
  • Amen?
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:54.160
  • I pray that you have been
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:19:55.160
  • blessed by the life of Samson,
  • 00:19:55.250 --> 00:19:58.250
  • what we can learn from it.
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:20:00.090
  • It's a sad story, I know, but
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:01.260
  • God put it there for all of us
  • 00:20:01.260 --> 00:20:03.070
  • to learn.
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:04.090
  • Amen?
  • 00:20:04.090 --> 00:20:04.240
  • I'm going to pray for all of you
  • 00:20:04.240 --> 00:20:05.150
  • that you be delivered from
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:06.150
  • the spirit of rejection.
  • 00:20:06.150 --> 00:20:08.130
  • Because when that spirit is out
  • 00:20:08.130 --> 00:20:09.240
  • of your life, amen, the spirit
  • 00:20:09.240 --> 00:20:11.230
  • of lust will also be removed.
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:13.250
  • Father, in the mighty name of
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:14.250
  • Jesus Christ, I come against
  • 00:20:14.250 --> 00:20:16.250
  • every foul spirit of rejection,
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:19.100
  • every demonic force of lust.
  • 00:20:19.110 --> 00:20:22.110
  • I come against every one
  • 00:20:22.110 --> 00:20:23.250
  • of them.
  • 00:20:23.250 --> 00:20:24.210
  • I come against the spirits of
  • 00:20:24.210 --> 00:20:25.280
  • pornography.
  • 00:20:25.280 --> 00:20:27.010
  • I come against every adulterous
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:29.020
  • spirit in the name of
  • 00:20:29.020 --> 00:20:31.090
  • the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:32.290
  • And by his shed blood, I take
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:34.270
  • authority over every one of
  • 00:20:34.270 --> 00:20:36.200
  • these foul spirits, and I come
  • 00:20:36.200 --> 00:20:39.100
  • against the spirit of an orphan.
  • 00:20:39.100 --> 00:20:41.050
  • I come against them in the name
  • 00:20:41.050 --> 00:20:42.180
  • of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:44.170
  • And I command every one of them
  • 00:20:44.170 --> 00:20:47.010
  • let God's people go, and be
  • 00:20:47.060 --> 00:20:50.060
  • bound from their lives in
  • 00:20:50.060 --> 00:20:52.010
  • the mighty name of
  • 00:20:52.010 --> 00:20:53.260
  • the Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:20:53.260 --> 00:20:55.140
  • and by his blood.
  • 00:20:55.140 --> 00:20:57.120
  • Amen.
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:58.090
  • Holy Spirit, sweep through
  • 00:20:58.090 --> 00:20:59.270
  • this place, sweep through
  • 00:20:59.270 --> 00:21:01.070
  • the overflow rooms,
  • 00:21:01.070 --> 00:21:02.170
  • set your people free.
  • 00:21:02.170 --> 00:21:03.290
  • Be free, be free.
  • 00:21:04.020 --> 00:21:07.020
  • Every curse reversed, every
  • 00:21:07.020 --> 00:21:09.000
  • generational curse destroyed
  • 00:21:09.000 --> 00:21:10.140
  • by the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:21:10.140 --> 00:21:13.060
  • You have a new inheritance.
  • 00:21:13.060 --> 00:21:15.020
  • You have a new inheritance.
  • 00:21:15.020 --> 00:21:17.260
  • It's from Abraham.
  • 00:21:17.260 --> 00:21:19.120
  • No more from your earthly
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:20.150
  • father.
  • 00:21:20.150 --> 00:21:21.160
  • Whatever habits he had, whatever
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:23.090
  • diseases he possessed will not
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:25.040
  • come into you.
  • 00:21:25.040 --> 00:21:26.130
  • It is finished, it's cut off.
  • 00:21:26.130 --> 00:21:27.280
  • You are free from every
  • 00:21:27.280 --> 00:21:29.100
  • generational curse.
  • 00:21:29.100 --> 00:21:30.220
  • You have the blessing of
  • 00:21:30.220 --> 00:21:31.210
  • Abraham.
  • 00:21:31.210 --> 00:21:32.180
  • You have the heavenly Father's
  • 00:21:32.180 --> 00:21:33.290
  • genes on the inside of you, and
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:35.220
  • you are a new creation.
  • 00:21:35.220 --> 00:21:36.240
  • Old things have passed away, all
  • 00:21:36.240 --> 00:21:38.030
  • things have become new in Jesus'
  • 00:21:38.030 --> 00:21:40.280
  • mighty name.
  • 00:21:40.280 --> 00:21:42.050
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:44.060
  • Now, lift your hands all across
  • 00:21:44.060 --> 00:21:45.100
  • this place.
  • 00:21:45.100 --> 00:21:46.170
  • I want to pray for you right now
  • 00:21:46.170 --> 00:21:48.050
  • that a spirit of an orphan will
  • 00:21:48.050 --> 00:21:49.250
  • be removed off your life.
  • 00:21:49.250 --> 00:21:51.140
  • If you had an absentee father,
  • 00:21:51.140 --> 00:21:53.160
  • perhaps physically he's not
  • 00:21:53.160 --> 00:21:55.020
  • there.
  • 00:21:55.020 --> 00:21:55.270
  • Perhaps he was there physically,
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:58.200
  • but he wasn't there for you.
  • 00:21:59.010 --> 00:22:02.030
  • You never received the affirming
  • 00:22:02.030 --> 00:22:03.250
  • word.
  • 00:22:03.250 --> 00:22:04.190
  • Perhaps you have a father who
  • 00:22:04.190 --> 00:22:05.190
  • was silent, weak and silent,
  • 00:22:05.210 --> 00:22:08.210
  • not strong and silent, weak
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:09.210
  • and silent.
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:11.270
  • Well, you know what?
  • 00:22:11.270 --> 00:22:12.250
  • You don't have to perpetuate the
  • 00:22:12.250 --> 00:22:14.120
  • curse to the next generation.
