  • be humble before God.
  • 00:02:02.020 --> 00:02:03.240
  • You know, when you put yourself
  • 00:02:03.240 --> 00:02:05.090
  • down before God, down, a person
  • 00:02:05.090 --> 00:02:07.280
  • who is down needs fear no fall.
  • 00:02:09.280 --> 00:02:12.280
  • But the higher up you put
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:15.080
  • yourself--now God put you high,
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:17.020
  • no problem.
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:17.260
  • If God put you up,
  • 00:02:17.260 --> 00:02:19.050
  • God will hold you.
  • 00:02:19.050 --> 00:02:20.100
  • But God doesn't want
  • 00:02:20.100 --> 00:02:21.070
  • you to put yourself up.
  • 00:02:21.070 --> 00:02:22.270
  • If you put yourself up and
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:25.160
  • you fall, the higher you are,
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:27.290
  • the greater the fall.
  • 00:02:27.290 --> 00:02:29.140
  • So, you know what?
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:30.140
  • Before anything happens,
  • 00:02:30.140 --> 00:02:31.200
  • go down, stay down because
  • 00:02:31.290 --> 00:02:34.290
  • he who is down fears no fall.
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:38.250
  • And wait for God to
  • 00:02:38.250 --> 00:02:40.030
  • raise you up.
  • 00:02:40.030 --> 00:02:41.240
  • See, at the end of the day,
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:42.280
  • I need not even fear my critics.
  • 00:02:42.280 --> 00:02:45.100
  • Those who say, "Well, I don't
  • 00:02:45.100 --> 00:02:47.000
  • believe what you preach," you
  • 00:02:47.000 --> 00:02:48.060
  • know, or those who come against
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:49.180
  • grace, you know, sometimes
  • 00:02:49.180 --> 00:02:50.220
  • people around me are more
  • 00:02:50.220 --> 00:02:51.140
  • concerned than I am.
  • 00:02:51.140 --> 00:02:52.170
  • I'm not concerned because, at
  • 00:02:52.170 --> 00:02:53.170
  • the end of the day, it's whether
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:54.230
  • the Most High give weight
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:56.240
  • You can blog all you want,
  • 00:02:58.260 --> 00:02:59.290
  • you can write all you want,
  • 00:02:59.290 --> 00:03:01.020
  • but at the end of the day,
  • 00:03:01.020 --> 00:03:02.010
  • do your words stick?
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:05.000
  • If God gives weight to my mouth
  • 00:03:05.000 --> 00:03:07.260
  • that when I speak, lives are
  • 00:03:07.260 --> 00:03:09.080
  • transformed not just within
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:10.220
  • the church, but millions around
  • 00:03:10.220 --> 00:03:12.240
  • weight, why should I lend
  • 00:03:15.010 --> 00:03:16.260
  • the critic my weight
  • 00:03:16.260 --> 00:03:19.100
  • by addressing his problem?
  • 00:03:19.110 --> 00:03:22.110
  • He needs my weight.
  • 00:03:22.110 --> 00:03:24.160
  • So, at the end of the day,
  • 00:03:24.160 --> 00:03:25.260
  • if you speak all you want,
  • 00:03:25.260 --> 00:03:27.230
  • but God makes your words fall to
  • 00:03:27.230 --> 00:03:29.020
  • the ground, why need we worry?
  • 00:03:29.160 --> 00:03:32.160
  • Sometimes when we address
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:34.200
  • our critic, it's us
  • 00:03:34.200 --> 00:03:36.140
  • who give them credibility.
  • 00:03:36.280 --> 00:03:39.280
  • So, I don't want to address.
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:41.070
  • For me, I just focus on Jesus.
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:43.190
  • Amen?
  • 00:03:43.190 --> 00:03:45.060
  • If God doesn't make my words
  • 00:03:45.060 --> 00:03:46.200
  • stick, God doesn't give
  • 00:03:46.200 --> 00:03:47.290
  • weightiness to my words,
  • 00:03:47.290 --> 00:03:49.150
  • then what can I do?
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:51.220
  • Amen, I need him.
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:54.010
  • Joseph Prince never got to where
  • 00:03:54.010 --> 00:03:55.270
  • he is today because of
  • 00:03:55.270 --> 00:03:56.280
  • Joseph Prince.
  • 00:03:56.280 --> 00:03:58.170
  • Joseph Prince in and of himself
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:04:00.060
  • is a stutterer and a stammerer.
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:02.290
  • Amen, everything he has
  • 00:04:02.290 --> 00:04:04.180
  • is the grace of God.
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:07.020
  • And I am one who preaches
  • 00:04:07.020 --> 00:04:08.090
  • the grace of God,
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:09.220
  • and I believe it.
  • 00:04:09.220 --> 00:04:10.280
  • Can I have a good amen?
  • 00:04:10.280 --> 00:04:12.060
  • So again, back to this again.
  • 00:04:12.060 --> 00:04:13.290
  • Don't clap, you'll take my time.
  • 00:04:13.290 --> 00:04:14.290
  • Listen, all right, Genesis 14.
  • 00:04:14.290 --> 00:04:17.030
  • All right, back to Genesis 14.
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:21.140
  • Melchizedek meeting Abraham,
  • 00:04:21.140 --> 00:04:24.070
  • and be brought bread and wine.
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:27.020
  • "Then Melchizedek blessed
  • 00:04:27.020 --> 00:04:28.250
  • Abraham and said,
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:29.200
  • 'Blessed be Abram,'"
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:31.020
  • you can put your name there.
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:31.260
  • Blessed be Mary.
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:33.010
  • Blessed be Josephine.
  • 00:04:33.010 --> 00:04:35.100
  • Blessed be John.
  • 00:04:35.100 --> 00:04:36.210
  • Blessed be whatever your name
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:38.110
  • is, okay?
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:39.090
  • "Of God Most High,"
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:40.160
  • that's El Elyon,
  • 00:04:40.160 --> 00:04:42.010
  • "possessor of heaven and earth."
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:44.030
  • You know what's possessor
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:44.260
  • of heaven and earth?
  • 00:04:44.260 --> 00:04:45.200
  • Listen, all the gold, all
  • 00:04:45.200 --> 00:04:47.200
  • the diamond, all the silver,
  • 00:04:47.200 --> 00:04:48.210
  • If God chooses to give it
  • 00:04:50.250 --> 00:04:52.110
  • to you, it will come to you.
  • 00:04:52.110 --> 00:04:54.150
  • You don't have to go to
  • 00:04:54.150 --> 00:04:55.090
  • a bookie.
  • 00:04:55.090 --> 00:04:56.160
  • You don't have to go
  • 00:04:56.160 --> 00:04:58.110
  • and play numbers.
  • 00:04:58.110 --> 00:05:00.130
  • It's the Most High God that
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.020
  • ruleth over the affairs of man.
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:03.090
  • And I'll tell you this.
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:05.040
  • The more humble you are, God
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:07.070
  • loves to give blessings
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:09.040
  • to people that are humble.
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:10.170
  • God gives grace to the humble.
  • 00:05:10.170 --> 00:05:12.260
  • In other words, water always
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:14.220
  • seeks the lowest level.
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:17.130
  • God's grace always
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:18.270
  • look for the lowest.
  • 00:05:18.270 --> 00:05:20.290
  • Jesus, who in the form of God,
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:23.110
  • of the Godhead,
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.140
  • he who's the possessor of heaven
  • 00:05:28.140 --> 00:05:30.020
  • and earth, he owns everything.
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:31.250
  • The Bible says he came down,
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:33.010
  • took upon himself
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:34.130
  • the form of a man.
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:35.200
  • Being found as a man, he went
  • 00:05:35.200 --> 00:05:37.210
  • down further as a servant.
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:40.030
  • Because there are
  • 00:05:40.030 --> 00:05:40.280
  • men who are kings.
  • 00:05:40.280 --> 00:05:42.040
  • He is a king that choose
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:43.200
  • to become a servant.
  • 00:05:43.200 --> 00:05:44.290
  • And as a servant,
  • 00:05:44.290 --> 00:05:45.240
  • he died a death.
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:47.270
  • But there are many forms
  • 00:05:47.270 --> 00:05:48.240
  • of death.
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:49.290
  • He chose the worst kind
  • 00:05:49.290 --> 00:05:50.270
  • of death.
  • 00:05:50.270 --> 00:05:51.290
  • He went down even further in
  • 00:05:51.290 --> 00:05:52.250
  • death, the death of the cross,
  • 00:05:52.250 --> 00:05:53.270
  • to save all of us.
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:55.050
  • Because of these seven steps
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:56.040
  • down, God raised him.
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:57.250
  • Every step that he went down,
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:59.080
  • God raised him.
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:00.040
  • And God has exalted him, and
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:01.170
  • given him a name, a name which
  • 00:06:01.170 --> 00:06:04.130
  • is above every name.
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:05.230
  • That at the name of Jesus,
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:07.040
  • every knee will bow.
  • 00:06:07.040 --> 00:06:08.000
  • Of things in heaven, angels.
  • 00:06:08.000 --> 00:06:09.130
  • Of things on earth, men.
  • 00:06:09.130 --> 00:06:11.120
  • Of things under the earth,
  • 00:06:11.120 --> 00:06:12.110
  • demons.
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:13.040
  • And every tongue confess
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.160
  • Jesus Christ is Lord.
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:17.200
  • For every step down that
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:19.130
  • you take, God will have
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:20.290
  • a step up for you.
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.120
  • Don't be proud.
  • 00:06:22.120 --> 00:06:23.180
  • There's nothing for mere men,
  • 00:06:23.180 --> 00:06:25.290
  • whose breath is in his nostrils,
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:28.040
  • to be proud.
  • 00:06:28.040 --> 00:06:30.110
  • There's nothing to be proud.
  • 00:06:30.200 --> 00:06:33.200
  • Our thoughts are full of sin.
  • 00:06:36.070 --> 00:06:39.070
  • And yet, we say, "Based on my
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:40.200
  • reasoning, we stand in judgment
  • 00:06:40.200 --> 00:06:43.100
  • of the Bible," when we should
  • 00:06:43.100 --> 00:06:44.290
  • allow ourselves to be judged by
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:46.150
  • the Bible, and allow the light
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:48.230
  • to shine in.
  • 00:06:48.230 --> 00:06:50.000
  • And thank God for the Bible.
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:51.260
  • Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:53.130
  • Can I have a good amen?
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:57.040
  • All right?
  • 00:06:57.040 --> 00:06:57.220
  • So, this is Genesis 14.
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:06:59.080
  • It tells you clearly the Most
  • 00:06:59.080 --> 00:07:00.230
  • High God is the possessor of
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:02.210
  • heaven and earth.
  • 00:07:02.210 --> 00:07:03.260
  • no king, no president, no one
  • 00:07:06.060 --> 00:07:08.190
  • on earth possesses heaven
  • 00:07:08.190 --> 00:07:10.140
  • and earth.
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:11.160
  • Many have tried.
  • 00:07:11.160 --> 00:07:12.290
  • Nebuchadnezzar tried.
  • 00:07:12.290 --> 00:07:14.070
  • Napoleon tried.
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:15.240
  • Hitler tried.
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:17.270
  • At the end, there will be one
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:19.140
  • that will come whose scepter
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:21.140
  • is a scepter of righteousness.
  • 00:07:21.140 --> 00:07:23.060
  • With righteousness will he judge
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:25.000
  • and execute justice for
  • 00:07:25.010 --> 00:07:28.010
  • the poor, the Bible says.
  • 00:07:28.010 --> 00:07:29.210
  • His name is Jesus Christ,
  • 00:07:29.210 --> 00:07:31.170
  • and he will reign on earth
  • 00:07:31.170 --> 00:07:33.170
  • whose right it is to rule.
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:36.140
  • But his reign
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:38.050
  • is not dictatorial.
  • 00:07:38.050 --> 00:07:39.140
  • His reign will be with love.
  • 00:07:39.140 --> 00:07:42.000
  • His reign will be supplying
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:43.110
  • all their needs.
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:44.170
  • They saw samples of his reign
  • 00:07:44.170 --> 00:07:46.040
  • when he was walking
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:47.000
  • on earth as king of Israel.
  • 00:07:47.000 --> 00:07:48.150
  • They had five loaves
  • 00:07:48.150 --> 00:07:49.170
  • and two fish.
  • 00:07:49.170 --> 00:07:50.120
  • He multiplied with--into
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:52.070
  • 12 basketsful left over after
  • 00:07:52.070 --> 00:07:54.050
  • the men and women and children
  • 00:07:54.050 --> 00:07:55.110
  • were filled.
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.050
  • Amen?
  • 00:07:56.050 --> 00:07:57.110
  • He was Lord over the waters,
  • 00:07:57.110 --> 00:07:59.030
  • and the sea, and the storm.
  • 00:07:59.030 --> 00:08:00.240
  • Everything obeys him.
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:02.110
  • He passed by the six vessels of
  • 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:06.040
  • water, and the waters blush
  • 00:08:06.040 --> 00:08:07.150
  • into wine.
  • 00:08:07.150 --> 00:08:09.020
  • Amen, everything about the world
  • 00:08:09.020 --> 00:08:11.010
  • recognized the master
  • 00:08:11.010 --> 00:08:12.130
  • when he comes except men.
  • 00:08:12.130 --> 00:08:14.100
  • And the Bible says he came unto
  • 00:08:14.100 --> 00:08:15.290
  • his own, and the own there is
  • 00:08:15.290 --> 00:08:16.290
  • the own things that he created.
  • 00:08:16.290 --> 00:08:19.030
  • They recognized him,
  • 00:08:19.030 --> 00:08:20.210
  • but he came unto his own people,
  • 00:08:20.210 --> 00:08:22.000
  • they didn't recognize him.
  • 00:08:22.000 --> 00:08:23.190
  • And the Bible says, "But as many
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:25.050
  • as received him, to them gave he
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:27.070
  • power to become sons of God."
  • 00:08:27.090 --> 00:08:30.090
  • Amen, church?
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:31.290
  • It takes humility to receive
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.080
  • Jesus by saying, "I'm a sinner.
  • 00:08:33.080 --> 00:08:35.060
  • I cannot save myself."
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:37.030
  • That takes humility.
  • 00:08:37.030 --> 00:08:38.100
  • And for that, you receive Jesus,
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:40.170
  • everything when you receive him.
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:44.240
  • Amen?
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:46.140
  • Okay, so the secret is this.
  • 00:08:46.140 --> 00:08:48.210
  • If we can find out--okay,
  • 00:08:48.210 --> 00:08:50.290
  • "Blessed be God Most High,"
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:52.040
  • again El Elyon.
  • 00:08:52.040 --> 00:08:53.220
  • So, he blessed Abraham of God
  • 00:08:53.220 --> 00:08:55.090
  • Most High, and now be blessed be
  • 00:08:55.090 --> 00:08:57.020
  • God Most High himself, El Elyon,
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:08:59.160
  • "Who has delivered your enemies
  • 00:08:59.160 --> 00:09:00.260
  • into your hand.
  • 00:09:00.260 --> 00:09:02.010
  • And he gave him a tithe of all."
  • 00:09:03.100 --> 00:09:06.100
  • He gave him a tithe of all.
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:07.280
  • So, notice in one passage where
  • 00:09:07.280 --> 00:09:09.250
  • El Elyon, God Most High, appears
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:12.190
  • for the first time,
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:14.060
  • the Lord's Supper, communion,
  • 00:09:14.060 --> 00:09:15.270
  • and tithing is mentioned.
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:20.100
  • Wow.
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:23.010
  • That's why this is before
  • 00:09:23.010 --> 00:09:24.130
  • the law.
  • 00:09:24.130 --> 00:09:25.220
  • And there's some preachers of
  • 00:09:25.220 --> 00:09:26.120
  • grace that say you don't have to
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:27.250
  • tithe.
  • 00:09:27.250 --> 00:09:28.210
  • You know, you don't have to.
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:29.230
  • And they don't understand that
  • 00:09:29.230 --> 00:09:30.190
  • it's not part of the law.
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:32.020
  • It is before the law.
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:33.280
  • That's why it's not for
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:35.030
  • everybody, it's for those
  • 00:09:35.030 --> 00:09:36.030
  • with revelation.
  • 00:09:36.030 --> 00:09:37.040
  • If you don't want to tithe,
  • 00:09:37.040 --> 00:09:38.130
  • don't.
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:41.040
  • God will never force you
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:42.010
  • to tithe, amen.
  • 00:09:42.010 --> 00:09:44.220
  • Abraham tithed because he had
  • 00:09:44.220 --> 00:09:46.150
  • a revelation of how great
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:47.210
  • Melchizedek was.
  • 00:09:47.210 --> 00:09:49.150
  • So, Melchizedek brought what?
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:50.190
  • Bread and wine.
  • 00:09:50.190 --> 00:09:51.290
  • What does that do to you?
  • 00:09:51.290 --> 00:09:53.070
  • It gives you health.
  • 00:09:53.070 --> 00:09:55.070
  • Abraham responded with what?
  • 00:09:55.070 --> 00:09:57.140
  • Tithes.
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:09:58.190
  • What does that give to you?
  • 00:09:58.190 --> 00:10:00.160
  • Wealth.
  • 00:10:00.160 --> 00:10:02.010
  • "Oh, Pastor Prince, you are
  • 00:10:02.010 --> 00:10:03.150
  • the health and wealth gospel."
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:05.220
  • I don't know you are talking,
  • 00:10:05.220 --> 00:10:06.130
  • about health and wealth gospel.
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:08.010
  • I'm just telling you what the
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:08.200
  • Bible says.
  • 00:10:08.200 --> 00:10:10.070
  • Because the Bible says later on
  • 00:10:10.070 --> 00:10:11.260
  • in the same chapter,
  • 00:10:11.260 --> 00:10:14.010
  • Abraham says, "Lest you say
  • 00:10:14.010 --> 00:10:15.280
  • I made Abraham rich."
  • 00:10:15.280 --> 00:10:17.190
  • So, Abraham knew he was going
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:18.180
  • to be very rich.
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:19.250
  • However, we're going to
  • 00:10:19.250 --> 00:10:21.090
  • talk about wealth,
  • 00:10:21.090 --> 00:10:22.290
  • prosperity, or whatever.
  • 00:10:22.290 --> 00:10:24.040
  • I really think that prosperity
  • 00:10:24.200 --> 00:10:27.200
  • has been overemphasized
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:30.260
  • on Christian television.
  • 00:10:30.260 --> 00:10:33.230
  • I really think that.
  • 00:10:33.230 --> 00:10:35.100
  • And I don't blame the world for
  • 00:10:35.100 --> 00:10:36.100
  • thinking that anyone who preach
  • 00:10:36.100 --> 00:10:38.220
  • on abundance and
  • 00:10:38.220 --> 00:10:39.270
  • all that is preaching
  • 00:10:39.270 --> 00:10:40.280
  • that kind of prosperity.
  • 00:10:40.280 --> 00:10:41.250
  • Honestly, the greatest
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:43.030
  • prosperity is to know Jesus.
  • 00:10:43.030 --> 00:10:45.150
  • Amen.
  • 00:10:45.150 --> 00:10:46.240
  • And I think that we don't have
  • 00:10:46.240 --> 00:10:48.130
  • to manipulate people.
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:49.230
  • When people see how great
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:51.060
  • Melchizedek is, they will tithe.
  • 00:10:51.060 --> 00:10:53.120
  • All right, if they don't tithe,
  • 00:10:53.120 --> 00:10:55.050
  • it's because we have not shown
  • 00:10:55.050 --> 00:10:56.010
  • how great Melchizedek is.
  • 00:10:56.010 --> 00:10:57.180
  • We don't have to threaten people
  • 00:10:57.180 --> 00:10:58.180
  • to tithe.
  • 00:10:58.180 --> 00:10:59.180
  • Can I have a good amen?
  • 00:10:59.180 --> 00:11:01.000
  • If I got to tell my wife, I got
  • 00:11:01.000 --> 00:11:02.050
  • to threaten my wife to give me
  • 00:11:02.050 --> 00:11:03.050
  • a kiss, something is wrong,
  • 00:11:03.050 --> 00:11:05.030
  • deadly wrong in this
  • 00:11:05.030 --> 00:11:05.190
  • relationship.
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:06.150
  • Man, she can't help herself,
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:07.230
  • y'all.
  • 00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:08.210
  • She can't help herself.
  • 00:11:08.210 --> 00:11:09.260
  • I'm telling you, the moment
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:10.230
  • I walk into the room,
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:11.150
  • she is trembling.
  • 00:11:11.160 --> 00:11:14.160
  • Okay, not trembling of course,
  • 00:11:14.160 --> 00:11:15.190
  • okay, but--pastor,
  • 00:11:15.190 --> 00:11:17.200
  • be humble, be humble.
  • 00:11:17.200 --> 00:11:18.160
  • Okay, okay, okay,
  • 00:11:18.160 --> 00:11:19.120
  • praise the Lord.
  • 00:11:19.120 --> 00:11:20.080
  • You must know a joke in
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:21.050
  • humility, okay?
  • 00:11:21.050 --> 00:11:22.080
  • Okay, all right, here you go.
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:23.210
  • The first time God Most High
  • 00:11:23.210 --> 00:11:25.220
  • is mentioned, we have
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:27.090
  • the Lord's supper and tithing.
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:30.000
  • He that have ears to hear,
  • 00:11:30.000 --> 00:11:31.110
  • let him hear.
  • 00:11:31.110 --> 00:11:32.140
  • Okay, first time
  • 00:11:32.140 --> 00:11:33.180
  • Elyon is mentioned.
  • 00:11:33.180 --> 00:11:34.200
  • Okay, watch this,
  • 00:11:34.200 --> 00:11:35.280
  • God told me what?
  • 00:11:35.280 --> 00:11:36.170
  • Genesis 14, El Elyon.
  • 00:11:36.170 --> 00:11:38.200
  • Genesis 17, the first time
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:40.270
  • Almighty God, El Shaddai
  • 00:11:40.270 --> 00:11:42.120
  • appears.
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:43.150
  • Two chapters in between, and God
  • 00:11:43.150 --> 00:11:46.040
  • said, "If you can find out what
  • 00:11:46.040 --> 00:11:47.100
  • these two chapters mean, you
  • 00:11:47.100 --> 00:11:49.010
  • have found he who dwells in the
  • 00:11:49.010 --> 00:11:50.200
  • secret place of the Most High
  • 00:11:50.200 --> 00:11:53.160
  • shall abide under the shadow of
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:55.010
  • the almighty."
  • 00:11:55.010 --> 00:11:57.200
  • Shall I end here?
  • 00:11:57.200 --> 00:11:59.220
  • Okay, you asked for it.
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:01.140
  • Okay, let's go on.
  • 00:12:01.140 --> 00:12:03.080
  • We'll close with this.
  • 00:12:03.080 --> 00:12:05.220
  • Okay, let me show you Genesis 17
  • 00:12:07.230 --> 00:12:08.290
  • first, El Shaddai.
  • 00:12:08.290 --> 00:12:10.080
  • Let's go three chapters forward.
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:12.120
  • You have Genesis 17, verse 1.
  • 00:12:12.120 --> 00:12:14.030
  • "When Abram was ninety-nine
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:15.080
  • years ago, the Lord appeared to
  • 00:12:15.080 --> 00:12:18.050
  • Abram and said to him, 'I am
  • 00:12:18.050 --> 00:12:20.220
  • Almighty God, El Shaddai; walk
  • 00:12:21.220 --> 00:12:24.220
  • before me and be blameless.'"
  • 00:12:24.220 --> 00:12:26.260
  • was still Abram.
  • 00:12:30.010 --> 00:12:30.270
  • In fact, this is the chapter
  • 00:12:30.270 --> 00:12:31.230
  • where his name was changed.
  • 00:12:31.230 --> 00:12:33.280
  • He is like most believers.
  • 00:12:33.280 --> 00:12:36.180
  • Most believers believe that God
  • 00:12:36.180 --> 00:12:38.010
  • is mighty, but they are still
  • 00:12:38.010 --> 00:12:40.020
  • helping God here and there.
  • 00:12:40.020 --> 00:12:41.140
  • Now, God says,
  • 00:12:41.140 --> 00:12:42.200
  • "I'm not just mighty.
  • 00:12:42.200 --> 00:12:43.230
  • I am Almighty."
  • 00:12:43.230 --> 00:12:45.100
  • All means no room for you,
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:47.280
  • no room for your effort.
  • 00:12:47.280 --> 00:12:50.130
  • "I am Almighty God, El Shaddai."
  • 00:12:51.090 --> 00:12:54.090
  • Shaddai means all-supplying,
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:56.090
  • Are you with me?
  • 00:13:00.090 --> 00:13:01.270
  • This is the first time
  • 00:13:01.270 --> 00:13:04.020
  • El Shaddai appears in the Bible.
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:06.180
  • So, the first time El Elyon
  • 00:13:06.180 --> 00:13:07.280
  • The first time El Shaddai
  • 00:13:09.230 --> 00:13:10.260
  • appears, Genesis 17.
  • 00:13:10.260 --> 00:13:12.180
  • Are these two mentioned in
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:14.050
  • sequence, the same sequence in
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:15.020
  • Psalms 91?
  • 00:13:15.020 --> 00:13:16.220
  • He who dwells in the secret
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:18.070
  • place of the Most High shall
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:19.060
  • abide under the shadow of
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:20.210
  • the Almighty.
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:22.010
  • So, let's find the two chapters
  • 00:13:22.010 --> 00:13:24.130
  • in between.
  • 00:13:24.130 --> 00:13:26.120
  • Are you ready?
  • 00:13:26.120 --> 00:13:27.160
  • Because what did God tell me?
  • 00:13:27.160 --> 00:13:29.120
  • God told me this.
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:30.120
  • "You can find the two chapters,
  • 00:13:30.120 --> 00:13:31.130
  • you will find the secret place
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:32.190
  • So, Genesis 15.
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:36.210
  • Right after the Melchizedek
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:38.080
  • experience, God brought Abraham
  • 00:13:38.080 --> 00:13:40.150
  • outside and said,
  • 00:13:40.150 --> 00:13:41.140
  • and count the stars
  • 00:13:42.260 --> 00:13:43.290
  • if you are able to number them.'
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:45.260
  • And God said to Abraham,
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:47.230
  • 'So shall your descendants be.'
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:49.230
  • And he believed in the Lord,
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:51.260
  • and God counted it to him
  • 00:13:51.260 --> 00:13:53.230
  • for righteousness.
  • 00:13:53.230 --> 00:13:55.150
  • This verse is quoted in Romans,
  • 00:13:55.150 --> 00:13:57.250
  • it is quoted in Galatians
  • 00:13:57.250 --> 00:13:59.250
  • as the basis
  • 00:13:59.250 --> 00:14:01.040
  • for the gospel of grace,
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:04.120
  • that you are saved, God imputes
  • 00:14:04.120 --> 00:14:07.050
  • righteousness to you not based
  • 00:14:07.050 --> 00:14:09.140
  • on your works, but by believing
  • 00:14:09.140 --> 00:14:11.290
  • in the Lord.
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:14.150
  • By faith, we are justified
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:16.090
  • without works.
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:18.120
  • So, the first revelation you
  • 00:14:18.120 --> 00:14:20.120
  • must have, let's see how our
  • 00:14:20.120 --> 00:14:21.150
  • church fare, okay, in this.
  • 00:14:21.150 --> 00:14:24.110
  • The first chapter right after
  • 00:14:24.110 --> 00:14:26.160
  • Most High is the revelation,
  • 00:14:26.160 --> 00:14:29.010
  • for the first time, God gave
  • 00:14:29.010 --> 00:14:31.090
  • the revelation of how
  • 00:14:31.090 --> 00:14:32.090
  • to be righteous by faith.
  • 00:14:32.090 --> 00:14:34.080
  • Not by your works,
  • 00:14:34.080 --> 00:14:36.000
  • not by your efforts, by faith.
  • 00:14:36.000 --> 00:14:38.110
  • And Abraham looked up.
  • 00:14:38.110 --> 00:14:40.080
  • If you have ears to hear,
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:41.040
  • the word look now towards heaven
  • 00:14:41.040 --> 00:14:43.020
  • and see if you are able to count
  • 00:14:43.020 --> 00:14:44.220
  • the stars, the word "count" is
  • 00:14:44.220 --> 00:14:46.230
  • like you see in English recount.
  • 00:14:46.230 --> 00:14:49.000
  • It is like the word--the same
  • 00:14:49.000 --> 00:14:50.090
  • word is used in Psalms, where
  • 00:14:50.090 --> 00:14:51.230
  • it sounds the heavens saphar
  • 00:14:51.230 --> 00:14:53.240
  • the glory of God.
  • 00:14:53.240 --> 00:14:54.280
  • The heavens declare.
  • 00:14:54.280 --> 00:14:56.060
  • Here, God says, "See if you are
  • 00:14:56.060 --> 00:14:57.180
  • able to saphar," in Hebrew,
  • 00:14:57.180 --> 00:14:59.040
  • "see if you are able to tell
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:00.040
  • the story."
  • 00:15:00.040 --> 00:15:02.140
  • So, do you know that it is
  • 00:15:02.140 --> 00:15:04.180
  • general consensus everyone
  • 00:15:04.180 --> 00:15:05.160
  • agrees there are
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:06.060
  • 12 constellations?
  • 00:15:06.060 --> 00:15:08.220
  • Okay, we don't believe
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:09.220
  • in horoscope.
  • 00:15:09.220 --> 00:15:11.060
  • Horoscope give you horror scope,
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:13.150
  • a scope of horror.
  • 00:15:13.150 --> 00:15:15.030
  • Okay, people ask you which star
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:16.010
  • are you born under,
  • 00:15:16.010 --> 00:15:17.040
  • say the bright and morning one.
  • 00:15:17.040 --> 00:15:19.110
  • His name is Jesus, all right?
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:21.150
  • The stars don't rule us.
  • 00:15:21.150 --> 00:15:23.060
  • Look beyond the stars to the one
  • 00:15:23.060 --> 00:15:24.150
  • who made the stars, okay?
  • 00:15:24.150 --> 00:15:26.080
  • He will rule your life.
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:27.160
  • Now, what was then?
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:31.040
  • There was no Bible back then.
  • 00:15:31.040 --> 00:15:32.240
  • But from Adam's time, we all
  • 00:15:32.240 --> 00:15:34.260
  • think of their brains as, you
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:36.090
  • know, not so developed
  • 00:15:36.090 --> 00:15:37.210
  • as modern man.
  • 00:15:37.210 --> 00:15:38.070
  • Actually, their brains
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:39.040
  • are more developed.
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:40.110
  • They have more creation and
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:42.040
  • innovation than modern man.
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:44.180
  • We are so fallen, we are trying
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:46.030
  • to backtrack ourselves.
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:47.100
  • Abraham--Adam can name all
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:49.190
  • the animals of every species,
  • 00:15:49.240 --> 00:15:52.240
  • higher and lower species, every
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:54.180
  • small insect, every flower.
  • 00:15:54.240 --> 00:15:57.240
  • And then when he come back again
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:15:58.270
  • to number one, a few days ago
  • 00:15:58.270 --> 00:16:00.220
  • he numbered and named,
  • 00:16:00.220 --> 00:16:02.280
  • he can tell you the name.
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:04.190
  • We all like, "I know you are
  • 00:16:04.190 --> 00:16:07.160
  • my best friend."
  • 00:16:07.220 --> 00:16:10.220
  • "I married you in 1995."
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:12.240
  • "My wife."
  • 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:14.180
  • You know?
  • 00:16:14.180 --> 00:16:15.080
  • So, you know, we forget even
  • 00:16:16.040 --> 00:16:19.040
  • when we are young.
  • 00:16:19.040 --> 00:16:20.000
  • But the memory was Adam was so
  • 00:16:20.000 --> 00:16:21.240
  • amazing that before the fall, he
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:22.210
  • can go back to the first insect
  • 00:16:22.210 --> 00:16:24.040
  • that he named out of the
  • 00:16:24.040 --> 00:16:25.240
  • millions of insects in the
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:28.160
  • world, after he named all the
  • 00:16:28.160 --> 00:16:31.050
  • higher creation of animals, and
  • 00:16:31.050 --> 00:16:32.290
  • he can name all the varieties of
  • 00:16:32.290 --> 00:16:34.190
  • animals, name all the flowers
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:36.270
  • in the world, and come back
  • 00:16:36.270 --> 00:16:39.040
  • and still name it exactly.
  • 00:16:39.040 --> 00:16:41.040
  • What kind of brain is that?
  • 00:16:41.040 --> 00:16:43.130
  • An unfallen brain.
  • 00:16:43.130 --> 00:16:44.240
  • God let him use
  • 00:16:44.240 --> 00:16:47.030
  • 100% of his brain.
  • 00:16:47.030 --> 00:16:48.240
  • Scientists tell us now we
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:49.250
  • use only one-tenth.
  • 00:16:49.250 --> 00:16:51.100
  • The other nine-tenth
  • 00:16:51.100 --> 00:16:53.260
  • is the gifts of the Spirit,
  • 00:16:53.260 --> 00:16:55.040
  • nine gifts of the Spirit.
  • 00:16:55.040 --> 00:16:56.070
  • It was restore to the church.
  • 00:16:56.070 --> 00:16:58.200
  • You get your brain back, folks.
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:00.140
  • All right, turn to your neighbor
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:01.150
  • and say, "You'll get your brain
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:02.080
  • back," all right?
  • 00:17:02.080 --> 00:17:03.090
  • At least one-tenth of it.
  • 00:17:03.090 --> 00:17:05.280
  • Okay, what was I talking about,
  • 00:17:05.280 --> 00:17:07.210
  • brain and all that?
  • 00:17:07.210 --> 00:17:08.180
  • I was talking about something
  • 00:17:08.180 --> 00:17:09.090
  • else.
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:10.020
  • I was talking about something
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:10.200
  • very good.
  • 00:17:10.200 --> 00:17:11.210
  • So, here we have God telling him
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:16.130
  • to--I remember, the stars.
  • 00:17:16.250 --> 00:17:19.250
  • Tell the stories of the stars.
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:20.180
  • I have the mind of Christ.
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:21.160
  • Okay, and God says--12
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:24.240
  • constellations, it starts with
  • 00:17:24.240 --> 00:17:27.090
  • Virgo, and it ends with Leo,"
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:33.190
  • all right?
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:35.160
  • Virgo is the virgin
  • 00:17:35.160 --> 00:17:36.280
  • with the baby.
  • 00:17:36.280 --> 00:17:38.230
  • Matthew opens up with a baby
  • 00:17:38.230 --> 00:17:40.030
  • and the virgin.
  • 00:17:40.030 --> 00:17:42.290
  • New Testament ends with the lion
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:46.170
  • of the tribe of Judah, Leo.
  • 00:17:46.170 --> 00:17:48.140
  • The whole 12 constellation
  • 00:17:48.140 --> 00:17:50.010
  • points to the gospel story long
  • 00:17:50.010 --> 00:17:52.160
  • before the Scriptures
  • 00:17:52.160 --> 00:17:53.260
  • were put together.
  • 00:17:53.260 --> 00:17:56.040
  • all of them knew the Bible story
  • 00:17:59.110 --> 00:18:00.140
  • that a champion was coming.
  • 00:18:00.140 --> 00:18:01.290
  • The conqueror of the dragon,
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:05.260
  • one of the constellation.
  • 00:18:05.260 --> 00:18:07.200
  • Amen, the woman's seed is going
  • 00:18:07.200 --> 00:18:09.180
  • to come.
  • 00:18:09.180 --> 00:18:10.170
  • So, when God told Abraham, "See
  • 00:18:10.170 --> 00:18:11.250
  • if you can tell that gospel
  • 00:18:11.250 --> 00:18:12.220
  • story."
  • 00:18:12.220 --> 00:18:13.100
  • Abraham says, "Yes, I can see."
  • 00:18:13.100 --> 00:18:14.250
  • God says, "That's your seed,"
  • 00:18:14.250 --> 00:18:16.270
  • Jesus.
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:17.200
  • So, Abraham believed the same
  • 00:18:17.200 --> 00:18:18.190
  • that Jesus Christ, the seed of
  • 00:18:21.000 --> 00:18:22.110
  • David, the Son of God will come
  • 00:18:22.110 --> 00:18:23.250
  • and be a sacrifice for our sins.
  • 00:18:23.250 --> 00:18:25.270
  • Are you all with me?
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:26.280
  • Today, the Bible is here.
  • 00:18:26.280 --> 00:18:27.270
  • You don't need to go to
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:28.280
  • the stars anymore, all right?
  • 00:18:28.280 --> 00:18:31.110
  • You can talk about the stars to
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:33.060
  • your girlfriend, but just to
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:34.270
  • charm her, that's all, amen?
  • 00:18:34.270 --> 00:18:36.210
  • But no more like, "You know that
  • 00:18:36.210 --> 00:18:38.080
  • sun, that star over there?"
  • 00:18:38.080 --> 00:18:40.060
  • "Yeah."
  • 00:18:40.060 --> 00:18:41.000
  • "It's telling me that
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:41.230
  • you'll marry me."
  • 00:18:41.230 --> 00:18:42.250
  • All right, no such deception
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:44.090
  • anymore, okay?
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:46.260
  • Genesis what?
  • 00:18:46.260 --> 00:18:47.230
  • Fifteen.
  • 00:18:47.230 --> 00:18:48.180
  • So, Genesis 15, right after
  • 00:18:48.180 --> 00:18:50.060
  • Genesis 14, El Elyon.
  • 00:18:50.060 --> 00:18:52.030
  • We are coming to the place of
  • 00:18:52.030 --> 00:18:53.080
  • the Lord telling me if you can
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:55.060
  • find what are these two chapters
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:18:59.030
  • that is sandwiched by the two
  • 00:18:59.030 --> 00:19:00.100
  • names of God exactly in sequence
  • 00:19:00.100 --> 00:19:02.040
  • the way it's revealed in Psalms
  • 00:19:02.040 --> 00:19:03.180
  • 91, you'll find the secret place
  • 00:19:03.180 --> 00:19:05.170
  • of the Most High.
  • 00:19:05.170 --> 00:19:07.080
  • So, now we have found one place.
  • 00:19:07.080 --> 00:19:08.090
  • You all--everyone who is in
  • 00:19:08.090 --> 00:19:10.040
  • the sacred place must be
  • 00:19:10.040 --> 00:19:11.040
  • justified by faith.
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:14.050
  • They must believe the gospel.
  • 00:19:14.050 --> 00:19:16.190
  • You see, God doesn't
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:17.230
  • presumptuously promise
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:20.190
  • to protect unbelievers.
  • 00:19:20.190 --> 00:19:23.060
  • Now, people are like that.
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:24.170
  • They don't believe in God.
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:26.170
  • They use God's name in vain.
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:28.060
  • They rebel against God.
  • 00:19:28.060 --> 00:19:29.290
  • When things go wrong, they say,
  • 00:19:29.290 --> 00:19:31.090
  • "Where is God?"
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:35.060
  • So God--the promise of God
  • 00:19:35.060 --> 00:19:37.120
  • is very clear.
  • 00:19:37.120 --> 00:19:38.290
  • It's for those who are justified
  • 00:19:38.290 --> 00:19:39.250
  • by faith.
  • 00:19:39.250 --> 00:19:40.260
  • Now, we come to chapter 16,
  • 00:19:40.260 --> 00:19:42.120
  • Chapter 16,
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:46.100
  • what is it all about?
  • 00:19:46.100 --> 00:19:47.180
  • The first verse tells us,
  • 00:19:47.180 --> 00:19:49.120
  • "Now Sarai, Abram's wife,
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:51.180
  • had borne him no children.
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:54.040
  • And she had an Egyptian
  • 00:19:54.040 --> 00:19:55.230
  • maidservant whose
  • 00:19:55.230 --> 00:19:56.290
  • name was Hagar."
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:19:59.050
  • Now, I don't have time to go
  • 00:19:59.050 --> 00:20:00.140
  • into detail, but just to let you
  • 00:20:00.140 --> 00:20:02.090
  • Sarah, Abraham's wife,
  • 00:20:04.240 --> 00:20:07.240
  • is a picture of grace.
  • 00:20:07.240 --> 00:20:10.010
  • Hagar, the maid girl, all right,
  • 00:20:10.280 --> 00:20:13.280
  • the handmaiden, the maidservant,
  • 00:20:13.280 --> 00:20:15.180
  • Hagar from Egypt,
  • 00:20:15.180 --> 00:20:17.040
  • she's a picture of the law.
  • 00:20:17.040 --> 00:20:19.030
  • Now, Pastor Prince
  • 00:20:19.030 --> 00:20:19.280
  • didn't say this.
  • 00:20:19.280 --> 00:20:20.220
  • Paul said this in Galatians.
  • 00:20:20.220 --> 00:20:22.260
  • So, why is this chapter
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:24.180
  • all about Hagar and Sarai?
  • 00:20:24.180 --> 00:20:27.130
  • God is saying, "After you are
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:28.180
  • justified by faith, you better
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:29.270
  • know the law is not going to
  • 00:20:30.100 --> 00:20:33.100
  • help you produce fruits.
  • 00:20:33.100 --> 00:20:36.100
  • Your wife, grace, will.
  • 00:20:36.100 --> 00:20:38.070
  • And you better put law under
  • 00:20:38.070 --> 00:20:39.260
  • grace, not grace under law."
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:43.280
  • Oh, you missed it.
  • 00:20:43.280 --> 00:20:45.190
  • That's the thrust of
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:46.260
  • Pastor Prince's ministry, amen.
  • 00:20:46.260 --> 00:20:49.150
  • And people are still arguing,
  • 00:20:49.150 --> 00:20:50.190
  • let alone be in the secret place
  • 00:20:50.190 --> 00:20:52.100
  • of the Most High, enjoying
  • 00:20:52.100 --> 00:20:53.090
  • the blessings of God.
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:54.080
  • They are arguing about--
  • 00:20:54.080 --> 00:20:55.050
  • you know, they believe in
  • 00:20:55.050 --> 00:20:55.290
  • justification by faith, chapter
  • 00:20:55.290 --> 00:20:57.140
  • is where they stumble.
  • 00:20:59.170 --> 00:21:00.290
  • Amen?
  • 00:21:00.290 --> 00:21:01.280
  • How in the world can you be
  • 00:21:01.280 --> 00:21:03.090
  • sandwiched by the Most High and
  • 00:21:03.090 --> 00:21:05.170
  • the shadow of the Almighty
  • 00:21:05.170 --> 00:21:08.030
  • when you cannot even agree
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:09.230
  • on the place of Sarai?
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:10.250
  • These people who want the law to
  • 00:21:10.250 --> 00:21:11.210
  • come back, or mix grace and law,
  • 00:21:11.210 --> 00:21:13.090
  • grace alone,
  • 00:21:16.040 --> 00:21:17.000
  • cannot raise your boy.
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:18.190
  • You need to have Hagar come
  • 00:21:18.190 --> 00:21:20.200
  • and help Sarah.
  • 00:21:20.200 --> 00:21:22.020
  • You need the law to come
  • 00:21:22.020 --> 00:21:23.040
  • and help Sarah.
  • 00:21:23.040 --> 00:21:24.210
  • The moment the law tried to
  • 00:21:24.210 --> 00:21:26.010
  • exalt itself, God says, "No way.
  • 00:21:28.030 --> 00:21:31.030
  • You come, you submit to
  • 00:21:31.030 --> 00:21:33.020
  • your mistress, Sarah."
  • 00:21:33.020 --> 00:21:34.150
  • Law must submit to grace.
  • 00:21:35.050 --> 00:21:38.050
  • Are you listening, people?
  • 00:21:38.050 --> 00:21:39.230
  • Mmm?
  • 00:21:39.230 --> 00:21:41.150
  • Finally, law didn't, and God
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:43.180
  • told Abraham, "Cast her out,"
  • 00:21:43.180 --> 00:21:46.100
  • because she's trying to overtake
  • 00:21:46.100 --> 00:21:48.270
  • the family, she's trying to
  • 00:21:48.270 --> 00:21:50.070
  • position her son to take
  • 00:21:50.180 --> 00:21:53.180
  • over the entire inheritance.
  • 00:21:53.210 --> 00:21:56.210
  • Serious business, and the church
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:58.270
  • is still struggling
  • 00:21:58.270 --> 00:22:00.070
  • with holding Sarai at home.
  • 00:22:00.070 --> 00:22:02.240
  • They are basically saying the
  • 00:22:02.240 --> 00:22:03.290
  • church cannot be holy, the sons
  • 00:22:03.290 --> 00:22:06.060
  • of Isaac cannot be holy until
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:08.070
  • Sarai is there in the house.
  • 00:22:08.070 --> 00:22:11.020
  • They don't believe grace
  • 00:22:11.020 --> 00:22:12.270
  • alone is enough.
  • 00:22:12.270 --> 00:22:14.020
  • They say, "Oh, I cannot trust
  • 00:22:14.020 --> 00:22:16.060
  • grace, cannot trust Sarah.
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:18.270
  • You know, Sarah is like
  • 00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:20.140
  • do whatever you want,
  • 00:22:20.140 --> 00:22:22.070
  • your sin is okay."
  • 00:22:22.070 --> 00:22:23.160
  • They always like to say that of
  • 00:22:23.160 --> 00:22:24.080
  • grace people.
  • 00:22:24.080 --> 00:22:25.200
  • You know, it's pathetic,
  • 00:22:25.200 --> 00:22:27.060
  • you know, that that same old
  • 00:22:27.060 --> 00:22:29.050
  • argument sounds so hollow today
  • 00:22:29.050 --> 00:22:30.290
  • because Abraham was not married
  • 00:22:31.150 --> 00:22:34.150
  • to Hagar.
  • 00:22:34.150 --> 00:22:36.210
  • He's married to Sarah.
  • 00:22:36.290 --> 00:22:39.290
  • Abraham is faith,
  • 00:22:39.290 --> 00:22:41.230
  • Sarah is grace.
  • 00:22:41.230 --> 00:22:43.150
  • God puts faith and grace
  • 00:22:43.150 --> 00:22:44.230
  • together.
  • 00:22:44.230 --> 00:22:46.150
  • God never put faith and law
  • 00:22:46.150 --> 00:22:48.070
  • together.
  • 00:22:48.070 --> 00:22:49.040
  • They are antithesis.
  • 00:22:49.050 --> 00:22:52.050
  • Are you with me?
  • 00:22:52.050 --> 00:22:53.090
  • So, now we found the secret.
  • 00:22:53.090 --> 00:22:56.000
  • If you want to be in the secret
  • 00:22:56.000 --> 00:22:58.080
  • place of the Most High,
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:00.240

  • be justified by faith, you must
  • 00:23:02.190 --> 00:23:05.140
  • be delivered from the law.
  • 00:23:05.140 --> 00:23:08.030
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:23:08.030 --> 00:23:08.240
