  • God himself, a trice holy God.

  • We are set right

  • - Joseph Prince: We need not be
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:47.160
  • afraid because the Bible says
  • 00:01:47.160 --> 00:01:48.190
  • God promises he will protect us,
  • 00:01:48.190 --> 00:01:50.150
  • amen.
  • 00:01:50.150 --> 00:01:51.120
  • So let's see the category.
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:52.060
  • We have the terror,
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:53.250
  • and what a world we live in.
  • 00:01:53.250 --> 00:01:55.190
  • It's a world of terror now.
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:01:57.040
  • Imagine our children living in
  • 00:01:57.040 --> 00:01:58.180
  • a world that for us, we can walk
  • 00:01:58.180 --> 00:02:00.290
  • down the street, we can actually
  • 00:02:00.290 --> 00:02:02.030
  • go to an airport in times past
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:04.070
  • and not have to worry about
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:05.220
  • so many things and even
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:07.090
  • take off our shoes.
  • 00:02:07.090 --> 00:02:09.180
  • And now all kinds of things.
  • 00:02:09.180 --> 00:02:11.060
  • The latest one is even you got
  • 00:02:11.060 --> 00:02:12.100
  • to prove that your iPhone
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:14.040
  • is really working or your
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:16.010
  • computer is working, all right?
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:17.140
  • So the terror of the times we
  • 00:02:17.140 --> 00:02:19.070
  • live in, the arrow, the missile
  • 00:02:19.070 --> 00:02:20.230
  • that flies, the pestilence or
  • 00:02:20.230 --> 00:02:22.110
  • diseases that walks in darkness.
  • 00:02:22.110 --> 00:02:24.020
  • You know, people are afraid
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:25.020
  • of--they read things like
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:26.250
  • a guy exercises every day,
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:28.120
  • he runs every day.
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:29.260
  • All of a sudden, they found out
  • 00:02:29.260 --> 00:02:30.180
  • he has a disease that's been
  • 00:02:30.180 --> 00:02:31.200
  • walking in darkness in his body.
  • 00:02:31.200 --> 00:02:34.030
  • No one detected it
  • 00:02:34.030 --> 00:02:35.140
  • and he dropped dead.
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:36.270
  • Whatever they say, it's genetics
  • 00:02:36.270 --> 00:02:38.020
  • or whatever it is, God says
  • 00:02:38.020 --> 00:02:39.110
  • there's protection from it.
  • 00:02:39.110 --> 00:02:40.230
  • All right,
  • 00:02:40.230 --> 00:02:41.230
  • this is holy Scripture.
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:43.010
  • And then we have
  • 00:02:43.010 --> 00:02:43.230
  • the destruction that is generic.
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:47.020
  • It covers everything,
  • 00:02:47.020 --> 00:02:47.230
  • the destruction that wastes
  • 00:02:47.230 --> 00:02:49.050
  • at noonday.
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:50.080
  • So all the categories of evil
  • 00:02:50.080 --> 00:02:52.000
  • you can imagine that can come
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:52.280
  • upon the world and that
  • 00:02:52.280 --> 00:02:54.010
  • causes people to be afraid
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:55.010
  • are all covered in Psalms 91.
  • 00:02:55.010 --> 00:02:56.280
  • And for which times?
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:03:00.260
  • Is it seasonal?
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:02.080
  • Is it certain times?
  • 00:03:02.080 --> 00:03:03.070
  • No, verse 5 says by night,
  • 00:03:03.070 --> 00:03:05.230
  • by day.
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:07.230
  • Verse 6, darkness and noonday.
  • 00:03:08.110 --> 00:03:11.110
  • In other words,
  • 00:03:11.110 --> 00:03:12.130
  • Are you listening, people?
  • 00:03:15.190 --> 00:03:17.090
  • Twenty-four hour protection.
  • 00:03:17.090 --> 00:03:18.100
  • Now, first and foremost,
  • 00:03:18.100 --> 00:03:19.150
  • you must establish this.
  • 00:03:19.150 --> 00:03:20.270
  • There are people who don't
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:21.210
  • believe that God is not
  • 00:03:21.210 --> 00:03:24.070
  • I'm telling you, church,
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:30.170
  • God is running his people,
  • 00:03:30.170 --> 00:03:33.130
  • his kingdom, and his people
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:34.200
  • that are in the kingdom.
  • 00:03:34.200 --> 00:03:35.210
  • But if the people in the kingdom
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:37.010
  • are not willing to follow him,
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:38.290
  • okay, they are still
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:40.020
  • on their own.
  • 00:03:40.020 --> 00:03:41.110
  • God is not running this world.
  • 00:03:41.110 --> 00:03:43.000
  • If God is running this world,
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:44.040
  • there would be no hospitals.
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:45.140
  • If God is running this world,
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:46.170
  • there would be no need for
  • 00:03:46.170 --> 00:03:47.160
  • missiles and weapons
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:49.130
  • if God is running this world.
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:52.010
  • Once upon a time, God
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:52.250
  • was running this world.
  • 00:03:52.250 --> 00:03:53.230
  • There was no disease, there
  • 00:03:53.230 --> 00:03:54.190
  • was no sickness, there was
  • 00:03:54.190 --> 00:03:55.140
  • no poverty, there was no death
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:57.030
  • in the garden of Eden.
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:03:58.260
  • And then man sinned.
  • 00:03:58.260 --> 00:04:00.130
  • The Bible says the earth has God
  • 00:04:00.130 --> 00:04:03.000
  • given to the children of man.
  • 00:04:03.000 --> 00:04:05.240
  • And God is not the kind of
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:06.250
  • giver like man is.
  • 00:04:06.250 --> 00:04:08.020
  • After you give, you say,
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:08.240
  • "Give it back to me."
  • 00:04:08.240 --> 00:04:10.100
  • No, when God gives, it is given.
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:12.090
  • It was a man that committed high
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:13.220
  • treason, bowed his knee to
  • 00:04:13.220 --> 00:04:15.170
  • an outlaw spirit, Satan,
  • 00:04:15.170 --> 00:04:17.070
  • and gave the earth in a sense
  • 00:04:17.070 --> 00:04:19.150
  • to Satan, all right.
  • 00:04:19.150 --> 00:04:20.230
  • But it must be a man that
  • 00:04:20.230 --> 00:04:22.150
  • will take it back from him,
  • 00:04:22.150 --> 00:04:23.210
  • so the second Adam came.
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:25.050
  • His name is Jesus Christ, and he
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:26.140
  • got it back for us, hallelujah,
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:28.230
  • amen.
  • 00:04:28.230 --> 00:04:29.240
  • He conquered death,
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:31.210
  • the ultimate enemy, and rose
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:33.180
  • from the dead bodily.
  • 00:04:33.180 --> 00:04:34.180
  • And he is alive today.
  • 00:04:34.180 --> 00:04:35.230
  • You and I serve a risen Savior,
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:38.070
  • amen.
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:40.020
  • So, first and foremost, you must
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:41.140
  • acknowledge there's evil
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:42.160
  • in this world.
  • 00:04:42.160 --> 00:04:43.140
  • If there's evil in this world,
  • 00:04:43.140 --> 00:04:45.140
  • next question to ask,
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:46.170
  • why is there evil in this world?
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:48.060
  • A lot of people like to say,
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:49.040
  • "Well, it's God's fault."
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:51.010
  • Very easy to say that, isn't it?
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:53.040
  • Like I've said before, if I tell
  • 00:04:53.040 --> 00:04:55.020
  • your finger into the fire," and
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:59.010
  • I turn my back and he put his
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:05:00.100
  • finger into the barbeque fire
  • 00:05:00.100 --> 00:05:02.130
  • and he gets burned, he cannot
  • 00:05:02.130 --> 00:05:04.050
  • say, "Aiyah, you know, where
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:06.000
  • were you when I put my finger--
  • 00:05:06.000 --> 00:05:07.080
  • you know, it's your fault, dad.
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:08.190
  • It's your fault."
  • 00:05:08.190 --> 00:05:09.140
  • No, I told you not to put
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:10.100
  • your finger into the fire.
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:12.020
  • The fire burns.
  • 00:05:12.020 --> 00:05:13.280
  • Whether you say, "I don't
  • 00:05:13.280 --> 00:05:14.200
  • believe the fire burns,"
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:15.240
  • the fire still burns.
  • 00:05:15.240 --> 00:05:17.200
  • You see, based on my logic,
  • 00:05:17.200 --> 00:05:18.260
  • all right, the fire is good,
  • 00:05:18.260 --> 00:05:20.150
  • it will not burn.
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:21.100
  • It will still burn.
  • 00:05:21.100 --> 00:05:22.160
  • You can say what you want to say
  • 00:05:22.160 --> 00:05:23.170
  • like that girl.
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:24.140
  • You know, a little girl went to
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:25.240
  • that's a special--one corner
  • 00:05:28.130 --> 00:05:30.190
  • is a special, exclusive place.
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:32.090
  • And the security guy wasn't
  • 00:05:32.090 --> 00:05:33.170
  • watching.
  • 00:05:33.170 --> 00:05:34.130
  • She was about to put her finger
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:35.250
  • into the tank when a boy saw
  • 00:05:36.100 --> 00:05:39.100
  • what happened and shouted,
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:40.210
  • "Don't do that, it's a piranha.
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:42.200
  • It's a man-eating fish."
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:44.190
  • She smiles, says, "I'm a girl."
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:49.060
  • You can reason all you want.
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:51.060
  • If you put your finger there,
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:52.050
  • it will disappear, all right?
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:54.090
  • You know, people can reason all
  • 00:05:54.090 --> 00:05:55.210
  • they want in these last days.
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:57.190
  • Reality is reality.
  • 00:05:57.190 --> 00:06:00.170
  • Fire burns whether you are
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:02.040
  • sincere, you're not sincere,
  • 00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:03.150
  • you are good, you are bad.
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.140
  • Regardless of the color of your
  • 00:06:05.140 --> 00:06:06.200
  • skin, or the race that you are
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:08.040
  • from, or regardless you are
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:09.160
  • wealthy, you are poor,
  • 00:06:09.160 --> 00:06:11.110
  • you are short, you are tall,
  • 00:06:11.110 --> 00:06:12.110
  • you are whatever it is,
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:14.020
  • reality is reality.
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:16.080
  • Sin destroys.
  • 00:06:16.080 --> 00:06:18.100
  • Amen.
  • 00:06:18.100 --> 00:06:19.290
  • Therefore, you must acknowledge
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.120
  • there is evil in this world
  • 00:06:21.120 --> 00:06:22.130
  • because man fell.
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:24.060
  • Man was given the authority
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:25.140
  • over the earth.
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:26.130
  • Man committed high treason.
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:27.160
  • Earth is fallen.
  • 00:06:27.160 --> 00:06:29.100
  • But God must come into the earth
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:32.100
  • legally now.
  • 00:06:32.100 --> 00:06:34.040
  • So, God chose a man
  • 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:35.040
  • called Abraham.
  • 00:06:35.040 --> 00:06:35.280
  • And you can find all that
  • 00:06:35.280 --> 00:06:36.250
  • in my preaching in Noah,
  • 00:06:36.250 --> 00:06:38.260
  • the story of Noah.
  • 00:06:38.260 --> 00:06:40.040
  • And I'm not going to repeat
  • 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:41.120
  • that now, but God found a way.
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.270
  • That's why there's prayer.
  • 00:06:42.270 --> 00:06:44.050
  • Prayer is not trying to be
  • 00:06:44.050 --> 00:06:45.090
  • religious, "Oh, I pray, pray.
  • 00:06:45.090 --> 00:06:46.190
  • God, oh God."
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:47.170
  • Some people are praying
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:48.160
  • to themselves.
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:50.220
  • No, prayer is a transaction
  • 00:06:50.220 --> 00:06:52.220
  • of covenant.
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:54.070
  • It's a covenant transaction
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:55.190
  • because God wants to intervene
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:58.070
  • in the affairs of the earth, but
  • 00:06:58.070 --> 00:06:59.160
  • God cannot do it directly
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:01.080
  • without someone on earth,
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:03.220
  • all right, because he gave
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:05.140
  • the earth to the sons of men.
  • 00:07:05.140 --> 00:07:07.130
  • Do you understand?
  • 00:07:07.130 --> 00:07:08.030
  • And one day,
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:09.010
  • the lease will run out.
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:09.270
  • Even Satan, who has authority to
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:11.140
  • a certain extent, he has power
  • 00:07:11.140 --> 00:07:13.120
  • in lying wonders.
  • 00:07:13.120 --> 00:07:15.100
  • But this earth, the lease
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:16.290
  • is coming to an end.
  • 00:07:16.290 --> 00:07:18.150
  • It's about 6.000 years even.
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:20.170
  • And the Bible says Jesus Christ
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:22.040
  • will come back and the earth
  • 00:07:22.040 --> 00:07:23.020
  • will go back to God.
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:24.130
  • And then the Bible says then you
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:25.160
  • will see how earth is like
  • 00:07:25.160 --> 00:07:27.190
  • when God rules.
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:29.240
  • Millennia, amen?
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:31.060
  • There will be perfect peace,
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:33.100
  • prosperity, no one lacking.
  • 00:07:33.100 --> 00:07:35.140
  • Children can play
  • 00:07:35.140 --> 00:07:37.140
  • at the serpent's hole.
  • 00:07:38.080 --> 00:07:41.080
  • And the wolf and the lamb
  • 00:07:41.080 --> 00:07:43.230
  • will lie down together.
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:45.280
  • There will be nothing that
  • 00:07:45.280 --> 00:07:47.020
  • will hurt or destroy.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:48.070
  • Even animals will change, amen.
  • 00:07:48.100 --> 00:07:51.100
  • That's what it's like
  • 00:07:51.100 --> 00:07:52.270
  • when God rules.
  • 00:07:52.270 --> 00:07:55.000
  • So, until then, we are in
  • 00:07:55.000 --> 00:07:56.010
  • the world, but we are not
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:07:57.110
  • of the world, amen?
  • 00:07:57.110 --> 00:07:59.020
  • The earth is fallen.
  • 00:07:59.020 --> 00:08:00.210
  • Admit that.
  • 00:08:00.210 --> 00:08:02.120
  • Stop fighting against that,
  • 00:08:02.120 --> 00:08:03.240
  • amen.
  • 00:08:03.240 --> 00:08:05.040
  • It's not God's fault any more
  • 00:08:05.040 --> 00:08:06.120
  • than you complain to
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:07.190
  • the Minister of Transport
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:08.130
  • because somebody got
  • 00:08:08.130 --> 00:08:09.070
  • knocked down in the road.
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.060
  • You don't yell at him and say,
  • 00:08:10.060 --> 00:08:11.010
  • "What are you doing?
  • 00:08:11.010 --> 00:08:12.020
  • Why didn't you watch over
  • 00:08:12.020 --> 00:08:12.200
  • the guy?"
  • 00:08:12.200 --> 00:08:13.080
  • God is sovereign, yes, but God
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:18.180
  • is sovereign over the lives
  • 00:08:18.180 --> 00:08:19.190
  • of those who want him
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:20.160
  • to be sovereign.
  • 00:08:20.160 --> 00:08:22.100
  • You come to God and say, "God,
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:23.180
  • whenever you see I am in danger,
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:24.180
  • you put me at the right place at
  • 00:08:24.180 --> 00:08:25.230
  • the right time.
  • 00:08:25.230 --> 00:08:26.170
  • I need you."
  • 00:08:26.170 --> 00:08:27.200
  • And the Bible says, Psalms 91
  • 00:08:27.200 --> 00:08:29.030
  • works like this, verse 2,
  • 00:08:29.030 --> 00:08:30.250
  • "I will say of the Lord."
  • 00:08:30.250 --> 00:08:33.170
  • Do you know there are believers,
  • 00:08:33.170 --> 00:08:35.050
  • even believers who don't say of
  • 00:08:35.050 --> 00:08:36.240
  • the Lord, "You are my refuge"?
  • 00:08:36.240 --> 00:08:38.240
  • They say things of the Lord like
  • 00:08:38.240 --> 00:08:40.060
  • this, "The Lord gives me trouble
  • 00:08:40.060 --> 00:08:41.110
  • sometimes to humble me.
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:44.040
  • You know, the Lord
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:45.030
  • sometimes heals.
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:46.010
  • The Lord sometimes gives you
  • 00:08:46.010 --> 00:08:47.040
  • disease."
  • 00:08:47.040 --> 00:08:48.020
  • That's what they say of
  • 00:08:48.020 --> 00:08:48.250
  • the Lord.
  • 00:08:48.250 --> 00:08:49.180
  • Well, the psalmist says,
  • 00:08:49.180 --> 00:08:51.000
  • "I will say of the Lord, 'He
  • 00:08:51.000 --> 00:08:52.210
  • is my refuge and my fortress.'"
  • 00:08:53.030 --> 00:08:56.030
  • The word refuge is like
  • 00:08:56.030 --> 00:08:57.090
  • a bunker, a place for you
  • 00:08:57.190 --> 00:09:00.210
  • and your family to hide.
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.100
  • Fortress is masada.
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:04.190
  • In fact, right now in Israel,
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.190
  • there's a place called Masada,
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:07.250
  • which is a fortress that
  • 00:09:07.250 --> 00:09:08.250
  • King Herod built.
  • 00:09:08.250 --> 00:09:09.250
  • It was very hard for the Romans
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:10.280
  • to conquer that fortress,
  • 00:09:10.280 --> 00:09:12.080
  • but finally they did it.
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:13.160
  • But it's Masada,
  • 00:09:13.160 --> 00:09:14.150
  • it's a huge fortress.
  • 00:09:14.150 --> 00:09:15.210
  • So, the Lord is your bunker
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:17.160
  • and your fortress, amen.
  • 00:09:17.160 --> 00:09:20.040
  • "My God, in him I will trust."
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:24.000
  • of faith.
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:28.110
  • Psalms 91 operates when
  • 00:09:28.110 --> 00:09:30.060
  • you declare it by faith.
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:32.200
  • Can I have a good amen?
  • 00:09:32.240 --> 00:09:35.240
  • Some of you who are, you know,
  • 00:09:35.240 --> 00:09:38.110
  • war buffs, you like to read or
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:40.060
  • watch documentaries
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.190
  • on world wars.
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:42.250
  • You know, World War II, there
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.150
  • was a time when the British
  • 00:09:44.150 --> 00:09:47.060
  • forces were trapped at the beach
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:50.190
  • of Dunkirk, which faces
  • 00:09:50.190 --> 00:09:53.030
  • Great Britain, amen.
  • 00:09:53.040 --> 00:09:56.040
  • But there's no way they can go
  • 00:09:56.040 --> 00:09:57.140
  • across, and they were all stuck
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:09:58.220
  • there, about 400 of them.
  • 00:09:58.220 --> 00:10:01.010
  • And the Nazis were coming in.
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:03.090
  • The Germans were coming in to
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:05.130
  • wipe all of them out.
  • 00:10:05.130 --> 00:10:07.150
  • Out of the blue came all kinds
  • 00:10:08.040 --> 00:10:11.040
  • of boats, small boats, big
  • 00:10:11.040 --> 00:10:12.200
  • boats, ships, not necessarily
  • 00:10:12.200 --> 00:10:14.090
  • British Navy.
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:15.170
  • In fact, they were fishermen and
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:17.150
  • all kinds of boats that came,
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:19.010
  • and all of them escaped
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:21.090
  • before the Nazis could come
  • 00:10:21.090 --> 00:10:22.160
  • to the beach.
  • 00:10:22.160 --> 00:10:24.170
  • And they say it's a miracle.
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:26.100
  • It's called the Miracle of
  • 00:10:26.100 --> 00:10:27.030
  • Dunkirk.
  • 00:10:27.030 --> 00:10:28.290
  • It's well-documented not
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:30.030
  • a single one lost their lives.
  • 00:10:30.030 --> 00:10:31.150
  • But what people do not know
  • 00:10:31.150 --> 00:10:32.150
  • is this.
  • 00:10:32.150 --> 00:10:33.110
  • Many of those people who were
  • 00:10:33.110 --> 00:10:34.210
  • trapped, the soldiers, they
  • 00:10:34.210 --> 00:10:35.200
  • started yelling, not just
  • 00:10:35.200 --> 00:10:37.240
  • at Dunkirk.
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:43.140
  • Amen.
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:45.140
  • "I will say of the Lord, 'He is
  • 00:10:45.140 --> 00:10:47.120
  • my refuge and my fortress.'"
  • 00:10:47.120 --> 00:10:50.000
  • London, you all still remember
  • 00:10:51.160 --> 00:10:53.060
  • they sent their air force,
  • 00:10:53.060 --> 00:10:55.230
  • the Luftwaffe, and they came in
  • 00:10:55.250 --> 00:10:58.250
  • to bomb London.
  • 00:10:58.250 --> 00:11:00.160
  • There was a house that was--all
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:03.150
  • the houses around it was bombed,
  • 00:11:03.150 --> 00:11:06.010
  • all right, to smithereens.
  • 00:11:06.010 --> 00:11:08.280
  • But this house was still
  • 00:11:08.280 --> 00:11:09.190
  • standing.
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:10.170
  • And after the bombing, the
  • 00:11:10.170 --> 00:11:11.240
  • people came out to see whether
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:12.240
  • an old lone lady, an elderly
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:15.230
  • lady who was living in that
  • 00:11:15.230 --> 00:11:17.170
  • house, whether she was safe.
  • 00:11:17.170 --> 00:11:18.160
  • And when they saw she came out,
  • 00:11:18.160 --> 00:11:20.170
  • all right, looking very good,
  • 00:11:20.170 --> 00:11:22.140
  • very healthy, looking very
  • 00:11:22.140 --> 00:11:23.190
  • restful, they said, "What
  • 00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:24.250
  • happened?
  • 00:11:24.250 --> 00:11:25.130
  • How come your house
  • 00:11:25.130 --> 00:11:26.020
  • didn't get bombed?"
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:27.250
  • And all the other houses
  • 00:11:27.250 --> 00:11:29.260
  • were all bombed.
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:30.210
  • And she said, "Very simple.
  • 00:11:30.210 --> 00:11:32.110
  • I believed in my God.
  • 00:11:32.110 --> 00:11:34.050
  • And I read in Psalms 91 it says
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:38.110
  • that 1.000 will fall at my side,
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:40.150
  • 10.000 at my right hand.
  • 00:11:40.150 --> 00:11:42.130
  • It will not come near me.
  • 00:11:42.130 --> 00:11:43.260
  • So I said, 'God, if you are
  • 00:11:43.260 --> 00:11:45.240
  • watching over me, and you are
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:47.290
  • watching, there's no point
  • 00:11:50.060 --> 00:11:51.130
  • both of us staying up at night.
  • 00:11:51.130 --> 00:11:53.070
  • So, I will sleep.
  • 00:11:53.070 --> 00:11:54.110
  • You watch.'"
  • 00:11:54.110 --> 00:11:55.210
  • Write this down, God works
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:57.130
  • the night shift, amen?
  • 00:11:57.130 --> 00:11:59.240
  • I'm telling you, church,
  • 00:11:59.240 --> 00:12:01.100
  • God shows himself strong
  • 00:12:01.100 --> 00:12:02.270
  • for those who trust him.
  • 00:12:02.270 --> 00:12:05.270
  • Amen.
  • 00:12:05.270 --> 00:12:07.010
  • So I want to tell you this,
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:10.010
  • that Psalms 91 begins with--
  • 00:12:10.010 --> 00:12:12.240
  • there's no way I can finish
  • 00:12:12.240 --> 00:12:13.170
  • Psalms 91 today.
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:15.040
  • All right, it begins with,
  • 00:12:15.040 --> 00:12:16.130
  • "He who dwells."
  • 00:12:16.130 --> 00:12:17.100
  • And the word there is sit down.
  • 00:12:17.100 --> 00:12:19.140
  • The word there is to make
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:20.250
  • your home permanently.
  • 00:12:20.250 --> 00:12:23.090
  • "He who dwells in the secret
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:25.020
  • place of the Most High
  • 00:12:25.200 --> 00:12:28.200
  • shall abide under the shadow
  • 00:12:28.200 --> 00:12:30.050
  • of the Almighty."
  • 00:12:30.050 --> 00:12:32.140
  • Do you know the Most High is
  • 00:12:32.140 --> 00:12:33.030
  • the name of God Elyon?
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:36.220
  • Almighty is another Hebrew
  • 00:12:37.120 --> 00:12:40.120
  • name of God, Shaddai.
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:42.280
  • All right?
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:44.260
  • Now drop down to verse--the last
  • 00:12:45.000 --> 00:12:48.000
  • verse, "With long life."
  • 00:12:48.090 --> 00:12:51.090
  • The entire Psalms ends with,
  • 00:12:51.090 --> 00:12:53.050
  • "With long life I will satisfy
  • 00:12:53.050 --> 00:12:55.210
  • him, and show him my salvation."
  • 00:12:55.210 --> 00:12:58.000
  • God promised us long life.
  • 00:12:58.000 --> 00:13:00.070
  • And long life is long, okay?
  • 00:13:00.180 --> 00:13:03.180
  • But that will be a message
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.140
  • in the future, okay?
  • 00:13:05.140 --> 00:13:06.200
  • I cannot finish everything,
  • 00:13:06.200 --> 00:13:07.290
  • so let's go back to verses 5
  • 00:13:07.290 --> 00:13:10.240
  • and 6 again.
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:12.240
  • Verses 5 and 6, don't forget
  • 00:13:12.240 --> 00:13:14.190
  • terror, arrow, pestilence,
  • 00:13:14.190 --> 00:13:16.250
  • destruction.
  • 00:13:16.250 --> 00:13:17.270
  • When?
  • 00:13:17.270 --> 00:13:18.210
  • When is this protection
  • 00:13:18.210 --> 00:13:19.240
  • available?
  • 00:13:19.240 --> 00:13:20.130
  • Night and day,
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:21.180
  • darkness and noonday.
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:23.080
  • God promised us that you would
  • 00:13:23.080 --> 00:13:24.260
  • Angels will go with you.
  • 00:13:27.120 --> 00:13:28.250
  • You read that just now.
  • 00:13:28.250 --> 00:13:30.010
  • But because of time,
  • 00:13:30.010 --> 00:13:30.230
  • we'll take it slow.
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:32.120
  • We'll go slow, all right?
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:34.070
  • I don't want to rush through.
  • 00:13:34.070 --> 00:13:35.190
  • And the things I'm going to
  • 00:13:35.190 --> 00:13:36.190
  • share with you, many of the
  • 00:13:36.190 --> 00:13:37.150
  • things I'm going to share with
  • 00:13:37.150 --> 00:13:38.090
  • you are things that--how
  • 00:13:38.090 --> 00:13:40.060
  • many are glad that there's
  • 00:13:40.060 --> 00:13:41.120
  • progressive revelation?
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:43.030
  • You know, you can read the same
  • 00:13:43.030 --> 00:13:43.220
  • chapter and see different things
  • 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:46.020
  • in the same chapter.
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:47.140
  • So, I'm going to show you
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:48.130
  • something that I never preached
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:49.150
  • on in Psalms 91, and I've
  • 00:13:49.150 --> 00:13:51.000
  • preached a lot on Psalms 91
  • 00:13:51.000 --> 00:13:52.080
  • But I'm going to show you
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:55.000
  • something right now from verse
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:56.020
  • 1, Psalms 91.
  • 00:13:56.020 --> 00:13:57.220
  • "He who dwells in the secret
  • 00:13:57.220 --> 00:13:59.210
  • place of the Most High
  • 00:13:59.210 --> 00:14:01.080
  • shall abide under the shadow of
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:02.090
  • the Almighty."
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:03.060
  • So, the first thing God says
  • 00:14:03.060 --> 00:14:04.080
  • is that rest, dwell.
  • 00:14:04.080 --> 00:14:05.170
  • The word "dwell" is yashav
  • 00:14:05.170 --> 00:14:06.290
  • in Hebrew, and God wants you
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:09.020
  • yashaving.
  • 00:14:09.020 --> 00:14:10.230
  • He wants you resting.
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:12.050
  • The word is sit down,
  • 00:14:12.050 --> 00:14:13.280
  • make your home.
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:14.280
  • "He who dwells in the secret
  • 00:14:14.280 --> 00:14:16.280
  • place of the Most High
  • 00:14:16.280 --> 00:14:18.050
  • shall abide under the shadow of
  • 00:14:18.050 --> 00:14:19.090
  • the Almighty."
  • 00:14:19.090 --> 00:14:20.040
  • Do you know that position is
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:21.080
  • important with God?
  • 00:14:21.080 --> 00:14:22.250
  • And do you know that before God
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:24.020
  • blesses you, God gives you
  • 00:14:24.020 --> 00:14:25.070
  • the most high position?
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:26.120
  • Let me explain.
  • 00:14:26.120 --> 00:14:26.290
  • In Deuteronomy 28, we all love
  • 00:14:26.290 --> 00:14:28.200
  • blessings in Deuteronomy 28.
  • 00:14:32.290 --> 00:14:35.130
  • Blessed are you in the city,
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:36.170
  • blessed are you in the country.
  • 00:14:36.170 --> 00:14:38.100
  • Blessed coming in,
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:39.220
  • blessed going out.
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:41.180
  • Blessed in all that you touch,
  • 00:14:41.180 --> 00:14:43.090
  • blessed in the fruit of
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:44.020
  • your body, your children.
  • 00:14:44.020 --> 00:14:45.230
  • Blessed when your enemies come
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:47.120
  • against you one way.
  • 00:14:47.120 --> 00:14:48.250
  • They flee before you seven ways,
  • 00:14:48.250 --> 00:14:50.270
  • confused.
  • 00:14:50.270 --> 00:14:52.020
  • Blessed because he'll make you
  • 00:14:52.020 --> 00:14:53.060
  • the head and not the tail.
  • 00:14:53.060 --> 00:14:55.060
  • Blessed because you will
  • 00:14:55.060 --> 00:14:56.170
  • lend and you will not borrow.
  • 00:14:58.000 --> 00:15:01.020
  • Amen.
  • 00:15:01.020 --> 00:15:03.080
  • Blessed because God will make
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:07.160
  • you the head and not the tail.
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:12.190
  • Now, we all love to say amen to
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:14.170
  • that, but you know how
  • 00:15:14.170 --> 00:15:15.140
  • that entire narration of
  • 00:15:15.140 --> 00:15:16.140
  • the blessings begins with?
  • 00:15:16.140 --> 00:15:18.200
  • "And the Lord your God will
  • 00:15:18.200 --> 00:15:21.120
  • set you on high above all
  • 00:15:21.120 --> 00:15:24.000
  • the nations of the earth,
  • 00:15:24.000 --> 00:15:25.290
  • and all these blessings will
  • 00:15:25.290 --> 00:15:27.220
  • come on you and overtake you."
  • 00:15:27.220 --> 00:15:29.280
  • First position, say position.
  • 00:15:29.280 --> 00:15:32.130
  • Then blessings, say blessings.
  • 00:15:32.130 --> 00:15:35.100
  • So, do you know that that's what
  • 00:15:35.100 --> 00:15:36.070
  • God did with us?
  • 00:15:36.070 --> 00:15:37.070
  • The moment you put your trust in
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:38.140
  • Christ, amen, when God raised
  • 00:15:38.140 --> 00:15:41.030
  • Jesus from the dead, the Bible
  • 00:15:41.030 --> 00:15:43.020
  • says you are in Christ
  • 00:15:43.020 --> 00:15:44.250
  • raised from the dead.
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:46.290
  • When God raised Jesus up, up, up
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:48.190
  • far above every principality,
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:50.260
  • every power, every might, every
  • 00:15:50.260 --> 00:15:52.130
  • dominion, every name that is
  • 00:15:52.130 --> 00:15:53.280
  • named, not only in this world
  • 00:15:53.280 --> 00:15:55.120
  • but in the world to come, and
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:56.160
  • God set Jesus at his right hand
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:15:57.290
  • at the center of the universe of
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:15:59.280
  • universes, at the right hand of
  • 00:15:59.280 --> 00:16:02.120
  • the HQ of heaven, at the throne,
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:03.280
  • very throne of God himself,
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.180
  • a trice holy God, we
  • 00:16:05.180 --> 00:16:07.060
  • are set right in Christ
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:08.290
  • beside him, yashav.
  • 00:16:08.290 --> 00:16:10.250
  • We are seated in Christ
  • 00:16:10.250 --> 00:16:12.270
  • at the Father's right hand.
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:14.120
  • When you look at the devil,
  • 00:16:14.120 --> 00:16:15.220
  • he is below you, far below you.
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:18.060
  • God says you're on high, and
  • 00:16:18.060 --> 00:16:20.040
  • then the blessings come on you.
  • 00:16:20.040 --> 00:16:21.290
  • Okay?
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:24.050
  • And then the Lord said this to
  • 00:16:24.050 --> 00:16:25.150
  • me.
  • 00:16:25.150 --> 00:16:26.140
  • "Son."
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:27.100
  • And I never preached
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:28.030
  • on this before because
  • 00:16:28.030 --> 00:16:28.240
  • it's a fresh revelation.
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:29.260
  • Never heard anyone preach on
  • 00:16:29.260 --> 00:16:30.220
  • You guys are the first
  • 00:16:32.280 --> 00:16:33.230
  • to receive it.
  • 00:16:34.120 --> 00:16:37.120
  • All right, first of all,
  • 00:16:37.120 --> 00:16:39.010
  • what's the name of God here?
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:41.210
  • Elyon, Most High God, all right?
  • 00:16:41.210 --> 00:16:44.030
  • And what is the name after that?
  • 00:16:44.030 --> 00:16:46.130
  • Shaddai.
  • 00:16:46.130 --> 00:16:47.090
  • So, you have Most High God,
  • 00:16:47.090 --> 00:16:49.050
  • and then you have El Shaddai,
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:52.160
  • Do you know that the first
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:58.190
  • mention of the Most High God
  • 00:16:58.190 --> 00:17:00.250
  • is Genesis 14?
  • 00:17:01.100 --> 00:17:04.100
  • El Elyon.
  • 00:17:04.100 --> 00:17:05.070
  • The first time any subject
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:07.110
  • or even the name of God is
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:08.260
  • mentioned, there is something
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:09.210
  • significant.
  • 00:17:09.210 --> 00:17:10.150
  • So, the first time God Most High
  • 00:17:10.150 --> 00:17:11.210
  • is mentioned, it is in Genesis
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:14.060
  • 14, the meeting of Abraham
  • 00:17:14.060 --> 00:17:17.010
  • with Melchizedek.
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:18.110
  • God Most High was mentioned
  • 00:17:18.110 --> 00:17:19.220
  • the first time.
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:20.220
  • Do you know when El Shaddai
  • 00:17:20.220 --> 00:17:22.210
  • was mentioned, Almighty God?
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:24.170
  • Three chapters later, seventeen,
  • 00:17:24.170 --> 00:17:27.080
  • when Abraham was ninety-nine
  • 00:17:27.080 --> 00:17:28.170
  • years old.
  • 00:17:28.170 --> 00:17:29.140
  • God says, "I am Almighty God.
  • 00:17:29.140 --> 00:17:31.210
  • I am El Shaddai."
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:33.170
  • So, notice the order.
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:34.280
  • God Most High and then
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:37.250
  • El Shaddai, Almighty God.
  • 00:17:38.050 --> 00:17:41.050
  • Notice Psalms 91 starts with
  • 00:17:41.050 --> 00:17:42.250
  • El Elyon, God Most High;
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:45.170
  • Almighty God, El Shaddai.
  • 00:17:45.170 --> 00:17:47.090
  • Are you with me so far?
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:48.190
  • Now watch this.
  • 00:17:48.190 --> 00:17:50.010
  • God told me this.
  • 00:17:50.010 --> 00:17:52.070
  • The first mention of God Most
  • 00:17:52.070 --> 00:17:53.290
  • High, El Elyon, Genesis 14.
  • 00:17:53.290 --> 00:17:56.060
  • Almighty God, Genesis 17.
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:18:00.190
  • How many chapters in between
  • 00:18:00.190 --> 00:18:02.230
  • 14 and 17, class?
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:05.250
  • Fourteen, seventeen,
  • 00:18:05.250 --> 00:18:07.150
  • in between fifteen, sixteen.
  • 00:18:07.150 --> 00:18:10.010
  • God says if you can find out
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:12.070
  • what is in these two chapters,
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:13.150
  • you will be in the secret place
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:14.220
  • of the Most High under
  • 00:18:14.220 --> 00:18:16.060
  • All right, are
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:20.210
  • we being consistent?
  • 00:18:20.210 --> 00:18:21.190
  • Am I preaching context?
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:23.050
  • Yes.
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:24.000
  • So, let's look at Genesis 14
  • 00:18:24.000 --> 00:18:24.290
  • first.
  • 00:18:24.290 --> 00:18:25.240
  • Genesis 14, "Then Melchizedek
  • 00:18:25.240 --> 00:18:27.100
  • king of Salem," Salem is from
  • 00:18:27.100 --> 00:18:29.170
  • shalom, where you get the word
  • 00:18:29.170 --> 00:18:31.060
  • "shalom," all right.
  • 00:18:31.060 --> 00:18:32.110
  • shalom, king of Salem, king of
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:36.210
  • wholeness, king of health.
  • 00:18:36.210 --> 00:18:39.070
  • You know what's disease?
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:40.200
  • Dis-ease, no ease, dis-ease,
  • 00:18:41.150 --> 00:18:44.150
  • disease.
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:45.170
  • No rest, no wholeness.
  • 00:18:45.170 --> 00:18:47.050
  • Well, God is the God
  • 00:18:47.050 --> 00:18:48.080
  • of wholeness.
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:49.040
  • God gives you wholeness,
  • 00:18:49.040 --> 00:18:50.110
  • spirit, soul, and body.
  • 00:18:50.110 --> 00:18:53.100
  • Who is the king that can
  • 00:18:53.100 --> 00:18:55.230
  • do this?
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:57.230
  • Okay, who is the king of golf?
  • 00:18:57.230 --> 00:18:58.140
  • We say Tiger Woods.
  • 00:18:58.140 --> 00:19:00.020
  • When you say king, that means
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:01.040
  • what?
  • 00:19:01.040 --> 00:19:01.210
  • He's specialized in it.
  • 00:19:01.210 --> 00:19:02.180
  • He's the top, king of rock
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:03.230
  • and roll, Elvis Presley.
  • 00:19:03.230 --> 00:19:05.180
  • You know, king.
  • 00:19:05.180 --> 00:19:06.170
  • So king of Salem,
  • 00:19:06.170 --> 00:19:08.200
  • king of wholeness,
  • 00:19:08.200 --> 00:19:09.140
  • that's our Lord Jesus.
  • 00:19:09.140 --> 00:19:11.060
  • In fact, the Bible in Hebrews 7
  • 00:19:11.060 --> 00:19:12.270
  • calls him Melchizedek, all
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:14.000
  • right.
  • 00:19:14.000 --> 00:19:14.200
  • He's the priest after the order
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:15.250
  • of Melchizedek.
  • 00:19:15.250 --> 00:19:16.180
  • So I believe that Jesus appeared
  • 00:19:16.180 --> 00:19:18.180
  • to Abraham as Melchizedek.
  • 00:19:18.180 --> 00:19:21.090
  • "Then Melchizedek king of
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:23.010
  • Salem," wholeness, "brought out
  • 00:19:23.010 --> 00:19:24.290
  • bread and wine."
  • 00:19:24.290 --> 00:19:27.130
  • Mm, what is that?
  • 00:19:27.130 --> 00:19:30.020
  • Communion, right there.
  • 00:19:30.020 --> 00:19:32.270
  • Long before the law was given,
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:34.270
  • long before Jesus came and died,
  • 00:19:34.270 --> 00:19:37.010
  • God talked about the importance
  • 00:19:37.010 --> 00:19:38.230
  • of communion.
  • 00:19:38.230 --> 00:19:41.120
  • Right?
  • 00:19:41.120 --> 00:19:42.190
  • He brought out bread and wine.
  • 00:19:42.190 --> 00:19:43.290
  • He was the priest of God
  • 00:19:43.290 --> 00:19:46.000
  • Most High, El Elyon.
  • 00:19:46.110 --> 00:19:49.110
  • For the first time,
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:51.180
  • this name was mentioned.
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:52.170
  • Now, later on, you encounter
  • 00:19:52.170 --> 00:19:54.100
  • this name as the name of God
  • 00:19:54.100 --> 00:19:56.260
  • that puts down one emperor
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:19:59.000
  • and raises up another king.
  • 00:19:59.000 --> 00:20:01.160
  • He's a God that ruleth over
  • 00:20:01.160 --> 00:20:03.160
  • the affairs of men.
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:05.040
  • You all remember the story of
  • 00:20:05.040 --> 00:20:06.120
  • King Nebuchadnezzar.
  • 00:20:06.120 --> 00:20:08.180
  • The Bible says it was because of
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:10.130
  • Israel's idolatry God delivered
  • 00:20:10.130 --> 00:20:12.190
  • Israel into the hands of
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:14.070
  • the Babylonians.
  • 00:20:14.070 --> 00:20:15.200
  • So, God raised King
  • 00:20:15.200 --> 00:20:16.270
  • Nebuchadnezzar, but one King
  • 00:20:16.270 --> 00:20:18.150
  • And this is what he said about
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:23.270
  • the hanging gardens of Babylon
  • 00:20:23.270 --> 00:20:25.190
  • and the riches of Babylon.
  • 00:20:25.190 --> 00:20:27.040
  • "The king spoke, 'Is not this
  • 00:20:27.040 --> 00:20:28.220
  • great Babylon that I have built
  • 00:20:28.220 --> 00:20:30.270
  • for a royal dwelling by my
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:32.120
  • mighty power and for the honor
  • 00:20:32.120 --> 00:20:34.200
  • of my majesty?'"
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:37.080
  • That's the spirit of the world
  • 00:20:37.080 --> 00:20:39.060
  • today.
  • 00:20:39.060 --> 00:20:40.100
  • "While the word was still in the
  • 00:20:40.100 --> 00:20:41.290
  • king's mouth, a voice fell
  • 00:20:41.290 --> 00:20:43.250
  • from heaven.
  • 00:20:43.250 --> 00:20:45.060
  • 'King Nebuchadnezzar, to you
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:47.220
  • it is spoken: the kingdom
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:50.120
  • has departed from you.
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.140
  • And they shall drive you from
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:53.080
  • men, and your dwelling shall be
  • 00:20:53.080 --> 00:20:54.120
  • with the beasts of the field.'"
  • 00:20:54.120 --> 00:20:55.230
  • And literally he became insane
  • 00:20:55.230 --> 00:20:57.050
  • for 7 years.
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:58.240
  • "They shall make you eat grass
  • 00:20:58.240 --> 00:21:00.240
  • like oxen, and 7 times," which
  • 00:21:00.240 --> 00:21:02.090
  • is 7 years we know, "shall pass
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:03.180
  • over you until you know that
  • 00:21:03.180 --> 00:21:05.130
  • the Most High," El Elyon, "rules
  • 00:21:05.130 --> 00:21:07.150
  • in the kingdom of men,
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:09.210
  • and he gives it
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:10.250
  • to whomever he chooses."
  • 00:21:11.060 --> 00:21:14.060
  • The Most High gives the kingdom
  • 00:21:16.130 --> 00:21:18.270
  • to whoever he chooses.
  • 00:21:18.270 --> 00:21:20.240
  • So, he forgot even a heathen
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:23.080
  • king is raised by God.
  • 00:21:23.110 --> 00:21:26.110
  • And he forgot.
  • 00:21:26.110 --> 00:21:27.240
  • He became proud, and God put him
  • 00:21:27.240 --> 00:21:29.060
  • down for 7 years until one day,
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:31.260
  • you know how his sanity
  • 00:21:31.260 --> 00:21:32.190
  • came back?
  • 00:21:32.190 --> 00:21:33.140
  • Same way that it dropped.
  • 00:21:33.140 --> 00:21:35.050
  • He looked up, and he praised
  • 00:21:35.050 --> 00:21:37.050
  • the God of heaven.
  • 00:21:37.050 --> 00:21:38.090
  • His sanity came back.
  • 00:21:38.090 --> 00:21:39.260
  • I'm telling you, church,
  • 00:21:39.260 --> 00:21:41.150
  • learn to be humble before God.
  • 00:21:42.090 --> 00:21:45.090
  • You know, when you put yourself
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:46.250
  • down before God, down, a person
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:49.100
  • who is down needs fear no fall.
  • 00:21:52.000 --> 00:21:55.000
  • But the higher up you put
  • 00:21:55.000 --> 00:21:56.270
  • yourself--now God put you high,
  • 00:21:56.270 --> 00:21:58.220
  • no problem.
  • 00:21:58.220 --> 00:21:59.130
  • If God put you up,
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:00.210
  • God will hold you.
  • 00:22:00.210 --> 00:22:01.190
  • But God doesn't want you
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:02.250
  • to put yourself up.
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.220
  • If you put yourself up and you
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:07.100
  • fall, the higher you are,
  • 00:22:07.100 --> 00:22:09.060
  • the greater the fall.
  • 00:22:09.060 --> 00:22:11.130
  • So, you know what?
  • 00:22:11.130 --> 00:22:12.050
  • Before anything happens,
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:13.070
  • go down, stay down because
  • 00:22:14.060 --> 00:22:17.060
  • he who is down fears no fall.
  • 00:22:17.080 --> 00:22:20.080
  • And wait for God to raise you
  • 00:22:20.080 --> 00:22:22.060
  • up.
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:23.020
  • See, at the end of the day, I
  • 00:22:23.020 --> 00:22:24.040
  • need not even fear my critics.
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:26.140
  • Those who say, "Well, I don't
  • 00:22:26.140 --> 00:22:28.150
  • believe what you preach."
  • 00:22:28.150 --> 00:22:29.240
  • And you know, or those who come
  • 00:22:29.240 --> 00:22:31.080
  • against grace.
  • 00:22:31.080 --> 00:22:31.270
  • You know, sometimes people
  • 00:22:31.270 --> 00:22:32.200
  • around me are more concerned
  • 00:22:32.200 --> 00:22:33.120
  • than I am.
  • 00:22:33.120 --> 00:22:34.060
  • I'm not concerned because, at
  • 00:22:34.060 --> 00:22:35.060
  • the end of the day, it's whether
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:36.130
  • the Most High give weight
  • 00:22:36.130 --> 00:22:38.150
  • to your words.
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:40.090
  • You can blog all you want,

  • you can write all you want,

  • but at the end of the day,
  • 00:22:42.210 --> 00:22:43.180
  • do your words stick?
  • 00:22:43.180 --> 00:22:45.170
  • If God gives weight to my mouth,
  • 00:22:46.020 --> 00:22:49.020
  • that when I speak, lives
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:50.240
