  • Joseph Prince.
  • 00:00:17.110 --> 00:00:18.170
  • - Joseph Prince: Let us possess
  • 00:00:18.170 --> 00:00:20.010
  • peace with God because we have
  • 00:00:20.010 --> 00:00:21.150
  • been justified by faith.
  • 00:00:21.150 --> 00:00:23.180
  • Jesus' death on the cross and
  • 00:00:23.180 --> 00:00:25.010

  • faith, we have peace."
  • 00:00:34.020 --> 00:00:35.220
  • But actually in the Greek it's
  • 00:00:35.220 --> 00:00:38.180
  • stronger than that, "Let us
  • 00:00:38.180 --> 00:00:40.140
  • possess peace with God."
  • 00:00:40.140 --> 00:00:42.060

  • time, you know, when I parked at

  • the basement, I reversed.
  • 00:01:54.040 --> 00:01:55.200

  • y'all.

  • All right, so, I reversed my car
  • 00:02:00.270 --> 00:02:01.170
  • and ah, that sound, that
  • 00:02:01.170 --> 00:02:04.040
  • terrible screeching sound.
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:06.130
  • You know, I had to really put
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:08.160
  • a note down there.
  • 00:02:08.160 --> 00:02:09.170
  • Nobody saw and that condo that I
  • 00:02:09.230 --> 00:02:12.230

  • have, you know, those TV,
  • 00:02:14.080 --> 00:02:16.210
  • nothing so I knew that,
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:19.030
  • I could go off.
  • 00:02:19.030 --> 00:02:20.120
  • I could drive somewhere else
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:21.050
  • and hide but there's always
  • 00:02:22.210 --> 00:02:25.210
  • the Holy Spirit inside.
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:27.090
  • Amen?
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:28.140
  • And he is the one that you live
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:29.110
  • for the audience of one and then
  • 00:02:29.170 --> 00:02:32.170
  • there'll be an anointing,
  • 00:02:32.170 --> 00:02:33.230
  • there'll be a poise, there'll be
  • 00:02:33.230 --> 00:02:34.160
  • a genuineness, and integrity

  • These things are spiritual,
  • 00:02:41.010 --> 00:02:42.230
  • all right?
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:43.230
  • There'll be a weightiness, amen?
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:45.020
  • Praise God.
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:46.070
  • Anyway, I got in touch with
  • 00:02:46.070 --> 00:02:47.010
  • the lady.
  • 00:02:47.010 --> 00:02:49.110
  • Again, my wife found it's
  • 00:02:49.110 --> 00:02:50.170
  • a lady, my wife said, "I'll meet
  • 00:02:50.170 --> 00:02:51.150
  • My wife doesn't trust the flesh
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:59.120
  • of her husband, which is a smart
  • 00:02:59.120 --> 00:03:02.070
  • thing to do, you know?
  • 00:03:02.070 --> 00:03:04.070
  • If any guy tells you, "Look, I'm
  • 00:03:04.070 --> 00:03:05.200
  • just gonna counsel her, okay?
  • 00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:06.290
  • I know it's late at night,
  • 00:03:06.290 --> 00:03:08.100
  • but she really needs help.
  • 00:03:08.100 --> 00:03:09.050
  • I'm going there to counsel her."
  • 00:03:09.050 --> 00:03:10.240
  • It'd be smart for you not to
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:11.150
  • believe your husband and say,
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:13.230
  • "Can I come along?"
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:15.020
  • Says, "No, it's better for me
  • 00:03:15.020 --> 00:03:16.020
  • to counsel her alone."
  • 00:03:16.020 --> 00:03:17.040
  • "You're not going."
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:17.280
  • Understand or not?
  • 00:03:17.280 --> 00:03:18.190
  • Do have the attitude like you
  • 00:03:18.190 --> 00:03:20.040
  • are needed.
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:21.020
  • You are the Messiah.
  • 00:03:21.020 --> 00:03:22.010
  • You are the Savior.
  • 00:03:22.010 --> 00:03:23.080
  • You are the hero, all right, if
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:24.260
  • you are, so is your wife, okay?
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:29.060
  • She don't want your wife to come
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:29.290
  • along, something is wrong, boy.
  • 00:03:31.000 --> 00:03:34.000
  • Amen?
  • 00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:35.030
  • No more amen.
  • 00:03:35.030 --> 00:03:37.100
  • Not so strong.
  • 00:03:37.100 --> 00:03:38.270
  • The amen battery going down.
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:39.230
  • "Amen, Pastor Prince."
  • 00:03:39.230 --> 00:03:41.080
  • All right, all right, now watch
  • 00:03:41.080 --> 00:03:42.080
  • this, all right, the Bible says
  • 00:03:42.080 --> 00:03:44.210
  • very clearly in Hebrews that we
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:47.160
  • are to have grace.
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:48.130
  • Look at Hebrews chapter 12,
  • 00:03:48.130 --> 00:03:49.220
  • "Therefore, since we are
  • 00:03:49.220 --> 00:03:50.110
  • receiving a kingdom which cannot
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:51.180
  • be shaken, let us have grace,
  • 00:03:51.180 --> 00:03:53.180
  • by which we may serve God
  • 00:03:53.180 --> 00:03:55.070
  • acceptably with reverence
  • 00:03:55.070 --> 00:03:56.130
  • and godly fear."
  • 00:03:56.130 --> 00:03:58.170
  • How do you serve God with
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:03:59.220
  • reverence and godly fear?
  • 00:03:59.290 --> 00:04:03.010
  • How do you do it?
  • 00:04:03.010 --> 00:04:04.020
  • Let us have grace.
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:06.130
  • And the word let us have grace,
  • 00:04:06.130 --> 00:04:08.120
  • let us have is accho, accho is
  • 00:04:08.120 --> 00:04:10.230
  • the same one used in
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:11.120
  • Romans 5, verse 1 where it says,
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:13.070
  • "Therefore being justified by
  • 00:04:13.070 --> 00:04:15.090
  • faith, accho, peace with God."
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:18.290
  • Let us hold on to that peace.
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:21.030
  • Let us possess our possession.
  • 00:04:21.030 --> 00:04:23.270
  • Let us possess peace with God.
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:26.130
  • And the word there, all right,
  • 00:04:27.220 --> 00:04:30.220
  • in the Greek is active,
  • 00:04:30.220 --> 00:04:32.110
  • present active.
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:33.210
  • Let us possess peace with God
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:36.080
  • because we have been justified
  • 00:04:36.080 --> 00:04:37.240
  • by faith.
  • 00:04:37.240 --> 00:04:38.240
  • Jesus' death on the cross and
  • 00:04:38.240 --> 00:04:40.080
  • resurrection has justified us,
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:42.230
  • people.
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:43.120
  • Therefore, let us have peace.
  • 00:04:43.120 --> 00:04:45.220
  • Your New King James and all that
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:47.150
  • just says, "Being justified by
  • 00:04:47.150 --> 00:04:49.030
  • faith, we have peace."
  • 00:04:49.030 --> 00:04:50.260
  • But actually in the Greek it's
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:53.250
  • stronger than that, "Let us
  • 00:04:53.250 --> 00:04:55.180
  • possess peace with God."
  • 00:04:55.180 --> 00:04:57.100
  • Don't let anything tell you, you
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:04:59.270
  • know, oh, you don't have peace.
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:01.020
  • You don't feel peace in your
  • 00:05:01.020 --> 00:05:02.040
  • heart, right?
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:02.280
  • No, it's not my feelings.
  • 00:05:02.280 --> 00:05:03.190
  • I have peace because I'm the
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:06.020
  • righteousness of God in Christ.
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:08.100
  • Possess it.
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:08.290
  • It's an active present active.
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:11.070
  • Here is the same, let us,
  • 00:05:11.070 --> 00:05:12.270
  • same word, present active
  • 00:05:12.270 --> 00:05:14.040
  • also in the Greek, accho also.
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:16.090
  • Let us have grace by which,
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:18.130
  • that means only by grace you
  • 00:05:18.130 --> 00:05:19.210
  • can serve God acceptably with
  • 00:05:19.210 --> 00:05:21.170
  • reverence and godly fear, okay?
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:25.250
  • I'm showing you this verse
  • 00:05:25.250 --> 00:05:26.140
  • because this is one of the
  • 00:05:26.140 --> 00:05:27.020
  • verses people use against you to
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:29.050
  • tell you, "Well, the Bible says
  • 00:05:29.050 --> 00:05:31.100
  • you must serve God subtly
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:33.110
  • with reverence and godly fear."
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:36.030
  • All right, they fail to tell
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:36.200
  • you, "Let us have grace."
  • 00:05:36.200 --> 00:05:39.130
  • Grace will cause people to serve
  • 00:05:39.130 --> 00:05:40.170
  • God acceptably, number one, with
  • 00:05:40.170 --> 00:05:43.070
  • reverence and godly fear but
  • 00:05:43.070 --> 00:05:45.190
  • it's not a fear of--it's not
  • 00:05:45.190 --> 00:05:47.050
  • a slavish fear.
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:49.040
  • It is a sonship fear, respect.
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:52.000
  • A son working for me has the
  • 00:05:52.000 --> 00:05:53.160
  • awesome respect for me when we
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:55.140
  • are in good relationship,
  • 00:05:55.140 --> 00:05:56.120
  • that's that kind of fear.
  • 00:05:56.120 --> 00:05:57.140
  • It's not a slave
  • 00:05:57.140 --> 00:05:58.130
  • fear, it's a son's fear.
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:06:00.050
  • Okay, next verse.
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:02.240
  • I purposely put the last verse
  • 00:06:02.240 --> 00:06:03.240
  • there because people used this
  • 00:06:03.240 --> 00:06:05.130
  • verse a lot out of context.
  • 00:06:05.130 --> 00:06:06.250
  • "For our God is consuming fire."
  • 00:06:06.250 --> 00:06:09.000
  • You see, it's almost like you
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:10.160
  • or with godly fear,
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:16.210
  • God will consume you.
  • 00:06:16.210 --> 00:06:17.190
  • The idea is always God will
  • 00:06:17.190 --> 00:06:18.080
  • consume you and yet this entire
  • 00:06:18.080 --> 00:06:20.140
  • chapter is about two mountains,
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:22.230
  • Mount Zion, Mount Sinai.
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:25.020
  • It tells us that Mount Sinai--
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:27.050
  • you know, even Moses,
  • 00:06:27.050 --> 00:06:28.240
  • the best of them at that time,
  • 00:06:28.240 --> 00:06:30.280
  • best in all Israel was Moses.
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:32.250
  • He even said, "I exceedingly
  • 00:06:32.250 --> 00:06:34.190
  • fear and quake."
  • 00:06:34.190 --> 00:06:35.290
  • Amen?
  • 00:06:35.290 --> 00:06:36.270
  • It's a mountain that cannot be
  • 00:06:36.270 --> 00:06:37.240
  • touched.
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:38.220
  • The command was awesome.
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:40.100
  • It says that if any animal even
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:42.120
  • or a man touch, it will be dead,
  • 00:06:42.120 --> 00:06:44.130
  • all right?
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.290
  • But you are not come to that
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:46.240
  • mountain, that burned with
  • 00:06:46.240 --> 00:06:48.060
  • darkness and blackness,
  • 00:06:48.060 --> 00:06:49.180
  • and tempest and smoke.
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:51.030
  • You are come to Mount Zion and
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:53.000
  • innumerable company of angels,
  • 00:06:53.000 --> 00:06:55.100
  • amen, to the city of a living
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:56.170
  • God, to Jesus whose blood speaks
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:06:59.180
  • better things than the blood
  • 00:06:59.180 --> 00:07:00.240
  • of Abel.
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:02.130
  • You are come there.
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:03.230
  • So, mountain of law, demands
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:06.100
  • righteousness.
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:07.090
  • Mountain of Zion where Jesus
  • 00:07:07.090 --> 00:07:09.050
  • died, amen?
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:10.270
  • By the way, the highest part of
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:12.230
  • Mount Moriah and Mount Zion's on
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:15.030
  • the other side, where
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:16.010
  • the Holy Spirit came, that's
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:17.090
  • where grace was imparted.
  • 00:07:17.120 --> 00:07:20.120
  • Mount Sinai, God gave law,
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:23.290
  • 3.000 people died.
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:25.120
  • Mount Zion on the day of
  • 00:07:25.120 --> 00:07:26.180
  • Pentecost, God gave the Spirit,
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:28.160
  • 3.000 people were saved.
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:30.170
  • We don't live here,
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:31.280
  • we live here.
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:33.000
  • Even God doesn't live here
  • 00:07:33.000 --> 00:07:34.230
  • anymore.
  • 00:07:34.230 --> 00:07:35.180
  • God has moved mountains.
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:40.020
  • Change address, change address.
  • 00:07:41.090 --> 00:07:44.090
  • People don't even know
  • 00:07:44.090 --> 00:07:44.250
  • God's address.
  • 00:07:44.250 --> 00:07:45.160
  • They still think it's
  • 00:07:45.160 --> 00:07:46.030
  • So, that is the chapter of
  • 00:07:48.210 --> 00:07:50.220
  • Hebrews 12.
  • 00:07:50.220 --> 00:07:51.270
  • At the end we find this,
  • 00:07:51.270 --> 00:07:53.090
  • wherefore we receive a kingdom
  • 00:07:53.090 --> 00:07:54.210
  • that cannot be shaken and down
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:55.230
  • here, everything shakes,
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:57.220
  • everything shakes.
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:07:58.100
  • Down here, Mount Zion, those who
  • 00:07:58.100 --> 00:07:59.260
  • trust in the Lord shall be as
  • 00:07:59.260 --> 00:08:00.270
  • Mount Zion, never shaken.
  • 00:08:00.270 --> 00:08:02.140
  • So, we receive a kingdom which
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:04.040
  • cannot be shaken.
  • 00:08:04.040 --> 00:08:05.000
  • Let us have grace,
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:06.220
  • only by grace.
  • 00:08:06.220 --> 00:08:08.040
  • And then it says, what?
  • 00:08:08.040 --> 00:08:09.070
  • Our God is a consuming fire.
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.120
  • In other words, he will consume
  • 00:08:10.120 --> 00:08:11.050
  • everything that is not grace.
  • 00:08:12.280 --> 00:08:15.280
  • But instead of that, we make
  • 00:08:15.280 --> 00:08:17.230
  • people feel afraid.
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:19.170
  • And by the way, this idea
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:21.110
  • consuming fire has got to do
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:22.240
  • with the two sons of the first
  • 00:08:22.240 --> 00:08:24.260
  • high priest of Israel
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:26.020
  • called Nadab and Abihu.
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:29.060
  • Nadab and Abihu, when the
  • 00:08:29.060 --> 00:08:31.010
  • tabernacle of Moses was set up,
  • 00:08:31.010 --> 00:08:32.270
  • they actually brought fire.
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:35.070
  • There was fire already from God,
  • 00:08:35.070 --> 00:08:37.200
  • all right, but they brought
  • 00:08:37.200 --> 00:08:39.180
  • fire, strange fire.
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:41.190
  • And it's anything, you know?
  • 00:08:41.190 --> 00:08:42.270
  • It can be a lady's makeup,
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:43.250
  • strange fire.
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:45.190
  • Amen?
  • 00:08:45.190 --> 00:08:46.270
  • "Oh, your hair is too long,"
  • 00:08:46.270 --> 00:08:49.060
  • strange fire.
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:50.160
  • "Oh, the music is too loud.
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:51.270
  • Y'all use electric guitar?"
  • 00:08:51.270 --> 00:08:53.200
  • Strange fire.
  • 00:08:53.200 --> 00:08:54.280
  • It all depends on denominations.
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:56.240
  • Depends on their beliefs
  • 00:08:56.240 --> 00:08:57.290
  • and all that.
  • 00:08:57.290 --> 00:08:58.140
  • I think we must go back to
  • 00:08:58.140 --> 00:08:59.010
  • the Bible.
  • 00:08:59.010 --> 00:09:01.070
  • Amen?
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:02.080
  • So, let's go to the story real
  • 00:09:02.080 --> 00:09:02.270
  • quick.
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:03.130
  • There's only two verses, "And
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:04.180
  • Nadab and Abihu, the sons of
  • 00:09:04.180 --> 00:09:06.050
  • Aaron," this is the first verse
  • 00:09:06.050 --> 00:09:07.100
  • of chapter 10, "they took either
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:09.010
  • them his censer," that's the
  • 00:09:09.010 --> 00:09:10.190
  • place you put the powder, all
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:12.020
  • right, and all the, you know,
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:14.130
  • the incense.
  • 00:09:14.130 --> 00:09:17.060
  • "They put fire therein,
  • 00:09:17.060 --> 00:09:19.010
  • and put incense thereon,
  • 00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:20.230
  • and offered strange fire."
  • 00:09:20.230 --> 00:09:23.070
  • Say, "strange fire."
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:24.230
  • "Before the Lord, which he
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:25.190
  • commanded them not."
  • 00:09:25.190 --> 00:09:27.070
  • See what happened.
  • 00:09:27.070 --> 00:09:28.020
  • "And there went up fire from
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:29.100
  • the Lord, and devoured them,
  • 00:09:29.100 --> 00:09:31.060
  • and they died before the Lord."
  • 00:09:31.060 --> 00:09:33.130
  • Wow.
  • 00:09:33.130 --> 00:09:34.250
  • Now, why did they die?
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:38.010
  • So, today people try to use this
  • 00:09:38.010 --> 00:09:39.180
  • and just anyhow brand strange
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:41.270
  • fire, strange fire.
  • 00:09:41.270 --> 00:09:43.040
  • When something is strange
  • 00:09:43.040 --> 00:09:44.020
  • to your ears, strange fire.
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:45.220
  • They never hear, jess,
  • 00:09:45.220 --> 00:09:47.000
  • Christian jess, strange fire.
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:49.050
  • Amen?
  • 00:09:49.050 --> 00:09:50.070
  • Just because they never heard
  • 00:09:50.070 --> 00:09:51.180
  • jess they call it, you know,
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:53.240
  • strange fire.
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:55.210
  • Just because you are old, all
  • 00:09:55.210 --> 00:09:57.050
  • right, does not mean the younger
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:09:59.090
  • generation is out of it as long
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:00.250
  • Jesus is in the center
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:01.280
  • and their heart is for him.
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:04.180
  • Amen?
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:05.270
  • Are you listening, people?
  • 00:10:05.270 --> 00:10:06.290
  • Okay, what was the problem here?
  • 00:10:06.290 --> 00:10:09.180
  • The problem with the strange
  • 00:10:09.180 --> 00:10:10.100
  • fire means they took fire from
  • 00:10:10.100 --> 00:10:12.010
  • other places to light
  • 00:10:12.010 --> 00:10:14.230
  • the incense before God because
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:17.200
  • Look at--this is chapter 10,
  • 00:10:19.220 --> 00:10:21.010
  • first verse.
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:21.240
  • Look at the last verse of
  • 00:10:21.240 --> 00:10:22.220
  • chapter 9, "And Nadab--and there
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:24.280
  • came a fire," verse 24,
  • 00:10:24.280 --> 00:10:26.150
  • "and there came a fire out from
  • 00:10:26.150 --> 00:10:27.220
  • before the Lord and consumed
  • 00:10:27.220 --> 00:10:30.030
  • upon the altar the burnt
  • 00:10:30.030 --> 00:10:31.160
  • offering and the fat:
  • 00:10:31.160 --> 00:10:33.050
  • Which when all the people saw,
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:34.250
  • they shouted, and fell on their
  • 00:10:34.250 --> 00:10:36.060
  • faces."
  • 00:10:36.060 --> 00:10:37.050
  • Can you see that?
  • 00:10:37.050 --> 00:10:37.270
  • In other words, when
  • 00:10:37.270 --> 00:10:38.260
  • prepared, there was a place,
  • 00:10:41.260 --> 00:10:43.160
  • a four corner shaped altar for
  • 00:10:44.260 --> 00:10:47.260
  • burnt offering because Jesus'
  • 00:10:47.260 --> 00:10:49.090
  • cross is four corners, amen,
  • 00:10:49.090 --> 00:10:51.020
  • Amen?
  • 00:10:51.020 --> 00:10:52.030
  • And all the sin of Israel is put
  • 00:10:52.270 --> 00:10:55.270
  • on the ox.
  • 00:10:55.270 --> 00:10:58.270
  • Okay, the ox is killed,
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:00.180
  • he's burned.
  • 00:11:00.180 --> 00:11:01.080
  • The fire comes down from where?
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:03.140
  • From heaven.
  • 00:11:03.140 --> 00:11:04.030
  • And the fire consumes where?
  • 00:11:04.030 --> 00:11:06.010
  • The altar of burnt offering.
  • 00:11:06.010 --> 00:11:07.270
  • So, Jesus on the cross, instead
  • 00:11:07.270 --> 00:11:09.210
  • of the fire coming to you
  • 00:11:09.210 --> 00:11:10.230
  • and your family, the fire of
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:12.020
  • judgment coming to your
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:12.290
  • children, it came on Jesus.
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:15.020
  • He became like a heat-seeking
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:16.000
  • missile to save all of us
  • 00:11:16.000 --> 00:11:17.280
  • and the fire came to him.
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:20.010
  • He absorbed the fire and cried,
  • 00:11:20.010 --> 00:11:21.150
  • "Finished!"
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:22.250
  • Amen.
  • 00:11:22.250 --> 00:11:23.200
  • Amen?
  • 00:11:23.200 --> 00:11:24.210
  • So, he is the altar of
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:25.200
  • burnt offering, right?
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:27.120
  • But the problem is that these
  • 00:11:27.120 --> 00:11:28.070
  • people--so the fire is burning.
  • 00:11:28.070 --> 00:11:30.000
  • The fire is burning
  • 00:11:30.000 --> 00:11:30.200
  • and the Bible says that the law
  • 00:11:30.200 --> 00:11:31.100
  • is the fire must never go out.
  • 00:11:31.100 --> 00:11:33.030
  • They will put wood down there
  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:34.010
  • and the fire originally came
  • 00:11:34.010 --> 00:11:35.020
  • from heaven and it's the fire
  • 00:11:35.020 --> 00:11:36.100
  • of the sacrifice.
  • 00:11:36.100 --> 00:11:37.170
  • What they did, these two sons
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:38.260
  • of the priest, they took fire
  • 00:11:38.260 --> 00:11:40.290
  • from elsewhere.
  • 00:11:40.290 --> 00:11:41.230
  • Maybe they took two stones,
  • 00:11:41.230 --> 00:11:43.100
  • two flint stones and they made
  • 00:11:43.100 --> 00:11:45.120
  • their own fire.
  • 00:11:45.120 --> 00:11:47.060
  • One was called Fred.
  • 00:11:47.240 --> 00:11:50.240
  • So, how many know that that is
  • 00:11:53.170 --> 00:11:54.140
  • called strange fire?
  • 00:11:54.140 --> 00:11:55.170
  • So today, how do we apply it?
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:56.050
  • Very simple.
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:57.080
  • Any message, any song that we do
  • 00:11:59.000 --> 00:12:02.020
  • that is not based on the work of
  • 00:12:02.020 --> 00:12:03.200
  • the Jesus Christ is strange
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:05.130
  • fire.
  • 00:12:05.130 --> 00:12:06.240
  • And today when you preach grace,
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:08.040
  • you preach the centrality of the
  • 00:12:08.040 --> 00:12:09.040
  • person of Christ and the cross,
  • 00:12:09.040 --> 00:12:10.230
  • people say it's strange fire.
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:13.000
  • How the whole thing has gone,
  • 00:12:13.000 --> 00:12:14.040
  • In the world we live in today,
  • 00:12:16.090 --> 00:12:17.170
  • everything is topsy-turvy.
  • 00:12:17.170 --> 00:12:19.230
  • People who ought to be ashamed
  • 00:12:19.230 --> 00:12:21.080
  • are glorifying, glorying
  • 00:12:21.080 --> 00:12:23.120
  • in their shame.
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:25.070
  • People who ought to be happy and
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:27.270
  • glorious are hiding themselves,
  • 00:12:27.270 --> 00:12:30.080
  • refusing to let even their
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:31.150
  • colleagues know they are
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:32.220
  • Christians.
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.020
  • What a topsy-turvy world, kings
  • 00:12:34.020 --> 00:12:36.030
  • hiding themselves, princesses
  • 00:12:36.030 --> 00:12:38.160
  • refuse to reveal her identity.
  • 00:12:38.160 --> 00:12:41.130
  • Sad, people with power to pray
  • 00:12:42.130 --> 00:12:45.130
  • for the sick hiding their gifts.
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:49.000
  • And here comes another thing,
  • 00:12:49.000 --> 00:12:50.100
  • another revelation I want to
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:51.020
  • share with you.
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:51.250
  • You know why people hide
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:52.100
  • their gifts?
  • 00:12:52.100 --> 00:12:53.100
  • You know why people hide?
  • 00:12:53.100 --> 00:12:54.010
  • You know why people hide,
  • 00:12:54.010 --> 00:12:56.110
  • you know, hide their talents,
  • 00:12:56.110 --> 00:12:57.290
  • hide their gifts and they use
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:12:59.140
  • money in a irresponsible way in
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:02.150
  • the body of Christ, would you
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:03.200
  • like to know?
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:04.110
  • I'll tell you Jesus himself
  • 00:13:04.110 --> 00:13:05.240
  • gives us the answer.
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:06.230
  • Jesus says a man was about
  • 00:13:06.230 --> 00:13:08.200
  • to go far away, all right?
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:10.020
  • He gathered ten of his servants
  • 00:13:10.020 --> 00:13:12.060
  • together and he gave all of them
  • 00:13:12.060 --> 00:13:13.230
  • 10 minas.
  • 00:13:13.230 --> 00:13:15.210
  • Minas is a Latin, Latin word
  • 00:13:15.210 --> 00:13:17.180
  • for--your King James use the
  • 00:13:17.180 --> 00:13:19.160
  • word "pounds," they give them
  • 00:13:19.160 --> 00:13:20.120
  • 10 pounds but actually if I say
  • 00:13:20.120 --> 00:13:22.120
  • pounds, you will have the idea
  • 00:13:22.120 --> 00:13:23.210
  • of British pound.
  • 00:13:23.210 --> 00:13:25.010
  • So, he gave them, he was going
  • 00:13:25.010 --> 00:13:26.070
  • away for a long journey,
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:27.230
  • gathered 10 of his servants,
  • 00:13:27.230 --> 00:13:29.000
  • gave them 10 minas, 10 minas is
  • 00:13:29.000 --> 00:13:31.270
  • actually 3 months' salary, okay?
  • 00:13:32.060 --> 00:13:35.060
  • So, after a long journey,
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:36.150
  • he came back.
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:37.110
  • He asked for accountability.
  • 00:13:37.110 --> 00:13:38.130
  • The first guy says, "Master,
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:40.090
  • your mina has gained 10,
  • 00:13:40.280 --> 00:13:43.280
  • another 10 minas,
  • 00:13:43.280 --> 00:13:44.280
  • another 3 months' salary."
  • 00:13:44.280 --> 00:13:46.150
  • The lord says,
  • 00:13:46.150 --> 00:13:47.020
  • "You are faithful.
  • 00:13:47.020 --> 00:13:48.020
  • Well done, good and faithful
  • 00:13:48.020 --> 00:13:48.260
  • servant.
  • 00:13:48.260 --> 00:13:49.130
  • Have authority over ten cities."
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:52.230
  • Then the next one came and said,
  • 00:13:52.230 --> 00:13:53.270
  • "Yours have gained
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:55.040
  • 5 other minas."
  • 00:13:55.090 --> 00:13:58.090
  • And he says, "Great, you have
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:13:59.190
  • authority over five cities."
  • 00:13:59.190 --> 00:14:01.240
  • I want to tell y'all something.
  • 00:14:01.240 --> 00:14:02.290
  • Y'all think that this is just
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:03.180
  • a parable.
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:04.180
  • When Jesus returns, there are
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:05.260
  • different responsibilities
  • 00:14:05.260 --> 00:14:06.250
  • assigned for different people.
  • 00:14:06.250 --> 00:14:09.020
  • You know that in heaven, you're
  • 00:14:09.020 --> 00:14:11.080
  • not playing the harp all
  • 00:14:11.080 --> 00:14:11.260
  • the time.
  • 00:14:11.260 --> 00:14:13.200
  • We are ruling, you know?
  • 00:14:13.200 --> 00:14:15.180
  • Do you understand or not?
  • 00:14:15.180 --> 00:14:16.100
  • There are creatures and
  • 00:14:16.100 --> 00:14:17.020
  • creation, I don't know whatever
  • 00:14:17.020 --> 00:14:18.040
  • creation, but we are ruling.
  • 00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:22.010
  • Someone is responsible
  • 00:14:22.010 --> 00:14:22.210
  • for ten cities
  • 00:14:22.210 --> 00:14:23.150
  • because of faithfulness.
  • 00:14:23.150 --> 00:14:26.080
  • Some is responsible for five
  • 00:14:26.080 --> 00:14:28.060
  • because of his faithfulness.
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:30.010
  • The more faithful you are,
  • 00:14:30.010 --> 00:14:31.290
  • it's rewarded accordingly.
  • 00:14:31.290 --> 00:14:34.220
  • Even our bodily capacities, if
  • 00:14:34.220 --> 00:14:36.260
  • you want to find out about this,
  • 00:14:36.260 --> 00:14:38.030
  • because of time I'm trying to
  • 00:14:38.030 --> 00:14:38.280
  • get to real fast.
  • 00:14:38.280 --> 00:14:40.030
  • In 1 Corinthians 15 it says even
  • 00:14:40.030 --> 00:14:41.220
  • one star, the glory of one star
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:44.010
  • defers from another.
  • 00:14:44.010 --> 00:14:45.110
  • Even stars, their brightness is
  • 00:14:45.110 --> 00:14:47.110
  • not the same.
  • 00:14:47.110 --> 00:14:49.090
  • So, likewise for our terrestrial
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:53.030
  • body, all right, our bodies is
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:57.290
  • planted natural.
  • 00:14:57.290 --> 00:14:59.130
  • It comes out supernatural.
  • 00:14:59.130 --> 00:15:01.060
  • When Jesus returns, we have
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:02.280
  • a brand-new body but different
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:04.050
  • capacities.
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:06.070
  • Some will have strong
  • 00:15:06.070 --> 00:15:07.020
  • intellectual capacities like
  • 00:15:07.020 --> 00:15:09.140
  • no one has never seen it.
  • 00:15:09.140 --> 00:15:11.190
  • Some will have lesser but they
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:13.060
  • have other strong talents.
  • 00:15:13.060 --> 00:15:15.010
  • Whatever you have used your
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:16.060
  • talent for on this earth this
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:18.130
  • side of heaven, in heaven, in
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:20.020
  • the new rule on earth when Jesus
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:22.190
  • returns, first on earth, then
  • 00:15:22.190 --> 00:15:24.090
  • heaven, on earth you'll be using
  • 00:15:24.090 --> 00:15:26.250
  • those gifts forever.
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:29.240
  • Your new body will never die
  • 00:15:29.280 --> 00:15:32.280
  • again but even your body,
  • 00:15:32.280 --> 00:15:34.230
  • and my body, our bodies will
  • 00:15:34.230 --> 00:15:36.010
  • have different capacities.
  • 00:15:36.010 --> 00:15:38.010
  • Do you understand or not?
  • 00:15:38.010 --> 00:15:39.250
  • Some will be more, you know,
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:41.140
  • like, that's why I'm saying all
  • 00:15:41.140 --> 00:15:42.280
  • this Marvel men and all that,
  • 00:15:42.280 --> 00:15:44.180
  • Superman, all the different
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:45.180
  • things, they're actually not far
  • 00:15:45.180 --> 00:15:46.220
  • from the truth that's what
  • 00:15:46.220 --> 00:15:48.170
  • the Bible says will happen in
  • 00:15:48.170 --> 00:15:49.150
  • the millennia, different bodily
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:52.230
  • capacities but glorified body
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:15:55.000
  • nonetheless.
  • 00:15:55.000 --> 00:15:56.060
  • So, let's be faithful to
  • 00:15:56.060 --> 00:15:57.060
  • the Lord.
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:58.210
  • What you're doing is
  • 00:15:58.210 --> 00:15:59.070
  • not mundane.
  • 00:15:59.070 --> 00:16:00.110
  • It has internal consequences.
  • 00:16:00.110 --> 00:16:02.030
  • Amen?
  • 00:16:02.030 --> 00:16:03.030
  • So, here we go,
  • 00:16:03.030 --> 00:16:04.220
  • you understand that.
  • 00:16:04.220 --> 00:16:05.100
  • Is it clear to you?
  • 00:16:05.100 --> 00:16:07.020
  • "Yeah but, Pastor Prince, Paul
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:07.240
  • says I was with you in weakness,
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:10.260
  • and fear,
  • 00:16:10.260 --> 00:16:11.180
  • and in much trembling."
  • 00:16:11.180 --> 00:16:14.080
  • You need to understand
  • 00:16:14.080 --> 00:16:15.060
  • Hebrewism.
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:16.120
  • That fear and trembling doesn't
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:17.240
  • mean we must fear and tremble
  • 00:16:17.240 --> 00:16:19.010
  • before God.
  • 00:16:19.010 --> 00:16:20.020
  • Let me just say this to you,
  • 00:16:20.020 --> 00:16:21.260
  • all right, so there are times
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:24.290
  • I worship God with reverence.
  • 00:16:24.290 --> 00:16:26.280
  • I reverence God.
  • 00:16:26.280 --> 00:16:28.110
  • I don't believe that people--I
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:30.290
  • have my own opinion.
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:32.200
  • You know, I don't like people
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:33.100
  • just going around saying,
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:33.280
  • "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus."
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:35.030
  • It's okay, nothing wrong with
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:36.040
  • saying Jesus but I like for them
  • 00:16:36.040 --> 00:16:37.130
  • once in a while to say,
  • 00:16:37.130 --> 00:16:38.070
  • "The Lord Jesus" or
  • 00:16:38.070 --> 00:16:39.120
  • "The Lord Jesus Christ."
  • 00:16:39.120 --> 00:16:40.080
  • Now, this is something
  • 00:16:40.080 --> 00:16:40.270
  • my pastors know, all right?
  • 00:16:40.270 --> 00:16:42.220
  • So, I believe in reverence.
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:44.040
  • I believe in, you know,
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:46.080
  • mentioning the name of Jesus
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:48.040
  • more often than people are doing
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:50.140
  • nowadays.
  • 00:16:50.140 --> 00:16:51.010
  • It's always,
  • 00:16:51.010 --> 00:16:51.160
  • "God, God, God, God."
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:52.170
  • You see, the spirit that's
  • 00:16:52.170 --> 00:16:53.090
  • released in the last days is
  • 00:16:53.090 --> 00:16:54.160
  • not anti-God, it is Antichrist.
  • 00:16:55.010 --> 00:16:58.010
  • It's the person of Jesus.
  • 00:16:58.010 --> 00:16:59.270
  • So, I am reverenced.
  • 00:16:59.270 --> 00:17:01.220
  • When I worship God, there's
  • 00:17:01.220 --> 00:17:03.000
  • certain songs I'm just,
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:05.220
  • you know, I don't call him
  • 00:17:05.220 --> 00:17:06.170
  • Father even, worship him as God.
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:08.150
  • There are times I just love to
  • 00:17:08.150 --> 00:17:09.030
  • worship him as God.
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:10.000
  • He is my Father and the name
  • 00:17:10.000 --> 00:17:11.250
  • that he wants to be known by
  • 00:17:11.250 --> 00:17:13.270
  • more than any other name is
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:15.050
  • Father, the name that
  • 00:17:15.050 --> 00:17:16.190
  • Jesus reveals.
  • 00:17:16.190 --> 00:17:17.130
  • So, I call him Abba Father.
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:19.100
  • I call him heavenly Father,
  • 00:17:19.100 --> 00:17:20.170
  • or I can call him daddy Father
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:21.190
  • or Father in heaven.
  • 00:17:21.190 --> 00:17:23.140
  • You must say it in the spirit
  • 00:17:23.140 --> 00:17:24.230
  • of sonship and not a spirit of
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:27.130
  • slavish fear, spirit of bondage.
  • 00:17:27.130 --> 00:17:29.260
  • Are you with me so far?
  • 00:17:29.260 --> 00:17:31.040
  • It's all about spirit thing,
  • 00:17:31.040 --> 00:17:32.190
  • you see, all right?
  • 00:17:32.190 --> 00:17:34.000
  • So you say, "Yeah, but the Bible
  • 00:17:34.000 --> 00:17:35.070
  • says work out your
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:36.000
  • own salvation."
  • 00:17:36.000 --> 00:17:36.180
  • It's in Philippians, all right?
  • 00:17:38.210 --> 00:17:40.040
  • It says, "Therefore, my beloved,
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:41.100
  • as you have always obeyed, not
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:42.140
  • as in my presence only, but now
  • 00:17:42.140 --> 00:17:43.240
  • much more in my absence, work
  • 00:17:43.240 --> 00:17:45.130
  • out your own salvation with fear
  • 00:17:45.130 --> 00:17:46.250
  • and trembling," there is it,
  • 00:17:46.250 --> 00:17:47.240
  • fear and trembling, "for it is
  • 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:49.040
  • God who works in you both
  • 00:17:49.040 --> 00:17:50.120
  • to will and to do for
  • 00:17:50.120 --> 00:17:51.260
  • His good pleasure."
  • 00:17:51.260 --> 00:17:52.290
  • I don't know how many preachers
  • 00:17:52.290 --> 00:17:54.080
  • that I have met who have
  • 00:17:54.080 --> 00:17:56.180
  • challenged me on grace and
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:59.060
  • usually one of their verses that
  • 00:17:59.060 --> 00:18:01.290
  • they bring up is this verse,
  • 00:18:01.290 --> 00:18:03.110
  • work out your own salvation with
  • 00:18:03.110 --> 00:18:04.070
  • fear and trembling.
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:04.270
  • I feel like saying, then what is
  • 00:18:04.270 --> 00:18:06.050
  • the gospel?
  • 00:18:06.050 --> 00:18:07.070
  • If the way they're interpreting
  • 00:18:07.070 --> 00:18:08.150
  • work out your own salvation is
  • 00:18:08.150 --> 00:18:09.260
  • it says work out.
  • 00:18:11.280 --> 00:18:12.260
  • You cannot work out something
  • 00:18:12.260 --> 00:18:14.240
  • that is not in you.
  • 00:18:14.240 --> 00:18:16.080
  • You can only work out what has
  • 00:18:16.080 --> 00:18:18.010
  • been worked in.
  • 00:18:18.010 --> 00:18:19.120
  • He's not telling you to
  • 00:18:19.120 --> 00:18:20.010
  • work--he's writing to believers,
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:21.240
  • y'all, all right?
  • 00:18:21.240 --> 00:18:24.090
  • It says work out.
  • 00:18:24.090 --> 00:18:25.180
  • Like for example, you're having
  • 00:18:25.180 --> 00:18:27.170
  • thoughts of love for your wife.
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:30.070
  • You're having feelings of love
  • 00:18:30.070 --> 00:18:31.030
  • for your wife.
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:32.030
  • Don't just love let it die
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:33.080
  • there.
  • 00:18:33.080 --> 00:18:34.040
  • Go to her and tell her,
  • 00:18:34.040 --> 00:18:35.010
  • "I love you."
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:36.160
  • And she says, "You know, I was
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:37.230
  • just thinking whether, you know,
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:39.160
  • you still love me or not,"
  • 00:18:39.160 --> 00:18:41.140
  • which happened to me.
  • 00:18:41.140 --> 00:18:42.010
  • Y'all know the story,
  • 00:18:42.010 --> 00:18:42.230
  • right, right?
  • 00:18:42.230 --> 00:18:44.040
  • My football days.
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:45.190
  • I just got married, I still
  • 00:18:45.190 --> 00:18:46.090
  • loved football and I have
  • 00:18:46.090 --> 00:18:48.080
  • a bride of a few months
  • 00:18:48.080 --> 00:18:50.130
  • in another room.
  • 00:18:50.130 --> 00:18:51.210
  • We had a small house, one room,
  • 00:18:51.210 --> 00:18:53.130
  • one hall and she was there.
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:55.220
  • I don't know what she's doing
  • 00:18:55.220 --> 00:18:56.130
  • but it's important to see.
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:58.170
  • If I move and talk to her,
  • 00:18:58.170 --> 00:19:00.100
  • there'll be a goal scored.
  • 00:19:00.100 --> 00:19:01.280
  • In those days they don't have,
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.040
  • you know, those recording
  • 00:19:03.040 --> 00:19:05.090
  • and all that.
  • 00:19:05.090 --> 00:19:06.220
  • I didn't buy it.
  • 00:19:06.220 --> 00:19:07.210
  • We cannot afford at that time.
  • 00:19:07.210 --> 00:19:09.000
  • So, all of a sudden, I felt,
  • 00:19:09.000 --> 00:19:10.000
  • watching TV, I felt love for my
  • 00:19:10.000 --> 00:19:11.040
  • wife, you know?
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:12.180
  • It was being worked in me so I,
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:14.140
  • at one point, I got up.
  • 00:19:14.140 --> 00:19:17.140
  • I don't know always get up,
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:19.270
  • being honest.
  • 00:19:19.270 --> 00:19:21.130
  • At that point I got up and go to
  • 00:19:21.130 --> 00:19:22.230
  • her and just hug her and say,
  • 00:19:22.230 --> 00:19:24.010
  • "I love you."
  • 00:19:24.010 --> 00:19:25.050
  • And tears start flowing.
  • 00:19:25.050 --> 00:19:26.160
  • "I was just thinking only a few
  • 00:19:26.160 --> 00:19:28.280
  • months into marriage, you are
  • 00:19:28.280 --> 00:19:31.050
  • taking me for granted."
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:33.060
  • Amen, Jesus knows.
  • 00:19:36.140 --> 00:19:37.270
  • So, when God works it in,
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:39.070
  • you work it out.
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:40.270
  • Next verse, "For it is God who
  • 00:19:40.270 --> 00:19:42.000
  • works in you."
  • 00:19:42.000 --> 00:19:43.060
  • You see?
  • 00:19:43.060 --> 00:19:43.250
  • You work out because, because,
  • 00:19:43.250 --> 00:19:45.090
  • for means because, it is God who
  • 00:19:45.090 --> 00:19:46.220
  • works in you.
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:47.230
  • Both to will, giving you
  • 00:19:47.230 --> 00:19:49.070
  • the willingness and giving you
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:50.240
  • the good pleasure.
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:51.250
  • This is a wonderful, fantastic
  • 00:19:51.250 --> 00:19:53.090
  • verse because a lot of people
  • 00:19:53.090 --> 00:19:54.160
  • think when God wants you to do
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:19:55.270
  • something, all right, even
  • 00:19:55.270 --> 00:19:56.280
  • though you're not willing,
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:19:58.200
  • you just do it.
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:20:00.230
  • You know, but actually this
  • 00:20:00.230 --> 00:20:01.130
  • verse says, it is God supplying
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:03.020
  • you the willingness and then God
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:05.240
  • supplying you the pleasure of
  • 00:20:05.240 --> 00:20:07.230
  • doing it.
  • 00:20:07.230 --> 00:20:08.280
  • Ha, ha, do you see that?
  • 00:20:08.280 --> 00:20:10.060
  • It is God who works in you both
  • 00:20:10.060 --> 00:20:11.020
  • the willingness
  • 00:20:11.020 --> 00:20:12.020
  • and the good pleasure.
  • 00:20:12.020 --> 00:20:13.200
  • God is so good.
  • 00:20:13.200 --> 00:20:15.060
  • It's like God is telling you,
  • 00:20:15.060 --> 00:20:16.130
  • you love Kentucky Fried Chicken,
  • 00:20:16.130 --> 00:20:18.100
  • right, and you have not been
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:19.290
  • eating lately.
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:22.230
  • You've not been feeling well
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:23.230
  • and now you are back in
  • 00:20:23.230 --> 00:20:24.270
  • robust health and I put
  • 00:20:24.270 --> 00:20:27.030
  • Kentucky Fried Chicken
  • 00:20:27.030 --> 00:20:27.270
  • in front of you.
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:28.190
  • Say, "Wait, wait, wait, wait,
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:29.210
  • wait, all right, I want you
  • 00:20:29.210 --> 00:20:31.280
  • to only eat if there's an urge
  • 00:20:31.280 --> 00:20:33.240
  • inside.
  • 00:20:33.240 --> 00:20:35.020
  • Don't eat for the sake of
  • 00:20:35.020 --> 00:20:35.230
  • eating, all right?"
  • 00:20:35.230 --> 00:20:37.210
  • The guy says, "Brother, the urge
  • 00:20:37.210 --> 00:20:38.290
  • is there all the time.
  • 00:20:38.290 --> 00:20:40.100
  • The moment I smell it, you know,
  • 00:20:40.100 --> 00:20:41.100
  • behind the door, it's there."
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.220
  • It's been worked in and now he's
  • 00:20:42.220 --> 00:20:44.120
  • working it out with fear
  • 00:20:44.120 --> 00:20:46.190
  • and trembling, all right?
  • 00:20:48.000 --> 00:20:51.000
  • So, fear and trembling, then we
  • 00:20:51.000 --> 00:20:52.250
  • come to fear and trembling.
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:53.230
  • What is fear and trembling?
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:54.210
  • What is fear and trembling?
  • 00:20:54.210 --> 00:20:55.190
  • Fear and trembling is Hebrewism,
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:57.270
  • a saying.
  • 00:20:57.270 --> 00:20:58.290
  • Like you say, you know, outside
  • 00:20:58.290 --> 00:21:00.110
  • it's raining cats and dogs now.
  • 00:21:00.110 --> 00:21:02.090
  • Let's go and see what kind of
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:04.010
  • dogs.
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.020
  • Let's go and see what kind of
  • 00:21:05.020 --> 00:21:05.250
  • cats.
  • 00:21:05.250 --> 00:21:06.190
  • Duh?
  • 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:08.000
  • It's an expression, right?
  • 00:21:08.000 --> 00:21:10.100
  • The Americans have it,
  • 00:21:10.100 --> 00:21:11.220
  • the British have it,
  • 00:21:11.220 --> 00:21:12.130
  • Singaporeans have it.
  • 00:21:12.130 --> 00:21:14.030
  • Amen?
  • 00:21:14.030 --> 00:21:16.200
  • Doesn't mean it's raining cats
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:17.180
  • and dogs.
  • 00:21:17.180 --> 00:21:18.150
  • It means it's so heavy, it's
  • 00:21:18.150 --> 00:21:20.050
  • Are y'all with me so far?
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:25.020
  • Understand the cats and dogs?
  • 00:21:25.020 --> 00:21:25.200
  • Hebrewism is fear and trembling
  • 00:21:25.200 --> 00:21:28.100
  • means you are awed.
  • 00:21:28.100 --> 00:21:29.290
  • Wow, it's like, whoa, whoa.
  • 00:21:31.110 --> 00:21:34.110
  • It's like, cool, man.
  • 00:21:34.110 --> 00:21:37.010
  • It's like so awesome.
  • 00:21:37.010 --> 00:21:38.050
  • You say, "Get out of here, man."
  • 00:21:38.050 --> 00:21:39.210
  • It's like, you know, if the guy
  • 00:21:39.210 --> 00:21:41.030
  • really get out, you can't hear
  • 00:21:41.030 --> 00:21:41.280
  • the news, you know?
  • 00:21:41.280 --> 00:21:43.120
  • But it's an expression.
  • 00:21:43.120 --> 00:21:44.200
  • You are bad, man, you are bad.
  • 00:21:44.200 --> 00:21:46.250
  • But actually you are good.
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:48.050
  • That's why they say you are bad.
  • 00:21:52.130 --> 00:21:55.130
  • "You're bad.
  • 00:21:55.130 --> 00:21:56.080
  • You're bad, man.
  • 00:21:56.080 --> 00:21:57.280
  • Hey, brother, you're bad.
  • 00:21:57.280 --> 00:21:59.160
  • You're a bad brother," you know?
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:01.180

  • You see, in all this fear and
  • 00:22:08.290 --> 00:22:10.060
  • trembling, that means with all
  • 00:22:10.060 --> 00:22:11.070
  • that God has done for you,
  • 00:22:11.070 --> 00:22:12.220

  • about him, you don't.
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:19.280
  • You pray for your boss.
