  • 00:00:10.190 --> 00:00:11.060
  • the Bible says in Isaiah 40
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:13.270
  • it says that even
  • 00:00:13.270 --> 00:00:15.000
  • the youths shall faint, even
  • 00:00:15.000 --> 00:00:17.120
  • the youths shall faint, and
  • 00:00:17.120 --> 00:00:19.180
  • the young man shall utterly fall
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:21.190

  • shall renew their strength.
  • 00:00:23.110 --> 00:00:25.100
  • They shall mount up
  • 00:00:25.100 --> 00:00:26.130
  • with wings as eagles.
  • 00:00:26.130 --> 00:00:28.180
  • They shall run and not be weary.
  • 00:00:28.180 --> 00:00:31.030
  • They shall walk and not faint.
  • 00:00:32.010 --> 00:00:35.010
  • What's the secret?
  • 00:00:35.010 --> 00:00:36.050
  • They that wait upon the Lord.
  • 00:00:36.050 --> 00:00:37.070
  • You will run and not be weary,
  • 00:00:37.070 --> 00:00:38.190
  • you will mount up with wings
  • 00:00:38.190 --> 00:00:39.190
  • as eagles.
  • 00:00:39.190 --> 00:00:40.130
  • God will renew your youth
  • 00:00:40.130 --> 00:00:41.160
  • like Caleb at the age of 85.
  • 00:00:41.160 --> 00:00:43.220
  • He told Joshua,
  • 00:00:43.220 --> 00:00:45.180
  • "Give me this mountain."
  • 00:00:45.180 --> 00:00:47.130
  • Like Moses as the age of 120
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:49.010
  • when he died, the Bible says his
  • 00:00:49.010 --> 00:00:51.020
  • eyesight was not dim, neither
  • 00:00:51.020 --> 00:00:52.190
  • his natural force abated.
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:54.110
  • God did it for them and
  • 00:00:54.110 --> 00:00:56.080
  • Moses was under law,
  • 00:00:56.080 --> 00:00:57.190
  • Caleb was under law.
  • 00:00:57.190 --> 00:00:59.010
  • How much more we have
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:00.090
  • a better covenant.
  • 00:01:00.090 --> 00:01:01.040
  • Their law was based,
  • 00:01:01.040 --> 00:01:02.270
  • their covenant was based on
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:04.080
  • the blood of bulls and goats.
  • 00:01:04.080 --> 00:01:06.100
  • Our covenant's based on the
  • 00:01:06.100 --> 00:01:08.020
  • imperishable beautiful precious
  • 00:01:08.020 --> 00:01:10.160
  • blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • - Joseph Prince: God is
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:24.000
  • so good, amen?
  • 00:01:24.130 --> 00:01:27.130
  • The final part is something that
  • 00:01:27.130 --> 00:01:28.200
  • I think will be very interesting
  • 00:01:28.200 --> 00:01:30.010
  • for those of you who feel like
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:32.270
  • your age is advancing,
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:35.020
  • all right?
  • 00:01:35.020 --> 00:01:35.260
  • When I was 12 years old,
  • 00:01:35.260 --> 00:01:37.180
  • I thought 30 was very old
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:40.170
  • and then I hit 30.
  • 00:01:40.170 --> 00:01:43.090
  • Then I thought being 40
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:45.140
  • was very, very old.
  • 00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:47.290
  • I remember when my mom was 40,
  • 00:01:47.290 --> 00:01:49.190
  • when my mom was 30s, you know,
  • 00:01:49.190 --> 00:01:50.280
  • I thought she was very old,
  • 00:01:50.280 --> 00:01:52.150
  • you know?
  • 00:01:52.150 --> 00:01:53.070
  • And y'all look at me like,
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:54.120
  • "I don't know what you're
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.110
  • talking about," all right?
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:56.210
  • But whatever age you put down
  • 00:01:56.210 --> 00:01:59.050
  • there as the age of growing old,
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:03.020
  • I just wanna let you know
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:04.130
  • something, okay?
  • 00:02:04.130 --> 00:02:05.160
  • The Bible says this in
  • 00:02:05.160 --> 00:02:07.060
  • Psalms 92--look up here.
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:08.290
  • "The righteous shall flourish
  • 00:02:09.110 --> 00:02:12.110
  • like a palm tree, He shall grow
  • 00:02:12.110 --> 00:02:15.060
  • like a cedar in Lebanon."
  • 00:02:15.060 --> 00:02:17.240
  • The cedars of Lebanon
  • 00:02:17.240 --> 00:02:19.000
  • is a very famous cedar.
  • 00:02:19.000 --> 00:02:21.050
  • By the way, let me show you
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:21.260
  • cedar, a picture of a cedar.
  • 00:02:21.260 --> 00:02:23.100
  • It's a majestic tree,
  • 00:02:23.100 --> 00:02:26.030
  • beautiful tree.
  • 00:02:26.030 --> 00:02:28.100
  • And the cedars of Lebanon
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:29.220
  • is the cedars that's used
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:31.070
  • for the temple of Solomon,
  • 00:02:31.070 --> 00:02:32.150
  • the most expensive building
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:34.170
  • ever built as a house of God.
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:37.260
  • It's majestic, all right?
  • 00:02:38.120 --> 00:02:41.120
  • Now, Psalms 92 says,
  • 00:02:41.120 --> 00:02:42.190
  • "The righteous shall flourish
  • 00:02:42.190 --> 00:02:45.010
  • like a palm tree."
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:46.120
  • A palm tree, even hundred years
  • 00:02:46.120 --> 00:02:47.130
  • old can still produce oil.
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:50.160
  • Isn't it amazing?
  • 00:02:50.160 --> 00:02:53.150
  • A palm tree is so fruitful
  • 00:02:53.150 --> 00:02:55.100
  • you see all kinds of seeds
  • 00:02:55.100 --> 00:02:56.060
  • everywhere.
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:57.050
  • Yow, come on, come on, come on.
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:02:59.220
  • Old age still fruitful.
  • 00:02:59.220 --> 00:03:01.290
  • He shall grow like a cedar
  • 00:03:01.290 --> 00:03:03.070
  • in Lebanon, amen?
  • 00:03:03.070 --> 00:03:04.200
  • The cedar wood, by the way--I
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:07.080
  • learned this when I was in
  • 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:08.030
  • the Rockies many years ago
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:10.100
  • with Wendy for a holiday.
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:12.000
  • We passed by cedars and I
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:12.270
  • stopped--you know it's
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:13.240
  • interesting the Bible, you know,
  • 00:03:13.240 --> 00:03:14.180
  • I wanna learn as much as I can.
  • 00:03:14.180 --> 00:03:15.120
  • And the little--all the cedars
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:17.110
  • that were there, there's
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:18.110
  • a writeup and they say that
  • 00:03:18.110 --> 00:03:19.200
  • the cedar wood
  • 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:21.100
  • is practically incorruptible.
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:23.250
  • No insect can successfully
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.110
  • destroy it.
  • 00:03:25.110 --> 00:03:26.130
  • In fact, the beautiful perfume
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:28.180
  • smell of the cedar drives away
  • 00:03:28.180 --> 00:03:30.230
  • all these parasites.
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:32.240
  • That's why they have cedar
  • 00:03:32.240 --> 00:03:34.050
  • blocks that you can put among
  • 00:03:34.050 --> 00:03:35.230
  • your clothes, amen?
  • 00:03:35.230 --> 00:03:37.230
  • "Those who are planted
  • 00:03:37.230 --> 00:03:39.210
  • in the house of the Lord
  • 00:03:39.210 --> 00:03:41.020
  • shall flourish
  • 00:03:41.020 --> 00:03:42.110
  • in the courts of our God."
  • 00:03:42.110 --> 00:03:43.230
  • Don't just come to church,
  • 00:03:43.230 --> 00:03:45.170
  • be planted.
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:47.110
  • Don't just come to church.
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:49.090
  • Those who are planted in
  • 00:03:49.090 --> 00:03:50.170
  • the house of the Lord shall
  • 00:03:50.170 --> 00:03:51.220
  • flourish, you know where?
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:53.040
  • Outside in your workplace,
  • 00:03:53.040 --> 00:03:55.040
  • outside in your family, amen?
  • 00:03:55.040 --> 00:03:57.130
  • Those who are planted here
  • 00:03:57.130 --> 00:03:59.010
  • will flourish in the courts.
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.210
  • The courts is outside, okay?
  • 00:04:00.210 --> 00:04:01.250
  • Next verse.
  • 00:04:01.250 --> 00:04:02.180
  • "They shall still bear fruit in
  • 00:04:02.180 --> 00:04:04.060
  • old age."
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:05.090
  • Old age, the age is old but the
  • 00:04:05.090 --> 00:04:08.090
  • person is not because the person
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:09.280
  • is still bearing fruit!
  • 00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:11.250
  • Grandpa, grandma,
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:13.170
  • this is for you!
  • 00:04:13.170 --> 00:04:15.130
  • Your age can be an old age.
  • 00:04:16.080 --> 00:04:19.080
  • You tell people your age
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:20.230
  • and they say, "What?"
  • 00:04:20.230 --> 00:04:21.280
  • All right, but you are
  • 00:04:21.280 --> 00:04:23.050
  • still bearing fruit!
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:26.280
  • They say that when you come to
  • 00:04:26.280 --> 00:04:28.180
  • a certain age, they use
  • 00:04:28.180 --> 00:04:30.190
  • the word "dried up" already.
  • 00:04:31.210 --> 00:04:34.210
  • Abraham considered not his own
  • 00:04:35.120 --> 00:04:38.120
  • body now dead, dried up, neither
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:41.000
  • he had the deadness of Sarah's
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:42.210
  • womb, but was strong in faith
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:44.080
  • giving glory to God.
  • 00:04:44.080 --> 00:04:46.010
  • We don't consider the natural
  • 00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:47.250
  • things, consider God's Word.
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:51.140
  • So, so far has Pastor Prince
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:53.290
  • taken pains to show you
  • 00:04:53.290 --> 00:04:55.230
  • Scripture?
  • 00:04:55.230 --> 00:04:57.010
  • Have I?
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:58.250
  • Yup.
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:04:59.190
  • Okay, they shall still bear
  • 00:04:59.190 --> 00:05:01.030
  • fruit in old age; They shall be
  • 00:05:01.030 --> 00:05:02.170
  • fresh and flourishing."
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:04.140
  • Wow, fresh and flourishing.
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:06.000
  • I wish I can show you
  • 00:05:06.000 --> 00:05:07.010
  • the Hebrew.
  • 00:05:07.010 --> 00:05:08.050
  • Fresh there is the word dashen,
  • 00:05:08.050 --> 00:05:10.260
  • which is the word for store,
  • 00:05:10.260 --> 00:05:12.220
  • what?
  • 00:05:12.220 --> 00:05:13.120
  • Vigorous.
  • 00:05:13.120 --> 00:05:15.040
  • This man in his old age is
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:18.000
  • vigorous.
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.130
  • You know what's vigorous or not?
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:23.070
  • You know the Bible it says
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:29.090
  • in Isaiah 40, it says that
  • 00:05:29.090 --> 00:05:32.030
  • even the youths shall faint.
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:34.130
  • Even the youths shall faint and
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:37.080
  • the young men shall utterly
  • 00:05:37.080 --> 00:05:38.170
  • fall, but they that wait upon
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:40.210
  • the Lord shall renew
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:41.230
  • their strength.
  • 00:05:41.230 --> 00:05:43.100
  • They shall mount up with wings
  • 00:05:43.100 --> 00:05:44.280
  • as eagles.
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:46.130
  • They shall run and not be weary.
  • 00:05:46.130 --> 00:05:49.010
  • They shall walk and not faint.
  • 00:05:52.210 --> 00:05:55.210
  • What's the secret?
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:57.010
  • They that wait upon the Lord.
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:58.080
  • Write this down somewhere.
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:05:59.070
  • The Lord for--listen, the word
  • 00:05:59.070 --> 00:06:01.050

  • is the word join together,
  • 00:06:02.170 --> 00:06:05.090
  • fellowship.
  • 00:06:06.280 --> 00:06:09.280
  • Kavah, the word is kavah in
  • 00:06:09.280 --> 00:06:11.250
  • Hebrew.
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:12.280
  • Kavah means like a rope

  • intertwined becomes strong.
  • 00:06:15.030 --> 00:06:17.260
  • You and the Lord intertwine and
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:19.210
  • you will run and not be weary.
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:21.090
  • You will mount up with wings as
  • 00:06:21.090 --> 00:06:22.040
  • eagles.
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:23.000
  • God will renew your youth
  • 00:06:23.000 --> 00:06:23.280
  • like Caleb.
  • 00:06:23.280 --> 00:06:24.290
  • At the age of 85, he told
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:26.140
  • Joshua, "Give me this mountain."
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:30.020
  • Like Moses at the age of 120
  • 00:06:30.020 --> 00:06:31.290
  • when he died, the Bible says his
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:33.210
  • eyesight was not dim, neither
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:35.080
  • his natural force abated.
  • 00:06:35.080 --> 00:06:36.290
  • God did it for them
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:38.280
  • and Moses was under law.
  • 00:06:38.280 --> 00:06:40.050
  • Caleb was under law.
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:41.170
  • How much more we have a better
  • 00:06:41.170 --> 00:06:42.260
  • covenant?
  • 00:06:42.260 --> 00:06:43.230
  • Their law was based--their
  • 00:06:43.230 --> 00:06:45.030
  • covenant was based on
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:47.000
  • the blood of bulls and goats.
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:48.250
  • Our covenant's based on
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:50.110
  • the imperishable, beautiful,
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:52.200
  • precious blood of our Lord
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:53.290
  • Jesus Christ, amen?
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:56.290
  • Are you listening, people?
  • 00:06:56.290 --> 00:06:59.160
  • "So, what's the key,
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:01.120
  • Pastor Prince?
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:02.030
  • What's the key?"
  • 00:07:02.030 --> 00:07:03.010
  • They shall be fresh is vigorous.
  • 00:07:03.010 --> 00:07:05.140
  • Flourishing is raanan in Hebrew
  • 00:07:05.140 --> 00:07:08.050
  • which means green.
  • 00:07:08.050 --> 00:07:10.090
  • Literally today when they say
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:12.140
  • green they use this word raanan.
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:14.030
  • You will be vigorous
  • 00:07:14.030 --> 00:07:15.210
  • and evergreen.
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:18.100
  • How you like that?
  • 00:07:18.100 --> 00:07:19.180
  • When you look at the tree, the
  • 00:07:19.180 --> 00:07:20.220
  • tree is hundred over years old,
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:22.050
  • but it's all green!
  • 00:07:22.050 --> 00:07:24.060
  • And the rest, 30, 40,
  • 00:07:24.060 --> 00:07:26.160
  • already brown.
  • 00:07:29.110 --> 00:07:32.110
  • Evergreen.
  • 00:07:32.110 --> 00:07:35.000
  • You can be evergreen.
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:38.150
  • Why does God want this?
  • 00:07:38.150 --> 00:07:40.020
  • Why does God want this
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:40.240
  • in his people, all right?
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:42.090
  • It's not just for you, you know,
  • 00:07:42.090 --> 00:07:43.180
  • to declare, to testify that
  • 00:07:43.180 --> 00:07:45.130
  • the Lord is upright,
  • 00:07:45.130 --> 00:07:47.240
  • he is my rock and there's
  • 00:07:47.240 --> 00:07:48.220
  • no unrighteousness in him.
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:49.250
  • So, people around will see
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:51.170
  • God is being declared.
  • 00:07:51.170 --> 00:07:53.070
  • God is a good God.
  • 00:07:53.070 --> 00:07:54.230
  • He's an upright God.
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:55.250
  • When he sees--when they look at
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:07:57.070
  • God's people and they see this,
  • 00:07:57.070 --> 00:07:58.110
  • whoa, amen.
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:00.120
  • But it doesn't tell you how,
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:02.200
  • right?
  • 00:08:02.200 --> 00:08:03.230
  • Go back again to the first part.
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:05.230
  • "He shall grow like a cedar
  • 00:08:05.230 --> 00:08:07.150
  • in Lebanon."
  • 00:08:07.150 --> 00:08:08.290
  • So, a key there is cedar
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:10.000
  • in Lebanon, okay?
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:11.140
  • So, these people, in their old
  • 00:08:11.140 --> 00:08:13.140
  • age, they still bear fruit.
  • 00:08:13.140 --> 00:08:14.290
  • They are still green.
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:16.060
  • They are still vigorous.
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:17.130
  • Doesn't tell you what they did,
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:18.220
  • right?
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:20.260
  • Yeah, for that you must come
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:21.240
  • back next week.
  • 00:08:21.240 --> 00:08:24.160
  • Would you like to know now?
  • 00:08:24.160 --> 00:08:26.230
  • But it's not time.
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:28.190
  • Huh, you want it now?
  • 00:08:28.190 --> 00:08:30.220
  • Only one verse, okay?
  • 00:08:30.220 --> 00:08:32.170
  • Look at this.
  • 00:08:32.170 --> 00:08:33.130
  • Say, "Cedar in Lebanon."
  • 00:08:33.130 --> 00:08:35.190
  • When God gave me this,
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:37.220
  • I know this passage
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:38.140
  • for a long time already.
  • 00:08:38.140 --> 00:08:39.180
  • When God gave me this in
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:40.280
  • my room, I nearly went to
  • 00:08:40.280 --> 00:08:42.140
  • the rooftop 'cause for years
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:44.140
  • I salivated over this--did a
  • 00:08:45.050 --> 00:08:48.050
  • breath stroke in my saliva.
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:51.080
  • It was like--it was like man,
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:53.190
  • bring fruit in old age,
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:55.240
  • evergreen, vigorous, bearing
  • 00:08:57.130 --> 00:09:00.150
  • fruit, flourishing out there in
  • 00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:02.030
  • the courts.
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:02.270
  • Man, like the cedar of Lebanon,
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:05.040
  • like a palm tree, I salivate.
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:08.060
  • Doesn't tell you how.
  • 00:09:08.060 --> 00:09:10.080
  • And then bang, in one
  • 00:09:10.080 --> 00:09:12.250
  • of my studies, God says,
  • 00:09:12.250 --> 00:09:14.290
  • "See the key?"
  • 00:09:14.290 --> 00:09:16.130
  • He will grow like,
  • 00:09:16.130 --> 00:09:17.080
  • not just a palm tree,
  • 00:09:17.080 --> 00:09:18.080
  • but a cedar in Lebanon.
  • 00:09:18.080 --> 00:09:19.150
  • Bible interpret Bible.
  • 00:09:19.150 --> 00:09:22.110
  • Let me show you this verse
  • 00:09:22.110 --> 00:09:23.100
  • in Psalms 104, "The trees of
  • 00:09:23.100 --> 00:09:25.120
  • the Lord are full of sap."
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:29.060
  • When you are--just now that
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:31.000
  • passage also full of sap, right?
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:33.180
  • Evergreen, full of sap.
  • 00:09:33.180 --> 00:09:36.040
  • Bring forth fruit in old age,
  • 00:09:36.040 --> 00:09:37.100
  • full of sap.
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:40.290
  • The cedars of Lebanon
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:42.090
  • which he planted.
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:43.160
  • Uh-huh.
  • 00:09:43.160 --> 00:09:44.200
  • That's our key, right?
  • 00:09:44.200 --> 00:09:47.020
  • If you think he's referring just
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:48.120
  • to trees, think again.
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:50.230
  • Like God says, "Thou shall
  • 00:09:50.230 --> 00:09:52.050
  • not muzzle the ox that
  • 00:09:52.050 --> 00:09:53.240
  • treads out the corn."
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:54.260
  • And then he says, do you think
  • 00:09:54.260 --> 00:09:55.190
  • God cares for oxen?
  • 00:09:55.190 --> 00:09:57.170
  • Of course, God cares for animals
  • 00:09:57.170 --> 00:09:59.030
  • but do you think when God says
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:00.020
  • don't muzzle the ox when
  • 00:10:00.020 --> 00:10:01.080
  • it treads out the wheat--
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:02.230
  • let him eat.
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:03.290
  • Don't cover his mouth.
  • 00:10:03.290 --> 00:10:05.080
  • Don't be like a Singaporean,
  • 00:10:05.080 --> 00:10:06.150
  • you know?
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:07.280
  • Yeah, you know what I'm
  • 00:10:07.280 --> 00:10:10.160
  • talking about, all right?
  • 00:10:10.160 --> 00:10:13.020
  • And so God says, "Let him eat.
  • 00:10:14.140 --> 00:10:17.140
  • Let him eat."
  • 00:10:17.140 --> 00:10:18.290
  • And then he says, "Do you think
  • 00:10:18.290 --> 00:10:19.220
  • God cares for the oxen?"
  • 00:10:19.220 --> 00:10:20.270
  • No.
  • 00:10:20.270 --> 00:10:22.070
  • Paul says God is caring for
  • 00:10:22.070 --> 00:10:24.140
  • the minister who thresh out
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:25.290
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:10:25.290 --> 00:10:27.070
  • Let him be blessed.
  • 00:10:27.070 --> 00:10:30.030
  • Let him be blessed.
  • 00:10:30.030 --> 00:10:31.190
  • It is his job.
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:32.260
  • Let him get paid.
  • 00:10:32.260 --> 00:10:34.160
  • It's his job, all right?
  • 00:10:34.160 --> 00:10:36.040
  • Paul talked about that
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:36.290
  • in Corinthians.
  • 00:10:36.290 --> 00:10:37.220
  • You can read about it.
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:38.130
  • That's not my message today,
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:39.120
  • okay?
  • 00:10:39.120 --> 00:10:39.250
  • What I'm trying to say?
  • 00:10:39.250 --> 00:10:40.190
  • When God gives illustration
  • 00:10:40.190 --> 00:10:41.190
  • about not muzzling the ox,
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:43.160
  • God is thinking of full-time
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:45.010
  • ministers, ministers that depend
  • 00:10:45.010 --> 00:10:47.130
  • on the people's freewill giving,
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:50.070
  • all right?
  • 00:10:50.070 --> 00:10:51.140
  • God says, "Don't forget.
  • 00:10:51.140 --> 00:10:52.120
  • Allow him to eat."
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:54.010
  • Watch this.
  • 00:10:54.010 --> 00:10:55.190
  • When God talk about the trees of
  • 00:10:55.190 --> 00:10:58.040
  • the Lord are full of sap, the
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:10:59.130
  • cedars of Lebanon, he's talking
  • 00:10:59.130 --> 00:11:00.270
  • about cedars of Lebanon,
  • 00:11:00.270 --> 00:11:02.030
  • it's people.
  • 00:11:02.030 --> 00:11:02.230
  • They shall still bring forth
  • 00:11:02.230 --> 00:11:03.120
  • fruit, it's people, right?
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:05.090
  • It's illustration.
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:06.150
  • How you can be incorruptible,
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:07.220
  • how you can be full of sap, how
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:08.270
  • you can be green, how you can be
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:10.150
  • strong.
  • 00:11:10.150 --> 00:11:12.110
  • Would you like that?
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:13.230
  • Context.
  • 00:11:13.230 --> 00:11:16.120
  • Bible interpret Bible and
  • 00:11:16.120 --> 00:11:17.220
  • context is important.
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:19.100
  • Look at the verse before this.
  • 00:11:19.100 --> 00:11:20.080
  • "God gives wine that makes glad
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:22.210
  • the heart of man.
  • 00:11:22.210 --> 00:11:24.040
  • God gives oil, the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:11:24.040 --> 00:11:25.260
  • to make his face shine.
  • 00:11:25.260 --> 00:11:27.050
  • And God gives bread which
  • 00:11:27.050 --> 00:11:28.250
  • strengthen man's heart."
  • 00:11:28.250 --> 00:11:31.180
  • And I'm telling you, the only
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:32.250
  • bread that can strengthen man's
  • 00:11:32.250 --> 00:11:34.070
  • physical heart is the bread of
  • 00:11:34.070 --> 00:11:36.140
  • Communion because by his
  • 00:11:36.140 --> 00:11:38.080
  • stripes, we are healed.
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:40.100
  • I'm here to tell you, church,
  • 00:11:40.100 --> 00:11:41.210
  • the wine, the bread,
  • 00:11:41.210 --> 00:11:43.260
  • is the Communion that makes you
  • 00:11:43.260 --> 00:11:45.280
  • like the cedars of Lebanon,
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:47.210
  • full of sap.
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:50.040
  • And when I saw this, I tell you,
  • 00:11:50.280 --> 00:11:53.280
  • I said, whoa!
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:58.090
  • It was like wow.
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:12:01.020
  • Do you know why I'm preaching
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:03.020
  • this?
  • 00:12:03.020 --> 00:12:04.010
  • I'm preaching this so that when

  • your loved one or someone has
  • 00:12:05.140 --> 00:12:06.240
  • been given a bad diagnosis,
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:08.240
  • don't just run and take
  • 00:12:08.240 --> 00:12:10.100
  • Communion with an empty heart,
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:12.130
  • an empty revelation, empty mind.
  • 00:12:12.130 --> 00:12:14.290
  • Wait, listen to the sermon.
  • 00:12:14.290 --> 00:12:16.170
  • At the end, partake.
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:19.160
  • Something, something will happen
  • 00:12:19.160 --> 00:12:22.030
  • because everything about
  • 00:12:22.030 --> 00:12:22.290
  • God's things, all right,
  • 00:12:22.290 --> 00:12:24.030
  • must work with faith.
  • 00:12:24.030 --> 00:12:25.220
  • Faith comes by hearing, hearing,
  • 00:12:25.220 --> 00:12:27.020
  • hearing by the Word of Christ.
  • 00:12:27.020 --> 00:12:28.260
  • Are you listening, people, amen?
  • 00:12:28.260 --> 00:12:31.210
  • You know, everything happened
  • 00:12:31.210 --> 00:12:33.050
  • because of man's sin.
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:34.280
  • I'm bringing this to a close.
  • 00:12:34.280 --> 00:12:36.080
  • Everything happened because
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:37.020
  • of man's sin.
  • 00:12:37.020 --> 00:12:38.100
  • Man ate from the tree
  • 00:12:38.100 --> 00:12:39.150
  • he shouldn't.
  • 00:12:39.150 --> 00:12:40.150
  • Guess what.
  • 00:12:40.150 --> 00:12:41.130
  • God says, "Eat your way back
  • 00:12:41.130 --> 00:12:42.200
  • into the blessings.
  • 00:12:42.200 --> 00:12:44.010
  • Eat your way back
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:44.230
  • into the blessings."
  • 00:12:44.230 --> 00:12:45.250
  • Are you listening?
  • 00:12:45.250 --> 00:12:47.160
  • But it's the body of Jesus.
  • 00:12:47.160 --> 00:12:49.010
  • It must be the body of Jesus.
  • 00:12:49.010 --> 00:12:50.270
  • The disciples in Luke 24,
  • 00:12:52.080 --> 00:12:55.080
  • I told you, right?
  • 00:12:55.080 --> 00:12:56.080
  • Did I give you Luke 24?
  • 00:12:56.080 --> 00:12:57.270
  • I didn't?
  • 00:12:57.270 --> 00:12:58.200
  • I didn't give you Luke 24?
  • 00:12:58.200 --> 00:13:01.010
  • Real fast, okay, Luke 24 when
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:02.100
  • Jesus rose from the dead,
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:03.180
  • same day real fast, okay?
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:04.250
  • I cannot afford to give you this
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:06.050
  • and then you give it another
  • 00:13:06.050 --> 00:13:07.050
  • service, all right,
  • 00:13:07.050 --> 00:13:08.210
  • y'all will come back.
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:09.160
  • Luke 24, real quick, "Now it
  • 00:13:09.160 --> 00:13:11.100
  • came to pass, Jesus sat
  • 00:13:11.100 --> 00:13:12.120
  • at the table with them,
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:13.130
  • He took bread."
  • 00:13:13.130 --> 00:13:14.050
  • Now, this is after the rose from
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:14.270
  • the dead.
  • 00:13:14.270 --> 00:13:15.190
  • The same evening, the same
  • 00:13:15.190 --> 00:13:17.060
  • evening after he rose from the
  • 00:13:17.060 --> 00:13:19.070
  • dead, he's at the place called
  • 00:13:19.070 --> 00:13:20.230
  • Emmaus with the two disciples,
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:22.070
  • I believe husband and wife,
  • 00:13:22.070 --> 00:13:23.020
  • all right?
  • 00:13:23.020 --> 00:13:23.250
  • And he took the place of
  • 00:13:23.250 --> 00:13:25.010
  • the divine hosts.
  • 00:13:25.010 --> 00:13:26.060
  • He played host.
  • 00:13:26.060 --> 00:13:27.120
  • He took the bread.
  • 00:13:27.120 --> 00:13:28.070
  • He blessed, broke it,
  • 00:13:28.070 --> 00:13:30.010
  • gave it to them.
  • 00:13:30.010 --> 00:13:30.200
  • Their eyes were opened and
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:32.100
  • they knew him, and he vanished
  • 00:13:32.100 --> 00:13:34.050
  • from their sight.
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:36.160
  • When did they--their eyes open?
  • 00:13:36.160 --> 00:13:38.290
  • When did they know him?
  • 00:13:39.140 --> 00:13:42.140
  • When he broke the bread.
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:47.040
  • The whole seven miles
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:48.130
  • they didn't see him
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:49.200
  • until he broke bread.
  • 00:13:49.200 --> 00:13:50.200
  • There's something here, people.
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:51.180
  • There's something here.
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:52.050
  • I believe--I have a whole
  • 00:13:52.050 --> 00:13:53.040
  • message on Emmaus Road.
  • 00:13:53.040 --> 00:13:54.100
  • I have a whole message on it
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:55.070
  • where God showed me it is
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:56.240
  • actually a replica, or rather, a
  • 00:13:56.240 --> 00:13:58.150
  • picture of what happened in
  • 00:13:58.150 --> 00:14:00.200
  • the Garden of Eden
  • 00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:01.220
  • when man fell, man ate.
  • 00:14:01.220 --> 00:14:03.050
  • It's a picture.
  • 00:14:03.050 --> 00:14:03.260
  • There are two man and woman.
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:05.020
  • There's a couple there.
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:06.160
  • So here, there's a couple
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:07.140
  • walking back to Emmaus,
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:09.140
  • Cleophas and Mrs. Cleophas.
  • 00:14:09.140 --> 00:14:11.040
  • And then you have
  • 00:14:11.040 --> 00:14:12.270
  • the Lord walking with them
  • 00:14:12.270 --> 00:14:15.070
  • in the cool of the day.
  • 00:14:15.070 --> 00:14:16.090
  • Then you have the Lord Jesus
  • 00:14:16.090 --> 00:14:17.030
  • coming here.
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:17.280
  • It's a restoration,
  • 00:14:17.280 --> 00:14:18.200
  • understand or not?
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:19.100
  • What was lost here
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:20.040
  • was restored here.
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:21.030
  • And then the Bible says--now,
  • 00:14:21.030 --> 00:14:22.120
  • because of time, their eyes
  • 00:14:22.120 --> 00:14:24.280
  • were closed to see Jesus.
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:26.200
  • They didn't know it was Jesus.
  • 00:14:26.200 --> 00:14:27.140
  • Their eyes were restrained.
  • 00:14:27.140 --> 00:14:29.030
  • He wanted them to see him in
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:29.240
  • the Word, not physically.
  • 00:14:29.240 --> 00:14:32.050
  • But then right at the end over
  • 00:14:32.050 --> 00:14:33.290
  • here, what happened?
  • 00:14:33.290 --> 00:14:35.260
  • The devil seduced the woman
  • 00:14:35.290 --> 00:14:38.290
  • who seduced the husband
  • 00:14:38.290 --> 00:14:40.170
  • to eat the fruit, right?
  • 00:14:40.170 --> 00:14:43.120
  • And their eyes were opened, but
  • 00:14:43.120 --> 00:14:44.280
  • to the wrong place, not to God,
  • 00:14:45.010 --> 00:14:48.010
  • to themself.
  • 00:14:48.010 --> 00:14:49.040
  • How sinful, how dirty, how
  • 00:14:49.040 --> 00:14:50.200
  • un--how naked you are.
  • 00:14:50.200 --> 00:14:53.020
  • But over here the restoration,
  • 00:14:53.020 --> 00:14:54.290
  • their eyes were opened.
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:57.010
  • They didn't see themself.
  • 00:14:57.010 --> 00:14:58.060
  • They saw him.
  • 00:14:58.060 --> 00:14:59.200
  • So, can I submit to you looking
  • 00:14:59.200 --> 00:15:01.000
  • at the types, the two stories,
  • 00:15:01.000 --> 00:15:04.000
  • can I submit to you Adam and Eve
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:06.250
  • partook from the tree of
  • 00:15:06.250 --> 00:15:07.240
  • knowledge of good and evil,
  • 00:15:07.240 --> 00:15:09.000
  • right?
  • 00:15:09.000 --> 00:15:09.200
  • What they didn't partake
  • 00:15:09.200 --> 00:15:10.180
  • is the tree of life.
  • 00:15:10.180 --> 00:15:12.150
  • Can I submit to you
  • 00:15:12.150 --> 00:15:14.000
  • Communion is the tree of life?
  • 00:15:14.010 --> 00:15:17.010
  • He is your righteousness.
  • 00:15:17.010 --> 00:15:19.030
  • He is your righteousness.
  • 00:15:19.030 --> 00:15:20.130
  • He is your holiness.
  • 00:15:20.130 --> 00:15:23.020
  • Are you blessed?
  • 00:15:23.020 --> 00:15:24.270
  • Are you blessed?
  • 00:15:24.270 --> 00:15:25.260
  • You know, this is the
  • 00:15:25.260 --> 00:15:27.160
  • restoration part.
  • 00:15:27.160 --> 00:15:28.220
  • And then you know what happened?
  • 00:15:28.220 --> 00:15:29.230
  • He disappeared.
  • 00:15:29.230 --> 00:15:30.120
  • By the way, he disappeared
  • 00:15:30.120 --> 00:15:31.030
  • doesn't mean he left them.
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:32.000
  • He vanished out of their sight.
  • 00:15:32.000 --> 00:15:33.080
  • He was still there.
  • 00:15:33.080 --> 00:15:34.030
  • He'll never leave them.
  • 00:15:34.030 --> 00:15:36.000
  • They walked back seven miles.
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:37.230
  • They just walked seven miles
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:39.080
  • but after Communion,
  • 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:40.110
  • they can walk seven miles again.
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:42.170
  • They went back to find
  • 00:15:42.170 --> 00:15:43.090
  • the other disciples and say,
  • 00:15:43.090 --> 00:15:44.060
  • "Hey, hey, we saw the Lord!
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:45.230
  • We saw the Lord!"
  • 00:15:45.230 --> 00:15:46.210
  • Let's follow the story there.
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:47.180
  • "And they told about the things
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:48.220
  • that had happened on the road,
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:49.270
  • and how he was known to them,
  • 00:15:49.270 --> 00:15:51.140
  • how he was known to them
  • 00:15:51.140 --> 00:15:52.270
  • in the breaking of bread."
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.160
  • He told the rest.
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:55.180
  • Now, watch this.
  • 00:15:55.180 --> 00:15:56.180
  • "Now, as they said these things
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:16:00.040
  • about the breaking of bread,
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:00.290
  • Jesus himself stood in the midst
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:02.230
  • of them and said to them,
  • 00:16:02.230 --> 00:16:03.240
  • 'Shalom,'" when they were
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:07.040
  • talking about
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:08.090
  • the breaking of bread.
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:08.290
  • The Lord loves it, that's why
  • 00:16:08.290 --> 00:16:11.260
  • he's showing up even now, amen.
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:15.160
  • As they spoke about the breaking
  • 00:16:15.160 --> 00:16:17.200
  • of bread, Jesus appeared.
  • 00:16:17.200 --> 00:16:19.160
  • Do you think he just came
  • 00:16:19.160 --> 00:16:20.170
  • from heaven at that time?
  • 00:16:20.170 --> 00:16:22.040
  • No, he was there all the time.
  • 00:16:22.040 --> 00:16:24.020
  • He never left them.
  • 00:16:24.020 --> 00:16:26.160
  • In other words, from bread
  • 00:16:26.160 --> 00:16:28.220
  • to bread, he disappeared,
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:31.040
  • he reappeared.
  • 00:16:31.040 --> 00:16:32.140
  • Take this to proclaim the Lord's
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:34.080
  • death till he comes.
  • 00:16:35.000 --> 00:16:38.000
  • Primarily till he comes means
  • 00:16:38.000 --> 00:16:39.080
  • when he come in the clouds
  • 00:16:39.080 --> 00:16:40.230
  • to get all of us in the Rapture.
  • 00:16:40.230 --> 00:16:42.110
  • But till he comes, keep on
  • 00:16:42.110 --> 00:16:43.090
  • taking till he comes can also
  • 00:16:43.090 --> 00:16:44.210
  • mean till he come to manifest
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:45.290
  • himself to you.
  • 00:16:47.090 --> 00:16:50.090
  • I don't know about you,
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:53.000
  • I'm blessed.
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:53.170
  • I think you are really ready
  • 00:16:53.170 --> 00:16:54.270
  • right now to take the Communion.
  • 00:16:54.270 --> 00:16:56.260
  • Are you ready?
  • 00:16:56.260 --> 00:16:57.260
  • All right, pass the Communion
  • 00:16:57.260 --> 00:16:58.220
  • elements.
  • 00:16:58.220 --> 00:17:00.060
  • Y'all have it, right,
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:01.060
  • in your hands?
  • 00:17:01.060 --> 00:17:02.240
  • Are you ready, people?
  • 00:17:03.190 --> 00:17:06.190
  • Now remember, it's not about
  • 00:17:06.190 --> 00:17:07.260
  • being conscious of your own
  • 00:17:07.260 --> 00:17:08.290
  • disease.
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:10.030
  • It's being conscious of Jesus,
  • 00:17:10.030 --> 00:17:12.050
  • amen, being conscious of him.
  • 00:17:12.050 --> 00:17:14.170
  • I'm gonna say this again,
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:16.040
  • surely--oh, you don't have to
  • 00:17:16.040 --> 00:17:18.290
  • say--all right, don't--when you
