  • - Psalms 116:12.
  • 00:00:16.250 --> 00:00:19.190
  • I feel like preaching now.
  • 00:00:19.190 --> 00:00:21.070
  • Psalms 116.
  • 00:00:21.070 --> 00:00:22.130
  • "What will I render, verse 12,
  • 00:00:22.130 --> 00:00:24.270
  • to the Lord for His benefits
  • 00:00:24.270 --> 00:00:26.070
  • toward me?"
  • 00:00:26.070 --> 00:00:27.060
  • Listen to these words:
  • 00:00:27.060 --> 00:00:28.030
  • "I will take up the cup
  • 00:00:28.030 --> 00:00:30.050
  • of salvation and call upon
  • 00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:33.060
  • the name of the Lord."
  • 00:00:33.060 --> 00:00:36.010
  • He said I'm going to take
  • 00:00:36.010 --> 00:00:37.150
  • up the cup of salvation.
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:40.200
  • The analogy in the scripture --
  • 00:00:40.200 --> 00:00:42.080
  • there are two.
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:43.130
  • There's a cup in the Old
  • 00:00:43.130 --> 00:00:44.180
  • Testament, and there is a well
  • 00:00:45.130 --> 00:00:48.130
  • in the New Testament in John 4.
  • 00:00:48.160 --> 00:00:51.160
  • It talks about the woman
  • 00:00:51.160 --> 00:00:52.240
  • at the well.
  • 00:00:52.240 --> 00:00:53.290
  • And Jesus said, if you will
  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:56.010
  • drink the water that I offer
  • 00:00:56.010 --> 00:00:57.150
  • you, you will have a well
  • 00:00:57.150 --> 00:01:00.090
  • of living water that will never
  • 00:01:00.090 --> 00:01:02.290
  • run dry, and you'll never
  • 00:01:02.290 --> 00:01:04.100
  • thirst again.
  • 00:01:04.100 --> 00:01:06.140
  • So I want you to see
  • 00:01:06.140 --> 00:01:07.200
  • that you have,
  • 00:01:07.200 --> 00:01:09.210
  • in the old covenant,
  • 00:01:09.210 --> 00:01:11.210
  • a cup of salvation,
  • 00:01:11.210 --> 00:01:13.060
  • but in the new covenant,
  • 00:01:13.060 --> 00:01:15.070
  • we have a well of salvation.
  • 00:01:15.070 --> 00:01:17.280
  • But you have to decide.
  • 00:01:17.280 --> 00:01:19.150
  • Do you want to drink out
  • 00:01:19.150 --> 00:01:20.110
  • of a cup, or do you want
  • 00:01:20.110 --> 00:01:21.150
  • to have a well?
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:24.040
  • You see, there's a difference
  • 00:01:24.040 --> 00:01:25.190
  • between Old Testament
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:26.230
  • salvation and New
  • 00:01:26.230 --> 00:01:28.080
  • Testament salvation.
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:30.160
  • In the Old Testament,
  • 00:01:30.160 --> 00:01:32.100
  • the blessings of God,
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:34.030
  • the salvation that He offered,
  • 00:01:34.030 --> 00:01:35.280
  • was referred
  • 00:01:35.280 --> 00:01:36.190
  • to as the cup of salvation.
  • 00:01:36.190 --> 00:01:39.060
  • God served His salvation
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:42.050
  • by the cup.
  • 00:01:42.050 --> 00:01:43.230
  • That's why David said
  • 00:01:43.230 --> 00:01:45.010
  • in Psalms 23,
  • 00:01:45.010 --> 00:01:46.070
  • my cup runneth over.
  • 00:01:46.070 --> 00:01:48.240
  • That's why Psalms 116
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:50.140
  • said I will drink of the cup
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:52.150
  • of salvation.
  • 00:01:52.150 --> 00:01:54.020
  • There was just enough salvation
  • 00:01:54.020 --> 00:01:56.000
  • through the blood
  • 00:01:56.000 --> 00:01:56.210
  • of an innocent animal.
  • 00:01:56.210 --> 00:01:57.280
  • One day a year, the high priest
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.180
  • would roll the,
  • 00:01:59.180 --> 00:02:01.040
  • and they wouldn't wipe
  • 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:01.270
  • the sins away.
  • 00:02:01.270 --> 00:02:02.240
  • Just roll them over
  • 00:02:02.240 --> 00:02:03.280
  • to the next year.
  • 00:02:03.280 --> 00:02:05.220
  • And you could drink that cup.
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:07.040
  • It was just enough to cover
  • 00:02:07.040 --> 00:02:08.130
  • you from judgement.
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:11.180
  • Salvation by the cupful
  • 00:02:11.180 --> 00:02:13.230
  • is the Old Testament language.
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:16.010
  • But in the New Testament,
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:17.050
  • He promised a well
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:19.130
  • of living water.
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:21.230
  • Don't go around all
  • 00:02:21.230 --> 00:02:22.170
  • the time with a cup,
  • 00:02:22.170 --> 00:02:24.250
  • hunting for a spigot.
  • 00:02:25.030 --> 00:02:28.030
  • You can have a well.
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:31.090
  • I love the story of the woman
  • 00:02:31.090 --> 00:02:32.220
  • at the well because the Bible
  • 00:02:32.220 --> 00:02:33.290
  • said when she found Jesus,
  • 00:02:33.290 --> 00:02:35.190
  • and Jesus said follow me,
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:38.280
  • she left her water pots,
  • 00:02:38.280 --> 00:02:41.230
  • the Bible said.
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:42.260
  • She traded her cup and her water
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.160
  • pots in, and left with a well.
  • 00:02:45.040 --> 00:02:48.040
  • Did you know that you can leave
  • 00:02:48.040 --> 00:02:49.160
  • your cup and your water pot
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:51.010
  • here, and you can leave
  • 00:02:51.010 --> 00:02:52.100
  • with a well this morning?
  • 00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:54.140
  • Because Jesus said that's
  • 00:02:54.140 --> 00:02:55.170
  • what I came to offer you.
  • 00:02:55.170 --> 00:02:58.060
  • The Old Testament cup
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:59.110
  • of salvation
  • 00:02:59.110 --> 00:03:00.100
  • was one of drudgery.
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:02.230
  • It speaks of drawing,
  • 00:03:02.230 --> 00:03:04.160
  • and working, and laboring.
  • 00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:06.170
  • Trying to somehow
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:07.280
  • get just enough to quench
  • 00:03:08.090 --> 00:03:11.090
  • the tremendous thirst.
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:13.100
  • And it was never enough.
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:15.200
  • The Bible talked about
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:16.280
  • that they had to draw.
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:18.150
  • The woman at the well said,
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:19.200
  • I can't give you, when
  • 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:20.280
  • Jesus asked for water, she
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:22.040
  • said how can I draw water?
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:23.150
  • I don't have anything to
  • 00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:24.130
  • draw with.
  • 00:03:24.130 --> 00:03:26.090
  • The only kind of salvation
  • 00:03:26.090 --> 00:03:27.190
  • you could have is what you
  • 00:03:27.190 --> 00:03:28.220
  • had to, with drudgery
  • 00:03:28.220 --> 00:03:30.160
  • and work, conjure up.
  • 00:03:30.170 --> 00:03:33.170
  • The little cupful.
  • 00:03:33.170 --> 00:03:35.190
  • Jesus said, I am offering
  • 00:03:35.290 --> 00:03:38.290
  • you a well of living water.
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:42.120
  • Now listen to me carefully.
  • 00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:43.240
  • The cupful in the New Testament,
  • 00:03:45.230 --> 00:03:48.230
  • the cup in the Old Testament
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:51.090
  • was the cup of salvation,
  • 00:03:51.090 --> 00:03:53.000
  • and the well is in
  • 00:03:53.000 --> 00:03:53.290
  • the New Testament.
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:55.130
  • But now I want you to see,
  • 00:03:55.130 --> 00:03:57.050
  • according to the Bible,
  • 00:03:57.050 --> 00:03:58.130
  • the New Testament trials
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:00.150
  • are referred to by the cup.
  • 00:04:00.150 --> 00:04:03.140
  • See, Jesus so changed things
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:05.270
  • on the cross that now all we
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:08.020
  • get in this life is a cup
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:10.020
  • of trials.
  • 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:10.290
  • That's why He said if it be
  • 00:04:10.290 --> 00:04:12.250
  • possible, in the Garden
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:13.220
  • of Gethsemane, let this cup
  • 00:04:13.220 --> 00:04:15.200
  • of trials pass from me.
  • 00:04:16.200 --> 00:04:19.200
  • So I want you to see it.
  • 00:04:19.200 --> 00:04:21.040
  • The New Testament trials
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:22.150
  • are referred to by the cupful.
  • 00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:26.190
  • Let this cup pass from me.
  • 00:04:27.280 --> 00:04:30.280
  • It's the trials of life,
  • 00:04:33.110 --> 00:04:36.110
  • but there's nothing more
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:38.050
  • than a cupful of them.
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:41.050
  • But when He offers us blessings,
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:43.080
  • He offers us a well full
  • 00:04:43.080 --> 00:04:44.210
  • of blessings.
  • 00:04:44.210 --> 00:04:46.180
  • So life will give you a cupful
  • 00:04:46.180 --> 00:04:48.100
  • of trials, but Jesus says
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:51.150
  • I offer you a well full
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:53.060
  • of blessing.
  • 00:04:53.120 --> 00:04:56.120
  • Now are you able to drink
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:57.110
  • from this cup?
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:58.170
  • This cup of trials?
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:01.190
  • Because there's more
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:02.190
  • than a cupful of blessing.
  • 00:05:02.190 --> 00:05:04.240
  • That if you will bear,
  • 00:05:04.240 --> 00:05:07.070
  • and not fall, and not fail,
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:09.080
  • and not quit, and deal with your
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:11.210
  • cup of trials, and sometimes
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:13.030
  • we need to get rid
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.080
  • of our cup mentality of,
  • 00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:17.260
  • you know, we kind of reverse
  • 00:05:17.260 --> 00:05:18.230
  • that around, and we think we
  • 00:05:18.230 --> 00:05:20.040
  • have a well of trials
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:21.270
  • and tribulations
  • 00:05:21.270 --> 00:05:22.250
  • and just a cup of blessing.
  • 00:05:22.250 --> 00:05:24.160
  • But Jesus reversed that
  • 00:05:24.160 --> 00:05:25.260
  • thing, and He says you have
  • 00:05:25.260 --> 00:05:27.030
  • a cup of trials compared to
  • 00:05:27.030 --> 00:05:28.250
  • the well of blessings I've
  • 00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:30.100
  • given you.
  • 00:05:30.100 --> 00:05:31.170
  • Even this morning, no matter
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:32.230
  • what you're going through,
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:33.210
  • here, in Gwinnett,
  • 00:05:33.210 --> 00:05:34.160
  • anybody watching me,
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:36.000
  • I'm telling you that if you look
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:37.130
  • at your life, you may have a cup
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:39.180
  • full of trials, but you have
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:41.060
  • a well full of blessings.
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:44.260
  • And you ought to be thankful.
  • 00:05:45.280 --> 00:05:48.280
  • The enemy wants us to think
  • 00:05:48.280 --> 00:05:50.080
  • that we get troubles by
  • 00:05:50.080 --> 00:05:51.070
  • the well full and blessings
  • 00:05:51.070 --> 00:05:53.040
  • by the cupful, but that concept
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:55.150
  • is not our
  • 00:05:55.150 --> 00:05:56.100
  • New Testament experience.
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:58.140
  • Our New Testament experience
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:06:00.160
  • is we get trials by the cupful,
  • 00:06:00.220 --> 00:06:03.220
  • and these light afflictions,
  • 00:06:03.220 --> 00:06:05.200
  • Paul said it's just
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:06.220
  • a little cupful,
  • 00:06:06.220 --> 00:06:07.290
  • are not worthy to be compared
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:09.210
  • with the well of blessings
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:11.170
  • that God has stored up for
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:13.140
  • those who love and honor Him.
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:17.020
  • I don't know what you're
  • 00:06:17.020 --> 00:06:17.240
  • going through, but the good
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:18.290
  • news is that if your cup
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:21.220
  • is full of trials and troubles,
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:23.210
  • your well is full of blessings.
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:25.180
  • And God is not going to leave
  • 00:06:25.180 --> 00:06:26.190
  • you with a cup.
  • 00:06:26.190 --> 00:06:28.020
  • He's going, your story's going
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:29.150
  • to end with a well of blessing.
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:32.220
  • The Bible talks about in Genesis
  • 00:06:32.220 --> 00:06:34.240
  • how that Abraham dug wells.
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:37.050
  • And then the next generation
  • 00:06:37.050 --> 00:06:38.090
  • Isaac, came and tried to
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:41.030
  • to drink from those wells.
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:42.160
  • But the Philistines,
  • 00:06:42.160 --> 00:06:43.260
  • the Bible said, plugged
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:45.020
  • up those wells with filth.
  • 00:06:45.240 --> 00:06:48.240
  • And I'm telling you today
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:50.020
  • that we need to remember that
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:52.020
  • there's a well that we have.
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:54.200
  • But if we're not careful,
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:55.190
  • the world will plug
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:56.160
  • that well up.
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:58.220
  • The cares of life,
  • 00:06:58.220 --> 00:07:00.050
  • the carnality, and sin,
  • 00:07:00.050 --> 00:07:02.170
  • and the filth that we see,
  • 00:07:02.170 --> 00:07:04.250
  • and the filth that we hear,
  • 00:07:04.250 --> 00:07:06.090
  • and the world that we live in,
  • 00:07:06.090 --> 00:07:07.290
  • and the negative stuff
  • 00:07:07.290 --> 00:07:09.030
  • that we see and feed on,
  • 00:07:09.030 --> 00:07:11.050
  • it clogs up
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:12.190
  • the well of salvation.
  • 00:07:12.190 --> 00:07:14.250
  • And you have to do what
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:15.210
  • Isaac did.
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:16.150
  • Isaac, the Bible said,
  • 00:07:16.150 --> 00:07:17.210
  • cleaned out the well.
  • 00:07:17.210 --> 00:07:19.170
  • What we have to do is get
  • 00:07:19.170 --> 00:07:21.070
  • the junk out of the well.
  • 00:07:21.070 --> 00:07:23.290
  • I tell you, if you let it,
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:25.260
  • the world and all that's going
  • 00:07:25.260 --> 00:07:27.060
  • on will just oppress you,
  • 00:07:27.060 --> 00:07:29.070
  • and it will keep the well
  • 00:07:29.070 --> 00:07:30.150
  • of living water and joy,
  • 00:07:30.150 --> 00:07:32.150
  • and you'll go around just
  • 00:07:32.150 --> 00:07:33.190
  • focusing on your cup of trials
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:36.010
  • and forget you've got a well
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:37.160
  • of blessing and goodness
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:39.120
  • that's following you all
  • 00:07:39.120 --> 00:07:40.140
  • the days of your life.
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:42.220
  • And this is the worst world
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:44.040
  • we'll ever know.
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:45.020
  • All the trials
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:46.060
  • are in this world.
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:47.070
  • There's a cup of trials,
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:49.020
  • but when we get to Heaven,
  • 00:07:49.020 --> 00:07:50.130
  • there'll be a well of blessing.
  • 00:07:50.130 --> 00:07:52.040
  • Streets of gold.
  • 00:07:52.040 --> 00:07:53.240
  • Gates of pearl.
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:54.220
  • And not just in Heaven,
  • 00:07:54.220 --> 00:07:56.030
  • but there's blessing
  • 00:07:56.030 --> 00:07:57.000
  • here on earth.
  • 00:07:57.000 --> 00:07:58.000
  • If you believe it,
  • 00:07:58.000 --> 00:07:58.270
  • give God a shout of praise.
  • 00:07:58.270 --> 00:08:01.240
  • Clean out the well.
  • 00:08:01.240 --> 00:08:04.060
  • Clean it out.
  • 00:08:04.060 --> 00:08:06.270
  • I thank God for the well
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:08.070
  • that my mom and my dad dug.
  • 00:08:08.210 --> 00:08:11.210
  • I watched them dig that well
  • 00:08:11.210 --> 00:08:13.080
  • spiritually, and as a child,
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:15.100
  • I would drink from that well.
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:17.070
  • I can remember, just as a child,
  • 00:08:17.070 --> 00:08:19.250
  • just feeling the presence
  • 00:08:19.250 --> 00:08:21.080
  • of God, and experiencing
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:22.260
  • the presence of God.
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:24.060
  • Sometimes, I'm sure there's
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:25.080
  • always somebody, like probably
  • 00:08:25.080 --> 00:08:27.090
  • in Isaac's day, who said
  • 00:08:27.090 --> 00:08:28.130
  • why are we re-digging
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:29.230
  • your father's well?
  • 00:08:29.230 --> 00:08:31.080
  • Why don't we just dig
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:32.070
  • a new well?
  • 00:08:32.070 --> 00:08:33.060
  • And I'm sure he had to tell
  • 00:08:33.060 --> 00:08:34.090
  • them, you don't understand.
  • 00:08:34.090 --> 00:08:35.180
  • You ought to taste that water.
  • 00:08:35.180 --> 00:08:38.000
  • If you taste that old stuff
  • 00:08:38.000 --> 00:08:40.020
  • that old water in there
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:41.230
  • is so good, no new well
  • 00:08:41.230 --> 00:08:44.040
  • can compare.
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:45.140
  • And I just want to say
  • 00:08:45.140 --> 00:08:46.170
  • that we need to go back
  • 00:08:46.170 --> 00:08:47.130
  • and re-dig some of the wells
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:49.120
  • that our fathers dug,
  • 00:08:49.120 --> 00:08:50.280
  • and taste that water again,
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:52.250
  • and clean out our wells.
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:54.180
  • The problem is, our wells
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.110
  • are so full of worldliness,
  • 00:08:56.110 --> 00:08:58.200
  • and the lust of the eyes,
  • 00:08:58.200 --> 00:09:00.090
  • the lust of the flesh,
  • 00:09:00.090 --> 00:09:01.210
  • the pride of life,
  • 00:09:01.210 --> 00:09:02.250
  • that we are so consumed
  • 00:09:02.250 --> 00:09:05.040
  • with this present world,
  • 00:09:05.040 --> 00:09:06.210
  • we don't enjoy the living well
  • 00:09:06.210 --> 00:09:09.020
  • of water inside of us.
  • 00:09:09.190 --> 00:09:12.190
  • I remember the night I received
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:13.280
  • the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:13.280 --> 00:09:16.250
  • It was something else.
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:18.200
  • I was in a little
  • 00:09:18.200 --> 00:09:19.200
  • Pentecostal church.
  • 00:09:19.200 --> 00:09:21.220
  • My mom and some of them were
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:23.090
  • praying for me.
  • 00:09:23.090 --> 00:09:24.060
  • My daddy was praying
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:25.080
  • for me to receive.
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:26.110
  • I had those women in my ears.
  • 00:09:26.110 --> 00:09:28.140
  • One of them screaming,
  • 00:09:28.140 --> 00:09:29.120
  • hold on, hold on.
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:31.000
  • One of them screaming
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:31.290
  • let go, let go.
  • 00:09:31.290 --> 00:09:33.140
  • They were, my mom used to --
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:35.180
  • they didn't believe in cutting
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:36.200
  • their hair much, and she would
  • 00:09:36.200 --> 00:09:37.180
  • put her hair way up,
  • 00:09:37.180 --> 00:09:38.240
  • up, up, up, up, up.
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:40.240
  • Higher than the Tower of Babel.
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:42.100
  • And she would get
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:44.190
  • to shouting sometimes.
  • 00:09:44.190 --> 00:09:45.240
  • You need to shout like that.
  • 00:09:45.240 --> 00:09:47.000
  • She would shout, and shout
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:48.090
  • her hair down.
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:49.040
  • It would be a horsewhip.
  • 00:09:49.040 --> 00:09:50.050
  • [whip sound]
  • 00:09:50.050 --> 00:09:51.060
  • Just, the women's hair,
  • 00:09:51.060 --> 00:09:52.140
  • and they would dance and,
  • 00:09:52.140 --> 00:09:53.110
  • let go.
  • 00:09:53.110 --> 00:09:54.180
  • Hold on.
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:55.070
  • I didn't know, what in the world
  • 00:09:55.070 --> 00:09:56.030
  • is going on here?
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:09:57.170
  • But I got a taste of that well.
  • 00:09:58.240 --> 00:10:01.240
  • You can make fun of me.
  • 00:10:01.240 --> 00:10:02.250
  • You can laugh at me.
  • 00:10:02.250 --> 00:10:03.280
  • You can say I'm crazy.
  • 00:10:03.280 --> 00:10:05.060
  • But I'm going to tell
  • 00:10:05.060 --> 00:10:05.260
  • you something.
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:06.200
  • This well will give life
  • 00:10:06.200 --> 00:10:07.240
  • to your marriage.
  • 00:10:07.240 --> 00:10:08.250
  • It'll give life
  • 00:10:08.250 --> 00:10:09.180
  • to your children.
  • 00:10:09.180 --> 00:10:10.260
  • It'll keep your family
  • 00:10:10.260 --> 00:10:12.080
  • in the 21st Century.
  • 00:10:12.080 --> 00:10:13.160
  • It'll bless your home.
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:15.070
  • It'll bless your life.
  • 00:10:15.070 --> 00:10:16.160
  • There's nothing the world
  • 00:10:16.160 --> 00:10:17.250
  • can offer you that can compare
  • 00:10:17.250 --> 00:10:20.190
  • to living water.
  • 00:10:20.190 --> 00:10:21.260
  • Woo!
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:22.220
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:24.000
  • Now I'm trying to calm down,
  • 00:10:24.000 --> 00:10:25.050
  • but I feel like shouting
  • 00:10:25.050 --> 00:10:27.030
  • right now.
  • 00:10:27.030 --> 00:10:28.010
  • I just have a cup of trials,
  • 00:10:28.010 --> 00:10:30.210
  • but I've got a well of blessings
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:33.080
  • in my life.
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:34.030
  • Take a praise break,
  • 00:10:34.030 --> 00:10:35.090
  • and I'm going to keep preaching.
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:38.070
  • Woo.
  • 00:10:38.070 --> 00:10:40.170
  • Clean the well up.
  • 00:10:40.270 --> 00:10:43.270
  • There's a lot of carnality.
  • 00:10:43.270 --> 00:10:46.120
  • There's a lot of frustrations,
  • 00:10:46.120 --> 00:10:49.090
  • and burdens, and family problems
  • 00:10:49.090 --> 00:10:51.200
  • that can clog the well up.
  • 00:10:51.230 --> 00:10:54.230
  • Clean it out.
  • 00:10:54.230 --> 00:10:56.200
  • Get back to God this morning.
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:58.270
  • It's up to you.
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:10:59.250
  • You can leave here
  • 00:10:59.250 --> 00:11:00.220
  • with a cupful of blessing.
  • 00:11:00.220 --> 00:11:02.170
  • Another sip that will last
  • 00:11:02.170 --> 00:11:03.270
  • you another week.
  • 00:11:03.270 --> 00:11:04.290
  • Or you can leave your cup here
  • 00:11:04.290 --> 00:11:06.200
  • and walk out with a well.
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:10.250
  • The woman at the well,
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:12.040
  • He said if any man thirst.
  • 00:11:12.040 --> 00:11:14.290
  • She had a thirst.
  • 00:11:14.290 --> 00:11:16.140
  • Jesus began His ministry
  • 00:11:16.140 --> 00:11:18.030
  • with hunger for 40 days.
  • 00:11:18.030 --> 00:11:20.110
  • He ended His ministry
  • 00:11:20.110 --> 00:11:21.180
  • with thirst on the cross
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:23.030
  • when He said, I thirst.
  • 00:11:23.030 --> 00:11:25.270
  • He went the whole spectrum
  • 00:11:25.270 --> 00:11:27.280
  • for you and I.
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:28.280
  • He hungered, and He thirsted
  • 00:11:28.280 --> 00:11:30.140
  • so that He could say
  • 00:11:30.140 --> 00:11:31.210
  • with conviction,
  • 00:11:31.210 --> 00:11:32.260
  • blessed are they that hunger
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:34.150
  • and thirst,
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:36.210
  • for they shall be filled.
  • 00:11:36.210 --> 00:11:38.070
  • Do you hunger for God?
  • 00:11:38.070 --> 00:11:40.060
  • God-hungry men.
  • 00:11:40.060 --> 00:11:41.240
  • God-hungry women.
  • 00:11:41.240 --> 00:11:43.040
  • God-hungry men find God.
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:47.110
  • God-hungry women find God.
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:49.190
  • Blessed are the hungry
  • 00:11:49.190 --> 00:11:51.070
  • and the thirsty,
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:52.170
  • for they shall be filled.
  • 00:11:53.180 --> 00:11:56.180
  • You have to hunger for more.
  • 00:11:56.180 --> 00:11:59.010
  • Paul said in Ephesians 5,
  • 00:11:59.010 --> 00:12:01.020
  • do not be drunk with wine,
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:03.070
  • wherein is excess.
  • 00:12:03.070 --> 00:12:05.090
  • Maybe that's the problem.
  • 00:12:05.090 --> 00:12:07.200
  • Maybe we're so full
  • 00:12:07.200 --> 00:12:08.280
  • of the intoxicating things
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:10.210
  • of the world that there's no
  • 00:12:10.210 --> 00:12:13.110
  • living water
  • 00:12:13.110 --> 00:12:15.160
  • in the well anymore.
  • 00:12:15.160 --> 00:12:16.270
  • So clogged up,
  • 00:12:16.270 --> 00:12:17.290
  • and we need to be cleaned out.
  • 00:12:17.290 --> 00:12:19.150
  • And He said don't be drunk
  • 00:12:19.150 --> 00:12:21.010
  • on wine, wherein is excess,
  • 00:12:21.010 --> 00:12:22.220
  • but be filled with
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:24.020
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:12:24.020 --> 00:12:26.080
  • Speaking to yourself in hymns,
  • 00:12:26.080 --> 00:12:28.160
  • and songs, and spiritual songs.
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:30.100
  • Singing.
  • 00:12:30.100 --> 00:12:31.030
  • Making melody in your heart
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:32.260
  • and to the Lord.
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:33.190
  • In other words, you're in love
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:34.170
  • with Jesus again.
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:37.140
  • The Bible said that the living
  • 00:12:37.140 --> 00:12:38.200
  • water would spring up in us.
  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:41.030
  • God's language is up.
  • 00:12:41.030 --> 00:12:43.230
  • God's language is up.
  • 00:12:43.230 --> 00:12:46.150
  • God's language is always up.
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:48.050
  • That's why the Bible said stir
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:49.250
  • up the gift, and stand up,
  • 00:12:49.250 --> 00:12:52.030
  • and we'll be called up,
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:53.190
  • and look up, your redemption
  • 00:12:53.190 --> 00:12:55.010
  • draws nigh.
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:55.290
  • Because God's language
  • 00:12:55.290 --> 00:12:57.050
  • is always up.
  • 00:12:57.210 --> 00:13:00.230
  • Jesus was preparing
  • 00:13:00.230 --> 00:13:02.220
  • for the Last Supper,
  • 00:13:02.220 --> 00:13:03.250
  • and He told His disciples,
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:04.260
  • go to the city,
  • 00:13:04.260 --> 00:13:06.000
  • and you'll see a man there
  • 00:13:06.000 --> 00:13:07.130
  • who has a pitcher on his head.
  • 00:13:07.130 --> 00:13:09.250
  • An empty pitcher.
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:10.250
  • He'll be carrying
  • 00:13:10.250 --> 00:13:11.140
  • it on his head.
  • 00:13:11.140 --> 00:13:13.060
  • Follow him, and he'll take
  • 00:13:13.060 --> 00:13:14.110
  • you to an upper room.
  • 00:13:14.110 --> 00:13:15.190
  • And you rent it and buy it,
  • 00:13:15.190 --> 00:13:17.090
  • and I'll meet you there,
  • 00:13:17.090 --> 00:13:18.050
  • and we'll have the Last Supper.
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:20.160
  • And so they go, and they watch,
  • 00:13:20.160 --> 00:13:22.030
  • and they look for a man
  • 00:13:22.030 --> 00:13:23.030
  • with a glass pitcher on his
  • 00:13:23.030 --> 00:13:24.230
  • head because that's how
  • 00:13:24.230 --> 00:13:25.210
  • they do it over there.
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:29.170
  • What are you following him for?
  • 00:13:29.170 --> 00:13:30.220
  • Because he knows where
  • 00:13:30.220 --> 00:13:31.150
  • the water is.
  • 00:13:31.220 --> 00:13:34.220
  • Well, you and I are supposed
  • 00:13:34.220 --> 00:13:35.290
  • to be pitcher bearers.
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:39.090
  • God has called us to be the ones
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:42.040
  • that a thirsty world looks at.
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:44.040
  • And if they want to know
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:45.210
  • where the water is, they see us,
  • 00:13:45.210 --> 00:13:48.210
  • and they know that if I follow
  • 00:13:48.210 --> 00:13:49.250
  • them, the thirst that I can't
  • 00:13:49.250 --> 00:13:51.260
  • get quenched anywhere else,
  • 00:13:51.260 --> 00:13:53.130
  • I can get it quenched
  • 00:13:53.130 --> 00:13:55.170
  • if I follow them.
  • 00:13:55.170 --> 00:13:56.270
  • They know where the water is.
  • 00:13:56.270 --> 00:13:59.250
  • John 8.
  • 00:13:59.250 --> 00:14:02.040
  • The Feast of Tabernacles
  • 00:14:02.040 --> 00:14:03.120
  • goes for seven days.
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:05.170
  • They would read from Isaiah:
  • 00:14:05.170 --> 00:14:07.090
  • He that is thirsty,
  • 00:14:07.090 --> 00:14:08.100
  • let him come and drink freely.
  • 00:14:08.160 --> 00:14:11.160
  • And right in the middle
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:12.070
  • of that reading
  • 00:14:12.070 --> 00:14:13.070
  • of that scripture,
  • 00:14:13.070 --> 00:14:14.190
  • a tall Galilean by the name
  • 00:14:14.190 --> 00:14:16.050
  • of Jesus steps up,
  • 00:14:16.050 --> 00:14:17.230
  • and He says these words
  • 00:14:17.230 --> 00:14:19.080
  • with a thundering voice:
  • 00:14:19.080 --> 00:14:21.110
  • If any man thirst,
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:24.000
  • let him come unto me.
  • 00:14:24.000 --> 00:14:26.130
  • And out of his belly will flow
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:27.270
  • rivers of living water.
  • 00:14:27.270 --> 00:14:30.160
  • And this spake He of the spirit
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:33.100
  • which they had not
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:34.030
  • yet been given.
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:36.270
  • The Old Testament experience
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:38.280
  • was a cupful, and it always
  • 00:14:38.280 --> 00:14:41.110
  • left them thirsty.
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:44.130
  • One priest, with one cup a year,
  • 00:14:44.200 --> 00:14:47.200
  • would reach into
  • 00:14:47.200 --> 00:14:48.190
  • the Pool of Siloam, and he would
  • 00:14:48.190 --> 00:14:50.050
  • pour it out, signifying
  • 00:14:50.050 --> 00:14:51.160
  • the Feast of Tabernacles
  • 00:14:51.160 --> 00:14:53.030
  • was over.
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:53.290
  • And that was it.
  • 00:14:53.290 --> 00:14:56.140
  • If any man, now it was only
  • 00:14:56.140 --> 00:14:59.090
  • a priest that could
  • 00:14:59.090 --> 00:15:00.100
  • do that ceremony.
  • 00:15:00.100 --> 00:15:02.260
  • But Jesus says
  • 00:15:02.260 --> 00:15:03.200
  • if any man thirst.
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:07.130
  • And then He says these words.
  • 00:15:07.130 --> 00:15:08.290
  • He says, out of your belly
  • 00:15:08.290 --> 00:15:10.220
  • will flow rivers.
  • 00:15:10.220 --> 00:15:12.000
  • It's plural.
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:13.120
  • Not a cup.
  • 00:15:13.120 --> 00:15:14.210
  • Not one river.
  • 00:15:14.210 --> 00:15:16.160
  • But rivers.
  • 00:15:16.160 --> 00:15:17.100
  • And this spake He of the spirit
  • 00:15:17.100 --> 00:15:20.040
  • that you and I can have
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:21.180
  • rivers of living water.
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:24.040
  • Not just one river,
  • 00:15:24.040 --> 00:15:25.090
  • but multiple rivers,
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:26.130
  • flowing in every area
  • 00:15:26.130 --> 00:15:27.220
  • of our life.
  • 00:15:27.220 --> 00:15:29.060
  • Flowing into every aspect
  • 00:15:29.060 --> 00:15:31.020
  • of our life.
  • 00:15:31.020 --> 00:15:33.020
  • This well is the Holy Ghost
  • 00:15:33.020 --> 00:15:35.020
  • flowing out of us.
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:37.130
  • A little boy 10 years old
  • 00:15:37.130 --> 00:15:39.040
  • received the baptism
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:40.020
  • in the Holy Spirit
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:41.000
  • in children's church.
  • 00:15:41.000 --> 00:15:43.000
  • And his mother asked him,
  • 00:15:43.000 --> 00:15:44.080
  • what was that like?
  • 00:15:44.080 --> 00:15:45.140
  • And he said these words:
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:47.130
  • I got a tiger in my tank.
  • 00:15:48.120 --> 00:15:51.120
  • And I like that because
  • 00:15:51.120 --> 00:15:52.080
  • that's really
  • 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:53.160
  • the only description.
  • 00:15:53.160 --> 00:15:54.180
  • There's a difference between
  • 00:15:54.180 --> 00:15:55.170
  • walking down, and shaking
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:56.280
  • the preacher's hand,
  • 00:15:56.280 --> 00:15:58.020
  • and signing a confession card,
  • 00:15:58.020 --> 00:15:59.230
  • and getting a tiger
  • 00:15:59.230 --> 00:16:00.270
  • in your tank.
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:02.240
  • And what this generation
  • 00:16:02.240 --> 00:16:03.290
  • needs is more than a handshake
  • 00:16:03.290 --> 00:16:05.240
  • and a card filled out.
  • 00:16:05.240 --> 00:16:07.030
  • We need to get a tiger
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:08.110
  • in our tank called
  • 00:16:08.110 --> 00:16:09.190
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:16:09.190 --> 00:16:11.080
  • Come on, somebody.
  • 00:16:11.080 --> 00:16:12.270
  • Out of your belly will flow
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:14.240
  • rivers of living water.
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:17.230
  • I'll pour water upon him
  • 00:16:17.230 --> 00:16:19.180
  • that is thirsty, Jesus said.
  • 00:16:20.060 --> 00:16:23.060
  • David said all of my springs
  • 00:16:23.060 --> 00:16:25.170
  • are in you.
  • 00:16:25.170 --> 00:16:26.210
  • That's what you call
  • 00:16:26.210 --> 00:16:27.110
  • an innerspring.
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:30.060
  • That's why we bounce so much.
  • 00:16:30.180 --> 00:16:33.180
  • The only experience that ever
  • 00:16:34.250 --> 00:16:37.250
  • brought dissatisfaction
  • 00:16:37.250 --> 00:16:40.090
  • in Heaven is recorded in
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:43.120
  • the Book of Peter when it says,
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:46.120
  • "With the Holy Ghost He
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:48.000
  • has sent down from Heaven,
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:50.120
  • which things the angels
  • 00:16:50.120 --> 00:16:53.060
  • desired to look into."
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:57.240
  • In other words, there's been
  • 00:16:57.240 --> 00:16:59.240
  • only one time when
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:01.290
  • the inhabitants of Heaven became
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:05.090
  • dissatisfied with the glory
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:08.110
  • that is in Heaven.
  • 00:17:08.110 --> 00:17:10.180
  • And they saw something
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:12.000
  • on earth that made them
  • 00:17:12.000 --> 00:17:14.130
  • dissatisfied with what they
  • 00:17:14.130 --> 00:17:16.060
  • had, and they said we desire
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.160
  • to look into that.
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:18.210
  • And guess what it was?
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:19.190
  • It tells you what it was.
  • 00:17:19.190 --> 00:17:21.020
  • When the Holy Spirit was poured
  • 00:17:21.020 --> 00:17:22.210
  • out upon the church,
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:25.210
  • the angels said we're
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:27.100
  • dissatisfied with this.
  • 00:17:27.100 --> 00:17:28.200
  • We want some of that.
  • 00:17:30.060 --> 00:17:33.060
  • And we go around with a cup,
  • 00:17:33.060 --> 00:17:35.160
  • barely making it, barely
  • 00:17:35.160 --> 00:17:38.150
  • even thinking of God, when
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:41.040
  • we're supposed to be a well
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:43.270
  • of living water,
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:45.220
  • full of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:17:45.220 --> 00:17:48.000
  • With joy, the scripture said
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:49.230
  • in Isaiah, we draw from
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:51.170
  • the wells of salvation.
  • 00:17:51.170 --> 00:17:53.190
  • The cup experience is over.
  • 00:17:53.190 --> 00:17:55.210
  • The well is flowing.
  • 00:17:55.210 --> 00:17:58.170
  • Do you understand that?
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:17:59.230
  • Don't lose your excitement.
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.100
  • Clean out the well.
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:04.230
  • Clean out the junk.
  • 00:18:04.230 --> 00:18:07.220
  • The thing about this well
  • 00:18:07.220 --> 00:18:09.220
  • is He said he that drinks
  • 00:18:09.220 --> 00:18:11.000
  • of this water will never
  • 00:18:11.000 --> 00:18:12.120
  • thirst again.
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:15.040
  • Here's the difference.
  • 00:18:15.040 --> 00:18:17.210
  • One sin always calls
  • 00:18:17.210 --> 00:18:19.170
  • for another sin.
  • 00:18:19.170 --> 00:18:21.230
  • Sin is always thirsty.
  • 00:18:23.020 --> 00:18:26.020
  • One drink calls
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:27.070
  • for another drink.
  • 00:18:27.070 --> 00:18:28.090
  • One drug calls
  • 00:18:28.090 --> 00:18:29.060
  • for another drug.
  • 00:18:29.060 --> 00:18:30.160
  • One affair calls
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:31.110
  • for another affair.
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:32.170
  • One lust calls
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:34.000
  • for another lust.
  • 00:18:34.000 --> 00:18:35.000
  • It's always unsatisfied.
  • 00:18:35.000 --> 00:18:37.150
  • But he that drinks of this
  • 00:18:37.150 --> 00:18:39.160
  • water will never thirst.
  • 00:18:42.260 --> 00:18:45.260
  • I don't know what you came
  • 00:18:45.260 --> 00:18:47.170
  • to get out of this service.
  • 00:18:47.170 --> 00:18:49.160
  • I would say a lot of people
  • 00:18:49.160 --> 00:18:50.260
  • just came to get a little cup.
  • 00:18:50.260 --> 00:18:52.130
  • Here's my cup, Lord.
  • 00:18:53.080 --> 00:18:56.080
  • But why settle for a cup
  • 00:18:56.080 --> 00:18:57.290
  • when you can have a well?
  • 00:18:58.250 --> 00:19:01.270
  • Why don't you exchange and throw
  • 00:19:01.270 --> 00:19:03.130
  • your cup down like the woman
  • 00:19:03.130 --> 00:19:04.180
  • at the well?
  • 00:19:04.180 --> 00:19:05.130
  • She left her pots at the well,
  • 00:19:05.130 --> 00:19:07.270
  • at that natural well,
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:09.270
  • she threw her pots down
  • 00:19:09.270 --> 00:19:11.000
  • and took the well home
  • 00:19:11.000 --> 00:19:12.070
  • with her: Jesus.
  • 00:19:13.190 --> 00:19:16.190
  • And I'm saying to you
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:17.130
  • that if you're thirsty,
  • 00:19:17.130 --> 00:19:19.040
  • there is a river
  • 00:19:19.040 --> 00:19:21.080
  • that is available to you today.
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:23.200
  • There is a source of joy
  • 00:19:23.200 --> 00:19:25.150
  • that the world cannot
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:26.110
  • offer you.
  • 00:19:26.110 --> 00:19:27.160
  • There is something that only
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:30.010
  • Heaven can satisfy in you,
  • 00:19:30.010 --> 00:19:31.270
  • and it's the river
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:33.000
  • of living water.
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:34.120
  • Lift your hands up high,
  • 00:19:34.120 --> 00:19:36.090
  • open your mouth wide,
  • 00:19:36.090 --> 00:19:38.040
  • and go to praising God
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:39.110
  • for about ten seconds.
  • 00:19:39.110 --> 00:19:41.130
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:43.230
  • Oh, Jesus.
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:46.270
  • There's somebody
  • 00:19:46.270 --> 00:19:47.210
  • here so thirsty.
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:49.170
  • There's somebody here
  • 00:19:49.170 --> 00:19:50.180
  • who just needs the river
  • 00:19:50.180 --> 00:19:53.030
  • of living water.
  • 00:19:53.030 --> 00:19:54.050
  • Rivers.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:56.250
  • God has so much more.
  • 00:19:56.250 --> 00:19:58.020
  • He's missed you.
  • 00:19:58.020 --> 00:19:58.290
  • He told me to tell you,
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:00.050
  • come home.
  • 00:20:00.050 --> 00:20:01.260
  • Come home.
  • 00:20:01.260 --> 00:20:04.010
  • If you're weary, come home.
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:06.240
  • You've trodden the path
  • 00:20:06.240 --> 00:20:08.090
  • of sin too long, come home.
  • 00:20:08.090 --> 00:20:10.290
  • Maybe you've just been busy
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:12.090
  • with the cares.
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:13.030
  • Maybe the well, you know
  • 00:20:13.030 --> 00:20:15.070
  • it's there, but it's been
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:16.140
  • clogged up with the things
  • 00:20:16.140 --> 00:20:18.100
  • of this life.
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:19.240
  • Come home.
  • 00:20:19.270 --> 00:20:22.270
  • I wonder, I want to give
  • 00:20:22.270 --> 00:20:23.230
  • a little different altar call
  • 00:20:23.230 --> 00:20:24.240
  • this morning.
  • 00:20:24.240 --> 00:20:26.250
  • But I wonder how many of you
  • 00:20:26.250 --> 00:20:27.210
  • would say Pastor Franklin,
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:29.070
  • I would love for the river,
  • 00:20:30.110 --> 00:20:33.110
  • I would love to exchange
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:34.100
  • my cup for a river this morning?
  • 00:20:34.100 --> 00:20:36.280
  • I'd love to leave my cup
  • 00:20:36.280 --> 00:20:38.040
  • here and take a well home.
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:41.030
  • I'd love for the dry spell
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:43.210
  • to be over, and I'd love to
  • 00:20:43.210 --> 00:20:45.070
  • get a fresh taste of Heaven.
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:48.020
  • Of living water this morning.
  • 00:20:48.020 --> 00:20:50.090
  • You don't have to do it.
  • 00:20:50.090 --> 00:20:51.240
  • It doesn't mean you're not
  • 00:20:51.240 --> 00:20:52.170
  • spiritual if you don't do it.
  • 00:20:52.170 --> 00:20:55.150
  • But if there's a hunger
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:56.190
  • and a thirst for more,
  • 00:20:57.020 --> 00:21:00.040
  • get out of the seat and come
  • 00:21:00.040 --> 00:21:01.030
  • stand as close as you can get
  • 00:21:01.030 --> 00:21:02.160
  • to this platform this morning.
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:05.240
  • Come quickly.
  • 00:21:05.240 --> 00:21:06.200
  • Come quickly.
  • 00:21:06.200 --> 00:21:08.080
  • Why don't you come trade
  • 00:21:08.080 --> 00:21:09.080
  • your cup of trials in for your
  • 00:21:09.080 --> 00:21:11.100
  • well of blessing this morning?
  • 00:21:11.100 --> 00:21:13.070
  • Come on.
  • 00:21:13.070 --> 00:21:13.270
  • Hurry.
  • 00:21:13.270 --> 00:21:14.140
  • There's more.
  • 00:21:14.140 --> 00:21:15.030
  • There's more.
  • 00:21:15.030 --> 00:21:15.230
  • There's more.
  • 00:21:15.230 --> 00:21:16.120
  • Get in here.
  • 00:21:16.120 --> 00:21:16.290
  • Get in here.
  • 00:21:16.290 --> 00:21:17.210
  • God's going to bless you
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:18.130
  • when you move on a word.
  • 00:21:19.050 --> 00:21:22.050
  • Let's lift our hands
  • 00:21:22.050 --> 00:21:22.260
  • toward Heaven.
  • 00:21:22.260 --> 00:21:24.170
  • And if you know you're
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:25.140
  • far from God, come home.
  • 00:21:27.050 --> 00:21:30.050
  • He's calling you home.
  • 00:21:30.050 --> 00:21:32.270
  • Pastor, pray for me.
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:34.020
  • You're preaching and talking
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:35.070
  • to me right now.
  • 00:21:35.070 --> 00:21:36.190
  • Boldly raise your hand
  • 00:21:36.190 --> 00:21:37.200
  • right now.
  • 00:21:37.200 --> 00:21:38.200
  • Now's the moment.
  • 00:21:38.200 --> 00:21:39.160
  • If you know you're backslid,
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:41.170
  • you're not right with God,
  • 00:21:41.170 --> 00:21:43.010
  • and you want to get right
  • 00:21:43.010 --> 00:21:44.020
  • with God, raise your hand
  • 00:21:44.020 --> 00:21:45.060
  • high right now.
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:46.120
  • Raise it high and unashamed.
  • 00:21:46.120 --> 00:21:47.190
  • Beautiful, beautiful.
  • 00:21:47.190 --> 00:21:49.080
  • Hands all over this room.
  • 00:21:49.080 --> 00:21:51.090
  • All the way up in the balcony.
  • 00:21:51.090 --> 00:21:53.190
  • Raise them high.
  • 00:21:53.190 --> 00:21:54.160
  • Raise them high.
  • 00:21:54.160 --> 00:21:55.060
  • Raise them high.
  • 00:21:55.060 --> 00:21:56.210
  • Everybody who has a hand raised,
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:58.070
  • I want you to keep your hand
  • 00:21:58.070 --> 00:21:59.120
  • raised, and I want you to look
  • 00:21:59.120 --> 00:22:00.180
  • around you.
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:01.100
  • And if you see someone
  • 00:22:01.100 --> 00:22:02.050
  • with their hand raised,
  • 00:22:02.050 --> 00:22:03.280
  • reach over and put your hand
  • 00:22:03.280 --> 00:22:04.230
  • on their shoulder.
  • 00:22:04.230 --> 00:22:06.120
  • And let's pray
  • 00:22:06.120 --> 00:22:08.050
  • this prayer together.
  • 00:22:08.050 --> 00:22:09.230
  • Miracles of salvation.
  • 00:22:09.230 --> 00:22:11.220
  • Miracles of cleansing.
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:13.290
  • Miracles of forgiveness.
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:16.010
  • Brand new cleansings.
  • 00:22:16.010 --> 00:22:17.280
  • The well is being
  • 00:22:17.280 --> 00:22:19.170
  • unplugged today.
  • 00:22:19.170 --> 00:22:22.090
  • Pray this prayer.
  • 00:22:22.090 --> 00:22:23.050
  • Lord Jesus, wash me.
  • 00:22:24.090 --> 00:22:27.090
  • Cleanse me.
  • 00:22:27.090 --> 00:22:29.040
  • Forgive me.
  • 00:22:29.040 --> 00:22:30.250
  • I receive your forgiveness.

  • There is no other name whereby
  • 00:22:39.020 --> 00:22:41.050
  • I can be saved,
  • 00:22:41.050 --> 00:22:42.280
  • and I receive you.
  • 00:22:42.280 --> 00:22:45.040
  • Take me back.
  • 00:22:45.040 --> 00:22:46.140
  • Open wide your arms of love.
  • 00:22:47.150 --> 00:22:50.150
  • Lord, I'm coming home.
  • 00:22:50.240 --> 00:22:53.240
  • Now fill me with this well
  • 00:22:53.240 --> 00:22:56.150
  • of living water.
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:58.050
  • I'm trading in my cup
  • 00:22:58.050 --> 00:23:00.270
  • for a well, and I'm going
  • 00:23:00.270 --> 00:23:03.040
  • to take you home with me.
  • 00:23:03.040 --> 00:23:05.040
  • In Jesus' name.
  • 00:23:05.040 --> 00:23:07.050
  • Fill me so full that none
  • 00:23:07.090 --> 00:23:10.090
  • of the other things
  • 00:23:10.090 --> 00:23:12.090
  • will be able to destroy me.
  • 00:23:12.090 --> 00:23:14.230
  • In Jesus' name.
  • 00:23:14.230 --> 00:23:16.190
  • I want you to give the biggest

  • cheer of the morning to the king
  • 00:23:18.010 --> 00:23:21.010
  • - In our closing moments
  • 00:23:29.220 --> 00:23:30.240
  • of this program,
  • 00:23:30.240 --> 00:23:32.000
  • I wanna share with you
  • 00:23:32.000 --> 00:23:33.040
  • a humbling opportunity
  • 00:23:33.040 --> 00:23:35.170
  • that we have to bless
  • 00:23:35.170 --> 00:23:37.050
  • God's chosen people,
  • 00:23:37.050 --> 00:23:38.230
  • and God's chosen land;
  • 00:23:38.230 --> 00:23:40.140
  • the Nation of Israel.
  • 00:23:40.140 --> 00:23:42.180
  • God spoke to my heart
  • 00:23:42.180 --> 00:23:43.220
  • while I was in Israel
  • 00:23:43.220 --> 00:23:44.290
  • this last time, and He said,
  • 00:23:44.290 --> 00:23:47.180
  • "I want you to
  • 00:23:47.180 --> 00:23:50.100
  • fulfill Isaiah 61,
  • 00:23:50.100 --> 00:23:53.060
  • where the promise is:
  • 00:23:53.060 --> 00:23:54.250
  • 'For ashes,
  • 00:23:54.250 --> 00:23:57.010
  • people will receive beauty...'"
  • 00:23:57.010 --> 00:23:59.290
  • -- And, He's gonna use
  • 00:23:59.290 --> 00:24:00.200
  • you and me to do this very thing
  • 00:24:00.230 --> 00:24:03.230
  • in the nation of Israel,
  • 00:24:03.230 --> 00:24:05.040
  • together -- and that's the key;
  • 00:24:05.040 --> 00:24:07.080
  • together, we're going to help
  • 00:24:07.080 --> 00:24:09.000
  • these Jewish families
  • 00:24:09.000 --> 00:24:11.070
  • rebuild, replant, and restore
  • 00:24:11.280 --> 00:24:14.280
  • this whole community.
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:16.170
  • It's a miracle and I believe
  • 00:24:16.170 --> 00:24:18.130
  • you are supposed to be
  • 00:24:18.130 --> 00:24:19.290
  • a part of it.
  • 00:24:19.290 --> 00:24:20.220
  • You see, while I was in Israel,
  • 00:24:20.220 --> 00:24:22.210
  • this time, the Lord spoke
  • 00:24:22.210 --> 00:24:24.050
  • the Scripture from Isaiah
  • 00:24:24.050 --> 00:24:26.080
  • that said, "Comfort ye,
  • 00:24:26.080 --> 00:24:28.180
  • comfort ye My people..."
  • 00:24:28.180 --> 00:24:31.000
  • -- Maybe, you've been
  • 00:24:31.000 --> 00:24:31.160
  • through a fire,
  • 00:24:31.160 --> 00:24:32.190
  • maybe, you've been
  • 00:24:32.190 --> 00:24:33.160
  • through something that
  • 00:24:33.160 --> 00:24:34.280
  • was so destructive
  • 00:24:34.280 --> 00:24:36.060
  • that you didn't know
  • 00:24:36.060 --> 00:24:37.200
  • what you were gonna do,
  • 00:24:37.200 --> 00:24:38.130
  • but you have seen

  • God turn your ashes into beauty,
