  • - I want to talk to you
  • 00:00:16.130 --> 00:00:17.090
  • for a few moments this morning
  • 00:00:17.090 --> 00:00:18.090
  • on the high cost to low living.
  • 00:00:18.090 --> 00:00:20.250
  • The high cost to low living.
  • 00:00:21.280 --> 00:00:24.280
  • It was the king's birthday,
  • 00:00:24.280 --> 00:00:27.020
  • and he had called in
  • 00:00:27.020 --> 00:00:29.290
  • all of his commanders
  • 00:00:29.290 --> 00:00:31.050
  • of his military forces,
  • 00:00:31.050 --> 00:00:33.010
  • and all of his friends,
  • 00:00:33.010 --> 00:00:34.240
  • and he was throwing
  • 00:00:34.240 --> 00:00:36.080
  • a huge celebration.
  • 00:00:36.080 --> 00:00:37.190
  • A party.
  • 00:00:37.190 --> 00:00:38.140
  • A grand occasion.
  • 00:00:38.140 --> 00:00:40.020
  • There was lots of drinking,
  • 00:00:40.020 --> 00:00:41.210
  • lots of eating,
  • 00:00:41.210 --> 00:00:42.260
  • lots of celebration,
  • 00:00:42.260 --> 00:00:44.280
  • gift exchanging.
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:47.020
  • And the Bible said that
  • 00:00:47.020 --> 00:00:49.030
  • just before this occasion
  • 00:00:49.030 --> 00:00:51.020
  • that Herod and his wife
  • 00:00:51.040 --> 00:00:54.040
  • had gone to the banks
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:55.060
  • of the Jordan River
  • 00:00:55.060 --> 00:00:56.190
  • to hear this wild man,
  • 00:00:56.190 --> 00:00:58.060
  • John, preach.
  • 00:00:58.060 --> 00:01:00.050
  • And when he preached
  • 00:01:00.050 --> 00:01:01.260
  • with such force,
  • 00:01:01.260 --> 00:01:03.050
  • and such anointing,
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:04.180
  • and such authority,
  • 00:01:04.180 --> 00:01:05.180
  • it moved people.
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:09.000
  • But then he looked at
  • 00:01:09.000 --> 00:01:10.140
  • Herod and his wife,
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:12.240
  • and he said it's not right,
  • 00:01:12.240 --> 00:01:13.270
  • and it's not lawful for you
  • 00:01:13.270 --> 00:01:15.170
  • to be married
  • 00:01:15.170 --> 00:01:16.120
  • to your brother's wife.
  • 00:01:16.120 --> 00:01:18.050
  • You're living in adultery,
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:19.250
  • and it's not right.
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:22.090
  • And when John, in boldness,
  • 00:01:22.090 --> 00:01:24.040
  • did that,
  • 00:01:24.040 --> 00:01:25.050
  • it humiliated the king.
  • 00:01:25.080 --> 00:01:28.080
  • But the Bible really draws
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:30.200
  • the attention to his wife
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:33.140
  • that he was living in
  • 00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:36.160
  • adultery with.
  • 00:01:36.160 --> 00:01:38.080
  • She became infuriated,
  • 00:01:38.080 --> 00:01:40.150
  • and she hated John the Baptist.
  • 00:01:40.150 --> 00:01:42.210
  • Now there's a difference -
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:45.040
  • Herod was not a bad man.
  • 00:01:45.040 --> 00:01:47.060
  • Even though he had him
  • 00:01:47.060 --> 00:01:48.240
  • immediately arrested
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:49.150
  • and threw him in his prison,
  • 00:01:49.150 --> 00:01:50.280
  • he showed him special favor.
  • 00:01:50.280 --> 00:01:52.290
  • The Bible indicates that.
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:54.090
  • He took care of him.
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:55.290
  • He would even go down and sit,
  • 00:01:55.290 --> 00:01:57.140
  • and visit, and listen to him
  • 00:01:57.140 --> 00:01:59.070
  • as he preached
  • 00:01:59.070 --> 00:02:00.090
  • to the other prisoners.
  • 00:02:00.090 --> 00:02:01.250
  • It's pretty amazing
  • 00:02:01.250 --> 00:02:03.110
  • for a powerful king
  • 00:02:03.110 --> 00:02:04.140
  • to go down into his dungeon
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:05.240
  • and listen
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:06.140
  • to someone incarcerated.
  • 00:02:06.140 --> 00:02:08.100
  • And it tells me that Herod
  • 00:02:08.100 --> 00:02:10.070
  • was not a bad man,
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:11.260
  • but he was a weak man.
  • 00:02:11.260 --> 00:02:14.080
  • And Herod's downfall
  • 00:02:14.080 --> 00:02:15.280
  • was not that he was evil
  • 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:17.240
  • and he hated John.
  • 00:02:17.240 --> 00:02:20.010
  • He was a weak man.
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:21.150
  • And if you become
  • 00:02:21.150 --> 00:02:22.130
  • a weak person,
  • 00:02:22.130 --> 00:02:23.200
  • and you don't deal
  • 00:02:23.200 --> 00:02:24.200
  • with the weakness,
  • 00:02:24.200 --> 00:02:26.170
  • it's a matter of time
  • 00:02:26.170 --> 00:02:27.220
  • before you start doing
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:28.200
  • bad things.
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:32.020
  • And so the day comes
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:33.030
  • when he's celebrating
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:34.010
  • his birthday - Herod is.
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:36.070
  • And the crowd is happy.
  • 00:02:38.040 --> 00:02:41.040
  • And then comes the time -
  • 00:02:41.040 --> 00:02:42.000
  • after the food is gone,
  • 00:02:42.000 --> 00:02:42.230
  • and the drink is flowing,
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:45.120
  • it's time for the entertainment.
  • 00:02:45.120 --> 00:02:47.050
  • And the Bible said that
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:48.250
  • it would be a dance number
  • 00:02:48.250 --> 00:02:50.230
  • by the step-daughter of Herod.
  • 00:02:52.050 --> 00:02:55.050
  • And the Bible does not say
  • 00:02:55.050 --> 00:02:57.050
  • what kind of dance it was.
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:02:58.270
  • It could have been
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:00.280
  • the hokey pokey.
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:05.000
  • But that's not what
  • 00:03:05.000 --> 00:03:06.030
  • it's all about.
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:07.270
  • I think there's more to it.
  • 00:03:07.270 --> 00:03:10.090
  • Come on.
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:11.180
  • That's a good joke,
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:12.100
  • and you know it is.
  • 00:03:12.100 --> 00:03:14.120
  • I think there was a little more
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.100
  • to this dance.
  • 00:03:15.100 --> 00:03:16.230
  • Let's read in between
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:18.070
  • the spaces.
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:23.010
  • After being all liquored up,
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:24.210
  • the crowd is going
  • 00:03:24.210 --> 00:03:26.050
  • absolutely crazy.
  • 00:03:26.050 --> 00:03:27.270
  • And Herod himself
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:29.250
  • has so let himself go,
  • 00:03:29.250 --> 00:03:31.260
  • so overtaken with lust,
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:34.150
  • and with pleasure,
  • 00:03:34.150 --> 00:03:37.070
  • and drunkenness.
  • 00:03:37.070 --> 00:03:39.220
  • He wasn't a bad man.
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:44.100
  • He was a weak man.
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:47.030
  • That now,
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:48.150
  • because he's in
  • 00:03:48.150 --> 00:03:49.050
  • the wrong atmosphere
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:50.040
  • with the wrong people,
  • 00:03:50.040 --> 00:03:51.040
  • is about to do a bad thing.
  • 00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:56.160
  • And the Bible said that
  • 00:03:56.160 --> 00:03:58.130
  • the dance pleased Herod.
  • 00:04:01.290 --> 00:04:04.290
  • Herod was not his real name.
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:07.000
  • It was his given name.
  • 00:04:07.000 --> 00:04:08.110
  • Herod means, in Greek, hero.
  • 00:04:08.110 --> 00:04:11.000
  • He was given hero status,
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:13.120
  • and so what she did fed
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:15.090
  • the hero part of him.
  • 00:04:15.180 --> 00:04:18.180
  • The part that likes that power
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:21.210
  • and that ego.
  • 00:04:21.210 --> 00:04:23.210
  • There's a hero part
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:24.120
  • of every boy.
  • 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:25.290
  • Boys want to be heroes.
  • 00:04:25.290 --> 00:04:28.100
  • That's why we climb trees.
  • 00:04:28.100 --> 00:04:29.180
  • That's why boys stuff
  • 00:04:29.180 --> 00:04:31.090
  • stuff up their nose
  • 00:04:31.090 --> 00:04:32.040
  • when they're little.
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:33.040
  • It's something about it.
  • 00:04:33.040 --> 00:04:34.280
  • You know, you can say
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:36.210
  • to a little boy,
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:38.070
  • now don't you ever eat
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:39.060
  • that deodorizer in the toilet,
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:41.030
  • boy, that you see -
  • 00:04:41.030 --> 00:04:43.030
  • that blue deodorizer -
  • 00:04:43.030 --> 00:04:44.030
  • 'cause that will kill you.
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:45.120
  • And you'll come back in,
  • 00:04:45.120 --> 00:04:46.120
  • and that boy will have
  • 00:04:46.120 --> 00:04:47.020
  • blue stuff all over his -
  • 00:04:47.020 --> 00:04:49.000
  • it's just something about us.
  • 00:04:49.240 --> 00:04:52.240
  • And so when it says he was
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:55.050
  • a hero - Herod is the hero,
  • 00:04:55.050 --> 00:04:57.110
  • and the Bible said
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:59.050
  • she pleased him.
  • 00:04:59.050 --> 00:05:00.190
  • The word pleased in the Greek
  • 00:05:00.190 --> 00:05:01.290
  • means the lifting of an anchor
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:03.280
  • and getting carried away.
  • 00:05:03.280 --> 00:05:05.230
  • Wow.
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:06.110
  • Any restraint that he had,
  • 00:05:06.110 --> 00:05:08.010
  • she so pleased him
  • 00:05:08.010 --> 00:05:09.130
  • that he lifted the anchor
  • 00:05:09.130 --> 00:05:11.080
  • and got carried away.
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:14.190
  • The Bible said that
  • 00:05:14.280 --> 00:05:17.280
  • there's pleasure in sin
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:19.040
  • for a season.
  • 00:05:19.040 --> 00:05:20.160
  • Moses chose God rather than
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:22.290
  • the pleasures of sin
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:24.090
  • for a season.
  • 00:05:24.090 --> 00:05:26.190
  • And in this moment
  • 00:05:26.190 --> 00:05:28.050
  • of hero status,
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:29.220
  • he gets all carried away,
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:32.040
  • and he's so into the moment
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:33.260
  • that he makes a big statement,
  • 00:05:34.240 --> 00:05:37.240
  • and he says you can
  • 00:05:37.240 --> 00:05:38.140
  • have anything
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:39.140
  • up to half that I own.
  • 00:05:39.140 --> 00:05:40.260
  • Ask of me what you want.
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:42.260
  • What will the girl ask for?
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:45.020
  • Everybody - you could hear
  • 00:05:45.020 --> 00:05:46.110
  • a pin drop in that room.
  • 00:05:46.110 --> 00:05:48.020
  • What will she ask for?
  • 00:05:48.020 --> 00:05:49.220
  • Will she want her own palace?
  • 00:05:49.220 --> 00:05:51.220
  • Will she want
  • 00:05:51.220 --> 00:05:52.100
  • mountains of gold?
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:54.000
  • What will she want?
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:55.050
  • Will she want diamonds
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:57.030
  • and rubies?
  • 00:05:57.030 --> 00:05:58.270
  • This could change her life.
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:06:00.110
  • This could alter her
  • 00:06:00.110 --> 00:06:01.110
  • the rest of her life.
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:02.010
  • This could change everything.
  • 00:06:02.010 --> 00:06:03.250
  • She can have anything
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:05.030
  • she wants.
  • 00:06:05.030 --> 00:06:07.220
  • And instead of answering
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:09.080
  • the question -
  • 00:06:09.080 --> 00:06:10.170
  • notice when it's time
  • 00:06:10.170 --> 00:06:11.180
  • to pay the high cost
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:13.090
  • of low living,
  • 00:06:13.090 --> 00:06:15.060
  • you don't decide the cost.
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:19.290
  • Nor did the girl.
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.060
  • But she goes over
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:22.030
  • into another room.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:23.220
  • She says I'll be right back,
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:24.230
  • and she goes over
  • 00:06:24.230 --> 00:06:25.220
  • into another room.
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:26.260
  • And her mother,
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:27.270
  • who hated John the Baptist,
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:30.200
  • was sitting in the shadows
  • 00:06:30.200 --> 00:06:31.220
  • of that room.
  • 00:06:31.220 --> 00:06:33.040
  • And she says Mother,
  • 00:06:33.250 --> 00:06:36.250
  • what should I ask for?
  • 00:06:37.090 --> 00:06:40.090
  • It's the opportunity
  • 00:06:40.090 --> 00:06:41.020
  • of a lifetime.
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:42.050
  • What should I do, Mother?
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:43.210
  • And she said ask
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:44.190
  • for John the Baptist's head
  • 00:06:44.190 --> 00:06:46.030
  • on a platter.
  • 00:06:46.030 --> 00:06:48.250
  • Hear the bitterness.
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:49.200
  • Hear the evil.
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:51.090
  • Are you sure?
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:53.250
  • That's exactly what you need
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:54.230
  • to ask for.
  • 00:06:54.230 --> 00:06:56.060
  • I don't ever want to hear
  • 00:06:56.060 --> 00:06:57.160
  • that voice of repentance again.
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:06:59.220
  • He kept screaming to me
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:01.100
  • repent, repent, repent.
  • 00:07:01.100 --> 00:07:03.000
  • I don't ever want to feel
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:03.250
  • conviction again.
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:04.280
  • I don't ever want to hear
  • 00:07:04.280 --> 00:07:05.220
  • that voice again.
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:07.140
  • I want you to cut that head off
  • 00:07:07.140 --> 00:07:09.070
  • so you stop that voice
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:10.200
  • in our life.
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:16.060
  • The Bible said that she came in,
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:17.130
  • and she said, I want for
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:19.040
  • the payment of the dance
  • 00:07:19.040 --> 00:07:21.290
  • the head of John the Baptist
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:24.120
  • on a platter.
  • 00:07:24.120 --> 00:07:26.190
  • And the scripture said -
  • 00:07:26.190 --> 00:07:27.170
  • catch it -
  • 00:07:27.170 --> 00:07:28.060
  • Herod was exceedingly sorry.
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:32.020
  • Whatever makes the hero happy
  • 00:07:32.020 --> 00:07:34.270
  • makes the king sorry.
  • 00:07:34.290 --> 00:07:37.290
  • Whatever pleases the Herod
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:39.140
  • in us breaks the heart
  • 00:07:39.260 --> 00:07:42.260
  • of the king in us.
  • 00:07:42.260 --> 00:07:45.100
  • Every man and every person
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:47.190
  • here has two natures
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:50.080
  • inside of you.
  • 00:07:50.080 --> 00:07:51.250
  • The nature of the Herod
  • 00:07:51.250 --> 00:07:54.160
  • or the hero side - the ego side,
  • 00:07:54.160 --> 00:07:56.170
  • the flesh side -
  • 00:07:56.170 --> 00:07:57.280
  • or the king side.
  • 00:07:59.100 --> 00:08:02.120
  • And if you please the hero side,
  • 00:08:02.120 --> 00:08:03.170
  • you will always make
  • 00:08:03.170 --> 00:08:05.070
  • the king side
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:06.290
  • exceedingly sorry.
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:11.060
  • The story speaks to every
  • 00:08:11.060 --> 00:08:12.000
  • one of us in everyday life.
  • 00:08:12.000 --> 00:08:13.050
  • Let me give it to you.
  • 00:08:13.050 --> 00:08:14.270
  • Herod the hero speaks
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:16.070
  • of our flesh
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:16.270
  • and our carnal desires.
  • 00:08:16.270 --> 00:08:18.200
  • Herod's step-daughter,
  • 00:08:18.200 --> 00:08:21.000
  • the dancer,
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:22.020
  • speaks of the pleasures
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:23.180
  • of the world.
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:24.190
  • The lust of the flesh,
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:25.210
  • the lust of the eyes,
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:26.190
  • the pride of life.
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:28.050
  • The enticing web
  • 00:08:28.090 --> 00:08:31.090
  • that Satan spreads.
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:33.090
  • The dancing daughter
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:36.020
  • is Satan's web.
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:37.210
  • She dances,
  • 00:08:37.210 --> 00:08:38.180
  • and she's on every billboard,
  • 00:08:38.190 --> 00:08:41.190
  • and she's on
  • 00:08:41.190 --> 00:08:42.100
  • every computer screen,
  • 00:08:42.100 --> 00:08:43.140
  • and she's constantly trying
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:45.090
  • to enter into our life.
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:47.010
  • To feed the hero,
  • 00:08:47.010 --> 00:08:49.010
  • to feed the ego,
  • 00:08:49.010 --> 00:08:50.100
  • to feed the carnal desires.
  • 00:08:50.100 --> 00:08:52.190
  • But there's also
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:56.100
  • another character that is seen,
  • 00:08:56.100 --> 00:08:59.040
  • and Satan does not want you
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:00.160
  • to rule and reign as the king
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:02.180
  • over your home,
  • 00:09:02.180 --> 00:09:03.210
  • and over your flesh,
  • 00:09:03.210 --> 00:09:04.140
  • and over your family.
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:06.220
  • He wants to destroy you.
  • 00:09:07.060 --> 00:09:10.060
  • And Herodias speaks
  • 00:09:10.060 --> 00:09:11.080
  • of Satan himself.
  • 00:09:11.080 --> 00:09:13.260
  • The wife of Herod, Herodias,
  • 00:09:13.260 --> 00:09:16.130
  • speaks of Satan himself.
  • 00:09:16.130 --> 00:09:18.280
  • Notice that the decision
  • 00:09:18.280 --> 00:09:19.170
  • was made in the shadows
  • 00:09:19.170 --> 00:09:21.020
  • of another room.
  • 00:09:21.020 --> 00:09:22.140
  • What the cost would be
  • 00:09:22.140 --> 00:09:23.210
  • for the dance.
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:25.060
  • She was really the brains
  • 00:09:25.060 --> 00:09:26.290
  • behind the whole set-up.
  • 00:09:26.290 --> 00:09:29.130
  • Just as Satan sits in the dark.
  • 00:09:29.130 --> 00:09:31.140
  • He never reveals himself,
  • 00:09:31.140 --> 00:09:33.190
  • and he allows us
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:35.000
  • to feed our ego,
  • 00:09:35.000 --> 00:09:36.130
  • and feed the hero,
  • 00:09:36.130 --> 00:09:37.010
  • and feed the carnal desires,
  • 00:09:37.010 --> 00:09:38.240
  • and says you can dance with it,
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:40.240
  • and you can play with it,
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:42.000
  • and it won't hurt you.
  • 00:09:42.000 --> 00:09:42.290
  • But notice in the shadows,
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.170
  • she's lurking.
  • 00:09:44.170 --> 00:09:45.250
  • And she's the decider
  • 00:09:46.120 --> 00:09:49.120
  • of the cost of the dance.
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:52.130
  • Not you.
  • 00:09:52.130 --> 00:09:53.210
  • You don't decide how much
  • 00:09:53.210 --> 00:09:54.280
  • you will pay for that dance.
  • 00:09:54.280 --> 00:09:56.290
  • She does.
  • 00:09:56.290 --> 00:09:59.070
  • You don't get to choose
  • 00:09:59.070 --> 00:10:02.020
  • the price you pay for the dance.
  • 00:10:02.020 --> 00:10:04.170
  • I'll pay this, I'll pay that.
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:06.070
  • You don't get to decide.
  • 00:10:06.070 --> 00:10:07.230
  • The cost of the dance
  • 00:10:07.230 --> 00:10:09.240
  • will be decided in another room
  • 00:10:09.240 --> 00:10:12.030
  • by someone else
  • 00:10:12.030 --> 00:10:13.090
  • that is a type of Satan.
  • 00:10:14.020 --> 00:10:17.020
  • You may look at the price tag
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:19.020
  • of your dance,
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:20.110
  • whatever your dance
  • 00:10:20.110 --> 00:10:21.010
  • is with the flesh,
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:22.150
  • and you may decide
  • 00:10:22.150 --> 00:10:24.070
  • that it's a price
  • 00:10:24.070 --> 00:10:25.050
  • you're willing to pay.
  • 00:10:25.050 --> 00:10:26.250
  • You put a price tag on it,
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:28.230
  • and it's how much it's going to
  • 00:10:28.230 --> 00:10:30.070
  • cost you, and that's what
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:31.150
  • you've decided.
  • 00:10:31.150 --> 00:10:32.230
  • But you don't decide
  • 00:10:32.230 --> 00:10:33.160
  • the high cost of low living.
  • 00:10:36.000 --> 00:10:39.000
  • She decided.
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:39.230
  • That mother.
  • 00:10:39.230 --> 00:10:41.020
  • I can see that daughter,
  • 00:10:41.020 --> 00:10:43.020
  • who's just a reflection
  • 00:10:43.020 --> 00:10:44.100
  • of her mother, only much, much -
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:47.200
  • many years younger.
  • 00:10:47.200 --> 00:10:49.100
  • And the mother's older,
  • 00:10:49.100 --> 00:10:51.160
  • and she says to her,
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:55.000
  • get me the head of that
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:56.150
  • John the Baptist on a platter.
  • 00:10:56.150 --> 00:10:58.180
  • I want the head of John.
  • 00:10:58.180 --> 00:11:00.260
  • John, that voice
  • 00:11:00.260 --> 00:11:01.270
  • that kept preaching repent,
  • 00:11:01.270 --> 00:11:03.080
  • repent, repent, repent, repent.
  • 00:11:03.100 --> 00:11:06.100
  • Go another way.
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:07.050
  • Change your way.
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:08.190
  • Stop going and doing
  • 00:11:08.190 --> 00:11:09.130
  • what you're doing.
  • 00:11:09.130 --> 00:11:11.070
  • And she was saying I don't want
  • 00:11:11.070 --> 00:11:12.130
  • to hear that voice
  • 00:11:12.130 --> 00:11:13.170
  • of conviction anymore.
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:16.070
  • I want to be
  • 00:11:16.070 --> 00:11:17.160
  • in this relationship.
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:18.090
  • I know it's not of God.
  • 00:11:18.090 --> 00:11:19.250
  • I'm married to this man,
  • 00:11:19.250 --> 00:11:21.250
  • and we're in incest.
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:23.140
  • In an incestual relationship,
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:25.120
  • and I don't want
  • 00:11:25.120 --> 00:11:26.110
  • a voice convicting me,
  • 00:11:26.110 --> 00:11:28.130
  • making me feel guilty.
  • 00:11:28.130 --> 00:11:30.230
  • I love this situation,
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:32.210
  • I love this flesh,
  • 00:11:32.210 --> 00:11:34.090
  • I love this sin that I'm in,
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:36.180
  • and I want the voice
  • 00:11:36.180 --> 00:11:38.040
  • of conviction to die.
  • 00:11:38.040 --> 00:11:40.270
  • The voice is telling me
  • 00:11:40.270 --> 00:11:41.180
  • to convert, to change,
  • 00:11:41.180 --> 00:11:43.020
  • to repent,
  • 00:11:43.020 --> 00:11:43.190
  • to go a different way.
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:44.160
  • I don't want to hear it anymore.
  • 00:11:44.160 --> 00:11:46.270
  • I don't want it.
  • 00:11:48.270 --> 00:11:51.270
  • The cost of the dance is
  • 00:11:51.270 --> 00:11:54.090
  • it cuts the head off
  • 00:11:54.090 --> 00:11:56.070
  • of repentance.
  • 00:11:56.070 --> 00:11:57.100
  • When John's head rolls,
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:11:59.080
  • you'll never hear repent again.
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:02.170
  • John, you'll never cry
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:06.180
  • in her ear
  • 00:12:06.180 --> 00:12:08.160
  • change, change, change.
  • 00:12:08.160 --> 00:12:10.090
  • I'm saying to you today
  • 00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:11.160
  • that if there's things
  • 00:12:11.160 --> 00:12:12.270
  • in your life
  • 00:12:12.270 --> 00:12:13.260
  • that are compromised,
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:15.120
  • and you know
  • 00:12:15.120 --> 00:12:16.050
  • that it's open sin,
  • 00:12:16.050 --> 00:12:16.280
  • and you're hearing a voice
  • 00:12:16.280 --> 00:12:18.120
  • that's saying
  • 00:12:18.120 --> 00:12:19.130
  • change, change, change,
  • 00:12:19.130 --> 00:12:20.270
  • repent, repent,
  • 00:12:20.270 --> 00:12:21.160
  • you are so blessed,
  • 00:12:21.160 --> 00:12:22.220
  • and you don't know it.
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:24.110
  • The day that is dangerous
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:26.000
  • is when you no longer hear
  • 00:12:26.000 --> 00:12:27.240
  • that voice.
  • 00:12:27.240 --> 00:12:28.150
  • It means you have had to pay
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:30.080
  • the price for the dancer,
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:33.010
  • which is to cut off that voice.
  • 00:12:34.270 --> 00:12:37.270
  • His voice will be silenced
  • 00:12:37.270 --> 00:12:39.100
  • once the head rolls.
  • 00:12:39.100 --> 00:12:41.040
  • The price of the dance.
  • 00:12:41.040 --> 00:12:43.030
  • The voice of repentance
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:44.260
  • in your heart will cease.
  • 00:12:44.260 --> 00:12:46.200
  • And things that used to
  • 00:12:46.200 --> 00:12:47.210
  • convict you, and things
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:49.210
  • that used to bother you,
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:51.010
  • and things
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:52.000
  • you wouldn't go around,
  • 00:12:52.000 --> 00:12:53.210
  • look at, get around, be near -
  • 00:12:53.210 --> 00:12:55.160
  • suddenly you've cut off
  • 00:12:55.160 --> 00:12:56.200
  • the voice that says change,
  • 00:12:56.200 --> 00:12:58.150
  • stop, stop, repent, repent.
  • 00:12:58.150 --> 00:13:00.170
  • And you no longer hear
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:01.160
  • that voice.
  • 00:13:01.160 --> 00:13:03.140
  • Now imagine with me
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:08.100
  • when John's head rolled,
  • 00:13:08.100 --> 00:13:10.170
  • Herod and Herodias, his wife,
  • 00:13:10.170 --> 00:13:13.150
  • were immediately reconciled.
  • 00:13:13.150 --> 00:13:16.120
  • All that tension was gone
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:17.090
  • out of the marriage.
  • 00:13:17.090 --> 00:13:18.290
  • We're going to get along
  • 00:13:18.290 --> 00:13:20.020
  • good now.
  • 00:13:20.020 --> 00:13:21.130
  • And, you know, when you stop
  • 00:13:21.130 --> 00:13:22.180
  • coming to church,
  • 00:13:22.180 --> 00:13:23.090
  • and when you stop hearing
  • 00:13:23.090 --> 00:13:24.170
  • the Word,
  • 00:13:24.170 --> 00:13:25.170
  • you get along good
  • 00:13:25.170 --> 00:13:26.120
  • with the devil.
  • 00:13:26.120 --> 00:13:28.270
  • You get along good
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:29.160
  • with your sin.
  • 00:13:29.160 --> 00:13:31.060
  • It's when you come to church
  • 00:13:31.060 --> 00:13:32.060
  • and Franklin Jentezen
  • 00:13:32.060 --> 00:13:34.080
  • has a message from God
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:35.080
  • right up in your business
  • 00:13:35.080 --> 00:13:37.130
  • that you start feeling
  • 00:13:37.260 --> 00:13:40.260
  • the tension.
  • 00:13:40.260 --> 00:13:42.240
  • It's called conviction.
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:48.090
  • The cry to change is now gone.
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:53.250
  • The cry to repent is now gone,
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:56.210
  • so they're getting along
  • 00:13:56.210 --> 00:13:57.210
  • good now.
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:13:58.210
  • They're holding hands
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:13:59.120
  • in the courtyard.
  • 00:13:59.120 --> 00:14:00.210
  • Lovey-dovey.
  • 00:14:01.090 --> 00:14:04.090
  • They're reconciled.
  • 00:14:04.090 --> 00:14:05.020
  • There's no conviction.
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:06.000
  • There's no sense of guilt.
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:08.030
  • There's no sense of wrong-doing
  • 00:14:08.030 --> 00:14:10.250
  • 'cause nobody's preaching
  • 00:14:10.250 --> 00:14:11.210
  • against it.
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:12.210
  • The preacher's head is gone.
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:14.210
  • The voice is silenced.
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:15.280
  • I'm good.
  • 00:14:15.280 --> 00:14:18.110
  • That's how people
  • 00:14:18.110 --> 00:14:20.250
  • sit in the church.
  • 00:14:20.250 --> 00:14:22.070
  • If you think you're going to
  • 00:14:23.070 --> 00:14:26.070
  • change me, you're crazy.
  • 00:14:26.070 --> 00:14:27.170
  • I hear you.
  • 00:14:27.170 --> 00:14:28.060
  • I feel you today.
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:30.040
  • If you think you're going to
  • 00:14:30.040 --> 00:14:32.070
  • make me stop doing what my flesh
  • 00:14:32.070 --> 00:14:34.130
  • and my ego loves,
  • 00:14:34.130 --> 00:14:35.260
  • you can't stop me.
  • 00:14:35.260 --> 00:14:38.030
  • I'm going to dance
  • 00:14:38.030 --> 00:14:38.270
  • with the dancer.
  • 00:14:38.270 --> 00:14:40.160
  • If that's the case,
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:43.090
  • and you don't feel convicted
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:44.050
  • by it anymore,
  • 00:14:44.050 --> 00:14:45.140
  • can I just get blunt?
  • 00:14:46.140 --> 00:14:49.140
  • If you don't feel convicted
  • 00:14:49.140 --> 00:14:50.170
  • about getting drunk,
  • 00:14:50.170 --> 00:14:52.020
  • or you don't feel convicted
  • 00:14:52.020 --> 00:14:52.250
  • about sleeping
  • 00:14:52.250 --> 00:14:54.020
  • with your girlfriend,
  • 00:14:54.020 --> 00:14:56.040
  • or you don't even feel convicted
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:14:57.200
  • about going out
  • 00:14:57.200 --> 00:14:58.170
  • with that boy
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:14:59.110
  • and doing things that you know
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:00.210
  • are not - you don't even feel
  • 00:15:00.210 --> 00:15:02.000
  • convicted cheating on your wife,
  • 00:15:02.000 --> 00:15:03.210
  • you don't even feel convicted
  • 00:15:03.210 --> 00:15:04.160
  • looking at that computer,
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:05.240
  • you don't even feel convicted
  • 00:15:05.240 --> 00:15:07.210
  • anymore -
  • 00:15:07.210 --> 00:15:08.290
  • what you have done
  • 00:15:08.290 --> 00:15:10.120
  • is you have already paid
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:11.220
  • the dancer.
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:13.170
  • There's no conviction.
  • 00:15:13.170 --> 00:15:16.020
  • There's no sense
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:17.230
  • of condemnation.
  • 00:15:17.230 --> 00:15:19.160
  • And when you do wrong
  • 00:15:19.160 --> 00:15:22.130
  • and feel no guilt,
  • 00:15:22.130 --> 00:15:24.030
  • you've lost the voice
  • 00:15:24.030 --> 00:15:25.000
  • of repentance.
  • 00:15:25.000 --> 00:15:26.170
  • My God, if you feel anything
  • 00:15:26.170 --> 00:15:28.010
  • in this room while
  • 00:15:28.010 --> 00:15:30.020
  • I'm preaching to you,
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:32.200
  • wherever you're watching
  • 00:15:32.200 --> 00:15:33.200
  • this program,
  • 00:15:33.200 --> 00:15:34.170
  • and you're doing things
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:35.080
  • that you know are not right,
  • 00:15:35.080 --> 00:15:36.260
  • and while I'm preaching,
  • 00:15:36.260 --> 00:15:37.270
  • the Holy Spirit
  • 00:15:37.270 --> 00:15:38.280
  • is bringing up your dancer,
  • 00:15:38.280 --> 00:15:40.220
  • you ought to thank God
  • 00:15:40.220 --> 00:15:43.110
  • that voice is still in your ear.
  • 00:15:43.110 --> 00:15:46.100
  • It's proof of your salvation.
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:48.050
  • It's proof of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:15:48.050 --> 00:15:50.120
  • residing in your heart.
  • 00:15:50.140 --> 00:15:53.140
  • Somebody praise God
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:54.260
  • for conviction.
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:16:00.030
  • The church has lost this.
  • 00:16:00.030 --> 00:16:01.280
  • We don't even talk about sin.
  • 00:16:01.280 --> 00:16:04.040
  • We don't even talk about wrong.
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:06.150
  • We don't even talk about
  • 00:16:06.150 --> 00:16:07.100
  • morality in the house of God.
  • 00:16:07.100 --> 00:16:09.080
  • And if we won't talk about it,
  • 00:16:09.080 --> 00:16:11.060
  • the world never will, preachers.
  • 00:16:13.190 --> 00:16:16.190
  • And if the church loses
  • 00:16:16.190 --> 00:16:17.290
  • the voice of repentance,
  • 00:16:17.290 --> 00:16:19.220
  • we've lost it all.
  • 00:16:24.280 --> 00:16:27.280
  • John has to meet you first
  • 00:16:27.280 --> 00:16:28.210
  • before Jesus will ever meet you.
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:30.120
  • He was the forerunner,
  • 00:16:30.120 --> 00:16:31.240
  • and if you don't repent,
  • 00:16:31.240 --> 00:16:33.040
  • you never get the encounter
  • 00:16:33.040 --> 00:16:34.170
  • of the presence of Jesus.
  • 00:16:34.170 --> 00:16:36.070
  • If you lose the voice
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:38.050
  • of conviction
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:38.290
  • and repentance of your sin,
  • 00:16:38.290 --> 00:16:40.220
  • then you lose the presence
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:42.180
  • of Jesus.
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:43.160
  • Because he's the forerunner
  • 00:16:43.160 --> 00:16:45.050
  • of the real thing,
  • 00:16:45.050 --> 00:16:46.050
  • Jesus Christ.
  • 00:16:48.100 --> 00:16:51.100
  • The final payment for the dancer
  • 00:16:51.100 --> 00:16:52.180
  • is one of the saddest scriptures
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:55.090
  • in the Bible
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:56.100
  • that I'm coming to a close with.
  • 00:16:56.100 --> 00:16:58.280
  • It's the final payment
  • 00:16:58.280 --> 00:17:00.200
  • to the dancer that every person
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:03.190
  • has to pay if you -
  • 00:17:03.190 --> 00:17:04.270
  • here's what I want to say.
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:10.110
  • If at some point he would have
  • 00:17:10.110 --> 00:17:11.220
  • stopped the dance
  • 00:17:11.220 --> 00:17:13.060
  • in the middle of the dance,
  • 00:17:13.060 --> 00:17:15.140
  • he wouldn't have had
  • 00:17:15.140 --> 00:17:16.120
  • to pay for the dancer.
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:19.040
  • What I'm saying to you is,
  • 00:17:19.040 --> 00:17:20.100
  • stop the dance.
  • 00:17:20.100 --> 00:17:22.160
  • Stop it.
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:24.130
  • Stop it now.
  • 00:17:24.130 --> 00:17:25.210
  • Stop it while God's grace
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:26.280
  • has you covered.
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:28.040
  • Stop it while
  • 00:17:28.040 --> 00:17:29.000
  • there's forgiveness.
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:30.090
  • Stop it while you're hearing
  • 00:17:30.090 --> 00:17:32.000
  • the voice saying
  • 00:17:32.000 --> 00:17:32.250
  • change, change, change.
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:34.100
  • Stop, stop, stop.
  • 00:17:34.100 --> 00:17:35.040
  • Repent, repent, repent.
  • 00:17:35.040 --> 00:17:36.150
  • Stop it now.
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:38.000
  • Because if you stop before
  • 00:17:38.000 --> 00:17:38.230
  • the dance is finished,
  • 00:17:38.230 --> 00:17:40.110
  • you don't have to pay
  • 00:17:40.110 --> 00:17:41.070
  • for the dance.
  • 00:17:42.070 --> 00:17:45.070
  • That's what the cross was about.
  • 00:17:45.070 --> 00:17:46.210
  • The cross covers us.
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:48.030
  • But if you don't get out of it,
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:52.290
  • you're going to have to pay
  • 00:17:52.290 --> 00:17:55.100
  • the high cost of low living.
  • 00:17:55.100 --> 00:17:58.040
  • Stop the affair.
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:02.050
  • Stop the lunches
  • 00:18:02.050 --> 00:18:04.230
  • with the secretary.
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:08.030
  • Stop.
  • 00:18:08.030 --> 00:18:11.010
  • It's going to cost you
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:11.210
  • your children.
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:12.180
  • You want somebody else
  • 00:18:12.180 --> 00:18:13.140
  • to walk your daughter
  • 00:18:13.140 --> 00:18:14.090
  • down the aisle
  • 00:18:14.090 --> 00:18:15.220
  • 'cause she can't stand you
  • 00:18:15.220 --> 00:18:17.240
  • 'cause you cheated
  • 00:18:17.240 --> 00:18:19.100
  • on her mother?
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:23.010
  • Yeah, I need to put my head
  • 00:18:23.010 --> 00:18:23.270
  • on a platter.
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:24.240
  • I'm getting people mad
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:26.210
  • and angry at me.
  • 00:18:26.210 --> 00:18:27.190
  • But you know what?
  • 00:18:27.190 --> 00:18:28.140
  • It's the truth.
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:30.270
  • It's going to cost you.
  • 00:18:30.270 --> 00:18:32.170
  • Stop.
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:34.060
  • Stop the dance.
  • 00:18:34.060 --> 00:18:35.200
  • Stop it.
  • 00:18:35.200 --> 00:18:37.090
  • Stop the drinking.
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:39.250
  • Stop the hypocrisy.
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:40.110
  • Stop the shady stuff.
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:42.180
  • Stop the lying, the stealing,
  • 00:18:42.180 --> 00:18:43.160
  • the cheating in the business.
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:44.110
  • Stop the dance.
  • 00:18:44.110 --> 00:18:46.120
  • Because you can't do wrong
  • 00:18:46.120 --> 00:18:47.290
  • and be all right.
  • 00:18:47.290 --> 00:18:49.170
  • You're going to pay
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:51.000
  • for the dance.
  • 00:18:51.000 --> 00:18:52.280
  • But if you stop now -
  • 00:18:52.280 --> 00:18:54.180
  • if you're doing illegal stuff,
  • 00:18:54.180 --> 00:18:56.070
  • stop now.
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:18:57.130
  • God's grace may cover you.
  • 00:18:58.210 --> 00:19:01.230
  • But if you don't -
  • 00:19:01.230 --> 00:19:03.060
  • see Revelation said
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:03.270
  • there's a space of grace.
  • 00:19:03.270 --> 00:19:05.280
  • And I'm telling you,
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:07.190
  • I feel the Holy Spirit
  • 00:19:07.190 --> 00:19:08.190
  • right now.
  • 00:19:08.190 --> 00:19:09.250
  • Revelation talks about
  • 00:19:09.250 --> 00:19:11.250
  • a space of grace.
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:14.230
  • It means God will give you
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:16.050
  • a time,
  • 00:19:16.050 --> 00:19:17.290
  • but you've got this much.
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:20.050
  • You got a beginning and an end
  • 00:19:20.050 --> 00:19:21.080
  • to repent of that thing,
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:23.220
  • and get out of that living with
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:25.180
  • somebody you're not married.
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:27.010
  • Stop the dance.
  • 00:19:27.010 --> 00:19:28.000
  • Stop it.
  • 00:19:28.250 --> 00:19:31.250
  • God's given you grace.
  • 00:19:31.250 --> 00:19:33.030
  • Now get out.
  • 00:19:33.030 --> 00:19:35.250
  • Because if you keep staying,
  • 00:19:35.250 --> 00:19:37.030
  • you're going to have to pay
  • 00:19:37.030 --> 00:19:38.270
  • the high cost of low living.
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:43.190
  • And you don't decide the cost.
  • 00:19:43.190 --> 00:19:45.250
  • The devil does.
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:48.160
  • It might cost you your children.
  • 00:19:48.160 --> 00:19:50.010
  • It might cost you your freedom.
  • 00:19:50.010 --> 00:19:52.290
  • It might cost you
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:53.230
  • your reputation.
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:55.180
  • It might cost you your marriage.
  • 00:19:56.050 --> 00:19:59.050
  • It might cost you your respect.
  • 00:19:59.050 --> 00:20:01.220
  • You don't decide the cost.
  • 00:20:02.010 --> 00:20:05.010
  • The devil does.
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:07.150
  • And we see the final payment
  • 00:20:07.210 --> 00:20:10.210
  • of the dance in Luke 23:8.
  • 00:20:14.100 --> 00:20:17.100
  • Now when Herod saw Jesus,
  • 00:20:17.100 --> 00:20:18.140
  • he was exceedingly glad.
  • 00:20:20.290 --> 00:20:23.290
  • Do you know how long it's been?
  • 00:20:23.290 --> 00:20:25.090
  • For it had been a long time.
  • 00:20:25.090 --> 00:20:27.100
  • He had wanted for a long time
  • 00:20:27.100 --> 00:20:28.070
  • to see him.
  • 00:20:28.070 --> 00:20:30.020
  • Then he questioned Him
  • 00:20:30.020 --> 00:20:31.010
  • with many words,
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:34.180
  • but He answered him nothing.
  • 00:20:35.100 --> 00:20:38.100
  • Listen to this now.
  • 00:20:38.100 --> 00:20:41.030
  • The only man in the Bible
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:42.290
  • that Jesus did not speak to
  • 00:20:44.050 --> 00:20:47.050
  • that He encountered was Herod.
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:49.180
  • Why?
  • 00:20:49.180 --> 00:20:50.200
  • Because if you stop and cut off
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:55.020
  • the voice of repentance
  • 00:20:55.020 --> 00:20:57.040
  • in your life,
  • 00:20:57.040 --> 00:20:59.270
  • Jesus has nothing else
  • 00:20:59.270 --> 00:21:02.270
  • to say to you.
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:04.150
  • And one day,
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:06.040
  • He will say depart from me,
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:08.000
  • you worker of iniquity.
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:11.230
  • I never knew you.
  • 00:21:11.250 --> 00:21:14.250
  • It's a serious thing
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:19.060
  • to cut off conviction.
  • 00:21:19.060 --> 00:21:20.180
  • Sear your heart,
  • 00:21:20.180 --> 00:21:22.250
  • as the Bible said,
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:24.200
  • with a hot iron
  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:25.190
  • to where you're cold
  • 00:21:25.190 --> 00:21:27.180
  • and calloused,
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:29.090
  • and you can go out
  • 00:21:29.090 --> 00:21:31.140
  • and do things, and it doesn't
  • 00:21:31.140 --> 00:21:34.030
  • bother you anymore
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:35.050
  • because you've cut off the head.
  • 00:21:35.050 --> 00:21:37.090
  • You've silenced the voice
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:39.010
  • of repentance.
  • 00:21:39.010 --> 00:21:40.150
  • And He said nothing to him.
  • 00:21:45.160 --> 00:21:48.160
  • If you don't have the voice
  • 00:21:48.190 --> 00:21:51.190
  • of repentance in your life,
  • 00:21:51.190 --> 00:21:53.260
  • conviction in your life,
  • 00:21:53.260 --> 00:21:55.270
  • preaching to you continually
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:58.070
  • and you responding,
  • 00:21:58.070 --> 00:21:59.160
  • there will come a point
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:01.190
  • where you will cut
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:02.150
  • that voice off,
  • 00:22:02.150 --> 00:22:03.060
  • and you'll no longer hear Jesus.
  • 00:22:07.040 --> 00:22:10.040
  • Folks, it's so easy in the days
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:11.150
  • and times in which we live
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:13.160
  • to be lulled to sleep
  • 00:22:13.160 --> 00:22:15.030
  • and to feed the flesh.
  • 00:22:16.250 --> 00:22:19.250
  • But God has sent me today
  • 00:22:21.010 --> 00:22:24.010
  • with this message for you to say
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:27.290
  • there's a high cost
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:29.190
  • to low living,
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:33.040
  • but you don't have to
  • 00:22:33.040 --> 00:22:34.040
  • pay that price
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:35.090
  • if you'll stop the dance now.
  • 00:22:36.060 --> 00:22:39.060
  • You're not listening to me
  • 00:22:39.060 --> 00:22:40.030
  • by accident.
  • 00:22:40.030 --> 00:22:41.130
  • You're not hearing this
  • 00:22:41.130 --> 00:22:42.180
  • particular message
  • 00:22:42.180 --> 00:22:43.080
  • by happen chance.
  • 00:22:43.080 --> 00:22:44.140
  • This is the mercy
  • 00:22:44.140 --> 00:22:45.290
  • and the space of grace.
  • 00:22:48.080 --> 00:22:51.080
  • Do not harden your heart.
  • 00:22:51.080 --> 00:22:52.130
  • Do not play games with God.
  • 00:22:52.130 --> 00:22:54.260
  • This is the day of repentance,
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:58.200
  • and there's a voice
  • 00:22:58.200 --> 00:23:00.110
  • saying repent.
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:02.080
  • Change.
  • 00:23:02.080 --> 00:23:03.030
  • Go a different direction.
  • 00:23:03.030 --> 00:23:05.030
  • Stop it.
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:05.270
  • And if you'll heed that voice
  • 00:23:05.270 --> 00:23:08.120
  • and repent of your sins,
  • 00:23:08.120 --> 00:23:10.120
  • Jesus will wash you,
  • 00:23:10.120 --> 00:23:12.110
  • Jesus will cleanse you,
  • 00:23:12.110 --> 00:23:13.180
  • Jesus will fill you
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:15.050
  • with the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:23:15.050 --> 00:23:16.090
  • and Jesus will empower you
  • 00:23:16.090 --> 00:23:18.290
  • to live a victorious life.
  • 00:23:19.060 --> 00:23:22.060
  • If you believe that,
  • 00:23:22.060 --> 00:23:24.040
  • thank Him for His grace.
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:27.020
  • - In our closing moments
  • 00:23:35.210 --> 00:23:36.230
  • of this program,
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:37.290
  • I wanna share with you
  • 00:23:37.290 --> 00:23:39.030
  • a humbling opportunity
  • 00:23:39.030 --> 00:23:41.160
  • that we have to bless
  • 00:23:41.160 --> 00:23:43.040
  • God's chosen people,
  • 00:23:43.040 --> 00:23:44.220
  • and God's chosen land;
  • 00:23:44.220 --> 00:23:46.130
  • the Nation of Israel.
  • 00:23:46.130 --> 00:23:48.240
  • Recently, I travelled there
  • 00:23:48.240 --> 00:23:50.140
  • and visited a community
  • 00:23:50.140 --> 00:23:52.020
  • about 20 minutes
  • 00:23:52.020 --> 00:23:53.160
  • outside of Jerusalem,
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:55.130
  • that had been completely
  • 00:23:55.130 --> 00:23:56.250
  • destroyed by terrorists.
  • 00:23:56.250 --> 00:23:58.160
  • Hundreds of families
  • 00:23:58.160 --> 00:23:59.250
  • were devastated
  • 00:23:59.250 --> 00:24:01.160
  • as their lives were
  • 00:24:01.160 --> 00:24:02.180
  • burned to the ground.
  • 00:24:02.180 --> 00:24:04.010
  • Thankfully, miraculously,
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:06.020
  • not one person lost their life,
  • 00:24:06.020 --> 00:24:08.170
  • but I believe that we are
  • 00:24:08.170 --> 00:24:09.170
  • living in prophetic times.
  • 00:24:09.170 --> 00:24:12.080
  • We can be a part of
  • 00:24:12.080 --> 00:24:14.000
  • fulfilling Biblical prophecy,
  • 00:24:14.000 --> 00:24:16.210
  • found in Isaiah 61;
  • 00:24:16.210 --> 00:24:19.020
  • God promised that,
  • 00:24:19.020 --> 00:24:20.160
  • for their ashes,
  • 00:24:20.160 --> 00:24:22.100
  • He would give them beauty.
  • 00:24:22.180 --> 00:24:25.180
  • He's going to use
  • 00:24:25.180 --> 00:24:26.270
  • you and I to do it.
  • 00:24:26.270 --> 00:24:28.180
  • Together, we're gonna provide
  • 00:24:28.180 --> 00:24:30.110
  • the resources -- I love this.
  • 00:24:30.110 --> 00:24:32.170
  • Listen to this:
  • 00:24:32.170 --> 00:24:33.190
  • to plant trees of victory.
  • 00:24:33.190 --> 00:24:35.270
  • You know that
  • 00:24:35.270 --> 00:24:36.110
  • it actually said that?
  • 00:24:36.110 --> 00:24:37.130
  • It said, in Isaiah 61,
  • 00:24:37.130 --> 00:24:39.150
  • "There would be trees of victory
  • 00:24:39.150 --> 00:24:42.040
  • to rebuild the ruined cities,
  • 00:24:42.040 --> 00:24:44.280
  • to declare that no one
  • 00:24:44.280 --> 00:24:47.010
  • will ever be able
  • 00:24:47.010 --> 00:24:49.010
  • to take the land of Israel away
  • 00:24:49.010 --> 00:24:51.070
  • from the Jewish people again."
  • 00:24:51.070 --> 00:24:53.220
  • Will you help me replant
  • 00:24:53.220 --> 00:24:55.160
  • the trees of victory?
  • 00:24:55.160 --> 00:24:57.080
  • Sometimes, God does require
  • 00:24:57.080 --> 00:24:59.050
  • of us to go extra,
  • 00:24:59.050 --> 00:25:01.180
  • to do something
