  • - Hello, and welcome
  • 00:00:19.070 --> 00:00:20.030
  • to a very special edition
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:21.220
  • of Kingdom Connection.
  • 00:00:21.220 --> 00:00:23.070
  • We're coming to you from
  • 00:00:23.070 --> 00:00:24.000
  • the beautiful city of Jerusalem.
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:25.270
  • It's a beautiful day today.
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:27.210
  • The sun is out,
  • 00:00:27.210 --> 00:00:28.250
  • and the city is showing off.
  • 00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:30.270
  • And you can see
  • 00:00:30.270 --> 00:00:32.040
  • the Temple Mount across from us
  • 00:00:32.040 --> 00:00:34.100
  • and the amazing
  • 00:00:34.100 --> 00:00:36.080
  • city of Jerusalem.
  • 00:00:36.080 --> 00:00:37.230
  • The prophetic city of Jerusalem.
  • 00:00:37.230 --> 00:00:39.150
  • The city where so much
  • 00:00:39.150 --> 00:00:41.290
  • of prophecy has taken place.
  • 00:00:41.290 --> 00:00:44.040
  • And I'm joined today
  • 00:00:44.040 --> 00:00:45.050
  • by a very special guest.
  • 00:00:45.050 --> 00:00:47.070
  • I began developing a friendship
  • 00:00:47.070 --> 00:00:49.200
  • with Rabbi Tuly Weisz,
  • 00:00:49.200 --> 00:00:52.110
  • I guess, a year and half
  • 00:00:52.110 --> 00:00:53.230
  • ago, or so.
  • 00:00:53.230 --> 00:00:55.230
  • And I've found him
  • 00:00:55.230 --> 00:00:57.070
  • to be a man that I believe
  • 00:00:57.070 --> 00:00:59.170
  • is very uniquely poised
  • 00:00:59.210 --> 00:01:02.230
  • to bridge generations.
  • 00:01:02.230 --> 00:01:04.250
  • To stand and bridge
  • 00:01:04.250 --> 00:01:07.080
  • Jews and Christians together
  • 00:01:07.080 --> 00:01:09.180
  • where we can find middle ground
  • 00:01:09.180 --> 00:01:11.270
  • to help the nation of Israel.
  • 00:01:11.270 --> 00:01:14.060
  • And Rabbi Tuly,
  • 00:01:14.060 --> 00:01:15.130
  • it's a wonderful honor today
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:17.070
  • to have you, a joy to have you
  • 00:01:17.070 --> 00:01:18.180
  • on Kingdom Connection.
  • 00:01:18.180 --> 00:01:19.200
  • Welcome, for the first time,
  • 00:01:19.200 --> 00:01:20.270
  • to the program.
  • 00:01:20.270 --> 00:01:21.230
  • Thank you for being here.
  • 00:01:21.230 --> 00:01:22.220
  • - Thank you for having me.
  • 00:01:22.220 --> 00:01:24.010
  • - Well, we've been doing
  • 00:01:24.010 --> 00:01:25.090
  • some filming while
  • 00:01:25.090 --> 00:01:26.040
  • we're here in Israel,
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:27.140
  • and we were down
  • 00:01:27.140 --> 00:01:28.160
  • in the Gaza Strip
  • 00:01:28.160 --> 00:01:29.230
  • filming with you.
  • 00:01:29.230 --> 00:01:30.220
  • And you've been personally
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:31.260
  • involved in, you know,
  • 00:01:31.260 --> 00:01:33.270
  • the stories that we're seeing
  • 00:01:33.270 --> 00:01:35.130
  • in the United States
  • 00:01:35.130 --> 00:01:37.200
  • of rockets constantly
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:39.190
  • and increasingly
  • 00:01:39.190 --> 00:01:41.120
  • hitting settlements there
  • 00:01:41.120 --> 00:01:43.270
  • in that whole area of Israel,
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:45.220
  • and how that the people
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:47.090
  • are suffering.
  • 00:01:47.090 --> 00:01:48.070
  • The homes are being burned,
  • 00:01:48.070 --> 00:01:49.220
  • and cites and whole areas
  • 00:01:49.220 --> 00:01:51.120
  • being burned out with fires,
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:53.190
  • and attacks,
  • 00:01:53.190 --> 00:01:54.210
  • and terrorists tunnels.
  • 00:01:54.210 --> 00:01:56.050
  • And you've seen that
  • 00:01:56.050 --> 00:01:57.240
  • devastation first hand.
  • 00:01:57.240 --> 00:01:59.050
  • What's it like?
  • 00:01:59.050 --> 00:02:00.070
  • What are you seeing?
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:01.140
  • - Well, so they're not only
  • 00:02:01.140 --> 00:02:03.140
  • sending rockets,
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:04.100
  • they're shooting these kites.
  • 00:02:04.100 --> 00:02:05.200
  • These arson kites, right?
  • 00:02:05.200 --> 00:02:08.090
  • And it's causing all kinds
  • 00:02:08.090 --> 00:02:10.000
  • of devastation and damage
  • 00:02:10.000 --> 00:02:11.270
  • to the farms in the south,
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:13.230
  • and there's also
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:15.180
  • other arson areas
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:17.040
  • in the center of the country.
  • 00:02:17.040 --> 00:02:19.070
  • And we were in that
  • 00:02:19.070 --> 00:02:21.030
  • village of Mevo Modi'im,
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:22.250
  • where, in minutes,
  • 00:02:22.250 --> 00:02:24.140
  • the whole community
  • 00:02:24.140 --> 00:02:25.090
  • was devastated,
  • 00:02:25.090 --> 00:02:26.020
  • leaving 50 families homeless
  • 00:02:26.020 --> 00:02:28.100
  • and in great need.
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:30.030
  • And it's heartbreaking
  • 00:02:30.030 --> 00:02:31.240
  • to watch that.
  • 00:02:31.240 --> 00:02:33.090
  • - Yeah, it was pretty touching
  • 00:02:33.090 --> 00:02:34.200
  • to go and to see the children
  • 00:02:35.080 --> 00:02:38.080
  • that had been traumatized,
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:40.000
  • you know.
  • 00:02:40.000 --> 00:02:41.090
  • And by the hundreds
  • 00:02:41.090 --> 00:02:41.290
  • and hundreds.
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:42.250
  • I mean, when you have hundreds
  • 00:02:42.250 --> 00:02:44.110
  • of rockets falling -
  • 00:02:44.110 --> 00:02:45.260
  • we just can't imagine
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.120
  • that kind of terror of living,
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:50.050
  • hearing the sirens go off.
  • 00:02:50.050 --> 00:02:51.190
  • And you've got 15 seconds -
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:53.100
  • a child has 15 seconds to -
  • 00:02:53.110 --> 00:02:56.110
  • they know, they have
  • 00:02:56.110 --> 00:02:57.110
  • in every school
  • 00:02:57.110 --> 00:02:58.110
  • bomb shelters within feet.
  • 00:02:58.140 --> 00:03:01.160
  • Because when those sirens
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:02.190
  • go off, those kids know.
  • 00:03:02.190 --> 00:03:04.200
  • From just - you know,
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:06.150
  • running around.
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:07.280
  • Maybe six, seven,
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:09.100
  • eight years old.
  • 00:03:09.100 --> 00:03:10.130
  • They know instinctively
  • 00:03:10.130 --> 00:03:12.110
  • to run for that shelter.
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:13.220
  • They've got 15 seconds
  • 00:03:13.220 --> 00:03:15.070
  • before a bomb
  • 00:03:15.070 --> 00:03:16.010
  • or a rocket could hit.
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:17.030
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:03:17.030 --> 00:03:17.230
  • Just about two months ago -
  • 00:03:17.230 --> 00:03:18.270
  • it was a Shabbat afternoon.
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:20.100
  • A quiet Shabbat
  • 00:03:20.100 --> 00:03:22.070
  • Saturday afternoon,
  • 00:03:22.070 --> 00:03:23.180
  • and I was on a walk
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:24.190
  • with my wife.
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:26.020
  • All of a sudden hear the sirens.
  • 00:03:26.020 --> 00:03:28.050
  • I was like, what is that?
  • 00:03:28.050 --> 00:03:28.290
  • What's that noise?
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:30.170
  • I wasn't expecting it.
  • 00:03:30.170 --> 00:03:32.010
  • Nobody was expecting it.
  • 00:03:32.010 --> 00:03:33.210
  • And immediately I knew
  • 00:03:33.210 --> 00:03:35.000
  • that was the sound of
  • 00:03:35.000 --> 00:03:36.180
  • an incoming rocket siren.
  • 00:03:36.180 --> 00:03:39.120
  • I didn't know what to do.
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:40.130
  • I left my wife
  • 00:03:40.130 --> 00:03:42.060
  • to run to the kids
  • 00:03:42.060 --> 00:03:43.110
  • 'cause we had five kids
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:44.250
  • in the house by themselves.
  • 00:03:44.250 --> 00:03:46.230
  • And I - they, luckily, were
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:47.200
  • already in the bomb shelter.
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:49.030
  • They knew.
  • 00:03:49.030 --> 00:03:49.170
  • My oldest knew to take
  • 00:03:49.170 --> 00:03:51.020
  • her younger siblings.
  • 00:03:51.020 --> 00:03:52.090
  • But what kind -
  • 00:03:52.090 --> 00:03:53.100
  • what child should have to have
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:56.060
  • that responsibility
  • 00:03:56.060 --> 00:03:57.220
  • of bringing the baby
  • 00:03:57.220 --> 00:03:59.010
  • into the bomb shelter?
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.290
  • And we live in an area that
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:01.290
  • there aren't a lot of rockets,
  • 00:04:01.290 --> 00:04:03.210
  • so we were not expecting it.
  • 00:04:03.210 --> 00:04:04.280
  • But where you're describing
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.080
  • in Sderot, it's on a very -
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:09.010
  • almost a daily occurrence.
  • 00:04:09.010 --> 00:04:11.060
  • - Well, I wanted you
  • 00:04:11.060 --> 00:04:13.020
  • to come on this program today,
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.290
  • not only to kinda update us
  • 00:04:14.290 --> 00:04:16.260
  • in how things are going there,
  • 00:04:16.260 --> 00:04:19.150
  • but you and I were talking.
  • 00:04:19.150 --> 00:04:21.210
  • And you were sharing
  • 00:04:21.210 --> 00:04:23.180
  • a powerful verse in scripture
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:26.060
  • about how that Moses
  • 00:04:27.160 --> 00:04:30.160
  • was used of God
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:32.000
  • and that he speaks
  • 00:04:32.000 --> 00:04:33.190
  • prophetically
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:34.150
  • what God told Moses
  • 00:04:34.150 --> 00:04:35.280
  • to our generation today.
  • 00:04:35.280 --> 00:04:38.020
  • And I wanted to invite you
  • 00:04:38.020 --> 00:04:39.000
  • to come on and share
  • 00:04:39.000 --> 00:04:40.120
  • the insights that God
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:42.090
  • has given you about the spirit
  • 00:04:42.090 --> 00:04:44.090
  • that Moses had
  • 00:04:44.090 --> 00:04:46.000
  • and how it relates
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:46.210
  • to our lives today.
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:48.080
  • Because I thought
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:48.200
  • it was a profound
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:50.010
  • and powerful teaching.
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:51.140
  • So I want you
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:51.290
  • to just take a moment,
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:53.050
  • and open up the scriptures,
  • 00:04:53.050 --> 00:04:54.240
  • and talk to us
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:55.100
  • - Alright, well, thank you.
  • 00:04:56.200 --> 00:04:58.060
  • So we're in the 71st year
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:05:00.130
  • of Israel's independence.
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.010
  • Israel started in 1948,
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:04.290
  • exactly 71 years ago.
  • 00:05:04.290 --> 00:05:07.110
  • So the number 71 in the Bible
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:10.240
  • is a significant one,
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:12.260
  • certainly from
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:13.110
  • a Jewish perspective.
  • 00:05:13.110 --> 00:05:14.210
  • The first time that number 71
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:16.260
  • appears in the Bible
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.100
  • is when the Israelites
  • 00:05:18.100 --> 00:05:20.020
  • are in the desert.
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:21.210
  • And so it says that
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:23.090
  • they're preparing
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:24.220
  • for the revelation.
  • 00:05:24.220 --> 00:05:26.050
  • God is about to reveal Himself
  • 00:05:26.050 --> 00:05:27.260
  • to the Israelites.
  • 00:05:27.260 --> 00:05:28.250
  • To the Jewish people.
  • 00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:30.120
  • And how do they prepare?
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:31.180
  • So it says in Numbers 11 -
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:34.210
  • and its verses 16-17.
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.040
  • God says to Moses that
  • 00:05:36.040 --> 00:05:38.190
  • you need to, "Gather for Me
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:39.270
  • seventy of Israel's elders
  • 00:05:39.270 --> 00:05:41.240
  • of whom you have experienced
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:43.150
  • as elders and officers
  • 00:05:43.150 --> 00:05:44.120
  • of the people.
  • 00:05:44.120 --> 00:05:44.290
  • Bring them to
  • 00:05:44.290 --> 00:05:45.110
  • the tent of meeting,
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:46.240
  • and let them take their place
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:48.090
  • there with you."
  • 00:05:48.090 --> 00:05:49.170
  • And then God says,
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:50.110
  • "I will come down
  • 00:05:50.110 --> 00:05:51.100
  • and speak with you there,
  • 00:05:51.100 --> 00:05:52.140
  • and I will draw upon the spirit
  • 00:05:52.140 --> 00:05:55.080
  • that is on you
  • 00:05:55.080 --> 00:05:56.190
  • and put it upon them,
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:05:58.240
  • and they shall bear the burden
  • 00:05:58.240 --> 00:06:00.080
  • of the people with you,
  • 00:06:00.080 --> 00:06:01.080
  • and you shall not bear it alone.
  • 00:06:01.080 --> 00:06:03.200
  • And it goes on in this chapter
  • 00:06:03.200 --> 00:06:05.160
  • in Numbers to talk about
  • 00:06:05.160 --> 00:06:06.220
  • the 71, and the group
  • 00:06:06.220 --> 00:06:09.100
  • of 71 elders
  • 00:06:09.100 --> 00:06:10.170
  • becomes the basis
  • 00:06:10.170 --> 00:06:12.110
  • for revelation.
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:15.020
  • And, in fact, 71 becomes
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:19.150
  • the number of the Jewish court.
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:21.230
  • Throughout the times
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:22.080
  • of the temple,
  • 00:06:22.080 --> 00:06:23.070
  • we had what's known
  • 00:06:23.070 --> 00:06:23.290
  • as the Sanhedrin.
  • 00:06:23.290 --> 00:06:26.160
  • The Sanhedrin had
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:26.280
  • exactly 71 members.
  • 00:06:26.280 --> 00:06:28.220
  • - Wow.
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:29.080
  • - Because of -
  • 00:06:29.080 --> 00:06:29.240
  • 71 is the number
  • 00:06:29.240 --> 00:06:31.020
  • of God's government.
  • 00:06:31.020 --> 00:06:32.150
  • Seventy-one is
  • 00:06:32.150 --> 00:06:33.010
  • a number of revelation.
  • 00:06:33.010 --> 00:06:34.160
  • And so if you look
  • 00:06:34.160 --> 00:06:35.070
  • carefully, though,
  • 00:06:35.070 --> 00:06:36.180
  • what it says is -
  • 00:06:36.180 --> 00:06:37.200
  • a lotta people assume
  • 00:06:37.200 --> 00:06:38.270
  • it means that God's spirit
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:40.260
  • came down and that spirit
  • 00:06:40.260 --> 00:06:43.030
  • was spread upon the 71.
  • 00:06:43.030 --> 00:06:45.200
  • But if you look carefully,
  • 00:06:45.200 --> 00:06:46.230
  • it's not actually what it says.
  • 00:06:46.230 --> 00:06:49.040
  • It says this: "I will draw
  • 00:06:49.040 --> 00:06:50.260
  • upon the spirit
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:51.240
  • that is upon you..."
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:52.220
  • Can I read that in Hebrew?
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:53.210
  • - Yes.
  • 00:06:53.210 --> 00:06:54.230
  • - It says [speaking in Hebrew].
  • 00:06:54.230 --> 00:06:57.070
  • Right?
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:57.200
  • God says [speaking in Hebrew].
  • 00:06:58.210 --> 00:07:01.230
  • "I will take that spirit
  • 00:07:01.230 --> 00:07:03.210
  • that is on you
  • 00:07:03.210 --> 00:07:04.120
  • and put it on them";
  • 00:07:04.120 --> 00:07:05.140
  • it's the spirit of Moses.
  • 00:07:05.140 --> 00:07:07.130
  • - The spirit of Moses.
  • 00:07:07.130 --> 00:07:08.230
  • And God said,
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:09.100
  • "I'll put it on the 70 elders."
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:12.150
  • I've often thought
  • 00:07:12.150 --> 00:07:13.070
  • of that verse.
  • 00:07:13.070 --> 00:07:14.240
  • As a leader, it challenges me.
  • 00:07:14.240 --> 00:07:16.240
  • Could God trust my spirit?
  • 00:07:16.240 --> 00:07:19.100
  • Could He take my spirit
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:21.050
  • and put it on my congregation?
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:23.270
  • Because, you know,
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:24.270
  • if I don't have the right spirit
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:26.160
  • - if I have a spirit
  • 00:07:26.160 --> 00:07:27.210
  • that's unforgiving,
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:28.230
  • or angry, or bitter,
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:29.280
  • or judgmental, or ugly,
  • 00:07:29.280 --> 00:07:32.140
  • that spirit can be transferred.
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:34.120
  • Spirits make men.
  • 00:07:34.120 --> 00:07:35.290
  • It's not talent.
  • 00:07:35.290 --> 00:07:37.040
  • It's not even education.
  • 00:07:37.040 --> 00:07:40.020
  • The thing that God looks for
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:41.290
  • is the right spirit.
  • 00:07:41.290 --> 00:07:43.230
  • That when -
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:44.120
  • like David cried,
  • 00:07:44.120 --> 00:07:45.180
  • "Create in me a clean heart..."
  • 00:07:45.180 --> 00:07:47.160
  • And what else?
  • 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:48.080
  • "...a right spirit..."
  • 00:07:48.080 --> 00:07:49.290
  • Because a spirit
  • 00:07:49.290 --> 00:07:51.200
  • is what qualifies us.
  • 00:07:51.200 --> 00:07:53.050
  • If it's a humble spirit.
  • 00:07:53.050 --> 00:07:54.260
  • If it's a loving spirit.
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:56.260
  • If it's a spirit
  • 00:07:56.260 --> 00:07:57.200
  • that God can take and use.
  • 00:07:57.200 --> 00:07:59.190
  • So many people can't be
  • 00:07:59.190 --> 00:08:01.030
  • used of God because
  • 00:08:01.030 --> 00:08:02.190
  • they don't have
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:03.110
  • the right spirit.
  • 00:08:03.110 --> 00:08:04.170
  • - But I love what you said.
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:05.240
  • You said it wasn't just
  • 00:08:05.240 --> 00:08:07.110
  • the spirit of God
  • 00:08:07.110 --> 00:08:09.080
  • that He was gonna transfer.
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:10.150
  • That's not what it said.
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:11.180
  • He said I wanna transfer
  • 00:08:11.180 --> 00:08:13.110
  • your spirit, Moses,
  • 00:08:13.110 --> 00:08:15.010
  • to the 70 elders.
  • 00:08:15.010 --> 00:08:17.290
  • What is the spirit of Moses?
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:19.180
  • - Yeah, so, you know,
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:21.000
  • Abraham had a certain spirit.
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:22.160
  • Abraham was a visionary.
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:25.040
  • David had a certain spirit.
  • 00:08:25.040 --> 00:08:26.130
  • David was a military leader,
  • 00:08:26.130 --> 00:08:29.010
  • and a poet, and a psalmist.
  • 00:08:29.010 --> 00:08:31.290
  • What was the spirit of Moses?
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.260
  • So it says clearly
  • 00:08:33.260 --> 00:08:36.210
  • in Numbers 12:3.
  • 00:08:36.210 --> 00:08:38.200
  • "Now Moses was
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:40.180
  • a very humble man,
  • 00:08:40.180 --> 00:08:41.170
  • more so than any man on earth."
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:44.090
  • That's the spirit of Moses.
  • 00:08:44.090 --> 00:08:45.140
  • Humility.
  • 00:08:45.140 --> 00:08:46.240
  • And that's important because
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:49.130
  • God only trusts Moses,
  • 00:08:49.130 --> 00:08:51.070
  • the most humble of men,
  • 00:08:51.070 --> 00:08:52.170
  • with His message.
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:55.000
  • Because anybody else
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:56.130
  • would have interpreted
  • 00:08:56.130 --> 00:08:57.040
  • God's message and translated it
  • 00:08:57.090 --> 00:09:00.110
  • according to his own
  • 00:09:00.110 --> 00:09:01.150
  • interpretation.
  • 00:09:01.150 --> 00:09:03.060
  • But Moses had none of that ego
  • 00:09:03.260 --> 00:09:06.260
  • that everybody else has.
  • 00:09:06.260 --> 00:09:08.080
  • Moses was the most humble
  • 00:09:08.080 --> 00:09:09.040
  • of all men.
  • 00:09:09.040 --> 00:09:10.270
  • And he speaks to God word -
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:12.150
  • mouth to mouth, right?
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:14.030
  • That's what it says.
  • 00:09:14.030 --> 00:09:15.040
  • Because of His humility,
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:16.110
  • he's trusted with revelation.
  • 00:09:16.260 --> 00:09:19.260
  • - The meekest, the humblest -
  • 00:09:19.260 --> 00:09:21.220
  • the scripture said -
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:22.220
  • man at that time.
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:24.160
  • I think of King Saul and,
  • 00:09:24.160 --> 00:09:27.130
  • you know, when the prophet
  • 00:09:27.130 --> 00:09:28.140
  • came to Him.
  • 00:09:28.140 --> 00:09:30.080
  • And He said this statement.
  • 00:09:30.080 --> 00:09:31.190
  • He said - in the Book of Samuel,
  • 00:09:31.190 --> 00:09:33.270
  • he said, "When you were little
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:36.080
  • in your own eyes,
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:38.100
  • you had great value to God,
  • 00:09:38.100 --> 00:09:40.290
  • but because you have
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:42.290
  • become high, because
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.180
  • you have become proud,
  • 00:09:44.180 --> 00:09:46.150
  • because you thought
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:47.120
  • that you could offer
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:48.150
  • the sacrifice and step into
  • 00:09:48.150 --> 00:09:50.130
  • the place of the priest,"
  • 00:09:50.130 --> 00:09:53.000
  • God said, "The kingdom
  • 00:09:53.000 --> 00:09:54.040
  • will be taken",
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:55.130
  • because his spirit was wrong.
  • 00:09:55.130 --> 00:09:58.090
  • I mean, physically
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:09:59.290
  • he stood a head and shoulders
  • 00:09:59.290 --> 00:10:01.080
  • above all the other men
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:02.100
  • in Israel.
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:02.260
  • He had the look of a leader,
  • 00:10:02.260 --> 00:10:04.290
  • but the spirit
  • 00:10:04.290 --> 00:10:05.240
  • is what God looks at.
  • 00:10:05.240 --> 00:10:07.220
  • So many times,
  • 00:10:07.220 --> 00:10:08.170
  • we think the thing
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:09.260
  • that qualifies us is
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:12.230
  • some kind of talent,
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:14.180
  • or gifting, or -
  • 00:10:14.180 --> 00:10:15.270
  • but God looks for
  • 00:10:15.270 --> 00:10:16.230
  • the right spirit.
  • 00:10:16.230 --> 00:10:18.210
  • When you were little
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:19.170
  • in your own eyes.
  • 00:10:19.170 --> 00:10:20.130
  • I've often thought of that.
  • 00:10:20.130 --> 00:10:21.150
  • You know, that -
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:22.010
  • how many times has God
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:23.100
  • taken people
  • 00:10:23.100 --> 00:10:24.260
  • who came from nowhere,
  • 00:10:24.260 --> 00:10:26.130
  • and raised them up,
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:27.210
  • and blessed them,
  • 00:10:27.210 --> 00:10:29.080
  • and prospered them
  • 00:10:29.080 --> 00:10:30.200
  • in miraculous ways,
  • 00:10:30.200 --> 00:10:32.180
  • and it changed them.
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:34.180
  • He gives grace to the humble.
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:36.270
  • He gives access to the humble.
  • 00:10:36.270 --> 00:10:39.140
  • But the proud
  • 00:10:39.140 --> 00:10:40.120
  • He holds at arm's length.
  • 00:10:40.120 --> 00:10:42.250
  • - And I love how you bring
  • 00:10:42.250 --> 00:10:43.210
  • examples from King Saul
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:45.000
  • from the Hebrew Bible.
  • 00:10:45.000 --> 00:10:46.120
  • Because there's so much
  • 00:10:46.120 --> 00:10:47.200
  • of our Bible that
  • 00:10:47.200 --> 00:10:48.240
  • we have in common.
  • 00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:49.180
  • And I think that a lot of -
  • 00:10:49.180 --> 00:10:50.190
  • when it comes
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:51.020
  • to Jewish/Christian dialog,
  • 00:10:51.020 --> 00:10:52.260
  • we get stuck on
  • 00:10:52.260 --> 00:10:53.270
  • the fact that, well,
  • 00:10:53.270 --> 00:10:55.090
  • the Jews have the Hebrew Bible,
  • 00:10:55.090 --> 00:10:56.260
  • the Old Testament,
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:57.280
  • and the Christians have
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:10:58.130
  • the New Testament.
  • 00:10:58.130 --> 00:10:59.100
  • And, therefore, we don't have
  • 00:10:59.100 --> 00:11:00.050
  • anything in common.
  • 00:11:00.050 --> 00:11:01.030
  • - Right.
  • 00:11:01.030 --> 00:11:02.020
  • - But it's not true.
  • 00:11:02.020 --> 00:11:03.140
  • We have a lot in common.
  • 00:11:03.140 --> 00:11:04.220
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:11:04.220 --> 00:11:06.120
  • Our roots.
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:07.040
  • Everything I see
  • 00:11:07.040 --> 00:11:08.060
  • in the Old Testament,
  • 00:11:08.060 --> 00:11:09.100
  • for me, as a Christian,
  • 00:11:09.100 --> 00:11:10.290
  • I need to find everything
  • 00:11:10.290 --> 00:11:12.200
  • in the New Testament,
  • 00:11:12.200 --> 00:11:13.180
  • I need to see the shadow
  • 00:11:13.180 --> 00:11:14.220
  • in the Old Testament.
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:16.120
  • And so I do believe
  • 00:11:16.120 --> 00:11:18.020
  • that this humble spirit
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:20.120
  • is what's missing
  • 00:11:20.120 --> 00:11:22.080
  • in many Christians' lives
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:25.100
  • that are watching this program.
  • 00:11:25.100 --> 00:11:27.000
  • That we need to get back
  • 00:11:27.000 --> 00:11:29.110
  • to a place of servitude.
  • 00:11:29.110 --> 00:11:32.110
  • You know, I think about
  • 00:11:32.110 --> 00:11:33.270
  • Elijah and Elisha.
  • 00:11:34.020 --> 00:11:37.020
  • And the same story, basically,
  • 00:11:37.020 --> 00:11:38.290
  • is told where, Elisha said,
  • 00:11:38.290 --> 00:11:41.090
  • "I want a double portion
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:42.130
  • to Elijah."
  • 00:11:42.130 --> 00:11:44.080
  • He didn't say
  • 00:11:44.080 --> 00:11:44.200
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:11:44.200 --> 00:11:45.190
  • I want it of your spirit.
  • 00:11:45.190 --> 00:11:48.010
  • Now we know -
  • 00:11:48.010 --> 00:11:49.030
  • we believe the spirit of God,
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:50.180
  • of course, is the One
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:51.070
  • who anoints.
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:52.090
  • But He asked for
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:54.030
  • a double portion
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:55.040
  • of that spirit.
  • 00:11:55.040 --> 00:11:56.140
  • Well, what kinda spirit was that
  • 00:11:56.140 --> 00:11:58.290
  • that He was referring to?
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:00.120
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:01.010
  • That spirit of humility.
  • 00:12:01.010 --> 00:12:02.190
  • And it's not just for, you know
  • 00:12:02.190 --> 00:12:04.170
  • - you're talking to
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:05.190
  • your Christian viewers
  • 00:12:05.190 --> 00:12:07.190
  • who are watching this program.
  • 00:12:07.190 --> 00:12:09.110
  • But I believe
  • 00:12:09.110 --> 00:12:10.140
  • that the number 71,
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:12.040
  • the spirit of humility,
  • 00:12:12.040 --> 00:12:13.130
  • is also super-relevant
  • 00:12:13.130 --> 00:12:15.200
  • when it comes to
  • 00:12:15.200 --> 00:12:16.260
  • God's government
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:17.280
  • and the governmental leadership.
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:19.280
  • We need to have humility,
  • 00:12:19.280 --> 00:12:21.220
  • so that way we have an impact
  • 00:12:21.220 --> 00:12:24.170
  • and an influence
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:25.110
  • on our elected officials.
  • 00:12:25.110 --> 00:12:27.170
  • On our leaders.
  • 00:12:27.170 --> 00:12:28.280
  • So that they can run
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:30.000
  • the government
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:30.170
  • according to humility.
  • 00:12:30.170 --> 00:12:31.240
  • Because that's what
  • 00:12:31.240 --> 00:12:33.010
  • was required by
  • 00:12:33.010 --> 00:12:33.150
  • God in Numbers.
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:34.240
  • Moses gathered 71 elders.
  • 00:12:34.240 --> 00:12:37.040
  • We're in the 71st year.
  • 00:12:37.040 --> 00:12:38.230
  • And He didn't want the smartest.
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:40.020
  • He didn't take an I.Q. test
  • 00:12:40.020 --> 00:12:41.110
  • out of all of the Israelites
  • 00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:43.070
  • and ask for the smartest
  • 00:12:43.070 --> 00:12:44.000
  • or the most charismatic.
  • 00:12:44.000 --> 00:12:45.200
  • He wanted the most humble.
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:47.180
  • He wanted that
  • 00:12:47.180 --> 00:12:48.020
  • spirit of humility
  • 00:12:48.020 --> 00:12:49.040
  • to form that first
  • 00:12:49.040 --> 00:12:50.010
  • form of government.
  • 00:12:50.010 --> 00:12:51.140
  • And that's really
  • 00:12:51.140 --> 00:12:52.070
  • what we need today.
  • 00:12:52.070 --> 00:12:52.290
  • - So good.
  • 00:12:52.290 --> 00:12:53.290
  • You know, I think about
  • 00:12:53.290 --> 00:12:55.100
  • the story of Moses
  • 00:12:55.100 --> 00:12:56.130
  • and when God called him.
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:12:58.200
  • You know, through
  • 00:12:58.200 --> 00:13:00.040
  • the burning bush.
  • 00:13:00.040 --> 00:13:01.060
  • And He asked him,
  • 00:13:01.060 --> 00:13:02.150
  • "What is in your hand?"
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:04.090
  • Because He said,
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:04.280
  • "How will I convince Pharaoh?"
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:07.000
  • And God said,
  • 00:13:07.000 --> 00:13:07.180
  • "What is in your hand?"
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:09.130
  • And all He had was that staff -
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:10.210
  • that stick.
  • 00:13:10.210 --> 00:13:13.000
  • And it's a ordinary,
  • 00:13:13.000 --> 00:13:14.250
  • common stick.
  • 00:13:14.250 --> 00:13:16.270
  • And God said, throw it down.
  • 00:13:16.270 --> 00:13:18.260
  • And we know that, you know,
  • 00:13:18.260 --> 00:13:20.100
  • it became a serpent.
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:22.150
  • It became alive.
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:23.190
  • It became a supernatural thing.
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:25.020
  • That stick.
  • 00:13:25.020 --> 00:13:26.010
  • That ordinary stick
  • 00:13:26.010 --> 00:13:27.270
  • would part the Red Sea.
  • 00:13:27.270 --> 00:13:29.240
  • That stick would -
  • 00:13:29.240 --> 00:13:31.080
  • He would hold it up,
  • 00:13:31.080 --> 00:13:32.060
  • and the plagues would come
  • 00:13:32.060 --> 00:13:33.200
  • and defeat Pharaoh ultimately.
  • 00:13:33.210 --> 00:13:36.210
  • And one time,
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:37.080
  • I was reading that story,
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:38.110
  • and I thought, you know,
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:39.170
  • then God told him
  • 00:13:39.170 --> 00:13:40.060
  • to pick it back up.
  • 00:13:40.060 --> 00:13:42.020
  • And it would go from
  • 00:13:42.020 --> 00:13:43.120
  • a supernatural thing -
  • 00:13:43.120 --> 00:13:44.230
  • a living serpent
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:45.270
  • that swallowed up
  • 00:13:45.270 --> 00:13:47.010
  • the magicians' rods -
  • 00:13:47.010 --> 00:13:49.240
  • back to a simple stick.
  • 00:13:49.240 --> 00:13:51.130
  • And the Lord seemed
  • 00:13:51.130 --> 00:13:52.140
  • to impress me that
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:53.270
  • the greatest part of that
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:56.100
  • miracle is not that God
  • 00:13:56.100 --> 00:13:57.050
  • could take an ordinary,
  • 00:13:57.050 --> 00:13:58.130
  • average stick and use it
  • 00:13:58.130 --> 00:14:01.080
  • in a supernatural way,
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:03.120
  • but can He, after
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:05.010
  • He's blessed you
  • 00:14:05.010 --> 00:14:06.030
  • in a miraculous way --
  • 00:14:06.030 --> 00:14:08.180
  • the greatest miracle
  • 00:14:08.180 --> 00:14:09.170
  • is when he picked it up,
  • 00:14:09.170 --> 00:14:11.010
  • it went back to being a stick.
  • 00:14:11.010 --> 00:14:13.260
  • And the point that I'm making
  • 00:14:13.260 --> 00:14:15.190
  • is so many people -
  • 00:14:15.190 --> 00:14:16.250
  • God can do great things
  • 00:14:16.250 --> 00:14:17.280
  • in their life,
  • 00:14:17.280 --> 00:14:19.100
  • and it changes who they are.
  • 00:14:19.100 --> 00:14:21.080
  • They look down on people.
  • 00:14:21.080 --> 00:14:22.150
  • They walk in
  • 00:14:22.150 --> 00:14:23.210
  • pride and arrogance.
  • 00:14:23.210 --> 00:14:25.040
  • But really, the question is,
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:26.260
  • can we go back to being -
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:28.190
  • can you be used in
  • 00:14:28.190 --> 00:14:29.080
  • an extraordinary way,
  • 00:14:29.080 --> 00:14:31.010
  • and go back to being ordinary
  • 00:14:31.010 --> 00:14:32.200
  • after God does it,
  • 00:14:32.200 --> 00:14:33.250
  • and give Him the glory?
  • 00:14:33.250 --> 00:14:35.030
  • - Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
  • 00:14:35.030 --> 00:14:36.050
  • - I think, so many times,
  • 00:14:36.050 --> 00:14:37.110
  • God would do more great things
  • 00:14:37.140 --> 00:14:40.140
  • in our lives if we would allow -
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:44.010
  • after He's blessed us,
  • 00:14:44.010 --> 00:14:46.030
  • to go back to being humble.
  • 00:14:46.030 --> 00:14:48.060
  • Just a stick.
  • 00:14:48.060 --> 00:14:48.280
  • I'm just a stick.
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:50.080
  • I'm nothing special.
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:51.140
  • I'm nothing ordinary.
  • 00:14:51.140 --> 00:14:52.260
  • God uses - and when
  • 00:14:52.260 --> 00:14:54.070
  • we get to thinking
  • 00:14:54.070 --> 00:14:55.140
  • that it's our talent,
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:57.000
  • and our ability,
  • 00:14:57.000 --> 00:14:58.170
  • and our brilliance --
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:15:00.080
  • - Right.
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:00.230
  • - The same is true
  • 00:15:00.230 --> 00:15:01.230
  • for a nation.
  • 00:15:01.230 --> 00:15:02.250
  • The same is true
  • 00:15:02.250 --> 00:15:03.160
  • for a government.
  • 00:15:03.160 --> 00:15:05.120
  • That the more God blesses us,
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:07.050
  • the more there is
  • 00:15:07.050 --> 00:15:08.150
  • to depend on us --
  • 00:15:08.150 --> 00:15:09.070
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:15:09.070 --> 00:15:09.270
  • - -- if we're not careful.
  • 00:15:09.270 --> 00:15:10.190
  • And we don't go back to being --
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:13.000
  • - what did God say
  • 00:15:13.000 --> 00:15:13.220
  • put in the Ark of the Covenant?
  • 00:15:13.220 --> 00:15:15.210
  • He said, "I want three things:
  • 00:15:15.210 --> 00:15:17.060
  • I want the law.
  • 00:15:17.060 --> 00:15:18.270
  • I want some manna
  • 00:15:18.270 --> 00:15:20.030
  • and a pot to remember
  • 00:15:20.030 --> 00:15:21.180
  • how I fed you
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:22.120
  • in the wilderness."
  • 00:15:22.120 --> 00:15:23.260
  • And then He said,
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:24.110
  • I want that stick
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.290
  • - or the rod that budded -
  • 00:15:26.000 --> 00:15:29.000
  • that was a dead stick
  • 00:15:29.000 --> 00:15:30.050
  • that came alive,"
  • 00:15:30.050 --> 00:15:31.010
  • Because God says,
  • 00:15:31.010 --> 00:15:32.110
  • "I like something
  • 00:15:32.110 --> 00:15:33.110
  • about that humility."
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:35.230
  • Just a stick.
  • 00:15:35.230 --> 00:15:36.210
  • I don't need
  • 00:15:36.210 --> 00:15:39.050
  • super-talented people,
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:40.090
  • I guess is what I'm trying
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:41.030
  • to say to you.
  • 00:15:41.030 --> 00:15:42.030
  • Some of you keep
  • 00:15:42.030 --> 00:15:42.210
  • disqualifying yourself.
  • 00:15:42.210 --> 00:15:44.090
  • You keep saying,
  • 00:15:44.090 --> 00:15:44.270
  • if I was as gifted
  • 00:15:44.270 --> 00:15:45.260
  • as this person,
  • 00:15:45.260 --> 00:15:46.250
  • or talented as that person,
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:48.130
  • or as rich, or wealthy,
  • 00:15:48.130 --> 00:15:50.070
  • or influential as that person.
  • 00:15:50.070 --> 00:15:52.040
  • All God needs is a stick.
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:54.260
  • All God needs is a stick.
  • 00:15:54.260 --> 00:15:56.120
  • Somebody who'll say -
  • 00:15:56.120 --> 00:15:57.240
  • God's saying
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:15:58.130
  • what's in your hand?
  • 00:15:58.130 --> 00:15:59.180
  • He didn't say to Moses
  • 00:15:59.180 --> 00:16:00.240
  • "what's in your mouth?"
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:01.210
  • Because the miracle wasn't
  • 00:16:01.210 --> 00:16:03.010
  • dependent on his ability
  • 00:16:03.010 --> 00:16:04.090
  • to communicate.
  • 00:16:04.090 --> 00:16:04.280
  • - That's right.
  • 00:16:04.280 --> 00:16:05.150
  • - "He didn't say,
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:06.000
  • "what's in your head?"
  • 00:16:06.000 --> 00:16:07.050
  • Because the miracle
  • 00:16:07.050 --> 00:16:08.010
  • was not dependent
  • 00:16:08.010 --> 00:16:08.290
  • upon His intellect.
  • 00:16:08.290 --> 00:16:10.220
  • The miracle was dependent
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:11.210
  • upon Him taking what He had
  • 00:16:11.280 --> 00:16:14.280
  • and putting it in God's hands.
  • 00:16:14.280 --> 00:16:17.020
  • And when He relinquished
  • 00:16:17.020 --> 00:16:18.030
  • what He had to God,
  • 00:16:18.030 --> 00:16:19.160
  • God blessed it supernaturally.
  • 00:16:19.160 --> 00:16:21.210
  • And then after He used it,
  • 00:16:21.210 --> 00:16:23.150
  • when He picked it back up,
  • 00:16:23.150 --> 00:16:24.210
  • it went back to being
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:25.160
  • a simple, ordinary stick.
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:27.240
  • Don't lose your humility.
  • 00:16:27.240 --> 00:16:30.090
  • Don't lose
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:31.180
  • the dependency upon God.
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:34.090
  • The more He blesses you,
  • 00:16:34.090 --> 00:16:35.150
  • businessperson,
  • 00:16:35.150 --> 00:16:36.220
  • the more He prospers you,
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:38.080
  • the more it oughtta -
  • 00:16:38.080 --> 00:16:39.070
  • it ought not to make you more
  • 00:16:39.070 --> 00:16:40.160
  • independent from God.
  • 00:16:40.160 --> 00:16:42.070
  • It oughtta make you
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:42.250
  • pray even more.
  • 00:16:42.250 --> 00:16:44.040
  • It oughtta make you
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:44.190
  • fall on your face even more,
  • 00:16:44.190 --> 00:16:46.120
  • and give God the glory,
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:47.270
  • and keep that humble spirit.
  • 00:16:47.270 --> 00:16:50.000
  • - That is powerful.
  • 00:16:50.000 --> 00:16:51.260
  • And we're talking
  • 00:16:51.260 --> 00:16:52.190
  • a lot about humility.
  • 00:16:52.190 --> 00:16:54.140
  • About how when Moses
  • 00:16:54.140 --> 00:16:57.030
  • needed that humility
  • 00:16:57.030 --> 00:16:58.130
  • in order for God
  • 00:16:58.130 --> 00:16:59.050
  • to give Him the law.
  • 00:16:59.050 --> 00:17:01.170
  • And only Moses was trusted
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:02.250
  • with that transmission.
  • 00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:03.280
  • With that revelation.
  • 00:17:03.280 --> 00:17:05.140
  • And we have a teaching in -
  • 00:17:05.140 --> 00:17:07.110
  • there's a question.
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:07.270
  • You know, we always ask
  • 00:17:07.270 --> 00:17:08.190
  • a lotta questions.
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:09.220
  • Whenever we're studying
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:10.210
  • the Bible, we ask
  • 00:17:10.210 --> 00:17:11.120
  • a lotta questions.
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:12.270
  • And one of the most
  • 00:17:12.270 --> 00:17:13.170
  • basic questions,
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:14.180
  • especially from, literally,
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:16.180
  • this vantage point is -
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:18.230
  • you know, Pastor,
  • 00:17:18.230 --> 00:17:19.090
  • if you were God - right?
  • 00:17:19.090 --> 00:17:20.270
  • And you were about to...
  • 00:17:20.270 --> 00:17:21.160
  • - Thank God I'm not.
  • 00:17:21.160 --> 00:17:22.130
  • [laughter]
  • 00:17:22.130 --> 00:17:23.270
  • - And you were about to
  • 00:17:23.270 --> 00:17:24.200
  • reveal your word
  • 00:17:24.200 --> 00:17:25.290
  • for all mankind forever,
  • 00:17:25.290 --> 00:17:27.200
  • and you wanted to do it
  • 00:17:27.200 --> 00:17:28.250
  • in a special location,
  • 00:17:28.250 --> 00:17:31.180
  • and you wanted to do it
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:32.260
  • on a mountaintop, right?
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:35.010
  • So where would you
  • 00:17:35.010 --> 00:17:35.250
  • give revelation?
  • 00:17:35.250 --> 00:17:37.190
  • Right?
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:39.100
  • There we got a mountaintop.
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:41.060
  • That would be the prime
  • 00:17:41.060 --> 00:17:42.090
  • location, right?
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:44.060
  • Mount Moriah.
  • 00:17:44.060 --> 00:17:45.040
  • The Temple Mount.
  • 00:17:45.040 --> 00:17:47.020
  • Yet God, in His infinite wisdom,
  • 00:17:47.020 --> 00:17:49.170
  • chose a different mountain.
  • 00:17:49.170 --> 00:17:51.070
  • He chose Mount Sinai.
  • 00:17:51.070 --> 00:17:52.240
  • So the Jewish -
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:54.210
  • you know, the rabbis
  • 00:17:54.210 --> 00:17:56.060
  • have bounced on -
  • 00:17:56.060 --> 00:17:57.080
  • jumped on this.
  • 00:17:57.080 --> 00:17:58.140
  • Mount Sinai?
  • 00:17:58.140 --> 00:17:59.270
  • Mount Sinai?
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:00.290
  • What about Mount Moriah?
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:02.200
  • Why did God reveal Himself
  • 00:18:02.200 --> 00:18:04.160
  • on Mount Sinai?
  • 00:18:04.160 --> 00:18:05.290
  • And there's a lotta answers
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:06.230
  • to that question.
  • 00:18:06.230 --> 00:18:08.130
  • If I were to ask
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:09.030
  • my eight-year-old son,
  • 00:18:09.030 --> 00:18:11.150
  • he would tell me -
  • 00:18:11.150 --> 00:18:12.050
  • well, here's what we learned in
  • 00:18:12.050 --> 00:18:13.030
  • fourth grade.
  • 00:18:13.030 --> 00:18:14.030
  • Right?
  • 00:18:14.030 --> 00:18:14.150
  • The fourth grade answer is
  • 00:18:14.150 --> 00:18:15.200
  • that there were a lotta
  • 00:18:15.200 --> 00:18:16.230
  • prominent mountains
  • 00:18:16.230 --> 00:18:17.110
  • in the wilderness.
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:18.290
  • Mount Sinai was the smallest
  • 00:18:18.290 --> 00:18:21.010
  • of all the mountains.
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:22.000
  • The most modest,
  • 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:23.100
  • and the most humble.
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.150
  • And God specifically
  • 00:18:24.150 --> 00:18:25.140
  • chose Mount Sinai -
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:27.200
  • exactly what
  • 00:18:27.200 --> 00:18:27.290
  • we're talking about.
  • 00:18:27.290 --> 00:18:28.280
  • He didn't wanna give it
  • 00:18:28.280 --> 00:18:29.200
  • on a Mount Everest
  • 00:18:29.200 --> 00:18:30.200
  • kinda mountain.
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:31.110
  • He wanted to give it
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:32.060
  • on a small, modest mountain.
  • 00:18:32.060 --> 00:18:33.220
  • Because for the Bible
  • 00:18:33.220 --> 00:18:35.190
  • to enter our hearts,
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:36.290
  • we need to be humble.
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:38.130
  • And the Bible goes
  • 00:18:38.130 --> 00:18:39.090
  • not to the tall.
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:40.040
  • It goes to the low point,
  • 00:18:40.040 --> 00:18:42.070
  • and it only enters our heart
  • 00:18:42.070 --> 00:18:43.250
  • when we're open to it.
  • 00:18:43.250 --> 00:18:45.030
  • When we're humble.
  • 00:18:45.030 --> 00:18:46.130
  • That's sort of like -
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:47.140
  • that's a famous answer.
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:49.130
  • That's an answer I learned
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:50.240
  • in elementary school --
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:52.160
  • - And, you know,
  • 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:53.150
  • even when you think about
  • 00:18:53.150 --> 00:18:55.020
  • God's chosen people
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:56.170
  • in this land
  • 00:18:56.170 --> 00:18:57.170
  • and the Jewish people,
  • 00:18:57.170 --> 00:18:59.200
  • God told 'em.
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:01.080
  • He told 'em.
  • 00:19:01.080 --> 00:19:01.270
  • He said, I didn't choose you
  • 00:19:01.270 --> 00:19:02.200
  • because you were
  • 00:19:02.200 --> 00:19:03.100
  • the greatest nation,
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:05.030
  • you were the strongest people,
  • 00:19:05.030 --> 00:19:06.250
  • you were the mightiest
  • 00:19:06.250 --> 00:19:07.220
  • in the earth,
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:08.250
  • I chose you because
  • 00:19:08.250 --> 00:19:09.260
  • you were small.
  • 00:19:09.260 --> 00:19:11.150
  • I chose you because without Me,
  • 00:19:11.150 --> 00:19:13.130
  • you couldn't live.
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:14.280
  • Without Me, you couldn't move.
  • 00:19:14.280 --> 00:19:16.190
  • Without Me, you couldn't
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:17.110
  • make it.
  • 00:19:17.110 --> 00:19:19.040
  • And there's something
  • 00:19:19.040 --> 00:19:20.080
  • about that humility
  • 00:19:20.080 --> 00:19:22.090
  • that God looks for.
  • 00:19:22.090 --> 00:19:23.140
  • Because, you know,
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:24.260
  • the spirit of man -
  • 00:19:24.260 --> 00:19:26.060
  • the Bible said that,
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:27.130
  • "The spirit of man
  • 00:19:27.130 --> 00:19:28.050
  • is the candle of the Lord..."
  • 00:19:28.050 --> 00:19:30.000
  • you know?
  • 00:19:30.000 --> 00:19:30.250
  • And in other words,
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:32.040
  • the way that He leads us
  • 00:19:32.040 --> 00:19:34.030
  • is He lights that candle inside.
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:36.190
  • And we need the spirit of God
  • 00:19:36.190 --> 00:19:38.270
  • leading us and guiding us.
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:40.250
  • The way that we show
  • 00:19:40.250 --> 00:19:41.260
  • humility is we're not
  • 00:19:41.260 --> 00:19:44.040
  • self-dependent completely.
  • 00:19:44.040 --> 00:19:46.010
  • That we - to me,
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:47.200
  • prayer is the acknowledgement.
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:50.150
  • I need you.
  • 00:19:50.150 --> 00:19:52.070
  • I need God.
  • 00:19:52.070 --> 00:19:53.250
  • I'm 56 years old,
  • 00:19:53.250 --> 00:19:55.080
  • and I need Him more
  • 00:19:55.080 --> 00:19:55.260
  • than I've ever needed Him
  • 00:19:55.260 --> 00:19:56.250
  • in my life.
  • 00:19:56.250 --> 00:19:58.140
  • And I remembered
  • 00:19:58.140 --> 00:20:00.130
  • how God called me.
  • 00:20:00.130 --> 00:20:02.240
  • How that I'm the least
  • 00:20:02.280 --> 00:20:05.280
  • that should be sitting
  • 00:20:05.280 --> 00:20:06.230
  • here with you,
  • 00:20:06.230 --> 00:20:08.000
  • and setting here
  • 00:20:08.000 --> 00:20:08.240
  • in this beautiful studio
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:10.160
  • that TBN has been so kind
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:12.000
  • to allow us to use.
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:14.250
  • I shouldn't be on television.
  • 00:20:14.250 --> 00:20:16.210
  • I shouldn't -
  • 00:20:16.210 --> 00:20:17.110
  • I'm not as qualified as some.
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:19.270
  • I'm not as gifted
  • 00:20:19.270 --> 00:20:20.200
  • or talented as some.
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:23.070
  • But one thing that I do believe
  • 00:20:23.070 --> 00:20:25.230
  • that God has taught me
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:27.210
  • is that I need -
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:29.260
  • I need Him.
  • 00:20:29.260 --> 00:20:32.010
  • I don't ever wanna
  • 00:20:32.010 --> 00:20:32.170
  • get self-reliant.
  • 00:20:32.170 --> 00:20:34.000
  • I don't ever wanna not pray.
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:37.090
  • Not seek the counsel
  • 00:20:37.090 --> 00:20:39.010
  • of the Lord.
  • 00:20:39.010 --> 00:20:40.010
  • So many times - you know,
  • 00:20:40.010 --> 00:20:40.280
  • the greatest mistake
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:42.070
  • Joshua ever made
  • 00:20:42.070 --> 00:20:43.140
  • manifest through pride,
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:44.180
  • in my opinion.
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:45.270
  • When the Bible said that -
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:47.050
  • you know, the Gibeonites came,
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:49.050
  • and they wanted to join
  • 00:20:49.050 --> 00:20:50.000
  • themselves to Israel.
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:52.090
  • And they deceived Joshua
  • 00:20:52.170 --> 00:20:55.170
  • and the people of Israel.
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:57.020
  • And the Bible said -
  • 00:20:57.020 --> 00:20:57.250
  • there's this little line.
  • 00:20:57.250 --> 00:20:59.110
  • And they consulted not the Lord.
  • 00:20:59.110 --> 00:21:02.110
  • In other words, pride says
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:03.250
  • I don't have to pray about it.
  • 00:21:03.250 --> 00:21:05.140
  • I don't have to
  • 00:21:05.140 --> 00:21:06.000
  • seek God's wisdom.
  • 00:21:06.000 --> 00:21:07.120
  • I don't have to ask God
  • 00:21:07.120 --> 00:21:08.290
  • for help and guidance.
  • 00:21:08.290 --> 00:21:10.110
  • I'm smart.
  • 00:21:10.110 --> 00:21:11.030
  • I'm intelligent.
  • 00:21:11.030 --> 00:21:12.090
  • And that is the manifestation
  • 00:21:12.090 --> 00:21:14.200
  • of arrogance and pride, I think,
  • 00:21:14.200 --> 00:21:16.090
  • that robs us of
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:18.160
  • that candle of the Lord
  • 00:21:18.160 --> 00:21:19.050
  • that could lead us
  • 00:21:19.050 --> 00:21:20.210
  • in the direction
  • 00:21:20.210 --> 00:21:21.240
  • that He has for us
  • 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:22.230
  • and for our families.
  • 00:21:22.230 --> 00:21:23.130
  • What do you think about that?
  • 00:21:23.130 --> 00:21:25.020
  • - I think that, first of all,
  • 00:21:25.020 --> 00:21:27.290
  • We have a teaching
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:29.120
  • in the Jewish tradition
  • 00:21:29.120 --> 00:21:30.270
  • that we believe
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:33.250
  • that Jerusalem and Israel
  • 00:21:33.250 --> 00:21:36.010
  • is the land that
  • 00:21:36.010 --> 00:21:37.000
  • God gave to the Jewish people.
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:39.060
  • It's the one piece of land
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:40.130
  • in the whole world.
  • 00:21:40.130 --> 00:21:41.040
  • God's not a real estate agent.
  • 00:21:41.040 --> 00:21:42.220
  • But for whatever reason,
  • 00:21:42.220 --> 00:21:43.180
  • He gave one piece of land
  • 00:21:43.180 --> 00:21:44.200
  • to one particular people,
  • 00:21:44.200 --> 00:21:46.110
  • and that's Israel
  • 00:21:46.110 --> 00:21:47.190
  • to the Jewish people.
  • 00:21:47.190 --> 00:21:49.080
  • Had God given the Torah -
  • 00:21:49.080 --> 00:21:52.050
  • the law, the Bible, revelation -
  • 00:21:52.050 --> 00:21:55.010
  • in Jerusalem, we woulda been
  • 00:21:55.010 --> 00:21:57.040
  • able to say that
  • 00:21:57.040 --> 00:21:58.090
  • this book belongs
  • 00:21:58.090 --> 00:21:59.030
  • to us exclusively.
  • 00:21:59.030 --> 00:22:00.130
  • This is our book.
  • 00:22:00.130 --> 00:22:01.220
  • And therefore,
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:02.070
  • God chose the wilderness
  • 00:22:02.070 --> 00:22:04.090
  • to reveal Himself.
  • 00:22:04.090 --> 00:22:05.080
  • To give the Bible
  • 00:22:05.080 --> 00:22:06.170
  • to all of humanity.
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:08.200
  • Because the Bible is a message
  • 00:22:10.050 --> 00:22:13.050
  • for all of humanity.
  • 00:22:13.050 --> 00:22:14.260
  • Jews, non-Jews alike.
  • 00:22:14.260 --> 00:22:17.060
  • And that, you know -
  • 00:22:17.060 --> 00:22:18.280
  • so whereas the Bible was given -
  • 00:22:18.280 --> 00:22:21.260
  • the law was given in the desert
  • 00:22:21.260 --> 00:22:23.280
  • - that's not where it was
  • 00:22:23.280 --> 00:22:25.090
  • always meant to be.
  • 00:22:25.090 --> 00:22:27.190
  • - And Isaiah 2 -
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:29.210
  • it's an amazing passage.
  • 00:22:29.210 --> 00:22:31.120
  • Isaiah 2 -
  • 00:22:31.120 --> 00:22:32.200
  • and it's repeated in Micah 4.
  • 00:22:32.200 --> 00:22:34.280
  • But it says that
  • 00:22:34.280 --> 00:22:35.160
  • in the end of days, right?
  • 00:22:35.160 --> 00:22:37.240
  • In the end of days.
  • 00:22:37.240 --> 00:22:39.010
  • And to me, that means this time.
  • 00:22:39.010 --> 00:22:41.110
  • The times that we're living in.
  • 00:22:41.110 --> 00:22:43.020
  • The end of days, it says that
  • 00:22:43.020 --> 00:22:45.130
  • the word of Isaiah,
  • 00:22:45.130 --> 00:22:47.030
  • the son of Amoz,
  • 00:22:47.030 --> 00:22:47.280
  • prophesied concerning
  • 00:22:47.280 --> 00:22:48.230
  • Judah and Jerusalem
  • 00:22:48.230 --> 00:22:50.100
  • in the days to come.
  • 00:22:50.100 --> 00:22:51.130
  • In Hebrew [speaking in Hebrew].
  • 00:22:51.130 --> 00:22:53.260
  • Not the days to come,
  • 00:22:53.260 --> 00:22:54.190
  • but the end of days.
  • 00:22:54.190 --> 00:22:56.020
  • The mountain of God's house
  • 00:22:56.020 --> 00:22:57.180
  • will stand firm
  • 00:22:57.180 --> 00:22:58.160
  • above all the other mountains
  • 00:22:58.160 --> 00:22:59.210
  • and tower above
  • 00:22:59.210 --> 00:23:00.180
  • all of the hills.
  • 00:23:00.180 --> 00:23:01.180
  • And then it says
  • 00:23:01.180 --> 00:23:02.040
  • something amazing.
  • 00:23:02.040 --> 00:23:03.100
  • And all the nations
  • 00:23:03.100 --> 00:23:04.150
  • shall gaze on it with joy.
  • 00:23:04.150 --> 00:23:06.250
  • For the first time -
  • 00:23:06.250 --> 00:23:07.230
  • you had all the nations
  • 00:23:07.230 --> 00:23:09.020
  • fighting over this land.
  • 00:23:09.020 --> 00:23:10.190
  • And we're still
  • 00:23:10.190 --> 00:23:11.000
  • fighting over it.
  • 00:23:11.000 --> 00:23:12.080
  • But in the end of days,
  • 00:23:12.080 --> 00:23:13.110
  • all the nations are gonna
  • 00:23:13.110 --> 00:23:14.070
  • gaze on it with joy,
  • 00:23:14.070 --> 00:23:16.130
  • and many people are gonna go.
  • 00:23:16.130 --> 00:23:17.130
  • And they're gonna say,
  • 00:23:17.130 --> 00:23:17.270
  • come - let us go to
  • 00:23:17.270 --> 00:23:18.230
  • the mountain of God.
  • 00:23:18.230 --> 00:23:19.160
  • To the house of
  • 00:23:19.160 --> 00:23:20.030
  • the God of Jacob.
  • 00:23:20.030 --> 00:23:22.180
  • Why are all of the nations
  • 00:23:22.180 --> 00:23:24.160
  • gonna be interested
  • 00:23:24.160 --> 00:23:25.190
  • in this mountain?
  • 00:23:25.190 --> 00:23:28.160
  • One reason.
  • 00:23:28.160 --> 00:23:29.220
  • It's explicit.
  • 00:23:29.220 --> 00:23:31.010
  • It says it.
  • 00:23:31.010 --> 00:23:31.290
  • It's not me.
  • 00:23:31.290 --> 00:23:33.190
  • It's that He may instruct us
  • 00:23:33.190 --> 00:23:35.070
  • in His ways.
  • 00:23:35.070 --> 00:23:36.080
  • That we may walk in His path
  • 00:23:36.080 --> 00:23:38.050
  • for instruction.
  • 00:23:38.050 --> 00:23:40.020
  • Or in Hebrew
  • 00:23:40.020 --> 00:23:41.040
  • [speaking in Hebrew].
  • 00:23:41.040 --> 00:23:43.080
  • For Torah shall come forth
  • 00:23:43.080 --> 00:23:44.220
  • from Zion and the Word of God
  • 00:23:44.220 --> 00:23:47.070
  • from Jerusalem.
  • 00:23:47.070 --> 00:23:49.130
  • It might have been
  • 00:23:49.130 --> 00:23:49.290
  • given in the desert,
  • 00:23:49.290 --> 00:23:50.250
  • given in the wilderness,
  • 00:23:50.250 --> 00:23:51.270
  • but in the future,
  • 00:23:51.270 --> 00:23:52.280
  • the Bible's gonna come back.
  • 00:23:52.280 --> 00:23:54.000
  • God's word is gonna come back
  • 00:23:54.000 --> 00:23:55.130
  • to this mountain,
  • 00:23:55.130 --> 00:23:57.000
  • and it will become
  • 00:23:57.000 --> 00:23:57.200
  • a house of prayer
  • 00:23:57.200 --> 00:23:58.220
  • for all nations.
  • 00:23:58.220 --> 00:24:00.100
  • - Well, I believe that.
  • 00:24:00.100 --> 00:24:01.220
  • I believe we're seeing that,
  • 00:24:01.220 --> 00:24:03.040
  • but we're going to see it
  • 00:24:03.040 --> 00:24:04.240
  • even greater.
  • 00:24:04.240 --> 00:24:05.280
