  • they look for a cave to hide in.The first reference of a cave
  • 00:00:27.240 --> 00:00:30.009

  • was turnedinto a pillar of salt --
  • 00:00:42.956 --> 00:00:45.024
  • into a pillar of salt --the Bible said that he began
  • 00:00:45.024 --> 00:00:47.694
  • the Bible said that he beganto waiver in his faith.

  • His world was caving in,and he found a dark place
  • 00:01:07.046 --> 00:01:08.314
  • and he found a dark placebecause he was afraid,
  • 00:01:08.314 --> 00:01:09.516
  • because he was afraid,and he was worried,
  • 00:01:09.516 --> 00:01:11.518
  • and he was worried,and he was defeated.
  • 00:01:11.518 --> 00:01:14.888
  • and he was defeated.Fear will drive you in a cave.
  • 00:01:14.888 --> 00:01:17.857
  • Fear will drive you in a cave.Fear is faith in the enemy.
  • 00:01:17.857 --> 00:01:19.759

  • 00:01:33.740 --> 00:01:37.010
  • Fear will blur our realityof a living, powerful God.
  • 00:01:37.010 --> 00:01:39.746
  • of a living, powerful God.Fear will cause the devil
  • 00:01:39.746 --> 00:01:42.048
  • Fear will cause the devilto have a square dance.
  • 00:01:42.048 --> 00:01:45.151
  • to have a square dance.He loves it when you become
  • 00:01:45.151 --> 00:01:46.886
  • He loves it when you becomefearful and enter
  • 00:01:46.886 --> 00:01:48.821
  • fearful and enterinto a cave of fear,
  • 00:01:48.821 --> 00:01:51.524
  • into a cave of fear,worry, depression, darkness,
  • 00:01:51.524 --> 00:01:54.027
  • worry, depression, darkness,and discouragement.
  • 00:01:54.027 --> 00:01:57.030
  • and discouragement.David ran into a cave,
  • 00:01:57.030 --> 00:01:59.632
  • David ran into a cave,and there, he gathered men,
  • 00:01:59.632 --> 00:02:02.569
  • and there, he gathered men,300 men, who were in debt,
  • 00:02:02.569 --> 00:02:05.638
  • 300 men, who were in debt,discouraged, and discontent.
  • 00:02:05.638 --> 00:02:07.807
  • discouraged, and discontent.They all gathered and became
  • 00:02:07.807 --> 00:02:12.278
  • They all gathered and becamecavemen and lived in a cave.
  • 00:02:12.278 --> 00:02:13.580
  • cavemen and lived in a cave.You got all those people
  • 00:02:13.580 --> 00:02:15.281
  • You got all those peoplewho were defeated
  • 00:02:15.281 --> 00:02:15.748
  • who were defeatedand they lived
  • 00:02:15.748 --> 00:02:18.551
  • and they livedin a cave, together.
  • 00:02:18.551 --> 00:02:21.454
  • in a cave, together.And there, he hid from Saul,
  • 00:02:21.454 --> 00:02:24.824
  • And there, he hid from Saul,hid in fear from Saul's army
  • 00:02:24.824 --> 00:02:27.694
  • hid in fear from Saul's armythat was trying to kill him.
  • 00:02:27.694 --> 00:02:28.895
  • that was trying to kill him.It seems like over, and over,
  • 00:02:28.895 --> 00:02:30.230
  • It seems like over, and over,and over in the Bible,
  • 00:02:30.230 --> 00:02:32.966
  • and over in the Bible,when people were in trouble --
  • 00:02:32.966 --> 00:02:34.300
  • when people were in trouble --when God's people,
  • 00:02:34.300 --> 00:02:35.368
  • when God's people,the Israelites,
  • 00:02:35.368 --> 00:02:36.836
  • the Israelites,were being invaded
  • 00:02:36.836 --> 00:02:38.071
  • were being invadedby the Philistines
  • 00:02:38.071 --> 00:02:40.940
  • by the Philistinesor some other alien nation --
  • 00:02:40.940 --> 00:02:41.841
  • or some other alien nation --that they would run.
  • 00:02:41.841 --> 00:02:44.143
  • that they would run.The Bible says of Gideon's time
  • 00:02:44.143 --> 00:02:46.079
  • The Bible says of Gideon's timethat the people of God
  • 00:02:46.079 --> 00:02:49.115
  • that the people of Godhid themselves in the caves
  • 00:02:49.115 --> 00:02:50.850
  • hid themselves in the cavesand in the dens
  • 00:02:50.850 --> 00:02:54.487
  • and in the densin fear and trembling.
  • 00:02:54.487 --> 00:02:55.989
  • in fear and trembling.The normal reaction
  • 00:02:55.989 --> 00:02:57.957
  • The normal reactionwhen people are afraid
  • 00:02:57.957 --> 00:03:02.595
  • when people are afraidis to hide in a cave.
  • 00:03:02.595 --> 00:03:05.765
  • is to hide in a cave.The same is true for us today.
  • 00:03:05.765 --> 00:03:07.567
  • The same is true for us today.Of course, not a physical cave.
  • 00:03:07.567 --> 00:03:09.435
  • Of course, not a physical cave.But there are emotional caves,
  • 00:03:09.435 --> 00:03:11.738
  • But there are emotional caves,and caves of depression,
  • 00:03:11.738 --> 00:03:14.140
  • and caves of depression,and caves of isolation.
  • 00:03:14.140 --> 00:03:15.341
  • and caves of isolation.That when we get hurt,
  • 00:03:15.341 --> 00:03:16.609
  • That when we get hurt,when something happens,
  • 00:03:16.609 --> 00:03:20.480
  • when something happens,we retreat, and we cave.
  • 00:03:20.480 --> 00:03:22.148
  • we retreat, and we cave.Cave in, and go into
  • 00:03:22.148 --> 00:03:23.683
  • Cave in, and go intothat dark place,
  • 00:03:23.683 --> 00:03:25.885
  • that dark place,and live there isolated
  • 00:03:25.885 --> 00:03:28.554
  • and live there isolatedamong ourselves.
  • 00:03:28.554 --> 00:03:29.856
  • among ourselves.There are two great dangers
  • 00:03:29.856 --> 00:03:32.292
  • There are two great dangersabout caves.
  • 00:03:32.292 --> 00:03:35.728
  • about caves.Joshua 10:16 tells the story
  • 00:03:35.728 --> 00:03:37.230
  • Joshua 10:16 tells the storyof how that Joshua
  • 00:03:37.230 --> 00:03:38.631
  • of how that Joshuadefeated five armies,
  • 00:03:38.631 --> 00:03:39.565
  • defeated five armies,but the five kings
  • 00:03:39.565 --> 00:03:40.533
  • but the five kingsof those armies
  • 00:03:40.533 --> 00:03:43.803
  • of those armieswent and hid in a cave.
  • 00:03:43.803 --> 00:03:45.271
  • went and hid in a cave.And when Joshua heard
  • 00:03:45.271 --> 00:03:46.239
  • And when Joshua heardthat they were hiding
  • 00:03:46.239 --> 00:03:47.774
  • that they were hidingin the cave,
  • 00:03:47.774 --> 00:03:49.742
  • in the cave,he commanded that a large stone
  • 00:03:49.742 --> 00:03:53.212
  • he commanded that a large stonebe rolled in front of the cave.
  • 00:03:53.212 --> 00:03:54.013
  • be rolled in front of the cave.Now I want you to listen
  • 00:03:54.013 --> 00:03:57.817
  • Now I want you to listencarefully because
  • 00:03:57.817 --> 00:04:00.119
  • carefully becausethe hiding place
  • 00:04:00.119 --> 00:04:02.455
  • the hiding placehas now transformed
  • 00:04:02.455 --> 00:04:05.925
  • has now transformedinto a prison.
  • 00:04:05.925 --> 00:04:07.427
  • into a prison.If you retreat and hide
  • 00:04:07.427 --> 00:04:09.662
  • If you retreat and hidein a cave long enough,
  • 00:04:09.662 --> 00:04:11.864
  • in a cave long enough,it will become a prison.
  • 00:04:11.864 --> 00:04:13.132
  • it will become a prison.Now the hiding place
  • 00:04:13.132 --> 00:04:15.635
  • Now the hiding placewas a prison.
  • 00:04:15.635 --> 00:04:18.071
  • was a prison.I know what it is to be hurt.
  • 00:04:18.071 --> 00:04:19.739
  • I know what it is to be hurt.I know what it is to go through
  • 00:04:19.739 --> 00:04:22.208
  • I know what it is to go throughhard things and rejection.
  • 00:04:22.208 --> 00:04:24.711
  • hard things and rejection.All of us do.
  • 00:04:24.711 --> 00:04:26.312
  • All of us do.But the enemy wants you
  • 00:04:26.312 --> 00:04:28.481
  • But the enemy wants youto take what has happened
  • 00:04:28.481 --> 00:04:30.717
  • to take what has happenedand go into a hiding place.
  • 00:04:30.717 --> 00:04:32.685
  • and go into a hiding place.And if you don't get over it,
  • 00:04:32.685 --> 00:04:33.753
  • And if you don't get over it,and if you stay
  • 00:04:33.753 --> 00:04:35.722
  • and if you stayoffended and hurt,
  • 00:04:35.722 --> 00:04:38.524
  • offended and hurt,then that hiding place
  • 00:04:38.524 --> 00:04:38.825
  • then that hiding placewill become
  • 00:04:38.825 --> 00:04:40.560
  • will becomemore than a hiding place.
  • 00:04:40.560 --> 00:04:41.728
  • more than a hiding place.Emotionally for you,
  • 00:04:41.728 --> 00:04:44.097
  • Emotionally for you,it will become a prison.
  • 00:04:44.097 --> 00:04:46.432
  • it will become a prison.And once it becomes a prison,
  • 00:04:46.432 --> 00:04:48.000
  • And once it becomes a prison,here's the critical thing.
  • 00:04:48.000 --> 00:04:49.001
  • here's the critical thing.Then there came a time
  • 00:04:49.001 --> 00:04:51.771
  • Then there came a timewhen Joshua called them out,
  • 00:04:51.771 --> 00:04:54.741
  • when Joshua called them out,and he hung those five kings.
  • 00:04:54.741 --> 00:04:55.575
  • and he hung those five kings.And then he did
  • 00:04:55.575 --> 00:04:56.843
  • And then he didsomething strange.
  • 00:04:56.843 --> 00:04:58.578
  • something strange.He took their bodies
  • 00:04:58.578 --> 00:05:01.881
  • He took their bodiesand threw it in the same cave.
  • 00:05:01.881 --> 00:05:03.082
  • and threw it in the same cave.Notice that if you don't
  • 00:05:03.082 --> 00:05:04.584
  • Notice that if you don'tcome out of the place
  • 00:05:04.584 --> 00:05:06.319
  • come out of the placeof past hurt,
  • 00:05:06.319 --> 00:05:08.187
  • of past hurt,it will become a prison.
  • 00:05:08.187 --> 00:05:09.255
  • it will become a prison.And if you stay
  • 00:05:09.255 --> 00:05:10.356
  • And if you staythere long enough,
  • 00:05:10.356 --> 00:05:12.091
  • there long enough,it won't just become a prison,
  • 00:05:12.091 --> 00:05:14.627
  • it won't just become a prison,but it will become a grave.
  • 00:05:14.627 --> 00:05:16.062
  • but it will become a grave.If you don't let go
  • 00:05:16.062 --> 00:05:17.597
  • If you don't let goof what happened,
  • 00:05:17.597 --> 00:05:22.635
  • of what happened,the cave will become a grave.
  • 00:05:22.635 --> 00:05:23.603
  • the cave will become a grave.If you carry
  • 00:05:23.603 --> 00:05:25.805
  • If you carryan unforgiving spirit,
  • 00:05:25.805 --> 00:05:29.108
  • an unforgiving spirit,an unforgiving attitude,
  • 00:05:29.108 --> 00:05:32.378
  • an unforgiving attitude,an unforgiving mouth --
  • 00:05:32.378 --> 00:05:34.080
  • an unforgiving mouth --because that's where
  • 00:05:34.080 --> 00:05:37.950
  • because that's whereit shows up --
  • 00:05:37.950 --> 00:05:40.653
  • it shows up --then it will become a grave
  • 00:05:40.653 --> 00:05:42.388
  • then it will become a graveto God's plan.
  • 00:05:42.388 --> 00:05:44.690
  • to God's plan.To God's purpose.
  • 00:05:44.690 --> 00:05:45.925

  • 00:05:56.235 --> 00:06:00.106
  • Obadiah feared the Lord greatly,the Bible said, and he took --
  • 00:06:00.106 --> 00:06:01.774
  • the Bible said, and he took --in the time that Jezebel
  • 00:06:01.774 --> 00:06:03.242
  • in the time that Jezebeland Ahab were killing
  • 00:06:03.242 --> 00:06:04.944

  • all of the prophets,he hid 100 of them in a cave.
  • 00:06:08.714 --> 00:06:11.350
  • he hid 100 of them in a cave.And Elijah showed up and said,

  • And Elijah showed up and said,"What are you doing
  • 00:06:13.386 --> 00:06:16.022
  • "What are you doingin the cave?"

  • 00:06:19.058 --> 00:06:21.194
  • Elijah had a different attitude.He said the preachers --

  • The sword of the Lordand Gideon.
  • 00:14:51.804 --> 00:14:54.239
  • and Gideon.What's wrong with that story?
  • 00:14:54.239 --> 00:14:59.211
  • What's wrong with that story?Gideon didn't have a sword.
  • 00:14:59.211 --> 00:15:00.412
  • Gideon didn't have a sword.The Bible just told you
  • 00:15:00.412 --> 00:15:02.915

  • It's coming out of the cave.And a bunch of cave people
  • 00:15:14.326 --> 00:15:15.094
  • And a bunch of cave peopleare going to come out
  • 00:15:15.094 --> 00:15:16.829

  • Here's what I want youto understand.
  • 00:15:25.871 --> 00:15:28.474
  • to understand.In Jewish thought,
  • 00:15:28.474 --> 00:15:29.575
  • In Jewish thought,it means this.
  • 00:15:29.575 --> 00:15:30.642
  • it means this.That the Word of God
  • 00:15:30.642 --> 00:15:33.946
  • That the Word of Godis a two-edged sword.
  • 00:15:33.946 --> 00:15:35.147
  • is a two-edged sword.And when it goes out
  • 00:15:35.147 --> 00:15:37.616
  • And when it goes outof God's mouth,
  • 00:15:37.616 --> 00:15:42.221
  • of God's mouth,that's a sword with one edge.
  • 00:15:42.221 --> 00:15:44.590
  • that's a sword with one edge.But what you say
  • 00:15:44.590 --> 00:15:48.460
  • But what you sayis the two-edged sword.
  • 00:15:48.460 --> 00:15:51.597
  • is the two-edged sword.So the point is simply this.
  • 00:15:51.597 --> 00:15:55.200
  • So the point is simply this.You have to speak what God says
  • 00:15:55.200 --> 00:15:56.001
  • You have to speak what God saysif you're going to come out
  • 00:15:56.001 --> 00:15:57.736
  • if you're going to come outof the cave and do
  • 00:15:57.736 --> 00:15:59.972
  • of the cave and dowhat God says.
  • 00:15:59.972 --> 00:16:01.306
  • what God says.You have to speak
  • 00:16:01.306 --> 00:16:02.775
  • You have to speakwhat He speaks.
  • 00:16:02.775 --> 00:16:04.676
  • what He speaks.It's got an edge,
  • 00:16:04.676 --> 00:16:07.679
  • It's got an edge,and it's a sword with an edge
  • 00:16:07.679 --> 00:16:08.947
  • and it's a sword with an edgewhen He speaks it.
  • 00:16:08.947 --> 00:16:09.515
  • when He speaks it.But what makes it
  • 00:16:09.515 --> 00:16:10.849
  • But what makes ita two-edged sword
  • 00:16:10.849 --> 00:16:12.017
  • a two-edged swordis when you speak
  • 00:16:12.017 --> 00:16:14.520
  • is when you speakwhat He speaks.
  • 00:16:14.520 --> 00:16:17.623
  • what He speaks.So I just simply say
  • 00:16:17.623 --> 00:16:19.958
  • So I just simply saywhat God says.
  • 00:16:19.958 --> 00:16:22.394
  • what God says.I am the righteousness
