  • - Ladies and Gentleman, I believe
  • 00:00:04.040 --> 00:00:05.190
  • it's a greater sin to not get back up and fight again.
  • 00:00:05.190 --> 00:00:09.200
  • That's what God wants you to do.
  • 00:00:10.270 --> 00:00:12.090
  • When you fall, he says rise up and go forward.
  • 00:00:12.090 --> 00:00:15.250
  • (clapping)
  • 00:00:15.250 --> 00:00:17.170
  • - We don't just survive things,
  • 00:00:17.170 --> 00:00:20.070
  • we overcome in every area of our lives.
  • 00:00:20.070 --> 00:00:23.140
  • - God has some design the human mechanism,
  • 00:00:25.280 --> 00:00:29.080
  • the spirit, soul, and body
  • 00:00:29.080 --> 00:00:30.270
  • that your life begins to move in the direction
  • 00:00:30.270 --> 00:00:34.250
  • of what you see.
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:36.180
  • - You got to visualize.
  • 00:00:36.180 --> 00:00:38.090
  • You gotta verbalize.
  • 00:00:38.090 --> 00:00:40.030
  • You gotta internalize until it materializes.
  • 00:00:40.030 --> 00:00:43.240
  • - If you see health, your body will move in that direction.
  • 00:00:46.290 --> 00:00:51.250
  • - Whew.
  • 00:00:51.250 --> 00:00:52.200
  • - No, but, I need you to really hear this,
  • 00:01:42.290 --> 00:01:45.220
  • He says that He's a way maker
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:48.050
  • and most of the time, when we're going through something,
  • 00:01:49.170 --> 00:01:53.270
  • we all automatically look for the way out,
  • 00:01:53.270 --> 00:01:58.040
  • we look for Him to make a way.
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:02:00.210
  • But I have something to submit to you this morning,
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:05.180
  • that He is the way, that He has already made the way.
  • 00:02:05.180 --> 00:02:09.230
  • No, no, I know that sounds good, and that's like
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:14.230
  • yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, but I need you to give revelation of
  • 00:02:14.230 --> 00:02:18.280
  • that you don't have to look for a way
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:23.120
  • when you're going through something,
  • 00:02:23.120 --> 00:02:26.100
  • you don't have to expect Him to make a way,
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:30.190
  • because the way has already been made.
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:34.090
  • The Bible says that Jesus is the,
  • 00:02:34.090 --> 00:02:37.020
  • - [Congregation] Way.
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:40.180
  • - So when you're singin' this song, you gotta realize
  • 00:02:40.180 --> 00:02:44.270
  • that all I gotta do is get in the way.
  • 00:02:44.270 --> 00:02:48.190
  • I have to just get in the way
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:51.060
  • that has already been made for me.
  • 00:02:51.060 --> 00:02:54.010
  • (congregation cheering in agreement)
  • 00:02:55.060 --> 00:02:57.210
  • Like when my health is failin',
  • 00:02:57.210 --> 00:02:59.270
  • and all Hell is breakin' loose, I have to realize
  • 00:02:59.270 --> 00:03:04.140
  • that my life, Debbie, is not an emergency,
  • 00:03:04.140 --> 00:03:08.070
  • that God has already created the way.
  • 00:03:08.070 --> 00:03:11.100
  • All I have to know that He is a way maker,
  • 00:03:13.150 --> 00:03:17.000
  • a miracle worker, that He's already made it, sing it, y'all.
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:22.200
  • Promise keeper
  • 00:03:22.200 --> 00:03:24.160
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:03:24.160 --> 00:03:27.030
  • My God
  • 00:03:27.030 --> 00:03:28.190
  • That is who You are
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:31.240
  • Woah
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:35.050
  • Way maker
  • 00:03:35.050 --> 00:03:36.200
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:38.180
  • Promise keeper
  • 00:03:38.180 --> 00:03:40.190
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:03:40.190 --> 00:03:43.050
  • My God
  • 00:03:43.050 --> 00:03:44.210
  • That is who You are
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:47.260
  • - But there's a scripture, 1 Corinthians 10:13,
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:53.140
  • it talks about that way like God has already made that way.
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:57.190
  • Before you were ever even thought of,
  • 00:04:00.080 --> 00:04:03.010
  • before you were created, before your parents got together,
  • 00:04:03.010 --> 00:04:07.060
  • God went to the end of your life,
  • 00:04:08.110 --> 00:04:10.280
  • and He made a way for you.
  • 00:04:11.250 --> 00:04:14.000
  • No, no, you gotta see this.
  • 00:04:17.000 --> 00:04:18.200
  • Pastor Mike did this illustration, come here, come here,
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:22.250
  • and then when I show you the scripture
  • 00:04:24.000 --> 00:04:25.130
  • you really gonna kinda get it.
  • 00:04:25.130 --> 00:04:27.130
  • I need you to go because you're havin' challenges,
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:31.130
  • and you're goin' through all kinda stuff,
  • 00:04:31.130 --> 00:04:33.280
  • but somethin' is followin' her.
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:36.150
  • I know you think it's just mercy and grace,
  • 00:04:36.150 --> 00:04:39.040
  • and your angels and all, but look, your way
  • 00:04:39.040 --> 00:04:42.190
  • is already there, your way is following your challenges,
  • 00:04:42.190 --> 00:04:46.240
  • your way is right here with you,
  • 00:04:48.130 --> 00:04:51.120
  • your way doesn't have to be created,
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:54.120
  • look, this is the way.
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:57.170
  • You may not feel like liftin' up your hands,
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:04:57.260
  • but since I know that worship is a way of escape for me,
  • 00:04:58.280 --> 00:05:02.010
  • I'm gon' give it up.
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:06.050
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:05:06.050 --> 00:05:08.080
  • In every heart
  • 00:05:08.080 --> 00:05:11.010
  • I worship You
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:14.080
  • That's what we do, Jesus
  • 00:05:14.080 --> 00:05:17.130
  • We open up our mouth
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:19.100
  • We lift up our hands
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:21.050
  • Because the King is here
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:24.150
  • We know You can do it, Jesus
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:28.040
  • We worship You, Jesus
  • 00:05:28.040 --> 00:05:31.230
  • We worship You, Father
  • 00:05:31.230 --> 00:05:33.200
  • Hey
  • 00:05:33.200 --> 00:05:34.230
  • You are here
  • 00:05:34.230 --> 00:05:36.020
  • There's nothin' like bein' in Your presence
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:39.130
  • I can do it when I'm in Your presence
  • 00:05:39.130 --> 00:05:43.130
  • And I worship You Jesus, yes I do
  • 00:05:43.130 --> 00:05:46.040
  • I worship You
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:47.140
  • Alleluia
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:50.070
  • You are here
  • 00:05:50.070 --> 00:05:53.010
  • Turnin' lives around
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:55.010
  • Whatever you need Him to do
  • 00:05:55.010 --> 00:05:59.010
  • I open up my mouth
  • 00:05:59.010 --> 00:06:01.160
  • I worship You
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:04.060
  • You are here
  • 00:06:05.030 --> 00:06:07.190
  • Turning lives
  • 00:06:07.190 --> 00:06:08.200
  • Mending every heart
  • 00:06:08.200 --> 00:06:11.070
  • You're mending every heart
  • 00:06:11.070 --> 00:06:12.270
  • I worship You
  • 00:06:12.270 --> 00:06:14.230
  • There's nothing else for me to do
  • 00:06:14.230 --> 00:06:16.080
  • But worship
  • 00:06:16.080 --> 00:06:18.110
  • When I don't understand I do worship
  • 00:06:18.110 --> 00:06:22.060
  • The King of glory is here
  • 00:06:22.060 --> 00:06:25.080
  • The King of glory is here
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:27.260
  • I worship
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:29.270
  • I serve an able God
  • 00:06:29.270 --> 00:06:31.220
  • I worship You
  • 00:06:31.220 --> 00:06:34.120
  • You are here
  • 00:06:35.150 --> 00:06:37.130
  • Yeah
  • 00:06:37.130 --> 00:06:38.120
  • Mending every heart
  • 00:06:38.120 --> 00:06:40.140
  • Mending every broken heart
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:44.130
  • We receive it, Jesus
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:47.110
  • We receive it, Jesus
  • 00:06:47.110 --> 00:06:50.190
  • And I know I keep talkin' about,
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:53.240
  • but a lotta times people always ask
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:55.230
  • how did you really get through
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:58.080
  • when Pastor Mike was in the hospital?
  • 00:06:59.230 --> 00:07:02.280
  • It's like they want something else other than the Word,
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:07.030
  • or what I did.
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:09.250
  • Like come on, you had to feel something,
  • 00:07:11.040 --> 00:07:14.140
  • you had to, I don't know,
  • 00:07:16.000 --> 00:07:18.020
  • click your heels three times
  • 00:07:21.170 --> 00:07:23.020
  • and it was over, you had to, you had to pop a pill
  • 00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:27.070
  • to be able to go to sleep, you had to get some Xanax,
  • 00:07:28.210 --> 00:07:33.130
  • is that what it's called, to calm your nerves,
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:37.020
  • did the priest come in and lay hands on you?
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:40.220
  • But no, all I did was stayed in worship,
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:44.220
  • I promise you that's all I did,
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:47.090
  • because in His presence, and listen,
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:51.110
  • I don't have to create His presence,
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:56.080
  • I don't even have to enter into His presence,
  • 00:07:56.080 --> 00:07:59.180
  • because I live in His presence.
  • 00:07:59.180 --> 00:08:02.080
  • So when I wanna worship, when I wanna lift my hands,
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:07.130
  • I don't have to go to another place,
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:11.270
  • all I have to do is to remain faithful in where I am,
  • 00:08:11.270 --> 00:08:16.030
  • and lift my hands, and give Him praise and adoration,
  • 00:08:16.030 --> 00:08:20.050
  • and let Him know how much I trust Him,
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:23.150
  • how much I believe His Word,
  • 00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:25.260
  • how much I know that He's gonna do and manifest
  • 00:08:25.260 --> 00:08:28.240
  • everything that He has already promised.
  • 00:08:28.240 --> 00:08:31.190
  • Our problem is we focus and we make everything
  • 00:08:31.190 --> 00:08:35.250
  • everybody else say so much bigger
  • 00:08:35.250 --> 00:08:38.240
  • than the only one that will keep His word.
  • 00:08:38.240 --> 00:08:41.190
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:08:41.190 --> 00:08:45.160
  • You trust your husband, you trust your wife,
  • 00:08:45.160 --> 00:08:49.110
  • you even trust your supervisor to pay you
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:51.290
  • at the end of the week, and how many of you know
  • 00:08:51.290 --> 00:08:55.070
  • that businesses are closing every day?
  • 00:08:55.070 --> 00:08:58.130
  • Why is it that you trust them
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:02.210
  • more than the one that you would trust,
  • 00:09:02.210 --> 00:09:04.210
  • the one who would keep His word,
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:06.210
  • more than the one who have created You?
  • 00:09:06.210 --> 00:09:09.280
  • God says, I am not a man that I should lie,
  • 00:09:11.070 --> 00:09:14.240
  • neither the son of man that I should have to repent.
  • 00:09:17.120 --> 00:09:20.190
  • But if I said it, - Come on.
  • 00:09:20.190 --> 00:09:22.260
  • - Come on, just lift your hands, just don't even sing,
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:27.150
  • just lift your hands and begin to worship God
  • 00:09:27.150 --> 00:09:31.190
  • and thank Him for who He is, and appreciate Him
  • 00:09:31.190 --> 00:09:35.200
  • for what He's already done.
  • 00:09:35.200 --> 00:09:37.280
  • Come on, you don't have to look at me,
  • 00:09:39.030 --> 00:09:40.180
  • why don't you close your eyes and go 'head
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:43.120
  • and do what you do when you're at home
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:45.280
  • in that secret place, every man lift your hands.
  • 00:09:45.280 --> 00:09:49.280
  • Lift your hands, there's nothing sexier than a man
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:54.050
  • that will worship God.
  • 00:09:54.050 --> 00:09:56.000
  • Hallelujah, come on, let me hear your voices,
  • 00:09:58.200 --> 00:10:02.110
  • come on, sing a new song unto the Lord.
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:06.150
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:10.010

  • month of worshipers, sure is.
  • 00:10:28.030 --> 00:10:30.220
  • He said, "But it's also the eighth month,"
  • 00:10:30.220 --> 00:10:34.070
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:10:35.150 --> 00:10:39.080
  • He said, "It's also the eighth month."
  • 00:10:39.080 --> 00:10:42.100
  • Pastor Mike and I wanted to jump out of our skin.
  • 00:10:42.100 --> 00:10:46.130
  • The eighth month, eighth means the new beginnings, look,
  • 00:10:47.260 --> 00:10:51.210
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:10:54.030 --> 00:10:55.270
  • no, no, no, see, your worship will change your focus.

  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:56.180
  • Listen to me,
  • 00:12:56.180 --> 00:12:57.200
  • your manifestation is in your mouth,
  • 00:13:01.080 --> 00:13:04.080
  • it's in your mouth.
  • 00:13:08.080 --> 00:13:09.260
  • If you don't like how your life presently is,
  • 00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:15.250
  • open your mouth, begin to decree and to declare
  • 00:13:17.090 --> 00:13:21.060
  • those things that you wanna see happen in your life.
  • 00:13:23.170 --> 00:13:27.140
  • The Bible says, oh say, she's goin' to the Bible,
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:30.050
  • she goin' to the Bible, the Bible says, whatsoever,
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:34.150
  • say whatsoever. - Whatsoever.
  • 00:13:34.150 --> 00:13:36.080
  • - Whatsoever we don't like here on this earth, bind it.
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:40.130
  • What we like in the heavens, loosen.
  • 00:13:41.250 --> 00:13:44.250
  • Where did the power start?
  • 00:13:45.220 --> 00:13:48.070
  • It started in the earth.
  • 00:13:48.070 --> 00:13:50.070
  • I knew these two had somethin' to say,
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:56.140
  • I asked Breeland a second ago, and she told me no,
  • 00:13:56.140 --> 00:13:59.280
  • I knew she had somethin'.
  • 00:13:59.280 --> 00:14:01.150
  • I kept lookin' at Debbie, Debbie wouldn't look at me,
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:03.290
  • and then when they both looked at me,
  • 00:14:03.290 --> 00:14:05.180
  • see, I'mma tell you somethin',
  • 00:14:05.180 --> 00:14:06.230
  • when you are sensitive in the Spirit,
  • 00:14:06.230 --> 00:14:09.260
  • and when you're in worship, no,
  • 00:14:09.260 --> 00:14:12.030
  • when you live a life of worship,
  • 00:14:12.030 --> 00:14:15.160
  • you will sense in here and know and recognize
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:18.210
  • the voice of God.
  • 00:14:18.210 --> 00:14:20.030
  • I'm telling you, you will automatically know
  • 00:14:21.070 --> 00:14:23.200
  • if this is God speaking to you,
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:25.220
  • because Satan can't enter into God's presence.
  • 00:14:25.220 --> 00:14:29.170
  • Satan can't come into worship.
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:34.160
  • So when you're in worship, you are sensitive,
  • 00:14:35.260 --> 00:14:39.110
  • and you'll hear the voice of God so clear,
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:44.010
  • and He'll say, yeah, do that, say that,
  • 00:14:44.010 --> 00:14:46.090
  • don't do that, don't say that.
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:48.200
  • And Debbie, I was over here and I was like, yes,
  • 00:14:48.200 --> 00:14:52.230
  • and jumpin' like this.
  • 00:14:52.230 --> 00:14:54.180
  • I was like, thank You, Jesus,
  • 00:14:56.060 --> 00:14:59.010
  • because I remember Debbie about 15 years ago
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:02.230
  • when they told me I had Rheumatoid Arthritis,
  • 00:15:04.150 --> 00:15:07.010
  • and I couldn't put on my shoes
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:09.040
  • 'cause my feet would swell up so bad,
  • 00:15:09.040 --> 00:15:11.210
  • and how it used to pain me and ache me.
  • 00:15:11.210 --> 00:15:15.020
  • I'm not talkin' about just typical wear,
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:17.220
  • like your feet hurt 'cause you got on high heels,
  • 00:15:17.220 --> 00:15:21.000
  • I'm talkin' about Rheumatoid where they swelled
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:23.130
  • and they start to reshape themselves.
  • 00:15:23.130 --> 00:15:25.280
  • And I'm sayin' uh huh, uh huh, Kelly, no,
  • 00:15:25.280 --> 00:15:29.100
  • uh huh, I don't receive that.
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:32.120
  • So I remember, say she remember.
  • 00:15:32.120 --> 00:15:34.180
  • - She remembered. - That's the power
  • 00:15:34.180 --> 00:15:36.020
  • of your remembering, stop remembering everything
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:38.000
  • that the enemy wants you to remember,
  • 00:15:38.000 --> 00:15:40.020
  • and remember the past victories you have
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:43.010
  • so you can live out your presence victories.
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:45.260
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:15:45.260 --> 00:15:48.000
  • So I remember when I got home, I put on some heels,
  • 00:15:48.000 --> 00:15:52.050
  • not flats, I put on some heels, and I got in my driveway,
  • 00:15:53.160 --> 00:15:58.070
  • I said, I refuse to have Rheumatoid,
  • 00:15:58.070 --> 00:16:01.090
  • God, I worship You because Your Word is true,
  • 00:16:04.050 --> 00:16:07.280
  • and I trust You.
  • 00:16:08.230 --> 00:16:10.220
  • All of Your promises are yes and Amen,
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:13.270
  • that by Your stripes I am healed!
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:18.090
  • You are here
  • 00:16:20.180 --> 00:16:20.220
  • And then number six, right?
  • 00:16:25.230 --> 00:16:26.250
  • You got six?
  • 00:16:26.250 --> 00:16:27.250
  • Number one, you must study God's word,
  • 00:16:29.060 --> 00:16:31.050
  • number two, pray, number three, practice fellowship,
  • 00:16:31.050 --> 00:16:34.090
  • number four, make disciples, number five, sacrifice,
  • 00:16:34.090 --> 00:16:38.230
  • number six, you must be a good steward.
  • 00:16:38.230 --> 00:16:42.120
  • Say a good steward.
  • 00:16:42.120 --> 00:16:43.110
  • - [Congregation] A good steward.
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:44.250
  • - Number seven we're going to try to cover today
  • 00:16:44.250 --> 00:16:46.050
  • and eight, you must serve others,
  • 00:16:46.050 --> 00:16:48.180
  • and you must display the proper kind of conduct.
  • 00:16:48.180 --> 00:16:52.180
  • Now when I was going through this lesson,
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:56.140
  • boy I wish, I mean, I'll tell you,
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:58.140
  • I was so convicted, because this lesson made me wish
  • 00:16:58.140 --> 00:17:03.150
  • I acted like I was supposed to act
  • 00:17:03.150 --> 00:17:05.270
  • all of my Christian walk.
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:08.000
  • I didn't get too many amens out of that, but
  • 00:17:12.120 --> 00:17:14.200
  • you will feel the same way after I'm finished.
  • 00:17:14.200 --> 00:17:18.190
  • Hunch your neighbor say, you better cool believe that,
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:20.180
  • you better cool believe that.
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:23.110
  • Matthew 25, let's go there.
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:25.210
  • Matthew 25, let's look at verse number 34.
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:29.060
  • Glory to God, I'm setting you up like a mullet.
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:35.070
  • (chuckles) I'm setting you up, boy,
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:38.200
  • this is gonna bless your life, yes indeed.
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:42.030
  • Now,
  • 00:17:44.150 --> 00:17:45.100
  • let me make sure this is clear to you.
  • 00:17:47.210 --> 00:17:50.050
  • The only reason you are on this earth today as a believer
  • 00:17:50.050 --> 00:17:54.100
  • is so that you might carry out the plan of Jesus Christ
  • 00:17:56.030 --> 00:17:59.130
  • to reach other men and women
  • 00:17:59.130 --> 00:18:01.110
  • with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:04.070
  • It is with this understanding in mind
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:06.200
  • that we accept the plan to follow Christ
  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:10.030
  • and to disciple others.
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:12.240
  • Some people think the extent of their receiving Jesus
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:16.220
  • is having
  • 00:18:16.220 --> 00:18:17.170
  • enter into heaven card.
  • 00:18:19.280 --> 00:18:21.250
  • But if salvation was simply about your going to heaven,
  • 00:18:23.090 --> 00:18:27.100
  • when you receive Jesus Christ,
  • 00:18:27.100 --> 00:18:29.170
  • you should've just went on to heaven.
  • 00:18:29.170 --> 00:18:32.200
  • But there's much more involved
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:37.020
  • in your accepting Jesus Christ as Lord,
  • 00:18:37.020 --> 00:18:39.200
  • because he expected that your life would represent
  • 00:18:39.200 --> 00:18:43.190
  • what his life represented on earth
  • 00:18:43.190 --> 00:18:46.110
  • and just like you've been drawn to him by his love,
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:50.180
  • the others in your life will be joined
  • 00:18:50.180 --> 00:18:54.060
  • and drawn to you by the love of God
  • 00:18:54.060 --> 00:18:57.040
  • that you display and exhibit from Christ.
  • 00:18:58.100 --> 00:19:01.170
  • Notice the Bible calls us the salt of the earth.
  • 00:19:02.290 --> 00:19:06.160
  • The Bible calls us the light of the world.
  • 00:19:06.160 --> 00:19:10.120
  • And not many believers are sprinkling the salt
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:14.070
  • that comes from the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:19:15.200 --> 00:19:18.290
  • in the lives of others, so that their lives can be
  • 00:19:18.290 --> 00:19:23.020
  • translated into the kind of flavor
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:26.150
  • that God intended for them to have in their life.
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:28.270
  • Notice the Bible says, taste and see that the Lord is good.
  • 00:19:28.270 --> 00:19:32.110
  • I'm preaching better than you realize.
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:34.240
  • Unfortunately, there are more salt substitutes in the earth.
  • 00:19:34.240 --> 00:19:38.290
  • (congregation mumbles)
  • 00:19:39.280 --> 00:19:42.170
  • (chuckles) I'm just having myself a good time.
  • 00:19:42.170 --> 00:19:44.230
  • I'm preaching good all by myself.
  • 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:47.270
  • And there are some who have
  • 00:19:47.270 --> 00:19:50.050
  • chosen a salt substitute,
  • 00:19:51.090 --> 00:19:53.210
  • because they want to reduce the sodium amount
  • 00:19:53.210 --> 00:19:56.230
  • of intake that they have.
  • 00:19:56.230 --> 00:19:58.110
  • But when it comes to the body of Christ,
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:20:01.140
  • you can't use a salt substitute
  • 00:20:01.140 --> 00:20:04.210
  • to sprinkle the earth with the flavor of God
  • 00:20:04.210 --> 00:20:07.290
  • and expect for the world to respond to you.
  • 00:20:07.290 --> 00:20:11.160
  • I mean, use that stuff and then you sprinkle it
  • 00:20:13.000 --> 00:20:14.270
  • and you just say, wait a minute.
  • 00:20:14.270 --> 00:20:16.080
  • Taste and (whines).
  • 00:20:16.080 --> 00:20:17.200
  • It never seems like it's enough.
  • 00:20:17.200 --> 00:20:19.070
  • And there are a lot of salt decoys in the body of Christ.
  • 00:20:19.070 --> 00:20:23.120
  • Turn to your neighbor and say he may be talking about you
  • 00:20:25.240 --> 00:20:27.160
  • and you didn't even realize it.
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:30.040
  • Watch this.
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:33.280
  • Verse 34.
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:35.280
  • Jesus is speaking here.
  • 00:20:37.220 --> 00:20:39.290
  • Then the king will say to those
  • 00:20:39.290 --> 00:20:43.000
  • who are on his right hand.
  • 00:20:43.000 --> 00:20:45.060
  • Look up for a moment, look up, look up.
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:48.130
  • When we all get around the judgment seat,
  • 00:20:50.050 --> 00:20:53.190
  • the bema seat of Christ, when we all get around,
  • 00:20:53.190 --> 00:20:57.190
  • and you look up and realize your there,
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:01.170
  • let me help you out with something.
  • 00:21:01.170 --> 00:21:04.160
  • Make sure
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:05.110
  • that you are on his right side.
  • 00:21:06.200 --> 00:21:09.000
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:21:09.000 --> 00:21:11.060
  • I'm just saying.
  • 00:21:11.060 --> 00:21:12.160
  • Hunch your neighbor and say he a good pastor,
  • 00:21:12.160 --> 00:21:13.280
  • he trying to look out for you.
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:15.050
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:16.060
  • I'm just saying.
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:17.120
  • There's something gonna happen to those

  • Gotta check that out.
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:45.170
  • I had the opportunity to go about four or five years ago

  • 00:22:48.040 --> 00:22:51.050
  • It's some of the most exquisite hotels.
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:22:54.270

  • that has been prepared for you.
  • 00:23:25.290 --> 00:23:29.090

  • Push that person in front of you again and say,
  • 00:23:32.140 --> 00:23:35.100
  • you don't wanna miss heaven.
  • 00:23:35.100 --> 00:23:37.060
  • Scripture said he that winneth souls
  • 00:23:37.130 --> 00:23:38.290
  • - [Congregation] Is wise.
  • 00:23:38.290 --> 00:23:39.290
  • - Is wise.
  • 00:23:39.290 --> 00:23:41.050
  • So now while I'm around certain individuals,
  • 00:23:41.050 --> 00:23:42.280
  • Paul said although everything is lawful,
  • 00:23:42.280 --> 00:23:46.250
  • everything is not expedient.
  • 00:23:46.250 --> 00:23:49.120
  • It's not good for me to do certain things
  • 00:23:49.120 --> 00:23:51.160
  • when I'm around those who are on the outside,
  • 00:23:51.160 --> 00:23:54.050
  • because they aren't gonna understand.
  • 00:23:54.050 --> 00:23:55.290
  • Like, if you get an unbeliever in your car
  • 00:23:55.290 --> 00:23:57.240
  • and you like listening to jazz,
  • 00:23:57.240 --> 00:23:59.220
  • you need to turn your jazz station to a gospel station
  • 00:23:59.220 --> 00:24:02.270
  • so that unbeliever won't get mixed up about,
  • 00:24:02.270 --> 00:24:05.230
  • 'cause they thinking, you say you a Christian,
  • 00:24:05.230 --> 00:24:08.010
  • see, and I gotta be wise
  • 00:24:08.010 --> 00:24:09.260
  • when I'm around the unbeliever than a believer.
  • 00:24:09.260 --> 00:24:13.110
  • a believer knows the liberty that we have
  • 00:24:13.110 --> 00:24:15.150
  • is not subjected to that kind of music.
  • 00:24:15.150 --> 00:24:18.230
  • Some of the music, of course, is vulgar,
  • 00:24:20.080 --> 00:24:22.050
  • you shouldn't be listening to it at all.
  • 00:24:22.050 --> 00:24:25.150
  • Are you understanding what I'm saying?
  • 00:24:27.050 --> 00:24:28.110
  • So I have to be aware of that person
  • 00:24:28.110 --> 00:24:30.130
  • who's on the outside that's around me.
  • 00:24:30.130 --> 00:24:33.190
  • Like where are my wine drinkers at?
  • 00:24:33.190 --> 00:24:35.100
  • Where are my winebibbers?
  • 00:24:35.100 --> 00:24:37.010
  • Where are my wine, why, why, why, why?
  • 00:24:37.010 --> 00:24:40.070
  • I didn't think they were gonna lift their hands.
  • 00:24:40.070 --> 00:24:42.120
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:24:42.120 --> 00:24:44.080
  • Okay, okay.
  • 00:24:44.080 --> 00:24:45.270
  • There's another group.
  • 00:24:45.270 --> 00:24:47.290
  • Where are my adulterers at?
  • 00:24:47.290 --> 00:24:49.050
  • Where, where, where.
  • 00:24:49.050 --> 00:24:50.240
  • Since y'all anteing up like.
  • 00:24:50.240 --> 00:24:52.180
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:24:52.180 --> 00:24:55.220
  • Where are my whoremongers?
  • 00:24:55.220 --> 00:24:56.260
  • Any whoremongers come on.
  • 00:24:56.260 --> 00:24:58.290
  • Like Tyson, let me say, listen,
  • 00:24:59.260 --> 00:25:01.200
  • you can't find one Scripture in this Bible
  • 00:25:01.200 --> 00:25:03.290
  • where it says you are in sin if you drink wine.
  • 00:25:03.290 --> 00:25:07.090
  • You can't.
  • 00:25:07.090 --> 00:25:08.180
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:25:08.180 --> 00:25:11.230
  • The wine people say yes.
  • 00:25:12.200 --> 00:25:13.260
  • Yes!
  • 00:25:13.260 --> 00:25:15.090
  • That's, this my church.
  • 00:25:15.090 --> 00:25:17.060
  • I've been waiting for somebody to address this.
  • 00:25:18.180 --> 00:25:20.260
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:25:20.260 --> 00:25:24.120
  • Lord Jesus, I.
  • 00:25:24.120 --> 00:25:25.170
  • Just blew that hat right in the creek, boy.
  • 00:25:35.190 --> 00:25:37.180
  • Yeah, that's what I'm saying.
  • 00:25:37.180 --> 00:25:40.010
  • Scripture just talking about wine in excess
  • 00:25:45.180 --> 00:25:49.110
  • where you're drunk.
  • 00:25:49.110 --> 00:25:51.140
  • But when I was drinking, I never knew where that line was.
  • 00:25:51.140 --> 00:25:54.040
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:25:54.040 --> 00:25:56.020
  • I couldn't find the line.
  • 00:25:56.020 --> 00:25:57.140
  • Maybe you know the line, but you say I'm drinking
  • 00:25:57.140 --> 00:25:59.070
  • to take the edge off.
  • 00:25:59.070 --> 00:26:00.150
  • What's the edge?
  • 00:26:00.150 --> 00:26:01.250
  • There got to be some level of intoxication.
  • 00:26:01.250 --> 00:26:05.120
  • But watch this, I know Scriptures,
  • 00:26:07.040 --> 00:26:08.180
  • plenty of Scriptures talk about protecting your witness.
  • 00:26:08.180 --> 00:26:12.190
  • And that kings and priests don't take
  • 00:26:14.120 --> 00:26:17.230
  • of wine and strong drinks.
  • 00:26:17.230 --> 00:26:20.190
  • I'm calling me a king and a priest.
  • 00:26:20.190 --> 00:26:24.060
  • So as a king and a priest, I gotta represent my kingship.
  • 00:26:24.060 --> 00:26:28.110
  • And furthermore, somebody who's around me,
  • 00:26:30.100 --> 00:26:33.140
  • if I'm drinking, why, come on and imagine
  • 00:26:33.140 --> 00:26:35.200
  • if you saw me with a glass of wine.
  • 00:26:35.200 --> 00:26:37.160
  • You'd be like, I thought he was a preacher, oh!
  • 00:26:37.160 --> 00:26:41.000
  • OMG, he ain't, he ain't a.

  • Come on.
  • 00:26:49.150 --> 00:26:50.100

  • - Ladies and Gentleman, I believe
  • 00:27:19.030 --> 00:27:20.180
  • it's a greater sin to not get back up and fight again.

  • That's what God wants you to do.
  • 00:27:25.260 --> 00:27:27.080
  • When you fall, he says rise up and go forward.
  • 00:27:27.080 --> 00:27:30.240
  • (clapping)
  • 00:27:30.240 --> 00:27:32.160
