  • ROBERT MORRIS: Here's whatI'm trying to tell you.
  • 00:00:01.560 --> 00:00:02.027
  • Satan is lying to you!
  • 00:00:02.127 --> 00:00:04.596
  • He had his dominion takenaway 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:00:04.696 --> 00:00:08.067
  • yet his life has been prolongedfor a season and time.
  • 00:00:08.167 --> 00:00:11.370
  • But, he has nomore dominion!
  • 00:00:11.470 --> 00:00:14.206
  • No more dominion!
  • 00:00:14.306 --> 00:00:15.808
  • ♪ ♪
  • 00:00:15.908 --> 00:00:29.855
  • ROBERT: So, we'll get to John 14in a moment, but before we do,
  • 00:00:29.955 --> 00:00:33.592
  • let me read you just a fewother Scriptures, all right?
  • 00:00:33.692 --> 00:00:37.563
  • When Satan tempted Jesus,he said this to Him in Luke 4:6.
  • 00:00:37.663 --> 00:00:43.635
  • "And the devil said to Him,"All this authority
  • 00:00:43.735 --> 00:00:47.172
  • I will give You,and their glory,
  • 00:00:47.272 --> 00:00:49.775
  • for this has been delivered",and I put in parentheses,
  • 00:00:49.875 --> 00:00:54.480
  • they're given over.
  • 00:00:54.580 --> 00:00:56.348
  • That's what the worddelivered means.
  • 00:00:56.448 --> 00:00:57.983
  • "This has been given over to me,and I give it
  • 00:00:58.083 --> 00:01:01.620
  • to whomever I wish."
  • 00:01:01.720 --> 00:01:02.888
  • Now, I'm gonna have to gothrough a lot of Scripture,
  • 00:01:02.988 --> 00:01:04.790
  • so I'm just gonna have tomake it quick today with you.
  • 00:01:04.890 --> 00:01:08.160
  • But, who gavethe dominion to the enemy?
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:13.132
  • Well, Adam and Eve did,because God gave them dominion.
  • 00:01:13.232 --> 00:01:16.401
  • Genesis 1:28, "Then God blessedthem", that's Adam and Eve,
  • 00:01:16.502 --> 00:01:20.506
  • "and God said to them,'Be fruitful and multiply,
  • 00:01:20.606 --> 00:01:22.708
  • fill the earth and subdue it,have dominion
  • 00:01:22.808 --> 00:01:26.044
  • over the fish of the sea,the birds of the air,
  • 00:01:26.145 --> 00:01:28.113
  • over every living thingthat moves on the earth.'"
  • 00:01:28.213 --> 00:01:30.549
  • So, God gives dominionto Adam and Eve.
  • 00:01:30.649 --> 00:01:33.852
  • Adam and Eve hand it overto the enemy when they sin.
  • 00:01:33.952 --> 00:01:39.057
  • And then, Satan says to Jesus,I've got all the authority,
  • 00:01:39.158 --> 00:01:43.595
  • I've got all the dominion.I can give it to anyone I want.
  • 00:01:43.695 --> 00:01:45.697
  • Jesus doesn't argue with him,but after the ascension --
  • 00:01:45.797 --> 00:01:50.169
  • I mean, pardon me,after the resurrection
  • 00:01:50.269 --> 00:01:53.138
  • before the ascension,after the resurrection,
  • 00:01:53.238 --> 00:01:54.473
  • what we callthe Great Commission,
  • 00:01:54.573 --> 00:01:57.176
  • Jesus makes this statement:
  • 00:01:57.276 --> 00:02:00.445
  • Matthew 28:18, "And Jesuscame and spoke to them, saying,
  • 00:02:00.546 --> 00:02:03.549
  • "All authority hasbeen given to Me
  • 00:02:03.649 --> 00:02:08.220
  • in heaven and earth."
  • 00:02:08.320 --> 00:02:09.855
  • Here's what Iwant to show you.
  • 00:02:09.955 --> 00:02:13.725
  • We don't have to wait forthe second coming for Jesus
  • 00:02:13.825 --> 00:02:18.263
  • to get authority back.
  • 00:02:18.363 --> 00:02:21.133
  • He got it backon the first Easter,
  • 00:02:21.233 --> 00:02:24.636
  • and I'm going to show yousomething that happened
  • 00:02:24.736 --> 00:02:27.072
  • on the first Easter day,that day, the day He arose,
  • 00:02:27.172 --> 00:02:31.376
  • Resurrection Day,that many people never see.
  • 00:02:31.476 --> 00:02:34.980
  • But I'm gonna have to maybeblow away a little bit
  • 00:02:35.080 --> 00:02:40.953
  • of something you'veseen before, or show you
  • 00:02:41.053 --> 00:02:43.021
  • a little different meaningto John 14, 15, and 16, okay?
  • 00:02:43.121 --> 00:02:47.192
  • So, John 14, 15, and 16is the conversation Jesus
  • 00:02:47.292 --> 00:02:52.631
  • is having with His disciplesat the Last Supper.
  • 00:02:52.731 --> 00:02:58.136
  • John 14:1, "Let notyour heart be troubled.
  • 00:02:58.237 --> 00:03:03.375
  • You believe in God,believe also in Me.
  • 00:03:03.475 --> 00:03:05.978
  • In My Father's houseare many mansions."
  • 00:03:06.078 --> 00:03:08.814
  • Now, the only two versionsthat use this word
  • 00:03:08.914 --> 00:03:11.016
  • are New King Jamesand Old King James.
  • 00:03:11.116 --> 00:03:13.752
  • It means dwelling place.
  • 00:03:13.852 --> 00:03:15.787
  • So, where My Father dwells,there are many dwelling places.
  • 00:03:15.887 --> 00:03:20.292
  • "If it were not so,I would have told you,
  • 00:03:20.392 --> 00:03:21.793
  • and I go to preparea place for you."
  • 00:03:21.893 --> 00:03:23.695
  • Now, hear me, all right?
  • 00:03:23.795 --> 00:03:25.564
  • Just for a moment,just follow me, please,
  • 00:03:25.664 --> 00:03:28.200
  • because you will see thisby the time we start
  • 00:03:28.300 --> 00:03:30.702
  • giving this message.
  • 00:03:30.802 --> 00:03:31.970
  • He says in Verse 1 and 2,I've got to go
  • 00:03:32.070 --> 00:03:34.273
  • prepare a place for you.
  • 00:03:34.373 --> 00:03:35.540
  • Just for a moment,let's forget about --
  • 00:03:35.641 --> 00:03:37.509
  • I'll pretend thisis a hammer for a moment,
  • 00:03:37.609 --> 00:03:39.244
  • that Jesus is up in heavenbuilding mansions,
  • 00:03:39.344 --> 00:03:42.981
  • you know, for all of us,and every time
  • 00:03:43.081 --> 00:03:45.384
  • someone gets saved,Jesus is like,
  • 00:03:45.484 --> 00:03:47.319
  • another mansion, you know?
  • 00:03:47.419 --> 00:03:48.720
  • And as soon as He gets allof the mansions done,
  • 00:03:48.820 --> 00:03:51.423
  • then He's coming back.
  • 00:03:51.523 --> 00:03:52.924
  • All right, let's forgetabout the mansions
  • 00:03:53.025 --> 00:03:54.359
  • for a moment, and let'sthink spiritually.
  • 00:03:54.459 --> 00:03:57.863
  • Is He saying youcan't have a relationship
  • 00:03:57.963 --> 00:04:01.199
  • with the Father untilI take care of something,
  • 00:04:01.300 --> 00:04:06.738
  • and I will go and presentmyself as an offering,
  • 00:04:06.838 --> 00:04:12.844
  • so that your sincan be taken care of
  • 00:04:12.944 --> 00:04:14.813
  • so you and the Fathercan have a relationship,
  • 00:04:14.913 --> 00:04:17.215
  • because you can'thave a relationship
  • 00:04:17.316 --> 00:04:18.483
  • with the Father yet?All right?
  • 00:04:18.583 --> 00:04:19.851
  • So let's just keep reading,and watch what He's telling
  • 00:04:19.951 --> 00:04:22.888
  • His disciples.
  • 00:04:22.988 --> 00:04:24.089
  • Verse 25, "These thingsI have spoken to you
  • 00:04:24.189 --> 00:04:28.026
  • while being present with you.
  • 00:04:28.126 --> 00:04:32.798
  • But the Helper,the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:04:32.898 --> 00:04:35.100
  • whom the Fatherwill send in My name,
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:38.036
  • He will teach you all things,and bring to your remembrance
  • 00:04:38.136 --> 00:04:41.540
  • all things that I said to you.
  • 00:04:41.640 --> 00:04:43.675
  • Peace I leave with you,and My peace I give to you,
  • 00:04:43.775 --> 00:04:48.347
  • not as the world givesdo I give to you.
  • 00:04:48.447 --> 00:04:50.515
  • Let not your heart be troubled,"
  • 00:04:50.615 --> 00:04:53.218
  • same thing we read in Verse 1,
  • 00:04:53.318 --> 00:04:54.419
  • "neither let it be afraid.
  • 00:04:54.519 --> 00:04:56.355
  • You have heard Me say,'I am going away
  • 00:04:56.455 --> 00:04:59.424
  • and coming back to you.'"
  • 00:04:59.524 --> 00:05:00.959
  • Now again, just fora moment, humor me.
  • 00:05:01.059 --> 00:05:03.829
  • Could He be talkingabout the death
  • 00:05:03.929 --> 00:05:05.931
  • and the resurrection?
  • 00:05:06.031 --> 00:05:08.900
  • I'm going away,but I'm coming back.
  • 00:05:09.000 --> 00:05:12.170
  • Watch this.
  • 00:05:12.270 --> 00:05:13.538
  • "If you loved Me, you wouldrejoice because I said,
  • 00:05:13.638 --> 00:05:16.641
  • "I am going to the Father."
  • 00:05:16.742 --> 00:05:18.910
  • So, I've got to go preparea place for you
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:20.545
  • so you can have a relationshipwith the Father.
  • 00:05:20.645 --> 00:05:22.414
  • "For my Father isgreater than I."
  • 00:05:22.514 --> 00:05:23.682
  • Verse 29 is the key that weknow that He's talking about
  • 00:05:23.782 --> 00:05:29.821
  • the death and the resurrection,not the second coming,
  • 00:05:29.921 --> 00:05:33.492
  • in this passage.Here's why.
  • 00:05:33.592 --> 00:05:34.926
  • Watch Verse 29 carefully.
  • 00:05:35.026 --> 00:05:36.928
  • "And now I have told youbefore it comes,
  • 00:05:37.028 --> 00:05:41.233
  • that when it does come to pass,you may believe."
  • 00:05:41.333 --> 00:05:47.038
  • Listen, no one is gonna havea problem believing
  • 00:05:47.139 --> 00:05:51.576
  • after the second coming,not even the atheists,
  • 00:05:51.676 --> 00:05:59.317
  • and I've got a Scripture on it.
  • 00:05:59.418 --> 00:06:01.052
  • "Ever knee will bow andevery tongue will confess
  • 00:06:01.153 --> 00:06:06.057
  • that Jesus Christ is Lord to theglory of the Father." All right.
  • 00:06:06.158 --> 00:06:09.194
  • John 16:16, "A littlewhile," a little while,
  • 00:06:09.294 --> 00:06:16.635
  • "and you will not see Me.
  • 00:06:16.735 --> 00:06:19.070
  • And again, a little while,and you will see Me,
  • 00:06:19.171 --> 00:06:23.208
  • because I go to the Father."
  • 00:06:23.308 --> 00:06:24.476
  • Now, look at mejust for a moment.
  • 00:06:24.576 --> 00:06:25.877
  • It makes a lot more sense.
  • 00:06:25.977 --> 00:06:26.945
  • In just a few hours,He's going to be delivered
  • 00:06:27.045 --> 00:06:29.247
  • over to the scribesand the Pharisees for trial,
  • 00:06:29.347 --> 00:06:33.018
  • and then three days,He's going to rise again.
  • 00:06:33.118 --> 00:06:34.820
  • It makes a lot more sense forHim to say, "a little while",
  • 00:06:34.920 --> 00:06:37.456
  • than if He's talkingabout the second coming
  • 00:06:37.556 --> 00:06:39.124
  • and He's talking aboutthousands of years.
  • 00:06:39.224 --> 00:06:42.627
  • "A little while", less thana day, and you won't see Me.
  • 00:06:42.727 --> 00:06:46.631
  • And then in just a few days,"a little while",
  • 00:06:46.731 --> 00:06:49.100
  • you'll see Me again.
  • 00:06:49.201 --> 00:06:51.136
  • "Then some of His disciplessaid among themselves,
  • 00:06:51.236 --> 00:06:53.405
  • "What is this that He saysto us, "A little while,
  • 00:06:53.505 --> 00:06:55.540
  • and you will not see Me,and again, a little while
  • 00:06:55.640 --> 00:06:57.509
  • and you will see me", and"because I go to the Father?"
  • 00:06:57.609 --> 00:07:00.712
  • They said therefore,"What is this that He says,
  • 00:07:00.812 --> 00:07:02.547
  • "A little while?"
  • 00:07:02.647 --> 00:07:03.715
  • I don't know if you allhave ever noticed,
  • 00:07:03.815 --> 00:07:04.883
  • but the disciples were thick.
  • 00:07:04.983 --> 00:07:06.551
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:07:06.651 --> 00:07:09.888
  • "We do not knowwhat He is saying."
  • 00:07:09.988 --> 00:07:13.658
  • Verse 19, "Now Jesus knewthey desired to ask Him,
  • 00:07:13.758 --> 00:07:18.463
  • so He said to them, "Are youinquiring among yourselves
  • 00:07:18.563 --> 00:07:20.832
  • about what I said,"A little while,
  • 00:07:20.932 --> 00:07:23.235
  • and you will not see Me,and again a little while,
  • 00:07:23.335 --> 00:07:25.103
  • and you will see Me?"
  • 00:07:25.203 --> 00:07:26.605
  • Most assuredly I say to you",watch, "that you will weep
  • 00:07:26.705 --> 00:07:29.508
  • and lament."Now listen to me.
  • 00:07:29.608 --> 00:07:31.543
  • Again, the classicinterpretation of this
  • 00:07:31.643 --> 00:07:33.478
  • was that He ascendedand He's coming back again.
  • 00:07:33.578 --> 00:07:37.048
  • Okay, they did not weep andlament when Jesus ascended,
  • 00:07:37.148 --> 00:07:40.519
  • they wept and lamented whenHe was crucified. Watch this.
  • 00:07:40.619 --> 00:07:45.624
  • "You will weep and lament,but the world will
  • 00:07:45.724 --> 00:07:49.461
  • rejoice." The world rejoicedwhen He was crucified,
  • 00:07:49.561 --> 00:07:51.696
  • not when He ascended.Watch this.
  • 00:07:51.796 --> 00:07:53.465
  • "And you will be sorrowful."
  • 00:07:53.565 --> 00:07:55.300
  • They were, whenHe was crucified. Watch.
  • 00:07:55.400 --> 00:07:57.903
  • "But your sorrow willbe turned into joy."
  • 00:07:58.003 --> 00:08:02.140
  • That's what happenedin the resurrection.
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:03.775
  • Then He talks about a womangiving birth, Verse 21.
  • 00:08:03.875 --> 00:08:06.011
  • Look at Verse 22.
  • 00:08:06.111 --> 00:08:07.646
  • "Therefore you now havesorrow"...watch this!
  • 00:08:07.746 --> 00:08:11.449
  • He's talking to Hisdisciples, listen!
  • 00:08:11.550 --> 00:08:14.786
  • "But I will see you again."I will see you again.
  • 00:08:14.886 --> 00:08:20.825
  • "And your heart will rejoice,and your joy no one
  • 00:08:20.926 --> 00:08:23.495
  • will take away from you."
  • 00:08:23.595 --> 00:08:24.362
  • Are you all following me?
  • 00:08:24.462 --> 00:08:26.131
  • He's talking -- you've gotto take it in context.
  • 00:08:26.231 --> 00:08:27.999
  • He's talking tothe disciples.
  • 00:08:28.099 --> 00:08:29.000
  • I have to go away.
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:30.769
  • I have to fix something,because you can't have
  • 00:08:30.869 --> 00:08:32.437
  • a relationship with the Father,but I'm coming back.
  • 00:08:32.537 --> 00:08:35.373
  • It's just gonna be a littlewhile, not gonna be long.
  • 00:08:35.473 --> 00:08:38.343
  • And I'm giving you two clues,peace and the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:08:38.443 --> 00:08:40.812
  • and when I come back, I'll talkabout that, too. All right?
  • 00:08:40.912 --> 00:08:43.448
  • So now, let's goto Resurrection Day.
  • 00:08:43.548 --> 00:08:45.383
  • John 20:1, "Now the firstday of the week,
  • 00:08:45.483 --> 00:08:48.920
  • Mary Magdalene wentto the tomb early,
  • 00:08:49.020 --> 00:08:51.690
  • while it was still dark,and saw that the stone
  • 00:08:51.790 --> 00:08:53.758
  • had been taken awayfrom the tomb."
  • 00:08:53.858 --> 00:08:55.260
  • Now, this is in the morning.Look at Verse 11.
  • 00:08:55.360 --> 00:08:58.830
  • "Mary stood outsideby the tomb weeping,
  • 00:08:58.930 --> 00:09:00.732
  • and as she wept, she stoopeddown and looked into the tomb.
  • 00:09:00.832 --> 00:09:03.068
  • She saw two angels in whitesitting, one at the head
  • 00:09:03.168 --> 00:09:06.638
  • and the other at the feet, wherethe body of Jesus had lain."
  • 00:09:06.738 --> 00:09:10.008
  • I don't have timeto go into all of that,
  • 00:09:10.108 --> 00:09:11.376
  • but that's a pictureof the Ark of the Covenant
  • 00:09:11.476 --> 00:09:13.812
  • in the Old Testament
  • 00:09:13.912 --> 00:09:15.080
  • with the two angelsand God in the middle.
  • 00:09:15.180 --> 00:09:19.851
  • That was exciting.Okay, let's just keep going.
  • 00:09:19.951 --> 00:09:23.488
  • "Then they said to her,'Woman, why are you weeping?'
  • 00:09:23.588 --> 00:09:26.224
  • She said to them, 'Becausethey have taken away my Lord,
  • 00:09:26.324 --> 00:09:28.660
  • and I do not knowwhere they have laid Him.'"
  • 00:09:28.760 --> 00:09:30.295
  • Now, look at this verse andsee how strange this verse is!
  • 00:09:30.395 --> 00:09:34.833
  • "Now when she had said this,she turned around
  • 00:09:34.933 --> 00:09:38.370
  • and saw Jesus standing there,and did not know
  • 00:09:38.470 --> 00:09:44.943
  • that it was Jesus."That is strange.
  • 00:09:45.043 --> 00:09:48.680
  • She had traveled with Himfor over 2 years,
  • 00:09:48.780 --> 00:09:51.883
  • most believe between 2-1/2and 3 years of His ministry.
  • 00:09:51.983 --> 00:09:55.020
  • His ministry was reallyabout 3-1/2 years.
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:57.455
  • We say 3 years, but it wasa little over 3, about 3-1/2.
  • 00:09:57.555 --> 00:10:00.792
  • She started with Him fromalmost the very beginning,
  • 00:10:00.892 --> 00:10:03.828
  • and she traveled with Him.
  • 00:10:03.928 --> 00:10:05.463
  • John 8:3 says that a groupof women traveled
  • 00:10:05.563 --> 00:10:09.934
  • with Jesus and the disciples.
  • 00:10:10.035 --> 00:10:11.503
  • She's one of them.Okay.
  • 00:10:11.603 --> 00:10:12.570
  • So, there's somethingdifferent about
  • 00:10:12.671 --> 00:10:14.105
  • His appearance right now.
  • 00:10:14.205 --> 00:10:16.107
  • That should cause an alarmwhen we're reading the Bible.
  • 00:10:16.207 --> 00:10:18.910
  • That should makeus say, I wonder why
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:20.512
  • she didn't recognize Him?Okay?
  • 00:10:20.612 --> 00:10:22.514
  • The next verse, to me,it sounds even stranger.
  • 00:10:22.614 --> 00:10:26.618
  • "Jesus said to her, 'Woman,why are you weeping?
  • 00:10:26.718 --> 00:10:29.154
  • Whom are you seeking?'
  • 00:10:29.254 --> 00:10:30.789
  • She didn't recognizeHis voice, either.
  • 00:10:30.889 --> 00:10:34.159
  • Now, watch this!
  • 00:10:34.259 --> 00:10:35.293
  • If you don't thinkthis is strange,
  • 00:10:35.393 --> 00:10:37.195
  • I don't know howto help you. Listen.
  • 00:10:37.295 --> 00:10:40.198
  • "She, supposing Himto be the gardener."
  • 00:10:40.298 --> 00:10:46.404
  • She thought He wasthe gardener --
  • 00:10:46.504 --> 00:10:48.073
  • the gardener!
  • 00:10:48.173 --> 00:10:50.175
  • "She said, 'Sir, if you havecarried Him away,
  • 00:10:50.275 --> 00:10:51.743
  • tell me where you've laid Him,and I'll take Him away.'
  • 00:10:51.843 --> 00:10:54.446
  • Jesus said to her, "Mary!"
  • 00:10:54.546 --> 00:10:56.614
  • Now, He does something thatopens her eyes, so she can see.
  • 00:10:56.715 --> 00:11:00.752
  • "She turned andsaid, 'Rabboni!'
  • 00:11:00.852 --> 00:11:02.220
  • (which is to say, Teacher)."Watch this, though.
  • 00:11:02.320 --> 00:11:03.722
  • "Jesus said to her,"Do not cling to Me".
  • 00:11:03.822 --> 00:11:06.257
  • This word, cling,it's a Greek word.
  • 00:11:06.357 --> 00:11:08.960
  • It's in the Bible 36 times.
  • 00:11:09.060 --> 00:11:13.131
  • In the Authorized Version,it's always translated "touch."
  • 00:11:13.231 --> 00:11:16.101
  • It's never translated "cling",it's always "touch."
  • 00:11:16.201 --> 00:11:18.303
  • It's the same wordwhere the woman said,
  • 00:11:18.403 --> 00:11:20.739
  • "If I can just touchthe hem of His garment."
  • 00:11:20.839 --> 00:11:23.475
  • So, it wasn't hold onto,it was just touch.
  • 00:11:23.575 --> 00:11:25.877
  • And Jesus turned around andHe used the very same word
  • 00:11:25.977 --> 00:11:28.146
  • and said, "Who touched me?"
  • 00:11:28.246 --> 00:11:29.914
  • The disciples said, Lord,a whole bunch of people.
  • 00:11:30.014 --> 00:11:31.716
  • You're sayingwho touched me?
  • 00:11:31.816 --> 00:11:32.751
  • He said, somebodytouched me.
  • 00:11:32.851 --> 00:11:34.085
  • That's the same word.
  • 00:11:34.185 --> 00:11:35.653
  • Okay, so here's what Heactually said to her --
  • 00:11:35.754 --> 00:11:37.255
  • don't touch me.Don't touch me.
  • 00:11:37.355 --> 00:11:41.092
  • Now, watch yourBibles carefully.
  • 00:11:41.192 --> 00:11:43.695
  • "For I have not yetascended to My Father."
  • 00:11:43.795 --> 00:11:49.834
  • Now again, we understandthat 40 days later, He ascended.
  • 00:11:49.934 --> 00:11:54.038
  • But I'm telling you,something happened
  • 00:11:54.139 --> 00:11:55.306
  • on Resurrection Day that wemiss, that we need to catch,
  • 00:11:55.406 --> 00:11:59.043
  • because it changeseverything.
  • 00:11:59.144 --> 00:12:01.780
  • Listen, does your Bible sayHe says, "I have not yet
  • 00:12:01.880 --> 00:12:05.083
  • ascended to My Father"?Did you see that?
  • 00:12:05.183 --> 00:12:07.318
  • And, don't touch me.Don't touch me.
  • 00:12:07.418 --> 00:12:10.021
  • Then He says, "But go to Mybrethren", the thick-headed
  • 00:12:10.121 --> 00:12:12.891
  • ones, "and say to them,"I am ascending" right now.
  • 00:12:12.991 --> 00:12:21.266
  • Look at that,present tense, I am.
  • 00:12:21.366 --> 00:12:23.701
  • "I am ascending"...now,oh, this is so good!
  • 00:12:23.802 --> 00:12:27.172
  • This is so good!You'd better get excited!
  • 00:12:27.272 --> 00:12:29.107
  • "I am ascending to My Father",listen to this,
  • 00:12:29.207 --> 00:12:33.044
  • "and your Father."
  • 00:12:33.144 --> 00:12:35.113
  • [Applause]
  • 00:12:35.213 --> 00:12:39.384
  • "To My God,and to your God."
  • 00:12:39.484 --> 00:12:47.158
  • Now, look down a littlebit later, Verse 19.
  • 00:12:47.258 --> 00:12:50.161
  • "Then, the same dayat evening", okay, stop.
  • 00:12:50.261 --> 00:12:54.966
  • Where's He been all day?
  • 00:12:55.066 --> 00:12:59.103
  • Where did He sayHe was going?
  • 00:12:59.204 --> 00:13:01.539
  • To the Father.
  • 00:13:01.639 --> 00:13:05.109
  • Your Bible just said,"The same day at evening." Okay.
  • 00:13:05.210 --> 00:13:09.547
  • Your Bible just said thatMary sees Him in the morning,
  • 00:13:09.647 --> 00:13:12.684
  • and He says, don't touch me.
  • 00:13:12.784 --> 00:13:14.519
  • Don't touch me.
  • 00:13:14.619 --> 00:13:15.887
  • Don't touch me.
  • 00:13:15.987 --> 00:13:18.623
  • "I have not yet ascended toMy Father", but go tell
  • 00:13:18.723 --> 00:13:24.262
  • the disciples I am ascendingto the Father right now.
  • 00:13:24.362 --> 00:13:27.999
  • You go tell them that.
  • 00:13:28.099 --> 00:13:29.267
  • And "Then the same dayat evening", watch,
  • 00:13:29.367 --> 00:13:33.838
  • "being the firstday of the week,
  • 00:13:33.938 --> 00:13:35.540
  • when the doors wereshut where the disciples
  • 00:13:35.640 --> 00:13:37.041
  • were assembledfor fear of the Jews,
  • 00:13:37.141 --> 00:13:39.077
  • Jesus came and stoodin the midst,
  • 00:13:39.177 --> 00:13:41.045
  • and said to them", what?
  • 00:13:41.145 --> 00:13:45.149
  • What two words did Iask you to remember?
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:48.086
  • Peace and the HolySpirit, right?
  • 00:13:48.186 --> 00:13:49.821
  • "Peace be to you."
  • 00:13:49.921 --> 00:13:52.757
  • When He had said this",watch this, "He showed them
  • 00:13:52.857 --> 00:13:56.995
  • His hands and His side."
  • 00:13:57.095 --> 00:14:01.165
  • By the way, just a few dayslater he actually said
  • 00:14:01.266 --> 00:14:03.067
  • to Thomas, "Stretchyour hand here."
  • 00:14:03.167 --> 00:14:06.437
  • Let me paraphrasethat for you --
  • 00:14:06.537 --> 00:14:07.705
  • touch me.
  • 00:14:07.805 --> 00:14:09.807
  • Touch me.
  • 00:14:09.908 --> 00:14:10.909
  • That morning, He said toMary, don't touch me,
  • 00:14:11.009 --> 00:14:14.345
  • I haven't ascendedto the Father yet.
  • 00:14:14.445 --> 00:14:16.314
  • Same day at evening, He saysto the disciples, touch me.
  • 00:14:16.414 --> 00:14:21.119
  • Are you all, are you all?
  • 00:14:21.219 --> 00:14:22.887
  • If you're not getting excited,I don't know how to --
  • 00:14:22.987 --> 00:14:24.689
  • I don't know.Your wood's wet.
  • 00:14:24.789 --> 00:14:26.291
  • I can't get your fire lit.
  • 00:14:26.391 --> 00:14:28.559
  • This is the most amazingthing I've ever seen
  • 00:14:28.660 --> 00:14:30.295
  • in the Scripture,I'm telling you.
  • 00:14:30.395 --> 00:14:32.363
  • He says, I haven't gone tothe Father yet, but I'm going.
  • 00:14:32.463 --> 00:14:35.767
  • Same day, He says to thedisciples, touch me. Peace.
  • 00:14:35.867 --> 00:14:39.737
  • "Then the disciples wereglad when they saw the Lord.
  • 00:14:39.837 --> 00:14:41.539
  • So Jesus said to them,"Peace to you."
  • 00:14:41.639 --> 00:14:43.641
  • Now, I love this.
  • 00:14:43.741 --> 00:14:45.143
  • "As the Father has sent Me."
  • 00:14:45.243 --> 00:14:49.280
  • He's been in the presenceof the Father all day.
  • 00:14:49.380 --> 00:14:52.583
  • "I also send you."
  • 00:14:52.684 --> 00:14:54.752
  • And then when He said this,"He breathed on them and said,
  • 00:14:54.852 --> 00:14:57.155
  • "Receive the Holy Spirit."I'm going away.
  • 00:14:57.255 --> 00:15:04.729
  • Don't be troubled, it's justgonna be a little while,
  • 00:15:04.829 --> 00:15:07.498
  • just a few days, guys.
  • 00:15:07.598 --> 00:15:09.567
  • But I've got to getit right for you,
  • 00:15:09.667 --> 00:15:11.202
  • so you can dwellwith the Father,
  • 00:15:11.302 --> 00:15:12.403
  • because you can't have arelationship with the Father.
  • 00:15:12.503 --> 00:15:13.905
  • But, I'll go to the Fatherand I'll make it right.
  • 00:15:14.005 --> 00:15:17.642
  • I'll present myselfas a sin offering.
  • 00:15:17.742 --> 00:15:20.445
  • He sees Mary and He says,don't touch me,
  • 00:15:20.545 --> 00:15:22.347
  • I haven't goneto the Father yet.
  • 00:15:22.447 --> 00:15:23.815
  • I haven't ascendedto the Father yet.
  • 00:15:23.915 --> 00:15:25.383
  • That same day,in the evening, he says,
  • 00:15:25.483 --> 00:15:28.486
  • you can touch me now,because the Father has sent Me,
  • 00:15:28.586 --> 00:15:33.591
  • and I told you thisbefore it happened.
  • 00:15:33.691 --> 00:15:38.363
  • Do you all rememberthat verse?
  • 00:15:38.463 --> 00:15:39.630
  • "I told you thisbefore it happened,
  • 00:15:39.731 --> 00:15:42.633
  • so that when it happened,you would believe."
  • 00:15:42.734 --> 00:15:46.170
  • Peace and the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:15:46.270 --> 00:15:49.007
  • Now, here's a versethat we miss.
  • 00:15:49.107 --> 00:15:54.512
  • Hebrews 9:12 says,
  • 00:15:54.612 --> 00:15:58.016
  • "Not with the bloodof goats and calves,
  • 00:15:58.116 --> 00:16:01.152
  • but with His own blood Heentered the Most Holy Place",
  • 00:16:01.252 --> 00:16:08.893
  • that's where the Father is,"once for all",
  • 00:16:08.993 --> 00:16:12.063
  • and you should get veryexcited over these words,
  • 00:16:12.163 --> 00:16:14.399
  • "having obtainedeternal redemption."
  • 00:16:14.499 --> 00:16:17.902
  • [Applause]
  • 00:16:18.002 --> 00:16:20.705
  • Having obtainedeternal redemption!
  • 00:16:20.805 --> 00:16:28.312
  • So, Ephesians then tellsus that He first descended
  • 00:16:28.413 --> 00:16:31.115
  • into the lowerparts of the earth.
  • 00:16:31.215 --> 00:16:33.217
  • He descended, that's Ephesians,that's during the three days.
  • 00:16:33.317 --> 00:16:36.054
  • That's when He'sin the tomb.
  • 00:16:36.154 --> 00:16:37.655
  • And then it says, basically,just giving you
  • 00:16:37.755 --> 00:16:39.924
  • the short version, He walks upto the devil and says,
  • 00:16:40.024 --> 00:16:42.093
  • give me the keys,I'm taking it back.
  • 00:16:42.193 --> 00:16:46.998
  • And then it says,"He leads captivity captive."
  • 00:16:47.098 --> 00:16:49.400
  • That's referring tothe Old Testament saints.
  • 00:16:49.500 --> 00:16:51.135
  • They were not in torment,but they were in a place
  • 00:16:51.235 --> 00:16:53.371
  • of waiting.
  • 00:16:53.471 --> 00:16:54.472
  • Now, wouldn't it be coolif somewhere in the Bible
  • 00:16:54.572 --> 00:17:00.978
  • there was a verse-by-versedescription of what happened
  • 00:17:01.079 --> 00:17:06.317
  • from Sunday morningto Sunday night,
  • 00:17:06.417 --> 00:17:09.287
  • when Jesus actually enteredthe presence of the Father?
  • 00:17:09.387 --> 00:17:13.291
  • Wouldn't that be cool?
  • 00:17:13.391 --> 00:17:16.461
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:16.561 --> 00:17:19.497
  • See, the problem is thatthere are some things
  • 00:17:19.597 --> 00:17:21.666
  • we don't understandabout the Bible,
  • 00:17:21.766 --> 00:17:24.902
  • but it doesn't makethe Bible untrue,
  • 00:17:25.002 --> 00:17:26.270
  • it just meanswe don't understand.
  • 00:17:26.370 --> 00:17:28.172
  • So, Daniel talksabout some things
  • 00:17:28.272 --> 00:17:30.908
  • that are still gonna happenin the Book of Revelation,
  • 00:17:31.008 --> 00:17:33.344
  • but sometimes when we seesomething in Daniel,
  • 00:17:33.444 --> 00:17:35.279
  • we think, oh,that's in the future.
  • 00:17:35.379 --> 00:17:37.715
  • I just want to convince you morethan anything that Jesus
  • 00:17:37.815 --> 00:17:41.119
  • isn't getting dominionback one day,
  • 00:17:41.219 --> 00:17:43.454
  • He already got it back.
  • 00:17:43.554 --> 00:17:45.123
  • That's what I'm tryingto convince you of.
  • 00:17:45.223 --> 00:17:46.924
  • So, I'm gonna show you Daniel,but before I show you Daniel,
  • 00:17:47.024 --> 00:17:49.627
  • I have to show youa Scripture in John.
  • 00:17:49.727 --> 00:17:51.496
  • Now, we startedin John 14, all right?
  • 00:17:51.596 --> 00:17:53.531
  • In John 12, Jesus madethis statement in Verse 31.
  • 00:17:53.631 --> 00:17:57.335
  • "Now"...now.
  • 00:17:57.435 --> 00:18:02.773
  • I hate to ask youto repeat stuff,
  • 00:18:02.874 --> 00:18:04.041
  • because I don't want youto think you're in class,
  • 00:18:04.142 --> 00:18:05.710
  • or some of you have very badmemories about school,
  • 00:18:05.810 --> 00:18:08.479
  • I don't know.
  • 00:18:08.579 --> 00:18:09.480
  • But, could you justsay that word, now?
  • 00:18:09.580 --> 00:18:11.983
  • Okay, not in 2.000 years.
  • 00:18:12.083 --> 00:18:16.220
  • Right now, "Is thejudgment of this world.
  • 00:18:16.320 --> 00:18:22.326
  • Now the ruler of thisworld will be cast out." Now.
  • 00:18:22.426 --> 00:18:29.233
  • Here's what He's saying.
  • 00:18:29.333 --> 00:18:31.435
  • Guys, I'm aboutto take it back.
  • 00:18:31.536 --> 00:18:34.305
  • What we gave Adam and Eveand they lost,
  • 00:18:34.405 --> 00:18:36.140
  • I'm taking it back, legally.I'm going to take it back.
  • 00:18:36.240 --> 00:18:38.843
  • So, here's what happened.
  • 00:18:38.943 --> 00:18:41.145
  • It's in Daniel 7:9.
  • 00:18:41.245 --> 00:18:44.315
  • "I watched until throneswere put in place."
  • 00:18:44.415 --> 00:18:49.654
  • Now, this next part may sendchills up your spine, literally.
  • 00:18:49.754 --> 00:18:53.224
  • "And the Ancientof Days was seated."
  • 00:18:53.324 --> 00:18:59.130
  • Where did Jesussay He was going?
  • 00:18:59.230 --> 00:19:01.732
  • To the Father.This is the Father.
  • 00:19:01.832 --> 00:19:07.805
  • "His garment waswhite as snow."
  • 00:19:07.905 --> 00:19:10.841
  • I just can't even imaginethat we're going to get
  • 00:19:16.847 --> 00:19:18.382
  • to see God one day.
  • 00:19:18.482 --> 00:19:22.320
  • "And the hair of His headwas like pure wool.
  • 00:19:22.420 --> 00:19:26.224
  • His throne was a fiery flame,its wheels a burning fire.
  • 00:19:26.324 --> 00:19:31.996
  • A fiery stream issued andcame forth from before Him.
  • 00:19:32.096 --> 00:19:35.533
  • A thousand thousandsministered to Him."
  • 00:19:35.633 --> 00:19:37.969
  • That's a million,if you like numbers.
  • 00:19:38.069 --> 00:19:41.005
  • "Ten thousand times tenthousand", that's 100 million,
  • 00:19:41.105 --> 00:19:43.741
  • "stood before Him.
  • 00:19:43.841 --> 00:19:45.042
  • The court was seated,and the books were opened."
  • 00:19:45.142 --> 00:19:47.511
  • Now, that's why we thinkthat that's Revelation.
  • 00:19:47.612 --> 00:19:49.714
  • There's a judgment seat coming,and there's a great white throne
  • 00:19:49.814 --> 00:19:52.650
  • judgment coming,but Jesus said,
  • 00:19:52.750 --> 00:19:54.852
  • "Now is the judgmentof this world."
  • 00:19:54.952 --> 00:19:58.389
  • So, there was a judgmentthat took place
  • 00:19:58.489 --> 00:19:59.957
  • on Resurrection Day.
  • 00:20:00.057 --> 00:20:03.327
  • "I watched then because ofthe sound of the pompous words
  • 00:20:03.427 --> 00:20:05.863
  • which the horn was speaking.
  • 00:20:05.963 --> 00:20:07.064
  • I watched tillthe beast was slain,
  • 00:20:07.164 --> 00:20:09.667
  • and its body destroyedand given to the burning flame."
  • 00:20:09.767 --> 00:20:11.869
  • All right, hold onjust for a moment.
  • 00:20:11.969 --> 00:20:13.070
  • People will say, see, the beast,that's in Revelation.
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:15.573
  • No, listen, in Daniel 7,there are four beasts.
  • 00:20:15.673 --> 00:20:19.543
  • This is just the first one.
  • 00:20:19.644 --> 00:20:20.845
  • And let me tell you what wasdestroyed on Resurrection Day,
  • 00:20:20.945 --> 00:20:24.548
  • 2.000 years ago.Sin was destroyed.
  • 00:20:24.649 --> 00:20:29.287
  • Okay, then watch this.Sin was destroyed.
  • 00:20:29.387 --> 00:20:32.723
  • He destroyed it.
  • 00:20:32.823 --> 00:20:34.125
  • "As for the restof the beasts", watch,
  • 00:20:34.225 --> 00:20:37.728
  • "they had theirdominion taken away,
  • 00:20:37.828 --> 00:20:42.833
  • yet their lives were prolongedfor a season and time."
  • 00:20:42.933 --> 00:20:46.137
  • Here's what I'mtrying to tell you!
  • 00:20:46.237 --> 00:20:47.271
  • Satan is lying to you!
  • 00:20:47.371 --> 00:20:50.174
  • He had his dominion takenaway 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:20:50.274 --> 00:20:53.778
  • yet his life has been prolongedfor a season and time.
  • 00:20:53.878 --> 00:20:57.048
  • But, he has nomore dominion!
  • 00:20:57.148 --> 00:20:59.817
  • No more dominion!
  • 00:20:59.917 --> 00:21:00.985
  • [Applause]
  • 00:21:01.085 --> 00:21:04.989
  • Now, here's Jesus,coming to the Father.
  • 00:21:05.089 --> 00:21:07.258
  • "I was watching in the nightvisions, and behold,
  • 00:21:07.358 --> 00:21:09.960
  • One like the Son of Man",watch this,
  • 00:21:10.061 --> 00:21:12.897
  • "coming withthe clouds of heaven!"
  • 00:21:12.997 --> 00:21:14.999
  • Now, I told you a moment ago,who did He take with Him
  • 00:21:15.099 --> 00:21:18.536
  • to heaven on that day?
  • 00:21:18.636 --> 00:21:19.804
  • The Old Testament saints.
  • 00:21:19.904 --> 00:21:21.172
  • Hebrews 11 lists what wecall the Hall of Faith.
  • 00:21:21.272 --> 00:21:25.142
  • It lists theseOld Testament saints,
  • 00:21:25.242 --> 00:21:26.711
  • and Hebrews 12:1 calls them,"That great cloud of witnesses".
  • 00:21:26.811 --> 00:21:35.853
  • I saw the Son of Man coming,and He had the clouds with Him,
  • 00:21:35.953 --> 00:21:39.724
  • the clouds of heaven with Him,like that great cloud
  • 00:21:39.824 --> 00:21:42.093
  • of witnesses with Him.
  • 00:21:42.193 --> 00:21:43.627
  • "He came to the Ancient of Days,and they brought Him near
  • 00:21:43.728 --> 00:21:48.132
  • before Him.
  • 00:21:48.232 --> 00:21:49.600
  • Then to Him was given dominionand glory and a kingdom,
  • 00:21:49.700 --> 00:21:56.841
  • that all peoples, nations,and languages should serve Him.
  • 00:21:56.941 --> 00:21:59.977
  • His dominion is aneverlasting dominion,
  • 00:22:00.077 --> 00:22:03.013
  • which shall not pass away,and His kingdom
  • 00:22:03.114 --> 00:22:05.816
  • the one which shallnot be destroyed."
  • 00:22:05.916 --> 00:22:08.185
  • That happened2.000 years ago.
  • 00:22:08.285 --> 00:22:10.888
  • [Applause]
  • 00:22:10.988 --> 00:22:14.959
  • When Jesus said to Mary,don't touch me,
  • 00:22:15.059 --> 00:22:22.166
  • because I haven't goneinto the Most Holy Place yet
  • 00:22:22.266 --> 00:22:25.970
  • and offered myself.
  • 00:22:26.070 --> 00:22:30.274
  • Two more verses,Daniel 7:21-22:
  • 00:22:30.374 --> 00:22:33.811
  • "I was watching, and the samehorn was making war
  • 00:22:33.911 --> 00:22:38.048
  • against the saints,and prevailing against them,
  • 00:22:38.149 --> 00:22:44.488
  • until the Ancient of Dayscame in and a judgment
  • 00:22:44.588 --> 00:22:50.027
  • was made in favor ofthe saints of the Most High,
  • 00:22:50.127 --> 00:22:54.765
  • and the time came for the saintsto possess the kingdom."
  • 00:22:54.865 --> 00:23:00.137
  • Here's what happened2.000 years ago.
  • 00:23:00.237 --> 00:23:05.376
  • The Ancient of Dayswalked in, the judge.
  • 00:23:05.476 --> 00:23:11.315
  • He looked at Satanon one side.
  • 00:23:11.415 --> 00:23:15.019
  • He looked at the saintson the other side.
  • 00:23:15.119 --> 00:23:18.656
  • And then He looked at thebloody, bruised, battered,
  • 00:23:18.756 --> 00:23:24.962
  • and beaten body of His Son,and He said, Satan, you lose --
  • 00:23:25.062 --> 00:23:32.336
  • Saints, you win!
  • 00:23:32.436 --> 00:23:34.104
  • [Applause]
  • 00:23:34.205 --> 00:23:41.679
  • I'm telling you,Satan doesn't have dominion
  • 00:23:41.779 --> 00:23:46.050
  • over you anymore,and we don't have to wait
  • 00:23:46.150 --> 00:23:48.352
