  • 00:00:00.090 --> 00:00:01.150
  • ROBERT MORRIS: There are three pillars on which the church
  • 00:00:01.180 --> 00:00:02.150
  • is built: the Word, prayer, and worship.
  • 00:00:02.180 --> 00:00:04.290
  • Every time we come together as a congregation,
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:06.280
  • we're gonna have worship, we're gonna pray,
  • 00:00:07.010 --> 00:00:09.100
  • and we're gonna have the Word.
  • 00:00:09.130 --> 00:00:10.250
  • When you have a quiet time, you should have worship,
  • 00:00:10.280 --> 00:00:12.210
  • you should pray, and you should read the Word.
  • 00:00:12.240 --> 00:00:14.170
  • Music is a major part of our culture
  • 00:00:15.090 --> 00:00:17.170
  • and worship today.
  • 00:00:17.200 --> 00:00:19.020
  • When we worship God, His presence fills our house.
  • 00:00:19.050 --> 00:00:21.290
  • Join my pastor, Robert Morris,
  • 00:00:22.020 --> 00:00:23.170
  • and learn how God has designed us to be instruments for Him.
  • 00:00:23.200 --> 00:00:26.250
  • 00:00:26.280 --> 00:00:40.260
  • ROBERT: All right, I want you to turn to
  • 00:00:41.200 --> 00:00:43.060
  • two passages of Scripture, Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28.
  • 00:00:43.090 --> 00:00:50.010
  • This week, you may kind of wonder where I'm going.
  • 00:00:50.040 --> 00:00:53.220
  • It'll be a little different, but the title of the message is,
  • 00:00:53.250 --> 00:00:56.130
  • "His Instruments".
  • 00:00:56.160 --> 00:00:59.000
  • "His Instruments", and I'm going to talk about instruments,
  • 00:00:59.030 --> 00:01:03.010
  • not just us as instruments, but musical instruments.
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:08.220
  • And I want to know if you've ever thought about how much
  • 00:01:08.250 --> 00:01:11.140
  • of a part music plays in our culture and in our society
  • 00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:17.000
  • and around the world?
  • 00:01:17.030 --> 00:01:18.170
  • And how much of a part music is in our worship services?
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:23.010
  • And worship to God?
  • 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:24.210
  • And so we're going to talk about instruments and I'm going
  • 00:01:24.240 --> 00:01:26.290
  • to take you back, give you a little bit of history.
  • 00:01:27.020 --> 00:01:29.020
  • Biblical history about instruments, alright?
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:32.000
  • So, here's my -- I have three questions for you.
  • 00:01:32.030 --> 00:01:34.090
  • Here's the first question:
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:35.290
  • Why did Satan fall?
  • 00:01:36.020 --> 00:01:39.010
  • Most believers know that Satan is an angel,
  • 00:01:39.040 --> 00:01:42.280
  • but he is a fallen angel, and he fell from heaven
  • 00:01:43.010 --> 00:01:45.150
  • and a third of the angels fell with him.
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:48.040
  • But, why did he fall?
  • 00:01:48.070 --> 00:01:49.190
  • In one word, if you were to say one word, why did he fall?
  • 00:01:49.220 --> 00:01:52.260
  • Now, you might use the word pride, and that's a good word,
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:57.030
  • but actually, I believe that the one word
  • 00:01:57.060 --> 00:01:59.240
  • to describe why Satan fell is worship,
  • 00:01:59.270 --> 00:02:04.040
  • and I want to show it to you in Scripture.
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:05.210
  • In Isaiah 14, beginning in Verse 12,
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:10.150
  • "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:17.150
  • How you are cut down to the ground,
  • 00:02:17.180 --> 00:02:19.180
  • you who weakened the nations!"
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:23.110
  • Now before we go on, let me just say,
  • 00:02:23.140 --> 00:02:25.080
  • you're going to see what we theologians would call
  • 00:02:25.110 --> 00:02:28.090
  • the five "I wills" of Satan,
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:32.170
  • the five things that he said in his heart
  • 00:02:32.200 --> 00:02:36.070
  • that caused him to fall from heaven.
  • 00:02:36.100 --> 00:02:40.040
  • All of these, though, have to do -- I want you to watch
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:43.120
  • -- it will probably just blow you away.
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:46.060
  • All of them have to do with being lifted up, or exalted.
  • 00:02:46.090 --> 00:02:51.150
  • Which would be worship.
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:02:53.050
  • We praise the One Who is the most high.
  • 00:02:53.080 --> 00:02:56.030
  • All of these have to do with worship,
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:57.280
  • so watch how many of these words have to do with being lifted up,
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:03:01.290
  • or exalted, or high, or above, all right?
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:05.260
  • So, Verse 13.
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.180
  • "For you", talking to Lucifer now,
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:09.100
  • "you have said in your heart, I will ascend,"
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:13.250
  • well, that's go up.
  • 00:03:13.280 --> 00:03:15.100
  • I want to go up higher, "into heaven."
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:18.190
  • Remember, he was already in heaven.
  • 00:03:18.220 --> 00:03:20.180
  • He wanted to go higher into heaven.
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:23.030
  • "I will exalt,"
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:24.190
  • there's a word to talk about being lifted up,
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:27.080
  • "exalt my throne above", not below, above, "the stars of God.
  • 00:03:27.110 --> 00:03:33.250
  • I will also sit on the mount."
  • 00:03:33.280 --> 00:03:36.180
  • The mount would be the highest part of a mountain.
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:39.010
  • "The mount of the congregation,
  • 00:03:39.040 --> 00:03:40.210
  • on the farthest sides of the north."
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:43.000
  • North is up on the map.
  • 00:03:43.030 --> 00:03:46.010
  • Verse 14, "I will ascend," that's go up,
  • 00:03:46.040 --> 00:03:49.280
  • "above the heights," that's high, "of the clouds."
  • 00:03:50.010 --> 00:03:53.050
  • Clouds are up, they're high.
  • 00:03:53.080 --> 00:03:55.130
  • And then, notice the word he uses to refer to God,
  • 00:03:55.160 --> 00:03:59.100
  • because we're talking about being high, or up,
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:02.070
  • or lifted up, or exalted.
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:04.030
  • "I will be like the Most High."
  • 00:04:04.060 --> 00:04:08.100
  • He didn't say the most holy, which he could have said,
  • 00:04:08.130 --> 00:04:11.070
  • or the most loving, or the most compassionate,
  • 00:04:11.100 --> 00:04:14.110
  • or the most just.
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:15.260
  • He decides to use the word high.
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:18.100
  • "I will be like the Most High."
  • 00:04:18.130 --> 00:04:20.050
  • Watch God's response, Verse 15.
  • 00:04:20.080 --> 00:04:22.160
  • "Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
  • 00:04:22.190 --> 00:04:27.050
  • to the lowest depths," opposite of heights,
  • 00:04:27.080 --> 00:04:31.220
  • "of the Pit."
  • 00:04:31.250 --> 00:04:35.080
  • Satan wanted to be lifted up.
  • 00:04:35.110 --> 00:04:38.290
  • He wanted to be exalted.
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:40.150
  • He wanted to be, if you want to just put it straight out,
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:43.150
  • he wanted to be worshipped.
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:46.010
  • He wanted to be God.
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:47.180
  • He wanted to be like God.
  • 00:04:47.210 --> 00:04:49.080
  • He wanted people to draw attention to him.
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:51.140
  • He wanted people to honor him.
  • 00:04:51.170 --> 00:04:55.140
  • Now, you've probably heard theologians say, or pastors say
  • 00:04:55.170 --> 00:04:58.090
  • "We're all born with an Adamic nature."
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:05:03.000
  • 'Adamic' means 'like Adam.'
  • 00:05:03.030 --> 00:05:06.030
  • A nature like Adam's.
  • 00:05:06.060 --> 00:05:09.050
  • I don't want to disappoint you: we were born with
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:11.190
  • an Adamic nature, but if you only go a little bit further,
  • 00:05:11.220 --> 00:05:14.150
  • Adam was not the original sinner:
  • 00:05:14.180 --> 00:05:16.060
  • Satan was.
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:18.200
  • Again, I know this is going to be tough.
  • 00:05:18.230 --> 00:05:20.000
  • You didn't come to church to hear this, but you were actually
  • 00:05:20.030 --> 00:05:22.050
  • born with a Satanic nature.
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:26.080
  • isn't that great for the pastor to tell you that?
  • 00:05:26.110 --> 00:05:31.220
  • We were born with a nature that wanted to be lifted up.
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:36.140
  • Wanted -- we wanted to be exalted.
  • 00:05:36.170 --> 00:05:38.220
  • We wanted people to look at us, we wanted people
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:40.080
  • to talk about us, we want people to compliment us.
  • 00:05:40.110 --> 00:05:44.090
  • That's our old nature.
  • 00:05:44.120 --> 00:05:47.040
  • Now you're lookin' at me like, "Hmm... I don't know."
  • 00:05:47.070 --> 00:05:49.070
  • Okay. I'll prove it to you, since you asked.
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:54.160
  • One simple question:
  • 00:05:54.190 --> 00:05:56.010
  • Who's the first person you look for in a group picture?
  • 00:05:56.040 --> 00:05:59.210
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:04.100
  • Huh? And if you don't look good, the whole picture's bad.
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:07.140
  • Don't look at that picture!
  • 00:06:07.170 --> 00:06:08.160
  • That's a bad picture, that's a bad picture.
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:15.060
  • Satan always wants to turn the conversation to himself.
  • 00:06:15.090 --> 00:06:19.030
  • Did you realize Jesus always turned
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:20.160
  • the conversation to His Father
  • 00:06:20.190 --> 00:06:22.050
  • or the Holy Spirit? Always.
  • 00:06:22.080 --> 00:06:23.290
  • They said to Jesus, "Well, we love the miracles
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:26.150
  • that you do," and He said, "I don't do anything
  • 00:06:26.180 --> 00:06:28.060
  • unless I first see the Father do it."
  • 00:06:28.090 --> 00:06:31.130
  • They said, "Well, okay, we love the teachings that you give."
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:34.090
  • "I don't say anything unless I first hear the Father say it."
  • 00:06:34.120 --> 00:06:38.000
  • "Well, the works that you do are great!"
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:39.210
  • "Well, the One coming after me is going to do greater works."
  • 00:06:39.240 --> 00:06:43.160
  • He just always turned that attention.
  • 00:06:43.190 --> 00:06:44.280
  • Listen, the more you become like Christ,
  • 00:06:45.010 --> 00:06:49.040
  • the more you turn the conversation
  • 00:06:49.070 --> 00:06:51.020
  • to Christ and others, and off of yourself.
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:55.090
  • So, Satan's plan has been, and is, and will be in the future,
  • 00:06:55.120 --> 00:07:03.080
  • to steal worship from God.
  • 00:07:03.110 --> 00:07:07.040
  • As a matter of fact, this is amazing to me.
  • 00:07:07.070 --> 00:07:12.040
  • He actually tried to get Jesus to worship him.
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:16.230
  • Matthew 4:8-9, "Again, the devil took Him up
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:19.260
  • on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:23.030
  • of the world and their glory, and he said to Him,
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:25.220
  • 'All these things I will give You
  • 00:07:25.250 --> 00:07:29.090
  • if You will fall down and worship me."
  • 00:07:29.120 --> 00:07:34.180
  • That's amazing! He even tried to get Jesus.
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:37.180
  • If you don't think he wants worship,
  • 00:07:37.210 --> 00:07:39.100
  • he tried to get Jesus to worship him.
  • 00:07:39.130 --> 00:07:41.230
  • But I want you to notice how he phrased it,
  • 00:07:41.260 --> 00:07:43.060
  • "If you will fall down and worship me."
  • 00:07:43.090 --> 00:07:45.190
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • 00:07:45.220 --> 00:07:47.030
  • Worship is always expressed; always.
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:52.250
  • See, he didn't just say if you'll worship me,
  • 00:07:52.280 --> 00:07:54.220
  • he said "If you will fall down."
  • 00:07:54.250 --> 00:07:57.000
  • The reason worship is always expressed
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:58.260
  • is because worship is love, and love is always expressed.
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:03.040
  • You have to express your love.
  • 00:08:03.070 --> 00:08:07.030
  • The reason I'm saying this is because there are many people
  • 00:08:07.060 --> 00:08:09.250
  • that will come to church and not express their worship.
  • 00:08:09.280 --> 00:08:14.080
  • Men.
  • 00:08:14.110 --> 00:08:16.000
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:16.030 --> 00:08:20.130
  • And they say things like this.
  • 00:08:20.160 --> 00:08:21.270
  • Well, I'm just not an expressive person.
  • 00:08:22.000 --> 00:08:26.130
  • But, Sunday night when the Cowboys come on --
  • 00:08:26.160 --> 00:08:29.270
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:30.000 --> 00:08:32.170
  • -- and some big guy carries a pig across a chalk line,
  • 00:08:32.200 --> 00:08:37.140
  • and you start going, whoo!
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:41.200
  • Don't tell me you're not expressive.
  • 00:08:41.230 --> 00:08:44.160
  • Can I just say one more time, men.
  • 00:08:44.190 --> 00:08:49.240
  • Your kids are watching you.
  • 00:08:49.270 --> 00:08:54.260
  • And when you come to church, they need to see
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:58.080
  • that a real man expresses his love.
  • 00:08:58.110 --> 00:09:02.160
  • They need to see that.
  • 00:09:02.190 --> 00:09:04.010
  • [Applause]
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:08.230
  • So, why did Satan fall?
  • 00:09:08.260 --> 00:09:10.080
  • He fell because he wanted to be worshipped.
  • 00:09:10.110 --> 00:09:11.230
  • Here's number two.
  • 00:09:11.260 --> 00:09:13.080
  • Who created instruments?
  • 00:09:13.110 --> 00:09:16.110
  • Well, I want you to know that Satan
  • 00:09:16.140 --> 00:09:17.260
  • did not create instruments, but God created instruments.
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:21.110
  • And I'm going to show you something shocking,
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:22.260
  • right there in Isaiah 14.
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:24.190
  • We started at Verse 12 a moment ago.
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:27.090
  • This is talking to Lucifer, no doubt about it.
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:30.180
  • Look at Verse 11.
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:33.080
  • It says, "Your pomp is brought down to Sheol,
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:38.010
  • and the sound of your stringed instruments."
  • 00:09:38.040 --> 00:09:47.130
  • There it is, right in your Bible.
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:50.120
  • "And the sound of your stringed instruments."
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:54.050
  • Some versions say harps.
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:56.280
  • "Brought down to Sheol."
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:57.270
  • Now, look at Ezekiel 28, look at Verse 11.
  • 00:09:58.000 --> 00:10:00.160
  • "Moreover the Word of the Lord came to me,
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:02.050
  • saying, "Son of man, take up a lamentation
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:03.280
  • for the king of Tyre,
  • 00:10:04.010 --> 00:10:06.160
  • and say to him, "Thus says the Lord God,
  • 00:10:06.190 --> 00:10:08.160
  • you were the seal of perfection."
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:13.260
  • Okay, this is talking about Lucifer before the fall,
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:15.200
  • not talking about the king of Tyre.
  • 00:10:15.230 --> 00:10:17.090
  • Watch.
  • 00:10:17.120 --> 00:10:18.240
  • "Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty,"
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:20.280
  • and here's how you know for sure it's talking about Lucifer.
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:23.170
  • Verse 13, "You were in Eden, the garden of God."
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:30.130
  • Okay, just so you know, biblically, historically
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:33.230
  • speaking here, the king of Tyre lived 3.400 years after Eden,
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:41.180
  • the garden of God.
  • 00:10:41.210 --> 00:10:43.270
  • "You were in Eden, the garden of God."
  • 00:10:44.000 --> 00:10:45.150
  • The king of Tyre was not in Eden.
  • 00:10:45.180 --> 00:10:47.250
  • There were four persons in Eden: Adam, Eve, God, and Satan.
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:56.210
  • "You were in Eden, the garden of God."
  • 00:10:56.240 --> 00:10:58.140
  • Watch.
  • 00:10:58.170 --> 00:10:59.250
  • "Every precious stone was your covering.
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:01.120
  • The sardius, topaz, diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper,
  • 00:11:01.150 --> 00:11:04.150
  • sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:07.230
  • The workmanship," we'll come back to this later.
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:10.090
  • "The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
  • 00:11:10.120 --> 00:11:13.040
  • was prepared for you on the day you were created,"
  • 00:11:13.070 --> 00:11:18.050
  • not born, created.
  • 00:11:18.080 --> 00:11:21.110
  • Now, watch Verse 14.
  • 00:11:21.140 --> 00:11:22.260
  • "You were the anointed cherub who covers."
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:25.250
  • Look at me just for a moment.
  • 00:11:25.280 --> 00:11:27.100
  • What's a cherub?
  • 00:11:27.130 --> 00:11:29.100
  • An angel, and an anointed angel who covered,
  • 00:11:29.130 --> 00:11:33.210
  • or who had authority.
  • 00:11:33.240 --> 00:11:35.250
  • There are three archangels, or ruling angels,
  • 00:11:35.280 --> 00:11:39.120
  • in heaven; Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer.
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:42.050
  • Of course, Lucifer fell. Let's keep going here.
  • 00:11:42.080 --> 00:11:44.120
  • It says, "You were the anointed angel who covered,"
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:48.150
  • who had authority. "I established you.
  • 00:11:48.180 --> 00:11:50.260
  • You were on the holy mountain of God.
  • 00:11:50.290 --> 00:11:53.040
  • You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
  • 00:11:53.070 --> 00:11:55.050
  • You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
  • 00:11:55.080 --> 00:11:59.010
  • till inequity was found in you."
  • 00:11:59.040 --> 00:12:01.220
  • That's Satan.
  • 00:12:01.250 --> 00:12:03.110
  • "By the abundance of your trading," I'll come back
  • 00:12:03.140 --> 00:12:05.230
  • and explain the word trading, "you became filled
  • 00:12:05.260 --> 00:12:07.280
  • with violence within, and you sinned.
  • 00:12:08.010 --> 00:12:09.190
  • Therefore I cast you..."
  • 00:12:09.220 --> 00:12:11.200
  • Satan's the one that got kicked out of heaven.
  • 00:12:11.230 --> 00:12:14.020
  • "I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God,
  • 00:12:14.050 --> 00:12:18.100
  • and I destroyed you, O covering cherub," angel,
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:23.160
  • "from the midst of the fiery stones."
  • 00:12:23.190 --> 00:12:26.050
  • This is talking about Lucifer.
  • 00:12:26.080 --> 00:12:30.040
  • He says the reason you were kicked out
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:31.280
  • is because of your trading.
  • 00:12:32.010 --> 00:12:33.200
  • Old King James says merchandising.
  • 00:12:33.230 --> 00:12:35.090
  • Let me explain to you what this word means from the Hebrew.
  • 00:12:35.120 --> 00:12:38.090
  • Let's just say that I owned a men's clothing store,
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:42.200
  • and Pastor Todd worked for me at the men's clothing store,
  • 00:12:42.230 --> 00:12:47.020
  • and you came in to buy a suit, and you got fitted for a suit,
  • 00:12:47.050 --> 00:12:50.170
  • and he said, that'll be $300,
  • 00:12:50.200 --> 00:12:52.230
  • and you gave him three $100 bills.
  • 00:12:52.260 --> 00:12:55.180
  • He put two $100 bills in the cash register,
  • 00:12:55.210 --> 00:12:59.000
  • and he put a $100 bill in his pocket.
  • 00:12:59.030 --> 00:13:02.000
  • That's merchandising.
  • 00:13:02.030 --> 00:13:04.010
  • That's what this Hebrew word means.
  • 00:13:04.040 --> 00:13:05.230
  • It means that he's not the owner of the store,
  • 00:13:05.260 --> 00:13:08.230
  • that that money does not rightfully belong to him,
  • 00:13:08.260 --> 00:13:11.040
  • it belongs to the owner of the store.
  • 00:13:11.070 --> 00:13:13.050
  • It was only supposed to pass through his hands,
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:16.070
  • and yet he reached out and grabbed some of it.
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:18.160
  • That is exactly what Satan did.
  • 00:13:18.190 --> 00:13:20.280
  • Satan was the worship leader in heaven before the fall,
  • 00:13:21.010 --> 00:13:23.150
  • and the worship was supposed to pass through his hands
  • 00:13:23.180 --> 00:13:27.140
  • to the rightful owner, and he reached out and took some of it,
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:31.110
  • and when he did it was a cosmic violation,
  • 00:13:31.140 --> 00:13:34.230
  • and immediately, he was kicked out of heaven,
  • 00:13:34.260 --> 00:13:38.110
  • because God is the only One worthy to be worshipped.
  • 00:13:38.140 --> 00:13:42.070
  • And the reason I say he was the worship leader
  • 00:13:42.100 --> 00:13:43.270
  • is because he was created with instruments.
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:46.120
  • Remember, I said there are three archangels,
  • 00:13:46.150 --> 00:13:48.130
  • Gabriel, Michael, and Lucifer.
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:50.150
  • There are three pillars on which the church is built --
  • 00:13:50.180 --> 00:13:53.040
  • the Word, prayer, and worship.
  • 00:13:53.070 --> 00:13:55.260
  • Every time we come together as a congregation,
  • 00:13:55.290 --> 00:13:57.250
  • we're going to have worship, we're going to pray,
  • 00:13:57.280 --> 00:14:00.090
  • and we're going to have the Word, right?
  • 00:14:00.120 --> 00:14:01.240
  • When you have a quiet time, you should have worship,
  • 00:14:01.270 --> 00:14:03.290
  • you should pray, and you should read the Word.
  • 00:14:04.020 --> 00:14:06.130
  • When you look at these three archangels --
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:08.290
  • When you look at Michael, every time you see
  • 00:14:09.020 --> 00:14:10.140
  • Michael in Scripture, he's answering prayer.
  • 00:14:10.170 --> 00:14:12.250
  • Daniel 10, he comes to answer the prayer of Daniel.
  • 00:14:12.280 --> 00:14:16.140
  • Helped the prayer get through.
  • 00:14:16.170 --> 00:14:17.290
  • So, he's answering prayer.
  • 00:14:18.020 --> 00:14:19.140
  • He rules over prayer.
  • 00:14:19.170 --> 00:14:20.290
  • Every time you see Gabriel in scripture,
  • 00:14:21.020 --> 00:14:22.140
  • he's bringing the Word of the Lord.
  • 00:14:22.170 --> 00:14:23.290
  • He brought the Word of the Lord to Mary, the mother of Jesus.
  • 00:14:24.020 --> 00:14:26.070
  • He brought the Word of the Lord to Zechariah,
  • 00:14:26.100 --> 00:14:28.050
  • the father of John the Baptist.
  • 00:14:28.080 --> 00:14:29.160
  • He brings the Word of the Lord.
  • 00:14:29.190 --> 00:14:31.010
  • So, Michael rules over prayer, Gabriel over the Word.
  • 00:14:31.040 --> 00:14:34.080
  • Lucifer used to rule over worship, but he got kicked out,
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:39.290
  • and here's how I know he ruled over worship.
  • 00:14:40.020 --> 00:14:41.200
  • Do you remember in Isaiah 14 it said,
  • 00:14:41.230 --> 00:14:43.050
  • "The sound of your stringed instruments,"
  • 00:14:43.080 --> 00:14:46.030
  • and look at Verse 13 of Ezekiel 28.
  • 00:14:46.060 --> 00:14:48.210
  • It says, "The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
  • 00:14:48.240 --> 00:14:53.130
  • was prepared for you on the day you were created."
  • 00:14:53.160 --> 00:14:58.250
  • "The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes."
  • 00:14:58.280 --> 00:15:01.030
  • Okay, this is easy to figure out
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:02.220
  • what the first word means; Timbrels.
  • 00:15:02.250 --> 00:15:04.200
  • What would be an English word for a timbrel?
  • 00:15:04.230 --> 00:15:08.050
  • A tambourine.
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:10.020
  • You've seen them, a tambourine.
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:11.170
  • A timbrel is a percussion instrument.
  • 00:15:11.200 --> 00:15:13.280
  • That's what it means here.
  • 00:15:14.010 --> 00:15:15.130
  • Pipes means wind instruments.
  • 00:15:15.160 --> 00:15:18.230
  • Pipes, something you blow through to make a sound,
  • 00:15:18.260 --> 00:15:22.190
  • like a clarinet, or a flute, or a trumpet.
  • 00:15:22.220 --> 00:15:26.080
  • Now, listen.
  • 00:15:26.110 --> 00:15:27.230
  • Here we have, in Isaiah 14, strings, and here in Ezekiel 28
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:32.120
  • it says the workmanship of your percussion
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:35.060
  • instruments and your wind instruments were created,
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:37.010
  • were prepared for you, on the day you were created.
  • 00:15:37.040 --> 00:15:42.020
  • I don't know if you ever thought about this, but you have
  • 00:15:42.050 --> 00:15:45.070
  • all three of those instruments in you.
  • 00:15:45.100 --> 00:15:48.190
  • And those are the three classifications.
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:51.000
  • All instruments fall into one of those three classifications.
  • 00:15:51.030 --> 00:15:54.020
  • All instruments.
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:55.170
  • All instruments, they're either strings, percussion, or wind.
  • 00:15:55.200 --> 00:15:59.220
  • All instruments.
  • 00:15:59.250 --> 00:16:00.260
  • And wind, we divide between brass and reed,
  • 00:16:00.290 --> 00:16:04.090
  • but it's still wind.
  • 00:16:04.120 --> 00:16:05.140
  • You have to blow through it to make it make a sound.
  • 00:16:05.170 --> 00:16:07.250
  • But all instruments, all of 'em, either have strings,
  • 00:16:07.280 --> 00:16:11.040
  • or they're percussion, or they're wind.
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:15.220
  • And you were create --
  • 00:16:15.250 --> 00:16:17.070
  • Satan was created with all three of those instruments in him.
  • 00:16:17.100 --> 00:16:19.270
  • You saw it, Isaiah 14, Ezekiel 28.
  • 00:16:20.000 --> 00:16:22.060
  • "The sound of your stringed instruments,"
  • 00:16:22.090 --> 00:16:24.170
  • and "The workmanship of your timbrels and your pipes
  • 00:16:24.200 --> 00:16:27.120
  • was prepared for you on the day you were created."
  • 00:16:27.150 --> 00:16:31.140
  • But I'm telling you, you have all three of those instruments
  • 00:16:31.170 --> 00:16:33.180
  • in you.
  • 00:16:33.210 --> 00:16:35.230
  • You have percussion instruments.
  • 00:16:35.260 --> 00:16:38.170
  • [Stomping and clapping]
  • 00:16:38.200 --> 00:16:43.170
  • I'm pretty good at that. Okay.
  • 00:16:43.200 --> 00:16:46.140
  • You have percussion.
  • 00:16:46.170 --> 00:16:48.130
  • You say, okay, let me think about the others.
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:50.010
  • Strings? Oh, I have vocal chords.
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:53.070
  • You have strings in your throat, right?
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:55.280
  • And then, well, what about wind?
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:57.080
  • Well, how do those strings operate?
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:16:58.290
  • How do those chords operate?
  • 00:16:59.020 --> 00:17:01.030
  • They operate when wind passes over them.
  • 00:17:01.060 --> 00:17:04.240
  • Ahhh!
  • 00:17:04.270 --> 00:17:06.110
  • That's pretty good, isn't it?
  • 00:17:06.140 --> 00:17:07.260
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:07.290 --> 00:17:09.140
  • Now you see why I don't sing on the worship team,
  • 00:17:09.170 --> 00:17:11.040
  • because the rest of the worship team,
  • 00:17:11.070 --> 00:17:13.110
  • they'd just be so intimidated!
  • 00:17:13.140 --> 00:17:15.070
  • You know, they'd just.
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:16.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:16.280 --> 00:17:18.190
  • It wasn't that funny!
  • 00:17:18.220 --> 00:17:20.130
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:35.070
  • All right, it might have been.
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:40.040
  • Listen to me. I want you to catch this!
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:43.130
  • Satan was created with instruments, but he fell.
  • 00:17:43.160 --> 00:17:49.120
  • And then God created you, with instruments.
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:56.120
  • That's amazing to me.
  • 00:17:56.150 --> 00:17:59.190
  • There's more that happens when musical instruments
  • 00:17:59.220 --> 00:18:03.190
  • are played and we sing than what you think.
  • 00:18:03.220 --> 00:18:08.050
  • Let me just read you a couple of Scriptures.
  • 00:18:08.080 --> 00:18:09.190
  • 1 Chronicles 13:8, "David and all Israel played music
  • 00:18:09.220 --> 00:18:12.260
  • before God with all their might, with singing, on harps,
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:17.050
  • on stringed instruments," there are strings,
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:19.190
  • "on tambourines," there's percussion,
  • 00:18:19.220 --> 00:18:22.060
  • "on cymbals," percussion, "and with trumpets,"
  • 00:18:22.090 --> 00:18:24.250
  • there are the wind instruments.
  • 00:18:24.280 --> 00:18:27.240
  • And here's an amazing one, 2 Chronicles 5:13-14.
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:31.030
  • "Indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters
  • 00:18:31.060 --> 00:18:33.090
  • and the singers were as one,"
  • 00:18:33.120 --> 00:18:36.050
  • and you've probably experienced this in a worship service,
  • 00:18:36.080 --> 00:18:38.210
  • "to make one sound to be heard in praising
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:41.090
  • and thanking the Lord,
  • 00:18:41.120 --> 00:18:42.220
  • that when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets,
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:44.160
  • and the cymbals, and the instruments of music,
  • 00:18:44.190 --> 00:18:47.210
  • and praised the Lord, saying, 'For He is good,
  • 00:18:47.240 --> 00:18:50.050
  • for His mercy endures forever," that the house,
  • 00:18:50.080 --> 00:18:52.250
  • the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud,
  • 00:18:52.280 --> 00:18:56.260
  • so that the priests could not continue ministering
  • 00:18:56.290 --> 00:19:00.050
  • because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord
  • 00:19:00.080 --> 00:19:02.190
  • filled the house of God."
  • 00:19:02.220 --> 00:19:05.110
  • Let it be!
  • 00:19:05.140 --> 00:19:07.050
  • Let it be!
  • 00:19:07.080 --> 00:19:08.200
  • [Applause]
  • 00:19:08.230 --> 00:19:13.040
  • That's what we want to see in church!
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:14.240
  • We want to see God's glory fill the house of God,
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:17.270
  • and it happens when you worship and praise Him with instruments.
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:23.100
  • Instruments are more important than you think.
  • 00:19:23.130 --> 00:19:26.270
  • And here's point number three, what did God do?
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:29.240
  • What did God do?
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:33.120
  • Well, He did probably a little more than you think He did.
  • 00:19:33.150 --> 00:19:39.140
  • Genesis 1:2 is a real strange verse.
  • 00:19:39.170 --> 00:19:43.250
  • It doesn't seem to go with Verse 1,
  • 00:19:43.280 --> 00:19:45.110
  • it doesn't seem to go with Verse 3.
  • 00:19:45.140 --> 00:19:47.090
  • Lots of theories about it, one called the gap theory.
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:52.000
  • But it just doesn't go at all, because this is what it says.
  • 00:19:52.030 --> 00:19:54.070
  • It says, "God created the heavens and the earth."
  • 00:19:54.100 --> 00:19:57.190
  • And then it says, "The earth was without form and void,
  • 00:19:57.220 --> 00:20:02.290
  • and darkness covered it."
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:05.270
  • Okay, most theologians believe that that is when God
  • 00:20:06.000 --> 00:20:09.070
  • threw Satan to the earth.
  • 00:20:09.100 --> 00:20:11.230
  • And Satan brought --
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:13.080
  • "without form" in the Hebrew means chaos.
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:16.100
  • He brought chaos. Void means emptiness.
  • 00:20:16.130 --> 00:20:19.270
  • He brought emptiness, and of course,
  • 00:20:20.000 --> 00:20:21.080
  • he brought darkness.
  • 00:20:21.110 --> 00:20:22.230
  • So, he brought chaos, and emptiness, and darkness.
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:26.210
  • Let me tell you what God did.
  • 00:20:26.240 --> 00:20:29.060
  • God said, let's take care of these three things.
  • 00:20:29.090 --> 00:20:33.020
  • First of all, "Let there be light."
  • 00:20:33.050 --> 00:20:37.230
  • And the first thing He did was he dispersed
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:40.150
  • and dispelled the darkness.
  • 00:20:40.180 --> 00:20:42.020
  • He said, "Let there be light."
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:43.270
  • And then He said, let's bring some form.
  • 00:20:44.000 --> 00:20:46.040
  • Let's have a light at day and a light at night,
  • 00:20:46.070 --> 00:20:48.270
  • and let's put some stars in the sky,
  • 00:20:49.000 --> 00:20:50.120
  • and let's have some land and some sea,
  • 00:20:50.150 --> 00:20:52.110
  • and He began to bring form to the earth.
  • 00:20:52.140 --> 00:20:55.240
  • And then He said, and let's fill this emptiness,
  • 00:20:55.270 --> 00:20:58.200
  • and he created plants, and mountains, and trees,
  • 00:20:58.230 --> 00:21:02.130
  • and flowers.
  • 00:21:02.160 --> 00:21:04.000
  • And then He created living creatures,
  • 00:21:04.030 --> 00:21:05.150
  • and birds that sing, and animals,
  • 00:21:05.180 --> 00:21:07.260
  • and He created all --
  • 00:21:07.290 --> 00:21:09.110
  • -- and He brought fullness to the emptiness.
  • 00:21:09.140 --> 00:21:12.280
  • He took care of the darkness, He took care of the chaos,
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:15.130
  • and He took care of the emptiness.
  • 00:21:15.160 --> 00:21:17.130
  • There was one thing missing,
  • 00:21:17.160 --> 00:21:20.040
  • and I think it went something like this.
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:21.280
  • I think Lucifer said to Him, "Yeah, You've got all of this,
  • 00:21:22.010 --> 00:21:24.260
  • but who's going to give You praise?
  • 00:21:24.290 --> 00:21:27.230
  • Who's going to give You honor? Who's going to give You glory?
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:30.090
  • Who's going to be Your worship leader now?"
  • 00:21:30.120 --> 00:21:32.290
  • And God reached down, grabbed a handful of dirt,
  • 00:21:33.020 --> 00:21:37.000
  • squeezed it, blew in it, and said,
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:39.210
  • "That is my new worship leader!
  • 00:21:39.240 --> 00:21:44.210
  • That's my worship leader."
  • 00:21:44.240 --> 00:21:46.060
  • [Applause]
  • 00:21:46.090 --> 00:21:50.030
  • "And furthermore, Satan, that is going to crush your head!"
  • 00:21:50.060 --> 00:21:55.020
  • [Applause]
  • 00:21:55.050 --> 00:22:00.150
  • Only one problem.
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:03.000
  • Satan showed up to the new worship leaders,
  • 00:22:03.030 --> 00:22:06.010
  • who also had instruments in them,
  • 00:22:06.040 --> 00:22:09.050
  • and said the exact same thing that caused Satan to fall.
  • 00:22:09.080 --> 00:22:15.190
  • He said, "You can be like God."
  • 00:22:15.220 --> 00:22:18.000
  • Remember what he said in Isaiah 14?
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:19.270
  • "I'm going to be like the Most High."
  • 00:22:20.000 --> 00:22:23.040
  • And Adam and Eve bought it, and chaos, and emptiness,
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:30.090
  • and darkness came back into the world.
  • 00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:37.050
  • But, 2.000 years ago, God said again,
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:43.090
  • "Let there be light," and sent His Son into the world,
  • 00:22:43.120 --> 00:22:49.270
  • the light of the world.
  • 00:22:50.000 --> 00:22:51.190
  • [Applause]
  • 00:22:51.220 --> 00:22:55.170
  • God created you in His image,
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:58.160
  • and He created you with instruments
  • 00:22:58.190 --> 00:23:02.220
  • to worship and to praise the Lord.
  • 00:23:02.250 --> 00:23:08.170
  • And I'm telling you, when you worship Him,
  • 00:23:08.200 --> 00:23:11.200
  • and you praise Him, and you use your instruments,
  • 00:23:11.230 --> 00:23:15.090
  • the glory of the Lord will fill this house,
  • 00:23:15.120 --> 00:23:21.260
  • and your house, and this house.
  • 00:23:21.290 --> 00:23:27.090
  • Instruments are much, much more important than you think.
  • 00:23:27.120 --> 00:23:31.040
  • Isn't it amazing?
  • 00:23:31.280 --> 00:23:33.150
  • We are God's new worship leaders.
  • 00:23:33.180 --> 00:23:37.210
  • God created us to love Him and be in relationship with Him,
  • 00:23:37.240 --> 00:23:42.020
  • and one of the ways that we live in His presence,
  • 00:23:42.050 --> 00:23:44.210
  • live in relationship with Him,
  • 00:23:44.240 --> 00:23:46.140
  • is to learn to praise Him and worship Him,
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:49.070
  • and He gave us instruments.
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:51.230
  • He gave us percussion instruments, and strings, wind.
  • 00:23:51.260 --> 00:23:55.080
  • We can praise the Lord.
  • 00:23:55.110 --> 00:23:57.000
  • And I want to encourage you,
  • 00:23:57.030 --> 00:23:58.150
  • even if it's not your personality
  • 00:23:58.180 --> 00:24:00.230
  • to maybe be outward or demonstrative in your praise,
  • 00:24:00.260 --> 00:24:04.200
  • I want to encourage you to praise God,
  • 00:24:04.230 --> 00:24:08.010
  • because He's worthy of our praise, and,
  • 00:24:08.040 --> 00:24:10.100
  • when we praise Him, we live in His presence.
  • 00:24:10.130 --> 00:24:15.080
  • I'm going to be continuing this series,
  • 00:24:15.110 --> 00:24:16.230

  • and you also step into God's provision for you.
