  • 00:00:09.065 --> 00:00:10.366
  • has you here,at this moment?
  • 00:00:10.400 --> 00:00:13.470
  • In a cave.
  • 00:00:13.503 --> 00:00:16.639
  • God wants to talk to you.
  • 00:00:16.673 --> 00:00:19.809
  • He's got you here because he'sgot something he wants to
  • 00:00:19.843 --> 00:00:21.911
  • tell you.
  • 00:00:21.945 --> 00:00:23.246
  • Because your life's been toonoisy, and too busy, and too
  • 00:00:23.279 --> 00:00:26.382
  • fast, and too loud, and toorambunctious.
  • 00:00:26.416 --> 00:00:29.519
  • And you couldn't hear.
  • 00:00:29.552 --> 00:00:32.655
  • God brought you to the cave.
  • 00:00:32.689 --> 00:00:35.225
  • It can change your perspective.
  • 00:00:35.258 --> 00:00:36.960
  • Do you think God doesn't knowwhat happened to you?
  • 00:00:36.993 --> 00:00:39.863
  • Do you think God does notrealize the injustices or the
  • 00:00:39.896 --> 00:00:44.534
  • pain or the trauma you've beenthrough?
  • 00:00:44.567 --> 00:00:46.469
  • God already knows that.
  • 00:00:46.703 --> 00:00:48.138
  • God wants to whisper somethingto you, and you need to hear
  • 00:00:48.404 --> 00:00:53.643
  • what the spirit of the Lord issaying.
  • 00:00:53.676 --> 00:00:56.379

  • Bishop TD Jakes: Isolation has atendency to affect us in
  • 00:01:09.826 --> 00:01:13.930
  • physiological ways.
  • 00:01:13.963 --> 00:01:15.632
  • You wouldn't think just somebodyalone would affect them in
  • 00:01:15.665 --> 00:01:19.569
  • physiological ways, but itabsolutely does.
  • 00:01:19.602 --> 00:01:22.939
  • It is so important that you betrained for isolation.
  • 00:01:22.972 --> 00:01:26.509
  • That the astronaut that's goingto be, say, up in the heavens
  • 00:01:26.543 --> 00:01:31.381
  • for a year or two years or threeyears, they train them to get
  • 00:01:31.414 --> 00:01:36.686
  • their mind ready for isolation.
  • 00:01:36.719 --> 00:01:39.322
  • They tell them to keep aroutine.
  • 00:01:39.355 --> 00:01:41.958
  • They tell them not to handle itlike a vacation where you sleep
  • 00:01:41.991 --> 00:01:45.261
  • late and get up, you don't haveanything to do if you don't put
  • 00:01:45.295 --> 00:01:47.597
  • on your clothes.
  • 00:01:47.630 --> 00:01:48.965
  • Go get dressed, get yourselftogether, have a schedule, have
  • 00:01:48.998 --> 00:01:50.600
  • a routine.
  • 00:01:50.633 --> 00:01:51.935
  • Because isolation can bedifficult on the brain.
  • 00:01:51.968 --> 00:01:55.505
  • And if you're not ready for it,and if you're not prepared for
  • 00:01:55.538 --> 00:01:58.241
  • it psychologically, it can evenbe damaging.
  • 00:01:58.274 --> 00:02:01.711
  • Some studies have been verygraphic and talking about how
  • 00:02:01.744 --> 00:02:06.182
  • isolation does things, the brainactually shrinks, the memory
  • 00:02:06.216 --> 00:02:10.053
  • stops functioning like it would.
  • 00:02:10.086 --> 00:02:12.121
  • And all of these kinds of perilsbegin to come up because you're
  • 00:02:12.155 --> 00:02:16.626
  • in isolation.
  • 00:02:16.659 --> 00:02:17.994
  • Isolation is difficult.
  • 00:02:18.027 --> 00:02:19.329
  • You're not just in isolationbecause you're an astronaut.
  • 00:02:19.362 --> 00:02:22.632
  • There are prisoners that are putin solitary confinement as
  • 00:02:23.132 --> 00:02:26.669
  • punishment, and they're leftalone.
  • 00:02:26.703 --> 00:02:28.938
  • And they're big strong men,who've been murderers and
  • 00:02:29.205 --> 00:02:32.942
  • killers, are over in the cornercrying, having emotional
  • 00:02:32.976 --> 00:02:36.546
  • breakdowns because of isolation.
  • 00:02:36.579 --> 00:02:41.017
  • And you wonder in your mind, howcould this happen to a prophet
  • 00:02:41.050 --> 00:02:46.923
  • of God?
  • 00:02:46.956 --> 00:02:48.258
  • Elijah is in the cave.
  • 00:02:48.291 --> 00:02:49.859
  • I mean, God, how can God beglorified with Elijah in
  • 00:02:49.892 --> 00:02:52.895
  • the cave?
  • 00:02:52.929 --> 00:02:54.230
  • Why don't you have him out thereon a mountain calling down,
  • 00:02:54.264 --> 00:02:55.798
  • firing, outrunning some chariotsomewhere, or speaking to the
  • 00:02:55.832 --> 00:02:59.168
  • prophets of Baal or doingsomething productive.
  • 00:02:59.202 --> 00:03:01.337
  • And you call me in the cave?
  • 00:03:01.537 --> 00:03:03.473
  • Sometimes that's the only placeyou can have a real conversation
  • 00:03:03.506 --> 00:03:08.311
  • with God, in a cave.
  • 00:03:08.344 --> 00:03:11.180
  • In a cave.
  • 00:03:13.483 --> 00:03:14.784
  • God wants to talk to you.
  • 00:03:14.817 --> 00:03:16.786
  • He wants to speak to you.
  • 00:03:17.754 --> 00:03:19.055
  • And Elijah was in that cave, andhe was isolated in that cave,
  • 00:03:19.088 --> 00:03:23.893
  • and he was in that cave becausehe was running from Jezebel and
  • 00:03:24.093 --> 00:03:27.330
  • the threats she had over hislife.
  • 00:03:27.363 --> 00:03:29.098
  • And when God says, what doestthou here?
  • 00:03:29.432 --> 00:03:31.668
  • He said, you know why I'm here.
  • 00:03:31.701 --> 00:03:33.202
  • He said, all the prophets ofBaal have sought my life,
  • 00:03:34.737 --> 00:03:39.842
  • they've tried to kill me,they've killed your prophets,
  • 00:03:39.876 --> 00:03:43.246
  • I've torn down their altars, Ihad to run from my life, and I,
  • 00:03:43.279 --> 00:03:47.283
  • even I, only am left.
  • 00:03:47.317 --> 00:03:49.118
  • Now, listen, that's important.
  • 00:03:49.152 --> 00:03:50.787
  • 'Cause I'm gonna get back tothat in a minute.
  • 00:03:51.087 --> 00:03:52.722
  • He says, I, even I, only amleft.
  • 00:03:52.922 --> 00:03:56.059
  • As if it's not just that he'slonely 'cause he's physically in
  • 00:03:56.092 --> 00:03:59.662
  • the cave, psychologically, inhis mind, I'm the only one left.
  • 00:03:59.696 --> 00:04:08.805
  • There's so many people right nowthink you're only one left.
  • 00:04:08.838 --> 00:04:11.507
  • Nobody knows, nobodyunderstands, nobody realizes,
  • 00:04:11.541 --> 00:04:15.478
  • nobody's ever been through whatI've been through, I am the only
  • 00:04:15.511 --> 00:04:17.947
  • one left.
  • 00:04:17.980 --> 00:04:19.282
  • And even though you might be ina crowd, you're alone.
  • 00:04:19.315 --> 00:04:22.018
  • And even though you may have ajob, you're alone.
  • 00:04:22.685 --> 00:04:24.787
  • Even though you're married, youmight be alone.
  • 00:04:24.821 --> 00:04:26.889
  • And that pressure, thepsychologists say that that
  • 00:04:26.923 --> 00:04:31.694
  • pressure is enough to change thebrain, short-circuit the memory.
  • 00:04:31.728 --> 00:04:37.266
  • Take away your ability to beable to reason, and to think,
  • 00:04:37.300 --> 00:04:40.503
  • and to function.
  • 00:04:40.536 --> 00:04:41.838
  • Alone.
  • 00:04:41.871 --> 00:04:43.206
  • Alone.
  • 00:04:43.239 --> 00:04:44.540
  • Alone.
  • 00:04:44.574 --> 00:04:45.908
  • Alone.
  • 00:04:45.942 --> 00:04:47.243
  • And this is a good man, and he'salone.
  • 00:04:47.276 --> 00:04:48.578
  • And this is a God man, and he'salone.
  • 00:04:48.611 --> 00:04:50.413
  • And this is a praying man, andhe's alone.
  • 00:04:50.446 --> 00:04:52.849
  • And this is an anointed man, andhe's alone.
  • 00:04:52.882 --> 00:04:55.284
  • And this man is a gifted man,and he's alone.
  • 00:04:55.318 --> 00:04:58.354
  • And he's tryin' to find God inthe cave.
  • 00:04:58.721 --> 00:05:00.690
  • And the cave, as pressuresome asit is, as damaging as it could
  • 00:05:00.723 --> 00:05:05.962
  • be, as overwhelming as it couldbe, he's staying in the cave to
  • 00:05:05.995 --> 00:05:11.401
  • avoid what's outside.
  • 00:05:11.434 --> 00:05:13.069
  • Like you and I are staying in toavoid what's outside.
  • 00:05:13.102 --> 00:05:16.773
  • So the cave is protection.
  • 00:05:17.206 --> 00:05:18.875
  • But sometimes protection ispainful.
  • 00:05:19.509 --> 00:05:21.511
  • It's protection, but it'spainful.
  • 00:05:23.579 --> 00:05:26.983
  • Okay?
  • 00:05:27.016 --> 00:05:28.317
  • It's covering, but it'suncomfortable.
  • 00:05:28.351 --> 00:05:30.953
  • Okay?
  • 00:05:30.987 --> 00:05:32.288
  • It's insulation, but it's alsoisolation.
  • 00:05:32.321 --> 00:05:35.625
  • And it's all happening at thesame time.
  • 00:05:36.092 --> 00:05:38.327
  • It's a good thing for him, butit's a bad thing for him.
  • 00:05:38.361 --> 00:05:40.897
  • And God has ordered his steps.
  • 00:05:40.930 --> 00:05:42.765
  • And there we find Elijah, theman who stood on mountaintops,
  • 00:05:42.799 --> 00:05:47.470
  • the man who met with kings andqueens, the man who confronted
  • 00:05:47.503 --> 00:05:50.673
  • the prophets of Baal, the manwho tore down the altars, the
  • 00:05:50.706 --> 00:05:53.509
  • man who did all of that can dealwith all of that better than he
  • 00:05:53.543 --> 00:05:56.612
  • can deal with being alone.
  • 00:05:56.646 --> 00:05:58.347
  • I, even I, only am left.
  • 00:05:58.381 --> 00:06:02.285
  • And he's trying to find God inthe screaming sound of silence,
  • 00:06:05.621 --> 00:06:11.594
  • Yeah, because silence willscream at you.
  • 00:06:16.299 --> 00:06:18.334
  • Trying to determine where am Iin my life?
  • 00:06:19.569 --> 00:06:22.772
  • And there's something thathappened in the cave that I want
  • 00:06:23.806 --> 00:06:26.142
  • you to see.
  • 00:06:26.175 --> 00:06:27.510
  • I'm not just here to rehearse aSunday school story to you,
  • 00:06:27.543 --> 00:06:30.012
  • there's something, there's aturning point in the narration
  • 00:06:30.046 --> 00:06:34.083
  • of the cave.
  • 00:06:34.116 --> 00:06:35.418
  • First there had to be adiscerning moment.
  • 00:06:35.451 --> 00:06:37.220
  • See, he has gone from from fightto flight, and now he's goin'
  • 00:06:37.453 --> 00:06:43.459
  • into what I call fermentation.
  • 00:06:44.293 --> 00:06:45.962
  • This is a point oftransformation, molecular
  • 00:06:47.029 --> 00:06:49.866
  • structure changes going on inheaven.
  • 00:06:49.899 --> 00:06:52.335
  • God is doing something downinside of him.
  • 00:06:52.368 --> 00:06:54.237
  • What comes out of the cave isnot gonna be what went into
  • 00:06:54.437 --> 00:06:58.941
  • the cave.
  • 00:06:58.975 --> 00:07:00.309
  • And this is where it gets goodto me, because this is what the
  • 00:07:00.343 --> 00:07:02.512
  • Lord laid on my heart to sharewith somebody.
  • 00:07:02.545 --> 00:07:04.847
  • When this is over, when you comeout, what comes out is not gonna
  • 00:07:04.881 --> 00:07:08.050
  • be the same person that went in.
  • 00:07:08.084 --> 00:07:09.585
  • Some things have happened insideof you, and some things that are
  • 00:07:10.353 --> 00:07:13.222
  • happening inside of you, andsome things that are scheduled
  • 00:07:13.256 --> 00:07:15.925
  • to happen inside of you, aregoing to prohibit this from
  • 00:07:15.958 --> 00:07:19.061
  • being something where you comeout and go back to normal.
  • 00:07:19.095 --> 00:07:21.831
  • There will not be a normal.
  • 00:07:21.864 --> 00:07:23.432
  • There will not be a normal inthe world.
  • 00:07:23.466 --> 00:07:25.468
  • There will not be a normal you,because when you come out of the
  • 00:07:25.501 --> 00:07:28.738
  • cave, you don't come out of thecave like you went in.
  • 00:07:28.771 --> 00:07:31.407
  • God has ordered a shift and achange and a move and the
  • 00:07:31.674 --> 00:07:35.745
  • transformation and a reorderingand a rethinking and a
  • 00:07:35.778 --> 00:07:39.215
  • reevaluating in your life.
  • 00:07:39.248 --> 00:07:40.816
  • When you come out, you're goingto come out on a level that you
  • 00:07:40.850 --> 00:07:43.686
  • were now before.
  • 00:07:43.719 --> 00:07:45.054
  • You're gonna come out on a levelthat none of your fights got ya.
  • 00:07:45.087 --> 00:07:47.590
  • You're gonna come out on a levelthat none of your flights, all
  • 00:07:48.691 --> 00:07:51.327
  • that busy-ness, didn't get you.
  • 00:07:51.360 --> 00:07:53.262
  • This time, a fermentation, whereGod has left you alone and
  • 00:07:53.296 --> 00:07:57.266
  • allowed you to go through sometransformation and deal with
  • 00:07:57.300 --> 00:07:59.702
  • some ghosts and deal with someissues, are going to cause you
  • 00:07:59.735 --> 00:08:02.438
  • to come out differently than howyou went in.
  • 00:08:02.471 --> 00:08:07.410
  • I don't know who I'm talkin' toout there, but I feel like I'm
  • 00:08:07.443 --> 00:08:09.979
  • talking to somebody becauseyou've been trying to
  • 00:08:10.012 --> 00:08:11.714
  • find purpose.
  • 00:08:11.747 --> 00:08:13.082
  • What doest thou here?
  • 00:08:13.115 --> 00:08:14.417
  • Why am I in this situation?
  • 00:08:14.450 --> 00:08:15.785
  • 'Cause what comes out of thecave, is not going to be what
  • 00:08:15.818 --> 00:08:20.890
  • went into the cave.
  • 00:08:20.923 --> 00:08:22.224
  • Now, when God asked Elijah, whatdo us out here, God already knew
  • 00:08:22.258 --> 00:08:28.264
  • why he was there.
  • 00:08:29.031 --> 00:08:30.366
  • Elijah didn't inform God aboutit.
  • 00:08:30.399 --> 00:08:33.202
  • When we pray, we're notinforming God about anything,
  • 00:08:33.235 --> 00:08:36.505
  • God already knows everythingthat we're praying about.
  • 00:08:36.539 --> 00:08:39.408
  • But God is allowing him toevaluate himself to go through a
  • 00:08:39.742 --> 00:08:44.180
  • little bit of therapy.
  • 00:08:44.213 --> 00:08:45.548
  • He's got him on the couch whilehe's in the cave.
  • 00:08:45.581 --> 00:08:47.883
  • That's what I'm trying to say,he's got him on the couch while
  • 00:08:47.917 --> 00:08:50.820
  • he's in the cave.

  • 00:17:40.215 --> 00:17:41.517
  • Hush!
  • 00:17:41.550 --> 00:17:42.885
  • Be still and know that I am God.
  • 00:17:42.918 --> 00:17:46.088
  • In the stillness of the moment.
  • 00:17:47.289 --> 00:17:48.891
  • God touches his attention.
  • 00:17:50.225 --> 00:17:51.960
  • Finally does something thatnothing else can do.
  • 00:17:52.561 --> 00:17:55.631
  • Jezebel's threats couldn't doit, the ravens feeding him
  • 00:17:55.664 --> 00:17:59.568
  • couldn't do it up under thejuniper tree, outrunning the
  • 00:17:59.768 --> 00:18:02.437
  • chariot didn't do it, beinglocked up in the cave didn't do
  • 00:18:02.471 --> 00:18:05.340
  • it, lightning didn't do it, anearthquake didn't do it.
  • 00:18:05.374 --> 00:18:07.509
  • But when he finally got Elijahto shut up, God said, "I got you
  • 00:18:07.543 --> 00:18:16.752
  • here 'cause I got something Iwant to tell you."
  • 00:18:16.785 --> 00:18:21.089
  • I don't know who's watching meright now, but the Lord told me
  • 00:18:21.123 --> 00:18:23.725
  • to tell you that he's got youhere because he's got something
  • 00:18:23.759 --> 00:18:26.295
  • he wants to tell you.
  • 00:18:26.328 --> 00:18:27.629
  • Because your life's been toonoisy, and too busy, and too
  • 00:18:27.663 --> 00:18:31.233
  • fast and, too loud, and toorambunctious, and you
  • 00:18:31.266 --> 00:18:34.703
  • couldn't hear.
  • 00:18:34.736 --> 00:18:36.038
  • You heard thunder, you saw fire,you might have seen lightning.
  • 00:18:36.071 --> 00:18:41.276
  • But none of that was God, God isnot in it.
  • 00:18:42.678 --> 00:18:44.947
  • And because we heard things thatGod was not in, you and I have
  • 00:18:45.747 --> 00:18:49.851
  • made some crazy mistakes.
  • 00:18:49.885 --> 00:18:51.253
  • And I put myself in the listwith you 'cause I know what it
  • 00:18:51.286 --> 00:18:53.855
  • is to go running after thunderonly to find out that God was
  • 00:18:53.889 --> 00:18:57.626
  • not in it.
  • 00:18:57.659 --> 00:18:58.961
  • Do you know the disappointmentof going after lightning or
  • 00:18:58.994 --> 00:19:02.464
  • fire, and thinking that God wasin it, only to find out, oh wow,
  • 00:19:02.497 --> 00:19:07.336
  • I've wasted time?
  • 00:19:07.369 --> 00:19:08.704
  • God was not in it.
  • 00:19:08.737 --> 00:19:10.472
  • And then to deal with the enemysaying, "I thought God--
  • 00:19:10.505 --> 00:19:12.975
  • I thought you knew the voice ofGod, I thought you did dah dah
  • 00:19:13.008 --> 00:19:14.843
  • dah dah dah dah."
  • 00:19:14.876 --> 00:19:16.211
  • And then you have to humbleyourself, and steady yourself,
  • 00:19:16.245 --> 00:19:20.749
  • and still yourself, and comedown to a place where God
  • 00:19:21.250 --> 00:19:24.620
  • can whisper.
  • 00:19:24.653 --> 00:19:25.988
  • And the Lord says he's gotsomething to tell you.
  • 00:19:26.021 --> 00:19:28.890
  • Now don't move.
  • 00:19:30.292 --> 00:19:31.827
  • The Bible says the secret of theLord is with them that fear him,
  • 00:19:33.495 --> 00:19:36.898
  • and he shall show them hiscovenant.
  • 00:19:37.132 --> 00:19:38.867
  • God's got secrets to tell you.
  • 00:19:39.334 --> 00:19:41.069
  • Whoo!
  • 00:19:44.006 --> 00:19:45.340
  • God's got secrets to tell you.
  • 00:19:45.374 --> 00:19:46.675
  • About your purpose, about whyyou're in the earth, about what
  • 00:19:46.708 --> 00:19:52.414
  • he's about to do in your life.
  • 00:19:52.447 --> 00:19:54.182
  • The secret of the Lord is withthem that fear him and he shall
  • 00:19:54.449 --> 00:19:58.453
  • show them his covenant.
  • 00:19:58.487 --> 00:20:00.455
  • And it was a game-changer.
  • 00:20:00.689 --> 00:20:02.024
  • Because all up until now, all wehear out of Elijah is, "Yah,
  • 00:20:02.057 --> 00:20:08.063
  • yah, yah, yah, this is wrong,and that is wrong, those aren't
  • 00:20:09.298 --> 00:20:13.402
  • real, those people arehypocrites, and they're not
  • 00:20:13.435 --> 00:20:15.671
  • doin' it right, if they see mylife--" we don't hear anymore
  • 00:20:15.704 --> 00:20:20.609
  • about them and they after this.
  • 00:20:20.842 --> 00:20:23.979
  • When God got through whisperin'to him, he suddenly recognized
  • 00:20:24.012 --> 00:20:27.316
  • his problem was not about themand it was not about they, and
  • 00:20:27.349 --> 00:20:30.452
  • it was not about the threat ofJezebel or anything like that,
  • 00:20:30.485 --> 00:20:33.221
  • that God had that all up undercontrol.
  • 00:20:33.255 --> 00:20:35.157
  • But I want to talk to somebodywho's been worried about a whole
  • 00:20:35.190 --> 00:20:37.826
  • lot of stuff that really doesn'tmatter, because God can handle
  • 00:20:37.859 --> 00:20:41.129
  • your Jezebel.
  • 00:20:41.163 --> 00:20:42.497
  • God can handle your enemy.
  • 00:20:42.531 --> 00:20:45.701
  • God can handle your anxiety.
  • 00:20:45.734 --> 00:20:47.803
  • God can handle the thing you'reworried about.
  • 00:20:47.836 --> 00:20:50.038
  • God can deal with the problem.
  • 00:20:50.072 --> 00:20:51.573
  • She said, by tomorrow, I'm gonnado to you what was done to them.
  • 00:20:51.606 --> 00:20:56.511
  • But it's way past tomorrow.
  • 00:20:56.545 --> 00:20:58.447
  • 40 days has passed and morethan that, and she hadn't been
  • 00:20:58.480 --> 00:21:02.150
  • able to do it.
  • 00:21:02.184 --> 00:21:03.485
  • Look back and see how manyplaces God has brought you from,
  • 00:21:03.518 --> 00:21:06.521
  • you've escaped snares you didn'teven know you had, overcome
  • 00:21:06.555 --> 00:21:09.491
  • obstacles you didn't even knowexisted.
  • 00:21:09.524 --> 00:21:11.526
  • God has brought you along withhim.
  • 00:21:11.560 --> 00:21:13.228
  • The enemy'd had his way, he'dhave got you in 24 hours, but
  • 00:21:13.261 --> 00:21:16.865
  • God gave you day after day afterday after day after day
  • 00:21:16.898 --> 00:21:19.634
  • after day.
  • 00:21:19.668 --> 00:21:21.002
  • So he doesn't bring you to thecave because he's tryin' to
  • 00:21:21.036 --> 00:21:25.207
  • save you.
  • 00:21:25.240 --> 00:21:26.541
  • He gets you to the cave, bringsyou to the cave, to change your
  • 00:21:26.575 --> 00:21:30.145
  • perspective, Oh, God.
  • 00:21:30.178 --> 00:21:32.914
  • Whoo!
  • 00:21:33.515 --> 00:21:34.816
  • I know I'm talking to somebody.
  • 00:21:34.850 --> 00:21:36.184
  • Somebody oughta call me on thephone and tell me, it's me,
  • 00:21:36.218 --> 00:21:38.720
  • because God brought you to thecave to change your perspective.
  • 00:21:39.054 --> 00:21:44.159
  • Because all you talk about iswhat happened.
  • 00:21:44.359 --> 00:21:46.461
  • That's all you know, is whatyou've been through.
  • 00:21:47.462 --> 00:21:49.798
  • That's all you know, it's whotried to kill you, who tried to
  • 00:21:49.998 --> 00:21:52.634
  • hurt you, who did this, and whodid that, and who did the other,
  • 00:21:52.667 --> 00:21:55.203
  • but that's all you know.
  • 00:21:55.237 --> 00:21:56.738
  • But if you can hear the still,small voice of God, he's going
  • 00:21:58.740 --> 00:22:04.513
  • to lead you into your destinyand away from your history.
  • 00:22:04.546 --> 00:22:09.518
  • In a still, small voice.
  • 00:22:11.820 --> 00:22:14.623
  • God does not deal with theprophets of Baal, he doesn't
  • 00:22:15.023 --> 00:22:18.193
  • talk to him about Jezebel, hedoesn't talk to him about
  • 00:22:18.226 --> 00:22:21.396
  • outrunning the chariot, hedoesn't talk to him about how
  • 00:22:21.430 --> 00:22:24.099
  • hungry he's been, he doesn'teven talk about his isolation
  • 00:22:24.132 --> 00:22:27.769
  • and his confinement.
  • 00:22:28.036 --> 00:22:29.438
  • He said, I want you to head forDamascus and bring your oil with
  • 00:22:29.704 --> 00:22:35.076
  • you, 'cause I'm gonna take youfrom caves to kings.
  • 00:22:35.110 --> 00:22:40.115
  • I want the same for you.
  • 00:22:41.883 --> 00:22:43.218
  • I'm going to take you from cavesto kings.
  • 00:22:43.251 --> 00:22:47.088
  • I couldn't take you to the kingsbefore, 'cause you're so busy
  • 00:22:48.690 --> 00:22:51.326
  • talkin' about what you've beenthrough, I couldn't take
  • 00:22:51.359 --> 00:22:53.128
  • you forward.
  • 00:22:53.161 --> 00:22:54.496
  • I couldn't show you what I'mgoing to do because you keep
  • 00:22:54.529 --> 00:22:56.531
  • telling me about what's alreadyhappened, like I don't know
  • 00:22:56.565 --> 00:22:59.334
  • what happened.
  • 00:22:59.367 --> 00:23:00.669
  • Do you think God doesn't knowwhat happened to you?
  • 00:23:00.702 --> 00:23:02.404
  • Do you think God does notrealize the injustices of the
  • 00:23:02.437 --> 00:23:07.042
  • pain and the trauma you've beenthrough?
  • 00:23:07.075 --> 00:23:09.144
  • God already knows that, but Godwants to whisper something
  • 00:23:09.177 --> 00:23:12.981
  • to you.
  • 00:23:13.014 --> 00:23:14.316
  • And you need to hear what thespirit of the Lord is saying,
  • 00:23:14.349 --> 00:23:18.053
  • 'cause he's gonna show you notonly how to get out of the cave,
  • 00:23:18.954 --> 00:23:21.790
  • but how to get to the king.
  • 00:23:22.624 --> 00:23:24.059
  • This is the Word of the Lord forsomebody.
  • 00:23:25.494 --> 00:23:27.496
  • You were not meant to stay inthis cave, this isolated
  • 00:23:28.563 --> 00:23:34.202
  • perspective, this self-loathing,this agony, this rehearsal of
  • 00:23:34.236 --> 00:23:40.242
  • the same story over and overagain.
  • 00:23:41.276 --> 00:23:44.913
  • Just over and over again, samething.
  • 00:23:45.947 --> 00:23:49.184
  • You've run people away from youbecause nobody wants to be
  • 00:23:49.217 --> 00:23:51.853
  • around you because I alreadyknow what you're going to
  • 00:23:51.887 --> 00:23:53.688
  • talk about.
  • 00:23:53.722 --> 00:23:55.056
  • They already know what's gonnacome up.
  • 00:23:55.090 --> 00:23:56.391
  • Nothing fresh is coming out ofyou.
  • 00:23:56.424 --> 00:23:58.126
  • Everything that's comin' out ofyour well is old water, dank
  • 00:23:58.159 --> 00:24:02.631
  • water, dank smelly water.
  • 00:24:02.664 --> 00:24:05.700
  • You should have living watercoming out of your well.
  • 00:24:05.734 --> 00:24:08.770
  • You should have fresh revelationcome out of your well.
  • 00:24:08.803 --> 00:24:11.840
  • But you become bitter and toxic,and God wants to stop it.
  • 00:24:12.040 --> 00:24:17.779
  • He wants to stop it tonight.
  • 00:24:19.047 --> 00:24:20.682
  • And he wants to stop it, not inthe lightning and the thunder
  • 00:24:22.317 --> 00:24:25.587
  • and the fire, he's going to stopit in a whisper, if you shut up.
  • 00:24:25.620 --> 00:24:30.258
  • I know, that's kind of rude, butI'm gonna say it.
  • 00:24:31.026 --> 00:24:33.295
