  • 00:03:24.187 --> 00:03:27.557
  • This is not about mecoming down to you.
  • 00:03:27.590 --> 00:03:31.928
  • I've already done that.
  • 00:03:31.961 --> 00:03:34.364
  • I came down so that you couldcome up to meet me in the air.
  • 00:03:34.397 --> 00:03:42.772
  • This rapturous moment ofintimacy does not have to be
  • 00:03:42.805 --> 00:03:46.809
  • delayed for eschatology.
  • 00:03:46.843 --> 00:03:49.412
  • It does not have to waitto the ends of the age.
  • 00:03:49.445 --> 00:03:52.849

  • 00:03:56.552 --> 00:03:59.489
  • with the bride.
  • 00:03:59.522 --> 00:04:01.724
  • What did I hear her say asshe sat in her bedchamber
  • 00:04:01.758 --> 00:04:05.928
  • looking out the window?
  • 00:04:05.962 --> 00:04:07.697
  • She said, "Behold, my belovedcometh to me,
  • 00:04:07.730 --> 00:04:12.435
  • skipping across the mountains.
  • 00:04:12.468 --> 00:04:16.139
  • His banner over me is love.
  • 00:04:16.172 --> 00:04:20.343
  • I heard his piercing voicecome through the lattice
  • 00:04:20.376 --> 00:04:24.447
  • of the window and hechallenged me."
  • 00:04:24.480 --> 00:04:27.417
  • He says, "Rise up, mybeloved, and come away."
  • 00:04:27.450 --> 00:04:37.060
  • Because if you are goingto be my lover,
  • 00:04:37.093 --> 00:04:41.798
  • eagles make love in the air.
  • 00:04:41.831 --> 00:04:48.371
  • What stops us from meeting Godon the turf that he's on is that
  • 00:04:49.072 --> 00:04:53.743
  • we are always tied up inthe systems of this world.
  • 00:04:53.776 --> 00:05:00.316
  • So the first point I want togive you today is you cannot
  • 00:05:00.350 --> 00:05:03.920
  • soar until you clear your head.
  • 00:05:03.953 --> 00:05:08.257
  • Clearing your head is the firststep of getting on the level
  • 00:05:11.627 --> 00:05:16.499
  • that you need to be on to dowhat God has called you to do.
  • 00:05:16.532 --> 00:05:21.070
  • When I say clear your head,I'm talking about all the
  • 00:05:21.104 --> 00:05:25.174
  • contaminants that keep youstuck on the ground,
  • 00:05:25.208 --> 00:05:29.946
  • things that weigh downthe human soul,
  • 00:05:29.979 --> 00:05:33.649
  • stop you from being creative,stop you from being--
  • 00:05:33.683 --> 00:05:38.254
  • inventing new thingsand being innovative.
  • 00:05:38.287 --> 00:05:41.958
  • You cannot be innovativeand depressed.
  • 00:05:41.991 --> 00:05:48.231
  • So we've got to deletesome depression,
  • 00:05:48.264 --> 00:05:52.668
  • because depression depresses.
  • 00:05:52.702 --> 00:05:56.139
  • What God is sayingrise up,
  • 00:05:56.172 --> 00:05:58.608
  • depression is sayingstay down.
  • 00:05:58.641 --> 00:06:02.111
  • There's nothingup there for you.
  • 00:06:02.145 --> 00:06:04.647
  • You don't belong up there.
  • 00:06:04.680 --> 00:06:07.116
  • You don't deserveto be up there.
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:09.485
  • You're too young.You're too old.
  • 00:06:09.519 --> 00:06:12.188
  • You're too rich.You're too poor.
  • 00:06:12.221 --> 00:06:14.390
  • You're too black.You're too white.
  • 00:06:14.424 --> 00:06:16.192
  • You're too brown.Stay down.
  • 00:06:16.225 --> 00:06:19.362

  • Something has got to go, andget its bags, and get off this
  • 00:06:30.406 --> 00:06:34.010
  • flight because God isgetting ready to take you
  • 00:06:34.043 --> 00:06:37.246
  • into a dimension that you havenever gone before
  • 00:06:37.280 --> 00:06:40.450
  • and you've got to let it go.
  • 00:06:40.483 --> 00:06:41.984
  • Loose, loose, loose,loose, let it go.
  • 00:06:42.018 --> 00:06:49.592
  • Do you wanna go up in the airand meet with the Master or do
  • 00:06:51.527 --> 00:06:55.665
  • you want to stay on theground and play in your baggage?
  • 00:06:55.698 --> 00:07:00.937
  • This is not for the chickens.
  • 00:07:01.737 --> 00:07:04.740
  • This is not for the ducks.This is not for the geese.
  • 00:07:12.114 --> 00:07:15.518

  • 00:09:18.374 --> 00:09:19.842
  • If they were not able to go toTarshish, it must be that they
