  • God is angry.
  • 00:06:15.826 --> 00:06:19.329
  • Why would God be angryover the ox slipping in a hole
  • 00:06:19.363 --> 00:06:29.373
  • in a road God made?
  • 00:06:31.475 --> 00:06:34.445
  • Could it be that God orderedyour slip?
  • 00:06:34.478 --> 00:06:40.617
  • "Order my steps in your worddear Lord.
  • 00:06:40.651 --> 00:06:48.392

  • Whoo.
  • 00:06:50.994 --> 00:07:00.237

  • Not now.
  • 00:07:28.665 --> 00:07:32.135
  • And Uzzah reaches out to fix itbut when God orders something
  • 00:07:32.169 --> 00:07:42.179
  • nobody can.
  • 00:07:44.014 --> 00:07:45.382
  • That's how you know God orderedit.
  • 00:07:45.415 --> 00:07:49.686
  • When God orders it nobody canand God killed the one who tried
  • 00:07:49.720 --> 00:07:59.730
  • to fix what he had ordered.
  • 00:08:03.133 --> 00:08:04.635
  • He was trying to save the arkof the covenant, but that's
  • 00:08:04.668 --> 00:08:10.007
  • like trying to save God.
  • 00:08:10.040 --> 00:08:11.375
  • You tryin' to save what's tryin'to save you.
  • 00:08:11.408 --> 00:08:15.612
  • That's the kind of stupid stuffSarah did bringing Hagar
  • 00:08:15.646 --> 00:08:21.685
  • in trying to come up with a planto cover up for something she
  • 00:08:21.718 --> 00:08:26.657
  • thought God wasn't God enoughto do.
  • 00:08:26.690 --> 00:08:28.458
  • See, all of these manmade cartsalways mess up all the stuff you
  • 00:08:28.492 --> 00:08:36.300
  • do for yourself by yourselfalways goes awry because if you
  • 00:08:36.333 --> 00:08:40.804
  • can be your own God you wouldn'tneed God, and sometimes God is
  • 00:08:40.837 --> 00:08:45.576
  • revealed in the slip.
  • 00:08:45.609 --> 00:08:46.910
  • I say--oh, that was a shoutingspot and you missed it.
  • 00:08:46.944 --> 00:08:51.315
  • Sometimes God is revealedin the slip.
  • 00:08:51.348 --> 00:08:53.917
  • You thought his greatestpresence was when everything was
  • 00:08:53.951 --> 00:08:57.888
  • going right, but God's greatestpresence shows up when all hell
  • 00:08:57.921 --> 00:09:01.792
  • is breaking loose.
  • 00:09:01.825 --> 00:09:03.160
  • I think he said, "I am a verypresent help in trouble."
  • 00:09:03.193 --> 00:09:07.064
  • If you never get in troubleyou'll never have an experience
  • 00:09:07.097 --> 00:09:11.802
  • with God.
  • 00:09:11.835 --> 00:09:13.136

  • 00:13:11.208 --> 00:13:14.177
  • And David was just a bufferingand a buffering and a buffering
  • 00:13:14.211 --> 00:13:19.082
  • and a buffering and a bufferingand while he buffered for three
  • 00:13:19.115 --> 00:13:23.053
  • months, three months, God ain'tsaying nothing.
  • 00:13:23.086 --> 00:13:27.357
  • David isn't sayin' nothin',they're both upset.
  • 00:13:27.390 --> 00:13:32.529
  • They're just buffering.
  • 00:13:32.562 --> 00:13:35.498
  • See, sometimes when we get madat God, we think that if we
  • 00:13:35.532 --> 00:13:38.368
  • stick out our lips and pout longenough that we'll have a tantrum
  • 00:13:38.401 --> 00:13:41.204
  • and God will change his mind,and God is saying, "I spat* that
  • 00:13:41.238 --> 00:13:44.741
  • little temporary in you that yougot right now.
  • 00:13:44.774 --> 00:13:46.643
  • I'm tougher than you are."
  • 00:13:46.676 --> 00:13:48.144
  • And so, you gotta buffer tillyou break.
  • 00:13:48.178 --> 00:13:50.180
  • You gotta buffer till you break,you gotta buffer till you break.
  • 00:13:50.213 --> 00:13:54.017
  • You have to buffer till youbreak, you have to buffer till
  • 00:13:54.050 --> 00:13:57.120
  • you break, and this is how hebroke 'em.
  • 00:13:57.153 --> 00:13:59.256
  • He started blessing somebodyelse.
  • 00:13:59.289 --> 00:14:02.392
  • Hey!
  • 00:14:02.425 --> 00:14:06.830
  • David was sayin,' "I don'tcare."
  • 00:14:06.863 --> 00:14:09.099
  • And they said, you know, allof Obed Edom daughters are
  • 00:14:09.132 --> 00:14:17.307
  • pregnant, all of his fields aregrowing bringing in twice as
  • 00:14:17.340 --> 00:14:22.078
  • much increase.
  • 00:14:22.112 --> 00:14:23.446
  • Look like everything Obed Edomtouches getting blessed
  • 00:14:23.480 --> 00:14:26.449
  • and David says, "I don't care."
  • 00:14:26.483 --> 00:14:27.784
  • 'Cause God says, "If you won'treceive this blessing, I will
  • 00:14:27.817 --> 00:14:37.827
  • give it to somebody elseand I'll let you watch me bless
  • 00:14:39.963 --> 00:14:46.102
  • somebody else with the blessingthat was meant for you.
  • 00:14:46.136 --> 00:14:50.073
  • I'll do it right in your face.
  • 00:14:50.106 --> 00:14:52.275
  • I'll prepare a table and let yoube a spectator at a meal I meant
  • 00:14:52.309 --> 00:14:58.481
  • for you."
  • 00:14:58.515 --> 00:15:03.486
  • No, it was when David beginsto humble himself and he says,
  • 00:15:09.092 --> 00:15:16.466
  • "I want to go back.
  • 00:15:16.499 --> 00:15:20.136
  • I do care."
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:22.238
  • Somebody say, "I do care."
  • 00:15:22.272 --> 00:15:24.574
  • Stop lying about what you careabout because the christos,
  • 00:15:24.607 --> 00:15:31.614
  • the anointing, is in your care.
  • 00:15:31.648 --> 00:15:34.317
  • You're running from the care'cause caring hurts,
  • 00:15:34.351 --> 00:15:39.656
  • but the anointing isin the caring, that's why God is
  • 00:15:39.689 --> 00:15:49.599
  • using something you careabout to make you stop being
  • 00:15:49.632 --> 00:15:52.936
  • phony, to make you humbleyourself down, and admit I do
  • 00:15:52.969 --> 00:15:56.840
  • need, I do love, I do care, I amthirsty, I am broken;
  • 00:15:56.873 --> 00:16:03.313
  • O Lamb of God, I come.
  • 00:16:03.346 --> 00:16:04.647
  • I'm on my knees, I fall out Icollapse.
  • 00:16:04.681 --> 00:16:06.783
  • I break my alabaster box, Idon't care what people say, I
  • 00:16:06.816 --> 00:16:10.854
  • don't care what they think, I'mwilling to let my hair down.
  • 00:16:10.887 --> 00:16:13.456
  • I'm willing to get down on myknees, I do care.
  • 00:16:13.490 --> 00:16:16.326
  • I don't know who I'm preachingto, but somebody in this room
  • 00:16:16.359 --> 00:16:19.729
  • stop saying you don't careabout something you do, care
  • 00:16:19.763 --> 00:16:22.399
  • about I do care.
  • 00:16:22.432 --> 00:16:26.503
  • And he says, "I want it back."
  • 00:16:26.536 --> 00:16:27.904
  • Somebody holler, "I want itback."
  • 00:16:27.937 --> 00:16:30.473
  • I don't know what your it is,but I want it back.
  • 00:16:30.507 --> 00:16:36.413
  • I want it back.
  • 00:16:36.446 --> 00:16:39.082
  • I want it back.
  • 00:16:39.649 --> 00:16:41.351
  • Say it: I want it back.
  • 00:16:41.384 --> 00:16:43.653
  • Say it again.Say it again.
  • 00:16:43.686 --> 00:16:48.091
  • Now, why go back if you aren'twilling to change?
  • 00:16:48.124 --> 00:16:54.564
  • To keep doing the same thingthe same way expecting
  • 00:16:54.597 --> 00:17:00.970
  • a different result is lunacy,okay?
  • 00:17:01.004 --> 00:17:04.140
  • I'm gonna wrap this up but Iwant you to get this.
  • 00:17:04.174 --> 00:17:05.942
  • That means you gotta be willingto be rerouted.
  • 00:17:05.975 --> 00:17:14.984
  • You have to be willing to changethe way you take it.
  • 00:17:15.018 --> 00:17:20.623
  • You gotta be willing to acceptresponsibility that the way you
  • 00:17:20.657 --> 00:17:25.128
  • did it the first time was wrong.
  • 00:17:25.161 --> 00:17:29.599
  • You built a cart, God didn'twanna be on the cart, the cart
  • 00:17:29.632 --> 00:17:33.236
  • wasn't biblical in the firstplace--I don't have time
  • 00:17:33.269 --> 00:17:36.239
  • to teach it--but God neverwanted to dwell on the back
  • 00:17:36.272 --> 00:17:39.476
  • of a cart, he wanted to reston the shoulders of his priests.
  • 00:17:39.509 --> 00:17:42.745
  • You messed up, you meant well,but you did it wrong and you
  • 00:17:42.779 --> 00:17:46.082
  • have to humble yourself and sayI got it wrong and I'm willing
  • 00:17:46.116 --> 00:17:49.152
  • to change.
  • 00:17:49.185 --> 00:17:50.887
  • Somebody holler, "Change."
  • 00:17:50.920 --> 00:17:53.456
  • So he said this is what I'mgonna do.
  • 00:17:53.490 --> 00:17:55.291
  • That let me give you--these arethe things you need to change.
  • 00:17:55.325 --> 00:17:57.560
  • Three things he changed: Hechanged his plan.
  • 00:17:57.594 --> 00:18:01.030
  • He changed his plan.
  • 00:18:01.064 --> 00:18:03.766
  • He said this time when we get itback I'm not gonna put it
  • 00:18:03.800 --> 00:18:06.169
  • on a cart, I'm gonna put himon the backs of the shoulders
  • 00:18:06.202 --> 00:18:09.038
  • of the priest were going to makecontact with God.
  • 00:18:09.072 --> 00:18:12.242
  • We're not gonna let anythingstand in between us and God.
  • 00:18:12.275 --> 00:18:15.044
  • This time, we're going to bepersonally involved.
  • 00:18:15.078 --> 00:18:17.447
  • This time I'm gonna havethe weight of glory on my
  • 00:18:17.480 --> 00:18:19.883
  • shoulder.
  • 00:18:19.916 --> 00:18:21.484
  • The weight of glory is gonna beon my shoulder.
  • 00:18:21.518 --> 00:18:24.287
  • The weight of glory is gonna beon my shoulder and not going
  • 00:18:24.320 --> 00:18:27.524
  • to get a ox to bear the weightof the glory, I'm gonna bear
  • 00:18:27.557 --> 00:18:30.927
  • the weight of the glory.
  • 00:18:30.960 --> 00:18:33.196
  • This time I'm not gonna takethe position and not do the job,
  • 00:18:33.229 --> 00:18:36.332
  • I'm gonna put the weight on myshoulder.
  • 00:18:36.366 --> 00:18:39.235
  • I'm gonna be responsible.
  • 00:18:39.269 --> 00:18:41.905
  • I'm going to stand up to it.
  • 00:18:41.938 --> 00:18:44.541
  • Do you hear what--I'm talkin'to somebody I don't know who it
  • 00:18:44.574 --> 00:18:45.942
  • is, but you gotta acceptthe weight.
  • 00:18:45.975 --> 00:18:47.810
  • You can't have the glory and nottake the weight.
  • 00:18:47.844 --> 00:18:57.854
  • So number one, he changed hisplan.
  • 00:18:58.588 --> 00:19:03.059
  • Number two, he changed his pace.
  • 00:19:03.092 --> 00:19:06.963
  • For the Bible said that whenthey put the ark of the covenant
  • 00:19:06.996 --> 00:19:11.134
  • on the shoulders of the priests,the Bible said they
  • 00:19:11.167 --> 00:19:14.370
  • started pacing.
  • 00:19:14.404 --> 00:19:15.705
  • And if you read itin the original Hebrew, it means
  • 00:19:15.738 --> 00:19:18.474
  • "big steps."
  • 00:19:18.508 --> 00:19:19.842
  • God said, if I'm gonna do thisin you, you can't be takin'
  • 00:19:19.876 --> 00:19:28.218
  • these little itty bitty stepstalkin' about gradually,
  • 00:19:28.251 --> 00:19:31.387
  • someday, sooner or later, giveme time, it just takes me more
  • 00:19:31.421 --> 00:19:37.694
  • time, I'm not ready yet.
  • 00:19:37.727 --> 00:19:39.796
  • God said, "I'm not walkin'with somebody that's not ready
  • 00:19:39.829 --> 00:19:42.665
  • yet, I'm walkin' with somebodywho's gonna take big paces."
  • 00:19:42.699 --> 00:19:46.569
  • I don't know who I'm preachingto today, but this is your
  • 00:19:46.603 --> 00:19:51.074
  • season to take big paces.
  • 00:19:51.107 --> 00:19:52.976
  • I want somebody to take a bigstep somewhere.
  • 00:19:53.009 --> 00:19:56.279
  • God said, "I'm going to walkwith you if you take big paces.
  • 00:19:56.312 --> 00:20:05.054
  • I'm not gonna walk with youwhile you feel sorry
  • 00:20:05.088 --> 00:20:09.158
  • for yourself and make littleitty bitty steps.
  • 00:20:09.192 --> 00:20:12.362
  • I'm not a God of small steps,I'm a high steppin' God."
  • 00:20:12.395 --> 00:20:17.734
  • Somebody give God a praise.
  • 00:20:17.767 --> 00:20:22.605
  • Tell your neighbor on bothsides, "I said give me some room
  • 00:20:26.242 --> 00:20:29.679
  • 'cause I'm getting ready to takesome big paces."
  • 00:20:29.712 --> 00:20:32.882
  • Enlarge your tents expand yourdwelling places, getting rid
  • 00:20:32.915 --> 00:20:38.921
  • of your small attitude.
  • 00:20:38.955 --> 00:20:40.256
  • This is the season for bigsteps.
  • 00:20:40.290 --> 00:20:42.925
  • I don't know who I'm preachingto but whoever it is, take a
  • 00:20:42.959 --> 00:20:48.197
  • big step.
  • 00:20:48.231 --> 00:20:49.565
  • You might be watching me on yourphone, but take a big step.
  • 00:20:49.599 --> 00:20:53.136
  • You might be sitting in yourliving room and take a big step.
  • 00:20:53.169 --> 00:20:59.809
  • I prophesy to youbefore the year is out, if you
  • 00:21:02.011 --> 00:21:07.083
  • take a big step, God will openup the windows of heaven
  • 00:21:07.116 --> 00:21:12.822
  • and pour you out a blessing.
  • 00:21:12.855 --> 00:21:15.625
  • You won't have room to receive.
  • 00:21:15.658 --> 00:21:18.161
  • For 30 seconds give God a crazypraise.
  • 00:21:18.895 --> 00:21:26.936
  • I see what we've been doingwrong.
  • 00:21:28.938 --> 00:21:31.374
  • We almost got it right.
  • 00:21:31.407 --> 00:21:34.143
  • One minute, I told you to takebig steps and you took big steps
  • 00:21:34.177 --> 00:21:40.149
  • and the next minute I told youto praise the Lord and you
  • 00:21:40.183 --> 00:21:43.653
  • praised the Lord, but whatyou've gotta do is learn how
  • 00:21:43.686 --> 00:21:48.791
  • to take big steps and praisethe Lord at the same--
  • 00:21:48.825 --> 00:21:58.801
  • Well, I'm almost finished.
  • 00:22:09.245 --> 00:22:14.417
  • I feel a rerouting about to takeplace in your life.
  • 00:22:14.450 --> 00:22:21.657
  • This message is a sign thatthe enemies that you see today
  • 00:22:21.691 --> 00:22:30.700
  • you shall see them no more.
  • 00:22:31.868 --> 00:22:36.005
  • This is your breakthrough word.
  • 00:22:36.038 --> 00:22:39.075
  • This is your breakthroughseason.
  • 00:22:39.108 --> 00:22:42.011
  • This is your step out time.
  • 00:22:42.044 --> 00:22:45.281
  • This is your--Shout yes!
  • 00:22:45.314 --> 00:22:49.519
  • There's only one problem.
  • 00:23:08.237 --> 00:23:10.740
  • I told you there were threepoints and I only gave you two.
  • 00:23:10.773 --> 00:23:15.778
  • Number one, he changed his plan.
  • 00:23:15.812 --> 00:23:19.816
  • Number two, he changed his pace,but number three, he changed
  • 00:23:19.849 --> 00:23:27.523
  • his position.
  • 00:23:27.557 --> 00:23:28.891
  • You see, the first time,the people were praising God,
  • 00:23:28.925 --> 00:23:33.729
  • but you don't hear where Davidwas praising him, but this time
  • 00:23:33.763 --> 00:23:39.569
  • David got out in front of itand he started praising God
  • 00:23:39.602 --> 00:23:46.008
  • so much that while he waspraising God he started throwing
  • 00:23:46.042 --> 00:23:52.281
  • off stuff and giving Godthe glory.
  • 00:23:52.315 --> 00:23:56.152
  • And the Lord said, When youthrow your whole self at your
  • 00:23:56.185 --> 00:24:04.627
  • blessing, God's gonna openup the windows of heaven
  • 00:24:04.660 --> 00:24:13.002
  • and pour you out a blessing.
  • 00:24:13.035 --> 00:24:15.505
  • You don't have room enough--
  • 00:24:15.538 --> 00:24:19.141
  • Throweverything you got.
  • 00:24:19.942 --> 00:24:22.912
  • Throw everything you got.
  • 00:24:22.945 --> 00:24:27.783
  • Wait a minute, the Bible saysthat David started dancing.
  • 00:24:30.386 --> 00:24:37.126
  • Jan, the Bible said he dancedout his clothes.
  • 00:24:39.996 --> 00:24:45.167
  • He danced till he lookedlike a stripper.
  • 00:24:46.335 --> 00:24:49.939
  • The Bible said his wife lookedout the window and saw him
  • 00:24:49.972 --> 00:24:54.844
  • and got embarrassed 'cause hehad stripped off his clothes.
  • 00:24:54.877 --> 00:24:59.682
  • I said Lord, what are you sayingto me?
  • 00:24:59.715 --> 00:25:05.154
  • Do you want us to strip out ourclothes?
  • 00:25:05.187 --> 00:25:08.558
  • He said, "No, I want you to tellthem the reason you have not
  • 00:25:08.591 --> 00:25:15.932
  • prevail is that you have neverthrown your whole self
  • 00:25:15.965 --> 00:25:19.569
  • at anything I promised you.
  • 00:25:19.602 --> 00:25:22.905
  • You thought it wouldn't cost younothing," but if you throw
  • 00:25:22.939 --> 00:25:27.577
  • everything in, God said, "I'llthrow everything in.
  • 00:25:27.610 --> 00:25:31.380
  • If you give all you got, I'llgive all I got."
  • 00:25:31.414 --> 00:25:36.452
  • I'm through preaching to you,but I'm gonna give you three
  • 00:25:36.485 --> 00:25:41.857
  • minutes to give God a praisesupernatural.
  • 00:25:41.891 --> 00:25:48.798
  • This is all I got.
  • 00:25:48.831 --> 00:25:52.034
  • Sanctified praise.
  • 00:25:52.068 --> 00:25:54.870
  • Give him that praise.
  • 00:25:54.904 --> 00:25:56.973
