  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS
  • 00:00:14.050 --> 00:00:15.220
  • AND WELCOME AGAIN TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:15.230 --> 00:00:19.010
  • ALL AROUND THE WORLD, PEOPLE ARE ENGAGING IN CONFLICTS WITH OTHER
  • 00:00:19.020 --> 00:00:22.180
  • NATIONS AND EVEN CITIZENS WITHIN THEIR OWN BORDERS.
  • 00:00:22.190 --> 00:00:26.100
  • AND YET THE MOST FIERCELY FOUGHT BATTLES AREN'T TAKING PLACE
  • 00:00:26.110 --> 00:00:30.240
  • ACROSS BORDERS OR ON OUR CITY STREETS
  • 00:00:30.250 --> 00:00:33.200
  • BUT THEY'RE TAKING PLACE IN THE SPIRITUAL, UNSEEN REALM.
  • 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:38.030
  • TODAY, WE'RE LOOKING AT DANIEL CHAPTER 10,
  • 00:00:38.170 --> 00:00:41.260
  • WHICH EXPOSES THE MYSTERIOUS AND INSIDIOUS SPIRITUAL BATTLE
  • 00:00:41.270 --> 00:00:46.030
  • RAGING ALL AROUND US.
  • 00:00:46.040 --> 00:00:48.160
  • DEMONIC WARFARE THREATENED DANIEL
  • 00:00:48.170 --> 00:00:51.000
  • AND IT THREATENS US TODAY!
  • 00:00:51.010 --> 00:00:53.030
  • MY MESSAGE IS TITLED, "THE INVISIBLE WAR"
  • 00:00:53.040 --> 00:00:56.150
  • ON TODAY'S EDITION OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.

  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:59.270 --> 00:01:06.040
  • IN A WORLD THAT OFTEN SEEMS DARK AND HOPELESS
  • 00:01:06.050 --> 00:01:09.030
  • WE CAN FIRMLY ROOT OUR HOPE IN THE FACT THAT JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:12.190
  • IS COMING BACK!
  • 00:01:12.200 --> 00:01:14.010

  • ABOUT THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:01:19.110 --> 00:01:22.080
  • IT WAS RECORDED ON LOCATION AT THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 00:01:22.090 --> 00:01:25.070
  • THE VERY PLACE WHERE JESUS IS GOING TO RETURN!
  • 00:01:25.080 --> 00:01:28.110

  • WHEN YOU GIVE A MINISTRY GIFT TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:01:32.270 --> 00:01:36.000
  • "HE'S COMING BACK AGAIN TO RECLAIM WHAT BELONGS TO HIM.
  • 00:01:36.010 --> 00:01:40.190
  • AND THAT'S WHY THERE MUST BE A LITERAL SECOND COMING
  • 00:01:40.200 --> 00:01:44.140
  • SO THAT HE COULD RETURN TO THIS EARTH.
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:46.210
  • HE CAN WALK ACROSS THAT VALLEY.
  • 00:01:46.220 --> 00:01:48.160
  • HE CAN WALK THROUGH THOSE GATES AND BE RECOGNIZED
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:52.010
  • AS THE RULER OF ALL OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:52.020 --> 00:01:54.120
  • JESUS MESSIAH."
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:56.030
  • DISCOVER WHY YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO THE RETURN
  • 00:01:56.040 --> 00:01:58.270
  • OF CHRIST WITH HOPEFUL JOY AND ANTICIPATION.
  • 00:01:58.280 --> 00:02:01.200
  • REQUEST THE KING IS COMING
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:03.150
  • FROM PATHWAY TO VICTORY TODAY!
  • 00:02:03.160 --> 00:02:05.170
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:05.180 --> 00:02:08.070
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:08.080 --> 00:02:15.010
  • THE BIBLE REVEALS THAT THERE IS AN INVISIBLE,
  • 00:02:15.020 --> 00:02:18.260
  • BUT A VERY REAL WAR GOING ON IN THE UNIVERSE
  • 00:02:18.270 --> 00:02:23.050
  • BETWEEN THE FORCES OF GOD AND THE FORCES OF SATAN.
  • 00:02:23.060 --> 00:02:26.290
  • IT IS THIS INVISIBLE WAR THAT EXPLAINS THE UNREST
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:31.260
  • AMONG NATIONS WE READ ABOUT EVERY DAY.
  • 00:02:31.270 --> 00:02:34.190
  • AND IT'S THIS UNSEEN WAR THAT EXPLAINS THE UNREST
  • 00:02:34.200 --> 00:02:38.090
  • YOU'RE FACING IN YOUR LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:02:38.100 --> 00:02:42.020
  • WRITING MANY DECADES AGO,
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:44.030
  • D. MARTYN LLOYD-JONES SAID, "NOT TO REALIZE THAT YOU
  • 00:02:44.040 --> 00:02:49.210
  • ARE IN A CONFLICT MEANS ONLY ONE THING: AND IT IS
  • 00:02:49.220 --> 00:02:54.090
  • THAT YOU ARE SO HOPELESSLY DEFEATED AND SO KNOCKED OUT
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:58.040
  • AS IT WERE THAT YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW IT.
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:03:01.050
  • YOU'RE UNCONSCIOUS.
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:02.190
  • IT MEANS THAT YOU ARE COMPLETELY
  • 00:03:02.200 --> 00:03:04.180
  • DEFEATED BY THE DEVIL.
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:06.140
  • ANYONE WHO IS NOT AWARE OF THIS FIGHT AND CONFLICT
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:11.150
  • IS IN A DRUGGED AND HAZARDOUS CONDITION."
  • 00:03:11.160 --> 00:03:16.150
  • DANIEL 10 IS ONE OF THOSE RARE INSTANCES IN WHICH GOD
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:21.010
  • ALLOWS US TO PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF THE VISIBLE WORLD
  • 00:03:21.020 --> 00:03:26.080
  • AND SEE THOSE INVISIBLE FORCES THAT ARE CONTROLLING
  • 00:03:26.090 --> 00:03:29.210
  • NOT ONLY WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE HEADLINES EVERY DAY,
  • 00:03:29.220 --> 00:03:32.290
  • BUT THE THINGS, THE STRUGGLES,
  • 00:03:33.000 --> 00:03:34.110
  • THE OPPOSITION YOU'RE FACING IN YOUR LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:38.010
  • AND IT'S THAT INVISIBLE WAR WE'RE GOING TO SEE
  • 00:03:38.020 --> 00:03:40.130
  • DEMONSTRATED TODAY.
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:41.170
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES I WANT YOU TO TURN TO DANIEL 10.
  • 00:03:41.180 --> 00:03:45.050
  • DANIEL 10.
  • 00:03:45.060 --> 00:03:46.270
  • WE ARE COMING TO THE FINAL VISION-
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:49.140
  • CHAPTERS 10, 11, AND 12.
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:51.210
  • NOW, THE ACTUAL VISION,
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:53.140
  • WHICH IS THE MOST DRAMATIC OF ALL THE VISIONS,
  • 00:03:53.150 --> 00:03:56.120
  • DOESN'T ACTUALLY COME UNTIL CHAPTERS 11 AND 12.
  • 00:03:56.130 --> 00:04:00.020
  • BUT WHEN WE COME TO CHAPTER 10 WE FIND
  • 00:04:00.030 --> 00:04:02.100
  • THE PREAMBLE TO THAT VISION.
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:05.060
  • I HEARD ONE NOTED BIBLE EXPOSITOR SAY THERE IS
  • 00:04:05.070 --> 00:04:08.250
  • NOTHING HE COULD FIND AT ALL IN DANIEL 10
  • 00:04:08.260 --> 00:04:12.160
  • WORTH PREACHING ABOUT.
  • 00:04:12.170 --> 00:04:14.050
  • I BEG TO DIFFER.
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:15.270
  • ALL SCRIPTURE IS INSPIRED BY GOD
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:18.200
  • AND IT'S ALL PROFITABLE, AND ALL I HAD TO DO
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:21.010
  • WAS READ THIS THROUGH ONCE AND SEE IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:24.010
  • THE GREAT APPLICATION FOR US IN OUR OWN LIVES
  • 00:04:24.020 --> 00:04:26.200
  • AS WELL AS IN GOD'S PLAN AND PROGRAM
  • 00:04:26.210 --> 00:04:28.150
  • FOR THE FUTURE.
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:29.190
  • NOW, LET'S LOOK AT CHAPTER 10 BEGINNING WITH VERSE ONE,
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:32.200
  • WHEN WE SEE DANIEL RECEIVING A HEAVENLY VISITOR.
  • 00:04:32.210 --> 00:04:35.260
  • LOOK AT VERSE ONE, "IN THE THIRD YEAR OF CYRUS,
  • 00:04:35.270 --> 00:04:39.250
  • KING OF PERSIA, A MESSAGE WAS REVEALED TO DANIEL WHO WAS
  • 00:04:39.260 --> 00:04:44.120
  • NAMED BELTESHAZZAR.
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:46.020
  • REMEMBER THAT WAS HIS NAME GIVEN BY NEBUCHADNEZZAR.
  • 00:04:46.030 --> 00:04:48.290
  • AND THE MESSAGE WAS TRUE AND ONE OF GREAT CONFLICT,
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:51.230
  • BUT HE HAD UNDERSTOOD THE MESSAGE AND HAD AN
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:53.230
  • UNDERSTANDING OF THE VISION."
  • 00:04:53.240 --> 00:04:55.280
  • NOW, THIS GIVES US THE TIME THAT THIS VISION CAME TO DANIEL.
  • 00:04:55.290 --> 00:04:59.100
  • IT WAS IN THE THIRD YEAR OF THE REIGN OF CYRUS,
  • 00:04:59.110 --> 00:05:02.150
  • OR SOMETIMES KNOWN AS DARIUS.
  • 00:05:02.160 --> 00:05:05.010
  • REMEMBER IN THE FIRST YEAR OF CYRUS' REIGN CYRUS TOLD THE
  • 00:05:05.020 --> 00:05:10.030
  • PEOPLE THEY COULD BEGIN TO GO BACK TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:05:10.040 --> 00:05:12.230
  • AND THIS WAS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHESY ISAIAH HAD
  • 00:05:12.240 --> 00:05:16.050
  • MADE 150 YEARS EARLIER BEFORE CYRUS WAS EVEN BORN.
  • 00:05:16.060 --> 00:05:20.290
  • NOW, WE'RE IN THE THIRD YEAR TWO YEARS AFTERWARDS.
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:24.260
  • GOD REVEALS THIS VISION TO DANIEL.
  • 00:05:24.270 --> 00:05:27.170
  • WHAT HAD HAPPENED BY THE TIME DANIEL RECEIVED THIS VISION
  • 00:05:27.180 --> 00:05:30.260
  • ABOUT 43.000 OF THE ISRAELITES HAD GONE BACK TO
  • 00:05:30.270 --> 00:05:35.140
  • JERUSALEM.
  • 00:05:35.150 --> 00:05:36.180
  • AMAZINGLY, MANY CHOSE TO STAY IN BABYLON.
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:42.000
  • THEY HAD BECOME SO COMFORTABLE IN THAT PAGAN
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:44.140
  • LIFESTYLE THAT WHEN THEY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEAVE,
  • 00:05:44.150 --> 00:05:48.030
  • THEY SAID: NO, WE'LL STAY WHERE WE ARE.
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:50.120
  • AND THAT CAUSED GREAT DISTRESS TO DANIEL.
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:52.270
  • WE'LL SEE WHY.
  • 00:05:52.280 --> 00:05:53.170
  • LOOK AT VERSE 2.
  • 00:05:53.180 --> 00:05:54.230
  • "IN THOSE DAYS I, DANIEL, HAD BEEN MOURNING FOR THREE
  • 00:05:54.240 --> 00:05:59.220
  • ENTIRE WEEKS."
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:01.110
  • FOR THREE WEEKS HE MOURNED, HE PRAYED,
  • 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:04.250
  • AND HE FASTED.
  • 00:06:04.260 --> 00:06:05.240
  • WHY WAS HE SO DISTRESSED?
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:08.070
  • NOW, HE WAS DISTRESSED OVER SEVERAL THINGS.
  • 00:06:08.080 --> 00:06:10.190
  • GOD HAD APPARENTLY FULFILLED THIS PROPHESY TO ALLOW THE
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:14.020
  • JEWS TO GO BACK, AND YET SO FEW JEWS WERE ACTUALLY GOING BACK.
  • 00:06:14.030 --> 00:06:18.130
  • AND THEN HE HEARD A REPORT WE'LL FIND LATER IN THE
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:20.120
  • CHAPTER THAT SAYS THE PROGRESS ON THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:06:20.130 --> 00:06:23.050
  • REBUILDING THE TEMPLE, IS NOT GOING WELL.
  • 00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:25.210
  • THERE WERE SO FEW JEWS WHO HAD RETURNED BACK TO
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:28.060
  • JERUSALEM THAT THE PROGRESS ON REBUILDING THE TEMPLE WAS SLOW.
  • 00:06:28.070 --> 00:06:32.000
  • AND NOT ONLY THAT WE FIND OUT THAT IT TOOK 7 MONTHS JUST TO
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:36.130
  • CLEAR THE RUBBLE OF THE TEMPLE THAT HAD BEEN BURNED
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:39.080
  • DOWN BY NEBUCHADNEZZAR.
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:41.120
  • SO IT LOOKED LIKE THAT GOD WAS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:44.280
  • FULFILL HIS PROMISE.
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:46.120
  • AND DANIEL WAS DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:47.270
  • HAVE YOU EVER COME TO THAT PLACE IN YOUR LIFE WHERE YOU
  • 00:06:47.280 --> 00:06:50.170
  • FELT LIKE GOD HAD TOLD YOU SOMETHING?
  • 00:06:50.180 --> 00:06:52.190
  • GOD HAD PROMISED YOU SOMETHING,
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:54.190
  • BUT NOW THINGS WEREN'T WORKING OUT LIKE YOU THOUGHT
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:56.200
  • THEY OUGHT TO?
  • 00:06:56.210 --> 00:06:57.250
  • YOU PRAY AND YOU PRAY AND SOMETHING JUST SEEMS NOT RIGHT.
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:07:02.000
  • IT SEEMS LIKE GOD IS NOT ANSWERING HIS PROMISE TO YOU.
  • 00:07:02.010 --> 00:07:05.200
  • THAT'S HOW DANIEL FELT.
  • 00:07:05.210 --> 00:07:07.140
  • AND SO HE SPENT AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:10.200
  • TIME IN PRAYER AND FASTING. DANIEL WAS DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:07:10.210 --> 00:07:14.070
  • HE DIDN'T KNOW IF GOD WAS GOING TO FULFILL THIS PROMISE OR NOT.
  • 00:07:14.080 --> 00:07:17.140
  • AND SO LOOK WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:18.290
  • HE RECEIVED A HEAVENLY VISITOR.
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:21.070
  • LOOK AT THE BEGINNING OF VERSE FIVE,
  • 00:07:21.080 --> 00:07:22.220
  • "I LIFTED UP MY EYES..."
  • 00:07:22.230 --> 00:07:24.080
  • REMEMBER HE'S IN THE MIDST OF THIS TIME OF PRAYER AND FASTING.
  • 00:07:24.090 --> 00:07:27.010
  • "I LIFTED UP MY EYES AND LOOKED AND BEHOLD THERE WAS A
  • 00:07:27.020 --> 00:07:30.010
  • CERTAIN MAN DRESSED IN LINEN WHOSE WAIST WAS GIRDED WITH A
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:33.280
  • BELT OF PURE GOLD OF UPHAZ.
  • 00:07:33.290 --> 00:07:36.010
  • HIS BODY WAS LIKE BERYL.
  • 00:07:36.020 --> 00:07:37.280
  • HIS FACE HAD THE APPEARANCE OF LIGHTENING.
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:39.270
  • HIS EYES WERE LIKE FLAMING TORCHES.
  • 00:07:39.280 --> 00:07:41.270
  • HIS ARMS AND HIS FEAT THE GLEAM OF POLISHED BRONZE.
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:45.040
  • AND THE SOUND OF HIS WORDS WERE LIKE THE SOUND OF A TUMULT."
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:48.050
  • NOW, I, DANIEL, ALONE SAW THE VISION WHILE THE MEN WHO WERE
  • 00:07:48.060 --> 00:07:51.170
  • WITH ME DID NOT SEE THE VISION.
  • 00:07:51.180 --> 00:07:53.170
  • NEVERTHELESS A GREAT DREAD FELL ON THEM,
  • 00:07:53.180 --> 00:07:56.060
  • AND THEY RAN AWAY TO HIDE FOR THEMSELVES."
  • 00:07:56.070 --> 00:08:00.150
  • NOW, WHAT WAS IT THAT DANIEL SAW?
  • 00:08:00.160 --> 00:08:02.150
  • WHO WAS IT THAT DANIEL SAW THAT CAUSED SUCH DREAD AND
  • 00:08:02.160 --> 00:08:06.060
  • LATER LEFT DANIEL ALMOST LIFELESS?
  • 00:08:06.070 --> 00:08:09.220
  • FROM THE DESCRIPTION IT IS VERY CLEAR WHOM DANIEL SAW.
  • 00:08:09.230 --> 00:08:13.220
  • AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT IN MIND YET TURN OVER TO
  • 00:08:13.230 --> 00:08:17.050
  • REVELATION 1:12.
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:24.030
  • LOOK AT THIS DESCRIPTION.
  • 00:08:24.040 --> 00:08:25.080
  • REMEMBER JOHN HAD BEEN EXILED TO THE ISLAND OF PATMOS.
  • 00:08:25.090 --> 00:08:29.170
  • HE WAS THERE BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO BOW DOWN TO BEFORE
  • 00:08:29.180 --> 00:08:32.010
  • THE EMPEROR.
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:33.040
  • AND IT WAS THERE WHILE HE WAS IN EXILE ON PATMOS THAT
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:38.030
  • SOMEBODY APPEARED TO HIM.
  • 00:08:38.040 --> 00:08:39.250
  • IT WAS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:41.160
  • AND LOOK AT THE DESCRIPTION IN VERSE 12.
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:44.070
  • JOHN SAYS, "THEN I TURNED TO SEE THE VOICE THAT WAS
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:47.120
  • SPEAKING WITH ME.
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:48.240
  • AND HAVING TURNED I SAW 7 GOLDEN LAMPSTANDS.
  • 00:08:48.250 --> 00:08:52.120
  • AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAMPSTANDS I SAW ONE LIKE A
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:55.070
  • SON OF MAN CLOTHED IN A ROBE REACHING TO THE FEET AND
  • 00:08:55.080 --> 00:08:59.010
  • GIRDED ACROSS HIS CHEST WITH A GOLDEN SASH.
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:02.010
  • HIS HEAD AND HIS HAIR WERE WHITE LIKE WOOL,
  • 00:09:02.020 --> 00:09:06.040
  • LIKE SNOW.
  • 00:09:06.050 --> 00:09:07.000
  • AND HIS EYES WERE LIKE A FLAME OF FIRE.
  • 00:09:07.010 --> 00:09:09.190
  • HIS FEET WERE LIKE BURNISHED BRONZE WHEN IT HAD BEEN MADE
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:12.280
  • TO GLOW IN A FURNACE.
  • 00:09:12.290 --> 00:09:14.190
  • AND HIS VOICE WAS LIKE THE SOUND OF MANY WATERS."
  • 00:09:14.200 --> 00:09:17.280
  • NOW, LOOK A VERSE 16.
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:19.090
  • "IN HIS RIGHT HAND HE HELD 7 STARS AND OUT OF HIS MOUTH
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:23.210
  • CAME A SHARP TWO-EDGED SWORD.
  • 00:09:23.220 --> 00:09:25.220
  • AND HIS FACE WAS LIKE THE SUN SHINING IN ITS STRENGTH.
  • 00:09:25.230 --> 00:09:29.090
  • WHEN I SAW HIM I FELL AT HIS FEET LIKE A DEAD MAN,
  • 00:09:29.100 --> 00:09:33.160
  • AND HE PLACED HIS RIGHT HAND ON ME SAYING,
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:35.270
  • 'DO NOT BE AFRAID.
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:37.180
  • I AM THE FIRST AND LAST AND THE LIVING ONE.
  • 00:09:37.190 --> 00:09:40.180
  • AND I WAS DEAD AND BEHOLD I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE.
  • 00:09:40.190 --> 00:09:43.190
  • AND I HAVE THE KEYS OF DEATH AND OF HADES.'" VERSE 19.
  • 00:09:43.200 --> 00:09:47.120
  • "THEREFORE WRITE THE THINGS WHICH YOU HAVE SEEN,
  • 00:09:47.130 --> 00:09:50.070
  • THE THINGS WHICH ARE, THE THINGS WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:52.200
  • AFTER THESE THINGS."
  • 00:09:52.210 --> 00:09:53.280
  • THAT'S AN OUTLINE RIGHT THERE OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:09:53.290 --> 00:09:56.270
  • AND THEN HE SAYS IN VERSE 20.
  • 00:09:56.280 --> 00:09:58.160
  • "AS FOR THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVEN STARS WHICH YOU SAW IN
  • 00:09:58.170 --> 00:10:01.270
  • MY RIGHT HAND AND THE SEVEN GOLDEN LAMPSTANDS:
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:05.010
  • THE SEVEN STARS ARE THE ANGELS OF THE SEVEN CHURCHES
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:08.130
  • AND THE SEVEN LAMPSTANDS ARE THE SEVEN CHURCHES."
  • 00:10:08.140 --> 00:10:12.110
  • THE REASON JESUS APPEARED TO JOHN AT PATMOS WAS TO
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:18.150
  • ENCOURAGE HIM THAT HE WAS STILL IN CONTROL.
  • 00:10:18.160 --> 00:10:21.100
  • AND THAT'S THE REASON THAT JESUS APPEARED TO DANIEL
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:25.000
  • EARLIER-500 YEARS EARLIER.
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:27.100
  • HE SAID: I'M GETTING READY TO SHOW YOU A VISION OF THINGS
  • 00:10:27.110 --> 00:10:30.020
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:10:30.030 --> 00:10:31.250
  • THEY'RE FRIGHTENING, BUT KNOW THAT I AM IN CONTROL.
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:35.220
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, DO YOU HAVE THAT ASSURANCE?
  • 00:10:35.230 --> 00:10:37.190
  • DO YOU KNOW GOD IS IN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:40.090
  • NOW, THAT'S WHY JESUS APPEARED TO THE PROPHET
  • 00:10:40.100 --> 00:10:43.200
  • DANIEL HERE.
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:44.210
  • NOW, LOOK AT VERSES EIGHT AND NINE.
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:46.220
  • HE SAYS, "SO I WAS LEFT ALONE AND I SAW THIS GREAT VISION.
  • 00:10:46.230 --> 00:10:51.000
  • YET NO STRENGTH WAS LEFT IN ME FOR ME NATURAL COLOR
  • 00:10:51.010 --> 00:10:54.140
  • TURNED TO A DEATHLY PALLOR, AND I RETAINED NO STRENGTH.
  • 00:10:54.150 --> 00:10:58.050
  • BUT I HEARD THE SOUND OF HIS WORDS AND AS SOON AS I HEARD
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:11:00.280
  • THE SOUND OF HIS WORDS I FELL INTO A DEEP SLEEP ON MY FACE
  • 00:11:00.290 --> 00:11:04.190
  • WITH MY FACE TO THE GROUND.
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:07.060
  • THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOMEBODY COMES FACE TO FACE
  • 00:11:07.070 --> 00:11:10.140
  • WITH GOD.
  • 00:11:10.150 --> 00:11:12.010
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU REALLY COME FACE-TO-FACE WITH GOD
  • 00:11:12.020 --> 00:11:15.050
  • YOU CAN'T HELP BUT TREMBLE AND FALL TO YOUR KNEES.
  • 00:11:15.060 --> 00:11:17.280
  • REMEMBER THE STORY OF ISAIAH?
  • 00:11:17.290 --> 00:11:19.110
  • ISAIAH CHAPTER 6?
  • 00:11:19.120 --> 00:11:20.200
  • WHEN ISAIAH SAW THAT VISION OF THE LORD HIGH AND LIFTED
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:23.190
  • UP, THE TRAIN OF HIS ROBE FILLING THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:11:23.200 --> 00:11:26.060
  • THE ANGELS FLYING AROUND SINGING: HOLY HOLY HOLY.
  • 00:11:26.070 --> 00:11:30.070
  • WHAT DID ISAIAH DO?
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:31.190
  • HE FELL TO HIS FEET AND SAID WOE IS ME
  • 00:11:31.200 --> 00:11:33.220
  • FOR I AM A MAN OF UNCLEAN LIPS.
  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:36.220
  • NONE OF US IS WORTHY TO STAND IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:40.140
  • JOHN WASN'T.
  • 00:11:40.150 --> 00:11:41.090
  • DANIEL WASN'T.
  • 00:11:41.100 --> 00:11:42.100
  • WE AREN'T.
  • 00:11:42.110 --> 00:11:43.020
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WE'VE ALL SINNED.
  • 00:11:43.030 --> 00:11:44.270
  • WE'VE ALL FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:11:44.280 --> 00:11:47.120
  • IT IS ONLY WHEN WE WRAP OURSELVES IN THE
  • 00:11:47.130 --> 00:11:49.200
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS CHRIST THAT WE ARE WORTHY TO STAND
  • 00:11:49.210 --> 00:11:54.000
  • IN HIS PRESENCE.
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:55.140
  • SO WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:11:55.150 --> 00:11:56.070
  • LOOK IN VERSES 10-21.
  • 00:11:56.080 --> 00:11:58.180
  • HE HAD JUST SEEN A VISION OF THE RESURRECTED CHRIST.
  • 00:11:58.190 --> 00:12:02.030
  • NOW, GOD SENDS A HEAVENLY HELPER TO HELP DANIEL AS WELL
  • 00:12:02.040 --> 00:12:06.280
  • AS REVEAL THE VISION TO HIM OF THE FUTURE.
  • 00:12:06.290 --> 00:12:09.120
  • LOOK AT VERSE 10, "THEN BEHOLD A MAN TOUCHED ME AND
  • 00:12:09.130 --> 00:12:13.060
  • SET ME TREMBLING ON MY HANDS AND KNEES,
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:15.250
  • AND HE SAID TO ME, 'OH, DANIEL.
  • 00:12:15.260 --> 00:12:18.110
  • MAN OF HIGH ESTEEM UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THAT I'M ABOUT TO
  • 00:12:18.120 --> 00:12:22.200
  • TELL YOU AND STAND UPRIGHT.
  • 00:12:22.210 --> 00:12:25.040
  • FOR I HAVE NOW BEEN SENT TO YOU.' AND WHEN HE HAS SPOKEN
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:28.270
  • THIS WORD TO ME I STOOD UP TREMBLING."
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:31.290
  • NOW, I WANT YOU TO UNDERLINE THE PHRASE IN VERSE 11,
  • 00:12:32.000 --> 00:12:34.290
  • "MAN OF HIGH ESTEEM."
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:37.280
  • THIS IS A PHRASE THAT IS USED REPEATEDLY TO DESCRIBE DANIEL
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:41.270
  • AND SPECIFICALLY IT IS HOW GOD VIEWED DANIEL.
  • 00:12:41.280 --> 00:12:46.290
  • HE THOUGHT OF HIM AS A MAN WORTHY OF HIS ESTEEM.
  • 00:12:47.000 --> 00:12:51.270
  • NOW, LOOK AT VERSE 12.
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:54.010
  • THE HELPERS CONFLICT.
  • 00:12:54.020 --> 00:12:56.080
  • "THEN THE ANGEL SAID TO ME," NOW HE IS NOT NAMED,
  • 00:12:56.090 --> 00:12:59.130
  • BUT SOME PEOPLE THINK IT'S GABRIEL.
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:01.130
  • I DON'T THINK IT'S GABRIEL BECAUSE GABRIEL WAS NAMED A
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:04.210
  • FEW CHAPTERS BEFORE.
  • 00:13:04.220 --> 00:13:06.080
  • IT'S AN UNSEEN ANGEL, BUT IT'S A GOOD ANGEL.
  • 00:13:06.090 --> 00:13:08.240
  • "THEN THIS ANGEL SAID TO ME, 'DO NOT BE AFRAID, DANIEL.
  • 00:13:08.250 --> 00:13:12.060
  • FOR FROM THE FIRST DAY THAT YOU SET YOUR HEART ON
  • 00:13:12.070 --> 00:13:15.020
  • UNDERSTANDING THIS AND ON HUMBLING YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:18.010
  • GOD YOUR WORDS WERE HEARD AND I'VE COME IN RESPONSE TO YOUR
  • 00:13:18.020 --> 00:13:22.150
  • WORDS.'" NOW, HOW LONG HAD DANIEL BEEN PRAYING?
  • 00:13:22.160 --> 00:13:26.000
  • VERSE 2 SAYS HE'S BEEN PRAYING FOR 3 WEEKS,
  • 00:13:27.030 --> 00:13:30.090
  • FOR 21 DAYS.
  • 00:13:30.100 --> 00:13:31.220
  • THE ANGEL SAID: NOW, I WANT YOU TO KNOW AS SOON AS I
  • 00:13:31.230 --> 00:13:34.240
  • HEARD GOD SENT ME TO ANSWER YOUR PRAYER.
  • 00:13:34.250 --> 00:13:38.030
  • BUT NOTICE VERSE 13.
  • 00:13:38.040 --> 00:13:39.280
  • "BUT THE PRINCE OF THE KINGDOM OF PERSIA WAS
  • 00:13:39.290 --> 00:13:44.100
  • WITHSTANDING ME FOR 21 DAYS."
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:46.190
  • HOW LONG IS THAT?
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:48.040
  • THREE WEEKS.
  • 00:13:48.050 --> 00:13:49.120
  • "THEN BEHOLD MICHAEL ONE OF THE CHIEF PRINCES CAME TO ME
  • 00:13:49.130 --> 00:13:52.140
  • FOR I HAD BEEN LEFT THERE WITH THE KINGS OF PERSIA."
  • 00:13:52.150 --> 00:13:55.070
  • IN OTHER WORDS THIS GOOD ANGEL SAID: YOU'VE PROBABLY
  • 00:13:55.080 --> 00:13:58.240
  • WONDERED WHY I DIDN'T COME EARLIER.
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:01.000
  • I WAS ON MY WAY.
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:02.100
  • THE MOMENT YOU STARTED PRAYING,
  • 00:14:02.110 --> 00:14:04.170
  • BUT I WAS HINDERED FOR THREE WEEKS FROM COMING BECAUSE OF
  • 00:14:04.180 --> 00:14:08.010
  • THE PRINCE OF THE KINGDOM OF PERSIA.
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:11.260
  • AND I WAS THWARTED FROM COMING UNTIL FINALLY MICHAEL, WHO LATER
  • 00:14:11.270 --> 00:14:15.280
  • IN CHAPTER 12 IS IDENTIFIED AS THE DEFENDER OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:14:15.290 --> 00:14:18.250
  • UNTIL MICHAEL CAME AND CLEARED THE WAY FOR ME TO
  • 00:14:18.260 --> 00:14:21.270
  • BE ABLE TO COME.
  • 00:14:21.280 --> 00:14:23.020
  • NOW, THE QUESTION IS IN VERSE 13 WHO IS THE PRINCE OF THE
  • 00:14:23.030 --> 00:14:27.030
  • KINGDOM OF PERSIA THAT COULD KEEP AN ANGEL
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:30.090
  • FROM COMING TO DANIEL?
  • 00:14:30.100 --> 00:14:32.110
  • NOW, OBVIOUSLY THIS IS NOT A HUMAN PRINCE.
  • 00:14:33.000 --> 00:14:38.050
  • NO HUMAN BEING COULD STOP AN ANGEL.
  • 00:14:38.060 --> 00:14:40.220
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT TELLS US OF AN OCCASION IN WHICH ONE
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:44.100
  • ANGEL KILLED 186.000 ASSYRIAN SOLDIERS.
  • 00:14:44.110 --> 00:14:48.010
  • SO NO HUMAN BEING IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO STOP AN ANGEL.
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:52.190
  • IT'S VERY CLEAR HERE THAT THE PRINCE OF THE KINGDOM OF PERSIA
  • 00:14:52.200 --> 00:14:57.010
  • IS A DEMON, A FALLEN ANGEL THAT DID HEAVENLY
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:15:02.230
  • BATTLE AGAINST THIS GOOD ANGEL WHO WAS ATTEMPTING
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:06.260
  • TO ANSWER DANIEL'S PRAYER.
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:09.000
  • THIS VERSE REMINDS US THAT THERE IS AN UNSEEN BUT VERY
  • 00:15:09.290 --> 00:15:13.090
  • REAL WAR GOING ON BETWEEN NATIONS AS WELL IN OUR OWN
  • 00:15:13.100 --> 00:15:16.290
  • HEARTS AS WELL.
  • 00:15:17.000 --> 00:15:18.050
  • EPHESIANS 6:12 SAYS, "FOR OUR STRUGGLE IS NOT AGAINST FLESH
  • 00:15:18.060 --> 00:15:22.190
  • AND BLOOD, BUT IT IS AGAINST THE RULERS,
  • 00:15:22.200 --> 00:15:25.240
  • AGAINST THE POWERS, AGAINST THE WORLD FORCES OF THIS
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:28.230
  • DARKNESS, AGAINST THE SPIRITUAL FORCES OF WICKEDNESS
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:33.090
  • IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES."
  • 00:15:33.100 --> 00:15:35.010
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS AN UNSEEN BUT REAL WAR GOING ON,
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:39.190
  • AND THIS WAR IS GOING TO ESPECIALLY MANIFEST ITSELF IN
  • 00:15:39.200 --> 00:15:43.260
  • FUTURE ATTACKS AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:43.270 --> 00:15:46.170
  • WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU IS THAT THROUGHOUT HISTORY ALL
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:50.060
  • THE ATTACKS AGAINST ISRAEL HAVE BEEN DEMONICALLY INSPIRED.
  • 00:15:50.070 --> 00:15:55.010
  • AND THE REASON IS: SATAN HAS A SPECIAL INTEREST IN WIPING
  • 00:15:55.020 --> 00:15:59.040
  • ISRAEL OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:15:59.050 --> 00:16:01.080
  • BECAUSE IF HE CAN DO THAT, IF HE CAN ACCOMPLISH THAT,
  • 00:16:01.090 --> 00:16:04.100
  • HE CAN NEGATE THE PROMISE THAT GOD HAS MADE TO TAKE
  • 00:16:04.110 --> 00:16:07.250
  • CARE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:16:07.260 --> 00:16:08.210
  • HE CAN DISCREDIT ALMIGHTY GOD.
  • 00:16:08.220 --> 00:16:11.090
  • GOD HAS NOT MADE A PROMISE TO TAKE CARE
  • 00:16:11.100 --> 00:16:13.050
  • OF ANY OTHER NATION IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:13.060 --> 00:16:14.180
  • YOU UNDERSTAND THAT, DON'T YOU?
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:16.010
  • NO NATION HAS EVER BEEN PROMISED THAT IT WILL
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:18.250
  • SURVIVE UNTIL THE END TIME.
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:20.250
  • AMERICA HAS NOT RECEIVED THAT PROMISE.
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:23.280
  • GREECE HAS NOT RECEIVED THAT PROMISE.
  • 00:16:23.290 --> 00:16:26.050
  • EGYPT HAS NOT RECEIVED THAT PROMISE.
  • 00:16:26.060 --> 00:16:28.050
  • ONLY ISRAEL HAS BEEN PROMISED THAT
  • 00:16:28.060 --> 00:16:30.210
  • SHE WILL SURVIVE UNTIL THE END.
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:33.070
  • AND SO SATAN WANTS TO DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO
  • 00:16:33.080 --> 00:16:35.120
  • DISCREDIT GOD'S PURPOSE.
  • 00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:37.290
  • AND THAT'S WHY SINCE THE BEGINNING OF ISRAEL'S DAY
  • 00:16:38.000 --> 00:16:40.190
  • SATANICALLY INSPIRED LEADERS HAVE TRIED TO DESTROY ISRAEL
  • 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:44.260
  • AND KEEP GOD FROM FULFILLING HIS PURPOSE.
  • 00:16:44.270 --> 00:16:47.050
  • WE'RE GOING TO SEE NEXT WEEK IN CHAPTER 12
  • 00:16:47.060 --> 00:16:50.150
  • THAT WERE IT NOT FOR MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
  • 00:16:50.160 --> 00:16:52.210
  • WHO IS CALLED THE DEFENDER OF ISRAEL -HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR
  • 00:16:52.220 --> 00:16:56.060
  • MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, ISRAEL WOULD HAVE BEEN DESTROYED.
  • 00:16:56.070 --> 00:16:59.140
  • AND WERE IT NOT FOR MICHAEL WHO WILL TAKE A STAND AT THE
  • 00:16:59.150 --> 00:17:02.080
  • END OF TIME ISRAEL WOULD BE DESTROYED UNDER THE
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:04.280
  • ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:17:04.290 --> 00:17:06.050
  • BUT GOD HAS GIVEN ISRAEL MICHAEL TO BE HER DEFENDER.
  • 00:17:06.060 --> 00:17:10.090
  • AND THAT SAYS SOMETHING TO ME VERY VERY CLEARLY.
  • 00:17:10.100 --> 00:17:13.040
  • ANY NATION THAT OPPOSES ISRAEL IS ON THE LOSING SIDE
  • 00:17:13.050 --> 00:17:19.190
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE OPPOSING THE PLAN OF ALMIGHTY GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:23.120
  • AND WE NEED TO REMEMBER THAT AS A NATION.
  • 00:17:23.130 --> 00:17:25.250
  • GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM: I WILL BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS YOU,
  • 00:17:25.260 --> 00:17:29.170
  • AND I WILL CURSE THOSE WHO CURSE YOU.
  • 00:17:29.180 --> 00:17:33.020
  • I BELIEVE RIGHT NOW BEHIND THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT THAT
  • 00:17:33.030 --> 00:17:38.140
  • IS PERSECUTING MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:41.180
  • BEHIND THE HUMAN LEADERS OF CHINA THERE IS A DEMONIC
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:45.170
  • FORCE THAT IS INSPIRING THE PERSECUTION OF GOD'S PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:45.180 --> 00:17:49.240
  • AND IN THE LAST DAY THERE WILL BE A HUMAN LEADER,
  • 00:17:49.250 --> 00:17:53.070
  • THE ANTICHRIST, WHO WILL BE DEMONICALLY INSPIRED TO TRY
  • 00:17:53.080 --> 00:17:56.170
  • AND DESTROY ISRAEL.
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:58.130
  • NOW, THAT'S THE VISION THAT DANIEL SAW.
  • 00:17:58.140 --> 00:18:00.290
  • LOOK AT VERSE 14.
  • 00:18:01.000 --> 00:18:02.220
  • NOW, THIS GOOD ANGEL SAID: I WAS COMING.
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:06.110
  • I WANTED TO DELIVER THIS MESSAGE TO YOU,
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:09.040
  • BUT I WAS PREVENTED FROM DOING SO BY THE DEMON,
  • 00:18:09.050 --> 00:18:12.030
  • THE PRINCE OF PERSIA.
  • 00:18:12.040 --> 00:18:13.140
  • BUT LOOK AT VERSE 14,
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:14.230
  • "BUT NOW HAVE I COME TO GIVE YOU AN UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:18:14.240 --> 00:18:17.170
  • OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOUR PEOPLE IN THE LATTER DAYS
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:21.170
  • FOR THE VISION PERTAINS TO THE DAYS YET FUTURE."
  • 00:18:21.180 --> 00:18:24.270
  • AS YOU'VE HEARD BEFORE THERE ARE THOSE WHO SAY:
  • 00:18:25.100 --> 00:18:27.150
  • ALL THE BOOK OF DANIEL, ALL THE BOOK OF REVELATION
  • 00:18:27.160 --> 00:18:30.090
  • HAVE ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED.
  • 00:18:30.100 --> 00:18:31.040
  • IT'S JUST HISTORY.
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:32.030
  • NO.
  • 00:18:32.040 --> 00:18:32.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THIS IS YET FUTURE.
  • 00:18:32.270 --> 00:18:34.210
  • IT IS YET TO COME.
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:36.150
  • AND LOOK AT VERSE 20, "THEN HE SAID," THE ANGEL SAID,
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:40.000
  • "DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHY I CAME TO YOU?
  • 00:18:40.010 --> 00:18:42.020
  • BUT I SHALL NOW RETURN TO FIGHT AGAINST THE
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:44.180
  • PRINCE OF PERSIA.
  • 00:18:44.190 --> 00:18:45.280
  • SO I'M GOING FORTH AND BEHOLD THE PRINCE OF GREECE
  • 00:18:45.290 --> 00:18:48.200
  • IS ABOUT TO COME.
  • 00:18:48.210 --> 00:18:50.030
  • HOWEVER, I WILL TELL YOU WHAT IS INSCRIBED
  • 00:18:50.040 --> 00:18:52.020
  • IN THE WRITING OF TRUTH.
  • 00:18:52.030 --> 00:18:53.270
  • YET THERE IS NO ONE THAT STANDS FIRMLY WITH ME AGAINST
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:56.260
  • THESE FORCES EXCEPT MICHAEL, YOUR PRINCE."
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:19:01.100
  • THE GOOD ANGEL SAYS: DANIEL, I'M GOING TO REVEAL THIS TO
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:05.290
  • YOU, BUT I'M GOING BACK TO DO BATTLE WITH THE DEMON,
  • 00:19:06.000 --> 00:19:09.120
  • THE PRINCE OF PERSIA,
  • 00:19:09.130 --> 00:19:10.230
  • AND THE ONE WHO IS LEADING GREECE AS WELL.
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:13.240
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THAT SAYS TO ME?
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:15.090
  • IT SAYS TO ME SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS NEVER OVER.
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:19.200
  • THERE'S NEVER A TIME YOU AND I CAN RELAX AND SAY:
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:23.030
  • WE'VE SUCCEEDED.
  • 00:19:23.040 --> 00:19:24.220
  • WE'RE VICTORIOUS.
  • 00:19:24.230 --> 00:19:26.140
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WE WILL FIGHT AGAINST THE SPIRITUAL FORCES
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:29.290
  • OF DARKNESS UNTIL THE DAY THE LORD RETURNS FOR US.
  • 00:19:30.000 --> 00:19:33.270
  • EPHESIANS 6:12 AGAIN SAYS, "FOR OUR STRUGGLE IS NOT
  • 00:19:33.280 --> 00:19:40.010
  • AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD."
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:42.020
  • YOU'VE HEARD ME SAY BEFORE THAT WORD "STRUGGLE" IS THE
  • 00:19:43.140 --> 00:19:46.000
  • GREEK WORD "PALE."
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:48.080
  • IT REFERS TO WRESTLING MATCH IN THE GREEK TIMES.
  • 00:19:48.090 --> 00:19:52.110
  • IT WAS A LIFE AND DEATH MATCH.
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:53.230
  • WHOEVER LOST A WRESTLING MATCH WOULD HAVE HIS EYES
  • 00:19:53.240 --> 00:19:56.290
  • GOUGED OUT FIRST AND THEN BE EXECUTED.
  • 00:19:57.000 --> 00:20:01.150
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IS THE KIND OF STRUGGLE YOU
  • 00:20:04.020 --> 00:20:07.090
  • AND I ARE ENGAGED IN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:07.100 --> 00:20:09.090
  • OUR STRUGGLE IS NOT AGAINST OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:10.110 --> 00:20:13.160
  • YOUR STRUGGLE IS NOT AGAINST THAT OBSTINATE
  • 00:20:14.120 --> 00:20:17.040
  • BOSS YOU WORK FOR.
  • 00:20:17.050 --> 00:20:19.100
  • IT'S NOT AGAINST THAT UNLOVING AND UNCARING MATE.
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:23.050
  • YOUR STRUGGLE IS NOT WITH THAT REBELLIOUS CHILD
  • 00:20:23.290 --> 00:20:26.090
  • WHO WON'T OBEY YOU OR GOD.
  • 00:20:26.100 --> 00:20:28.130
  • NO.
  • 00:20:28.140 --> 00:20:29.140
  • OUR STRUGGLE IS NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD.
  • 00:20:29.150 --> 00:20:32.230
  • IT'S AGAINST THE RULERS, AGAINST THE POWERS,
  • 00:20:32.240 --> 00:20:35.230
  • AGAINST THE WORLD FORCES OF THIS DARKNESS,
  • 00:20:35.240 --> 00:20:38.030
  • AGAINST THE HEAVENLY FORCES OF WICKEDNESS
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:40.100
  • IN THE HIGH PLACES.
  • 00:20:40.110 --> 00:20:42.250
  • AND THAT'S WHY IF WE'RE GOING TO WIN THIS BATTLE
  • 00:20:42.260 --> 00:20:45.050
  • WE HAVE TO PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD.
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:48.210
  • I WANT YOU TO IMAGINE FOR JUST A MOMENT
  • 00:20:49.060 --> 00:20:51.110
  • YOU'RE DRIVING HOME ONE EVENING AT DUSK.
  • 00:20:52.010 --> 00:20:56.130
  • YOU'RE LISTENING TO THE NEWS ON THE RADIO AND YOU HEAR A
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:58.170
  • NEWS REPORT THAT A LION HAS ESCAPED THE LOCAL ZOO,
  • 00:20:58.180 --> 00:21:03.240
  • AND IT WAS LAST SEEN ROAMING UP AND DOWN THE STREETS OF
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:07.210
  • YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:21:07.220 --> 00:21:09.050
  • AS YOU PULLED INTO YOUR DRIVEWAY BEFORE YOU GOT OUT OF YOUR CAR
  • 00:21:10.050 --> 00:21:13.200
  • DON'T YOU IMAGINE YOU MIGHT LOOK AROUND?
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:17.000
  • YOUR EYES MIGHT DART BACK AND FORTH TO SEE IF THERE'S ANY
  • 00:21:17.280 --> 00:21:20.190
  • MOVEMENT IN THE SHADOWS AT ALL.
  • 00:21:20.200 --> 00:21:23.020
  • AND ONLY WHEN YOU FELT IT WAS OKAY YOU WOULD
  • 00:21:23.030 --> 00:21:25.220
  • RUN INTO YOUR HOME.
  • 00:21:25.230 --> 00:21:27.010
  • AND YET YOU REALLY WOULDN'T FEEL SAFE UNTIL THAT LION HAD
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:29.180
  • BEEN APPREHENDED.
  • 00:21:29.190 --> 00:21:31.190
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, A LION HAS BEEN LOOSED.
  • 00:21:32.230 --> 00:21:35.070
  • 1 PETER 5:8 SAYS, "BE OF SOBER SPIRIT.
  • 00:21:36.120 --> 00:21:39.020
  • BE ON THE ALERT.
  • 00:21:39.030 --> 00:21:40.050
  • FOR YOUR ADVISORY THE DEVIL ROAMS ABOUT LIKE A ROARING
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:44.140
  • LION SEEKING SOMEONE TO DEVOUR."
  • 00:21:44.150 --> 00:21:49.040
  • MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:21:49.050 --> 00:21:50.090
  • SATAN IS AFTER YOU.
  • 00:21:50.100 --> 00:21:51.270
  • HE HAS A BLUEPRINT FOR YOUR DESTRUCTION THAT INCLUDES THE
  • 00:21:51.280 --> 00:21:55.270
  • DEFILEMENT OF YOUR CONSCIENCE,
  • 00:21:55.280 --> 00:21:59.030
  • DIVIDING YOUR FAMILY, DESTROYING YOUR RELATIONSHIP

  • AND HE WILL NOT GIVE UP UNTIL HE HAS SUCCEEDED.
  • 00:22:04.030 --> 00:22:08.230
  • DANIEL 10 IS A REMINDER OF THAT INVISIBLE BUT VERY REAL
  • 00:22:08.240 --> 00:22:12.220

  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:24.040
  • PAUL WROTE, "FINALLY, BE STRONG IN THE LORD IN THE
  • 00:22:24.050 --> 00:22:27.040

  • AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST THE RULERS,
  • 00:22:56.000 --> 00:22:59.060
