  • Bylinda: IN THIS SERIES, FREE INDEED, YOU WILL HEAR ABOUT
  • 00:00:06.180 --> 00:00:09.000
  • THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF DOORS WE LEAVE OPEN TO THE ENEMY,
  • 00:00:09.010 --> 00:00:11.190
  • HOW WE CAN CLOSE THEM, AND WHAT IT MEANS
  • 00:00:11.200 --> 00:00:13.200
  • TO BE TRULY FREE.
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:15.120
  • COMING UP, MY PASTOR, ROBERT MORRIS REMINDS US
  • 00:00:15.130 --> 00:00:17.280
  • TO TRUST NOT IN OURSELVES BUT IN THE LORD WHOSE STRENGTH,
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:21.200
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND WISDOM PROTECT US
  • 00:00:21.210 --> 00:00:23.160
  • FROM THE PERILOUS TRAP OF PRIDE.
  • 00:00:23.170 --> 00:00:25.180
  • 00:00:26.190 --> 00:00:36.180
  • 00:00:36.190 --> 00:00:46.180
  • 00:00:46.190 --> 00:00:56.180
  • 00:00:56.190 --> 00:01:00.160
  • WHEN THE ARROWS FLY
  • 00:01:00.170 --> 00:01:04.200
  • I WILL STAND BEHIND THE TRUTH THAT YOU ARE GOOD
  • 00:01:04.210 --> 00:01:14.200
  • YOU TELL MY HEART BE STILL
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:18.260
  • AND SO GOD I WILL 'CAUSE I KNOW
  • 00:01:18.270 --> 00:01:23.140
  • OH I KNOW THAT YOU'RE GOOD, YES
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:27.160
  • 00:01:28.270 --> 00:01:36.120
  • Pastor Robert: TODAY'S MESSAGE
  • 00:01:37.020 --> 00:01:40.020
  • IS "PERMISSION GRANTED"
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:43.250
  • -- "PERMISSION GRANTED."
  • 00:01:43.250 --> 00:01:44.260
  • I WANT YOU TO TURN TO
  • 00:01:44.260 --> 00:01:45.160
  • TWO SCRIPTURES, OBVIOUSLY,
  • 00:01:45.160 --> 00:01:47.040
  • LUKE 22, WE'LL START THERE,
  • 00:01:47.040 --> 00:01:48.230
  • LUKE 22, AND THEN PUT
  • 00:01:48.230 --> 00:01:50.230
  • A MARKER AT JOB CHAPTER ONE
  • 00:01:52.010 --> 00:01:55.010
  • -- JOB CHAPTER ONE.
  • 00:01:55.010 --> 00:01:56.060
  • WE WILL ACTUALLY...
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:57.070
  • THESE ARE THE FIRST
  • 00:01:57.070 --> 00:01:58.080
  • TWO POINTS.
  • 00:01:58.080 --> 00:01:59.160
  • WE'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:00.230
  • THESE SCRIPTURES AND
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:01.270
  • I'M GOING TO ACTUALLY ASK YOU
  • 00:02:01.270 --> 00:02:02.280
  • TO TURN TO
  • 00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:04.000
  • THE THIRD SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:02:04.000 --> 00:02:05.040
  • TO THE THIRD POINT,
  • 00:02:05.040 --> 00:02:06.080
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:02:06.080 --> 00:02:07.100
  • A LOT OF SCRIPTURE
  • 00:02:07.100 --> 00:02:08.120
  • IN THIS MESSAGE.
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:09.170
  • I BELIEVE THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:02:09.170 --> 00:02:10.210
  • IS GOING TO SO TEACH US
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:11.230
  • WHAT WE NEED TO HEAR.
  • 00:02:11.230 --> 00:02:12.250
  • SO THE TITLE OF
  • 00:02:12.250 --> 00:02:13.270
  • THE MESSAGE AGAIN IS
  • 00:02:13.270 --> 00:02:15.060
  • "PERMISSION GRANTED."
  • 00:02:15.060 --> 00:02:16.220
  • DO WE EVER AS BELIEVERS
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:19.150
  • GRANT SATAN PERMISSION
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:23.090
  • TO COME AGAINST US OR TO
  • 00:02:23.090 --> 00:02:24.210
  • TAKE US BONDAGE IN AN AREA?
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:27.120
  • BUT WE'RE ALSO GOING
  • 00:02:27.120 --> 00:02:28.260
  • TO ANSWER THE QUESTION
  • 00:02:28.260 --> 00:02:30.060
  • IN THIS MESSAGE,
  • 00:02:30.060 --> 00:02:31.270
  • DOES GOD EVER GRANT SATAN
  • 00:02:31.270 --> 00:02:34.170
  • PERMISSION TO TAKE US
  • 00:02:34.170 --> 00:02:36.240
  • IN BONDAGE IN AN AREA?
  • 00:02:36.240 --> 00:02:39.060
  • I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT
  • 00:02:39.060 --> 00:02:40.140
  • FOR A MOMENT, THE WHOLE
  • 00:02:40.140 --> 00:02:41.270
  • OLD TESTAMENT;
  • 00:02:41.270 --> 00:02:44.050
  • OF GOD'S PEOPLE SINNING
  • 00:02:44.090 --> 00:02:47.090
  • AND GOD GRANTING THE ENEMY
  • 00:02:47.090 --> 00:02:49.180
  • PERMISSION TO TAKE HIS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:49.180 --> 00:02:51.280
  • INTO BONDAGE AND HIS PEOPLE
  • 00:02:51.280 --> 00:02:53.260
  • THEN CRYING OUT TO HIM
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:55.240
  • AND HIM RELEASING THEM
  • 00:02:55.240 --> 00:02:57.100
  • FROM THAT BONDAGE BUT
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:02:58.190
  • TEACHING THEM THROUGH IT.
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:01.010
  • SO I SEE SOME RAISED EYEBROWS
  • 00:03:01.010 --> 00:03:02.280
  • AS YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT THAT,
  • 00:03:02.280 --> 00:03:04.170
  • HMM, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:03:04.170 --> 00:03:06.020
  • WELL, WE'LL LOOK AT THE WORD
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:07.070
  • AND SEE WHAT IT MEANS.
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:08.190
  • WE'VE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:03:08.190 --> 00:03:09.240
  • THAT SATAN IS A THIEF
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:11.190
  • AND JESUS SAID HE IS ALWAYS
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:12.290
  • LOOKING TO COME IN
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:14.030
  • SOME OTHER WAY.
  • 00:03:14.030 --> 00:03:15.130
  • JOEL SAID HE COMES IN
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:16.290
  • THROUGH WINDOWS OR
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:18.120
  • HE COMES IN THROUGH
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:19.160
  • AN OPEN DOOR.
  • 00:03:19.160 --> 00:03:21.050
  • I WANT TO TELL YOU,
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:22.120
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO DEAL
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:23.160
  • WITH THIS ONE OPEN DOOR
  • 00:03:23.160 --> 00:03:24.230
  • BUT THREE DEFINITIONS OF IT
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:26.130
  • IN THIS MESSAGE, BUT
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:28.030
  • THE NUMBER ONE OPEN DOOR
  • 00:03:28.030 --> 00:03:29.110
  • THAT I'VE SEEN BELIEVERS,
  • 00:03:29.110 --> 00:03:31.020
  • EVEN MATURE BELIEVERS OPEN
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:33.020
  • A DOOR TO SATAN IN THIS AREA
  • 00:03:33.020 --> 00:03:35.190
  • IS THE AREA OF PRIDE.
  • 00:03:35.190 --> 00:03:38.040
  • NOW IT IS AMAZING TO ME
  • 00:03:38.160 --> 00:03:41.160
  • THAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT PRIDE
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:45.050
  • THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE PROUD
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:47.120
  • THAT THEY DON'T HAVE PRIDE.
  • 00:03:47.120 --> 00:03:49.100
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:03:49.220 --> 00:03:52.220
  • SO BEFORE YOU DISMISS THIS
  • 00:03:52.240 --> 00:03:55.240
  • SUBJECT, LET ME GIVE YOU...
  • 00:03:55.240 --> 00:03:58.060
  • I'M EXCITED BECAUSE I FEEL
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:03:59.240
  • LIKE THE LORD GAVE ME SOME
  • 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:01.020
  • DEFINITIONS OF PRIDE THAT
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:03.060
  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT
  • 00:04:03.060 --> 00:04:04.110
  • YOU THINK, OH, I MIGHT
  • 00:04:04.110 --> 00:04:05.270
  • HAVE DONE THAT.
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:07.180
  • NOW LOOK AT LUKE CHAPTER 22
  • 00:04:19.090 --> 00:04:22.030
  • NOW THIS IS AN AMAZING
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:58.130
  • PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:04:58.130 --> 00:05:00.130
  • NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.120
  • JESUS SAYING TO A BELIEVER,
  • 00:05:02.120 --> 00:05:04.070
  • "SATAN HAS ASKED PERMISSION
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:06.220
  • TO SIFT YOU LIKE WHEAT.
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:08.280
  • BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,
  • 00:05:08.280 --> 00:05:10.140
  • I PRAYED FOR YOU.
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:12.040
  • WHEN YOU COME BACK,
  • 00:05:12.040 --> 00:05:14.170
  • STRENGTHEN YOUR BROTHERS."
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:16.040
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:05:16.040 --> 00:05:17.050
  • YOU'RE GOING TO FALL.
  • 00:05:17.050 --> 00:05:18.080
  • IT'S PRETTY STRONG.
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:19.220
  • NOW WHAT'S AMAZING ABOUT
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:20.260
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT IS
  • 00:05:20.260 --> 00:05:22.030
  • WE KNOW IT WAS WRITTEN
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:23.080
  • IN GREEK AND GREEK MANY TIMES
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:24.200
  • WILL HAVE THREE OR FOUR WORDS
  • 00:05:24.200 --> 00:05:27.060
  • FOR A WORD WE ONLY HAVE
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.160
  • ONE WORD IN ENGLISH,
  • 00:05:28.160 --> 00:05:29.220
  • LIKE THE WORD ASKED .
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:31.190
  • THIS IS NOT THE NORMAL WORD,
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:33.230
  • GREEK WORD FOR ASKED .
  • 00:05:33.230 --> 00:05:35.080
  • THIS WORD HAS A STRONG
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:37.090
  • IMPLICATION THAT WE NEED
  • 00:05:37.090 --> 00:05:38.130
  • TO UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:05:38.130 --> 00:05:39.170
  • I'M ACTUALLY GOING TO SHOW YOU
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:40.270
  • THE GREEK LEXICON DEFINITION
  • 00:05:40.270 --> 00:05:43.110
  • OF THIS WORD ASKED .
  • 00:05:43.110 --> 00:05:45.110
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THIS CAN
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:05:59.180
  • BE TRANSLATED SATAN ASKED
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:01.220
  • AND RECEIVED PERMISSION
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:04.150
  • TO SIFT YOU LIKE WHEAT.
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:05.270
  • THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD
  • 00:06:05.270 --> 00:06:07.020
  • SAYS IT THIS WAY, SATAN
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:08.090
  • HAS DEMANDED PERMISSION.
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:09.170
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:06:09.170 --> 00:06:10.270
  • HE HAS A RIGHT.
  • 00:06:10.270 --> 00:06:12.060
  • HE HAS A RIGHT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:13.100
  • THERE IS AN OPEN DOOR
  • 00:06:13.100 --> 00:06:14.160
  • IN YOUR LIFE, SIMON.
  • 00:06:14.160 --> 00:06:15.220
  • AND WHAT WOULD THAT
  • 00:06:15.220 --> 00:06:17.030
  • OPEN DOOR BE?
  • 00:06:17.030 --> 00:06:18.140
  • I PERSONALLY THINK THAT
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:19.150
  • IT WAS THAT HE TRUSTED
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:20.180
  • IN HIS OWN STRENGTH.
  • 00:06:20.180 --> 00:06:21.210
  • I PERSONALLY THINK
  • 00:06:21.210 --> 00:06:22.240
  • HE HAD PRIDE.
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:23.260
  • AND THE REASON I THINK THAT
  • 00:06:23.260 --> 00:06:25.000
  • IS BECAUSE OF THE CONVERSATION
  • 00:06:25.000 --> 00:06:26.000
  • THAT TAKES PLACE
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:27.020
  • RIGHT BEFORE THIS.
  • 00:06:27.020 --> 00:06:28.050
  • NOW LUKE ACTUALLY DOESN'T
  • 00:06:28.050 --> 00:06:29.070
  • RECORD WHAT WAS SAID RIGHT
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.120
  • BEFORE THIS BUT MATTHEW,
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:31.190
  • MARK, AND JOHN RECORD IT.
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:34.000
  • LET ME READ IT TO YOU
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:36.010
  • AND SEE IF YOU SEE ANY PRIDE
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:37.240
  • IN PETER.
  • 00:06:37.240 --> 00:06:39.250
  • NOW HE IS GOING TO QUOTE
  • 00:06:53.120 --> 00:06:54.110
  • SCRIPTURE TO SAY,
  • 00:06:54.110 --> 00:06:55.180
  • IT'S ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:56.250
  • NOW I THINK JESUS WAS
  • 00:07:31.070 --> 00:07:33.040
  • TRYING TO SAY TO PETER,
  • 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:35.170
  • "WHAT PART OF ALL
  • 00:07:35.170 --> 00:07:37.020
  • DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?"
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:39.020
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:40.240
  • "ALL OF YOU WILL DENY ME."
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:44.170
  • "NOT ME!
  • 00:07:44.170 --> 00:07:46.020
  • THESE WEAKLINGS MIGHT,
  • 00:07:46.020 --> 00:07:47.130
  • LORD, BUT NOT ME!"
  • 00:07:47.130 --> 00:07:49.200
  • SO JESUS SAID, "OKAY, LET ME
  • 00:07:49.200 --> 00:07:50.260
  • JUST TELL YOU, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:52.050
  • TO DO IT TONIGHT THREE TIMES."
  • 00:07:52.050 --> 00:07:54.000
  • HE SAID, "NOPE! NOT ME!"
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:55.250
  • JESUS IS TELLING HIM!
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:07:57.130
  • AND THEN JESUS SAYS,
  • 00:07:57.130 --> 00:07:58.160
  • "WELL, LISTEN, THERE'S
  • 00:07:58.160 --> 00:07:59.220
  • A SCRIPTURE IN THE
  • 00:07:59.220 --> 00:08:01.050
  • OLD TESTAMENT THAT SAYS
  • 00:08:01.050 --> 00:08:02.190
  • THAT YOU WILL."
  • 00:08:02.190 --> 00:08:04.170
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:06.230
  • AND PETER SAID, "NO,
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:08.040
  • THE BIBLE IS WRONG."
  • 00:08:08.040 --> 00:08:09.240
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:09.240 --> 00:08:11.020
  • THAT'S PRIDE!
  • 00:08:11.020 --> 00:08:12.210
  • LET ME SHOW YOU A LITTLE MORE
  • 00:08:12.210 --> 00:08:13.240
  • NOW IF THAT DOESN'T HELP
  • 00:09:02.120 --> 00:09:03.240
  • OPEN OUR EYES TO SOMETHING,
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:05.240
  • JESUS LOOKED RIGHT AT A MAN
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:07.180
  • AND SAID TO A MAN,
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:09.270
  • GET BEHIND ME SATAN.
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:11.010
  • HE ADDRESSED SATAN IN THE MAN.
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:16.180
  • HE ADDRESSED HIM.
  • 00:09:16.180 --> 00:09:18.100
  • WHATEVER YOU WANT
  • 00:09:18.100 --> 00:09:19.220
  • YOUR THEOLOGY TO BE, WHETHER
  • 00:09:19.220 --> 00:09:21.000
  • IT WAS ON HIM, IN HIM,
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:22.050
  • AROUND HIM, BEHIND HIM,
  • 00:09:22.050 --> 00:09:23.140
  • WHATEVER, BUT JESUS,
  • 00:09:23.270 --> 00:09:26.270
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:28.020
  • WITH THIS SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:29.040
  • JESUS SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:09:29.040 --> 00:09:30.080
  • "GET BEHIND ME, SATAN."
  • 00:09:30.080 --> 00:09:31.150
  • NOW YOU'VE GOT TO REMEMBER,
  • 00:09:31.150 --> 00:09:32.200
  • THIS IS RIGHT BEFORE...
  • 00:09:32.200 --> 00:09:33.250
  • WHAT HAPPENED RIGHT BEFORE
  • 00:09:33.250 --> 00:09:34.280
  • THIS WAS JESUS CHANGED
  • 00:09:34.280 --> 00:09:36.140
  • PETER'S NAME FROM SIMON
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:37.270
  • TO PETER.
  • 00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:39.200
  • NOW HE CALLS HIM SATAN.
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:40.280
  • OF COURSE, PETER
  • 00:09:40.280 --> 00:09:41.270
  • IS PROBABLY THINKING,
  • 00:09:41.270 --> 00:09:42.290
  • I LIKED PETER BETTER!
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.080
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:09:44.080 --> 00:09:46.060
  • BUT IT IS ARROGANCE,
  • 00:09:46.060 --> 00:09:47.170
  • IT IS PRIDE, AND IT IS
  • 00:09:47.170 --> 00:09:49.010
  • TRUSTING HIS OWN STRENGTH.
  • 00:09:49.010 --> 00:09:50.080
  • DO YOU REALIZE WHEN THEY CAME
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:51.130
  • TO ARREST HIM ONE OF
  • 00:09:51.130 --> 00:09:53.200
  • THE DISCIPLES CUT OFF
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:57.080
  • A SOLDIER'S EAR.
  • 00:09:57.080 --> 00:09:59.230
  • CAN YOU TAKE A GUESS
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:00.290
  • WHO IT WAS?
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:02.030
  • PETER! PETER!
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:03.180
  • DO YOU KNOW WHY
  • 00:10:03.180 --> 00:10:04.220
  • HE CUT HIS EAR OFF?
  • 00:10:04.220 --> 00:10:05.290
  • BECAUSE HE MISSED HIS HEAD.
  • 00:10:05.290 --> 00:10:07.070
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:07.070 --> 00:10:09.210
  • HE WAS TRYING TO SPLIT
  • 00:10:09.210 --> 00:10:11.010
  • HIS HEAD WIDE OPEN
  • 00:10:11.010 --> 00:10:12.100
  • WITH A GARRISON OF SOLDIERS --
  • 00:10:12.100 --> 00:10:14.280
  • WE REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW MANY,
  • 00:10:14.280 --> 00:10:16.130
  • A CENTURION WHICH OVERSAW
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:19.190
  • THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS.
  • 00:10:19.190 --> 00:10:21.010
  • A CENTURION, (CENT)
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:22.160
  • WOULD OVERSEE 100 SOLDIERS.
  • 00:10:22.160 --> 00:10:24.030
  • THERE COULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:10:24.030 --> 00:10:25.100
  • 100 SOLDIERS THERE AND
  • 00:10:25.100 --> 00:10:27.090
  • PETER IS GOING TO TAKE THEM
  • 00:10:27.090 --> 00:10:29.000
  • ALL ON WITH ONE SWORD.
  • 00:10:29.000 --> 00:10:31.110
  • THAT'S TRUSTING
  • 00:10:31.110 --> 00:10:32.210
  • IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH.
  • 00:10:32.210 --> 00:10:34.180
  • BUT BECAUSE OF THIS,
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:35.290
  • JESUS SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:37.050
  • LISTEN, "SATAN HAS A RIGHT.
  • 00:10:37.050 --> 00:10:39.070
  • HE'S COMING, BECAUSE YOU'VE
  • 00:10:39.070 --> 00:10:41.090
  • OPENED UP A DOOR TO HIM."
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:43.120
  • THEN PETER DOES SOMETHING
  • 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:44.230
  • LIKE WE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:10:44.230 --> 00:10:45.260
  • IN THE FIRST MESSAGE,
  • 00:10:45.260 --> 00:10:47.000
  • "UNDER THE INFLUENCE,"
  • 00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:48.120
  • TOTALLY OUT OF CHARACTER
  • 00:10:48.120 --> 00:10:49.290
  • FOR HIMSELF.
  • 00:10:49.290 --> 00:10:51.050
  • HE DENIED -- THIS STRONG
  • 00:10:51.050 --> 00:10:52.250
  • DISCIPLE THAT'S WILLING
  • 00:10:52.250 --> 00:10:54.040
  • TO TAKE ON A WHOLE GARRISON
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:55.180
  • OF SOLDIERS TURNS AROUND
  • 00:10:55.180 --> 00:10:57.110
  • AND DENIES JESUS TO
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:59.010
  • THE TEENAGE WAITRESS.
  • 00:11:00.090 --> 00:11:03.090
  • AND HE EVEN CURSES AND SWEARS.
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:06.110
  • HE STARTS USING CURSE WORDS
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:08.130
  • SAYING, I DON'T KNOW HIM.
  • 00:11:08.130 --> 00:11:10.080
  • I DON'T KNOW THE MAN.
  • 00:11:10.080 --> 00:11:11.180
  • PLEASE HEAR ME ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:11:11.180 --> 00:11:14.020
  • WHAT I'M GOING TO SHARE
  • 00:11:14.020 --> 00:11:15.150
  • WITH YOU TODAY,
  • 00:11:15.150 --> 00:11:17.060
  • MANY MATURE BELIEVERS
  • 00:11:17.060 --> 00:11:20.050
  • FALL INTO THIS TRAP.
  • 00:11:20.050 --> 00:11:22.290
  • THEY'VE WALKED WITH THE LORD
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:24.070
  • A LONG TIME AND THEY BEGIN
  • 00:11:24.070 --> 00:11:25.170
  • TO TRUST IN THEIR OWN STRENGTH
  • 00:11:25.170 --> 00:11:27.280
  • TO RESIST TEMPTATION.
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:29.200
  • IS IT POSSIBLE THIS IS WHY
  • 00:11:29.200 --> 00:11:31.150
  • KING DAVID FELL?
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:33.240
  • BECAUSE HE WAS A VERY,
  • 00:11:33.240 --> 00:11:34.250
  • VERY STRONG MAN.
  • 00:11:34.250 --> 00:11:37.150
  • SO NUMBER ONE: PRIDE IS
  • 00:11:38.040 --> 00:11:41.040
  • NOW FLIP BACK TO JOB
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.230
  • CHAPTER ONE OR CLICK
  • 00:11:58.230 --> 00:12:01.030
  • TO JOB CHAPTER ONE,
  • 00:12:01.030 --> 00:12:02.140
  • HOWEVER YOU READ YOUR BIBLE.
  • 00:12:02.140 --> 00:12:03.230
  • JUST READ IT.
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:05.070
  • JOB CHAPTER ONE.
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:08.230
  • MOST OF US KNOW THE STORY
  • 00:12:08.230 --> 00:12:09.270
  • OF JOB.
  • 00:12:09.270 --> 00:12:11.000
  • I HAD A FRIEND OF MINE
  • 00:12:11.000 --> 00:12:12.050
  • THAT RIGHT AFTER HE GOT SAVED
  • 00:12:12.050 --> 00:12:13.190
  • HE READ THE BOOK OF JOB
  • 00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:14.250
  • BECAUSE HE NEEDED ONE.
  • 00:12:14.250 --> 00:12:17.110
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:17.110 --> 00:12:19.110
  • AND HE SAID TO ME, "THAT BOOK
  • 00:12:19.110 --> 00:12:21.100
  • DIDN'T HELP ME MUCH."
  • 00:12:21.100 --> 00:12:23.270
  • I TOLD HIM, I SAID,
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:25.020
  • "NO, READ JOHN -- READ JOHN.
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:26.090
  • DON'T READ JOB, READ JOHN."
  • 00:12:26.160 --> 00:12:29.160
  • PRIDE IS TRUSTING IN
  • 00:12:29.160 --> 00:12:30.250
  • THAT'S A VERY DIFFICULT
  • 00:13:38.270 --> 00:13:40.030
  • PASSAGE TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:13:40.030 --> 00:13:42.030
  • BUT IT'S REALLY NOT THAT
  • 00:13:42.030 --> 00:13:43.050
  • DIFFICULT WHEN YOU READ
  • 00:13:43.050 --> 00:13:44.070
  • THE REST OF BOOK.
  • 00:13:44.070 --> 00:13:45.250
  • FOR 32 CHAPTERS, 31,
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:48.170
  • JOB, HE HAS THREE FRIENDS
  • 00:13:48.170 --> 00:13:51.000
  • WHO SHOW UP TO TRY
  • 00:13:51.000 --> 00:13:52.030
  • AND COMFORT HIM.
  • 00:13:52.030 --> 00:13:53.080
  • YOU DON'T WANT THESE FRIENDS,
  • 00:13:53.080 --> 00:13:54.170
  • BY THE WAY.
  • 00:13:54.170 --> 00:13:56.200
  • BUT IN ESSENCE, THEY DO SPEAK
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:57.240
  • A LOT OF TRUTH.
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:13:59.130
  • THEY SAY TO HIM OVER AND OVER
  • 00:13:59.130 --> 00:14:00.240
  • AND OVER AGAIN, "JOB,
  • 00:14:00.240 --> 00:14:02.110
  • ARE YOU SURE THERE IS NOT
  • 00:14:02.110 --> 00:14:03.160
  • AN OPEN DOOR IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:14:03.160 --> 00:14:04.160
  • ARE YOU SURE THERE'S
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:05.250
  • NO CAUSE THAT THE ENEMY
  • 00:14:05.250 --> 00:14:07.220
  • WAS ABLE TO USE AGAINST YOU?"
  • 00:14:07.220 --> 00:14:10.160
  • AND JOB SAYS, "NOPE.
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:11.170
  • NOPE. NOPE.
  • 00:14:11.170 --> 00:14:12.290
  • I HAVE NOT DONE THESE THINGS
  • 00:14:12.290 --> 00:14:14.150
  • AND I HAVE DONE THESE THINGS."
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:15.250
  • AND HE LISTS THE THINGS
  • 00:14:15.250 --> 00:14:17.030
  • THAT HE HASN'T DONE
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:18.060
  • AND HE LISTS THE THINGS
  • 00:14:18.060 --> 00:14:19.110
  • THAT HE HAS DONE.
  • 00:14:19.110 --> 00:14:20.140
  • HE SAYS, "NO, NO, NO."
  • 00:14:20.140 --> 00:14:21.190
  • IN CHAPTER 32 THERE IS
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:22.220
  • A YOUNG MAN NAMED ELIHU
  • 00:14:22.220 --> 00:14:23.290
  • THAT'S BEEN SITTING THERE
  • 00:14:23.290 --> 00:14:25.110
  • THE WHOLE TIME LISTENING.
  • 00:14:25.110 --> 00:14:26.230
  • AND I DON'T HAVE TIME TO READ
  • 00:14:26.230 --> 00:14:27.290
  • ALL OF IT BUT IN ESSENCE
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:29.010
  • THIS IS WHAT HE SAYS.
  • 00:14:29.010 --> 00:14:30.040
  • HE SAYS, "I'VE HELD IT
  • 00:14:30.040 --> 00:14:31.100
  • ALL I CAN HOLD IT."
  • 00:14:31.100 --> 00:14:32.190
  • HE SAID, "I DIDN'T SAY
  • 00:14:32.190 --> 00:14:33.230
  • ANYTHING BECAUSE ALL YOU GUYS
  • 00:14:33.230 --> 00:14:35.060
  • ARE OLD DUDES AND
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:36.120
  • I FIGURED EVENTUALLY,
  • 00:14:36.120 --> 00:14:37.160
  • YOU'D GET THE RIGHT ANSWER.
  • 00:14:37.160 --> 00:14:39.070
  • BUT NONE OF YOU HAVE
  • 00:14:39.070 --> 00:14:40.080
  • FIGURED IT OUT SO
  • 00:14:40.080 --> 00:14:41.110
  • I'M GOING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:14:41.110 --> 00:14:42.150
  • WHAT THE PROBLEM IS HERE."
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:43.190
  • AND WE'LL PICK IT UP AT THAT.
  • 00:14:43.190 --> 00:14:44.240
  • HE WOULD HAVE BEEN JESUS
  • 00:15:45.040 --> 00:15:46.070
  • FOR THAT TO BE TRUE.
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:48.110
  • AND THEN HE CONCLUDES THIS.
  • 00:15:48.110 --> 00:15:50.090
  • IN PART OF HIS CONCLUSION
  • 00:15:50.090 --> 00:15:51.180
  • HE SAYS IN JOB 36, VERSE 3:
  • 00:15:51.180 --> 00:15:53.190
  • "I..." THIS IS ELIHU,
  • 00:15:53.190 --> 00:15:55.020
  • HERE'S THE SIN.
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:03.210
  • HERE WAS THE OPEN DOOR
  • 00:16:03.210 --> 00:16:04.290
  • IN JOB'S LIFE.
  • 00:16:04.290 --> 00:16:06.030
  • HE WAS RIGHTEOUS BECAUSE
  • 00:16:06.030 --> 00:16:07.080
  • OF WHAT HE DID, NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:16:07.080 --> 00:16:08.200
  • OF WHO HE KNEW.
  • 00:16:08.200 --> 00:16:11.090
  • HIS WHOLE DISCOURSE IS ABOUT
  • 00:16:11.090 --> 00:16:12.240
  • WHAT HE DID: I'VE DONE THIS,
  • 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:14.010
  • I'VE DONE THIS,
  • 00:16:14.010 --> 00:16:15.060
  • AND I'VE DONE THIS.
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:16.050
  • AND I HAVEN'T DONE THIS
  • 00:16:16.050 --> 00:16:17.080
  • AND I HAVEN'T DONE THIS
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:18.090
  • AND I HAVEN'T DONE THIS.
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:19.140
  • HEAR ME AGAIN,
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:20.220
  • MATURE BELIEVERS FALL PREY
  • 00:16:20.220 --> 00:16:21.290
  • TO PRIDE IN THIS AREA,
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:24.060
  • BECAUSE WHEN WE GET SAVED,
  • 00:16:24.060 --> 00:16:25.210
  • I WANT YOU TO THINK
  • 00:16:25.210 --> 00:16:26.220
  • ABOUT THIS, WHEN WE GET SAVED
  • 00:16:26.220 --> 00:16:27.290
  • WE KNOW THAT OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:29.080
  • COMES FROM GOD BECAUSE
  • 00:16:29.080 --> 00:16:31.160
  • WE WEREN'T RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:33.080
  • AND GOD CAME BY HIS GRACE
  • 00:16:33.080 --> 00:16:34.140
  • AND SAVED US.
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:35.180
  • BUT 10 YEARS LATER,
  • 00:16:35.180 --> 00:16:36.280
  • 20 YEARS LATER, 30 YEARS
  • 00:16:36.280 --> 00:16:38.160
  • LATER, NOW WE LEAD A GROUP,
  • 00:16:38.160 --> 00:16:39.230
  • NOW WE'RE A LEADER
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:40.260
  • IN THE CHURCH,
  • 00:16:40.260 --> 00:16:41.270
  • NOW WE DON'T DO ALL
  • 00:16:41.270 --> 00:16:43.010
  • THOSE THINGS AND WE DO
  • 00:16:43.010 --> 00:16:44.040
  • THESE THINGS AND WE JUST BEGIN
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:45.080
  • TO FEEL LIKE WE'RE RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:16:45.080 --> 00:16:46.160
  • BECAUSE OF WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:16:46.160 --> 00:16:47.260
  • WE ARE NOT RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:16:47.260 --> 00:16:48.250
  • BECAUSE OF WHAT WE DO,
  • 00:16:48.250 --> 00:16:49.290
  • WE ARE RIGHTEOUS BY
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:51.010
  • THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:16:51.010 --> 00:16:52.050
  • HIS SON ALONE -- IT'S THE ONLY
  • 00:16:52.050 --> 00:16:53.180
  • REASON WE'RE RIGHTEOUS!
  • 00:16:54.020 --> 00:16:57.020
  • AND WHEN YOU BEGIN TO BELIEVE
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:16:59.030
  • AND TRUST IN YOUR
  • 00:16:59.030 --> 00:17:00.170
  • OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:17:00.170 --> 00:17:02.140
  • THAT'S PRIDE.
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:03.270
  • HERE'S WHAT JESUS SAID.
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:05.100
  • JESUS SAID, "WELL, IT IS
  • 00:17:05.100 --> 00:17:06.090
  • KIND OF LIKE THE PHARISEE.
  • 00:17:06.090 --> 00:17:07.260
  • AND HE WAS IN CHURCH PRAYING
  • 00:17:07.260 --> 00:17:09.020
  • AND A SINNER CAME IN
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:10.170
  • AND THIS WAS HIS PRAYER:
  • 00:17:10.170 --> 00:17:12.050
  • 'GOD, THANK YOU THAT
  • 00:17:12.050 --> 00:17:13.090
  • I'M NOT LIKE OTHERS.
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:16.110
  • THANK YOU, LORD!' "
  • 00:17:16.110 --> 00:17:17.270
  • HE COMPARED HIMSELF.
  • 00:17:17.270 --> 00:17:19.020
  • THAT'S WHAT JOB DOES
  • 00:17:19.020 --> 00:17:20.060
  • FOR 31 CHAPTERS!
  • 00:17:20.060 --> 00:17:21.130
  • HE SAYS, "COMPARE ME
  • 00:17:21.130 --> 00:17:22.160
  • TO ANYBODY.
  • 00:17:22.160 --> 00:17:23.200
  • COMPARE ME TO ANYBODY
  • 00:17:23.200 --> 00:17:24.230
  • AND YOU'LL SEE, I'M RIGHTEOUS
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:26.140
  • -- I'M RIGHTEOUS!"
  • 00:17:26.140 --> 00:17:27.160
  • HERE'S THE ONLY PROBLEM
  • 00:17:27.160 --> 00:17:28.180
  • WITH THAT IS THAT
  • 00:17:28.180 --> 00:17:29.220
  • GOD SHOWED UP.
  • 00:17:30.090 --> 00:17:33.090
  • AND GOD SAID, "OKAY,
  • 00:17:33.090 --> 00:17:34.110
  • YOU WANT TO DO
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.140
  • SOME COMPARISONS?
  • 00:17:35.140 --> 00:17:37.110
  • YOU WANT TO COMPARE
  • 00:17:37.110 --> 00:17:38.170
  • YOURSELF?
  • 00:17:38.170 --> 00:17:39.220
  • HOW ABOUT IF YOU COMPARE
  • 00:17:39.220 --> 00:17:40.250
  • YOURSELF TO ME?"
  • 00:17:40.250 --> 00:17:43.000
  • WATCH WHAT GOD --
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:44.070
  • JUST A FEW THINGS THAT
  • 00:17:44.070 --> 00:17:45.120
  • GOD SAID TO JOB.
  • 00:17:45.120 --> 00:17:46.180
  • SEE IF YOU WOULD HAVE WANTED
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:47.190
  • TO BE IN JOB'S SHOES
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:48.240
  • PUT THAT IN A SIMPLER VERSION
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:02.200
  • FOR YOU, JUST PARAPHRASE IT.
  • 00:18:02.200 --> 00:18:03.270
  • GOD SAID, "WHAT IDIOT
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:05.050
  • IS TALKING RIGHT NOW?"
  • 00:18:05.050 --> 00:18:06.270
  • ONE VERSION SAYS, "HAVE YOU
  • 00:18:45.130 --> 00:18:46.210
  • EVER TOLD THE SUN
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:47.280
  • "YOU KNOW WHERE I KEEP
  • 00:18:53.180 --> 00:18:54.250
  • THE SNOW?
  • 00:18:54.250 --> 00:18:55.290
  • HAVE YOU SEEN
  • 00:18:55.290 --> 00:18:56.290
  • THE TREASURY OF HELL?"
  • 00:18:56.290 --> 00:18:58.040
  • VERSE 24: HERE'S A GOOD
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:18:59.060
  • "CAN YOU TELL IT WHEN TO RAIN
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:12.130
  • BECAUSE I CAN!"
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:14.000
  • "CAN YOU SEND OUT
  • 00:19:14.000 --> 00:19:15.020
  • LIGHTNING THAT THEY MAY GO AND
  • 00:19:15.020 --> 00:19:16.070
  • SAY TO YOU, 'HERE WE ARE.'"
  • 00:19:16.070 --> 00:19:17.140
  • ONE VERSION SAYS,
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:18.150
  • "DOES LIGHTNING COME TO
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:19.200
  • YOUR THRONE AND ASK
  • 00:19:19.200 --> 00:19:20.240
  • WHERE TO STRIKE?"
  • 00:19:20.240 --> 00:19:22.200
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE GOD
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:40.130
  • ASKING THAT?
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:42.020
  • "WOULD YOU CONDEMN ME
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.260
  • THAT YOU MAY BE JUSTIFIED?"
  • 00:19:43.260 --> 00:19:45.050
  • OF COURSE JOB REPENTS.
  • 00:19:47.080 --> 00:19:50.080
  • PLEASE HEAR ME.
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:52.050
  • I'VE SEEN A LOT OF MATURE
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:53.160
  • BELIEVERS BEGIN TO TRUST
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:56.000
  • IN THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 00:19:56.000 --> 00:19:57.250
  • AND HERE'S THE POINT,
  • 00:19:57.250 --> 00:19:59.040
  • A LOT OF THEM REALLY ARE
  • 00:19:59.040 --> 00:20:00.080
  • RIGHTEOUS AS FAR AS
  • 00:20:00.080 --> 00:20:01.090
  • THEIR LIVING, AND I BELIEVE
  • 00:20:01.090 --> 00:20:02.090
  • IN RIGHTEOUS LIVING.
  • 00:20:02.090 --> 00:20:03.100
  • PLEASE HEAR ME!
  • 00:20:03.100 --> 00:20:04.150
  • BECAUSE UNRIGHTEOUS LIVING
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:05.170
  • OPENS THE DOOR TO THE DEMONIC.
  • 00:20:05.170 --> 00:20:07.020
  • SO I BELIEVE IN LIVING
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:08.020
  • RIGHTEOUSLY, BUT
  • 00:20:08.020 --> 00:20:09.080
  • LIVING RIGHTEOUSLY DOESN'T
  • 00:20:09.080 --> 00:20:10.120
  • MAKE US RIGHTEOUS --
  • 00:20:10.120 --> 00:20:12.090
  • ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS DOES.
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:14.200
  • I WAS TALKING TO A MAN
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:15.230
  • ONE TIME SO STEEPED IN PRIDE
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:17.060
  • AND TRYING AND TRYING
  • 00:20:17.060 --> 00:20:18.080
  • AND TRYING TO GET HIM
  • 00:20:18.080 --> 00:20:19.130
  • AND HE WAS TELLING ME ABOUT
  • 00:20:19.130 --> 00:20:20.200
  • ALL THIS TROUBLE HE WAS
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:21.270
  • HAVING IN HIS LIFE
  • 00:20:21.270 --> 00:20:23.030
  • AND ALL THESE THINGS
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:24.060
  • GOING WRONG.
  • 00:20:24.060 --> 00:20:25.140
  • AND THEN HE SAID TO ME,
  • 00:20:25.140 --> 00:20:26.220
  • "AND I'VE ALWAYS DONE
  • 00:20:26.220 --> 00:20:28.130
  • THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:20:28.130 --> 00:20:30.050
  • I'VE ALWAYS DONE
  • 00:20:30.050 --> 00:20:31.150
  • THE RIGHT THING."
  • 00:20:31.150 --> 00:20:33.230
  • I JUST FLINCHED WHEN
  • 00:20:33.230 --> 00:20:35.030
  • I HEARD IT.
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:36.090
  • I THOUGHT, NO, YOU HAVEN'T
  • 00:20:36.090 --> 00:20:37.180
  • ALWAYS DONE THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:20:37.180 --> 00:20:38.270
  • NOBODY HAS ALWAYS DONE
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:40.030
  • THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:20:40.030 --> 00:20:41.090
  • BUT WHAT HE WAS SAYING
  • 00:20:41.090 --> 00:20:42.150
  • WAS "I'M RIGHTEOUS BECAUSE
  • 00:20:42.150 --> 00:20:43.230
  • I'VE DONE THE RIGHT THING."
  • 00:20:43.230 --> 00:20:45.170
  • SO PRIDE IS TRUSTING
  • 00:20:45.170 --> 00:20:46.220
  • YOUR OWN STRENGTH.
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:47.290
  • PRIDE IS TRUSTING YOUR OWN
  • 00:20:47.290 --> 00:20:48.280
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:20:48.280 --> 00:20:50.050
  • YOU CAN FIGURE IT OUT.
  • 00:20:54.200 --> 00:20:57.090
  • I'D REALLY LIKE FOR YOU
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:20:58.170
  • TO TURN BACK TO THIS PASSAGE
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:20:59.250
  • AND I'LL EXPLAIN IT
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:01.020
  • A LITTLE BIT, GIVE YOU
  • 00:21:01.020 --> 00:21:02.080
  • A LITTLE BACKGROUND
  • 00:21:02.080 --> 00:21:03.120
  • AS YOU'RE TURNING,
  • 00:21:03.120 --> 00:21:04.190
  • FIRST KINGS CHAPTER 22.
  • 00:21:04.190 --> 00:21:05.230
  • JUST GO TO THE LEFT
  • 00:21:05.230 --> 00:21:06.260
  • JUST A FEW BOOKS THERE,
  • 00:21:06.260 --> 00:21:07.290
  • FIRST KINGS CHAPTER 22.
  • 00:21:07.290 --> 00:21:09.000
  • SO AHAB IS THE KING OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:21:09.000 --> 00:21:11.060
  • HE ASKED JEHOSHAPHAT,
  • 00:21:11.060 --> 00:21:12.160
  • THE KING OF JUDAH
  • 00:21:12.160 --> 00:21:13.180
  • TO COME VISIT HIM.
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:14.210
  • JEHOSHAPHAT WAS A GOOD KING.
  • 00:21:14.210 --> 00:21:16.030
  • AHAB WAS A VERY BAD KING
  • 00:21:16.030 --> 00:21:17.080
  • -- VERY, VERY, VERY BAD,
  • 00:21:17.080 --> 00:21:18.110
  • VERY WICKED.
  • 00:21:18.110 --> 00:21:19.210
  • AHAB SAYS IN THE CONVERSATION,
  • 00:21:19.210 --> 00:21:21.200
  • "LET'S GO ATTACK
  • 00:21:21.200 --> 00:21:23.010
  • THE KING OF SYRIA AND GET BACK
  • 00:21:23.010 --> 00:21:24.100
  • RAMOTH-GILEAD THIS CITY
  • 00:21:24.100 --> 00:21:25.290
  • THAT SHOULD BE OURS."
  • 00:21:26.170 --> 00:21:29.170
  • KING JEHOSHAPHAT SAYS,
  • 00:21:29.170 --> 00:21:32.110
  • "LET'S ASK A PROPHET."
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:34.130
  • SO AHAB CALLS HIS 400 PROPHETS
  • 00:21:34.130 --> 00:21:36.130
  • THAT'S ON HIS PAYROLL
  • 00:21:36.130 --> 00:21:37.230
  • AND THEY SAID, "YES, GO!
  • 00:21:37.230 --> 00:21:38.290
  • YEAH, GOD WILL BE WITH YOU."
  • 00:21:38.290 --> 00:21:41.000
  • AND JEHOSHAPHAT SAYS,
  • 00:21:41.000 --> 00:21:43.070
  • "ANY OTHER PROPHETS?"
  • 00:21:43.070 --> 00:21:45.140
  • AND WE'LL PICK IT UP AT THAT.
  • 00:21:45.140 --> 00:21:46.230
  • FIRST KINGS 22
  • 00:21:46.230 --> 00:21:48.080
  • (THIS IS NOT MICAH THAT
  • 00:22:00.230 --> 00:22:01.280
  • WROTE THE BOOK, THIS IS
  • 00:22:01.280 --> 00:22:03.090
  • A DIFFERENT PROPHET
  • 00:22:03.090 --> 00:22:04.090
  • AND HIS NAME IS MICAIAH,
  • 00:22:04.090 --> 00:22:05.130
  • AND THEY HAVE TO BRING HIM
  • 00:22:23.060 --> 00:22:24.140
  • OUT OF PRISON.
  • 00:22:24.140 --> 00:22:25.180
  • AHAB HAD PUT HIM IN PRISON
  • 00:22:25.180 --> 00:22:26.190
  • THREE YEARS EARLIER
  • 00:22:26.190 --> 00:22:27.210
  • BECAUSE HE ALREADY TOLD HIM,
  • 00:22:27.210 --> 00:22:28.250
  • "YOU'RE GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:22:28.250 --> 00:22:29.290
  • YOU MADE GOD MAD
  • 00:22:29.290 --> 00:22:31.030
  • SO YOU'RE GOING TO DIE."
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:32.080
  • AND SO AHAB PUT HIM
  • 00:22:32.080 --> 00:22:33.090
  • [Laughing]
  • 00:22:53.080 --> 00:22:54.170
  • BASICALLY, HE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:22:54.170 --> 00:22:55.210
  • "YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:22:55.210 --> 00:22:56.220
  • TO DO IT ANYWAY.
  • 00:22:56.220 --> 00:22:57.260
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT I SAY."
  • 00:22:57.260 --> 00:22:59.010
  • THEN HE SAID, HERE'S
  • 00:22:59.010 --> 00:23:00.050
  • IN OTHER WORDS, DON'T GO
  • 00:23:11.290 --> 00:23:13.030
  • TO WAR WITH THIS KING
  • 00:23:13.030 --> 00:23:14.080
  • BECAUSE YOU WON'T COME BACK.
  • 00:23:14.080 --> 00:23:15.130
  • HERE WAS THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:23:23.050 --> 00:23:24.150
  • AHAB TRUSTED
  • 00:23:24.150 --> 00:23:25.190
  • IN HIS OWN WISDOM.
  • 00:23:25.190 --> 00:23:27.110
  • SO YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:23:27.110 --> 00:23:28.280
  • SOMETHING, GOD IS IN CONTROL,
  • 00:23:28.280 --> 00:23:31.040
  • AND WHEN YOU OPEN A DOOR,
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:32.130
  • BECAUSE YOU TRUST
  • 00:23:32.130 --> 00:23:33.180
  • IN YOUR OWN WISDOM
  • 00:23:33.180 --> 00:23:34.210
  • THAT YOU'RE SMART ENOUGH
  • 00:23:34.210 --> 00:23:35.230
  • AND YOU DON'T LISTEN
  • 00:23:35.230 --> 00:23:36.250
  • TO PEOPLE WHO SAY "STOP!
  • 00:23:36.250 --> 00:23:37.270
  • STOP! STOP!"
  • 00:23:37.270 --> 00:23:39.070
  • YOU'RE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:23:39.070 --> 00:23:40.160
  • LET ME PUT IT TO YOU
  • 00:23:40.160 --> 00:23:42.010
  • ANOTHER WAY, THERE IS
  • 00:23:42.010 --> 00:23:43.060
  • A DEMON TALKING TO YOU
  • 00:23:43.060 --> 00:23:44.100
  • AND YOU THINK IT IS GOD
  • 00:23:44.100 --> 00:23:45.180
  • BECAUSE YOU TRUST
  • 00:23:45.180 --> 00:23:46.220
  • IN YOUR OWN WISDOM
  • 00:23:46.220 --> 00:23:47.240
  • AND NOT IN THE LORD.
  • 00:23:47.240 --> 00:23:48.280
  • NO ONE CAN CORRECT YOU;
  • 00:23:48.280 --> 00:23:50.000
  • YOU'RE SMARTER THAN
  • 00:23:50.000 --> 00:23:51.020
  • EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:23:51.020 --> 00:23:52.040
  • WHEN YOU'RE SMARTER THAN
  • 00:23:52.040 --> 00:23:53.060
  • EVERYONE ELSE, YOU HAVE PRIDE.
  • 00:23:53.060 --> 00:23:54.080
  • WHEN YOU HAVE PRIDE
  • 00:23:54.080 --> 00:23:55.100
  • YOU HAVE AN OPEN DOOR.
  • 00:23:55.100 --> 00:23:56.120
  • WHEN YOU HAVE AN OPEN DOOR
  • 00:23:56.120 --> 00:23:57.140
  • THE WOLF'S COMING IN,
  • 00:23:57.140 --> 00:23:58.160
  • THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
  • 00:23:58.160 --> 00:23:59.210
  • BUT LET ME SAY THIS,
  • 00:23:59.210 --> 00:24:00.280
  • I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER PRIDE
  • 00:24:00.280 --> 00:24:02.050
  • IS TRUSTING YOUR OWN STRENGTH,
  • 00:24:02.050 --> 00:24:03.080
  • YOUR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:24:03.080 --> 00:24:04.100
  • YOUR OWN WISDOM.
