  • Thank you for your word.

  • ensnares us and letus run with endurance

  • the race set before us."
  • 00:01:13.695 --> 00:01:15.897
  • The race is life.
  • 00:01:15.930 --> 00:01:17.999
  • I'm suppose to endure.
  • 00:01:20.135 --> 00:01:22.570
  • Life sometimes isnot pleasurable,
  • 00:01:26.774 --> 00:01:29.811
  • it has to be endured,according to this.
  • 00:01:29.844 --> 00:01:34.382
  • So I am supposed tolive life in such a way
  • 00:01:34.415 --> 00:01:38.386
  • that I have positionedmyself for the long haul.
  • 00:01:38.419 --> 00:01:41.256
  • So now that immediatelytakes me out of the lust,

  • out of flesh (indistinct)
  • 00:01:44.459 --> 00:01:46.394
  • because all three ofthose are about now.
  • 00:01:46.427 --> 00:01:48.496
  • God says we don'trun out of now.
  • 00:01:49.697 --> 00:01:51.499
  • We run positioningourselves for the long haul.
  • 00:01:51.533 --> 00:01:55.403
  • Run with endurance therace set before you,
  • 00:01:55.436 --> 00:01:57.972
  • there are two things you gotto do to be for the long haul.
  • 00:01:58.006 --> 00:02:01.676
  • Look at everybody inthe room would just say,
  • 00:02:01.709 --> 00:02:03.611
  • "I'm in this for the long haul.
  • 00:02:03.645 --> 00:02:05.513
  • I'm in this marriagefor the long haul.
  • 00:02:05.547 --> 00:02:07.382
  • I'm in this businessfor the long haul.
  • 00:02:07.415 --> 00:02:09.150
  • I'm in this relationshipfor the long haul.
  • 00:02:09.184 --> 00:02:11.085
  • I am in growing as aman and a woman of God
  • 00:02:11.119 --> 00:02:14.022
  • for the long haul.
  • 00:02:14.055 --> 00:02:15.290
  • This is not a shortterm deal with me.
  • 00:02:15.323 --> 00:02:18.092
  • I don't care whatyou're going through.
  • 00:02:18.126 --> 00:02:19.394
  • I dare you to lookat somebody and say,
  • 00:02:19.427 --> 00:02:21.396
  • "I am in this forthe long haul."
  • 00:02:21.429 --> 00:02:23.531
  • If your faith has waveredand you've been shaking
  • 00:02:23.565 --> 00:02:26.234
  • to your boots, I dare youto confess with your mouth,
  • 00:02:26.267 --> 00:02:29.003
  • "I am in this thingfor the long haul."
  • 00:02:29.037 --> 00:02:31.806
  • Run with endurance.
  • 00:02:31.839 --> 00:02:33.942
  • Shoo! Hallelujah.
  • 00:02:33.975 --> 00:02:35.176
  • The race set before you,
  • 00:02:36.077 --> 00:02:37.478
  • two things we got to do you say,
  • 00:02:38.446 --> 00:02:40.181
  • "Pastor, you toldus about this."
  • 00:02:40.215 --> 00:02:41.449
  • Yeah, but I'm about to go deep.
  • 00:02:41.482 --> 00:02:43.051
  • Lay aside every weight and sin.
  • 00:02:45.220 --> 00:02:47.822
  • Every weight and every sin.
  • 00:02:53.861 --> 00:02:55.763
  • Every weight is not a sin,every sin is a weight.
  • 00:02:55.797 --> 00:03:00.235
  • Now I want to go deep in this.
  • 00:03:00.268 --> 00:03:01.736
  • I want to exhaustit as much as I can.
  • 00:03:01.769 --> 00:03:03.705
  • Galatians 6:5 says that "Everyman is to bear his own load."
  • 00:03:03.738 --> 00:03:08.743
  • These two scriptureswould seem like
  • 00:03:12.513 --> 00:03:14.048
  • they contradict each other.
  • 00:03:14.082 --> 00:03:15.483
  • So, Galatians 6:5 isadmitting that I have a weight
  • 00:03:15.516 --> 00:03:20.521
  • that I have to carry, there isa burden that I have to bear.
  • 00:03:21.990 --> 00:03:25.426
  • Let each man carry his own load.
  • 00:03:25.460 --> 00:03:28.529
  • But then Hebrew says"Lay aside every weight."
  • 00:03:28.563 --> 00:03:31.332
  • The Bible's nottalking about lay aside
  • 00:03:32.500 --> 00:03:35.536
  • the things thatare common to life.
  • 00:03:35.570 --> 00:03:38.740
  • Well, I don't like working,
  • 00:03:40.575 --> 00:03:42.143
  • somebody else can work for me.
  • 00:03:42.176 --> 00:03:44.912
  • That's not whathe's talking about.
  • 00:03:44.946 --> 00:03:47.248
  • When the Bible says, every manshould carry his own weight.
  • 00:03:47.282 --> 00:03:49.284
  • And that means the thingsthat you are responsible
  • 00:03:49.317 --> 00:03:52.520
  • for the daily task and burdensthat God has placed you
  • 00:03:52.553 --> 00:03:55.323
  • in stewardship ofit is not somebody
  • 00:03:55.356 --> 00:03:57.592
  • else's responsibilityto make your paycheck.
  • 00:03:57.625 --> 00:04:00.728
  • It's not somebodyelse's responsibility
  • 00:04:00.762 --> 00:04:02.363
  • to raise your children.
  • 00:04:02.397 --> 00:04:03.831
  • Come on, it's not somebodyelse's responsibility
  • 00:04:03.865 --> 00:04:05.533
  • to make sure your life works.
  • 00:04:05.566 --> 00:04:07.368
  • All those things areunder your responsibility.
  • 00:04:07.402 --> 00:04:11.939
  • But when the Bible says "Bareye one another's burdens
  • 00:04:11.973 --> 00:04:14.409
  • and so fulfill thelaw of Christ."
  • 00:04:14.442 --> 00:04:15.843
  • We're talking about weights,burdens, bearing load,
  • 00:04:15.877 --> 00:04:18.146
  • all this in same context.
  • 00:04:18.179 --> 00:04:19.614
  • The Bible says, "Bare yeone another's burdens."
  • 00:04:19.647 --> 00:04:21.883
  • Women, but I thoughtright here, it said,
  • 00:04:21.916 --> 00:04:23.284
  • "Bare your own load."
  • 00:04:23.318 --> 00:04:24.619
  • Yes, that whichis common to you,
  • 00:04:24.652 --> 00:04:27.588
  • but bare one another'sburdens and so fulfill
  • 00:04:27.622 --> 00:04:29.957
  • the law of Christ.
  • 00:04:29.991 --> 00:04:31.392
  • It means when you see abrother that is having to deal
  • 00:04:31.426 --> 00:04:34.462
  • with something excess,that is not common.
  • 00:04:34.495 --> 00:04:37.031
  • So you're sitting over hereand he was going about life
  • 00:04:38.499 --> 00:04:42.070
  • doing fine and theneverybody in his life
  • 00:04:42.103 --> 00:04:45.173
  • gets hit with COVID.
  • 00:04:45.206 --> 00:04:46.541
  • And then all of a suddenhe's been out of work
  • 00:04:46.574 --> 00:04:48.109
  • for three months.
  • 00:04:48.142 --> 00:04:49.177
  • He now has been hitwith an unnecessary load
  • 00:04:50.345 --> 00:04:54.582
  • that is difficult to bear.
  • 00:04:54.615 --> 00:04:56.150
  • Maybe you can keep thechildren babysit for a while.
  • 00:04:56.184 --> 00:04:59.354
  • Maybe you can say we hada little bit put aside
  • 00:04:59.387 --> 00:05:01.556
  • in our savings, but wedon't want you to miss
  • 00:05:01.589 --> 00:05:03.658
  • two mortgage payments,we're just going
  • 00:05:03.691 --> 00:05:05.360
  • to bless you right here.
  • 00:05:05.393 --> 00:05:06.761
  • And by the way, if somebodyneeds to eat supper
  • 00:05:06.794 --> 00:05:08.730
  • we always have alittle leftover.
  • 00:05:08.763 --> 00:05:10.331
  • Those are where we get involvedin somebody else's life
  • 00:05:10.365 --> 00:05:13.868
  • when we see an inordinateload or burden coming
  • 00:05:13.901 --> 00:05:16.938
  • on them that is not common.
  • 00:05:16.971 --> 00:05:19.173
  • My job is common, providingfor my house is common.
  • 00:05:19.207 --> 00:05:22.343
  • Raising my kids is common,making sure my wife
  • 00:05:22.377 --> 00:05:24.479
  • and my marriage isstrong, that is common.
  • 00:05:24.512 --> 00:05:26.981
  • But when I am burdened withexcess beyond those things
  • 00:05:27.014 --> 00:05:31.219
  • that is when the law ofChrist comes into effect
  • 00:05:31.252 --> 00:05:34.122
  • and we bare oneanother's burdens.
  • 00:05:34.155 --> 00:05:35.857
  • And the Bible sayswe are like a body.
  • 00:05:35.890 --> 00:05:37.892
  • When one suffers, we all suffer.
  • 00:05:37.925 --> 00:05:39.827
  • When one rejoices,we all rejoice.
  • 00:05:39.861 --> 00:05:42.397
  • Hey (distinct)
  • 00:05:44.599 --> 00:05:46.467
  • I just got, I got somuch running through me.
  • 00:05:46.501 --> 00:05:51.506
  • I'm trying to stay on track.
  • 00:05:52.373 --> 00:05:53.975
  • Woo! do you feel it?
  • 00:05:54.008 --> 00:05:55.543
  • I feel the spirit ofGod even right now,
  • 00:05:55.576 --> 00:05:57.278
  • as I'm speaking.
  • 00:05:57.311 --> 00:05:58.513
  • God, use it and rivetit in somebody's heart,
  • 00:05:58.546 --> 00:06:00.481
  • in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:06:00.515 --> 00:06:01.916
  • So I want you to understandall these scriptures.
  • 00:06:01.949 --> 00:06:03.684
  • God's not contradicting himself.
  • 00:06:03.718 --> 00:06:05.386
  • They have differentapplications.
  • 00:06:05.420 --> 00:06:07.989
  • So lay aside every weightand the sin that so easily
  • 00:06:08.022 --> 00:06:11.159
  • besets us, 1 Corinthians10:13, this is good.
  • 00:06:11.192 --> 00:06:15.229
  • I heard thisscripture quoted a lot
  • 00:06:16.831 --> 00:06:18.633
  • but let's break it downand see what it means.
  • 00:06:18.666 --> 00:06:20.334
  • We're talking about weights.
  • 00:06:20.368 --> 00:06:22.603
  • We're talking about burdens,talking about bearing burns.
  • 00:06:22.637 --> 00:06:24.872
  • And we're talking aboutdifference between
  • 00:06:24.906 --> 00:06:25.973
  • the weight and the sin.
  • 00:06:26.007 --> 00:06:27.809
  • So if I'm going torun with endurance,
  • 00:06:27.842 --> 00:06:29.577
  • I've got to laythese things aside
  • 00:06:29.610 --> 00:06:31.412
  • because they causeme not to endure.
  • 00:06:33.014 --> 00:06:35.183
  • 1 Corinthians 10:13,1 Corinthians 10:13,
  • 00:06:36.918 --> 00:06:41.923
  • "No temptationhas overtaken you,
  • 00:06:43.157 --> 00:06:46.861
  • except such as common to man.
  • 00:06:46.894 --> 00:06:49.030
  • But God is faithfulwho will not allow you
  • 00:06:50.264 --> 00:06:53.868
  • to be tempted beyondwhat you are able,
  • 00:06:53.901 --> 00:06:57.505
  • but with every temptationwill make a way
  • 00:06:57.538 --> 00:07:00.374
  • of escape that you willbe able to bear it."
  • 00:07:00.408 --> 00:07:03.311
  • You will be able to bear it.
  • 00:07:04.278 --> 00:07:06.481
  • The first word fortemptation here means proving
  • 00:07:06.514 --> 00:07:09.884
  • or a test of your fidelityor your faithfulness.
  • 00:07:09.917 --> 00:07:14.622
  • There is no test or provingof your faithfulness to God,
  • 00:07:14.655 --> 00:07:19.660
  • except that which is common.
  • 00:07:22.330 --> 00:07:24.065
  • Whenever we gothrough something,
  • 00:07:27.702 --> 00:07:29.370
  • we think we're the only people
  • 00:07:29.403 --> 00:07:30.771
  • in the world that'sever gone through that.
  • 00:07:30.805 --> 00:07:32.907
  • And we isolate ourselvesand we mourn and we soak
  • 00:07:34.108 --> 00:07:37.144
  • and we grieve becausenobody's had it as bad as us.
  • 00:07:37.178 --> 00:07:41.849
  • But the Bible saysthese tests in life
  • 00:07:41.883 --> 00:07:46.521
  • and this test actually means aproving of your faithfulness.
  • 00:07:46.554 --> 00:07:49.390
  • In other words,when this test comes
  • 00:07:49.423 --> 00:07:51.392
  • will you still serve God?
  • 00:07:51.425 --> 00:07:52.894
  • Jesus prophesied to Peter,
  • 00:07:54.929 --> 00:07:56.364
  • "Peter, I've prayed for youthat your faith will not fail."
  • 00:07:56.397 --> 00:07:59.033
  • In other words, hemade him understand
  • 00:07:59.066 --> 00:08:01.269
  • you have overestimatedyour strengths
  • 00:08:01.302 --> 00:08:03.404
  • and you have underestimatedyour weaknesses.
  • 00:08:03.437 --> 00:08:05.640
  • And you've beenable to serve God
  • 00:08:05.673 --> 00:08:07.275
  • because your service hasnot been put to the test,
  • 00:08:07.308 --> 00:08:09.810
  • but you and your faithfulnessis about to be tested
  • 00:08:09.844 --> 00:08:13.080
  • your fidelity to Christ andall these bold statements
  • 00:08:13.114 --> 00:08:16.984
  • of commitment that you make
  • 00:08:17.018 --> 00:08:18.352
  • they're about tobe put to the fire.
  • 00:08:18.386 --> 00:08:20.321
  • And when they wereput to the fire,
  • 00:08:20.354 --> 00:08:21.889
  • Peter found out hiscommitment and his fidelity
  • 00:08:21.923 --> 00:08:24.759
  • to the Lord was not anywherenear what he thought.
  • 00:08:24.792 --> 00:08:27.428
  • That's what thisscripture is saying.
  • 00:08:27.461 --> 00:08:29.196
  • So it says that God will nevergive me more than I can bear,
  • 00:08:29.230 --> 00:08:32.934
  • but there is no test exceptthat which is common.
  • 00:08:32.967 --> 00:08:36.704
  • Whatever you're going through,
  • 00:08:36.737 --> 00:08:38.406
  • somebody has alreadygone through it andcome out a winner.
  • 00:08:38.439 --> 00:08:41.309
  • And I want to encourage you
  • 00:08:41.342 --> 00:08:43.144
  • that you are not the onlyone in this time of testing.
  • 00:08:43.177 --> 00:08:46.347
  • There's somebody fighting it.
  • 00:08:46.380 --> 00:08:47.782
  • And there's somebody winning.
  • 00:08:47.815 --> 00:08:49.350
  • And you just neededto know that today,
  • 00:08:49.383 --> 00:08:51.319
  • you are not alonein this battle,
  • 00:08:51.352 --> 00:08:53.421
  • that there are peoplethat have a testimony
  • 00:08:53.454 --> 00:08:55.489
  • and they can alreadyclaim the thing
  • 00:08:55.523 --> 00:08:57.892
  • that you're going through,
  • 00:08:57.925 --> 00:08:59.093
  • God has alreadybrought them out of.
  • 00:08:59.126 --> 00:09:01.062
  • Can somebody shout Amenright there where you are.
  • 00:09:01.095 --> 00:09:03.731
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:09:03.764 --> 00:09:04.732
  • Now, the secondword for temptation.
  • 00:09:06.867 --> 00:09:11.872
  • Every temptation or testof your fidelity is common.
  • 00:09:13.274 --> 00:09:15.743
  • Everybody is facing itand been through it.
  • 00:09:15.776 --> 00:09:18.746
  • Let me read the secondtemptation, ready?
  • 00:09:18.779 --> 00:09:20.982
  • "But God who is faithful,will not allow you
  • 00:09:22.516 --> 00:09:24.952
  • to be tempted beyondwhat you can bear."
  • 00:09:24.986 --> 00:09:26.887
  • That second wordmeans in attempt.
  • 00:09:26.921 --> 00:09:28.823
  • So there's no test except onethat everybody has to face.
  • 00:09:30.491 --> 00:09:35.496
  • And when this attemptis made at you,
  • 00:09:36.631 --> 00:09:39.300
  • God will not let it be morethan what you can bear.
  • 00:09:40.735 --> 00:09:44.338
  • The third one right here.
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:47.241
  • Let me read aboutthe third temptation.
  • 00:09:47.274 --> 00:09:49.010
  • "But with the temptationwill make a way
  • 00:09:50.111 --> 00:09:51.946
  • of escape that you maybe able to bear it."
  • 00:09:51.979 --> 00:09:54.415
  • So let me rephrasethe whole thing.
  • 00:09:54.448 --> 00:09:57.385
  • Whenever your fidelityis being tested,
  • 00:09:57.418 --> 00:10:00.588
  • God will not let that attemptbe more than you can bear
  • 00:10:00.621 --> 00:10:04.358
  • but he will alwaysprovide a way of escape so
  • 00:10:05.760 --> 00:10:08.696
  • that you can bear it.
  • 00:10:08.729 --> 00:10:09.930
  • I did a word study on theword bear and this is amazing
  • 00:10:11.332 --> 00:10:13.768
  • I've never seen ittranslated like this.
  • 00:10:13.801 --> 00:10:15.836
  • The word is dunamis,
  • 00:10:17.138 --> 00:10:18.439
  • power, authority.
  • 00:10:20.107 --> 00:10:23.077
  • He will never let whatyou're going through,
  • 00:10:25.413 --> 00:10:27.982
  • be greater than yourown power and authority.
  • 00:10:28.015 --> 00:10:30.751
  • This scripture right heretells me that no matter
  • 00:10:33.988 --> 00:10:36.490
  • how bad it is and nomatter how you feel,
  • 00:10:36.524 --> 00:10:39.293
  • you've still got power over it.
  • 00:10:39.326 --> 00:10:41.128
  • You can still take authority.
  • 00:10:42.129 --> 00:10:43.831
  • I'm about to runthrough the camera
  • 00:10:43.864 --> 00:10:45.332
  • and come right there andpreach right where you are.
  • 00:10:45.366 --> 00:10:47.735
  • Woo! Hallelujah.
  • 00:10:47.768 --> 00:10:49.470
  • God has given youpower and authority
  • 00:10:49.503 --> 00:10:51.038
  • over the thing that feelslike it's killing you
  • 00:10:51.072 --> 00:10:52.907
  • and taking you down right now.
  • 00:10:52.940 --> 00:10:54.141
  • That's the promise of God.
  • 00:10:54.175 --> 00:10:56.110
  • So every test thathas come to you,
  • 00:10:57.645 --> 00:11:00.815
  • somebody else has alreadybeen through it in one,
  • 00:11:00.848 --> 00:11:03.184
  • God will not let theenemy's attempt be more
  • 00:11:03.217 --> 00:11:06.287
  • than what you can handle butwill provide a way of escape
  • 00:11:06.320 --> 00:11:10.524
  • and never let it beabove your dunamis,
  • 00:11:10.558 --> 00:11:12.593
  • your power and your authority.
  • 00:11:12.626 --> 00:11:14.428
  • This is the sameword that Jesus said,
  • 00:11:14.462 --> 00:11:16.797
  • "You shall receivepower, dunamis
  • 00:11:16.831 --> 00:11:19.934
  • when the Holy ghosthas come upon you."
  • 00:11:19.967 --> 00:11:22.636
  • In other words, itwill never be more,
  • 00:11:22.670 --> 00:11:26.540
  • your temptation will neverbe greater than your dunamis.
  • 00:11:26.574 --> 00:11:31.579
  • You're dunamis will always begreater than your temptation,
  • 00:11:33.514 --> 00:11:36.951
  • your power and your authority.
  • 00:11:36.984 --> 00:11:39.553
  • I'm breaking thisdown next week.
  • 00:11:39.587 --> 00:11:41.055
  • Jesus was tempted in thegarden and at all points,
  • 00:11:41.088 --> 00:11:44.158
  • every time he overpoweredthe temptation,
  • 00:11:44.191 --> 00:11:47.294
  • he overcame the temptation
  • 00:11:47.328 --> 00:11:49.230
  • and God is saying that samespirit that raised Jesus
  • 00:11:49.263 --> 00:11:53.868
  • from the dead now livesin your mortal body.
  • 00:11:53.901 --> 00:11:56.737
  • Maybe it's that, you'retrying to beat your enemy
  • 00:11:56.771 --> 00:11:59.106
  • in the flesh but youhave a Holy ghost down
  • 00:11:59.140 --> 00:12:01.976
  • on the inside of you.
  • 00:12:02.009 --> 00:12:03.677
  • And when you tap into thatpower of the Holy ghost
  • 00:12:03.711 --> 00:12:06.781
  • you can always take authorityover your temptation.
  • 00:12:06.814 --> 00:12:09.784
  • And instead of succumbingto the temptation
  • 00:12:09.817 --> 00:12:12.086
  • next time you can overcomeit because you have authority
  • 00:12:12.119 --> 00:12:15.589
  • over it in the name of Jesusand you have power over it
  • 00:12:15.623 --> 00:12:18.793
  • by the power of the Holy ghost.
  • 00:12:18.826 --> 00:12:20.461
  • I'm going to givesomebody 10 seconds
  • 00:12:20.494 --> 00:12:22.329
  • to give their God a praise.
  • 00:12:22.363 --> 00:12:24.131
  • I don't want you to getthrown out of a restaurant.
  • 00:12:24.165 --> 00:12:26.133
  • I don't want you toget in trouble at work
  • 00:12:26.167 --> 00:12:27.968

  • He said, you needto lay it aside.
  • 00:14:11.305 --> 00:14:12.940
  • The lay it aside would be
  • 00:14:13.841 --> 00:14:15.042
  • if I had a backpack thatwas weighing me down,

  • I literally shift the weight.
  • 00:14:17.344 --> 00:14:19.647
  • So God is saying, you gotto take this area in you
  • 00:14:19.680 --> 00:14:23.183
  • which is keepingyou from enduring,
  • 00:14:24.351 --> 00:14:26.553
  • causing you to continually sin
  • 00:14:26.587 --> 00:14:29.290
  • and you've got toshift the weight of it.
  • 00:14:29.323 --> 00:14:31.392
  • How do we do that?
  • 00:14:32.459 --> 00:14:33.794
  • Let's keep reading,I'm glad you asked.
  • 00:14:33.827 --> 00:14:35.796

  • Hebrews 12:1.2 letme read it again.

  • This could be so many things,

  • but I want to talkabout the sin.
  • 00:15:36.790 --> 00:15:38.158
  • I don't want to talkabout the weight.
  • 00:15:39.326 --> 00:15:40.327

  • 00:17:29.436 --> 00:17:33.440
  • and unrepented, and youignore it, you justify it,
  • 00:17:34.875 --> 00:17:38.312
  • you make excuses for it,
  • 00:17:38.345 --> 00:17:39.780
  • those are the sins thattry to make a cycle
  • 00:17:42.416 --> 00:17:45.419
  • and take you roundand round and round.
  • 00:17:46.753 --> 00:17:49.523
  • You know I never likedrunning on a treadmill.
  • 00:17:49.556 --> 00:17:52.392
  • When I lift weights, Ilift weights real fast
  • 00:17:52.426 --> 00:17:54.461
  • and I try to do my cardiowhile I lift weights.
  • 00:17:54.495 --> 00:17:56.630
  • In other words, Idon't take a rest.
  • 00:17:56.663 --> 00:17:58.332
  • You know, some people goand do a set and they look
  • 00:17:58.365 --> 00:18:00.567
  • in the mirror for 10 minutes.
  • 00:18:00.601 --> 00:18:01.568
  • No, I'm moving the whole time
  • 00:18:01.602 --> 00:18:03.804
  • because I try to keep my heartrate up by not taking a rest.
  • 00:18:03.837 --> 00:18:07.574
  • The reason I haterunning on a treadmill
  • 00:18:07.608 --> 00:18:09.643
  • is this right here.
  • 00:18:09.676 --> 00:18:11.078
  • I always think after I lookeddown and I've run a mile
  • 00:18:11.111 --> 00:18:13.447
  • or whatever, howmuch ground I could
  • 00:18:13.480 --> 00:18:16.116
  • have taken if I werenot on this cycle.
  • 00:18:16.150 --> 00:18:19.119
  • I wonder whereyour life would be,
  • 00:18:23.524 --> 00:18:25.726
  • if you were not on this cycle,
  • 00:18:28.162 --> 00:18:29.730
  • I wonder how faryou would advanced
  • 00:18:32.032 --> 00:18:36.203
  • if you were not on this cycle.
  • 00:18:36.236 --> 00:18:38.172
  • I wonder how much wealthyou would have accumulated,
  • 00:18:38.205 --> 00:18:41.441
  • if you weren't on this cycle.
  • 00:18:43.610 --> 00:18:45.112
  • I wonder...
  • 00:18:46.246 --> 00:18:47.481
  • Cycles.
  • 00:18:49.683 --> 00:18:50.517
  • When a seed is putinto the ground,
  • 00:18:51.952 --> 00:18:53.954
  • it is most easily dealtwith in its early stage.
  • 00:18:53.987 --> 00:18:57.524
  • Literally, an acornhas the power to
  • 00:18:58.659 --> 00:19:00.260
  • become a mighty Oak tree.
  • 00:19:00.294 --> 00:19:01.762
  • But after a few weeks, it'sa small sprout in the ground.
  • 00:19:01.795 --> 00:19:04.765
  • I have the ability withtwo fingers to pull it out
  • 00:19:04.798 --> 00:19:07.201
  • of the ground by the root.
  • 00:19:07.234 --> 00:19:09.269
  • And if I lay it down anddon't replant it, it will die.
  • 00:19:09.303 --> 00:19:12.072
  • But if I leave that seedin the ground unconfronted
  • 00:19:13.507 --> 00:19:16.577
  • for 30 years, that's a mightyOak tree and nothing less
  • 00:19:16.610 --> 00:19:19.379
  • than a bulldozer and aday's work to pull it up
  • 00:19:19.413 --> 00:19:22.849
  • out of the ground.
  • 00:19:22.883 --> 00:19:23.784
  • Some of us there may besomething just getting started
  • 00:19:25.686 --> 00:19:28.188
  • you can still easily pull it up.
  • 00:19:28.222 --> 00:19:30.557
  • Some of you may bedealing with something
  • 00:19:30.591 --> 00:19:31.959
  • that has plaguedyou for decades,
  • 00:19:31.992 --> 00:19:34.394
  • it may take a more powerfulforce from God to do it.
  • 00:19:34.428 --> 00:19:37.564
  • But nevertheless, it's comingout in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:19:38.999 --> 00:19:42.436
  • Hallelujah, hallelujah.
  • 00:19:42.469 --> 00:19:44.705
  • Cycles.
  • 00:19:48.141 --> 00:19:48.909
  • Two instances Iwant to give you,
  • 00:19:54.448 --> 00:19:56.016
  • when Martha criticizedMary for not helping her
  • 00:19:58.619 --> 00:20:02.422
  • prepare for Jesus'scoming to the house.
  • 00:20:02.456 --> 00:20:05.492
  • Jesus looked at Marthaand said, "Martha, Martha
  • 00:20:06.927 --> 00:20:09.196
  • you are troubledabout many things."
  • 00:20:09.229 --> 00:20:12.232
  • That word trouble is akinto this word here encompass.
  • 00:20:12.266 --> 00:20:16.236
  • Martha, he said "You werewalking around in circles."
  • 00:20:16.270 --> 00:20:20.641
  • What she was doing was nota sin, but it was a weight.
  • 00:20:20.674 --> 00:20:24.811
  • What was the weight?
  • 00:20:24.845 --> 00:20:26.213
  • Not irresponsibilitybut over responsible.
  • 00:20:26.246 --> 00:20:29.249
  • We talk about peoplethat are irresponsible
  • 00:20:31.251 --> 00:20:33.287
  • and won't takeresponsibility of things
  • 00:20:33.320 --> 00:20:34.855
  • but there are other peoplethat are over responsible
  • 00:20:34.888 --> 00:20:37.758
  • and feel that they'reresponsible for everything that
  • 00:20:37.791 --> 00:20:39.660
  • they shouldn't evenhave their nose in.
  • 00:20:39.693 --> 00:20:42.162
  • And she's trying tohandle everything.
  • 00:20:42.195 --> 00:20:44.498
  • And Jesus said, "You are on acycle because you're weighted
  • 00:20:45.999 --> 00:20:50.103
  • down with over-responsibilitythinking you need to take care
  • 00:20:50.137 --> 00:20:53.640
  • of things that I reallydon't care about."
  • 00:20:53.674 --> 00:20:55.642
  • I don't care if thepillows are fluffed.
  • 00:20:55.676 --> 00:20:57.511
  • I care about Mary'sworship here at my feet.
  • 00:20:57.544 --> 00:21:00.580
  • Two more examples,
  • 00:21:02.516 --> 00:21:03.650
  • Peter, when Jesus found Peter,
  • 00:21:04.985 --> 00:21:08.722
  • "Follow me and I willmake you fishers of men."
  • 00:21:08.755 --> 00:21:11.525
  • That was his old life,he was a fisherman.
  • 00:21:12.693 --> 00:21:14.895
  • He spent three and a half(coughs)
  • 00:21:14.928 --> 00:21:16.897
  • years with Jesus.
  • 00:21:16.930 --> 00:21:17.731
  • Pardon me.
  • 00:21:17.764 --> 00:21:19.399
  • And then when Jesuscame under deep scrutiny
  • 00:21:19.433 --> 00:21:22.569
  • and under crucifixion,everybody fled, Peter denied it.
  • 00:21:23.870 --> 00:21:28.442
  • Jesus is raised from the dead,
  • 00:21:29.309 --> 00:21:30.610
  • John 21 goes back on theshore, end of scripture
  • 00:21:30.644 --> 00:21:34.281
  • and John 21 startsout like this.
  • 00:21:34.314 --> 00:21:36.149
  • "Peter said I'm going fishing."
  • 00:21:36.183 --> 00:21:38.685
  • They were disciples,disciples were the internship.
  • 00:21:40.153 --> 00:21:43.890
  • That was the training ground.
  • 00:21:43.924 --> 00:21:45.258
  • And Jesus is about togo and the disciples
  • 00:21:45.292 --> 00:21:47.928
  • are going to transitionfrom a place of learning
  • 00:21:47.961 --> 00:21:50.230
  • to a place of authority.
  • 00:21:50.263 --> 00:21:51.832
  • They are going to continue themiraculous ministry of Jesus
  • 00:21:51.865 --> 00:21:55.202
  • in their apostolic authority.
  • 00:21:55.235 --> 00:21:57.104
  • And right when theywere about to transition
  • 00:21:57.137 --> 00:22:00.240
  • from discipleship to apostleship
  • 00:22:00.273 --> 00:22:02.709
  • all of a sudden an old thingcomes right back around
  • 00:22:02.743 --> 00:22:06.079
  • and revisits Peter.
  • 00:22:06.113 --> 00:22:07.748
  • Peter when he saidI was going fishing,
  • 00:22:08.915 --> 00:22:10.384
  • was basically saying I'm goingback to the old way of life.
  • 00:22:10.417 --> 00:22:13.453
  • Cyclical, many times, youknow that you're fighting
  • 00:22:15.856 --> 00:22:20.327
  • a cyclical sin becauseit tries to revisit you
  • 00:22:20.360 --> 00:22:23.463
  • at strategic moments.
  • 00:22:23.497 --> 00:22:25.165
  • How do you know that Godis about to promote you?
  • 00:22:25.198 --> 00:22:30.203
  • Many times when somethingfrom the past tries
  • 00:22:33.240 --> 00:22:35.742
  • to come around and revisit you.
  • 00:22:35.776 --> 00:22:37.377
  • And right at theentry of apostleship,
  • 00:22:37.411 --> 00:22:40.614
  • something way back herecycles its way back around
  • 00:22:42.048 --> 00:22:44.951
  • and revisits his life.
  • 00:22:44.985 --> 00:22:46.420
  • I prophesies in the nameof Jesus almighty God
  • 00:22:46.453 --> 00:22:49.756
  • that this enemy we have seen,
  • 00:22:49.790 --> 00:22:52.292
  • like the Egyptiansfollowing the Israelites
  • 00:22:52.325 --> 00:22:54.528
  • we will see no more.
  • 00:22:54.561 --> 00:22:56.129
  • And I thank you Lord thatthese old sins will not
  • 00:22:56.163 --> 00:22:59.232
  • revisit our life andbring destruction
  • 00:22:59.266 --> 00:23:01.701
  • and try to thwart our future.
  • 00:23:01.735 --> 00:23:03.303
  • But I declare by thepower of the Holy ghost
  • 00:23:03.336 --> 00:23:05.739
  • in the name of Jesus,the strong son of God,
  • 00:23:05.772 --> 00:23:08.909
  • I declare the cycles are broken.
  • 00:23:08.942 --> 00:23:10.811
  • The yolks are destroyed.
  • 00:23:10.844 --> 00:23:12.279
  • The burdens of removed breakthe cycle in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:23:12.312 --> 00:23:15.615
  • And I thank you that we'refree to pursue our future.
  • 00:23:15.649 --> 00:23:18.351
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:23:20.620 --> 00:23:23.223
  • - As always, and I'vebeen saying this formany, many years.
  • 00:23:51.384 --> 00:23:53.787
  • I hope sincerely, I hopethat you're enjoying
  • 00:23:53.820 --> 00:23:56.890
  • these messages.
  • 00:23:56.923 --> 00:23:58.124
  • And I know thatwhen I'm studying
  • 00:23:58.158 --> 00:24:00.727
  • and investing in the timeto prepare these messages
  • 00:24:00.760 --> 00:24:03.029
  • I do them in such a way whereI hope they communicate well.
  • 00:24:03.063 --> 00:24:06.366
  • And I hope that youcan understand them.
  • 00:24:06.399 --> 00:24:07.734
  • I feel like I've failedas a communicator,
  • 00:24:07.767 --> 00:24:09.936
  • if you don't havesomething you can take
  • 00:24:09.970 --> 00:24:11.638
  • with you and begin toimplement it in your life.
  • 00:24:11.671 --> 00:24:14.374
  • That is when theBible becomes real,
  • 00:24:14.407 --> 00:24:17.344
  • is when it's implementable.
  • 00:24:17.377 --> 00:24:18.845
  • When it's something that'stangible and you can turn it
  • 00:24:18.879 --> 00:24:21.081
  • into activity, that isthe best thing to do
  • 00:24:21.114 --> 00:24:23.617
  • with the things thatyou're hearing right now.
  • 00:24:23.650 --> 00:24:26.253
  • Thank you so much forjoining our broadcast.
  • 00:24:26.286 --> 00:24:28.855
  • We couldn't do whatwe do without you.
  • 00:24:28.889 --> 00:24:30.657
  • This is a time where we end andjust give our appeal to you.
  • 00:24:30.690 --> 00:24:34.661
  • Would you consider blessingthe thing that blessed you
  • 00:24:34.694 --> 00:24:36.863
  • pouring into the thingthat poured into you?
  • 00:24:36.897 --> 00:24:39.032
  • You know, there is a principlethat cannot be violated.
  • 00:24:39.065 --> 00:24:43.837
  • The Bible says," Godwill not be mocked
  • 00:24:43.870 --> 00:24:45.305
  • whatever man sows,that shall he reap."
  • 00:24:45.338 --> 00:24:46.940
  • You've heard that even if you'renot in church but it says,
  • 00:24:46.973 --> 00:24:49.976
  • God will not be mocked.
  • 00:24:50.010 --> 00:24:51.478
  • In other words, if you canget something out of it
  • 00:24:51.511 --> 00:24:53.680
  • that you weren'twilling to invest init, then God is mocked.
  • 00:24:53.713 --> 00:24:56.383
  • Why?
  • 00:24:56.416 --> 00:24:57.617
  • Because when hecreated the earth
  • 00:24:57.651 --> 00:24:58.818
  • he put it on a systemthat was cyclical.
  • 00:24:58.852 --> 00:25:01.388
  • In other words, God onlycreated beans and tomatoes
  • 00:25:01.421 --> 00:25:04.891
  • and cucumbers andpotatoes and corn
  • 00:25:04.925 --> 00:25:06.893
  • and the livestock,one time, why?
  • 00:25:06.927 --> 00:25:09.696
  • If not, he'd have to come downevery season and recreate it.
  • 00:25:09.729 --> 00:25:12.198
  • But he put it on a cycle so that
  • 00:25:12.232 --> 00:25:14.668
  • everything feeds each other.
  • 00:25:14.701 --> 00:25:16.736
  • In other words, the wellthat you drink from,
  • 00:25:16.770 --> 00:25:19.839
  • would you considerturning back around
  • 00:25:19.873 --> 00:25:22.542
  • and replenishing that well.
  • 00:25:22.576 --> 00:25:23.777
  • We don't sell ads, Wedon't sell commercials.
  • 00:25:23.810 --> 00:25:25.712
  • We didn't stop and try toget you to buy anything.
  • 00:25:25.745 --> 00:25:28.715
  • This is just to let youknow all the messages are
  • 00:25:28.748 --> 00:25:30.717
  • online for a certainamount of time.
  • 00:25:30.750 --> 00:25:33.219
  • Then they drop in our archives.
  • 00:25:33.253 --> 00:25:34.988
  • You can get them in the vault
  • 00:25:35.021 --> 00:25:36.456
  • if you want to doit digitally, or CDs
  • 00:25:36.489 --> 00:25:38.525
  • and DVDs are still available.
  • 00:25:38.558 --> 00:25:39.459
  • But how do we do what we do?
  • 00:25:39.492 --> 00:25:40.226
  • How do we buy the time?
  • 00:25:42.195 --> 00:25:43.330
  • How do we have the technology?
  • 00:25:43.363 --> 00:25:44.931
  • How do we pay the engineer?
  • 00:25:44.965 --> 00:25:46.166
  • How do we do what we do?
  • 00:25:46.199 --> 00:25:47.734
  • Is because people like youenjoy it and are faithful
  • 00:25:47.767 --> 00:25:50.770
  • to turn around and say,"I want to bless back."
  • 00:25:50.804 --> 00:25:53.073
  • Thank you.
  • 00:25:53.106 --> 00:25:54.307
