  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: THE REASON
  • 00:00:11.210 --> 00:00:14.210
  • THAT THE BIBLICAL BORDERS
  • 00:00:14.210 --> 00:00:15.080
  • OF MARRIAGE ARE BROKEN
  • 00:00:15.080 --> 00:00:16.120
  • IS BECAUSE INDIVIDUALS,
  • 00:00:16.120 --> 00:00:17.220
  • MEN AND WOMEN,
  • 00:00:17.220 --> 00:00:18.230
  • HAVE REFUSED TO TAKE
  • 00:00:18.230 --> 00:00:20.160
  • THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:00:20.160 --> 00:00:21.230
  • THAT IS UPON THEM TO MAINTAIN
  • 00:00:21.230 --> 00:00:24.050
  • A HEALTHY MARRIAGE.
  • 00:00:24.050 --> 00:00:25.070
  • IT'S NOT THAT WE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:00:25.070 --> 00:00:26.060
  • WHAT TO DO;
  • 00:00:26.060 --> 00:00:27.050
  • IT'S THAT WE'VE NOT WILLING TO
  • 00:00:27.050 --> 00:00:28.090
  • DO WHAT GOD'S ASKED US TO DO.
  • 00:00:28.090 --> 00:00:30.260
  • IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:00:30.260 --> 00:00:32.050
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE BOOKS.
  • 00:00:32.050 --> 00:00:33.080
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE SEMINARS.
  • 00:00:33.080 --> 00:00:34.130
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE PODCASTS.
  • 00:00:34.130 --> 00:00:35.290
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE
  • 00:00:35.290 --> 00:00:36.180
  • SUNDAY SCHOOLS.
  • 00:00:36.180 --> 00:00:37.120
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE GROUPS.
  • 00:00:37.120 --> 00:00:38.190
  • WE'VE GOT ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:00:38.190 --> 00:00:40.020
  • TO SUPPORT MARRIAGE.
  • 00:00:40.020 --> 00:00:41.070
  • AND WHEN IT COMES TO HAVING
  • 00:00:41.070 --> 00:00:42.100
  • A HEALTHY MARRIAGE,
  • 00:00:42.100 --> 00:00:43.050
  • WE'RE JUST NOT WILLING TO DO
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:44.090
  • THE WORK.
  • 00:00:44.100 --> 00:00:47.100
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT ANYTHING
  • 00:00:47.100 --> 00:00:48.100
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE GOOD AT
  • 00:00:48.100 --> 00:00:49.120
  • IN LIFE REQUIRES EFFORT.
  • 00:00:49.120 --> 00:00:52.070
  • GOOD GOLFERS ARE GOOD GOLFERS.
  • 00:00:52.070 --> 00:00:53.280
  • WHY?
  • 00:00:53.280 --> 00:00:54.130
  • BECAUSE THEY WORK AT GOLF.
  • 00:00:54.130 --> 00:00:56.260
  • THEY DON'T HIT 30-FOOT PUTTS
  • 00:00:56.260 --> 00:00:58.060
  • ON ACCIDENT;
  • 00:00:58.060 --> 00:00:59.000
  • THEY PRACTICE THAT.
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:01.060
  • GOOD MUSICIANS ARE GOOD
  • 00:01:01.060 --> 00:01:02.080
  • MUSICIANS BECAUSE THEY PRACTICE
  • 00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:03.250
  • THEIR INSTRUMENT.
  • 00:01:03.250 --> 00:01:05.080
  • GOOD BUSINESSMEN ARE GOOD
  • 00:01:05.080 --> 00:01:06.120
  • BUSINESSMEN BECAUSE THEY WORK
  • 00:01:06.120 --> 00:01:07.230
  • AT BEING GOOD BUSINESSMEN.
  • 00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:09.170
  • GOOD HUSBANDS AND GOOD WIVES
  • 00:01:09.170 --> 00:01:11.110
  • DID NOT BECOME GOOD HUSBANDS
  • 00:01:11.110 --> 00:01:12.180
  • AND WIVES BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:01:12.180 --> 00:01:13.240
  • THE LUCKY ONES.
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:14.220
  • THEY WORKED AT DOING WHAT WAS
  • 00:01:14.220 --> 00:01:16.250
  • REQUIRED IN ORDER TO BUILD
  • 00:01:16.250 --> 00:01:18.290
  • A GOOD FAMILY.
  • 00:01:18.290 --> 00:01:21.070
  • SO IN ORDER TO HELP US
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:22.080
  • UNDERSTAND THE BROKEN BORDERS
  • 00:01:22.080 --> 00:01:23.230
  • OF MARRIAGE AND WHAT WE NEED
  • 00:01:23.230 --> 00:01:24.270
  • TO DO,
  • 00:01:24.270 --> 00:01:25.150
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO
  • 00:01:25.150 --> 00:01:26.200
  • THE SONG OF SOLOMON.
  • 00:01:26.200 --> 00:01:27.260
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO PSALMS
  • 00:01:27.260 --> 00:01:29.050
  • OR PROVERBS WHERE ALL
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:30.090
  • OF THE LOVE VERSES ARE FOUND.
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:32.040
  • I'M GOING TO LOOK AT THE LIFE
  • 00:01:32.040 --> 00:01:33.200
  • OF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:01:33.200 --> 00:01:34.120
  • BECAUSE HE WAS A WALL BUILDER.
  • 00:01:34.200 --> 00:01:37.200
  • AND I WANT YOU TO SEE
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:38.180
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT HE USED
  • 00:01:38.180 --> 00:01:40.110
  • IN HIS CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:01:40.110 --> 00:01:42.000
  • AND ALLOW THEM TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:44.180
  • IN YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:46.110
  • WHEN IT COMES TO BUILDING
  • 00:01:46.110 --> 00:01:47.230
  • A GOOD FAMILY,
  • 00:01:47.230 --> 00:01:49.150
  • BECAUSE THE BORDERS
  • 00:01:49.150 --> 00:01:50.140
  • OF THE FAMILY IN THIS NATION
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:52.150
  • ARE BROKEN.
  • 00:01:52.150 --> 00:01:54.050
  • AND BY GOD'S GRACE,
  • 00:01:54.050 --> 00:01:55.070
  • BY THE TIME THIS SERVICE
  • 00:01:55.070 --> 00:01:56.040
  • IS OVER,
  • 00:01:56.040 --> 00:01:56.180
  • WE WILL ALL UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR
  • 00:01:56.180 --> 00:01:58.120
  • RESPONSIBILITY IS TO SEE THEM
  • 00:01:58.120 --> 00:02:00.160
  • REBUILT IN AMERICA TODAY.
  • 00:02:00.160 --> 00:02:03.150
  • LET'S READ NEHEMIAH 2:17.
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:06.230
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:02:06.230 --> 00:02:07.160
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:08.140
  • "THEN I SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:02:08.140 --> 00:02:10.290
  • 'YOU SEE THE DISTRESS
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:12.280
  • THAT WE ARE IN,
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:14.030
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:15.260
  • AND ITS GATES ARE BURDENED
  • 00:02:15.260 --> 00:02:16.280
  • WITH FIRE.
  • 00:02:16.280 --> 00:02:18.060
  • COME LET US BUILD THE WALL
  • 00:02:18.060 --> 00:02:20.010
  • OF JERUSALEM;
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:21.030
  • THAT WE MAY NO LONGER BE
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:22.280
  • A REPROACH.'
  • 00:02:22.280 --> 00:02:24.110
  • AND I TOLD THEM OF THE HAND
  • 00:02:24.110 --> 00:02:26.070
  • OF GOD,
  • 00:02:26.070 --> 00:02:26.240
  • WHICH HAD BEEN GOOD UPON ME,
  • 00:02:26.240 --> 00:02:28.170
  • AND ALSO OF THE KING'S WORDS
  • 00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:30.110
  • THAT HE HAD SPOKEN TO ME.
  • 00:02:30.110 --> 00:02:32.130
  • SO THEY SAID,
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:33.100
  • 'LET US RISE UP AND BUILD.'
  • 00:02:33.100 --> 00:02:36.080
  • AND THEN THEY SET THEIR HANDS
  • 00:02:36.080 --> 00:02:38.100
  • TO DO THIS GOOD WORK."
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:41.200
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:42.260
  • LET YOUR WORD COME ALIVE IN US
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.210
  • TODAY;
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:46.020
  • THAT WE,
  • 00:02:46.020 --> 00:02:46.200
  • LIKE THE PEOPLE IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:48.010
  • IN NEHEMIAH'S DAY,
  • 00:02:48.010 --> 00:02:50.040
  • WOULD SET OUR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:51.210
  • THE GOOD WORK OF BUILDING
  • 00:02:51.210 --> 00:02:53.060
  • GODLY FAMILIES.
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:55.060
  • LET THE POWER
  • 00:02:55.060 --> 00:02:55.290
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:02:55.290 --> 00:02:56.290
  • CARRY THIS WORD PAST
  • 00:02:56.290 --> 00:02:58.130
  • THIS SERMON AND THIS SANCTUARY
  • 00:02:58.130 --> 00:03:00.090
  • INTO OUR HEARTS AND LIVES;
  • 00:03:00.090 --> 00:03:02.150
  • THAT WE COULD CHANGE THE FUTURE
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:03.240
  • OF THIS NATION FOR THE CAUSE
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:05.250
  • OF CHRIST' AND RIGHTEOUSNESS'
  • 00:03:05.250 --> 00:03:06.290
  • SAKE.
  • 00:03:06.290 --> 00:03:07.290
  • IT'S IN JESUS' NAME
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:08.170
  • THAT WE PRAY AND ASK.
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:09.120
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:03:09.120 --> 00:03:11.070
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:12.060
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:03:12.060 --> 00:03:13.000
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:16.230
  • I LIKE WHAT NEHEMIAH 2:18 SAYS.
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:19.200
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:20.040
  • "THEY SET THEIR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:22.230
  • GOOD WORK."
  • 00:03:22.230 --> 00:03:25.130
  • "GOOD WORK."
  • 00:03:25.130 --> 00:03:27.100
  • NOTICE THAT THERE'S
  • 00:03:27.100 --> 00:03:28.000
  • A DISTINCTION THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:29.100
  • MAKES ABOUT THE WORK
  • 00:03:29.100 --> 00:03:30.090
  • THAT'S BEING DONE.
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:31.130
  • IT'S NOT JUST ANY WORK;
  • 00:03:31.130 --> 00:03:33.060
  • IT'S GOOD WORK.
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.270
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:03:34.270 --> 00:03:35.150
  • THAT I BELIEVE IS IMPORTANT,
  • 00:03:35.150 --> 00:03:36.230
  • BEFORE WE CAN EVEN BEGIN TO
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:38.200
  • EXPECT MARRIAGES TO GET BETTER,
  • 00:03:38.200 --> 00:03:40.270
  • IS THAT WE HAVE GOT TO MAKE
  • 00:03:40.270 --> 00:03:42.050
  • A DECISION THAT WE ARE GOING
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:43.190
  • TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:47.000
  • BECAUSE WHETHER YOU KNOW IT
  • 00:03:47.000 --> 00:03:47.220
  • OR NOT,
  • 00:03:47.220 --> 00:03:48.080
  • WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:49.120
  • RIGHT NOW EACH AND EVERY ONE
  • 00:03:49.120 --> 00:03:50.250
  • OF US ARE WORKING ON
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:52.180
  • OUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:53.220
  • YOU SAY, "WELL, I'M SINGLE."
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:54.290
  • DON'T WORRY;
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:03:55.150
  • YOU'RE STILL WORKING ON
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:56.150
  • YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:59.020
  • YOU'RE EITHER DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:03:59.020 --> 00:04:00.170
  • GETTING READY TO BE
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:01.130
  • A GOOD SPOUSE;
  • 00:04:01.130 --> 00:04:02.080
  • OR YOU'RE DOING BAD WORK,
  • 00:04:02.080 --> 00:04:03.180
  • GETTING READY TO BE A PROBLEM
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:05.010
  • FOR SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:08.040
  • SINGLE PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:04:08.040 --> 00:04:08.270
  • "I'M WAITING FOR MARRIAGE
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:09.250
  • TO COMPLETE ME."
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:11.080
  • BELIEVE ME,
  • 00:04:11.080 --> 00:04:12.050
  • JERRY MCGUIRE LIED.
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:15.010
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:15.010 --> 00:04:17.110
  • IF YOU ARE A BROKEN PERSON
  • 00:04:17.110 --> 00:04:19.040
  • BEFORE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:04:19.040 --> 00:04:20.190
  • MARRIAGE IS NOT GOING TO FIX
  • 00:04:20.190 --> 00:04:22.020
  • YOUR BROKENNESS.
  • 00:04:22.020 --> 00:04:23.020
  • IT'S JUST GOING TO BREAK DOWN
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:24.080
  • WHAT'S ALREADY BROKE.
  • 00:04:24.080 --> 00:04:26.000
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.100
  • SO WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THIS
  • 00:04:27.100 --> 00:04:28.090
  • MESSAGE TODAY ABOUT MARRIAGE,
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:30.130
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:04:30.130 --> 00:04:31.280
  • BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A RING
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:33.000
  • ON YOUR FINGER.
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:33.280
  • RECOGNIZE THAT THESE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:35.240
  • ARE REQUIRED OF ALL OF US.
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:38.090
  • SOME OF YOU SAY,
  • 00:04:38.090 --> 00:04:38.220
  • "WELL I'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:39.140
  • 40 YEARS."
  • 00:04:39.140 --> 00:04:40.130
  • HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:04:40.130 --> 00:04:41.080
  • YOU HAVE THE SECRET TO HELPING
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:44.110
  • OTHERS SUCCEED
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:45.260
  • IN THEIR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:47.270
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:49.090
  • BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU'VE
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:50.000
  • ALREADY GOT THIS THING FIXED.
  • 00:04:50.000 --> 00:04:51.230
  • YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE
  • 00:04:51.230 --> 00:04:53.110
  • WHO NEED YOUR HELP
  • 00:04:53.110 --> 00:04:54.080
  • GETTING THINGS FIXED.
  • 00:04:54.080 --> 00:04:56.140
  • SO MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:57.180
  • TO THEM.
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:04:59.050
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:04:59.050 --> 00:05:00.180
  • THROUGH NEHEMIAH'S LIFE,
  • 00:05:00.180 --> 00:05:01.250
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT GOD WANTS
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:03.100
  • US TO APPLY TO OUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:03.100 --> 00:05:05.040
  • BUT THE FIRST PRINCIPLE IS
  • 00:05:05.040 --> 00:05:06.210
  • WE HAVE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:05:07.100 --> 00:05:10.100
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:11.080
  • GOOD WORK.
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:13.130
  • BECAUSE IF WE DON'T DO
  • 00:05:13.130 --> 00:05:14.180
  • GOOD WORK,
  • 00:05:14.180 --> 00:05:15.060
  • WE'RE GOING TO TEAR DOWN
  • 00:05:15.060 --> 00:05:16.120
  • INSTEAD OF BUILD UP.
  • 00:05:16.120 --> 00:05:18.080
  • WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR WORDS,
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:19.220
  • NOT TO ENCOURAGE,
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:20.220
  • BUT TO CREATE BITTERNESS
  • 00:05:20.220 --> 00:05:22.070
  • AND STRIFE.
  • 00:05:22.070 --> 00:05:23.130
  • WE'RE GOING TO WEAKEN
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:24.170
  • RATHER THAN STRENGTHEN
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:26.000
  • THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT GOD
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:27.060
  • HAS GIVEN US.
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.240
  • WHEN WE COMMIT OURSELVES
  • 00:05:28.240 --> 00:05:29.270
  • TO DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:31.090
  • WE GIVE OUR MARRIAGES
  • 00:05:31.090 --> 00:05:32.250
  • THE PRIORITY THAT THEY DESERVE.
  • 00:05:32.250 --> 00:05:35.190
  • THE NATIONAL HEALTH AND SCIENCE
  • 00:05:35.190 --> 00:05:36.200
  • CENTER DID A STUDY.
  • 00:05:36.200 --> 00:05:37.270
  • AND IT SAID THAT 80%
  • 00:05:37.270 --> 00:05:39.130
  • OF MARRIED COUPLES TODAY
  • 00:05:39.130 --> 00:05:40.260
  • WILL NOT CELEBRATE
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:42.090
  • THEIR 20TH ANNIVERSARY.
  • 00:05:42.090 --> 00:05:45.050
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:47.050
  • WHEN WE GATHER AT A WEDDING,
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:48.180
  • DO WE TOAST THE BRIDE AND GROOM
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:50.210
  • BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:51.170
  • FOR THE NEXT 19 YEARS,
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:53.030
  • THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:53.250
  • EACH OTHER MISERABLE?
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:55.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:55.180 --> 00:05:56.220
  • NO.
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:58.160
  • WE TOAST THEIR POTENTIAL.
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:06:01.100
  • WE TOAST WHAT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:06:01.100 --> 00:06:02.250
  • WE SEE IN THEIR FUTURE.
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:04.130
  • WE TALK ABOUT THE GOOD THINGS
  • 00:06:04.130 --> 00:06:05.250
  • THAT ARE TO COME.
  • 00:06:05.250 --> 00:06:07.060
  • WE DON'T FLIP A COIN AND SAY,
  • 00:06:07.060 --> 00:06:08.140
  • "WHICH ONE WILL YOU BE?
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:09.180
  • DIVORCED OR TOGETHER?"
  • 00:06:09.180 --> 00:06:12.110
  • THE THING THAT REQUIRES
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:13.270
  • YOUR MARRIAGE TO CONTINUE IS
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.220
  • YOUR WILLINGNESS TO CONTINUE
  • 00:06:15.220 --> 00:06:17.120
  • TO DO GOOD WORKS.
  • 00:06:17.120 --> 00:06:18.140
  • WHEN PEOPLE STOP AND THEY SEE
  • 00:06:18.140 --> 00:06:19.250
  • ALL OF THE DAMAGE THAT'S BEEN
  • 00:06:19.250 --> 00:06:20.290
  • DONE IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.140
  • RATHER THAN START TO REBUILD
  • 00:06:22.140 --> 00:06:24.020
  • THE BROKEN BARRIER
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:24.290
  • OF THEIR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:25.270
  • THEY THINK IT'S JUST EASIER
  • 00:06:25.270 --> 00:06:27.000
  • TO START OVER WITH A BRAND NEW
  • 00:06:27.000 --> 00:06:28.100
  • CONSTRUCTION COMPANY.
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:31.110
  • BUT GUESS WHAT THEY FIND
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:32.050
  • WHEN THEY GET THERE?
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:33.140
  • MORE WORK.
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:37.060
  • WE'VE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:06:37.060 --> 00:06:39.100
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:06:39.100 --> 00:06:40.120
  • PRINCIPLES FOR DOING GOOD WORK.
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:42.120
  • AND THE FIRST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:06:42.120 --> 00:06:43.130
  • HE GIVES US GOES RIGHT BACK
  • 00:06:43.130 --> 00:06:44.260
  • TO TALKING TO SINGLE PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:44.260 --> 00:06:46.120
  • AND THAT IS THIS;
  • 00:06:46.120 --> 00:06:47.090
  • BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE WORK,
  • 00:06:47.090 --> 00:06:48.190
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT.
  • 00:06:49.100 --> 00:06:52.100
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:55.040
  • NEHEMIAH IS THE CUPBEARER
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:57.070
  • FOR KING ARTAXERXES.
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:59.120
  • NOW THESE MIGHT SOUND LIKE
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:00.130
  • INSIGNIFICANT NAMES.
  • 00:07:00.130 --> 00:07:01.130
  • BUT IN THEIR DAY,
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:02.190
  • THEY WERE VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:03.190
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:03.190 --> 00:07:04.020
  • BECAUSE KING ARTAXERXES WAS
  • 00:07:04.020 --> 00:07:05.270
  • THE RULER OF THE KNOWN WORLD.
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.150
  • HE WAS THE KING IN BABYLON.
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:08.280
  • AND BABYLON HAD CONQUERED
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:10.060
  • PRETTY MUCH ALL
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:10.250
  • OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD.
  • 00:07:10.250 --> 00:07:11.250
  • NEHEMIAH STOOD IN FRONT OF HIM
  • 00:07:11.250 --> 00:07:13.260
  • ON A DAILY BASIS
  • 00:07:13.260 --> 00:07:15.010
  • AS HIS CUPBEARER.
  • 00:07:15.010 --> 00:07:16.290
  • WHEN YOU'RE A CUPBEARER,
  • 00:07:16.290 --> 00:07:18.030
  • YOU HAVE GOT A PRETTY PATHETIC
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:19.250
  • EXISTENCE.
  • 00:07:19.250 --> 00:07:21.150
  • AND THE REASON YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:22.060
  • A PATHETIC EXISTENCE
  • 00:07:22.060 --> 00:07:23.110
  • IS BECAUSE YOUR JOB IS
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:24.200
  • TO BRING THE KING HIS WINE.
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:26.110
  • AND YOUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO BE
  • 00:07:26.110 --> 00:07:28.010
  • THE SOMMELIER THAT TELLS HIM
  • 00:07:28.010 --> 00:07:29.190
  • ALL OF THE WONDERFUL FLAVORS
  • 00:07:29.190 --> 00:07:30.210
  • HE'S ABOUT TO ENJOY.
  • 00:07:30.210 --> 00:07:33.030
  • YOUR JOB IS TO SIP THE WINE
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:35.050
  • BEFORE THE KING DOES
  • 00:07:35.050 --> 00:07:36.110
  • SO THAT IF ANYBODY'S TRYING
  • 00:07:36.110 --> 00:07:37.160
  • TO POISON THE KING,
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:38.260
  • YOU DIE.
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:40.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:40.150 --> 00:07:42.150
  • SO NEHEMIAH KNOWS THAT
  • 00:07:42.150 --> 00:07:44.000
  • WITH HIS NEXT SIP,
  • 00:07:44.000 --> 00:07:45.080
  • HE COULD TAKE HIS FINAL TRIP.
  • 00:07:45.170 --> 00:07:48.170
  • NOW I KNOW SOME OF YOU THINK
  • 00:07:48.170 --> 00:07:49.150
  • YOU'VE GOT STRESSFUL
  • 00:07:49.150 --> 00:07:50.160
  • WORK ENVIRONMENTS,
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:51.130
  • BUT THINK ABOUT HIS JOB.
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:53.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:53.190 --> 00:07:55.050
  • IF NEHEMIAH DIES,
  • 00:07:55.050 --> 00:07:56.120
  • THEY JUST DRAG HIM OUT AND THEY
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:57.290
  • BRING IN A BRAND NEW CUPBEARER.
  • 00:07:58.090 --> 00:08:01.110
  • NOT ONLY IS HIS JOB STRESSFUL,
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:02.260
  • BUT THE MEN HE'S WORKING FOR
  • 00:08:02.260 --> 00:08:04.070
  • IS TEMPERAMENTAL.
  • 00:08:04.070 --> 00:08:05.030
  • KING ARTAXERXES IS NOT KNOWN
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:07.010
  • FOR BEING A MILD-MANNERED
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:08.060
  • KIND OF GUY.
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:09.140
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:08:09.140 --> 00:08:10.060
  • ONE OF THE EDICTS THAT
  • 00:08:10.060 --> 00:08:11.090
  • ARTAXERXES WROTE IS RECORDED
  • 00:08:11.090 --> 00:08:13.060
  • IN THE BOOK OF EZRA.
  • 00:08:13.060 --> 00:08:14.140
  • AND IN THE BOOK OF EZRA,
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:15.170
  • HE WRITES IN 7:26,
  • 00:08:15.170 --> 00:08:18.100
  • "WHOEVER DOES NOT OBSERVE
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:19.150
  • THE LAW OF THE KING,
  • 00:08:19.150 --> 00:08:20.160
  • LET JUDGMENT BE BROUGHT UPON
  • 00:08:20.160 --> 00:08:22.000
  • HIM SPEEDILY,
  • 00:08:22.000 --> 00:08:23.040
  • WHETHER IT BE DEATH,
  • 00:08:23.040 --> 00:08:24.090
  • BANISHMENT,
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:24.270
  • CONFISCATION OF GOODS,
  • 00:08:24.270 --> 00:08:26.000
  • OR IMPRISONMENT."
  • 00:08:26.000 --> 00:08:26.260
  • HOW MANY OF YOU SEE A LITTLE
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:27.260
  • BIT OF TYPE A IN ARTAXERXES?
  • 00:08:27.260 --> 00:08:30.090
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.160
  • HERE'S NEHEMIAH'S PROBLEM;
  • 00:08:32.160 --> 00:08:34.190
  • IN CHAPTER 1,
  • 00:08:34.190 --> 00:08:35.160
  • HIS BROTHER COMES
  • 00:08:35.160 --> 00:08:36.190
  • FROM JERUSALEM,
  • 00:08:36.190 --> 00:08:37.110
  • HIS HOMETOWN,
  • 00:08:37.110 --> 00:08:38.060
  • AND HE TELLS HIM,
  • 00:08:38.060 --> 00:08:39.020
  • "THE WALLS ARE BROKEN DOWN.
  • 00:08:39.020 --> 00:08:40.160
  • THE GATES ARE BURNED."
  • 00:08:40.160 --> 00:08:42.110
  • IT BREAKS NEHEMIAH'S HEART.
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:44.060
  • HE GOES BEFORE THE LORD
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:45.050
  • WITH FASTING AND PRAYER.
  • 00:08:45.050 --> 00:08:46.050
  • HE ASKS THE LORD TO DO
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:48.040
  • SOMETHING ON HIS BEHALF.
  • 00:08:48.040 --> 00:08:49.190
  • AND IF HIS OUTSIDE SITUATION
  • 00:08:49.190 --> 00:08:51.110
  • WASN'T BAD ENOUGH,
  • 00:08:51.110 --> 00:08:52.100
  • NEHEMIAH HAS GOT TO GO TO WORK.
  • 00:08:52.170 --> 00:08:55.170
  • SO HE GETS UP
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:56.040
  • AND HE GOES BEFORE THE KING.
  • 00:08:56.040 --> 00:08:57.170
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:08:57.170 --> 00:08:58.010
  • "I TOOK THE KING HIS WINE
  • 00:08:58.010 --> 00:08:59.230
  • AND I HAD NEVER BEEN SAD
  • 00:08:59.230 --> 00:09:01.210
  • IN HIS PRESENCE BEFORE."
  • 00:09:01.210 --> 00:09:03.030
  • NOW THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:04.050
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:04.050 --> 00:09:04.240
  • BECAUSE IF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:09:04.240 --> 00:09:06.000
  • THE CUPBEARER, LOOKS SAD,
  • 00:09:06.000 --> 00:09:07.190
  • ARTAXERXES WONDERS
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:08.290
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE DRINK.
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:12.180
  • AND IF ARTAXERXES
  • 00:09:12.180 --> 00:09:13.180
  • SUSPECTS THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:16.000
  • IS A PART OF THE CONSPIRACY,
  • 00:09:16.000 --> 00:09:17.200
  • HE'D JUST HAVE HIM KILLED.
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:19.280
  • SO GOING TO WORK WITH A BAD
  • 00:09:19.280 --> 00:09:21.000
  • ATTITUDE FOR ARTAXERXES
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:22.220
  • DOESN'T GET YOU TIME OFF;
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:24.120
  • IT GETS YOUR HEAD OFF.
  • 00:09:24.120 --> 00:09:26.120
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:27.010
  • AND XERXES LOOKS AT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:28.250
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:28.250 --> 00:09:29.090
  • "YOU HAVE NEVER HAD
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.050
  • A SAD COUNTENANCE BEFORE.
  • 00:09:30.050 --> 00:09:32.010
  • ARE YOU SICK
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:34.000
  • OR IS THIS SORROW OF HEART?"
  • 00:09:34.000 --> 00:09:36.140
  • AND NEHEMIAH SAYS,
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:37.040
  • "I BECAME DREADFULLY AFRAID."
  • 00:09:37.230 --> 00:09:40.230
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES HIM
  • 00:09:40.230 --> 00:09:41.190
  • THE ANSWER.
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:42.030
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:42.030 --> 00:09:42.200
  • "THE GATES OF MY CITY
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:43.130
  • ARE BURNED.
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:44.020
  • THE WALLS HAVE BEEN TORN DOWN."
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:47.020
  • AND XERXES RESPONDS.
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:50.200
  • HE SAYS, "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:09:51.070 --> 00:09:54.070
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:09:54.070 --> 00:09:55.090
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:57.130
  • NOW THAT'S A SERMON
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:09:58.060
  • FOR ANOTHER DAY.
  • 00:09:58.060 --> 00:09:59.000
  • WHEN THE KING ASKS YOU,
  • 00:09:59.000 --> 00:10:00.210
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST,"
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:02.040
  • DON'T WASTE IT.
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:05.280
  • BUT NEHEMIAH LOOKS AT HIM
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:07.020
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:10:07.020 --> 00:10:07.220
  • "I NEED TWO LETTERS.
  • 00:10:07.220 --> 00:10:10.090
  • I NEED A LETTER THAT I CAN TAKE
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:11.240
  • WITH ME TO THE GOVERNORS
  • 00:10:11.240 --> 00:10:13.050
  • IN JUDEA SO THAT
  • 00:10:13.050 --> 00:10:14.100
  • WHEN I REBUILD THESE WALLS,
  • 00:10:14.100 --> 00:10:15.190
  • THEY KNOW I'M DOING SO
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:16.240
  • WITH YOUR BLESSING.
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:17.210
  • AND I NEED A LETTER
  • 00:10:17.210 --> 00:10:18.140
  • THAT I CAN TAKE TO ASAPH,
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:19.280
  • THE KEEPER OF THE FOREST,
  • 00:10:19.280 --> 00:10:21.040
  • SO THAT I CAN GET THE TIMBER
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:22.130
  • THAT'S NECESSARY TO REBUILD
  • 00:10:22.130 --> 00:10:23.210
  • THE GATES."
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:24.100
  • YOU SEE NEHEMIAH KNEW
  • 00:10:24.100 --> 00:10:26.010
  • WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE BEFORE
  • 00:10:26.010 --> 00:10:27.110
  • CONSTRUCTION COULD BEGIN.
  • 00:10:27.110 --> 00:10:28.220
  • HE HAD TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:32.110
  • SO HERE'S WHAT I'M SAYING
  • 00:10:32.110 --> 00:10:33.080
  • TO SINGLE PEOPLE;
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:34.130
  • BEFORE YOU MOVE IN AND START
  • 00:10:34.130 --> 00:10:36.100
  • PLAYING HOUSE WITH SOMEBODY,
  • 00:10:36.100 --> 00:10:38.020
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:41.090
  • YOU HAVE GOT TO GET PERMISSION
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:43.090
  • FROM GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:10:43.090 --> 00:10:44.130
  • TO BE MARRIED.
  • 00:10:44.130 --> 00:10:45.210
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:48.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:49.050
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:10:49.050 --> 00:10:50.210
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:51.190
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:53.000
  • WHO BUILD IT."
  • 00:10:53.000 --> 00:10:53.170
  • WHEN IT COMES TO MARRIAGE,
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:54.250
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT
  • 00:10:54.250 --> 00:10:56.130
  • BEFORE YOU START BUILDING.
  • 00:10:56.130 --> 00:10:58.000
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS
  • 00:10:58.000 --> 00:10:58.260
  • THAT WE HAVE IN AMERICA TODAY
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:00.160
  • IS THAT 49% OF COUPLES
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:02.170
  • IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:11:02.170 --> 00:11:03.220
  • ARE LIVING TOGETHER
  • 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:04.220
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:11:04.220 --> 00:11:07.180
  • WHEN THOSE COUPLES GET MARRIED,
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:09.030
  • ONLY 60% OF THEM STAY TOGETHER
  • 00:11:09.030 --> 00:11:11.080
  • FOR THREE YEARS.
  • 00:11:11.080 --> 00:11:12.070
  • WHY?
  • 00:11:12.070 --> 00:11:13.220
  • BECAUSE WHEN THEY'RE LIVING
  • 00:11:13.220 --> 00:11:14.170
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:14.170 --> 00:11:15.080
  • IT'S SELFISH LOVE;
  • 00:11:15.080 --> 00:11:16.170
  • AND WHEN THEY'RE MARRIED
  • 00:11:16.170 --> 00:11:17.110
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:17.110 --> 00:11:17.280
  • IT'S SACRIFICIAL LOVE.
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:20.100
  • AND YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH
  • 00:11:20.100 --> 00:11:21.250
  • OF THOSE IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:24.100
  • BIBLICAL MARRIAGE IS BUILT
  • 00:11:24.100 --> 00:11:25.150
  • UPON SACRIFICE,
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:26.270
  • LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:11:26.270 --> 00:11:28.110
  • SELFISH RELATIONSHIPS ARE BUILT
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:30.200
  • ON WHAT YOU DO PLEASES ME.
  • 00:11:30.200 --> 00:11:33.130
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE HAS
  • 00:11:33.130 --> 00:11:34.090
  • TO SAY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:34.280
  • EXODUS 20:14: "THOU SHALT NOT
  • 00:11:34.280 --> 00:11:37.170
  • COMMIT ADULTERY."
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:39.110
  • THAT'S STILL IN THE BOOK,
  • 00:11:39.110 --> 00:11:40.220
  • FOLKS.
  • 00:11:40.220 --> 00:11:42.110
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:11:42.110 --> 00:11:43.230
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:11:43.230 --> 00:11:44.230
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:11:44.230 --> 00:11:46.130
  • WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:47.120
  • BECAUSE A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:48.120
  • WHO ARE LIVING TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:48.120 --> 00:11:49.050
  • SAY, "WHAT'S THE POINT
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:50.050
  • OF GETTING MARRIED?"
  • 00:11:50.050 --> 00:11:51.050
  • GOD SAID,
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:52.020
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE.
  • 00:11:52.100 --> 00:11:55.100
  • AMONG ALL,
  • 00:11:55.100 --> 00:11:56.040
  • THE BED OF MARRIAGE
  • 00:11:56.040 --> 00:11:56.290
  • IS UNDEFILED."
  • 00:11:56.290 --> 00:11:58.050
  • BUT HERE'S HOW THE REST
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:11:58.250
  • OF THE VERSE READS.
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:11:59.220
  • "FORNICATORS AND ADULTERERS,
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:01.140
  • GOD WILL JUDGE."
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:04.190
  • THOSE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:12:04.190 --> 00:12:05.160
  • ENGAGED IN SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:12:05.160 --> 00:12:07.090
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:08.080
  • THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT
  • 00:12:08.080 --> 00:12:09.270
  • THE ONLY RELATIONSHIP THAT GOD
  • 00:12:09.270 --> 00:12:11.150
  • ENDORSES FOR TWO PEOPLE
  • 00:12:11.150 --> 00:12:12.250
  • TO SHARE A BEDROOM IN IS
  • 00:12:12.250 --> 00:12:14.130
  • THE RELATIONSHIP OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:12:14.130 --> 00:12:16.030
  • THAT'S HIS POLICY.
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:17.150
  • AND BEFORE YOU BEGIN
  • 00:12:17.150 --> 00:12:18.180
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:12:18.180 --> 00:12:19.180
  • YOU NEED HIS PERMISSION.
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:21.280

  • THE GIRL'S SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.
  • 00:13:36.240 --> 00:13:39.230
  • DON'T SHOW UP AT HIS HOUSE

  • THE FIRST TIME AS HER FIANCE.

  • WHY?
  • 00:13:50.280 --> 00:13:51.190
  • BECAUSE HE IS THE REASON

  • SHE'S HERE.
  • 00:13:52.270 --> 00:13:54.250

  • AND I'M SAYING THIS,

  • STOP IT.

  • STOP IT.
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:39.070

  • ACCORDING TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:14:45.130 --> 00:14:46.180

  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:48.010
  • ITSELF TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE.
  • 00:14:48.010 --> 00:14:50.180
  • [Amen!]

  • PRINCIPLE TWO,

  • JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:14:53.240 --> 00:14:54.250
  • PERMISSION DOESN'T MEAN YOU GET
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:14:56.120
  • A DAY OFF.
  • 00:14:56.120 --> 00:14:58.190
  • NEHEMIAH GOT PERMISSION
  • 00:14:58.190 --> 00:15:00.070
  • TO GO CUT THE TIMBER.
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:01.120
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:15:01.120 --> 00:15:02.070
  • THAT MEANS HE HAD TO GO
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:03.040
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:15:03.040 --> 00:15:04.090

  • 00:15:08.070 --> 00:15:09.090
  • HE DIDN'T GET THE PERMITS
  • 00:15:09.090 --> 00:15:10.170
  • AND OUTSOURCE THE WORK.
  • 00:15:10.170 --> 00:15:11.280
  • HE GOT THE PERMITS AND HE WENT
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:13.130
  • TO GO DO THE WORK.
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:14.280
  • THE SECOND PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:15:14.280 --> 00:15:16.010
  • NEHEMIAH TEACHES MARRIED PEOPLE
  • 00:15:16.010 --> 00:15:18.070
  • IS THAT ONCE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:20.010
  • GO TO WORK.
  • 00:15:20.010 --> 00:15:21.250
  • WHEN YOU SAY THAT I'M DATING
  • 00:15:21.250 --> 00:15:23.190
  • AND THIS IS A PREVIEW OF THINGS
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:25.080
  • TO COME,
  • 00:15:25.080 --> 00:15:26.050
  • MAKE SURE THAT WHAT COMES NEXT
  • 00:15:26.050 --> 00:15:27.220
  • IS BETTER THAN WHAT WAS.
  • 00:15:27.220 --> 00:15:30.220
  • PEOPLE WORK LIKE CRAZY
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:32.130
  • AT BEING ROMANTIC.
  • 00:15:32.130 --> 00:15:33.170
  • AND THEN WHEN THEY GET MARRIED,
  • 00:15:33.170 --> 00:15:34.170
  • IT TURNS INTO,
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:35.130
  • "HE USED TO..."
  • 00:15:35.130 --> 00:15:37.090
  • "HE USED TO BRING ME FLOWERS."
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:38.190
  • "HE USED TO WRITE ME LETTERS."
  • 00:15:38.190 --> 00:15:40.020
  • "HE USED TO TELL ME
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:40.290
  • HE LOVED ME."
  • 00:15:40.290 --> 00:15:41.250
  • "HE USED TO PICK UP THE PHONE
  • 00:15:41.250 --> 00:15:43.040
  • AND CALL ME
  • 00:15:43.040 --> 00:15:44.000
  • JUST TO HEAR ME BREATHE."
  • 00:15:44.000 --> 00:15:46.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:46.270 --> 00:15:49.270
  • (BREATHING DEEPLY)
  • 00:15:51.170 --> 00:15:54.170
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:54.170 --> 00:15:56.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:16:00.070
  • NOW WHEN THE PHONE RINGS,
  • 00:16:00.070 --> 00:16:01.080
  • HE PICKS IT UP AND SAYS,
  • 00:16:01.080 --> 00:16:01.280
  • "WHAT DO YOU WANT?"
  • 00:16:01.280 --> 00:16:03.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:03.180 --> 00:16:05.150
  • THE THIRD PRINCIPLE
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:06.230
  • THAT NEHEMIAH TEACHES US
  • 00:16:06.230 --> 00:16:08.030
  • IS THAT WHENEVER YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:16:08.030 --> 00:16:09.270
  • THAT THERE'S DAMAGE,
  • 00:16:09.270 --> 00:16:11.010
  • EVALUATE YOUR PROBLEM
  • 00:16:11.010 --> 00:16:12.150
  • PRIVATELY.
  • 00:16:12.150 --> 00:16:14.150
  • YOU SEE THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:16:14.150 --> 00:16:15.130
  • THAT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:16:15.130 --> 00:16:16.040
  • IN CHAPTER 2:11,
  • 00:16:16.040 --> 00:16:18.100
  • HE WENT TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:16:18.100 --> 00:16:19.130
  • WITH THE PERMITS.
  • 00:16:19.130 --> 00:16:21.280
  • AND BEFORE HE TOLD ANYBODY
  • 00:16:21.280 --> 00:16:23.280
  • WHY HE WAS IN TOWN,
  • 00:16:23.280 --> 00:16:25.100
  • BEFORE HE SHOWED ANYBODY
  • 00:16:25.100 --> 00:16:26.230
  • THE PERMITS,
  • 00:16:26.230 --> 00:16:27.170
  • BEFORE HE MADE IT KNOWN
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:28.210
  • THAT HIS PURPOSE WAS TO REBUILD
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:30.030
  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:16:30.030 --> 00:16:30.250
  • FOR THREE DAYS,
  • 00:16:30.250 --> 00:16:32.030
  • HE RODE AROUND AND HE SURVEYED
  • 00:16:32.030 --> 00:16:34.010
  • THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:34.190
  • BUT HE DIDN'T SPEAK TO A SOUL.
  • 00:16:34.190 --> 00:16:37.170
  • THERE'S A LESSON THERE.
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:39.200
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:16:39.200 --> 00:16:41.060
  • THERE WILL BE SEASONS WHERE
  • 00:16:41.060 --> 00:16:42.240
  • THINGS WILL GET DIFFICULT,
  • 00:16:42.240 --> 00:16:43.280
  • AND DAMAGE AND HARM WILL COME
  • 00:16:43.280 --> 00:16:45.170
  • TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:16:45.170 --> 00:16:46.180
  • IT'S JUST PART OF LIFE.
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:47.160
  • IT'S PART OF HUMANITY.
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:48.240
  • TWO IMPERFECT PEOPLE
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:50.010
  • BEING MARRIED TO EACH OTHER,
  • 00:16:50.010 --> 00:16:51.090
  • SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:16:51.090 --> 00:16:52.030
  • THEY'RE GOING TO HURT
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:52.180
  • ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:54.110
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:16:54.110 --> 00:16:56.040
  • SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE PRIVATELY.
  • 00:16:56.120 --> 00:16:59.120
  • DON'T TELL EVERY THIRD PERSON,
  • 00:16:59.120 --> 00:17:01.120
  • "WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM."
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:03.070
  • DON'T UPDATE YOUR FACEBOOK
  • 00:17:03.070 --> 00:17:04.210
  • STATUS WITH
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:05.100
  • "HAVE A MARRIAGE QUESTION."
  • 00:17:05.100 --> 00:17:07.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:09.280
  • DON'T WALK INTO CHURCH
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:10.290
  • AND LOOK AT EVERY OTHER PERSON,
  • 00:17:10.290 --> 00:17:12.000
  • AND GO,
  • 00:17:12.000 --> 00:17:12.230
  • "UNSPOKEN; JUST PRAY."
  • 00:17:12.230 --> 00:17:15.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:15.220 --> 00:17:17.060
  • NO!
  • 00:17:17.060 --> 00:17:19.000
  • SURVEY THAT PROBLEM ALL BY
  • 00:17:19.000 --> 00:17:20.290
  • YOURSELF AND CONSIDER WHAT ROLE
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:24.040
  • AND RESPONSIBILITY YOU HAVE
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:26.010
  • IN SOLVING IT.
  • 00:17:26.010 --> 00:17:28.010
  • DON'T ASK EVERYBODY ELSE
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:29.170
  • TO HELP YOU SOLVE THAT PROBLEM.
  • 00:17:29.170 --> 00:17:31.040
  • AND THEN WHENEVER YOU GO ABOUT
  • 00:17:31.040 --> 00:17:32.220
  • SOLVING THE PROBLEM,
  • 00:17:32.220 --> 00:17:33.220
  • SOLVE IT ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:35.290
  • CONSIDER THE STRATEGY AND
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:37.140
  • THE WISDOM OF NEHEMIAH'S PLAN.
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:39.040
  • HE DIDN'T COME TO TOWN AND TELL
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:40.290
  • ANYBODY WHY HE WAS IN TOWN.
  • 00:17:40.290 --> 00:17:42.160
  • WHY?
  • 00:17:42.160 --> 00:17:43.040
  • BECAUSE AS SOON AS HE WOULD
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:44.080
  • HAVE,
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:44.210
  • EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE HAD THEIR
  • 00:17:44.210 --> 00:17:45.270
  • OPINION ABOUT HOW TO BEST
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:47.150
  • PROCEED.
  • 00:17:47.150 --> 00:17:48.180
  • THE JEWS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:17:48.180 --> 00:17:49.160
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:50.100
  • THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FIRST."
  • 00:17:50.100 --> 00:17:51.160
  • THE PRIESTS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:52.190
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THE TEMPLE
  • 00:17:52.190 --> 00:17:53.240
  • FIRST."
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:54.150
  • THE NOBLES WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:55.180
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THIS AREA
  • 00:17:55.180 --> 00:17:57.110
  • OF TOWN FIRST."
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:17:58.110
  • BUT RATHER THAN LET
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:17:59.050
  • EVERYBODY'S OPINION
  • 00:17:59.050 --> 00:18:00.030
  • GET INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS,
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:01.200
  • HE SURVEYED THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:18:01.200 --> 00:18:03.020
  • HE MADE A PLAN,
  • 00:18:03.020 --> 00:18:04.070
  • AND THEN HE WENT TO WORK
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:05.060
  • ON HOW TO GET THAT PLAN FIXED.
  • 00:18:05.060 --> 00:18:07.140
  • TAKE A JOURNEY OF
  • 00:18:07.140 --> 00:18:08.090
  • SELF-EXAMINATION AND UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:08.090 --> 00:18:10.110
  • WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED.
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:11.250
  • ASK THE LORD TO LEAD
  • 00:18:11.250 --> 00:18:13.030
  • AND GUIDE YOU.
  • 00:18:13.030 --> 00:18:14.040
  • AND I ASSURE YOU,
  • 00:18:14.040 --> 00:18:15.010
  • HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS WORD
  • 00:18:15.010 --> 00:18:16.240
  • WILL HELP YOU FIX A LOT MORE
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:18.040
  • PROBLEMS THAN THE UNQUALIFIED
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:20.070
  • EXPERTS AROUND YOU.
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:23.060
  • WHEN YOU, IN YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:18:23.060 --> 00:18:24.080
  • WALK AWAY
  • 00:18:24.080 --> 00:18:25.070
  • FROM GOD'S PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:18:25.070 --> 00:18:26.230
  • SUDDENLY OUTSIDE ATTACKS
  • 00:18:26.230 --> 00:18:28.190
  • NOW HAVE VALUE.
  • 00:18:28.190 --> 00:18:30.250
  • WHEN YOU SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE,
  • 00:18:30.250 --> 00:18:32.080
  • MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE WALKING
  • 00:18:32.080 --> 00:18:34.130
  • IN THE RIGHT PATH
  • 00:18:34.130 --> 00:18:36.020
  • OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:37.180
  • THE FOURTH PRINCIPLE
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:38.170
  • THAT NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:39.210
  • IS WORK WITH THOSE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:43.160
  • NEHEMIAH SAW WHAT NEEDED
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:44.220
  • TO BE DONE.
  • 00:18:44.220 --> 00:18:45.100
  • AND HE GATHERED THE PEOPLE
  • 00:18:45.100 --> 00:18:46.200
  • AND HE TOLD THEM THE VERSES
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:48.010
  • WE READ.
  • 00:18:48.010 --> 00:18:49.070
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:49.240
  • "YOU SEE THE DISTRESS WE'RE IN,
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:50.220
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE.
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:53.240
  • LET US BUILD THE WALL SO THAT
  • 00:18:53.240 --> 00:18:55.100
  • WE'LL NO LONGER BE A REPROACH."
  • 00:18:55.100 --> 00:18:57.220
  • WHEN IT COMES TO REBUILDING
  • 00:18:57.220 --> 00:18:58.290
  • THE WALLS OF YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:19:00.160
  • YOU NEED TO WORK WITH THOSE
  • 00:19:00.160 --> 00:19:01.250
  • YOU TRUST.
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:03.250
  • WHO ARE THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST?
  • 00:19:03.250 --> 00:19:06.150
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:07.200
  • PEOPLE WHO TALK TO GOD
  • 00:19:07.200 --> 00:19:08.290
  • MORE THAN THEY TALK TO OTHERS.
  • 00:19:09.060 --> 00:19:12.060
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:19:12.060 --> 00:19:13.200
  • THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:14.210
  • NO PERSONAL OPINION ABOUT HOW
  • 00:19:14.210 --> 00:19:16.200
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP SHOULD WORK;
  • 00:19:16.200 --> 00:19:18.010
  • THEY JUST WANT TO SEE IT
  • 00:19:18.010 --> 00:19:18.230
  • RESTORED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:22.100
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO
  • 00:19:22.100 --> 00:19:23.110
  • HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE THAN YOU.
  • 00:19:23.240 --> 00:19:26.240
  • DON'T ASK SOMEBODY,
  • 00:19:26.240 --> 00:19:28.030
  • WHO'S GETTING
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:28.210
  • THEIR THIRD DIVORCE,
  • 00:19:28.210 --> 00:19:29.160
  • HOW TO FIX YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:19:29.160 --> 00:19:31.150
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:31.150 --> 00:19:34.090
  • AND AS SILLY AS THAT SOUNDS,
  • 00:19:34.090 --> 00:19:35.160
  • THAT'S WHAT SOME PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:19:35.160 --> 00:19:37.230
  • PEOPLE IN THIS CONGREGATION,
  • 00:19:37.230 --> 00:19:38.260
  • WHO'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:19:38.260 --> 00:19:39.160
  • FOR DECADES,
  • 00:19:39.160 --> 00:19:40.130
  • NEED TO INVEST THEMSELVES
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:42.040
  • IN HELPING PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:42.270
  • WHO'VE ONLY BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:19:42.270 --> 00:19:43.180
  • A FEW DAYS,
  • 00:19:43.180 --> 00:19:44.160
  • HOW TO SURVIVE THROUGH
  • 00:19:44.160 --> 00:19:45.220
  • THOSE DECADES.
  • 00:19:45.220 --> 00:19:47.180
  • THEY'RE PEOPLE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:19:47.180 --> 00:19:50.000
  • THE LAST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:19:50.000 --> 00:19:50.270
  • NEHEMIAH SHARES WITH US IS THAT
  • 00:19:50.270 --> 00:19:52.190
  • HE KICKS THE OUTSIDERS OUT.
  • 00:19:53.170 --> 00:19:56.170
  • AS SOON AS HE BEGINS BUILDING,
  • 00:19:56.170 --> 00:19:58.160
  • IN VERSE 19,
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:19:59.170
  • HE HAS THREE ADVERSARIES,
  • 00:19:59.170 --> 00:20:01.160
  • SANBALLAT,
  • 00:20:01.160 --> 00:20:02.240
  • TOBIAH,
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:03.220
  • AND GESHEM.
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:05.160
  • THESE THREE INDIVIDUALS CAME
  • 00:20:05.160 --> 00:20:07.190
  • TO JERUSALEM AFTER THE WALLS
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:09.130
  • HAD BEEN TORN DOWN,
  • 00:20:09.130 --> 00:20:10.140
  • AFTER BABYLON HAD TAKEN OVER.
  • 00:20:10.140 --> 00:20:12.140
  • AND THEY BEGIN TO CREATE ALL
  • 00:20:12.140 --> 00:20:14.050
  • KINDS OF TROUBLE FOR NEHEMIAH.
  • 00:20:14.050 --> 00:20:16.010
  • THEY DON'T WANT THE WALLS
  • 00:20:16.010 --> 00:20:17.110
  • REBUILT.
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:17.290
  • AND THE FIRST THING
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:18.230
  • THAT NEHEMIAH TELLS THEM IS,
  • 00:20:18.230 --> 00:20:20.040
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:20:20.040 --> 00:20:21.260
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:20:21.260 --> 00:20:22.250
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:20:22.250 --> 00:20:23.200
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:20:23.200 --> 00:20:25.100
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:26.030
  • HE WAS LETTING HIS ENEMIES
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:27.190
  • KNOW,
  • 00:20:27.190 --> 00:20:28.020
  • IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER TO ME
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:29.180
  • WHAT YOU SAY,
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:30.190
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME
  • 00:20:30.190 --> 00:20:31.200
  • WHAT YOU DO.
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:32.220
  • WHAT YOU SAY AND WHAT YOU DO
  • 00:20:32.220 --> 00:20:34.090
  • HAS NO BEARING ON MY OUTCOME.
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:36.130
  • MY OUTCOME IS DETERMINED
  • 00:20:36.130 --> 00:20:38.030
  • BY THE GOD OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:20:38.030 --> 00:20:39.130
  • HE'S THE ONE WHO'S GOING
  • 00:20:39.130 --> 00:20:41.050
  • TO PROSPER ME.
  • 00:20:41.050 --> 00:20:42.190
  • AND THEN HE LET THESE OUTSIDERS
  • 00:20:42.190 --> 00:20:44.080
  • KNOW,
  • 00:20:44.080 --> 00:20:45.000
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE."
  • 00:20:45.000 --> 00:20:46.180
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:20:46.180 --> 00:20:47.120
  • IN NEHEMIAH 2:20,
  • 00:20:47.120 --> 00:20:49.130
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE
  • 00:20:49.130 --> 00:20:51.040
  • OR MEMORIAL IN JERUSALEM."
  • 00:20:51.100 --> 00:20:54.100
  • HE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:20:54.100 --> 00:20:55.000
  • THIS IS A COVENANT LAND.
  • 00:20:55.000 --> 00:20:57.120
  • THIS HAS BEEN GIVEN BY GOD
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:59.030
  • TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,
  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:01.000
  • AND THEIR GENERATIONS FOREVER.
  • 00:21:01.000 --> 00:21:02.200
  • I, NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:21:02.200 --> 00:21:03.270
  • AM A PART OF THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:21:03.270 --> 00:21:05.130
  • BUT YOU OUTSIDERS HAVE NO ROLE
  • 00:21:05.130 --> 00:21:07.170
  • IN THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:21:07.170 --> 00:21:08.130
  • SO YOU NEED TO LEAVE TOWN NOW.
  • 00:21:10.130 --> 00:21:13.130
  • THIS IS THE PURPOSE
  • 00:21:13.130 --> 00:21:15.010
  • OF REBUILDING THE BORDERS
  • 00:21:15.010 --> 00:21:16.120
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:21:16.120 --> 00:21:17.150
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:21:17.150 --> 00:21:18.260
  • OF MARRIAGES DESTROYED
  • 00:21:18.260 --> 00:21:20.120
  • BY OUTSIDERS.
  • 00:21:20.120 --> 00:21:21.240
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:23.020
  • OF FAMILIES RIPPED APART,
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:24.280
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE,
  • 00:21:24.280 --> 00:21:25.160
  • WHO HAD NO PART
  • 00:21:25.160 --> 00:21:26.150
  • IN THAT COVENANT,
  • 00:21:26.150 --> 00:21:27.180
  • CAME INTO THAT RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:21:27.180 --> 00:21:29.230
  • AND THEY SCATTERED IT
  • 00:21:29.230 --> 00:21:30.230
  • LIKE STRAW IN THE WIND.
  • 00:21:30.230 --> 00:21:32.010
  • YOU HAVE A BIBLICAL PLACE TO
  • 00:21:32.010 --> 00:21:34.100
  • TAKE A STAND AND LET THEM KNOW,
  • 00:21:34.100 --> 00:21:36.050
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:21:36.050 --> 00:21:37.100
  • OF THIS COVENANT,
  • 00:21:37.100 --> 00:21:38.070
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:21:38.070 --> 00:21:39.080
  • OF THIS RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:21:39.080 --> 00:21:40.150
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:21:40.150 --> 00:21:41.110
  • OF THIS FAMILY,
  • 00:21:41.110 --> 00:21:42.080
  • YOU NEED TO LEAVE TOWN NOW!
  • 00:21:43.200 --> 00:21:46.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:51.110
  • RIGHT AFTER NEHEMIAH BUILT
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:53.190
  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:21:53.190 --> 00:21:55.160
  • HE REHUNG THE GATES.
  • 00:21:55.160 --> 00:21:58.070
  • AND THERE'S A DISTINCTION
  • 00:21:58.070 --> 00:21:59.030
  • BETWEEN WALLS AND GATES.
  • 00:21:59.030 --> 00:22:00.120
  • THEY WORK TOGETHER BUT THEY
  • 00:22:00.120 --> 00:22:01.120
  • DON'T HAVE THE SAME PURPOSE.
  • 00:22:01.120 --> 00:22:03.200
  • YOU SEE WALLS
  • 00:22:03.200 --> 00:22:04.140
  • ARE FOR PROTECTION,
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:06.260
  • BUT GATES ARE FOR ACCESS.
  • 00:22:07.130 --> 00:22:10.130
  • AND NEHEMIAH KNEW THAT GATES
  • 00:22:10.130 --> 00:22:11.290
  • WERE NO GOOD IF THE WALLS
  • 00:22:11.290 --> 00:22:13.000
  • WERE BROKE DOWN.
  • 00:22:13.000 --> 00:22:14.210
  • SO HE REBUILT THE WALLS
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:15.240
  • TO PROTECT THE CITY.
  • 00:22:15.240 --> 00:22:16.280
  • AND THEN HE PUT UP GATES
  • 00:22:16.280 --> 00:22:18.060
  • SO THAT THE RIGHT THINGS COULD
  • 00:22:18.060 --> 00:22:19.270
  • COME IN AND THE WRONG THINGS
  • 00:22:19.270 --> 00:22:22.010
  • COULD GO OUT.
  • 00:22:22.010 --> 00:22:24.070
  • AND I WANT TO CLOSE
  • 00:22:24.070 --> 00:22:24.250
  • THIS SERVICE THIS WAY;
  • 00:22:24.250 --> 00:22:26.200
  • BY ASKING YOU IN YOUR ROLE

  • AS A HUSBAND,
  • 00:22:28.200 --> 00:22:29.130
  • BY ASKING YOU IN YOUR ROLE
  • 00:22:29.130 --> 00:22:30.270
  • AS A WIFE,
  • 00:22:30.270 --> 00:22:31.200
  • BUT ASKING YOU AS YOUR ROLE
  • 00:22:31.200 --> 00:22:33.080
  • AS A CHILD OF GOD;
  • 00:22:33.080 --> 00:22:34.170
  • TO ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO
  • 00:22:34.170 --> 00:22:36.060
  • SHOW YOU THE THINGS THAT NEED
  • 00:22:36.060 --> 00:22:37.240
  • TO GO OUT AND THE THINGS
  • 00:22:37.240 --> 00:22:39.240
  • THAT NEED TO COME IN.
  • 00:22:39.240 --> 00:22:42.030
  • FOR SOME OF YOU IN THIS PLACE
  • 00:22:42.030 --> 00:22:42.290
  • TODAY,
  • 00:22:42.290 --> 00:22:44.160
  • THE THINGS THAT NEED TO GO OUT
  • 00:22:44.160 --> 00:22:46.010
  • ARE THE BITTERNESS,
  • 00:22:46.010 --> 00:22:46.260
  • AND THE HURT,
  • 00:22:46.260 --> 00:22:47.090
  • AND THE PAIN OF YOUR PAST.
  • 00:22:47.090 --> 00:22:49.190
  • FOR SOME OF YOU
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:50.030
  • IN THIS PLACE TODAY,
  • 00:22:50.030 --> 00:22:51.060
  • IT'S A GRUDGE
  • 00:22:51.060 --> 00:22:52.040
  • THAT YOU'RE HOLDING ONTO;
  • 00:22:52.040 --> 00:22:53.150
  • THAT UNTIL YOU LET GO OF IT,
  • 00:22:53.150 --> 00:22:54.270
  • GOD CAN'T SEND IN PEACE,
  • 00:22:54.270 --> 00:22:56.170
  • AND GOD CAN'T SEND IN JOY,
  • 00:22:56.170 --> 00:22:58.050
  • AND GOD CAN'T SEND IN MERCY.
  • 00:22:58.240 --> 00:23:01.260
  • FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:03.080
  • IT'S BEHAVIORS,
  • 00:23:03.080 --> 00:23:04.010
  • AND IT'S HABITS,
  • 00:23:04.010 --> 00:23:04.260
  • AND IT'S PROBLEMS THAT YOU
  • 00:23:04.260 --> 00:23:06.130
  • JUST DON'T WANT TO ADDRESS.
  • 00:23:06.130 --> 00:23:07.160
  • YOU'RE IGNORING THEM,
  • 00:23:07.160 --> 00:23:08.170
  • HOPING THEY'LL GO AWAY.
  • 00:23:08.170 --> 00:23:10.020
  • YOU NEED TO OPEN UP THE GATES
  • 00:23:10.020 --> 00:23:11.150
  • AND GET THAT PROBLEM OUT --
