  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: THE REASON
  • 00:00:11.250 --> 00:00:14.250
  • THAT THE BIBLICAL BORDERS
  • 00:00:14.250 --> 00:00:15.120
  • OF MARRIAGE ARE BROKEN
  • 00:00:15.120 --> 00:00:16.160
  • IS BECAUSE INDIVIDUALS,
  • 00:00:16.160 --> 00:00:17.260
  • MEN AND WOMEN,
  • 00:00:17.260 --> 00:00:18.270
  • HAVE REFUSED TO TAKE
  • 00:00:18.270 --> 00:00:20.200
  • THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:00:20.200 --> 00:00:21.270
  • THAT IS UPON THEM TO MAINTAIN
  • 00:00:21.270 --> 00:00:24.090
  • A HEALTHY MARRIAGE.
  • 00:00:24.090 --> 00:00:25.110
  • IT'S NOT THAT WE DON'T KNOW
  • 00:00:25.110 --> 00:00:26.100
  • WHAT TO DO;
  • 00:00:26.100 --> 00:00:27.090
  • IT'S THAT WE'VE NOT WILLING TO
  • 00:00:27.090 --> 00:00:28.130
  • DO WHAT GOD'S ASKED US TO DO.
  • 00:00:28.130 --> 00:00:31.000
  • IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:32.090
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE BOOKS.
  • 00:00:32.090 --> 00:00:33.120
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE SEMINARS.
  • 00:00:33.120 --> 00:00:34.170
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE PODCASTS.
  • 00:00:34.170 --> 00:00:36.030
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE
  • 00:00:36.030 --> 00:00:36.220
  • SUNDAY SCHOOLS.
  • 00:00:36.220 --> 00:00:37.160
  • WE'VE GOT MARRIAGE GROUPS.
  • 00:00:37.160 --> 00:00:38.230
  • WE'VE GOT ALL OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:00:38.230 --> 00:00:40.060
  • TO SUPPORT MARRIAGE.
  • 00:00:40.060 --> 00:00:41.110
  • AND WHEN IT COMES TO HAVING
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:42.140
  • A HEALTHY MARRIAGE,
  • 00:00:42.140 --> 00:00:43.090
  • WE'RE JUST NOT WILLING TO DO
  • 00:00:43.090 --> 00:00:44.130
  • THE WORK.
  • 00:00:44.140 --> 00:00:47.140
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT ANYTHING
  • 00:00:47.140 --> 00:00:48.140
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE GOOD AT
  • 00:00:48.140 --> 00:00:49.160
  • IN LIFE REQUIRES EFFORT.
  • 00:00:49.160 --> 00:00:52.110
  • GOOD GOLFERS ARE GOOD GOLFERS.
  • 00:00:52.110 --> 00:00:54.020
  • WHY?
  • 00:00:54.020 --> 00:00:54.170
  • BECAUSE THEY WORK AT GOLF.
  • 00:00:54.170 --> 00:00:57.000
  • THEY DON'T HIT 30-FOOT PUTTS
  • 00:00:57.000 --> 00:00:58.100
  • ON ACCIDENT;
  • 00:00:58.100 --> 00:00:59.040
  • THEY PRACTICE THAT.
  • 00:00:59.040 --> 00:01:01.100
  • GOOD MUSICIANS ARE GOOD
  • 00:01:01.100 --> 00:01:02.120
  • MUSICIANS BECAUSE THEY PRACTICE
  • 00:01:02.120 --> 00:01:03.290
  • THEIR INSTRUMENT.
  • 00:01:03.290 --> 00:01:05.120
  • GOOD BUSINESSMEN ARE GOOD
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:06.160
  • BUSINESSMEN BECAUSE THEY WORK
  • 00:01:06.160 --> 00:01:07.270
  • AT BEING GOOD BUSINESSMEN.
  • 00:01:07.270 --> 00:01:09.210
  • GOOD HUSBANDS AND GOOD WIVES
  • 00:01:09.210 --> 00:01:11.150
  • DID NOT BECOME GOOD HUSBANDS
  • 00:01:11.150 --> 00:01:12.220
  • AND WIVES BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:01:12.220 --> 00:01:13.280
  • THE LUCKY ONES.
  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:14.260
  • THEY WORKED AT DOING WHAT WAS
  • 00:01:14.260 --> 00:01:16.290
  • REQUIRED IN ORDER TO BUILD
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:19.030
  • A GOOD FAMILY.
  • 00:01:19.030 --> 00:01:21.110
  • SO IN ORDER TO HELP US
  • 00:01:21.110 --> 00:01:22.120
  • UNDERSTAND THE BROKEN BORDERS
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:23.270
  • OF MARRIAGE AND WHAT WE NEED
  • 00:01:23.270 --> 00:01:25.010
  • TO DO,
  • 00:01:25.010 --> 00:01:25.190
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:26.240
  • THE SONG OF SOLOMON.
  • 00:01:26.240 --> 00:01:28.000
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO PSALMS
  • 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:29.090
  • OR PROVERBS WHERE ALL
  • 00:01:29.090 --> 00:01:30.130
  • OF THE LOVE VERSES ARE FOUND.
  • 00:01:30.130 --> 00:01:32.080
  • I'M GOING TO LOOK AT THE LIFE
  • 00:01:32.080 --> 00:01:33.240
  • OF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:34.160
  • BECAUSE HE WAS A WALL BUILDER.
  • 00:01:34.240 --> 00:01:37.240
  • AND I WANT YOU TO SEE
  • 00:01:37.240 --> 00:01:38.220
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT HE USED
  • 00:01:38.220 --> 00:01:40.150
  • IN HIS CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:01:40.150 --> 00:01:42.040
  • AND ALLOW THEM TO BLESS YOU
  • 00:01:42.040 --> 00:01:44.220
  • IN YOUR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:46.150
  • WHEN IT COMES TO BUILDING
  • 00:01:46.150 --> 00:01:47.270
  • A GOOD FAMILY,
  • 00:01:47.270 --> 00:01:49.190
  • BECAUSE THE BORDERS
  • 00:01:49.190 --> 00:01:50.180
  • OF THE FAMILY IN THIS NATION
  • 00:01:50.180 --> 00:01:52.190
  • ARE BROKEN.
  • 00:01:52.190 --> 00:01:54.090
  • AND BY GOD'S GRACE,
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:55.110
  • BY THE TIME THIS SERVICE
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:56.080
  • IS OVER,
  • 00:01:56.080 --> 00:01:56.220
  • WE WILL ALL UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR
  • 00:01:56.220 --> 00:01:58.160
  • RESPONSIBILITY IS TO SEE THEM
  • 00:01:58.160 --> 00:02:00.200
  • REBUILT IN AMERICA TODAY.
  • 00:02:00.200 --> 00:02:03.190
  • LET'S READ NEHEMIAH 2:17.
  • 00:02:03.270 --> 00:02:06.270
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:02:06.270 --> 00:02:07.200
  • [Amen!]
  • 00:02:07.200 --> 00:02:08.180
  • "THEN I SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:11.030
  • 'YOU SEE THE DISTRESS
  • 00:02:11.030 --> 00:02:13.020
  • THAT WE ARE IN,
  • 00:02:13.020 --> 00:02:14.070
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE
  • 00:02:14.070 --> 00:02:16.000
  • AND ITS GATES ARE BURDENED
  • 00:02:16.000 --> 00:02:17.020
  • WITH FIRE.
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:18.100
  • COME LET US BUILD THE WALL
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:20.050
  • OF JERUSALEM;
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:21.070
  • THAT WE MAY NO LONGER BE
  • 00:02:21.070 --> 00:02:23.020
  • A REPROACH.'
  • 00:02:23.020 --> 00:02:24.150
  • AND I TOLD THEM OF THE HAND
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:26.110
  • OF GOD,
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:26.280
  • WHICH HAD BEEN GOOD UPON ME,
  • 00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:28.210
  • AND ALSO OF THE KING'S WORDS
  • 00:02:28.210 --> 00:02:30.150
  • THAT HE HAD SPOKEN TO ME.
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:32.170
  • SO THEY SAID,
  • 00:02:32.170 --> 00:02:33.140
  • 'LET US RISE UP AND BUILD.'
  • 00:02:33.140 --> 00:02:36.120
  • AND THEN THEY SET THEIR HANDS
  • 00:02:36.120 --> 00:02:38.140
  • TO DO THIS GOOD WORK."
  • 00:02:38.240 --> 00:02:41.240
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:43.000
  • LET YOUR WORD COME ALIVE IN US
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:44.250
  • TODAY;
  • 00:02:44.250 --> 00:02:46.060
  • THAT WE,
  • 00:02:46.060 --> 00:02:46.240
  • LIKE THE PEOPLE IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:02:46.240 --> 00:02:48.050
  • IN NEHEMIAH'S DAY,
  • 00:02:48.050 --> 00:02:50.080
  • WOULD SET OUR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:02:50.080 --> 00:02:51.250
  • THE GOOD WORK OF BUILDING
  • 00:02:51.250 --> 00:02:53.100
  • GODLY FAMILIES.
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:55.100
  • LET THE POWER
  • 00:02:55.100 --> 00:02:56.030
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:57.030
  • CARRY THIS WORD PAST
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:58.170
  • THIS SERMON AND THIS SANCTUARY
  • 00:02:58.170 --> 00:03:00.130
  • INTO OUR HEARTS AND LIVES;
  • 00:03:00.130 --> 00:03:02.190
  • THAT WE COULD CHANGE THE FUTURE
  • 00:03:02.190 --> 00:03:03.280
  • OF THIS NATION FOR THE CAUSE
  • 00:03:03.280 --> 00:03:05.290
  • OF CHRIST' AND RIGHTEOUSNESS'
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.030
  • SAKE.
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:08.030
  • IT'S IN JESUS' NAME
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:08.210
  • THAT WE PRAY AND ASK.
  • 00:03:08.210 --> 00:03:09.160
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:11.110
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:03:11.110 --> 00:03:12.100
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:03:12.100 --> 00:03:13.040
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:03:13.270 --> 00:03:16.270
  • I LIKE WHAT NEHEMIAH 2:18 SAYS.
  • 00:03:16.270 --> 00:03:19.240
  • IT SAYS,
  • 00:03:19.240 --> 00:03:20.080
  • "THEY SET THEIR HANDS TO DO
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:22.270
  • GOOD WORK."
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:25.170
  • "GOOD WORK."
  • 00:03:25.170 --> 00:03:27.140
  • NOTICE THAT THERE'S
  • 00:03:27.140 --> 00:03:28.040
  • A DISTINCTION THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:03:28.040 --> 00:03:29.140
  • MAKES ABOUT THE WORK
  • 00:03:29.140 --> 00:03:30.130
  • THAT'S BEING DONE.
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:31.170
  • IT'S NOT JUST ANY WORK;
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.100
  • IT'S GOOD WORK.
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:35.010
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:35.190
  • THAT I BELIEVE IS IMPORTANT,
  • 00:03:35.190 --> 00:03:36.270
  • BEFORE WE CAN EVEN BEGIN TO
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:38.240
  • EXPECT MARRIAGES TO GET BETTER,
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:41.010
  • IS THAT WE HAVE GOT TO MAKE
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:42.090
  • A DECISION THAT WE ARE GOING
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:43.230
  • TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:47.040
  • BECAUSE WHETHER YOU KNOW IT
  • 00:03:47.040 --> 00:03:47.260
  • OR NOT,
  • 00:03:47.260 --> 00:03:48.120
  • WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:03:48.120 --> 00:03:49.160
  • RIGHT NOW EACH AND EVERY ONE
  • 00:03:49.160 --> 00:03:50.290
  • OF US ARE WORKING ON
  • 00:03:50.290 --> 00:03:52.220
  • OUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:03:52.220 --> 00:03:53.260
  • YOU SAY, "WELL, I'M SINGLE."
  • 00:03:53.260 --> 00:03:55.030
  • DON'T WORRY;
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:55.190
  • YOU'RE STILL WORKING ON
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:56.190
  • YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:59.060
  • YOU'RE EITHER DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:00.210
  • GETTING READY TO BE
  • 00:04:00.210 --> 00:04:01.170
  • A GOOD SPOUSE;
  • 00:04:01.170 --> 00:04:02.120
  • OR YOU'RE DOING BAD WORK,
  • 00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:03.220
  • GETTING READY TO BE A PROBLEM
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:05.050
  • FOR SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:08.080
  • SINGLE PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:04:08.080 --> 00:04:09.010
  • "I'M WAITING FOR MARRIAGE
  • 00:04:09.010 --> 00:04:09.290
  • TO COMPLETE ME."
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:11.120
  • BELIEVE ME,
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:12.090
  • JERRY MCGUIRE LIED.
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:15.050
  • (LAUGHTER & APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:15.050 --> 00:04:17.150
  • IF YOU ARE A BROKEN PERSON
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:19.080
  • BEFORE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:20.230
  • MARRIAGE IS NOT GOING TO FIX
  • 00:04:20.230 --> 00:04:22.060
  • YOUR BROKENNESS.
  • 00:04:22.060 --> 00:04:23.060
  • IT'S JUST GOING TO BREAK DOWN
  • 00:04:23.060 --> 00:04:24.120
  • WHAT'S ALREADY BROKE.
  • 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:26.040
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:26.040 --> 00:04:27.140
  • SO WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THIS
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:28.130
  • MESSAGE TODAY ABOUT MARRIAGE,
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:30.170
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:32.020
  • BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A RING
  • 00:04:32.020 --> 00:04:33.040
  • ON YOUR FINGER.
  • 00:04:33.040 --> 00:04:34.020
  • RECOGNIZE THAT THESE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:35.280
  • ARE REQUIRED OF ALL OF US.
  • 00:04:35.280 --> 00:04:38.130
  • SOME OF YOU SAY,
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:38.260
  • "WELL I'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:04:38.260 --> 00:04:39.180
  • 40 YEARS."
  • 00:04:39.180 --> 00:04:40.170
  • HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:41.120
  • YOU HAVE THE SECRET TO HELPING
  • 00:04:41.150 --> 00:04:44.150
  • OTHERS SUCCEED
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:46.000
  • IN THEIR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:48.010
  • DON'T TUNE ME OUT
  • 00:04:48.010 --> 00:04:49.130
  • BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU'VE
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:50.040
  • ALREADY GOT THIS THING FIXED.
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:51.270
  • YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE
  • 00:04:51.270 --> 00:04:53.150
  • WHO NEED YOUR HELP
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:54.120
  • GETTING THINGS FIXED.
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:56.180
  • SO MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE
  • 00:04:56.180 --> 00:04:57.220
  • TO THEM.
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:04:59.090
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:04:59.090 --> 00:05:00.220
  • THROUGH NEHEMIAH'S LIFE,
  • 00:05:00.220 --> 00:05:01.290
  • THE PRINCIPLES THAT GOD WANTS
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:03.140
  • US TO APPLY TO OUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:03.140 --> 00:05:05.080
  • BUT THE FIRST PRINCIPLE IS
  • 00:05:05.080 --> 00:05:06.250
  • WE HAVE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:05:07.140 --> 00:05:10.140
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:11.120
  • GOOD WORK.
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:13.170
  • BECAUSE IF WE DON'T DO
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:14.220
  • GOOD WORK,
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:15.100
  • WE'RE GOING TO TEAR DOWN
  • 00:05:15.100 --> 00:05:16.160
  • INSTEAD OF BUILD UP.
  • 00:05:16.160 --> 00:05:18.120
  • WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR WORDS,
  • 00:05:18.120 --> 00:05:19.260
  • NOT TO ENCOURAGE,
  • 00:05:19.260 --> 00:05:20.260
  • BUT TO CREATE BITTERNESS
  • 00:05:20.260 --> 00:05:22.110
  • AND STRIFE.
  • 00:05:22.110 --> 00:05:23.170
  • WE'RE GOING TO WEAKEN
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:24.210
  • RATHER THAN STRENGTHEN
  • 00:05:24.210 --> 00:05:26.040
  • THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT GOD
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:27.100
  • HAS GIVEN US.
  • 00:05:27.100 --> 00:05:28.280
  • WHEN WE COMMIT OURSELVES
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:30.010
  • TO DOING GOOD WORK,
  • 00:05:30.010 --> 00:05:31.130
  • WE GIVE OUR MARRIAGES
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:32.290
  • THE PRIORITY THAT THEY DESERVE.
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:35.230
  • THE NATIONAL HEALTH AND SCIENCE
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:36.240
  • CENTER DID A STUDY.
  • 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:38.010
  • AND IT SAID THAT 80%
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:39.170
  • OF MARRIED COUPLES TODAY
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:41.000
  • WILL NOT CELEBRATE
  • 00:05:41.000 --> 00:05:42.130
  • THEIR 20TH ANNIVERSARY.
  • 00:05:42.130 --> 00:05:45.090
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:47.090
  • WHEN WE GATHER AT A WEDDING,
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:48.220
  • DO WE TOAST THE BRIDE AND GROOM
  • 00:05:48.220 --> 00:05:50.250
  • BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:05:50.250 --> 00:05:51.210
  • FOR THE NEXT 19 YEARS,
  • 00:05:51.210 --> 00:05:53.070
  • THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:53.290
  • EACH OTHER MISERABLE?
  • 00:05:53.290 --> 00:05:55.220
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:56.260
  • NO.
  • 00:05:56.260 --> 00:05:58.200
  • WE TOAST THEIR POTENTIAL.
  • 00:05:58.200 --> 00:06:01.140
  • WE TOAST WHAT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:06:01.140 --> 00:06:02.290
  • WE SEE IN THEIR FUTURE.
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:04.170
  • WE TALK ABOUT THE GOOD THINGS
  • 00:06:04.170 --> 00:06:05.290
  • THAT ARE TO COME.
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:07.100
  • WE DON'T FLIP A COIN AND SAY,
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:08.180
  • "WHICH ONE WILL YOU BE?
  • 00:06:08.180 --> 00:06:09.220
  • DIVORCED OR TOGETHER?"
  • 00:06:09.220 --> 00:06:12.150
  • THE THING THAT REQUIRES
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:14.010
  • YOUR MARRIAGE TO CONTINUE IS
  • 00:06:14.010 --> 00:06:15.260
  • YOUR WILLINGNESS TO CONTINUE
  • 00:06:15.260 --> 00:06:17.160
  • TO DO GOOD WORKS.
  • 00:06:17.160 --> 00:06:18.180
  • WHEN PEOPLE STOP AND THEY SEE
  • 00:06:18.180 --> 00:06:19.290
  • ALL OF THE DAMAGE THAT'S BEEN
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.030
  • DONE IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:06:21.030 --> 00:06:22.180
  • RATHER THAN START TO REBUILD
  • 00:06:22.180 --> 00:06:24.060
  • THE BROKEN BARRIER
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:25.030
  • OF THEIR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:06:25.030 --> 00:06:26.010
  • THEY THINK IT'S JUST EASIER
  • 00:06:26.010 --> 00:06:27.040
  • TO START OVER WITH A BRAND NEW
  • 00:06:27.040 --> 00:06:28.140
  • CONSTRUCTION COMPANY.
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:31.150
  • BUT GUESS WHAT THEY FIND
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:32.090
  • WHEN THEY GET THERE?
  • 00:06:32.090 --> 00:06:33.180
  • MORE WORK.
  • 00:06:34.100 --> 00:06:37.100
  • WE'VE GOT TO DO GOOD WORK.
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:39.140
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.160
  • PRINCIPLES FOR DOING GOOD WORK.
  • 00:06:40.160 --> 00:06:42.160
  • AND THE FIRST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:06:42.160 --> 00:06:43.170
  • HE GIVES US GOES RIGHT BACK
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:45.000
  • TO TALKING TO SINGLE PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:46.160
  • AND THAT IS THIS;
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:47.130
  • BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE WORK,
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:48.230
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT.
  • 00:06:49.140 --> 00:06:52.140
  • THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:06:52.140 --> 00:06:55.080
  • NEHEMIAH IS THE CUPBEARER
  • 00:06:55.080 --> 00:06:57.110
  • FOR KING ARTAXERXES.
  • 00:06:57.110 --> 00:06:59.160
  • NOW THESE MIGHT SOUND LIKE
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:00.170
  • INSIGNIFICANT NAMES.
  • 00:07:00.170 --> 00:07:01.170
  • BUT IN THEIR DAY,
  • 00:07:01.170 --> 00:07:02.230
  • THEY WERE VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:07:02.230 --> 00:07:03.230
  • WHY?
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:04.060
  • BECAUSE KING ARTAXERXES WAS
  • 00:07:04.060 --> 00:07:06.010
  • THE RULER OF THE KNOWN WORLD.
  • 00:07:06.010 --> 00:07:07.190
  • HE WAS THE KING IN BABYLON.
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:09.020
  • AND BABYLON HAD CONQUERED
  • 00:07:09.020 --> 00:07:10.100
  • PRETTY MUCH ALL
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:10.290
  • OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD.
  • 00:07:10.290 --> 00:07:11.290
  • NEHEMIAH STOOD IN FRONT OF HIM
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.000
  • ON A DAILY BASIS
  • 00:07:14.000 --> 00:07:15.050
  • AS HIS CUPBEARER.
  • 00:07:15.050 --> 00:07:17.030
  • WHEN YOU'RE A CUPBEARER,
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:18.070
  • YOU HAVE GOT A PRETTY PATHETIC
  • 00:07:18.070 --> 00:07:19.290
  • EXISTENCE.
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:21.190
  • AND THE REASON YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:07:21.190 --> 00:07:22.100
  • A PATHETIC EXISTENCE
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:23.150
  • IS BECAUSE YOUR JOB IS
  • 00:07:23.150 --> 00:07:24.240
  • TO BRING THE KING HIS WINE.
  • 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:26.150
  • AND YOUR PURPOSE IS NOT TO BE
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:28.050
  • THE SOMMELIER THAT TELLS HIM
  • 00:07:28.050 --> 00:07:29.230
  • ALL OF THE WONDERFUL FLAVORS
  • 00:07:29.230 --> 00:07:30.250
  • HE'S ABOUT TO ENJOY.
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:33.070
  • YOUR JOB IS TO SIP THE WINE
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:35.090
  • BEFORE THE KING DOES
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:36.150
  • SO THAT IF ANYBODY'S TRYING
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:37.200
  • TO POISON THE KING,
  • 00:07:37.200 --> 00:07:39.000
  • YOU DIE.
  • 00:07:39.000 --> 00:07:40.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:40.190 --> 00:07:42.190
  • SO NEHEMIAH KNOWS THAT
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:44.040
  • WITH HIS NEXT SIP,
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:45.120
  • HE COULD TAKE HIS FINAL TRIP.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:48.210
  • NOW I KNOW SOME OF YOU THINK
  • 00:07:48.210 --> 00:07:49.190
  • YOU'VE GOT STRESSFUL
  • 00:07:49.190 --> 00:07:50.200
  • WORK ENVIRONMENTS,
  • 00:07:50.200 --> 00:07:51.170
  • BUT THINK ABOUT HIS JOB.
  • 00:07:51.170 --> 00:07:53.230
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:53.230 --> 00:07:55.090
  • IF NEHEMIAH DIES,
  • 00:07:55.090 --> 00:07:56.160
  • THEY JUST DRAG HIM OUT AND THEY
  • 00:07:56.160 --> 00:07:58.030
  • BRING IN A BRAND NEW CUPBEARER.
  • 00:07:58.130 --> 00:08:01.150
  • NOT ONLY IS HIS JOB STRESSFUL,
  • 00:08:01.150 --> 00:08:03.000
  • BUT THE MEN HE'S WORKING FOR
  • 00:08:03.000 --> 00:08:04.110
  • IS TEMPERAMENTAL.
  • 00:08:04.110 --> 00:08:05.070
  • KING ARTAXERXES IS NOT KNOWN
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:07.050
  • FOR BEING A MILD-MANNERED
  • 00:08:07.050 --> 00:08:08.100
  • KIND OF GUY.
  • 00:08:08.100 --> 00:08:09.180
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:08:09.180 --> 00:08:10.100
  • ONE OF THE EDICTS THAT
  • 00:08:10.100 --> 00:08:11.130
  • ARTAXERXES WROTE IS RECORDED
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:13.100
  • IN THE BOOK OF EZRA.
  • 00:08:13.100 --> 00:08:14.180
  • AND IN THE BOOK OF EZRA,
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:15.210
  • HE WRITES IN 7:26,
  • 00:08:15.210 --> 00:08:18.140
  • "WHOEVER DOES NOT OBSERVE
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:19.190
  • THE LAW OF THE KING,
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:20.200
  • LET JUDGMENT BE BROUGHT UPON
  • 00:08:20.200 --> 00:08:22.040
  • HIM SPEEDILY,
  • 00:08:22.040 --> 00:08:23.080
  • WHETHER IT BE DEATH,
  • 00:08:23.080 --> 00:08:24.130
  • BANISHMENT,
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:25.010
  • CONFISCATION OF GOODS,
  • 00:08:25.010 --> 00:08:26.040
  • OR IMPRISONMENT."
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:27.000
  • HOW MANY OF YOU SEE A LITTLE
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:28.000
  • BIT OF TYPE A IN ARTAXERXES?
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:30.130
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:30.130 --> 00:08:32.200
  • HERE'S NEHEMIAH'S PROBLEM;
  • 00:08:32.200 --> 00:08:34.230
  • IN CHAPTER 1,
  • 00:08:34.230 --> 00:08:35.200
  • HIS BROTHER COMES
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:36.230
  • FROM JERUSALEM,
  • 00:08:36.230 --> 00:08:37.150
  • HIS HOMETOWN,
  • 00:08:37.150 --> 00:08:38.100
  • AND HE TELLS HIM,
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:39.060
  • "THE WALLS ARE BROKEN DOWN.
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:40.200
  • THE GATES ARE BURNED."
  • 00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:42.150
  • IT BREAKS NEHEMIAH'S HEART.
  • 00:08:42.150 --> 00:08:44.100
  • HE GOES BEFORE THE LORD
  • 00:08:44.100 --> 00:08:45.090
  • WITH FASTING AND PRAYER.
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:46.090
  • HE ASKS THE LORD TO DO
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:48.080
  • SOMETHING ON HIS BEHALF.
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:49.230
  • AND IF HIS OUTSIDE SITUATION
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:51.150
  • WASN'T BAD ENOUGH,
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:52.140
  • NEHEMIAH HAS GOT TO GO TO WORK.
  • 00:08:52.210 --> 00:08:55.210
  • SO HE GETS UP
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:08:56.080
  • AND HE GOES BEFORE THE KING.
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:57.210
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:08:58.050
  • "I TOOK THE KING HIS WINE
  • 00:08:58.050 --> 00:08:59.270
  • AND I HAD NEVER BEEN SAD
  • 00:08:59.270 --> 00:09:01.250
  • IN HIS PRESENCE BEFORE."
  • 00:09:01.250 --> 00:09:03.070
  • NOW THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
  • 00:09:03.070 --> 00:09:04.090
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:04.090 --> 00:09:04.280
  • BECAUSE IF NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:09:04.280 --> 00:09:06.040
  • THE CUPBEARER, LOOKS SAD,
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:07.230
  • ARTAXERXES WONDERS
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:09.030
  • WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE DRINK.
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:12.220
  • AND IF ARTAXERXES
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:13.220
  • SUSPECTS THAT NEHEMIAH
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:16.040
  • IS A PART OF THE CONSPIRACY,
  • 00:09:16.040 --> 00:09:17.240
  • HE'D JUST HAVE HIM KILLED.
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:20.020
  • SO GOING TO WORK WITH A BAD
  • 00:09:20.020 --> 00:09:21.040
  • ATTITUDE FOR ARTAXERXES
  • 00:09:21.040 --> 00:09:22.260
  • DOESN'T GET YOU TIME OFF;
  • 00:09:22.260 --> 00:09:24.160
  • IT GETS YOUR HEAD OFF.
  • 00:09:24.160 --> 00:09:26.160
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:26.160 --> 00:09:27.050
  • AND XERXES LOOKS AT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:09:27.050 --> 00:09:28.290
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:28.290 --> 00:09:29.130
  • "YOU HAVE NEVER HAD
  • 00:09:29.130 --> 00:09:30.090
  • A SAD COUNTENANCE BEFORE.
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:32.050
  • ARE YOU SICK
  • 00:09:32.050 --> 00:09:34.040
  • OR IS THIS SORROW OF HEART?"
  • 00:09:34.040 --> 00:09:36.180
  • AND NEHEMIAH SAYS,
  • 00:09:36.180 --> 00:09:37.080
  • "I BECAME DREADFULLY AFRAID."
  • 00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:40.270
  • AND NEHEMIAH GIVES HIM
  • 00:09:40.270 --> 00:09:41.230
  • THE ANSWER.
  • 00:09:41.230 --> 00:09:42.070
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:42.240
  • "THE GATES OF MY CITY
  • 00:09:42.240 --> 00:09:43.170
  • ARE BURNED.
  • 00:09:43.170 --> 00:09:44.060
  • THE WALLS HAVE BEEN TORN DOWN."
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:47.060
  • AND XERXES RESPONDS.
  • 00:09:47.240 --> 00:09:50.240
  • HE SAYS, "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:54.110
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:09:54.110 --> 00:09:55.130
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST?"
  • 00:09:55.130 --> 00:09:57.170
  • NOW THAT'S A SERMON
  • 00:09:57.170 --> 00:09:58.100
  • FOR ANOTHER DAY.
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:09:59.040
  • WHEN THE KING ASKS YOU,
  • 00:09:59.040 --> 00:10:00.250
  • "WHAT DO YOU REQUEST,"
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:02.080
  • DON'T WASTE IT.
  • 00:10:03.020 --> 00:10:06.020
  • BUT NEHEMIAH LOOKS AT HIM
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:07.060
  • AND HE SAYS,
  • 00:10:07.060 --> 00:10:07.260
  • "I NEED TWO LETTERS.
  • 00:10:07.260 --> 00:10:10.130
  • I NEED A LETTER THAT I CAN TAKE
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:11.280
  • WITH ME TO THE GOVERNORS
  • 00:10:11.280 --> 00:10:13.090
  • IN JUDEA SO THAT
  • 00:10:13.090 --> 00:10:14.140
  • WHEN I REBUILD THESE WALLS,
  • 00:10:14.140 --> 00:10:15.230
  • THEY KNOW I'M DOING SO
  • 00:10:15.230 --> 00:10:16.280
  • WITH YOUR BLESSING.
  • 00:10:16.280 --> 00:10:17.250
  • AND I NEED A LETTER
  • 00:10:17.250 --> 00:10:18.180
  • THAT I CAN TAKE TO ASAPH,
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:20.020
  • THE KEEPER OF THE FOREST,
  • 00:10:20.020 --> 00:10:21.080
  • SO THAT I CAN GET THE TIMBER
  • 00:10:21.080 --> 00:10:22.170
  • THAT'S NECESSARY TO REBUILD
  • 00:10:22.170 --> 00:10:23.250
  • THE GATES."
  • 00:10:23.250 --> 00:10:24.140
  • YOU SEE NEHEMIAH KNEW
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:26.050
  • WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE BEFORE
  • 00:10:26.050 --> 00:10:27.150
  • CONSTRUCTION COULD BEGIN.
  • 00:10:27.150 --> 00:10:28.260
  • HE HAD TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:10:29.150 --> 00:10:32.150
  • SO HERE'S WHAT I'M SAYING
  • 00:10:32.150 --> 00:10:33.120
  • TO SINGLE PEOPLE;
  • 00:10:33.120 --> 00:10:34.170
  • BEFORE YOU MOVE IN AND START
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:36.140
  • PLAYING HOUSE WITH SOMEBODY,
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:38.060
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET A PERMIT.
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:41.130
  • YOU HAVE GOT TO GET PERMISSION
  • 00:10:41.130 --> 00:10:43.130
  • FROM GOD ALMIGHTY
  • 00:10:43.130 --> 00:10:44.170
  • TO BE MARRIED.
  • 00:10:44.170 --> 00:10:45.250
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:48.100
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:10:48.100 --> 00:10:49.090
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:10:49.090 --> 00:10:50.250
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:10:50.250 --> 00:10:51.230
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:10:51.230 --> 00:10:53.040
  • WHO BUILD IT."
  • 00:10:53.040 --> 00:10:53.210
  • WHEN IT COMES TO MARRIAGE,
  • 00:10:53.210 --> 00:10:54.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A PERMIT
  • 00:10:54.290 --> 00:10:56.170
  • BEFORE YOU START BUILDING.
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:58.040
  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:10:59.000
  • THAT WE HAVE IN AMERICA TODAY
  • 00:10:59.000 --> 00:11:00.200
  • IS THAT 49% OF COUPLES
  • 00:11:00.200 --> 00:11:02.210
  • IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:03.260
  • ARE LIVING TOGETHER
  • 00:11:03.260 --> 00:11:04.260
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:07.220
  • WHEN THOSE COUPLES GET MARRIED,
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:09.070
  • ONLY 60% OF THEM STAY TOGETHER
  • 00:11:09.070 --> 00:11:11.120
  • FOR THREE YEARS.
  • 00:11:11.120 --> 00:11:12.110
  • WHY?
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:13.260
  • BECAUSE WHEN THEY'RE LIVING
  • 00:11:13.260 --> 00:11:14.210
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:14.210 --> 00:11:15.120
  • IT'S SELFISH LOVE;
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:16.210
  • AND WHEN THEY'RE MARRIED
  • 00:11:16.210 --> 00:11:17.150
  • TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:17.150 --> 00:11:18.020
  • IT'S SACRIFICIAL LOVE.
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:20.140
  • AND YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:21.290
  • OF THOSE IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
  • 00:11:21.290 --> 00:11:24.140
  • BIBLICAL MARRIAGE IS BUILT
  • 00:11:24.140 --> 00:11:25.190
  • UPON SACRIFICE,
  • 00:11:25.190 --> 00:11:27.010
  • LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:11:27.010 --> 00:11:28.150
  • SELFISH RELATIONSHIPS ARE BUILT
  • 00:11:28.150 --> 00:11:30.240
  • ON WHAT YOU DO PLEASES ME.
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:33.170
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE HAS
  • 00:11:33.170 --> 00:11:34.130
  • TO SAY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:11:34.130 --> 00:11:35.020
  • EXODUS 20:14: "THOU SHALT NOT
  • 00:11:35.020 --> 00:11:37.210
  • COMMIT ADULTERY."
  • 00:11:37.210 --> 00:11:39.150
  • THAT'S STILL IN THE BOOK,
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:40.260
  • FOLKS.
  • 00:11:40.260 --> 00:11:42.150
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:43.270
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:11:43.270 --> 00:11:44.270
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE."
  • 00:11:44.270 --> 00:11:46.170
  • WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:47.160
  • BECAUSE A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:11:47.160 --> 00:11:48.160
  • WHO ARE LIVING TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:48.160 --> 00:11:49.090
  • SAY, "WHAT'S THE POINT
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:50.090
  • OF GETTING MARRIED?"
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:51.090
  • GOD SAID,
  • 00:11:51.090 --> 00:11:52.060
  • "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE.
  • 00:11:52.140 --> 00:11:55.140
  • AMONG ALL,
  • 00:11:55.140 --> 00:11:56.080
  • THE BED OF MARRIAGE
  • 00:11:56.080 --> 00:11:57.030
  • IS UNDEFILED."
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.090
  • BUT HERE'S HOW THE REST
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:11:58.290
  • OF THE VERSE READS.
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:11:59.260
  • "FORNICATORS AND ADULTERERS,
  • 00:11:59.260 --> 00:12:01.180
  • GOD WILL JUDGE."
  • 00:12:01.230 --> 00:12:04.230
  • THOSE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:12:04.230 --> 00:12:05.200
  • ENGAGED IN SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:12:05.200 --> 00:12:07.130
  • OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:12:07.130 --> 00:12:08.120
  • THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT
  • 00:12:08.120 --> 00:12:10.010
  • THE ONLY RELATIONSHIP THAT GOD
  • 00:12:10.010 --> 00:12:11.190
  • ENDORSES FOR TWO PEOPLE
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:12.290
  • TO SHARE A BEDROOM IN IS
  • 00:12:12.290 --> 00:12:14.170
  • THE RELATIONSHIP OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:12:14.170 --> 00:12:16.070
  • THAT'S HIS POLICY.
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:17.190
  • AND BEFORE YOU BEGIN
  • 00:12:17.190 --> 00:12:18.220
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:12:18.220 --> 00:12:19.220
  • YOU NEED HIS PERMISSION.
  • 00:12:19.220 --> 00:12:22.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:12:22.020 --> 00:12:22.190

  • DON'T SHOW UP AT HIS HOUSE

  • THE FIRST TIME AS HER FIANCE.
  • 00:13:44.020 --> 00:13:47.020
  • YOU ASK THAT MAN FOR HER HAND.
  • 00:13:48.020 --> 00:13:51.020
  • WHY?
  • 00:13:51.020 --> 00:13:51.230
  • BECAUSE HE IS THE REASON
  • 00:13:51.230 --> 00:13:53.010
  • SHE'S HERE.
  • 00:13:53.010 --> 00:13:54.290
  • YOU DON'T GET HER WITHOUT HIM.
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:58.120
  • AND I'M SAYING THIS,
  • 00:13:58.120 --> 00:13:59.110
  • NOT ONLY AS A YOUNG MAN

  • WHO ASKED FOR MY WIFE'S HAND,
  • 00:14:00.190 --> 00:14:02.160

  • WHO HAS TWO DAUGHTERS,
  • 00:14:04.070 --> 00:14:05.070

  • THIS FOR A LONG TIME."
  • 00:14:32.250 --> 00:14:33.170
  • LET ME GIVE YOU SOME FREE
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:34.150
  • AND SIMPLE ADVICE;

  • STOP IT.
  • 00:14:35.200 --> 00:14:38.160
  • STOP IT.
  • 00:14:38.160 --> 00:14:39.110
  • YOUR BEHAVIOR DOES NOT CAUSE
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:40.260
  • GOD TO AMEND OR ALTER
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:42.250
  • HIS POLICIES.
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:43.290
  • YOU CORRECT YOURSELF
  • 00:14:43.290 --> 00:14:45.170
  • ACCORDING TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:14:45.170 --> 00:14:46.220
  • HIS WORD DOES NOT CORRECT
  • 00:14:46.220 --> 00:14:48.050
  • ITSELF TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE.
  • 00:14:48.050 --> 00:14:50.220
  • [Amen!]

  • PRINCIPLE TWO,
  • 00:14:51.180 --> 00:14:53.280
  • JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:14:53.280 --> 00:14:54.290
  • PERMISSION DOESN'T MEAN YOU GET
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:56.160
  • A DAY OFF.
  • 00:14:56.160 --> 00:14:58.230
  • NEHEMIAH GOT PERMISSION
  • 00:14:58.230 --> 00:15:00.110
  • TO GO CUT THE TIMBER.
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:01.160
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:15:01.160 --> 00:15:02.110
  • THAT MEANS HE HAD TO GO
  • 00:15:02.110 --> 00:15:03.080
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:15:03.080 --> 00:15:04.130
  • NEHEMIAH GOT PERMISSION
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:05.160
  • TO REBUILD THE WALLS.
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:06.190
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:15:06.190 --> 00:15:07.080
  • THAT MEANS HE HAD TO GO
  • 00:15:07.080 --> 00:15:08.110
  • TO WORK.
  • 00:15:08.110 --> 00:15:09.130
  • HE DIDN'T GET THE PERMITS
  • 00:15:09.130 --> 00:15:10.210
  • AND OUTSOURCE THE WORK.
  • 00:15:10.210 --> 00:15:12.020
  • HE GOT THE PERMITS AND HE WENT
  • 00:15:12.020 --> 00:15:13.170
  • TO GO DO THE WORK.
  • 00:15:13.170 --> 00:15:15.020
  • THE SECOND PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:16.050
  • NEHEMIAH TEACHES MARRIED PEOPLE
  • 00:15:16.050 --> 00:15:18.110
  • IS THAT ONCE YOU GET MARRIED,
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:20.050
  • GO TO WORK.
  • 00:15:20.050 --> 00:15:21.290
  • WHEN YOU SAY THAT I'M DATING
  • 00:15:21.290 --> 00:15:23.230
  • AND THIS IS A PREVIEW OF THINGS
  • 00:15:23.230 --> 00:15:25.120
  • TO COME,
  • 00:15:25.120 --> 00:15:26.090
  • MAKE SURE THAT WHAT COMES NEXT
  • 00:15:26.090 --> 00:15:27.260
  • IS BETTER THAN WHAT WAS.
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:30.260
  • PEOPLE WORK LIKE CRAZY
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:32.170
  • AT BEING ROMANTIC.
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:33.210
  • AND THEN WHEN THEY GET MARRIED,
  • 00:15:33.210 --> 00:15:34.210
  • IT TURNS INTO,
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:35.170
  • "HE USED TO..."
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:37.130
  • "HE USED TO BRING ME FLOWERS."
  • 00:15:37.130 --> 00:15:38.230
  • "HE USED TO WRITE ME LETTERS."
  • 00:15:38.230 --> 00:15:40.060

  • 00:15:40.060 --> 00:15:41.030
  • HE LOVED ME."
  • 00:15:41.030 --> 00:15:41.290
  • "HE USED TO PICK UP THE PHONE
  • 00:15:41.290 --> 00:15:43.080
  • AND CALL ME
  • 00:15:43.080 --> 00:15:44.040

  • NOW WHEN THE PHONE RINGS,
  • 00:16:00.110 --> 00:16:01.120
  • HE PICKS IT UP AND SAYS,
  • 00:16:01.120 --> 00:16:02.020
  • "WHAT DO YOU WANT?"
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:03.220

  • THAT NEHEMIAH TEACHES US
  • 00:16:06.270 --> 00:16:08.070
  • IS THAT WHENEVER YOU RECOGNIZE
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:10.010
  • THAT THERE'S DAMAGE,
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:11.050
  • EVALUATE YOUR PROBLEM
  • 00:16:11.050 --> 00:16:12.190
  • PRIVATELY.
  • 00:16:12.190 --> 00:16:14.190
  • YOU SEE THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:15.170
  • THAT NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:16:15.170 --> 00:16:16.080
  • IN CHAPTER 2:11,
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:18.140
  • HE WENT TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:16:18.140 --> 00:16:19.170
  • WITH THE PERMITS.
  • 00:16:19.170 --> 00:16:22.020
  • AND BEFORE HE TOLD ANYBODY
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:24.020
  • WHY HE WAS IN TOWN,
  • 00:16:24.020 --> 00:16:25.140
  • BEFORE HE SHOWED ANYBODY
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:26.270
  • THE PERMITS,
  • 00:16:26.270 --> 00:16:27.210
  • BEFORE HE MADE IT KNOWN
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:28.250
  • THAT HIS PURPOSE WAS TO REBUILD
  • 00:16:28.250 --> 00:16:30.070
  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:16:30.070 --> 00:16:30.290
  • FOR THREE DAYS,
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:32.070
  • HE RODE AROUND AND HE SURVEYED
  • 00:16:32.070 --> 00:16:34.050
  • THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:16:34.050 --> 00:16:34.230
  • BUT HE DIDN'T SPEAK TO A SOUL.
  • 00:16:34.230 --> 00:16:37.210
  • THERE'S A LESSON THERE.
  • 00:16:37.210 --> 00:16:39.240
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:16:39.240 --> 00:16:41.100
  • THERE WILL BE SEASONS WHERE
  • 00:16:41.100 --> 00:16:42.280
  • THINGS WILL GET DIFFICULT,
  • 00:16:42.280 --> 00:16:44.020
  • AND DAMAGE AND HARM WILL COME
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:45.210
  • TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:16:45.210 --> 00:16:46.220
  • IT'S JUST PART OF LIFE.
  • 00:16:46.220 --> 00:16:47.200
  • IT'S PART OF HUMANITY.
  • 00:16:47.200 --> 00:16:48.280
  • TWO IMPERFECT PEOPLE
  • 00:16:48.280 --> 00:16:50.050
  • BEING MARRIED TO EACH OTHER,
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:51.130
  • SOONER OR LATER,
  • 00:16:51.130 --> 00:16:52.070
  • THEY'RE GOING TO HURT
  • 00:16:52.070 --> 00:16:52.220
  • ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:16:52.220 --> 00:16:54.150
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:16:54.150 --> 00:16:56.080
  • SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE PRIVATELY.
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:59.160
  • DON'T TELL EVERY THIRD PERSON,
  • 00:16:59.160 --> 00:17:01.160
  • "WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM."
  • 00:17:01.160 --> 00:17:03.110
  • DON'T UPDATE YOUR FACEBOOK
  • 00:17:03.110 --> 00:17:04.250
  • STATUS WITH
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:05.140
  • "HAVE A MARRIAGE QUESTION."
  • 00:17:05.140 --> 00:17:07.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:07.100 --> 00:17:10.020
  • DON'T WALK INTO CHURCH
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:11.030
  • AND LOOK AT EVERY OTHER PERSON,
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:12.040
  • AND GO,
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:12.270
  • "UNSPOKEN; JUST PRAY."
  • 00:17:12.270 --> 00:17:15.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:15.260 --> 00:17:17.100
  • NO!
  • 00:17:17.100 --> 00:17:19.040
  • SURVEY THAT PROBLEM ALL BY
  • 00:17:19.040 --> 00:17:21.030
  • YOURSELF AND CONSIDER WHAT ROLE
  • 00:17:21.080 --> 00:17:24.080
  • AND RESPONSIBILITY YOU HAVE
  • 00:17:24.080 --> 00:17:26.050
  • IN SOLVING IT.
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:28.050
  • DON'T ASK EVERYBODY ELSE
  • 00:17:28.050 --> 00:17:29.210
  • TO HELP YOU SOLVE THAT PROBLEM.
  • 00:17:29.210 --> 00:17:31.080
  • AND THEN WHENEVER YOU GO ABOUT
  • 00:17:31.080 --> 00:17:32.260
  • SOLVING THE PROBLEM,
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:33.260
  • SOLVE IT ON PURPOSE.
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:36.030
  • CONSIDER THE STRATEGY AND
  • 00:17:36.030 --> 00:17:37.180
  • THE WISDOM OF NEHEMIAH'S PLAN.
  • 00:17:37.180 --> 00:17:39.080
  • HE DIDN'T COME TO TOWN AND TELL
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:41.030
  • ANYBODY WHY HE WAS IN TOWN.
  • 00:17:41.030 --> 00:17:42.200
  • WHY?
  • 00:17:42.200 --> 00:17:43.080
  • BECAUSE AS SOON AS HE WOULD
  • 00:17:43.080 --> 00:17:44.120
  • HAVE,
  • 00:17:44.120 --> 00:17:44.250
  • EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE HAD THEIR
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:46.010
  • OPINION ABOUT HOW TO BEST
  • 00:17:46.010 --> 00:17:47.190
  • PROCEED.
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:48.220
  • THE JEWS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:17:48.220 --> 00:17:49.200
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD
  • 00:17:49.200 --> 00:17:50.140
  • THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FIRST."
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.200
  • THE PRIESTS WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:52.230
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THE TEMPLE
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:53.280
  • FIRST."
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:54.190
  • THE NOBLES WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:17:54.190 --> 00:17:55.220
  • "WELL LET'S REBUILD THIS AREA
  • 00:17:55.220 --> 00:17:57.150
  • OF TOWN FIRST."
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:17:58.150
  • BUT RATHER THAN LET
  • 00:17:58.150 --> 00:17:59.090
  • EVERYBODY'S OPINION
  • 00:17:59.090 --> 00:18:00.070
  • GET INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS,
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:01.240
  • HE SURVEYED THE DAMAGE,
  • 00:18:01.240 --> 00:18:03.060
  • HE MADE A PLAN,
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:04.110
  • AND THEN HE WENT TO WORK
  • 00:18:04.110 --> 00:18:05.100
  • ON HOW TO GET THAT PLAN FIXED.
  • 00:18:05.100 --> 00:18:07.180
  • TAKE A JOURNEY OF
  • 00:18:07.180 --> 00:18:08.130
  • SELF-EXAMINATION AND UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:10.150
  • WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED.
  • 00:18:10.150 --> 00:18:11.290
  • ASK THE LORD TO LEAD
  • 00:18:11.290 --> 00:18:13.070
  • AND GUIDE YOU.
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:14.080
  • AND I ASSURE YOU,
  • 00:18:14.080 --> 00:18:15.050
  • HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS WORD
  • 00:18:15.050 --> 00:18:16.280
  • WILL HELP YOU FIX A LOT MORE
  • 00:18:16.280 --> 00:18:18.080
  • PROBLEMS THAN THE UNQUALIFIED
  • 00:18:18.080 --> 00:18:20.110
  • EXPERTS AROUND YOU.
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:23.100
  • WHEN YOU, IN YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.120
  • WALK AWAY
  • 00:18:24.120 --> 00:18:25.110
  • FROM GOD'S PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:18:25.110 --> 00:18:26.270
  • SUDDENLY OUTSIDE ATTACKS
  • 00:18:26.270 --> 00:18:28.230
  • NOW HAVE VALUE.
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:30.290
  • WHEN YOU SURVEY YOUR DAMAGE,
  • 00:18:30.290 --> 00:18:32.120
  • MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE WALKING
  • 00:18:32.120 --> 00:18:34.170
  • IN THE RIGHT PATH
  • 00:18:34.170 --> 00:18:36.060
  • OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:18:36.060 --> 00:18:37.220
  • THE FOURTH PRINCIPLE
  • 00:18:37.220 --> 00:18:38.210
  • THAT NEHEMIAH GIVES US
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:39.250
  • IS WORK WITH THOSE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:18:40.200 --> 00:18:43.200
  • NEHEMIAH SAW WHAT NEEDED
  • 00:18:43.200 --> 00:18:44.260
  • TO BE DONE.
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:45.140
  • AND HE GATHERED THE PEOPLE
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:46.240
  • AND HE TOLD THEM THE VERSES
  • 00:18:46.240 --> 00:18:48.050
  • WE READ.
  • 00:18:48.050 --> 00:18:49.110
  • HE SAYS,
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:49.280
  • "YOU SEE THE DISTRESS WE'RE IN,
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:50.260
  • HOW JERUSALEM LIES WASTE.
  • 00:18:50.280 --> 00:18:53.280
  • LET US BUILD THE WALL SO THAT
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:55.140
  • WE'LL NO LONGER BE A REPROACH."
  • 00:18:55.140 --> 00:18:57.260
  • WHEN IT COMES TO REBUILDING
  • 00:18:57.260 --> 00:18:59.030
  • THE WALLS OF YOUR MARRIAGE,
  • 00:18:59.030 --> 00:19:00.200
  • YOU NEED TO WORK WITH THOSE
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:01.290
  • YOU TRUST.
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:03.290
  • WHO ARE THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST?
  • 00:19:03.290 --> 00:19:06.190
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:19:06.190 --> 00:19:07.240
  • PEOPLE WHO TALK TO GOD
  • 00:19:07.240 --> 00:19:09.030
  • MORE THAN THEY TALK TO OTHERS.
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:12.100
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO BE
  • 00:19:12.100 --> 00:19:13.240
  • THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:14.250
  • NO PERSONAL OPINION ABOUT HOW
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:16.240
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIP SHOULD WORK;
  • 00:19:16.240 --> 00:19:18.050
  • THEY JUST WANT TO SEE IT
  • 00:19:18.050 --> 00:19:18.270
  • RESTORED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:22.140
  • THE PEOPLE YOU TRUST NEED TO
  • 00:19:22.140 --> 00:19:23.150
  • HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE THAN YOU.
  • 00:19:23.280 --> 00:19:26.280
  • DON'T ASK SOMEBODY,
  • 00:19:26.280 --> 00:19:28.070
  • WHO'S GETTING
  • 00:19:28.070 --> 00:19:28.250
  • THEIR THIRD DIVORCE,
  • 00:19:28.250 --> 00:19:29.200
  • HOW TO FIX YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:31.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:31.190 --> 00:19:34.130
  • AND AS SILLY AS THAT SOUNDS,
  • 00:19:34.130 --> 00:19:35.200
  • THAT'S WHAT SOME PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:19:35.200 --> 00:19:37.270
  • PEOPLE IN THIS CONGREGATION,
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:39.000
  • WHO'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:19:39.000 --> 00:19:39.200
  • FOR DECADES,
  • 00:19:39.200 --> 00:19:40.170
  • NEED TO INVEST THEMSELVES
  • 00:19:40.170 --> 00:19:42.080
  • IN HELPING PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:42.080 --> 00:19:43.010
  • WHO'VE ONLY BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:19:43.010 --> 00:19:43.220
  • A FEW DAYS,
  • 00:19:43.220 --> 00:19:44.200
  • HOW TO SURVIVE THROUGH
  • 00:19:44.200 --> 00:19:45.260
  • THOSE DECADES.
  • 00:19:45.260 --> 00:19:47.220
  • THEY'RE PEOPLE YOU TRUST.
  • 00:19:47.220 --> 00:19:50.040
  • THE LAST PRINCIPLE THAT
  • 00:19:50.040 --> 00:19:51.010
  • NEHEMIAH SHARES WITH US IS THAT
  • 00:19:51.010 --> 00:19:52.230
  • HE KICKS THE OUTSIDERS OUT.
  • 00:19:53.210 --> 00:19:56.210
  • AS SOON AS HE BEGINS BUILDING,
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:58.200
  • IN VERSE 19,
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:19:59.210
  • HE HAS THREE ADVERSARIES,
  • 00:19:59.210 --> 00:20:01.200
  • SANBALLAT,
  • 00:20:01.200 --> 00:20:02.280
  • TOBIAH,
  • 00:20:02.280 --> 00:20:03.260
  • AND GESHEM.
  • 00:20:03.260 --> 00:20:05.200
  • THESE THREE INDIVIDUALS CAME
  • 00:20:05.200 --> 00:20:07.230
  • TO JERUSALEM AFTER THE WALLS
  • 00:20:07.230 --> 00:20:09.170
  • HAD BEEN TORN DOWN,
  • 00:20:09.170 --> 00:20:10.180
  • AFTER BABYLON HAD TAKEN OVER.
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:12.180
  • AND THEY BEGIN TO CREATE ALL
  • 00:20:12.180 --> 00:20:14.090
  • KINDS OF TROUBLE FOR NEHEMIAH.
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:16.050
  • THEY DON'T WANT THE WALLS
  • 00:20:16.050 --> 00:20:17.150
  • REBUILT.
  • 00:20:17.150 --> 00:20:18.030
  • AND THE FIRST THING
  • 00:20:18.030 --> 00:20:18.270
  • THAT NEHEMIAH TELLS THEM IS,
  • 00:20:18.270 --> 00:20:20.080
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:20:20.080 --> 00:20:22.000
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:22.290
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:23.240
  • "THE GOD OF HEAVEN
  • 00:20:23.240 --> 00:20:25.140
  • WILL PROSPER US."
  • 00:20:25.140 --> 00:20:26.070
  • HE WAS LETTING HIS ENEMIES
  • 00:20:26.070 --> 00:20:27.230
  • KNOW,
  • 00:20:27.230 --> 00:20:28.060
  • IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER TO ME
  • 00:20:28.060 --> 00:20:29.220
  • WHAT YOU SAY,
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:30.230
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME
  • 00:20:30.230 --> 00:20:31.240
  • WHAT YOU DO.
  • 00:20:31.240 --> 00:20:32.260
  • WHAT YOU SAY AND WHAT YOU DO
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:34.130
  • HAS NO BEARING ON MY OUTCOME.
  • 00:20:34.130 --> 00:20:36.170
  • MY OUTCOME IS DETERMINED
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:38.070
  • BY THE GOD OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:20:38.070 --> 00:20:39.170
  • HE'S THE ONE WHO'S GOING
  • 00:20:39.170 --> 00:20:41.090
  • TO PROSPER ME.
  • 00:20:41.090 --> 00:20:42.230
  • AND THEN HE LET THESE OUTSIDERS
  • 00:20:42.230 --> 00:20:44.120
  • KNOW,
  • 00:20:44.120 --> 00:20:45.040
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE."
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:46.220
  • THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:47.160
  • IN NEHEMIAH 2:20,
  • 00:20:47.160 --> 00:20:49.170
  • "YOU HAVE NO HERITAGE
  • 00:20:49.170 --> 00:20:51.080
  • OR MEMORIAL IN JERUSALEM."
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:54.140
  • HE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:20:54.140 --> 00:20:55.040
  • THIS IS A COVENANT LAND.
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:57.160
  • THIS HAS BEEN GIVEN BY GOD
  • 00:20:57.160 --> 00:20:59.070
  • TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,
  • 00:20:59.070 --> 00:21:01.040
  • AND THEIR GENERATIONS FOREVER.
  • 00:21:01.040 --> 00:21:02.240
  • I, NEHEMIAH,
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:04.010
  • AM A PART OF THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.170
  • BUT YOU OUTSIDERS HAVE NO ROLE
  • 00:21:05.170 --> 00:21:07.210
  • IN THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:21:07.210 --> 00:21:08.170
  • SO YOU NEED TO LEAVE TOWN NOW.
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:13.170
  • THIS IS THE PURPOSE
  • 00:21:13.170 --> 00:21:15.050
  • OF REBUILDING THE BORDERS
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:16.160
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:21:16.160 --> 00:21:17.190
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:21:17.190 --> 00:21:19.000
  • OF MARRIAGES DESTROYED
  • 00:21:19.000 --> 00:21:20.160
  • BY OUTSIDERS.
  • 00:21:20.160 --> 00:21:21.280
  • THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT
  • 00:21:21.280 --> 00:21:23.060
  • OF FAMILIES RIPPED APART,
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:25.020
  • BECAUSE PEOPLE,
  • 00:21:25.020 --> 00:21:25.200
  • WHO HAD NO PART
  • 00:21:25.200 --> 00:21:26.190
  • IN THAT COVENANT,
  • 00:21:26.190 --> 00:21:27.220
  • CAME INTO THAT RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:21:27.220 --> 00:21:29.270
  • AND THEY SCATTERED IT
  • 00:21:29.270 --> 00:21:30.270
  • LIKE STRAW IN THE WIND.
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:32.050
  • YOU HAVE A BIBLICAL PLACE TO
  • 00:21:32.050 --> 00:21:34.140
  • TAKE A STAND AND LET THEM KNOW,
  • 00:21:34.140 --> 00:21:36.090
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:37.140
  • OF THIS COVENANT,
  • 00:21:37.140 --> 00:21:38.110
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:39.120
  • OF THIS RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:21:39.120 --> 00:21:40.190
  • IF YOU ARE NOT A PART
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:41.150
  • OF THIS FAMILY,
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:42.120
  • YOU NEED TO LEAVE TOWN NOW!
  • 00:21:43.240 --> 00:21:46.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:51.150
  • RIGHT AFTER NEHEMIAH BUILT
  • 00:21:51.150 --> 00:21:53.230
  • THE WALLS,
  • 00:21:53.230 --> 00:21:55.200
  • HE REHUNG THE GATES.
  • 00:21:55.200 --> 00:21:58.110
  • AND THERE'S A DISTINCTION
  • 00:21:58.110 --> 00:21:59.070
  • BETWEEN WALLS AND GATES.
  • 00:21:59.070 --> 00:22:00.160
  • THEY WORK TOGETHER BUT THEY
  • 00:22:00.160 --> 00:22:01.160
  • DON'T HAVE THE SAME PURPOSE.
  • 00:22:01.160 --> 00:22:03.240
  • YOU SEE WALLS
  • 00:22:03.240 --> 00:22:04.180
  • ARE FOR PROTECTION,
  • 00:22:04.180 --> 00:22:07.000
  • BUT GATES ARE FOR ACCESS.
  • 00:22:07.170 --> 00:22:10.170
  • AND NEHEMIAH KNEW THAT GATES
  • 00:22:10.170 --> 00:22:12.030
  • WERE NO GOOD IF THE WALLS
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:13.040
  • WERE BROKE DOWN.
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:14.250
  • SO HE REBUILT THE WALLS
  • 00:22:14.250 --> 00:22:15.280
  • TO PROTECT THE CITY.
  • 00:22:15.280 --> 00:22:17.020
  • AND THEN HE PUT UP GATES
  • 00:22:17.020 --> 00:22:18.100
  • SO THAT THE RIGHT THINGS COULD
  • 00:22:18.100 --> 00:22:20.010
  • COME IN AND THE WRONG THINGS
  • 00:22:20.010 --> 00:22:22.050
  • COULD GO OUT.
  • 00:22:22.050 --> 00:22:24.110
  • AND I WANT TO CLOSE
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:24.290
  • THIS SERVICE THIS WAY;
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:26.240
  • BY ASKING YOU IN YOUR ROLE
  • 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:28.240
  • AS A HUSBAND,
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:29.170
  • BY ASKING YOU IN YOUR ROLE
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:31.010
  • AS A WIFE,
  • 00:22:31.010 --> 00:22:31.240
  • BUT ASKING YOU AS YOUR ROLE
  • 00:22:31.240 --> 00:22:33.120
  • AS A CHILD OF GOD;
  • 00:22:33.120 --> 00:22:34.210
  • TO ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO
  • 00:22:34.210 --> 00:22:36.100
  • SHOW YOU THE THINGS THAT NEED
  • 00:22:36.100 --> 00:22:37.280
  • TO GO OUT AND THE THINGS
  • 00:22:37.280 --> 00:22:39.280
  • THAT NEED TO COME IN.
  • 00:22:39.280 --> 00:22:42.070
  • FOR SOME OF YOU IN THIS PLACE
  • 00:22:42.070 --> 00:22:43.030
  • TODAY,
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:44.200
  • THE THINGS THAT NEED TO GO OUT
  • 00:22:44.200 --> 00:22:46.050
  • ARE THE BITTERNESS,
  • 00:22:46.050 --> 00:22:47.000
  • AND THE HURT,
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:47.130
  • AND THE PAIN OF YOUR PAST.
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:49.230
  • FOR SOME OF YOU
  • 00:22:49.230 --> 00:22:50.070
  • IN THIS PLACE TODAY,
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:51.100
  • IT'S A GRUDGE
  • 00:22:51.100 --> 00:22:52.080
  • THAT YOU'RE HOLDING ONTO;
  • 00:22:52.080 --> 00:22:53.190
  • THAT UNTIL YOU LET GO OF IT,
  • 00:22:53.190 --> 00:22:55.010
  • GOD CAN'T SEND IN PEACE,
  • 00:22:55.010 --> 00:22:56.210
  • AND GOD CAN'T SEND IN JOY,
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:58.090
  • AND GOD CAN'T SEND IN MERCY.
  • 00:22:58.280 --> 00:23:02.000
  • FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:23:02.000 --> 00:23:03.120
  • IT'S BEHAVIORS,
  • 00:23:03.120 --> 00:23:04.050
  • AND IT'S HABITS,
  • 00:23:04.050 --> 00:23:05.000
  • AND IT'S PROBLEMS THAT YOU
  • 00:23:05.000 --> 00:23:06.170
  • JUST DON'T WANT TO ADDRESS.
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:07.200
  • YOU'RE IGNORING THEM,
  • 00:23:07.200 --> 00:23:08.210
  • HOPING THEY'LL GO AWAY.
  • 00:23:08.210 --> 00:23:10.060
  • YOU NEED TO OPEN UP THE GATES
  • 00:23:10.060 --> 00:23:11.190
  • AND GET THAT PROBLEM OUT --
  • 00:23:11.190 --> 00:23:13.170
  • MUSIC
  • 00:23:13.170 --> 00:23:15.150
  • -- SO THAT THE POWER OF GOD CAN
  • 00:23:15.150 --> 00:23:16.230
