  • [music playing]
  • 00:00:05.180 --> 00:00:09.270
  • You know everything God does is marvelous.
  • 00:00:23.150 --> 00:00:26.260
  • How many of you know God is marvelous Himself?
  • 00:00:26.270 --> 00:00:30.150
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:31.230
  • He does, He is
  • 00:00:31.240 --> 00:00:33.030
  • and He does marvelous things.
  • 00:00:33.040 --> 00:00:35.010
  • You know, God is so good at what He does,
  • 00:00:35.020 --> 00:00:37.250
  • when He created everything...
  • 00:00:37.260 --> 00:00:39.100
  • In the beginning He created eight things
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:41.110
  • and one by one...
  • 00:00:41.120 --> 00:00:42.180
  • First think He created He said,
  • 00:00:42.190 --> 00:00:44.160
  • "Oh, that's a good job right there.
  • 00:00:44.170 --> 00:00:46.110
  • "That's good."
  • 00:00:46.120 --> 00:00:47.090
  • The second thing He created,
  • 00:00:47.100 --> 00:00:48.110
  • "That's good.
  • 00:00:48.120 --> 00:00:49.090
  • "That's a good job right there."
  • 00:00:49.100 --> 00:00:50.170
  • The third thing He created,
  • 00:00:50.180 --> 00:00:51.280
  • "That's a good job."
  • 00:00:51.290 --> 00:00:52.270
  • He went all the way through eight things.
  • 00:00:52.280 --> 00:00:53.290
  • He said those things are good.
  • 00:00:54.000 --> 00:00:55.110
  • That's good.
  • 00:00:55.120 --> 00:00:56.050
  • God looked at what He did
  • 00:00:56.060 --> 00:00:57.150
  • and He said that's a good job.
  • 00:00:57.160 --> 00:00:59.020
  • Isn't that amazing?
  • 00:00:59.030 --> 00:01:00.210
  • That may seem awkward for people
  • 00:01:00.220 --> 00:01:03.200
  • but I think that's amazing
  • 00:01:03.210 --> 00:01:05.030
  • that God knows that whatever He works on,
  • 00:01:05.040 --> 00:01:06.240
  • it turns out good. [cong. says amen]
  • 00:01:06.250 --> 00:01:08.210
  • Whatever He's,
  • 00:01:08.220 --> 00:01:10.130
  • whatever He's messing with,
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:11.290
  • whatever He puts His hands on,
  • 00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:13.110
  • it always turns out good.
  • 00:01:13.120 --> 00:01:15.060
  • You know, the thing about God
  • 00:01:15.070 --> 00:01:17.180
  • and when He's working on you...
  • 00:01:17.190 --> 00:01:18.250
  • How many of you have ever
  • 00:01:18.260 --> 00:01:19.240
  • worked on something?
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:20.220
  • You ever pulled something apart?
  • 00:01:20.230 --> 00:01:22.050
  • I remember one year I, you know,
  • 00:01:22.060 --> 00:01:24.060
  • I found out about myself
  • 00:01:24.070 --> 00:01:26.100
  • that even though I think
  • 00:01:26.110 --> 00:01:28.020
  • I'm gonna remember where that screw goes...
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:29.180
  • [cong. laughs]
  • 00:01:29.190 --> 00:01:31.060
  • When I'm pulling stuff apart I'm not the best
  • 00:01:31.070 --> 00:01:33.150
  • at remembering where that screw goes
  • 00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:35.220
  • 'cause by the end of it you think they're all...
  • 00:01:35.230 --> 00:01:38.080
  • One's this long and one's that long.
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:39.180
  • But then they kind of
  • 00:01:39.190 --> 00:01:40.270
  • work themselves down this...
  • 00:01:40.280 --> 00:01:43.120
  • and you realize you have more screws
  • 00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:45.060
  • than you thought you would have.
  • 00:01:45.070 --> 00:01:47.100
  • And they all look the same.
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:48.280
  • [cong. chuckling]
  • 00:01:48.290 --> 00:01:50.150
  • And so I, you know,
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:51.280
  • I think the last thing I had to pull apart,
  • 00:01:51.290 --> 00:01:53.200
  • which I don't know why but I felt like,
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:55.180
  • you know I like challenges.
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:01:56.270
  • I like challenges.
  • 00:01:56.280 --> 00:01:58.100
  • So I pulled apart our washing machine.
  • 00:01:58.110 --> 00:02:01.000
  • [cong. laughs]
  • 00:02:01.010 --> 00:02:02.200
  • I pulled apart our washing machine
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:04.230
  • [Pastor Nathalie: And I rooted you on]
  • 00:02:04.240 --> 00:02:07.020
  • [chuckling] and she rooted me on.
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.030
  • She was like, "Go ahead baby.
  • 00:02:08.040 --> 00:02:09.010
  • "You can fix anything."
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:10.060
  • [cong. laughs]
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:11.090
  • And so I believe her.
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:12.180
  • [cong. laughs]
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:14.100
  • [laughs] And so, so,
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:16.050
  • but how many of you know
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:17.080
  • when you're working on something,
  • 00:02:17.090 --> 00:02:18.240
  • when you dismantle it...
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:20.030
  • At first it looks all tight.
  • 00:02:20.040 --> 00:02:21.280
  • Then when you dismantle it,
  • 00:02:21.290 --> 00:02:23.260
  • then you look back and you look at it,
  • 00:02:23.270 --> 00:02:25.170
  • it's like working pieces.
  • 00:02:25.180 --> 00:02:27.230
  • But you're at work on it
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:30.040
  • and it's all pieced out.
  • 00:02:30.050 --> 00:02:32.010
  • It doesn't at all look like
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:33.260
  • it's ever gonna work again.
  • 00:02:33.270 --> 00:02:35.050
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:02:35.060 --> 00:02:36.160
  • Anyone ever...?
  • 00:02:36.170 --> 00:02:37.190
  • You know, so what I did is I videotaped.
  • 00:02:37.200 --> 00:02:40.030
  • When I did that I wanted to know
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:41.230
  • where every screw went,
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:43.030
  • so I videotaped my whole activity.
  • 00:02:43.040 --> 00:02:45.100
  • I videotaped the first screw.
  • 00:02:45.110 --> 00:02:47.120
  • I videotaped where this belt goes,
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:49.250
  • where all this...
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:50.210
  • So that by the end of it
  • 00:02:50.220 --> 00:02:51.280
  • even though when I'm looking at it,
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:53.100
  • it looks like it's a complete mess,
  • 00:02:53.110 --> 00:02:56.060
  • I know that I can rewind that videotape
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:58.080
  • and be able to put it back together.
  • 00:02:58.090 --> 00:03:00.160
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:03:00.170 --> 00:03:02.010
  • It's interesting 'cause often
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:03.190
  • when God's working on us,
  • 00:03:03.200 --> 00:03:05.070
  • we look like that mess
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:07.000
  • that's just been pulled apart.
  • 00:03:07.010 --> 00:03:08.230
  • Our arm's over there
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:09.270
  • or our eyeballs are hanging out over here,
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:11.120
  • or this relationship's
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:12.180
  • all broken apart.
  • 00:03:12.190 --> 00:03:13.180
  • Your finances are over here
  • 00:03:13.190 --> 00:03:14.190
  • and everything is just a mess.
  • 00:03:14.200 --> 00:03:16.050
  • But do you know God knows?
  • 00:03:16.060 --> 00:03:18.030
  • He started working on this
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:19.230
  • and He does everything,
  • 00:03:19.240 --> 00:03:21.000
  • He does everything in such a way
  • 00:03:21.010 --> 00:03:22.270
  • that He can trace His steps
  • 00:03:22.280 --> 00:03:24.110
  • and get you back to what He intended.
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:27.280
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:03:27.290 --> 00:03:29.020
  • 'Cause before He starts working on you,
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:31.250
  • He sees the end
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:33.200
  • from the beginning.
  • 00:03:34.290 --> 00:03:37.040
  • Before He starts He knows how you're gonna end.
  • 00:03:37.050 --> 00:03:39.110
  • So He has His own videotape
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:41.230
  • to be able to go back
  • 00:03:41.240 --> 00:03:44.020
  • and put you together.
  • 00:03:44.030 --> 00:03:45.080
  • So even though you feel like your life
  • 00:03:45.090 --> 00:03:46.200
  • is all messed up,
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:47.280
  • your body's not acting right,
  • 00:03:47.290 --> 00:03:49.190
  • your mind's not acting right,
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:50.230
  • your mind's telling you off,
  • 00:03:50.240 --> 00:03:51.220
  • your dog is barking at you,
  • 00:03:51.230 --> 00:03:53.130
  • your family is falling apart,
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:54.290
  • your finances are not good,
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:03:56.050
  • I want you to know,
  • 00:03:56.060 --> 00:03:57.080
  • you may feel like you're that washing machine
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:03:59.000
  • after I got my first,
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.240
  • my hands on it.
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:03.040
  • It's all broken apart.
  • 00:04:03.050 --> 00:04:04.190
  • But can I tell you,
  • 00:04:04.200 --> 00:04:05.210
  • you are God's workmanship.
  • 00:04:05.220 --> 00:04:07.130
  • That He is not going to finish
  • 00:04:07.140 --> 00:04:09.110
  • until it is good.
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:10.290
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:12.130
  • 'Cause everything that God does
  • 00:04:12.140 --> 00:04:14.000
  • when He steps back,
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:15.030
  • when He says,
  • 00:04:15.040 --> 00:04:16.000
  • [clapping his hands] I'm done with it.
  • 00:04:16.010 --> 00:04:17.000
  • Guess what He says?
  • 00:04:17.010 --> 00:04:18.070
  • "Good job."
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:19.220
  • Good job.
  • 00:04:19.230 --> 00:04:20.240
  • And even though you don't feel like
  • 00:04:20.250 --> 00:04:22.100
  • you're in a good job,
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:23.040
  • where you are the good job,
  • 00:04:23.050 --> 00:04:24.070
  • and that God's working,
  • 00:04:24.080 --> 00:04:25.110
  • if He's a good craftsman like we know He is,
  • 00:04:25.120 --> 00:04:26.290
  • He's a great craftsman like we know He is,
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:29.040
  • He is not done with you yet.
  • 00:04:29.050 --> 00:04:31.040
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:32.100
  • He is not finished working on you
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:33.240
  • and He's gonna keep on working,
  • 00:04:33.250 --> 00:04:35.110
  • He's gonna keep on working,
  • 00:04:35.120 --> 00:04:36.120
  • He's gonna keep on working
  • 00:04:36.130 --> 00:04:37.110
  • because He's working on you
  • 00:04:37.120 --> 00:04:38.210
  • to get you ready for a work.
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:40.170
  • Let's look at what Ephesians says.
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:43.010
  • Ephesians 2:10 says this,
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:45.030
  • "For we are His workmanship,
  • 00:04:45.040 --> 00:04:47.240
  • "created in Christ Jesus
  • 00:04:47.250 --> 00:04:49.180
  • "for good works,
  • 00:04:49.190 --> 00:04:50.220
  • "which God prepared beforehand
  • 00:04:50.230 --> 00:04:52.160
  • "that we should walk in them."
  • 00:04:52.170 --> 00:04:54.110
  • I'm gonna read it again.
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:55.150
  • "For we are His"
  • 00:04:55.160 --> 00:04:56.210
  • Say it with me.
  • 00:04:56.220 --> 00:04:57.220
  • "We are His"
  • 00:04:57.230 --> 00:04:59.060
  • [cong. says workmanship]
  • 00:04:59.070 --> 00:05:00.070
  • We are His
  • 00:05:00.080 --> 00:05:01.040
  • [cong. says workmanship]
  • 00:05:01.050 --> 00:05:02.060
  • We are His workmanship.
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:03.090
  • That means
  • 00:05:03.100 --> 00:05:04.050
  • by the end of this
  • 00:05:04.060 --> 00:05:05.060
  • His credibility as a craftsman
  • 00:05:05.070 --> 00:05:08.120
  • will be recognized by the work
  • 00:05:08.130 --> 00:05:10.290
  • that He's done in us.
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:12.070
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:13.230
  • So he can't leave you apart,
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:16.180
  • broken apart, messed up, jacked up.
  • 00:05:16.190 --> 00:05:18.210
  • He can't leave you like that
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:20.060
  • because it would reflect
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:21.230
  • on His craftsmanship.
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:23.040
  • [cong. says amen]
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:24.140
  • So if you stay with Him,
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:25.260
  • let Him continue to work...
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:27.040
  • The wonderful thing about God is
  • 00:05:27.050 --> 00:05:28.180
  • He refers to Himself as a potter.
  • 00:05:28.190 --> 00:05:31.190
  • You know what a potter...
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:33.210
  • A potter is amazing
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:34.190
  • because a potter can take a lump of clay
  • 00:05:34.200 --> 00:05:36.150
  • that looks like nothing,
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:38.050
  • put it on a wheel,

  • some kind of handout.
  • 00:11:59.290 --> 00:12:01.130

  • "'Silver and gold I do not have,

  • Peter was running for his life.
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:19.050
  • He was swinging swords,

  • hitting everything he could hit.
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:23.190

  • [cong. chuckling]

  • [cong. laughing]
  • 00:12:45.170 --> 00:12:47.140

  • He was down himself.
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:13:00.060
  • Can I tell you, when you think you're down
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:02.120
  • and you're on the run,

  • God worked on him.
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:25.260
  • Said, Peter don't give up.
  • 00:13:25.270 --> 00:13:27.170
  • He said listen, make sure

  • you get Peter to the right place.
  • 00:13:29.290 --> 00:13:31.210

  • that's been depressed and down
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:47.190

  • What can God do with you...
  • 00:13:53.240 --> 00:13:55.240

  • Immigrants moving into the United States

  • to restore peoples lives.
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:43.030
  • When people were desperate

  • and people were broken
  • 00:19:46.070 --> 00:19:47.110
  • and their normal banks couldn't help them,
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:49.080
  • Giannini was there

  • 00:24:20.200 --> 00:24:21.270
  • People say, oh I want to grow in that.
  • 00:24:21.280 --> 00:24:24.160
  • You know, you cannot grow in authority.
  • 00:24:24.170 --> 00:24:27.180
  • From the day you are born of God,
  • 00:24:27.190 --> 00:24:31.000
  • you have received authority.
  • 00:24:31.010 --> 00:24:34.200
  • How does that work?
  • 00:24:34.210 --> 00:24:35.270
  • Because authority is not something
  • 00:24:35.280 --> 00:24:38.070
  • that comes from you.
  • 00:24:38.080 --> 00:24:39.210
  • All authority in heaven and earth
  • 00:24:39.220 --> 00:24:42.270
  • is in the Name above all names.
  • 00:24:42.280 --> 00:24:45.170
  • All authority over all
  • 00:24:45.180 --> 00:24:48.010
  • the power of the devil,
  • 00:24:48.020 --> 00:24:49.140
  • over every wicked thing,
  • 00:24:49.150 --> 00:24:51.200
  • over every living thing,
  • 00:24:51.210 --> 00:24:53.060
  • is held in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:24:53.070 --> 00:24:56.190
  • Isn't that powerful?
  • 00:24:56.200 --> 00:24:57.260
  • So it doesn't matter how long
  • 00:24:57.270 --> 00:24:59.150
  • you've been with the Lord.
  • 00:24:59.160 --> 00:25:00.210
  • It doesn't even matter
  • 00:25:00.220 --> 00:25:02.030
  • how much you have it together.
  • 00:25:02.040 --> 00:25:04.200
  • The name of Jesus
  • 00:25:04.210 --> 00:25:06.250
  • will never lose its power.
  • 00:25:06.260 --> 00:25:08.180
  • Amen.
  • 00:25:08.190 --> 00:25:10.000
  • The Father Himself
  • 00:25:10.010 --> 00:25:11.120
  • has invested all authority,
  • 00:25:11.130 --> 00:25:14.090
  • all power in His Son,
  • 00:25:14.100 --> 00:25:17.030
  • Jesus the Christ.
  • 00:25:17.040 --> 00:25:18.280
  • And if He's your Christ,
  • 00:25:18.290 --> 00:25:21.020
  • if He's your Lord,
  • 00:25:21.030 --> 00:25:22.130
  • if He's your master,
  • 00:25:22.140 --> 00:25:24.000
  • then Jesus says,
  • 00:25:24.010 --> 00:25:25.110
  • "I give you My name."
  • 00:25:25.120 --> 00:25:27.010
  • Come on now.
  • 00:25:27.020 --> 00:25:28.090
  • I give you my name
  • 00:25:28.100 --> 00:25:29.250
  • to tread upon serpents and scorpions
  • 00:25:29.260 --> 00:25:32.100
  • and over all the power of the devil,
  • 00:25:32.110 --> 00:25:34.290
  • and by no means,
  • 00:25:35.000 --> 00:25:36.220
  • not in any way, shape, or form,
  • 00:25:36.230 --> 00:25:38.140
  • shall anything hurt you.
  • 00:25:38.150 --> 00:25:39.280
  • This is very important to know
  • 00:25:39.290 --> 00:25:42.100
  • because most of the body of Christ
  • 00:25:42.110 --> 00:25:44.270
  • shies away
  • 00:25:44.280 --> 00:25:45.290
  • from walking in authority
  • 00:25:46.000 --> 00:25:47.280
  • over the devil.
  • 00:25:47.290 --> 00:25:49.020
