  • YOUR WIFE IS TO YOU.

  • EVERY DAY, CHERISH THEM.
  • 00:05:14.080 --> 00:05:16.070
  • EVERY DAY, HONOR THEM.
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:18.000
  • EVERY DAY, LOVE THEM.
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:20.290
  • ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THAT
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:21.290
  • WE NEED AN ANNUAL REMINDER TO
  • 00:05:21.290 --> 00:05:23.090
  • SHOW LOVE IS BECAUSE WE'VE
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:24.180
  • ALLOWED THE SOCIETY TO REDEFINE

  • THE ROLES OF THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:05:27.080 --> 00:05:29.070
  • OF A HUSBAND AND A WIFE.
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:31.070
  • WE'VE DEPARTED FROM GOD'S

  • MANUAL.
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:33.130
  • AND WE'RE NOW LETTING THE

  • LIVING TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD AND

  • PUTTING THIS TO PRACTICE.
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:49.230
  • YOU NEED TO STOP TAKING

  • MATRIMONIAL ADVICE FROM PEOPLE
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:52.290

  • TIMES,
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:55.040
  • AND START LOOKING AT WHAT GOD

  • HAS SAID NEEDS TO HAPPEN IN
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:57.280
  • YOUR HOUSEHOLD.
  • 00:05:57.280 --> 00:06:00.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:06:00.110 --> 00:06:02.220
  • THIS IS THE MOST POWERFUL

  • DECLARATION OF LOVE THAT HAS
  • 00:06:05.170 --> 00:06:07.060
  • EVER BEEN PRINTED.

  • THAT YOU'LL EVER NEED.
  • 00:06:14.050 --> 00:06:15.050
  • IT IS MAGNIFICENT IN EVERY WAY!
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:18.130
  • BUT IT'S ABSOLUTELY POWERLESS
  • 00:06:18.130 --> 00:06:19.270
  • UNLESS YOU'RE WILLING TO TAKE
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.070
  • IT AND MAKE IT WORK IN YOUR
  • 00:06:21.070 --> 00:06:23.000
  • LIFE.
  • 00:06:23.000 --> 00:06:24.140
  • WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOU DEPENDS
  • 00:06:24.140 --> 00:06:26.120
  • ON WHAT YOU'RE WILLING TO DO
  • 00:06:26.120 --> 00:06:27.200
  • WITH IT.
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:29.180
  • AND TONIGHT,
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:30.050
  • WE'RE GOING TO SEE WHAT THE
  • 00:06:30.050 --> 00:06:31.010
  • BIBLE SAYS LOVE LOOKS LIKE.
  • 00:06:31.010 --> 00:06:34.000
  • THE BOOK OF SONG OF SOLOMON
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:36.030
  • 8:6 AND 7.
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:38.030
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:39.110
  • AMEN.
  • 00:06:39.110 --> 00:06:40.030
  • LET'S READ IT TOGETHER.
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:41.200
  • SET ME AS A SEAL UPON YOUR
  • 00:06:41.200 --> 00:06:43.240
  • HEART, AS A SEAL UPON YOUR ARM,
  • 00:06:43.250 --> 00:06:46.250
  • FOR LOVE IS AS STRONG AS DEATH.
  • 00:06:46.250 --> 00:06:49.170
  • SAY THAT AGAIN,
  • 00:06:49.170 --> 00:06:50.150
  • FOR LOVE IS AS STRONG AS DEATH.
  • 00:06:50.260 --> 00:06:53.260
  • JEALOUSY IS CRUEL AS THE GRAVE.
  • 00:06:53.260 --> 00:06:56.070
  • ITS FLAMES ARE FLAMES OF FIRE,
  • 00:06:56.070 --> 00:06:57.290
  • THE MOST VEHEMENT FLAME.
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:06:59.200
  • MANY WATERS CANNOT QUENCH LOVE,
  • 00:06:59.200 --> 00:07:01.270
  • NOR CAN THE FLOODS DROWN IT.
  • 00:07:01.270 --> 00:07:04.060
  • IF A MAN WOULD GIVE FOR LOVE
  • 00:07:04.060 --> 00:07:06.000
  • ALL OF THE WEALTH OF HIS HOUSE,
  • 00:07:06.000 --> 00:07:08.010
  • IT WOULD BE UTTERLY DESPISED.
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:10.250
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:07:10.250 --> 00:07:11.150
  • TONIGHT HELP US TO SEE WHAT YOU
  • 00:07:11.150 --> 00:07:13.180
  • SEE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE LOVE
  • 00:07:13.200 --> 00:07:16.200
  • BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN.
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:18.090
  • HELP US TO UNDERSTAND HOW THIS
  • 00:07:18.090 --> 00:07:20.070
  • IS THE PRIORITY OF SOCIETY
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:22.250
  • AND THE SECRET TO RETURNING
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:24.020
  • THIS NATION BACK TO GOD.
  • 00:07:24.020 --> 00:07:26.020
  • IN JESUS' NAME,
  • 00:07:26.020 --> 00:07:26.220
  • WE PRAY AND ASK.
  • 00:07:26.220 --> 00:07:27.170
  • AND ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN SAID,
  • 00:07:27.170 --> 00:07:29.000
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:07:29.000 --> 00:07:30.020
  • PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:31.080
  • THE SONG OF SOLOMON IS THE
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:32.200
  • GREATEST LOVE SONG THAT'S EVER
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.100
  • BEEN WRITTEN.
  • 00:07:34.100 --> 00:07:35.190
  • I KNOW SOME OF YOU THINK THAT
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:36.200
  • PATSY CLINE AND "CRAZY" ARE A
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:38.090
  • CLOSE SECOND.
  • 00:07:38.090 --> 00:07:39.040
  • BUT I ASSURE YOU THERE'S
  • 00:07:39.040 --> 00:07:40.240
  • NOTHING QUITE LIKE WHAT SOLOMON
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:42.140
  • HAD TO SAY ABOUT THIS WOMAN.
  • 00:07:42.140 --> 00:07:45.110
  • YOU SEE SOLOMON WAS A SONG
  • 00:07:45.110 --> 00:07:46.120
  • WRITER.
  • 00:07:46.120 --> 00:07:47.020
  • HE WROTE OVER A THOUSAND SONGS,
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:49.080
  • AND THIS IS CONSIDERED TO BE
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:51.060
  • HIS GREATEST EVER.
  • 00:07:51.060 --> 00:07:52.290
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT,
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:53.220
  • IN CERTAIN TRANSLATION OF THE
  • 00:07:53.220 --> 00:07:55.000
  • BIBLE,
  • 00:07:55.000 --> 00:07:55.180
  • IT'S NOT CALLED
  • 00:07:55.180 --> 00:07:56.160
  • "THE SONG OF SOLOMON."
  • 00:07:56.160 --> 00:07:57.150
  • IT'S CALLED
  • 00:07:57.150 --> 00:07:58.050
  • "THE SONG OF SONGS."
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:08:00.180
  • IT'S SET APART FROM ALL OF
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:02.010
  • THE OTHERS THAT HE WROTE,
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:03.100
  • BECAUSE THIS WAS THE DEEPEST
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:04.270
  • EXPRESSION OF LOVE THAT EVER
  • 00:08:04.270 --> 00:08:06.240
  • CAME OUT OF THE MOUTH OF A MAN.
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:10.000
  • EVERY CHAPTER, EVERY VERSE,
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:11.260
  • EVERY LINE
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:13.010
  • IS WRITTEN ABOUT ONE.
  • 00:08:13.010 --> 00:08:15.240
  • IN THE STORY OF SOLOMON AS
  • 00:08:15.240 --> 00:08:17.070
  • KING,
  • 00:08:17.070 --> 00:08:19.040
  • WE HEAR OFTEN ABOUT HOW HE HAD
  • 00:08:19.040 --> 00:08:21.010
  • MORE THAN A THOUSAND WIVES.
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:23.100
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT SOLOMON
  • 00:08:23.100 --> 00:08:24.130
  • BECAME KING AT A VERY YOUNG
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:25.290
  • AGE.
  • 00:08:25.290 --> 00:08:26.200
  • AND BY THE TIME HE WAS OLD,
  • 00:08:26.200 --> 00:08:28.050
  • HE DID HAVE MORE THAN A
  • 00:08:28.050 --> 00:08:29.060
  • THOUSAND WIVES.
  • 00:08:29.060 --> 00:08:30.030
  • BUT MOST OF THOSE RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:08:30.030 --> 00:08:31.260
  • WERE FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES.
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:33.170
  • HE WOULD MARRY A WOMAN WHO WAS
  • 00:08:33.170 --> 00:08:35.190
  • IN ANOTHER KING'S CASTLE,
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:37.090
  • TAKE HER AS HIS WIFE SO THAT
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:38.270
  • THERE WOULD BE A TREATY
  • 00:08:38.270 --> 00:08:40.020
  • AND THERE WOULDN'T BE WAR
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:41.130
  • BETWEEN THOSE TWO NATIONS.
  • 00:08:41.130 --> 00:08:43.030
  • IT WAS KIND OF AN OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:08:43.030 --> 00:08:44.100
  • VERSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS.
  • 00:08:44.100 --> 00:08:46.100
  • IT WAS A BUNCH OF RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:47.240
  • THAT HE DIDN'T NEED,
  • 00:08:47.240 --> 00:08:48.220
  • BUILT UPON LIES THAT HE DIDN'T
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:50.080
  • MEAN THAT COST MORE THAN HE
  • 00:08:50.080 --> 00:08:51.150
  • WANTED TO PAY,
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:52.140
  • AND REALLY DIDN'T DO MUCH FOR
  • 00:08:52.140 --> 00:08:53.140
  • HIM ANYWAY.
  • 00:08:53.140 --> 00:08:54.200
  • BUT THAT'S A DIFFERENT STORY.
  • 00:08:54.200 --> 00:08:56.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:56.190 --> 00:08:57.280
  • BUT THE SONG OF SOLOMON WAS
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:01.270
  • WRITTEN TO ONE,
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:04.040
  • NOT ONE OF THE THOUSANDS,
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:06.140
  • BUT "THE ONE."
  • 00:09:06.140 --> 00:09:08.100
  • YOU SEE WHEN SOLOMON WAS YOUNG,
  • 00:09:08.100 --> 00:09:09.270
  • HE FELL IN LOVE,
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:11.040
  • BEFORE POLITICS TOOK PLACE IN
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:12.220
  • HIS LIFE, WITH A COUNTRY GIRL.
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:16.060
  • WHO CAN BLAME HIM?
  • 00:09:16.060 --> 00:09:17.000
  • NOBODY CAN RESIST A COUNTRY
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.070
  • GIRL.
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:20.000
  • I LOVE YOU, BABY.
  • 00:09:20.000 --> 00:09:21.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:23.020
  • THAT'S MY LIGHT OF LIGHTNING
  • 00:09:23.020 --> 00:09:24.120
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:09:24.120 --> 00:09:26.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:27.220
  • THIS GIRL CAME FROM THE COUNTRY
  • 00:09:27.220 --> 00:09:29.280
  • SIDE OF SHULAM.
  • 00:09:29.280 --> 00:09:32.210
  • AND ALL OF THE THINGS THAT HE
  • 00:09:32.210 --> 00:09:34.070
  • HAD TO SAY FOR HER,
  • 00:09:34.070 --> 00:09:36.080
  • OH, WHAT HE WROTE ABOUT HER.
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:39.040
  • IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A G-RATED
  • 00:09:39.040 --> 00:09:40.200
  • BOOK IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:09:40.200 --> 00:09:41.140
  • DON'T READ THE SONG OF SOLOMON.
  • 00:09:41.140 --> 00:09:44.040
  • THIS STUFF IS DEEP.
  • 00:09:44.040 --> 00:09:45.160
  • IT'S HOT.
  • 00:09:45.160 --> 00:09:46.210
  • IT'S HEAVY.
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:48.020
  • YOU WON'T FIND IT IN A HALLMARK
  • 00:09:48.020 --> 00:09:49.130
  • CARD.
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:50.280
  • IF THEY PRINTED THAT KIND OF
  • 00:09:50.280 --> 00:09:51.270
  • STUFF; IT WOULD BE CENSORED.
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:54.190
  • BECAUSE WE INVITE PEOPLE OVER
  • 00:09:54.190 --> 00:09:55.280
  • THE INTERNET TO WATCH WITH
  • 00:09:55.280 --> 00:09:56.250
  • THEIR CHILDREN,
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:57.120
  • I'M GOING TO SKIP SOME OF THE
  • 00:09:57.120 --> 00:09:58.130
  • JUICY DETAILS.
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:10:01.020
  • BUT JUST LET ME REFERENCE A FEW
  • 00:10:01.020 --> 00:10:02.080
  • OF THE HIGH POINTS.
  • 00:10:02.080 --> 00:10:04.190
  • HERE'S HOW THE SONG OF SOLOMON
  • 00:10:04.190 --> 00:10:05.240
  • BREAKS DOWN.
  • 00:10:05.240 --> 00:10:06.130
  • THE FIRST FOUR CHAPTERS,
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:08.010
  • HE AND HIS BELOVED ARE NOT YET
  • 00:10:08.010 --> 00:10:10.130
  • MARRIED.
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:11.210
  • THE FIRST FOUR CHAPTERS,
  • 00:10:11.210 --> 00:10:13.100
  • THEY'RE JUST DATING.
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:14.280
  • AND SO IN THE FIRST FOUR
  • 00:10:14.280 --> 00:10:15.280
  • CHAPTERS,
  • 00:10:15.280 --> 00:10:16.200
  • WHEN HE DESCRIBES HER,
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:17.260
  • HE DESCRIBES HER FROM THE NECK
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:19.140
  • UP.
  • 00:10:19.140 --> 00:10:20.160
  • WHY?
  • 00:10:20.160 --> 00:10:21.210
  • BECAUSE SHE'S STILL CLOTHED.
  • 00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:24.090
  • IMAGINE THAT.
  • 00:10:24.090 --> 00:10:25.170
  • THEY'RE DATING AND SHE'S GOT
  • 00:10:25.170 --> 00:10:26.260
  • HER CLOTHES ON.
  • 00:10:26.260 --> 00:10:28.130
  • IT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:10:28.130 --> 00:10:29.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:31.160
  • THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR;
  • 00:10:31.220 --> 00:10:34.220

  • WHEN SHE'S BORNE HIM CHILDREN,

  • 00:13:50.210 --> 00:13:53.210
  • YOU ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL TODAY
  • 00:13:53.210 --> 00:13:55.210
  • THAN YOU'VE EVER BEEN TO ME

  • WELL THAT'S GREAT FOR SOLOMON.
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:23.250
  • THAT MIGHT BE HOW HE LIVED HIS
  • 00:14:23.250 --> 00:14:25.030
  • LIFE.
  • 00:14:25.030 --> 00:14:25.200
  • BUT THAT'S NOT HOW I'M LIVING

  • YOU MIGHT WRITE IT OFF AND SAY,
  • 00:14:27.270 --> 00:14:29.040
  • IT'S JUST A POEM THAT'S FOUND
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:30.280
  • IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:14:30.280 --> 00:14:31.150
  • BUT THE TRUTH IS THE KIND OF
  • 00:14:31.150 --> 00:14:33.020
  • LOVE THAT HE'S DESCRIBING IS
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:34.270
  • AVAILABLE TO ANYONE WHO WANTS
  • 00:14:34.270 --> 00:14:37.010

  • THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:41.210
  • AND JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:14:41.210 --> 00:14:43.220
  • THERE ARE THREE ELEMENTS TO
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:44.270
  • LOVE.
  • 00:14:44.270 --> 00:14:46.190
  • LOVE IS, FIRST, BIBLICAL.
  • 00:14:46.190 --> 00:14:49.140
  • LOVE IS THEN, ROMANTIC.
  • 00:14:49.140 --> 00:14:52.010
  • AND LOVE IS SACRIFICIAL.
  • 00:14:52.010 --> 00:14:54.120
  • LET'S LOOK AT THE ELEMENTS OF
  • 00:14:54.120 --> 00:14:55.160
  • LOVE.
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:56.020
  • FIRST,
  • 00:14:56.020 --> 00:14:56.160
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT LOVE ONLY
  • 00:14:56.160 --> 00:14:58.070
  • EXISTS BETWEEN A MAN AND A
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:15:00.160
  • WOMAN, PERIOD.
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:03.070
  • GENESIS 1:27,
  • 00:15:03.070 --> 00:15:04.200
  • IT SAYS: AND HE CREATED THEM
  • 00:15:04.200 --> 00:15:06.290
  • MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:09.120
  • THOSE ARE TWO DIFFERENT
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:11.000
  • GENDERS.
  • 00:15:11.000 --> 00:15:12.130
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE HAS TO
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:13.160
  • SAY ABOUT THESE TWO GENDERS.
  • 00:15:13.160 --> 00:15:15.160
  • THEY'RE BOTH EQUALS IN THE EYES
  • 00:15:15.160 --> 00:15:17.200
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:15:17.200 --> 00:15:18.200
  • GOD CONSIDERED THE MALE AND THE
  • 00:15:18.200 --> 00:15:20.060
  • FEMALE TO BE PERFECT,
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:21.160
  • COMPLIMENTARY RELATIONSHIPS FOR
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:23.120
  • EACH OTHER.
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:24.210
  • HERE IN AMERICA TODAY,
  • 00:15:24.210 --> 00:15:25.240
  • WE ARE WORKING SO HARD TO
  • 00:15:25.240 --> 00:15:27.160
  • REDEFINE MARRIAGE AND TO
  • 00:15:27.160 --> 00:15:29.040
  • REDEFINE FAMILY THAT NOW THAT
  • 00:15:29.040 --> 00:15:31.140
  • ATTITUDE HAS SEEPED INTO THE
  • 00:15:31.140 --> 00:15:33.030
  • GENDER,
  • 00:15:33.030 --> 00:15:33.210
  • AND WE DO NOT WANT TO DEFINE
  • 00:15:33.210 --> 00:15:35.070
  • EVEN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
  • 00:15:35.070 --> 00:15:36.150
  • MALE AND FEMALE.
  • 00:15:36.150 --> 00:15:39.080
  • THAT'S NOT HOW GOD SEES IT.
  • 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:41.200
  • IF YOU THINK THE COVENANT OF
  • 00:15:41.200 --> 00:15:42.240
  • LOVE AND MARRIAGE CAN EXIST
  • 00:15:42.240 --> 00:15:44.180
  • IN ANY OTHER RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:46.030
  • YOU ARE DECEIVED,
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:47.120
  • YOU ARE LIVING OUTSIDE OF GOD'S
  • 00:15:47.120 --> 00:15:49.030
  • WILL,
  • 00:15:49.030 --> 00:15:49.260
  • YOU ARE LIVING APART FROM HIS
  • 00:15:49.260 --> 00:15:51.100
  • PLAN,
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:52.040
  • AND GOD'S BLESSINGS ARE NOT IN
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:54.000
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:15:54.000 --> 00:15:55.160
  • I WAS GREATLY GRIEVED WHEN I
  • 00:15:55.160 --> 00:15:57.000
  • READ THIS WEEK THAT A CHURCH IN
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:15:58.240
  • FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE HAS
  • 00:15:58.240 --> 00:16:00.130
  • DECIDED TO REVERSE ITS COURSE
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:02.120
  • UPON THE STANCE THAT IT TOOK
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:04.010
  • FOR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:05.060
  • IT USED TO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:06.150
  • MARRIAGE WAS BETWEEN A MAN AND
  • 00:16:06.150 --> 00:16:07.230
  • A WOMAN.
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:08.120
  • IT USED TO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:09.200
  • HOMOSEXUALITY WAS AN
  • 00:16:09.200 --> 00:16:10.260
  • ABOMINATION.
  • 00:16:10.260 --> 00:16:11.230

  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:13.110
  • CONSIDERING WHAT GOD MIGHT
  • 00:16:13.110 --> 00:16:14.290
  • THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:16:14.290 --> 00:16:17.090
  • THIS ISSUE'S NOT AN OPEN ISSUE.
  • 00:16:17.090 --> 00:16:19.070
  • IT WAS CASE CLOSED WHEN GOD
  • 00:16:19.070 --> 00:16:21.080
  • HUNG THE STARS IN THE VELVET OF
  • 00:16:21.080 --> 00:16:22.220
  • THE NIGHT.
  • 00:16:22.220 --> 00:16:25.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:29.140
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT THE
  • 00:16:29.140 --> 00:16:31.130
  • GOVERNMENT SAYS.
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:32.240
  • GOD SAYS THAT MARRIAGE IS
  • 00:16:32.240 --> 00:16:34.180
  • BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:36.230
  • AND THAT'S IT.
  • 00:16:36.230 --> 00:16:39.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:43.200
  • SECONDLY,
  • 00:16:43.230 --> 00:16:46.230
  • LOVE IS PROOF THAT YOU'RE ALIVE.
  • 00:16:47.030 --> 00:16:50.030
  • 1 JOHN 3:14,
  • 00:16:50.030 --> 00:16:51.230
  • IT SAYS: WE KNOW THAT WE PASS
  • 00:16:51.230 --> 00:16:53.050
  • FROM DEATH UNTO LIFE BECAUSE WE
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:54.190
  • LOVE THE BRETHREN.
  • 00:16:54.190 --> 00:16:55.290
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:16:55.290 --> 00:16:56.240
  • BECAUSE WE LOVE THE BRETHREN.
  • 00:16:56.240 --> 00:16:58.260
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW SOMETHING.
  • 00:16:58.260 --> 00:17:00.060
  • YOUR SPOUSE IS NOT JUST YOUR
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:02.010
  • HUSBAND AND THEY'RE NOT JUST
  • 00:17:02.010 --> 00:17:03.040
  • YOUR WIFE;
  • 00:17:03.040 --> 00:17:03.260
  • THEY ARE YOUR BROTHER OR SISTER
  • 00:17:03.260 --> 00:17:05.150
  • IN CHRIST.
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:07.030
  • GOD LOOKS UPON BOTH OF YOU
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:08.140
  • EQUALLY.
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:09.090
  • AND IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE FOR
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:10.280
  • YOU TO COME TO CHURCH AND
  • 00:17:10.280 --> 00:17:12.030
  • DEMONSTRATE MORE KINDNESS TO A
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:14.010
  • STRANGER THAN YOU DO TO THE ONE
  • 00:17:14.010 --> 00:17:15.200
  • THAT YOU CAME WITH.

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:22.200
  • I WOULD LOVE TO GET A LITTLE
  • 00:17:22.200 --> 00:17:25.150
  • CAMERA AND JUST WEAR IT ON MY
  • 00:17:25.150 --> 00:17:26.240
  • HEAD SO Y'ALL COULD SEE WHAT I
  • 00:17:26.240 --> 00:17:28.110
  • SEE DURING CHURCH.
  • 00:17:28.110 --> 00:17:31.020
  • PASTOR SAYS,
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:31.210
  • "GREET SOMEBODY."
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:32.140
  • AND YOU SEE SOMEBODY YOU'VE
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:33.130
  • NEVER MET AND YOU GO,
  • 00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:34.110
  • "HELLO, BROTHER."
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:36.220
  • AND YOU LOOK AT YOUR SPOUSE
  • 00:17:36.220 --> 00:17:37.130
  • AND YOU GO...
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:39.040
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:41.230
  • PINKY PROMISE.
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:43.250

  • THE APOSTLE PAUL WROTE IN
  • 00:17:45.120 --> 00:17:48.120
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 13: WITHOUT LOVE,
  • 00:17:50.020 --> 00:17:53.020
  • I AM NOTHING.
  • 00:17:53.020 --> 00:17:54.060
  • SAY THAT WITH ME,
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:55.030
  • WITHOUT LOVE,
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:56.190
  • I AM NOTHING.
  • 00:17:56.190 --> 00:17:58.180
  • LOVE IS PROOF THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:17:58.180 --> 00:17:59.130
  • LIVING.
  • 00:17:59.130 --> 00:18:01.000
  • PAUL SAID,
  • 00:18:01.000 --> 00:18:01.150
  • IF I HAD ALL OF THE KNOWLEDGE,
  • 00:18:01.150 --> 00:18:02.180
  • ALL OF THE WEALTH AND ALL OF
  • 00:18:02.180 --> 00:18:03.270
  • THE TALENT,
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:05.000
  • NONE OF IT AMOUNTS TO ONE OUNCE
  • 00:18:05.000 --> 00:18:07.030
  • OF LOVE.
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:08.160
  • IF I DON'T HAVE LOVE,
  • 00:18:08.160 --> 00:18:09.270
  • I'M WORTHLESS.
  • 00:18:09.270 --> 00:18:11.060
  • ALL OF MY TALENT IS TINKLING
  • 00:18:11.060 --> 00:18:12.250
  • BRASS.
  • 00:18:12.250 --> 00:18:13.230
  • I MAY MAKE A LOT OF NOISE,
  • 00:18:13.230 --> 00:18:15.070
  • BUT I HAVE NO PURPOSE.
  • 00:18:15.070 --> 00:18:17.000
  • PAUL GOES ON IN THE NEXT FOUR
  • 00:18:17.000 --> 00:18:18.090
  • VERSES TO DEFINE LOVE.
  • 00:18:18.090 --> 00:18:20.140
  • IN VERSE 5,
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:21.130
  • HE GIVES THE KEY INGREDIENTS TO
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:23.030
  • BIBLICAL LOVE.
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:24.030
  • AND IT'S A VERY STARK CONTRAST
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:25.230
  • FROM WHAT WE SEE IN THE WORLD
  • 00:18:25.230 --> 00:18:26.150
  • TODAY.
  • 00:18:26.150 --> 00:18:27.210
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 13:5,
  • 00:18:27.210 --> 00:18:29.090
  • IT SAYS: LOVE DOES NOT SEEK ITS
  • 00:18:29.090 --> 00:18:31.230
  • OWN.
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:33.120
  • LOVE ASK SELFLESS, NOT SELFISH.
  • 00:18:34.020 --> 00:18:37.020
  • LOVE LOOKS FOR WAYS TO GIVE.
  • 00:18:37.020 --> 00:18:39.250
  • LOVE LIVES A LIFE OF SACRIFICE
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:42.000
  • FOR THE BELOVED.
  • 00:18:42.000 --> 00:18:43.160
  • 2 TIMOTHY 3:2 TELLS US THE
  • 00:18:43.170 --> 00:18:46.170
  • KIND OF WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:47.220
  • TODAY.
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:48.100
  • AND IT'S A WORLD IN WHICH IT'S
  • 00:18:48.100 --> 00:18:49.110
  • DIFFICULT FOR LOVE TO THRIVE,
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:51.060
  • BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:18:51.060 --> 00:18:52.160
  • PAUL SPEAKING: IN THE END
  • 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:54.030
  • TIMES,
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:54.250
  • MEN WOULD BE LOVERS OF
  • 00:18:54.250 --> 00:18:56.160
  • THEMSELVES.
  • 00:18:56.160 --> 00:18:57.270
  • THEY WOULD BE SELF-CENTERED.
  • 00:18:57.270 --> 00:18:59.080
  • THEY WOULD HAVE THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:00.160
  • THAT WHATEVER MAKES ME HAPPY,
  • 00:19:00.160 --> 00:19:02.060
  • THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:03.200
  • WHATEVER IS GOOD FOR ME,
  • 00:19:03.200 --> 00:19:04.270
  • THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO
  • 00:19:04.270 --> 00:19:05.230
  • REQUIRE OF OTHERS TO GIVE.
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:08.070
  • IF I'M INCONVENIENCED,
  • 00:19:08.070 --> 00:19:09.170
  • IF I HAVE TO GO OUT OF MY WAY,
  • 00:19:09.170 --> 00:19:11.050
  • IF IT COST ME ANYTHING,
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:12.220
  • I'M NOT FOR IT.
  • 00:19:12.220 --> 00:19:15.170
  • MANY PEOPLE CALL IT "LOVE,"
  • 00:19:15.170 --> 00:19:16.250
  • BUT TRULY IT'S
  • 00:19:16.250 --> 00:19:17.210
  • SELF-CENTEREDNESS.
  • 00:19:17.210 --> 00:19:19.020
  • THIS IS WHY A MAN WALKS OUT ON
  • 00:19:19.020 --> 00:19:20.100
  • HIS FAMILY AFTER 15 YEARS,
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:22.260
  • BECAUSE HE LOVES HIMSELF MORE
  • 00:19:22.260 --> 00:19:24.180
  • THAN HE LOVES HIS WIFE AND
  • 00:19:24.180 --> 00:19:25.140
  • KIDS.
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:26.230
  • THIS IS WHY A MOTHER CONSIDERS
  • 00:19:26.230 --> 00:19:28.000
  • HER CHILDREN A HINDRANCE AND
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:29.080
  • AN INCONVENIENCE TO A CAREER
  • 00:19:29.080 --> 00:19:32.070
  • RATHER THAN SOMETHING THAT GOD
  • 00:19:32.070 --> 00:19:33.150
  • HAS BLESSED THEM WITH AS AN
  • 00:19:33.150 --> 00:19:35.030
  • INHERITANCE.
  • 00:19:35.030 --> 00:19:37.200
  • LOVE DOES NOT SEEK ITS OWN.
  • 00:19:38.280 --> 00:19:41.280
  • WHEN YOU GO HOME AND YOU SEE A
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:43.100
  • PILE OF DIRTY DISHES IN THE
  • 00:19:43.100 --> 00:19:44.240
  • SINK,
  • 00:19:44.240 --> 00:19:45.280
  • DON'T LOOK AT THAT AS SOME
  • 00:19:45.280 --> 00:19:47.030
  • CHORE THAT YOU'RE BURNED WITH.
  • 00:19:47.030 --> 00:19:48.250
  • LOOK AT THAT AS A BLESSING,
  • 00:19:48.250 --> 00:19:50.030
  • BECAUSE GOD HAS GIVEN YOUR
  • 00:19:50.030 --> 00:19:51.100
  • FAMILY ENOUGH HEALTH TO ENJOY
  • 00:19:51.100 --> 00:19:53.000
  • THE FOOD THAT YOU HAD THE
  • 00:19:53.000 --> 00:19:54.020
  • ABILITY TO EARN.
  • 00:19:54.020 --> 00:19:56.260
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:57.290 --> 00:20:00.290
  • AND THAT'S NOT A MESSAGE JUST
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:04.050
  • TO WOMEN.
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:04.190
  • I DO AS MANY DISHES AT MY HOUSE
  • 00:20:04.190 --> 00:20:06.190
  • AS SHE DOES.
  • 00:20:06.190 --> 00:20:08.120
  • WHY?
  • 00:20:08.120 --> 00:20:08.250
  • WE'VE GOT FOUR KIDS AND THEY'LL
  • 00:20:08.250 --> 00:20:10.020
  • EAT A RUNNING REINDEER FROM THE
  • 00:20:10.020 --> 00:20:11.130
  • BACK DOOR TO THE FRONT.
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:13.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:13.200 --> 00:20:14.230
  • YOU HAVE LAUNDRY TO DO?
  • 00:20:15.250 --> 00:20:18.250
  • DON'T KICK AT IT AND THINK WHAT
  • 00:20:18.250 --> 00:20:20.060
  • YOU COULD BE DOING IF YOU
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:21.070
  • WEREN'T DOING LAUNDRY.
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:22.080
  • DO THAT LAUNDRY AND GIVE GOD
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:23.170
  • THANKS THAT THERE'S CLOTHES
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:24.260
  • THAT ARE DIRTY BEING WORN BY
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:26.030
  • HEALTHY CHILDREN WHO CAN WEAR
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:27.080
  • THEM.
  • 00:20:27.080 --> 00:20:29.090
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:29.150 --> 00:20:32.150
  • I KNOW PARENTS WHO'VE LOST
  • 00:20:32.150 --> 00:20:35.050
  • CHILDREN;
  • 00:20:35.050 --> 00:20:35.210
  • THAT LITERALLY LEAVE THE
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:36.200
  • CLOTHES HANGING IN THE CLOSET,
  • 00:20:36.200 --> 00:20:39.050
  • BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:39.260
  • HEART TO TAKE THE CLOTHES OUT
  • 00:20:39.260 --> 00:20:41.110
  • OF THE CLOSET AND PUT THEM
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:42.120
  • AWAY.
  • 00:20:42.120 --> 00:20:43.190
  • DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THEY WOULD
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:44.180
  • GIVE IF THEY COULD JUST DO ONE
  • 00:20:44.180 --> 00:20:45.290
  • MORE LOAD OF LAUNDRY?
  • 00:20:47.080 --> 00:20:50.080
  • LOVE, IN THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:20:50.080 --> 00:20:51.230
  • IS SELFLESS.
  • 00:20:51.230 --> 00:20:53.170
  • LOVE IN OUR DAY IS SELFISH.
  • 00:20:53.170 --> 00:20:56.050
  • THIS IS WHY "IRRECONCILABLE
  • 00:20:56.050 --> 00:20:57.160
  • DIFFERENCES" IS NOW A LEGAL TERM
  • 00:20:57.160 --> 00:20:59.060
  • AND A HOUSEHOLD WORD,
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:00.290
  • BECAUSE RATHER THAN LIVE A LIFE
  • 00:21:00.290 --> 00:21:02.030
  • OF SACRIFICE FOR ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.150
  • WE'VE PUT GOD ON THE SHELF,
  • 00:21:03.150 --> 00:21:05.280
  • AND WE'VE PUT THE GOD OF SELF
  • 00:21:05.280 --> 00:21:07.220
  • UPON THE THRONE.
  • 00:21:07.220 --> 00:21:09.100
  • JESUS CHRIST IS OUR EXAMPLE.
  • 00:21:09.100 --> 00:21:10.270
  • AND HE SAID TO LOVE ONE
  • 00:21:10.270 --> 00:21:12.030
  • ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU.
  • 00:21:12.130 --> 00:21:15.130
  • LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE
  • 00:21:15.130 --> 00:21:16.280
  • LOVED YOU.
  • 00:21:16.280 --> 00:21:17.140
  • THAT'S NOT A RECOMMENDATION;
  • 00:21:17.140 --> 00:21:18.240
  • THAT'S A COMMAND.
  • 00:21:18.240 --> 00:21:20.250
  • SO HOW DID JESUS LOVE US?
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:22.210
  • FIRST, HE LOVED US COMPLETELY.
  • 00:21:22.210 --> 00:21:24.170
  • SECONDLY,
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:25.070
  • HE LOVED US WHEN WE DIDN'T
  • 00:21:25.070 --> 00:21:26.170
  • DESERVE IT.
  • 00:21:26.170 --> 00:21:28.020
  • WHEN HE SAW ALL OF YOUR
  • 00:21:28.020 --> 00:21:29.060
  • SHORTCOMINGS AND EVERYTHING
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:30.170
  • THAT YOU WERE NOT,
  • 00:21:30.170 --> 00:21:31.180
  • HE DECIDED TO LOVE YOU ANYWAY.
  • 00:21:31.210 --> 00:21:34.210
  • SAID CANDIDLY,
  • 00:21:34.210 --> 00:21:35.170
  • WHEN YOU WEREN'T WORTH LOVING,
  • 00:21:35.170 --> 00:21:37.030
  • HE LOVED YOU SO MUCH THAT HE
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:38.100
  • DIED FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:38.100 --> 00:21:40.150
  • NOW HOW DOES THAT APPLY TO
  • 00:21:40.150 --> 00:21:41.130
  • MARRIAGE?
  • 00:21:41.130 --> 00:21:42.220
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:21:42.220 --> 00:21:43.230
  • SAY, WELL, I'LL LOVE HIM WHEN

  • GOD LOOKS AT YOU.
  • 00:23:54.200 --> 00:23:57.200
  • THE MODEL OF BIBLICAL LOVE IS

  • CONTAINED IN THE FAMILY AND
  • 00:23:59.140 --> 00:24:01.060
  • IT'S CENTERED AROUND THE

  • RELATIONSHIP OF MARRIAGE.
  • 00:24:02.070 --> 00:24:03.160
  • AND IT BEGINS WITH GOD

  • EXAMINING THE MAN.
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:07.240
  • WHY IS SATAN TAKING MEN OUT OF

  • HOUSEHOLDS?
  • 00:24:09.270 --> 00:24:10.190
  • BECAUSE HE KNOWS IF A GODLY MAN

  • IS IN A HOUSEHOLD,
  • 00:24:12.160 --> 00:24:13.260
