  • - So, I wanna talk to you about
  • 00:00:16.010 --> 00:00:17.060
  • a Bible principle that is
  • 00:00:17.060 --> 00:00:18.180
  • extremely, extremely important.
  • 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:22.000
  • I have never seen anyone succeed
  • 00:00:22.000 --> 00:00:24.030
  • without recognizing and honoring
  • 00:00:24.030 --> 00:00:26.270
  • this Bible principle.
  • 00:00:26.270 --> 00:00:29.120
  • I've never seen a young person
  • 00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:30.200
  • achieve -- I've never seen
  • 00:00:30.200 --> 00:00:32.200
  • anyone in life do well
  • 00:00:32.200 --> 00:00:35.060
  • who refuses to
  • 00:00:35.060 --> 00:00:36.230
  • acknowledge the truth.
  • 00:00:36.230 --> 00:00:38.060
  • Whether they realized
  • 00:00:38.060 --> 00:00:38.260
  • they were doing it or not
  • 00:00:38.260 --> 00:00:40.030
  • according to scripture,
  • 00:00:40.030 --> 00:00:41.030
  • it is a Bible principle
  • 00:00:41.030 --> 00:00:43.120
  • that can bless your life
  • 00:00:43.120 --> 00:00:46.120
  • in an amazing way.
  • 00:00:46.120 --> 00:00:47.200
  • And I wanna talk about
  • 00:00:47.200 --> 00:00:48.160
  • being set under authority.
  • 00:00:49.190 --> 00:00:52.190
  • When you talk about authority,
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:54.050
  • you have to realize
  • 00:00:54.050 --> 00:00:54.290
  • the Bible is a book that
  • 00:00:55.080 --> 00:00:58.080
  • deals with authority issues.
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:01:00.130
  • Lucifer was in Heaven.
  • 00:01:00.130 --> 00:01:01.250
  • He was one of the three
  • 00:01:01.250 --> 00:01:02.210
  • powerful angels in Heaven.
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:04.290
  • There was Gabriel, Michael --
  • 00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:06.040
  • Michael the warrior,
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:07.060
  • Gabriel the messenger,
  • 00:01:07.060 --> 00:01:08.200
  • and Lucifer the worshipper.
  • 00:01:08.200 --> 00:01:10.140
  • The worship leader.
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:12.010
  • And the Bible said that
  • 00:01:12.010 --> 00:01:13.160
  • he said in Isaiah 14,
  • 00:01:13.160 --> 00:01:15.040
  • I will ascend above
  • 00:01:15.040 --> 00:01:16.180
  • the throne of God.
  • 00:01:16.180 --> 00:01:17.210
  • I will be like the most high.
  • 00:01:17.210 --> 00:01:19.200
  • I will set up
  • 00:01:19.200 --> 00:01:20.220
  • my own congregation
  • 00:01:20.220 --> 00:01:22.020
  • in the sides of the north.
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:23.070
  • So we have a church split
  • 00:01:23.070 --> 00:01:24.230
  • going on in Heaven.
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:26.140
  • And notice the words
  • 00:01:26.140 --> 00:01:27.200
  • I, I, I.
  • 00:01:27.200 --> 00:01:28.180
  • Me, me, me.
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:29.180
  • I, I, I, me --
  • 00:01:29.180 --> 00:01:30.270
  • notice the enemy of authority
  • 00:01:30.270 --> 00:01:32.150
  • is always self--centeredness.
  • 00:01:32.150 --> 00:01:34.100
  • I, I, I, I, I.
  • 00:01:34.100 --> 00:01:35.170
  • Me, me, me, me, me.
  • 00:01:35.170 --> 00:01:38.100
  • And, of course,
  • 00:01:38.100 --> 00:01:39.000
  • Satan led one-third of
  • 00:01:39.000 --> 00:01:40.030
  • the angels in Heaven
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:41.230
  • because of an authority issue.
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:43.210
  • He saw God, and he did not
  • 00:01:43.210 --> 00:01:45.200
  • want to stay under
  • 00:01:45.200 --> 00:01:47.050
  • and come under His authority.
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:49.070
  • And he came out from
  • 00:01:49.070 --> 00:01:49.280
  • under His authority
  • 00:01:49.280 --> 00:01:51.060
  • and was cast out of Heaven.
  • 00:01:51.060 --> 00:01:52.260
  • Adam and Eve were under
  • 00:01:52.260 --> 00:01:54.030
  • the authority of God until
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:55.290
  • they stepped out of
  • 00:01:55.290 --> 00:01:57.080
  • the authority of His word,
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:01:59.230
  • and then the curse came.
  • 00:01:59.230 --> 00:02:02.200
  • The children of Israel
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:03.070
  • were on the brink of closing
  • 00:02:03.070 --> 00:02:05.080
  • the most lucrative and biggest
  • 00:02:05.110 --> 00:02:08.110
  • real estate deal known
  • 00:02:08.110 --> 00:02:10.010
  • in human history,
  • 00:02:10.010 --> 00:02:11.280
  • but they allowed 10 people
  • 00:02:11.280 --> 00:02:14.060
  • to talk them out of staying
  • 00:02:14.060 --> 00:02:16.080
  • under the authority of Moses.
  • 00:02:16.080 --> 00:02:18.020
  • Moses said we need to
  • 00:02:18.020 --> 00:02:19.090
  • possess this land at once.
  • 00:02:19.090 --> 00:02:21.170
  • But they murmured,
  • 00:02:21.170 --> 00:02:22.190
  • and they complained,
  • 00:02:22.190 --> 00:02:23.290
  • and they refused to stay
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:26.140
  • under that authority,
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.260
  • and it cost them
  • 00:02:27.260 --> 00:02:29.000
  • the Promised Land
  • 00:02:29.000 --> 00:02:30.000
  • for a whole generation.
  • 00:02:30.000 --> 00:02:32.090
  • You say, "Well, I don't
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:32.280
  • have authority issues,
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:34.150
  • and it's really not
  • 00:02:34.150 --> 00:02:35.150
  • a problem for me."
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:37.080
  • But you would be amazed
  • 00:02:37.080 --> 00:02:38.070
  • at how many people -- parents.
  • 00:02:38.070 --> 00:02:40.170
  • You need to understand
  • 00:02:40.170 --> 00:02:41.150
  • that parents are
  • 00:02:41.150 --> 00:02:42.080
  • an authority in your life.
  • 00:02:42.080 --> 00:02:45.010
  • And if you don't
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:45.220
  • obey your parents,
  • 00:02:45.220 --> 00:02:47.040
  • respect your parents,
  • 00:02:47.040 --> 00:02:48.120
  • honor your parents,
  • 00:02:48.120 --> 00:02:49.250
  • you have an authority issue.
  • 00:02:49.250 --> 00:02:52.170
  • You have an authority
  • 00:02:52.170 --> 00:02:53.180
  • over you on your job.
  • 00:02:53.180 --> 00:02:55.130
  • Your boss is an authority.
  • 00:02:55.130 --> 00:02:57.120
  • You cannot talk about him,
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:02:59.110
  • run him down,
  • 00:02:59.110 --> 00:03:01.010
  • and then take the paycheck,
  • 00:03:01.010 --> 00:03:02.270
  • and demand and wish --
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:04.050
  • and talk about how cheap he is,
  • 00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:05.160
  • not giving you what
  • 00:03:05.160 --> 00:03:06.190
  • you know you -- really,
  • 00:03:06.190 --> 00:03:08.030
  • you ought to be the boss,
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:09.020
  • and he ought to be
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:09.280
  • cleaning your shoes,
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:10.240
  • is how you really feel about it.
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:13.000
  • And the truth is
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:14.100
  • there's a Bible principle,
  • 00:03:14.100 --> 00:03:17.030
  • and the principle is
  • 00:03:17.030 --> 00:03:18.110
  • you must respect
  • 00:03:18.110 --> 00:03:20.010
  • and honor authority.
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:22.130
  • Even if your boss is a jerk,
  • 00:03:22.130 --> 00:03:25.030
  • the best thing you can do
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:26.150
  • is just get out of there
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:27.200
  • and find you another job.
  • 00:03:27.200 --> 00:03:29.000
  • Or submit to that authority,
  • 00:03:29.000 --> 00:03:31.110
  • and serve him as unto the Lord.
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:35.170
  • Because God says
  • 00:03:35.170 --> 00:03:36.160
  • I see what you do.
  • 00:03:36.160 --> 00:03:38.130
  • And many times,
  • 00:03:38.130 --> 00:03:39.200
  • I think God puts us
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:41.000
  • in certain jobs for a season
  • 00:03:41.000 --> 00:03:43.140
  • to see if we're humble enough
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:46.000
  • to submit to authority
  • 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:47.150
  • even when they treat you bad.
  • 00:03:48.160 --> 00:03:51.160
  • So when we read the scripture
  • 00:03:51.160 --> 00:03:53.220
  • -- the word "authority"
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:54.240
  • comes from the word "author",
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:56.220
  • and God is the author
  • 00:03:56.220 --> 00:03:58.070
  • of authority.
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:03:59.100
  • Authority in the home,
  • 00:03:59.100 --> 00:04:00.230
  • authority in the marriage,
  • 00:04:00.230 --> 00:04:02.070
  • authority in the family,
  • 00:04:02.070 --> 00:04:03.200
  • authority in the nation.
  • 00:04:03.200 --> 00:04:05.210
  • As a matter of fact,
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:06.100
  • Romans 13:1-2 --
  • 00:04:06.100 --> 00:04:08.230
  • I want you to see this.
  • 00:04:08.230 --> 00:04:10.090
  • It says, "Let every soul
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:11.120
  • be subject to
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:12.080
  • the governing authorities,
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.140
  • for there is no authority
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:15.220
  • except from God
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:17.230
  • and the authorities that exist
  • 00:04:17.230 --> 00:04:19.130
  • are appointed by God."
  • 00:04:19.130 --> 00:04:20.130
  • Next verse.
  • 00:04:20.130 --> 00:04:21.180
  • "Therefore, whoever
  • 00:04:21.180 --> 00:04:22.120
  • resists authority
  • 00:04:22.120 --> 00:04:24.030
  • resists the ordinances of God,
  • 00:04:25.030 --> 00:04:28.030
  • and those who resist it
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:29.100
  • will bring judgement
  • 00:04:29.100 --> 00:04:30.060
  • on them self."
  • 00:04:30.080 --> 00:04:33.080
  • Boy, our nation
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:34.100
  • needs to hear that.
  • 00:04:35.150 --> 00:04:38.150
  • I, I, I.
  • 00:04:38.150 --> 00:04:39.150
  • Me, me, me.
  • 00:04:39.150 --> 00:04:40.160
  • When we rebel against authority,
  • 00:04:40.250 --> 00:04:43.250
  • we're never more like the devil
  • 00:04:44.090 --> 00:04:47.090
  • because that was what
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:48.190
  • cast him out of Heaven.
  • 00:04:48.190 --> 00:04:49.250
  • Now here's the point.
  • 00:04:49.250 --> 00:04:51.130
  • Authority is a covering.
  • 00:04:51.130 --> 00:04:53.080
  • And my good friend, Ed Young
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:56.160
  • in Dallas, Texas,
  • 00:04:56.160 --> 00:04:57.180
  • wrote a magnificent book,
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:04:59.130
  • and he gives an illustration
  • 00:04:59.130 --> 00:05:01.000
  • in his book that
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:01.160
  • I wanna use today.
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:03.270
  • And it's a great illustration.
  • 00:05:03.270 --> 00:05:06.080
  • But he said that authority
  • 00:05:06.080 --> 00:05:07.230
  • is like an umbrella.
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:10.010
  • It's like an umbrella
  • 00:05:10.010 --> 00:05:11.110
  • over your life.
  • 00:05:11.110 --> 00:05:12.130
  • And he said authority
  • 00:05:12.130 --> 00:05:13.150
  • is like a covering.
  • 00:05:13.150 --> 00:05:14.220
  • It's like the purpose
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:16.020
  • of an umbrella.
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:17.160
  • And here's the point.
  • 00:05:17.160 --> 00:05:19.110
  • That we have to get under
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:22.170
  • what God has put over us
  • 00:05:22.170 --> 00:05:25.160
  • so that we can get over
  • 00:05:25.160 --> 00:05:27.220
  • what God wants to put under us.
  • 00:05:27.220 --> 00:05:30.150
  • And until you can get under
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:32.260
  • what God wants to put over you,
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:34.280
  • He can't trust you to put over
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:38.140
  • what He wants to put under you.
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:40.250
  • God watches how
  • 00:05:40.250 --> 00:05:42.010
  • you respond to authority,
  • 00:05:43.020 --> 00:05:46.020
  • and He determines
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:46.240
  • what He can put under you.
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:49.100
  • So when you understand that,
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:50.280
  • and you understand the power
  • 00:05:50.280 --> 00:05:51.260
  • of authority -- God is
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.110
  • the author of authority,
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:55.190
  • and we must be set
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:56.280
  • under authority.
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:58.030
  • When we live our lives
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:05:59.140
  • under His authority,
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:01.010
  • then He can put under us
  • 00:06:01.010 --> 00:06:02.280
  • what He wants us
  • 00:06:02.280 --> 00:06:03.170
  • to have authority over.
  • 00:06:03.170 --> 00:06:05.080
  • Notice that the authority
  • 00:06:05.080 --> 00:06:08.020
  • that God puts over our life
  • 00:06:08.020 --> 00:06:10.020
  • is like a place of protection.
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:13.200
  • You know, when you understand
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:16.050
  • that if you saw somebody
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:18.040
  • walking down the road,
  • 00:06:18.040 --> 00:06:19.170
  • and it was just storming,
  • 00:06:19.170 --> 00:06:20.180
  • and maybe sleeting and raining,
  • 00:06:20.180 --> 00:06:22.230
  • and you saw 'em -- instead of
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:23.210
  • doing like this,
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:24.160
  • they were doing like this,
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:26.190
  • and you saw 'em
  • 00:06:26.190 --> 00:06:27.040
  • walking down the road,
  • 00:06:27.040 --> 00:06:28.200
  • you would think
  • 00:06:28.200 --> 00:06:29.010
  • that person is crazy.
  • 00:06:29.010 --> 00:06:31.030
  • What is wrong with them?
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:32.270
  • And that's exactly what we do
  • 00:06:32.270 --> 00:06:34.200
  • when we are not under
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:35.210
  • the authority of God's word,
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:37.140
  • the authority of
  • 00:06:37.140 --> 00:06:38.040
  • the headship of Christ,
  • 00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:40.000
  • the authority in our lives
  • 00:06:40.000 --> 00:06:41.250
  • that God has put over us.
  • 00:06:41.250 --> 00:06:43.150
  • It's like walking out
  • 00:06:43.150 --> 00:06:44.240
  • and you get hammered by hail.
  • 00:06:44.240 --> 00:06:47.040
  • You get pelted with problems.
  • 00:06:47.040 --> 00:06:49.050
  • You get drenched with defeats
  • 00:06:50.030 --> 00:06:53.030
  • because you're not
  • 00:06:53.030 --> 00:06:53.270
  • under authority.
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:54.170
  • Some of you need
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:55.070
  • to hear this message.
  • 00:06:55.070 --> 00:06:56.210
  • When you rebel
  • 00:06:56.210 --> 00:06:57.070
  • against your parents,
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:58.210
  • when you talk about people
  • 00:06:58.210 --> 00:07:00.130
  • in leadership that God has
  • 00:07:00.130 --> 00:07:02.160
  • put over your life --
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:03.230
  • even your boss and people
  • 00:07:03.230 --> 00:07:05.030
  • like that -- and you just
  • 00:07:05.030 --> 00:07:05.290
  • badmouth -- or even
  • 00:07:05.290 --> 00:07:07.270
  • a preacher, a minister.
  • 00:07:07.270 --> 00:07:09.010
  • And I don't know of
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:10.160
  • any problems in this church.
  • 00:07:10.160 --> 00:07:11.250
  • I'm thankful.
  • 00:07:11.250 --> 00:07:12.210
  • But I'm just telling you,
  • 00:07:12.210 --> 00:07:13.240
  • you have to be careful
  • 00:07:13.240 --> 00:07:15.290
  • because when you remove
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:17.190
  • the authority and step out
  • 00:07:17.190 --> 00:07:19.060
  • of under the authority,
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:20.090
  • you're out from under
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.260
  • the protection plan
  • 00:07:21.260 --> 00:07:24.030
  • that God has for your life.
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:26.200
  • Not only that, but it's
  • 00:07:26.200 --> 00:07:27.140
  • a place of positioning.
  • 00:07:27.140 --> 00:07:29.050
  • When you get under authority,
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:31.130
  • you are in a zone of blessing,
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:34.020
  • and you're under
  • 00:07:34.020 --> 00:07:34.210
  • God's chain of command.
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:36.230
  • You're part of God's chain gang.
  • 00:07:36.230 --> 00:07:38.270
  • And suddenly the blessings --
  • 00:07:38.270 --> 00:07:40.290
  • you're in alignment
  • 00:07:40.290 --> 00:07:42.020
  • for the blessings of God,
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:43.290
  • the provisions of God.
  • 00:07:43.290 --> 00:07:45.180
  • All that He has is under --
  • 00:07:45.180 --> 00:07:47.170
  • if you step out of it,
  • 00:07:47.170 --> 00:07:49.060
  • then you miss the blessings
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:50.260
  • of God in your life.
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:52.160
  • There's something about
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:53.160
  • the authority of the home,
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.050
  • the authority of
  • 00:07:55.050 --> 00:07:56.000
  • the husband in that home,
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:57.150
  • the authority of the family,
  • 00:07:57.150 --> 00:07:59.040
  • the authority of the church,
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:00.250
  • the authority that God
  • 00:08:00.250 --> 00:08:02.130
  • places over our lives.
  • 00:08:02.130 --> 00:08:03.250
  • He says this is what I bless,
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:06.260
  • and this is my chain of command.
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:09.160
  • It's a place of perfection.
  • 00:08:10.160 --> 00:08:13.160
  • God puts authority over you
  • 00:08:13.160 --> 00:08:16.040
  • to bring out the best in you,
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:19.050
  • but most people aren't willing
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:20.180
  • to submit to authority.
  • 00:08:20.180 --> 00:08:22.130
  • You know, an athlete --
  • 00:08:22.130 --> 00:08:24.170
  • God puts a coach in his life,
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:26.280
  • but he has to submit
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:28.020
  • to that authority.
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:29.000
  • And if he won't submit,
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:30.060
  • then he can step out
  • 00:08:30.060 --> 00:08:31.080
  • and try to do it on his own,
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:32.180
  • but he's gonna get pelted
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:33.230
  • and drenched with defeats.
  • 00:08:33.230 --> 00:08:36.150
  • And many times, God puts
  • 00:08:36.150 --> 00:08:38.000
  • authority in our life
  • 00:08:38.000 --> 00:08:39.110
  • to bring out the best
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:40.120
  • gifts in our life.
  • 00:08:40.120 --> 00:08:41.160
  • And really, a mentor,
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:42.280
  • many times, is a tormentor.
  • 00:08:42.280 --> 00:08:45.200
  • It's somebody who doesn't
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:47.060
  • point out how wonderful you are,
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:49.070
  • but they put pressure on you.
  • 00:08:49.070 --> 00:08:50.260
  • Just like a diamond
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:51.190
  • in the rough, they put
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:52.260
  • pressure on you to bring out
  • 00:08:52.260 --> 00:08:54.220
  • the best in you.
  • 00:08:54.220 --> 00:08:55.280
  • That's what a parent is.
  • 00:08:55.280 --> 00:08:57.120
  • They don't always
  • 00:08:57.120 --> 00:08:58.000
  • tell you how wonderful
  • 00:08:58.000 --> 00:08:59.060
  • and lovely you are.
  • 00:08:59.060 --> 00:09:00.060
  • They're gonna put pressure
  • 00:09:00.060 --> 00:09:01.100
  • on you to make you better.
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:03.030
  • To bring out the gifts
  • 00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:04.170
  • that you have inside.
  • 00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:05.280
  • But here's what most people do.
  • 00:09:05.280 --> 00:09:07.140
  • They come out -- the moment
  • 00:09:07.140 --> 00:09:08.200
  • that they don't like what
  • 00:09:08.200 --> 00:09:09.210
  • the authority says or does,
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:12.090
  • they come out here,
  • 00:09:12.090 --> 00:09:14.000
  • and they say, "I'm not gonna
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:14.230
  • listen to you.
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:15.200
  • Who do you think you are?
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:16.200
  • You're stupid.
  • 00:09:16.200 --> 00:09:17.110
  • You don't know what
  • 00:09:17.110 --> 00:09:17.270
  • you're talking about.
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:18.270
  • I don't have to respect you.
  • 00:09:18.270 --> 00:09:20.130
  • I don't have to listen to you."
  • 00:09:20.130 --> 00:09:21.230
  • And you know what?
  • 00:09:21.230 --> 00:09:22.120
  • You're out here,
  • 00:09:22.120 --> 00:09:23.030
  • and you're gonna get
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:23.230
  • drenched with defeat,
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:25.120
  • and you're gonna get
  • 00:09:25.120 --> 00:09:25.290
  • hammered by Hell,
  • 00:09:25.290 --> 00:09:27.210
  • and you're gonna get pelt --
  • 00:09:27.210 --> 00:09:29.060
  • hit with all kinds of things
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:31.070
  • because you're not
  • 00:09:31.070 --> 00:09:32.020
  • under authority.
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:33.170
  • And you know what?
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:34.050
  • You can believe that,
  • 00:09:34.050 --> 00:09:35.100
  • or you cannot believe that.
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:36.230
  • This is the problem with family.
  • 00:09:36.230 --> 00:09:38.210
  • This is the problem with homes.
  • 00:09:38.210 --> 00:09:40.120
  • Because you cannot, you cannot
  • 00:09:40.120 --> 00:09:42.280
  • come out from under
  • 00:09:42.280 --> 00:09:43.230
  • that authority of a home,
  • 00:09:43.230 --> 00:09:45.200
  • of parents, and so on,
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:47.100
  • and not suffer consequences.
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:52.240
  • And I'm saying to you
  • 00:09:52.240 --> 00:09:53.120
  • that you'll never reach
  • 00:09:53.120 --> 00:09:54.170
  • your potential until you
  • 00:09:54.170 --> 00:09:56.190
  • get under the authority.
  • 00:09:56.190 --> 00:09:59.130
  • Mordecai became
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:01.280
  • Esther's authority,
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:03.200
  • and she had to come up under
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:05.120
  • what God had over her
  • 00:10:05.120 --> 00:10:07.010
  • so she could be over
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:08.190
  • what God had under her.
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:11.040
  • Elijah was Elisha's covering,
  • 00:10:12.170 --> 00:10:15.170
  • and he had to come up under
  • 00:10:15.170 --> 00:10:17.260
  • what God had put over him
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:19.270
  • so he could be over
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:21.090
  • what God put under him.
  • 00:10:21.090 --> 00:10:23.290
  • Over and over, Ruth and Naomi
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:26.120
  • -- Naomi was the covering,
  • 00:10:26.120 --> 00:10:28.060
  • and Ruth said,
  • 00:10:28.060 --> 00:10:29.020
  • "Where you go, I go.
  • 00:10:29.020 --> 00:10:32.020
  • Your people will be my people.
  • 00:10:32.020 --> 00:10:34.010
  • What do you mean, stay here?
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:35.140
  • You're my covering.
  • 00:10:35.140 --> 00:10:37.060
  • I can't let you go
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:38.020
  • somewhere, and I'm not
  • 00:10:38.020 --> 00:10:39.050
  • under your covering."
  • 00:10:39.050 --> 00:10:41.140
  • Because she
  • 00:10:41.140 --> 00:10:41.260
  • understood authority.
  • 00:10:41.260 --> 00:10:44.060
  • The man in the Bible said
  • 00:10:44.060 --> 00:10:45.170
  • I am a man set
  • 00:10:45.170 --> 00:10:47.090
  • under authority, Jesus.
  • 00:10:47.090 --> 00:10:49.040
  • I understand
  • 00:10:49.040 --> 00:10:49.270
  • the power of authority,
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:51.070
  • and because I have --
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:53.080
  • I'm under what's over me.
  • 00:10:53.080 --> 00:10:55.100
  • I have soldiers that are
  • 00:10:55.100 --> 00:10:57.010
  • under me because I'm under
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:10:58.270
  • the authority over me.
  • 00:10:58.270 --> 00:11:01.190
  • And Jesus marveled,
  • 00:11:01.190 --> 00:11:03.040
  • and He said this guy gets it.
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:06.040
  • This isn't about you
  • 00:11:06.040 --> 00:11:06.250
  • out doing what you wanna do,
  • 00:11:06.250 --> 00:11:08.070
  • and you kind of pick and choose
  • 00:11:08.070 --> 00:11:09.140
  • the authority of God's word
  • 00:11:09.140 --> 00:11:11.040
  • and the scriptures you like.
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:12.140
  • I'm cool with that.
  • 00:11:12.140 --> 00:11:13.180
  • I'll take all of that.
  • 00:11:13.180 --> 00:11:14.280
  • But ooh, I don't like that.
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:16.190
  • I can't sleep
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:17.010
  • with my girlfriend?
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:19.170
  • It doesn't work that way.
  • 00:11:19.170 --> 00:11:21.210
  • You're either under
  • 00:11:21.210 --> 00:11:22.160
  • the authority of God's word,
  • 00:11:22.160 --> 00:11:24.060
  • or you're not.
  • 00:11:24.060 --> 00:11:25.170
  • You either submit to
  • 00:11:25.170 --> 00:11:26.260
  • the truth of the gospel,
  • 00:11:26.260 --> 00:11:28.190
  • or you're not.
  • 00:11:28.190 --> 00:11:31.140
  • You either obey God
  • 00:11:31.140 --> 00:11:33.020
  • in your tithe, in your offering,
  • 00:11:33.020 --> 00:11:34.290
  • in your church attendance,
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:36.090
  • or you do your own thing.
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:38.000
  • But God says the standard
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:39.090
  • is the standard.
  • 00:11:39.090 --> 00:11:40.050
  • The covering is the covering.
  • 00:11:40.050 --> 00:11:41.170
  • And He that dwells in
  • 00:11:41.170 --> 00:11:42.120
  • the secret place of
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:43.170
  • the Most High God
  • 00:11:43.170 --> 00:11:44.190
  • shall abide under
  • 00:11:44.190 --> 00:11:45.090
  • the shadow of the Almighty.
  • 00:11:45.090 --> 00:11:47.110
  • I will say of the Lord,
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:48.100
  • He is my refuge
  • 00:11:48.100 --> 00:11:49.150
  • and my strength.
  • 00:11:49.150 --> 00:11:50.140
  • In Him will I put my trust.
  • 00:11:50.140 --> 00:11:52.140
  • A thousand may fall
  • 00:11:52.140 --> 00:11:53.130
  • at my right side,
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:54.120
  • and ten thousand by my left,
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.250
  • but I'm under my --
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:57.030
  • I'm an umbrella fellah.
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.180
  • I know that wherever I go,
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:12:00.120
  • I'm in the shadow
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:01.200
  • of the Almighty.
  • 00:12:01.200 --> 00:12:03.220
  • I'll be alright.
  • 00:12:03.220 --> 00:12:05.230
  • Somebody give Him a praise
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:07.080
  • if you believe
  • 00:12:07.080 --> 00:12:08.220
  • that God has a plan.
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:11.030
  • Stay under the authority
  • 00:12:11.030 --> 00:12:12.290
  • of the Word of God.
  • 00:12:12.290 --> 00:12:15.230
  • It's the truth.
  • 00:12:15.240 --> 00:12:18.240
  • When I think of the Word of God,
  • 00:12:18.240 --> 00:12:20.240
  • it's the authority in our life.
  • 00:12:20.240 --> 00:12:22.170
  • This book is the authority.
  • 00:12:22.170 --> 00:12:24.140
  • Not even the Supreme Court.
  • 00:12:24.140 --> 00:12:26.220
  • This book.
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:27.280
  • We follow the laws of the land.
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:30.040
  • But when they're wrong --
  • 00:12:30.040 --> 00:12:31.160
  • when they say this book
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.050
  • is wrong and they're right,
  • 00:12:32.050 --> 00:12:34.020
  • they are sadly deceived.
  • 00:12:34.020 --> 00:12:36.060
  • This is the truth.
  • 00:12:36.060 --> 00:12:38.130
  • And the truth is the truth,
  • 00:12:38.130 --> 00:12:40.280
  • and we stay under the truth.
  • 00:12:40.280 --> 00:12:42.230
  • We love everybody.
  • 00:12:42.230 --> 00:12:44.010
  • I'm not giving a hate speech
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:45.170
  • because I'm not for marriage
  • 00:12:45.170 --> 00:12:47.130
  • between a man and a man
  • 00:12:47.130 --> 00:12:49.000
  • or a woman and a woman.
  • 00:12:49.000 --> 00:12:50.020
  • I'm for what God said.
  • 00:12:50.020 --> 00:12:52.070
  • I'm gonna stay -- because if
  • 00:12:52.070 --> 00:12:53.160
  • we make family this out here,
  • 00:12:53.160 --> 00:12:56.120
  • we're gonna have some
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:57.070
  • jacked up families.
  • 00:12:57.070 --> 00:12:58.280
  • But if we put our families
  • 00:12:58.280 --> 00:13:00.280
  • under the truth of this book
  • 00:13:00.280 --> 00:13:02.240
  • and the Word of God,
  • 00:13:02.240 --> 00:13:04.080
  • we'll stand.
  • 00:13:04.080 --> 00:13:05.170
  • The storm may come,
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:06.290
  • but we're built on the rock.
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:08.270
  • And the rock is Jesus Christ,
  • 00:13:08.270 --> 00:13:11.060
  • not shifting sands
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:12.280
  • of man's opinion.
  • 00:13:12.280 --> 00:13:15.230
  • Come on and shout right there.
  • 00:13:15.230 --> 00:13:17.060
  • It's the truth.
  • 00:13:17.060 --> 00:13:18.100
  • It's the truth.
  • 00:13:20.070 --> 00:13:23.070
  • 1 Corinthians 11:3 says that
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:26.200
  • marriage is an umbrella,
  • 00:13:26.240 --> 00:13:29.240
  • but I want you to know that
  • 00:13:29.240 --> 00:13:31.040
  • the head of every man is Christ.
  • 00:13:31.230 --> 00:13:34.230
  • Hey, single ladies --
  • 00:13:34.230 --> 00:13:36.120
  • all my single ladies.
  • 00:13:37.280 --> 00:13:40.280
  • You better find you
  • 00:13:40.280 --> 00:13:41.210
  • an umbrella fellah.
  • 00:13:41.210 --> 00:13:44.180
  • You better not be dating
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:46.260
  • somebody who's not under
  • 00:13:46.260 --> 00:13:48.030
  • the authority of God.
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:50.080
  • Doesn't honor God.
  • 00:13:50.080 --> 00:13:51.190
  • You know why?
  • 00:13:51.190 --> 00:13:51.290
  • 'Cause you won't
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:52.210
  • have God's blessing.
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:54.020
  • You won't have God's provision.
  • 00:13:54.020 --> 00:13:55.180
  • You won't have God's peace.
  • 00:13:55.180 --> 00:13:57.010
  • You won't have God's protection.
  • 00:13:57.010 --> 00:13:59.060
  • You won't see --
  • 00:13:59.060 --> 00:14:00.110
  • when you're out here dating --
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:02.050
  • I know the Bible said,
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:03.140
  • but I'm real lonely,
  • 00:14:03.140 --> 00:14:04.100
  • and na, na, na, na.
  • 00:14:04.100 --> 00:14:05.110
  • You know what?
  • 00:14:05.110 --> 00:14:05.280
  • When you come out from under
  • 00:14:05.280 --> 00:14:07.150
  • the authority of God,
  • 00:14:07.150 --> 00:14:08.280
  • and if he's not under
  • 00:14:08.280 --> 00:14:09.180
  • the authority of God, your
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:11.210
  • marriage then -- because he's
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:13.050
  • the umbrella fellah in the home.
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:15.100
  • You know, if I were
  • 00:14:15.100 --> 00:14:16.290
  • to bring a couple up here
  • 00:14:16.290 --> 00:14:19.090
  • -- the girls, 99% of the time,
  • 00:14:19.090 --> 00:14:21.220
  • are a little bit
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:22.160
  • smaller than the guys,
  • 00:14:22.160 --> 00:14:24.040
  • especially in stature.
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:27.010
  • Can you imagine -- my wife
  • 00:14:27.010 --> 00:14:29.060
  • is about five-foot-six,
  • 00:14:29.060 --> 00:14:31.050
  • and she carried the umbrella,
  • 00:14:31.050 --> 00:14:32.230
  • then my head's gonna be like
  • 00:14:32.230 --> 00:14:34.120
  • this everywhere we go.
  • 00:14:34.120 --> 00:14:35.280
  • So God says -- it's His design.
  • 00:14:35.280 --> 00:14:38.020
  • I'm not ashamed
  • 00:14:38.020 --> 00:14:38.230
  • of the scriptures.
  • 00:14:38.250 --> 00:14:41.250
  • It says, that the head of
  • 00:14:41.250 --> 00:14:44.050
  • every man is Christ.
  • 00:14:44.050 --> 00:14:45.200
  • The head of the woman
  • 00:14:45.200 --> 00:14:47.060
  • is the man.
  • 00:14:47.290 --> 00:14:50.290
  • And He says if you're gonna
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:51.280
  • walk through stuff,
  • 00:14:51.280 --> 00:14:54.030
  • you need this authority.
  • 00:14:54.030 --> 00:14:55.180
  • The husband is under
  • 00:14:55.180 --> 00:14:56.260
  • the authority of God.
  • 00:14:56.260 --> 00:14:59.040
  • And if you've got
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:14:59.210
  • a husband that's under
  • 00:14:59.210 --> 00:15:01.000
  • the authority of God,
  • 00:15:01.000 --> 00:15:02.200
  • you better get under
  • 00:15:02.200 --> 00:15:03.160
  • his authority.
  • 00:15:03.160 --> 00:15:05.010
  • That's the Word of God.
  • 00:15:05.010 --> 00:15:06.250
  • Or that family is going to be
  • 00:15:06.250 --> 00:15:08.080
  • pelted and hammered by Hell
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:10.230
  • over, and over, and over.
  • 00:15:11.030 --> 00:15:14.030
  • Men, we've gotta lead.
  • 00:15:14.150 --> 00:15:17.150
  • The job description
  • 00:15:17.150 --> 00:15:18.180
  • for a husband in the Bible --
  • 00:15:19.070 --> 00:15:22.070
  • Ephesians 5.
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:24.010
  • Husbands, love your wives
  • 00:15:24.010 --> 00:15:26.010
  • as Christ loved the church.
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:27.150
  • The job description for
  • 00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:28.170
  • the husband in the New Testament
  • 00:15:28.170 --> 00:15:30.020
  • is sacrifice.
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:31.200
  • Sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice.
  • 00:15:31.200 --> 00:15:34.190
  • The job description for
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:35.160
  • the wife in the New Testament
  • 00:15:35.160 --> 00:15:37.180
  • is submit.
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:39.000
  • Submit, submit.
  • 00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:41.170
  • It doesn't mean when he says
  • 00:15:41.170 --> 00:15:42.210
  • jump, you say how high.
  • 00:15:42.210 --> 00:15:44.210
  • It does mean that you submit.
  • 00:15:48.030 --> 00:15:51.030
  • As a man holds an umbrella
  • 00:15:51.030 --> 00:15:53.110
  • under the authority of God,
  • 00:15:53.110 --> 00:15:55.070
  • you submit.
  • 00:15:55.140 --> 00:15:58.140
  • And he sacrifices,
  • 00:15:58.140 --> 00:16:00.040
  • and you submit,
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:01.230
  • and together the family,
  • 00:16:01.230 --> 00:16:03.270
  • the home, the marriage
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:06.020
  • is under the blessing of God,
  • 00:16:06.020 --> 00:16:08.130
  • the protection of God.
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:09.190
  • But when one goes over here
  • 00:16:09.190 --> 00:16:11.120
  • and says, I'm not
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:12.060
  • submitting to you,
  • 00:16:12.060 --> 00:16:13.010
  • and I'm not gonna --
  • 00:16:13.010 --> 00:16:13.260
  • and this one says
  • 00:16:13.260 --> 00:16:14.190
  • I'm not, and I'm mad,
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:15.190
  • and then the enemy --
  • 00:16:15.190 --> 00:16:16.130
  • guess what happens?
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:17.110
  • The reason divorce is so bad,
  • 00:16:17.110 --> 00:16:19.160
  • the reason affairs are so bad
  • 00:16:19.160 --> 00:16:21.250
  • is because Satan is after
  • 00:16:21.250 --> 00:16:23.150
  • the umbrella over the family.
  • 00:16:23.150 --> 00:16:25.200
  • The children are open to attack.
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:27.260
  • The grandchildren
  • 00:16:27.260 --> 00:16:29.000
  • are open to attack.
  • 00:16:29.000 --> 00:16:30.160
  • The enemy says if I can
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:31.280
  • remove the umbrella from
  • 00:16:31.280 --> 00:16:33.080
  • that marriage and get them
  • 00:16:33.080 --> 00:16:35.170
  • arguing -- because anything
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:36.100
  • with two heads is a freak,
  • 00:16:36.270 --> 00:16:39.270
  • and anything without
  • 00:16:39.270 --> 00:16:40.290
  • a head is dead.
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:45.070
  • Husbands, love your wives
  • 00:16:45.070 --> 00:16:46.180
  • as Christ loved the church.
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:48.040
  • Sacrificially, unselfishly,
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:50.030
  • steadfastly.
  • 00:16:50.030 --> 00:16:52.230
  • But what happens to many couples
  • 00:16:52.230 --> 00:16:54.280
  • is they turn the umbrella
  • 00:16:54.280 --> 00:16:57.080
  • of marriage into a sword
  • 00:16:57.180 --> 00:17:00.200
  • to fight, and they fight
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:03.090
  • over things.
  • 00:17:03.090 --> 00:17:04.200
  • Instead of being under
  • 00:17:04.200 --> 00:17:06.020
  • the authority of God
  • 00:17:06.020 --> 00:17:08.040
  • and submitting one to another,
  • 00:17:08.040 --> 00:17:10.160
  • it's I, I, I, I, I,
  • 00:17:10.160 --> 00:17:12.040
  • me, me, me, me, me.
  • 00:17:12.040 --> 00:17:13.140
  • And God says,
  • 00:17:13.140 --> 00:17:14.030
  • both of you shut up,
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:16.170
  • and come under my authority,
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:18.030
  • and love one another,
  • 00:17:18.030 --> 00:17:19.060
  • and forgive one another,
  • 00:17:19.060 --> 00:17:20.230
  • and stop being that way
  • 00:17:20.230 --> 00:17:22.130
  • because the enemy wants
  • 00:17:22.130 --> 00:17:23.240
  • to hammer your children
  • 00:17:23.240 --> 00:17:25.180
  • and your children's children.
  • 00:17:26.010 --> 00:17:29.010
  • Serious.
  • 00:17:29.010 --> 00:17:31.170
  • Act like we've got our rights.
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:33.080
  • My freedom.
  • 00:17:33.080 --> 00:17:34.150
  • I, I, I, I, I.
  • 00:17:34.150 --> 00:17:36.130
  • It's not about --
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:37.010
  • you sound like Lucifer.
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:41.160
  • Me, me, me, me, me.
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:43.040
  • And God says that stuff
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:44.020
  • makes me sick.
  • 00:17:44.020 --> 00:17:45.130
  • Get under authority.
  • 00:17:45.130 --> 00:17:47.250
  • Get under my authority,
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:49.130
  • and it'll make you get under --
  • 00:17:49.130 --> 00:17:50.180
  • and if you'll get under
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:51.200
  • what God puts over you,
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:54.090
  • I'll put you over
  • 00:17:54.090 --> 00:17:56.260
  • what I've got under you.
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:18:00.210
  • And that'll be a blessed family.
  • 00:18:00.270 --> 00:18:03.270
  • I'm almost done.
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:05.110
  • You're quiet.
  • 00:18:05.110 --> 00:18:08.030
  • That's good.
  • 00:18:08.030 --> 00:18:09.070
  • There are three levels of love.
  • 00:18:09.070 --> 00:18:10.210
  • There's hot love.
  • 00:18:10.210 --> 00:18:11.210
  • That's chemistry.
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:13.050
  • That's when you're just --
  • 00:18:13.050 --> 00:18:14.230
  • you're on fire.
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:16.120
  • You're just -- oh, my.
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:18.110
  • Oh, my.
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:19.050
  • You're kissing.
  • 00:18:19.050 --> 00:18:20.050
  • You kiss all the time.
  • 00:18:20.050 --> 00:18:21.100
  • Just kissing
  • 00:18:21.100 --> 00:18:22.180
  • and all over each other.
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:24.230
  • That's hot love.
  • 00:18:24.230 --> 00:18:25.220
  • Come on, turn to somebody
  • 00:18:25.220 --> 00:18:27.000
  • and say hot love.
  • 00:18:27.000 --> 00:18:29.140
  • Hot love.
  • 00:18:29.140 --> 00:18:30.240
  • And then there's another
  • 00:18:30.240 --> 00:18:31.130
  • season in marriage.
  • 00:18:31.130 --> 00:18:32.140
  • It's called warm love.
  • 00:18:33.100 --> 00:18:36.100
  • And that's when
  • 00:18:36.100 --> 00:18:37.100
  • daylight and dishes --
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:38.160
  • or moonlight and roses
  • 00:18:38.160 --> 00:18:39.150
  • turn to daylight and dishes,
  • 00:18:39.150 --> 00:18:41.060
  • and life becomes real, real,
  • 00:18:41.060 --> 00:18:43.140
  • and you got payments and stuff.
  • 00:18:43.140 --> 00:18:44.280
  • But you still love one another,
  • 00:18:44.280 --> 00:18:46.000
  • and everything's good,
  • 00:18:46.000 --> 00:18:47.070
  • and things have cooled off
  • 00:18:47.070 --> 00:18:48.100
  • a little bit.
  • 00:18:48.100 --> 00:18:50.050
  • But then there's a phase
  • 00:18:50.050 --> 00:18:51.110
  • in marriage that you hit
  • 00:18:51.110 --> 00:18:52.270
  • called cold love.
  • 00:18:52.270 --> 00:18:55.070
  • And it's the most important
  • 00:18:55.070 --> 00:18:56.120
  • stage because it has nothing
  • 00:18:56.120 --> 00:18:58.180
  • to do with feelings, emotions.
  • 00:18:58.180 --> 00:19:01.080
  • It has nothing
  • 00:19:01.080 --> 00:19:01.200
  • to do with sex drive.
  • 00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:03.080
  • It has to do with covenant love
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:06.160
  • that says I made a vow
  • 00:19:06.160 --> 00:19:09.030
  • under the authority of God
  • 00:19:09.030 --> 00:19:10.160
  • to you, and I love you,
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:12.110
  • and I will not leave you.
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:13.270
  • I'm not going outside
  • 00:19:13.270 --> 00:19:15.160
  • the umbrella of authority
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:17.100
  • of the marriage for
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:18.260
  • fulfillment in any way.
  • 00:19:18.260 --> 00:19:21.180
  • And you stay under
  • 00:19:21.180 --> 00:19:22.060
  • that authority.
  • 00:19:22.060 --> 00:19:23.000
  • Now here's the big point.
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:23.260
  • If you'll be faithful
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:24.130
  • to God in the cold love,
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:27.210
  • the other two temperatures
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:28.280
  • will come back,
  • 00:19:28.280 --> 00:19:30.030
  • and you'll move into hot love,
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:31.010
  • warm love, cold love.
  • 00:19:31.010 --> 00:19:32.120
  • Hot love, warm love, cold love.
  • 00:19:32.120 --> 00:19:34.040
  • That's pretty much
  • 00:19:34.040 --> 00:19:34.180
  • how marriage is.
  • 00:19:35.040 --> 00:19:38.040
  • How to have an affair.
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:39.210
  • Number one.
  • 00:19:39.210 --> 00:19:40.100
  • Four steps to having an affair.
  • 00:19:40.100 --> 00:19:41.240
  • Number one.
  • 00:19:41.240 --> 00:19:42.110
  • Convince yourself that
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:43.060
  • it could never happen to you.
  • 00:19:43.060 --> 00:19:45.260
  • Number two.
  • 00:19:45.260 --> 00:19:46.120
  • Cultivate a relationship
  • 00:19:46.120 --> 00:19:48.000
  • with a third party.
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:48.270
  • Texting, talking, hanging out.
  • 00:19:50.190 --> 00:19:53.190
  • Number three.
  • 00:19:53.190 --> 00:19:54.090
  • Compare your spouse to them.
  • 00:19:54.110 --> 00:19:57.110
  • Boy, if I just had somebody
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:19:58.170
  • like him, like her.
  • 00:19:58.170 --> 00:20:00.100
  • They understand me.
  • 00:20:00.100 --> 00:20:01.130
  • They get me.
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:02.210
  • Da, da, da, da, da.
  • 00:20:02.210 --> 00:20:04.100
  • And boy, she doesn't,
  • 00:20:04.100 --> 00:20:05.110
  • he doesn't.
  • 00:20:05.110 --> 00:20:06.270
  • Compare your mate to them.
  • 00:20:06.270 --> 00:20:08.190
  • And lastly,
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:09.040
  • connect sexually with them.
  • 00:20:09.040 --> 00:20:11.240
  • And that's how
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:12.060
  • you have an affair.
  • 00:20:12.060 --> 00:20:14.080
  • Sin has its kicks,
  • 00:20:14.080 --> 00:20:15.210
  • but it has its kickbacks.
  • 00:20:15.210 --> 00:20:17.110
  • David walked out on the balcony,
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:19.290
  • a married man,
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:20.280
  • and saw Bathsheba,
  • 00:20:20.280 --> 00:20:22.010
  • and had an affair with her.
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:23.210
  • Called for her, sent for her,
  • 00:20:23.210 --> 00:20:25.060
  • had an adulterous
  • 00:20:25.060 --> 00:20:26.030
  • affair with her.
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:28.080
  • And after she had the affair,
  • 00:20:29.100 --> 00:20:32.100
  • she went to Kroger
  • 00:20:32.100 --> 00:20:33.130
  • and picked up a pregnancy test.
  • 00:20:35.110 --> 00:20:38.110
  • And it was the wrong color.
  • 00:20:38.110 --> 00:20:40.030
  • And she picked up her cell phone
  • 00:20:40.030 --> 00:20:42.230
  • and called David and said David,
  • 00:20:42.230 --> 00:20:43.260
  • we've got a problem.
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:46.080
  • I'm pregnant.
  • 00:20:46.080 --> 00:20:47.260
  • He said well,
  • 00:20:47.260 --> 00:20:48.170
  • let me see what I can do.
  • 00:20:48.170 --> 00:20:50.070
  • I'll call your husband in
  • 00:20:50.070 --> 00:20:51.150
  • from fighting in the battle
  • 00:20:51.150 --> 00:20:53.020
  • and let him sleep with you,
  • 00:20:53.020 --> 00:20:54.050
  • and nobody will ever know.
  • 00:20:54.050 --> 00:20:55.150
  • It will be our little secret.
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:57.150
  • He calls Uriah in.
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:21:00.170
  • And he buys a wine cooler
  • 00:21:01.100 --> 00:21:04.100
  • and a little
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:06.160
  • Victoria's Secret bag with
  • 00:21:08.010 --> 00:21:11.010
  • Victoria's secrets, inside.
  • 00:21:11.010 --> 00:21:13.100
  • And he has it waiting,
  • 00:21:13.270 --> 00:21:16.270
  • and he gets him drunk.
  • 00:21:16.270 --> 00:21:19.060
  • He says now go home
  • 00:21:19.060 --> 00:21:19.260
  • to your wife and sleep with her.
  • 00:21:20.160 --> 00:21:23.160
  • Well, that man had more
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:24.080
  • convictions drunk than
  • 00:21:24.080 --> 00:21:25.210
  • most people have sober
  • 00:21:25.210 --> 00:21:27.230
  • 'cause something in him said
  • 00:21:27.230 --> 00:21:28.260
  • I can't enjoy married life
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:30.150
  • when my colleagues
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:31.030
  • are on the front line
  • 00:21:31.030 --> 00:21:32.040
  • bleeding and dying.
  • 00:21:32.040 --> 00:21:33.070
  • So he slept out on the porch,
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:34.220
  • and the plan failed.
  • 00:21:34.220 --> 00:21:37.000
  • And it wasn't long before
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:38.060
  • Nathan the prophet walked in
  • 00:21:38.060 --> 00:21:39.230
  • and pointed the finger at David
  • 00:21:39.230 --> 00:21:41.150
  • and said you've done
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:43.240
  • a horrible thing,
  • 00:21:43.240 --> 00:21:45.010
  • and the sword will never
  • 00:21:45.010 --> 00:21:45.280
  • depart from your house.
  • 00:21:45.280 --> 00:21:48.130
  • You're gonna pay an awful price.
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:49.230
  • Four times you'll see
  • 00:21:49.230 --> 00:21:51.270
  • death and destruction
  • 00:21:51.270 --> 00:21:52.140
  • come to your family because
  • 00:21:52.140 --> 00:21:53.250
  • you stepped out of the authority
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:55.290
  • of the marriage institute
  • 00:21:55.290 --> 00:21:57.110
  • and had an adulterous affair.
  • 00:21:57.110 --> 00:22:00.080
  • And it's gonna impact you,
  • 00:22:00.080 --> 00:22:01.200
  • and it's gonna impact
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:02.170
  • your children for
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:04.030
  • the rest of your life.
  • 00:22:04.030 --> 00:22:06.130
  • I want you to understand
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:07.240
  • in closing this morning,
  • 00:22:07.240 --> 00:22:09.070
  • that there are some things
  • 00:22:09.070 --> 00:22:10.290
  • that we need to understand.
  • 00:22:10.290 --> 00:22:12.110
  • You think an affair is freedom,
  • 00:22:12.110 --> 00:22:13.290
  • but it's bondage.
  • 00:22:13.290 --> 00:22:14.270
  • You think it's private,
  • 00:22:14.270 --> 00:22:16.000
  • but it's a matter of time
  • 00:22:16.000 --> 00:22:17.010
  • before it becomes public.
  • 00:22:17.010 --> 00:22:18.130
  • It always does.
  • 00:22:18.130 --> 00:22:20.090
  • You think that you're
  • 00:22:20.090 --> 00:22:21.050
  • having your kicks,
  • 00:22:21.050 --> 00:22:22.100
  • but it'll have a kickback.
  • 00:22:22.100 --> 00:22:23.270
  • And when it kicks back,
  • 00:22:23.270 --> 00:22:25.210
  • I promise you
  • 00:22:25.210 --> 00:22:28.060
  • it won't be worth it.
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:30.150
  • But I love what David said.
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:31.280
  • He had a beautiful heart.
  • 00:22:31.280 --> 00:22:33.040
  • And there's hope for
  • 00:22:33.040 --> 00:22:33.190
  • anyone who's messed up,
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:35.070
  • and everyone who's messed up.
  • 00:22:35.070 --> 00:22:37.020
  • He said against thee,
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:38.120
  • and thee alone,
  • 00:22:38.120 --> 00:22:39.200
  • when I did what I did,
  • 00:22:39.200 --> 00:22:41.290
  • I stepped out of the authority
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:43.210
  • of you, my God.
  • 00:22:43.210 --> 00:22:46.010
  • And against you,
  • 00:22:46.010 --> 00:22:46.290
  • and you alone have I sinned
  • 00:22:46.290 --> 00:22:48.210
  • when I stepped outside
  • 00:22:48.210 --> 00:22:49.200
  • of the marriage institute
  • 00:22:49.200 --> 00:22:51.100
  • and had an affair
  • 00:22:51.100 --> 00:22:52.020
  • with that woman.
  • 00:22:52.020 --> 00:22:53.060
  • Forgive me.
  • 00:22:53.060 --> 00:22:54.190
  • Forgive me.
  • 00:22:54.190 --> 00:22:55.070
  • See, the enemy wants divorce

  • 00:22:59.170 --> 00:23:00.230
  • throw down the umbrella,
  • 00:23:00.230 --> 00:23:02.190

  • and we hear it every day,
  • 00:24:07.020 --> 00:24:08.140
  • through our prayer line,
  • 00:24:08.140 --> 00:24:09.250
  • and we know that lives
  • 00:24:09.250 --> 00:24:11.130
  • are being changed for eternity.
  • 00:24:11.130 --> 00:24:13.230

  • Some of you, you know,
  • 00:24:22.290 --> 00:24:24.100
  • you watch this program
  • 00:24:24.100 --> 00:24:25.040

  • You're 1 of the 1.000
  • 00:24:25.210 --> 00:24:27.180

  • this month, that will say,

  • Number one, we pay for air-time,
  • 00:24:42.000 --> 00:24:44.100
  • which is a big undertaking,
  • 00:24:44.100 --> 00:24:46.080
  • secondly, we take the resources
  • 00:24:46.080 --> 00:24:48.250
  • and we take the gospel,
  • 00:24:48.250 --> 00:24:51.000
  • through action, like ministries
  • 00:24:51.100 --> 00:24:54.100
  • like this children's home
  • 00:24:54.100 --> 00:24:56.000
  • that we're finishing up,
  • 00:24:56.000 --> 00:24:58.060
  • and we rescue children

  • who would end up
  • 00:24:59.280 --> 00:25:01.050
  • in sex-trafficking,
  • 00:25:01.050 --> 00:25:02.160
  • who would end up homeless,
  • 00:25:02.160 --> 00:25:05.000
  • but we're providing a safe home,

  • we're introducing them
  • 00:25:11.150 --> 00:25:13.040
  • to the love of Jesus Christ
  • 00:25:13.040 --> 00:25:15.120
