  • 00:00:04.010 --> 00:00:05.280
  • (announcer) In the Western world, Christians are
  • 00:00:07.270 --> 00:00:09.220
  • increasingly faced with pressures and challenges
  • 00:00:09.230 --> 00:00:12.010
  • that we associate with days long past or lands far away,
  • 00:00:12.020 --> 00:00:15.120
  • but temptations to compromise our faith and threats of
  • 00:00:15.130 --> 00:00:18.140
  • a hostile culture are increasing exponentially.
  • 00:00:18.150 --> 00:00:21.150
  • The Bible reveals that many have faced such challenges
  • 00:00:21.160 --> 00:00:23.290
  • and many have overcome.
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:27.120
  • "Daniel" Lives of Integrity; Words of Prophecy is a study
  • 00:00:27.130 --> 00:00:31.170
  • by Beth Moore, a faith-building study
  • 00:00:31.180 --> 00:00:33.270
  • of the Prophet Daniel as he faced the kinds of pressures
  • 00:00:33.280 --> 00:00:36.200
  • and temptations that we encounter today.
  • 00:00:36.210 --> 00:00:39.120
  • It's also a study of thrilling prophecies
  • 00:00:39.130 --> 00:00:42.030
  • from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Jesus.
  • 00:00:42.040 --> 00:00:44.180
  • "Daniel" is designed to develop in us an enduring
  • 00:00:44.190 --> 00:00:47.190
  • integrity at difficult times.
  • 00:00:47.200 --> 00:00:50.080
  • Today, you can purchase a "Daniel" study workbook
  • 00:00:50.090 --> 00:00:52.210
  • and a complete "Daniel" teaching on CD for only $25.
  • 00:00:52.220 --> 00:00:56.250
  • This specially-priced bundle would make a great present
  • 00:00:56.260 --> 00:00:59.140
  • for anyone in conflict with culture.

  • Visit bethmoore.org/tv today.
  • 00:01:01.190 --> 00:01:05.120
  • I am mindful continually, "Jesus, teach me.
  • 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:11.120
  • Jesus, teach me. Jesus, teach me."
  • 00:01:11.130 --> 00:01:13.190
  • I'm thinking continually, "I want you as my teacher."
  • 00:01:13.200 --> 00:01:16.150
  • Now, this is the person that's bringing me this Word,
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:19.150
  • but I want Jesus to be my teacher.
  • 00:01:19.160 --> 00:01:22.290
  • When all is said and done and my life is over, I want to have sat
  • 00:01:23.000 --> 00:01:28.130
  • at the feet of my teacher and I want it to have been Jesus.
  • 00:01:28.140 --> 00:01:32.270
  • 00:01:34.240 --> 00:01:40.240
  • One of the points that we're making that I don't want you
  • 00:01:45.210 --> 00:01:48.020
  • to miss is the broad spectrum of things that were happening
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:52.250
  • at his feet.
  • 00:01:52.260 --> 00:01:54.220
  • So, don't miss that because that will be the most important
  • 00:01:54.230 --> 00:01:57.260
  • take home that you've got and the most important take home
  • 00:01:57.270 --> 00:02:00.290
  • that I've got, that there is so much living to do
  • 00:02:01.000 --> 00:02:04.180
  • at the feet of Jesus because there were all sorts of reasons
  • 00:02:04.190 --> 00:02:07.150
  • for people being there.
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:09.270
  • And we've already seen two of them,
  • 00:02:09.280 --> 00:02:12.090
  • one that was in a corporate setting, and then another
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:14.260
  • that was about one particular woman, and it helped us build
  • 00:02:14.270 --> 00:02:18.150
  • several of the points that we have so far.
  • 00:02:18.160 --> 00:02:21.100
  • So, I need to hear point one, please.
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:23.220
  • I need to hear everybody say it.
  • 00:02:23.230 --> 00:02:25.110
  • Number one,
  • 00:02:25.120 --> 00:02:26.240
  • "Christ came to earth as God walking among us wearing--"
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:33.250
  • I mean it's just amazing that God came wearing feet.
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:37.220
  • And then number two is this, "God..."
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:44.130
  • Now, when Jesus came to earth,
  • 00:02:44.140 --> 00:02:46.110
  • he came fully God, and fully man.
  • 00:02:46.120 --> 00:02:51.060
  • So, everywhere he planted his feet was glorious, was glorious.
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:58.070
  • And when we live life at his feet, we are touching
  • 00:02:58.150 --> 00:03:03.250
  • that glorious glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:03:03.260 --> 00:03:08.290
  • So, here's what we're gonna talk about.
  • 00:03:09.000 --> 00:03:10.230
  • Remember, we've been in Matthew 15
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:13.040
  • where we saw a large group of people that came for healing,
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:19.060
  • and I cannot say enough how important it is
  • 00:03:19.070 --> 00:03:21.130
  • for us to understand that when there has been a healing work
  • 00:03:21.140 --> 00:03:24.060
  • of God, it actually shows up because that becomes critical
  • 00:03:24.070 --> 00:03:29.130
  • to us today.
  • 00:03:29.140 --> 00:03:30.270
  • I believe he's gonna do some healing on us.
  • 00:03:30.280 --> 00:03:33.080
  • And you know what?
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:34.190
  • We're gonna go out and we're gonna walk it out.
  • 00:03:34.200 --> 00:03:36.260
  • And when we go back into that old pattern, we're gonna go,
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:39.040
  • "Wait, wait, wait, wait.
  • 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:40.270
  • That is not how a person who has been healed by Jesus acts,
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:46.090
  • and thinks, and walks."
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:48.240
  • This is how because it's imperative that we understand
  • 00:03:48.250 --> 00:03:52.260
  • that when he looses our tongue, it's so the mute will speak
  • 00:03:52.270 --> 00:03:57.080
  • who've been lame in our walk so that the walk of faith
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:04:01.130
  • takes part in strength.
  • 00:04:01.140 --> 00:04:03.240
  • We're gonna see the after effects of it.
  • 00:04:03.250 --> 00:04:06.020
  • We also look at Luke chapter 10 at a woman who wanted to be
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:11.290
  • and was welcome to be educated at the feet
  • 00:04:12.000 --> 00:04:16.080
  • of the great teacher.
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:18.070
  • We're going to look now at this process of the people of God
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:23.280
  • and the person of God, taking his or her own feet
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:28.080
  • and walking out in obedience because we're going to see that
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:32.070
  • the feet of God have a great impact on what the people
  • 00:04:32.080 --> 00:04:37.040
  • of God do in their walk of faith.
  • 00:04:37.050 --> 00:04:41.000
  • So, we're going to Genesis chapter 13,
  • 00:04:41.010 --> 00:04:43.190
  • and this is where we'll begin to build.
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:46.000
  • Genesis 13, I want to read verses 14 through 17 to you.
  • 00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:51.080
  • "The Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him,
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:54.150
  • "'Lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are,
  • 00:04:54.160 --> 00:04:59.040
  • ""northward, southward, eastward, westward,
  • 00:04:59.050 --> 00:05:02.140
  • "'for all the land that you see I will give to you
  • 00:05:02.150 --> 00:05:06.090
  • "'and to your offspring forever.
  • 00:05:06.100 --> 00:05:08.280
  • "'I will make your offspring as the dust of the earth,
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:11.290
  • "'so that if one can count the dust of the earth,
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:14.290
  • your offspring also can be counted.'"
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:17.240
  • And I love this, verse 17, "'Arise, walk through the length
  • 00:05:17.250 --> 00:05:21.040
  • "and the breadth of the land, for I will give it to you.'
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:25.090
  • "So Abram moved his tent and came and settled
  • 00:05:25.100 --> 00:05:28.050
  • "by the oaks of Mamre, which are at Hebron,
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:31.050
  • and he built there an altar to the Lord."
  • 00:05:31.060 --> 00:05:33.160
  • I want you to see the two parts of obedience that are so clear
  • 00:05:33.170 --> 00:05:38.010
  • in this passage with this first man of faith that God has called
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:44.010
  • in this way, chosen to bring forth descendants from him
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:48.250
  • and to bless all the nations of the earth.
  • 00:05:48.260 --> 00:05:51.220
  • This is Abraham.
  • 00:05:51.230 --> 00:05:53.200
  • Abram at this point, and then his name will be lengthened
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:56.150
  • into Abraham.
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:58.170
  • And I want you to see these two people because what he has
  • 00:05:58.180 --> 00:06:01.100
  • him do is he has him look, and then he has him walk.
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:06.010
  • I want you to see that it is vision first
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:08.200
  • and then it's action, vision, action.
  • 00:06:08.210 --> 00:06:11.240
  • He says, "Look, look, look out northward, southward,
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:17.060
  • "westward, eastward.
  • 00:06:17.070 --> 00:06:18.240
  • "See the land that I have given you.
  • 00:06:18.250 --> 00:06:20.290
  • Look at it. Now arise and walk."
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:23.230
  • And so, he's calling him to this vision and this action.
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:28.000
  • The reason I want to make a little bit of a big deal
  • 00:06:28.010 --> 00:06:30.100
  • about this to you is because we are not called to blind
  • 00:06:30.110 --> 00:06:34.100
  • obedience, and we don't just get this bright idea all
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:38.220
  • of a sudden, and go do something that ends up in the news that
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:43.130
  • we're saying God told us to do, all these bizarre things that
  • 00:06:43.140 --> 00:06:47.100
  • no more reflect the character of God than anything
  • 00:06:47.110 --> 00:06:52.100
  • we could possibly come up with.
  • 00:06:52.110 --> 00:06:54.200
  • He says, "You look, let me give you vision,
  • 00:06:54.210 --> 00:06:59.110
  • and then you walk in the action."
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:02.170
  • And I love it because it reminds me of the time that he told
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:05.230
  • the disciples, he said, "Pray for workers
  • 00:07:05.240 --> 00:07:08.130
  • for the fields of harvest because," he said,
  • 00:07:08.140 --> 00:07:12.010
  • "The fields are white for harvest."
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:15.080
  • And this is us today.
  • 00:07:15.090 --> 00:07:16.290
  • I think it's a very, very convenient thing that
  • 00:07:17.000 --> 00:07:19.040
  • the first two letters of the word "gospel" spell go
  • 00:07:19.050 --> 00:07:23.080
  • 'cause I mean it's a lot of going.
  • 00:07:23.090 --> 00:07:25.050
  • And he told them he said,
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:26.220
  • "Look, the fields are white for harvest."
  • 00:07:26.230 --> 00:07:29.070
  • We live in a world that is just I mean, ready, ready
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:33.200
  • for harvesting, ready to share the gospel.
  • 00:07:33.210 --> 00:07:37.050
  • And he says, I mean he's telling us, look, arise, and walk.
  • 00:07:37.060 --> 00:07:42.070
  • There's vision and there's action,
  • 00:07:42.080 --> 00:07:44.160
  • those two parts of obedience to God.
  • 00:07:44.170 --> 00:07:48.120
  • I want to talk to you about why would he have him walk it?
  • 00:07:48.130 --> 00:07:51.120
  • 'Cause this is gonna become important to us
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:52.270
  • for the next couple of minutes.
  • 00:07:52.280 --> 00:07:54.080
  • In the Word, you will see the concept over and over again.
  • 00:07:54.090 --> 00:07:57.130
  • There is something about stepping your foot on something.
  • 00:07:57.140 --> 00:08:01.250
  • There is a, go with me here, a tactile element
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:08.260
  • to the walk of faith
  • 00:08:09.090 --> 00:08:11.080
  • where there is this, "Pick up your foot and step
  • 00:08:11.090 --> 00:08:15.070
  • where I have told you to go."
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:17.270
  • One reason why this is kind of a cool thing to bring up in our
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:21.160
  • culture is because we now live in a virtual culture
  • 00:08:21.170 --> 00:08:26.230
  • in so many ways.
  • 00:08:26.240 --> 00:08:28.130
  • So much is online, so much.
  • 00:08:28.140 --> 00:08:31.080
  • Ministry truly does happen online.
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:34.110
  • I really do believe that, or I would not want to be
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:36.180
  • any part of it.
  • 00:08:36.190 --> 00:08:38.070
  • Many of you feel the same way.
  • 00:08:38.080 --> 00:08:39.280
  • In all the ills that happen out there, some real live ministry
  • 00:08:39.290 --> 00:08:42.160
  • can take place out there, some real live testimony
  • 00:08:42.170 --> 00:08:45.160
  • to the goodness of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:08:45.170 --> 00:08:47.290
  • and his work.
  • 00:08:48.000 --> 00:08:49.180
  • I love all of that, but I don't want you to forget
  • 00:08:49.190 --> 00:08:51.250
  • the tactile part of it, that there's something about stepping
  • 00:08:51.260 --> 00:08:55.080
  • your feet in your calling that you just like pick up your foot
  • 00:08:55.090 --> 00:08:58.240
  • and you step in, that we stay back from it, one of the worst
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:09:03.000
  • things that can happen to us is for us to get to where we
  • 00:09:03.010 --> 00:09:06.060
  • no longer can feel flesh and blood.
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:10.170
  • What a disaster, Nancy, if when you and I are ministering to
  • 00:09:10.180 --> 00:09:14.000
  • women, we can't grab ahold of them because when I grab ahold
  • 00:09:14.010 --> 00:09:17.230
  • of you, I remember that you are warm.
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:21.200
  • You know what I'm saying to you?
  • 00:09:21.210 --> 00:09:23.070
  • That this is a woman it's got like real stuff going on that if
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:28.040
  • I held her too hard, I could bruise her.
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:31.120
  • And she's got a heartbeat, I can feel her pulse.
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:34.120
  • I remember I look face to face, if she gets tears in her eyes,
  • 00:09:34.130 --> 00:09:37.240
  • I don't miss them, why?
  • 00:09:37.250 --> 00:09:39.080
  • Because I'm standing right in front of her.
  • 00:09:39.090 --> 00:09:40.220
  • If we lose this, we have lost something so precious
  • 00:09:40.230 --> 00:09:47.230
  • and we will forget, we will forget the real life needs
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:52.210
  • of people.
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:54.030
  • We will forget that when we hear of something, a story from
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:57.100
  • someone, it's not the same as when we say see them
  • 00:09:57.110 --> 00:10:01.170
  • face to face when we're able to touch flesh and blood.
  • 00:10:01.180 --> 00:10:03.280
  • We gotta keep the hands-on part of our ministry.
  • 00:10:03.290 --> 00:10:08.030
  • So, I say to you, because I have some fellow writers in here,
  • 00:10:08.040 --> 00:10:11.210
  • I'm sure.
  • 00:10:11.220 --> 00:10:13.060
  • I have fellow bloggers in here, I'm sure.
  • 00:10:13.070 --> 00:10:15.150
  • A lot of people that are doing a lot of ministry online
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:19.020
  • and yet, I'm gonna say to you, do you have people
  • 00:10:19.030 --> 00:10:21.230
  • you minister to face to face?
  • 00:10:21.240 --> 00:10:24.000
  • It is imperative.
  • 00:10:24.010 --> 00:10:25.150
  • Is there a place your feet walk?
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:27.170
  • Because if you're just gonna do your ministry in your basement
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:30.190
  • with your laptop, you're gonna miss it because I don't know if
  • 00:10:30.200 --> 00:10:34.250
  • I can say this right, Jesus took on flesh and blood because flesh
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:41.050
  • and blood is still important.
  • 00:10:41.060 --> 00:10:43.170
  • It's still important.
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:46.100
  • I still believe that there are people that need a hug.
  • 00:10:46.110 --> 00:10:50.080
  • I mean, I'm maternal and when I see somebody that needs a hug,
  • 00:10:50.090 --> 00:10:56.070
  • I'm probably gonna give them one.
  • 00:10:56.080 --> 00:10:58.030
  • I don't care if it's the woman checking out my groceries
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:10:59.280
  • and she does not know me from Adam.
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:01.140
  • I don't care if we've had no spiritual conversation.
  • 00:11:01.150 --> 00:11:03.250
  • If, for any reason, I get the idea that she is having
  • 00:11:03.260 --> 00:11:06.070
  • a hard day, I probably gonna come around there where that
  • 00:11:06.080 --> 00:11:08.040
  • register is, and I'm gonna give her a hug.
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:09.210
  • "Get over here, give me a hug."
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:11.100
  • Because, you know, I'm just going to because I still believe
  • 00:11:11.110 --> 00:11:13.260
  • in tactile ministry, that there's just a sensory side of
  • 00:11:13.270 --> 00:11:18.160
  • it when we touch someone, and when we're face to face.
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:21.190
  • Pick your feet up and go.
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:24.010
  • Pick your feet up and go.
  • 00:11:24.020 --> 00:11:25.110
  • Let what we do online be the overflow of that but when that
  • 00:11:25.120 --> 00:11:28.160
  • becomes our ministry, we will lose touch with people.
  • 00:11:28.170 --> 00:11:34.150
  • We will lose touch with people.
  • 00:11:34.160 --> 00:11:36.250
  • Tactile dimension, emphasis on the ground, that are our
  • 00:11:36.260 --> 00:11:42.040
  • harvest field is the globe.
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:44.200
  • Whatever piece of the gospel ground he's given you,
  • 00:11:44.210 --> 00:11:49.200
  • go step your feet on it.
  • 00:11:49.210 --> 00:11:52.190
  • Now, let me show you two ways that are gonna give this
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:55.050
  • more foundation.
  • 00:11:55.060 --> 00:11:56.240
  • Go with me, let's see, I want you to get Deuteronomy 11
  • 00:11:56.250 --> 00:12:00.020
  • in your hands and Joshua 1.
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:02.070
  • So, they're gonna be very close to one another.
  • 00:12:02.080 --> 00:12:04.010
  • Verse 24, "Every place on which the sole of your foot treads
  • 00:12:04.020 --> 00:12:09.010
  • "shall be yours.
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:11.020
  • "Your territory shall be from the wilderness to the Lebanon
  • 00:12:11.030 --> 00:12:13.170
  • "and from the River, the river Euphrates,
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:16.160
  • "to the western sea.
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:18.080
  • No one shall be able to stand against you," verse 25.
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:22.170
  • Now, look at Joshua 1:30, oh, thank you, Jesus.
  • 00:12:22.180 --> 00:12:25.180
  • Joshua 1:3 he says the same thing.
  • 00:12:25.190 --> 00:12:28.160
  • In fact, that let me go to 2.
  • 00:12:28.170 --> 00:12:30.070
  • Well, let me go to 1 because I don't know if this gets anybody
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:35.080
  • besides me, but I just, I love, I love when God just gets this.
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:39.270
  • He's just plain spoken.
  • 00:12:39.280 --> 00:12:42.020
  • "After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord
  • 00:12:42.030 --> 00:12:44.170
  • "said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' assistant,
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:47.150
  • 'Moses my servant is dead.'"
  • 00:12:47.160 --> 00:12:51.110
  • You know, there comes a time when God just goes on like,
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:54.140
  • "Okay, that's dead. I've got him, I've handled him.
  • 00:12:54.150 --> 00:12:59.010
  • "Now, it's time for you to go.
  • 00:12:59.020 --> 00:13:01.220
  • "It's time for you to go and do what I've called you to do.
  • 00:13:01.230 --> 00:13:04.150
  • "You're like sitting in that place that's paralyzed
  • 00:13:04.160 --> 00:13:07.180
  • "by what has happened.
  • 00:13:07.190 --> 00:13:09.040
  • "And let me tell you something, that now is over
  • 00:13:09.050 --> 00:13:12.000
  • "and this is what we're doing now.
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:13.200
  • I need you to go."
  • 00:13:13.210 --> 00:13:15.050
  • And he says, "Therefore go, arise, go over this Jordan,
  • 00:13:15.060 --> 00:13:17.290
  • "you and all this people, into the land I'm giving to them
  • 00:13:18.000 --> 00:13:20.130
  • to the people of Israel."
  • 00:13:20.140 --> 00:13:21.270
  • Verse 3, "Every place that the sole of your foot will tread
  • 00:13:21.280 --> 00:13:24.240
  • upon I have given to you, just as I promised Moses."
  • 00:13:24.250 --> 00:13:30.030
  • I want us to get some of this on us.
  • 00:13:30.040 --> 00:13:33.290
  • You and I need some victory on us because I started thinking
  • 00:13:34.000 --> 00:13:37.220
  • this this week, and I thought I was funny.
  • 00:13:37.230 --> 00:13:40.200
  • I hope you think I'm funny too because I started thinking
  • 00:13:40.210 --> 00:13:43.180
  • defeat is in the feet.
  • 00:13:43.190 --> 00:13:48.190
  • If you're wondering where your defeat is, it's in the feet
  • 00:13:49.180 --> 00:13:54.060
  • because it's where we're walking.
  • 00:13:54.070 --> 00:13:56.160
  • (announcer) In the Western world, Christians are
  • 00:13:57.200 --> 00:13:59.060
  • increasingly faced with pressures and challenges
  • 00:13:59.070 --> 00:14:01.170
  • that we associate with days long past or lands far away,
  • 00:14:01.180 --> 00:14:04.280
  • but temptations to compromise our faith and threats of

  • a hostile culture are increasing exponentially.

  • Can somebody say, "hallelujah"?
  • 00:15:44.080 --> 00:15:46.240
  • There's nothing, no sin, no transgression
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:49.270
  • that exceeds the power
  • 00:15:49.280 --> 00:15:52.030
  • of the cross.
  • 00:15:52.040 --> 00:15:53.210
  • Thank you, God.
  • 00:15:53.220 --> 00:15:55.240
  • If you're wondering where your defeat is, it's in the feet
  • 00:15:59.010 --> 00:16:03.230
  • because it's where we're walking.
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:05.280
  • It's we're not walking by faith, we're walking in fear.
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:09.060
  • We're walking somewhere, God knows where, instead of where
  • 00:16:09.070 --> 00:16:13.050
  • God has called us to, in this path of darkness over you're
  • 00:16:13.060 --> 00:16:16.140
  • doing all manner a thing in all manner of sin, not having near
  • 00:16:16.150 --> 00:16:20.010
  • the time we would be having.
  • 00:16:20.020 --> 00:16:22.140
  • Listen, sin is not just that it's not just as sin is sinful,
  • 00:16:22.150 --> 00:16:27.210
  • it's that it is a robber.
  • 00:16:27.220 --> 00:16:30.060
  • It is stealing from you the abundance that Jesus
  • 00:16:30.070 --> 00:16:33.140
  • has for you.
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:34.290
  • Our acting in a way that is more consistent with holiness
  • 00:16:35.000 --> 00:16:42.000
  • and rightness is not to make God feel better.
  • 00:16:42.210 --> 00:16:46.170
  • God feels fine.
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:50.020
  • He's saying, "These commandments that I've given you,
  • 00:16:50.030 --> 00:16:52.080
  • which are for your good."
  • 00:16:52.090 --> 00:16:55.080
  • He knows what will set us free.
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:58.090
  • He knows what it does to the soul to sleep with one person
  • 00:16:58.100 --> 00:17:02.200
  • after another and half the time not even know
  • 00:17:02.210 --> 00:17:05.230
  • what their name was.
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:07.190
  • He knows what all that does.
  • 00:17:07.200 --> 00:17:09.060
  • He knows what pornography is doing to that soul.
  • 00:17:09.070 --> 00:17:14.000
  • He knows.
  • 00:17:14.010 --> 00:17:16.040
  • He knows what bitterness, what emotional cancer that kind of
  • 00:17:16.050 --> 00:17:22.110
  • bitterness is bringing us, heart troubles, all sorts of physical
  • 00:17:22.120 --> 00:17:26.180
  • problems, because we just will not let go of the things
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:31.150
  • that crowd our hearts with pride and with sin.
  • 00:17:31.160 --> 00:17:38.070
  • He's calling us to freedom, and we're--our defeat is
  • 00:17:38.080 --> 00:17:41.140
  • in the feet.
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:43.020
  • Somebody say, "Defeat is in the feet,"
  • 00:17:43.030 --> 00:17:46.110
  • because right there, it's in the feet.
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:49.180
  • We're gonna get some walk on us, some walk on us.
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:53.140
  • I want to show you something.
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:55.020
  • I'm so charged up about this verse that here pretty soon
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:57.270
  • I'm probably gonna do a whole conference on this verse.
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:18:00.090
  • I've heard it before somewhere along the way, but I don't know,
  • 00:18:00.100 --> 00:18:02.210
  • it just didn't land with me.
  • 00:18:02.220 --> 00:18:04.020
  • That's what I love about the Word of God is it
  • 00:18:04.030 --> 00:18:06.050
  • suddenly something just like lands with you.
  • 00:18:06.060 --> 00:18:07.180
  • That's when you know that the Holy Spirit really has you
  • 00:18:07.190 --> 00:18:09.280
  • fixated right there 'cause he just lands on it with you
  • 00:18:09.290 --> 00:18:11.230
  • and it gets loud.
  • 00:18:11.240 --> 00:18:13.030
  • I want you to go with me all the way to Jeremiah,
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:15.250
  • the Book of Jeremiah chapter 12.
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:18.090
  • If you have a caption at all in your Bible, what do you see
  • 00:18:18.100 --> 00:18:21.140
  • at the top of that chapter?
  • 00:18:21.150 --> 00:18:23.040
  • Jeremiah chapter 12 is talking about Jeremiah's what?
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:25.170
  • Does anybody see it? Complaint, complaint.
  • 00:18:25.180 --> 00:18:28.000
  • Now, this is really the second time.
  • 00:18:28.010 --> 00:18:29.150
  • Goodness knows Jeremiah's got plenty to complain about,
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:32.210
  • but he's already registered a very heavy complaint earlier
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:36.050
  • in the book and the Lord was very, very tender with him
  • 00:18:36.060 --> 00:18:39.110
  • and basically said, "Listen, I'm gonna go after those
  • 00:18:39.120 --> 00:18:41.160
  • "that have hurt you.
  • 00:18:41.170 --> 00:18:43.020
  • "I'm gonna make this right.
  • 00:18:43.030 --> 00:18:44.160
  • I can tell you that. I am watching."
  • 00:18:44.170 --> 00:18:46.240
  • So, he done all this with Jeremiah, but Jeremiah
  • 00:18:46.250 --> 00:18:49.020
  • has to come at it a second time.
  • 00:18:49.030 --> 00:18:51.140
  • So, Jeremiah brings them all this complaint because some
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:53.150
  • of the family's involved in it now, and these things are
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:55.120
  • turned upside down and all this thing is happening to the land.
  • 00:18:55.130 --> 00:18:58.120
  • And so, the Lord answers him this time, and I don't know
  • 00:18:58.130 --> 00:19:01.030
  • if you feel this way, but I love that the Lord knows how to
  • 00:19:01.040 --> 00:19:04.150
  • respond to us at different times because what worked one time,
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:07.220
  • the next time we need something else entirely from him.
  • 00:19:07.230 --> 00:19:10.250
  • Like sometimes we need him to just like sweet talk us
  • 00:19:10.260 --> 00:19:12.260
  • and be very, very like, bring me some comfort.
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:16.000
  • And sometimes he goes, "You know what comfort I'm gonna give you?
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:18.090
  • "I'm about to kick your tail to next week.
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:20.240
  • I'm gonna tell you the comfort I'm about to give you."
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:23.040
  • And I need that, I need that.
  • 00:19:23.050 --> 00:19:25.140
  • I need that, and it's kind of like kick your tail to next week
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:27.220
  • for Jeremiah time because he says in verse 5,
  • 00:19:27.230 --> 00:19:30.150
  • "If you have raced with men on foot, and they have wearied
  • 00:19:30.160 --> 00:19:34.130
  • "you, how will you compete with horses?
  • 00:19:34.140 --> 00:19:37.240
  • And if in a safe land you are so trusting," and by this he means,
  • 00:19:37.250 --> 00:19:41.090
  • this is the level of your trust in the safe land?"
  • 00:19:41.100 --> 00:19:44.140
  • "Then what will you do in the thicket of the Jordan?"
  • 00:19:44.150 --> 00:19:47.160
  • Listen, we cannot change the world as it is
  • 00:19:47.170 --> 00:19:54.140
  • around us in this moment.
  • 00:19:54.150 --> 00:19:57.060
  • We cannot decide we're gonna wait around for
  • 00:19:57.070 --> 00:20:00.060
  • a different world that we're gonna minister to.
  • 00:20:00.070 --> 00:20:04.070
  • This is the one we've been given.
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:06.270
  • This is the one that we've been entrusted with the gospel
  • 00:20:06.280 --> 00:20:11.050
  • to share, and that's what changes the world.
  • 00:20:11.060 --> 00:20:15.060
  • But we're doing all this complaining.
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:17.280
  • And he's going, "Listen, if you are complaining about your
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:23.020
  • "foot race with men, what are you gonna do
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:27.010
  • "when I was gonna call you to compete with horses?
  • 00:20:27.020 --> 00:20:31.070
  • "If you're having trouble in your safe land, the thing of it
  • 00:20:31.080 --> 00:20:34.080
  • "was, I'm looking for servants that are willing to serve me
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:38.220
  • in the thicket."
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:41.040
  • And I want to say this to you,
  • 00:20:41.050 --> 00:20:43.060
  • we have to quit being such wimps.
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:48.170
  • We're calling inconvenience affliction, affliction.
  • 00:20:48.180 --> 00:20:55.180
  • We're so bothered by something down here.
  • 00:20:55.290 --> 00:20:58.270
  • We're annoying when we can't get our computer to boot up
  • 00:20:58.280 --> 00:21:02.240
  • when we need it to.
  • 00:21:02.250 --> 00:21:04.210
  • Well, how are we supposed to deal with demons,
  • 00:21:04.220 --> 00:21:07.100
  • and principalities, and the darkness
  • 00:21:07.110 --> 00:21:09.180
  • because we're complaining about life in the light?
  • 00:21:09.190 --> 00:21:13.180
  • Anybody know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:21:13.190 --> 00:21:15.050
  • If we're gonna complain, we're complaining about life
  • 00:21:15.060 --> 00:21:19.220
  • in our church in the light.
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:24.220
  • "You're gonna complain about your church when actually
  • 00:21:24.230 --> 00:21:29.280
  • "I needed you out there where it's really hard.
  • 00:21:29.290 --> 00:21:33.000
  • "You're complaining in the light, and I need to send you
  • 00:21:33.010 --> 00:21:35.180
  • "to the darkness.
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:37.020
  • Get some hair on your chest."
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:41.140
  • Well, I'm gonna try to think of a better metaphor for women.
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:48.150
  • It's not coming to me right now.
  • 00:21:48.180 --> 00:21:51.270
  • It will, it will come to me in a minute.
  • 00:21:51.280 --> 00:21:54.170
  • Does anybody hear what I'm saying?
  • 00:21:54.180 --> 00:21:56.230
  • My word, my word, it is like we're just--we're scared
  • 00:21:56.240 --> 00:22:01.060
  • of everything.
  • 00:22:01.070 --> 00:22:03.080
  • We are scared of everything.
  • 00:22:03.090 --> 00:22:04.280
  • We've got so much anxiety.
  • 00:22:04.290 --> 00:22:07.000
  • We fear failure so much, we can't even get out there
  • 00:22:07.010 --> 00:22:10.010
  • and serve.
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:11.160
  • We'll be perfect of what God's given us to do
  • 00:22:11.170 --> 00:22:13.150
  • without even trying it.
  • 00:22:13.160 --> 00:22:17.120
  • Listen, we have this long here.
  • 00:22:17.130 --> 00:22:20.030
  • Get busy.
  • 00:22:20.040 --> 00:22:21.280
  • This long here.
  • 00:22:21.290 --> 00:22:23.150
  • Let's quit complaining.
  • 00:22:23.160 --> 00:22:25.180
  • Let's quit complaining about things that the rest
  • 00:22:25.190 --> 00:22:27.180
  • of the world would call having a great day.
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:31.270
  • Can you imagine people in third world countries
  • 00:22:31.280 --> 00:22:34.200
  • looking over at us and going and let's see, let's see,
  • 00:22:34.210 --> 00:22:36.220
  • let's see, let's see.
  • 00:22:36.230 --> 00:22:38.160
  • And you were complaining about you're gonna go back
  • 00:22:38.170 --> 00:22:40.240
  • into your air conditioning, air-conditioned home.
  • 00:22:40.250 --> 00:22:43.220
  • You got shelter.
  • 00:22:43.230 --> 00:22:45.030
  • You got shoes on your feet, and you can read.
  • 00:22:45.040 --> 00:22:48.130
  • And you drove into your driveway with a car.
  • 00:22:48.140 --> 00:22:51.030
  • Okay, let's see, God bless your sweet heart.
  • 00:22:51.040 --> 00:22:55.290
  • At some point, we just gotta like reset.
  • 00:22:56.000 --> 00:23:03.000
  • Anybody know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:23:03.130 --> 00:23:05.160
  • Because this is a generation called to a very dark world.
  • 00:23:05.170 --> 00:23:09.070
  • And listen, we need to be able to compete with horses.
  • 00:23:09.080 --> 00:23:15.170
  • We're competing with one another.
  • 00:23:15.180 --> 00:23:17.120
  • He says, "I'mma tell you, I have principalities
  • 00:23:17.130 --> 00:23:21.270
  • "for you to battle.
  • 00:23:21.280 --> 00:23:24.090
  • "Stop complaining about people
  • 00:23:24.100 --> 00:23:27.060
  • and start fighting the darkness."
  • 00:23:27.070 --> 00:23:30.130
  • Anybody getting a Word from that?
  • 00:23:30.140 --> 00:23:32.120
  • Anybody getting a Word from that?
  • 00:23:32.130 --> 00:23:35.220
  • All right, here's what we're gonna say.
  • 00:23:35.230 --> 00:23:37.260
  • We're gonna lock this all together right here,
  • 00:23:37.270 --> 00:23:39.220
  • and then we're gonna start flying like this.
  • 00:23:39.230 --> 00:23:41.120
  • "What happens between God and us at his feet
  • 00:23:41.130 --> 00:23:46.060
  • has everything to do with our feet."
  • 00:23:46.070 --> 00:23:49.000
  • What happens between me and my God at the feet of Jesus
  • 00:23:49.010 --> 00:23:54.000
  • has everything to do with what's gonna happen when I then arise,
  • 00:23:54.010 --> 00:23:59.050
  • look out, and walk.
  • 00:23:59.060 --> 00:24:01.290
  • In fact, I want to challenge you.
  • 00:24:02.000 --> 00:24:03.210
  • I want to tell you something.
  • 00:24:03.220 --> 00:24:05.100
  • If you will surrender today, I mean this, test the Scriptures.
  • 00:24:05.110 --> 00:24:09.240
  • Look at it, see if this is not so.
  • 00:24:09.250 --> 00:24:13.150
  • I need you to know that your time is very limited to just
  • 00:24:13.160 --> 00:24:16.220
  • like wig out in a pit of sin if you start doing a whole lot of
  • 00:24:16.230 --> 00:24:20.230
  • life at the feet of Jesus because there's something about
  • 00:24:20.240 --> 00:24:23.280
  • being at the feet of Jesus that makes it really hard to get up
  • 00:24:23.290 --> 00:24:27.230
  • and go like walk into a ditch.
  • 00:24:27.240 --> 00:24:31.040
  • You'll only be able to do it for a little while and after a while
  • 00:24:31.050 --> 00:24:33.240
  • you're either gonna go walk in the ditch and leave God alone,
  • 00:24:33.250 --> 00:24:37.260
  • or you're gonna stay with God and you're gonna leave the ditch
  • 00:24:37.270 --> 00:24:40.180
  • alone, because there's something about living at his feet that
  • 00:24:40.190 --> 00:24:43.200
  • makes my feet want to walk in the path
  • 00:24:43.210 --> 00:24:48.140
  • that he's given me of faith.
  • 00:24:48.150 --> 00:24:50.240
  • Oh, I tell people all the time because we want people to turn
  • 00:24:50.250 --> 00:24:56.020
  • from their sins, and then come to Jesus and then just like
  • 00:24:56.030 --> 00:25:01.010
  • turn--won't they be motivated to turn from their sins before
  • 00:25:01.020 --> 00:25:04.240
  • they're invited to even know this one who is Jesus.
  • 00:25:04.250 --> 00:25:08.020
  • Come to him and turn from your sins
  • 00:25:08.030 --> 00:25:10.270
  • because I'm gonna tell you something.
  • 00:25:10.280 --> 00:25:12.100
  • I have not laid down some things that I thought I really had
  • 00:25:12.110 --> 00:25:17.210
  • a right to that I thought were dear to me.
  • 00:25:17.220 --> 00:25:20.250
  • I have not made some decisions to die to some of the things
  • 00:25:20.260 --> 00:25:23.280
  • of my flesh to be alive in his Spirit because I wanted
  • 00:25:23.290 --> 00:25:28.200
  • to be a good Christian.
  • 00:25:28.210 --> 00:25:30.170
  • I'm sorry if that disappoints you.
  • 00:25:30.180 --> 00:25:32.150
  • I have one motivation for everything, everything that goes
  • 00:25:32.160 --> 00:25:37.080
  • against the grain of my flesh.
  • 00:25:37.090 --> 00:25:39.080
  • I am crazy in love with Jesus Christ.
  • 00:25:39.090 --> 00:25:43.020
  • He makes it worth it to me.
  • 00:25:43.030 --> 00:25:45.080
  • He makes it worth it to me.
  • 00:25:45.090 --> 00:25:47.050
  • Getting to know him that suddenly it's like,
  • 00:25:47.060 --> 00:25:49.220
  • you know what?
  • 00:25:49.230 --> 00:25:51.040
  • I want to be with you so badly.
  • 00:25:51.050 --> 00:25:53.070
  • Once we taste that, that the sweetness of intimacy with him.
  • 00:25:53.080 --> 00:25:57.250
  • Once we begin to live life partaking of his presence at his
  • 00:25:57.260 --> 00:26:02.090
  • feet, that becomes so precious to us that nothing
  • 00:26:02.100 --> 00:26:05.250
  • can compete with that.
  • 00:26:05.260 --> 00:26:07.050
  • And so, because I don't want anything to take that
  • 00:26:07.060 --> 00:26:08.270
  • away from me.
  • 00:26:08.280 --> 00:26:10.070
  • That's why it's worth it to me.
  • 00:26:10.080 --> 00:26:12.260
  • Come to Jesus. Come to Jesus.
  • 00:26:12.270 --> 00:26:15.290
  • Yes, turn from our sins and come to Jesus.
  • 00:26:16.000 --> 00:26:19.120
  • But in Jesus you will find what was worth you turning from
  • 00:26:19.130 --> 00:26:25.040
  • every single bit of that so that you could live freely
  • 00:26:25.050 --> 00:26:28.090
  • and in liberation in him.
  • 00:26:28.100 --> 00:26:30.110
  • Anybody know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:26:30.120 --> 00:26:32.100
  • Because what happens between God and us at his feet
  • 00:26:32.110 --> 00:26:34.210
  • has everything to do with our feet.
  • 00:26:34.220 --> 00:26:37.280
  • Take off your shoes because the place you are standing
  • 00:26:38.090 --> 00:26:41.170
  • is holy ground.
  • 00:26:41.180 --> 00:26:44.250
  • It doesn't even matter if he's walking on the wave,
  • 00:26:44.260 --> 00:26:48.200
  • they have to be solid under his feet because the ground
  • 00:26:48.210 --> 00:26:53.100
  • under his feet is always solid.
  • 00:26:53.110 --> 00:26:56.260
  • And when I am standing in him, the ground under my feet
  • 00:26:56.270 --> 00:27:00.190
  • is completely solid, completely solid.
  • 00:27:00.200 --> 00:27:04.160
  • There are times when we feel like somebody has taken
  • 00:27:04.170 --> 00:27:06.110
  • a jackhammer to our--the concrete all around our lives
  • 00:27:06.120 --> 00:27:10.180
  • and all we have left is this size seven, or eight, or nine,
  • 00:27:10.190 --> 00:27:14.130
  • or ten little space of concrete
  • 00:27:14.140 --> 00:27:17.100
  • right under our feet, but it is held.
  • 00:27:17.110 --> 00:27:19.260
