  • 00:05:29.080 --> 00:05:31.170
  • - PRISCILLA SHIRER : WELL, IN LUKE CHAPTER 2
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:34.110
  • THERE'S A STORY WHERE THE BABY JESUS SHOWS UP
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:36.210
  • AROUND THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE AND PRETTY MUCH
  • 00:05:36.230 --> 00:05:38.120
  • NOBODY RECOGNIZES HIM BECAUSE HE'S IN A PACKAGE
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:40.210
  • THAT IS NOT WHAT THEY'RE EXPECTATIONS HAD SET UP
  • 00:05:40.230 --> 00:05:43.000
  • FOR THEM.
  • 00:05:43.020 --> 00:05:44.180
  • AND I'M JUST THINKING ABOUT ALL THE TIMES IN
  • 00:05:44.200 --> 00:05:47.250
  • LIFE WHERE THERE ARE SEASONS THAT ARE PACKAGED
  • 00:05:47.270 --> 00:05:49.220
  • IN THE SORT OF WAY WHERE WHEN HE SHOWS UP, WHEN
  • 00:05:49.240 --> 00:05:52.050
  • HIS FINGERPRINTS ON THERE, WHEN HE'S ALL
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:54.020
  • THROUGHOUT IT TRYING TO MANIFEST HIS GLORY AND
  • 00:05:54.040 --> 00:05:56.190
  • PRESENCE AND PEACE AND HIS POWER TO US BECAUSE
  • 00:05:56.210 --> 00:05:58.210
  • IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE WHAT WE WANT WE DON'T
  • 00:05:58.230 --> 00:06:00.260
  • EVEN NOTICE.
  • 00:06:00.280 --> 00:06:02.110
  • - ISN'T THAT THE TRUTH?
  • 00:06:02.130 --> 00:06:04.030
  • - YEAH, WE DON'T EVEN NOTICE THAT HE'S THERE.
  • 00:06:04.050 --> 00:06:05.130
  • AND HE'S LIKE, HELLO?
  • 00:06:05.150 --> 00:06:06.190
  • HELLO?
  • 00:06:06.210 --> 00:06:07.270
  • I KNOW IT'S A DIFFICULT SEASON OR I KNOW THIS IS
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:09.110
  • NOT WHAT YOU'D PREFER.
  • 00:06:09.130 --> 00:06:10.200
  • I KNOW THAT SINGLENESS HAS LASTED THAN YOU'D
  • 00:06:10.220 --> 00:06:12.150
  • LIKE OR YOU'VE BEEN ON THIS JOB LONGER THAN
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:13.270
  • YOU PREFER.
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:15.080
  • YOU THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE FURTHER ALONG IN SOME
  • 00:06:15.100 --> 00:06:17.010
  • OTHER AREA, BUT IF YOU'LL JUST LOOK, IT MIGHT NOT
  • 00:06:17.030 --> 00:06:18.260
  • BE PACKAGED LIKE YOU WANT BUT HERE I AM.
  • 00:06:18.280 --> 00:06:21.120
  • SO I JUST WANTED TO HONE IN ON THIS ONE PERSON WHO
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:23.260
  • OUT OF ALL THESE PEOPLE FINALLY HAS EYES TO
  • 00:06:23.280 --> 00:06:27.100
  • SEE JESUS.
  • 00:06:27.120 --> 00:06:29.180
  • WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS ONE GUY THAT OPENS HIS EYES
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:31.240
  • TO SEE THE PRESENCE OF GOD WHEN HE'S NEAR.
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:34.190
  • - WOW.
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:36.090
  • WELL, I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR THAT.
  • 00:06:36.110 --> 00:06:38.000
  • BUT ISN'T THAT TRUE, LIKE HOW WE HAVE OUR OWN IDEA
  • 00:06:38.020 --> 00:06:40.240
  • OF HOW HE SHOULD LOOK OR COME OR WHO HE IS.
  • 00:06:40.260 --> 00:06:43.000
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:44.260
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:46.150
  • I'M VERY EXCITED.
  • 00:06:46.170 --> 00:06:48.230
  • I KNOW THAT WILL BE AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO PEOPLE
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:51.000
  • BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE IN REALLY CHALLENGING
  • 00:06:51.020 --> 00:06:53.240
  • SITUATIONS, AND WE'RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING.
  • 00:06:53.260 --> 00:06:57.180
  • FOR ME, I REMEMBER BEING IN ACTUALLY NOT THAT LONG
  • 00:06:57.200 --> 00:07:01.040
  • AGO AND JUST IN THE CAR FEELING
  • 00:07:01.060 --> 00:07:02.170
  • SERIOUSLY OVERWHELMED.
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:04.030
  • YOU KNOW HOW YOU HAVE THOSE MOMENTS, AND FOR ME
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:05.240
  • IT'S THE -IT'S LIKE WHAT'S THE HARDEST FOR ME
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:08.050
  • TO NAVIGATE IS RELATIONSHIP TENSIONS, SO
  • 00:07:08.070 --> 00:07:11.020
  • WHETHER IT'S IN YOUR MARRIAGE OR CLOSE
  • 00:07:11.040 --> 00:07:14.050
  • FRIENDS, IT'S LIKE I CAN HANDLE THE FINANCIAL
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:16.170
  • TENSIONS BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE I'VE NAVIGATED OR
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:18.230
  • EVEN THE HEALTH STUFF NOW, BUT IT'S THE
  • 00:07:18.250 --> 00:07:20.280
  • RELATIONAL TENSIONS THAT BECOME VERY HARD FOR ME,
  • 00:07:21.000 --> 00:07:23.030
  • AND I JUST -- - YOU DON'T JUST WANT TO
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:25.050
  • CONFRONT IT?
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:26.230
  • - NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:28.140
  • YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF CONFRONTING IT.
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:30.190
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:07:30.210 --> 00:07:32.010
  • - SO YOU'RE WORKING THROUGH SOME STUFF SO
  • 00:07:32.030 --> 00:07:33.280
  • THAT'S FOR ME WHERE THE HEART GETS HURT, AND SO I
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:35.280
  • REMEMBER I WAS IN THE CAR AND HAVING THIS
  • 00:07:36.000 --> 00:07:37.150
  • CONVERSATION WITH MYSELF AND JUST LIKE REALLY
  • 00:07:37.170 --> 00:07:39.180
  • TRYING NOT TO CRY, YOU KNOW YOU GET THAT.
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:42.280
  • AND I KEPT THINKING WHO CAN I CALL BECAUSE I'M A
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:46.040
  • GIRLFRIEND GIRL.
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:48.010
  • WHO CAN I CALL AND TALK THROUGH THIS?
  • 00:07:48.030 --> 00:07:49.290
  • AND I FELT THE SPIRIT OF GOD SAY TO ME, WHY DON'T
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:51.290
  • YOU CRY TO ME?
  • 00:07:52.010 --> 00:07:53.190
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:07:53.210 --> 00:07:55.150
  • BECAUSE I THINK TO YOUR POINT WE ALWAYS GO
  • 00:07:55.170 --> 00:07:56.290
  • SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:07:57.010 --> 00:07:58.260
  • WE ALWAYS THINK HE SHOULD BE IN A DIFFERENT
  • 00:07:58.280 --> 00:08:00.190
  • CIRCUMSTANCE OR SITUATION, BUT IT'S IN
  • 00:08:00.210 --> 00:08:02.210
  • THOSE ONES.
  • 00:08:02.230 --> 00:08:04.070
  • - YES.
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:05.170
  • IT'S IN THOSE.
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:07.000
  • I REMEMBER BEING IN A SITUATION SIMILAR IN THE
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:08.210
  • CAR BY MYSELF, AND I MEAN WEEPING, WEEPING.
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:10.030
  • THIS IS YEARS AGO BEFORE I WAS MARRIED.
  • 00:08:10.050 --> 00:08:11.170
  • AND I HAD BEEN DATING A GUY THAT I THOUGHT I WAS
  • 00:08:11.190 --> 00:08:13.010
  • GOING TO MARRY, AND HE BROKE THAT
  • 00:08:13.030 --> 00:08:14.070
  • RELATIONSHIP OFF.
  • 00:08:14.090 --> 00:08:15.250
  • I MEAN, IT TORE MY HEART APART, AND I WAS WEEPING
  • 00:08:15.270 --> 00:08:17.110
  • SO UNCONTROLLABLY THAT I HAD TO PULL OFF TO THE
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:19.070
  • SIDE OF THE ROAD BECAUSE I COULD NOT EVEN
  • 00:08:19.090 --> 00:08:21.000
  • SEE TO DRIVE.
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:22.170
  • THAT'S HOW HARD I WAS CRYING.
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:24.060
  • AND I PULLED OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.
  • 00:08:24.080 --> 00:08:25.150
  • AND I WAS JUST THINKING I JUST DON'T KNOW WHY HE
  • 00:08:25.170 --> 00:08:26.210
  • DOESN'T WANT TO BE WITH ME.
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:28.150
  • AND THERE HAVE BEEN A HANDFUL OF TIMES PH MY
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:30.040
  • LIFE WHERE I'VE HEARD THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK SO
  • 00:08:30.060 --> 00:08:31.260
  • CLEARLY TO ME IT WAS ALMOST LIKE HE WAS IN THE

  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:42.100
  • WITH PAPER PAGES LIKE I DO.
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:45.030
  • OR YOUR I PHONE, YOUR I PAD, ANY MANNER OF I NESS
  • 00:15:45.050 --> 00:15:46.270
  • IS FINE.
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:48.240
  • IN LUKE CHAPTER 2, THERE ARE A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:15:48.260 --> 00:15:51.050
  • ARE ABOUT TO BE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD, AND
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:53.210
  • THEY'RE NOT EVEN GOING TO RECOGNIZE IT.
  • 00:15:53.230 --> 00:15:56.110
  • I WILL TELL YOU AS YOU TURN TO LUKE CHAPTER 2
  • 00:15:56.130 --> 00:15:58.260
  • THAT THE AUTHOR LUKE WROTE THIS GOSPEL AND
  • 00:15:58.280 --> 00:16:01.090
  • RECORDED THESE STORIES REALLY TO SHOW US HOW TO
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:04.060
  • HAVE AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS, TO NOT MISS HIM
  • 00:16:04.080 --> 00:16:07.020
  • WHEN HIS PRESENCE IS NEAR.
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:09.060
  • AND BY THE WAY, THIS IS OUR GOAL AS BELIEVERS.
  • 00:16:09.080 --> 00:16:11.170
  • THIS IS THE REASON WHY HE DIED ON THE CROSS OF
  • 00:16:11.190 --> 00:16:14.010
  • CALVARY, SO THAT WE COULD NOT JUST KNOW ABOUT HIM
  • 00:16:14.030 --> 00:16:17.200
  • BUT SO THAT WE CAN ENCOUNTER HIM.
  • 00:16:17.220 --> 00:16:19.290
  • WE'RE NOT JUST SUPPOSED TO READ IN THE OLD
  • 00:16:20.010 --> 00:16:22.010
  • TESTAMENT ABOUT HOW HE DIVIDED THE RED SEA OR
  • 00:16:22.030 --> 00:16:24.110
  • CAUSED THE WALLS OF JERICHO COME DOWN OR MET
  • 00:16:24.130 --> 00:16:27.030
  • WITH A MAN NAMED MOSES IN THE FORM OF A BURNING
  • 00:16:27.050 --> 00:16:30.030
  • BUSH OR SHOWED UP AS THE ANGEL OF THE LORD IN A
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:32.250
  • WINE PRESS WHILE A FEARFUL, TIMID GIDEON WAS
  • 00:16:32.270 --> 00:16:36.080
  • BEATING OUT WINE -- THRESHING WHEAT RATHER
  • 00:16:36.100 --> 00:16:37.210
  • IN THAT WINE PRESS.
  • 00:16:37.230 --> 00:16:40.220
  • WE'RE NOT JUST SUPPOSED TO READ ABOUT OTHERS THAT
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:43.160
  • HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS.
  • 00:16:43.180 --> 00:16:45.100
  • WE'RE NOT JUST SUPPOSED TO SEE AND APPLAUD AND
  • 00:16:45.120 --> 00:16:48.020
  • EXPERIENCE THE TESTIMONIES OF OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:51.160
  • THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO ENCOURAGE US TO REALIZE
  • 00:16:51.180 --> 00:16:53.140
  • THAT IF REGULAR FOLKS LIKE THAT CAN ENCOUNTER
  • 00:16:53.160 --> 00:16:55.180
  • HIM, SO CAN WE.
  • 00:16:55.200 --> 00:16:57.190
  • AND LUKE COMES ALONG, AND HE WRITES STORY AFTER
  • 00:16:57.210 --> 00:17:01.130
  • STORY IN HIS GOSPEL TO SHOW US THAT WE CAN HAVE
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:03.190
  • AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS.
  • 00:17:03.210 --> 00:17:05.220
  • THESE PEOPLE THAT HE IS WRITING TO AND THAT HE'S
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:08.270
  • WRITING ABOUT WERE IN A TIME OF NATIONAL DECAY.
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:12.050
  • THERE IS CHAOS HAPPENING AND SWIRLING AROUND THEM
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:15.180
  • MORALLY AND SOCIALLY, AND YOU AND I CAN RELATE TO
  • 00:17:15.200 --> 00:17:18.230
  • THAT BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT JUST IN A TIME OF
  • 00:17:18.250 --> 00:17:20.250
  • NATIONAL DECAY.
  • 00:17:20.270 --> 00:17:22.150
  • SO ARE WE.
  • 00:17:22.170 --> 00:17:25.060
  • OUR COUNTRY IS IN A STATE OF MORE SOCIAL DECAY AND
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:28.160
  • DECLINE THAN WE'VE EVER SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:17:28.180 --> 00:17:30.220
  • AND THE MORE GOD IS MARGINALIZED AND
  • 00:17:30.240 --> 00:17:32.210
  • SEGMENTED TO THE PERIPHERY OF SOCIETY,
  • 00:17:32.230 --> 00:17:35.030
  • THE WORSE THINGS ARE GOING TO GET.
  • 00:17:35.050 --> 00:17:37.280
  • THE MORE HE IS COMPLETELY IGNORED AND DISREGARDED,
  • 00:17:38.000 --> 00:17:40.130
  • THE MORE WE'RE GOING TO SEE THE INFLUX OF CHAOS
  • 00:17:40.150 --> 00:17:43.080
  • AND DESTRUCTION, BUT TODAY I DON'T WANT Y'ALL
  • 00:17:43.100 --> 00:17:45.280
  • TO WORRY ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE.
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:47.220
  • I WANT TO GET TO YOUR HOUSE.
  • 00:17:47.240 --> 00:17:49.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:17:49.180 --> 00:17:51.090
  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION AND THE DECAY
  • 00:17:51.110 --> 00:17:53.220
  • HAPPENING MAYBE UNDER NEAT THE ROOF OF YOUR
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:55.290
  • OWN HOME.
  • 00:17:56.010 --> 00:17:57.130
  • LUKE IS WRITING NOT JUST THEN BUT NOW TO PEOPLE
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:18:00.210
  • WHO NEED A SAVIOR, FOLKS WHO ARE WAITING ON A HERO
  • 00:18:00.230 --> 00:18:05.190
  • TO SHOW UP AND RESCUE THEM FROM THE PLIGHT OF
  • 00:18:05.210 --> 00:18:08.180
  • THEIR OWN CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:18:08.200 --> 00:18:10.230
  • LUKE WAS WRITING TO THEM, BUT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT HE
  • 00:18:10.250 --> 00:18:12.290
  • IS WRITING TO US TODAY.
  • 00:18:13.010 --> 00:18:15.030
  • FOR ANY OF YOU WHO ARE IN A STATE OF DECLINE IN
  • 00:18:15.050 --> 00:18:17.190
  • SOME AREA OF YOUR LIFE WHERE WE'RE SEEING
  • 00:18:17.210 --> 00:18:20.060
  • AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF DARKNESS THIS NEED WE
  • 00:18:20.080 --> 00:18:22.290
  • HAVE FOR THE SAVIOR TO MANIFEST HIMSELF FOR US,
  • 00:18:23.010 --> 00:18:26.200
  • TO NOT JUST KNOW ABOUT HIM FROM AFAR, APPLAUDING
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:29.290
  • HIM AND THE TESTIMONIES OF OTHER PEOPLE, BUT IF
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:33.200
  • ANYBODY WANTS TO EXPERIENCE HIM
  • 00:18:33.220 --> 00:18:35.270
  • THEMSELVES, THEN LUKE IS WRITING TO YOU.
  • 00:18:35.290 --> 00:18:39.120
  • AND I WANT SOMEBODY TO KNOW THIS TODAY, THAT
  • 00:18:39.140 --> 00:18:41.150
  • SOMETIMES, SOMETIMES YOUR DIFFICULTIES ARE LESS
  • 00:18:41.170 --> 00:18:45.120
  • ABOUT THE ENEMY BEING AGAINST YOU AND MORE
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:48.190
  • ABOUT GOD WANTING TO SHOW YOU WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:18:48.210 --> 00:18:51.200
  • WHEN HE IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:51.220 --> 00:18:54.230
  • SOMETIMES IT'S ABOUT HIM FINALLY WANTING HIS
  • 00:18:54.250 --> 00:18:57.190
  • DAUGHTERS EYES TO BE OPENED SO THAT WHEN HE
  • 00:18:57.210 --> 00:19:00.130
  • SHOWS UP THEY'RE SENSITIVE ENOUGH TO SEE HIM.
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:03.270
  • LUKE CHAPTER 2 VERSE 25.
  • 00:19:03.290 --> 00:19:07.080
  • IT SAYS AND BEHOLD, THERE WAS A MAN IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:19:07.100 --> 00:19:10.010
  • WHOSE NAME WAS SIMEON.
  • 00:19:10.030 --> 00:19:12.150
  • THIS MAN WAS RIGHTEOUS AND DEVOUT AND LOOKING
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:14.120
  • FOR THE CONSOLATION--
  • 00:19:14.140 --> 00:19:16.150
  • HE WAS LOOKING FOR SOME HOPE, YA'LL.
  • 00:19:16.170 --> 00:19:18.270
  • LOOKING FOR THE CONSOLATION OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:19:18.290 --> 00:19:21.000
  • AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS UPON HIM.
  • 00:19:21.020 --> 00:19:23.230
  • AND IT HAD BEEN REVEALED TO HIM BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:19:23.250 --> 00:19:26.040
  • THAT HE WOULD NOT SEE DEATH BEFORE HE HAD SEEN
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:29.000
  • THE LORD'S CHRIST, AND HE CAME IN THE SPIRIT INTO THE
  • 00:19:29.020 --> 00:19:33.050
  • TEMPLE. AND WHEN THE PARENTS BROUGHT IN THE CHILD,
  • 00:19:33.070 --> 00:19:36.060
  • JESUS, TO CARRY OUT FOR HIM THE CUSTOM OF THE
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:38.150
  • LAW, HE TOOK JESUS, HE WENT OVER TO THIS COUPLE,
  • 00:19:38.170 --> 00:19:42.050
  • GRABBED THIS 40 DAY OLD CHILD INTO HIS ARMS AND
  • 00:19:42.070 --> 00:19:46.070
  • HE BLESSED GOD AND SAID NOW LORD, YOU CAN LET
  • 00:19:46.090 --> 00:19:49.090
  • YOUR SERVANT DEPART IN PEACE BECAUSE ACCORDING
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:51.260
  • TO THY WORD, MY EYES HAVE SEEN YOUR SALVATION.
  • 00:19:51.280 --> 00:19:55.270
  • YOU HAVE PREPARED YOUR SALVATION IN THE PRESENCE
  • 00:19:55.290 --> 00:19:58.140
  • OF ALL THE PEOPLE, A LIGHT OF REVELATION, THE
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:20:01.120
  • GLORY OF THY PEOPLE ISRAEL, AND MARY AND
  • 00:20:01.140 --> 00:20:04.060
  • JOSEPH, THEY WERE AMAZED AT THE THINGS THAT WERE
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:07.030
  • BEING SAID ABOUT THEIR SON, JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:20:07.050 --> 00:20:12.100
  • HERE ON THIS OCCASION, MARY AND JOSEPH HAVE COME
  • 00:20:12.120 --> 00:20:14.240
  • INTO THE TEMPLE FOR THE PURIFICATION CEREMONY.
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:18.100
  • IT WAS TRADITIONAL. IT WAS CEREMONIAL.
  • 00:20:18.120 --> 00:20:20.090
  • THAT ABOUT 40 DAYS AFTER A BABY WAS BORN AND THE
  • 00:20:20.110 --> 00:20:22.170
  • PURIFICATION PROCESS HAD TAKEN PLACE THAT THE
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:25.060
  • PARENTS OF A NEW BABY WOULD BRING THEIR BABY IN
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:27.110
  • TO THE TEMPLE TO OFFER SPECIFIC SACRIFICES, A
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:30.170
  • BURNT OFFERING, A SIN OFFERING, AND JUST TO
  • 00:20:30.190 --> 00:20:33.170
  • PRESENT THEIR CHILD TO THE LORD.
  • 00:20:33.190 --> 00:20:36.050
  • NOW, TRADITIONALLY, WHEN FOLKS CAME INTO THE
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:38.190
  • TEMPLE, THEY WOULD BRING SACRIFICES, AND IF YOU
  • 00:20:38.210 --> 00:20:40.230
  • LOOK BACK INTO THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS, THE DETAILS
  • 00:20:40.250 --> 00:20:43.070
  • OF THOSE SACRIFICES ARE GIVEN.
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:45.040
  • THEY WOULD NEED TO HAVE A PIGEON FOR A PARTICULAR
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:47.150
  • SACRIFICE, THEY WOULD NEED TO HAVE A LAMB
  • 00:20:47.170 --> 00:20:49.220
  • FOR ANOTHER SACRIFICE. AND THERE IS A CAVEAT.
  • 00:20:49.240 --> 00:20:53.020
  • I'M JUST GONNA TAKE A LITTLE RABBIT TRAIL FOR A
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:54.250
  • SECOND BECAUSE I LOVE THAT YA'LL LIKE RABBIT TRAILS.
  • 00:20:54.270 --> 00:20:58.040
  • THERE'S A LITTLE CAVEAT GIVEN IN LEVITICUS
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:00.160
  • CHAPTER 12 THAT SAYS THAT IF SOMEONE IS NOT WEALTHY
  • 00:21:00.180 --> 00:21:04.080
  • ENOUGH, IF THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RESOURCES TO
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:06.210
  • ACTUALLY PURCHASE A LAMB FOR THIS SACRIFICE THAT
  • 00:21:06.230 --> 00:21:10.200
  • THEY ACTUALLY CAN JUST BRING TWO PIGEONS.
  • 00:21:10.220 --> 00:21:13.000
  • AND I DIDN'T READ ALL THE DETAILS HERE, BUT A FEW
  • 00:21:13.020 --> 00:21:15.040
  • VERSES EARLIER THAN WHERE WE STARTED IN VERSE 25,
  • 00:21:15.060 --> 00:21:18.080
  • IT TELLS US THAT MARY AND JOSEPH COME INTO THE
  • 00:21:18.100 --> 00:21:20.280
  • TEMPLE WITH TWO PIGEONS OR TWO TURTLE DOVES.
  • 00:21:21.000 --> 00:21:23.250
  • THEY DON'T HAVE A LAMB, WHICH INDICATES TO US
  • 00:21:23.270 --> 00:21:27.000
  • THAT THEY HAVE EXPENDED SO MUCH OF THEIR
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:29.040
  • RESOURCES THAT THEY ARE IN A STATE OF POVERTY, AT
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:32.120
  • LEAST ENOUGH THAT THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO AFFORD
  • 00:21:32.140 --> 00:21:35.040
  • THEIR OWN LAMB. THEY'VE GOT TWO PIGEONS.
  • 00:21:35.060 --> 00:21:37.170
  • THAT'S ALL THEY HAD TO BRING ON THIS OCCASION AS
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:40.000
  • THEY BRING THEIR NEW BABY INTO THE TABERNACLE TO
  • 00:21:40.020 --> 00:21:42.110
  • PRESENT HIM TO THE LORD.
  • 00:21:42.130 --> 00:21:44.180
  • THEY'VE GOT THESE TWO PIGEONS WHICH MEANS THAT
  • 00:21:44.200 --> 00:21:46.280
  • WHEN THEY WALKED INTO THE TEMPLE, PEOPLE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:21:47.000 --> 00:21:49.210
  • LOOKED AT THEM AND RECOGNIZED THEM AS A
  • 00:21:49.230 --> 00:21:52.070
  • COUPLE THAT HAD INSUFFICIENT FUNDS, AS A
  • 00:21:52.090 --> 00:21:56.150
  • COUPLE THAT WAS LACKING, AS A POOR COUPLE.
  • 00:21:56.170 --> 00:21:59.190
  • THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN LOOKED DOWN UPON, PEOPLE
  • 00:21:59.210 --> 00:22:01.200
  • WOULD HAVE MARGINALIZED THEM BECAUSE THEY DID NOT
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:03.230
  • HAVE THE ACCOUTREMENTS OF WEALTH THAT EVERYBODY
  • 00:22:03.250 --> 00:22:06.180
  • ELSE IN THE BUILDING HAD.
  • 00:22:06.200 --> 00:22:09.010
  • SO THEY DID NOT HAVE A LAMB, AND YET THEY HAVE
  • 00:22:09.030 --> 00:22:12.050
  • IN THEIR POSSESSION THE LAMB THAT TAKES AWAY THE
  • 00:22:12.070 --> 00:22:15.180
  • SINS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:22:15.200 --> 00:22:17.100
  • CAN I JUST SAY TO ANYBODY WHO IS IN THE ROOM AND
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:19.280
  • YOU FELT LIKE AN OUTCAST BECAUSE YOU DON'T WEAR
  • 00:22:20.000 --> 00:22:22.160
  • WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE WEARS, YOU CAN'T AFFORD
  • 00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:25.020
  • TO DRIVE WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE DRIVES, YOU DON'T
  • 00:22:25.040 --> 00:22:27.130
  • HAVE THE RESOURCES TO LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
  • 00:22:27.150 --> 00:22:30.100
  • WHERE EVERYBODY ELSE LIVES.
  • 00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:31.290
  • LISTEN MY FRIEND, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A LAMB,
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:35.070
  • YOU MIGHT BE IN THE PERFECT POSITION TO MAKE
  • 00:22:35.090 --> 00:22:37.250
  • SURE YOU HAVE INTIMACY WITH THE LAMB WHO
  • 00:22:37.270 --> 00:22:40.230
  • TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:22:40.250 --> 00:22:43.260
  • AND CAN I TELL YOU THAT SOMETIMES IT IS OUR
  • 00:22:43.280 --> 00:22:46.240
  • AFFLUENCE THAT KEEPS US FROM HAVING THE LAMB OF
  • 00:22:46.260 --> 00:22:50.070
  • GOD IN OUR GRASP, INTIMACY AND FELLOWSHIP
  • 00:22:50.090 --> 00:22:53.220
  • WITH HIM LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
  • 00:22:53.240 --> 00:22:56.000
  • THE PEOPLE THAT I HAVE MET THAT HAVE MORE OF AN
  • 00:22:56.020 --> 00:22:58.190
  • INTEGRAL, INTIMATE, ONGOING, FERVENT
  • 00:22:58.210 --> 00:23:02.250
  • PASSIONATE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST, THEY
  • 00:23:02.270 --> 00:23:05.090
  • ARE NOT THE PEOPLE SOMETIMES THAT LIVE IN
  • 00:23:05.110 --> 00:23:07.150
  • THE MANSION ON THE HILL.
  • 00:23:07.170 --> 00:23:09.120
  • IT'S THE PEOPLE IN A HUT, IN A VILLAGE, WITH
  • 00:23:09.140 --> 00:23:12.240
  • THATCHED ROOFS AND DIRT FLOORS WHO HAVE IN THEIR
  • 00:23:12.260 --> 00:23:16.110
  • DESPERATION HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:23:16.130 --> 00:23:20.210
  • AND YA'LL, I HAVE MET PEOPLE IN THIRD WORLD
  • 00:23:20.230 --> 00:23:22.190
  • COUNTRIES WHO PRAY FOR US.
  • 00:23:22.210 --> 00:23:25.190
  • OH, THEY PRAY FOR US.
  • 00:23:25.210 --> 00:23:27.200
  • THEY FEEL BAD FOR US.
  • 00:23:27.220 --> 00:23:29.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:29.260 --> 00:23:31.220
  • BECAUSE THEY SAY WE PRAY ANEMIC SELF-CENTERED PRAYERS.
  • 00:23:31.240 --> 00:23:37.080
  • THEY LISTEN TO OUR PRAYERS THAT ARE SO
  • 00:23:37.100 --> 00:23:39.080
  • FOCUSED ON HAVING MORE COMFORT THAN WE ALREADY
  • 00:23:39.100 --> 00:23:42.080
  • HAVE, WHERE IN THEIR DESPERATION THEY HAVE MET
  • 00:23:42.100 --> 00:23:46.050
  • WITH JESUS, THEY HAVE SEEN HIM WITH THEIR OWN
  • 00:23:46.070 --> 00:23:49.000
  • EYES, THEY HAVE BEEN MARKED BY THE PRESENCE OF
  • 00:23:49.020 --> 00:23:51.080
  • GOD, THEY HAVE WATCHED GOD SHOW UP IN SO MUCH
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:54.050
  • SPLENDOR AND THEY WANT THAT FOR US.
  • 00:23:54.070 --> 00:23:59.070
  • SOMETIMES, WHEN WE CAN AFFORD OUR OWN LAMB,
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:04.200
  • IT PUSHES OUT THE OPPORTUNITY AND THE
  • 00:24:04.220 --> 00:24:07.180
  • MARGIN THAT SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR THE LAMB.
  • 00:24:07.200 --> 00:24:12.210
  • COMFORTABLE PEOPLE PRAY ANEMIC PRAYERS.
  • 00:24:12.230 --> 00:24:17.190
  • IT'S DESPERATION, IT'S INSUFFICIENCY,
  • 00:24:17.210 --> 00:24:22.070
  • IT'S LACK, IT'S EMPTINESS.
  • 00:24:22.090 --> 00:24:24.000
  • WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THAT STATE WHERE LIKE
  • 00:24:24.020 --> 00:24:25.290
  • MARY AND JOSEPH YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TO BUY YOUR
  • 00:24:26.010 --> 00:24:28.080
  • OWN LAMB ANYMORE, THAT MIGHT BE THE PERFECT
  • 00:24:28.100 --> 00:24:30.260
  • SETUP FOR YOUR ENCOUNTER WITH THE LAMB OF GOD.
  • 00:24:30.280 --> 00:24:35.200
  • SO THEY'RE COMING INTO THE TEMPLE WITH THE LAMB.
  • 00:24:35.220 --> 00:24:39.210
  • HE'S IN THEIR ARMS.
  • 00:24:39.230 --> 00:24:42.060
  • THEY WALK IN TO THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:24:42.080 --> 00:24:46.030
  • YA'LL, THEY'RE A CHURCH.
  • 00:24:46.050 --> 00:24:49.040
  • THERE'S A GROUP OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING
  • 00:24:49.060 --> 00:24:51.100
  • RELIGIOUS LEADERS, PHARISEES AND SADDUCEES,
  • 00:24:51.120 --> 00:24:53.240
  • THAT HAVE ALL GATHERED AROUND, PROBABLY HUNDREDS
  • 00:24:53.260 --> 00:24:56.240
  • OF PEOPLE ALL CARRYING THEIR SACRIFICES THAT
  • 00:24:56.260 --> 00:24:59.100
  • HAVE JOINED IN ON THIS OCCASION, AND THEY'VE
  • 00:24:59.120 --> 00:25:03.090
  • BEEN WAITING, ALL OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN
  • 00:25:03.110 --> 00:25:05.130
  • WAITING ON THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:25:05.150 --> 00:25:07.290
  • THEY'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD
  • 00:25:08.010 --> 00:25:09.250
  • TO BE AT HAND.
  • 00:25:09.270 --> 00:25:11.250
  • THEY'VE BEEN WAITING ON A KING TO RIDE IN ON A
  • 00:25:11.270 --> 00:25:14.230
  • WHITE HORSE AND TO REDEEM THEM FROM ALL THAT HAS
  • 00:25:14.250 --> 00:25:17.160
  • BEEN LOST AND ALL THEY'VE LOST AS A NATION, THEY'VE
  • 00:25:17.180 --> 00:25:20.120
  • BEEN WAITING FOR SOMEBODY TO RESCUE THEM FROM THE
  • 00:25:20.140 --> 00:25:22.090
  • OPPRESSION OF ROME.
  • 00:25:22.110 --> 00:25:24.030
  • THEY HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A HERO AND THE HERO
  • 00:25:24.050 --> 00:25:28.090
  • COMES IN AND THEY DO NOT RECOGNIZE HIM.
  • 00:25:28.110 --> 00:25:33.000
  • THEY ARE AT CHURCH AND THEY DO NOT RECOGNIZE
  • 00:25:33.020 --> 00:25:38.110
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:25:38.130 --> 00:25:41.070
  • THE REASON WHY IS BECAUSE HE HAS COME IN A PACKAGE
  • 00:25:41.090 --> 00:25:44.270
  • THAT THEY DO NOT PREFER.
  • 00:25:44.290 --> 00:25:48.180
  • HE HAS COME IN A PACKAGE THAT DOES NOT ALIGN WITH
  • 00:25:48.200 --> 00:25:52.030
  • THEIR EXPECTATIONS, SO BECAUSE HE DOES NOT LOOK
  • 00:25:52.050 --> 00:25:55.260
  • LIKE WHAT THEY WANTED HIM TO LOOK LIKE, ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:25:55.280 --> 00:25:59.040
  • THEY HAD IN THEIR OWN ESTIMATION PREPARED AS
  • 00:25:59.060 --> 00:26:02.110
  • THE PACKAGE THAT WOULD BE IN THEIR ESTIMATION THE
  • 00:26:02.130 --> 00:26:04.280
  • BEST PACKAGE FOR THE KING TO ARRIVE, BECAUSE THEIR
  • 00:26:05.000 --> 00:26:07.080
  • CIRCUMSTANCE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE AND HE HAS NOT
  • 00:26:07.100 --> 00:26:11.010
  • APPEARED THE WAY THAT THEY PREFER, THEY
  • 00:26:11.030 --> 00:26:13.130
  • DOWNPLAY THE MESSIAH WHEN HE ARRIVES.
  • 00:26:13.150 --> 00:26:15.270
  • I WANT TO SUBMIT TO YOU THAT JESUS IS THERE IN
  • 00:26:15.290 --> 00:26:21.010
  • THIS DIFFICULT MOMENT IN YOUR MARRIAGE, IN THIS
  • 00:26:21.030 --> 00:26:23.230
  • TRYING MOMENT IN YOUR FINANCES, IN THE STRUGGLE
  • 00:26:23.250 --> 00:26:26.040
  • ON YOUR JOB, IN THIS DIFFICULTY IN THIS
  • 00:26:26.060 --> 00:26:28.190
  • RELATIONSHIP, YOU'RE RUBBING CORNERS WITH YOUR
  • 00:26:28.210 --> 00:26:31.070
  • BOSS, OR YOUR SPOUSE, OR THE STRUGGLE YOU'RE
  • 00:26:31.090 --> 00:26:33.160
  • HAVING ON YOUR UNIVERSITY CAMPUS, OR IN YOUR HIGH
  • 00:26:33.180 --> 00:26:35.210
  • SCHOOL CAMPUS, THIS HARD TIME THAT YOU ARE HAVING,
  • 00:26:35.230 --> 00:26:38.180
  • HE IS THERE, HE JUST MAY HAVE COME IN THE PACKAGE
  • 00:26:38.200 --> 00:26:41.230
  • YOU DON'T PREFER.
  • 00:26:41.250 --> 00:26:44.150
  • AND THAT OFTEN TIMES THE FINGERPRINTS OF GOD ARE
  • 00:26:44.170 --> 00:26:47.020
  • NOT RECOGNIZED NOT BECAUSE HE'S NOT THERE.
  • 00:26:47.040 --> 00:26:49.220
  • IT IS JUST BECAUSE THE EXPECTATION WE HAVE SET
  • 00:26:49.240 --> 00:26:52.170
  • UP ABOUT WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE AND HOW HE WILL
  • 00:26:52.190 --> 00:26:54.280
  • SPEAK AND HOW HE WILL MOVE, THE PRAYER
  • 00:26:55.000 --> 00:26:57.160
  • REQUESTS, THE SOLUTION THAT HE WILL BRING DOESN'T
  • 00:26:57.180 --> 00:27:00.260
  • ALIGN WITH THE PRAYER REQUEST THAT WE HAVE PRAYED.
  • 00:27:00.280 --> 00:27:03.200
  • WE HAVE BOXED GOD IN TO THE WAY WE WANT HIM TO
  • 00:27:03.220 --> 00:27:05.120
  • ANSWER INSTEAD OF BELIEVING THAT HIS WAYS
  • 00:27:05.140 --> 00:27:09.230
  • ARE NOT OUR WAYS, AND HIS THOUGHTS ARE NOT OUR THOUGHTS.
  • 00:27:09.250 --> 00:27:13.030
  • AS HIGH AS THE HEAVENS ARE ABOVE THE EARTH,
  • 00:27:13.050 --> 00:27:15.250
  • THAT'S HOW HIGH HIS THOUGHTS ARE ABOVE OUR
  • 00:27:15.270 --> 00:27:18.140
  • OWN, AND SO WE BOX GOD IN WHEN WE SAY LORD, ANSWER
  • 00:27:18.160 --> 00:27:22.110
  • MY REQUEST IN THIS PARTICULAR WAY.
  • 00:27:22.130 --> 00:27:24.230
  • DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU LIMIT, NOT GOD, BUT YOU
  • 00:27:24.250 --> 00:27:28.020
  • LIMIT, I LIMIT OUR EXPERIENCE OF GOD WHEN WE
  • 00:27:28.040 --> 00:27:31.110
  • SAY LORD, ANSWER MY REQUEST EXACTLY THIS WAY,
  • 00:27:31.130 --> 00:27:34.210
  • I HAVE LEARNED TO PRAY HERE LORD IS MY REQUEST,
  • 00:27:34.230 --> 00:27:37.110
  • YOU SAID THAT I CAN MAKE IT KNOWN.
  • 00:27:37.130 --> 00:27:39.020
  • HERE'S HOW I WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOU MOVE
  • 00:27:39.040 --> 00:27:40.190
  • IN MY CIRCUMSTANCE.
  • 00:27:40.210 --> 00:27:41.280
  • THANK YOU LORD THAT I CAN COME BOLDLY AND MAKE MY
  • 00:27:42.000 --> 00:27:44.090
  • REQUEST KNOWN, SO I'VE MADE MY REQUEST.
  • 00:27:44.110 --> 00:27:47.000
  • BUT AT THE END OF THAT PRAYER I'VE LEARNED TO
  • 00:27:47.020 --> 00:27:48.230
  • PRAY LORD, DO IT OR DO SOMETHING BETTER.
  • 00:27:48.250 --> 00:27:52.090
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:27:52.110 --> 00:27:56.280
  • BECAUSE DO YOU KNOW THERE ARE CATEGORIES OF OPTIONS
  • 00:27:57.000 --> 00:28:01.160
  • THAT OUR BRAIN DOESN'T EVEN KNOW ARE AVAILABLE
  • 00:28:01.180 --> 00:28:05.080
  • AND ACCESSIBLE TO US, AND IF WE LIMIT GOD TO WHAT
  • 00:28:05.100 --> 00:28:08.000
  • WE CAN THINK AND WHAT WE SEE AS THE WAY, WE HAVE
  • 00:28:08.020 --> 00:28:11.230
  • NOT EVEN CONSIDERED THE CATEGORIES OF OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:28:11.250 --> 00:28:16.080
  • THAT THIS DIVINE HOLY ALMIGHTY BEING HAS
  • 00:28:16.100 --> 00:28:19.270
  • ACCESSIBLE TO HIM.
  • 00:28:19.290 --> 00:28:21.220
  • YA'LL, HE'S NOT JUST THINKING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:28:21.240 --> 00:28:23.200
  • HE'S THINKING ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR
  • 00:28:23.220 --> 00:28:25.250
  • GRANDCHILDREN AND YOUR GREAT GRANDCHILDREN AND
  • 00:28:25.270 --> 00:28:28.190
  • THOSE THAT ARE TO COME AND HOW HIS KINGDOM
  • 00:28:28.210 --> 00:28:30.250
  • PURPOSES ARE GONNA BE OUT WORKED IN THIS GENERATION.
  • 00:28:30.270 --> 00:28:34.140
  • SO ON THIS OCCASION, THE MESSIAH SHOWS UP AND
  • 00:28:34.160 --> 00:28:36.260
  • NOBODY RECOGNIZES HIM EXCEPT-- SOMEBODY SAY EXCEPT.
  • 00:28:36.280 --> 00:28:40.140
  • - AUDIENCE: EXCEPT.
  • 00:28:40.160 --> 00:28:42.120
  • - EXCEPT A GUY NAMED SIMEON.
  • 00:28:42.140 --> 00:28:45.200
  • HE HAD BEEN TOLD AND PROMISED JUST LIKE WE
  • 00:28:45.220 --> 00:28:49.240
  • HAVE THAT HE WOULD SEE THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF
  • 00:28:49.260 --> 00:28:55.230
  • GOD. HE'D BEEN TOLD.
  • 00:28:55.250 --> 00:28:58.030
  • HE'D BEEN PROMISED JUST LIKE WE'VE BEEN PROMISED
  • 00:28:58.050 --> 00:29:01.130
  • BECAUSE OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
  • 00:29:01.150 --> 00:29:03.060
  • THROUGH CHRIST JESUS, THE HOLY SPIRIT INDWELLING US
  • 00:29:03.080 --> 00:29:06.060
  • THAT WE WILL SEE THE FINGERPRINTS OF GOD
  • 00:29:06.080 --> 00:29:09.070
  • WORKING IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:29:09.090 --> 00:29:11.060
  • THIS IS CALLED THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:29:11.080 --> 00:29:14.100
  • IT IS UNIQUE TO OMNIPRESENCE.
  • 00:29:14.120 --> 00:29:17.230
  • OMNIPRESENCE MEANS THAT GOD IS EVERYWHERE
  • 00:29:17.250 --> 00:29:19.190
  • ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:29:19.210 --> 00:29:21.230
  • I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR GOD'S OMNIPRESENCE BECAUSE
  • 00:29:21.250 --> 00:29:23.260
  • GOD'S OMNIPRESENCE MEANS THAT WHEN I FLY BACK TO
  • 00:29:23.280 --> 00:29:26.110
  • DALLAS WHERE I LIVE, WHEN MY NEW FRIENDS THAT I
  • 00:29:26.130 --> 00:29:28.280
  • JUST MET FROM UGANDA FLY BACK TO WHERE THEY LIVE,
  • 00:29:29.000 --> 00:29:31.170
  • THAT WHEN YOU ALL FLY BACK TO WHEREVER IT IS
  • 00:29:31.190 --> 00:29:34.130
  • YOU'VE COME FROM, WHETHER ALL OVER DIFFERENT AREAS
  • 00:29:34.150 --> 00:29:36.180
  • OF CALIFORNIA OR AFAR, IT MEANS THAT NO MATTER
  • 00:29:36.200 --> 00:29:39.180
  • WHERE WE GO, HE IS AS MUCH WITH ME AS HE IS
  • 00:29:39.200 --> 00:29:42.260
  • WITH YOU, BECAUSE HE IS OMNIPRESENT.
  • 00:29:42.280 --> 00:29:47.040
  • BUT IF YOU'RE ANYTHING LIKE ME, YOU'RE GRATEFUL
  • 00:29:47.060 --> 00:29:48.250
  • FOR HIS OMNIPRESENCE, BUT YOU WANT MORE THAN THAT.
  • 00:29:48.270 --> 00:29:51.250
  • YOU WANT THE MANIFESTED PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:29:51.270 --> 00:29:55.010
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT WHERE YOU CAN LOOK BACK OVER
  • 00:29:55.030 --> 00:29:56.290
  • YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES AND REALIZE THAT HIS FINGER-
  • 00:29:57.010 --> 00:29:59.120
  • PRINTS WERE ALL THROUGHOUT THAT THING.
  • 00:29:59.140 --> 00:30:01.170
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT WHERE YOU CAN SEE FOOTPRINTS IN
  • 00:30:01.190 --> 00:30:03.240
  • THE SAND AS YOU ACTUALLY RECOGNIZE THAT GOD WAS
  • 00:30:03.260 --> 00:30:06.220
  • WALKING BESIDE YOU THE WHOLE WAY.
  • 00:30:06.240 --> 00:30:08.200
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE CALL
  • 00:30:08.220 --> 00:30:10.230
  • COINCIDENCE ENCOUNTERS, YOU SEE THE SOVEREIGN
  • 00:30:10.250 --> 00:30:13.170
  • HAND OF GOD THAT WAS ALIGNING YOUR FOOTSTEPS
  • 00:30:13.190 --> 00:30:16.160
  • AND SETTING YOU IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE EXACT
  • 00:30:16.180 --> 00:30:18.290
  • RIGHT TIME. THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD.
  • 00:30:19.010 --> 00:30:22.290
  • I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT MADE SIMEON'S EYES OPENED
  • 00:30:23.010 --> 00:30:26.000
  • TO RECOGNIZE WHAT NOBODY ELSE IN THIS SCENARIO DID.
  • 00:30:26.020 --> 00:30:29.070
  • I FIGURED WHATEVER OPENED UP HIS EYES MIGHT OPEN UP
  • 00:30:29.090 --> 00:30:31.140
  • OUR EYES AS WELL. ARE YOU READY?
  • 00:30:31.160 --> 00:30:34.000
  • THREE THINGS THAT I WANT TO POINT OUT TO YOU.
  • 00:30:34.020 --> 00:30:35.260
  • IT SAYS IN VERSE 26 ABOUT SIMEON, IT SAYS THAT IT
  • 00:30:35.280 --> 00:30:39.190
  • HAD BEEN-- ACTUALLY VERSE 25. I WANT TO START THERE.
  • 00:30:39.210 --> 00:30:43.040
  • THERE WAS A MAN IN JERUSALEM WHOSE NAME WAS SIMEON.
  • 00:30:43.060 --> 00:30:45.090
  • HE WAS RIGHTEOUS, DEVOUT, LOOKING FOR THE
  • 00:30:45.110 --> 00:30:48.000
  • CONSOLATION OF ISRAEL. WE COULD SPEND A
  • 00:30:48.020 --> 00:30:49.250
  • WHOLE LOT OF TIME ON THOSE THREE BUT HERE'S
  • 00:30:49.270 --> 00:30:51.110
  • WHAT I WANT TO HEARKEN.
  • 00:30:51.130 --> 00:30:53.120
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS UPON HIM.
  • 00:30:53.140 --> 00:30:58.090
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS UPON HIM.
  • 00:30:58.110 --> 00:31:02.100
  • IT SAYS THAT HE CAME IN TO THE TEMPLE, VERSE 27,
  • 00:31:02.120 --> 00:31:08.020
  • IN THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:31:08.040 --> 00:31:11.090
  • VERSE 26 SAYS IT HAD BEEN REVEALED TO HIM
  • 00:31:11.110 --> 00:31:14.230
  • BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:31:14.250 --> 00:31:17.240
  • LOOK AT THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:31:17.260 --> 00:31:19.120
  • PERMEATING THIS TEXT.
  • 00:31:19.140 --> 00:31:20.290
  • LOOK AT HOW THE AUTHOR HAS OVER AND OVER AND
  • 00:31:21.010 --> 00:31:23.280
  • OVER AGAIN HIGHLIGHTED THE WORK OF THE HOLY
  • 00:31:24.000 --> 00:31:26.210
  • SPIRIT IN OPENING UP SIMEON'S EYES TO BE ABLE
  • 00:31:26.230 --> 00:31:29.290
  • TO RECOGNIZE THE MANIFESTIVE PRESENCE OF
  • 00:31:30.010 --> 00:31:32.220
  • GOD BEFORE HIM IN THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:31:32.240 --> 00:31:35.250
  • LUKE, HERE HE IS JUST IN THE SECOND CHAPTER OF
  • 00:31:35.270 --> 00:31:39.100
  • THIS BOOK AND BY THE WAY, JUST IN THESE FIRST TWO
  • 00:31:39.120 --> 00:31:41.210
  • CHAPTERS HE HAS ALREADY ELUDED TO THE SPIRIT TEN TIMES.
  • 00:31:41.230 --> 00:31:45.290
  • THE WORK OF GOD'S SPIRIT IS SO POWERFUL AND SO
  • 00:31:46.010 --> 00:31:49.070
  • NEEDFUL TO A FRUITFUL EXPERIENCE IN THE LIFE OF
  • 00:31:49.090 --> 00:31:51.170
  • THE BELIEVER THAT EVEN BEFORE THE BOOK OF ACTS,
  • 00:31:51.190 --> 00:31:55.000
  • EVEN BEFORE PENTECOST, EVEN BEFORE THE SPIRIT
  • 00:31:55.020 --> 00:31:57.260
  • HAS COME, LUKE POINTS OUT THE MOVEMENT OF THE
  • 00:31:57.280 --> 00:32:01.190
  • SPIRIT HERE IN THE LIFE OF SIMEON.
  • 00:32:01.210 --> 00:32:03.260
  • THIS SHOWS YOU HOW IMPORTANT THE SPIRIT'S
  • 00:32:03.280 --> 00:32:06.030
  • WORK IS, HOW CRITICAL IT IS TO MAKING SURE THAT
  • 00:32:06.050 --> 00:32:09.140
  • YOUR SPIRITUAL SENSES, YOUR SPIRITUAL RADAR IS
  • 00:32:09.160 --> 00:32:13.160
  • HEIGHTENED SO THAT YOU CAN DETECT THE PRESENCE
  • 00:32:13.180 --> 00:32:16.010
  • OF GOD. THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS UPON HIM.
  • 00:32:16.030 --> 00:32:20.080
  • NOW, I WANT YOU TO SEE THE WORK OF GOD'S SPIRIT,
  • 00:32:20.100 --> 00:32:22.160
  • THIS IS JUST THE FIRST CHARACTERISTIC OF SIMEON
  • 00:32:22.180 --> 00:32:25.060
  • BUT I WANT TO JUST TAKE SOME TIME FOR JUST
  • 00:32:25.080 --> 00:32:27.070
  • A FEW MOMENTS ON IT.
  • 00:32:27.090 --> 00:32:29.030
  • THE WORK OF GOD'S SPIRIT IS SO IMPORTANT, IT
  • 00:32:29.050 --> 00:32:30.280
  • DESERVES A LITTLE BIT OF OUR ATTENTION HERE.
  • 00:32:31.000 --> 00:32:33.100
  • THERE ARE THREE WAYS THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS
  • 00:32:33.120 --> 00:32:35.200
  • DESCRIBED AS RELATING TO SIMEON IN THESE FEW VERSES.
  • 00:32:35.220 --> 00:32:40.140
  • JUST A FEW WAYS THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT RELATES TO
  • 00:32:40.160 --> 00:32:43.150
  • SIMEON IN THESE FEW VERSES.
  • 00:32:43.170 --> 00:32:45.240
  • THE FIRST THING IT SAYS IS THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:32:45.260 --> 00:32:47.270
  • WAS UPON HIM.
  • 00:32:47.290 --> 00:32:49.260
  • NOW LISTEN, I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IF YOU HAVE
  • 00:32:49.280 --> 00:32:51.220
  • PLACED FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:32:51.240 --> 00:32:53.260
  • LIVES ON THE INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:32:53.280 --> 00:32:56.020
  • EPHESIANS CHAPTER 1 SAYS THAT THE MOMENT YOU
  • 00:32:56.040 --> 00:32:59.080
  • BELIEVE YOU RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:32:59.100 --> 00:33:03.030
  • YOU WERE SEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE.
  • 00:33:03.050 --> 00:33:06.040
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT AT THE MOMENT YOU BECAME
  • 00:33:06.060 --> 00:33:07.250
  • A BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST, YOU RECEIVED THE
  • 00:33:07.270 --> 00:33:10.160
  • MOST INCREDIBLE GIFT YOU WILL EVER RECEIVE THIS
  • 00:33:10.180 --> 00:33:13.120
  • SIDE OF ETERNITY, AND THAT IS THE VERY PRESENCE
  • 00:33:13.140 --> 00:33:16.110
  • OF GOD LIVING ON THE INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:33:16.130 --> 00:33:19.030
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT A GHOST OR A WIND
  • 00:33:19.050 --> 00:33:22.020
  • OR A FIRE OR A DOVE.
  • 00:33:22.040 --> 00:33:24.110
  • HE IS OFTEN SYMBOLIZED BY THOSE THINGS BUT
  • 00:33:24.130 --> 00:33:26.190
  • DON'T MINIMIZE HIM. THAT AIN'T WHO HE IS.
  • 00:33:26.210 --> 00:33:29.030
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE THIRD PERSON OF THE TRINITY.
  • 00:33:29.050 --> 00:33:32.110
  • NOT THIRD BECAUSE HE IS LEAST IN VALUE.
  • 00:33:32.130 --> 00:33:34.290
  • JUST THIRD BECAUSE HE'S THE LAST TO BE REVEALED
  • 00:33:35.010 --> 00:33:37.140
  • TO US IN THE PAGES OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:33:37.160 --> 00:33:39.150
  • BUT ALL OF THE POWER, ALL OF THE GLORY, ALL OF THE
  • 00:33:39.170 --> 00:33:42.200
  • AUTHORITY, ALL OF THE GRANDEUR OF GOD THE
  • 00:33:42.220 --> 00:33:45.120
  • FATHER IS IN THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:33:45.140 --> 00:33:47.270
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:33:47.290 --> 00:33:50.080
  • WHICH MEANS IF YOU'RE A BELIEVER AND THE HOLY
  • 00:33:50.100 --> 00:33:53.210
  • SPIRIT LIVES IN YOU, THAT MEANS ALL OF THE GRANDEUR
  • 00:33:53.230 --> 00:33:57.010
  • AND ALL OF THE GREATNESS, ALL OF THE AUTHORITY OF
  • 00:33:57.030 --> 00:33:59.120
  • GOD HIMSELF NOW LIVES ON THE INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:33:59.140 --> 00:34:03.130
  • SO IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER, YOU HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:34:03.150 --> 00:34:07.210
  • YOU ARE NOT WAITING ON MORE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:34:07.230 --> 00:34:11.040
  • ALL THE HOLY SPIRIT YOU EVER GONNA GET, YOU GOT
  • 00:34:11.060 --> 00:34:13.150
  • THE MOMENT YOU GOT SAVED.
  • 00:34:13.170 --> 00:34:15.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:34:15.130 --> 00:34:17.100
  • NOW, YOU DO NEED TO BE FILLED BY GOD'S SPIRIT SO
  • 00:34:17.120 --> 00:34:21.070
  • THAT HIS INFLUENCE IN YOUR LIFE GROWS AND GROWS
  • 00:34:21.090 --> 00:34:24.270
  • SO THAT YOU OPERATE UNDER THE GIFTING OF THE SPIRIT
  • 00:34:24.290 --> 00:34:27.140
  • SO THAT YOU CAN LIVE ACCORDING TO THE
  • 00:34:27.160 --> 00:34:29.080
  • FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:34:29.100 --> 00:34:30.170
  • THAT MEANS LIVING BEYOND YOUR NATURAL CAPACITY.
  • 00:34:30.190 --> 00:34:33.290
  • IT MEANS WHEN YOUR PATIENCE RUNS OUT, YOU
  • 00:34:34.010 --> 00:34:36.020
  • CAN STILL HAVE MORE PATIENCE WITH THAT PERSON.
  • 00:34:36.040 --> 00:34:38.090
  • IT MEANS WHEN GENTLENESS HAS LONG SENSE LEFT THE
  • 00:34:38.110 --> 00:34:41.030
  • BUILDING, YOU STILL FIND YOU GOT A LITTLE GENTLENESS.
  • 00:34:41.050 --> 00:34:45.040
  • WHEN SELF-DISCIPLINE, I MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:34:45.060 --> 00:34:47.020
  • NO MORE SELF-DISCIPLINE IN THAT AREA.
  • 00:34:47.040 --> 00:34:49.250
  • WE NEED THE FRUIT OF GOD'S SPIRIT.
  • 00:34:49.270 --> 00:34:52.110
  • SO WE NEED TO BE FILLED BY THE SPIRIT AS WE YIELD
  • 00:34:52.130 --> 00:34:54.220
  • TO HIM IN OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:34:54.240 --> 00:34:56.130
  • WE ARE FILLED WHICH MEANS HE INFLUENCES US MORE.
  • 00:34:56.150 --> 00:35:00.110
  • OUR MIND IS RENEWED AND TRANSFORMED, WE ARE
  • 00:35:00.130 --> 00:35:03.000
  • SANCTIFIED INTO THE IMAGE OF CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:35:03.020 --> 00:35:06.170
  • SO THE HOLY SPIRIT IS IN YOU.
  • 00:35:06.190 --> 00:35:12.150
  • SIMEON, HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SPIRIT IS NOT
  • 00:35:12.170 --> 00:35:15.240
  • DESCRIBED IN THAT WAY.
  • 00:35:15.260 --> 00:35:18.070
  • IT DOESN'T SAY THAT THE SPIRIT WAS IN HIM.
  • 00:35:18.090 --> 00:35:20.260
  • IT SAYS THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS ON HIM.
  • 00:35:20.280 --> 00:35:25.140
  • WHICH MEANS THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE
  • 00:35:25.160 --> 00:35:28.190
  • SPIRIT BEING IN YOU AND THE SPIRIT RESTING ON YOU.
  • 00:35:28.210 --> 00:35:36.060
  • LISTEN TO ME. THE GIFT OF GOD'S SPIRIT IN YOU--
  • 00:35:36.080 --> 00:35:40.050
  • OH, THIS BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES.
  • 00:35:40.070 --> 00:35:42.260
  • THE GIFT OF GOD'S SPIRIT IN YOU, HE WILL NEVER
  • 00:35:42.280 --> 00:35:47.030
  • LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU.
  • 00:35:47.050 --> 00:35:49.020
  • THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO WORK YOURSELF OUT
  • 00:35:49.040 --> 00:35:52.110
  • OF A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:35:52.130 --> 00:35:55.080
  • BUT HIM BEING ON YOU, YOU GOTTA LIVE A LIFE-- LIKE
  • 00:35:55.100 --> 00:36:01.210
  • I WANT TO LIVE A LIFE THAT IS A MAGNET FOR
  • 00:36:01.230 --> 00:36:04.220
  • THE PRESENCE OF GOD TO REST ON ME.
  • 00:36:04.240 --> 00:36:08.220
  • WE CAN SIT IN THIS CONFERENCE UNTIL WE'RE
  • 00:36:08.240 --> 00:36:10.120
  • BLUE IN THE FACE AND APPLAUD THE TRUTHS OF GOD
  • 00:36:10.140 --> 00:36:13.060
  • AND SAY AMEN TO THE TRUTHS OF GOD, BUT IF WE
  • 00:36:13.080 --> 00:36:15.230
  • LEAVE THIS ROOM AND LIVE IN A WAY THAT IS OUT OF
  • 00:36:15.250 --> 00:36:20.170
  • ALIGNMENT WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD, WE WILL NOT HAVE
  • 00:36:20.190 --> 00:36:23.180
  • THE SPIRIT RESTING ON US.
  • 00:36:23.200 --> 00:36:28.050
  • IF YOU WANT THE MARK OF GOD'S PRESENCE ON YOU,
  • 00:36:28.070 --> 00:36:31.190
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT WHERE OTHER PEOPLE CAN SEE YOU
  • 00:36:31.210 --> 00:36:34.260
  • OPERATING IN YOUR GIFT, MOVING ABOUT IN THE
  • 00:36:34.280 --> 00:36:37.140
  • ASSIGNMENTS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN WHERE THEY CAN
  • 00:36:37.160 --> 00:36:39.290
  • JUST SEE THERE'S A UNIQUE FAVOR ON YOUR LIFE TOWARD
  • 00:36:40.010 --> 00:36:43.000
  • THAT PARTICULAR TASK OR THAT PARTICULAR ENDEAVOR,
  • 00:36:43.020 --> 00:36:46.230
  • WHERE YOU ARE MARKED BY SOMETHING THAT GIVES YOU
  • 00:36:46.250 --> 00:36:48.260
  • FAVOR, THAT GIVES YOU HIS GRACE FOR A PARTICULAR
  • 00:36:48.280 --> 00:36:52.060
  • AREA OF YOUR LIFE, THEN YOU MUST LIVE, I MUST
  • 00:36:52.080 --> 00:36:55.040
  • CHOOSE TO LIVE IN A WAY THAT HONORS GOD SO THAT
  • 00:36:55.060 --> 00:36:58.150
  • GOD'S PRESENCE CAN REST UPON US.
  • 00:36:58.170 --> 00:37:03.000
  • BECAUSE HE WILL NOT FORCE HIMSELF ON YOU.
  • 00:37:03.020 --> 00:37:06.040
  • HE OFFERS YOU THIS RESTING OF HIS PRESENCE
  • 00:37:06.060 --> 00:37:09.160
  • AND HIS GRACE UPON YOUR LIFE IF YOU WILL CHOOSE
  • 00:37:09.180 --> 00:37:12.050
  • TO LIVE IN A WAY THAT DOES NOT DISTURB HIS
  • 00:37:12.070 --> 00:37:15.180
  • PRESENCE, THAT DOES NOT KEEP HIM FROM BEING ABLE
  • 00:37:15.200 --> 00:37:18.090
  • TO BE NEAR YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE CHOSEN,
  • 00:37:18.110 --> 00:37:21.010
  • HERE IT IS, TO BE HOLY.
  • 00:37:21.030 --> 00:37:25.130
  • LISTEN TO ME. ARE YOU LISTENING?
  • 00:37:25.150 --> 00:37:29.250
  • WE LIVE IN A DAY AND AGE WHERE WE HAVE BECOME MORE
  • 00:37:29.270 --> 00:37:34.240
  • INTERESTED IN BEING IMPRESSIVE THAN BEING
  • 00:37:34.260 --> 00:37:38.190
  • HOLY, WHERE WE ARE MORE INTERESTED IN MAKING SURE
  • 00:37:38.210 --> 00:37:42.170
  • WE HAVE LIKES AND FRIENDS AND THE APPLAUSE OF
  • 00:37:42.190 --> 00:37:48.010
  • PEOPLE MORE THAN JUST BEING FLAT OUT HOLY.
  • 00:37:48.030 --> 00:37:53.170
  • BY MAKING SURE THAT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS
  • 00:37:53.190 --> 00:37:56.160
  • NOT OUR MAIN GOAL, THAT WE'RE NOT AFTER THE
  • 00:37:56.180 --> 00:38:00.020
  • APPLAUSE OF PEOPLE, WE'RE AFTER THE APPLAUSE OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:38:00.040 --> 00:38:04.260
  • YOU'VE GOT TO CHOOSE TO BE YE HOLY.
  • 00:38:04.280 --> 00:38:09.110
  • SO I IMPLORE YOU SISTERS BY THE MERCIES OF GOD TO
  • 00:38:09.130 --> 00:38:13.080
  • WALK IN A MANNER WORTHY OF THE CALLING BY WHICH
  • 00:38:13.100 --> 00:38:17.140
  • YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED.
  • 00:38:17.160 --> 00:38:19.050
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:38:19.070 --> 00:38:21.280
  • SO THE SPIRIT RESTED UPON HIM.
  • 00:38:22.000 --> 00:38:24.080
  • LET ME JUST SHOW YOU QUICKLY VERSE 26 SAYS
  • 00:38:24.100 --> 00:38:26.020
  • THAT THE SPIRIT REVEALED TO HIM.
  • 00:38:26.040 --> 00:38:28.240
  • SO THAT MEANS THE SPIRIT NOT ONLY RESTED UPON HIM.
  • 00:38:28.260 --> 00:38:31.140
  • THE SPIRIT'S REVEALED TO HIM.
  • 00:38:31.160 --> 00:38:33.000
  • OLD PREACHERS CALLED THIS ILLUMINATION.
  • 00:38:33.020 --> 00:38:36.250
  • IT'S SHINING A SPOTLIGHT.
  • 00:38:36.270 --> 00:38:38.170
  • IT'S WHEN YOU'RE SITTING IN CHURCH ON A SUNDAY,
  • 00:38:38.190 --> 00:38:40.240
  • AND YOUR PASTOR OPENS UP THE BIBLE TO PREACH, AND
  • 00:38:40.260 --> 00:38:42.240
  • MAN, HE JUST READS OR SHE READS THAT FIRST TWO
  • 00:38:42.260 --> 00:38:45.040
  • VERSE THAT'S THEY'RE GOING TO BE PREACHING
  • 00:38:45.060 --> 00:38:47.060
  • FROM, AND YOU SIT STRAIGHT UP IN YOUR SEAT
  • 00:38:47.080 --> 00:38:48.290
  • BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:38:49.010 --> 00:38:51.090
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:38:51.110 --> 00:38:53.110
  • ANYBODY KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:38:53.130 --> 00:38:54.210
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:38:54.230 --> 00:38:56.140
  • IT'S WHERE YOU'RE DRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW
  • 00:38:56.160 --> 00:38:58.090
  • -- DID THE CHURCH BUG MY HOUSE?
  • 00:38:58.110 --> 00:38:59.210
  • HOW DID THEY KNOW?
  • 00:38:59.230 --> 00:39:01.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:39:01.080 --> 00:39:03.020
  • THAT'S THE ILLUMINATION OF THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:39:03.040 --> 00:39:05.270
  • IT'S WHEN THE OLD TRUTHS OF SCRIPTURE LEAP UP OFF
  • 00:39:05.290 --> 00:39:10.040
  • THE PAGE, AND FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD, IT'S WHEN
  • 00:39:10.060 --> 00:39:13.240
  • THEY GRIP YOU IN YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:39:13.260 --> 00:39:15.180
  • WHEN YOU SEE HOW THAT INTERSECTS WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:39:15.200 --> 00:39:18.140
  • YOU ARE PERSONALLY FACING TODAY, THAT IS THE
  • 00:39:18.160 --> 00:39:20.240
  • REVELATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:39:20.260 --> 00:39:22.200
  • THIS IS WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES.
  • 00:39:22.220 --> 00:39:25.050
  • HE REVEALS.
  • 00:39:25.070 --> 00:39:26.190
  • HE ILLUMINATES.
  • 00:39:26.210 --> 00:39:28.050
  • HE SHINES A SPOTLIGHT.
  • 00:39:28.070 --> 00:39:29.240
  • SIMEON WAS THERE THAT DAY BECAUSE HE HAD BEEN
  • 00:39:29.260 --> 00:39:33.000
  • PROMISED BY THE REVELATION OF GOD'S SPIRIT.
  • 00:39:33.020 --> 00:39:35.260
  • IT WASN'T JUST A RANDOM PROMISE.
  • 00:39:35.280 --> 00:39:37.110
  • IT WAS HIS PROMISE.
  • 00:39:37.130 --> 00:39:39.080
  • OH, YOU'VE HAD THAT HAPPEN OVER THE COURSE OF
  • 00:39:39.100 --> 00:39:41.030
  • THESE DAYS THAT WE'VE BEEN GATHERED.
  • 00:39:41.050 --> 00:39:42.290
  • YOU'VE PROBABLY HAD THAT HAPPEN, WHERE SOMETHING
  • 00:39:43.010 --> 00:39:45.010
  • THAT HAS BEEN SAID, IT WASN'T JUST GREAT TO HEAR
  • 00:39:45.030 --> 00:39:47.230
  • IT. IT GRIPPED YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:39:47.250 --> 00:39:50.030
  • YOU KNEW IT WAS AN ASSIGNMENT FOR YOU.
  • 00:39:50.050 --> 00:39:52.010
  • IT WAS A CONVICTION THAT YOU KNEW THE LORD WAS
  • 00:39:52.030 --> 00:39:54.090
  • GOING TO SEND YOU OUT OF HERE WITH THAT ASSIGNMENT
  • 00:39:54.110 --> 00:39:56.270
  • BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT REVEALED IT TO YOU.
  • 00:39:56.290 --> 00:40:00.180
  • GOD'S SPIRIT RESTS, HE REVEALS, AND THEN HE
  • 00:40:00.200 --> 00:40:03.110
  • RULED SIMEON BECAUSE IT SAYS IN VERSE 27 THAT HE
  • 00:40:03.130 --> 00:40:07.110
  • CAME IN THE SPIRIT TO THE TEMPLE, MEANING THE
  • 00:40:07.130 --> 00:40:10.210
  • SPIRIT TOLD HIM ON THIS DAY TO GO INTO THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:40:10.230 --> 00:40:13.160
  • AND IT SAYS THAT HE CAME INTO THE TEMPLE UNDER THE
  • 00:40:13.180 --> 00:40:17.110
  • CONVICTION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:40:17.130 --> 00:40:19.260
  • WHEN THE SPIRIT SAID "GO", SIMEON SAID "YES,
  • 00:40:19.280 --> 00:40:25.220
  • SIR." HE SUBMITTED TO THE LEADERSHIP OF THE HOLY
  • 00:40:25.240 --> 00:40:30.150
  • SPIRIT, AND HE WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT
  • 00:40:30.170 --> 00:40:34.220
  • TIME TO RUN SMACK DAB INTO THE MESSIAH BECAUSE
  • 00:40:34.240 --> 00:40:37.270
  • HE WAS SUBMITTED TO THE LEADERSHIP OF THE HOLY
  • 00:40:37.290 --> 00:40:40.130
  • SPIRIT.
  • 00:40:40.150 --> 00:40:43.050
  • DO YOU KNOW THAT THE MORE YOU IGNORE THAT STILL,
  • 00:40:43.070 --> 00:40:46.100
  • SMALL CONVICTION, THE QUIETER THAT VOICE WILL BECOME?
  • 00:40:46.120 --> 00:40:49.240
  • NOT BECAUSE HE IS NO LONGER SPEAKING, BUT
  • 00:40:49.260 --> 00:40:52.060
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE BUILT A CALLOUS OF DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:40:52.080 --> 00:40:55.110
  • YOU HAVE MUFFLED THE VOICE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:40:55.130 --> 00:40:58.220
  • SO IT IS BETTER TO BE SO SENSITIVE TO GOD'S HOLY
  • 00:40:58.240 --> 00:41:02.030
  • SPIRIT THAT SOMETIMES, YOU GIVE WHEN MAYBE HE
  • 00:41:02.050 --> 00:41:05.080
  • HASN'T EVEN PROMPTED YOU TO GIVE, BUT IT'S OKAY
  • 00:41:05.100 --> 00:41:07.060
  • BECAUSE TO THE BEST OF YOUR CAPACITY, YOU'RE
  • 00:41:07.080 --> 00:41:09.060
  • OBEYING THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD JUST TO KEEP THOSE
  • 00:41:09.080 --> 00:41:12.110
  • AIRWAVES OPEN AND CLEAR TO THE DISOBEDIENCE
  • 00:41:12.130 --> 00:41:15.200
  • THAT WILL BEGIN TO MUFFLE HIS VOICE IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:41:15.220 --> 00:41:19.120
  • BECAUSE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, THE ENEMY
  • 00:41:19.140 --> 00:41:21.170
  • WANTS YOU DISCONNECTED FROM THE PRIVILEGE OF
  • 00:41:21.190 --> 00:41:25.080
  • HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:41:25.100 --> 00:41:27.000
  • Y'ALL, THIS IS WHAT SEPARATES OUR FAITH FROM
  • 00:41:27.020 --> 00:41:29.140
  • EVERY OTHER SO-CALLED FAITH ON THE FACE OF THE
  • 00:41:29.160 --> 00:41:32.060
  • EARTH. IT'S THAT OUR GOD IS ALIVE.
  • 00:41:32.080 --> 00:41:35.250
  • IT'S THAT HE SPEAKS.
  • 00:41:35.270 --> 00:41:37.240
  • IT'S THAT WE HAVE THE PRIVILEGE TO HEAR HIS VOICE.
  • 00:41:37.260 --> 00:41:41.060
  • NEVER DOWN PLAY OR MINIMIZE THE VALUE, THE
  • 00:41:41.080 --> 00:41:44.190
  • BEAUTY, THE LAVISH GRACE OF THERE PRIVILEGE THAT
  • 00:41:44.210 --> 00:41:47.250
  • WE HAVE TO HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:41:47.270 --> 00:41:52.190
  • SO THE HOLY SPIRIT RESTED UPON HIM.
  • 00:41:52.210 --> 00:41:56.180
  • THERE ARE TWO OTHER THINGS THAT I WANT TO
  • 00:41:56.200 --> 00:41:58.210
  • POINT OUT TO YOU THAT WERE SYMBOLIC OR WERE
  • 00:41:58.230 --> 00:42:00.280
  • SIGNIFICANT ABOUT SIMEON THAT OPENED UP HIS EYES
  • 00:42:01.000 --> 00:42:03.220
  • TO SEE JESUS AS HE WAS TO BE SEEN IN THIS PACKAGE
  • 00:42:03.240 --> 00:42:07.290
  • THAT OTHER PEOPLE DOWN PLAYED AND FOUND
  • 00:42:08.010 --> 00:42:10.050
  • INSIGNIFICANT, THAT THEY TOTALLY IGNORED BECAUSE
  • 00:42:10.070 --> 00:42:12.230
  • THEY DIDN'T THINK THAT THEIR KING WOULD LOOK LIKE THAT.
  • 00:42:12.250 --> 00:42:15.090
  • HERE'S WHAT OPENED SIMEON'S EYES, NOT ONLY
  • 00:42:15.110 --> 00:42:17.160
  • THAT HE WAS IN THE SPIRIT WHEN HE CAME INTO THE
  • 00:42:17.180 --> 00:42:19.280
  • TEMPLE -- AND BY THE WAY, HERE'S ANOTHER RABBIT
  • 00:42:20.000 --> 00:42:22.000
  • TRAIL, SORRY.
  • 00:42:22.020 --> 00:42:24.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:42:24.150 --> 00:42:26.290
  • IF WE CAME TO CHURCH IN THE SPIRIT, IT WOULD
  • 00:42:27.010 --> 00:42:30.230
  • CHANGE OUR EXPERIENCE IN CHURCH.
  • 00:42:30.250 --> 00:42:33.140
  • CAN I JUST SAY THAT?
  • 00:42:33.160 --> 00:42:35.060
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:42:35.080 --> 00:42:37.010
  • BECAUSE WHILE EVERYBODY ELSE WAS LOOKING AT THAT
  • 00:42:37.030 --> 00:42:38.220
  • POOR COUPLE WONDERING WHY IN THE WORLD THEY WERE IN
  • 00:42:38.240 --> 00:42:40.100
  • THEIR MIDST AND DISCOUNTING MARY AND
  • 00:42:40.120 --> 00:42:42.000
  • JOSEPH, SIMEON CAME IN THE SPIRIT, AND HE WAS
  • 00:42:42.020 --> 00:42:45.170
  • LESS CONCERNED ABOUT WHO WAS WEARING WHAT AND WHO
  • 00:42:45.190 --> 00:42:47.240
  • WAS DRIVING WHAT AND WHO SAT WHERE AND WHO'S
  • 00:42:47.260 --> 00:42:49.270
  • IN HIS SEAT AND WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS HOT OUTSIDE
  • 00:42:49.290 --> 00:42:51.230
  • AND THEY HAD TO WALK FAR TO TAKE THEIR
  • 00:42:51.250 --> 00:42:54.000
  • CHILDREN TO SUNDAY SCHOOL.
  • 00:42:54.020 --> 00:42:55.220
  • HE WAS LESS CONCERNED ABOUT HIS CONVENIENCE.
  • 00:42:55.240 --> 00:42:57.280
  • WHETHER OR NOT THE PREACHER PREACHED GOOD
  • 00:42:58.000 --> 00:42:59.210
  • WAS IRRELEVANT TO HIM.
  • 00:42:59.230 --> 00:43:01.020
  • HE WAS LOOKING FOR JESUS.
  • 00:43:01.040 --> 00:43:02.250
  • WHETHER OR NOT THE MICROPHONES WERE
  • 00:43:02.270 --> 00:43:04.230
  • PERFECTLY BALANCED OR THE LIGHTS WERE EXACTLY AS
  • 00:43:04.250 --> 00:43:07.020
  • THEY SHOULD BE, WHETHER OR NOT THE LED
  • 00:43:07.040 --> 00:43:09.170
  • SCREENS WERE ON FULL DISPLAY THAT DAY, WHETHER
  • 00:43:09.190 --> 00:43:12.080
  • OR NOT THE USHERS WERE OR WERE NOT KIND WAS
  • 00:43:12.100 --> 00:43:14.030
  • NOT HIS PRIORITY.
  • 00:43:14.050 --> 00:43:15.280
  • HE HAD COME WITH HIS EYES PEELED FOR JESUS.
  • 00:43:16.000 --> 00:43:17.290
  • WE WOULD BE LESS CRITICAL AND LESS SKEPTICAL IF WE
  • 00:43:18.010 --> 00:43:20.290
  • CAME TO CHURCH IN THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:43:21.010 --> 00:43:24.270
  • THEN THE PRESSURE WOULDN'T BE ON THE PERSON
  • 00:43:24.290 --> 00:43:26.250
  • WHO'S ON THE STAGE BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T COME
  • 00:43:26.270 --> 00:43:28.080
  • TO SEE THEM. YOU CAME TO SEE JESUS.
  • 00:43:28.100 --> 00:43:32.220
  • OKAY, VERSE 27, SO HE COMES TO THE SPIRIT, AND
  • 00:43:32.240 --> 00:43:36.270
  • THEN LOOK WHAT HAPPENS IN VERSE 27.
  • 00:43:36.290 --> 00:43:39.000
  • THE PARENTS BRING IN THE CHILD JESUS.
  • 00:43:39.020 --> 00:43:43.200
  • JESUS COMES IN IN HIS PARENTS' ARMS.
  • 00:43:43.220 --> 00:43:47.080
  • LOOK AT THE SAVIOR.
  • 00:43:47.100 --> 00:43:48.220
  • LOOK AT HOW THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD ARRIVES
  • 00:43:48.240 --> 00:43:50.210
  • ON THIS REMARKABLE DAY.
  • 00:43:50.230 --> 00:43:52.170
  • WATCH HIM SHOW UP INTO THE EXPERIENCE OF THIS
  • 00:43:52.190 --> 00:43:55.280
  • AGED SAINT NAMED SIMEON IN A VERY PERSONAL WAY
  • 00:43:56.000 --> 00:43:58.070
  • AND ON TO THE LANDSCAPE OF HUMAN HISTORY.
  • 00:43:58.090 --> 00:44:01.130
  • HE ARRIVES IN THE ARMS OF HIS PARENTS.
  • 00:44:01.150 --> 00:44:06.190
  • THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY WE SEE JESUS WHEN
  • 00:44:06.210 --> 00:44:09.110
  • WE LOOK AT HIM THROUGH THE WELL-WORN PATHS THAT
  • 00:44:09.130 --> 00:44:13.050
  • HAVE BEEN HEWN OUT BY OUR PARENTS, OUR
  • 00:44:13.070 --> 00:44:15.290
  • GRANDPARENTS, OUR GREAT GRANDPARENTS, OUR
  • 00:44:16.010 --> 00:44:18.130
  • FOREFATHERS AND OUR FOREMOTHERS SPIRITUALLY
  • 00:44:18.150 --> 00:44:20.200
  • SPEAKING, THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE GONE BEFORE US AND
  • 00:44:20.220 --> 00:44:23.120
  • HAVE WALKED WITH JESUS JUST A LITTLE WHILE, WHO
  • 00:44:23.140 --> 00:44:25.270
  • HAVE SPENT THEIR LIVES SERVING HIM.
  • 00:44:25.290 --> 00:44:28.140
  • I AM ALWAYS NERVOUS WHEN I SEE A YOUNG GROUP OF
  • 00:44:28.160 --> 00:44:31.290
  • CHRISTIANS WITH THEIR LITTLE SKINNY JEANS AND
  • 00:44:32.010 --> 00:44:33.280
  • THEIR LATTES AND THEIR AVOCADO TOAST.
  • 00:44:34.000 --> 00:44:36.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:36.020 --> 00:44:38.220
  • WHICH I LOVE, BY THE WAY.
  • 00:44:38.240 --> 00:44:41.210
  • I'M JUST ALWAYS A LITTLE NERVOUS WHEN I SEE THEM
  • 00:44:41.230 --> 00:44:43.250
  • INSTAGRAMMING ALL OF THEIR RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCES
  • 00:44:43.270 --> 00:44:46.100
  • WITHOUT THE OVERSIGHT OF SOME SPIRITUAL PARENTS
  • 00:44:46.120 --> 00:44:50.120
  • BECAUSE, Y'ALL, WE HAVE MODERNIZED JESUS TODAY.
  • 00:44:50.140 --> 00:44:54.180
  • THE MODERN VERSION OF JESUS THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:44:54.200 --> 00:44:56.170
  • CRAFTED, IT HAS MADE HIM WATERED DOWN.
  • 00:44:56.190 --> 00:44:59.100
  • NOW HE'S TOLERANT OF SIN WITHOUT THE
  • 00:44:59.120 --> 00:45:01.080
  • EXPECTATION OF HOLINESS.
  • 00:45:01.100 --> 00:45:03.200
  • OUR JESUS IS POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 00:45:03.220 --> 00:45:06.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:45:06.030 --> 00:45:08.240
  • WE NEED TO SEE JESUS COMING IN THE ARMS OF OUR
  • 00:45:08.260 --> 00:45:11.140
  • PARENTS, THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE US, THE
  • 00:45:11.160 --> 00:45:14.100
  • FOLKS WHO HAVE WALKED THE ROAD A LITTLE WHILE WHO
  • 00:45:14.120 --> 00:45:16.250
  • KNOW WHAT HYMNALS ARE, WHO SANG THE GOOD OLD
  • 00:45:16.270 --> 00:45:21.170
  • HYMNS THAT WERE BASED IN SOME THEOLOGY.
  • 00:45:21.190 --> 00:45:23.280
  • WE GOT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE NEW PRAISE AND
  • 00:45:24.000 --> 00:45:26.080
  • WORSHIP SONGS, I LOVE THEM, WE GOT TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:45:26.100 --> 00:45:28.180
  • THEY'RE ROOTED IN SOME GOOD THEOLOGY.
  • 00:45:28.200 --> 00:45:30.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:45:30.270 --> 00:45:34.270
  • AND SO THE PACKAGE MAY CHANGE.
  • 00:45:34.290 --> 00:45:36.250
  • LISTEN, Y'ALL, I STILL GO TO THE KIND OF CHURCH
  • 00:45:36.270 --> 00:45:39.130
  • THAT'S COME A LONG WAY, BUT IT STARTED WHEN I WAS
  • 00:45:39.150 --> 00:45:41.010
  • ONE YEAR-OLD, THE CHURCH THAT I GO TO NOW.
  • 00:45:41.030 --> 00:45:43.000
  • SO YOU KNOW, BACK IN THE DAY, THERE WAS NO WAY IN
  • 00:45:43.020 --> 00:45:45.250
  • THE WORLD I WOULD HAVE EVER GOTTEN ON A STAGE
  • 00:45:45.270 --> 00:45:47.160
  • WITH PANTS ON.
  • 00:45:47.180 --> 00:45:49.240
  • ARE YOU KIDDING?
  • 00:45:49.260 --> 00:45:51.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:45:51.160 --> 00:45:53.000
  • ANYBODY KNOW WHAT KIND OF CHURCH I'M TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:45:53.020 --> 00:45:54.250
  • WE STILL HAVE A FEW PEOPLE IN OUR CHURCH, A
  • 00:45:54.270 --> 00:45:56.110
  • FEW MOTHERS OF THE CHURCH, IF ANYBODY
  • 00:45:56.130 --> 00:45:58.040
  • KNOWS WHAT I MEAN.
  • 00:45:58.060 --> 00:46:00.090
  • JEANS IN THE CHURCH? ARE YOU KIDDING?
  • 00:46:00.110 --> 00:46:02.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:02.240 --> 00:46:04.170
  • THEY CAME IN IN THEIR SUITS, I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:46:04.190 --> 00:46:06.160
  • WHERE THE SKIRT MATCHES THE JACKET.
  • 00:46:06.180 --> 00:46:08.180
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:08.200 --> 00:46:10.270
  • LIKE THEY WERE BOUGHT TOGETHER.
  • 00:46:10.290 --> 00:46:12.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:12.170 --> 00:46:15.060
  • AND NOT ONLY THAT, BUT UNDERNEATH THAT SUIT,
  • 00:46:15.080 --> 00:46:17.080
  • SHE'S GONNA HAVE SOME ACTUAL PANTY HOSE ON.
  • 00:46:17.100 --> 00:46:20.190
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT SPANKS WITH THE FEET CUT
  • 00:46:20.210 --> 00:46:22.090
  • OUT, HUH-HUH.
  • 00:46:22.110 --> 00:46:24.250
  • I MEAN PANTY HOSE, THE ONES WITH THE GIRDLE TOP.
  • 00:46:24.270 --> 00:46:27.140
  • ANYBODY KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:46:27.160 --> 00:46:28.230
  • ANYBODY REMEMBER THAT?
  • 00:46:28.250 --> 00:46:30.070
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:30.090 --> 00:46:33.070
  • AND SHE'S GONNA HAVE A HANDBAG IN HER HAND, AND
  • 00:46:33.090 --> 00:46:35.150
  • THAT HANDBAG, THAT CLUTCH, IS GOING TO MATCH
  • 00:46:35.170 --> 00:46:37.190
  • THAT JACKET, WHICH MATCHES THAT SKIRT, WHICH
  • 00:46:37.210 --> 00:46:40.180
  • MATCHES HER PAT PATTEN LEATHER SHOES THAT SHE
  • 00:46:40.200 --> 00:46:44.010
  • HAS ON HER FEET, CLOSED-TOED PATTEN LEATHER SHOES.
  • 00:46:44.030 --> 00:46:49.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:49.020 --> 00:46:51.090
  • BUT THE OUTFIT IS NEVER COMPLETE --
  • 00:46:51.110 --> 00:46:52.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:52.280 --> 00:47:00.220
  • AND YOU KNOW IT AIN'T NO REGULAR HAT, RIGHT?
  • 00:47:00.240 --> 00:47:02.130
  • YOU KNOW IT'S GOT SOMETHING.
  • 00:47:02.150 --> 00:47:03.210
  • IT'S A FEATHER OR A NET OR SOMETHING THAT'S
  • 00:47:03.230 --> 00:47:05.090
  • SITTING JUST LIKE THIS.
  • 00:47:05.110 --> 00:47:07.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:07.180 --> 00:47:12.060
  • AND SHE'S GONNA WORSHIP GOD.
  • 00:47:12.080 --> 00:47:15.090
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:15.110 --> 00:47:21.050
  • ANYBODY KNOW WHAT KIND OF CHURCH I'M TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:47:21.070 --> 00:47:22.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:47:22.270 --> 00:47:32.240
  • AND I LOVE WHEN SHE COMES UP TO GIVE A TESTIMONY
  • 00:47:32.260 --> 00:47:39.040
  • ABOUT WHAT SHE HAS SEEN THE LORD DO.
  • 00:47:39.060 --> 00:47:43.120
  • IT MIGHT NOT BE MODERN, IT MIGHT NOT BE NEW AND
  • 00:47:43.140 --> 00:47:45.270
  • IMPROVED, BUT IT'S THE JESUS OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:47:45.290 --> 00:47:49.290
  • ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 00:47:50.010 --> 00:47:52.230
  • IT'S THE GOD OF OUR FOREFATHERS.
  • 00:47:52.250 --> 00:47:55.100
  • THERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU CANNOT
  • 00:47:55.120 --> 00:47:57.040
  • LEARN ON INSTAGRAM.
  • 00:47:57.060 --> 00:47:59.210
  • THERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU JUST NEED TO BE WITH A
  • 00:47:59.230 --> 00:48:02.060
  • MOTHER OF THE CHURCH, SOMEBODY WHO'S WALKED THE
  • 00:48:02.080 --> 00:48:04.200
  • ROAD A LITTLE BIT LONGER THAN YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU
  • 00:48:04.220 --> 00:48:07.110
  • CAN BOUNCE OFF OF HER OR HIM, FROM THE TRUE
  • 00:48:07.130 --> 00:48:12.030
  • THEOLOGICAL, BIBLICALLY-BASED,
  • 00:48:12.050 --> 00:48:15.080
  • UNCHANGING, VENERATED WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:48:15.100 --> 00:48:20.020
  • SO THE PACKAGE MAY CHANGE, BUT THE
  • 00:48:20.040 --> 00:48:21.250
  • PRINCIPLES NEVER DO, Y'ALL.
  • 00:48:21.270 --> 00:48:24.060
  • JESUS WAS NEVER POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 00:48:24.080 --> 00:48:26.030
  • HE WAS ALWAYS REVOLUTIONARY. HE NEVER DISMISSED SIN.
  • 00:48:26.050 --> 00:48:29.210
  • HE CALLED IT OUT IN GRACE,
  • 00:48:29.230 --> 00:48:31.200
  • BUT MOST CERTAINLY IN TRUTH.
  • 00:48:31.220 --> 00:48:33.130
  • HE WAS NEVER WATERED DOWN.
  • 00:48:33.150 --> 00:48:35.030
  • HE ALWAYS SAID, "I AM THE ONLY WAY.
  • 00:48:35.050 --> 00:48:38.140
  • I AM THE TRUTH, AND I AM THE LIFE." HE DIDN'T
  • 00:48:38.160 --> 00:48:41.280
  • ACQUIESCE OR TOLERATE.
  • 00:48:42.000 --> 00:48:44.010
  • HE LOVED, BUT HE DID SAY, "REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM
  • 00:48:44.030 --> 00:48:47.190
  • OF GOD IS AT HAND." GOD MADE US IN HIS IMAGE, AND
  • 00:48:47.210 --> 00:48:55.130
  • ONE PHILOSOPHER SAID WE HAVE NOW RETURNED THE
  • 00:48:55.150 --> 00:48:58.200
  • FAVOR BY TRYING TO MAKE HIM IN OURS.
  • 00:48:58.220 --> 00:49:05.040
  • WE GOTTA SEE JESUS AS HE'S ALWAYS BEEN, AND
  • 00:49:05.060 --> 00:49:07.130
  • SOMETIMES IT REQUIRES YOU GOING TO FIND A PARENT, A
  • 00:49:07.150 --> 00:49:10.210
  • SPIRITUAL PARENT, WHO CAN SHOW YOU THE JESUS
  • 00:49:10.230 --> 00:49:14.160
  • OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:49:14.180 --> 00:49:16.170
  • SIMEON SAW JESUS BECAUSE -- AS HE WAS MEANT
  • 00:49:16.190 --> 00:49:19.230
  • TO BE SEEN.
  • 00:49:19.250 --> 00:49:21.070
  • HE SAW HIM IN THE PACKAGE IN WHICH OUR SAVIOR
  • 00:49:21.090 --> 00:49:23.190
  • WANTED TO COME BECAUSE THERE WERE SOME SPIRITUAL
  • 00:49:23.210 --> 00:49:25.150
  • PARENTS WHO WERE WILLING TO BRING HIM IN.
  • 00:49:25.170 --> 00:49:28.270
  • SO I SPEAK TO THE YOUNGER PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THIS ROOM.
  • 00:49:28.290 --> 00:49:31.140
  • I'M TELLING YOU, CHECK YOUR ARROGANCE.
  • 00:49:31.160 --> 00:49:34.260
  • CHECK OUR LACK OF TEACHABILITY WHERE
  • 00:49:34.280 --> 00:49:38.150
  • SOMETIMES WE JUST THINK WE KNOW IT ALL, SO WE
  • 00:49:38.170 --> 00:49:41.140
  • WON'T RECOGNIZE AND SEE THE BEAUTY OF OUR SAVIOR
  • 00:49:41.160 --> 00:49:44.160
  • BECAUSE WE OWN RECEIVE HIM FROM THE PARENTS WHO
  • 00:49:44.180 --> 00:49:47.150
  • ARE TRYING TO GIVE HIM TO US. SO THE PACKAGE MAY CHANGE.
  • 00:49:47.170 --> 00:49:50.010
  • CHANGE THE PACKAGE.
  • 00:49:50.030 --> 00:49:52.160
  • ENJOY THAT FREEDOM, BUT WATCH AND MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:49:52.180 --> 00:49:55.100
  • YOU'RE STICKING TO THE TRUE MILK OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:49:55.120 --> 00:50:00.120
  • AND THEN CAN I IMPLORE YOU WHO ARE IN THIS ROOM,
  • 00:50:00.140 --> 00:50:03.240
  • AND YOU'VE SORT OF GRADUATED TO THAT PARENT
  • 00:50:03.260 --> 00:50:06.080
  • DEPARTMENT, TAKE THIS AS YOUR PRIVILEGE TO CARRY
  • 00:50:06.100 --> 00:50:11.060
  • JESUS TO THOSE WHO NEED HIM, TO SEE HIM AND
  • 00:50:11.080 --> 00:50:14.200
  • EXPERIENCE HIM AS YOU WILL BRING HIM.
  • 00:50:14.220 --> 00:50:17.050
  • SIMEON SHOWS US THAT IN ORDER TO HAVE OUR EYES
  • 00:50:17.070 --> 00:50:19.140
  • OPENED, HIS EXPERIENCE DEMONSTRATES TO US THAT
  • 00:50:19.160 --> 00:50:21.270
  • WE NEED TO HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT UPON US, AND WE
  • 00:50:21.290 --> 00:50:24.140
  • NEED TO BE LOOKING FOR HOW THE PARENTS BRING HIM
  • 00:50:24.160 --> 00:50:27.130
  • INTO OUR PARENTS, BUT FINALLY, IT SAYS IN VERSE
  • 00:50:27.150 --> 00:50:30.070
  • 28 THAT AS SOON AS HE CAUGHT A GLIMPSE OF HIM,
  • 00:50:30.090 --> 00:50:34.120
  • HE WENT OVER -- LOOK AT THE BOLDNESS, LOOK AT THE
  • 00:50:34.140 --> 00:50:37.080
  • AUDACITY, LOOK AT THE EAGERNESS OF SIMEON.
  • 00:50:37.100 --> 00:50:39.150
  • HE RUNS OVER TO THE PARENTS.
  • 00:50:39.170 --> 00:50:41.290
  • HE TAKES THE BABY...
  • 00:50:42.010 --> 00:50:45.200
  • OUT OF THEIR ARMS AND GATHERS HIM TO HIMSELF
  • 00:50:45.220 --> 00:50:51.130
  • BECAUSE AN EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS FROM AFAR
  • 00:50:51.150 --> 00:50:54.200
  • WASN'T ENOUGH FOR SIMEON.
  • 00:50:54.220 --> 00:50:57.280
  • CAN I JUST TELL YOU IN THIS ROOM THAT GOD DOES
  • 00:50:58.000 --> 00:51:00.020
  • NOT HAVE GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:51:00.040 --> 00:51:02.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:51:02.100 --> 00:51:11.250
  • YOU GOTTA HAVE YOUR OWN RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:51:11.270 --> 00:51:14.220
  • YOU HAVE TO MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICE.
  • 00:51:14.240 --> 00:51:17.110
  • YOU HAVE TO GO AND GATHER HIM UP FOR YOURSELF.
  • 00:51:17.130 --> 00:51:20.210
  • YOU HAVE TO TASTE AND SEE FOR YOURSELF HOW GOOD HE IS.
  • 00:51:20.230 --> 00:51:25.040
  • YOU CAN CELEBRATE HIM IN THE TESTIMONIES OF OTHER
  • 00:51:25.060 --> 00:51:27.150
  • PEOPLE, IN THE EXPERIENCE OF OTHER PEOPLE UNTIL YOU
  • 00:51:27.170 --> 00:51:30.130
  • ARE BLUE IN THE FACE, BUT THERE'S GOT TO COME A
  • 00:51:30.150 --> 00:51:32.280
  • TIME WHERE YOU HAVE TO DECIDE I'M GOING TO STOP
  • 00:51:33.000 --> 00:51:35.010
  • SITTING ON THE PERIPHERY AND APPLAUDING HIS
  • 00:51:35.030 --> 00:51:36.250
  • EXPERIENCE WITH OTHER FOLKS.
  • 00:51:36.270 --> 00:51:38.190
  • YOU GOTTA DECIDE TODAY WILL BE THE DAY THAT I GO
  • 00:51:38.210 --> 00:51:41.100
  • AND GATHER HIM UP FOR MYSELF, THAT I START TO
  • 00:51:41.120 --> 00:51:45.070
  • SPEND TIME WITH HIM IN PRAYER AND IN
  • 00:51:45.090 --> 00:51:47.210
  • CONVERSATION SO THAT I CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF
  • 00:51:47.230 --> 00:51:50.130
  • THIS PRIVILEGE TO HEAR HIS VOICE AND TO SPEAK TO
  • 00:51:50.150 --> 00:51:53.030
  • HIM IN PRAYER, THAT I WON'T LET EVERYBODY KEEP
  • 00:51:53.050 --> 00:51:55.040
  • SPOON FEEDING ME THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:51:55.060 --> 00:51:56.270
  • I'M GOING TO GO TO THE SCRIPTURES MYSELF AND
  • 00:51:56.290 --> 00:51:59.130
  • KNOW THAT I, TOO, CAN HAVE AN ONGOING, FERVENT
  • 00:51:59.150 --> 00:52:02.180
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.
  • 00:52:02.200 --> 00:52:04.140
  • I'M GONNA GATHER HIM UP IN MY OWN ARMS, AND WHEN
  • 00:52:04.160 --> 00:52:08.060
  • YOU DO, YOU WILL SEE HIM AND EXPERIENCE HIM AND
  • 00:52:08.080 --> 00:52:12.180
  • ENCOUNTER HIM IN A WAY YOU HAVE NEVER
  • 00:52:12.200 --> 00:52:14.210
  • ENCOUNTERED HIM BEFORE.
