  • and I will enter his courts with praise.
  • 00:00:02.280 --> 00:00:05.140
  • I'll say this is the day that the Lord has made,
  • 00:00:05.150 --> 00:00:07.240
  • and I will rejoice, for he has made me glad.
  • 00:00:07.250 --> 00:00:10.150
  • What a way to start off a program.
  • 00:00:10.160 --> 00:00:11.270
  • Hi, I'm Ron Carpenter.
  • 00:00:11.280 --> 00:00:13.130
  • We're talking about praise, we're talking about worship,
  • 00:00:13.140 --> 00:00:15.150
  • we're talking about logging in to the presence of God.
  • 00:00:15.160 --> 00:00:18.250
  • Because once you're in God's presence,
  • 00:00:18.260 --> 00:00:20.150
  • anything is possible.
  • 00:00:20.160 --> 00:00:21.240
  • Stay tuned and I'll tell you more about it.
  • 00:00:21.250 --> 00:00:23.160
  • (uplifting music)

  • 00:00:34.190 --> 00:00:39.270
  • The Bible says that Jesus was God's only begotten son.
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:43.180
  • The greatest law of the kingdom,
  • 00:00:45.060 --> 00:00:46.290
  • and the first one ever taught
  • 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:48.050
  • was the law of sowing and reaping.
  • 00:00:48.060 --> 00:00:49.260
  • So what does God do?
  • 00:00:51.000 --> 00:00:52.180
  • God wants many sons, so he sows his only son.
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:57.180
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:00:58.160 --> 00:01:00.050
  • God has to operate by his own laws.
  • 00:01:00.060 --> 00:01:04.050
  • He can't operate outside of them.
  • 00:01:04.060 --> 00:01:06.220
  • So God takes heaven's only son, Jesus, as seed.
  • 00:01:06.230 --> 00:01:11.230
  • And the Bible says
  • 00:01:12.150 --> 00:01:13.210
  • that he was buried, dead, and resurrected.
  • 00:01:13.220 --> 00:01:16.060
  • And the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 2,
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:17.130
  • had the rulers of that age had known,
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:20.180
  • they would never have crucified him.
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:22.130
  • Why, because they were trying to get rid of the son of God,
  • 00:01:23.270 --> 00:01:26.230
  • and had no idea that by killing him,
  • 00:01:26.240 --> 00:01:29.090
  • they were going to raise up many sons of God. Come on somebody.
  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:32.070
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:01:32.080 --> 00:01:33.220
  • So they thought in death they would get rid of him,
  • 00:01:33.230 --> 00:01:36.040
  • but in death, they multiplied him.
  • 00:01:36.050 --> 00:01:38.020
  • (congregation applauding and cheering)
  • 00:01:38.030 --> 00:01:40.190
  • The thing that's killing you
  • 00:01:40.200 --> 00:01:41.260
  • is going to end up multiplying you.
  • 00:01:41.270 --> 00:01:43.030
  • Can I just tell somebody that?
  • 00:01:43.040 --> 00:01:44.160
  • The thing that's coming against you,
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:46.000
  • and giving you such difficulty
  • 00:01:46.010 --> 00:01:47.280
  • is the thing that's going to push something outta you
  • 00:01:47.290 --> 00:01:50.010
  • that you didn't even know you had.
  • 00:01:50.020 --> 00:01:51.240
  • And they thought they were killing Jesus,
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:53.220
  • but when he died, he didn't come out of the ground a son,
  • 00:01:53.230 --> 00:01:57.050
  • he came out of the ground with many sons.
  • 00:01:57.060 --> 00:01:59.070
  • That's me, and you, and everyone before us,
  • 00:01:59.080 --> 00:02:01.200
  • and everybody after us. That's worth a clap
  • 00:02:01.210 --> 00:02:04.110
  • all by itself right there.
  • 00:02:04.120 --> 00:02:05.260
  • (dramatic organ music)
  • 00:02:05.270 --> 00:02:08.020
  • (congregation applauding and cheering)
  • 00:02:08.030 --> 00:02:10.060
  • The Bible says Jesus was begotten,
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:12.070
  • the Bible says were are adopted.
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:13.260
  • Adopted may be even greater,
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:18.160
  • because it means that I was chosen, I was wanted.
  • 00:02:18.170 --> 00:02:21.000
  • The great thing about adoption
  • 00:02:22.000 --> 00:02:23.140
  • that anybody who's ever been adopted,
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:24.280
  • that should adore is the fact that someone chose you.
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:28.150
  • Someone picked you out, and somebody chose you.
  • 00:02:28.160 --> 00:02:32.020
  • What an amazing, amazing event,
  • 00:02:32.030 --> 00:02:34.110
  • to be wanted by God on that level.
  • 00:02:34.120 --> 00:02:36.180
  • And the Bible says you didn't choose me, I chose you.
  • 00:02:36.190 --> 00:02:39.080
  • That's what God said. He said you didn't find me,
  • 00:02:39.090 --> 00:02:41.210
  • I went out and found you, and I chose you.
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:44.030
  • And listen, John 15 said I chose you
  • 00:02:44.040 --> 00:02:45.260
  • that you bear much fruit.
  • 00:02:45.270 --> 00:02:47.130
  • He didn't choose you to come out and be pitiful.
  • 00:02:47.140 --> 00:02:49.140
  • He chose you to come out and be powerful.
  • 00:02:49.150 --> 00:02:51.160
  • He chose you that there would be something
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:53.040
  • that would come out of your life
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:54.220
  • that would be better than if you had never found him.
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:57.010
  • He said with me, you're going to bear fruit,
  • 00:02:57.020 --> 00:02:59.100
  • for by this it glorifies my Father,
  • 00:02:59.110 --> 00:03:01.240
  • that you bear much fruit.
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:03.120
  • I got to quit. I'm all over the place.
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:05.010
  • I got words just rolling out of me.
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:07.130
  • Can I keep going? See, that's the problem,
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:09.140
  • we're not keeping me on paper.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:10.200
  • Now I just get to talk out of my spirit,
  • 00:03:10.210 --> 00:03:12.250
  • and that's dangerous.
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:14.100
  • That's dangerous.
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.060
  • So now I know that I'm adopted of God.
  • 00:03:16.240 --> 00:03:18.250
  • Now the Bible says in Hebrews 10 that Jesus is not ashamed,
  • 00:03:18.260 --> 00:03:22.080
  • this is going to mess with your head a little bit,
  • 00:03:22.090 --> 00:03:23.170
  • to call me brother.
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:24.250
  • I know Jesus as Savior, I know him as Lord,
  • 00:03:27.230 --> 00:03:30.060
  • I know him as Healer, but now he's my brother.
  • 00:03:30.070 --> 00:03:32.160
  • And the Bible says that I am a joint heir with Jesus.
  • 00:03:34.240 --> 00:03:37.270
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:03:38.260 --> 00:03:40.100
  • That means that whatever is,
  • 00:03:40.110 --> 00:03:42.000
  • whatever inheritance is falling to Jesus,
  • 00:03:42.010 --> 00:03:44.130
  • is also falling to...
  • 00:03:44.140 --> 00:03:45.180
  • (congregation cheering and applauding)
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:50.180
  • So whatever's coming to Jesus is coming to me.
  • 00:03:50.190 --> 00:03:54.110
  • Because I'm joint heir. So I am a son of the most high God,
  • 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:58.080
  • I'm a son by adoption. Jesus is the begotten of God,
  • 00:03:58.090 --> 00:04:01.170
  • I'm the adopted of God,
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:03.080
  • and Jesus is not ashamed to call me his brother,
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:06.020
  • and now because I'm a son, I am a joint heir with Jesus,
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:09.100
  • and whatever's fallen from the Father on Jesus
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:11.220
  • is also falling to me, because I'm a son, now I'm an heir.
  • 00:04:11.230 --> 00:04:15.160
  • Are you understanding what I'm talking about?
  • 00:04:15.170 --> 00:04:17.100
  • Somebody I want you to say this with me three times,
  • 00:04:17.110 --> 00:04:19.040
  • say I am a son, say that.
  • 00:04:19.050 --> 00:04:21.050
  • I am a son, say it again one more time, say I am a son.
  • 00:04:21.060 --> 00:04:25.230
  • Now, if you're a son, that means you have rights
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:31.060
  • to what's in the Father's house.
  • 00:04:31.070 --> 00:04:32.290
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.060
  • There's a story called "The Prodigal Son".
  • 00:04:34.070 --> 00:04:36.190
  • The father had two sons, evidently he was a wealthy man,
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:41.270
  • and the prodigal son went to him
  • 00:04:41.280 --> 00:04:43.190
  • and said, "Father, give me
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:45.000
  • "the part of the inheritance that falls to me."
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:47.240
  • So he wanted his stuff before he was ever developed.
  • 00:04:47.250 --> 00:04:52.100
  • Be careful when you get stuff without character.
  • 00:04:52.110 --> 00:04:55.240
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:57.140
  • Okay? It's a dangerous thing when God gives you
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:05:00.260
  • before he makes you.
  • 00:05:00.270 --> 00:05:02.000
  • He needs to make you first and then give you.
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:05.160
  • But the son came prematurely and said give me what's mine,
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:08.280
  • even though I'm not a fully matured son yet.
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:11.260
  • And the Bible says that he went off
  • 00:05:11.270 --> 00:05:13.160
  • and squandered his father's inheritance, in riotous living.
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:17.070
  • I think in 2019,
  • 00:05:17.080 --> 00:05:18.210
  • that would basically mean he partied very hard.
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:22.090
  • And when had spent all of his father's inheritance,
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:25.090
  • he was not able to keep that economy going himself.
  • 00:05:25.100 --> 00:05:29.060
  • So his father's economy had now been spent,
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:32.010
  • the inheritance that had fallen to him was gone,
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:34.070
  • and he had no ability to generate
  • 00:05:34.080 --> 00:05:36.000
  • that same economy for himself.
  • 00:05:36.010 --> 00:05:38.030
  • So the Bible said he ended up feeding himself with the pigs.
  • 00:05:38.040 --> 00:05:41.160
  • He got a job feeding the swine, and he's...
  • 00:05:41.170 --> 00:05:44.000
  • the Bible says he longed for the food
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:46.160
  • that the pigs were eating.
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:48.020
  • How many of you know what pigs eat should make a human sick?
  • 00:05:48.030 --> 00:05:51.160
  • You know you're out of God's will when you can eat things
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:54.110
  • that should make you sick.
  • 00:05:54.120 --> 00:05:55.210
  • I'll leave that alone.
  • 00:05:57.020 --> 00:05:58.080
  • That'll hit you at the drive-thru right there.
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:05:59.160
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:03.160
  • There should be activities, there should be people,
  • 00:06:03.170 --> 00:06:05.250
  • there should be atmospheres that upset you,
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:08.140
  • if you're really walking with God in a tight way.
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:11.020
  • There should be things
  • 00:06:11.030 --> 00:06:12.100
  • that you shouldn't be able to digest easily.
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:13.280
  • There should be things that bother you. Come on somebody.
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:16.140
  • I shouldn't be walking close to God
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:19.020
  • and just be able to let my life go anywhere and do anything.
  • 00:06:19.030 --> 00:06:22.200
  • I shouldn't be able to ingest things
  • 00:06:22.210 --> 00:06:24.090
  • that should make me sick.
  • 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:25.170
  • And he's sitting there eating the stuff
  • 00:06:25.180 --> 00:06:27.100
  • that should make him sick,
  • 00:06:27.110 --> 00:06:28.250
  • and he realizes I'm a long way from my father's house.
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:31.270
  • So he said I will arise and go back to my father's house.
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:35.090
  • And the Bible says he came to himself. Okay?
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:38.240
  • When you're eating pig slop you'll come to yourself.
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:41.000
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:06:41.010 --> 00:06:42.070
  • He came to himself, and he went back,
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:45.010
  • and he said, "I'm no longer worthy to be a son,
  • 00:06:45.020 --> 00:06:47.290
  • "would you make me like one of your servants?"
  • 00:06:48.000 --> 00:06:51.080
  • And the father said, "Give me a ring,"
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:53.130
  • put it on his finger. The ring symbolized sonship,
  • 00:06:53.140 --> 00:06:56.010
  • he said, "Bring sandals, put it on his feet,
  • 00:06:56.020 --> 00:06:58.030
  • "put a coat on his back, and kill the fatted calf,
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:07:00.210
  • "for my son who was lost is now found."
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:03.210
  • In other words, you got to understand
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:05.100
  • your relationship with God, failure is never final.
  • 00:07:05.110 --> 00:07:08.160
  • Because he left as a son,
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:10.090
  • he was a son while he was out there feeding the pigs,
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:13.040
  • and he was a son when he got back.
  • 00:07:13.050 --> 00:07:15.090
  • It does not matter if you're in your best day
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:17.080
  • or your worst day, your status with God does not change,
  • 00:07:17.090 --> 00:07:21.130
  • all you got to do is come to yourself
  • 00:07:21.140 --> 00:07:23.230
  • if you're a long way off, and say I will arise,
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:26.240
  • and go back to my Father's house.
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:29.010
  • And today. if you've distanced yourself from him,
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:31.050
  • you will find him waiting for you,
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:33.080
  • aw, ready to put a ring on your finger,
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:35.240
  • sandals on your feet, and throw a party on your behalf.
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:39.000
  • Somebody say hallelujah.
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:40.280
  • - [Congregation] Hallelujah.
  • 00:07:40.290 --> 00:07:41.270
  • (dramatic organ music)
  • 00:07:41.280 --> 00:07:44.110
  • - So the party's going on, and daddy can't enjoy the party
  • 00:07:44.120 --> 00:07:48.280
  • because the prodigal son has an older brother.
  • 00:07:48.290 --> 00:07:51.140
  • He's mad.
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:54.060
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:07:54.070 --> 00:07:55.130
  • So he's out on the back porch pouting.
  • 00:07:55.140 --> 00:07:57.150
  • So dad has to leave the party,
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:01.150
  • and his son has just gotten home, and he says,
  • 00:08:01.160 --> 00:08:04.260
  • "What's going on here?"
  • 00:08:04.270 --> 00:08:06.110
  • And his older son says, "All these years I served you.
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:10.240
  • All these years I did this, and I did this,
  • 00:08:14.020 --> 00:08:16.160
  • and I did this, and I did this, and I didn't do that,
  • 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:18.240
  • and I didn't do that, and I didn't do that.
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:20.120
  • In other words, I kept it between the lines,
  • 00:08:20.130 --> 00:08:22.250
  • I did everything you wanted me to do,
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:24.180
  • I didn't do anything you didn't want me to do,
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:26.140
  • and I served this, and I did, and I did, and I did,
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:28.260
  • and I did, and I did.
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.180
  • And the father said this, he said, "Son."
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:34.020
  • In other words, the boy is acting like a servant.
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:38.050
  • He said I did this, this, this, this, this.
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:43.190
  • And he went through his list.
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:45.100
  • And he said, "And you've never killed the fatted calf for me."
  • 00:08:46.230 --> 00:08:48.280
  • He said, "Son, do you not understand,
  • 00:08:48.290 --> 00:08:51.080
  • "everything I have is yours."
  • 00:08:51.090 --> 00:08:53.160
  • In other words, he said it's not my fault
  • 00:08:55.070 --> 00:08:58.060
  • that you lived in my house as a son
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:09:00.190
  • but acted like a servant.
  • 00:09:00.200 --> 00:09:02.000
  • You don't have access because of what you did,
  • 00:09:05.030 --> 00:09:08.010
  • you don't have access because of you didn't do.
  • 00:09:08.020 --> 00:09:10.220
  • You have access because you're mine.
  • 00:09:10.230 --> 00:09:13.060
  • And somebody in this room needs to understand
  • 00:09:13.070 --> 00:09:15.200
  • you don't have access to what God has
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:18.100
  • because you did all the right things,
  • 00:09:18.110 --> 00:09:20.060
  • and you're not denied access because you screwed up
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:22.290
  • and didn't do the right things.
  • 00:09:23.000 --> 00:09:24.110
  • You have access to everything that the Father has
  • 00:09:24.120 --> 00:09:27.250
  • because you are now a son, and you've been adopted
  • 00:09:27.260 --> 00:09:31.110
  • in the family through the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:09:31.120 --> 00:09:33.270
  • And if anybody in here is glad
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:35.130
  • that you have the identity of sonship,
  • 00:09:35.140 --> 00:09:38.030
  • would you just give God a handclap offering right now,
  • 00:09:38.040 --> 00:09:41.000
  • because that is a powerful thing
  • 00:09:41.010 --> 00:09:42.220
  • to know where I stand with God.
  • 00:09:42.230 --> 00:09:45.080
  • Oh hallelujah. (dramatic organ music)
  • 00:09:45.090 --> 00:09:49.200
  • High five your neighbor on both sides and say
  • 00:09:50.260 --> 00:09:52.080
  • I want you to know I'm a son, I'm a son.
  • 00:09:52.090 --> 00:09:54.040
  • Even if you're a lady say I'm a son.
  • 00:09:54.050 --> 00:09:56.000
  • (congregation chattering)
  • 00:09:56.010 --> 00:09:59.110
  • You've heard me say this,
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:00.260
  • because I've seen some of you re-Tweet it and re-quote it,
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:03.110
  • that when you understand who you are,
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:08.080
  • you understand what you have access to, okay.
  • 00:10:09.130 --> 00:10:13.150
  • Therefore your prayer life should shift.
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:16.200
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:18.120
  • - In other words, if you, I love to pray in the sanctuary,
  • 00:10:18.130 --> 00:10:22.000
  • I believe this room needs to hear me pray.
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:24.060
  • I believe you need to walk in this room
  • 00:10:25.110 --> 00:10:27.010
  • and say somebody has been praying,
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:29.130
  • that's what I want you to fee like.
  • 00:10:29.140 --> 00:10:31.060
  • If you are a fly on the wall and you heard me praying,
  • 00:10:32.190 --> 00:10:34.240
  • I don't lay down on the floor and beg God for stuff.
  • 00:10:34.250 --> 00:10:38.130
  • - [Congregation] Come on now, amen, hallelujah.
  • 00:10:38.140 --> 00:10:42.100
  • - I know what he tells me is already mine,
  • 00:10:42.110 --> 00:10:45.070
  • by virtue of being his son.
  • 00:10:46.160 --> 00:10:48.180
  • I have rights to everything in his house.
  • 00:10:50.060 --> 00:10:52.230
  • So if you heard me in this room,
  • 00:10:54.160 --> 00:10:56.110
  • I'm not begging, I'm declaring.
  • 00:10:56.120 --> 00:10:58.250
  • (congregation applauding and cheering)
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:03.200
  • If you beg God for stuff,
  • 00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:05.140
  • that means you still perceive yourself
  • 00:11:05.150 --> 00:11:07.210
  • as an outsider looking in.
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:09.150
  • In other words, you don't say this,
  • 00:11:10.190 --> 00:11:11.190
  • Lord would you protect us today.
  • 00:11:11.200 --> 00:11:13.140
  • That's okay, you're an outsider.
  • 00:11:16.140 --> 00:11:18.290
  • No, if you heard me praying, this is what you'd hear.
  • 00:11:19.000 --> 00:11:22.010
  • Lord I thank you,
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:23.010
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:25.030
  • that you command your angels concerning me
  • 00:11:25.040 --> 00:11:27.120
  • to take charge over me, and guard me in all of my ways
  • 00:11:27.130 --> 00:11:30.250
  • so I do not dash my foot against the stone.

  • no weapon formed against me shall prosper,

  • Come on somebody, you understand what I'm saying.
  • 00:11:53.270 --> 00:11:55.190
  • The name of the Lord is a strong tower,

  • the righteous run into it and they are saved.
  • 00:11:57.290 --> 00:12:00.210
  • And when the enemy comes in, like a flood,
  • 00:12:00.220 --> 00:12:02.200
  • the spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against.
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:05.190
  • I don't beg God for that,
  • 00:12:05.200 --> 00:12:07.140
  • I say what he already says is mine.
  • 00:12:07.150 --> 00:12:10.140
  • And I have it because I'm a son.

  • - Now, Jesus, in Matthew 4,
  • 00:13:21.120 --> 00:13:26.100
  • was led in the spirit
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:28.160
  • into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
  • 00:13:28.170 --> 00:13:31.110
  • Oh here we go.
  • 00:13:31.120 --> 00:13:32.100
  • He fasted 40 days and 40 nights,
  • 00:13:33.210 --> 00:13:35.120
  • and afterward he was hungry.
  • 00:13:35.130 --> 00:13:36.250
  • Now when the tempter came to him, he said, "If you are
  • 00:13:38.080 --> 00:13:40.180
  • "the son of God, command these stones to become bread."
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:45.070
  • But he answered and said, "It is written
  • 00:13:46.130 --> 00:13:47.180
  • "man shall not live by bread alone,
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:49.010
  • "but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."
  • 00:13:49.020 --> 00:13:50.180
  • Verse 5, then the devil took him to the holy city,
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:53.090
  • and set him on the pinnacle of the temple.
  • 00:13:53.100 --> 00:13:55.190
  • Said to him, "If you are the son of God,"
  • 00:13:55.200 --> 00:13:58.010
  • (throat clearing) excuse me, "Throw yourself down,
  • 00:13:58.020 --> 00:14:00.060
  • "for it is written he shall give his angels
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:01.160
  • "charge over you," verse 7, "and in their hands
  • 00:14:01.170 --> 00:14:04.090
  • "they shall bear you up,
  • 00:14:04.100 --> 00:14:05.170
  • "lest you dash your foot against a stone."
  • 00:14:06.220 --> 00:14:08.060
  • I just quoted that.
  • 00:14:08.070 --> 00:14:10.040
  • Jesus said to him, "It's written,
  • 00:14:10.050 --> 00:14:11.120
  • "you shall not tempt the Lord your God."
  • 00:14:11.130 --> 00:14:14.040
  • Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain
  • 00:14:14.050 --> 00:14:16.090
  • and showed him all the kingdoms of the world,
  • 00:14:16.100 --> 00:14:17.240
  • and their glory, and he said to him, "All these things
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:20.230
  • "I will give you if you fall down and worship me."
  • 00:14:20.240 --> 00:14:23.040
  • Verse 10, Jesus said, "Away with you."
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:26.120
  • Or "Get thee behind me, Satan, for it is written
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:29.140
  • "you shall worship the Lord your God,
  • 00:14:29.150 --> 00:14:31.000
  • "and him only shall you serve."
  • 00:14:31.010 --> 00:14:33.070
  • Then the devil left him, and behold angels came
  • 00:14:33.080 --> 00:14:35.080
  • and ministered to him.
  • 00:14:35.090 --> 00:14:36.220
  • It makes you just want to clap, knowing he had to leave.
  • 00:14:36.230 --> 00:14:38.200
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:42.050
  • All right Pastor, you said you was preaching
  • 00:14:42.060 --> 00:14:44.160
  • on praise and worship,
  • 00:14:44.170 --> 00:14:45.230
  • I ain't hearing no praise and worship.
  • 00:14:45.240 --> 00:14:47.090
  • Jesus is 30 years old.
  • 00:14:50.150 --> 00:14:52.080
  • And him, and the enemy, the tempter, the devil,
  • 00:14:55.120 --> 00:14:58.240
  • they're going at it.
  • 00:14:58.250 --> 00:14:59.250
  • We have no recorded warfare for 30 years, why now?
  • 00:15:03.010 --> 00:15:08.010
  • Jesus has been on the earth 30 years. If it happened,
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:20.020
  • we have no record of it.
  • 00:15:21.040 --> 00:15:22.130
  • I got your attention now.
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:26.120
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:15:26.130 --> 00:15:27.180
  • Nothing, and then all of a sudden, bam,
  • 00:15:27.190 --> 00:15:30.090
  • intense warfare. Why?
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:33.260
  • Because right before this event
  • 00:15:35.160 --> 00:15:38.040
  • of going into the wilderness and being tempted,
  • 00:15:38.050 --> 00:15:40.080
  • he was baptized.
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:41.130
  • When he was baptized, the Bible said the heavens opened.
  • 00:15:43.080 --> 00:15:46.020
  • The Bible says that the Holy Spirit descended on him
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:50.230
  • in bodily form like a dove, and that a voice
  • 00:15:50.240 --> 00:15:54.200
  • came from heaven and said, "This is my son,
  • 00:15:56.250 --> 00:16:00.120
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:04.100
  • "whom I am well pleased."
  • 00:16:04.110 --> 00:16:07.000
  • This is my son. This is not Mary's boy.
  • 00:16:08.050 --> 00:16:12.050
  • This is not Joseph, the carpenter's boy.
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:17.260
  • This is my son.
  • 00:16:17.270 --> 00:16:20.050
  • And when identity was revealed,
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:24.070
  • warfare came immediately.
  • 00:16:26.230 --> 00:16:29.240
  • Why did you spend the last 20 minutes
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:31.250
  • telling me I was a son?
  • 00:16:31.260 --> 00:16:33.160
  • Because the moment Jesus pulled --
  • 00:16:33.170 --> 00:16:35.260
  • God pulled the lid off Jesus and revealed
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:38.250
  • this is heaven's son, not Joseph and Mary's son,
  • 00:16:38.260 --> 00:16:41.280
  • this is heaven's only begotten son,
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:44.080
  • then immediately that identity had to be challenged.
  • 00:16:44.090 --> 00:16:47.220
  • Because look at what the devil said, "If you are."
  • 00:16:47.230 --> 00:16:52.090
  • When the enemy heard this is my son,
  • 00:16:58.010 --> 00:16:59.270
  • Satan said, "I got to challenge that."
  • 00:16:59.280 --> 00:17:01.250
  • And we think
  • 00:17:04.260 --> 00:17:06.100
  • that the enemy is trying to stop what we're doing.
  • 00:17:06.110 --> 00:17:08.080
  • I'm trying to get my marriage straightened out,
  • 00:17:09.190 --> 00:17:10.250
  • and the devil is just fighting me.
  • 00:17:10.260 --> 00:17:12.020
  • And trying to get this business off the ground,
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:13.280
  • devil just fight,
  • 00:17:13.290 --> 00:17:15.050
  • I'm trying to get debt free, and the devil ...
  • 00:17:15.060 --> 00:17:16.070
  • and we are always somehow
  • 00:17:16.080 --> 00:17:18.070
  • put the devil in the context
  • 00:17:18.080 --> 00:17:19.290
  • of coming against what we're doing.
  • 00:17:20.000 --> 00:17:21.290
  • The enemy does not come against what you're doing.
  • 00:17:22.000 --> 00:17:24.090
  • He challenges who you are.
  • 00:17:24.100 --> 00:17:26.110
  • And he says if you are a son.
  • 00:17:28.100 --> 00:17:31.060
  • Trouble does not come to test what you're doing.
  • 00:17:36.120 --> 00:17:39.170
  • Trouble come to test who you are.
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:43.120
  • And when there's adversity in front of you,
  • 00:17:44.210 --> 00:17:46.220
  • it's looking at you and saying if you are a son of God,
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:50.160
  • and if you are a son of God.
  • 00:17:50.170 --> 00:17:52.140
  • That adversity is telling you right now,
  • 00:17:52.150 --> 00:17:54.110
  • if you are. It's standing and mocking you right now,
  • 00:17:54.120 --> 00:17:56.250
  • saying if you are a son of God.
  • 00:17:56.260 --> 00:17:59.020
  • And I want you to know something, when that adversity comes
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:01.160
  • you've got to understand that in that moment
  • 00:18:01.170 --> 00:18:04.010
  • your identity is being challenged,
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:06.090
  • you got to know who you are,
  • 00:18:06.100 --> 00:18:07.280
  • and you've got to speak the word out of your mouth, why?
  • 00:18:07.290 --> 00:18:10.250
  • Because everything in that book is power
  • 00:18:10.260 --> 00:18:13.060
  • when it's in your mouth,
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:14.170
  • and it will make the enemy know who you are,
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:17.050
  • and make him flee from you.
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:18.180
  • Somebody shout hallelujah.
  • 00:18:18.190 --> 00:18:20.130
  • - [Congregation] Hallelujah.
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:22.120
  • - Now, Psalm 149 and 50 go together.
  • 00:18:22.130 --> 00:18:26.230
  • And I just want to read through Psalm 150,
  • 00:18:28.140 --> 00:18:30.150
  • and land on Psalm 149.
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:32.060
  • Praise the Lord, praise God in his sanctuary,
  • 00:18:33.110 --> 00:18:37.030
  • that's you right here, you are his sanctuary.
  • 00:18:37.040 --> 00:18:39.180
  • Praise him in his mighty firmament, that means in the air,
  • 00:18:39.190 --> 00:18:42.050
  • in the heavens, praise him for his mighty acts.
  • 00:18:42.060 --> 00:18:44.220
  • Praise him according to his ex,
  • 00:18:44.230 --> 00:18:46.100
  • see I can't even read it.
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:47.190
  • I just read it and I can't even get past it,
  • 00:18:48.230 --> 00:18:50.060
  • I got to stop right here.
  • 00:18:50.070 --> 00:18:51.140
  • Praise him according to his excellent greatness.
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:53.200
  • Y'all are used to praising him
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:55.040
  • according to what you saw him do.
  • 00:18:55.050 --> 00:18:57.200
  • But now the Bible says praise him
  • 00:18:57.210 --> 00:18:59.050
  • according to his excellent.
  • 00:18:59.060 --> 00:19:00.210
  • The root word of excellent is excel.
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:02.230
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:04.200
  • Praise him for his excel,
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:06.270
  • the word excel means to throw beyond.
  • 00:19:06.280 --> 00:19:10.050
  • In other words, praise him not just for what he did last,
  • 00:19:10.060 --> 00:19:13.250
  • but praise him for his ability to go beyond
  • 00:19:13.260 --> 00:19:16.090
  • the last thing he just did.
  • 00:19:16.100 --> 00:19:18.030
  • Somebody who just had God do something great,
  • 00:19:18.040 --> 00:19:20.040
  • I'm going to give you five seconds
  • 00:19:20.050 --> 00:19:21.220
  • to let out a praise for his ability to go beyond it.
  • 00:19:21.230 --> 00:19:25.070
  • Because your God is so great,
  • 00:19:25.080 --> 00:19:27.120
  • that I don't care how big a thing he did last time,
  • 00:19:27.130 --> 00:19:30.080
  • the thing he does next time is always bigger
  • 00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:32.180
  • than the thing he did last time.
  • 00:19:32.190 --> 00:19:36.010
  • I feel the anointing of the Holy Ghost in this place.
  • 00:19:36.020 --> 00:19:40.050
  • Praise him according to his ability to do exceedingly,
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:44.100
  • abundantly, above and beyond what I can ask or think.
  • 00:19:44.110 --> 00:19:48.040
  • Aw, y'all got to stop, y'all got to stop.
  • 00:19:48.050 --> 00:19:52.060
  • Praise him according to his excellent greatness, verse 3.
  • 00:19:53.200 --> 00:19:56.200
  • Praise him with the sound of the trumpet,
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:58.070
  • praise him with the lute, praise him with the harp.
  • 00:19:58.080 --> 00:19:59.250
  • Verse 4, praise him with the timbrel and the dance,
  • 00:19:59.260 --> 00:20:02.050
  • praise him with the stringed instruments and the flutes.
  • 00:20:02.060 --> 00:20:03.280
  • Verse 5, praise him with the loud cymbals,
  • 00:20:03.290 --> 00:20:06.030
  • praise him with the clashing cymbals.
  • 00:20:06.040 --> 00:20:07.170
  • Verse 6, let everything that has (air blowing) praise the...
  • 00:20:07.180 --> 00:20:11.030
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:14.260
  • (congregation applauding and cheering)
  • 00:20:14.270 --> 00:20:19.150
  • Now go back to Psalm 149.
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:25.050
  • Let the saints, somebody say that's me,
  • 00:20:28.150 --> 00:20:30.260
  • - [Congregation] That's me.
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:32.030
  • - Be joyful in glory and let them sing,
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:33.160
  • (laughing) he says go to bed singing.
  • 00:20:33.170 --> 00:20:36.290
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:20:37.000 --> 00:20:38.080
  • - Go to bed singing.
  • 00:20:38.090 --> 00:20:39.120
  • Let them sing aloud on their beds.
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:43.170
  • Verse 6, let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
  • 00:20:43.180 --> 00:20:48.040
  • and a two edged sword in their hand.
  • 00:20:48.050 --> 00:20:49.280
  • I don't even have time to fool with that,
  • 00:20:49.290 --> 00:20:51.220
  • but God said and one,
  • 00:20:51.230 --> 00:20:53.090
  • the word of God is a double edged sword,
  • 00:20:53.100 --> 00:20:55.250
  • so in one side of your mouth have praises going out,
  • 00:20:55.260 --> 00:20:58.120
  • and another side having a sword against your enemy.
  • 00:20:58.130 --> 00:21:00.250
  • So I'm praising on one side
  • 00:21:00.260 --> 00:21:02.090
  • and I'm warring on the other side.
  • 00:21:02.100 --> 00:21:03.280
  • And my mouth is doing both.
  • 00:21:03.290 --> 00:21:05.270
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:21:05.280 --> 00:21:08.280
  • Here's why I spent the majority of the service
  • 00:21:08.290 --> 00:21:11.130
  • to tell you who you are.
  • 00:21:11.140 --> 00:21:12.270
  • To execute vengeance on the nations,
  • 00:21:15.240 --> 00:21:20.150
  • and punishment on the peoples, next verse,
  • 00:21:20.160 --> 00:21:23.020
  • to bind their kings with chains,
  • 00:21:23.030 --> 00:21:24.110
  • and their nobles with fetters.
  • 00:21:24.120 --> 00:21:25.180
  • Now I'm reading out of the Old Testament.
  • 00:21:25.190 --> 00:21:27.130
  • In the Old Testament, everything is outer and physical.
  • 00:21:27.140 --> 00:21:30.080
  • There was a physical Israel, a physical people of God.
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:33.230
  • They owned physical land, the promised land.
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:36.010
  • And they had physical enemies.
  • 00:21:36.020 --> 00:21:38.030
  • In the New Testament, everything is spiritual and inner,
  • 00:21:38.040 --> 00:21:41.170
  • so when he starts talking about nations,
  • 00:21:41.180 --> 00:21:44.000
  • and when he starts talking about nobles and fetters,
  • 00:21:44.010 --> 00:21:45.250
  • he's talking about powers of darkness and principalities,
  • 00:21:45.260 --> 00:21:49.160
  • and demonic forces.
  • 00:21:49.170 --> 00:21:51.020
  • He's saying to execute on them the written judgment,
  • 00:21:52.170 --> 00:21:56.280
  • this honor has all the saints.
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:22:02.160
  • I had to tell you who you are to know what it is
  • 00:22:03.280 --> 00:22:06.220
  • your honor to be able to do.
  • 00:22:06.230 --> 00:22:08.050
  • When you praise God, there is jubilance in the room,
  • 00:22:09.290 --> 00:22:14.200
  • that's what's happening for us.
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:17.020
  • What happens with God?
  • 00:22:17.030 --> 00:22:18.260
  • He comes and inhabits your praise.
  • 00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:20.220
  • But what's happening to your enemy?
  • 00:22:21.250 --> 00:22:23.260
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:22:23.270 --> 00:22:25.160
  • There are three dynamics going on
  • 00:22:25.170 --> 00:22:27.130
  • when you act crazy,
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:28.200
  • like you been acting in this last 30 minutes.
  • 00:22:28.210 --> 00:22:30.250
  • There's something happening with God,
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:34.080
  • he's beginning to inhabit.
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:35.220
  • There's something happening with you,
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:37.070
  • in the presence of the Lord is fullness of joy.
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:39.210
  • But there's something happening to your enemy.
  • 00:22:39.220 --> 00:22:41.280
  • There is a judgment written against your enemy.
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:45.060
  • And when you begin to praise God,
  • 00:22:46.100 --> 00:22:48.030
  • God begins to send out ambushes against your enemy.
  • 00:22:48.040 --> 00:22:51.250
  • In other words, the enemy that has come to ambush you,
  • 00:22:51.260 --> 00:22:55.130
  • God takes your praise and releases an ambush against them.
  • 00:22:55.140 --> 00:22:59.100
  • So when you praise God, you are turning on them,
  • 00:22:59.110 --> 00:23:02.050
  • the thing that they been bringing to you.
  • 00:23:02.060 --> 00:23:04.080
  • You're actually turning it around.
  • 00:23:04.090 --> 00:23:06.090
  • If anybody has been hassled by the enemy,
  • 00:23:06.100 --> 00:23:09.000
  • this last week, month, or year,
  • 00:23:09.010 --> 00:23:11.050
  • I'm going to give you 30 seconds
  • 00:23:11.060 --> 00:23:13.050
  • to send an ambush against your enemy,
  • 00:23:13.060 --> 00:23:15.270
  • and turn what's been happening to you back on him.
  • 00:23:15.280 --> 00:23:19.070
  • Three, two, one, praise your God.
  • 00:23:19.080 --> 00:23:22.080
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:23:22.090 --> 00:23:23.280
  • (congregation cheering and shouting)
  • 00:23:23.290 --> 00:23:28.110
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:40.100
  • (uplifting music)
  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:43.060
  • - You know what, I just appreciate so much
  • 00:24:10.280 --> 00:24:12.180
  • the fact that you've given me a little bit of your time,
  • 00:24:12.190 --> 00:24:14.180
  • and if you would, without clicking off,
  • 00:24:14.190 --> 00:24:16.210
  • without moving on,
  • 00:24:16.220 --> 00:24:18.060
  • if you'd just let me have your attention for a few minutes.
  • 00:24:18.070 --> 00:24:19.180
  • What if you could chase your dreams
  • 00:24:19.190 --> 00:24:22.180
  • within unlimited resources?
  • 00:24:22.190 --> 00:24:24.040
  • What if you could chase your dreams
  • 00:24:25.100 --> 00:24:27.090
  • not having to worry about resources or the lack thereof
  • 00:24:27.100 --> 00:24:30.080
  • playing a part in your decision-making?
  • 00:24:30.090 --> 00:24:32.110
  • You know what, I believe
  • 00:24:32.120 --> 00:24:34.130
  • that God wanted us to be able to expand the kingdom
  • 00:24:34.140 --> 00:24:37.180
  • without having to cross over the lines
  • 00:24:37.190 --> 00:24:39.260
  • of scarcity and lack, and not enough.
  • 00:24:39.270 --> 00:24:42.170
  • I believe that we are supposed to move into opportunities.
  • 00:24:42.180 --> 00:24:45.120
  • I believe we're supposed to go into areas,
  • 00:24:45.130 --> 00:24:47.090
  • and supposed to have the bountiful resources
  • 00:24:47.100 --> 00:24:49.190
  • because God said I am able to make all grace abound to you
  • 00:24:49.200 --> 00:24:54.200
  • so that you abound in every good work.
  • 00:24:55.250 --> 00:24:57.120
  • So no matter what the work is I'm doing,
  • 00:24:57.130 --> 00:24:59.250
  • God has made all grace abound to me.
  • 00:24:59.260 --> 00:25:02.200
  • What is grace?
  • 00:25:02.210 --> 00:25:03.270
  • It is giving what I don't deserve.
  • 00:25:03.280 --> 00:25:05.240
  • So I believe God is able to come to you,
  • 00:25:05.250 --> 00:25:08.030
  • and allow you to chase the things in your life
  • 00:25:08.040 --> 00:25:10.230
  • that he's put before you.
  • 00:25:10.240 --> 00:25:12.040
  • But I don't believe he wants you to do it
  • 00:25:12.050 --> 00:25:13.240
  • always having to check your checking account
  • 00:25:13.250 --> 00:25:15.220
  • or your bank account to see if you can obey God,
  • 00:25:15.230 --> 00:25:18.080
  • but obey God, knowing that he will provide.
  • 00:25:18.090 --> 00:25:21.240
  • Part of the way he provides
  • 00:25:21.250 --> 00:25:23.240
  • is because he has channels of blessing
  • 00:25:23.250 --> 00:25:25.170
  • he flows through others.
  • 00:25:25.180 --> 00:25:26.170
  • Would you be one of those people?
  • 00:25:26.180 --> 00:25:28.190
  • Would you consider being a channel of blessing,
  • 00:25:28.200 --> 00:25:31.030
  • through which God flows?
  • 00:25:31.040 --> 00:25:32.090
  • We commit to you that we will preach
  • 00:25:32.100 --> 00:25:33.230
  • the uncompromised word of God,
  • 00:25:33.240 --> 00:25:35.260
  • and we're working as a team as hard as we can
  • 00:25:35.270 --> 00:25:38.190
  • to represent Jesus as excellently
  • 00:25:38.200 --> 00:25:40.110
  • throughout the whole globe.
  • 00:25:40.120 --> 00:25:41.270
  • And we want everybody to know that Jesus saves,
  • 00:25:41.280 --> 00:25:44.190
  • Jesus delivers, and he heals.
  • 00:25:44.200 --> 00:25:46.210
  • And know the good news of his kingdom.
  • 00:25:46.220 --> 00:25:48.280
  • So if you've been supporting I ask you please continue.
  • 00:25:48.290 --> 00:25:52.070
  • If you haven't and you've been thinking about it,
  • 00:25:52.080 --> 00:25:54.100
  • or maybe you've never even been told that you should,
  • 00:25:54.110 --> 00:25:56.250
  • there is a law that happens, when something's blessing you,
  • 00:25:56.260 --> 00:25:59.100
  • if you turn around and bless it,
  • 00:25:59.110 --> 00:26:01.070
  • you begin to complete a cycle of blessing,
  • 00:26:01.080 --> 00:26:03.290
  • in our life and in yours.
  • 00:26:04.000 --> 00:26:05.260
  • Would you consider whether it's a one time gift
  • 00:26:05.270 --> 00:26:07.270
  • or become a monthly partner, and be a part of this family.
  • 00:26:07.280 --> 00:26:10.180
  • Would you consider doing something for the very first time?
  • 00:26:10.190 --> 00:26:13.130
  • I'm going to send you this gift if you do,
  • 00:26:13.140 --> 00:26:15.260
  • that just simply says thank you.
  • 00:26:15.270 --> 00:26:17.150
  • We are so grateful for everything.
  • 00:26:17.160 --> 00:26:19.150
