  • HI, I'M KRIS VALLOTTON AND I'M
  • 00:00:43.220 --> 00:00:45.000
  • THRILLED THAT THE BETHEL FAMILY

  • CALLED: JOURNEY TO DIVINE
  • 00:00:53.110 --> 00:00:55.170
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:00:55.170 --> 00:00:57.050
  • IN PART ONE, I UNPACKED THE
  • 00:00:57.050 --> 00:00:58.130
  • BIRTH OF JESUS FOUND IN THE
  • 00:00:58.130 --> 00:01:00.050
  • GOSPELS AND I ALSO TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:01:00.050 --> 00:01:01.240
  • HOW GOD IS PRESENT AND ACTIVE
  • 00:01:01.240 --> 00:01:03.270
  • IN OUR CIRCUMSTANCES, MAKING
  • 00:01:03.270 --> 00:01:05.030
  • ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR
  • 00:01:05.030 --> 00:01:06.050
  • GOOD FOR US.
  • 00:01:06.050 --> 00:01:06.240
  • IN PART TWO, WE'RE GOING DEEPER
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:08.200
  • INTO THE CHRISTMAS STORY AND
  • 00:01:08.200 --> 00:01:10.020
  • SOME OF THE PROPHECIES THAT
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:11.060
  • WERE FULFILLED THROUGH THE
  • 00:01:11.060 --> 00:01:12.100
  • ONE THING WE CAN KNOW FOR SURE
  • 00:01:15.110 --> 00:01:16.030
  • IS THAT THE DEVIL WILL USE
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:16.230
  • TRAGEDY TO ATTEMPT TO REDIRECT
  • 00:01:16.230 --> 00:01:18.170
  • OUR LIVES.
  • 00:01:18.170 --> 00:01:20.030
  • BUT GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL.
  • 00:01:20.030 --> 00:01:22.040
  • HIS PLANS CAN NEVER BE
  • 00:01:22.040 --> 00:01:23.190
  • THWARTED.
  • 00:01:23.190 --> 00:01:25.130
  • BE ENCOURAGED THAT GOD IS WITH
  • 00:01:25.130 --> 00:01:26.290
  • YOU AND HE KNOWS YOU, AND HE'S
  • 00:01:26.290 --> 00:01:28.160
  • WORKING IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:01:28.160 --> 00:01:30.180
  • MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU FROM THE
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:31.230
  • BETHEL FAMILY AND HOPE YOU
  • 00:01:31.230 --> 00:01:32.260
  • SEE YOU SOON.

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:01:35.260 --> 00:01:36.130
  • LET'S GO BACK TO
  • 00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:36.280
  • MATTHEW TELLS A COMPLETELY
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:40.240
  • DIFFERENT STORY ABOUT...THE
  • 00:01:40.240 --> 00:01:42.060
  • BIRTH OF JESUS.
  • 00:01:42.060 --> 00:01:44.180
  • AND I THINK THAT OFTENTIMES
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:49.160
  • THESE TWO STORIES GET
  • 00:01:49.160 --> 00:01:50.220
  • HOMOGENATED, AS IF THEY
  • 00:01:50.220 --> 00:01:52.210
  • HAPPENED SIMULTANEOUSLY -- AND
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:54.090
  • ESPECIALLY IN NATIVITY SCENES,
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:56.240
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:01:56.240 --> 00:01:57.080
  • YOU HAVE THE SHEPHERDS, YOU
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:01:58.210
  • HAVE THE KINGS, THESE THREE
  • 00:01:58.210 --> 00:02:00.050
  • KINGS, AND, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:00.050 --> 00:02:01.160
  • HOW EXCITING THIS IS TO YOU,
  • 00:02:01.170 --> 00:02:04.170
  • BUT I'D LIKE TO SHOW YOU THAT
  • 00:02:04.210 --> 00:02:07.210
  • THIS DID NOT HAPPEN AT
  • 00:02:07.210 --> 00:02:09.160
  • THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:11.090
  • IT DIDN'T EVEN HAPPEN AT
  • 00:02:11.090 --> 00:02:11.270
  • THE SAME PLACE.
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:12.220
  • VERSE 2 OF-- I'M SORRY --
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:13.160
  • VERSE 1 OF CHAPTER 2
  • 00:02:13.160 --> 00:02:14.140
  • OF MATTHEW.
  • 00:02:14.140 --> 00:02:16.100
  • "NOW, AFTER JESUS WAS BORN IN

  • 00:02:37.290 --> 00:02:40.250
  • WHEN HEROD THE KING HEARD THIS,
  • 00:02:40.250 --> 00:02:41.200
  • HE WAS TROUBLED, AND ALL
  • 00:02:41.200 --> 00:02:44.000
  • JERUSALEM WITH HIM.

  • CHIEF PRIESTS AND SCRIBES OF
  • 00:02:47.030 --> 00:02:48.090
  • THE PEOPLE, HE INQUIRED OF THEM

  • TO BE BORN.
  • 00:02:50.250 --> 00:02:52.060
  • THEY SAID TO HIM, 'IN BETHLEHEM

  • OF JUDEA; FOR THIS IS WHAT HAS
  • 00:02:53.110 --> 00:02:55.030
  • BEEN WRITTEN BY THE PROPHET:

  • "AND YOU, BETHLEHEM, LAND OF

  • A RULER WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY

  • PEOPLE ISRAEL.'"
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:11.150
  • THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING.
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:12.050
  • WE GET INTRODUCED TO A
  • 00:03:12.050 --> 00:03:13.110
  • COMPLETELY DIFFERENT GROUP
  • 00:03:13.110 --> 00:03:14.000
  • OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:03:14.000 --> 00:03:14.140
  • NOW, WE DON'T HAVE
  • 00:03:14.140 --> 00:03:14.290
  • THE SHEPHERDS.
  • 00:03:14.290 --> 00:03:15.130
  • WE HAVE THE MAGI.
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:17.030
  • AND I DID QUITE A BIT
  • 00:03:17.030 --> 00:03:19.140
  • OF RESEARCH.
  • 00:03:19.140 --> 00:03:20.060
  • I HAD DONE SOME EARLIER,
  • 00:03:20.060 --> 00:03:21.070
  • BECAUSE OF ANOTHER SUBJECT I
  • 00:03:21.070 --> 00:03:23.070
  • BUT THE MAGI, UM...SOME
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:27.050
  • PEOPLE-- I THINK THE KING JAMES
  • 00:03:27.050 --> 00:03:29.010
  • BIBLE SAYS THEY WERE WISE MEN,
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:29.270
  • CALLS THEM WISE MEN
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:31.050
  • INSTEAD OF MAGI.
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:33.200
  • BUT, ACTUALLY, THERE'S NO
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:34.090
  • PLACE IN GREEK LANGUAGE
  • 00:03:34.090 --> 00:03:37.000
  • FOR THAT THEY WERE
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:39.100
  • WISE MEN OR THAT THEY
  • 00:03:39.100 --> 00:03:39.280
  • WERE KINGS.
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:41.170
  • OR THAT THERE WAS THREE
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:42.070
  • OF THEM.
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:43.120
  • IN FACT, TRADITION SAYS
  • 00:03:43.120 --> 00:03:44.020
  • THERE WAS PROBABLY 11 OR 12
  • 00:03:44.020 --> 00:03:44.220
  • OF THEM.
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:45.260
  • AND THEY CAME FROM THE EAST AND
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:47.110
  • THEY WERE ACTUALLY ASTROLOGERS.
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:49.140
  • NOT ASTRONOMERS.
  • 00:03:49.180 --> 00:03:52.180
  • THEY WERE ASTROLOGERS.
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:54.170
  • THEY WERE STARGAZERS WHO KNEW
  • 00:03:54.170 --> 00:03:56.170
  • THE BIBLE AND LOVED GOD.
  • 00:03:56.170 --> 00:03:58.020
  • THEY WERE NOT SHEPHERDS THAT
  • 00:03:58.250 --> 00:04:01.270
  • HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH ANGELS.
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:03.130
  • THEY WERE ACTUALLY ASTROLOGERS
  • 00:04:03.130 --> 00:04:05.210
  • WHO WERE WATCHING THE STARS TO
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:07.280
  • HEAR WHAT GOD HAD TO SAY ABOUT
  • 00:04:07.280 --> 00:04:10.040
  • NOW, I'LL REMIND YOU THAT
  • 00:04:13.110 --> 00:04:14.000
  • ROMANS SAYS THAT GOD'S
  • 00:04:14.000 --> 00:04:14.220
  • INVISIBLE ATTRIBUTES AND HIS
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:15.120
  • ETERNAL POWER AND DIVINE NATURE
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:16.170
  • ARE CLEARLY SEEN IN WHAT
  • 00:04:16.170 --> 00:04:17.190
  • GOD MADE.
  • 00:04:17.190 --> 00:04:19.220
  • ANOTHER REALLY INTERESTING,
  • 00:04:19.220 --> 00:04:21.270
  • VERSE IS IN GENESIS 1:14.
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:24.120
  • AND THIS IS GOD WHEN HE'S
  • 00:04:24.140 --> 00:04:27.140
  • CREATING THE EARTH, AND HE SAYS
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:28.160
  • -- I THINK IT'S DAY TWO --
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:30.270
  • "THEN GOD SAID, 'LET THERE BE
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:32.150
  • LIGHTS IN THE EXPANSE OF THE
  • 00:04:32.150 --> 00:04:33.290
  • HEAVENS TO SEPARATE THE DAY
  • 00:04:33.290 --> 00:04:34.260
  • FROM THE NIGHT..."
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:38.230
  • AND LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 00:04:38.230 --> 00:04:39.090
  • "...AND LET THEM BE
  • 00:04:39.090 --> 00:04:39.250
  • FOR SIGNS..."
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:40.090
  • EVERYBODY SAY: FOR SIGNS.
  • 00:04:40.090 --> 00:04:41.030
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:04:41.030 --> 00:04:41.290
  • "...FOR SEASONS..."
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:42.150
  • EVERYBODY SAY: FOR SEASONS.
  • 00:04:42.150 --> 00:04:43.070
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:04:43.070 --> 00:04:44.050
  • "...FOR DAYS..."
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:44.190
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:04:44.190 --> 00:04:45.130
  • "...AND YEARS..."
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.130
  • [AUDIENCE REPEATS]
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:47.010
  • SO, GOD PUT-- NOW, YOU SEE THAT
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:49.130
  • GOD IS NOW CREATING THE SUN AND
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:51.010
  • THE MOON, AND HE'S CREATING THE
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:52.150
  • STARS AND ALL OF THE LIGHTS IN
  • 00:04:52.150 --> 00:04:53.170
  • THE HEAVENS.
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:56.190
  • THIS IS GOD, NOW -- PHWOOH! --
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:59.100
  • YOU KNOW, WHILE HE'S CREATING
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:01.030
  • THE EARTH, HE'S LIKE -- SHOOH!
  • 00:05:01.030 --> 00:05:01.240
  • -- CREATING THE HEAVENS.
  • 00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:02.270
  • AND WHEN HE CREATES THE HEAVENS
  • 00:05:02.270 --> 00:05:04.120
  • AND PUTS THE STARS AND THE MOON
  • 00:05:04.120 --> 00:05:06.120
  • AND ALL OF THAT AND HOWEVER GOD
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:08.000
  • DOES THAT, IT SAYS THAT GOD
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:09.070
  • FIRST DID IT FOR SIGNS, THEN
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:11.280
  • FOR SEASONS, THEN FOR
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:14.000
  • DAYS...AND FOR YEARS.
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:17.170
  • SEE, PART OF THE CHALLENGE IS
  • 00:05:17.170 --> 00:05:18.280
  • IS THAT WHENEVER THE DEVIL DOES
  • 00:05:18.280 --> 00:05:20.180
  • SOMETHING, WE RUN AWAY FROM IT
  • 00:05:20.180 --> 00:05:21.170
  • -- "WELL, THAT'S THE DEVIL..."
  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:22.190
  • -- NOT REALIZING THAT IF THE
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:26.070
  • DEVIL-- IF THE DEVIL-- IF THE
  • 00:05:26.070 --> 00:05:28.090
  • DEVIL COUNTERFEITS SOMETHING,
  • 00:05:28.090 --> 00:05:30.050
  • THEN IT MUST BE VALUABLE.
  • 00:05:30.050 --> 00:05:33.010
  • BECAUSE NOBODY COUNTERFEITS
  • 00:05:33.010 --> 00:05:35.020
  • STUFF THAT DOESN'T MATTER!
  • 00:05:37.280 --> 00:05:40.280
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE: "KRIS, DO YOU
  • 00:05:40.280 --> 00:05:41.190
  • BELIEVE IN CHRISTIAN
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:42.050
  • ASTROLOGERS?"
  • 00:05:42.050 --> 00:05:44.160
  • NO, BUT I DO BELIEVE IN
  • 00:05:44.160 --> 00:05:45.040
  • CHRISTIAN STARGAZERS...
  • 00:05:45.040 --> 00:05:46.090
  • ...IN THIS WAY: I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:05:47.080 --> 00:05:50.080
  • ALL CREATION IS TELLING THE
  • 00:05:50.080 --> 00:05:52.110
  • NOW, YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:05:56.230 --> 00:05:57.150
  • THAT-- NOW, THIS IS
  • 00:05:57.150 --> 00:05:58.290
  • ABSOLUTELY TRUE.
  • 00:05:58.290 --> 00:06:00.030
  • LIKE, THERE'S NO DEBATE ABOUT
  • 00:06:00.190 --> 00:06:03.190
  • THIS AMONG THEOLOGIANS.
  • 00:06:03.190 --> 00:06:05.160
  • THESE MAGI WERE ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:06:05.160 --> 00:06:06.270
  • STARGAZERS.
  • 00:06:06.270 --> 00:06:08.250
  • AND FOR GENERATIONS.
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:11.030
  • LIKE, MY FATHER WAS A
  • 00:06:11.030 --> 00:06:12.100
  • STARGAZER, MY GRANDFATHER
  • 00:06:12.100 --> 00:06:13.250
  • WAS A STARGAZER.
  • 00:06:13.250 --> 00:06:14.100
  • YOU GET IT?
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:15.000
  • AND THEY PREDICTED THE FUTURE
  • 00:06:15.090 --> 00:06:18.090
  • THROUGH THIS STARGAZING.
  • 00:06:18.090 --> 00:06:19.200
  • MOST OF THEM WERE NOT
  • 00:06:19.200 --> 00:06:22.040
  • "GOD-BELIEVING BELIEVERS."
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:24.120
  • THESE GUYS WERE.
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:24.290
  • HOW DO WE KNOW THAT?
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:26.000
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE AWARE THAT
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:28.000
  • THE SCRIPTURE TALKED ABOUT A
  • 00:06:28.000 --> 00:06:28.290
  • CHILD BEING BORN AND WHERE
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:30.140
  • IT WAS BORN.
  • 00:06:30.140 --> 00:06:31.120
  • THEY ACTUALLY INFORMED HEROD
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:32.240
  • ABOUT THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:06:32.240 --> 00:06:34.250
  • SO, THESE FOLKS WERE CONNECTED
  • 00:06:34.250 --> 00:06:36.220
  • TO THE TORAH AND CONNECTED TO
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:39.260
  • THE OLD COVENANT, FOR SURE, AND
  • 00:06:39.280 --> 00:06:42.280
  • PROBABLY CONNECTED TO DANIEL.
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:44.080
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:47.030
  • SO, THEY'RE WATCHING THE STARS.
  • 00:06:47.030 --> 00:06:47.280
  • NOW, I'M NOT SAYING JOE'S
  • 00:06:47.280 --> 00:06:49.020
  • WATCHING THE STARS.
  • 00:06:49.020 --> 00:06:50.000
  • I'M SAYING JOE, HIS GRANDFATHER,
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:52.020
  • HIS GREAT-GRANDFATHER --
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:53.140
  • THEY'RE WATCHING THE STARS
  • 00:06:53.140 --> 00:06:54.080
  • AND THEY NOTICE A NEW STAR.
  • 00:06:54.080 --> 00:06:55.160
  • A NEW STAR!
  • 00:06:57.010 --> 00:07:00.030
  • AND THEY SOMEHOW CONNECT THAT
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:01.160
  • THAT STAR IS THE STAR...
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:03.210
  • OF JESUS.
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:08.170
  • THE STAR OF THE SAVIOR
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:09.040
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:07:09.040 --> 00:07:09.250
  • HOW THEY CONNECTED THOSE
  • 00:07:09.250 --> 00:07:11.090
  • PIECES...IS A MIRACLE.
  • 00:07:11.100 --> 00:07:14.100
  • AND THEY NOTICED THAT THE STAR
  • 00:07:14.180 --> 00:07:17.180
  • IS MOVING.
  • 00:07:18.240 --> 00:07:21.240
  • SO, THEY FOLLOW THE STAR!
  • 00:07:23.260 --> 00:07:26.260
  • FROM THE EAST!
  • 00:07:26.260 --> 00:07:27.190
  • WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT A
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:28.270
  • ONE-WEEK JOURNEY.
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:29.190
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AN
  • 00:07:29.190 --> 00:07:32.150
  • 18- TO 20-MONTH JOURNEY.
  • 00:07:32.150 --> 00:07:33.070
  • THEY SEE THE STAR WHEN
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:35.000
  • JESUS IS BORN.
  • 00:07:35.000 --> 00:07:36.070
  • THEY START FOLLOWING IT.
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:37.130
  • IT TAKES 'EM ALMOST TWO YEARS
  • 00:07:37.130 --> 00:07:38.040
  • TO GET THERE.
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.270
  • HOW DO WE KNOW THAT?
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:42.070
  • HOW OLD WERE THE CHILDREN THAT
  • 00:07:42.070 --> 00:07:43.100
  • HEROD KILLED?
  • 00:07:43.250 --> 00:07:46.250
  • THEY WERE 2 YEARS AND UNDER
  • 00:07:46.250 --> 00:07:47.290
  • BECAUSE HE ASCERTAINED THE TIME
  • 00:07:48.230 --> 00:07:51.230
  • OF THE BIRTH OF JESUS
  • 00:07:51.230 --> 00:07:52.160
  • FROM THE MAGI.
  • 00:07:54.110 --> 00:07:57.110
  • SO, THE MAGI WERE NOT THERE
  • 00:07:57.110 --> 00:07:58.010
  • WHEN THE SHEPHERDS WERE THERE.
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:58.290
  • THEY WERE THERE TWO YEARS
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:00.070
  • LATER, ALMOST TWO YEARS LATER,
  • 00:08:00.070 --> 00:08:01.170
  • AND PROBABLY--
  • 00:08:01.170 --> 00:08:04.130
  • WELL, LET'S SEE.
  • 00:08:07.150 --> 00:08:08.000
  • I'M GIVING IT AWAY.
  • 00:08:08.000 --> 00:08:08.180
  • VERSE 7.
  • 00:08:08.180 --> 00:08:09.100
  • "THEN HEROD SECRETLY CALLED THE
  • 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:10.020
  • MAGI AND DETERMINED FROM THEM
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:11.190
  • THE EXACT TIME THE
  • 00:08:11.190 --> 00:08:12.240
  • STAR APPEARED.
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:13.090
  • AND HE SENT THEM TO BETHLEHEM
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.060
  • AND SAID, 'GO AND SEARCH
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:16.050
  • CAREFULLY FOR THE CHILD; AND
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:18.150
  • WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND HIM, REPORT
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:19.240
  • TO ME, SO THAT I TOO MAY COME
  • 00:08:19.240 --> 00:08:21.050
  • AND WORSHIP HIM.'"
  • 00:08:21.050 --> 00:08:22.140
  • NOW, HOW MANY KNOW HE'S NOT
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:23.050
  • GONNA COME AND WORSHIP HIM?
  • 00:08:23.050 --> 00:08:24.020
  • I MEAN, THE MAGI, PROBABLY NOT
  • 00:08:24.020 --> 00:08:25.190
  • UNDERSTANDING KINGS --
  • 00:08:25.190 --> 00:08:27.280
  • THEY TELL KING HEROD EVERYTHING.
  • 00:08:28.190 --> 00:08:31.190
  • "YEAH, A KING'S BORN!"
  • 00:08:31.190 --> 00:08:33.040
  • "WELL, I AM A KING.
  • 00:08:33.040 --> 00:08:35.160
  • AND HE'S ACTUALLY BORN IN A
  • 00:08:35.160 --> 00:08:36.220
  • CITY I'M RULING."
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:38.220
  • THAT DOESN'T GO OVER TOO WELL.
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:40.180
  • LIKE: WE ALREADY HAVE ONE KING.
  • 00:08:40.180 --> 00:08:42.090
  • WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER KING.
  • 00:08:42.110 --> 00:08:45.110
  • SO, WE'LL DO WHAT KINGS DO.
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:46.210
  • WE'LL JUST KILL OFF THE LINEAGE
  • 00:08:46.210 --> 00:08:47.200
  • OF ANY OTHER KING.
  • 00:08:47.200 --> 00:08:48.260
  • AND SO, --
  • 00:08:48.260 --> 00:08:51.130
  • "AFTER HEARING THE KING, THEY
  • 00:08:51.130 --> 00:08:53.040
  • WENT THEIR WAY; AND THE STAR,
  • 00:08:53.040 --> 00:08:54.250
  • WHICH THEY HAD SEEN IN THE
  • 00:08:54.250 --> 00:08:57.060
  • EAST, WENT ON BEFORE THEM UNTIL
  • 00:08:57.060 --> 00:08:58.020
  • IT CAME AND STOOD OVER THE
  • 00:08:58.020 --> 00:09:00.130
  • PLACE WHERE THE CHILD WAS."
  • 00:09:00.130 --> 00:09:01.080
  • HAVE WE HEARD THIS STORY TOO
  • 00:09:01.080 --> 00:09:03.100
  • MANY TIMES TO REALIZE HOW
  • 00:09:03.100 --> 00:09:05.010
  • MIRACULOUS THIS IS?
  • 00:09:05.010 --> 00:09:07.270
  • "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"
  • 00:09:10.040 --> 00:09:10.210
  • "I'M FOLLOWING THE STAR."
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:12.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:12.240
  • LIKE, THEY LITERALLY ARE
  • 00:09:12.240 --> 00:09:13.120
  • FOLLOWING A STAR.
  • 00:09:13.120 --> 00:09:15.030
  • AND THE STAR STOPS AND THEY GO:
  • 00:09:15.030 --> 00:09:16.190
  • MUST BE THE PLACE.
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.280
  • YOU KNOW, LIKE GPS SAYS:
  • 00:09:18.280 --> 00:09:19.160
  • "YOU HAVE ARRIVED."
  • 00:09:19.160 --> 00:09:20.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:23.050
  • AND, LIKE THIS-- DO YOU
  • 00:09:23.050 --> 00:09:23.230
  • UNDERSTAND?
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:24.070
  • THESE GUYS HAVE TRAVELED FOR 18
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:26.060
  • MONTHS, FROM THE EAST, PROBABLY
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:28.080
  • ON CAMEL, MOST LIKELY.
  • 00:09:28.080 --> 00:09:30.160
  • THEY THINK MOST OF THESE GUYS
  • 00:09:30.160 --> 00:09:33.030
  • WERE PROBABLY FROM CHINA.
  • 00:09:33.030 --> 00:09:35.270
  • THAT IS A LONG WAYS TO TRAVEL.
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:37.030
  • HOW WILL THEY KNOW-- HOW DO
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:38.070
  • THEY KNOW WHERE TO GO?
  • 00:09:38.070 --> 00:09:40.170
  • THEY'RE FOLLOWING A STAR!
  • 00:09:40.230 --> 00:09:43.230
  • YOU KNOW, WE WRITE IT IN SONGS:
  • 00:09:43.260 --> 00:09:46.260
  • "I JUST MUST FOLLOW
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:47.120
  • THE STAR..."
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:48.070
  • BUT THEY ACTUALLY DID FOLLOW A
  • 00:09:48.070 --> 00:09:50.010
  • STAR!
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:53.150
  • AND THEN, THE STAR'S LIKE:
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:54.170
  • HAH...STAR MARKS THE PLACE.
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:57.210
  • OH, OKAY -- I'LL TELL YOU.
  • 00:10:05.220 --> 00:10:06.120
  • "WHEN THEY SAW THE STAR"--
  • 00:10:06.120 --> 00:10:07.010
  • [BABBLES]
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:07.240
  • "AFTER HEARING THE KING...

  • [BABBLES]
  • 00:10:08.150 --> 00:10:09.100
  • ...UNTIL IT CAME AND STOOD OVER
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:11.200
  • THE PLACE WHERE THE CHILD WAS.

  • GREAT JOY."

  • REMEMBER, THIS WAS, LIKE, A
  • 00:10:15.150 --> 00:10:17.210
  • MAJOR THING FOR THEM BECAUSE
  • 00:10:17.210 --> 00:10:18.140
  • THEY WERE STARGAZERS.

  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:24.210
  • OR WHEREVER.
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:25.190
  • BURGER KING!
  • 00:11:25.190 --> 00:11:27.200
  • HE'S KING OF KINGS--
  • 00:11:27.200 --> 00:11:29.210
  • I MEAN, YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST--
  • 00:11:29.210 --> 00:11:30.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:11:30.120 --> 00:11:32.140
  • CAME RIGHT TO ME.
  • 00:11:32.140 --> 00:11:32.290
  • I DON'T THINK IT WAS THE
  • 00:11:32.290 --> 00:11:33.210
  • RIGHT SPIRIT.
  • 00:11:33.210 --> 00:11:34.160
  • "WHEN THEY SAW THE STAR..."
  • 00:11:37.100 --> 00:11:38.270
  • IT'S VERSE 10.
  • 00:11:38.270 --> 00:11:40.120
  • "WHEN THEY SAW THE STAR, THEY
  • 00:11:40.120 --> 00:11:41.060
  • REJOICED EXCEEDINGLY WITH
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:41.250
  • GREAT JOY."
  • 00:11:41.250 --> 00:11:42.150
  • VERSE 11: "AFTER COMING INTO
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:43.210
  • THE HOUSE..."
  • 00:11:43.210 --> 00:11:45.190
  • DID YOU NOTICE THEY DIDN'T COME
  • 00:11:45.190 --> 00:11:46.110
  • INTO THE MANGER?
  • 00:11:46.110 --> 00:11:48.040
  • THEY CAME INTO THE HOUSE.
  • 00:11:48.040 --> 00:11:49.220
  • "...THEY SAW THE CHILD WITH
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:50.260
  • MARY HIS MOTHER..."
  • 00:11:50.260 --> 00:11:52.120
  • THEY SAW THE CHILD.
  • 00:11:52.120 --> 00:11:53.190
  • NOT AN INFANT.
  • 00:11:53.190 --> 00:11:54.070
  • A CHILD.
  • 00:11:54.070 --> 00:11:56.180
  • "...AND THEY FELL TO THE GROUND
  • 00:11:56.180 --> 00:11:57.190
  • AND WORSHIPED HIM.
  • 00:11:57.190 --> 00:11:58.170
  • THEN, OPENING THEIR TREASURES,
  • 00:11:58.170 --> 00:12:00.030
  • THEY PRESENTED TO HIM GIFTS OF
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:01.210
  • GOLD, FRANKINCENSE, AND MYRRH.
  • 00:12:01.210 --> 00:12:04.210
  • AND HAVING BEEN WARNED BY GOD
  • 00:12:04.210 --> 00:12:06.150
  • IN A DREAM NOT TO RETURN TO
  • 00:12:06.150 --> 00:12:08.010
  • HEROD, THE MAGI LEFT FOR THEIR
  • 00:12:08.010 --> 00:12:09.140
  • OWN COUNTRY BY ANOTHER WAY."
  • 00:12:09.140 --> 00:12:12.040
  • IS THAT AMAZING?
  • 00:12:12.040 --> 00:12:14.140
  • A FEW THINGS.
  • 00:12:17.030 --> 00:12:20.030
  • MY FATHER DROWNED WHEN I WAS 3.
  • 00:12:20.030 --> 00:12:21.170
  • I HAVE MEMORIES OF MY FATHER
  • 00:12:21.170 --> 00:12:22.210
  • BACK TO THE TIME I WAS
  • 00:12:22.210 --> 00:12:23.170
  • ABOUT 18 MONTHS.
  • 00:12:23.170 --> 00:12:24.050
  • WE LIVED IN A CERTAIN HOUSE
  • 00:12:24.050 --> 00:12:26.070
  • WHERE IT SNOWED.
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:28.270
  • I REMEMBER EVERYTHING THAT
  • 00:12:28.270 --> 00:12:30.090
  • HAPPENED IN THOSE DAYS.
  • 00:12:30.090 --> 00:12:30.280
  • I WOULD TELL MY MOTHER ABOUT MY
  • 00:12:30.280 --> 00:12:31.200
  • FATHER THROWING
  • 00:12:31.200 --> 00:12:32.210
  • SNOWBALLS AT ME.
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:33.280
  • AND MY MOM WOULD SAY, "YOU WERE
  • 00:12:33.280 --> 00:12:34.220
  • 2 WHEN THAT HAPPENED."
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:36.030
  • AND, THEN, I TALKED ABOUT THIS
  • 00:12:36.030 --> 00:12:38.040
  • OTHER THING THAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:12:38.040 --> 00:12:38.290
  • WE HAD THIS HOUSE THAT
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:39.160
  • HAD STAIRS.
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:41.110
  • AND SHE SAID: "OH, THAT
  • 00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:41.290
  • WAS IN HERLONG.
  • 00:12:41.290 --> 00:12:42.220
  • THAT WAS RIGHT BEFORE YOUR
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:43.200
  • FATHER DROWNED.
  • 00:12:43.200 --> 00:12:44.270
  • YOU JUST TURNED THREE WHEN
  • 00:12:44.270 --> 00:12:46.210
  • THAT HAPPENED."
  • 00:12:46.210 --> 00:12:48.060
  • LIKELY, JESUS WOULD HAVE
  • 00:12:48.060 --> 00:12:49.010
  • REMEMBERED THE MAGI EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:12:50.010 --> 00:12:53.010
  • BECAUSE HE WASN'T AN INFANT;
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:55.130
  • HE WAS A YOUNG CHILD.
  • 00:12:55.130 --> 00:12:57.210
  • THE OTHER THING THAT I THINK IS
  • 00:12:57.210 --> 00:12:58.130
  • IMPORTANT TO REALIZE IS THAT
  • 00:12:58.130 --> 00:12:59.170
  • THEY OPENED THEIR TREASURES AND
  • 00:12:59.170 --> 00:13:01.030
  • THEY PRESENTED HIM WITH GOLD,
  • 00:13:01.030 --> 00:13:03.040
  • FRANKINCENSE, AND MYRRH, WHICH,
  • 00:13:03.040 --> 00:13:04.100
  • YOU COULD IMAGINE, WERE ALL
  • 00:13:04.100 --> 00:13:05.290
  • VERY EXPENSIVE THINGS.
  • 00:13:05.290 --> 00:13:06.250
  • PROBABLY, THAT FUNDED MOST OF
  • 00:13:07.220 --> 00:13:10.220
  • JESUS' EARLY MINISTRY.
  • 00:13:10.220 --> 00:13:12.100
  • IT WAS KIND OF, IF YOU WILL,
  • 00:13:12.100 --> 00:13:14.070
  • THE INHERITANCE FROM THE
  • 00:13:14.070 --> 00:13:15.110
  • FATHER, GIVEN TO JESUS, SO THAT
  • 00:13:15.110 --> 00:13:17.120
  • JESUS COULD ACTUALLY MINISTER.
  • 00:13:17.120 --> 00:13:18.260
  • AND WE KNOW THAT, LATER ON,
  • 00:13:18.260 --> 00:13:20.250
  • OTHER PEOPLE GAVE TO HIS MEANS.
  • 00:13:20.250 --> 00:13:22.150
  • BUT WE'RE NOT TALKIN' ABOUT
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:23.110
  • THEY GAVE HIM A COUPLE OF
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:24.090
  • PIECES OF JEWELRY.
  • 00:13:24.090 --> 00:13:25.010
  • AND HERE'S A NECKLACE FOR YA.
  • 00:13:25.010 --> 00:13:27.160
  • WE'RE TALKIN' ABOUT THEY
  • 00:13:27.160 --> 00:13:28.040
  • ACTUALLY GAVE HIM LOTS
  • 00:13:28.040 --> 00:13:29.190
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE,
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:33.240
  • "JESUS WAS POOR."
  • 00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:34.210
  • NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:36.250
  • ACTUALLY, THE WEALTH OF THE
  • 00:13:36.250 --> 00:13:37.150
  • EAST WAS FLOWING TO JESUS
  • 00:13:37.150 --> 00:13:38.140
  • AS A CHILD.
  • 00:13:38.140 --> 00:13:40.280
  • AND I PROPOSE THAT IF ALL THAT
  • 00:13:40.280 --> 00:13:42.260
  • HAPPENED WHILE JESUS WAS A
  • 00:13:42.260 --> 00:13:43.150
  • CHILD -- WE DON'T HEAR ANYTHING
  • 00:13:43.150 --> 00:13:44.070
  • ELSE TILL HE'S 12 --
  • 00:13:44.070 --> 00:13:47.000
  • THAT PROBABLY OTHER THINGS
  • 00:13:47.000 --> 00:13:47.190
  • WERE HAPPENING.
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:48.200
  • I DOUBT THAT JESUS HAD-- YOU

  • KNOW, IT WAS, LIKE, TWO YEARS
  • 00:13:49.250 --> 00:13:50.250
  • OF SUPERNATURAL EXPERIENCES AND
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:51.230
  • THEN NOTHING TILL HE'S 30.
  • 00:13:51.230 --> 00:13:52.200
  • AND, ALL OF THESE SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:13:52.200 --> 00:13:54.220
  • OCCURRENCES WERE A PART OF THE
  • 00:13:54.220 --> 00:13:55.270
  • LIFE OF JESUS BECAUSE HE IS
  • 00:13:55.270 --> 00:13:58.180
  • IF THE DEVIL WOULD HAVE
  • 00:14:05.170 --> 00:14:06.050
  • REALIZED WHAT WAS HAPPENING
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:06.250
  • ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:14:06.250 --> 00:14:07.160

  • IN THE WORLD.

  • - KRIS: THERE WAS A LOT OF
  • 00:15:40.240 --> 00:15:41.140
  • PROPHETIC WORDS ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:15:41.140 --> 00:15:42.170
  • BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN.
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:47.060
  • AND THE CHALLENGE IS IS THAT HE
  • 00:15:47.060 --> 00:15:47.280
  • WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FROM FOUR
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:49.090
  • HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FROM
  • 00:15:52.120 --> 00:15:54.040
  • BETHLEHEM, FROM EGYPT, FROM
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:56.010
  • NAZARETH, AND FROM GALILEE.
  • 00:15:56.010 --> 00:15:58.110
  • FOUR DIFFERENT PROPHETS
  • 00:15:58.110 --> 00:16:00.130
  • PROPHESIED FOUR DIFFERENT
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:01.190
  • PLACES THAT JESUS
  • 00:16:01.190 --> 00:16:02.250
  • WOULD BE FROM.
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:04.150
  • SO, GOD HAD A GREAT WAY
  • 00:16:04.150 --> 00:16:05.140
  • TO SOLVE THAT.
  • 00:16:05.140 --> 00:16:06.220
  • HE MOVED JESUS AROUND.
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:08.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:08.060 --> 00:16:10.250
  • I'LL SHOW YOU.
  • 00:16:10.250 --> 00:16:11.280
  • MATTHEW 2:2:
  • 00:16:11.280 --> 00:16:13.250
  • "'WHERE IS HE WHO HAS BEEN
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:15.060
  • BORN KING OF THE JEWS?"
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:17.180
  • OH, THIS IS THE STAR IN THE
  • 00:16:17.180 --> 00:16:18.170
  • EAST, DAH, DAH, DAH.
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:19.070
  • AND, UM-- AND IT GOES ON TO
  • 00:16:19.070 --> 00:16:20.040
  • SAY, UM-- THIS IS THE--
  • 00:16:20.040 --> 00:16:20.230
  • I ALREADY READ THIS PASSAGE.
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:23.130
  • AND IT SAYS: "THEY SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:16:23.130 --> 00:16:24.050
  • 'IN BETHLEHEM OF JUDEA; FOR
  • 00:16:24.050 --> 00:16:26.020
  • HAS BEEN WRITTEN
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:28.040

  • "THAT FROM YOU, BETHLEHEM,

  • BY NO MEANS THE EAST..."'"
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:33.010
  • AND YOU GET THE IDEA.
  • 00:16:33.010 --> 00:16:33.190
  • SO, JESUS WAS PROPHESIED BY --
  • 00:16:33.190 --> 00:16:34.220
  • IN THIS CASE -- AN UNNAMED
  • 00:16:34.220 --> 00:16:37.150
  • PROPHET TO BE BORN
  • 00:16:37.150 --> 00:16:38.150
  • IN BETHLEHEM.
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:40.190
  • THAT'S ONE PLACE, RIGHT?
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:42.210
  • SO, THEN, IN VERSE 13, IT SAYS:
  • 00:16:42.210 --> 00:16:44.140
  • "NOW, WHEN THEY HAD GONE,
  • 00:16:44.140 --> 00:16:46.270
  • BEHOLD, AN ANGEL OF THE LORD

  • APPEARED TO JOSEPH IN A DREAM
  • 00:16:48.140 --> 00:16:49.110
  • AND SAID, 'GET UP!
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:50.150
  • TAKE THE CHILD AND HIS MOTHER
  • 00:16:50.150 --> 00:16:52.260
  • AND FLEE TO EGYPT...'"
  • 00:16:52.260 --> 00:16:54.090
  • OKAY, SO, HEROD IS TRYING
  • 00:16:54.090 --> 00:16:55.210
  • TO KILL THE CHILD.
  • 00:16:55.210 --> 00:16:57.160
  • YOU KNOW THE STORY.
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:16:58.030
  • AND HE'S WARNED BY AN ANGEL IN
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:17:00.250
  • THE DREAM -- JOSEPH AND MARY
  • 00:17:00.250 --> 00:17:01.220
  • ARE -- "GET UP, GET OUT OF
  • 00:17:01.220 --> 00:17:03.030
  • HERE, AND GO TO EGYPT."
  • 00:17:03.030 --> 00:17:04.250
  • SO, THEY GO TO EGYPT.
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:06.130
  • "SO, JOSEPH GOT UP AND TOOK THE
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:08.080
  • CHILD AND HIS MOTHER WHILE IT
  • 00:17:08.080 --> 00:17:09.230
  • WAS STILL NIGHT, AND LEFT
  • 00:17:09.230 --> 00:17:10.180
  • FOR EGYPT.
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:12.280
  • HE REMAINED THERE UNTIL THE
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:13.290
  • DEATH OF HEROD."
  • 00:17:13.290 --> 00:17:15.110
  • BUT LISTEN TO THE COMMENTARY
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:16.290
  • OF MATTHEW.
  • 00:17:16.290 --> 00:17:17.260
  • "THIS WAS TO FULFILL WHAT HAD
  • 00:17:17.260 --> 00:17:20.100
  • BEEN SPOKEN BY THE LORD THROUGH
  • 00:17:20.100 --> 00:17:21.270
  • THE PROPHET: 'OUT OF EGYPT, I
  • 00:17:21.270 --> 00:17:22.280
  • CALLED MY SON.'"
  • 00:17:23.050 --> 00:17:26.050
  • DID YOU GET WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:26.280
  • SO, ONE PROPHET SAID,
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:29.010
  • "HE WILL BE BORN IN BETHLEHEM."
  • 00:17:29.010 --> 00:17:31.090
  • ANOTHER PROPHET SAID, "HE'LL
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:32.180
  • COME OUT OF EGYPT."
  • 00:17:32.180 --> 00:17:33.280
  • SO, HEROD IS TRYING TO
  • 00:17:33.280 --> 00:17:36.200
  • KILL JESUS.
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:37.230
  • AND THE ANGEL SAID, "GET OUT OF
  • 00:17:37.230 --> 00:17:38.280
  • HERE SO HE DOESN'T KILL JESUS,
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:40.040
  • AND TAKE HIM TO EGYPT."
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:41.250
  • AND MATTHEW CONNECTS THAT HE
  • 00:17:41.250 --> 00:17:43.280
  • HAD TO GO TO EGYPT TO FULFILL
  • 00:17:43.280 --> 00:17:46.160
  • THE PROPHECY THAT "OUT OF EGYPT
  • 00:17:46.160 --> 00:17:48.050
  • HAVE I CALLED MY SON."
  • 00:17:48.050 --> 00:17:50.000
  • BUT LOOK AT THIS NEXT VERSE.
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:52.030
  • LOOK AT THE NEXT THING.
  • 00:17:52.030 --> 00:17:54.290
  • VERSE 19: "BUT WHEN HEROD
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:57.020
  • DIED, BEHOLD, AN ANGEL
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:17:57.190
  • OF THE LORD..."
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:59.110
  • THIS IS VERSE 19.
  • 00:17:59.110 --> 00:17:59.260
  • "....APPEARED...
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:00.240
  • TO HIM," IN CHAPTER 2.
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:01.170
  • "...IN A DREAM TO JOSEPH IN
  • 00:18:01.170 --> 00:18:02.070
  • EGYPT, AND SAID, 'GET UP, TAKE
  • 00:18:02.070 --> 00:18:03.200
  • THE CHILD AND HIS MOTHER, AND
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:05.260
  • GO INTO THE LAND OF ISRAEL; FOR
  • 00:18:05.260 --> 00:18:08.000
  • THOSE WHO SOUGHT THE CHILD'S
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:09.100
  • LIFE ARE DEAD.'
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:10.080
  • SO, JOSEPH GOT UP, TOOK THE
  • 00:18:10.080 --> 00:18:11.270
  • CHILD AND HIS MOTHER, AND CAME
  • 00:18:11.270 --> 00:18:12.230
  • INTO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:18:12.230 --> 00:18:14.120
  • BUT WHEN HE HEARD THAT
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:18.150
  • ARCHELAUS WAS REIGNING OVER
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:20.020
  • JUDEA IN PLACE OF HIS FATHER
  • 00:18:20.020 --> 00:18:21.010
  • HEROD, HE WAS AFRAID
  • 00:18:21.010 --> 00:18:22.000
  • TO GO THERE.
  • 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:22.280
  • THEN AFTER BEING WARNED BY GOD
  • 00:18:22.280 --> 00:18:24.230
  • IN A DREAM, HE LEFT FOR THE
  • 00:18:24.230 --> 00:18:26.110
  • REGION OF GALILEE, AND CAME
  • 00:18:26.110 --> 00:18:27.290
  • AND LIVED IN A CITY
  • 00:18:27.290 --> 00:18:28.190
  • CALLED NAZARETH.
  • 00:18:28.210 --> 00:18:31.210
  • THIS WAS TO FULFILL WHAT WAS
  • 00:18:31.210 --> 00:18:32.200
  • SPOKEN THROUGH THE PROPHETS:
  • 00:18:32.200 --> 00:18:34.210
  • 'HE SHALL BE CALLED
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:35.220
  • A NAZARENE.'"
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:37.020
  • OKAY, I HAVE ONE MORE.
  • 00:18:37.020 --> 00:18:38.240
  • AND THE LAST ONE IS IN
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:40.170
  • MATTHEW 4.
  • 00:18:40.170 --> 00:18:41.130
  • AND WE WON'T READ IT.
  • 00:18:41.130 --> 00:18:42.200
  • BUT IT SAYS THAT JESUS WITHDREW
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:44.040
  • AND HE WENT TO GALILEE.
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:45.240
  • AND THIS WAS BECAUSE -- IN
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:48.180
  • VERSE 14: "THIS WAS TO FULFILL
  • 00:18:48.180 --> 00:18:49.120
  • WHAT WAS SPOKEN THROUGH
  • 00:18:49.120 --> 00:18:50.020
  • THE PROPHET ISAIAH: 'FROM THE
  • 00:18:50.020 --> 00:18:51.080
  • LAND OF ZABULUN AND
  • 00:18:51.080 --> 00:18:54.040
  • THE LAND OF NEPHTHALIM,
  • 00:18:54.040 --> 00:18:56.120
  • BY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND
  • 00:18:56.120 --> 00:18:57.030
  • THE JORDAN, GALILEE OF
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:18:57.200
  • THE GENTILES--
  • 00:18:57.200 --> 00:18:58.090
  • "THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:18:59.110
  • DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT, AND
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:01.020
  • THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE
  • 00:19:01.020 --> 00:19:02.180
  • LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:04.080
  • THEM A LIGHT DAWNED.'"
  • 00:19:04.080 --> 00:19:06.000
  • OKAY, I HAVE THIS ONE
  • 00:19:06.000 --> 00:19:07.000
  • LAST THOUGHT.
  • 00:19:07.000 --> 00:19:09.210
  • SO, JESUS, BECAUSE OF DANGER IS
  • 00:19:09.210 --> 00:19:12.070
  • BEING MOVED FROM CITY TO CITY.
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:15.170
  • IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS RANDOMLY
  • 00:19:15.170 --> 00:19:18.060
  • HAVING TO GO FROM PLACE TO
  • 00:19:18.060 --> 00:19:20.010
  • PLACE TO ESCAPE HEROD.
  • 00:19:20.010 --> 00:19:22.250
  • BUT, MATTHEW SEES A TOTALLY
  • 00:19:24.110 --> 00:19:27.110
  • DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:19:27.110 --> 00:19:29.010
  • HE SEES THE-- THE-- THE--
  • 00:19:29.190 --> 00:19:32.190
  • HE SEES THE HUMAN SIDE OF JESUS
  • 00:19:32.190 --> 00:19:34.110
  • BEING MOVED FROM PLACE
  • 00:19:34.220 --> 00:19:37.220
  • TO PLACE.
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:39.020
  • BUT HE GETS UP HIGHER AND SEES
  • 00:19:39.020 --> 00:19:41.230
  • ACTUALLY THAT PROPHETS
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:43.190
  • PROPHESIED THAT HE'LL BE FROM
  • 00:19:43.190 --> 00:19:45.290
  • HERE, HE'LL BE FROM THERE,
  • 00:19:45.290 --> 00:19:47.120
  • HE'LL BE FROM THERE, HE'LL BE
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:48.130
  • AND, THEREFORE, HE NEEDED TO GO
  • 00:19:50.270 --> 00:19:51.270
  • FROM PLACE TO PLACE TO FULFILL
  • 00:19:51.270 --> 00:19:52.180
  • THE WORD OF THE LORD.
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:55.050
  • AND WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:56.190
  • WITH CHRISTMAS?
  • 00:19:56.190 --> 00:19:57.230
  • YOU MAY THINK THAT TRAGEDY HAS
  • 00:19:57.290 --> 00:20:00.290
  • REDIRECTED YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:01.150 --> 00:20:04.150
  • AND YET, THERE MAY BE A
  • 00:20:04.270 --> 00:20:07.270
  • PROPHETIC THING ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:20:07.270 --> 00:20:08.280
  • IN WHICH YOU'RE LIKE: "THE
  • 00:20:08.280 --> 00:20:11.160
  • DEVIL'S AFTER ME!"
  • 00:20:11.160 --> 00:20:12.200
  • IT'S LIKE: IS IT THE
  • 00:20:12.200 --> 00:20:13.120
  • DEVIL OR GOD?
  • 00:20:13.120 --> 00:20:14.260
  • AND THE ANSWER IS...YES!
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:19.290
  • THE LORD IS ALLOWING THE DEVIL
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:20.280
  • TO CHASE JOSEPH AND MARY INTO
  • 00:20:20.280 --> 00:20:23.240
  • JESUS' PROPHETIC DESTINY FROM
  • 00:20:23.240 --> 00:20:26.020
  • CITY TO CITY.
  • 00:20:26.020 --> 00:20:27.140
  • AND THE DEVIL GOES,
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:28.160
  • "I GOT HIM!"
  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:29.090
  • AND GOD GOES, "EXACTLY WHAT I
  • 00:20:29.090 --> 00:20:30.020
  • WANTED YOU TO DO."
  • 00:20:30.020 --> 00:20:31.060
  • IT'S A LITTLE BIT LIKE GOD
  • 00:20:31.060 --> 00:20:33.050
  • PROPHESYING TO THE ISRAELITES,
  • 00:20:33.050 --> 00:20:35.080
  • "YOU'RE GONNA LEAVE EGYPT,"
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:36.130
  • AND, ALL OF A SUDDEN, THEY GET
  • 00:20:36.130 --> 00:20:38.170
  • TO THE RED SEA AND THERE'S
  • 00:20:38.170 --> 00:20:39.060
  • NO CROSSING!
  • 00:20:39.060 --> 00:20:40.200
  • AND THEY'RE LIKE, "WHAT ARE
  • 00:20:40.200 --> 00:20:41.100
  • AND, IT'S LIKE: "WELL, WE HAVE
  • 00:20:43.130 --> 00:20:44.040
  • ABOUT FIVE OPTIONS, YOU KNOW."
  • 00:20:44.040 --> 00:20:44.250
  • AND THEN, THEY SEE THE
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:45.120
  • EGYPTIANS...WHO ARE GOING
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:46.010
  • TO KILL THEM.
  • 00:20:46.010 --> 00:20:48.030
  • NOW, HOW MANY KNOW THE OPTIONS
  • 00:20:48.030 --> 00:20:49.060
  • GOT NARROWED DOWN
  • 00:20:49.060 --> 00:20:50.080
  • QUITE...QUICKLY?
  • 00:20:50.180 --> 00:20:53.180
  • AND THEY WENT FROM HOWEVER MANY
  • 00:20:53.180 --> 00:20:54.100
  • OPTIONS THEY HAD TO ONE OPTION.
  • 00:20:54.120 --> 00:20:57.120
  • "LET'S TRY THE SEA!"
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:59.090
  • MOSES SAID THE SEA'S
  • 00:20:59.090 --> 00:21:02.010
  • GONNA SPLIT.
  • 00:21:02.010 --> 00:21:02.170
  • AND THE OTHER OPTION
  • 00:21:02.170 --> 00:21:03.230
  • IS TERRIFYING!
  • 00:21:04.040 --> 00:21:07.040
  • I DON'T KNOW IF THEY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:21:07.040 --> 00:21:07.260
  • EVER CROSSED THE RED SEA IF THE
  • 00:21:07.260 --> 00:21:10.030
  • EGYPTIANS WEREN'T CHASING THEM.
  • 00:21:10.030 --> 00:21:11.020
  • THE EGYPTIANS CHASED THE
  • 00:21:11.020 --> 00:21:12.070
  • ISRAELITES RIGHT INTO THEIR
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:14.220
  • PROPHETIC DESTINY.
  • 00:21:16.180 --> 00:21:19.180
  • WHO-- WHEN JESUS WENT INTO THE
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:20.230
  • WILDERNESS FOR 40 DAYS, IT SAYS
  • 00:21:20.230 --> 00:21:22.020
  • THAT THE DEVIL--
  • 00:21:22.020 --> 00:21:24.190
  • HE WENT INTO THE WILDERNESS,
  • 00:21:24.190 --> 00:21:26.060
  • LED BY THE SPIRIT -- CAPITAL
  • 00:21:26.060 --> 00:21:28.070
  • "S" -- TO BE WHAT?
  • 00:21:28.070 --> 00:21:30.090
  • TEMPTED BY THE...DEVIL.
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:32.100
  • DID THE DEVIL...CAUSE THAT
  • 00:21:33.080 --> 00:21:36.080
  • WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE OR DID
  • 00:21:36.080 --> 00:21:37.140
  • YES!
  • 00:21:39.290 --> 00:21:40.220
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:21:40.280 --> 00:21:43.280
  • IT'S LIKE: "THE DEVIL'S GOT A

  • PLAN FOR MY LIFE."
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:45.130
  • YES, BUT THE LORD USES EVERY

  • PLAN AGAINST HIM!
  • 00:21:47.250 --> 00:21:50.250
  • THE LORD DIDN'T TAKE JESUS
  • 00:21:50.250 --> 00:21:51.140
  • IN THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:21:51.140 --> 00:21:53.130
  • HE DIDN'T LEAD JESUS IN THE

  • WILDERNESS TO DESTROY JESUS;
  • 00:21:55.160 --> 00:21:56.250
  • HE BROUGHT HIM INTO THE

  • WILDERNESS TO BEAT THE DEVIL.
  • 00:21:59.000 --> 00:22:02.020
