  • He tells us, "My sheep hear my voice".
  • 00:00:02.180 --> 00:00:05.160
  • The ability to hear Him must still be learned and matured.
  • 00:00:05.190 --> 00:00:08.000
  • Join my pastor, Robert Morris, as he teaches us hearing God
  • 00:00:08.030 --> 00:00:11.160
  • is not something you do, it's someone you are.
  • 00:00:11.190 --> 00:00:14.200
  • 00:00:14.230 --> 00:00:29.120
  • PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS: All right, so I want you
  • 00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:30.260
  • to turn to John 10.
  • 00:00:30.290 --> 00:00:32.250
  • I want to begin to introduce this first message to you,
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:36.020
  • and I want you to think about what is the main difference
  • 00:00:36.050 --> 00:00:41.200
  • between a believer in Jesus Christ
  • 00:00:41.230 --> 00:00:44.230
  • and a non-believer.
  • 00:00:44.260 --> 00:00:46.150
  • What's the main difference?
  • 00:00:46.180 --> 00:00:48.160
  • And, let me give you the answer.
  • 00:00:48.190 --> 00:00:50.030
  • It is that a believer has a personal relationship
  • 00:00:50.060 --> 00:00:54.000
  • with Jesus Christ.
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:57.060
  • Is that right?
  • 00:00:57.090 --> 00:00:58.080
  • That would be, probably, the major difference.
  • 00:00:58.110 --> 00:01:00.060
  • An unbeliever does not have a relationship with Jesus.
  • 00:01:00.090 --> 00:01:02.190
  • A believer in Jesus has a personal relationship
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:04.260
  • with Jesus.
  • 00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:05.260
  • So, let me take that just a step further.
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:07.140
  • If you are praying about a new job, and an unbeliever
  • 00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:12.040
  • is praying, or thinking about... I should say it that way,
  • 00:01:12.070 --> 00:01:15.220
  • a new job, is there any difference in the way
  • 00:01:15.250 --> 00:01:19.150
  • these two people are going to approach this situation?
  • 00:01:19.180 --> 00:01:23.070
  • Of course there is, because the unbeliever gathers facts
  • 00:01:23.100 --> 00:01:26.250
  • and tries to make the best decision he can,
  • 00:01:26.280 --> 00:01:29.280
  • but the believer gathers facts and asks God what His will is,
  • 00:01:30.010 --> 00:01:36.200
  • and God can lead you.
  • 00:01:36.230 --> 00:01:38.170
  • And wouldn't you rather make decisions based on
  • 00:01:38.200 --> 00:01:41.230
  • God's knowledge than on yours?
  • 00:01:41.260 --> 00:01:46.090
  • Because God knows if the company interviewing you
  • 00:01:46.120 --> 00:01:49.060
  • is going to go out of business in a year.
  • 00:01:49.090 --> 00:01:52.080
  • But if you have a thought that God doesn't speak anymore,
  • 00:01:52.110 --> 00:01:57.150
  • I really don't mean this condescending,
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:02:00.110
  • I mean it the way I'm saying it -- I feel so sorry for you,
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:05.030
  • that you have a personal relationship with someone
  • 00:02:05.060 --> 00:02:08.000
  • who never speaks to you.
  • 00:02:08.030 --> 00:02:09.260
  • I don't know how personal that is.
  • 00:02:09.290 --> 00:02:13.010
  • Let me make this statement to start the series.
  • 00:02:13.040 --> 00:02:15.160
  • Hearing God is not something you do, it's someone you are.
  • 00:02:15.190 --> 00:02:22.220
  • And if you don't understand that, you may not understand
  • 00:02:22.250 --> 00:02:26.150
  • the concept of hearing God.
  • 00:02:26.180 --> 00:02:29.000
  • So, it's not something you do, it's someone you are.
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:32.150
  • So, here's the title of the first message, and granted,
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:35.260
  • it's a little different, but the title is, "I'm a Sheep".
  • 00:02:35.290 --> 00:02:39.150
  • Okay, John 10, Jesus is contrasting Himself
  • 00:02:39.180 --> 00:02:44.130
  • as the good shepherd with the thief, the robber,
  • 00:02:44.160 --> 00:02:48.220
  • who is Satan.
  • 00:02:48.250 --> 00:02:50.020
  • All right?
  • 00:02:50.050 --> 00:02:50.270
  • So, John 10, look at Verse 1.
  • 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:53.100
  • We're talking about we're sheep, and we can hear God.
  • 00:02:53.130 --> 00:02:56.260
  • "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter
  • 00:02:56.290 --> 00:02:59.190
  • the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way,
  • 00:02:59.220 --> 00:03:02.250
  • the same is a thief and a robber.
  • 00:03:02.280 --> 00:03:06.140
  • But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:11.060
  • To him the doorkeeper opens" ...now watch this carefully,
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:15.130
  • "and the sheep", watch, "hear His voice".
  • 00:03:15.160 --> 00:03:21.110
  • Can you just say those three words?
  • 00:03:21.140 --> 00:03:23.010
  • "Hear His voice."
  • 00:03:23.040 --> 00:03:25.090
  • It does not say, "Sense His impressions."
  • 00:03:25.120 --> 00:03:32.120
  • And I'm not saying that God doesn't give us impressions.
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:35.170
  • I just simply am, literally, blown away, and when I say that,
  • 00:03:35.200 --> 00:03:40.290
  • again I'm not saying it condescendingly,
  • 00:03:41.020 --> 00:03:42.190
  • because I used to be of the theological persuasion
  • 00:03:42.220 --> 00:03:45.040
  • that believed that God didn't speak anymore,
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:47.060
  • and I'm shocked that I could have ever believed that,
  • 00:03:47.090 --> 00:03:49.150
  • that He just has chosen not to speak anymore since He wrote us
  • 00:03:49.180 --> 00:03:55.060
  • a letter, and we have His Word, but now He doesn't communicate
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:04:00.280
  • personally to His children.
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:03.070
  • I'm just shocked that I could have ever thought that way.
  • 00:04:03.100 --> 00:04:05.200
  • "Hear His voice", that's the Bible.
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:09.100
  • His sheep hear His voice.
  • 00:04:09.130 --> 00:04:11.000
  • "And he calls", so the way you call is your voice,
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:17.050
  • "his own sheep by name and leads them out.
  • 00:04:17.080 --> 00:04:20.090
  • And when He brings out His own sheep, He goes before them
  • 00:04:20.120 --> 00:04:22.230
  • and the sheep follow Him, for they know", what?
  • 00:04:22.260 --> 00:04:26.060
  • "His voice."
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:29.040
  • And if you have any doubt that this is talking about Jesus,
  • 00:04:29.070 --> 00:04:31.270
  • Verse 11, He says, "I am the good shepherd".
  • 00:04:32.000 --> 00:04:35.160
  • So, Jesus said... we know it, but just in case
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:38.010
  • you had a doubt, "I am the good shepherd.
  • 00:04:38.040 --> 00:04:39.230
  • The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep."
  • 00:04:39.260 --> 00:04:41.080
  • Now look at Verse 16.
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:43.060
  • John 10:16, "And other sheep I have which are not
  • 00:04:43.090 --> 00:04:46.150
  • of this fold".
  • 00:04:46.180 --> 00:04:47.140
  • Now look at me just for a moment.
  • 00:04:47.170 --> 00:04:49.010
  • He is now speaking about the Gentiles.
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:51.060
  • He is talking to Jewish people, and He says,
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:54.000
  • and you need to know there are other sheep I have that are not
  • 00:04:54.030 --> 00:04:57.080
  • of this fold.
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:58.180
  • Other sheep.
  • 00:04:58.210 --> 00:04:59.220
  • There's not a theologian I've ever met in the world
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:01.200
  • that doesn't know or believe this is talking about Gentiles.
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:05.040
  • So, that's most of us.
  • 00:05:05.070 --> 00:05:06.100
  • You might be Jewish, but for the rest of us,
  • 00:05:06.130 --> 00:05:07.270
  • thank God that He had another fold, okay?
  • 00:05:08.000 --> 00:05:11.290
  • The Gentiles.
  • 00:05:12.020 --> 00:05:13.020
  • Now, watch this.
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:14.060
  • "Other sheep I have which are not of this fold,
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:15.290
  • them also I must bring."
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:18.090
  • Watch.
  • 00:05:18.120 --> 00:05:19.200
  • "And they will..." what?
  • 00:05:19.230 --> 00:05:22.140
  • "Hear my voice."
  • 00:05:22.170 --> 00:05:26.090
  • Okay, I can hear God.
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:28.160
  • That's what He's saying, specifically.
  • 00:05:28.190 --> 00:05:29.240
  • They will hear my voice, and there will be one flock
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:32.250
  • and one shepherd.
  • 00:05:32.280 --> 00:05:34.110
  • He's speaking of Jew and Gentile here, one flock.
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:37.010
  • And then, Verse 27, just to make it really, really, clear.
  • 00:05:37.040 --> 00:05:40.290
  • John 10:27, "My sheep", say those three words,
  • 00:05:41.020 --> 00:05:44.290
  • "hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me."
  • 00:05:45.020 --> 00:05:53.100
  • Okay, I'm going to ask you a very simple question.
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:55.130
  • Is Jesus the shepherd?
  • 00:05:55.160 --> 00:05:58.030
  • Okay, are you following Him?
  • 00:05:58.060 --> 00:06:00.140
  • So then, you're the sheep.
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:02.140
  • And what do sheep do?
  • 00:06:02.170 --> 00:06:04.210
  • They hear His voice.
  • 00:06:04.240 --> 00:06:08.140
  • This is in red!
  • 00:06:08.170 --> 00:06:12.250
  • This is Jesus!
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:14.190
  • I don't really care what Dr. Fuzzyface says.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:18.230
  • I care what this book says.
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:21.130
  • It's clear.
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:22.200
  • "My sheep hear my voice."
  • 00:06:22.230 --> 00:06:26.200
  • So, let me tell you three things about the ability to hear God.
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:30.240
  • All right, here's number one.
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:31.270
  • It's innate.
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:34.210
  • It's innate.
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:35.190
  • In other words, you're born with it.
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:37.170
  • It's inherent.
  • 00:06:37.200 --> 00:06:38.280
  • It's natural.
  • 00:06:39.010 --> 00:06:39.210
  • It's built in.
  • 00:06:39.240 --> 00:06:40.150
  • It's instinct.
  • 00:06:40.180 --> 00:06:41.100
  • It's hard-wired.
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:43.040
  • Our God is a speaking God.
  • 00:06:43.070 --> 00:06:45.020
  • The whole reason that you have the ability to hear and speak
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:48.240
  • is because you were created in the image of a hearing,
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:52.020
  • speaking God.
  • 00:06:52.050 --> 00:06:55.030
  • Why would He create you with the ability to communicate,
  • 00:06:55.060 --> 00:06:58.150
  • and then not communicate with you?
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:07:01.020
  • That would be a horrible thing to do to you,
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:05.210
  • to create you with the ability to communicate, and He has
  • 00:07:05.240 --> 00:07:09.260
  • the ability to communicate, but He just doesn't
  • 00:07:09.290 --> 00:07:12.180
  • communicate to you.
  • 00:07:12.210 --> 00:07:14.120
  • That'd be a horrible thing, and again, it's a horrendous
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:16.200
  • line of thought.
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:18.240
  • It's literally... let me give you the Greek word for it.
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.170
  • It's baloney.
  • 00:07:20.200 --> 00:07:23.190
  • "Bologna" is how it's pronounced in the Greek.
  • 00:07:23.220 --> 00:07:30.240
  • This is what separates us from the animals,
  • 00:07:30.270 --> 00:07:34.020
  • that God gave us the ability to communicate
  • 00:07:34.050 --> 00:07:36.240
  • our deepest feelings, not only to other humans, but to Him.
  • 00:07:36.270 --> 00:07:41.290
  • And, He communicates to us.
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:45.090
  • And I know some of you say, well, animals can communicate.
  • 00:07:45.120 --> 00:07:47.150
  • Yes, they can on some level.
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:49.290
  • I understand that.
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:51.180
  • But, they can't communicate like we can.
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:53.140
  • They can't.
  • 00:07:53.170 --> 00:07:54.220
  • You know, I was watching the Discovery Channel one time.
  • 00:07:54.250 --> 00:07:56.200
  • There was a guy sitting in a room, all day,
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:08:01.270
  • listening to whales.
  • 00:08:02.000 --> 00:08:05.000
  • He had these earphones on.
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:07.000
  • He was listening to recordings of whales.
  • 00:08:07.030 --> 00:08:11.040
  • Oooooh!
  • 00:08:11.070 --> 00:08:14.270
  • And then they said to this guy, "What's he saying?"
  • 00:08:15.000 --> 00:08:20.110
  • I'm telling you the truth!
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:21.030
  • I saw it.
  • 00:08:21.060 --> 00:08:22.040
  • So, here's what the guy said.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:23.070
  • He's lonely.
  • 00:08:23.100 --> 00:08:26.150
  • I thought, "No, you're lonely, pal.
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:30.080
  • You need to get out of this room and go talk to some people!"
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:39.060
  • Just do an experiment.
  • 00:08:39.090 --> 00:08:40.100
  • If you have a dog, go home and talk to your dog.
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:43.220
  • But, here's what I want you to say, and I want you to say
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:45.270
  • it like this.
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:47.160
  • You're so stupid.
  • 00:08:47.190 --> 00:08:49.050
  • Yes, you are!
  • 00:08:49.080 --> 00:08:50.060
  • You're the stupidest dog I ever saw, yes!
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:53.130
  • And just watch that dog just wag his tail, and just think
  • 00:08:53.160 --> 00:08:57.090
  • you paid him the biggest compliment.
  • 00:08:57.120 --> 00:08:59.060
  • And then, I'm just thinking about animals again.
  • 00:08:59.090 --> 00:09:04.230
  • Why do dogs bark at night?
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:08.210
  • Has anyone figured that out?
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:10.120
  • All night.
  • 00:09:10.150 --> 00:09:11.040
  • All night.
  • 00:09:11.070 --> 00:09:16.100
  • Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof,
  • 00:09:16.130 --> 00:09:20.200
  • woof, woof, woof, woof, woof.
  • 00:09:20.230 --> 00:09:27.070
  • Woof, woof!
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:30.280
  • And here's what we do.
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:31.270
  • We open the door.
  • 00:09:32.000 --> 00:09:32.170
  • "Shut up!"
  • 00:09:32.200 --> 00:09:35.070
  • What do you expect the dog to do?
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:36.260
  • "My bad!"
  • 00:09:36.290 --> 00:09:44.250
  • I've always tried to figure it out.
  • 00:09:44.280 --> 00:09:46.230
  • What are they saying?
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:48.030
  • You know, "I'm trapped in the backyard!
  • 00:09:48.060 --> 00:09:50.090
  • Help, help, help, help, help, help, help!"
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:54.120
  • And then the neighbor dog joins in.
  • 00:09:54.150 --> 00:09:56.030
  • "Help him!"
  • 00:09:56.060 --> 00:10:06.130
  • I'm sure they have a level of communication, but they
  • 00:10:06.160 --> 00:10:11.270
  • were not created... I'm not trying to put animals down.
  • 00:10:12.000 --> 00:10:14.060
  • I know we all love animals, but I'm just telling you,
  • 00:10:14.090 --> 00:10:16.050
  • they were not created in the image of God.
  • 00:10:16.080 --> 00:10:20.120
  • But you were, and you were created in the image
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:24.050
  • of a speaking God, and He created you with the ability
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:30.250
  • to hear Him, because, He says very clearly,
  • 00:10:30.280 --> 00:10:34.240
  • "I am the good shepherd and my sheep hear my voice".
  • 00:10:34.270 --> 00:10:41.240
  • It's innate.
  • 00:10:41.270 --> 00:10:42.280
  • You're born with the ability to hear God.
  • 00:10:43.010 --> 00:10:44.100
  • Here's the second thing.
  • 00:10:44.130 --> 00:10:46.040
  • It's learned.
  • 00:10:46.070 --> 00:10:49.100
  • Now you might say, well, that's kind of a contrasting thought.
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:51.240
  • You're saying I'm born with it, but you're saying I need
  • 00:10:51.270 --> 00:10:53.290
  • to learn how to hear God.
  • 00:10:54.020 --> 00:10:56.260
  • Absolutely, and I can give you the greatest example
  • 00:10:56.290 --> 00:10:58.150
  • in the world: children.
  • 00:10:58.180 --> 00:11:01.140
  • They're born with the ability to communicate,
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:05.020
  • but they need to be taught.
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:06.030
  • Is that right?
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:06.280
  • They need to be taught words.
  • 00:11:07.010 --> 00:11:08.120
  • They need to be taught sounds.
  • 00:11:08.150 --> 00:11:10.000
  • They need to be taught grammar and language.
  • 00:11:10.030 --> 00:11:12.080
  • They need to be taught what to say, and they need to be
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:15.050
  • taught when to say it.
  • 00:11:15.080 --> 00:11:17.160
  • Is that right?
  • 00:11:17.190 --> 00:11:18.160
  • They learn in their ability to hear God.
  • 00:11:18.190 --> 00:11:21.090
  • You know, if we said we're going to have a class on prayer,
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:24.150
  • you'd say I need that, and even the disciples said,
  • 00:11:24.180 --> 00:11:28.220
  • "Teach us to pray".
  • 00:11:28.250 --> 00:11:30.200
  • But, let me remind you that hearing God is the second half
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:35.290
  • of prayer, because if you can't hear God,
  • 00:11:36.020 --> 00:11:40.100
  • why would you pray?
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:42.170
  • Now, one reason is to make our requests and petitions
  • 00:11:42.200 --> 00:11:45.050
  • be known to God.
  • 00:11:45.080 --> 00:11:46.070
  • But, God never intended prayer to be a giving
  • 00:11:46.100 --> 00:11:49.160
  • of our to-do list to Him every morning.
  • 00:11:49.190 --> 00:11:52.080
  • He intended prayer to be communication between
  • 00:11:52.110 --> 00:11:57.200
  • a Father and His children.
  • 00:11:57.230 --> 00:12:01.090
  • And if you'll just take some time and start to listen,
  • 00:12:01.120 --> 00:12:05.210
  • you'll be amazed that He'll speak.
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:08.110
  • But, most of us do this.
  • 00:12:08.140 --> 00:12:10.030
  • Now, I'm just going to give you an analogy.
  • 00:12:10.060 --> 00:12:11.190
  • It's like someone is going to call you on the phone,
  • 00:12:11.220 --> 00:12:13.290
  • and talking for five minutes or ten minutes,
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:16.010
  • and then hanging up before you ever have a chance
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:18.160
  • to say anything.
  • 00:12:18.190 --> 00:12:22.130
  • That's the way many Christians pray.
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:26.030
  • God, I need this, need this, need this, need this, need this.
  • 00:12:26.060 --> 00:12:28.180
  • Gotta go.
  • 00:12:28.210 --> 00:12:31.040
  • And God's thinking, would you like to hear
  • 00:12:31.070 --> 00:12:32.210
  • what I have to say about that?
  • 00:12:32.240 --> 00:12:35.180
  • Now, listen to me.
  • 00:12:35.210 --> 00:12:37.100
  • Hearing God is not dependent upon knowledge, or depth,
  • 00:12:37.130 --> 00:12:45.190
  • or wisdom.
  • 00:12:45.220 --> 00:12:47.060
  • It's simply dependent upon being taught,
  • 00:12:47.090 --> 00:12:50.290
  • because we all need to learn.
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:52.020
  • Children need to learn.
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:54.020
  • So, it's innate, it's learned.
  • 00:12:54.050 --> 00:12:55.280
  • Here's the third thing I want to tell you about
  • 00:12:56.010 --> 00:12:57.290
  • the ability to hear God.
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:58.270
  • It's matured.
  • 00:12:59.000 --> 00:13:01.080
  • So, the ability to hear God is innate.
  • 00:13:01.110 --> 00:13:04.160
  • The ability to hear God is learned.
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:06.160
  • And, the ability to hear God is matured.
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:09.280
  • Okay, let's think about children again.
  • 00:13:10.010 --> 00:13:11.270
  • Do children need to mature in their communication skills?
  • 00:13:12.000 --> 00:13:18.030
  • Okay, let me give you some examples
  • 00:13:18.060 --> 00:13:20.020
  • just to help remind you.
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:23.050
  • Children, before they're taught, will say things that
  • 00:13:23.080 --> 00:13:27.100
  • you're not supposed to say.
  • 00:13:27.130 --> 00:13:31.080
  • Man, are you fat!
  • 00:13:31.110 --> 00:13:36.220
  • How old are you, Grandma?
  • 00:13:36.250 --> 00:13:39.290
  • We don't ask Grandma how old she is.
  • 00:13:40.020 --> 00:13:43.220
  • You just have to teach them.
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:45.080
  • We're talking about maturity.
  • 00:13:45.110 --> 00:13:46.130
  • Let me tell you a few philosophies of hearing God
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:49.290
  • that are immature, okay?
  • 00:13:50.020 --> 00:13:52.000
  • One is a message a minute.
  • 00:13:52.030 --> 00:13:55.010
  • Now, I'm using Dallas Willard's phrase here.
  • 00:13:55.040 --> 00:13:57.260
  • Dallas Willard was a great theologian, went to be
  • 00:13:57.290 --> 00:14:00.060
  • with the Lord in 2013, wrote a book called, "Hearing God",
  • 00:14:00.090 --> 00:14:03.160
  • and it's a great book.
  • 00:14:03.190 --> 00:14:05.140
  • But, he talked about this, a message a minute.
  • 00:14:05.170 --> 00:14:08.030
  • These are the people that tell you, you know,
  • 00:14:08.060 --> 00:14:11.160
  • they hear God, like 300 times a day, you know.
  • 00:14:11.190 --> 00:14:14.250
  • You'll be in the restaurant.
  • 00:14:14.280 --> 00:14:16.030
  • They'll say, God just told me not to put salt on my food.
  • 00:14:16.060 --> 00:14:21.130
  • And you feel like saying, you could have read the article
  • 00:14:21.160 --> 00:14:24.040
  • in Reader's Digest last month and you know, too.
  • 00:14:24.070 --> 00:14:27.130
  • Okay.
  • 00:14:27.160 --> 00:14:29.080
  • Okay, and let me ask you this.
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:30.140
  • Do you want God to have to tell you everything to do?
  • 00:14:30.170 --> 00:14:36.060
  • Now, does God want to communicate with us
  • 00:14:36.090 --> 00:14:38.080
  • on a regular basis?
  • 00:14:38.110 --> 00:14:39.180
  • Yes, but for fellowship, not for instruction alone.
  • 00:14:39.210 --> 00:14:44.170
  • I mean, let me say it this way.
  • 00:14:44.200 --> 00:14:45.260
  • What parent here wants to have to tell your children
  • 00:14:45.290 --> 00:14:50.120
  • everything to do, even when they're in their 40s?
  • 00:14:50.150 --> 00:14:56.100
  • Wouldn't you like them to grow up and learn how to make
  • 00:14:56.130 --> 00:15:00.260
  • wise decisions?
  • 00:15:00.290 --> 00:15:02.260
  • Certainly.
  • 00:15:02.290 --> 00:15:04.050
  • Okay, I'm simply saying that God does speak, God can speak,
  • 00:15:04.080 --> 00:15:07.160
  • all day long to you, but the person that gets
  • 00:15:07.190 --> 00:15:10.110
  • a Word from God every minute, that's probably not
  • 00:15:10.140 --> 00:15:14.180
  • the best philosophy to have, okay?
  • 00:15:14.210 --> 00:15:17.060
  • So, one's a message a minute.
  • 00:15:17.090 --> 00:15:18.220
  • Here's the second philosophy that I believe needs
  • 00:15:18.250 --> 00:15:23.100
  • to be matured, is the point and hope philosophy.
  • 00:15:23.130 --> 00:15:26.260
  • These are the people that, I'll open my Bible,
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:30.050
  • close my eyes, point it, and I hope I hear God, all right?
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:36.270
  • I hope I'm not in the begats.
  • 00:15:37.000 --> 00:15:38.140
  • That's what I hope.
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:39.260
  • Okay.
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:41.010
  • Now, I'm not saying that you can't open your Bible
  • 00:15:41.040 --> 00:15:43.030
  • and it falls to a place that God speaks to you.
  • 00:15:43.060 --> 00:15:45.160
  • Obviously He can, and He can easily do that out of, you know,
  • 00:15:45.190 --> 00:15:49.120
  • 1.187 chapters, 31.103 verses.
  • 00:15:49.150 --> 00:15:53.090
  • Okay, God can do that.
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:54.160
  • That's not hard for God.
  • 00:15:54.190 --> 00:15:56.060
  • But I'm just saying that I wouldn't do that
  • 00:15:56.090 --> 00:15:58.090
  • on every decision, okay?
  • 00:15:58.120 --> 00:16:00.140
  • I actually have a friend of mine who was...this is true,
  • 00:16:00.170 --> 00:16:03.150
  • he's a member of this church...in business,
  • 00:16:03.180 --> 00:16:05.110
  • and his business was struggling.
  • 00:16:05.140 --> 00:16:08.070
  • Okay, so you've got to catch that, because it might take you
  • 00:16:08.100 --> 00:16:11.010
  • a moment to catch what happened to him.
  • 00:16:11.040 --> 00:16:12.240
  • His business was struggling.
  • 00:16:12.270 --> 00:16:14.120
  • He'd heard someone say that, so he closed his eyes,
  • 00:16:14.150 --> 00:16:17.150
  • opened his Bible, put his finger down,
  • 00:16:17.180 --> 00:16:19.000
  • and this is what he read.
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:20.090
  • Chapter 13.
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:27.290
  • Now, that's not the Word you want from God
  • 00:16:28.020 --> 00:16:31.170
  • when asking God about the future of your business, okay?
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:35.090
  • By the way, one of the things that Dallas Willard said
  • 00:16:35.120 --> 00:16:38.010
  • in his book was that he heard this minister one time
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:41.200
  • say that God had shown him how everyone can have a life verse,
  • 00:16:41.230 --> 00:16:46.200
  • and it's my taking the year you were born
  • 00:16:46.230 --> 00:16:49.070
  • and using that as the chapter and the verse.
  • 00:16:49.100 --> 00:16:53.050
  • Okay, the only problem with that is most of us are born
  • 00:16:53.080 --> 00:16:59.170
  • in 19-something, and the 19th chapter of Joshua
  • 00:16:59.200 --> 00:17:02.120
  • has the most verses in it, and it has 51.
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:04.150
  • 1951, Joshua.
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:06.030
  • So, if you were born after 1951, no life verse for you.
  • 00:17:06.060 --> 00:17:14.120
  • And, but Dallas Willard heard this guy say it,
  • 00:17:14.150 --> 00:17:16.260
  • so he thought, well, you know, I was born in 1935,
  • 00:17:16.290 --> 00:17:19.190
  • so I'll just see if God has a life verse.
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:21.180
  • So, he went to the first book of the Bible,
  • 00:17:21.210 --> 00:17:22.250
  • Genesis 19:35.
  • 00:17:22.280 --> 00:17:24.180
  • This is what it says.
  • 00:17:24.210 --> 00:17:25.190
  • "So they got drunk and slept with him."
  • 00:17:25.220 --> 00:17:34.080
  • That was his life verse.
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.180
  • Okay, so.
  • 00:17:35.210 --> 00:17:37.090
  • Okay, so I don't believe in that philosophy.
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:38.290
  • I think you ought to mature from the point
  • 00:17:39.020 --> 00:17:40.190
  • and hope philosophy.
  • 00:17:40.220 --> 00:17:41.240
  • Here's the last one, the que sera sera philosophy.
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:45.230
  • Que sera sera, they really don't know whether
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:47.190
  • the guy took it from Spanish or Italian.
  • 00:17:47.220 --> 00:17:49.130
  • It's close to each language, but doesn't really work
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:52.190
  • in either language, but the American who wrote it
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:55.090
  • thought it did.
  • 00:17:55.120 --> 00:17:56.120
  • So, but what it means is whatever will be will be.
  • 00:17:56.150 --> 00:17:59.040
  • You know, Doris Day sang it.
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:01.040
  • How many of you remember Doris Day singing?
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:02.290
  • Okay, we're going to have to get some younger people
  • 00:18:03.020 --> 00:18:05.170
  • in the church!
  • 00:18:05.200 --> 00:18:06.170
  • Okay.
  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:07.140
  • So, I do, too.
  • 00:18:07.170 --> 00:18:10.080
  • I remember, okay?
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:11.170
  • But, it's whatever will be will be.
  • 00:18:11.200 --> 00:18:12.280
  • Okay, that's not a good philosophy about hearing God.
  • 00:18:13.010 --> 00:18:15.100
  • What it basically means is whatever I choose,
  • 00:18:15.130 --> 00:18:18.130
  • that's just God's will.
  • 00:18:18.160 --> 00:18:21.140
  • But, it's not God's will.
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:22.200
  • Your choice is not always God's desire for your life.
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:25.190
  • So, we need to mature to the place where we can hear
  • 00:18:25.220 --> 00:18:29.010
  • God's voice and make the right decision.
  • 00:18:29.040 --> 00:18:32.100
  • So, I want to give you an example of what
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:34.120
  • just happened just a couple of months ago,
  • 00:18:34.150 --> 00:18:36.140
  • and I haven't told you this.
  • 00:18:36.170 --> 00:18:40.070
  • I've been waiting.
  • 00:18:40.100 --> 00:18:41.190
  • I just thought about it with this series, and I thought,
  • 00:18:41.220 --> 00:18:42.290
  • wow, what a great example of God speaking,
  • 00:18:43.020 --> 00:18:45.120
  • and why God speaks.
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:47.240
  • So, let me show you.
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:50.030
  • This is the last Christmas card that we sent,
  • 00:18:50.060 --> 00:18:52.260
  • a picture of my family.
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:54.170
  • And so, you can see there on your right is my oldest son,
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:18:58.070
  • Josh, his wife, Hannah, Grady, and Willow,
  • 00:18:58.100 --> 00:19:01.150
  • Debbie and I in the middle there, and then on your left,
  • 00:19:01.180 --> 00:19:03.100
  • Ethan, my son-in-law, and Elaine,
  • 00:19:03.130 --> 00:19:08.100
  • and their two daughters.
  • 00:19:08.130 --> 00:19:10.260
  • And you can kind of tell Ethan is my son-in-law.
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:19.110
  • Well, I mean it's obvious.
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:20.100
  • He's taller than the rest of the family.
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:23.060
  • And, okay.
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:24.160
  • So, and then James and Bridget, my son and daughter-in-law,
  • 00:19:24.190 --> 00:19:27.270
  • and their two boys.
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:29.050
  • Okay, so by the way, Ethan and Elaine, they have two girls.
  • 00:19:29.080 --> 00:19:32.040
  • They're pregnant with their third, and it's a boy.
  • 00:19:32.070 --> 00:19:35.090
  • So, they're pregnant.
  • 00:19:35.120 --> 00:19:38.070
  • And, but my son, James, on the left there,
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:41.160
  • seated on the bench, and his wife, and his wife sings
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:44.090
  • on the worship team at Southlake some, Bridget.
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:46.130
  • They have two boys, but they've also had
  • 00:19:46.160 --> 00:19:48.250
  • two miscarriages, and they've had a difficult time.
  • 00:19:48.280 --> 00:19:52.030
  • So, they've been praying whether to have another child
  • 00:19:52.060 --> 00:19:53.170
  • or not, because she's had a difficult time during pregnancy.
  • 00:19:53.200 --> 00:19:57.060
  • And so, we had our fast, our 21-day fast, you remember,
  • 00:19:57.090 --> 00:20:00.220
  • January 10th through the 31st, and she was praying that
  • 00:20:00.250 --> 00:20:04.200
  • if they were supposed to have another child,
  • 00:20:04.230 --> 00:20:06.240
  • that someone close to them would give them a Word
  • 00:20:06.270 --> 00:20:10.190
  • during the 21-day fast.
  • 00:20:10.220 --> 00:20:12.280
  • And on January 31st, I was standing on the front row,
  • 00:20:13.010 --> 00:20:16.010
  • about to preach.
  • 00:20:16.040 --> 00:20:17.180
  • It was during worship.
  • 00:20:17.210 --> 00:20:18.180
  • I was just worshipping God.
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:19.200
  • I looked up.
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:20.170
  • Bridget was standing, like right here,
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:22.140
  • almost in front of me, leading worship,
  • 00:20:22.170 --> 00:20:24.080
  • and the Lord said to me, Bridget's pregnant,
  • 00:20:24.110 --> 00:20:27.290
  • on the last day of the 21-day fast, and she'd been praying.
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:30.100
  • So, that night we were having a family meal.
  • 00:20:30.130 --> 00:20:32.230
  • It just happened.
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:33.250
  • And I said, I have an announcement to make!
  • 00:20:33.280 --> 00:20:42.190
  • Well, I did!
  • 00:20:42.220 --> 00:20:44.060
  • And so, they were like, oh, okay, what's your announcement?
  • 00:20:44.090 --> 00:20:47.220
  • And I said, Bridget's pregnant.
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:51.030
  • And everyone kind of laughed, you know, and then
  • 00:20:51.060 --> 00:20:52.250
  • James and Bridget, they looked at me like,
  • 00:20:52.280 --> 00:20:55.090
  • are you serious?
  • 00:20:55.120 --> 00:20:58.090
  • I said, yes, I'm serious.
  • 00:20:58.120 --> 00:20:59.070
  • Bridget's pregnant.
  • 00:20:59.100 --> 00:21:00.070
  • I could see the look on Bridget's face
  • 00:21:00.100 --> 00:21:02.090
  • as she's processing, because she'd prayed this
  • 00:21:02.120 --> 00:21:05.220
  • and she had not told James that she had prayed this.
  • 00:21:05.250 --> 00:21:09.030
  • She just prayed someone close to them would give them a Word.
  • 00:21:09.060 --> 00:21:11.070
  • So, she's processing.
  • 00:21:11.100 --> 00:21:12.280
  • And so, then James said, well, she's not pregnant.
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:15.270
  • I can say that.
  • 00:21:16.000 --> 00:21:16.230
  • She's not pregnant.
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:17.180
  • It's impossible.
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:18.120
  • She's not pregnant.
  • 00:21:18.150 --> 00:21:19.150
  • And I said, well, you can say whatever you want.
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:21.050
  • I'm telling you, the Lord said she's pregnant.
  • 00:21:21.080 --> 00:21:25.280
  • So, because I was so strong, and they kept coming back to me,
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:28.150
  • even before they left.
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:29.200
  • They came up and said, now, are you serious about?
  • 00:21:29.230 --> 00:21:32.080
  • I said, I'm serious, God said it.
  • 00:21:32.110 --> 00:21:34.070
  • So, they went to the doctor, and the doctor said, well,
  • 00:21:34.100 --> 00:21:36.270
  • you're not pregnant.
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:38.060
  • As a matter of fact, your progesterone levels
  • 00:21:38.090 --> 00:21:40.010
  • are too low for you to even get pregnant.
  • 00:21:40.040 --> 00:21:42.090
  • It would be impossible for you to get pregnant right now.
  • 00:21:42.120 --> 00:21:44.130
  • And that's why she miscarried twice,
  • 00:21:44.160 --> 00:21:46.090
  • is because her progesterone, a hormone that your body
  • 00:21:46.120 --> 00:21:49.020
  • should produce, was not being produced at the level
  • 00:21:49.050 --> 00:21:51.240
  • it should be, and so that's why she miscarried twice.
  • 00:21:51.270 --> 00:21:54.050
  • And so, with the pregnancy with her other son there,
  • 00:21:54.080 --> 00:21:57.110
  • she took it so that, you know, it would help her
  • 00:21:57.140 --> 00:22:00.180
  • not to miscarry.
  • 00:22:00.210 --> 00:22:02.000
  • So, he said, well, it's impossible actually.
  • 00:22:02.030 --> 00:22:03.270
  • You couldn't get pregnant.
  • 00:22:04.000 --> 00:22:05.040
  • And so, but if you're even thinking about it,
  • 00:22:05.070 --> 00:22:08.090
  • you should start taking progesterone.
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:10.220
  • And so they said because I had that Word,
  • 00:22:10.250 --> 00:22:12.260
  • and I was so strong about it, they said we feel like
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:15.090
  • we ought to just start taking it then.
  • 00:22:15.120 --> 00:22:16.280
  • So, she started taking the medicine.
  • 00:22:17.010 --> 00:22:18.070
  • Well, she went back a few weeks later to check her level,
  • 00:22:18.100 --> 00:22:20.030
  • and the doctor checked her level, and then he said,
  • 00:22:20.060 --> 00:22:22.210
  • um, you're pregnant.
  • 00:22:22.240 --> 00:22:27.290
  • And they said, we thought you said our level was too low
  • 00:22:28.020 --> 00:22:30.210
  • to get pregnant.
  • 00:22:30.240 --> 00:22:31.240
  • He said, well, I don't know how it happened,
  • 00:22:31.270 --> 00:22:32.270
  • but you're pregnant.
  • 00:22:33.000 --> 00:22:34.040
  • And so, they said, well, you know, you count so many days
  • 00:22:34.070 --> 00:22:37.210
  • and all, so how long am I pregnant?
  • 00:22:37.240 --> 00:22:40.030
  • And he said, four weeks and six days.
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:42.230
  • And they went back, and January 31st,
  • 00:22:42.260 --> 00:22:45.070
  • when I gave them the Word, was four weeks and five days.
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:49.000
  • She'd been pregnant one day.
  • 00:22:49.030 --> 00:22:53.080
  • Now, I'm not saying that so that we get excited about
  • 00:22:53.110 --> 00:22:58.220
  • an accurate prophetic Word.
  • 00:22:58.250 --> 00:23:01.160
  • I'm saying that because I believe God gave the Word
  • 00:23:01.190 --> 00:23:05.010
  • to save the baby's life, so that she would start taking
  • 00:23:05.040 --> 00:23:09.250
  • the medicine that she needed to be able to carry the baby.
  • 00:23:09.280 --> 00:23:13.040
  • Do you see what I'm saying?
  • 00:23:13.070 --> 00:23:14.100
  • Here's the bottom line.
  • 00:23:14.130 --> 00:23:16.190
  • I'm a sheep.
  • 00:23:16.220 --> 00:23:19.010
  • By the way, it didn't say my shepherds hear my voice.
  • 00:23:19.040 --> 00:23:22.190
  • I mean, we hope they do.
  • 00:23:22.220 --> 00:23:25.070
  • But it says, my sheep.
  • 00:23:25.100 --> 00:23:27.070
  • God wants to speak to you.
  • 00:23:27.100 --> 00:23:32.020
  • PASTOR ROBERT: One of the greatest Scriptures
  • 00:23:32.230 --> 00:23:34.090
  • in all of the Bible: "My sheep hear my voice".
  • 00:23:34.120 --> 00:23:38.180
  • And because we're sheep, it's innate,
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:41.150
  • but it's also learned.
  • 00:23:41.180 --> 00:23:43.170
  • I want to encourage you to do something,
  • 00:23:43.200 --> 00:23:45.250
  • and that is to order the book, and the CDs, the DVDs,
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:50.200
  • however you want to do it.
  • 00:23:50.230 --> 00:23:51.230
  • The reason is I want you to be able to hear God.
  • 00:23:51.260 --> 00:23:55.170
  • I want you to learn how to hear God's voice.
  • 00:23:55.200 --> 00:23:58.200
  • Jesus loves you.
  • 00:23:58.230 --> 00:24:00.180
  • He is our great shepherd.
  • 00:24:00.210 --> 00:24:02.170
  • We are His sheep, and His sheep hear His voice.
  • 00:24:02.200 --> 00:24:06.060
  • Hey, tune in next week because we're going to continue
  • 00:24:06.090 --> 00:24:08.200
  • this series, "Frequency".
  • 00:24:08.230 --> 00:24:10.180
  • Tune in and hear God.
  • 00:24:10.210 --> 00:24:13.240
  • ANNOUNCER: Thank you for watching today's program

  • as Pastor Robert shares a message
  • 00:24:17.170 --> 00:24:19.030
  • from his series, "Frequency".
  • 00:24:19.060 --> 00:24:21.250
  • Have you ever found yourself asking, "How can I hear God?"
  • 00:24:21.280 --> 00:24:25.150
  • "Does God still speak?"
  • 00:24:25.180 --> 00:24:26.270
  • Or, "Is He really speaking to me?"
  • 00:24:27.000 --> 00:24:29.100
  • The good news is, yes, God is speaking.
  • 00:24:29.130 --> 00:24:32.060
  • And like a radio host broadcasting His voice
  • 00:24:32.090 --> 00:24:34.070
  • into the airwaves, God speaks to us all the time.
  • 00:24:34.100 --> 00:24:38.010
  • The question is, are you tuned it to the right frequency?
  • 00:24:38.040 --> 00:24:41.180
