We must continue to seek healing, for it is challenging to live without it. We all need a touch from God, and once we are healed, we must help others. Remember that God sees you, and He said, “Live!”

  • It is no longer natural for thebaby to be dependent on what the

  • that afterbirth is not pretty.
  • 00:02:55.325 --> 00:02:58.061
  • It's necessary, and in the rightplace at the right time it's
  • 00:02:58.094 --> 00:03:01.598
  • wonderful, but if it stays toolong it can be infectious and
  • 00:03:01.631 --> 00:03:08.037
  • disastrous, and stink.
  • 00:03:08.071 --> 00:03:13.743
  • When you allow what you camefrom to still cling to you, the

  • baptism, to wash away where youcame from?
  • 00:03:30.059 --> 00:03:36.499

  • 00:03:36.532 --> 00:03:41.437
  • you rise walking in the newnessof life," so that means that
  • 00:03:41.471 --> 00:03:45.341

  • 00:03:45.375 --> 00:03:49.746

  • 00:03:49.779 --> 00:03:54.017

  • a church member but, "No onewashed you?"
  • 00:04:00.923 --> 00:04:09.032

  • 00:04:09.065 --> 00:04:13.703
  • so successful, this mother hasdone what other women prayed to
  • 00:04:13.736 --> 00:04:19.275

  • if you get married you can't beselfish, this is why the
  • 00:04:49.772 --> 00:04:56.879

  • He says the reason I preach toyou is to wash you, that little
  • 00:06:12.955 --> 00:06:18.628
  • by little, every time you hear asermon it ought to take
  • 00:06:18.661 --> 00:06:21.931
  • something off, it ought to peelsomething off, it ought to clean
  • 00:06:21.964 --> 00:06:25.301
  • something up, it ought to makeyou see yourself, it ought to
  • 00:06:25.334 --> 00:06:28.704
  • make you govern your tongue, itought to make you feel convicted
  • 00:06:28.738 --> 00:06:32.141
  • in some way.
  • 00:06:32.175 --> 00:06:33.643
  • Jesus said my way of bathing youis to preach truth to you.
  • 00:06:33.676 --> 00:06:40.950
  • You cannot hide that you didn'tbathe, you know how you have a
  • 00:06:40.983 --> 00:06:45.555
  • five year old and you say, "Didyou brush your teeth?"
  • 00:06:45.588 --> 00:06:48.057
  • "Yes sir," and the breath ishitting you all in their head,
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:52.528
  • it's hit you like atomic neutronbombs, blowing up in your
  • 00:06:52.562 --> 00:06:56.699
  • nostrils, and you'd say, "Getback in there and
  • 00:06:56.732 --> 00:06:58.768
  • brush those--"
  • 00:06:58.801 --> 00:07:02.672
  • People can tell,
  • 00:07:02.705 --> 00:07:10.680
  • people can tell when you'venot been washed but
  • 00:07:11.347 --> 00:07:16.919
  • what's weird about this text,this baby is delivered,
  • 00:07:16.953 --> 00:07:25.428
  • but damaged.
  • 00:07:25.461 --> 00:07:29.999
  • I wonder how many people in thisroom or watching online,
  • 00:07:30.032 --> 00:07:33.269
  • streaming, watching me rightnow, I wonder how many of you
  • 00:07:33.302 --> 00:07:36.138
  • who are looking at me on yourTV, I'm wondering how many of
  • 00:07:36.172 --> 00:07:38.875
  • you that are watching on youriPad or on your cell phone, I'm
  • 00:07:38.908 --> 00:07:42.712

  • 00:07:42.745 --> 00:07:48.117
  • Can I go deeper?
  • 00:07:55.758 --> 00:07:58.861
  • Number three is the big one,number three is the big one.
  • 00:07:58.895 --> 00:08:02.665
  • The third indictment he bringsup against the scene before us
  • 00:08:02.698 --> 00:08:06.469
  • is, "No one salted you?"
  • 00:08:06.502 --> 00:08:09.272
  • And that's a funny thing becausetoday you would not salt a baby,
  • 00:08:09.305 --> 00:08:14.944
  • but in the Bible days you wouldsalt a baby to heal the
  • 00:08:14.977 --> 00:08:20.550
  • abrasions that were on the baby.
  • 00:08:20.583 --> 00:08:25.354
  • Now the baby has been deliveredbut God is saying I don't
  • 00:08:25.388 --> 00:08:28.491
  • question that you've beendelivered, but are you healed?
  • 00:08:28.524 --> 00:08:36.399
  • I don't question that you'vebeen born again, but are
  • 00:08:36.432 --> 00:08:40.469
  • you healed?
  • 00:08:40.503 --> 00:08:42.071
  • Oh, in the church I grew up in,they were adamant, and
  • 00:08:42.104 --> 00:08:44.707
  • biblically and rightfully so,that you do not marry
  • 00:08:44.740 --> 00:08:47.577
  • unbelievers; they were adamantabout it, it was totally taboo.
  • 00:08:47.610 --> 00:08:51.914
  • It was just unthinkable that youwould marry an unbeliever, the
  • 00:08:51.948 --> 00:08:55.618
  • whole church would just sit youdown, they would sit you down,
  • 00:08:55.651 --> 00:08:59.121
  • you couldn't sing, you couldn'tusher, the deacons
  • 00:08:59.155 --> 00:09:02.091
  • couldn't deac.
  • 00:09:02.124 --> 00:09:03.326
  • If you've married somebody--youknow, whatever--if you married
  • 00:09:03.359 --> 00:09:12.001
  • an unbeliever, but what theydidn't tell us is that some
  • 00:09:12.034 --> 00:09:16.672
  • unbelievers are in church, thatjust because you go to church
  • 00:09:16.706 --> 00:09:25.281
  • and just because you speak intongues and just because you can
  • 00:09:25.314 --> 00:09:28.351
  • quote Scriptures doesn't meanthat you are healed.
  • 00:09:28.384 --> 00:09:35.157
  • I don't want to pastor a gang, Iwanna pastor a church, and in
  • 00:09:35.191 --> 00:09:44.767
  • order to pastor a church, yougotta be healed, you got to
  • 00:09:44.800 --> 00:09:50.840
  • be salted.
  • 00:09:50.873 --> 00:09:52.942
  • Now the salt alone doesn't dothe healing, it promotes the
  • 00:09:52.975 --> 00:09:57.880
  • healing process, you understand?
  • 00:09:57.913 --> 00:10:00.950
  • So you can't salt the baby andall the abrasions immediately
  • 00:10:00.983 --> 00:10:04.153
  • disappear, but it sets in motiona healing process.
  • 00:10:04.186 --> 00:10:10.226
  • Be honest with me, how many ofyou feel like that a healing
  • 00:10:10.259 --> 00:10:13.863
  • process has been set in motionin your life?
  • 00:10:13.896 --> 00:10:18.868
  • That's salt, that's salt.
  • 00:10:18.901 --> 00:10:22.271
  • Is it possible that those of usthat are in processes of healing
  • 00:10:22.304 --> 00:10:26.442
  • do not extend the same grace toother people to be in processes
  • 00:10:26.475 --> 00:10:30.613
  • of healing?
  • 00:10:30.646 --> 00:10:34.684
  • I want you to make it yourobjectives this week to be salt
  • 00:10:34.717 --> 00:10:37.420

  • Number six, they threw--honey,
  • 00:12:43.412 --> 00:12:50.920
  • they threw the babyinto an open field.
  • 00:12:50.953 --> 00:13:00.296
  • You left me uncovered and threwme out there to the wolves, and
  • 00:13:00.329 --> 00:13:05.701
  • now you're talking about me'cause they bit me?
  • 00:13:05.734 --> 00:13:12.641
  • They bit me but you threw me.
  • 00:13:12.675 --> 00:13:16.812
  • Anytime you leave me uncovered,you throw me out into the
  • 00:13:16.846 --> 00:13:22.318
  • open field.
  • 00:13:22.351 --> 00:13:27.489
  • I want to talk to some openfield people who got thrown out
  • 00:13:27.523 --> 00:13:32.728
  • into stuff, found yourself withwolves,
  • 00:13:32.761 --> 00:13:40.803
  • snakes, lions and tigers.
  • 00:13:40.836 --> 00:13:50.112
  • When you say, "You threw meaway," no, you didn't throw me
  • 00:13:53.449 --> 00:13:55.885
  • away, you threw me to; youraway sent me
  • 00:13:55.918 --> 00:14:03.993
  • to an open field.
  • 00:14:04.026 --> 00:14:13.469
  • Good God of mine, no wonderwe're stressed out, no man
  • 00:14:14.403 --> 00:14:24.179
  • swallowed you, no man saltedyou, no man covered you, no man
  • 00:14:24.213 --> 00:14:28.684
  • cut you, and when they finallydid make contact with you, it
  • 00:14:28.717 --> 00:14:34.056
  • was to throw you to an openfield.
  • 00:14:34.089 --> 00:14:40.796
  • Have you ever been thrown?
  • 00:14:40.829 --> 00:14:44.733
  • Have you ever been divorced?
  • 00:14:44.767 --> 00:14:46.001
  • Have you ever been rejected?
  • 00:14:46.035 --> 00:14:47.202
  • Have you ever been thrown?
  • 00:14:47.236 --> 00:14:48.470
  • Have you ever been thrown into astrange, foreign, dangerous,
  • 00:14:48.504 --> 00:14:52.574
  • vulnerable situation?
  • 00:14:52.608 --> 00:14:57.046
  • It's one of the reasons we're inchurch this morning, one of the
  • 00:14:57.079 --> 00:15:01.450
  • reasons we're in church thismorning is to get some cover and
  • 00:15:01.483 --> 00:15:03.986
  • get some guidance and get somedirection and get some help and
  • 00:15:04.019 --> 00:15:07.456
  • get some healing, because it'shard on a baby in an open field.
  • 00:15:07.489 --> 00:15:16.498
  • It's hard, you don't abuse mebut you neglect me, and that
  • 00:15:23.939 --> 00:15:31.246
  • neglect is abuse.
  • 00:15:31.280 --> 00:15:36.251
  • And then the Bible goes realtherapeutic and shows you what
  • 00:15:36.285 --> 00:15:42.458
  • all of this does, and I'm gonnashow you what it does and I'll
  • 00:15:42.491 --> 00:15:45.828
  • be done.
  • 00:15:45.861 --> 00:15:47.463
  • It says when they got throughnot salting, not cutting, not
  • 00:15:47.496 --> 00:15:52.701
  • washing, not covering, notpitying you, it led to
  • 00:15:52.735 --> 00:15:58.507
  • self-loathing, "To the loathingof thy person."
  • 00:15:58.540 --> 00:16:07.649
  • Good God, woo, God, that's soheavy, "To the loathing of
  • 00:16:09.084 --> 00:16:15.724
  • thy person."
  • 00:16:15.758 --> 00:16:18.727
  • How in the world can I convinceyou to love me,
  • 00:16:18.761 --> 00:16:26.702
  • when inside, I loathe meand I wish
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:37.112
  • I were not me?
  • 00:16:37.146 --> 00:16:40.816
  • That's what led me to theloathing of thy person, I wish I
  • 00:16:40.849 --> 00:16:45.487
  • wasn't me.
  • 00:16:45.521 --> 00:16:48.390
  • If I open up this altar rightnow to people who loathe
  • 00:16:48.424 --> 00:16:52.928
  • themselves and loathe theirmistakes and loathe their
  • 00:16:52.961 --> 00:16:57.599
  • memories and loathe whathappened to them and loathe
  • 00:16:57.633 --> 00:17:01.136
  • their abortions and loathe whatthey did and loathe who hurt
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:05.607
  • them and loathe who they hurt,that's what this text means,
  • 00:17:05.641 --> 00:17:15.250
  • it's my job to explain the text.
  • 00:17:16.952 --> 00:17:23.826
  • "To the loathing of thy person,"is a really deep thing when you
  • 00:17:23.859 --> 00:17:29.932
  • don't like you and you canforgive you and you won't have
  • 00:17:29.965 --> 00:17:36.371
  • mercy on you, and you're angrywith yourself, and that anger
  • 00:17:36.405 --> 00:17:42.711
  • turns inside into depression,and you're depressed and nothing
  • 00:17:42.744 --> 00:17:48.450
  • seems to lift you out of it.
  • 00:17:48.484 --> 00:17:50.085
  • You know why you loathe yourselfand you won't let anybody close
  • 00:17:50.119 --> 00:17:55.090
  • 'cause, "How could you love me?"
  • 00:17:55.124 --> 00:17:56.525
  • and you're only attracted topeople who are mean because they
  • 00:17:56.558 --> 00:17:59.328
  • are a reflection of how youthink about yourself, 'cause if
  • 00:17:59.361 --> 00:18:01.997
  • anybody comes along and they'reare too nice you run them away.
  • 00:18:02.030 --> 00:18:05.267
  • You run them away because youdisagree with them, because you
  • 00:18:05.300 --> 00:18:08.303
  • don't think you're worthy oflove, and you won't receive the
  • 00:18:08.337 --> 00:18:11.473
  • best of life because you don'treally think you deserve the
  • 00:18:11.507 --> 00:18:15.611
  • best of life, so you play therole and get the reward that you
  • 00:18:15.644 --> 00:18:20.449
  • have pre-scripted in your mindthat you deserve.
  • 00:18:20.482 --> 00:18:25.187
  • "To the loathing of thy person."
  • 00:18:25.220 --> 00:18:29.625
  • How could a relationship work?
  • 00:18:29.658 --> 00:18:31.793
  • Ain't no way for it to work, howcould you have somebody that
  • 00:18:31.827 --> 00:18:36.598
  • loves you when you don't loveyou, that's what the text means.
  • 00:18:36.632 --> 00:18:42.804
  • "To the loathing."
  • 00:18:42.838 --> 00:18:44.540
  • You were out in the open field,"To the loathing of thy person."
  • 00:18:44.573 --> 00:18:50.145
  • Oh yes, you love Jesus, "Oh, howI love Jesus."
  • 00:18:50.179 --> 00:18:59.188
  • Well, you do good at lovingJesus, that ain't the problem,
  • 00:19:01.156 --> 00:19:03.525
  • I'm not talking about lovingJesus, it's easy to love Jesus.
  • 00:19:03.559 --> 00:19:08.130
  • Yes, you love Jesus, but howabout, "Oh, how I love you?"
  • 00:19:08.163 --> 00:19:15.837
  • "To the loathing."
  • 00:19:20.709 --> 00:19:23.278
  • I found my enemy and it's me,I found my enemy,
  • 00:19:23.312 --> 00:19:33.222
  • it took me awhile, took me yearsto find him, I found him.
  • 00:19:33.255 --> 00:19:36.325
  • I looked in the mirror one dayand I saw him face to face, I
  • 00:19:36.358 --> 00:19:38.493
  • looked him head on, "So you'rethe one who's been making all of
  • 00:19:38.527 --> 00:19:41.964
  • dumb decisions and messing upthings and going it all, and
  • 00:19:41.997 --> 00:19:44.833
  • crazy to --
  • 00:19:44.866 --> 00:19:45.968
  • So you're the one who keepplaying the fool and
  • 00:19:46.001 --> 00:19:48.237
  • sabotaging yourself?
  • 00:19:48.270 --> 00:19:49.671
  • So you're the terrorist whostrap bombs around yourself and
  • 00:19:49.705 --> 00:19:53.442
  • blew up that opportunity?
  • 00:19:53.475 --> 00:19:55.377
  • You blew that up yourself,'cause you don't think you
  • 00:19:55.410 --> 00:19:58.447
  • deserve no better, do you?"
  • 00:19:58.480 --> 00:20:00.582
  • So you keep thinking back intowhat you think you deserve, "To
  • 00:20:00.616 --> 00:20:08.357
  • the loathing of thy person,"but I will not,
  • 00:20:08.390 --> 00:20:16.398
  • I will not,
  • 00:20:16.431 --> 00:20:23.739
  • I will not die here.
  • 00:20:23.772 --> 00:20:30.279
  • I was ministering, I wascounseling a brother going
  • 00:20:37.252 --> 00:20:39.821
  • through a crisis and I wastelling him, "I understand how
  • 00:20:39.855 --> 00:20:42.257
  • you feel, I understand whatyou're going through because I
  • 00:20:42.291 --> 00:20:45.027
  • remember taking a bottle ofpills and being mad because I
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:47.663
  • woke up."
  • 00:20:47.696 --> 00:20:53.435
  • I'm not there now, but I havebeen there, and I wanted him to
  • 00:20:53.468 --> 00:20:57.673
  • know I have been there, and youcannot help people if you're not
  • 00:20:57.706 --> 00:21:00.409
  • willing to put yourself on theline.
  • 00:21:00.442 --> 00:21:04.246
  • I will not die here.
  • 00:21:08.183 --> 00:21:16.892
  • And then it says,"When I passed by you,"
  • 00:21:16.925 --> 00:21:25.500
  • when I passed, that's
  • 00:21:27.536 --> 00:21:29.237
  • why I love it when the glory ofthe Lord comes into a building
  • 00:21:29.271 --> 00:21:31.773
  • like this, because whenever theglory of the Lord comes into a
  • 00:21:31.807 --> 00:21:34.509
  • church he is passing by, he isdoing inspections, he's doing
  • 00:21:34.543 --> 00:21:39.247
  • checkups, he is dealing withissues, he's doing x-rays and
  • 00:21:39.281 --> 00:21:43.552
  • ultrasounds and sonograms andchecking you out.
  • 00:21:43.585 --> 00:21:47.089
  • He didn't just come so you couldget your praise on, he came to
  • 00:21:47.122 --> 00:21:50.359
  • do a real inspection, "How youreally doing?
  • 00:21:50.392 --> 00:21:53.061
  • Are you really good?
  • 00:21:53.095 --> 00:21:54.696

  • Adam, where art thou?
  • 00:22:03.338 --> 00:22:04.940
  • It is gone, you are missing inaction, I want you back."
  • 00:22:04.973 --> 00:22:09.010
