  • and you know what?
  • 00:00:01.110 --> 00:00:02.090
  • I believe deep within the soul,
  • 00:00:02.100 --> 00:00:04.100
  • within the heart of every person,
  • 00:00:04.110 --> 00:00:05.260
  • they want to know their real unique purpose on the earth.
  • 00:00:05.270 --> 00:00:08.150
  • If that sounds like you, stay around.
  • 00:00:08.160 --> 00:00:10.210
  • I think I got a message that'll help you.
  • 00:00:10.220 --> 00:00:13.030

  • 00:00:15.000 --> 00:00:28.240
  • - Blessed be the God and Father, verse three,
  • 00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:30.270
  • of Ephesians 1, of our Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:00:30.280 --> 00:00:34.030
  • who has blessed us with every,
  • 00:00:34.040 --> 00:00:36.220
  • how much is every?
  • 00:00:36.230 --> 00:00:38.020
  • (audience responding)
  • 00:00:38.030 --> 00:00:39.170
  • Every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ.
  • 00:00:39.180 --> 00:00:42.180
  • What does Christ mean?
  • 00:00:42.190 --> 00:00:44.120
  • Anointed, anointing means the Holy Spirit
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:47.100
  • lives in you, so let me rephrase that.
  • 00:00:47.110 --> 00:00:50.060
  • Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:53.240
  • who has emptied out heaven and given
  • 00:00:53.250 --> 00:00:56.060
  • me everything heaven has, by the fact that
  • 00:00:56.070 --> 00:00:59.210
  • the Holy Spirit lives on the inside of me.
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:02.240
  • Whoo, that's shouting stuff right there.
  • 00:01:02.250 --> 00:01:06.150
  • Now let's move forward, just as He chose us.
  • 00:01:06.160 --> 00:01:09.280
  • When did he choose me?
  • 00:01:11.110 --> 00:01:12.140
  • Before the foundations of the world.
  • 00:01:12.150 --> 00:01:14.270
  • So I was chosen before God ever said,
  • 00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:17.120
  • "Let there be light."
  • 00:01:17.130 --> 00:01:18.260
  • How?
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:22.090
  • For what reason?
  • 00:01:22.100 --> 00:01:23.240
  • That I should be holy, that means separate, and apart,
  • 00:01:23.250 --> 00:01:26.080
  • and without blame before Him in love.
  • 00:01:26.090 --> 00:01:28.210
  • That means no guilt, no shame, no condemnation.
  • 00:01:28.220 --> 00:01:31.140
  • Why?
  • 00:01:31.150 --> 00:01:32.220
  • Because he's paid the penalty for everything
  • 00:01:32.230 --> 00:01:34.010
  • I screwed up and all my sins.
  • 00:01:34.020 --> 00:01:35.260
  • So when I stand before God, I stand before God
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:38.100
  • in a state of perfection in his love.
  • 00:01:38.110 --> 00:01:41.020
  • He doesn't look upon my sin, why?
  • 00:01:41.030 --> 00:01:42.250
  • Jesus washed them away.
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:44.190
  • (clapping and cheering)
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:45.180
  • So he chose me before God said,
  • 00:01:45.190 --> 00:01:47.290
  • "Let there be light"
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:49.130
  • that I would be distinct, unique, hand-picked
  • 00:01:49.140 --> 00:01:52.120
  • and without him bearing no shame,
  • 00:01:52.130 --> 00:01:54.140
  • standing before him with no shame.
  • 00:01:54.150 --> 00:01:56.050
  • Ahh.
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:57.150
  • (clapping)
  • 00:01:57.160 --> 00:01:58.220
  • Now what's the nature of being chosen?
  • 00:01:58.230 --> 00:02:02.100
  • It's like this, having predestined us
  • 00:02:02.110 --> 00:02:05.120
  • to adoption as sons, by Jesus Christ unto himself.
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:13.010
  • Why did he do it?
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:14.240
  • According to the good pleasure of his will.
  • 00:02:16.000 --> 00:02:18.170
  • Just because he wanted to.
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:20.150
  • Thank you, Lord, for the reading of your word.
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:23.170
  • Go on to chapter three, verse eight.
  • 00:02:23.180 --> 00:02:28.180
  • To me, who am less than the least of all the saints
  • 00:02:30.000 --> 00:02:33.260
  • this grace was given that I should preach among
  • 00:02:36.100 --> 00:02:39.190
  • the Gentiles.
  • 00:02:39.200 --> 00:02:40.260
  • Gentile is everybody that is not a Jew.
  • 00:02:40.270 --> 00:02:42.220
  • That I should preach the unsearchable riches
  • 00:02:43.260 --> 00:02:48.010
  • of the anointing, or of Christ.
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:50.020
  • To make all see what is the fellowship of this mystery,
  • 00:02:50.030 --> 00:02:55.030
  • which from the beginning of the ages
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:57.190
  • has been hidden in God who created all things
  • 00:02:57.200 --> 00:03:01.170
  • through Jesus Christ to the intent
  • 00:03:01.180 --> 00:03:05.140
  • that the manifold wisdom of God might be made known
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:09.140
  • by the church to the principalities
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:12.190
  • and powers in heavenly places.
  • 00:03:12.200 --> 00:03:15.160
  • If you'll give me about 25 or 30 minutes,
  • 00:03:15.170 --> 00:03:18.090
  • this is going to get gooder and gooder and gooder.
  • 00:03:18.100 --> 00:03:21.290
  • I know that's not a word,
  • 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:23.070
  • but it sounds good to me, hallelujah.
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:25.180
  • (clapping and cheering)
  • 00:03:25.190 --> 00:03:26.160
  • So Lord blessed Jesus name,
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:28.010
  • tell your neighbor on both sides, here we go.
  • 00:03:28.020 --> 00:03:29.180
  • Here we go, here we go.
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:31.110
  • (couging)
  • 00:03:31.120 --> 00:03:32.270
  • So I want to move forward in the fact that I've got
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:36.150
  • to get to two or three other things
  • 00:03:36.160 --> 00:03:39.270
  • if time will permit me to, and it's so good.
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:44.050
  • I mean one of them, the second one
  • 00:03:44.060 --> 00:03:45.260
  • that I'm going to talk to you about,
  • 00:03:45.270 --> 00:03:47.120
  • you going to want to knock over a whole row of chairs
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:48.280
  • when I preach that thing.
  • 00:03:48.290 --> 00:03:49.260
  • I mean, it's just so good.
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:51.220
  • So, we look at this right here,
  • 00:03:52.220 --> 00:03:55.020
  • and the Bible says that he predestined us.
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:04:00.040
  • I've talked about predestination.
  • 00:04:01.090 --> 00:04:02.150
  • We ran a bunch of laps last week,
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:03.230
  • talking about that, that was a good day.
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:05.090
  • According to the good pleasure of his will.
  • 00:04:06.150 --> 00:04:10.260
  • Predestined, pre first, destiny last,
  • 00:04:10.270 --> 00:04:13.110
  • he went to my end first, okay?
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:16.230
  • Let me review it because I'm going to hook it to according to.
  • 00:04:16.240 --> 00:04:19.210
  • He went to our end first.
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:22.210
  • God said in Isaiah 42 and 10 he said,
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:26.040
  • "I am the Lord thy God and there is none like me."
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:29.040
  • And then he defined what made him different.
  • 00:04:30.080 --> 00:04:31.270
  • He said knowing the end from the beginning.
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:34.150
  • (cheering)
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:36.010
  • Not meaning I know the difference between the two.
  • 00:04:36.020 --> 00:04:38.110
  • He said I knew how it was gonna end up before I started.
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:41.280
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:43.190
  • Why?
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:44.260
  • Because I don't start until I've finished.
  • 00:04:44.270 --> 00:04:46.210
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:04:46.220 --> 00:04:49.000
  • So I come into your life and I write the last chapter.
  • 00:04:49.010 --> 00:04:53.020
  • And then I back up, and then I ordain your steps
  • 00:04:53.030 --> 00:04:57.270
  • to take you in to the last chapter.
  • 00:04:57.280 --> 00:05:01.000
  • But I am a God that is big enough
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:03.130
  • that even if you have a bad day and you begin
  • 00:05:03.140 --> 00:05:05.220
  • to get off track, that I can make all things work together
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:09.130
  • for the good of those that love God
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:11.190
  • and are called according to his purpose.
  • 00:05:11.200 --> 00:05:13.230
  • So if you have a good day, I can make it work out.
  • 00:05:13.240 --> 00:05:16.240
  • But if you have a bad day, I'm still big enough to go out,
  • 00:05:16.250 --> 00:05:20.050
  • get you and bring you back in.
  • 00:05:20.060 --> 00:05:22.000
  • If you go up, praise God.
  • 00:05:22.010 --> 00:05:24.010
  • But if you go down and sink to a low place,
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:26.110
  • I'll scoop you back up and I'll make it all fit
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:29.090
  • in to my intended end.
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:30.290
  • I came here to tell somebody that feels
  • 00:05:31.000 --> 00:05:33.020
  • like you've gotten so far off course,
  • 00:05:33.030 --> 00:05:35.160
  • your God is big enough to take your worst mistake,
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:38.160
  • turn that thing back around, and get it back on track,
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:42.150
  • and all things work together for the good
  • 00:05:42.160 --> 00:05:44.250
  • of those that love God.
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:46.110
  • God's going to cause everything to fall in place.
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:49.140
  • And God can move it.
  • 00:05:49.150 --> 00:05:50.220
  • He can shift it.
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:51.230
  • He can change it.
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:53.140
  • You just got to believe it, hallelujah.
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:05:55.290
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:05:56.000 --> 00:05:57.160
  • (organ music)
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:05:59.230
  • So heaven has got this plan.
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:02.050
  • I've been predestined.
  • 00:06:03.010 --> 00:06:04.220
  • He went to my end.
  • 00:06:04.230 --> 00:06:06.100
  • He's ordained my steps, okay?
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:08.230
  • He's done that in heaven.
  • 00:06:08.240 --> 00:06:10.060
  • He did it before the world began.
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:12.090
  • So he's already planned it out.
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:15.200
  • Why?
  • 00:06:15.210 --> 00:06:17.040
  • Because God doesn't have a past, a present and a future.
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:18.280
  • God is I Am.
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:20.110
  • (cheering)
  • 00:06:20.120 --> 00:06:22.200
  • Moses stood at the bush and said,
  • 00:06:24.150 --> 00:06:25.280
  • "Who do I tell Pharaoh sent me?"
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:27.120
  • He said, "tell him I Am."
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:29.170
  • Not I was, not I'm going to be one day.
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:34.000
  • Not I'm growing into, I Am.
  • 00:06:34.010 --> 00:06:37.010
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:38.200
  • I Am yesterday, I Am today, tomorrow I'll still be I Am.
  • 00:06:38.210 --> 00:06:43.210
  • I'm perpetually in a state of I Am.
  • 00:06:44.260 --> 00:06:46.290
  • (organ music)
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:50.070
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:06:50.080 --> 00:06:52.070
  • (laughing)
  • 00:06:52.080 --> 00:06:54.090
  • I preach myself happy sometimes.
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:56.080
  • I'm going to go right over there to the book store
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:57.230
  • and buy my CD and play it all the way home.
  • 00:06:57.240 --> 00:07:00.200
  • (clapping)
  • 00:07:00.210 --> 00:07:01.240
  • So, he's predestined and he said,
  • 00:07:01.250 --> 00:07:05.180
  • now my life is supposed to be lived according to his will.
  • 00:07:05.190 --> 00:07:10.170
  • According to, so I'm here on earth,
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:14.230
  • he's planned it in heaven,
  • 00:07:14.240 --> 00:07:16.100
  • and there's supposed to be a chord.
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:18.220
  • A chord is a musical term.
  • 00:07:20.130 --> 00:07:22.040
  • So now he's saying that there's supposed
  • 00:07:23.220 --> 00:07:25.190
  • to be a harmony between what's been predestined
  • 00:07:25.200 --> 00:07:28.270
  • in heaven and what I'm walking out in the earth.
  • 00:07:28.280 --> 00:07:31.100
  • Play a chord.
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:33.170
  • (music)
  • 00:07:33.180 --> 00:07:35.180
  • That's pleasing, isn't it?
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.250
  • In other words, every key matches the other key.
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:42.090
  • And when you put them together, they make a great sound.
  • 00:07:43.190 --> 00:07:46.200
  • Your life, the sound that your life makes every day,
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:51.210
  • should be in according to.
  • 00:07:52.170 --> 00:07:54.240
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:07:54.250 --> 00:07:55.260
  • Now, hit discord.
  • 00:07:55.270 --> 00:07:58.050
  • (bad sounding music)
  • 00:07:58.060 --> 00:08:00.030
  • (laughing)
  • 00:08:00.040 --> 00:08:01.010
  • That's not pleasant is it?
  • 00:08:01.020 --> 00:08:02.080
  • So when I get up one morning and I say
  • 00:08:02.090 --> 00:08:04.120
  • I'm going to do my own thing, hit that.
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:07.290
  • (bad sounding music)
  • 00:08:08.000 --> 00:08:08.270
  • So he takes it, and I'm not
  • 00:08:08.280 --> 00:08:10.250
  • in accordance with heaven's plan.
  • 00:08:10.260 --> 00:08:13.140
  • I'm running against heaven's plan.
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:15.180
  • And those of you that want to live that way,
  • 00:08:15.190 --> 00:08:18.020
  • you better get toughened up real quick,
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:19.280
  • because that's usually a very unpleasant journey.
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:23.080
  • And God will still get you in your discord.
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:27.010
  • Hit discord again.
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:28.100
  • (bad sounding music)
  • 00:08:28.110 --> 00:08:29.080
  • God will hit you in your discord
  • 00:08:29.090 --> 00:08:30.230
  • and he'll send you to Whale University like he did Jonah.
  • 00:08:30.240 --> 00:08:33.200
  • And when God gets you at Whale University,
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:35.230
  • and some of you all done got about six degrees
  • 00:08:35.240 --> 00:08:37.200
  • from Whale University.
  • 00:08:37.210 --> 00:08:39.000
  • You need to come on, get your degree
  • 00:08:39.010 --> 00:08:40.180
  • and start living your life.
  • 00:08:40.190 --> 00:08:42.040
  • And what God will do is he'll grab you at Whale University,
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:45.080
  • and he'll bring you back in and say
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:46.280
  • that's all right, I still work all things together
  • 00:08:46.290 --> 00:08:49.190
  • for the good of those that love God and called-
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:52.000
  • I know you had to spend three days in a fish,
  • 00:08:52.010 --> 00:08:55.000
  • but I'm glad you got your certificate,
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:57.080
  • and now we going to work this thing back out.
  • 00:08:57.090 --> 00:08:59.140
  • Oh, I serve a God that can take the good,
  • 00:08:59.150 --> 00:09:02.260
  • the bad, and the ugly and still make something beautiful.
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:06.120
  • I don't know if that makes you shout,
  • 00:09:06.130 --> 00:09:08.010
  • but that makes me want to run all the way downtown.
  • 00:09:08.020 --> 00:09:10.090
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:09:10.100 --> 00:09:13.240
  • (drums playing)
  • 00:09:13.250 --> 00:09:16.060
  • Ahh.
  • 00:09:16.070 --> 00:09:17.020
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:09:18.160 --> 00:09:21.260
  • (drums playing)
  • 00:09:22.280 --> 00:09:24.060
  • Whooo, he's jumping in the skinny jeans, oh.
  • 00:09:24.070 --> 00:09:27.070
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:09:27.080 --> 00:09:30.180
  • (laughing)
  • 00:09:36.230 --> 00:09:38.290
  • Now, in chapter 1, he predestined you.
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:45.280
  • So God paints a picture of your life
  • 00:09:45.290 --> 00:09:48.130
  • and shows it to himself.
  • 00:09:49.150 --> 00:09:51.020
  • He looks at it.
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:53.270
  • Then you go to chapter 3, and in verse 8 he says,
  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:10:00.280
  • to me, to me.
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:05.220
  • So God will paint a picture of your life,
  • 00:10:07.100 --> 00:10:09.140
  • he'll look at it himself, then he'll flip
  • 00:10:09.150 --> 00:10:11.080
  • it around and start showing it to you.
  • 00:10:11.090 --> 00:10:13.060
  • He doesn't show you the details all at one time,
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:18.020
  • because you wouldn't do it.
  • 00:10:18.030 --> 00:10:19.130
  • So he shows you glimpses and snapshots.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:25.030
  • He's got the details.
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:26.230
  • He's intricately involved in the details.
  • 00:10:26.240 --> 00:10:29.170
  • But he don't give you all the details.
  • 00:10:29.180 --> 00:10:31.210
  • Because he knows you would never move forward
  • 00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:35.040
  • if he shows you everything the journey will entail.
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:40.100
  • So God takes it, after he looks at it,
  • 00:10:41.220 --> 00:10:45.120
  • he turns around and he shows it to you.
  • 00:10:45.130 --> 00:10:48.120

  • the foundations of the earth were laid.
  • 00:11:02.020 --> 00:11:04.110
  • You were already chosen in Christ Jesus
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:08.000

  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:12:00.290 --> 00:12:03.020
  • Because you've heard me say this,
  • 00:12:03.030 --> 00:12:04.160
  • this is probably the third time now in my tenure.
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:06.180
  • Sometime being in step with God takes
  • 00:12:06.190 --> 00:12:09.100
  • you out of step with people.
  • 00:12:09.110 --> 00:12:11.130
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:12:11.140 --> 00:12:13.040
  • And that's hard.
  • 00:12:13.050 --> 00:12:14.100
  • I noticed your Amen was not nearly as jubilant.
  • 00:12:15.270 --> 00:12:18.150
  • (laughing)
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:20.000
  • You agreed with me but you were not happy about it.
  • 00:12:20.010 --> 00:12:22.080
  • Because we want everybody to like our future.
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:27.270
  • And when people don't like our future,
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:31.020
  • then we've got to be careful not
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:33.060
  • to compromise it to keep them.
  • 00:12:33.070 --> 00:12:35.050
  • Because God does not go around
  • 00:12:38.080 --> 00:12:41.070
  • and ask everybody in your life's permission to do his will.
  • 00:12:41.080 --> 00:12:44.180
  • He does it out of the good pleasure of his will.
  • 00:12:46.090 --> 00:12:49.000
  • And then, he does not catapult you
  • 00:12:50.060 --> 00:12:52.260
  • in to your ultimate destiny and purpose.
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:55.260
  • You take steps.
  • 00:12:55.270 --> 00:12:57.290
  • Well, I'm going to go to service today
  • 00:12:58.000 --> 00:12:59.090
  • and God's going to just thrust me in-
  • 00:12:59.100 --> 00:13:00.260
  • No, God's going to give you steps.
  • 00:13:00.270 --> 00:13:02.240
  • He's going to give you steps, and you got to keep-
  • 00:13:02.250 --> 00:13:05.000
  • This is not a jump, this is not a leap,
  • 00:13:05.010 --> 00:13:06.270
  • this is not a run, this is not shot out of a cannon.
  • 00:13:06.280 --> 00:13:09.130
  • This is the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.
  • 00:13:09.140 --> 00:13:12.110
  • And you need to take all the steps
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:14.040
  • that he's got for you today, and then you need
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:16.070
  • to get up tomorrow morning and guess what?
  • 00:13:16.080 --> 00:13:18.000
  • Start taking steps.
  • 00:13:18.010 --> 00:13:19.040
  • You need to keep step-
  • 00:13:19.050 --> 00:13:20.110
  • You just got to learn how to keep walking.
  • 00:13:20.120 --> 00:13:22.070
  • Can I just tell you something I feel in my heart,
  • 00:13:22.080 --> 00:13:24.070
  • as I was preaching today?
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:25.180
  • I feel like I need to tell somebody
  • 00:13:25.190 --> 00:13:27.090
  • that the next steps you take are going to be significant steps.
  • 00:13:27.100 --> 00:13:30.250
  • You need to be very mindful.
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:32.260
  • You need to be in prayer, because you're
  • 00:13:32.270 --> 00:13:35.010
  • not just taking random steps.
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:37.080
  • Your steps that you're taking right now are very strategic
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:40.180
  • and they are very, very significant.
  • 00:13:40.190 --> 00:13:42.200
  • Who am I talking to?
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:43.270
  • Somebody that you know I'm talking to you,
  • 00:13:43.280 --> 00:13:45.280
  • you might need to just stand,
  • 00:13:45.290 --> 00:13:48.070
  • you might need to just practice taking a step.
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:50.140
  • I don't know.
  • 00:13:50.150 --> 00:13:51.200
  • If you have to, get out in the aisle
  • 00:13:51.210 --> 00:13:52.270
  • and just take two or three steps.
  • 00:13:52.280 --> 00:13:54.130
  • Help me out, band, significant steps, significant steps,
  • 00:13:54.140 --> 00:13:58.080
  • significant steps, you gotta take significant steps.
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:14:01.130
  • Significant steps, significant steps, significant steps,
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:04.150
  • significant.
  • 00:14:04.160 --> 00:14:05.290
  • Who in this place knows, I'm at a moment in my life,
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:09.200
  • I need to chuck some voices out.
  • 00:14:09.210 --> 00:14:11.270
  • I need to get out of some environments.
  • 00:14:11.280 --> 00:14:14.040
  • I need to hear the voice of God.
  • 00:14:14.050 --> 00:14:16.090
  • These are some of the most important steps I've ever taken.
  • 00:14:16.100 --> 00:14:19.290
  • Shout if you know these steps are significant.
  • 00:14:20.000 --> 00:14:24.030
  • (shouting)
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:25.130
  • (organ music)
  • 00:14:25.140 --> 00:14:27.110
  • That's not for everybody, but that is for somebody.
  • 00:14:27.120 --> 00:14:30.100
  • Hallelujah, significant steps, significant steps.
  • 00:14:31.230 --> 00:14:36.090
  • Say it with me, significant steps.
  • 00:14:37.140 --> 00:14:38.070
  • (audience talking)
  • 00:14:38.080 --> 00:14:41.110
  • So then he says, I'm trying, I'm trying.
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:45.070
  • Verse nine, so God predestined you,
  • 00:14:47.010 --> 00:14:50.200
  • chosen you, adopt you, painted your picture.
  • 00:14:50.210 --> 00:14:53.210
  • He looks at it himself.
  • 00:14:53.220 --> 00:14:55.120
  • Chapter 3, verse 8, he flips it around,
  • 00:14:55.130 --> 00:14:57.020
  • he shows it to you, then look at verse nine.
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:59.180
  • And make all see, uh oh.
  • 00:15:00.200 --> 00:15:03.120
  • (laughing)
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:05.140
  • Then he flips the picture around
  • 00:15:05.150 --> 00:15:06.270
  • and shows it to everybody else.
  • 00:15:06.280 --> 00:15:08.140
  • (cheering)
  • 00:15:10.230 --> 00:15:12.260
  • And that's when the haters start coming.
  • 00:15:12.270 --> 00:15:15.170
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:15:15.180 --> 00:15:18.280
  • Because Joseph was all right until he started talkin'
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:25.070
  • about his picture to other people.
  • 00:15:25.080 --> 00:15:27.000
  • And there'll come a day you got to talk about it,
  • 00:15:29.220 --> 00:15:32.080
  • because no man accomplishes his destiny alone.
  • 00:15:32.090 --> 00:15:35.120
  • But you need to be careful who you communicate it with,
  • 00:15:37.120 --> 00:15:40.200
  • because everybody does not celebrate your future.
  • 00:15:40.210 --> 00:15:44.190
  • And some people are so acquainted
  • 00:15:44.200 --> 00:15:46.170
  • with all the failures of your past,
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:48.040
  • they don't believe your future's even possible.
  • 00:15:48.050 --> 00:15:50.240
  • But the devil is alive.
  • 00:15:50.250 --> 00:15:52.140
  • Every man in Christ, old things are past away,
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:56.030
  • and behold all th-
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:57.050
  • Y'all got to stop.
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:58.180
  • Y'all are taking up my time.
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:16:01.010
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:16:01.020 --> 00:16:02.000
  • (organ music)
  • 00:16:02.010 --> 00:16:04.160
  • So he takes it and he shows it to others.
  • 00:16:05.210 --> 00:16:08.040
  • Now, this is very important right here.
  • 00:16:08.050 --> 00:16:10.260
  • Two things I need to share with this
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:14.020
  • and I'll land this plane.
  • 00:16:14.030 --> 00:16:15.230
  • When God turns your picture around
  • 00:16:15.240 --> 00:16:17.140
  • and starts putting it on display, number one,
  • 00:16:17.150 --> 00:16:20.290
  • you gotta understand that sometimes your seasons
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.100
  • of loneliness and isolation is because you're not ready
  • 00:16:23.110 --> 00:16:26.030
  • to be put on display.
  • 00:16:26.040 --> 00:16:27.250
  • (clapping)
  • 00:16:27.260 --> 00:16:29.240
  • So God will isolate you, because
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:33.170
  • he's doing something inside of you.
  • 00:16:33.180 --> 00:16:36.200
  • He has to get the voices out of your head.
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:38.140
  • He has to get the other influences away,
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:40.170
  • and he isolates you, and you wonder what's going-
  • 00:16:40.180 --> 00:16:42.150
  • You're rebuking the devil.
  • 00:16:42.160 --> 00:16:44.010
  • I rebuke Sa-
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:45.150
  • And you don't understand, it's God who's pulling
  • 00:16:45.160 --> 00:16:46.230
  • you out of that circle.
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:47.280
  • Because he understands you can't hear his voice
  • 00:16:50.070 --> 00:16:52.120
  • while everybody else has got their voice going on in your,
  • 00:16:52.130 --> 00:16:54.270
  • and so he pulls you out and then there's something
  • 00:16:54.280 --> 00:16:57.170
  • he begins to do in you, inside of the aloneness
  • 00:16:57.180 --> 00:17:01.140
  • that makes you ready when you go on display.
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:04.210
  • The worst thing that can happen for you
  • 00:17:04.220 --> 00:17:06.120
  • is for you to be put on display before your time, okay?
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:09.190
  • (clapping)
  • 00:17:10.230 --> 00:17:12.190
  • So he shows you to everybody else.
  • 00:17:12.200 --> 00:17:14.160
  • Here's the dilemma.
  • 00:17:14.170 --> 00:17:16.120
  • When everybody else starts looking,
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:18.080
  • at first it was just you and God
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:19.240
  • and y'all can talk about it privately.
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:22.100
  • But now everybody else is looking
  • 00:17:22.110 --> 00:17:23.270
  • at what you say is your picture, but they look
  • 00:17:23.280 --> 00:17:27.050
  • at your reality and the two don't match.
  • 00:17:27.060 --> 00:17:29.160
  • So this is what God does.
  • 00:17:31.270 --> 00:17:35.050
  • When you have something happening in your life
  • 00:17:36.100 --> 00:17:38.230
  • that doesn't look like your picture,
  • 00:17:38.240 --> 00:17:40.280
  • God does not go back and redraw the picture
  • 00:17:40.290 --> 00:17:44.060
  • to accommodate your disfunction.
  • 00:17:44.070 --> 00:17:46.030
  • But God will change the thing that's disfunctinal
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:50.190
  • to make it look like the picture.
  • 00:17:50.200 --> 00:17:52.290
  • See, some of you, he had to heal you.
  • 00:17:53.000 --> 00:17:56.200
  • Why?
  • 00:17:56.210 --> 00:17:57.280
  • Because that affliction was not in the picture.
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:18:00.040
  • So God had to heal you to make sure that you live like
  • 00:18:00.050 --> 00:18:03.290
  • the picture he had painted.
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.060
  • He had to bring you out of that indebtedness,
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:07.230
  • because poverty was not a part of your book.
  • 00:18:07.240 --> 00:18:10.030
  • It was not a part of your story.
  • 00:18:10.040 --> 00:18:11.280
  • So God had to reach in and do it.
  • 00:18:11.290 --> 00:18:14.050
  • He wasn't going to repaint the picture
  • 00:18:14.060 --> 00:18:16.250
  • to accommodate your brokenness.
  • 00:18:16.260 --> 00:18:18.280
  • He had to heal you and bring you out of your brokenness,
  • 00:18:18.290 --> 00:18:21.260
  • because your picture don't have a broken you in it.
  • 00:18:21.270 --> 00:18:24.160
  • It's got a whole healed you on in the inside of it.
  • 00:18:24.170 --> 00:18:27.200
  • So whenever God is doing something,
  • 00:18:27.210 --> 00:18:29.260
  • he's changing you to fit the picture.
  • 00:18:29.270 --> 00:18:32.120
  • He's not changing the picture to fit you.
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:34.170
  • (clapping)
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:37.240
  • The second thing I wanna share about this is,
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:44.230
  • anything that stands in between you and your future,
  • 00:18:44.240 --> 00:18:49.240
  • that threatens it, now God does not fight every battle.
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:53.290
  • Sometimes we try to figure out,
  • 00:18:54.000 --> 00:18:55.140
  • what battles do I fight, and then I have all
  • 00:18:55.150 --> 00:18:57.180
  • these spiritual people say, "the battle is the Lord's".
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:19:00.100
  • Boy don't that sound good?
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:01.250
  • (laughing)
  • 00:19:01.260 --> 00:19:02.230
  • You goin' through hell, they're,
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:03.210
  • "the battle is the Lord's."
  • 00:19:03.220 --> 00:19:04.150
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:05.210
  • (laughing)
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:07.290
  • The battle over your parking ticket is not the Lord's.
  • 00:19:09.120 --> 00:19:12.230
  • (laughing)
  • 00:19:12.240 --> 00:19:15.020
  • You going to have to go pay it.
  • 00:19:16.000 --> 00:19:17.190
  • (laughing)
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:20.010
  • That's not the Lord's.
  • 00:19:20.020 --> 00:19:21.060
  • God gets involved when there's something
  • 00:19:23.070 --> 00:19:25.240
  • that threatens your destiny.
  • 00:19:25.250 --> 00:19:27.160
  • (cheering)
  • 00:19:27.170 --> 00:19:29.250
  • And when there's something that gets in front of you
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:33.010
  • and says I'm going to keep you out,
  • 00:19:33.020 --> 00:19:35.050
  • that's when the battle is the Lord's.
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:40.120
  • Pharaoh said I'm not going to let the people go.
  • 00:19:41.270 --> 00:19:46.000
  • Dilemma, God's already said I've given you
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:48.050
  • a land with milk and honey.
  • 00:19:48.060 --> 00:19:49.150
  • So God says, "Moses, you get out the way.
  • 00:19:50.220 --> 00:19:52.120
  • "I'm going to deal with Pharaoh."
  • 00:19:52.130 --> 00:19:54.070
  • (cheering)
  • 00:19:54.080 --> 00:19:55.150
  • And God broke Pharaoh down to a nub, why?
  • 00:19:55.160 --> 00:19:58.280
  • Because they stood in the way of his promise to his people.
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:01.260
  • And when the military machine of Pharaoh chased 'em,
  • 00:20:01.270 --> 00:20:04.130
  • God swallowed them up in the Jordan River.
  • 00:20:04.140 --> 00:20:06.220
  • And when the heat was burning them up,
  • 00:20:06.230 --> 00:20:08.140
  • God said, "I'm going to take care of this.
  • 00:20:08.150 --> 00:20:10.000
  • "I'm going to give you a pillar of cloud."
  • 00:20:10.010 --> 00:20:11.210
  • And he says, "And when you cold at night,
  • 00:20:11.220 --> 00:20:13.070
  • "I'm going to give you a pillar of fire."
  • 00:20:13.080 --> 00:20:15.020
  • And he says, "I know you're hungry.
  • 00:20:15.030 --> 00:20:16.100
  • "I'm going to take hunger out of the way.
  • 00:20:16.110 --> 00:20:18.060
  • I'm going to give you manna and let the quail fly low."
  • 00:20:18.070 --> 00:20:20.240
  • Hallelujah, and God said,
  • 00:20:20.250 --> 00:20:22.090
  • "When you're thirsty, I'm going to give you water
  • 00:20:22.100 --> 00:20:23.250
  • out of a rock.
  • 00:20:23.260 --> 00:20:25.010
  • "And then when you get to Jericho
  • 00:20:25.020 --> 00:20:26.080
  • "and the walls are up, I'll make the walls fall
  • 00:20:26.090 --> 00:20:28.170
  • "all the way down."
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:29.220
  • Anything that stands in between you
  • 00:20:29.230 --> 00:20:32.190
  • and the promise God gave you, the battle is not yours,
  • 00:20:32.200 --> 00:20:37.050
  • the battle is, let me hear you say it.
  • 00:20:37.060 --> 00:20:40.100
  • (audience yelling)
  • 00:20:40.110 --> 00:20:41.180
  • Tell three people, say, "God's got it."
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:43.010
  • God's got it, God's got it.
  • 00:20:43.020 --> 00:20:45.030
  • (drums and organ playing)
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:47.040
  • Whoo.
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:48.010
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:20:48.020 --> 00:20:51.110
  • And I close, verse 10, to the intent, oh my.
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:21:00.180
  • God's took me through this whole journey,
  • 00:21:03.240 --> 00:21:06.210
  • and now he's telling me what is at the root of it.
  • 00:21:06.220 --> 00:21:09.070
  • This was the reason I started all of it.
  • 00:21:11.020 --> 00:21:15.150
  • This is my original intent.
  • 00:21:16.270 --> 00:21:19.080
  • To the intent, that the manifold wisdom of God might
  • 00:21:20.200 --> 00:21:25.050
  • be made known by the church.
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:27.080
  • Say that's me, that's me.
  • 00:21:27.090 --> 00:21:29.050
  • To the principalities and powers in heavenly places.
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:33.180
  • That's demonic.
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:38.220
  • The Bible describes demons as principalities,
  • 00:21:40.160 --> 00:21:44.090
  • rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.
  • 00:21:44.100 --> 00:21:48.010
  • You have an assignment against your assignment.
  • 00:21:49.190 --> 00:21:52.020
  • From Satan, from the devil.
  • 00:21:52.290 --> 00:21:54.140
  • And God says, "I'm going to take a picture
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:57.290
  • "and draw it and I'm going to look at it.
  • 00:21:58.000 --> 00:22:00.170
  • "Then I'm going to take the picture and flip it around.
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:02.090
  • "I'm going to let you look at it and start walking
  • 00:22:02.100 --> 00:22:04.190
  • "in accordance to it."
  • 00:22:04.200 --> 00:22:06.190
  • He said, "Then I'm going to turn around and put you
  • 00:22:06.200 --> 00:22:08.200
  • "on display and let everybody see it."
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:11.040
  • He said, "but my ultimate goal, is after
  • 00:22:11.050 --> 00:22:15.230
  • "the enemy has done everything he can to stop you,
  • 00:22:15.240 --> 00:22:20.240
  • "I'm going to stick you in that purpose
  • 00:22:22.000 --> 00:22:24.130
  • "and destiny that I prepared for you.
  • 00:22:24.140 --> 00:22:26.240
  • "And I'm going to put you right in front of your enemy's face."
  • 00:22:26.250 --> 00:22:29.250
  • (music)
  • 00:22:29.260 --> 00:22:31.020
  • "And I'm going to say, no matter what you did,
  • 00:22:31.030 --> 00:22:33.030
  • "they made it anyway.
  • 00:22:33.040 --> 00:22:35.010
  • "No matter how much you abused them, how much you hurt them,
  • 00:22:35.020 --> 00:22:39.010
  • "how much you betrayed them, how much you used them
  • 00:22:39.020 --> 00:22:42.170
  • "how much you abandoned them,
  • 00:22:42.180 --> 00:22:44.090
  • "no matter how much you afflicted them,
  • 00:22:44.100 --> 00:22:46.160
  • "they still walked it out and they still ended up
  • 00:22:46.170 --> 00:22:50.020
  • "where I wanted them to go."
  • 00:22:50.030 --> 00:22:51.290
  • God said, "I'm going to take your life and take the picture,
  • 00:22:52.000 --> 00:22:54.250
  • "and stick it in the devil's face and say,
  • 00:22:54.260 --> 00:22:56.290
  • "they got there anyway."
  • 00:22:57.000 --> 00:23:00.020
  • Can the people of God stand up all over this building
  • 00:23:00.030 --> 00:23:02.280
  • and give God ten seconds of praise
  • 00:23:02.290 --> 00:23:05.260
  • that you're going to get there anyway.
  • 00:23:05.270 --> 00:23:08.210
  • (cheering and clapping)
  • 00:23:08.220 --> 00:23:11.170
  • (organ music)
  • 00:23:11.180 --> 00:23:13.150
  • (music)
  • 00:23:13.160 --> 00:23:15.160
  • - Hopefully if you've taken this journey with me
  • 00:23:43.140 --> 00:23:45.120
  • through Distinction, that some of these things,
  • 00:23:45.130 --> 00:23:47.290
  • these descriptives that God has labeled his people,
  • 00:23:48.000 --> 00:23:50.030
  • hopefully they've been having meaning to you.
  • 00:23:50.040 --> 00:23:52.040
  • And hopefully they've been helping you,
  • 00:23:52.050 --> 00:23:53.200
  • because I know one thing, I certainly have even been
  • 00:23:53.210 --> 00:23:56.050
  • on somewhat of a discovery even as
  • 00:23:56.060 --> 00:23:57.220
  • I've been preparing these messages.
  • 00:23:57.230 --> 00:23:59.110
  • So, I hope that you've been enjoying them
  • 00:23:59.120 --> 00:24:01.160
  • and with that I want to just segue into the thank yous,
  • 00:24:01.170 --> 00:24:04.290
  • right here the last few minutes.
  • 00:24:05.000 --> 00:24:06.060
  • You know what, I'm so grateful for you.
  • 00:24:06.070 --> 00:24:08.200
  • I really am, I'm so grateful for ya.
  • 00:24:08.210 --> 00:24:10.190
  • I'm so grateful for the fact that we've had tenure
  • 00:24:10.200 --> 00:24:13.100
  • and that we've had time and that many of you
  • 00:24:13.110 --> 00:24:15.020
  • have just taken this journey
  • 00:24:15.030 --> 00:24:17.090
  • with Ron Carpenter Television all the way since 1988.
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:21.000
  • Some of you, it's been a year.
  • 00:24:21.010 --> 00:24:22.060
  • Some of you, ten years.
  • 00:24:22.070 --> 00:24:23.080
  • Some of you maybe longer.
  • 00:24:23.090 --> 00:24:24.120
  • Some of you maybe a week or two.
  • 00:24:24.130 --> 00:24:26.060
  • But it doesn't matter if we've been together
  • 00:24:26.070 --> 00:24:27.180
  • a long time or if this is the first time
  • 00:24:27.190 --> 00:24:29.040
  • you've ever watched, I'm grateful that you're here.
  • 00:24:29.050 --> 00:24:31.220
  • And it is our desire to bring
  • 00:24:31.230 --> 00:24:34.000
  • a message that'll add value to your life.
  • 00:24:34.010 --> 00:24:36.090
  • What greater thing than to get information,
  • 00:24:36.100 --> 00:24:38.100
  • to get truth, that'll somehow change
  • 00:24:38.110 --> 00:24:40.190
  • your life and turn things around.
  • 00:24:40.200 --> 00:24:42.020
  • That's what we believe the word of God does.
  • 00:24:42.030 --> 00:24:44.050
  • We believe there are keys, keys to the kingdom of heaven.
  • 00:24:44.060 --> 00:24:47.040
  • Keys to open up heaven in our life.
  • 00:24:47.050 --> 00:24:49.090
  • And another thing that I wanna tell you is,
  • 00:24:49.100 --> 00:24:51.030
  • I appreciate the fact that even while you've been with us,
