  • that every time we get together,
  • 00:00:02.010 --> 00:00:03.180
  • there's something special that God can do.
  • 00:00:03.190 --> 00:00:05.150
  • Something about an assembly, when people assemble together,
  • 00:00:05.160 --> 00:00:08.270
  • Jesus said, there I'll be in the midst of you.
  • 00:00:08.280 --> 00:00:11.050
  • Hang around because we're going to talk
  • 00:00:11.060 --> 00:00:12.170
  • about how to influence heaven.
  • 00:00:12.180 --> 00:00:14.170

  • RCTV 256 Message: 9-29-19 Airs: 12-8-19
  • 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:30.170
  • - [Announcer] Last week on Ron Carpenter Television.
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:34.060
  • - The fact that you have faith means you
  • 00:00:34.070 --> 00:00:36.070
  • pay no attention to what's in front of your face.
  • 00:00:36.080 --> 00:00:38.290
  • Do you focus on what you see,
  • 00:00:39.000 --> 00:00:41.020
  • or do you focus on what he said?
  • 00:00:41.030 --> 00:00:42.210
  • And Peter stepped out of the boat
  • 00:00:42.220 --> 00:00:44.210
  • and Peter did not walk on water.
  • 00:00:44.220 --> 00:00:46.240
  • Nobody's ever walked on water.
  • 00:00:46.250 --> 00:00:48.120
  • You can't walk on water.
  • 00:00:48.130 --> 00:00:49.270
  • Peter walked on words.
  • 00:00:49.280 --> 00:00:51.130
  • But, what he saw talked him out of what he heard.
  • 00:00:51.140 --> 00:00:54.240
  • - [Announcer] And now, this week's message.
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:56.290
  • - It is your enemy's job to put something
  • 00:00:58.060 --> 00:01:01.280
  • in front of your eyes that contradict
  • 00:01:01.290 --> 00:01:04.030
  • what you're asking for.
  • 00:01:04.040 --> 00:01:05.120
  • If you see something in front of you that is
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:09.080
  • a contradiction to what you know God promised
  • 00:01:09.090 --> 00:01:12.030
  • you ought to already call your cell group
  • 00:01:12.040 --> 00:01:14.060
  • and your life group members and throw a party,
  • 00:01:14.070 --> 00:01:16.150
  • buy cake and throw a party, because the fact
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:19.070
  • that you are seeing the opposite means
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:21.070
  • God has already heard your prayer
  • 00:01:21.080 --> 00:01:23.130
  • and you need to pay no attention to what your --
  • 00:01:23.140 --> 00:01:25.220
  • Do not let your eyes weary you.
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:28.170
  • Do not let your eyes exhaust you.
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:31.010
  • If God has given you a promise,
  • 00:01:31.020 --> 00:01:33.000
  • your God is not a man that he can lie
  • 00:01:33.010 --> 00:01:35.260
  • and your God watches over his word
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:38.070
  • and over his promises and he will.
  • 00:01:38.080 --> 00:01:40.130
  • I'm telling you, I feel this thing.
  • 00:01:40.140 --> 00:01:42.120
  • You're going to have to put up with me
  • 00:01:42.130 --> 00:01:43.260
  • because I can't preach it without preaching
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:45.230
  • it with fire and passion.
  • 00:01:45.240 --> 00:01:47.170
  • Your God will answer your prayers.
  • 00:01:47.180 --> 00:01:50.090
  • I need somebody to wave at me and say amen.
  • 00:01:50.100 --> 00:01:53.050
  • - [Crowd] Amen.
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:54.130
  • (crowd clapping and cheering)
  • 00:01:56.010 --> 00:01:59.250
  • - When you're praying
  • 00:02:03.040 --> 00:02:05.110
  • what exhausts you is when you see no difference.
  • 00:02:09.060 --> 00:02:14.000
  • Faith has nothing to do with sight.
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:16.160
  • We live by faith, not by sight.
  • 00:02:19.020 --> 00:02:22.070
  • In fact, the opposite of faith is not doubt, it's sight.
  • 00:02:22.080 --> 00:02:25.290
  • The fact that you have faith means
  • 00:02:28.260 --> 00:02:30.220
  • you pay no attention to what's in front of your face.
  • 00:02:30.230 --> 00:02:34.050
  • The Bible says the things that we see
  • 00:02:34.060 --> 00:02:36.100
  • were made by things that we cannot see.
  • 00:02:36.110 --> 00:02:38.190
  • And the things which we see are temporary,
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:40.230
  • and the things which are unseen are eternal.
  • 00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:43.010
  • That word that God promised you,
  • 00:02:43.020 --> 00:02:45.010
  • that thing is not going anywhere.
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:46.250
  • The Bible says heaven and earth will pass away,
  • 00:02:46.260 --> 00:02:49.000
  • but the word of God will always remain.
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:51.110
  • It is unchanging.
  • 00:02:51.120 --> 00:02:52.140
  • It will never pass away.
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:54.040
  • But, that situation in front of you,
  • 00:02:54.050 --> 00:02:55.250
  • if you can see it, it's got to come
  • 00:02:55.260 --> 00:02:58.050
  • and it's got to go.
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:59.210
  • It's got to come, I'm going to say that about four times,
  • 00:02:59.220 --> 00:03:01.290
  • and got to go.
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:03.050
  • It's got to come and it's got to go.
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:05.030
  • That thing in front of you is not terminal.
  • 00:03:05.040 --> 00:03:07.240
  • Your faith can move it.
  • 00:03:07.250 --> 00:03:09.040
  • Your faith can change it.
  • 00:03:09.050 --> 00:03:10.260
  • If you'll get the word of God in your heart
  • 00:03:10.270 --> 00:03:12.250
  • and speak it out of your mouth
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:14.150
  • you can tell that mountain to move
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:16.130
  • and it shall be done for you.
  • 00:03:16.140 --> 00:03:19.000
  • Is anybody hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:03:19.010 --> 00:03:20.220
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:03:20.230 --> 00:03:23.140
  • Peter looked at Jesus, Peter was in the boat,
  • 00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:26.180
  • Jesus was on the water.
  • 00:03:26.190 --> 00:03:28.110
  • There was an opportunity for the miraculous.
  • 00:03:28.120 --> 00:03:31.050
  • Jesus said Lord, if it is you, bid me to come.
  • 00:03:31.060 --> 00:03:34.160
  • Jesus said, come.
  • 00:03:34.170 --> 00:03:35.260
  • And Peter stepped outta the boat
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:39.230
  • and Peter did not walk on water.
  • 00:03:39.240 --> 00:03:41.240
  • Nobody's ever walked on water.
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:43.130
  • You can't walk on water.
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:44.280
  • Peter walked on words.
  • 00:03:44.290 --> 00:03:46.140
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:49.290
  • When Jesus said come, he stepped out
  • 00:03:50.000 --> 00:03:53.210
  • on that word and that word held him
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:55.130
  • on top of that water and as long
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:57.110
  • as he had that word deep down inside of him,
  • 00:03:57.120 --> 00:04:00.040
  • a miracle was taking place.
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:01.260
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:04.200
  • Then, the Bible says, then he saw
  • 00:04:05.250 --> 00:04:08.130
  • the wind and the waves and he began to sink.
  • 00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:13.260
  • Oh, that is exactly what I'm talkin' about.
  • 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:18.290
  • Put something in front of you that contradicts
  • 00:04:19.000 --> 00:04:21.130
  • what Jesus just said.
  • 00:04:21.140 --> 00:04:22.200
  • Jesus said come.
  • 00:04:22.210 --> 00:04:23.180
  • In other words, the wind and the waves don't matter.
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:26.250
  • If you gotta word you can walk on top of water,
  • 00:04:26.260 --> 00:04:29.240
  • walk on top of wind, walk on top of,
  • 00:04:29.250 --> 00:04:32.010
  • but what he saw talked him out of what he heard.
  • 00:04:33.220 --> 00:04:37.170
  • And it's where you put your focus
  • 00:04:37.180 --> 00:04:39.170
  • that will determine your destiny.
  • 00:04:39.180 --> 00:04:42.050
  • Do you focus on what you see
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:44.010
  • or do you focus on what he said?
  • 00:04:44.020 --> 00:04:46.200
  • If you focus on what he said you'll keep walking.
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:49.160
  • If you focus on what you see you'll start sinking.
  • 00:04:49.170 --> 00:04:52.190
  • (crowd clapping)
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:55.130
  • Am I preaching this thing all right?
  • 00:04:57.240 --> 00:04:59.230
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:02.160
  • Now, said men ought to always pray.
  • 00:05:04.120 --> 00:05:08.210
  • Prayer in its essence is divine persuasion.
  • 00:05:10.150 --> 00:05:13.260
  • You are trying to persuade heaven.
  • 00:05:17.260 --> 00:05:20.100
  • An influencer.
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:23.230
  • You are in the earth
  • 00:05:26.140 --> 00:05:27.230
  • and you are inserting yourself into spiritual things.
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:34.180
  • When you pray you have just gotten
  • 00:05:38.120 --> 00:05:41.170
  • out of your realm and entered another one.
  • 00:05:41.180 --> 00:05:43.260
  • That's a good thing because the Bible says
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:45.210
  • this one is subject to that one.
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:48.030
  • So, if you want to change it in this one,
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:50.080
  • go to its parent.
  • 00:05:50.090 --> 00:05:51.200
  • The parent realm is the spirit realm.
  • 00:05:53.120 --> 00:05:55.140
  • This is the subject realm.
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:57.240
  • So many times if we wanna change something
  • 00:05:58.290 --> 00:06:01.160
  • we try to get our hands on it.
  • 00:06:01.170 --> 00:06:03.080
  • You got to pray about it.
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:05.050
  • Because if you can persuade heaven to move
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:07.100
  • and to shift, then automatically the thing
  • 00:06:07.110 --> 00:06:10.040
  • that is subject to it will move also.
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:12.110
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:06:12.120 --> 00:06:14.030
  • (laughing)
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:16.110
  • Somebody bring this man a Coca Cola, he is preaching.
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:20.040
  • Ah, I love this.
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:23.100
  • All right, here's where it shifts.
  • 00:06:24.250 --> 00:06:26.160
  • I understand Pastor Bernal was very, very skilled
  • 00:06:27.280 --> 00:06:32.230
  • in his teaching on spiritual warfare.
  • 00:06:34.070 --> 00:06:37.110
  • I want to make sure you understand something.
  • 00:06:39.050 --> 00:06:40.100
  • I'm not contradicting him.
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:41.250
  • There is spiritual warfare, but I need to explain it.
  • 00:06:41.260 --> 00:06:44.270
  • This woman has been done wrong.
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:48.140
  • This woman has suffered some type of loss
  • 00:06:48.150 --> 00:06:51.260
  • because the word basically, she's saying vindicate me
  • 00:06:51.270 --> 00:06:56.070
  • from my enemy, avenge me.
  • 00:06:56.080 --> 00:06:59.150
  • That's strong language.
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:01.000
  • But, when she wants her enemy to pay she does not
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:07.100
  • go to the battlefield.
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:09.000
  • She goes to the courtroom.
  • 00:07:10.080 --> 00:07:11.220
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:15.130
  • Jesus is trying to help us understand
  • 00:07:17.170 --> 00:07:20.160
  • prayer is all about legalities.
  • 00:07:21.130 --> 00:07:24.120
  • Most of us do not understand legalities
  • 00:07:27.210 --> 00:07:30.070
  • because most of us have never been in a kingdom.
  • 00:07:30.080 --> 00:07:33.000
  • We live in a nation where you are compelled
  • 00:07:35.130 --> 00:07:38.200
  • to voice your opinion and your independence.
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:42.170
  • In a kingdom, you don't have an opinion.
  • 00:07:42.180 --> 00:07:44.180
  • You don't vote on Jesus.
  • 00:07:46.240 --> 00:07:48.120
  • In a kingdom there is only the king's opinion
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:54.130
  • and if you have a great king, the Bible says,
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:56.230
  • the people are happy.
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:07:57.270
  • There is no greater king than your king
  • 00:07:59.030 --> 00:08:01.130
  • because he's only there for your success.
  • 00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:03.170
  • In a kingdom there are laws that are decreed
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:08.190
  • the moment the king has spoken on.
  • 00:08:08.200 --> 00:08:10.140
  • Everything written in that word is law.
  • 00:08:10.150 --> 00:08:13.070
  • It's the law of God.
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:14.220
  • It's not laws by which are religious in salvation.
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:18.000
  • They are laws by which they govern life.
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:21.030
  • And there's so many times we've been taught
  • 00:08:23.030 --> 00:08:25.040
  • to do warfare.
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:26.020
  • I need you to just listen to me.
  • 00:08:26.030 --> 00:08:27.020
  • I'm going to get into some stuff.
  • 00:08:27.030 --> 00:08:29.000
  • We've been taught that we feel like
  • 00:08:29.010 --> 00:08:32.070
  • the enemy's come in and made us sick
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:34.130
  • or the enemy, we lost our job and we're
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:36.090
  • going to get mad at the enemy and fight the devil
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:38.230
  • and point at the devil and shout
  • 00:08:38.240 --> 00:08:40.080
  • at the devil and tell the devil this
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:41.210
  • and tell him to get outta my house
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:43.020
  • and tell him I changed my mind
  • 00:08:43.030 --> 00:08:44.170
  • and leave my kids alone.
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:46.030
  • This woman never even spoke to him.
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:53.180
  • She spoke to the judge.
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:08:58.200
  • She don't need a sword.
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:04.060
  • She don't need a weapon.
  • 00:09:04.070 --> 00:09:05.170
  • All she need is a verdict.
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:06.290
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:09:08.010 --> 00:09:10.240
  • You don't have the same protocols in a courtroom
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:17.140
  • that you have on a battlefield.
  • 00:09:17.150 --> 00:09:19.020
  • And we've misunderstood our warfare.
  • 00:09:21.030 --> 00:09:23.220
  • You've gotta understand.
  • 00:09:25.050 --> 00:09:26.100
  • Have you noticed that I've not tried
  • 00:09:26.110 --> 00:09:27.200
  • to get you to sign anything saying
  • 00:09:27.210 --> 00:09:29.080
  • you're a church member?
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.130
  • Because in the kingdom there are not church members.
  • 00:09:31.250 --> 00:09:34.040
  • A kingdom doesn't have membership, it has citizens.
  • 00:09:34.050 --> 00:09:37.040
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:09:37.050 --> 00:09:39.260
  • You know when you're born in a country
  • 00:09:43.000 --> 00:09:44.230
  • you're automatically a citizen of that country.
  • 00:09:44.240 --> 00:09:47.020
  • Why do you think Jesus, the first thing
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:48.220
  • that come out his mouth said you must be born again.
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:51.100
  • (crowd cheering and clapping)
  • 00:09:52.070 --> 00:09:56.000
  • The Bible says when you've been born again
  • 00:10:00.130 --> 00:10:02.150
  • that your citizenship is now in heaven.
  • 00:10:02.160 --> 00:10:04.250
  • You are literally from another country.
  • 00:10:07.060 --> 00:10:09.080
  • The Bible says you're an ambassador in the earth
  • 00:10:11.010 --> 00:10:13.200
  • and you're a citizen of heaven.
  • 00:10:13.210 --> 00:10:15.010
  • This is crazy.
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:16.010
  • Meaning, a citizen has rights and privileges
  • 00:10:17.080 --> 00:10:19.270
  • in the land in which he dwells.
  • 00:10:19.280 --> 00:10:21.210
  • So, I get to assert myself in heaven
  • 00:10:22.250 --> 00:10:25.210
  • if I know my rights and privileges.
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:28.020
  • That's called the will of God.
  • 00:10:28.030 --> 00:10:29.290
  • If I know what his will is I get to go
  • 00:10:30.000 --> 00:10:32.270
  • before the judge and assert my rights
  • 00:10:32.280 --> 00:10:35.010
  • and privileges as a citizen by being born in that country.
  • 00:10:35.020 --> 00:10:38.260
  • Y'all ain't saying nothing.
  • 00:10:38.270 --> 00:10:40.060
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:10:40.070 --> 00:10:42.290
  • Now, I'm an ambassador in the earth.
  • 00:10:47.020 --> 00:10:49.220
  • So, I don't represent me anymore.
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:52.070
  • An ambassador does not represent himself.
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:56.150
  • If we send an ambassador to the UN he don't sit back
  • 00:10:56.160 --> 00:10:59.280
  • in a chair and say, let me tell y'all what I been thinking.
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:03.110
  • He says this is the opinion of my government.
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:06.010
  • So, an ambassador only represents the opinion
  • 00:11:08.090 --> 00:11:11.130
  • of his government.
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:12.260
  • So when somebody's quarreling, you don't stick yourself
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:15.030
  • in there and say, let me give you my two cents worth.
  • 00:11:15.040 --> 00:11:17.040
  • You only represent the opinion of the government
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:19.170
  • that sent your here.
  • 00:11:19.180 --> 00:11:21.110
  • In your house you represent the government of heaven.
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:24.080
  • In a fight you represent the government of heaven.
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:26.260
  • On first shift, second shift, third shift,
  • 00:11:26.270 --> 00:11:28.290
  • you represent the government of heaven.
  • 00:11:29.000 --> 00:11:30.230
  • You are a citizen of heaven and you are
  • 00:11:30.240 --> 00:11:32.230
  • an ambassador here, so you got to go
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:35.110
  • in to that argument saying what would heaven say?
  • 00:11:35.120 --> 00:11:38.040
  • You got to go in to that marriage saying
  • 00:11:38.050 --> 00:11:40.020
  • what would heaven do?
  • 00:11:40.030 --> 00:11:41.010
  • Y'all ain't saying nothing.
  • 00:11:41.020 --> 00:11:42.110
  • You got to go into the problem saying
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:44.140
  • what would heaven do?
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:45.200
  • I am representing heaven.
  • 00:11:45.210 --> 00:11:47.130
  • I'm not representing Ron.
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:49.250
  • Do you see how this works?
  • 00:11:49.260 --> 00:11:51.010
  • This is a king and a kingdom.
  • 00:11:51.020 --> 00:11:52.260
  • In a kingdom, we got spiritual warfare,
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:56.140
  • we gotta fight the devil.
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:57.200
  • In a kingdom the citizens don't fight.
  • 00:11:57.210 --> 00:11:59.260
  • That's why the Bible says, the battle is the Lord's.
  • 00:12:02.220 --> 00:12:05.100
  • The battle belongs to the king and the military.
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:10.190
  • Well, if I don't fight, who's the military?
  • 00:12:10.200 --> 00:12:12.180
  • He shall give his angels charge over thee
  • 00:12:12.190 --> 00:12:15.090
  • and they shall bear you up in their wings
  • 00:12:15.100 --> 00:12:17.100
  • so you do not lash your foot against.
  • 00:12:17.110 --> 00:12:19.130
  • I'm about to run all over this building.
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:21.210
  • You got angels fighting battles you can't fight.
  • 00:12:21.220 --> 00:12:24.140
  • You got, the enemy tried to kill you 10 times
  • 00:12:24.150 --> 00:12:27.050
  • on the way to church this morning, but angels
  • 00:12:27.060 --> 00:12:29.100
  • carried you all the way here.
  • 00:12:29.110 --> 00:12:31.040
  • It wasn't your driving, it was angels.
  • 00:12:31.050 --> 00:12:33.110

  • It was meant to operate just like heaven
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:48.110
  • and God put something on earth that was just like him
  • 00:12:48.120 --> 00:12:52.130
  • to govern the earth the way that he governs the heavens.

  • and he moves the whole conversation
  • 00:13:45.220 --> 00:13:48.090
  • about prayer to a courtroom.
  • 00:13:48.100 --> 00:13:49.260
  • A courtroom has protocols.
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:53.270
  • We totally ignore those protocols and wonder
  • 00:13:55.250 --> 00:13:59.230
  • why prayers don't get answered.
  • 00:13:59.240 --> 00:14:01.190
  • You don't walk in a courtroom and just start
  • 00:14:01.200 --> 00:14:03.230
  • speaking your mind to a judge.
  • 00:14:03.240 --> 00:14:05.240
  • (crowd mumbling)
  • 00:14:05.250 --> 00:14:08.180
  • God is the righteous judge, the Bible calls him,
  • 00:14:11.190 --> 00:14:14.080
  • the only wise God and righteous judge,
  • 00:14:14.090 --> 00:14:17.070
  • I Timothy, Chapter Three or Four, I think it is.
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:19.090
  • That's why God has forbidden, forbidden us
  • 00:14:20.120 --> 00:14:23.140
  • to judge one another, because he's the only one
  • 00:14:23.150 --> 00:14:26.170
  • with all of our information.
  • 00:14:26.180 --> 00:14:28.030
  • So, we judge what we see people do,
  • 00:14:29.120 --> 00:14:32.070
  • but we don't know everything that factored
  • 00:14:32.080 --> 00:14:34.170
  • into that event that caused them to behave that way.
  • 00:14:34.180 --> 00:14:37.170
  • So, we judge their conduct and we do not know the person.
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:40.290
  • Jesus says, I know not just what they did,
  • 00:14:42.080 --> 00:14:44.240
  • but I know why they did it and I know how
  • 00:14:44.250 --> 00:14:47.070
  • they were raised and I know when they got raped
  • 00:14:47.080 --> 00:14:49.210
  • and I know when they got abused and I know
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:51.200
  • when they got molested and I know how they ended up
  • 00:14:51.210 --> 00:14:53.260
  • with that fellow and I know what neighborhood
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:55.270
  • they came from and I know why they made that decision.
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:58.160
  • I can judge 'them, you can't judge them.
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:15:00.230
  • So, we've got God, the only judge.
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:05.050
  • He says, judge not that you be not judged,
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:07.040
  • for in the same measure you use,
  • 00:15:07.050 --> 00:15:09.050
  • be careful, because some of us judge
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:12.170
  • and we don't want it to come back on us
  • 00:15:12.180 --> 00:15:14.020
  • the way we dish it out.
  • 00:15:14.030 --> 00:15:15.080
  • So, God is the judge.
  • 00:15:18.020 --> 00:15:19.080
  • This woman enters the courtroom.
  • 00:15:19.090 --> 00:15:20.270
  • The Bible says you enter the gates with thanksgiving,
  • 00:15:20.280 --> 00:15:22.280
  • you enter courts with praise.
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:25.060
  • You will never get God into your problem
  • 00:15:25.070 --> 00:15:28.140
  • dishin' out complaints.
  • 00:15:28.150 --> 00:15:30.030
  • God does not inhabit complaints.
  • 00:15:31.080 --> 00:15:33.090
  • He inhabits praise.
  • 00:15:33.100 --> 00:15:35.140
  • God will not even come in your presence
  • 00:15:35.150 --> 00:15:37.190
  • with complaining spirit.
  • 00:15:37.200 --> 00:15:39.030
  • In fact, he won't even do it if you've got
  • 00:15:40.180 --> 00:15:42.050
  • a complaining mind.
  • 00:15:42.060 --> 00:15:43.110
  • He said, don't even think things like that.
  • 00:15:43.120 --> 00:15:44.290
  • He says, whatever's true, whatever's praiseworthy,
  • 00:15:45.000 --> 00:15:47.120
  • whatever's pure, whatever's noble, think on these things.
  • 00:15:47.130 --> 00:15:50.140
  • He says, you come to me with good thoughts
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:52.180
  • and he said, come to me with a good attitude,
  • 00:15:52.190 --> 00:15:54.170
  • oh come on, somebody.
  • 00:15:54.180 --> 00:15:55.230
  • And he says, you come to me praising
  • 00:15:55.240 --> 00:15:57.080
  • because I don't care how bad it is at the moment,
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:15:59.180
  • there's something he's done for you
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:01.140
  • that you can praise him for.
  • 00:16:01.150 --> 00:16:02.260
  • If nothing else, say I thank you that I got up
  • 00:16:02.270 --> 00:16:05.050
  • and there was air in my lungs
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:07.270
  • and God I give you praise.
  • 00:16:07.280 --> 00:16:09.120
  • All hell's breaking loose, but I'm going to praise you
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:11.290
  • that I'm still breathing.
  • 00:16:12.000 --> 00:16:14.230
  • (crowd cheering and clapping)
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:17.070
  • You just don't roll up in God's face any old way.
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:19.230
  • You got to understand a king, a kingdom, a courtroom.
  • 00:16:19.240 --> 00:16:23.110
  • The Bible talks about the judge.
  • 00:16:25.260 --> 00:16:28.000
  • God, the Bible talks about Jesus, the only mediator
  • 00:16:28.010 --> 00:16:31.200
  • between God and man.
  • 00:16:31.210 --> 00:16:33.190
  • A mediator means lawyer and go-between.
  • 00:16:33.200 --> 00:16:36.170
  • So, Jesus is your defense.
  • 00:16:36.180 --> 00:16:38.250
  • And he's a good lawyer.
  • 00:16:41.140 --> 00:16:42.280
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:16:42.290 --> 00:16:45.020
  • The Bible talks about a great cloud of witnesses.
  • 00:16:45.030 --> 00:16:48.200
  • The Bible talks about the testimony of the blood.
  • 00:16:48.210 --> 00:16:51.250
  • A judge, a defendant, witnesses, testimonies.
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:59.240
  • The Bible says that Satan is the accuser.
  • 00:17:01.060 --> 00:17:03.190
  • The word in the Greek means prosecutor.
  • 00:17:03.200 --> 00:17:05.220
  • You have a prosecuting attorney and you have a defendant
  • 00:17:07.020 --> 00:17:09.160
  • before a judge.
  • 00:17:09.170 --> 00:17:10.210
  • The whole New Testament is a courtroom setting.
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:16.260
  • And we have to pray accordingly, okay.
  • 00:17:21.140 --> 00:17:25.120
  • Now, I've got two words I'm going to deal with and that's all
  • 00:17:29.100 --> 00:17:31.170
  • I got time with today.

  • These do not have opening and closing spots.
  • 00:17:33.000 --> 00:17:35.140
  • I just have, I'm studying and studying and studying
  • 00:17:35.150 --> 00:17:38.100
  • and I have to find a place where I can leave
  • 00:17:38.110 --> 00:17:40.210
  • you hanging until the next week and I do it to be mean,
  • 00:17:40.220 --> 00:17:43.190
  • to get you back in here.
  • 00:17:43.200 --> 00:17:44.280
  • (crowd laughing)
  • 00:17:44.290 --> 00:17:46.030
  • The 49ers play on Monday night next week,
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:49.290
  • so I'm looking for all of you and your children
  • 00:17:51.040 --> 00:17:53.220
  • to be here.
  • 00:17:53.230 --> 00:17:55.170
  • (crowd clapping)
  • 00:17:55.180 --> 00:17:58.100
  • He breaks it down.
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:01.040
  • The woman says, avenge me.
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:04.040
  • Judge, judges determine outcomes.
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:07.110
  • The woman says avenge.
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:11.020
  • The word avenge, I love this, says make this right.
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:16.030
  • In other words, she is acknowledging
  • 00:18:19.050 --> 00:18:22.180
  • this is not right.
  • 00:18:22.190 --> 00:18:24.200
  • When God has promised you something in the word
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:28.140
  • and you are experiencing the opposite,
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:30.290
  • you have the right to enter the courtroom of heaven
  • 00:18:31.000 --> 00:18:36.000
  • and ask the righteous judge to make this right.
  • 00:18:37.120 --> 00:18:39.220
  • When God has said that he is your healer,
  • 00:18:39.230 --> 00:18:42.230
  • but they tell you that that lump is growing
  • 00:18:42.240 --> 00:18:45.020
  • in your breast, you have the right
  • 00:18:45.030 --> 00:18:47.240
  • to go before God, your righteous judge,
  • 00:18:47.250 --> 00:18:50.130
  • and say, I'm asking you to make this right.
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:53.100
  • When God says that your children are a heritage
  • 00:18:53.110 --> 00:18:56.070
  • from the Lord and you got two of them out there
  • 00:18:56.080 --> 00:18:58.190
  • addicted somewhere and they didn't even come home
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:00.190
  • last night, you have the right to go
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:03.080
  • into the courtroom of heaven and say, God,
  • 00:19:03.090 --> 00:19:06.000
  • you gave me a promise about my children
  • 00:19:06.010 --> 00:19:08.170
  • and I'm asking you to avenge my adversary
  • 00:19:08.180 --> 00:19:11.100
  • and make this right.
  • 00:19:11.110 --> 00:19:12.250
  • If you stayed up all night last night with anxiety
  • 00:19:12.260 --> 00:19:15.120
  • and insomnia and your God said he promised you peace,
  • 00:19:15.130 --> 00:19:18.270
  • you have the right to go in the courtroom
  • 00:19:18.280 --> 00:19:21.170
  • and say, I'm asking you to avenge me
  • 00:19:21.180 --> 00:19:24.120
  • and I'm asking you to make this right.
  • 00:19:24.130 --> 00:19:26.120
  • You've got to know what God promised you
  • 00:19:26.130 --> 00:19:29.020
  • or you ain't going to know what's right.
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:30.290
  • And if you know what's right you know what ain't right
  • 00:19:31.000 --> 00:19:33.220
  • and when you know what ain't right you've got
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:35.210
  • the power to go to God and say make it right.
  • 00:19:35.220 --> 00:19:38.100
  • Oh, somebody who wants God to make it right shout amen.
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:42.080
  • - [Crowd] Amen.
  • 00:19:42.090 --> 00:19:43.160
  • - Oh, this is so good.
  • 00:19:45.000 --> 00:19:47.050
  • One more thing, one more thing.
  • 00:19:49.060 --> 00:19:50.110
  • Give me five minutes.
  • 00:19:50.120 --> 00:19:51.060
  • One more thing.
  • 00:19:51.070 --> 00:19:52.140
  • Y'all sit down, y'all sit down, y'all sit.
  • 00:19:52.150 --> 00:19:53.120
  • One more thing.
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:54.070
  • Adversary, the word adversary means an opponent of the law.
  • 00:19:57.090 --> 00:20:02.010
  • In other words, an accuser or a prosecutor,
  • 00:20:03.040 --> 00:20:07.180
  • one who takes the law and uses it against you.
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:12.190
  • Ah.
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:15.210
  • Satan knows the word.
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:21.250
  • He quoted it to the author, Jesus.
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:26.070
  • Jesus is the author of the book
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:29.120
  • and when Jesus was in the wilderness
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:33.000
  • bein' tempted Satan started quoting
  • 00:20:33.010 --> 00:20:35.190
  • his own scripture back to him.
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:37.080
  • That's funny.
  • 00:20:39.260 --> 00:20:40.210
  • So, Satan, if you look at the book of Job,
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:48.080
  • go read Job, Chapter One tonight.
  • 00:20:49.180 --> 00:20:52.050
  • Whenever I don't have the time to read it, I like
  • 00:20:52.060 --> 00:20:54.100
  • you go read it yourself.
  • 00:20:54.110 --> 00:20:56.010
  • Job, Chapter One, you say, how can such evil
  • 00:20:56.020 --> 00:20:59.100
  • be in the presence of such holiness?
  • 00:20:59.110 --> 00:21:00.280
  • But somehow we learn from Job, Chapter One
  • 00:21:00.290 --> 00:21:04.090
  • that Satan is accountable to God.
  • 00:21:04.100 --> 00:21:07.100
  • And God will occasionally call him in,
  • 00:21:09.070 --> 00:21:12.210
  • and in Job, Chapter One, we have the narrative there
  • 00:21:14.240 --> 00:21:17.200
  • where God is holding Satan accountable,
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:19.120
  • said where have you been?
  • 00:21:19.130 --> 00:21:21.080
  • And Satan's answer was, roaming to and fro,
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:25.000
  • back and forth.
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:27.090
  • Okay, roaming back and forth.
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:31.040
  • Now, God said, have you considered my servant, Job?
  • 00:21:31.050 --> 00:21:35.240
  • Can you believe God brought him up?
  • 00:21:37.010 --> 00:21:38.150
  • Job's like, wait a minute.
  • 00:21:38.160 --> 00:21:39.250
  • Y'all go ahead and talk about this.
  • 00:21:41.060 --> 00:21:42.240
  • I don't want to be no part of this.
  • 00:21:42.250 --> 00:21:44.130
  • (crowd laughing)
  • 00:21:44.140 --> 00:21:47.230
  • Have you considered my servant, Job?
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:49.150
  • Satan said, yes I have, but you've got
  • 00:21:49.160 --> 00:21:51.100
  • that thing around him.
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:52.130
  • You've got that hedge, that force field.
  • 00:21:53.240 --> 00:21:55.150
  • Every time I get up on it I get tasered.
  • 00:21:55.160 --> 00:21:57.150
  • That's Ron's translation.
  • 00:21:59.120 --> 00:22:00.190
  • That's the way I like to think about it.
  • 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:02.160
  • The word, to and fro, has the connotation to it that he
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:07.170
  • seeks all day to gather information.
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:11.210
  • So, the enemy studies your life
  • 00:22:14.000 --> 00:22:16.120
  • and as a prosecutor he enters the courtroom
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:21.070
  • and tells you that there's no evidence
  • 00:22:22.120 --> 00:22:24.140
  • of this in your life.
  • 00:22:24.150 --> 00:22:25.250
  • So, he takes God's own word and tries
  • 00:22:29.080 --> 00:22:32.010
  • to prosecute you with it.
  • 00:22:32.020 --> 00:22:33.150
  • The Bible says you were born of the word
  • 00:22:35.090 --> 00:22:38.040
  • in I Peter 1:23.
  • 00:22:38.050 --> 00:22:39.200
  • The Bible says you were born of God in John, Chapter One.
  • 00:22:39.210 --> 00:22:42.070
  • So, how can you be born of God
  • 00:22:42.080 --> 00:22:43.290
  • and born of the word, but there's
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:45.090
  • no evidence of it?
  • 00:22:45.100 --> 00:22:46.120
  • So, he stands in the courtroom and the Bible calls him
  • 00:22:48.170 --> 00:22:50.280
  • the accuser of the brethren.
  • 00:22:50.290 --> 00:22:52.100
  • We are the brothers in Christ and he stands
  • 00:22:52.110 --> 00:22:55.140
  • before God, the Bible says, and accuses day and night.
  • 00:22:55.150 --> 00:22:59.120
  • He will not shut up hurling accusations at you,
  • 00:22:59.130 --> 00:23:02.200
  • saying, well, you said for them to love their enemies.
  • 00:23:02.210 --> 00:23:05.050
  • But, I'm going to tell you right now
  • 00:23:05.060 --> 00:23:06.120
  • there's hatred all in their heart.
  • 00:23:06.130 --> 00:23:07.210
  • And you told them to forgive that they will be forgiven.
  • 00:23:09.050 --> 00:23:10.260
  • I'm going to tell you, I didn't find
  • 00:23:10.270 --> 00:23:11.240
  • any forgiveness anywhere.
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:14.010
  • You told them to watch their tongue,
  • 00:23:14.020 --> 00:23:15.150
  • but I'm gonna tell you, they're tongue's
  • 00:23:15.160 --> 00:23:16.160
  • about as loose as a lizard.
  • 00:23:16.170 --> 00:23:17.240
  • Every time I heard 'em, every time they got mad.
  • 00:23:17.250 --> 00:23:20.160
  • So, he stands before God and takes the word of God
  • 00:23:20.170 --> 00:23:24.150
  • and says, I see no evidence, judge.
  • 00:23:24.160 --> 00:23:27.010
  • But, you have a defense
  • 00:23:30.140 --> 00:23:31.280
  • and the defense is just sitting there
  • 00:23:33.260 --> 00:23:35.160
  • tapping his toes saying, hurry up
  • 00:23:35.170 --> 00:23:37.000
  • and get this over with.
  • 00:23:37.010 --> 00:23:38.060
  • And guess what about that defense.
  • 00:23:39.090 --> 00:23:41.140
  • I'm going to teach you about it next week.
  • 00:23:41.150 --> 00:23:43.030
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:23:43.040 --> 00:23:44.140
  • (crowd cheering)
  • 00:23:44.150 --> 00:23:47.290
  • Turn to three people and say,
  • 00:23:48.000 --> 00:23:49.000
  • don't you miss next week,
  • 00:23:49.010 --> 00:23:50.140
  • tell them, don't you miss next week.
  • 00:23:50.150 --> 00:23:51.200
  • - [Crowd] Don't you miss next week.
  • 00:23:51.210 --> 00:23:52.270
  • Stand on your feet all over this building.
  • 00:23:52.280 --> 00:23:54.130
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:23:55.250 --> 00:23:58.130
  • - I am having so much fun, too much fun
  • 00:24:26.150 --> 00:24:29.230
  • preaching this series.
  • 00:24:29.240 --> 00:24:31.010
  • I'm learning so much and I hope that you are too.
  • 00:24:31.020 --> 00:24:33.110
  • I just wanna take a minute to just talk
  • 00:24:33.120 --> 00:24:35.050
  • to the wonderful people out there.
  • 00:24:35.060 --> 00:24:37.000
  • If you would don't click us off this quick.
  • 00:24:37.010 --> 00:24:39.020
  • Why?
  • 00:24:39.030 --> 00:24:40.150
  • Because what I'm getting ready to talk to you about is
  • 00:24:40.160 --> 00:24:41.130
  • how we get to do what we do.
  • 00:24:41.140 --> 00:24:42.280
  • It's not the shouting,
  • 00:24:42.290 --> 00:24:44.220
  • it's not the clapping,
  • 00:24:44.230 --> 00:24:45.180
  • it's not the singing
  • 00:24:45.190 --> 00:24:46.260
  • and it's not the preaching that allows us
  • 00:24:46.270 --> 00:24:48.160
  • to stay on air.
  • 00:24:48.170 --> 00:24:50.140
  • It's the fact that people care.
  • 00:24:50.150 --> 00:24:52.210
  • It's that people care enough to pray,
  • 00:24:52.220 --> 00:24:54.200
  • people care enough to intercede,
  • 00:24:54.210 --> 00:24:56.170
  • people care enough to call in,
  • 00:24:56.180 --> 00:24:58.200
  • people care enough to share praise reports,
  • 00:24:58.210 --> 00:25:00.140
  • prayer requests and people care enough to give.
  • 00:25:00.150 --> 00:25:02.230
  • And you have been those people
  • 00:25:02.240 --> 00:25:04.030
  • and I just wanna tell you,
  • 00:25:04.040 --> 00:25:05.180
  • look you straight in the eye through these cameras
  • 00:25:05.190 --> 00:25:07.110
  • and tell you I am so grateful that you
  • 00:25:07.120 --> 00:25:11.140
  • believed in us enough that you would invest and sow seed.
  • 00:25:11.150 --> 00:25:15.080
  • I believe every seed has to find good ground
  • 00:25:15.090 --> 00:25:17.230
  • or you can waste the seed.
  • 00:25:17.240 --> 00:25:19.120
  • We try our best to be fertile ground, good ground
  • 00:25:19.130 --> 00:25:22.160
  • that can produce 30, 60, 100-fold return
  • 00:25:22.170 --> 00:25:25.080
  • back into your life.
  • 00:25:25.090 --> 00:25:26.140
  • I'm asking you would you help us?
  • 00:25:26.150 --> 00:25:28.000
  • Those of you that have been, I'm asking you to continue.
  • 00:25:28.010 --> 00:25:30.220
  • We've got more vision than we've ever had.
  • 00:25:30.230 --> 00:25:32.190
  • We've got more before us than we ever have.
  • 00:25:32.200 --> 00:25:34.100
  • I'm so excited about our translation equipment
  • 00:25:34.110 --> 00:25:37.030
  • and translators who have now come in.
  • 00:25:37.040 --> 00:25:39.150
  • Now we're in three languages.
  • 00:25:39.160 --> 00:25:41.080
  • We are sending it out to China in Chinese.
  • 00:25:41.090 --> 00:25:44.060
  • We're sending it out all over Spanish speaking
  • 00:25:44.070 --> 00:25:46.270
  • nations in Spanish.
  • 00:25:46.280 --> 00:25:48.150
  • Of course, we're speaking it in English
  • 00:25:48.160 --> 00:25:49.260
  • and my next one I want to do is Russian
  • 00:25:49.270 --> 00:25:51.290
  • and we believe it can go into these areas
  • 00:25:52.000 --> 00:25:54.000
  • of the world to people who have never
  • 00:25:54.010 --> 00:25:55.060
  • heard the gospel and even right here
  • 00:25:55.070 --> 00:25:56.270
  • in the Silicon Valley, which is a melting pot,
  • 00:25:56.280 --> 00:25:59.050
  • we get this message of the kingdom
  • 00:25:59.060 --> 00:26:01.120
  • into people's known language.
  • 00:26:01.130 --> 00:26:03.050
  • I need your help.
  • 00:26:03.060 --> 00:26:04.120
  • We believe God's doing something big here.
