  • IS THERE A LOT OF
  • 00:00:27.060 --> 00:00:27.260
  • DECISIONS YOU MAKE
  • 00:00:27.260 --> 00:00:29.010
  • THAT YOU CAN'T BE LIKE,
  • 00:00:29.010 --> 00:00:30.060
  • "OH, 1 SAMUEL 2:3.
  • 00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:32.110
  • THERE IT IS.
  • 00:00:32.110 --> 00:00:33.120
  • 'BUY THE VOLVO.'
  • 00:00:33.120 --> 00:00:35.080

  • RIGHT?
  • 00:00:36.220 --> 00:00:37.060

  • 00:00:37.060 --> 00:00:39.120
  • I DON'T BEGIN WITH,
  • 00:00:39.120 --> 00:00:40.130
  • WILL THIS MAKE ME HAPPY?
  • 00:00:40.130 --> 00:00:41.290
  • AND I DON'T BEGIN
  • 00:00:41.290 --> 00:00:42.240
  • AT THE PLACE OF,
  • 00:00:42.240 --> 00:00:43.200
  • DOES THIS FEEL GOOD TO ME?
  • 00:00:43.200 --> 00:00:45.070
  • I BEGIN --
  • 00:00:45.070 --> 00:00:45.280
  • MY STARTING POINT IS,
  • 00:00:45.280 --> 00:00:47.150
  • DOES THIS AGREE WITH
  • 00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:49.070
  • THE WORD OF GOD?

  • AFTER YOU'VE GONE
  • 00:00:57.280 --> 00:00:58.180
  • THROUGH THE GRID,
  • 00:00:58.180 --> 00:00:59.270
  • THE LAST QUESTION YOU ASK IS
  • 00:00:59.270 --> 00:01:01.240
  • DO I FEEL SETTLED ABOUT THIS?
  • 00:01:01.240 --> 00:01:04.140
  • DO YOU NOTICE THAT
  • 00:01:04.140 --> 00:01:05.080
  • YOU DON'T START WITH YOU?

  • A MESSAGE TO YOU,

  • I REALLY WANNA
  • 00:01:37.160 --> 00:01:37.280
  • TEACH THIS TO YOU,
  • 00:01:37.280 --> 00:01:39.020
  • ON HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S GOD?
  • 00:01:39.020 --> 00:01:41.070

  • TO TEACH YOU
  • 00:01:43.180 --> 00:01:44.100
  • HOW YOU KNOW IT'S GOD
  • 00:01:44.100 --> 00:01:46.000
  • AND NOT BAD PIZZA,
  • 00:01:46.000 --> 00:01:47.020
  • HOW YOU KNOW IT'S GOD,
  • 00:01:47.020 --> 00:01:48.110
  • YOU KNOW,
  • 00:01:48.110 --> 00:01:49.050
  • WHEN PEOPLE COME UP TO YOU.
  • 00:01:49.050 --> 00:01:50.000
  • MAYBE SOME OF YOU FEEL LIKE,
  • 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:50.280
  • "I FEEL LIKE
  • 00:01:50.280 --> 00:01:51.140
  • GOD'S TOLD ME SOMETHING."
  • 00:01:51.140 --> 00:01:52.050
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S GOD?
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:53.260
  • DON'T TAKE EVERYTHING
  • 00:01:53.260 --> 00:01:54.110
  • EVERYBODY SAYS.
  • 00:01:54.110 --> 00:01:55.040
  • YOU GOTTA -- YOU KNOW,
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:56.220
  • THERE'S SOME CRAZY PEOPLE
  • 00:01:56.220 --> 00:01:59.000
  • THAT ADD 'GOD'
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:00.040
  • TO THE END OF SENTENCES,
  • 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:01.250
  • AND THEY'RE JUST CRAZY.
  • 00:02:01.250 --> 00:02:02.200
  • THEY'RE CRAY-CRAY.
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:03.150
  • AND SO -- COME ON, SOMEBODY.
  • 00:02:03.150 --> 00:02:04.260
  • ANYBODY -- YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:02:04.260 --> 00:02:06.060
  • IF IT'S GOD OR NOT.
  • 00:02:07.070 --> 00:02:10.070
  • SO HOW DO I KNOW IT'S GOD?
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:12.250
  • AND I'LL BE REAL HONEST.
  • 00:02:12.250 --> 00:02:13.180
  • SOMETIMES,
  • 00:02:13.180 --> 00:02:14.210
  • DISCERNING OR KNOWING
  • 00:02:14.210 --> 00:02:17.060
  • IF IT'S GOD OR NOT
  • 00:02:17.060 --> 00:02:18.010
  • CAN BE DIFFICULT.
  • 00:02:18.010 --> 00:02:20.030
  • BUT THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:21.240
  • WE CAN KNOW THAT,
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:23.170
  • AND IT ALSO TELLS US THAT
  • 00:02:23.170 --> 00:02:24.190
  • NOT EVERYTHING
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:25.060
  • IS THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:02:25.060 --> 00:02:27.050
  • IF YOU GREW UP
  • 00:02:27.050 --> 00:02:27.220
  • AROUND CHURCH AT ALL,
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:28.240
  • YOU MAY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:02:28.240 --> 00:02:29.180
  • IN SOME EXPERIENCES
  • 00:02:29.180 --> 00:02:30.060
  • WHERE PEOPLE ARE LIKE,
  • 00:02:30.060 --> 00:02:31.130
  • "THE LORD TOLD ME
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:32.100
  • TO TELL YOU..."
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:35.270
  • AND THERE ARE TIMES WHERE
  • 00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:36.160
  • THAT IS LEGITIMATE.
  • 00:02:36.160 --> 00:02:38.180
  • I'VE HAD GOD
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:39.230
  • DROP SOMETHING IN MY HEART,
  • 00:02:39.230 --> 00:02:41.190
  • I'VE GONE TO SOMEONE, AND SAID,
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:44.090
  • "HEY, I REALLY FEEL LIKE
  • 00:02:44.090 --> 00:02:45.060
  • GOD TOLD ME TO TELL YOU THIS."
  • 00:02:45.060 --> 00:02:47.170
  • AND THEY BREAK DOWN, WEEPING.
  • 00:02:47.170 --> 00:02:49.270
  • AND SAY, "I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:49.270 --> 00:02:50.160
  • HOW YOU KNEW,
  • 00:02:50.160 --> 00:02:51.150
  • BUT THAT'S EXACTLY
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:52.020
  • WHAT I NEEDED TO HEAR."
  • 00:02:52.020 --> 00:02:53.030
  • IT'S 'CAUSE GOD DOES
  • 00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:54.040
  • SPEAK IN THAT WAY.
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:57.100
  • BUT THERE ARE TIMES
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:02:58.070
  • WHERE PEOPLE GET IT WRONG.
  • 00:02:58.090 --> 00:03:01.110
  • AND SO, YOU NEED TO BE ABLE
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:02.130
  • TO RECEIVE A WORD FROM SOMEBODY,
  • 00:03:02.130 --> 00:03:05.030
  • YOU NEED TO BE ABLE
  • 00:03:05.030 --> 00:03:05.220
  • TO HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:03:05.220 --> 00:03:06.240
  • IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:03:06.240 --> 00:03:08.000
  • AND YOU NEED TO HAVE
  • 00:03:08.000 --> 00:03:08.200
  • SOME KIND OF GRID,
  • 00:03:08.200 --> 00:03:09.240
  • SOME KIND OF FILTER,
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:11.090
  • THROUGH WHICH YOU FILTER OUT,
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:12.240
  • IS THIS GOD?
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:15.260
  • BECAUSE FOR SOME OF YOU,
  • 00:03:15.260 --> 00:03:17.040
  • IT'S DECISIONS ABOUT CAREERS,
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:19.060
  • AND IT'S DECISIONS ABOUT MOVING,
  • 00:03:19.060 --> 00:03:20.280
  • AND IT'S DECISIONS ABOUT
  • 00:03:20.280 --> 00:03:21.270
  • TAKING STEPS OF FAITH,
  • 00:03:21.270 --> 00:03:23.120
  • AND IT'S DECISIONS THAT
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:24.130
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:03:24.130 --> 00:03:26.120
  • YOU KNOW, THAT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:27.100 --> 00:03:30.100
  • THAT IT WAS GOD.
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:31.180
  • 1 JOHN 4 SAYS IT
  • 00:03:31.180 --> 00:03:32.280
  • LIKE THIS TO US,
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:34.050
  • IN 1 JOHN 4:1, IT SAYS:
  • 00:03:34.050 --> 00:03:35.120
  • "DEAR FRIENDS,
  • 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:37.060
  • DO NOT BELIEVE EVERY SPIRIT..."
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:40.080
  • 'CAUSE SOME OF 'EM AIN'T HOLY.
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:44.010
  • THAT WAS FUNNIER THAN YOU --
  • 00:03:44.010 --> 00:03:46.290
  • FELT LIKE IT WAS BETTER
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:47.240
  • THAN THE RESPONSE.
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:49.240
  • "DO NOT BELIEVE EVERY SPIRIT..."
  • 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:51.230
  • LISTEN TO THIS:
  • 00:03:51.230 --> 00:03:52.050
  • "BUT TEST THE SPIRITS
  • 00:03:52.050 --> 00:03:54.210
  • TO SEE WHETHER
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:55.140
  • THEY'RE NOT FROM GOD."
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:57.180
  • SO TEST THE SPIRITS,
  • 00:03:57.180 --> 00:03:59.100
  • SO WHAT IS MY TEST?
  • 00:03:59.100 --> 00:04:01.010
  • WHAT IS MY FILTER?
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:01.290
  • WHAT IS MY LITMUS TEST TO KNOW
  • 00:04:01.290 --> 00:04:04.160
  • IF IT'S FROM GOD?
  • 00:04:04.160 --> 00:04:05.060
  • ANOTHER VERSE ADDRESSES THIS,
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:06.110
  • IT SAYS IN PROVERBS 4:12:
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:07.240
  • "THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMS
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:09.150
  • RIGHT TO A MAN,
  • 00:04:09.150 --> 00:04:11.030
  • BUT IN THE END LEADS TO DEATH."
  • 00:04:11.180 --> 00:04:14.180
  • THERE'S SOME THINGS
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:15.120
  • THAT WE CAN THINK,
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:16.200
  • THIS FEELS RIGHT,
  • 00:04:16.200 --> 00:04:17.290
  • IT -- I THINK IT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:20.200
  • I'M GONNA TRY IT OUT.
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:22.210
  • BUT IN THE END,
  • 00:04:22.210 --> 00:04:23.080
  • IT LEADS TO DEATH.
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:24.030
  • SO WE'VE GOTTA KNOW
  • 00:04:24.030 --> 00:04:25.020
  • HOW TO TEST THE SPIRITS,
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:27.030
  • WE NEED A GRID THROUGH WHICH
  • 00:04:27.030 --> 00:04:28.290
  • WE MAKE SOME DECISIONS
  • 00:04:28.290 --> 00:04:30.100
  • ON WHETHER OR NOT,
  • 00:04:30.100 --> 00:04:31.080
  • YES, THIS WAS THE VOICE OF GOD,
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:32.240
  • NO, THAT WAS NOT
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:33.120
  • THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:34.240
  • YES, THIS IS THE LEADING OF GOD.
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:36.260
  • NO, THAT'S -- ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:04:36.260 --> 00:04:38.200
  • SO I WANNA GIVE YOU
  • 00:04:38.200 --> 00:04:40.110
  • FOUR QUESTIONS TODAY,
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:41.260
  • FOUR QUESTIONS THAT
  • 00:04:41.260 --> 00:04:43.170
  • I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU --
  • 00:04:43.170 --> 00:04:44.160
  • THESE WERE GIVEN TO ME
  • 00:04:44.160 --> 00:04:45.100
  • YEARS AND YEARS AGO,
  • 00:04:45.100 --> 00:04:46.100
  • WHEN I WAS MUCH, MUCH YOUNGER,
  • 00:04:46.100 --> 00:04:48.180
  • BEFORE I EVER WENT INTO
  • 00:04:48.180 --> 00:04:49.130
  • THE MINISTRY,
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:49.290
  • I HAD -- JUST THANK GOD,
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:51.080
  • I HAD GODLY PARENTS,
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:52.140
  • AND I HAD GREAT MENTORS
  • 00:04:52.140 --> 00:04:53.130
  • IN MY LIFE THAT SAID,
  • 00:04:53.130 --> 00:04:55.010
  • "HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:56.070
  • YOU NEED TO ASK TO KNOW
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:58.050
  • WHETHER OR NOT IT'S GOD
  • 00:04:58.050 --> 00:05:00.030
  • THAT IS SPEAKING TO YOU,
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:01.060
  • AND KNOW HOW TO FILTER
  • 00:05:01.060 --> 00:05:02.170
  • THE VOICE OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:04.080
  • AND KNOW HOW TO FOLLOW
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:04.280
  • THE DIRECTION OF GOD
  • 00:05:04.280 --> 00:05:05.140
  • IN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:05:05.140 --> 00:05:05.270
  • SO QUESTION NUMBER ONE IS THIS,
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:07.270
  • IS DOES IT AGREE
  • 00:05:07.270 --> 00:05:09.090
  • WITH GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:05:09.090 --> 00:05:11.220
  • THIS IS IN ORDER
  • 00:05:11.220 --> 00:05:13.160
  • OF PRIORITY AS WELL.
  • 00:05:13.160 --> 00:05:15.290
  • THIS ISN'T
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:16.120
  • THE LAST QUESTION TO ASK.
  • 00:05:16.120 --> 00:05:17.240
  • THIS ISN'T
  • 00:05:17.240 --> 00:05:18.120
  • THE THIRD QUESTION TO ASK.
  • 00:05:18.120 --> 00:05:20.050
  • THIS IS NOT
  • 00:05:20.050 --> 00:05:20.200
  • THE SECOND QUESTION TO ASK.
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:22.150
  • THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE
  • 00:05:22.150 --> 00:05:24.020
  • QUESTION TO ASK,
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:25.220
  • IS WHAT I'M HEARING
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:27.040
  • AGREE WITH GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:05:27.040 --> 00:05:29.080
  • LISTEN TO THIS,
  • 00:05:29.080 --> 00:05:29.210
  • GOD'S VOICE WILL NEVER
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:31.060
  • CONTRADICT GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:05:31.060 --> 00:05:33.240
  • LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:05:33.240 --> 00:05:34.210
  • GOD'S VOICE WILL NEVER
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.180
  • CONTRADICT GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:40.160
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:41.010
  • EVEN JESUS AFFIRMS THIS.
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:42.250
  • LISTEN TO THIS IN MATTHEW 12.
  • 00:05:42.250 --> 00:05:44.100
  • "AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:45.060
  • JESUS WENT THROUGH
  • 00:05:45.060 --> 00:05:46.190
  • THE GRAIN FIELDS
  • 00:05:46.190 --> 00:05:47.100
  • ON THE SABBATH,
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:48.140
  • AND HIS DISCIPLES WERE HUNGRY
  • 00:05:48.140 --> 00:05:50.070
  • AND BEGAN TO PICK
  • 00:05:50.070 --> 00:05:51.030
  • SOME HEADS OF GRAIN
  • 00:05:51.030 --> 00:05:52.080
  • AND EAT THEM.
  • 00:05:52.080 --> 00:05:53.180
  • AND WHEN THE PHARISEES SAW THIS,
  • 00:05:53.180 --> 00:05:55.020
  • THEY SAID TO HIM, 'LOOK,
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.070
  • YOUR DISCIPLES ARE DOING
  • 00:05:56.070 --> 00:05:57.070
  • WHAT IS UNLAWFUL.'"
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:05:58.030
  • THEY WERE DOING WORK
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:05:58.180
  • ON THE SABBATH,
  • 00:05:58.180 --> 00:05:59.080
  • AND THAT WAS UNLAWFUL,
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:05:59.290
  • AND THEY WERE TRYING
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:00.170
  • TO ALWAYS CATCH JESUS
  • 00:06:00.170 --> 00:06:02.000
  • IN SOMETHING:
  • 00:06:02.000 --> 00:06:03.060
  • "'ON THE SABBATH.'
  • 00:06:03.060 --> 00:06:03.220
  • AND HE ANSWERED,
  • 00:06:03.220 --> 00:06:04.180
  • 'HAVEN'T YOU READ,'"
  • 00:06:06.010 --> 00:06:09.010
  • -- SO JESUS IS FACING
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:10.150
  • A SITUATION,
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:12.040
  • AND JESUS DOESN'T EVEN
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:13.040
  • GIVE HIS OWN OPINION.
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.200
  • JESUS TAKES THEM BACK
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:16.170
  • TO THE WRITTEN SCRIPTURES
  • 00:06:16.170 --> 00:06:17.260
  • OF THE TIME,
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:19.270
  • TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE.
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.140
  • THEY WERE GIVING HIM A WORD,
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:24.220
  • "YOU SHOULDN'T EAT
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:25.130
  • ON THE SABBATH.
  • 00:06:25.130 --> 00:06:28.080
  • YOUR DISCIPLES HAVE TATTOOS.
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:36.160
  • YOU NEED TO BE
  • 00:06:36.160 --> 00:06:37.010
  • WEARING LONGER SKIRTS."
  • 00:06:37.010 --> 00:06:39.150
  • THEY WERE GIVING HIM A WORD,
  • 00:06:39.150 --> 00:06:41.250
  • AND JESUS DIDN'T GO,
  • 00:06:41.250 --> 00:06:43.020
  • "WELL, THAT'S NOT
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:43.150
  • HOW I FEEL ABOUT IT.
  • 00:06:43.150 --> 00:06:46.000
  • THAT'S NOT MY OPINION."
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:47.200
  • HE SAYS, "HAVEN'T YOU READ?"
  • 00:06:47.200 --> 00:06:50.000
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:50.220
  • HE TOOK THEM BACK TO SAY,
  • 00:06:50.220 --> 00:06:52.070
  • "IS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
  • 00:06:52.070 --> 00:06:53.160
  • LINE UP WITH
  • 00:06:53.160 --> 00:06:54.150
  • WHAT THE WORD SAYS?"
  • 00:06:54.230 --> 00:06:57.230
  • SO HOW DO I FILTER OUT
  • 00:06:57.230 --> 00:06:58.220
  • THE VOICE OF GOD?
  • 00:06:58.220 --> 00:06:59.230
  • AND HE GOES ON TO TELL
  • 00:06:59.230 --> 00:07:00.250
  • A STORY ABOUT DAVID,
  • 00:07:00.250 --> 00:07:02.010
  • AND HOW DAVID
  • 00:07:02.010 --> 00:07:02.200
  • AND HIS COMPANIONS WERE HUNGRY,
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:03.290
  • AND THEY ENDED UP EATING,
  • 00:07:03.290 --> 00:07:05.020
  • AND IT WAS ON THE SABBATH,
  • 00:07:05.020 --> 00:07:07.150
  • AND HE GOES,
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:07.270
  • "HAVEN'T YOU READ?
  • 00:07:07.270 --> 00:07:08.280
  • THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE."
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:10.120
  • THERE'S A PRECEDENT FOR THIS.
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:12.070
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:13.290
  • AND SO, IT'S NOT HOW I FEEL,
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:18.030
  • IT'S NOT WHAT
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:18.150
  • MAKES ME FEEL GOOD,
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:19.180
  • IT'S NOT WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY.
  • 00:07:19.180 --> 00:07:21.050
  • I KNOW THAT'S NOT
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:21.260
  • POPULAR TO HEAR,
  • 00:07:21.260 --> 00:07:23.110
  • BUT THERE IS A WAY THAT
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:24.110
  • SEEMS RIGHT UNTO A MAN,
  • 00:07:24.110 --> 00:07:26.080
  • BUT IN THE END,
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:26.230
  • IT LEADS TO DESTRUCTION
  • 00:07:26.230 --> 00:07:27.270
  • AND IT LEADS TO DEATH.
  • 00:07:27.270 --> 00:07:29.110
  • SO IT'S NOT --
  • 00:07:29.110 --> 00:07:30.070
  • I DON'T BEGIN WITH,
  • 00:07:30.070 --> 00:07:31.040
  • WILL THIS MAKE ME HAPPY?
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:32.220
  • AND I DON'T BEGIN
  • 00:07:32.220 --> 00:07:33.090
  • AT THE PLACE OF,
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:34.090
  • DOES THIS FEEL GOOD TO ME?
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:36.000
  • I BEGIN --
  • 00:07:36.000 --> 00:07:36.150
  • MY STARTING POINT IS,
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:38.060
  • DOES THIS AGREE
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:39.290
  • WITH THE WORD OF GOD?
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:42.210
  • I HAD SOMEONE SAY TO ME ONCE,
  • 00:07:42.210 --> 00:07:44.010
  • I PREACHED A MESSAGE
  • 00:07:44.010 --> 00:07:44.270
  • AND I TALKED ABOUT HOW
  • 00:07:44.270 --> 00:07:47.230
  • YOU NEED TO GET OFF
  • 00:07:47.230 --> 00:07:48.260
  • OF THE MERRY-GO-ROUND OF LIFE,
  • 00:07:48.260 --> 00:07:50.060
  • THAT SOME OF YOU ARE STUCK
  • 00:07:50.060 --> 00:07:51.070
  • ON THIS MERRY-GO-ROUND,
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.110
  • AND YOU FEEL LIKE LIFE
  • 00:07:52.110 --> 00:07:53.020
  • IS JUST GOING AROUND AND AROUND,
  • 00:07:53.020 --> 00:07:54.010
  • YOU'RE DOING THE SAME THINGS
  • 00:07:54.010 --> 00:07:54.200
  • OVER AND OVER,
  • 00:07:54.200 --> 00:07:55.150
  • AND GOD WANTS TO GET YOU
  • 00:07:55.150 --> 00:07:56.100
  • OUT OF THAT,
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:57.060
  • WANTS TO GET YOU UNSTUCK,
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:07:58.210
  • AND MOVE YOU ON,
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:07:59.290
  • AND YOU NEED TO MOVE ON,
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:01.180
  • AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:08:01.180 --> 00:08:02.010
  • IT WAS A GOOD PREACH MESSAGE.
  • 00:08:02.010 --> 00:08:03.120
  • IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY SHOUT,
  • 00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:04.040
  • "MOVE ON."
  • 00:08:04.040 --> 00:08:04.250
  • COME ON.
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:06.080
  • YOU NEED TO MOVE ON.
  • 00:08:06.080 --> 00:08:07.020
  • YOU KNOW, IT WAS LIKE
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:07.240
  • COME ON WITH IT, KIND OF --
  • 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:09.180
  • YOU KNOW, I WAS FEELING --
  • 00:08:09.180 --> 00:08:11.190
  • YOU KNOW, WAS FEELING IT.
  • 00:08:11.190 --> 00:08:13.050
  • THE ORGAN WAS -- COME ON.
  • 00:08:13.050 --> 00:08:14.290
  • THAT AIN'T TODAY,
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:15.210
  • I'M TEACHING TODAY,
  • 00:08:15.210 --> 00:08:16.250
  • BUT I CAN GO THERE.
  • 00:08:16.250 --> 00:08:18.050
  • SOMEONE IN THE CHURCH SAID,
  • 00:08:18.050 --> 00:08:20.020
  • "MAN, PASTOR'S MESSAGE
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:20.270
  • REALLY SPOKE TO ME,
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:21.240
  • 'CAUSE, LIKE, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:08:21.240 --> 00:08:24.030
  • I'VE BEEN IN THIS MARRIAGE,
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:25.030
  • AND I FEEL LIKE THE MARRIAGE
  • 00:08:25.030 --> 00:08:25.250
  • IS A MERRY-GO-ROUND,
  • 00:08:25.250 --> 00:08:27.100
  • AND I NEED TO GET OFF IT."
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:30.010
  • AND I WAS LIKE, "STUPID."
  • 00:08:30.230 --> 00:08:33.230
  • I DIDN'T SAY IT,
  • 00:08:33.230 --> 00:08:34.100
  • THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:35.260
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:08:35.260 --> 00:08:36.180
  • PASTORALLY,
  • 00:08:36.180 --> 00:08:37.110
  • I DIDN'T SAY THAT OUT-LOUD.
  • 00:08:37.110 --> 00:08:40.040
  • JUST -- DANIEL THOUGHT IT,
  • 00:08:40.040 --> 00:08:41.240
  • PASTOR DANIEL WAS LIKE,
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:43.120
  • "NOW, LET'S TALK ABOUT THAT."
  • 00:08:43.120 --> 00:08:44.170
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:08:44.170 --> 00:08:47.040
  • THERE'S NOTHING ABOUT THAT,
  • 00:08:47.040 --> 00:08:49.040
  • THAT AGREES WITH
  • 00:08:49.040 --> 00:08:49.190
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:08:49.190 --> 00:08:51.240
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:53.070
  • THERE'S NOTHING.
  • 00:08:53.070 --> 00:08:54.150
  • NOTHING ABOUT IT THAT
  • 00:08:54.150 --> 00:08:55.110
  • AGREES WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:08:55.110 --> 00:08:58.070
  • AND SO, IF WHAT I'M FEELING
  • 00:08:58.070 --> 00:09:00.210
  • OR WHAT I'M THINKING
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.110
  • OR THE CHOICE I'M ABOUT --
  • 00:09:02.110 --> 00:09:03.240
  • I FEEL LIKE THIS IS WHAT
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:04.250
  • GOD WANTS ME TO DO,
  • 00:09:04.250 --> 00:09:06.080
  • THEN IT IS GOING TO AGREE
  • 00:09:06.080 --> 00:09:07.190
  • WITH THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:09:07.190 --> 00:09:08.170
  • 'CAUSE THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:09:08.170 --> 00:09:09.250
  • THAT YOU'RE HEARING
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:10.290
  • WILL NEVER CONTRADICT
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:12.020
  • THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:13.030
  • THAT HAS ALREADY
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:14.000
  • BEEN WRITTEN.
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:15.190
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:09:16.200 --> 00:09:19.200
  • SO I JUST --
  • 00:09:19.200 --> 00:09:20.210
  • I FEEL LIKE GOD WANTS
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:21.230
  • ME TO DO THIS.
  • 00:09:21.230 --> 00:09:22.230
  • WELL, THAT'S GOOD,
  • 00:09:22.230 --> 00:09:23.180
  • BUT FIRST,
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:24.150
  • LET'S MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T
  • 00:09:24.150 --> 00:09:25.230
  • CONTRADICT THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:09:25.230 --> 00:09:28.160
  • DOES IT GO AGAINST WHAT
  • 00:09:28.160 --> 00:09:29.170
  • GOD HAS ALREADY REVEALED
  • 00:09:29.170 --> 00:09:30.210
  • TO ME IN SCRIPTURE?
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:31.240
  • 'CAUSE GOD IS NOT
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:32.170
  • SCHIZOPHRENIC.
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:33.170
  • GOD WILL NOT CONTRADICT HIMSELF.
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:35.210
  • GOD IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:37.130
  • TODAY, AND FOREVER.
  • 00:09:37.130 --> 00:09:39.170
  • AND SO, I CAN GO TO HIS WORD,
  • 00:09:40.030 --> 00:09:43.030
  • AND HIS WORD
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:43.190
  • WILL GIVE ME DIRECTION,
  • 00:09:43.190 --> 00:09:44.290
  • SO IT WON'T CONTRADICT HIS WORD.
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:47.080
  • AND SO, THAT'S
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:47.200
  • YOUR STARTING POINT.
  • 00:09:47.200 --> 00:09:48.230
  • ALL RIGHT, CHURCH?
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:49.140
  • THAT'S YOUR STARTING POINT.
  • 00:09:49.140 --> 00:09:50.190
  • I THINK I HEAR THAT GOD
  • 00:09:50.190 --> 00:09:51.270
  • IS LEADING ME IN A DIRECTION.
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:53.040
  • WELL, DOES IT CONTRADICT
  • 00:09:53.040 --> 00:09:54.080
  • THE WORD OF GOD?
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:55.090
  • AND FOR SOME PEOPLE,
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:56.040
  • AND THIS IS A VALID POINT,
  • 00:09:56.040 --> 00:09:57.020
  • THEY'LL SAY, "WELL,
  • 00:09:57.020 --> 00:09:58.160
  • WHAT I'M DEALING WITH
  • 00:09:58.160 --> 00:09:59.210
  • DOESN'T REALLY HAVE
  • 00:09:59.210 --> 00:10:02.100
  • A SCRIPTURE AND VERSE."
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.270
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:10:03.270 --> 00:10:05.090
  • LIKE, I'M TRYING TO DECIDE
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:06.030
  • IF I SHOULD
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:06.150
  • TAKE THIS JOB OR NOT.
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:10.010
  • AND THERE'S NOT A VERSE
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:11.020
  • THAT SAYS, "YES, RESIGN --
  • 00:10:11.020 --> 00:10:14.010
  • THEN THOU SHALT RESIGNETH
  • 00:10:14.010 --> 00:10:16.160
  • ON THE THIRD DAY OF THE MONTH,
  • 00:10:16.160 --> 00:10:18.190
  • AT THE FULL MOON.
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:20.080
  • AND AFTER THAT,
  • 00:10:20.080 --> 00:10:21.070
  • GOD SHALL OPEN UP THE DOOR,
  • 00:10:21.070 --> 00:10:23.180
  • AND IT WILL BE SIX FIGURES,
  • 00:10:23.180 --> 00:10:25.180
  • AND IT WILL HAVE GOOD..."
  • 00:10:25.180 --> 00:10:26.210
  • -- YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:27.160
  • LIKE, NO, THERE'S NO VERSE
  • 00:10:27.160 --> 00:10:28.270
  • FOR THAT, RIGHT?
  • 00:10:28.270 --> 00:10:30.010
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO IN THAT,
  • 00:10:30.010 --> 00:10:33.010
  • SO LET'S GO TO
  • 00:10:33.010 --> 00:10:33.170
  • THE NEXT FILTER, THEN.
  • 00:10:33.170 --> 00:10:35.050
  • FILTER NUMBER TWO IS THIS,
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:37.060
  • DOES IT DRAW ME
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:37.280
  • CLOSER TO JESUS?
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:41.010
  • DOES IT DRAW ME
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:41.180
  • CLOSER TO JESUS?
  • 00:10:41.180 --> 00:10:43.240
  • ALL RIGHT, IT DOESN'T --
  • 00:10:43.240 --> 00:10:44.180
  • PASTOR, IT DOESN'T CONTRADICT
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:46.010
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:10:46.010 --> 00:10:47.030
  • BUT THERE'S NOT
  • 00:10:47.030 --> 00:10:47.180
  • NECESSARILY, LIKE,
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:49.010
  • A SCRIPTURE AND VERSE
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:50.080
  • THAT CAN -- THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:52.010
  • THERE'S SOME WISDOM THERE.
  • 00:10:52.010 --> 00:10:53.100
  • I READ THE PROVERBS,
  • 00:10:53.100 --> 00:10:54.060
  • THEY KIND OF GIVE ME SOME
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:55.000
  • WISDOM FOR HOW TO THINK
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:56.050
  • ABOUT IT,
  • 00:10:56.050 --> 00:10:57.060
  • AND HOW TO GO AFTER IT,
  • 00:10:57.060 --> 00:10:58.000
  • BUT I DON'T REALLY HAVE, LIKE,
  • 00:10:58.000 --> 00:11:00.080
  • DIRECT DIRECTION
  • 00:11:00.080 --> 00:11:01.170
  • IN THE BIBLE FOR IT.
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:02.220
  • THERE'S NO, LIKE,
  • 00:11:02.220 --> 00:11:04.010
  • YOU KNOW, YES, MARRY JAN, LIKE,
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:08.090
  • THAT -- I'VE LOOKED --
  • 00:11:08.090 --> 00:11:09.150
  • YOU KNOW?
  • 00:11:09.150 --> 00:11:10.060
  • LIKE, IT'S NOT --
  • 00:11:10.060 --> 00:11:11.010
  • LIKE, YES,
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:11.220
  • TAMMY IS THE -- YOU KNOW?
  • 00:11:11.220 --> 00:11:13.090
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:11:13.090 --> 00:11:14.100
  • LIKE, THERE'S THOSE DECISIONS
  • 00:11:14.100 --> 00:11:15.250
  • THAT YOU'VE GOTTA MAKE,
  • 00:11:15.250 --> 00:11:16.120
  • AND IT'S LIKE,
  • 00:11:16.120 --> 00:11:17.000
  • I'VE READ THE WORD AND --
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:18.150
  • BUT I DON'T --
  • 00:11:18.150 --> 00:11:19.060
  • THERE'S NO, LIKE, CLEAR BOX.
  • 00:11:19.060 --> 00:11:21.160
  • OKAY, WELL LET'S GO
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:22.030
  • TO NUMBER TWO.
  • 00:11:22.030 --> 00:11:22.140
  • DOES IT DRAW ME CLOSER
  • 00:11:22.140 --> 00:11:23.150
  • TO JESUS?
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:25.060
  • LOOK WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:11:25.060 --> 00:11:27.070
  • IT SAYS: "BUT THE WISDOM
  • 00:11:27.070 --> 00:11:28.030
  • THAT COMES FROM HEAVEN
  • 00:11:28.030 --> 00:11:28.280
  • IS FIRST ALL PURE."
  • 00:11:28.280 --> 00:11:31.150
  • SO THE WORD, THE VOICE,
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:33.010
  • THAT WILL COME FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:11:33.010 --> 00:11:34.210
  • IT'S GONNA BE PURE.
  • 00:11:34.210 --> 00:11:36.070
  • IT'S GONNA BE PEACE-LOVING.
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:38.000
  • IT'S GONNA BE CONSIDERATE.
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:39.160
  • IT'S GONNA BE SUBMISSIVE.
  • 00:11:39.160 --> 00:11:41.020
  • IT'S GONNA BE FULL OF
  • 00:11:41.020 --> 00:11:41.230
  • MERCY AND GOOD FRUIT.
  • 00:11:41.230 --> 00:11:43.140
  • IT'S GONNA BE
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:43.280
  • IMPARTIAL AND SINCERE.
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:45.150
  • PEACEMAKERS WHO SOW IN PEACE
  • 00:11:45.150 --> 00:11:47.120
  • RAISE A HARVEST
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:48.110
  • OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:11:48.110 --> 00:11:50.070
  • ALL THESE THINGS LOOK LIKE
  • 00:11:50.070 --> 00:11:51.210
  • THINGS TO ME THAT DRAW ME
  • 00:11:51.210 --> 00:11:52.270
  • CLOSER TO JESUS,
  • 00:11:52.270 --> 00:11:54.240
  • THAT MAKE MORE LIKE JESUS.
  • 00:11:54.240 --> 00:11:56.100
  • HE WAS A PURE PERSON.
  • 00:11:56.100 --> 00:11:57.230
  • HE WAS A PEACE-LOVING PERSON.
  • 00:11:57.230 --> 00:11:59.060
  • HE WAS A CONSIDERATE PERSON.
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:00.270
  • HE WAS A SUBMISSIVE
  • 00:12:00.270 --> 00:12:01.190
  • TO THE FATHER PERSON.
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:02.260
  • HE WAS FULL OF MERCY
  • 00:12:02.260 --> 00:12:03.230
  • AND GOOD FRUIT.
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:05.010
  • HE WAS IMPARTIAL, AND HE --
  • 00:12:05.010 --> 00:12:06.060
  • ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME?
  • 00:12:06.060 --> 00:12:07.050
  • THESE ARE THINGS THAT
  • 00:12:07.050 --> 00:12:07.280
  • DRAW ME TO JESUS.
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:10.080
  • SO DOES IT DRAW ME
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:11.160
  • CLOSER TO JESUS?
  • 00:12:11.160 --> 00:12:14.080
  • SO HOW DOES THIS PLAY OUT?
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:15.100
  • WELL, PASTOR, I FEEL LIKE
  • 00:12:15.100 --> 00:12:16.170
  • GOD'S SPEAKING TO ME
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:17.170
  • ABOUT TAKING THIS NEW JOB,
  • 00:12:17.170 --> 00:12:20.020
  • AND I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
  • 00:12:20.020 --> 00:12:20.270
  • IF IT'S GOD OR NOT.
  • 00:12:20.270 --> 00:12:22.100
  • WELL, DOES THE SCHEDULE
  • 00:12:22.100 --> 00:12:24.090
  • OF THE NEW JOB ALLOW YOU
  • 00:12:24.090 --> 00:12:25.240
  • TO GET CLOSER TO JESUS,
  • 00:12:25.240 --> 00:12:27.150
  • OR IS IT GONNA PULL YOU
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:28.110
  • FARTHER AWAY FROM JESUS?
  • 00:12:29.120 --> 00:12:32.120
  • ARE YOU FOLLOWING --
  • 00:12:32.120 --> 00:12:32.270
  • DO YOU SEE HOW
  • 00:12:32.270 --> 00:12:34.060
  • THIS BEGINS TO PLAY OUT?
  • 00:12:34.060 --> 00:12:36.060
  • WELL, I FEEL LIKE
  • 00:12:36.060 --> 00:12:36.210
  • I SHOULD GO OUT WITH HIM.
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:38.130
  • WELL, IS HE GONNA PULL YOU
  • 00:12:38.130 --> 00:12:39.190
  • CLOSER TO JESUS,
  • 00:12:39.190 --> 00:12:41.070
  • OR IS HE GONNA PUSH YOU
  • 00:12:41.070 --> 00:12:42.060
  • FARTHER AWAY FROM JESUS?
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:45.280
  • I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD
  • 00:12:45.280 --> 00:12:46.240
  • MAKE THIS EXPENDITURE,
  • 00:12:46.240 --> 00:12:48.170
  • BUT I'M REALLY TRYING
  • 00:12:48.170 --> 00:12:49.130
  • TO DISCERN THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:12:49.130 --> 00:12:51.020
  • WELL, WILL DOING THAT THING
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:52.150
  • DRAW YOU CLOSER TO JESUS,
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:54.170
  • OR WILL IT PULL YOU
  • 00:12:54.170 --> 00:12:55.050
  • FARTHER AWAY FROM JESUS?
  • 00:12:55.050 --> 00:12:57.050
  • ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME?
  • 00:12:57.050 --> 00:12:58.090
  • SO IT'S NOT CONTRADICTING
  • 00:12:58.090 --> 00:12:59.270
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:12:59.270 --> 00:13:01.070
  • AND I DON'T REALLY HAVE
  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:01.290
  • A CLEAR VERSE TO GIVE ME
  • 00:13:01.290 --> 00:13:03.070
  • DIRECTION IN IT.
  • 00:13:03.070 --> 00:13:04.180
  • WELL, YOUR NEXT FILTER THEN
  • 00:13:04.180 --> 00:13:05.210
  • IS WILL IT DRAW ME
  • 00:13:05.210 --> 00:13:07.010
  • CLOSER TO JESUS?
  • 00:13:08.030 --> 00:13:11.030
  • I'VE SEEN TOO MANY PEOPLE,
  • 00:13:11.030 --> 00:13:13.170
  • OVER MY TIME IN MINISTRY,
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:15.030
  • MAKE DECISIONS THAT YOU COULD
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:17.280
  • SEE ALL OVER THE DECISION
  • 00:13:17.280 --> 00:13:20.110
  • BEFORE IT WAS EVER MADE
  • 00:13:20.110 --> 00:13:22.100
  • THAT IT WAS GONNA
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:22.250
  • PULL THEM AWAY FROM JESUS.
  • 00:13:22.250 --> 00:13:25.090
  • IT WAS GONNA PULL THEM AWAY
  • 00:13:25.090 --> 00:13:26.080
  • FROM THEIR CONNECTION
  • 00:13:26.080 --> 00:13:27.040
  • TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:13:27.040 --> 00:13:28.290
  • IT WAS GONNA PULL THEM AWAY --
  • 00:13:28.290 --> 00:13:30.160
  • "WELL, MAN, THIS IS A GREAT
  • 00:13:30.160 --> 00:13:31.110
  • OPPORTUNITY, THIS NEW JOB,
  • 00:13:31.110 --> 00:13:32.290

  • IT'S A LOT MORE MONEY,
  • 00:13:34.220 --> 00:13:35.150
  • BUT I GOTTA WORK EVERY SUNDAY."
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:38.040
  • I'D REALLY DISCERN
  • 00:13:38.040 --> 00:13:38.230
  • THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:39.130
  • I'M NOT SAYING IT'S NOT GOD,
  • 00:13:39.130 --> 00:13:41.290
  • BUT I'D BE REAL CAREFUL
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:42.180
  • TO DISCERN THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:13:42.180 --> 00:13:43.210
  • IN THAT.
  • 00:13:43.210 --> 00:13:46.140
  • BECAUSE IT'S GONNA PULL YOU --
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:48.250
  • IT'S GONNA PULL ON YOU
  • 00:13:48.250 --> 00:13:50.170
  • FROM YOUR CONNECTION TO JESUS.
  • 00:13:50.170 --> 00:13:52.090
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:13:52.090 --> 00:13:54.000
  • "MAN, HE SENT ME FLOWERS,
  • 00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:57.090
  • AND HE'S SO SWEET.
  • 00:13:57.090 --> 00:14:00.030
  • HE DON'T REALLY WANNA
  • 00:14:00.030 --> 00:14:00.200
  • COME TO CHURCH WITH ME,
  • 00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:01.150
  • BUT HE'S NICE.
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:03.030
  • HE'S NICE.
  • 00:14:03.030 --> 00:14:05.060
  • HE'S KIND.
  • 00:14:05.060 --> 00:14:07.180
  • HE'S A GOOD GUY.
  • 00:14:07.180 --> 00:14:08.090
  • HE'S A GOOD, MORAL GUY."
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:18.200
  • IS HE GONNA DRAW YOU
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:19.090
  • CLOSER TO JESUS?
  • 00:14:19.090 --> 00:14:22.090
  • "I'M A MISSIONARY, PASTOR.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:23.100
  • I'M MISSIONARY DATING."
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:25.050
  • NO.
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:26.040
  • NO.
  • 00:14:26.040 --> 00:14:27.120
  • AIN'T NO SUCH THING.
  • 00:14:27.120 --> 00:14:30.110
  • IS IT GONNA DRAW YOU
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:31.000
  • CLOSER TO JESUS OR PULL YOU
  • 00:14:31.000 --> 00:14:33.060
  • FARTHER AWAY FROM JESUS?
  • 00:14:33.060 --> 00:14:35.060
  • IT'S YOUR NEXT FILTER.
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:36.090
  • IS THIS THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:14:36.090 --> 00:14:37.020
  • IN MY LIFE?
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:39.000
  • SOMEONE SPOKE A WORD TO ME,
  • 00:14:39.000 --> 00:14:40.020
  • IS WHAT THEY'RE SAYING TO ME
  • 00:14:40.020 --> 00:14:41.080
  • GONNA DRAW ME CLOSER TO JESUS
  • 00:14:41.080 --> 00:14:42.240
  • OR PULL ME FARTHER
  • 00:14:42.240 --> 00:14:43.160
  • AWAY FROM JESUS?
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:45.100
  • IS WHAT THEY SAID TO ME
  • 00:14:45.100 --> 00:14:46.060
  • CONTRADICT GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:14:46.060 --> 00:14:47.120
  • OR LINE UP WITH GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:14:47.120 --> 00:14:48.230
  • IF IT CONTRADICTS,
  • 00:14:48.230 --> 00:14:49.210
  • YOU JUST SAY,
  • 00:14:49.210 --> 00:14:50.170
  • "GOD BLESS YOU,
  • 00:14:50.170 --> 00:14:51.040
  • BLESS YOUR HEART."
  • 00:14:51.040 --> 00:14:51.290
  • YOU KNOW, THE SOUTHERN WAY
  • 00:14:51.290 --> 00:14:52.180
  • OF SAYING, "YOU FOOL."
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:53.270
  • BLESS YOUR HEART.
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:56.070
  • BLESS YOUR HEART.
  • 00:14:56.070 --> 00:14:58.110
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:14:58.110 --> 00:14:59.160
  • YOU JUST SMILE,
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:00.180
  • "BLESS YOUR HEART, "
  • 00:15:00.180 --> 00:15:01.140
  • LET 'EM GO ON, RIGHT?
  • 00:15:01.140 --> 00:15:02.240
  • AND YOU JUST GO, OKAY,
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:04.060
  • WE'RE GONNA FILE 13 THAT ONE,
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:05.250
  • 'CAUSE WHAT THEY JUST SAID
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:06.260
  • CONTRADICTS THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:15:06.260 --> 00:15:08.270
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:15:08.270 --> 00:15:10.040
  • BUT IF IT DOESN'T CONTRADICT
  • 00:15:10.040 --> 00:15:10.290
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:15:10.290 --> 00:15:11.240
  • THEN YOU GOTTA GO,
  • 00:15:11.240 --> 00:15:12.120
  • DOES THIS DRAW ME CLOSER
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:13.090
  • TO JESUS OR FARTHER AWAY
  • 00:15:13.090 --> 00:15:14.070
  • FROM JESUS?
  • 00:15:14.070 --> 00:15:16.020
  • THE NUMBER THREE QUESTION
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:16.270
  • IS THIS, AND THIS IS --
  • 00:15:16.270 --> 00:15:18.240
  • SOME OF YOU ARE GONNA BE LIKE --
  • 00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:20.200
  • LIKE, CHALK BOARD.
  • 00:15:20.200 --> 00:15:21.180
  • DOES YOUR SPIRITUAL
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:22.080
  • AUTHORITY AGREE?
  • 00:15:22.260 --> 00:15:25.260
  • DOES YOUR SPIRITUAL
  • 00:15:25.260 --> 00:15:26.260
  • AUTHORITY AGREE?
  • 00:15:26.260 --> 00:15:28.040
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:29.260
  • "THE WAY OF THE FOOL
  • 00:15:29.260 --> 00:15:30.200
  • SEEMS RIGHT TO HIM,
  • 00:15:30.200 --> 00:15:32.080
  • BUT A WISE MAN
  • 00:15:32.080 --> 00:15:33.230
  • LISTENS TO ADVICE."
  • 00:15:35.040 --> 00:15:38.040
  • A WISE PERSON LISTENS,
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:40.050
  • SEEKS, ADVICE.
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:43.000
  • LISTEN TO THIS IN PROVERBS:
  • 00:15:43.000 --> 00:15:43.290
  • "LISTEN TO ADVICE
  • 00:15:43.290 --> 00:15:44.230
  • AND ACCEPT INSTRUCTION,
  • 00:15:44.230 --> 00:15:46.060
  • AND IN THE END,
  • 00:15:46.060 --> 00:15:47.030
  • YOU WILL BE WISE.
  • 00:15:47.030 --> 00:15:48.220
  • MANY ARE THE PLANS
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:49.270
  • IN A MAN'S HEART,
  • 00:15:49.270 --> 00:15:51.010
  • BUT IT IS THE LORD'S PURPOSE
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:53.130
  • THAT PREVAILS."
  • 00:15:53.130 --> 00:15:55.070
  • ONE MORE.
  • 00:15:55.070 --> 00:15:56.000
  • "FOR WAGING WAR,
  • 00:15:56.000 --> 00:15:57.040
  • YOU NEED GUIDANCE.
  • 00:15:57.040 --> 00:15:58.200
  • AND FOR VICTORY,
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:00.040
  • MANY ADVISERS."
  • 00:16:00.060 --> 00:16:03.060
  • YOU WANT VICTORY IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:16:03.060 --> 00:16:05.040
  • YOU NEED SOME ADVISERS
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:05.250
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:05.250 --> 00:16:07.060
  • LISTEN TO ME,
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:07.200
  • I KNOW THIS IS KIND OF
  • 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:08.130
  • A FOREIGN CONCEPT
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:09.120
  • IN THE CULTURE
  • 00:16:09.120 --> 00:16:09.240
  • THAT WE LIVE IN,
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:11.010
  • BUT THERE IS SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY
  • 00:16:11.010 --> 00:16:12.180
  • THAT GOD HAS PUT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:12.180 --> 00:16:14.070
  • IF YOU'RE A CHILD,
  • 00:16:14.070 --> 00:16:16.190
  • IT'S CALLED MOM AND DAD.
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:19.240
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:16:19.240 --> 00:16:21.000
  • IF YOU'RE PART OF THIS CHURCH,
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.070
  • GOD'S GIVEN THE GIFT
  • 00:16:23.070 --> 00:16:25.090
  • OF ME AND MY WIFE TO YOU.
  • 00:16:25.160 --> 00:16:28.160
  • EPHESIANS 4, READ IT.
  • 00:16:28.160 --> 00:16:29.130
  • IT'S NOT MY WORDS.
  • 00:16:29.130 --> 00:16:30.010
  • GOD GIVES GIFTS
  • 00:16:30.010 --> 00:16:30.290
  • TO THE CHURCH, RIGHT?
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:33.200
  • I'M MESSING.
  • 00:16:33.200 --> 00:16:34.250
  • DON'T ENCOURAGE THAT BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:16:36.140 --> 00:16:39.140
  • BUT GOD GIVES THAT,
  • 00:16:39.140 --> 00:16:40.130
  • BECAUSE THERE'S PROTECTION
  • 00:16:40.130 --> 00:16:41.120
  • IN THAT.
  • 00:16:41.120 --> 00:16:43.130
  • SOME OF YOU GOT
  • 00:16:43.130 --> 00:16:43.280
  • A SMALL GROUP LEADER,
  • 00:16:43.280 --> 00:16:44.290
  • AND THEY'RE IN A PLACE
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:45.210
  • OF SPIRITUAL INFLUENCE
  • 00:16:45.210 --> 00:16:46.200
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:46.200 --> 00:16:47.060
  • AND SOME OF YOU GOT --
  • 00:16:47.060 --> 00:16:47.290
  • YOU GOT CAMPUS PASTORS,
  • 00:16:47.290 --> 00:16:49.000
  • AND YOU GOT STAFF MEMBERS,
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:50.070
  • AND YOU'VE GOT MENTORS,
  • 00:16:50.070 --> 00:16:51.250
  • AND YOU GOT PEOPLE
  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:52.120
  • THAT LOVE YOU.
  • 00:16:52.120 --> 00:16:53.100
  • THERE'S SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:54.250
  • THEY'RE THERE TO PROTECT YOU,
  • 00:16:54.250 --> 00:16:56.120
  • BECAUSE THEY SEE THINGS
  • 00:16:56.120 --> 00:16:57.210
  • AND EVEN DISCERN THINGS
  • 00:16:58.150 --> 00:17:01.170
  • BECAUSE OF THEIR MATURITY --
  • 00:17:01.170 --> 00:17:03.180
  • TALKED ABOUT A COUPLE
  • 00:17:03.180 --> 00:17:04.040
  • OF WEEKS AGO, RIGHT?
  • 00:17:04.040 --> 00:17:05.090
  • WE WANNA MATURE.
  • 00:17:05.090 --> 00:17:06.020
  • THEY DISCERN THINGS,
  • 00:17:06.020 --> 00:17:07.080
  • BECAUSE OF THEIR MATURITY
  • 00:17:07.080 --> 00:17:08.070
  • THAT YOU MAY NOT SEE.
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:09.130
  • AND YOU MAY NOT
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:09.290
  • WANT THEIR ADVICE.
  • 00:17:09.290 --> 00:17:11.150
  • AND YOU MAY NOT
  • 00:17:11.150 --> 00:17:12.020
  • LIKE THEIR ADVICE,
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:13.160
  • BUT IF YOU WILL SUBMIT
  • 00:17:13.160 --> 00:17:14.110
  • TO THEIR ADVICE,
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:16.000
  • YOU WILL SAVE YOURSELF
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:17.000
  • A WHOLE LOT OF HEARTACHE.
  • 00:17:17.000 --> 00:17:18.270
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT WE DO, THIS IS
  • 00:17:18.270 --> 00:17:20.190
  • -- AND I GET IT, I GET IT,
  • 00:17:20.190 --> 00:17:22.030
  • I UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:17:22.030 --> 00:17:23.250
  • BUT I'M JUST TRYING TO HELP YOU
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:24.210
  • BREAK OUT OF THIS
  • 00:17:24.210 --> 00:17:25.160
  • AND HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD
  • 00:17:25.160 --> 00:17:26.080
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:26.080 --> 00:17:27.030
  • IN THE CULTURE WE LIVE IN,
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:28.250
  • WE SEEK ADVICE
  • 00:17:28.250 --> 00:17:29.230
  • FROM THOSE WE KNOW
  • 00:17:29.230 --> 00:17:30.250
  • WILL TELL US
  • 00:17:30.250 --> 00:17:31.070
  • WHAT WE WANT TO HEAR.
  • 00:17:32.010 --> 00:17:35.010
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:17:35.010 --> 00:17:37.110
  • "WELL, I KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:37.110 --> 00:17:39.000
  • THEY WON'T SUPPORT ME,
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:39.260
  • BUT I'M GONNA CALL THEM..."
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:41.150
  • -- OVER HERE, RIGHT?
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:42.160
  • AND I KNOW THAT I CAN BE LIKE,
  • 00:17:42.160 --> 00:17:43.170
  • HERE'S WHAT I'M REALLY
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:44.040
  • WANTING TO DO.
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:44.230
  • I FEEL LIKE IT'S OF THE LORD.
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:45.210
  • AND THEY'LL BE LIKE,
  • 00:17:45.210 --> 00:17:46.070
  • "OH, GO AHEAD.
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:47.020
  • YOU SHOULD DO THAT."
  • 00:17:47.020 --> 00:17:48.150
  • AND THAT PERSON WOULDN'T KNOW
  • 00:17:48.150 --> 00:17:49.290
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT FROM
  • 00:17:49.290 --> 00:17:51.140
  • A BROOM IN A --
  • 00:17:51.140 --> 00:17:52.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, LIKE --
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:53.230
  • THEY WOULD HAVE NO IDEA
  • 00:17:53.230 --> 00:17:55.190
  • ABOUT DISCERNMENT --
  • 00:17:55.190 --> 00:17:56.160
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:17:56.160 --> 00:17:58.080
  • IT'S LIKE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:17:59.290
  • GET FINANCIAL ADVICE
  • 00:17:59.290 --> 00:18:01.080
  • ABOUT A PURCHASE
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:01.280
  • THEY REALLY WANNA MAKE
  • 00:18:01.280 --> 00:18:02.250
  • FROM A BROKE PERSON.
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:04.270
  • THAT'S WHO THEY CALL.
  • 00:18:04.270 --> 00:18:06.190
  • SHOULD I BUY THIS CAR
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:07.250
  • AND HAVE THIS $800 CAR PAYMENT?
  • 00:18:07.250 --> 00:18:09.200
  • I'M GONNA CALL MY BROKE UNCLE.
  • 00:18:09.200 --> 00:18:11.020
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK?
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:11.260
  • "YEAH, YOU OUGHT TO GET IT.
  • 00:18:11.260 --> 00:18:12.260
  • THAT'S A GOOD INTEREST RATE."
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:20.140
  • NO, MAYBE YOU SHOULD
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:21.120
  • GO TO SOMEONE
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:21.290
  • THAT HAS DONE WELL,
  • 00:18:21.290 --> 00:18:23.110
  • THAT HAS MANAGED
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:24.030
  • AND STEWARD WELL, AND SAY,
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:25.140
  • "DO YOU THINK THIS IS WISE?"
  • 00:18:26.150 --> 00:18:29.150
  • BUT A LOT OF TIMES,
  • 00:18:29.150 --> 00:18:30.040
  • WE JUST WANNA HEAR WHAT PEOPLE
  • 00:18:30.040 --> 00:18:31.200
  • -- WE WANT PEOPLE TO TELL US.
  • 00:18:31.200 --> 00:18:34.200
  • AND SO, WHENEVER SOMEONE
  • 00:18:34.200 --> 00:18:35.130
  • IN OUR LIFE GOES,
  • 00:18:35.130 --> 00:18:37.280
  • "THAT'S AN UNWISE DECISION."
  • 00:18:37.280 --> 00:18:40.110
  • NOW, IF YOU GOT --
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:40.290
  • IF YOU HAVE GOOD
  • 00:18:40.290 --> 00:18:41.230
  • SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY,
  • 00:18:41.230 --> 00:18:42.170
  • THEY'RE GONNA LOVE YOU EVEN
  • 00:18:42.170 --> 00:18:43.050
  • WHEN YOU MAKE THE DUMB DECISION.
  • 00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:45.210
  • AND THEY'RE NOT GONNA RUB IT IN,
  • 00:18:45.210 --> 00:18:47.030
  • AND THEY'RE NOT GONNA BE LIKE,
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:47.260
  • "I TOLD YOU SO",
  • 00:18:47.260 --> 00:18:48.220
  • WHENEVER YOU COME BACK CRYING,
  • 00:18:48.220 --> 00:18:50.170
  • AND WHEN YOU COME BACK
  • 00:18:50.170 --> 00:18:51.060
  • BEING LIKE --
  • 00:18:51.060 --> 00:18:51.180
  • THEY'RE NOT --
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:52.030
  • THEY'RE JUST GONNA LOVE YOU
  • 00:18:52.030 --> 00:18:52.220
  • AND EMBRACE YOU,
  • 00:18:52.220 --> 00:18:53.060
  • IF THEY'RE GOOD,
  • 00:18:53.060 --> 00:18:54.100
  • IF THEY'RE HEALTHY,
  • 00:18:54.100 --> 00:18:55.250
  • IF THEY'RE SECURE
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:57.080
  • IN WHO GOD'S MADE 'EM TO BE.
  • 00:18:57.080 --> 00:19:00.050
  • BUT YOU NEED PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:01.180
  • THAT LOVE YOU SO MUCH
  • 00:19:02.020 --> 00:19:05.020
  • THAT THEY WANT
  • 00:19:05.020 --> 00:19:05.190
  • GOD'S BEST FOR YOU.
  • 00:19:06.120 --> 00:19:09.120
  • AND SO, STUDENTS,
  • 00:19:09.120 --> 00:19:11.000
  • YOU MAY BE DATING SOMEBODY,
  • 00:19:11.000 --> 00:19:13.100
  • AND YOU MAY HAVE SOME AUTHORITY
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:14.130
  • IN YOUR LIFE THAT LOVES GOD
  • 00:19:14.130 --> 00:19:16.130
  • AND KNOWS GOD,
  • 00:19:16.130 --> 00:19:17.210
  • AND THEY'RE GOING,
  • 00:19:17.210 --> 00:19:18.050
  • "THIS ISN'T GOOD."
  • 00:19:18.050 --> 00:19:19.060
  • YOU NEED TO LISTEN.
  • 00:19:19.060 --> 00:19:21.210
  • YOU NEED TO LISTEN.
  • 00:19:21.210 --> 00:19:24.060
  • I HAVE -- MAY THINK
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:27.080
  • YOU'RE CRAZY --
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:27.230
  • THINK I'M CRAZY.
  • 00:19:27.230 --> 00:19:28.260
  • I THINK I'M LIVING IN FAVOR.
  • 00:19:28.260 --> 00:19:30.190
  • YOU CAN THINK I'M CRAZY.
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:32.200
  • I HAVE ENDED RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:19:32.200 --> 00:19:33.290
  • BECAUSE SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:35.000
  • HAS COME TO ME AND SAID,
  • 00:19:35.000 --> 00:19:36.110
  • "THAT'S NOT A GOOD
  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:36.270
  • RELATIONSHIP FOR YOU."
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:38.250
  • IT'S NOT A GOOD --
  • 00:19:38.250 --> 00:19:39.150
  • THEY LOVE ME.
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:41.050
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:19:41.050 --> 00:19:43.030
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:19:43.030 --> 00:19:44.270
  • PEOPLE TRYING TO CONTROL
  • 00:19:44.270 --> 00:19:45.210
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:46.170
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT WISE COUNSEL.
  • 00:19:46.170 --> 00:19:49.170
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE
  • 00:19:49.170 --> 00:19:50.070
  • THAT HAVE LIVED LONGER THAN YOU,
  • 00:19:50.070 --> 00:19:51.170
  • THAT SEE THINGS
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:52.050
  • THAT YOU DON'T SEE,
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:53.110
  • THAT CAN SEE THE DESTRUCTION
  • 00:19:53.110 --> 00:19:54.230
  • DOWN THE ROAD
  • 00:19:54.230 --> 00:19:55.150
  • THAT YOU DON'T SEE.
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:57.110
  • TALKING ABOUT SOME WISE COUNSEL
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:19:59.270
  • IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:00.120
  • ARE YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:02.050
  • SO DOES IT CONTRADICT
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:03.160
  • THE WORD OF GOD?
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:05.170
  • WELL, IF IT DOES,
  • 00:20:05.170 --> 00:20:06.030
  • THAT'S EASY.
  • 00:20:06.030 --> 00:20:06.170
  • THAT AIN'T GOD.
  • 00:20:06.180 --> 00:20:09.180
  • BUT IF IT DOESN'T,
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:11.060
  • AND THERE'S REALLY NOT CLEAR,
  • 00:20:11.060 --> 00:20:12.070
  • 'CAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF
  • 00:20:12.070 --> 00:20:12.290
  • DECISIONS YOU MAKE THAT
  • 00:20:12.290 --> 00:20:14.110
  • YOU CAN'T BE LIKE,
  • 00:20:14.110 --> 00:20:15.080
  • "OH, 1 SAMUEL 2:3.
  • 00:20:15.080 --> 00:20:17.120
  • THERE IT IS.
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:18.160
  • BUY THE VOLVO."
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:20.080
  • THANK YOU, LORD.
  • 00:20:20.080 --> 00:20:21.170
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:20:21.170 --> 00:20:22.040
  • LIKE, IT'S NOT IN THERE.
  • 00:20:22.040 --> 00:20:24.260
  • SO IT DOESN'T CONTRADICT
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:25.200
  • THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 00:20:25.200 --> 00:20:27.010
  • WILL IT DRAW ME
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:27.160
  • CLOSER TO JESUS?
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:30.090
  • WELL, IF I MAKE THAT PURCHASE
  • 00:20:30.090 --> 00:20:32.090
  • AND GET THAT MONTHLY PAYMENT,
  • 00:20:32.090 --> 00:20:33.130
  • I CAN NO LONGER TITHE, SO YEAH,
  • 00:20:33.130 --> 00:20:34.290
  • THAT DRAWS YOU AWAY FROM JESUS.
  • 00:20:34.290 --> 00:20:37.150
  • DO YOU -- ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME?
  • 00:20:37.150 --> 00:20:39.230
  • WELL, YES, THAT DECISION --
  • 00:20:39.230 --> 00:20:40.200
  • WHATEVER THAT IS,
  • 00:20:40.200 --> 00:20:41.180
  • YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY,
  • 00:20:41.180 --> 00:20:42.170
  • I FEEL LIKE IT WILL.
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:43.070
  • IT'LL BRING ME CLOSER TO JESUS.
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:45.230
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:46.290
  • THEN DO PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:20:46.290 --> 00:20:48.120
  • IN AUTHORITY IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:20:48.120 --> 00:20:49.220
  • THAT HAVE --
  • 00:20:49.220 --> 00:20:50.280
  • THEY'RE SPIRITUAL PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:50.280 --> 00:20:53.040
  • THEY WALK WITH GOD.
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:55.040
  • THEY HAVE EVIDENCE OF IT
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:56.290
  • IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:20:56.290 --> 00:20:57.170
  • DON'T JUST GO ASK ANYBODY.
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:20:59.180
  • THEY GOT EVIDENCE OF IT
  • 00:20:59.180 --> 00:21:00.120
  • IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:21:00.120 --> 00:21:02.170
  • DO THEY GIVE ME THE GREEN LIGHT?
  • 00:21:03.160 --> 00:21:06.160
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:21:06.160 --> 00:21:07.180
  • THEN I'M FEELING GOOD,
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:08.070
  • THEN LET'S GO ONE MORE.
  • 00:21:08.070 --> 00:21:09.200
  • YOU GOT ONE MORE?
  • 00:21:09.200 --> 00:21:10.070
  • YOU READY?
  • 00:21:10.070 --> 00:21:12.050
  • NUMBER LAST,
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:14.270
  • DO I HAVE PEACE?
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:18.050
  • THIS IS LAST FOR A REASON.
  • 00:21:20.020 --> 00:21:23.020
  • WHAT YOU DON'T DO IS GO,
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:24.170
  • "I'VE REALLY PEACE ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:26.080
  • LET ME SEE IF GOD'S WORD
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:27.030
  • CONTRADICTS IT."
  • 00:21:27.030 --> 00:21:29.040
  • 'CAUSE YOU WILL READ SOMETHING
  • 00:21:29.040 --> 00:21:30.140
  • AND NOT BE ABLE TO RECEIVE IT,
  • 00:21:30.140 --> 00:21:31.270
  • BECAUSE YOU'LL GO,
  • 00:21:31.270 --> 00:21:33.080
  • "THAT AIN'T WHAT IT MEANS,
  • 00:21:33.080 --> 00:21:34.070
  • 'CAUSE I HAVE PEACE."
  • 00:21:36.210 --> 00:21:39.210
  • AND SOMEONE WILL GO,
  • 00:21:39.210 --> 00:21:41.140
  • "THAT'S NOT A GOOD DECISION,
  • 00:21:41.140 --> 00:21:42.170
  • THAT'S NOT WISE WHAT
  • 00:21:42.170 --> 00:21:43.110
  • YOU'RE DOING THERE."
  • 00:21:43.110 --> 00:21:44.090
  • "WELL, I HAVE PEACE.
  • 00:21:44.090 --> 00:21:46.000
  • I HAVE PEACE ABOUT IT."
  • 00:21:46.000 --> 00:21:47.040
  • GOT PEACE ABOUT IT,
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:47.220
  • GOT PEACE.
  • 00:21:47.220 --> 00:21:50.000
  • NO, THAT'S NOT WHERE YOU START.
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:51.250
  • AFTER YOU'VE GONE
  • 00:21:51.250 --> 00:21:52.090
  • THROUGH THE GRID,
  • 00:21:52.090 --> 00:21:53.220
  • THE LAST QUESTION YOU ASK IS
  • 00:21:53.220 --> 00:21:55.210
  • DO I FEEL SETTLED ABOUT THIS?
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:58.100
  • DO YOU NOTICE THAT
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:21:58.280
  • YOU DON'T START WITH YOU?
  • 00:22:00.040 --> 00:22:03.040
  • GOD'S WORD, JESUS,
  • 00:22:03.270 --> 00:22:06.270
  • OTHERS' ADVICE, THEN, YOU.
  • 00:22:08.260 --> 00:22:11.260
  • YOU SEE IT?
  • 00:22:11.260 --> 00:22:14.160
  • THEN YOU.
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:15.260
  • LOOK WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:22:15.260 --> 00:22:17.220
  • IT SAYS: "FOR GOD IS NOT
  • 00:22:17.220 --> 00:22:18.170
  • A GOD OF DISORDER,
  • 00:22:18.170 --> 00:22:21.130
  • BUT OF PEACE."
  • 00:22:21.130 --> 00:22:24.090
  • AS IN ALL THE CONGREGATION
  • 00:22:24.090 --> 00:22:25.130
  • TO THE SAINTS.
  • 00:22:25.130 --> 00:22:26.230
  • GOD'S NOT A GOD OF DISORDER.
  • 00:22:26.270 --> 00:22:29.270
  • HE'S NOT A GOD OF DISORDER.
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:33.020
  • FOR ME, PERSONALLY, SINCE --
  • 00:22:33.020 --> 00:22:35.100
  • FOR YEARS, BEEN APPLYING
  • 00:22:35.100 --> 00:22:36.110
  • THIS GRID IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:22:36.110 --> 00:22:38.270
  • I DON'T MAKE A MOVE
  • 00:22:38.270 --> 00:22:39.220
  • IF IT'S UNSETTLED IN HERE.
  • 00:22:40.200 --> 00:22:43.200
  • AND UNTIL I CAN --
  • 00:22:43.200 --> 00:22:44.230
  • IF I DON'T GET PEACE,
  • 00:22:44.230 --> 00:22:46.240
  • IF I CAN ANSWER EVERYTHING ELSE
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:48.070
  • AND I DON'T GET PEACE --
  • 00:22:48.070 --> 00:22:49.040
  • I HAD A DECISION THREE WEEKS --
  • 00:22:49.040 --> 00:22:50.260
  • A MONTH AGO.
  • 00:22:50.260 --> 00:22:53.100
  • AND MY EXECUTIVE TEAM KNOWS,
  • 00:22:53.100 --> 00:22:55.200
  • I WAS IN THEIR OFFICE EVERY DAY,
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:56.210
  • GOING, "I DON'T KNOW,
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:57.290
  • MAYBE WE JUST NEED TO DO THIS.
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:22:59.030
  • MAYBE WE NEED --
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:22:59.180
  • MAYBE I NEED
  • 00:22:59.180 --> 00:23:00.090
  • TO MAKE THIS DECISION."
  • 00:23:00.090 --> 00:23:00.270
  • AND THEY'RE LIKE,
  • 00:23:00.270 --> 00:23:02.120
  • "WELL, HERE'S THE PROS,
  • 00:23:02.120 --> 00:23:03.090
  • HERE'S THE CONS.
  • 00:23:03.090 --> 00:23:04.100
  • PASTOR, WHATEVER YOU THINK."
  • 00:23:04.100 --> 00:23:06.010
  • AND JEREMY FINALLY SAID,
  • 00:23:06.070 --> 00:23:09.070
  • HE GOES, "YOU NEED JUST
  • 00:23:09.070 --> 00:23:10.200
  • TO FOLLOW THAT THING IN YOU,
  • 00:23:10.200 --> 00:23:11.250
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT TALKING TO YOU,
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:13.180
  • BECAUSE IT'S NEVER LED US
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:14.160
  • WRONG AS A CHURCH."
  • 00:23:14.160 --> 00:23:16.260
  • AND I JUST FINALLY WAS LIKE,
  • 00:23:16.260 --> 00:23:18.200
  • I CAN'T GET PEACE.
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:21.140
  • IT DIDN'T CONTRADICT
  • 00:23:21.140 --> 00:23:22.060
  • WHAT GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:23:22.060 --> 00:23:23.070
  • IT WASN'T GONNA TAKE ME
  • 00:23:23.070 --> 00:23:24.000
  • AWAY FROM JESUS.
  • 00:23:24.000 --> 00:23:26.160
  • IT COULD'VE BENEFITED
  • 00:23:26.160 --> 00:23:27.010
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:23:27.220 --> 00:23:30.220
  • THOSE IN AUTHORITY THOUGHT --
  • 00:23:30.220 --> 00:23:32.130
  • GAVE ME SOME COUNSEL,
  • 00:23:32.130 --> 00:23:33.030
  • AND SAID,
  • 00:23:33.030 --> 00:23:33.170
  • "COULD BE A GREAT THING."
  • 00:23:33.170 --> 00:23:35.190
  • NOBODY WAS --
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:36.230
  • BUT I COULDN'T GET SETTLED.
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:39.120
  • I COULDN'T GET PEACE.
  • 00:23:39.120 --> 00:23:42.000
  • AND SO, I SAID NO.
  • 00:23:42.000 --> 00:23:43.200
  • SOON AS I SAID NO,
  • 00:23:43.200 --> 00:23:44.160
  • PEACE FLOODED MY HEART.
  • 00:23:45.150 --> 00:23:48.150
  • AND I HAVEN'T LOOKED BACK,
  • 00:23:48.150 --> 00:23:49.180
  • HAVEN'T THOUGHT ABOUT IT AGAIN.
  • 00:23:49.180 --> 00:23:51.130
  • HAVEN'T SECOND-GUESSED IT.
  • 00:23:52.090 --> 00:23:55.090
  • HAVEN'T THOUGHT MAYBE
  • 00:23:55.090 --> 00:23:55.260
  • I MADE THE WRONG --
  • 00:23:55.260 --> 00:23:56.160
  • NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT AGAIN,
  • 00:23:56.160 --> 00:23:57.070
  • HONESTLY, 'TIL JUST NOW.
  • 00:23:57.100 --> 00:24:00.120
  • 'CAUSE PEACE --
  • 00:24:00.120 --> 00:24:01.240
  • AS THE OLD SONG,

  • "PEACE, LIKE A RIVER"
  • 00:24:02.100 --> 00:24:03.100
  • FLOODED MY HEART.

  • SOON AS I MADE THE DECISION.
  • 00:24:05.070 --> 00:24:08.070
  • I WOKE UP RESTLESS
  • 00:24:08.070 --> 00:24:09.050
  • IN THE NIGHT BEFORE I MADE IT,
  • 00:24:09.050 --> 00:24:10.200
  • I WOKE UP,
  • 00:24:10.200 --> 00:24:11.060
  • IT WAS THE FIRST THING
  • 00:24:11.060 --> 00:24:11.260
  • ON MY MIND.
  • 00:24:11.260 --> 00:24:12.260
  • I JUST KEPT -- I NEED --
  • 00:24:12.260 --> 00:24:15.060
  • SOON AS I SAID NO.
  • 00:24:15.060 --> 00:24:17.220
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE PEACE,
  • 00:24:17.220 --> 00:24:18.130
  • DON'T DO IT.
  • 00:24:18.130 --> 00:24:19.040
  • IT AIN'T GOD.
  • 00:24:19.170 --> 00:24:22.170
  • HE'S NOT A GOD OF DISORDER.

  • -- IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:24:56.080 --> 00:24:58.280
  • IT DIDN'T CONTRADICT GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:24:59.070 --> 00:25:02.090
  • IT WOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN ME --
  • 00:25:02.090 --> 00:25:03.120
  • IT WOULD'VE DRAWN ME
  • 00:25:03.120 --> 00:25:04.200
  • CLOSE TO JESUS.
  • 00:25:04.200 --> 00:25:06.130
  • IT -- NOBODY AROUND ME
  • 00:25:06.130 --> 00:25:07.160
  • WAS SAYING IT'S A BAD IDEA.
  • 00:25:07.270 --> 00:25:10.270
  • BUT I DIDN'T HAVE PEACE.
  • 00:25:10.270 --> 00:25:13.110
  • AND A PEACE THAT
  • 00:25:13.110 --> 00:25:13.270
  • TRANSCENDS UNDERSTANDING,
  • 00:25:13.270 --> 00:25:16.120
  • CAN'T EXPLAIN IT TO YOU.
  • 00:25:16.120 --> 00:25:19.020
  • MAYBE IN HINDSIGHT,
  • 00:25:19.020 --> 00:25:19.240
  • GOD WILL REVEAL TO ME WHY.
  • 00:25:19.240 --> 00:25:20.280
  • HE HASN'T RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:25:20.280 --> 00:25:22.140
  • BUT I HAVE A PEACE NOW
  • 00:25:22.140 --> 00:25:23.090
  • THAT TRANSCENDS
  • 00:25:23.090 --> 00:25:23.260
  • UNDERSTANDING,
  • 00:25:23.260 --> 00:25:26.050
  • WILL FILL YOUR HEART
  • 00:25:26.050 --> 00:25:26.230
  • AND YOUR MINDS,
  • 00:25:26.230 --> 00:25:28.120
  • IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:25:28.180 --> 00:25:31.180
  • WE'VE BEEN LEARNING
  • 00:25:31.180 --> 00:25:32.070
  • THAT GOD SPEAKS.
  • 00:25:32.070 --> 00:25:34.260
  • HE'S STILL SPEAKING.
  • 00:25:34.260 --> 00:25:36.040
  • SPEAKING NOW.
  • 00:25:36.040 --> 00:25:38.230
  • AND WE'VE LEARNED THAT
  • 00:25:38.230 --> 00:25:39.100
  • HOW YOU SEE HIM
  • 00:25:39.120 --> 00:25:42.120
  • REALLY DETERMINES
  • 00:25:42.120 --> 00:25:43.090
  • HOW YOU RECEIVE FROM HIM, RIGHT?
  • 00:25:43.230 --> 00:25:46.230
  • NOT ONLY IS HE SPEAKING
  • 00:25:46.230 --> 00:25:47.260
  • AND WANTS YOUR HEART
  • 00:25:47.260 --> 00:25:48.120
  • TO BE RIGHT, BUT MAN,
  • 00:25:48.230 --> 00:25:51.230
  • HE'S TALKING,
  • 00:25:51.230 --> 00:25:52.130
  • IF YOU'LL LISTEN TODAY,
  • 00:25:52.170 --> 00:25:55.170
  • I HOPE YOU NEVER FORGET
  • 00:25:55.170 --> 00:25:56.220
  • THESE FILTERS.
  • 00:25:56.220 --> 00:25:59.170
  • I HOPE FOREVER, WHEN YOU GO,
  • 00:25:59.170 --> 00:26:00.270
  • DOES THAT CONTRADICT
  • 00:26:00.270 --> 00:26:01.200
  • THE WORD OF GOD?
  • 00:26:01.200 --> 00:26:02.140
  • I JUST HOPE IT BECOMES
  • 00:26:02.140 --> 00:26:03.050
  • LIKE REACTIONARY.
  • 00:26:03.050 --> 00:26:05.010
  • WHEN YOU THINK SOMETHING,
  • 00:26:05.010 --> 00:26:05.270
  • IS THAT IN LINE WITH GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:26:05.270 --> 00:26:07.120
  • WHEN SOMEONE SAYS,
  • 00:26:07.120 --> 00:26:08.000
  • IS THAT IN LINE WITH GOD'S WORD?
  • 00:26:08.000 --> 00:26:09.070
  • IS THAT WHAT GOD'S WORD SAID?
  • 00:26:09.150 --> 00:26:12.150
  • DOES THAT DRAW ME
  • 00:26:12.150 --> 00:26:13.040
  • CLOSER TO JESUS?
  • 00:26:13.040 --> 00:26:14.180
  • DO PEOPLE IN AUTHORITY AROUND ME
  • 00:26:14.180 --> 00:26:16.210
  • GIVE THE GREEN LIGHT ON THAT?
  • 00:26:16.210 --> 00:26:18.290
  • AND DO I HAVE A PEACE?
  • 00:26:18.290 --> 00:26:20.290
  • DO I HAVE A PEACE
  • 00:26:20.290 --> 00:26:21.190
