  • 00:00:42.190 --> 00:00:43.140
  • This is Rabbi Schneider.
  • 00:00:43.140 --> 00:00:44.230
  • Welcome today to Discovering
  • 00:00:44.230 --> 00:00:46.200
  • the Jewish Jesus.

  • In Jesus name amen and amen.
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:55.270
  • You know sometimes people
  • 00:00:55.270 --> 00:00:56.180
  • ask why I do this and it
  • 00:00:56.180 --> 00:00:58.080
  • represents the Word of God,
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:01:00.150
  • living and active and the
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:02.290
  • scripture says, "it's
  • 00:01:02.290 --> 00:01:04.060
  • sharper than a two edged
  • 00:01:04.060 --> 00:01:06.060
  • We're continuing today in a
  • 00:01:07.070 --> 00:01:08.090
  • Biblical Benedictions.
  • 00:01:09.280 --> 00:01:11.080
  • I love the title of the
  • 00:01:11.080 --> 00:01:12.050
  • series.
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:13.020
  • Try saying Biblical
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:14.100
  • Benedictions as fast as you
  • 00:01:14.100 --> 00:01:16.020
  • can, five times in a row.
  • 00:01:16.020 --> 00:01:17.230
  • into a tongue twister.
  • 00:01:18.260 --> 00:01:20.050
  • But this is a really
  • 00:01:20.050 --> 00:01:21.210
  • important word, because
  • 00:01:21.210 --> 00:01:24.020
  • represent God's blessing
  • 00:01:27.060 --> 00:01:30.060
  • over the lives of His
  • 00:01:30.060 --> 00:01:31.180
  • beloved ones.
  • 00:01:31.180 --> 00:01:32.270
  • And so I want to encourage

  • active God is in your life

  • 00:01:46.020 --> 00:01:47.190
  • Now this is the third
  • 00:01:47.190 --> 00:01:48.160
  • encourage you to go to our

  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:52.110
  • series if you missed them.

  • You can watch them on
  • 00:01:54.170 --> 00:01:55.110
  • Youtube as well.
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:56.140
  • I want to continue straight
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:01:57.160
  • Biblical benediction.
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:00.270
  • We're gonna go to Hebrews
  • 00:02:00.270 --> 00:02:02.090
  • chapter 13, verse 20 and 21.
  • 00:02:04.010 --> 00:02:07.010
  • Hebrews 13, verse 20 and 21.
  • 00:02:07.010 --> 00:02:09.190
  • The grass withers and the
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:10.090
  • flowers fade, but the Word
  • 00:02:10.090 --> 00:02:11.110
  • of God abides forever.
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:12.140
  • Hear beloved one the Word of
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:13.190
  • God.
  • 00:02:13.190 --> 00:02:14.290
  • "Now the God of peace, who
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:16.120
  • brought up from the dead the
  • 00:02:16.120 --> 00:02:17.200
  • great Shepherd of the sheep
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:19.020
  • through the blood of the
  • 00:02:19.020 --> 00:02:19.260
  • eternal covenant, even Jesus
  • 00:02:19.260 --> 00:02:21.230
  • our Lord," get it now,
  • 00:02:21.230 --> 00:02:23.160
  • "equip you in every good
  • 00:02:23.160 --> 00:02:26.050
  • thing to do His will,
  • 00:02:26.050 --> 00:02:28.060
  • working in us that which is
  • 00:02:28.060 --> 00:02:30.190
  • pleasing in His sight,
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:32.070
  • through Jesus Christ, to
  • 00:02:32.070 --> 00:02:33.130
  • whom be the glory forever
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:35.000
  • and ever.
  • 00:02:35.000 --> 00:02:36.130
  • Amen."
  • 00:02:36.130 --> 00:02:37.250
  • Now before I get right in to
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:39.070
  • the subject matter, when I
  • 00:02:39.070 --> 00:02:40.290
  • benediction is a blessing
  • 00:02:42.290 --> 00:02:45.150
  • bestowed by God on His
  • 00:02:45.150 --> 00:02:47.220
  • people.
  • 00:02:47.220 --> 00:02:48.280
  • They often times take place
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:50.040
  • at the end of one of the
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:51.030
  • books of the Bible, but not
  • 00:02:51.030 --> 00:02:52.100
  • always.
  • 00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:53.120
  • Sometimes if you're part of
  • 00:02:53.120 --> 00:02:54.160
  • a conservative congregation
  • 00:02:54.160 --> 00:02:56.100
  • or a more traditional
  • 00:02:56.100 --> 00:02:57.100
  • congregation, your pastor or
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:02:59.060
  • priest will end the service
  • 00:02:59.060 --> 00:03:00.250
  • with a benediction.
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:02.090
  • Once again, a benediction is
  • 00:03:02.090 --> 00:03:04.110
  • bestowed upon His people.
  • 00:03:06.130 --> 00:03:08.030
  • It can take place in the
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:09.040
  • middle of a book of the
  • 00:03:09.040 --> 00:03:10.050
  • Bible as well.
  • 00:03:10.050 --> 00:03:11.120
  • Now in the book of Hebrews,
  • 00:03:11.120 --> 00:03:12.250
  • we're going towards the end
  • 00:03:12.250 --> 00:03:14.010
  • of this book and looking at
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:15.140
  • the subject matter of once
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:16.180
  • again, Hebrews 13:20-21.
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:19.210
  • Because I have already
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:20.230
  • spoken about the fact that
  • 00:03:20.230 --> 00:03:22.120
  • God is a God of peace in a
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:24.230
  • previous episode on this
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:26.100
  • series, I'm gonna focus more
  • 00:03:26.100 --> 00:03:28.270
  • on some of the other content
  • 00:03:28.270 --> 00:03:30.150
  • in this particular
  • 00:03:30.150 --> 00:03:31.160
  • benediction.
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:32.180
  • I want to draw your
  • 00:03:32.180 --> 00:03:33.060
  • attention to verse number
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.170
  • 21.
  • 00:03:34.170 --> 00:03:35.200
  • Paul is speaking, or the
  • 00:03:35.200 --> 00:03:37.070
  • author of Hebrews is
  • 00:03:37.070 --> 00:03:38.190
  • speaking over God's people,
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:41.070
  • declaring that the God of
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:42.180
  • peace and here we go, would
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:44.210
  • equip us, listen, to do His
  • 00:03:44.210 --> 00:03:46.280
  • will.
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:47.170
  • So let me read it again and
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:48.210
  • I want you to particular pay
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:50.030
  • attention when I say that
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:51.200
  • word equip.
  • 00:03:51.200 --> 00:03:53.160
  • "Now the God of peace, who
  • 00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:55.010
  • brought up from the dead the
  • 00:03:55.010 --> 00:03:56.010
  • great Shepherd of the sheep
  • 00:03:56.010 --> 00:03:57.210
  • through the blood of the
  • 00:03:57.210 --> 00:03:58.110
  • eternal covenant, even Jesus
  • 00:03:58.110 --> 00:04:00.250
  • our Lord," here we go,
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:02.120
  • "equip you in every good
  • 00:04:02.120 --> 00:04:05.030
  • thing to do His will,
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:07.130
  • working in us that which is
  • 00:04:07.130 --> 00:04:09.110
  • pleasing in His sight."
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:11.140
  • So I want to focus here on
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:13.230
  • this equipping that takes
  • 00:04:13.230 --> 00:04:15.120
  • place in our lives by the
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:16.280
  • Spirit of God, through the
  • 00:04:16.280 --> 00:04:18.090
  • Lord Jesus who shed His
  • 00:04:18.090 --> 00:04:20.000
  • blood that we would be
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:21.120
  • grafted in to the eternal
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:22.250
  • covenant.
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:24.100
  • Now it says here that this
  • 00:04:24.100 --> 00:04:26.030
  • equipping, once again, this
  • 00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:27.270
  • equipping of God to you,
  • 00:04:28.060 --> 00:04:31.060
  • takes place because of the
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:33.010
  • blood that Jesus shed, that
  • 00:04:33.250 --> 00:04:36.250
  • finished and accomplished
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:38.130
  • for us what is referred to
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:40.120
  • as, listen now, the eternal
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:42.150
  • covenant.
  • 00:04:42.150 --> 00:04:44.120
  • blood of Jesus is the seal
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:49.170
  • of God's covenant with His
  • 00:04:49.170 --> 00:04:51.120
  • people.
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:52.230
  • has made with us was
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:55.190
  • prophesied in the Hebrew
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:57.150
  • Bible, in the book of
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:58.150
  • Jeremiah and Ezekiel, when
  • 00:04:58.150 --> 00:05:00.120
  • would come when He would
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:03.240
  • take out our heart of stone,
  • 00:05:03.240 --> 00:05:06.080
  • to Him and give us instead a
  • 00:05:07.180 --> 00:05:09.130
  • heart of flesh.
  • 00:05:09.130 --> 00:05:10.200
  • And that sometimes is
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:11.180
  • confusing when we read there
  • 00:05:11.180 --> 00:05:13.010
  • that God would give us a
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:13.220
  • heart of flesh, because
  • 00:05:13.220 --> 00:05:15.040
  • often times the word flesh
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:16.140
  • in scripture is used to
  • 00:05:16.140 --> 00:05:18.000
  • represent, you know the
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.060
  • lower animal nature.
  • 00:05:19.060 --> 00:05:20.150
  • But in this particular
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:21.240
  • prophetic portion in the
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:22.240
  • Hebrew Bible, when the
  • 00:05:22.240 --> 00:05:24.150
  • scripture says that God
  • 00:05:24.150 --> 00:05:25.140
  • would take out our heart of
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:26.170
  • stone and replace with a
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:28.070
  • heart of flesh, God is not
  • 00:05:28.070 --> 00:05:29.270
  • speaking there in terms of
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:31.250
  • flesh being part of our
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:33.080
  • animal nature that needs to
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:34.070
  • be overcome; but He's
  • 00:05:34.070 --> 00:05:35.140
  • speaking of a heart of flesh
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:37.030
  • that is sensitive.
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:38.030
  • In other words, a heart of
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:38.280
  • stone doesn't feel anything,
  • 00:05:38.280 --> 00:05:41.130
  • but flesh if you pinch
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:42.170
  • flesh, you'll feel that.
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:44.110
  • If you touch flesh you'll
  • 00:05:44.110 --> 00:05:45.150
  • feel it.
  • 00:05:45.150 --> 00:05:46.100
  • So God is saying, "I'm gonna
  • 00:05:46.100 --> 00:05:47.110
  • take out your hard heart,
  • 00:05:47.110 --> 00:05:49.080
  • your heart of stone and I'm
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:50.260
  • gonna give you a heart of
  • 00:05:50.260 --> 00:05:51.150
  • flesh.
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:52.090
  • I'm gonna give you a heart
  • 00:05:52.090 --> 00:05:53.060
  • of flesh that's sensitive to
  • 00:05:53.060 --> 00:05:54.170
  • Me."
  • 00:05:54.170 --> 00:05:55.220
  • And then we also read that
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:56.220
  • this eternal covenant would
  • 00:05:56.220 --> 00:05:58.130
  • sprinkle us and make us
  • 00:05:58.130 --> 00:06:00.040
  • clean and of course we read
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:02.060
  • washes us and makes us white
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:06.050
  • as snow.
  • 00:06:06.050 --> 00:06:07.080
  • foundation of the fact that
  • 00:06:08.110 --> 00:06:10.010
  • this equipping that God does
  • 00:06:10.010 --> 00:06:12.030
  • in our lives by His Spirit,
  • 00:06:12.030 --> 00:06:14.020
  • can only take place, because
  • 00:06:14.020 --> 00:06:16.090
  • Jesus shed His blood,
  • 00:06:16.090 --> 00:06:19.080
  • sealing God's eternal
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:20.260
  • covenant.
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:21.240
  • And God's eternal covenant
  • 00:06:21.240 --> 00:06:23.120
  • was a covenant of
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:24.220
  • redemption, where by He
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:26.150
  • would purchase back to
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:27.290
  • Himself His people that had
  • 00:06:27.290 --> 00:06:30.120
  • fallen in the great fall
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:32.040
  • that took place in the
  • 00:06:32.040 --> 00:06:33.020
  • Garden of Eden.
  • 00:06:33.020 --> 00:06:34.130
  • So now that Jesus has
  • 00:06:34.130 --> 00:06:35.130
  • purchased us back by His
  • 00:06:35.130 --> 00:06:37.100
  • blood and brought us in to
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:39.020
  • an eternal covenant.
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:41.020
  • Remember Jesus said when He
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:42.110
  • celebrated Passover and
  • 00:06:42.110 --> 00:06:43.250
  • instituted communion of the
  • 00:06:43.250 --> 00:06:44.270
  • "This is my blood," when He
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:47.240
  • lifted up the Passover wine
  • 00:06:47.240 --> 00:06:48.280
  • of the covenant.
  • 00:06:48.280 --> 00:06:50.270
  • into this covenant, Jew and
  • 00:06:52.070 --> 00:06:53.240
  • Gentile are part of this
  • 00:06:53.240 --> 00:06:55.160
  • eternal covenant, through
  • 00:06:55.160 --> 00:06:56.240
  • the blood of the great
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:57.210
  • Shepherd of the sheep,
  • 00:06:57.210 --> 00:06:58.180
  • Yeshua.
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:06:59.210
  • And as a result of being in
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:00.260
  • this covenant, this covenant
  • 00:07:00.260 --> 00:07:02.290
  • of love, this covenant where
  • 00:07:02.290 --> 00:07:04.180
  • by now we have become one
  • 00:07:04.180 --> 00:07:07.080
  • with the Lord in terms of
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:08.080
  • our union with Him through

  • His Son, as a result of this
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:12.030

  • work.
  • 00:07:17.180 --> 00:07:18.130
  • Now I take great comfort in
  • 00:07:18.130 --> 00:07:19.280
  • this, because I have so many
  • 00:07:19.280 --> 00:07:21.290
  • responsibilities to continue
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:23.230
  • to feed God's people, to

  • When I say simply, I don't

  • 00:07:49.160 --> 00:07:51.020
  • assignment.
  • 00:07:51.020 --> 00:07:52.030
  • I mean what greater
  • 00:07:52.030 --> 00:07:52.250

  • strength.
  • 00:09:09.290 --> 00:09:10.180
  • You want to release wisdom.

  • depend on you and it doesn't
  • 00:09:38.060 --> 00:09:39.120

  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:45.290
  • a shadow of the church,
  • 00:11:45.290 --> 00:11:47.210
  • who's a shadow of all God's
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:49.000
  • people, cries out to the king,
  • 00:11:49.000 --> 00:11:51.220
  • and King Jesus, and she says,
  • 00:11:53.030 --> 00:11:55.110
  • mine. I am His and He is mine."
  • 00:11:58.170 --> 00:12:01.190
  • And what I think is so
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:02.210
  • powerful and beautiful
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:04.130
  • about this is that she is
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:06.020
  • completely identifying
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:08.150
  • with God to be the one that
  • 00:12:08.150 --> 00:12:10.020
  • determines in her own heart
  • 00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:11.240
  • and mind who she is.
  • 00:12:11.240 --> 00:12:13.150
  • In other words, let me
  • 00:12:13.150 --> 00:12:14.070
  • say it this way.
  • 00:12:14.070 --> 00:12:15.140
  • We get our identity by the
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:17.260
  • one that we identify with.
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:20.090
  • In other words, many children
  • 00:12:20.090 --> 00:12:21.180
  • of course get their identity
  • 00:12:21.180 --> 00:12:23.150
  • from their parents, from
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:24.250
  • their father or their mother.
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:26.180
  • And this can be well and good.
  • 00:12:26.180 --> 00:12:28.010
  • But Jesus said that we must
  • 00:12:28.010 --> 00:12:29.230
  • love Him even more than we love
  • 00:12:29.230 --> 00:12:32.010
  • our father and mother. Why?
  • 00:12:32.010 --> 00:12:33.250
  • Because we need to identify
  • 00:12:33.250 --> 00:12:35.220
  • with Father God as the source
  • 00:12:35.220 --> 00:12:37.250
  • of understanding who we are
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:40.120
  • in order to fully enter into
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:41.250
  • He is and who we are.
  • 00:12:43.070 --> 00:12:45.210
  • Again she said, "I am His
  • 00:12:45.210 --> 00:12:48.000
  • and He is mine."
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:49.080
  • He was the source, God was
  • 00:12:49.080 --> 00:12:51.030
  • I want to encourage you today,
  • 00:12:52.220 --> 00:12:54.080
  • you're not a doctor, you're
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:55.160

  • an airline pilot, you're

  • man right now that is going
  • 00:13:32.230 --> 00:13:33.220
  • before me into the mission
  • 00:13:33.220 --> 00:13:34.210
  • field and he's gone to
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:36.020
  • And he's now in Africa
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:39.140
  • getting ready to, to welcome
  • 00:13:39.140 --> 00:13:41.230
  • us there as we come to

  • preach the Gospel in a
  • 00:13:43.100 --> 00:13:44.100
  • little over a week.
  • 00:13:44.100 --> 00:13:45.160
  • And he's had to deal with a
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:46.180
  • on the mission field and
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:49.020
  • he's there alone right now
  • 00:13:49.020 --> 00:13:50.250
  • and it feels very draining.
  • 00:13:50.250 --> 00:13:52.140
  • But you know what?
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:53.260
  • It's such a confidence to
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:55.080
  • know for him and for me,
  • 00:13:55.080 --> 00:13:57.030
  • that even though it's a
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:13:58.120
  • strong assignment and it
  • 00:13:58.120 --> 00:14:01.030
  • demands a lot, even though
  • 00:14:01.030 --> 00:14:02.140
  • he feels depleted at times,
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:04.050
  • it's such a blessing to know
  • 00:14:04.050 --> 00:14:06.140
  • and such confidence it gives
  • 00:14:06.140 --> 00:14:07.190
  • to know that God's equipping
  • 00:14:07.190 --> 00:14:08.260
  • him.
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:09.230
  • God is sufficient.
  • 00:14:09.230 --> 00:14:11.140
  • "Now may the God of peace
  • 00:14:11.140 --> 00:14:12.150
  • sanctify you entirely" and
  • 00:14:12.150 --> 00:14:13.250
  • then in verse number 21 of
  • 00:14:13.250 --> 00:14:15.210
  • Hebrews 13, "and equip you
  • 00:14:15.210 --> 00:14:18.130
  • every good thing to do His
  • 00:14:18.130 --> 00:14:20.220
  • will, working in us that
  • 00:14:20.220 --> 00:14:23.100
  • which is pleasing in His
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:24.100
  • sight."
  • 00:14:24.100 --> 00:14:25.200
  • Once again, we're looking to
  • 00:14:25.200 --> 00:14:27.190
  • Father to work within us, to
  • 00:14:28.050 --> 00:14:31.050
  • within me, get it now
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:33.130
  • church, what is pleasing in
  • 00:14:33.130 --> 00:14:36.040
  • His sight.
  • 00:14:36.040 --> 00:14:37.020
  • It just takes all the weight
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:38.000
  • off.
  • 00:14:38.000 --> 00:14:39.010
  • It's not up to me to do it
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:40.130
  • to do it all, but God is the
  • 00:14:42.140 --> 00:14:44.120
  • one, listen now, that's
  • 00:14:44.120 --> 00:14:45.230
  • working in you and working
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:47.190
  • in me that which will bring
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:49.270
  • forth from us what is
  • 00:14:49.270 --> 00:14:52.120
  • pleasing in His sight.
  • 00:14:52.120 --> 00:14:54.010
  • I'm telling ya, to believe
  • 00:14:54.010 --> 00:14:55.090
  • this and to receive this, it
  • 00:14:55.090 --> 00:14:56.290
  • takes the weight of the
  • 00:14:56.290 --> 00:14:57.180
  • world off your shoulders.
  • 00:14:57.180 --> 00:14:59.050
  • If we feel that it's up to
  • 00:14:59.050 --> 00:15:00.130
  • us, that we've always got to
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:01.240
  • be up to the task, that
  • 00:15:01.240 --> 00:15:03.100
  • we've always got to be on an
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:04.120
  • emotional high, that we've
  • 00:15:04.120 --> 00:15:05.270
  • always you know got to be in
  • 00:15:05.270 --> 00:15:08.010
  • a positive mood, that we've,
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:09.140
  • you know if we think it all
  • 00:15:09.140 --> 00:15:11.000
  • depends on us, that's a
  • 00:15:11.000 --> 00:15:12.080
  • crushing weight.
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:13.290
  • But to realize that it
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:15.040
  • doesn't all depend on us
  • 00:15:15.040 --> 00:15:17.160
  • even though we have to
  • 00:15:17.160 --> 00:15:18.100
  • depend on God, but it
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:20.000
  • depends on God, listen now,
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:22.060
  • who is working in you and in
  • 00:15:22.060 --> 00:15:25.040
  • me what is pleasing, hear
  • 00:15:25.040 --> 00:15:28.020
  • me, in His sight.
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:30.020
  • So let me read it again.
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:31.120
  • "Now the God of peace who
  • 00:15:31.120 --> 00:15:32.170
  • brought up from the dead the
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:33.110
  • great Shepherd of the sheep
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:34.250
  • through the blood of the
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:35.140
  • eternal covenant, even Jesus
  • 00:15:35.140 --> 00:15:37.030
  • our Lord equip you in every
  • 00:15:37.030 --> 00:15:39.260
  • good thing to do His will,
  • 00:15:39.260 --> 00:15:42.110
  • working in us that which is
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:44.080
  • pleasing in His sight."
  • 00:15:44.080 --> 00:15:46.210
  • Now I want you to focus on
  • 00:15:46.210 --> 00:15:47.270
  • another little phrase that's
  • 00:15:47.270 --> 00:15:49.060
  • part of what I just read.
  • 00:15:49.060 --> 00:15:51.030
  • it, to do His will.
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:57.100
  • Have you ever been in a
  • 00:15:57.100 --> 00:15:58.160
  • relationship was a challenge
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:01.260
  • and yet you know you have to
  • 00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:03.220
  • love.
  • 00:16:03.220 --> 00:16:04.260
  • Maybe you're just
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:05.180
  • emotionally drained and yet
  • 00:16:05.180 --> 00:16:06.260
  • you, you know when we get
  • 00:16:06.260 --> 00:16:08.180
  • drained sometimes you know
  • 00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:10.240
  • we sink down into the flesh
  • 00:16:10.240 --> 00:16:12.250
  • and we become irritable.
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:13.280
  • All of us know what that
  • 00:16:13.280 --> 00:16:14.280
  • feels like.
  • 00:16:14.280 --> 00:16:16.160
  • Isn't it an awesome thing to
  • 00:16:16.160 --> 00:16:17.170
  • know you may be stepping
  • 00:16:17.170 --> 00:16:19.020
  • into a situation where you
  • 00:16:19.020 --> 00:16:20.210
  • have to be a source of
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:22.120
  • blessing to the people
  • 00:16:22.120 --> 00:16:23.230
  • around you, like I said just
  • 00:16:23.230 --> 00:16:24.240
  • a moment ago, and you don't
  • 00:16:24.240 --> 00:16:26.230
  • feel that you're gonna be
  • 00:16:26.230 --> 00:16:27.160
  • able to.
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:29.030
  • But the Word of God says
  • 00:16:29.030 --> 00:16:31.000
  • that God is equipping us,
  • 00:16:31.000 --> 00:16:32.120
  • listen now, to do His will.
  • 00:16:34.030 --> 00:16:37.030
  • Every morning, every
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:39.010
  • morning, get it now with me,
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:40.200
  • every morning you and I can
  • 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:42.210
  • wake up and we can trust God
  • 00:16:43.250 --> 00:16:46.250
  • to work within us that which
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:49.030
  • is necessary to do His will
  • 00:16:49.030 --> 00:16:52.030
  • that day.
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:53.030
  • What a joy to realize that
  • 00:16:53.030 --> 00:16:55.040
  • regardless of what we feel
  • 00:16:55.040 --> 00:16:56.090
  • like, we can trust in the
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:57.280
  • Word of God.
  • 00:16:57.280 --> 00:16:59.220
  • We can trust in God Himself
  • 00:16:59.220 --> 00:17:01.240
  • to work within us that which
  • 00:17:01.240 --> 00:17:04.120
  • needs to be imparted to us,
  • 00:17:04.120 --> 00:17:06.140
  • so that we can please Him,
  • 00:17:06.140 --> 00:17:07.240
  • get it now church, and do
  • 00:17:07.240 --> 00:17:10.080
  • You see if you depend on God
  • 00:17:10.290 --> 00:17:13.170
  • you will not fail.
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:15.100
  • If you depend on God you
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:17.090
  • will bear much fruit.
  • 00:17:17.090 --> 00:17:19.090
  • fruit is humility and
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:26.110
  • humility is depending on
  • 00:17:26.110 --> 00:17:28.150
  • God.
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:29.190
  • And as you depend on God and
  • 00:17:29.190 --> 00:17:31.120
  • as I depend on God to work
  • 00:17:31.120 --> 00:17:33.120
  • within us that which will
  • 00:17:33.120 --> 00:17:35.080
  • equip us to do His will and
  • 00:17:35.080 --> 00:17:37.190
  • that which is pleasing in
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:38.170
  • His sight, as we depend on
  • 00:17:38.170 --> 00:17:40.050
  • Him we're gonna receive
  • 00:17:40.050 --> 00:17:41.200
  • everything we need to walk
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:43.040
  • in power, to love Him, to do
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:45.110
  • His will and to please Him.
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:48.090
  • You see, when we depend on
  • 00:17:48.090 --> 00:17:49.200
  • the Lord, the roots of our

  • soul grow deep in God's
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:53.280
  • Spirit.
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:55.130
  • Blessed are the meek.
  • 00:17:55.130 --> 00:17:57.000
  • Blessed are those who depend
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:17:58.090
  • on the Lord.
  • 00:17:58.090 --> 00:17:59.030
  • Blessed are those that are
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:00.190
  • humble.
  • 00:18:00.190 --> 00:18:01.250
  • You see, Paul learned a
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:02.260
  • great lesson.
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:04.000
  • Remember Paul was
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.030
  • struggling.
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:05.240
  • thorn in the flesh.
  • 00:18:07.010 --> 00:18:08.080
  • Paul said, "There was a
  • 00:18:08.080 --> 00:18:09.070
  • messenger of Satan that was
  • 00:18:09.070 --> 00:18:11.160
  • me, to come against me."
  • 00:18:13.230 --> 00:18:15.150
  • It's kind of an old fashion
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:16.180
  • word to buffet, but it means
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:17.180
  • to torment.
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:18.260
  • Paul said there was a
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:19.260
  • messenger of Satan that was
  • 00:18:19.260 --> 00:18:21.100
  • sent to torment him and that
  • 00:18:21.100 --> 00:18:23.170
  • this messenger of Satan, he
  • 00:18:23.170 --> 00:18:25.040
  • doesn't tell us exactly what
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:26.160
  • it was; whether it was
  • 00:18:26.160 --> 00:18:27.220
  • somebody that was
  • 00:18:27.220 --> 00:18:28.110
  • persecuting him.
  • 00:18:28.110 --> 00:18:29.110
  • Some have thought it was
  • 00:18:29.110 --> 00:18:30.020
  • some kind of a physical
  • 00:18:30.020 --> 00:18:31.080
  • challenge in his body.
  • 00:18:31.080 --> 00:18:32.100
  • We don't know.
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:33.140
  • But regardless of what the
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:35.250
  • source was, whether it was a
  • 00:18:35.250 --> 00:18:37.180
  • persecute, or something in
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:39.060
  • his body, we don't know;
  • 00:18:39.060 --> 00:18:40.080
  • regardless of what
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:41.000
  • specifically it was, we know
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:42.110
  • that it was an attack, that
  • 00:18:42.110 --> 00:18:43.160
  • it was causing him torment.
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:45.080
  • And Paul said that it came
  • 00:18:45.080 --> 00:18:46.210
  • from the realm of darkness,
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:47.210
  • that it came from Satan.
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:49.010
  • And Paul said he prayed to
  • 00:18:49.010 --> 00:18:50.130
  • the Lord three times to
  • 00:18:50.130 --> 00:18:53.020
  • remove this thing, that his
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:54.180
  • life would be easier, that
  • 00:18:54.180 --> 00:18:55.240
  • he wouldn't have to be in
  • 00:18:55.240 --> 00:18:56.280
  • anguish about this
  • 00:18:56.280 --> 00:18:57.280
  • tormentor.
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:18:58.290
  • And finally Paul said, after
  • 00:18:58.290 --> 00:19:01.120
  • the third time when he had
  • 00:19:01.120 --> 00:19:02.280
  • asked God to take this away
  • 00:19:02.280 --> 00:19:04.040
  • from him, to remove it, the
  • 00:19:04.040 --> 00:19:05.220
  • Lord spoke to him.
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:07.080
  • And God said to him, "No
  • 00:19:07.080 --> 00:19:08.040
  • Paul, I'm not gonna remove
  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:09.000
  • this thorn in your flesh."
  • 00:19:09.000 --> 00:19:10.280
  • He said, "Because My power
  • 00:19:11.030 --> 00:19:14.030
  • is gonna be perfected in
  • 00:19:14.030 --> 00:19:16.180
  • your weakness."
  • 00:19:16.180 --> 00:19:18.020
  • Get that again.
  • 00:19:18.020 --> 00:19:19.180
  • Paul is struggling with
  • 00:19:19.180 --> 00:19:20.230
  • something.
  • 00:19:20.230 --> 00:19:21.220
  • This thing that he's
  • 00:19:21.220 --> 00:19:22.130
  • struggling with is causing
  • 00:19:22.130 --> 00:19:24.260
  • difficulty, it's causing
  • 00:19:24.260 --> 00:19:26.030
  • pain, it's uncomfortable.
  • 00:19:26.030 --> 00:19:27.180
  • Paul says, "Lord take it
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:28.190
  • away."
  • 00:19:28.190 --> 00:19:29.260
  • And God says, "No Paul, My
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:31.110
  • grace is gonna be sufficient
  • 00:19:31.110 --> 00:19:32.090
  • for you.
  • 00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:33.010
  • I'm not gonna take it away,
  • 00:19:33.010 --> 00:19:34.240
  • because this thorn in the
  • 00:19:34.240 --> 00:19:35.270
  • flesh is making you depend
  • 00:19:35.270 --> 00:19:37.080
  • on Me and as you depend on
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:39.240
  • Me," God said, "you're gonna
  • 00:19:39.240 --> 00:19:41.200
  • be strong."
  • 00:19:41.200 --> 00:19:43.050
  • And so the same is true in
  • 00:19:43.050 --> 00:19:44.090
  • our life.
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:45.240
  • As we depend on God we walk
  • 00:19:45.240 --> 00:19:47.210
  • in strength.
  • 00:19:47.210 --> 00:19:48.150
  • This is why Paul followed up
  • 00:19:48.150 --> 00:19:49.210
  • "Therefore I will rather
  • 00:19:51.110 --> 00:19:53.130
  • boast in my weakness then in
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:55.190
  • my strength, for when I am
  • 00:19:55.190 --> 00:19:57.030
  • weak He is strong, then I am
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:19:59.200
  • And so we're talking here,
  • 00:20:00.190 --> 00:20:01.260
  • beloved ones, about the
  • 00:20:01.260 --> 00:20:02.260
  • truth that God is equipping
  • 00:20:02.260 --> 00:20:04.150
  • us and He is working in us
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:07.070
  • that which is needed for us
  • 00:20:07.070 --> 00:20:08.270
  • to do His will and please
  • 00:20:08.270 --> 00:20:09.260
  • Him.
  • 00:20:09.260 --> 00:20:10.250
  • And this equipping takes
  • 00:20:10.250 --> 00:20:12.080
  • place as we, listen now,
  • 00:20:12.080 --> 00:20:14.230
  • depend on Him.
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:16.080
  • Even as Paul had to go
  • 00:20:16.080 --> 00:20:17.100
  • through a difficult time,
  • 00:20:17.100 --> 00:20:18.270
  • this messenger of Satan that
  • 00:20:18.270 --> 00:20:20.100
  • was tormenting him, in order
  • 00:20:20.100 --> 00:20:22.000
  • to cause him to be fully
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:23.090
  • dependent on God, so the
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:25.050
  • same is true for you and I.
  • 00:20:25.050 --> 00:20:27.160
  • You may be going through a
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:28.050
  • difficult time right now and
  • 00:20:28.050 --> 00:20:30.140
  • it's possible the reason
  • 00:20:30.140 --> 00:20:31.250
  • that you're going through a
  • 00:20:31.250 --> 00:20:32.180
  • difficult time right now, is
  • 00:20:32.180 --> 00:20:34.020
  • God is breaking you down to
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:36.190
  • become more dependent on
  • 00:20:36.190 --> 00:20:38.110
  • Him, because God knows
  • 00:20:38.110 --> 00:20:40.000
  • you're gonna be more
  • 00:20:40.000 --> 00:20:40.270
  • fruitful for Him and walk in
  • 00:20:40.270 --> 00:20:42.170
  • a way that's more pleasing
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:43.270
  • to Him as you become more
  • 00:20:43.270 --> 00:20:45.140
  • dependent on Him.
  • 00:20:45.140 --> 00:20:47.170
  • But you won't become more
  • 00:20:47.170 --> 00:20:49.050
  • dependent on Him without
  • 00:20:49.050 --> 00:20:51.060
  • being broken down.
  • 00:20:51.060 --> 00:20:53.000
  • One of my favorite
  • 00:20:53.000 --> 00:20:53.240
  • scriptures is in the book of
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:54.220
  • 2 Corinthians the first
  • 00:20:54.220 --> 00:20:56.110
  • chapter.
  • 00:20:56.110 --> 00:20:57.030
  • Here's what Paul says.
  • 00:20:57.030 --> 00:20:58.130
  • burden excessively beyond
  • 00:20:59.260 --> 00:21:01.170
  • strength so that I despair
  • 00:21:01.170 --> 00:21:03.230
  • happens to me," Paul says,
  • 00:21:06.040 --> 00:21:08.080
  • "that I will learn to trust
  • 00:21:08.080 --> 00:21:09.140
  • in God that raises the
  • 00:21:09.180 --> 00:21:12.180
  • dead."
  • 00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:13.240
  • to you right now, God prunes
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:17.200
  • us.
  • 00:21:17.200 --> 00:21:19.160
  • He causes us to go through
  • 00:21:19.160 --> 00:21:20.280
  • difficult times in order
  • 00:21:20.280 --> 00:21:22.230
  • dependent on Him.
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:25.120
  • And as we become more
  • 00:21:25.120 --> 00:21:26.080
  • dependent on Him, He works
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:28.040
  • in our life in ever greater
  • 00:21:28.040 --> 00:21:29.290
  • ways to walk in the Spirit,
  • 00:21:30.030 --> 00:21:33.030
  • to accomplish His will and
  • 00:21:33.030 --> 00:21:34.180
  • to live in a way that's
  • 00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:36.090
  • righteous and pleasing in
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:38.160
  • His sight.
  • 00:21:38.160 --> 00:21:39.230
  • I have found in my life that
  • 00:21:39.230 --> 00:21:41.090
  • following the Lord is not
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:43.030
  • the easiest path to take.
  • 00:21:43.030 --> 00:21:44.250
  • Jesus said, "Straight and
  • 00:21:46.060 --> 00:21:47.180
  • narrow is the way that leads
  • 00:21:47.180 --> 00:21:48.250
  • to life."
  • 00:21:48.250 --> 00:21:49.170
  • He said, "Strive to enter
  • 00:21:49.170 --> 00:21:51.160
  • I used to wrestle when I was
  • 00:21:53.030 --> 00:21:54.030
  • in school and wrestling as
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:55.170
  • many of you know, it's a
  • 00:21:55.170 --> 00:21:56.290
  • very intense sport that
  • 00:21:56.290 --> 00:21:58.260
  • takes a tremendous amount of
  • 00:21:58.260 --> 00:22:00.030
  • energy.
  • 00:22:00.030 --> 00:22:01.060
  • Well I want you to know,
  • 00:22:01.060 --> 00:22:02.130
  • that walking with the Lord
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:05.030
  • is harder than wrestling,
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:07.000
  • because a wrestling match is
  • 00:22:07.000 --> 00:22:08.030
  • over in six minutes.
  • 00:22:08.030 --> 00:22:10.040
  • Walking with the Lord is
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:11.230
  • straining every day for a
  • 00:22:11.230 --> 00:22:12.290
  • life time.
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:13.250
  • book of Ephesians, "We
  • 00:22:14.250 --> 00:22:15.290
  • wrestle not against flesh
  • 00:22:15.290 --> 00:22:17.050
  • and blood."
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:18.090
  • So I want to encourage you
  • 00:22:18.090 --> 00:22:19.010
  • faithful.
  • 00:22:20.280 --> 00:22:22.060
  • Continue to depend on Him
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:24.040
  • and have this confidence.
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:25.200

  • you in a mighty way to

  • accomplish in you that which
  • 00:22:31.090 --> 00:22:34.000
  • will give you the ability to
