  • My name's Rabbi Schneider.
  • 00:00:41.040 --> 00:00:42.120
  • Welcome today to a very
  • 00:00:42.120 --> 00:00:44.110
  • important episode of
  • 00:00:44.110 --> 00:00:45.200
  • Discovering the Jewish

  • I'm gonna be taking you
  • 00:00:47.160 --> 00:00:49.070
  • inside the Holy Land.
  • 00:00:49.070 --> 00:00:51.010
  • I want to share an
  • 00:00:51.010 --> 00:00:51.210
  • experience as we begin
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:52.240
  • today, that I had that
  • 00:00:52.240 --> 00:00:54.060
  • really helped me to
  • 00:00:54.060 --> 00:00:55.040
  • appreciate how special
  • 00:00:55.040 --> 00:00:57.070
  • it talks about the places
  • 00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:01.050
  • that God moved in the pages
  • 00:01:01.050 --> 00:01:02.190
  • God is still very connected
  • 00:01:04.020 --> 00:01:06.110
  • to the physical land of
  • 00:01:06.110 --> 00:01:08.070
  • Israel today.
  • 00:01:08.070 --> 00:01:09.190
  • Going back over fifteen
  • 00:01:09.190 --> 00:01:10.290
  • my heart to go to Israel,
  • 00:01:12.260 --> 00:01:14.100
  • but as many of you know it's
  • 00:01:14.100 --> 00:01:15.220
  • expensive.
  • 00:01:15.220 --> 00:01:16.200
  • And at the time it would
  • 00:01:16.200 --> 00:01:18.020
  • have been a huge financial
  • 00:01:18.020 --> 00:01:19.240
  • sacrifice for me to go
  • 00:01:19.240 --> 00:01:21.230
  • there.
  • 00:01:21.230 --> 00:01:22.130
  • I wanted to go, but I put
  • 00:01:22.130 --> 00:01:24.130
  • off going, because frankly
  • 00:01:24.130 --> 00:01:26.090
  • it would have been a big
  • 00:01:26.090 --> 00:01:27.020
  • financial stress.
  • 00:01:27.020 --> 00:01:28.230
  • But I went to sleep one
  • 00:01:28.230 --> 00:01:29.260
  • night during this time
  • 00:01:29.260 --> 00:01:30.240
  • period and I had a vision of
  • 00:01:30.240 --> 00:01:32.190
  • the night in my sleep.
  • 00:01:32.190 --> 00:01:34.050
  • What happened was this, I
  • 00:01:34.050 --> 00:01:35.270
  • was outside of the earth
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:37.190
  • looking down on it from
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:39.050
  • outer space, like an
  • 00:01:39.050 --> 00:01:40.180
  • astronaut would who went up
  • 00:01:40.180 --> 00:01:41.290
  • in a rocket, gets up in the
  • 00:01:41.290 --> 00:01:43.260
  • air hundreds of miles and is
  • 00:01:43.260 --> 00:01:45.090
  • able to look down upon the
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:46.250
  • earth from outer space.
  • 00:01:46.250 --> 00:01:48.200
  • I'm looking down at the
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:49.270
  • earth from outer space and I
  • 00:01:49.270 --> 00:01:51.240
  • see beloved ones, on top of
  • 00:01:51.240 --> 00:01:53.150
  • the earth a sphere, a round
  • 00:01:53.150 --> 00:01:55.170
  • sphere and this round sphere
  • 00:01:55.170 --> 00:01:57.160
  • was right on top of the
  • 00:01:57.160 --> 00:01:58.270
  • globe, right on top of the
  • 00:01:58.270 --> 00:02:00.210
  • world and this fear was
  • 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:02.120
  • going up from the earth into
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:04.150
  • the heavens.
  • 00:02:04.150 --> 00:02:05.120
  • And then on top of this
  • 00:02:05.120 --> 00:02:06.180
  • sphere that came up from the
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:08.060
  • top of the world, listen,
  • 00:02:08.060 --> 00:02:09.190
  • felt the glory of God.
  • 00:02:12.110 --> 00:02:14.270
  • And the Lord was
  • 00:02:14.270 --> 00:02:15.170
  • communicating to me in that
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:16.230
  • experience that Israel is
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:18.210
  • lifted up on the earth in a
  • 00:02:18.210 --> 00:02:20.200
  • way that no other place on
  • 00:02:20.200 --> 00:02:22.130
  • the earth is lifted up.
  • 00:02:22.130 --> 00:02:24.020
  • God is connected to the land
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:26.180
  • way.
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:29.230
  • Now I don't want to discount
  • 00:02:29.230 --> 00:02:30.260
  • the fact that God is
  • 00:02:30.260 --> 00:02:31.280
  • everywhere and we can
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.030
  • experience Him fully
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:34.290
  • everywhere and anywhere He
  • 00:02:34.290 --> 00:02:36.090
  • wants to manifest Himself.
  • 00:02:36.090 --> 00:02:37.280
  • But still the other side of
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:39.140
  • that coin is that Israel is
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:41.230
  • God's chosen land.
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:43.280
  • I'm gonna take you in
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:44.250
  • today's show to three
  • 00:02:44.250 --> 00:02:46.110
  • special places inside the
  • 00:02:46.110 --> 00:02:47.290
  • Holy Land.
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:48.190
  • First of all, we're gonna go
  • 00:02:48.190 --> 00:02:50.170
  • outside the caves of Ein
  • 00:02:50.170 --> 00:02:52.000
  • Gedi and I'm gonna be
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:53.020
  • talking about a principle
  • 00:02:53.020 --> 00:02:54.220
  • that we saw emanating from
  • 00:02:54.220 --> 00:02:56.090
  • David's heart that we're
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:02:57.180
  • gonna be able to apply to
  • 00:02:57.180 --> 00:02:58.210
  • our lives today.
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:03:00.070
  • Following that segment I'm
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:01.270
  • gonna take you inside Sodom
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:03.170
  • and Gomorrah and talk about
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:05.130
  • what we learned about Sodom
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:06.230
  • and Gomorrah and how it
  • 00:03:06.230 --> 00:03:07.290
  • relates to our earth walk
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:09.160
  • today.
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:10.110
  • Then finally we're gonna
  • 00:03:10.110 --> 00:03:11.080
  • conclude by going to the
  • 00:03:11.080 --> 00:03:12.230
  • wilderness at Sinai and I
  • 00:03:12.230 --> 00:03:14.160
  • got a really special word
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:16.230
  • that's gonna be directed
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:17.290
  • just to you.
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:19.020
  • Thank you for staying tune
  • 00:03:19.020 --> 00:03:19.260
  • beloved.
  • 00:03:19.260 --> 00:03:20.160
  • I love you.
  • 00:03:20.160 --> 00:03:21.070
  • Let's now go to the land of
  • 00:03:21.070 --> 00:03:22.000
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- ()
  • 00:03:37.100 --> 00:03:38.050
  • I'm just outside of Ein Gedi
  • 00:03:38.050 --> 00:03:40.060
  • and it reminds me of how
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:41.170
  • David hid in the caves of
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:43.140
  • Ein Gedi when he was fleeing
  • 00:03:43.140 --> 00:03:45.050
  • It amazes me how David was
  • 00:03:46.080 --> 00:03:48.220
  • persecuted by Saul, how his
  • 00:03:48.220 --> 00:03:50.290
  • life was pursued for such a
  • 00:03:50.290 --> 00:03:53.100
  • long time and yet he refused
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:56.090
  • he said, "I will not arise
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:04:00.070
  • against the Lord's
  • 00:04:00.070 --> 00:04:01.010
  • anointed."
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:01.240
  • that as ungodly as Saul's
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:06.270
  • behavior was, David would
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:08.230
  • not stretch forth his hand
  • 00:04:08.230 --> 00:04:10.020
  • against him, because he had
  • 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:11.120
  • such a respect for the
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:13.010
  • office that Saul was
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:14.190
  • standing in.
  • 00:04:14.190 --> 00:04:15.190
  • You know often times today
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:16.180
  • we have lost that in our
  • 00:04:16.180 --> 00:04:17.240
  • culture.
  • 00:04:17.240 --> 00:04:18.200
  • We have a great sensitivity
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:20.160
  • to sin, but we don't have
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:22.220
  • much of a sensitivity to
  • 00:04:22.220 --> 00:04:24.100
  • authority.
  • 00:04:24.100 --> 00:04:25.020
  • And yet when we look for
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:26.080
  • got drunk, we find out that
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:30.040
  • two of his sons protected
  • 00:04:30.040 --> 00:04:31.260
  • his dad's office.
  • 00:04:31.260 --> 00:04:33.010
  • dignity by walking into the
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:36.190
  • cave backwards, but one of
  • 00:04:36.190 --> 00:04:38.220
  • the sons exposed his
  • 00:04:38.220 --> 00:04:40.050
  • father's nakedness.
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:41.150
  • And you know what?
  • 00:04:41.150 --> 00:04:42.120
  • The one who exposed his
  • 00:04:42.120 --> 00:04:43.260
  • father's nakedness ended up
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:45.220
  • being cursed.
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:46.240
  • Again I want to say to you,
  • 00:04:46.240 --> 00:04:48.080
  • it's important that we learn
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.020
  • sensitivity to sin, but also
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:53.260
  • beloved, a sensitivity to
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:55.250
  • authority, because all
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:57.050
  • authority comes from God.
  • 00:04:57.050 --> 00:04:58.200
  • And we need to respect
  • 00:04:58.200 --> 00:04:59.280
  • they're standing.
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:02.120
  • This is Rabbi Schneider
  • 00:05:02.120 --> 00:05:03.060
  • saying God bless you from
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:04.150
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- ()
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:08.110
  • Let's state it again.
  • 00:05:08.110 --> 00:05:09.160
  • Consider Saul is king, he's
  • 00:05:09.160 --> 00:05:12.030
  • pursuing David, he wants to
  • 00:05:12.030 --> 00:05:14.050
  • take David's life.
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.260
  • David is hiding in Ein Gedi.
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:18.030
  • On several occasions David
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:20.200
  • had the opportunity to take
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:22.170
  • Saul's life, to protect
  • 00:05:22.170 --> 00:05:24.120
  • himself from Saul killing
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:25.270
  • him.
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:26.210
  • But instead David did not
  • 00:05:26.210 --> 00:05:28.220
  • retaliate against Saul,
  • 00:05:28.220 --> 00:05:30.060
  • because David said, "Far be
  • 00:05:30.060 --> 00:05:32.130
  • it from me to strike the
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:34.080
  • Lord's anointed."
  • 00:05:34.080 --> 00:05:35.170
  • And what really strikes me
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:36.280
  • about this is that here
  • 00:05:36.280 --> 00:05:38.290
  • David was dealing with a
  • 00:05:38.290 --> 00:05:40.030
  • corrupt king.
  • 00:05:40.030 --> 00:05:41.090
  • Saul was defiled at this
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:43.050
  • point and yet David would
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:44.230
  • not touch him, although Saul
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:46.220
  • was defiled, because Saul
  • 00:05:46.220 --> 00:05:49.180
  • was standing in the office
  • 00:05:49.180 --> 00:05:51.260
  • of God's anointed.
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.040
  • It showed that David
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:54.190
  • respected God's authority.
  • 00:05:54.190 --> 00:05:56.190
  • You see, the reason David
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:05:58.210
  • didn't take Saul's life is
  • 00:05:58.210 --> 00:06:00.220
  • not because David respected
  • 00:06:00.220 --> 00:06:02.120
  • Saul so much as an
  • 00:06:02.120 --> 00:06:03.150
  • individual, but it was
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.020
  • because David respected God,
  • 00:06:05.020 --> 00:06:07.210
  • God's sovereignty and God's
  • 00:06:07.210 --> 00:06:09.230
  • authority.
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:10.130
  • And the reason I'm driving
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:12.090
  • this point home, is that our
  • 00:06:12.090 --> 00:06:14.040
  • culture has become so
  • 00:06:14.040 --> 00:06:16.060
  • defiled in spirit towards
  • 00:06:16.060 --> 00:06:18.070
  • authority figures.
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:19.220
  • But here's what we need to
  • 00:06:19.220 --> 00:06:20.280
  • remember, although the
  • 00:06:20.280 --> 00:06:22.050
  • in our generation often
  • 00:06:23.180 --> 00:06:25.150
  • times aren't pure, often
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:27.200
  • times they're motives are
  • 00:06:27.200 --> 00:06:28.290
  • not right, often times what
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:30.220
  • they do is not legitimate,
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:32.210
  • just like Saul was not pure
  • 00:06:32.210 --> 00:06:35.000
  • and just as he was not
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:36.040
  • But we need to be like
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:39.080
  • David, David didn't take out
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:41.170
  • vengeance on people who were
  • 00:06:41.170 --> 00:06:42.280
  • standing in an office of
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:44.030
  • authority, because he
  • 00:06:44.030 --> 00:06:45.100
  • recognized that authority
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:47.220
  • figures represent God's
  • 00:06:47.220 --> 00:06:49.160
  • authority.
  • 00:06:49.160 --> 00:06:50.060
  • Now I realize that there can
  • 00:06:50.060 --> 00:06:51.160
  • be exceptions to this, but
  • 00:06:51.160 --> 00:06:52.290
  • the problem is in today's
  • 00:06:52.290 --> 00:06:54.240
  • generation we always want to
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:56.150
  • make it the exception.
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:57.150
  • In other words, we don't
  • 00:06:57.150 --> 00:06:58.160
  • like something our pastor
  • 00:06:58.160 --> 00:06:59.240
  • said, so what do we do?
  • 00:06:59.240 --> 00:07:01.080
  • We start gossiping about
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:02.190
  • him.
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:03.090
  • Beloved, just because we
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:04.070
  • didn't like something our
  • 00:07:04.070 --> 00:07:05.010
  • pastor said, that's not a
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:06.200
  • reason or excuse that we can
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:08.110
  • use to start gossiping about
  • 00:07:08.110 --> 00:07:10.080
  • David wouldn't have done
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.240
  • that, not because he
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.030
  • respected everything that
  • 00:07:14.030 --> 00:07:15.110
  • Saul said, but because he
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:17.100
  • respected God and because he
  • 00:07:17.100 --> 00:07:19.180
  • the office that Saul was
  • 00:07:21.240 --> 00:07:23.130
  • standing in.
  • 00:07:23.130 --> 00:07:24.090
  • Listen, without respect in
  • 00:07:24.090 --> 00:07:26.110
  • our culture our culture is
  • 00:07:26.110 --> 00:07:28.120
  • gonna collapse, it's gonna
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:30.000
  • crash.
  • 00:07:30.000 --> 00:07:30.250
  • We need to respect police
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:32.160
  • officers.
  • 00:07:32.160 --> 00:07:33.060
  • Yes, some are defiled, some
  • 00:07:33.060 --> 00:07:35.020
  • are corrupt, but we can't
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.110
  • just hate the whole police
  • 00:07:36.110 --> 00:07:37.290
  • department.
  • 00:07:37.290 --> 00:07:38.190
  • We've got to respect the
  • 00:07:38.190 --> 00:07:39.190
  • institution.
  • 00:07:39.190 --> 00:07:40.220
  • This is what the book of
  • 00:07:40.220 --> 00:07:41.160
  • Romans teaches us.
  • 00:07:41.160 --> 00:07:42.210
  • We've got to respect the
  • 00:07:42.210 --> 00:07:43.220
  • elderly.
  • 00:07:43.220 --> 00:07:45.070
  • We've got to respect our
  • 00:07:45.070 --> 00:07:46.090
  • teachers.
  • 00:07:46.090 --> 00:07:47.090
  • We've got to respect people
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:48.210
  • in government offices.
  • 00:07:48.210 --> 00:07:50.060
  • Not that we have to agree
  • 00:07:50.060 --> 00:07:51.120
  • with them, but we can't
  • 00:07:51.120 --> 00:07:52.290
  • develop a defiled spirit
  • 00:07:52.290 --> 00:07:54.170
  • against them, even if they
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:56.040
  • themselves are defiled,
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:57.220
  • scripture said, "All
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:00.110
  • authority comes from God and
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:02.170
  • he that resist authority is
  • 00:08:02.170 --> 00:08:04.150
  • resisting the ordinances of
  • 00:08:04.150 --> 00:08:06.030
  • Now I realize that there's a
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.050
  • mystery and a balance to
  • 00:08:08.050 --> 00:08:09.220
  • this, but beloved I just
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:11.010
  • want to restore to your
  • 00:08:11.010 --> 00:08:12.050
  • heart today the basic and
  • 00:08:12.050 --> 00:08:14.050
  • we must learn, listen now,
  • 00:08:16.200 --> 00:08:18.200
  • to show respect and
  • 00:08:18.200 --> 00:08:20.120
  • appreciation for authority
  • 00:08:20.120 --> 00:08:23.000
  • figures.
  • 00:08:23.000 --> 00:08:23.200
  • And it's not based upon the
  • 00:08:23.200 --> 00:08:25.070
  • the fact that God is
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:28.180
  • authority and because we
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:30.160
  • recognize His authority, we
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:32.080
  • respect authority figures in
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:33.260
  • the world.
  • 00:08:33.260 --> 00:08:34.250
  • I hope this helps you.
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:35.240
  • I think it teaches us that
  • 00:08:35.240 --> 00:08:37.000
  • no matter where we go we
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:38.220
  • want to respect the
  • 00:08:38.220 --> 00:08:39.180
  • authority figure in that
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:41.050
  • place.
  • 00:08:41.050 --> 00:08:42.000
  • In other words, if we go
  • 00:08:42.000 --> 00:08:42.270
  • into a restaurant and the
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:44.090
  • manager in that restaurant
  • 00:08:44.090 --> 00:08:45.290
  • is the authority figure in
  • 00:08:45.290 --> 00:08:46.280
  • that restaurant, we want to
  • 00:08:46.280 --> 00:08:48.020
  • show simple respect.
  • 00:08:48.020 --> 00:08:50.010
  • We want to respect, again,
  • 00:08:50.010 --> 00:08:51.180
  • the elderly.
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:52.230
  • I want to really encourage
  • 00:08:52.230 --> 00:08:54.080
  • you to show love and respect
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:55.230
  • The scripture says to not do
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:58.270
  • so would be unprofitable for
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:01.200
  • you.
  • 00:09:01.200 --> 00:09:02.100
  • culture of sanctity and
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:06.250
  • respect to our hearts,
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:08.050
  • because you know what?
  • 00:09:08.050 --> 00:09:09.160
  • When we show respect to
  • 00:09:09.160 --> 00:09:11.050
  • other people, listen now, it
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:13.020
  • makes us taller.
  • 00:09:13.020 --> 00:09:15.200
  • The same thing I believe
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:16.240
  • applies for women.
  • 00:09:16.240 --> 00:09:17.260
  • Today so often times women
  • 00:09:17.260 --> 00:09:19.080
  • they think they've got to
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:20.020
  • fight against men, because
  • 00:09:20.020 --> 00:09:21.230
  • too often times men have not
  • 00:09:21.230 --> 00:09:23.290
  • acted appropriately and
  • 00:09:23.290 --> 00:09:25.140
  • because men maybe you know
  • 00:09:25.140 --> 00:09:26.230
  • have misused their, you know
  • 00:09:26.230 --> 00:09:28.260
  • their office of being a
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:30.100
  • husband as the head of the
  • 00:09:30.100 --> 00:09:32.030
  • home.
  • 00:09:32.030 --> 00:09:32.230
  • They've misused it and so as
  • 00:09:32.230 --> 00:09:34.050
  • a result women are often
  • 00:09:34.050 --> 00:09:35.230
  • times feeling like they
  • 00:09:35.230 --> 00:09:37.080
  • can't trust any man, they
  • 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:38.190
  • have to just you know defend
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:39.280
  • themselves, always be on the
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:41.040
  • offense.
  • 00:09:41.040 --> 00:09:42.000
  • But I want you to know woman
  • 00:09:42.000 --> 00:09:43.070
  • of God, you don't have to be
  • 00:09:43.070 --> 00:09:45.050
  • like that.
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:46.040
  • You just have to submit to
  • 00:09:46.040 --> 00:09:47.140
  • God, walk in His ways and
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:49.260
  • you know what's gonna
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:50.160
  • happen?
  • 00:09:50.160 --> 00:09:51.070
  • It's gonna make you taller.
  • 00:09:51.070 --> 00:09:53.100
  • To be submitted and to show
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:55.140
  • respect, when it's done with
  • 00:09:55.140 --> 00:09:57.010
  • the right spirit, does not
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:58.230
  • make one weak or short.
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:10:00.280
  • It makes one strong and
  • 00:10:00.280 --> 00:10:03.050
  • tall.
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:03.250
  • Let's learn from the life of
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:05.040
  • David, who is a man who
  • 00:10:05.040 --> 00:10:06.220
  • loved God with all his
  • 00:10:06.220 --> 00:10:07.250
  • heart, how to show respect
  • 00:10:07.250 --> 00:10:09.260
  • for authority, even often
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:11.250
  • times when the person that's
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:13.140
  • in the office of authority
  • 00:10:13.140 --> 00:10:15.010
  • falls far short from being
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:16.290
  • perfect.
  • 00:10:16.290 --> 00:10:17.290
  • Well I'm gonna take you to a
  • 00:10:17.290 --> 00:10:18.250
  • new segment in Israel right
  • 00:10:18.250 --> 00:10:20.050
  • now.
  • 00:10:20.050 --> 00:10:21.010
  • We're gonna switch gears
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:21.220
  • completely.
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:22.200
  • Let's go to Sodom and
  • 00:10:22.200 --> 00:10:24.040
  • in Israel at the Biblical
  • 00:10:32.030 --> 00:10:33.020
  • city of Sodom.
  • 00:10:33.020 --> 00:10:34.230
  • You can see behind me a
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:35.270
  • large pillar.
  • 00:10:35.270 --> 00:10:36.190
  • was Lot's wife.
  • 00:10:37.250 --> 00:10:39.090
  • What I do know, is that this
  • 00:10:40.200 --> 00:10:42.100
  • is the Bible city of Sodom
  • 00:10:42.100 --> 00:10:44.240
  • that's spoken of in the
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:46.160
  • Beloved, the Lord destroyed
  • 00:10:48.260 --> 00:10:50.280
  • this city.
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:51.180
  • There were many sins that
  • 00:10:51.180 --> 00:10:52.170
  • were going on, but the
  • 00:10:52.170 --> 00:10:54.060
  • primary sin that the city
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:56.060
  • was destroyed, was the
  • 00:10:56.060 --> 00:10:57.260
  • Now I know today in our
  • 00:10:59.260 --> 00:11:01.140
  • culture that it's considered
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:03.120
  • normal, that it's an
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:04.130
  • acceptable lifestyle.
  • 00:11:04.130 --> 00:11:05.230
  • But if we're basing our
  • 00:11:05.230 --> 00:11:07.260
  • faith, if we're basing truth
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:10.040
  • on the written word of God,
  • 00:11:10.040 --> 00:11:12.010
  • we find that both the Hebrew
  • 00:11:12.010 --> 00:11:13.120
  • Bible the Torah as well as
  • 00:11:13.120 --> 00:11:15.130
  • several places in the New
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:16.270
  • Testament, that this city
  • 00:11:16.270 --> 00:11:18.260
  • was guilty of sodomization
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:21.080
  • of homosexuality.
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:23.020
  • Beloved, what God created we
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:25.220
  • can not say is no longer
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:27.160
  • In other words, God created
  • 00:11:28.070 --> 00:11:30.000
  • male and female in His own
  • 00:11:30.000 --> 00:11:32.180
  • image, He created them.
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:33.240
  • And just by looking at the
  • 00:11:33.240 --> 00:11:35.140
  • anatomy and the female
  • 00:11:36.260 --> 00:11:38.130
  • anatomy we can see that
  • 00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:39.260
  • sexually they were made to
  • 00:11:39.260 --> 00:11:41.150
  • go together.
  • 00:11:41.150 --> 00:11:42.150
  • That's why a child can be
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:44.050
  • conceived between a man and
  • 00:11:44.050 --> 00:11:46.200
  • a woman, but no child can be
  • 00:11:46.200 --> 00:11:48.210
  • conceived between a man and
  • 00:11:48.210 --> 00:11:51.050
  • a man or a woman and a
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:52.290
  • woman.
  • 00:11:52.290 --> 00:11:53.240
  • So I just want to say this,
  • 00:11:53.240 --> 00:11:54.280
  • as culture is changing and
  • 00:11:54.280 --> 00:11:57.030
  • as people's value system
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.290
  • changes, it should not
  • 00:11:58.290 --> 00:12:00.240
  • affect the believer.
  • 00:12:00.240 --> 00:12:02.280
  • We as believers need to keep
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:05.070
  • our value system rooted in
  • 00:12:05.070 --> 00:12:07.250
  • the word of God regardless
  • 00:12:07.250 --> 00:12:09.260
  • of what the culture outside
  • 00:12:09.260 --> 00:12:11.100
  • See the Bible says, "Do not
  • 00:12:12.130 --> 00:12:14.040
  • be conformed to this world,
  • 00:12:14.040 --> 00:12:16.170
  • by the word of God."
  • 00:12:19.000 --> 00:12:20.140
  • I believe that the spirit of
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:21.240
  • homosexuality is gonna
  • 00:12:21.240 --> 00:12:23.170
  • continue to increase around
  • 00:12:23.170 --> 00:12:25.070
  • the world.
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:26.040
  • Not only is it intensifying
  • 00:12:26.040 --> 00:12:28.160
  • in the western world, but
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:30.180
  • countries and nations around
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:32.030
  • the earth that haven't been
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:33.040
  • affected by it are now
  • 00:12:33.040 --> 00:12:35.090
  • beginning to be affected.
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:38.030
  • I often travel to Africa and
  • 00:12:38.030 --> 00:12:40.060
  • they've tried to resist
  • 00:12:40.060 --> 00:12:41.160
  • what's going on in the
  • 00:12:41.160 --> 00:12:42.210
  • United States in terms of
  • 00:12:42.210 --> 00:12:44.100
  • our value system here, but
  • 00:12:44.100 --> 00:12:46.020
  • they're finding slowly the
  • 00:12:46.020 --> 00:12:47.130
  • value system of the United
  • 00:12:47.130 --> 00:12:48.200
  • States, including the
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:50.030
  • acceptance of homosexuality
  • 00:12:50.030 --> 00:12:52.010
  • is now permeating into parts
  • 00:12:52.010 --> 00:12:54.050
  • of Africa.
  • 00:12:54.050 --> 00:12:55.060
  • I just want to encourage you
  • 00:12:55.060 --> 00:12:56.100
  • beloved, we love all people.
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:59.010
  • Your sin has been forgiven
  • 00:12:59.010 --> 00:13:01.000
  • just as a homosexual,
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:02.100
  • someone who's practicing
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:03.070
  • that lifestyle is forgiven,
  • 00:13:03.070 --> 00:13:05.050
  • but we can't call what's
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:06.110
  • wrong right and what's right
  • 00:13:06.110 --> 00:13:08.070
  • wrong.
  • 00:13:08.070 --> 00:13:08.270
  • Homosexuality will always be
  • 00:13:08.270 --> 00:13:11.060
  • in disarray with what the
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:13.120
  • Word of God teaches.
  • 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:15.060
  • Listen, we have to choose
  • 00:13:15.060 --> 00:13:17.120
  • right.
  • 00:13:17.120 --> 00:13:18.020
  • We have to choose truth.
  • 00:13:18.020 --> 00:13:20.020
  • And even those who may feel
  • 00:13:20.020 --> 00:13:22.220
  • that they've been homosexual
  • 00:13:22.220 --> 00:13:24.190
  • ever since they've been born

  • that in Christ Jesus old
  • 00:13:29.150 --> 00:13:31.130
  • things pass away and all
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:33.110
  • I want to say finally in
  • 00:13:35.190 --> 00:13:36.280
  • closing, my love goes out to
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:38.190
  • people who are practicing
  • 00:13:38.190 --> 00:13:39.190
  • that lifestyle, the
  • 00:13:39.190 --> 00:13:40.130
  • homosexual lifestyle.
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:41.230
  • But Jesus loves us too much
  • 00:13:41.230 --> 00:13:44.180
  • to leave us where we're at.
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:46.190
  • If you find yourself trapped
  • 00:13:46.190 --> 00:13:48.020

  • 00:13:48.020 --> 00:13:49.140
  • today, I want you to know
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:50.200
  • King Jesus is able to change

  • you, wash you and transform

  • Beloved, God loves us, but
  • 00:13:55.230 --> 00:13:57.180
  • we can't make God in our own

  • image.
  • 00:14:00.100 --> 00:14:01.010
  • If we say we believe in
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:02.130
  • Jesus then we've got to
  • 00:14:02.130 --> 00:14:04.040
  • believe in the Jesus of the
  • 00:14:04.040 --> 00:14:06.010
  • Bible, because it's the only
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:07.140
  • record we have of who Jesus
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:08.280
  • is.
  • 00:14:08.280 --> 00:14:09.220
  • God made man in His own
  • 00:14:11.180 --> 00:14:13.050
  • image, male and female and
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:15.250
  • He created us distinct.
  • 00:14:15.250 --> 00:14:17.240
  • I want to encourage you

  • the culture of the world.
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:22.290
  • Take your cue from God's

  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Now I'm
  • 00:16:01.250 --> 00:16:02.120
  • gonna take you to the

  • wilderness of Sinai.
  • 00:16:03.090 --> 00:16:04.250
  • It doesn't look like there's
  • 00:16:04.250 --> 00:16:06.060
  • much there, but beloved
  • 00:16:06.060 --> 00:16:08.080
  • that's the point.
  • 00:16:08.080 --> 00:16:09.100
  • I'm gonna come back in just
  • 00:16:09.100 --> 00:16:10.100
  • a few moments and make a
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:11.120
  • very practical application
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:13.060
  • from the wilderness for your
  • 00:16:13.060 --> 00:16:14.110
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- I'm in the
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:29.100
  • Sinai wilderness of Israel.
  • 00:16:29.100 --> 00:16:30.140
  • You can see the incredible
  • 00:16:30.140 --> 00:16:31.200
  • beauty behind me.
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:32.270
  • The beauty of the
  • 00:16:32.270 --> 00:16:33.220
  • wilderness.
  • 00:16:33.220 --> 00:16:34.210
  • Do you know this is the
  • 00:16:34.210 --> 00:16:35.230
  • the children of Israel to
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:38.280
  • out of Egypt to worship Him.
  • 00:16:38.280 --> 00:16:41.040
  • We read for example in the
  • 00:16:41.040 --> 00:16:42.070
  • book of Exodus chapter five,
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:43.270
  • verse one, that Moses and
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:45.220
  • Aaron went before Pharaoh
  • 00:16:45.220 --> 00:16:47.280
  • and they said to Pharaoh,
  • 00:16:47.280 --> 00:16:49.000
  • "Let my people go on behalf
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:51.010
  • That they might come into
  • 00:16:51.240 --> 00:16:52.240
  • the wilderness to celebrate
  • 00:16:52.240 --> 00:16:55.080
  • a feast and to worship Me.
  • 00:16:55.080 --> 00:16:57.120
  • Think about it, the Lord
  • 00:16:58.250 --> 00:17:00.120
  • called Israel to worship
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:02.240
  • Him, to sacrifice to Him and
  • 00:17:02.240 --> 00:17:05.180
  • to celebrate before Him in
  • 00:17:05.180 --> 00:17:07.190
  • this place, in the
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:08.290
  • wilderness.
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:09.270
  • If you think about it, it's
  • 00:17:09.270 --> 00:17:11.040
  • kind of puzzling.
  • 00:17:11.040 --> 00:17:12.000
  • I mean why would God call
  • 00:17:12.000 --> 00:17:13.280
  • Israel into the wilderness
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:16.020
  • to worship Him and why did
  • 00:17:16.020 --> 00:17:17.260
  • He tell them to make a feast
  • 00:17:17.260 --> 00:17:20.000
  • before Him and to celebrate
  • 00:17:20.000 --> 00:17:21.220
  • before Him in the
  • 00:17:21.220 --> 00:17:22.150
  • wilderness, because often we
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:24.060
  • think of the wilderness as
  • 00:17:24.060 --> 00:17:25.080
  • really a place that's
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:26.080
  • lacking, a place where
  • 00:17:26.080 --> 00:17:27.260
  • there's not much water and
  • 00:17:27.260 --> 00:17:29.110
  • very little food, there's
  • 00:17:29.110 --> 00:17:32.060
  • not much to look at.
  • 00:17:32.060 --> 00:17:33.270
  • So why the wilderness?
  • 00:17:33.270 --> 00:17:35.290
  • Because beloved it's in a
  • 00:17:35.290 --> 00:17:37.090
  • place like this that the
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:39.080
  • Lord often times meets us
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:41.130
  • most dearly, most clearly.
  • 00:17:41.130 --> 00:17:43.200
  • You see it was only when the
  • 00:17:43.200 --> 00:17:45.010
  • children of Israel were in
  • 00:17:45.010 --> 00:17:46.000
  • the wilderness that the
  • 00:17:46.000 --> 00:17:47.080
  • supernatural manna appeared
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:49.090
  • on the ground six days a
  • 00:17:49.090 --> 00:17:50.180
  • week for forty years and it
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:52.100
  • was only while they were in
  • 00:17:52.100 --> 00:17:53.120
  • the wilderness that they
  • 00:17:53.120 --> 00:17:54.220
  • were able to visibly see the
  • 00:17:54.220 --> 00:17:57.100
  • rested over the tabernacle
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.120
  • as a fire by night and a
  • 00:18:01.120 --> 00:18:03.040
  • cloud by day.
  • 00:18:03.040 --> 00:18:04.240
  • I want to say to you today,
  • 00:18:04.240 --> 00:18:06.150
  • don't waste your wilderness,
  • 00:18:08.220 --> 00:18:10.020
  • because it's often in the
  • 00:18:10.020 --> 00:18:11.210
  • wilderness where Father's
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:13.110
  • It's often in the wilderness
  • 00:18:15.210 --> 00:18:16.280
  • that we learn lessons that
  • 00:18:16.280 --> 00:18:18.160
  • we're able to carry with us
  • 00:18:18.160 --> 00:18:19.290
  • for the rest of our life.
  • 00:18:19.290 --> 00:18:21.110
  • In fact beloved ones,
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:22.160
  • there's some things, let me
  • 00:18:22.160 --> 00:18:24.240
  • things that we can only
  • 00:18:26.160 --> 00:18:28.220
  • learn in the wilderness.
  • 00:18:28.220 --> 00:18:30.180
  • So let's not waste our
  • 00:18:30.180 --> 00:18:31.280
  • wilderness.
  • 00:18:31.280 --> 00:18:32.180
  • The Apostle Paul said in II
  • 00:18:32.180 --> 00:18:34.010
  • Corinthians chapter one,
  • 00:18:34.010 --> 00:18:35.260
  • that He was burden
  • 00:18:35.260 --> 00:18:36.250
  • excessively beyond strength,
  • 00:18:36.250 --> 00:18:39.030
  • life.
  • 00:18:40.270 --> 00:18:41.160
  • But then He said, "This
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:42.200
  • wilderness so to speak
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:44.090
  • happened, that He would
  • 00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:45.150
  • learn to trust in God that
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:47.230
  • raises the dead."
  • 00:18:47.230 --> 00:18:48.270
  • Remember His power is
  • 00:18:48.270 --> 00:18:51.030
  • perfected in our weakness
  • 00:18:51.030 --> 00:18:53.010
  • and often times the
  • 00:18:53.010 --> 00:18:54.090
  • wilderness can be a place of
  • 00:18:54.090 --> 00:18:55.220
  • weakness.
  • 00:18:55.220 --> 00:18:56.170
  • But I'm telling you, God
  • 00:18:56.170 --> 00:18:58.140
  • I want you to know you can't
  • 00:19:00.180 --> 00:19:02.200
  • escape a wilderness.
  • 00:19:02.200 --> 00:19:04.140
  • In fact I believe that our
  • 00:19:04.140 --> 00:19:06.130
  • life consists of a cycle of
  • 00:19:06.130 --> 00:19:08.210
  • wilderness experiences and
  • 00:19:08.210 --> 00:19:10.160
  • that it release into greater
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:12.160
  • joy and breakthrough.
  • 00:19:12.160 --> 00:19:13.250
  • You see God as I said, does
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:16.190
  • things in our life when
  • 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:17.240
  • we're in the wilderness that
  • 00:19:17.240 --> 00:19:19.130
  • He can't do when life is
  • 00:19:19.130 --> 00:19:21.140
  • going easier and we're
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:22.230
  • You see the wilderness
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:25.100
  • represents the fact that we
  • 00:19:25.100 --> 00:19:26.280
  • have no provision other than
  • 00:19:26.280 --> 00:19:29.030
  • God.
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:29.230
  • That's where Jesus went when
  • 00:19:29.230 --> 00:19:31.080
  • ministry.
  • 00:19:32.280 --> 00:19:33.170
  • Jordan River and the Spirit
  • 00:19:34.130 --> 00:19:35.250
  • of the Lord immediately led
  • 00:19:35.250 --> 00:19:37.050
  • Him into the wilderness
  • 00:19:37.050 --> 00:19:38.100
  • where He fasted there for
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:39.130
  • I want you to know, if
  • 00:19:40.180 --> 00:19:41.170
  • you're in a wilderness right
  • 00:19:41.170 --> 00:19:42.260
  • now, it's probably just
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:45.130
  • where you're supposed to be
  • 00:19:45.130 --> 00:19:47.020
  • and you don't want to miss
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:48.060
  • what God can do in your life
  • 00:19:48.060 --> 00:19:49.190
  • by complaining.
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:50.170
  • But rather recognize that it
  • 00:19:50.170 --> 00:19:53.020
  • can be a great blessing for
  • 00:19:53.020 --> 00:19:54.230
  • you, because generally we
  • 00:19:54.230 --> 00:19:56.130
  • make the most spiritual
  • 00:19:56.130 --> 00:19:58.010
  • progress and receive the
  • 00:19:58.010 --> 00:19:59.280
  • most from God, not during
  • 00:19:59.280 --> 00:20:01.240
  • the easiest times in our
  • 00:20:01.240 --> 00:20:03.050
  • life, but during wilderness
  • 00:20:03.050 --> 00:20:05.010
  • times where we have to dig
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:06.210
  • deep.
  • 00:20:06.210 --> 00:20:07.110
  • Of course wildernesses look
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:09.040
  • very different for different
  • 00:20:09.040 --> 00:20:10.150
  • people at different times.
  • 00:20:10.150 --> 00:20:12.000
  • Wildernesses can come in
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:13.170
  • many ways.
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:14.110
  • But a wilderness experience
  • 00:20:14.110 --> 00:20:16.180
  • is when you feel perhaps
  • 00:20:16.180 --> 00:20:18.030
  • empty inside, or you've lost
  • 00:20:18.030 --> 00:20:20.070
  • something in your life
  • 00:20:20.070 --> 00:20:21.080
  • that's very important to
  • 00:20:21.080 --> 00:20:22.190
  • you, a time when you have no
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:24.020
  • crutches that can satisfy
  • 00:20:24.020 --> 00:20:25.180
  • you, when you have a need
  • 00:20:25.180 --> 00:20:27.140
  • that no one can meet but
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:28.250
  • God.
  • 00:20:28.250 --> 00:20:29.180
  • These types of experiences
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:31.200
  • force us to depend on Him
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:34.080
  • and depending on Him,
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:36.070
  • because there's no where
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:37.030
  • else we can go, beloved,
  • 00:20:37.030 --> 00:20:39.020
  • this dependency creates a
  • 00:20:39.020 --> 00:20:40.290
  • river for God to flow into
  • 00:20:40.290 --> 00:20:43.150
  • our lives from.
  • 00:20:43.150 --> 00:20:44.210
  • I want you to hear me today.
  • 00:20:44.210 --> 00:20:45.290
  • When I look back in my life,
  • 00:20:45.290 --> 00:20:48.090
  • the times that I've grown
  • 00:20:48.090 --> 00:20:49.270
  • the most have been the times
  • 00:20:49.270 --> 00:20:51.240
  • that have been the most
  • 00:20:51.240 --> 00:20:52.230
  • difficult times.
  • 00:20:52.230 --> 00:20:53.280
  • And now I look and I see the
  • 00:20:53.280 --> 00:20:55.260
  • platform that I'm on and the
  • 00:20:55.260 --> 00:20:57.150
  • place of ministry that I'm
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:20:59.060
  • able to minister out of and
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:00.290
  • you know what?
  • 00:21:00.290 --> 00:21:01.230
  • The foundation is the
  • 00:21:01.230 --> 00:21:03.160
  • So listen, don't waste your
  • 00:21:04.200 --> 00:21:07.200
  • wilderness.
  • 00:21:07.200 --> 00:21:08.190
  • Learn how to walk through
  • 00:21:08.190 --> 00:21:09.210
  • the wilderness times with a
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:11.010
  • anticipation that even
  • 00:21:12.260 --> 00:21:14.120
  • though things might feel
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:15.260
  • empty, God is doing a great
  • 00:21:15.260 --> 00:21:18.130
  • work, get it now, underneath
  • 00:21:18.130 --> 00:21:20.120
  • the surface.
  • 00:21:20.120 --> 00:21:21.170
  • Your drinking deeply during
  • 00:21:21.170 --> 00:21:23.260
  • these times even though they
  • 00:21:23.260 --> 00:21:25.200
  • may feel very unpleasant.
  • 00:21:25.200 --> 00:21:28.020
  • Remember Paul learned this
  • 00:21:28.020 --> 00:21:29.090
  • lesson.
  • 00:21:29.090 --> 00:21:30.130
  • He learned when he was in a
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:31.190
  • with a messenger of Satan,
  • 00:21:33.060 --> 00:21:34.190
  • it was a wilderness
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:35.180
  • experience of types.
  • 00:21:35.180 --> 00:21:36.190
  • He called to God, "God take
  • 00:21:36.190 --> 00:21:38.070
  • this away from me.
  • 00:21:38.070 --> 00:21:38.290
  • This is painful.
  • 00:21:38.290 --> 00:21:40.040
  • This hurts."
  • 00:21:40.040 --> 00:21:41.050
  • to him, "Paul, My power is
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:44.140
  • gonna be perfected in your
  • 00:21:44.140 --> 00:21:46.100
  • weakness and in your
  • 00:21:46.100 --> 00:21:48.040
  • weakness Paul I'm gonna make
  • 00:21:48.040 --> 00:21:50.210
  • you strong."
  • 00:21:50.210 --> 00:21:52.190
  • Beloved, I love you.
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:53.250
  • Most importantly God loves
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:56.070
  • you and if you'll learn to
  • 00:21:56.070 --> 00:21:57.200
  • walk through your wilderness
  • 00:21:57.200 --> 00:21:59.070
  • praising God by faith,
  • 00:21:59.070 --> 00:22:01.230
  • thanking Him that you're
  • 00:22:01.230 --> 00:22:02.220
  • receiving something deep in
  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:04.140
  • it, God's gonna do for you
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:06.030
  • some very special things
  • 00:22:06.030 --> 00:22:08.020
  • that He can't do for you
  • 00:22:08.020 --> 00:22:09.270
  • except when you're in the
  • 00:22:09.270 --> 00:22:11.150
  • wilderness.
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:12.050
  • Remember life is a cycle.
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:13.260
  • It's seasons of joy and
  • 00:22:13.260 --> 00:22:15.120
  • breakthrough and then
  • 00:22:15.120 --> 00:22:16.120
  • seasons of trials and
  • 00:22:16.120 --> 00:22:17.280
  • wilderness.
  • 00:22:17.280 --> 00:22:18.200
  • Let's learn how to handle
  • 00:22:18.200 --> 00:22:20.140
  • both with a joyful and a
  • 00:22:20.140 --> 00:22:22.130
  • thankful heart.
  • 00:22:22.130 --> 00:22:23.180
  • Let's walk by faith not by
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:25.240
  • sight and not by feeling and
  • 00:22:25.240 --> 00:22:27.290
  • when we do that we're gonna
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:29.010
  • get strong, and
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:30.090
  • when we get strong beloved
  • 00:22:30.090 --> 00:22:31.120
  • ones, we're gonna become

  • 00:22:38.100 --> 00:22:39.120
  • As you can see I'm here in

  • Jerusalem.
  • 00:22:40.170 --> 00:22:41.190
  • Behind me you can see the
  • 00:22:41.190 --> 00:22:42.150
  • Western Wall.
  • 00:22:42.150 --> 00:22:43.180
  • Listen, when I got into my
  • 00:22:43.180 --> 00:22:44.240
  • hotel room here I turned on
  • 00:22:44.240 --> 00:22:46.130
  • the television and what did
  • 00:22:46.130 --> 00:22:47.240
  • I see?
  • 00:22:47.240 --> 00:22:48.150
  • I saw the network that's
  • 00:22:48.150 --> 00:22:49.190
  • broadcasting Discovering the
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:51.070

  • people.
  • 00:23:01.230 --> 00:23:02.130
  • This is a forerunner
  • 00:23:02.130 --> 00:23:03.200
  • ministry that's helping
  • 00:23:03.200 --> 00:23:05.060
  • Jewish people to understand
