  • Who is God and why did He
  • 00:01:09.210 --> 00:01:11.170
  • create us?
  • 00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:12.160
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Amen.
  • 00:01:12.160 --> 00:01:13.100

  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:17.240
  • He made us and why He made
  • 00:02:17.240 --> 00:02:19.190
  • us.
  • 00:02:19.190 --> 00:02:20.130
  • Again, please watch every
  • 00:02:20.130 --> 00:02:22.150
  • episode in this series.
  • 00:02:22.150 --> 00:02:24.100
  • Now let's do just a little
  • 00:02:24.100 --> 00:02:25.260
  • bit of review today out of
  • 00:02:25.260 --> 00:02:27.160
  • respect for those that have
  • 00:02:27.160 --> 00:02:28.140
  • been tuning in for every
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:29.110
  • episode.
  • 00:02:29.110 --> 00:02:30.030
  • I'm going to keep my review
  • 00:02:30.030 --> 00:02:31.000
  • quick, but I do want to just
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:32.180
  • touch on a few key points.
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:34.010
  • Let's go to the first verse,
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:35.070
  • Genesis 1 verse 1.
  • 00:02:35.070 --> 00:02:36.220
  • "In the beginning," what
  • 00:02:36.220 --> 00:02:37.250
  • beginning?
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:38.190
  • It's not the beginning of
  • 00:02:38.190 --> 00:02:39.080
  • God, because He is
  • 00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:40.220
  • unlimited.
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:42.030
  • He's without beginning.
  • 00:02:42.030 --> 00:02:43.100
  • He's without end.
  • 00:02:43.100 --> 00:02:44.230
  • He's beyond fully ever
  • 00:02:44.230 --> 00:02:45.290
  • knowing.
  • 00:02:45.290 --> 00:02:46.280
  • He's that big.
  • 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:47.270
  • He's that grand.
  • 00:02:47.270 --> 00:02:48.260
  • He's that majestic.
  • 00:02:48.260 --> 00:02:50.050
  • He's always more.
  • 00:02:50.050 --> 00:02:51.110
  • When Moses asked Him His
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:53.230
  • name He said, "I am that I
  • 00:02:53.230 --> 00:02:55.130
  • am and I will be who I will
  • 00:02:55.130 --> 00:02:56.290
  • God is so great and this is
  • 00:02:57.270 --> 00:02:59.260
  • why we're in awe of Him.
  • 00:02:59.260 --> 00:03:01.130
  • We can't ever fully describe
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:04.010
  • God.
  • 00:03:04.010 --> 00:03:04.220
  • He's that big beloved.
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:06.070
  • He's limitless.
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:08.120
  • And so when we read, "In the
  • 00:03:08.120 --> 00:03:09.140
  • beginning," this is not the
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:11.030
  • beginning of God's history.
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:13.020
  • He has no beginning.
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:14.280
  • This is the beginning of our
  • 00:03:14.280 --> 00:03:16.030
  • history.
  • 00:03:16.030 --> 00:03:17.020
  • "In the beginning Elohim,
  • 00:03:17.020 --> 00:03:18.200
  • God created the heavens and
  • 00:03:18.200 --> 00:03:20.020
  • the earth."
  • 00:03:20.020 --> 00:03:21.000
  • Elohim, which is God plural,
  • 00:03:23.000 --> 00:03:26.000
  • speaks of His multi
  • 00:03:26.000 --> 00:03:27.160
  • dimensional nature; Father,
  • 00:03:27.160 --> 00:03:30.110
  • there's both the male and
  • 00:03:32.050 --> 00:03:33.050
  • female attributes.
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:34.210
  • He's one God and yet within
  • 00:03:34.210 --> 00:03:36.060
  • Him there's a multi
  • 00:03:36.060 --> 00:03:38.000
  • dimensional aspect.
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:39.270
  • You can't expect to
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:41.030
  • understand this, God is
  • 00:03:41.030 --> 00:03:42.170
  • spirit, even as you can't
  • 00:03:42.170 --> 00:03:44.110
  • understand how He has always
  • 00:03:44.110 --> 00:03:46.150
  • been and didn't come from
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:48.230
  • anywhere.
  • 00:03:48.230 --> 00:03:49.240
  • Let's continue on.
  • 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:51.060
  • "In the beginning Elohim
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:52.100
  • created the heavens and the
  • 00:03:52.100 --> 00:03:53.030
  • earth.
  • 00:03:53.030 --> 00:03:53.270
  • The earth was formless and
  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:55.190
  • void."
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:56.190
  • When it says here in verse
  • 00:03:56.190 --> 00:03:57.170
  • 2, "The earth was formless
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:03:59.070
  • and void," He's not speaking
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:01.130
  • here about what you would
  • 00:04:01.130 --> 00:04:02.200
  • see from outer space.
  • 00:04:02.200 --> 00:04:04.230
  • When you look from down from
  • 00:04:04.230 --> 00:04:05.240
  • outer space unto the earth
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:07.160
  • you see a globe, right?
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:09.100
  • You see a round sphere, with
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:10.180
  • blue for the water and brown
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:12.080
  • or green from the dry land.
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.030
  • But in verse number 2 when
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:15.140
  • it says, "The earth was
  • 00:04:15.140 --> 00:04:16.110
  • formless and void," you
  • 00:04:16.110 --> 00:04:17.220
  • couldn't see a globe yet.
  • 00:04:17.220 --> 00:04:19.170
  • You couldn't see dry land
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:21.160
  • separated from the waters.
  • 00:04:21.160 --> 00:04:23.040
  • This is just a primordial
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:25.120
  • state.
  • 00:04:25.120 --> 00:04:26.080
  • The earth was formless.
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:27.190
  • It didn't have a form yet.
  • 00:04:27.190 --> 00:04:29.000
  • It didn't have a shape yet.
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:30.230
  • It hadn't been created yet.
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:32.190
  • The scripture says, "It was
  • 00:04:32.190 --> 00:04:34.080
  • formless and void."
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:35.210
  • It was empty and like a
  • 00:04:35.210 --> 00:04:37.190
  • wasteland.
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:38.230
  • "And darkness was over the
  • 00:04:38.230 --> 00:04:40.260
  • surface of the deep."
  • 00:04:40.260 --> 00:04:42.060
  • Now let's go back once
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:43.190
  • again, a verse earlier.
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:45.130
  • Hear the Word of God.
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.150
  • "In the beginning God
  • 00:04:46.150 --> 00:04:47.250
  • created."
  • 00:04:47.250 --> 00:04:48.180
  • So we're talking about the
  • 00:04:48.180 --> 00:04:49.290
  • creation story.
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:51.160
  • "In the beginning God
  • 00:04:51.160 --> 00:04:52.190
  • created the heavens and the
  • 00:04:52.190 --> 00:04:53.150
  • earth.
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:54.060
  • The earth was formless and
  • 00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:55.050
  • void."
  • 00:04:55.050 --> 00:04:55.260
  • Now get it, "And darkness
  • 00:04:55.260 --> 00:04:58.190
  • was over the surface of the
  • 00:04:58.190 --> 00:04:59.230
  • deep and the Spirit of God
  • 00:04:59.230 --> 00:05:01.180
  • was moving over the surface
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:02.150
  • of the waters."
  • 00:05:02.150 --> 00:05:03.230
  • Beloved, listen to something
  • 00:05:03.230 --> 00:05:06.030
  • that's important to
  • 00:05:06.030 --> 00:05:06.290
  • God takes responsibility for
  • 00:05:08.190 --> 00:05:11.190
  • creating even the darkness.
  • 00:05:11.270 --> 00:05:14.270
  • We're listening to the
  • 00:05:14.270 --> 00:05:16.020
  • As God reveals the creation
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:18.270
  • story we find that He
  • 00:05:18.270 --> 00:05:20.200
  • created even the darkness.
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:22.230
  • Listen what the Lord said in
  • 00:05:22.230 --> 00:05:24.250
  • the book of Isaiah chapter
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:26.030
  • 45 verses number 5 through
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:28.020
  • 7.
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:29.130
  • 5, "He said, "I am the
  • 00:05:30.140 --> 00:05:31.140
  • Lord."
  • 00:05:31.140 --> 00:05:32.170
  • And when we see the word
  • 00:05:32.170 --> 00:05:33.070
  • Lord there, once again,
  • 00:05:33.070 --> 00:05:34.190
  • that's the Hebrew name of
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:36.030
  • God composed of the four
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:37.240
  • Hei and it means the Eternal
  • 00:05:39.280 --> 00:05:41.140
  • One.
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:42.110
  • I am that I am.
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:43.170
  • I will be whom I will be."
  • 00:05:43.170 --> 00:05:44.270
  • God alone is the Creator.
  • 00:05:44.270 --> 00:05:47.060
  • Everything else that exists
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:49.020
  • beloved one, things both
  • 00:05:49.020 --> 00:05:51.050
  • visible and invisible,
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:54.090
  • everything else has been
  • 00:05:54.090 --> 00:05:55.280
  • created by Him.
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:57.060
  • "I am the Lord and there is
  • 00:05:57.060 --> 00:05:58.150
  • no other, besides me there
  • 00:05:58.160 --> 00:06:01.180
  • is no God."
  • 00:06:01.180 --> 00:06:03.260
  • Then the Lord said this,
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:05.130
  • "There is no one besides me.
  • 00:06:05.130 --> 00:06:07.280
  • There is no other," verse 7,
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:10.200
  • "the one forming light and
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:14.170
  • creating darkness."
  • 00:06:14.170 --> 00:06:17.050
  • Look again, God takes
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:19.070
  • responsibility for the
  • 00:06:19.070 --> 00:06:20.050
  • darkness.
  • 00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:20.260
  • He said, "The one forming
  • 00:06:20.260 --> 00:06:22.120
  • light and creating darkness,
  • 00:06:22.120 --> 00:06:25.080
  • causing well being and
  • 00:06:25.120 --> 00:06:28.120
  • creating calamity."
  • 00:06:28.120 --> 00:06:29.290
  • The King James actually
  • 00:06:29.290 --> 00:06:31.040
  • translates that verse, that
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:32.270
  • word calamity for evil.
  • 00:06:32.270 --> 00:06:34.270
  • Listen again, "I am the
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:35.170
  • Lord, there is no other.
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:37.070
  • The one forming light and
  • 00:06:37.070 --> 00:06:39.230
  • creating darkness, causing
  • 00:06:39.230 --> 00:06:41.190
  • well being and creating
  • 00:06:41.190 --> 00:06:43.070
  • calamity.
  • 00:06:43.070 --> 00:06:44.130
  • I am the Lord who does all
  • 00:06:45.270 --> 00:06:48.270
  • these things."
  • 00:06:49.110 --> 00:06:52.110
  • You see one of the benefits
  • 00:06:52.110 --> 00:06:54.140
  • Bible, is we get such a
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:57.260
  • broader picture of God's
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:07:00.100
  • nature, personality and the
  • 00:07:00.100 --> 00:07:02.230
  • ways that He operates.
  • 00:07:02.230 --> 00:07:04.140
  • And church, when we study
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:05.230
  • find is that God takes
  • 00:07:08.050 --> 00:07:10.040
  • responsibility for bringing
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:12.050
  • hard times into people's
  • 00:07:12.050 --> 00:07:13.240
  • life, as well as from
  • 00:07:13.240 --> 00:07:15.150
  • bringing times of refreshing
  • 00:07:15.150 --> 00:07:17.120
  • and blessing.
  • 00:07:17.120 --> 00:07:18.100
  • Let me give you some
  • 00:07:18.100 --> 00:07:19.030
  • examples of this.
  • 00:07:19.030 --> 00:07:20.180
  • What about when Israel
  • 00:07:20.180 --> 00:07:21.290
  • thousands of the Israelites
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:26.040
  • to be bitten by serpents in
  • 00:07:26.040 --> 00:07:27.260
  • the wilderness, where they
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:29.150
  • I could go on and on.
  • 00:07:30.280 --> 00:07:32.040
  • company was rebelling
  • 00:07:33.210 --> 00:07:35.090
  • against Moses and the Lord
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:37.140
  • caused an earthquake to open
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:39.080
  • up and the earth swallowed
  • 00:07:39.080 --> 00:07:40.270
  • You see today if something
  • 00:07:42.180 --> 00:07:44.110
  • bad happens, no one wants to
  • 00:07:44.110 --> 00:07:46.170
  • say that God could be
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:47.160
  • responsible for that, but
  • 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:49.000
  • that God uses even the
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:53.160
  • darkness to accomplish His
  • 00:07:53.160 --> 00:07:55.140
  • own purposes.
  • 00:07:55.140 --> 00:07:57.010
  • God takes responsibility
  • 00:07:57.010 --> 00:07:58.290
  • universe.
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:01.290
  • I know that there's many
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:02.220
  • questions that you would
  • 00:08:02.220 --> 00:08:04.010
  • ask, but I want to delve a
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:05.180
  • little bit deeper right now
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:07.020
  • some of your concerns and
  • 00:08:08.080 --> 00:08:08.280
  • questions, by giving you
  • 00:08:08.280 --> 00:08:10.160
  • more scriptural ammunition
  • 00:08:10.160 --> 00:08:12.190
  • and understanding for this
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:13.240
  • truth that I'm proclaiming.
  • 00:08:13.240 --> 00:08:15.100
  • Think about for example the
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:17.030
  • I'm going now to the book of
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:19.170
  • 2 Corinthians and I'm
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:21.130
  • looking at the 12th chapter,
  • 00:08:21.130 --> 00:08:23.100
  • verses number 7 through 10.
  • 00:08:23.100 --> 00:08:25.200
  • I want you to hear the Word
  • 00:08:25.200 --> 00:08:27.130
  • of God and I want you to
  • 00:08:27.130 --> 00:08:29.030
  • listen very carefully,
  • 00:08:29.030 --> 00:08:30.260
  • because when we read this
  • 00:08:30.260 --> 00:08:32.080
  • remarkable section of
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:33.220
  • scripture, you're gonna see
  • 00:08:33.220 --> 00:08:36.060
  • how God sent a messenger of
  • 00:08:36.100 --> 00:08:39.100
  • Satan himself to torment
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:41.220
  • Paul and God did it for a
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:43.280
  • purpose and the purpose that
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:45.230
  • God had was a good purpose
  • 00:08:45.230 --> 00:08:47.270
  • and it brought about fruit
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.100
  • and life.
  • 00:08:49.100 --> 00:08:50.070
  • In other words, God used
  • 00:08:50.070 --> 00:08:52.070
  • evil to accomplish a higher
  • 00:08:52.090 --> 00:08:55.090
  • good.
  • 00:08:55.090 --> 00:08:56.000
  • Hear the Word of God.
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:08:56.280
  • Once again, book of
  • 00:08:56.280 --> 00:08:58.060
  • Corinthians, 2 Corinthians
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:08:59.120
  • 12 verse 7-10.
  • 00:08:59.120 --> 00:09:01.070
  • Paul is speaking.
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:02.020
  • He says this, "Because of
  • 00:09:02.020 --> 00:09:04.100
  • the surpassing greatness of
  • 00:09:04.100 --> 00:09:06.100
  • the revelations."
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:07.280
  • Paul is saying here, because
  • 00:09:07.280 --> 00:09:09.020
  • of all the revelation that
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:10.230
  • he had received.
  • 00:09:10.230 --> 00:09:11.270
  • Continuing on, "For this
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.100
  • reason to keep me from
  • 00:09:13.100 --> 00:09:15.210
  • exalting myself there was
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:17.290
  • given me a thorn in the
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:19.080
  • flesh, a messenger of Satan
  • 00:09:19.200 --> 00:09:22.200
  • to torment me to keep me
  • 00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:24.230
  • from exalting myself."
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:26.140
  • So I want to stop for a
  • 00:09:26.140 --> 00:09:27.060
  • second.
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:28.000
  • We'll continue on.
  • 00:09:28.000 --> 00:09:28.290
  • I want to just take a pause
  • 00:09:28.290 --> 00:09:29.290
  • to put it in perspective.
  • 00:09:29.290 --> 00:09:31.190
  • Paul is saying that this
  • 00:09:31.190 --> 00:09:33.140
  • messenger of Satan was sent
  • 00:09:33.140 --> 00:09:35.290
  • to him, because of the
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:37.240
  • abundance of revelation that
  • 00:09:37.240 --> 00:09:39.200
  • he received to keep him from
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:41.190
  • exalting himself.
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:42.250
  • In other words, God sent
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:45.010
  • this messenger of Satan into
  • 00:09:45.010 --> 00:09:47.070
  • Paul's life to torment him
  • 00:09:47.070 --> 00:09:49.190
  • in order that Paul would
  • 00:09:49.190 --> 00:09:51.030
  • stay humble and would stay
  • 00:09:51.030 --> 00:09:53.050
  • dependent, because God knew
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:55.170
  • that if He didn't do this,
  • 00:09:55.170 --> 00:09:57.150
  • if He didn't send this thorn
  • 00:09:57.150 --> 00:09:59.010
  • in the flesh, that Paul
  • 00:09:59.010 --> 00:10:00.130
  • actually caused a messenger
  • 00:10:00.130 --> 00:10:01.220
  • of Satan into his life, Paul
  • 00:10:01.220 --> 00:10:03.170
  • would have had a tendency
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:05.090
  • because of the natural
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:06.130
  • humanness [] of the
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:07.110
  • flesh, to begin to become
  • 00:10:07.110 --> 00:10:08.130
  • 00:10:11.160 --> 00:10:17.270
  • 00:10:18.000 --> 00:10:22.110

  • She looked like she was like
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:33.010

  • without telling her parents,
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:22.130
  • ran over to the crusade,

  • believed she was gonna get

  • surpassing greatness of the
  • 00:12:38.280 --> 00:12:41.000

  • 00:12:41.000 --> 00:12:43.120
  • to keep me from exalting
  • 00:12:43.120 --> 00:12:44.070

  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:57.250
  • In other words Paul is
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:58.190
  • saying, "Father, God, take
  • 00:12:58.190 --> 00:13:00.070

  • 00:13:04.110 --> 00:13:06.030
  • And he continues on, verse 9.

  • 00:13:19.070 --> 00:13:20.080
  • In other words, God was
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:21.140
  • listen, I'm not gonna take

  • you and in your weakness you
  • 00:13:37.180 --> 00:13:39.150

  • 00:13:39.150 --> 00:13:42.020
  • God says, "Paul I'm gonna
  • 00:13:42.020 --> 00:13:43.260
  • use that to empower you to
  • 00:13:43.260 --> 00:13:46.090
  • bring empowerment to your

  • life by My spirit."
  • 00:13:48.070 --> 00:13:50.000
  • Listen again, "And He said
  • 00:13:50.000 --> 00:13:51.020
  • to me, "My grace is
  • 00:13:51.020 --> 00:13:52.130

  • weakness.
  • 00:13:57.270 --> 00:13:59.010
  • Most gladly therefore," Paul
  • 00:13:59.010 --> 00:14:00.130
  • continues, "I will rather
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:01.180
  • boast about my weaknesses so
  • 00:14:01.180 --> 00:14:03.080
  • that the power of Christ may
  • 00:14:03.080 --> 00:14:06.010
  • dwell in me.
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:06.230
  • Therefore I am well content
  • 00:14:06.230 --> 00:14:08.160
  • with weaknesses, with
  • 00:14:08.160 --> 00:14:10.070
  • insults, with distresses, with
  • 00:14:10.070 --> 00:14:12.250
  • persecutions, with
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:14.140
  • difficulties for Christ's
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:15.200
  • sake.
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:16.190
  • For when I am weak then I am
  • 00:14:16.190 --> 00:14:17.260
  • strong."
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:19.050
  • So beloved one, you can see
  • 00:14:19.050 --> 00:14:20.250
  • here that God is using
  • 00:14:20.250 --> 00:14:22.180
  • darkness, He's using
  • 00:14:22.180 --> 00:14:24.150
  • persecution, He's using
  • 00:14:24.150 --> 00:14:26.180
  • distress, He's using
  • 00:14:26.180 --> 00:14:28.060
  • weakenesses, He's using this
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:30.150
  • messenger of Satan to make
  • 00:14:30.150 --> 00:14:33.000
  • Paul weak, so that Paul
  • 00:14:33.000 --> 00:14:34.230
  • would become more dependent
  • 00:14:34.230 --> 00:14:36.030
  • upon the Lord.
  • 00:14:36.030 --> 00:14:37.050
  • And in Paul's dependency out
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:39.020
  • of his weakness the power of
  • 00:14:39.020 --> 00:14:40.290
  • God is perfected in his
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:43.240
  • life.
  • 00:14:43.240 --> 00:14:44.280
  • Consider this, the first
  • 00:14:44.280 --> 00:14:46.170
  • thing that the Father did in
  • 00:14:46.170 --> 00:14:48.280
  • Jesus' life after Jesus was
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:50.290
  • baptized in the Jordan
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:52.100
  • River, right after the
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:54.100
  • Spirit of the Lord descended
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:56.070
  • on Jesus as He came out of
  • 00:14:56.070 --> 00:14:58.000
  • And the voice spoke from
  • 00:14:59.080 --> 00:15:00.110
  • heaven saying, "You are my
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:01.230
  • beloved Son and in You I am
  • 00:15:01.230 --> 00:15:04.040
  • well pleased."
  • 00:15:04.040 --> 00:15:05.100
  • about beloved children of
  • 00:15:07.240 --> 00:15:08.280
  • God, in the Biblical
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:10.070
  • Spirit of God, not the
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:13.220
  • devil, but listen, but the
  • 00:15:13.220 --> 00:15:15.160
  • Spirit of God led Jesus into
  • 00:15:15.160 --> 00:15:18.120
  • the wilderness where Jesus
  • 00:15:18.120 --> 00:15:20.150
  • Says, "He fasted and prayed
  • 00:15:22.140 --> 00:15:24.020
  • for 40 days and 40 nights."
  • 00:15:24.020 --> 00:15:26.240
  • Jesus, listen now, He's
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:28.160
  • doing battle against the
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:29.290
  • powers of darkness.
  • 00:15:29.290 --> 00:15:31.150
  • And the scripture says that
  • 00:15:31.150 --> 00:15:32.250
  • after that 40 days Yeshua
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:35.210
  • came out of the wilderness,
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:37.200
  • listen now, "In the power of
  • 00:15:37.200 --> 00:15:40.020
  • the Spirit," because as He
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:42.040
  • did battle against the
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:43.180
  • forces of darkness,
  • 00:15:43.180 --> 00:15:45.020
  • depending on the Father, He
  • 00:15:45.020 --> 00:15:46.250
  • was strengthened.
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:48.160
  • In other words listen, the
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:50.060
  • Father knows that in order
  • 00:15:50.060 --> 00:15:52.260
  • not just for Jesus to come
  • 00:15:52.260 --> 00:15:54.100
  • out of the wilderness fully
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:55.170
  • empowered, but for all His
  • 00:15:55.170 --> 00:15:57.230
  • sons and daughters to become
  • 00:15:57.230 --> 00:15:59.270
  • fully matured and empowered,
  • 00:15:59.270 --> 00:16:02.080
  • in order for that process of
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:03.220
  • maturity and empowerment to
  • 00:16:03.220 --> 00:16:05.170
  • take place, listen, we need
  • 00:16:05.240 --> 00:16:08.240
  • an adversary.
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:11.130
  • Father created the darkness,
  • 00:16:11.130 --> 00:16:13.170
  • because He knew in order for
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:14.190
  • His sons and daughters to
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:16.070
  • fully develop they needed an
  • 00:16:16.070 --> 00:16:18.040
  • adversary.
  • 00:16:18.040 --> 00:16:19.140
  • They needed to overcome
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:21.080
  • resistance.
  • 00:16:21.080 --> 00:16:22.130
  • Seven times in the first
  • 00:16:22.130 --> 00:16:24.230
  • several chapters of
  • 00:16:24.230 --> 00:16:25.240
  • Revelation, in chapters 2
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:27.210
  • and 3, Jesus said, "He that
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:30.030
  • overcomes will inherit these
  • 00:16:30.030 --> 00:16:31.200
  • things."
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:32.240
  • God knew that in order for
  • 00:16:32.240 --> 00:16:34.120
  • us to fully mature we needed
  • 00:16:34.120 --> 00:16:36.140
  • resistance.
  • 00:16:36.140 --> 00:16:37.280
  • train themselves using
  • 00:16:39.270 --> 00:16:41.160
  • resistance, whether it's
  • 00:16:41.160 --> 00:16:42.250
  • lifting weights, whether
  • 00:16:42.250 --> 00:16:44.120
  • it's running, whether it's
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:45.180
  • through exercise, they all
  • 00:16:45.180 --> 00:16:47.230
  • the muscles, because the
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:51.090
  • resistance makes the muscles
  • 00:16:51.090 --> 00:16:53.270
  • strong.
  • 00:16:53.270 --> 00:16:54.220
  • God created the darkness
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:56.160
  • beloved ones, because He has
  • 00:16:56.160 --> 00:16:59.000
  • causes all things to work
  • 00:17:00.240 --> 00:17:03.150
  • together for good to those
  • 00:17:03.150 --> 00:17:05.070
  • that love Him and are called
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:07.120
  • And His purpose is to
  • 00:17:08.200 --> 00:17:10.160
  • conform us to the image of
  • 00:17:10.160 --> 00:17:12.020
  • His Son.
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:13.000
  • I want you to understand,
  • 00:17:13.000 --> 00:17:14.050
  • you don't have to make
  • 00:17:14.050 --> 00:17:15.100
  • excuses for God when bad
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:17.050
  • He is Adon Olam, He is
  • 00:17:18.090 --> 00:17:20.010
  • master of the world.
  • 00:17:20.010 --> 00:17:21.170
  • He runs the universe.
  • 00:17:21.170 --> 00:17:22.290
  • He's got a plan that's so
  • 00:17:22.290 --> 00:17:24.160
  • minds can conceive and He's
  • 00:17:26.180 --> 00:17:28.060
  • using it all for good and
  • 00:17:28.060 --> 00:17:30.030
  • He's accomplishing it all
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:31.230
  • for His purpose.
  • 00:17:31.230 --> 00:17:33.030
  • Listen, there was a woman
  • 00:17:33.030 --> 00:17:34.110
  • that we read about in the
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.230
  • Gospels, those of you that
  • 00:17:35.230 --> 00:17:36.290
  • have read the scriptures.
  • 00:17:36.290 --> 00:17:38.040
  • She was a prostitute in her
  • 00:17:38.040 --> 00:17:39.210
  • former life.
  • 00:17:39.210 --> 00:17:40.260
  • She came to Jesus, because
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:42.120
  • she had been delivered.
  • 00:17:42.120 --> 00:17:43.280
  • She fell in love with Him.
  • 00:17:43.280 --> 00:17:45.070
  • bondage and her sin and she
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:48.000
  • took a bottle of perfume
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:50.000
  • that was worth a whole
  • 00:17:50.000 --> 00:17:50.290
  • year's worth of wages during
  • 00:17:50.290 --> 00:17:52.290
  • that time period in history.
  • 00:17:52.290 --> 00:17:55.010
  • bottle of perfume on his
  • 00:17:55.290 --> 00:17:57.240
  • feet weeping, the people
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:17:59.260
  • around were aghast and they
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:01.150
  • said, "What is she doing?
  • 00:18:01.150 --> 00:18:03.010
  • What a waste of money.
  • 00:18:03.010 --> 00:18:04.210
  • That bottle of perfume was
  • 00:18:04.210 --> 00:18:06.060
  • worth a whole year's worth
  • 00:18:06.060 --> 00:18:07.160
  • of wages and she just poured
  • 00:18:07.160 --> 00:18:09.130
  • it all out on His feet."
  • 00:18:09.130 --> 00:18:11.150
  • And Jesus turned to those
  • 00:18:11.150 --> 00:18:12.280
  • that had no understanding of
  • 00:18:12.280 --> 00:18:14.150
  • what was going on and He
  • 00:18:14.150 --> 00:18:15.150
  • said, "You don't understand.
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:18.010
  • He that's been forgiven much
  • 00:18:18.060 --> 00:18:21.060
  • loves much.
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:22.210
  • He that's been forgiven
  • 00:18:22.210 --> 00:18:23.230
  • little loves little."
  • 00:18:23.230 --> 00:18:26.020
  • You see the point beloved
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:27.130
  • one, is that because that
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:29.100
  • woman had come out of a life
  • 00:18:29.100 --> 00:18:31.230
  • of such darkness, of such
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:34.060
  • bondage, her love for Jesus
  • 00:18:34.150 --> 00:18:37.150
  • was greater than those that
  • 00:18:37.150 --> 00:18:38.280
  • had been delivered from
  • 00:18:38.280 --> 00:18:40.010
  • lives where they were fairly
  • 00:18:40.010 --> 00:18:41.110
  • moral before they got saved.
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:43.150
  • In other words, God used the
  • 00:18:43.150 --> 00:18:45.150
  • darkness that she had once
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:47.000
  • experienced to actually
  • 00:18:47.000 --> 00:18:48.250
  • birth in her and create from
  • 00:18:48.250 --> 00:18:50.280
  • her a greater love than from
  • 00:18:50.280 --> 00:18:53.280
  • those that simply were you
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:55.230
  • know mediocre in their
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:18:57.010
  • former lives in terms of
  • 00:18:57.010 --> 00:18:59.050
  • God uses even the darkness
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:04.060
  • to create something
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:05.110
  • beautiful and something
  • 00:19:05.110 --> 00:19:06.240
  • good.
  • 00:19:06.240 --> 00:19:07.180
  • Out of our ashes beloved
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:09.050
  • So I want you to know as we
  • 00:19:11.120 --> 00:19:12.240
  • begin to close today's
  • 00:19:12.240 --> 00:19:13.180
  • episode, you can thank
  • 00:19:13.180 --> 00:19:15.100
  • Hashem.
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:16.290
  • You can thank Father God for
  • 00:19:16.290 --> 00:19:18.230
  • everything that happens in
  • 00:19:18.230 --> 00:19:20.200
  • your life and the reason why
  • 00:19:20.200 --> 00:19:22.270
  • church is He uses everything
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:25.190
  • for the good, even the
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:27.180
  • darkness He uses for good.
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:29.220
  • I want you to practice
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:30.250
  • faith.
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:31.210
  • I want you to recognize
  • 00:19:31.210 --> 00:19:33.010
  • Father God runs the world,
  • 00:19:33.010 --> 00:19:35.100
  • nothing takes Him by
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:37.120
  • Jesus said, "Not even a
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:39.080
  • sparrow falls to the ground
  • 00:19:39.080 --> 00:19:41.070
  • [] apart from Him.
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:42.130
  • we don't understand, but
  • 00:19:43.250 --> 00:19:45.070
  • don't let what you don't
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:46.090
  • understand keep you from
  • 00:19:46.090 --> 00:19:47.280
  • believing what God has
  • 00:19:47.280 --> 00:19:49.250
  • plainly revealed.
  • 00:19:49.250 --> 00:19:50.290
  • He loves you and you can
  • 00:19:50.290 --> 00:19:52.090
  • trust Him.
  • 00:19:52.090 --> 00:19:53.080
  • I love you too.
  • 00:19:53.080 --> 00:19:54.100
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- You know
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:03.240
  • the truths that we've been
  • 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:04.160
  • proclaiming today regarding
  • 00:20:04.160 --> 00:20:05.190
  • the darkness and
  • 00:20:07.040 --> 00:20:08.140
  • into light, it's powerful.
  • 00:20:10.070 --> 00:20:12.260
  • It's profound and we see
  • 00:20:12.260 --> 00:20:14.190
  • this so firmly rooted,
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:16.170
  • honey, in the Hebrew Bible.
  • 00:20:16.170 --> 00:20:18.160
  • We see in the Hebrew Bible
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:19.230
  • that God takes
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:20.140
  • responsibility, not just for
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:22.040
  • all the good things that
  • 00:20:22.040 --> 00:20:23.030
  • happen, but how He even
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:24.200
  • creates difficult
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:25.260
  • situations, things of
  • 00:20:25.260 --> 00:20:27.140
  • darkness, in order to bring
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:28.190
  • about something better from
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:30.110
  • them.
  • 00:20:30.110 --> 00:20:31.110
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- Yes,
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:32.030
  • wow, wow, that is so true
  • 00:20:32.030 --> 00:20:33.260
  • and I think anyone who has
  • 00:20:33.260 --> 00:20:35.070
  • had a deep walk in the Lord,
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:36.180
  • who really knows the Lord
  • 00:20:36.180 --> 00:20:38.010
  • has seen that.
  • 00:20:38.010 --> 00:20:39.110
  • in the dark places and
  • 00:20:41.160 --> 00:20:42.230
  • is revealed to us and just
  • 00:20:44.090 --> 00:20:46.150
  • we weren't in, walking in
  • 00:20:48.040 --> 00:20:50.070
  • prior to the darkness coming
  • 00:20:50.070 --> 00:20:51.170
  • upon us.
  • 00:20:51.170 --> 00:20:52.120
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER-
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:52.290
  • Absolutely.
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:53.250
  • Think about the woman that
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:54.240
  • anointed Jesus' feet with
  • 00:20:54.240 --> 00:20:56.030
  • the vial of perfume and she
  • 00:20:56.030 --> 00:20:58.120
  • was weeping and she was
  • 00:20:58.120 --> 00:20:59.230
  • rubbing His feet with her
  • 00:20:59.230 --> 00:21:01.080
  • tears and her hair.
  • 00:21:01.080 --> 00:21:03.010
  • And the people were looking
  • 00:21:03.010 --> 00:21:04.030
  • at it agast, like what in
  • 00:21:04.030 --> 00:21:05.250
  • the world is going on here,
  • 00:21:05.250 --> 00:21:07.090
  • this extravagant love?
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:08.240
  • It's just over the top and
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:09.250
  • what a waste of money.
  • 00:21:09.250 --> 00:21:12.010
  • And yet what did Jesus say?
  • 00:21:12.010 --> 00:21:13.170
  • "You guys don't understand.
  • 00:21:13.170 --> 00:21:15.140
  • He that's been forgiven much
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:17.210
  • loves much."
  • 00:21:17.210 --> 00:21:18.250
  • In other words, this woman
  • 00:21:18.250 --> 00:21:19.250
  • had come from a place of
  • 00:21:19.250 --> 00:21:20.230
  • total and absolute darkness,
  • 00:21:20.230 --> 00:21:23.050
  • but because Jesus
  • 00:21:23.050 --> 00:21:24.080
  • transformed her darkness
  • 00:21:24.080 --> 00:21:25.280
  • into light and brought her
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:27.100
  • out of the darkness into the
  • 00:21:27.100 --> 00:21:28.190
  • light, her love was so much
  • 00:21:28.190 --> 00:21:30.210
  • deeper because she had been
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:32.160
  • in such darkness then
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:34.030
  • someone who had never been
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:34.260
  • in darkness before.
  • 00:21:34.260 --> 00:21:35.270
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- Yes,
  • 00:21:35.270 --> 00:21:36.190
  • yes, He says He takes our
  • 00:21:36.190 --> 00:21:37.290
  • ashes and makes them into
  • 00:21:37.290 --> 00:21:40.060
  • beauty.
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:41.010
  • Who can do that but God?
  • 00:21:41.010 --> 00:21:42.200
  • There's no one else that can
  • 00:21:42.200 --> 00:21:43.250
  • do that and as there might
  • 00:21:43.250 --> 00:21:45.250
  • be somebody out there even
  • 00:21:45.250 --> 00:21:46.280
  • right now that's going
  • 00:21:46.280 --> 00:21:47.290
  • through a very, very dark
  • 00:21:47.290 --> 00:21:49.080
  • place; a loss of a deep
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:52.120
  • loved person to them, is
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:54.270
  • very painful, very dark
  • 00:21:54.270 --> 00:21:56.080
  • place to walk in, in the
  • 00:21:56.080 --> 00:21:57.240
  • letting go and the grieving
  • 00:21:57.240 --> 00:21:59.260
  • and the letting go.
  • 00:21:59.260 --> 00:22:00.280
  • But God wants you to know
  • 00:22:00.280 --> 00:22:02.170
  • today that He has light that
  • 00:22:03.100 --> 00:22:06.100
  • He's gonna birth out of this
  • 00:22:06.100 --> 00:22:08.000
  • darkness.
  • 00:22:08.000 --> 00:22:09.090
  • He says to hold on.
  • 00:22:09.090 --> 00:22:11.090
  • "Hold on to the darkness.
  • 00:22:11.090 --> 00:22:13.060
  • Search Me out and I will
  • 00:22:13.060 --> 00:22:15.160
  • reveal the light, the light
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:18.020
  • at the end of this tunnel
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:20.050
  • that's up ahead of you."
  • 00:22:20.050 --> 00:22:21.080
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Amen, even
  • 00:22:21.080 --> 00:22:22.050
  • as there was darkness before
  • 00:22:22.050 --> 00:22:23.130
  • there was light, so often
  • 00:22:23.130 --> 00:22:24.280
  • times in our life we
  • 00:22:24.280 --> 00:22:26.160
  • experience darkness.
  • 00:22:26.160 --> 00:22:28.040
  • It's just a preparation for
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:29.240
  • the great work that God's
  • 00:22:29.240 --> 00:22:31.050
  • gonna do.
  • 00:22:31.050 --> 00:22:32.010
  • You see without darkness we
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:33.140
  • wouldn't know what light
  • 00:22:33.140 --> 00:22:34.090
  • was.
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:35.090
  • And just to bring this down
  • 00:22:35.090 --> 00:22:36.290
  • to really make it nuts and
  • 00:22:36.290 --> 00:22:38.130
  • bolts, we read in scripture
  • 00:22:38.130 --> 00:22:40.060
  • there was a man that was
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:41.020
  • born blind.
  • 00:22:41.020 --> 00:22:42.170
  • I mean that's a tough place
  • 00:22:42.170 --> 00:22:43.070
  • to be, blind, but everybody
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:44.220
  • around you sees.
  • 00:22:44.220 --> 00:22:46.010
  • And the disciples of Jesus
  • 00:22:46.010 --> 00:22:47.070
  • said, "Who sinned, this man
  • 00:22:47.070 --> 00:22:49.050
  • or his parents that this man
  • 00:22:49.050 --> 00:22:50.230
  • should be born blind?"
  • 00:22:50.230 --> 00:22:52.030
  • I mean he was literally in
  • 00:22:52.030 --> 00:22:52.260
  • But Jesus said, "It was
  • 00:22:54.020 --> 00:22:55.090
  • neither this man or his
  • 00:22:55.090 --> 00:22:56.150
  • parents that sinned, but
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:57.210
  • the glory of God."
  • 00:23:00.040 --> 00:23:01.140
  • God brought him out of that
  • 00:23:01.140 --> 00:23:02.160
  • blindness.
  • 00:23:02.160 --> 00:23:03.140
  • He brought him out of that
  • 00:23:03.140 --> 00:23:04.110
  • darkness into the light.
  • 00:23:04.210 --> 00:23:07.210
  • And what a testimony it was
  • 00:23:07.210 --> 00:23:09.140
  • in that man's life and for
  • 00:23:09.140 --> 00:23:10.220
  • the entire world, even up to
  • 00:23:10.220 --> 00:23:12.130
  • this day as we read about
  • 00:23:12.130 --> 00:23:13.190
  • him.
  • 00:23:13.190 --> 00:23:14.190
  • God's gonna transform your
  • 00:23:14.190 --> 00:23:15.160
  • darkness into light as you
  • 00:23:15.160 --> 00:23:17.000
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Not long
  • 00:23:24.200 --> 00:23:25.240
  • ago Cynthia and I spent a
  • 00:23:25.240 --> 00:23:26.280
  • month in Israel and the
  • 00:23:26.280 --> 00:23:28.050
  • reason I went there was
  • 00:23:28.050 --> 00:23:29.210
  • primarily just to focus on
  • 00:23:29.210 --> 00:23:31.240
  • the word of God.
  • 00:23:31.240 --> 00:23:32.280
  • I was studying the Torah,
  • 00:23:32.280 --> 00:23:34.120
  • the first five books of our
  • 00:23:34.120 --> 00:23:35.080
  • Bible, Genesis through
  • 00:23:35.080 --> 00:23:36.190
  • Deuteronomy.
  • 00:23:36.190 --> 00:23:37.270
  • And I was astonished at how
  • 00:23:37.270 --> 00:23:39.180
  • precisely Father God spoke
  • 00:23:39.180 --> 00:23:42.070
  • into every area of the
  • 00:23:42.070 --> 00:23:44.090
  • children of Israel's lives.
  • 00:23:44.090 --> 00:23:45.240
  • I mean He addressed it all,
  • 00:23:45.240 --> 00:23:47.100
  • how to dress, what to eat,
  • 00:23:47.100 --> 00:23:49.230
  • how to handle yourself in
  • 00:23:49.230 --> 00:23:50.260
  • business, every area of
  • 00:23:50.260 --> 00:23:52.240
  • life, even about safe
  • 00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:54.060
  • guarding their property.
  • 00:23:54.060 --> 00:23:55.200
  • the law, but beloved, let's
  • 00:23:56.140 --> 00:23:58.090
  • not throw out the baby with
  • 00:23:58.090 --> 00:23:59.210
  • the bath water.
  • 00:23:59.210 --> 00:24:01.000
  • every area of our lives and
