  • 00:00:01.230 --> 00:00:03.020
  • Following God takes faith.
  • 00:00:03.050 --> 00:00:04.220
  • He never leads through fear.
  • 00:00:04.250 --> 00:00:06.070
  • Seeking confirmation from God doesn't upset him.
  • 00:00:06.100 --> 00:00:09.000
  • It's biblical.
  • 00:00:09.030 --> 00:00:10.070
  • Join my pastor, Robert Morris, as he explains how to use
  • 00:00:10.100 --> 00:00:13.070
  • the whole Bible and Godly counsel
  • 00:00:13.100 --> 00:00:15.110
  • to confirm his word in our lives.
  • 00:00:15.140 --> 00:00:17.150
  • 00:00:17.180 --> 00:00:32.030
  • PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS: I hope that this is inspiring you
  • 00:00:32.060 --> 00:00:35.070
  • to spend time with God on a regular basis,
  • 00:00:35.100 --> 00:00:37.290
  • and learn to hear his voice.
  • 00:00:38.020 --> 00:00:39.250
  • I told you when we began the series, the number question
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:42.240
  • that I've been asked, after 35 years of ministry,
  • 00:00:42.270 --> 00:00:46.070
  • is how can I hear God?
  • 00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:50.040
  • Probably the number two question would be
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:52.230
  • how can I know it's God?
  • 00:00:52.260 --> 00:00:55.020
  • And I want you to understand that it's not wrong to ask God
  • 00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:59.190
  • to confirm his word.
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:01.130
  • As a matter of fact, it's scriptural.
  • 00:01:01.160 --> 00:01:03.220
  • But let me give you a few scriptures before we get
  • 00:01:03.250 --> 00:01:05.230
  • to Judges 6.
  • 00:01:05.260 --> 00:01:07.120
  • Mark 16:20 says: "And they went out and preached everywhere,
  • 00:01:07.150 --> 00:01:12.020
  • the Lord working with them and," -- watch
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:16.130
  • these three words: "Confirming the word through
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:23.070
  • the accompanying signs."
  • 00:01:23.100 --> 00:01:26.060
  • Amen.
  • 00:01:26.090 --> 00:01:27.130
  • This is a verse about God confirming his word,
  • 00:01:27.160 --> 00:01:29.050
  • where Jesus is quoting the law, quoting from Deuteronomy.
  • 00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:33.010
  • And he's talking about when you have an offended brother,
  • 00:01:33.040 --> 00:01:36.270
  • you go to him first by yourself, and then you
  • 00:01:37.000 --> 00:01:39.050
  • take someone else with you if he doesn't hear you.
  • 00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:41.200
  • Matthew 18:16.
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:43.240
  • "But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more,
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:47.080
  • that," -- now, here's the quote from the Old Testament:
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:50.070
  • "By the mouth of two or three witnesses,
  • 00:01:50.100 --> 00:01:52.270
  • every word may be established."
  • 00:01:53.000 --> 00:01:56.170
  • This word established means made firm.
  • 00:01:56.200 --> 00:01:59.170
  • Every word may be made firm, which is actually what
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:03.170
  • the word confirm means.
  • 00:02:03.200 --> 00:02:05.260
  • It means to make something firm.
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:07.280
  • So that's when we ask God to confirm it, to establish it,
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:11.120
  • to make it firm.
  • 00:02:11.150 --> 00:02:12.240
  • And then Paul quotes this verse as well from the Old Testament.
  • 00:02:12.270 --> 00:02:15.050
  • 2 Corinthians 13:1.
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:18.040
  • Says: "This will be the third time I'm coming to you."
  • 00:02:18.070 --> 00:02:21.120
  • It's actually the third letter that he wrote,
  • 00:02:21.150 --> 00:02:23.040
  • even though we call it 2 Corinthians.
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:24.290
  • "This will be the third time I'm coming to you.
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:26.190
  • By the mouth of two or three witnesses, every word
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:30.240
  • shall be established."
  • 00:02:30.270 --> 00:02:33.280
  • So how do we call for confirmation?
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:35.260
  • How do we ask God to confirm it?
  • 00:02:35.290 --> 00:02:37.140
  • Let's start in Judges 6.
  • 00:02:37.170 --> 00:02:39.250
  • If you remember, this is the story of Gideon.
  • 00:02:39.280 --> 00:02:41.280
  • He asked a fleece.
  • 00:02:42.010 --> 00:02:43.290
  • Everyone knows about Gideon's fleece.
  • 00:02:44.020 --> 00:02:45.200
  • But even before he asked for the fleece,
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:49.130
  • he asked God to confirm his word.
  • 00:02:49.160 --> 00:02:52.010
  • All right?
  • 00:02:52.040 --> 00:02:53.000
  • And I want to explain something to you.
  • 00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:54.070
  • There were so much -- so many scriptures I could read,
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:56.060
  • so let's go back to the quiet time.
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:02:57.240
  • Read all of Judges 6 and 7, you'll love it.
  • 00:02:57.270 --> 00:03:00.130
  • But it says that the angel of the Lord came and set under
  • 00:03:00.160 --> 00:03:04.130
  • a terebinth tree, and began to talk with Gideon.
  • 00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:08.160
  • Now, I need you to understand that most theologians,
  • 00:03:08.190 --> 00:03:12.130
  • and I would be one of those included in this category,
  • 00:03:12.160 --> 00:03:14.230
  • believe that when the Old Testament says
  • 00:03:14.260 --> 00:03:17.090
  • the angel of the Lord, that it's referring to Jesus.
  • 00:03:17.120 --> 00:03:20.160
  • It's referring to God himself.
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:21.290
  • Not an angel, but the angel of the Lord.
  • 00:03:22.020 --> 00:03:26.040
  • And it's normally always capitalized, but here's one of
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:29.150
  • the proof texts of why we believe that it's God.
  • 00:03:29.180 --> 00:03:32.220
  • Because four times in Judges 6, when Gideon is talking to
  • 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:36.150
  • the angel of the Lord, it will say,
  • 00:03:36.180 --> 00:03:39.160
  • "And the Lord said to him," and it's referring to
  • 00:03:39.190 --> 00:03:44.090
  • the angel of the Lord.
  • 00:03:44.120 --> 00:03:45.140
  • But it says -- so Gideon said this, "And the Lord,"
  • 00:03:45.170 --> 00:03:48.140
  • he's talking to the angel of the Lord, but it says,
  • 00:03:48.170 --> 00:03:50.080
  • the Bible says, "And the Lord said to him."
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:53.150
  • So this is just one of the passages that we believe
  • 00:03:53.180 --> 00:03:56.050
  • is a proof text that shows the angel of the Lord
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:58.110
  • is the Lord himself, or Jesus.
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:01.040
  • All right?
  • 00:04:01.070 --> 00:04:02.040
  • So we're picking up on this, all right?
  • 00:04:02.070 --> 00:04:03.210
  • Judges 6:16.
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:06.070
  • "And the Lord said to him, 'Surely I will be with you,
  • 00:04:06.100 --> 00:04:13.160
  • and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.'
  • 00:04:13.190 --> 00:04:18.030
  • Then he," -- this is Gideon: "Said to him," capital H again,
  • 00:04:18.060 --> 00:04:22.220
  • Him: "If now I found favor in your sight,
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:25.210
  • then show me a sign that it is you who talk with me."
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:31.130
  • Even Gideon asked for confirmation that he was
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:35.020
  • hearing God's voice.
  • 00:04:35.050 --> 00:04:36.100
  • Judges 6:18.
  • 00:04:36.130 --> 00:04:37.100
  • He said: "'Do not depart from here, I pray,
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:38.160
  • until I come to you and bring out my offering
  • 00:04:38.190 --> 00:04:40.230
  • and set it before you.'
  • 00:04:40.260 --> 00:04:41.290
  • And he," -- capital H, God.
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:44.110
  • Jesus, "Said, 'I will wait until you come back.'"
  • 00:04:44.140 --> 00:04:47.110
  • Now, I need to say something about this.
  • 00:04:47.140 --> 00:04:49.160
  • This, to me, is one of the most amazing passages
  • 00:04:49.190 --> 00:04:52.200
  • in the Bible.
  • 00:04:52.230 --> 00:04:54.070
  • The Lord comes to the earth, talks to Gideon,
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:57.120
  • and Gideon says, "Show me a sign that it is you
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:05:03.160
  • who talks with me.
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:05.160
  • I need to know it's you, God."
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:06.240
  • And Gideon says, "Here's the sign.
  • 00:05:06.270 --> 00:05:08.090
  • Let me prepare an offering for you."
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:10.250
  • And God says, "I'll wait."
  • 00:05:10.280 --> 00:05:13.100
  • Please, let this dawn on you.
  • 00:05:13.130 --> 00:05:17.030
  • God will wait for you to know that it's him.
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:24.040
  • He's okay.
  • 00:05:24.070 --> 00:05:27.120
  • He has all eternity.
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:29.150
  • But we just don't think about this,
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:31.010
  • because of our society today.
  • 00:05:31.040 --> 00:05:32.190
  • There were no drive-thru's.
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:35.070
  • There were no microwaves.
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:40.070
  • He had to kill the goat, and clean it.
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:44.220
  • This was a several hour process.
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:48.120
  • And then, he brings it back.
  • 00:05:48.150 --> 00:05:49.220
  • Remember, he's asking for a sign.
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:51.070
  • He brings it back.
  • 00:05:51.100 --> 00:05:52.120
  • The Lord has a staff in his hand, is what it says.
  • 00:05:52.150 --> 00:05:55.220
  • He took the staff, and he touched --
  • 00:05:55.250 --> 00:05:58.060
  • Gideon put the meat, cooked meat, on a rock.
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:06:01.120
  • Poured broth over it.
  • 00:06:01.150 --> 00:06:02.280
  • The Lord touched it with the end of the staff,
  • 00:06:03.010 --> 00:06:06.100
  • and this is what it says: "And fire came out of
  • 00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:08.270
  • the rock and consumed all of it."
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:11.200
  • I would say he got a sign.
  • 00:06:11.230 --> 00:06:17.130
  • What do you think?
  • 00:06:17.160 --> 00:06:18.240
  • Would that be a sign?
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:19.240
  • Okay.
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.030
  • After he gets the sign, guess what he does?
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:26.130
  • Asks for another sign.
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:30.120
  • And it doesn't make God mad.
  • 00:06:30.150 --> 00:06:33.030
  • Look, let's read down.
  • 00:06:33.060 --> 00:06:34.030
  • Look at Judges 6:36.
  • 00:06:34.060 --> 00:06:36.060
  • This is where the fleece comes in.
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:37.110
  • A fleece is wool from a lamb.
  • 00:06:37.140 --> 00:06:41.030
  • "So Gideon said to God, 'If you will save Israel
  • 00:06:41.060 --> 00:06:43.190
  • by my hand as you have said -- look, I shall put
  • 00:06:43.220 --> 00:06:47.270
  • a fleece of wool on the threshing floor.
  • 00:06:48.000 --> 00:06:50.090
  • If there is dew on the fleece only,
  • 00:06:50.120 --> 00:06:54.010
  • and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that you will
  • 00:06:54.040 --> 00:06:58.260
  • save Israel by my hand, as you have said.'
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:02.270
  • And it was so.
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:04.020
  • When he rose early the next morning and squeezed
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:05.140
  • the fleece together, he wrung the dew out of the fleece,
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:08.100
  • a bowlful of water."
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:12.200
  • Okay.
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:13.130
  • There's another sign.
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:14.060
  • Would you believe now?
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:16.090
  • Next verse, Judges 6:39.
  • 00:07:16.120 --> 00:07:18.090
  • "Then Gideon said to God, 'Do not be angry with me,
  • 00:07:18.120 --> 00:07:20.230
  • but let me speak just once more," --
  • 00:07:20.260 --> 00:07:23.140
  • look at the patience of God.
  • 00:07:23.170 --> 00:07:24.250
  • You would think at some point, he'd say,
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:26.220
  • "I'm going to go to someone else.
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:29.190
  • This is -- now you're asking for a third sign."
  • 00:07:29.220 --> 00:07:36.210
  • "'Let me test, I pray, just once more with the fleece.
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:39.240
  • Let it now be dry only on the fleece, but on all
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:43.130
  • the ground let there be dew.'
  • 00:07:43.160 --> 00:07:46.010
  • And God did so that night.
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:50.040
  • It was dry on the fleece only, but there was dew
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:53.140
  • on all the ground."
  • 00:07:53.170 --> 00:07:55.140
  • So the -- let me just go on with the story some,
  • 00:07:55.170 --> 00:07:58.280
  • and then the points we'll cover kind of quickly.
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:00.110
  • But this is just such a great story.
  • 00:08:00.140 --> 00:08:01.220
  • So Gideon calls for the whole army of Israel.
  • 00:08:01.250 --> 00:08:05.050
  • 32.000 men show up.
  • 00:08:05.080 --> 00:08:08.140
  • And the Lord says, "This is too many.
  • 00:08:08.170 --> 00:08:12.290
  • Because if you win with 32.000 men, you'll take
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:19.250
  • the glory for yourself.
  • 00:08:19.280 --> 00:08:22.100
  • You'll all think it's because your army
  • 00:08:22.130 --> 00:08:23.230
  • was big and strong."
  • 00:08:23.260 --> 00:08:25.020
  • So he says, "I want you to make an announcement
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:27.170
  • that anyone who is afraid can go home."
  • 00:08:27.200 --> 00:08:33.280
  • Now, remember, think of the number.
  • 00:08:34.010 --> 00:08:35.020
  • 32.000 men are there.
  • 00:08:35.050 --> 00:08:37.090
  • Gideon says, "If anyone is afraid, you can go home."
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:42.210
  • 22.000 left.
  • 00:08:42.240 --> 00:08:48.000
  • I could just see the announcement.
  • 00:08:48.030 --> 00:08:50.070
  • "If anyone's afraid, you can go home."
  • 00:08:50.100 --> 00:08:54.120
  • "I'm kind of afraid.
  • 00:08:54.150 --> 00:08:55.070
  • You afraid?"
  • 00:08:55.100 --> 00:08:56.010
  • "Bless you.
  • 00:08:56.040 --> 00:08:56.250
  • Hey, we're going to head out.
  • 00:08:56.280 --> 00:08:58.000
  • But our prayers are with you."
  • 00:08:58.030 --> 00:09:03.020
  • "We'll be praying for you, Gideon."
  • 00:09:03.050 --> 00:09:07.240
  • 10.000 left, so he's still thinking,
  • 00:09:07.270 --> 00:09:09.170
  • hey, I got at least 10.000.
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:11.010
  • You know what God says?
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:12.280
  • "Too many.
  • 00:09:13.010 --> 00:09:14.220
  • You'll still take the credit.
  • 00:09:14.250 --> 00:09:16.260
  • So take 'em down to the river, and every man who laps water
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:21.180
  • like a dog, you set him over to the side."
  • 00:09:21.210 --> 00:09:27.030
  • Now, you know Gideon's thinking, oh, this is great.
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:28.290
  • We're going to get rid of the crazies.
  • 00:09:29.020 --> 00:09:32.190
  • And God says, "Take the dog lappers with you.
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:38.290
  • That's your army.
  • 00:09:39.020 --> 00:09:40.010
  • The dog lappers."
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:42.220
  • You know, there's a guy over there, going --
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.100
  • you know, like -- okay.
  • 00:09:44.130 --> 00:09:48.220
  • And then, listen.
  • 00:09:48.250 --> 00:09:51.260
  • Gideon needs another sign.
  • 00:09:51.290 --> 00:09:58.020
  • And God says, "Sneak down to the Midian camp at night.
  • 00:09:58.050 --> 00:10:03.050
  • I have prepared an encouraging word for you."
  • 00:10:03.080 --> 00:10:07.010
  • He goes down.
  • 00:10:07.040 --> 00:10:08.290
  • Gets behind a tree or something.
  • 00:10:09.020 --> 00:10:10.030
  • Hears a Midianite soldier telling other soldiers,
  • 00:10:10.060 --> 00:10:12.230
  • "I had a dream last night.
  • 00:10:12.260 --> 00:10:14.290
  • I had dreamed that a loaf of bread rolled down the hill
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:21.080
  • and hit my tent.
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:23.100
  • It knocked it over flat, and then it went through
  • 00:10:23.130 --> 00:10:25.050
  • and knocked over all of our tents."
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:28.120
  • And one of the other soldiers says,
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:29.270
  • "That means that it's Gideon.
  • 00:10:30.000 --> 00:10:33.080
  • That's the sword of Gideon.
  • 00:10:33.110 --> 00:10:35.070
  • God's on his side, God's not on our side,
  • 00:10:35.100 --> 00:10:38.260
  • and we're going to lose."
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:40.070
  • And encouraged Gideon.
  • 00:10:40.100 --> 00:10:43.270
  • There are three confirmations in scripture that --
  • 00:10:44.000 --> 00:10:48.140
  • get this, they work every time, for every person.
  • 00:10:48.170 --> 00:10:52.290
  • Not just for the special people.
  • 00:10:53.020 --> 00:10:54.200
  • They work every time.
  • 00:10:54.230 --> 00:10:56.120
  • Every time, for every person.
  • 00:10:56.150 --> 00:10:58.250
  • How can you know that you're God?
  • 00:10:58.280 --> 00:11:00.080
  • Now, I put 'em in the form of questions.
  • 00:11:00.110 --> 00:11:02.080
  • So we'll go through the questions in a moment.
  • 00:11:02.110 --> 00:11:05.130
  • But you know how I am about alliteration.
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:07.180
  • I like for my points to begin with the same letter,
  • 00:11:07.210 --> 00:11:10.210
  • but I didn't feel led to do that with these, but I still
  • 00:11:10.240 --> 00:11:12.240
  • thought of how I could do some alliteration.
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:15.290
  • I'm just gifted.
  • 00:11:16.020 --> 00:11:18.150
  • It's just a -- so, just so -- if you want to write 'em down,
  • 00:11:18.180 --> 00:11:21.120
  • you can remember.
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:22.140
  • So it's -- number one, his word, his wisdom,
  • 00:11:22.170 --> 00:11:26.130
  • and his ways.
  • 00:11:26.160 --> 00:11:28.020
  • His word, his wisdom, and his ways.
  • 00:11:28.050 --> 00:11:33.100
  • Now, I am so gifted, I thought of three more,
  • 00:11:33.130 --> 00:11:37.090
  • with a different letter.
  • 00:11:37.120 --> 00:11:39.290
  • Okay, look at this.
  • 00:11:40.020 --> 00:11:41.060
  • His principles, his people, and his peace.
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:46.170
  • His principles.
  • 00:11:46.200 --> 00:11:48.000
  • His word, his principles.
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:49.180
  • His wisdom, his people.
  • 00:11:49.210 --> 00:11:50.220
  • We're going to know about counsel.
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:51.250
  • His ways, his peace.
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:54.000
  • I got three more.
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:58.030
  • I love to do this.
  • 00:11:58.060 --> 00:11:59.150
  • All right, here are three more.
  • 00:11:59.180 --> 00:12:00.170
  • His character, his counsel, or his calm.
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:04.150
  • So here's point number one: does it line up with the Bible?
  • 00:12:04.180 --> 00:12:07.040
  • Does it line up with God's word, his principles,
  • 00:12:07.070 --> 00:12:13.120
  • and his character?
  • 00:12:13.150 --> 00:12:14.270
  • Does it line up with the Bible?
  • 00:12:15.000 --> 00:12:17.170
  • Hear this.
  • 00:12:17.200 --> 00:12:18.230
  • God's voice will never disagree with God's word.
  • 00:12:18.260 --> 00:12:24.010
  • God's voice will never disagree with God's word.
  • 00:12:24.040 --> 00:12:27.140
  • Matthew 19:3-4.
  • 00:12:27.170 --> 00:12:30.070
  • "Then the Pharisees also came to him, testing him,
  • 00:12:30.100 --> 00:12:34.000
  • and saying to him, 'Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife
  • 00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:38.010
  • for just any reason?' "
  • 00:12:38.040 --> 00:12:41.010
  • Now, you need to know something.
  • 00:12:41.040 --> 00:12:42.030
  • The word just was added by the translators.
  • 00:12:42.060 --> 00:12:44.120
  • It's not in the Greek.
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:46.220
  • So what they said was, "Is it lawful for a man
  • 00:12:46.250 --> 00:12:49.050
  • to divorce his wife for any reason?"
  • 00:12:49.080 --> 00:12:53.020
  • Any reason.
  • 00:12:53.050 --> 00:12:54.080
  • Watch his answer.
  • 00:12:54.110 --> 00:12:56.020
  • "And he answered and said to them, 'Have you not read,'"
  • 00:12:56.050 --> 00:13:01.230
  • -- okay.
  • 00:13:01.260 --> 00:13:02.160
  • Now, he goes on.
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:03.200
  • They said, "Yeah, but Moses said because the --
  • 00:13:03.230 --> 00:13:04.250
  • you know, he permitted the divorce."
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:06.100
  • Jesus said, "Yes, because of the hardness of your heart."
  • 00:13:06.130 --> 00:13:08.250
  • But here's the point.
  • 00:13:08.280 --> 00:13:10.100
  • They said, "We'd like a word from God."
  • 00:13:10.130 --> 00:13:14.030
  • He said, "Why don't you read the Bible?
  • 00:13:14.060 --> 00:13:16.260
  • You want a word from God, on marriage and divorce?
  • 00:13:16.290 --> 00:13:20.050
  • Read the Bible."
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:21.160
  • "Have you not read," -- God's word speaks.
  • 00:13:21.190 --> 00:13:26.070
  • Don't ever tell me you have a word from God,
  • 00:13:26.100 --> 00:13:29.070
  • and the Bible doesn't agree with it.
  • 00:13:29.100 --> 00:13:31.040
  • And here's what people do.
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:32.050
  • They'll take one scripture out of context,
  • 00:13:32.080 --> 00:13:35.020
  • and they'll try to prove it.
  • 00:13:35.050 --> 00:13:38.090
  • They'll say, "Yeah, but I got a scripture on it."
  • 00:13:38.120 --> 00:13:39.280
  • Okay.
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:40.270
  • We're not talking about one scripture.
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:41.280
  • Now, the Bible will never contradict itself,
  • 00:13:42.010 --> 00:13:43.250
  • but your interpretation of the Bible
  • 00:13:43.280 --> 00:13:45.270
  • might contradict the whole word.
  • 00:13:46.000 --> 00:13:47.180
  • So we're talking about the whole word.
  • 00:13:47.210 --> 00:13:49.230
  • Does the whole word agree with it?
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:51.210
  • You can -- and I've told you this before, just kind of
  • 00:13:51.240 --> 00:13:53.270
  • some funny stuff.
  • 00:13:54.000 --> 00:13:54.290
  • You can take one scripture out of context,
  • 00:13:55.020 --> 00:13:56.210
  • and prove just about anything you want to.
  • 00:13:56.240 --> 00:13:59.010
  • For instance, you can prove, by the Bible,
  • 00:13:59.040 --> 00:14:02.050
  • that David had a motorcycle.
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:07.240
  • It says David's triumph was heard throughout the land.
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:14.180
  • You can prove that Moses played tennis.
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:18.220
  • It says Moses refused to serve in the courts of Pharaoh.
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:23.170
  • All right, so, does it agree with the Bible?
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:26.100
  • Does it line up with the Bible?
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:27.090
  • Number two: does Godly counsel agree?
  • 00:14:27.120 --> 00:14:32.110
  • Does Godly counsel agree?
  • 00:14:32.140 --> 00:14:35.000
  • Not goodly counsel.
  • 00:14:35.030 --> 00:14:38.220
  • Here's what people do.
  • 00:14:38.250 --> 00:14:40.220
  • They'll go to someone, say, "What do you think?"
  • 00:14:40.250 --> 00:14:42.030
  • They say, "I don't think that's God."
  • 00:14:42.060 --> 00:14:43.040
  • They go to someone else. "What do you think?"
  • 00:14:43.070 --> 00:14:44.190
  • "I don't think that's God," They go to someone else.
  • 00:14:44.220 --> 00:14:46.040
  • "What do you think?"
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:46.220
  • "I think that's good."
  • 00:14:46.250 --> 00:14:47.160
  • "I agree with you."
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:48.150
  • That's not Godly counsel.
  • 00:14:48.180 --> 00:14:49.170
  • Let me tell you what godly counsel is.
  • 00:14:49.200 --> 00:14:51.000
  • The simplest definition.
  • 00:14:51.030 --> 00:14:53.140
  • It's people who really know God, know his word, and know you.
  • 00:14:53.170 --> 00:14:57.230
  • And they can say, "I think you're going a little fast."
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:15:01.260
  • So don't just go to anybody.
  • 00:15:01.290 --> 00:15:05.120
  • Go to a Godly, mature believer.
  • 00:15:05.150 --> 00:15:07.240
  • Let me give you a few scriptures on counsel.
  • 00:15:07.270 --> 00:15:09.150
  • Proverbs 12:15.
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:11.110
  • "The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
  • 00:15:11.140 --> 00:15:16.020
  • but he who heeds counsel is wise."
  • 00:15:16.050 --> 00:15:19.210
  • Proverbs 19:20-21.
  • 00:15:19.240 --> 00:15:21.290
  • "Listen to counsel and receive instruction,
  • 00:15:22.020 --> 00:15:26.280
  • that you may be wise in your latter days.
  • 00:15:27.010 --> 00:15:30.190
  • There are many plans in a man's heart, nevertheless
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:35.030
  • the Lord's counsel," -- not just good counsel,
  • 00:15:35.060 --> 00:15:38.180
  • God's counsel: "The Lord's counsel -- that will stand."
  • 00:15:38.210 --> 00:15:42.280
  • Proverbs 24:6.
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:44.060
  • "For by wise counsel you will wage your own war,
  • 00:15:44.090 --> 00:15:49.180
  • and in a multitude of counselors there is safety."
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:55.240
  • Is it wise counsel?
  • 00:15:55.270 --> 00:15:57.240
  • Here's a good question.
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:15:58.260
  • Is it stupid counsel?
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:01.020
  • Rehoboam takes over as king, says to his father's counselors,
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:07.120
  • "What should I do?"
  • 00:16:07.150 --> 00:16:09.030
  • They said -- this is amazing for any leadership position
  • 00:16:09.060 --> 00:16:12.200
  • you ever serve in.
  • 00:16:12.230 --> 00:16:13.260
  • They said to him, "If you will serve the people,
  • 00:16:13.290 --> 00:16:17.080
  • they will be your servants forever."
  • 00:16:17.110 --> 00:16:20.100
  • Great counsel.
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:21.170
  • If you'll be a servant, they'll serve the vision
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:23.250
  • God's given you.
  • 00:16:23.280 --> 00:16:25.000
  • But it says Rehoboam didn't listen to the counselors
  • 00:16:25.030 --> 00:16:28.080
  • of his father.
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:29.120
  • Instead, he went to his friends.
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:33.080
  • His friends said, "You tell them if you think
  • 00:16:33.110 --> 00:16:35.250
  • my father's hand was heavy, my little finger
  • 00:16:35.280 --> 00:16:39.020
  • is heavier than his whole hand."
  • 00:16:39.050 --> 00:16:41.130
  • Get this.
  • 00:16:41.160 --> 00:16:43.110
  • Have you ever heard of the Northern Kingdom
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:45.210
  • and the Southern Kingdom?
  • 00:16:45.240 --> 00:16:47.110
  • That happened because of Rehoboam.
  • 00:16:47.140 --> 00:16:50.180
  • It divided the church.
  • 00:16:50.210 --> 00:16:54.260
  • It split God's people.
  • 00:16:54.290 --> 00:16:57.090
  • Please, get Godly counsel.
  • 00:16:57.120 --> 00:17:00.020
  • So does it line up with the Bible, does Godly counsel agree?
  • 00:17:00.050 --> 00:17:04.000
  • Here's number three: do I have peace?
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:08.030
  • Do I have peace?
  • 00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:08.280
  • You can't imagine how big this is.
  • 00:17:09.010 --> 00:17:10.250
  • How God created you with this gauge inside of you.
  • 00:17:10.280 --> 00:17:16.150
  • Whether you have peace or not.
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:18.230
  • Colossians 3:15 says: "And the peace of God --
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:22.210
  • let the peace of God rule in your hearts," --
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:25.120
  • now, you know the New Testament was written in Greek.
  • 00:17:25.150 --> 00:17:28.090
  • Some of the words that Paul uses are from sporting events.
  • 00:17:28.120 --> 00:17:33.060
  • This is one of 'em.
  • 00:17:33.090 --> 00:17:34.130
  • This word actually means umpire.
  • 00:17:34.160 --> 00:17:37.130
  • It's from a sporting event, and it's the umpire.
  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:41.010
  • "Let the peace of God umpire in your heart."
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:44.280
  • Let God's peace tell you whether this is safe for you,
  • 00:17:45.010 --> 00:17:49.130
  • or whether you should get out of this situation.
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:53.160
  • Now, I want you to think about this.
  • 00:17:53.190 --> 00:17:54.230
  • How many times have you not had peace?
  • 00:17:54.260 --> 00:17:58.030
  • And many times, we do it anyway.
  • 00:17:58.060 --> 00:18:00.240
  • God never leads through fear.
  • 00:18:00.270 --> 00:18:04.200
  • He always leads through faith.
  • 00:18:04.230 --> 00:18:07.100
  • Always.
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:08.040
  • If you don't have peace, get out.
  • 00:18:08.070 --> 00:18:09.140
  • Philippians 4:7.
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:11.060
  • "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding," --
  • 00:18:11.090 --> 00:18:15.000
  • this word for understanding is the word reasoning.
  • 00:18:15.030 --> 00:18:18.110
  • Logic.
  • 00:18:18.140 --> 00:18:20.100
  • Passes all of your logical reasonings.
  • 00:18:20.130 --> 00:18:24.020
  • The peace of God: "Will guard your hearts and minds
  • 00:18:24.050 --> 00:18:29.120
  • through Christ Jesus."
  • 00:18:29.150 --> 00:18:31.000
  • The word guard here from the Greek
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:32.000
  • is a military term.
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:33.060
  • Not a sporting term, it's a military term,
  • 00:18:33.090 --> 00:18:34.160
  • and it means a garrison of soldiers.
  • 00:18:34.190 --> 00:18:38.060
  • A garrison of soldiers.
  • 00:18:38.090 --> 00:18:41.060
  • A garrison of God's angels will guard your heart
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:46.250
  • and your mind if you walk in peace.
  • 00:18:46.280 --> 00:18:51.190
  • That was good.
  • 00:18:51.220 --> 00:18:52.230
  • There wasn't one amen.
  • 00:18:52.260 --> 00:18:54.060
  • Now, I'm just going to -- just -- no, it's too late.
  • 00:18:54.090 --> 00:18:56.190
  • Too late.
  • 00:18:56.220 --> 00:18:57.160
  • No, you're not going to -- all right.
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:18:59.030
  • Isn't that good, though?
  • 00:18:59.060 --> 00:19:01.160
  • How many times has your mind been troubled,
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:03.080
  • and you hadn't been able to go to sleep?
  • 00:19:03.110 --> 00:19:05.050
  • It's 'cause you're going somewhere,
  • 00:19:05.080 --> 00:19:06.100
  • and you don't have peace.
  • 00:19:06.130 --> 00:19:07.230
  • If you just simply say, "God, I'll stop."
  • 00:19:07.260 --> 00:19:11.000
  • The peace comes back, just like that.
  • 00:19:11.030 --> 00:19:12.280
  • I'm not going to move.
  • 00:19:13.010 --> 00:19:14.050
  • If you don't -- if I don't have peace, I'm not moving.
  • 00:19:14.080 --> 00:19:16.230
  • This is what God does.
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:19.140
  • God will give you a word, and he'll confirm that word.
  • 00:19:19.170 --> 00:19:23.230
  • It will line up with his word.
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:25.130
  • It -- Godly counsel will agree, and you will have peace.
  • 00:19:25.160 --> 00:19:29.190
  • Let me tell you about a time.
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:31.240
  • A friend of mine and I went into former Yugoslavia
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:34.270
  • during the civil war.
  • 00:19:35.000 --> 00:19:36.220
  • We actually were preaching about 30 miles
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:38.150
  • from the civil war.
  • 00:19:38.180 --> 00:19:39.190
  • We could hear bombs, and guns going off.
  • 00:19:39.220 --> 00:19:42.120
  • And when we got up to the border,
  • 00:19:42.150 --> 00:19:44.210
  • there was this big, long line.
  • 00:19:44.240 --> 00:19:46.030
  • And he had a Red Cross badge.
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:50.100
  • And so, when they saw that, we -- they said,
  • 00:19:50.130 --> 00:19:53.250
  • "Oh, you come this way."
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:54.260
  • So we go right around everybody, show 'em
  • 00:19:54.290 --> 00:19:56.170
  • the Red Cross badge.
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:57.230
  • Boom.
  • 00:19:57.260 --> 00:19:58.200
  • They just let us in, just like that.
  • 00:19:58.230 --> 00:20:00.090
  • So we got in, and then he went one way to preach
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:03.260
  • in a church.
  • 00:20:03.290 --> 00:20:04.250
  • I went another way to preach in a church.
  • 00:20:04.280 --> 00:20:06.120
  • We're going down the road, and I'm sitting in
  • 00:20:06.150 --> 00:20:08.090
  • the passenger's seat.
  • 00:20:08.120 --> 00:20:09.100
  • There's four of us.
  • 00:20:09.130 --> 00:20:10.170
  • Three Yugoslavians and me.
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:12.130
  • And I'm sitting there, and we come up to a checkpoint.
  • 00:20:12.160 --> 00:20:15.150
  • There's a guard on our side of the road, and a guard
  • 00:20:15.180 --> 00:20:17.090
  • on the other side of the road.
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:19.050
  • He stops us.
  • 00:20:19.080 --> 00:20:20.060
  • He says to the driver, in Slavic, "Papers."
  • 00:20:20.090 --> 00:20:23.020
  • And the driver pulls his papers out.
  • 00:20:23.050 --> 00:20:24.170
  • Then, instead of coming to me, he goes to the guy
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:26.120
  • in the backseat.
  • 00:20:26.150 --> 00:20:27.140
  • He says, "Papers."
  • 00:20:27.170 --> 00:20:28.160
  • He pulls his papers out.
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:29.180
  • Then, the other guy in the backseat.
  • 00:20:29.210 --> 00:20:30.180
  • "Papers."
  • 00:20:30.210 --> 00:20:31.080
  • Pulls his papers out.
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:32.020
  • Says to me, "Papers."
  • 00:20:32.050 --> 00:20:34.280
  • Now, I didn't have any papers.
  • 00:20:35.010 --> 00:20:37.060
  • I didn't have a clue what he was talking about, you know?
  • 00:20:37.090 --> 00:20:38.240
  • And so, he says to me, again, in Slavic, but -- "Papers."
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:43.050
  • You know.
  • 00:20:43.080 --> 00:20:44.120
  • And I'm just sitting there.
  • 00:20:44.150 --> 00:20:45.290
  • I don't know what to do.
  • 00:20:46.020 --> 00:20:47.010
  • Now, while he's going around the three guys,
  • 00:20:47.040 --> 00:20:51.180
  • this pretty girl on a bicycle pulls up on the other side
  • 00:20:51.210 --> 00:20:55.110
  • of the road, and starts talking to the guard.
  • 00:20:55.140 --> 00:20:57.290
  • Our guard starts looking over.
  • 00:20:58.020 --> 00:21:02.110
  • He wants to be over there with the pretty girl.
  • 00:21:02.140 --> 00:21:04.190
  • God will use anything to get his word out.
  • 00:21:04.220 --> 00:21:11.240
  • So he's saying to me, "Papers."
  • 00:21:11.270 --> 00:21:13.050
  • He wants to get it over with, so he can go talk
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:14.280
  • to the pretty girl, you know?
  • 00:21:15.010 --> 00:21:16.290
  • And then, the driver from Yugoslavia says,
  • 00:21:17.020 --> 00:21:20.250
  • "He's from Dallas."
  • 00:21:20.280 --> 00:21:24.030
  • He didn't say Texas, and we're overseas,
  • 00:21:24.060 --> 00:21:26.270
  • in another country.
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:27.280
  • Most people would say, "USA."
  • 00:21:28.010 --> 00:21:30.050
  • They don't even say America, if you've ever traveled abroad.
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:32.210
  • They say, "USA."
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:33.260
  • Most would say USA.
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:35.120
  • Or Texas, even.
  • 00:21:35.150 --> 00:21:38.020
  • He said, "Dallas."
  • 00:21:38.050 --> 00:21:39.150
  • "He's from Dallas."
  • 00:21:39.180 --> 00:21:40.080
  • Here's what the guard did.
  • 00:21:40.110 --> 00:21:41.070
  • The guard went, "Oh, Dallas Cowboys."
  • 00:21:41.100 --> 00:21:49.220
  • I said, "Yes,
  • 00:21:49.250 --> 00:21:50.130
  • Dallas Cowboys."
  • 00:21:50.160 --> 00:21:51.270
  • He said, "Go on."
  • 00:21:52.000 --> 00:21:55.160
  • So we take off, and I'm just -- I'm kind of laughing,
  • 00:21:55.190 --> 00:21:58.240
  • I think it's funny.
  • 00:21:58.270 --> 00:21:59.240
  • These three guys aren't laughing.
  • 00:21:59.270 --> 00:22:01.120
  • I said, "What's going on?"
  • 00:22:01.150 --> 00:22:02.220
  • They said, "Well, we went to get your VISA last week,
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:05.000
  • and we couldn't get it.
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:07.150
  • And you don't have any papers."
  • 00:22:07.180 --> 00:22:10.070
  • And I said, "Well, what does that mean?"
  • 00:22:10.100 --> 00:22:12.210
  • They said, "Well last year, we had a passenger from America.
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:14.090
  • He didn't have papers, and they put him in jail
  • 00:22:14.120 --> 00:22:17.190
  • for six months."
  • 00:22:17.220 --> 00:22:20.060
  • Praise the Lord.
  • 00:22:20.090 --> 00:22:25.140
  • Well, as the day went on, that realization began
  • 00:22:25.170 --> 00:22:28.180
  • to minister to me.
  • 00:22:28.210 --> 00:22:33.110
  • And I got scared.
  • 00:22:33.140 --> 00:22:35.090
  • And that night, I couldn't sleep.
  • 00:22:35.120 --> 00:22:38.020
  • And I got up, and I walked outside.
  • 00:22:38.050 --> 00:22:40.200
  • And I said, "God, I got to have a word.
  • 00:22:40.230 --> 00:22:45.110
  • I got to have a word from you."
  • 00:22:45.140 --> 00:22:48.150
  • And I looked up, and I saw the Big Dipper.
  • 00:22:48.180 --> 00:22:54.010
  • And then God -- and God said to me,
  • 00:22:54.040 --> 00:22:56.080
  • "I hold those stars in place, and I'll take care of you."
  • 00:22:56.110 --> 00:23:01.230
  • PASTOR ROBERT: I was in a situation in that
  • 00:23:03.100 --> 00:23:04.260
  • foreign country where I needed a word from God.
  • 00:23:04.290 --> 00:23:08.230
  • And I'm wondering if you're in a situation right now,
  • 00:23:08.260 --> 00:23:13.210
  • and you need a word from God.
  • 00:23:13.240 --> 00:23:16.200
  • I want to encourage you to take some time
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:20.120
  • and enter his presence, and seek the Lord.
  • 00:23:20.150 --> 00:23:23.120
  • And then, just simply ask these three questions.
  • 00:23:23.150 --> 00:23:26.050
  • Does it line up with the Bible?
  • 00:23:26.080 --> 00:23:27.270
  • Would Godly counsel agree?
  • 00:23:28.000 --> 00:23:30.110
  • And do I have peace?
  • 00:23:30.140 --> 00:23:32.280
  • God is speaking.
  • 00:23:33.010 --> 00:23:36.060
  • Hey, thanks so much for watching.
  • 00:23:36.090 --> 00:23:37.280
  • I want to encourage you to tune in next week,
  • 00:23:38.010 --> 00:23:39.240
  • because we're going to continue this series, "Frequency:
