  • God by surprise.
  • 00:00:40.353 --> 00:00:41.754
  • It might have takensome of us by surprise.
  • 00:00:41.754 --> 00:00:45.091
  • In 2018,
  • 00:00:45.091 --> 00:00:46.793
  • pastor,
  • 00:00:46.793 --> 00:00:47.760
  • you seemed to get a heads up
  • 00:00:47.760 --> 00:00:50.630
  • from this by the lord.
  • 00:00:50.630 --> 00:00:52.298
  • Tell me, and tell our viewers,
  • 00:00:52.298 --> 00:00:54.267
  • more about what happenedback even in 2018.
  • 00:00:54.267 --> 00:00:57.470
  • - Yeah, ya know, August of 2018,
  • 00:00:57.470 --> 00:00:59.973
  • um
  • 00:00:59.973 --> 00:01:00.807
  • in a Sunday
  • 00:01:00.807 --> 00:01:01.774
  • uh
  • 00:01:01.774 --> 00:01:02.675
  • sermon
  • 00:01:02.675 --> 00:01:03.510
  • I was preaching away and
  • 00:01:03.510 --> 00:01:04.777
  • uh
  • 00:01:04.777 --> 00:01:06.012
  • I begin to see things inthe spirit in some sort
  • 00:01:06.012 --> 00:01:08.581
  • of what the lord wantsto do in the future.
  • 00:01:08.581 --> 00:01:11.184
  • He didn't start withwhat the enemy is doing,
  • 00:01:11.184 --> 00:01:13.753
  • he started with whatthe lord is doing and
  • 00:01:13.753 --> 00:01:16.289
  • the lord seemed to sayto me that he is going
  • 00:01:16.289 --> 00:01:18.191
  • to release
  • 00:01:18.191 --> 00:01:19.025
  • uh
  • 00:01:19.025 --> 00:01:19.859
  • a new strain,
  • 00:01:19.859 --> 00:01:20.960
  • he used the word strain,
  • 00:01:20.960 --> 00:01:22.595
  • of healing anointing
  • 00:01:22.595 --> 00:01:25.098
  • and that of which wehave never seen before.
  • 00:01:25.098 --> 00:01:28.001
  • The likes of which wehave never seen before and
  • 00:01:28.001 --> 00:01:30.403
  • it's going to result innot just supernatural,
  • 00:01:30.403 --> 00:01:33.173
  • but spectacular miraclesand healings of recluse,
  • 00:01:33.173 --> 00:01:36.042
  • but the devil will tryto catch up on that.
  • 00:01:36.042 --> 00:01:39.045
  • Now, whenever thedevil plays catch up,
  • 00:01:39.045 --> 00:01:40.880
  • God doesn't play catch up.
  • 00:01:40.880 --> 00:01:42.415
  • The devil plays catch up.
  • 00:01:42.415 --> 00:01:43.983
  • God initiates.
  • 00:01:43.983 --> 00:01:45.418
  • Like when the devil reactedto the birth of Jesus.
  • 00:01:45.418 --> 00:01:48.888
  • God has sent his son.
  • 00:01:48.888 --> 00:01:50.256
  • He was born on a silent night,
  • 00:01:50.256 --> 00:01:52.559
  • only some shepherds and afew folks knew about it,
  • 00:01:52.559 --> 00:01:55.728
  • but it was not visible,
  • 00:01:55.728 --> 00:01:57.230
  • it was not like a loud,
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:58.998
  • it was not like so palpable.
  • 00:01:58.998 --> 00:02:01.467
  • But when the devil hadthe children, the babies,
  • 00:02:01.467 --> 00:02:05.305
  • under two years old inBethlehem killed, it was loud.
  • 00:02:05.305 --> 00:02:09.542
  • You could hear sobbingand screaming and so...
  • 00:02:09.542 --> 00:02:13.246
  • The devil always plays catchup to what God is doing.
  • 00:02:13.246 --> 00:02:16.349
  • So even this virus, I believe.
  • 00:02:16.349 --> 00:02:18.151
  • And in 2018 I had propersight that a devil will try...
  • 00:02:18.151 --> 00:02:21.254
  • Uh, release a
  • 00:02:21.254 --> 00:02:22.622
  • Flu like virus,
  • 00:02:22.622 --> 00:02:26.025
  • an Ebola like,
  • 00:02:26.025 --> 00:02:27.594
  • Flu like virus
  • 00:02:27.594 --> 00:02:28.795
  • that is prevalent against
  • 00:02:28.795 --> 00:02:30.463
  • uh
  • 00:02:30.463 --> 00:02:31.297
  • medical
  • 00:02:31.297 --> 00:02:32.131
  • uh
  • 00:02:32.131 --> 00:02:32.966
  • science
  • 00:02:32.966 --> 00:02:33.800
  • and uh
  • 00:02:33.800 --> 00:02:34.634
  • it is going
  • 00:02:34.634 --> 00:02:36.102
  • to be a reaction, on the devilspart, to what God is doing.
  • 00:02:36.102 --> 00:02:39.539
  • So I rejoice becauseGod has done something.
  • 00:02:39.539 --> 00:02:42.475
  • You see, the world,
  • 00:02:42.475 --> 00:02:43.676
  • ya know, they goby what is visible,
  • 00:02:43.676 --> 00:02:45.378
  • but we talk by faithand not by sight.
  • 00:02:45.378 --> 00:02:48.214
  • We know that there is a healing
  • 00:02:48.214 --> 00:02:49.882
  • that has been released by God.
  • 00:02:49.882 --> 00:02:51.651
  • God must have donesomething great in the world
  • 00:02:51.651 --> 00:02:54.554
  • and the devil isso afraid of it.
  • 00:02:54.554 --> 00:02:56.556
  • So I don't believefor one moment
  • 00:02:56.556 --> 00:02:58.858
  • that this virus is from God.
  • 00:02:58.858 --> 00:03:01.561
  • - [Joseph] ObviouslyGod has done
  • 00:03:01.561 --> 00:03:03.296
  • something in the spirit world.
  • 00:03:03.296 --> 00:03:04.497
  • God has released ahealing, anointing,
  • 00:03:04.497 --> 00:03:06.633
  • uh, a new strain of healing.
  • 00:03:06.633 --> 00:03:10.570
  • He will preformsuch things that,
  • 00:03:10.570 --> 00:03:12.005
  • such feats that wehave never seen before.
  • 00:03:12.005 --> 00:03:14.774
  • The devil is afraid andhe is playing catch up.
  • 00:03:14.774 --> 00:03:16.776
  • He is trying to createa new strain of virus,
  • 00:03:16.776 --> 00:03:18.845
  • like Ebola and other kindsof strains of Flu that
  • 00:03:18.845 --> 00:03:23.182
  • is prevalent againstmedical medical treatment
  • 00:03:23.182 --> 00:03:26.152
  • and all that.
  • 00:03:26.152 --> 00:03:27.053
  • But, just let you know that we
  • 00:03:27.053 --> 00:03:28.288
  • are in the best of generations.
  • 00:03:28.288 --> 00:03:31.524
  • The rapture canhappen at any time.
  • 00:03:31.524 --> 00:03:33.393
  • We are in a generationthat believes that
  • 00:03:33.393 --> 00:03:35.094
  • we don't have to dependon the ways of the world.
  • 00:03:35.094 --> 00:03:38.231
  • We are that generationthat delights in God.
  • 00:03:38.231 --> 00:03:40.967
  • That is why you are here.
  • 00:03:40.967 --> 00:03:42.235
  • You are here because youdelight in God's work.
  • 00:03:42.235 --> 00:03:43.970
  • - Now, ah, Joseph, I thinkwe were talking before the
  • 00:03:43.970 --> 00:03:48.207
  • program started that youguys there in Singapore
  • 00:03:48.207 --> 00:03:51.444
  • are a bit ahead ofus here in America,
  • 00:03:51.444 --> 00:03:54.714
  • but it seems like daily,every time we wake up,
  • 00:03:54.714 --> 00:03:56.983
  • ya know, things are worsethan the night before
  • 00:03:56.983 --> 00:04:01.087
  • and by the end of the daythey are worse than the
  • 00:04:01.087 --> 00:04:02.855
  • morning we woke upand it just seems like
  • 00:04:02.855 --> 00:04:05.358
  • it has been getting worseand worse here in America
  • 00:04:05.358 --> 00:04:09.395
  • and um TBN has been
  • 00:04:09.395 --> 00:04:11.397
  • uh
  • 00:04:11.397 --> 00:04:12.598
  • making all kinds of spots for
  • 00:04:12.598 --> 00:04:14.901
  • hope and grace and peaceand joy in your homes.
  • 00:04:14.901 --> 00:04:18.604
  • Um, what are you giving yourpeople there in Singapore
  • 00:04:18.604 --> 00:04:23.343
  • with the hope and the graceand Jesus Chirst right now?
  • 00:04:23.343 --> 00:04:26.579
  • - Well we are preaching...
  • 00:04:26.579 --> 00:04:27.847
  • At the front ofthis year I always
  • 00:04:27.847 --> 00:04:29.649
  • thank the lord for his...
  • 00:04:29.649 --> 00:04:31.884
  • Uh
  • 00:04:31.884 --> 00:04:33.152
  • We believe that Godalways has a theme,
  • 00:04:33.152 --> 00:04:35.121
  • an emphasis that he isdoing for a given year.
  • 00:04:35.121 --> 00:04:38.358
  • So this year whenI saw the lord,
  • 00:04:38.358 --> 00:04:40.126
  • at the beginning of the year,
  • 00:04:40.126 --> 00:04:41.561
  • before the virus brokeout in Singapore,
  • 00:04:41.561 --> 00:04:46.099
  • from China, but before thathappened in the beginning
  • 00:04:46.099 --> 00:04:49.502
  • of the year the lord gaveme this message of...
  • 00:04:49.502 --> 00:04:51.804
  • He is the lord oftime and space.
  • 00:04:51.804 --> 00:04:53.840
  • It's going to be theyear of time and space.
  • 00:04:53.840 --> 00:04:56.042
  • - So when he first gave me thatword, I felt like, you know
  • 00:04:57.443 --> 00:04:59.612
  • Lord is not very spiritualword you know, i felt like it's
  • 00:04:59.612 --> 00:05:03.983
  • more scientific, youknow time and space,
  • 00:05:03.983 --> 00:05:05.985
  • that he's the Lordof time in space.
  • 00:05:05.985 --> 00:05:08.454
  • But now we can see that howthe devil is restricting time
  • 00:05:08.454 --> 00:05:12.558
  • and limiting space, you know,he's he's holding back time
  • 00:05:14.026 --> 00:05:18.464
  • and he's, it's like time isgoing so slow for so many of us
  • 00:05:19.832 --> 00:05:23.336
  • all over the world andspace is restricted.
  • 00:05:23.336 --> 00:05:26.806
  • With all this quarantineand stay at home and
  • 00:05:26.806 --> 00:05:29.976
  • social distancing,space is limited.
  • 00:05:29.976 --> 00:05:32.779
  • But early this year theLord said to me he's the
  • 00:05:32.779 --> 00:05:34.714
  • Lord of time andspace and space.
  • 00:05:34.714 --> 00:05:36.249
  • In the first two miracles ofJesus, the very first miracle
  • 00:05:36.249 --> 00:05:39.419
  • when he turned the water intowine, is a demonstration of
  • 00:05:39.419 --> 00:05:43.923
  • him being the Lord time, rightbecause it takes about three
  • 00:05:43.923 --> 00:05:47.760
  • to four years to get grapes,and then maybe two to three
  • 00:05:47.760 --> 00:05:51.831
  • more years to get good wineout of those grapes, but then
  • 00:05:51.831 --> 00:05:56.169
  • add another 20 years and even30 years you're gonna get
  • 00:05:56.169 --> 00:05:58.604
  • excellent wine,good quality wine.
  • 00:05:58.604 --> 00:06:01.774
  • So what the Lorddid in that wedding
  • 00:06:01.774 --> 00:06:04.043
  • he compressed time,demonstrating he'sthe Lord of time.
  • 00:06:04.043 --> 00:06:07.880
  • Now the second miracle he didin john chapter four again in
  • 00:06:07.880 --> 00:06:11.651
  • the same city ofsame town of Cana.
  • 00:06:11.651 --> 00:06:14.654
  • He spoke the word and nobleman's son in Capernaum about
  • 00:06:16.088 --> 00:06:20.526
  • 25 miles away fromCana was healed.
  • 00:06:21.694 --> 00:06:24.564
  • Now he's demonstratinghe's the lord of space.
  • 00:06:24.564 --> 00:06:28.601
  • So in the first twomiracles of Jesus is
  • 00:06:28.601 --> 00:06:30.903
  • the Lord of time and space.
  • 00:06:30.903 --> 00:06:32.338
  • So I'm believing the Lord,that he will accelerate time,
  • 00:06:32.338 --> 00:06:35.374
  • he can compress time,accelerate time, multiply time,
  • 00:06:35.374 --> 00:06:39.612
  • reverse time, and he'sgonna enlarge space for us.
  • 00:06:39.612 --> 00:06:43.182
  • So in our in our homes, in ourfamilies, in our churches, we
  • 00:06:43.182 --> 00:06:47.019
  • are believing God in thename of Jesus that he's gonna
  • 00:06:47.019 --> 00:06:50.289
  • demonstrate himself as a lotof time and space, in spite of
  • 00:06:50.289 --> 00:06:53.693
  • all the experts saying it'sgonna end probably When vaccine
  • 00:06:53.693 --> 00:06:56.829
  • comes up probably in a year,a year and a half but I'm
  • 00:06:56.829 --> 00:06:58.998
  • believing God that he's goingto accelerate time for us.
  • 00:06:58.998 --> 00:07:01.567
  • - Beautiful- That's great.
  • 00:07:01.567 --> 00:07:03.436
  • - You know, you're talkingabout restricting time or time
  • 00:07:03.436 --> 00:07:07.340
  • and space and and herein America you know,
  • 00:07:07.340 --> 00:07:11.978
  • the idea of beingrestricted is new.
  • 00:07:11.978 --> 00:07:16.315
  • I mean, I don't know that myparents understood in their
  • 00:07:19.552 --> 00:07:24.557
  • generation anything like weare in the restriction of our
  • 00:07:26.025 --> 00:07:29.028
  • travel the restrictionof our movement.
  • 00:07:29.028 --> 00:07:31.831
  • It is literallyunprecedented in America,
  • 00:07:31.831 --> 00:07:36.836
  • what's happeningand and the world.
  • 00:07:38.004 --> 00:07:40.206
  • It's just in our lifetime,we haven't seen anything like
  • 00:07:40.206 --> 00:07:44.477
  • this and so first of all ijust want to say thank you for
  • 00:07:44.477 --> 00:07:47.914
  • joining us from from Singapore.Would have loved to have had
  • 00:07:47.914 --> 00:07:52.718
  • you here Joseph in Dallas,Texas with us and hug your neck
  • 00:07:52.718 --> 00:07:56.789
  • but we're not supposedto do that anymore.
  • 00:07:56.789 --> 00:07:58.958
  • - But we are supposed to bethere for Easter this year
  • 00:07:58.958 --> 00:08:01.427
  • - I'll make anexception with you Matt.
  • 00:08:01.427 --> 00:08:04.063
  • (laughter)
  • 00:08:04.063 --> 00:08:05.598
  • - Exactly, so ultimately,Psalm 91 Joseph
  • 00:08:05.598 --> 00:08:10.603
  • you have taught us moreabout that subject.
  • 00:08:11.704 --> 00:08:15.274
  • We've used your book as a giftoffer for our monthly gift
  • 00:08:15.274 --> 00:08:18.344
  • offer and I think weneed a nice, amazing,
  • 00:08:18.344 --> 00:08:23.349
  • good fresh dose of Psalm91. If you would so please
  • 00:08:24.817 --> 00:08:26.986
  • - you remember last yearwhen we were in Colorado
  • 00:08:26.986 --> 00:08:32.024
  • and we need a special feature.
  • 00:08:32.858 --> 00:08:35.928
  • You actually wanted me to
  • 00:08:35.928 --> 00:08:36.996
  • do something on protection.
  • 00:08:36.996 --> 00:08:39.498
  • You know, I think we bothfelt like there was something
  • 00:08:39.498 --> 00:08:41.734
  • brewing in the spiritright, and we did a
  • 00:08:41.734 --> 00:08:45.104
  • feature on divine protection.
  • 00:08:45.104 --> 00:08:47.773
  • So Psalm 91 begins withhe who dwells in the
  • 00:08:47.773 --> 00:08:51.844
  • secret place of themost high shall abide
  • 00:08:51.844 --> 00:08:54.480
  • under the shadowof the Almighty.
  • 00:08:54.480 --> 00:08:56.582
  • Now the word abide, he whodwells the word dwells,
  • 00:08:56.582 --> 00:09:00.319
  • yashab, in Hebrew isthe word Sit, sit down.
  • 00:09:00.319 --> 00:09:04.557
  • So protection does not beginwith us running around ragged
  • 00:09:04.557 --> 00:09:08.060
  • being afraid, trying to avoidplaces and avoiding people
  • 00:09:08.060 --> 00:09:13.065
  • that seem to be coughing andall that I'm not talking about
  • 00:09:14.500 --> 00:09:16.068
  • about being presumptuous andrunning smack dab into them.
  • 00:09:16.068 --> 00:09:18.304
  • I'm talking about having faithand wisdom, but psalms 91 is
  • 00:09:18.304 --> 00:09:21.841
  • telling us first of allyou got to sit down, rest.
  • 00:09:21.841 --> 00:09:25.478
  • Right, and every morning,learn to go come to God and
  • 00:09:26.912 --> 00:09:30.983
  • just relaxing andassess your situation.
  • 00:09:32.084 --> 00:09:35.121
  • Ask yourself, Am I in faithbefore I go out there and before
  • 00:09:35.121 --> 00:09:38.691
  • I face the world, am I in aplace of restfulness, because
  • 00:09:38.691 --> 00:09:43.029
  • the Bible says he who dwellshe who sits in the secret place
  • 00:09:43.029 --> 00:09:45.965
  • of the most highshall abide under
  • 00:09:45.965 --> 00:09:47.733
  • the protection under theshadow of the Almighty
  • 00:09:47.733 --> 00:09:50.269
  • - So I encourage here,
  • 00:09:51.303 --> 00:09:52.438
  • everyone that'swatching this right now
  • 00:09:52.438 --> 00:09:54.273
  • to every single morning pray
  • 00:09:54.273 --> 00:09:55.975
  • and bring your family and you
  • 00:09:55.975 --> 00:09:57.443
  • and say thank you fatherthat we are in Christ risen
  • 00:09:57.443 --> 00:10:00.579
  • at your right handseated with Christ.
  • 00:10:00.579 --> 00:10:04.316
  • Far above the Covid-19 virus.
  • 00:10:04.316 --> 00:10:07.386
  • Psalms:91 is not something likeyou know something magical.
  • 00:10:07.386 --> 00:10:11.123
  • You just use legalisticallyand expect to see a few things
  • 00:10:11.123 --> 00:10:14.927
  • and then you knowprotection happens.
  • 00:10:14.927 --> 00:10:17.063
  • It must be coming toGod and saying Lord
  • 00:10:17.063 --> 00:10:20.232
  • I sit in the secret place.
  • 00:10:20.232 --> 00:10:21.801
  • The place you have for me.
  • 00:10:21.801 --> 00:10:23.636
  • And there'll be some peoplewho tell you that Psalms:91
  • 00:10:23.636 --> 00:10:26.872
  • that secret place is a specialplace for the favorite few.
  • 00:10:26.872 --> 00:10:31.143
  • Those who areespecially obedient
  • 00:10:31.143 --> 00:10:33.045
  • or those who are prayinglong hours or extra holy.
  • 00:10:33.045 --> 00:10:38.017
  • But it's nothing of that sort.
  • 00:10:38.918 --> 00:10:40.186
  • The Bible tells us itis not our fatefulness.
  • 00:10:40.186 --> 00:10:44.256
  • It is his fatefulnessthat keeps us from evil.
  • 00:10:44.256 --> 00:10:47.259
  • In fact there's a versein Psalms:91 that says
  • 00:10:47.259 --> 00:10:49.128
  • his truth shall be yourshield and barclay.
  • 00:10:49.128 --> 00:10:53.232
  • That what truth in theHebrew is the what it meant.
  • 00:10:53.232 --> 00:10:56.736
  • In some versions ofthe Bible it says
  • 00:10:56.736 --> 00:10:58.637
  • his faithfulnessshall be your shield.
  • 00:10:58.637 --> 00:11:01.474
  • And the Bible says thatin Second Thessalonian:33
  • 00:11:01.474 --> 00:11:04.543
  • the Lord is faithful whowill keep you from evil.
  • 00:11:04.543 --> 00:11:08.547
  • So notice it's theLord's faithfulness
  • 00:11:08.547 --> 00:11:11.183
  • not my faithfulnessthat keep me from evil.
  • 00:11:11.183 --> 00:11:14.520
  • So every morning I justrest in his faithfulness.
  • 00:11:14.520 --> 00:11:16.889
  • Lord I thank you.
  • 00:11:16.889 --> 00:11:18.124
  • You are faithful toprotect and preserve
  • 00:11:18.124 --> 00:11:20.426
  • and keep my family and Isafe from the Covid-19 virus.
  • 00:11:20.426 --> 00:11:25.431
  • It's a time forus to really walk
  • 00:11:26.599 --> 00:11:27.800
  • in what we believedall these years.
  • 00:11:27.800 --> 00:11:31.337
  • Amen.
  • 00:11:31.337 --> 00:11:32.204
  • - Amen.
  • 00:11:32.204 --> 00:11:33.139
  • Amen.
  • 00:11:33.139 --> 00:11:34.707
  • So believers that feel thatthey're in that secret place
  • 00:11:34.707 --> 00:11:38.110
  • and I think being inour homes right now
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:40.546
  • and huddled with our family.
  • 00:11:40.546 --> 00:11:42.715
  • I think we can all kindof get a sense of that.
  • 00:11:42.715 --> 00:11:46.352
  • So all of those promises.
  • 00:11:46.352 --> 00:11:48.788
  • I want you to makesure everybody knows
  • 00:11:48.788 --> 00:11:50.422
  • that those prom- all thepromises are there for them.
  • 00:11:50.422 --> 00:11:53.292
  • - Yes.
  • 00:11:53.292 --> 00:11:54.126
  • - As believers.
  • 00:11:54.126 --> 00:11:54.960
  • - Definitely.
  • 00:11:54.960 --> 00:11:55.895
  • And the worst thing we can do
  • 00:11:55.895 --> 00:11:57.463
  • is point to themselves and say
  • 00:11:57.463 --> 00:11:58.898
  • are you obedient enough?
  • 00:11:58.898 --> 00:12:00.766
  • To qualify for the secret place.
  • 00:12:00.766 --> 00:12:02.835
  • No no the dream of the Psalms is
  • 00:12:02.835 --> 00:12:05.070
  • in the old testamentwhen he says
  • 00:12:05.070 --> 00:12:06.472
  • he who dwells inthe secret place
  • 00:12:06.472 --> 00:12:08.641
  • is the place of the Messiah
  • 00:12:08.641 --> 00:12:10.176
  • because the Messiah in theOld Testament was hidden.
  • 00:12:10.176 --> 00:12:12.611
  • But that dream of thatPsalms is now a reality.
  • 00:12:13.746 --> 00:12:18.584
  • We are now seated withChrist in Heavenly places
  • 00:12:18.584 --> 00:12:22.288
  • at the father's right hand.
  • 00:12:22.288 --> 00:12:24.089
  • So we are so close to Godunder a shadow of the almighty.
  • 00:12:24.089 --> 00:12:26.859
  • It's not a place thatyou are trying to get to.
  • 00:12:26.859 --> 00:12:29.028
  • You are there already.
  • 00:12:29.028 --> 00:12:30.596
  • Learn to rest in it everymorning and make it practical.
  • 00:12:30.596 --> 00:12:33.399
  • Say father I thank you as Igo out and face the world.
  • 00:12:33.399 --> 00:12:36.302
  • My family and I, weare safe and secure.
  • 00:12:36.302 --> 00:12:39.038
  • And start feeling it.
  • 00:12:39.038 --> 00:12:40.439
  • Start to enjoy his loveand his safe keeping.
  • 00:12:40.439 --> 00:12:43.676
  • - Are the promises automaticfor everybody Joseph?
  • 00:12:43.676 --> 00:12:47.146
  • - Again like I say,
  • 00:12:47.146 --> 00:12:48.581
  • you know it's not somethingthat you push a button
  • 00:12:48.581 --> 00:12:51.250
  • or you say this and it happens.
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:52.985
  • I think you need to goto the Lord every day
  • 00:12:52.985 --> 00:12:54.553
  • and say Lord I thank you
  • 00:12:54.553 --> 00:12:56.021
  • that you have placed myfamily and I safe and secure
  • 00:12:56.021 --> 00:13:00.092
  • in Christ risen atyour right hand.
  • 00:13:00.092 --> 00:13:02.561
  • I thank you that we are farabove the Covid-19 virus.
  • 00:13:02.561 --> 00:13:06.131
  • Far above every principalityand every name that is named
  • 00:13:06.131 --> 00:13:09.602
  • not only in this world, butalso in that which is to come.
  • 00:13:09.602 --> 00:13:12.037
  • It's time for usto take our place.
  • 00:13:12.037 --> 00:13:14.173
  • And we thank God thateven when darkness covered
  • 00:13:14.173 --> 00:13:17.943
  • the entire land of Egypt,
  • 00:13:17.943 --> 00:13:20.145
  • the Bible says in Exodus 10.
  • 00:13:20.145 --> 00:13:23.682
  • Exodus 10.
  • 00:13:23.682 --> 00:13:25.150
  • It says that the childrenof Israel had light
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:27.720
  • in all their dwellings.
  • 00:13:27.720 --> 00:13:30.556
  • Now imagine thatdarkness covered Egypt
  • 00:13:30.556 --> 00:13:32.691
  • but the children of Israel hadlight in all their dwellings.
  • 00:13:32.691 --> 00:13:34.894
  • Obviously a supernatural light.
  • 00:13:34.894 --> 00:13:36.862
  • Because it is a natural light
  • 00:13:36.862 --> 00:13:39.064
  • then the Egyptians revealthemselves of the same means.
  • 00:13:39.064 --> 00:13:43.068
  • But obviously theycould not light.
  • 00:13:43.068 --> 00:13:44.570
  • Even their matches did not work.
  • 00:13:44.570 --> 00:13:46.538
  • So it was a supernaturallight in the dwellings
  • 00:13:46.538 --> 00:13:49.041
  • of the children of Israel.
  • 00:13:49.041 --> 00:13:50.442
  • I think that what ishappening in this world today
  • 00:13:50.442 --> 00:13:51.944
  • is that God is notbehind the virus,
  • 00:13:51.944 --> 00:13:54.513
  • but is demonstratingduring this time
  • 00:13:54.513 --> 00:13:56.982
  • what he would do for his people.
  • 00:13:56.982 --> 00:13:59.184
  • - So Joseph, todayis Monday March 23rd
  • 00:13:59.184 --> 00:14:04.189
  • And things are so rapidlychanging all over the world.
  • 00:14:05.624 --> 00:14:09.895
  • You know, travels restricted,gatherings are restricted.
  • 00:14:09.895 --> 00:14:14.900
  • There's a you know,
  • 00:14:15.634 --> 00:14:16.902
  • things are shutdown, restaurants.
  • 00:14:16.902 --> 00:14:19.204
  • Everything that we knew of life
  • 00:14:19.204 --> 00:14:22.374
  • is somewhat changed completely.
  • 00:14:22.374 --> 00:14:25.945
  • And thank you forjoining us today.
  • 00:14:25.945 --> 00:14:29.415
  • As things kind of, evenevolved over the weekend.
  • 00:14:29.415 --> 00:14:34.420
  • And so I want you to bepractical for a second.
  • 00:14:35.621 --> 00:14:39.591
  • I don't normally wantyou to be practical,
  • 00:14:39.591 --> 00:14:42.294
  • but in one sense, I wantyou to be practical and...
  • 00:14:42.294 --> 00:14:46.298
  • - And help me define withour audience and what,
  • 00:14:47.733 --> 00:14:51.403
  • Joseph, would you sayabout being able to walk
  • 00:14:51.403 --> 00:14:56.208
  • in faith, but being alsopractical at the same time just,
  • 00:14:56.208 --> 00:15:00.646
  • kinda your thoughts on that.
  • 00:15:00.646 --> 00:15:02.815
  • - I think we have toapply faith and wisdom
  • 00:15:02.815 --> 00:15:06.218
  • at the same time.
  • 00:15:06.218 --> 00:15:07.486
  • They are not antithesisto each other.
  • 00:15:07.486 --> 00:15:09.188
  • And I think that trustingGod for protection
  • 00:15:09.188 --> 00:15:12.691
  • and you know what, if youdo contract the virus,
  • 00:15:12.691 --> 00:15:15.627
  • just believe God for healing.
  • 00:15:15.627 --> 00:15:17.396
  • You will live and notdie in Jesus name.
  • 00:15:17.396 --> 00:15:19.965
  • You know, God's best, Ibelieve, for his people now is
  • 00:15:19.965 --> 00:15:23.302
  • to believe him, tostart walking in faith,
  • 00:15:23.302 --> 00:15:26.839
  • to walk, you know, in away that can demonstrate
  • 00:15:26.839 --> 00:15:30.476
  • to the world that we areprotected but, that doesn't mean
  • 00:15:30.476 --> 00:15:32.978
  • that we throw caution to thewind, and just go out there
  • 00:15:32.978 --> 00:15:36.648
  • and you know, spendtime with people that
  • 00:15:36.648 --> 00:15:39.051
  • are proven positiveand demonstrate
  • 00:15:41.320 --> 00:15:44.289
  • that I have faith in God.
  • 00:15:44.289 --> 00:15:45.724
  • We have to honor thegovernments that God has put
  • 00:15:45.724 --> 00:15:49.228
  • in the land, the bibletells us to do so.
  • 00:15:49.228 --> 00:15:51.497
  • And if it tell us toobserve social distancing
  • 00:15:51.497 --> 00:15:54.900
  • and all that, weknow it's temporal.
  • 00:15:54.900 --> 00:15:56.402
  • be just for the moment.
  • 00:15:56.402 --> 00:15:57.736
  • I think again, we areseeing some places
  • 00:15:57.736 --> 00:16:01.373
  • where people are beingfoolhardy and presumptuous
  • 00:16:01.373 --> 00:16:04.309
  • and its not faith.
  • 00:16:04.309 --> 00:16:05.611
  • On the other hand, youknow there are people
  • 00:16:05.611 --> 00:16:07.746
  • who are so afraid and they arekeeping themselves at home.
  • 00:16:07.746 --> 00:16:11.050
  • But you know what if you arein fear and you are at home,
  • 00:16:11.050 --> 00:16:13.152
  • bad things can happen, you know,
  • 00:16:13.152 --> 00:16:15.254
  • just being at homewithout faith.
  • 00:16:15.254 --> 00:16:17.289
  • So its not matter ofwhether you believe
  • 00:16:17.289 --> 00:16:20.192
  • God or you don'tbelieve God, its both.
  • 00:16:20.192 --> 00:16:22.461
  • Believe God andask him for wisdom.
  • 00:16:22.461 --> 00:16:25.230
  • Wash your hands regularly,you know many of us
  • 00:16:25.230 --> 00:16:27.766
  • we have this bad habitso, one thing good
  • 00:16:27.766 --> 00:16:29.501
  • that comes out of all thisis that we are washing
  • 00:16:29.501 --> 00:16:30.936
  • our hands moreoften and make sure
  • 00:16:30.936 --> 00:16:32.971
  • you wash your hands, Matt.
  • 00:16:32.971 --> 00:16:34.473
  • - That's going to help eventhe flu all these little
  • 00:16:34.473 --> 00:16:37.109
  • tiny things pass fromperson to person.
  • 00:16:37.109 --> 00:16:40.579
  • - So Pastor, I lovevisiting you in Singapore.
  • 00:16:40.579 --> 00:16:44.750
  • We will get to Singapore here,
  • 00:16:46.151 --> 00:16:48.887
  • Lord willing, assoon as possible
  • 00:16:49.855 --> 00:16:51.790
  • and we need to visit China.
  • 00:16:51.790 --> 00:16:54.693
  • We've got some projectsthat are going there
  • 00:16:54.693 --> 00:16:57.496
  • so we're actually in a hurryfor God to compress time,
  • 00:16:57.496 --> 00:17:02.301
  • like you were talking about.
  • 00:17:02.301 --> 00:17:03.769
  • But, give us a bit of aword picture for those of us
  • 00:17:03.769 --> 00:17:08.440
  • that don't know what lifeis like there in Singapore.
  • 00:17:08.440 --> 00:17:12.010
  • You've got one of the largest,most beautiful churches,
  • 00:17:12.010 --> 00:17:16.014
  • but you've had to,just last weekend,
  • 00:17:16.014 --> 00:17:20.919
  • suspend services.
  • 00:17:20.919 --> 00:17:22.688
  • We suspended servicestwo weekends ago
  • 00:17:22.688 --> 00:17:27.059
  • and so, just paint apicture for our viewers
  • 00:17:27.059 --> 00:17:30.429
  • of life for Singapore right now.
  • 00:17:30.429 --> 00:17:33.832
  • And then I think let'sjust end this in prayer
  • 00:17:33.832 --> 00:17:38.270
  • for our audience globallynot only in your area
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:42.608
  • but, anywhere inthe world for prayer
  • 00:17:42.608 --> 00:17:45.110
  • for this whole situation.
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:46.345
  • - Yeah, I want toencourage the viewers
  • 00:17:46.345 --> 00:17:48.847
  • that God will makeuse of this time
  • 00:17:50.015 --> 00:17:53.051
  • to reach out to as manypeople as possible,
  • 00:17:53.051 --> 00:17:56.121
  • and we know thatthis virus will pass,
  • 00:17:56.121 --> 00:17:57.723
  • so we have this window.
  • 00:17:57.723 --> 00:17:59.224
  • You know how people arelike when things are bad,
  • 00:17:59.224 --> 00:18:01.360
  • they start thinking about God.
  • 00:18:01.360 --> 00:18:03.695
  • They start thinkingabout their souls.
  • 00:18:03.695 --> 00:18:04.830
  • They think abouttheir eternal destiny.
  • 00:18:04.830 --> 00:18:07.166
  • So situation in Singapore hereis very much like in Florida.
  • 00:18:07.166 --> 00:18:11.403
  • It's sunny all year long
  • 00:18:11.403 --> 00:18:13.205
  • and it's a modern urban city.
  • 00:18:14.673 --> 00:18:18.277
  • But when these things came on us
  • 00:18:19.611 --> 00:18:21.213
  • and now we have topractice social distancing
  • 00:18:21.213 --> 00:18:23.515
  • and going online for ourservices and all that,
  • 00:18:23.515 --> 00:18:26.318
  • its very much what America ishappening as an urban nation.
  • 00:18:26.318 --> 00:18:30.122
  • But the amazing thing is thatGod is making use of this time
  • 00:18:32.090 --> 00:18:36.361
  • that even last week whenwe went for the first time
  • 00:18:36.361 --> 00:18:39.798
  • on online service,we found that we had
  • 00:18:39.798 --> 00:18:42.234
  • more people respondingto the online service
  • 00:18:42.234 --> 00:18:45.571
  • than we would have in agiven Sunday, physically.
  • 00:18:45.571 --> 00:18:48.507
  • So, this is amazing because wedo not know who is tuning in
  • 00:18:49.942 --> 00:18:53.145
  • and who is hearing thegospel right in their homes.
  • 00:18:53.145 --> 00:18:56.048
  • But I think that God is givingthis window to the church.
  • 00:18:56.048 --> 00:18:58.317
  • Don't be discouraged,because God is turning
  • 00:18:58.317 --> 00:19:00.886
  • the whole thing around forgood and for his glory,
  • 00:19:00.886 --> 00:19:03.222
  • and one day we willlook back and see wow,
  • 00:19:03.222 --> 00:19:05.090
  • God made use of thesituation to bring the gospel
  • 00:19:05.090 --> 00:19:08.093
  • right into thedoorstep of people
  • 00:19:08.093 --> 00:19:10.395
  • that would otherwisenot hear the gospel.
  • 00:19:10.395 --> 00:19:12.497
  • So I encourage ministersand all to be encouraged
  • 00:19:12.497 --> 00:19:15.234
  • during this time and all themore the ministry of TBM.
  • 00:19:15.234 --> 00:19:19.371
  • This the reason why God raisedTBM, so for times like this
  • 00:19:19.371 --> 00:19:23.308
  • you can receive the teaching,
  • 00:19:23.308 --> 00:19:24.610
  • you can receive the feeding,
  • 00:19:24.610 --> 00:19:26.011
  • you can receivethe encouragement,
  • 00:19:26.011 --> 00:19:27.512
  • you can receive the worshipanointing, right in your room.
  • 00:19:27.512 --> 00:19:31.650
  • You know, it's for thisreason God raised TBM.
  • 00:19:31.650 --> 00:19:34.152
  • - Yeah, I believe thatwith all my heart.
  • 00:19:35.787 --> 00:19:37.556
  • - Amen.
  • 00:19:37.556 --> 00:19:38.590
  • - It's time for the church
  • 00:19:38.590 --> 00:19:40.025
  • to shine. (laughs)- Amen.
  • 00:19:40.025 --> 00:19:40.859
  • Amen, amen, light in all
  • 00:19:40.859 --> 00:19:42.127
  • our dwellings.- Pastor, can you just pray.
  • 00:19:42.127 --> 00:19:44.096
  • - Yeah, absolutely.
  • 00:19:44.830 --> 00:19:46.064
  • Can you just prayfor the people?
  • 00:19:46.064 --> 00:19:48.166
  • And pray for, I hearit said all the time.
  • 00:19:48.166 --> 00:19:51.770
  • I had a lady come up thelast time we were in Israel,
  • 00:19:51.770 --> 00:19:55.340
  • and she said, "TBN has mademe feel like I have a home."
  • 00:19:55.340 --> 00:20:00.345
  • She said, "I feellike an adult orphan."
  • 00:20:01.480 --> 00:20:03.915
  • Because, I don'thave any family.
  • 00:20:06.918 --> 00:20:08.420
  • So I know a lot of peopleare by themselves right now.
  • 00:20:08.420 --> 00:20:11.890
  • I get letters, "It'sjust me and my dog here."
  • 00:20:11.890 --> 00:20:14.960
  • - Oh, that's precious.
  • 00:20:14.960 --> 00:20:16.428
  • - And just, I have justsuch a heart for the people
  • 00:20:16.428 --> 00:20:19.631
  • to know that weare there with you.
  • 00:20:19.631 --> 00:20:21.400
  • We are praying for you.
  • 00:20:21.400 --> 00:20:23.001
  • TBN is here.
  • 00:20:23.001 --> 00:20:24.169
  • We've got prayer partners.
  • 00:20:24.169 --> 00:20:25.671

  • You can text us your prayers.
  • 00:20:27.339 --> 00:20:29.941
  • But pastor, I just want youto pray like only you can do.
  • 00:20:29.941 --> 00:20:33.512
  • And just give people hope today.
  • 00:20:33.512 --> 00:20:36.148
  • - I just wanna say toeveryone that's watching
  • 00:20:36.148 --> 00:20:38.684
  • this right now, that Godis right there with you,
  • 00:20:38.684 --> 00:20:41.520
  • and he's not lostin all these things,
  • 00:20:41.520 --> 00:20:43.955
  • because we are moreconscious of what is visible,
  • 00:20:43.955 --> 00:20:46.692
  • but we are moreconscious of what we hear
  • 00:20:46.692 --> 00:20:49.861
  • and our five senses,but the Bible says,
  • 00:20:49.861 --> 00:20:51.596
  • "we walk by faithand not by sight."
  • 00:20:51.596 --> 00:20:53.165
  • See what God is doing.
  • 00:20:53.165 --> 00:20:54.232
  • He is there with you right now,
  • 00:20:54.232 --> 00:20:56.268
  • regardless of how youfeel the word is true.
  • 00:20:56.268 --> 00:20:58.904
  • God is with you rightnow he's loving on you.
  • 00:20:58.904 --> 00:21:01.973
  • He's loving you, you areprotected more than you know.
  • 00:21:01.973 --> 00:21:05.277
  • So rest in that love,
  • 00:21:05.277 --> 00:21:07.112
  • find that place of beingseated with Christ.
  • 00:21:07.112 --> 00:21:09.381
  • And every day pray this prayer
  • 00:21:09.381 --> 00:21:12.050
  • with all of us thatare praying this prayer
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:15.954
  • of Psalms 91 and know thatthis virus is not from God.
  • 00:21:15.954 --> 00:21:19.925
  • It's kinda hard to pray
  • 00:21:19.925 --> 00:21:21.426
  • against something that youthink God is initiating.
  • 00:21:21.426 --> 00:21:23.061
  • So you got to know that,
  • 00:21:23.061 --> 00:21:25.397
  • we are not in thedays of judgment.
  • 00:21:25.397 --> 00:21:26.998
  • We are still inthe days of grace,
  • 00:21:26.998 --> 00:21:29.434
  • but God may justlive up a finger
  • 00:21:29.434 --> 00:21:31.403
  • for a while to showthe to demonstrate
  • 00:21:31.403 --> 00:21:33.305
  • to the world what life is like
  • 00:21:33.305 --> 00:21:35.540
  • without his divine protection.
  • 00:21:35.540 --> 00:21:37.042
  • Thank God he didn'tlive up two fingers.
  • 00:21:37.042 --> 00:21:39.544
  • He imagined what's gonnahappen to the world
  • 00:21:39.544 --> 00:21:41.546
  • so we are more protectedthan we realize.
  • 00:21:41.546 --> 00:21:43.081
  • And sometimes We needtimes like these to realize
  • 00:21:43.081 --> 00:21:45.417
  • that our God hasbeen protecting us.
  • 00:21:45.417 --> 00:21:47.486
  • He makes the rain to fallon the just and the unjust.
  • 00:21:47.486 --> 00:21:50.455
  • And the sun to shine onthe evil and the good.
  • 00:21:50.455 --> 00:21:53.458
  • So let's pray thisprayer right now,
  • 00:21:53.458 --> 00:21:55.293
  • and I want to encourage you topray in this manner every day
  • 00:21:55.293 --> 00:21:58.730
  • before you leave the house.
  • 00:21:58.730 --> 00:22:00.399
  • Right, say Father in Jesus name,
  • 00:22:00.399 --> 00:22:02.501
  • I thank you, and I thankyou for every viewer
  • 00:22:02.501 --> 00:22:05.871
  • that's watching thisright now father,
  • 00:22:05.871 --> 00:22:07.472
  • pray this prayer everydaysay father in Jesus name
  • 00:22:07.472 --> 00:22:09.775
  • I thank you thatmy family and I,
  • 00:22:09.775 --> 00:22:11.176
  • we are seated with Christin heavenly places.
  • 00:22:11.176 --> 00:22:15.313
  • We are safe and secure underthe shadow of the Almighty.
  • 00:22:15.313 --> 00:22:19.918
  • Thank you, father thatyou said in your word.
  • 00:22:19.918 --> 00:22:22.154
  • Surely, not maybe not perhapsbut surely you will deliver
  • 00:22:22.154 --> 00:22:27.192
  • my family and I fromthe perilous pestilence.
  • 00:22:28.360 --> 00:22:33.131
  • You will cover uswith your feathers
  • 00:22:33.131 --> 00:22:35.167
  • because we areseated with Christ.
  • 00:22:35.167 --> 00:22:37.903
  • You are our dwelling place.
  • 00:22:37.903 --> 00:22:39.438
  • Thank you no evil will befall us
  • 00:22:39.438 --> 00:22:42.641
  • and no Covid-19 viruswill come near us.
  • 00:22:42.641 --> 00:22:45.477
  • No plague will come near us.
  • 00:22:45.477 --> 00:22:47.012
  • But we've long lifeyou satisfy us, amen.
  • 00:22:47.012 --> 00:22:47.913
  • Pray this prayer every day.
  • 00:22:47.913 --> 00:22:52.551
  • And don't make itlike a magic formula.
  • 00:22:52.551 --> 00:22:55.587
  • But spend time with God, andstart feeling safe and secure.
  • 00:22:55.587 --> 00:22:59.724
  • Because it's his perfectlove casts out fear.
  • 00:22:59.724 --> 00:23:02.694
  • Remember, perfect loveis not your love for God,
  • 00:23:02.694 --> 00:23:05.263
  • but his love for you.
  • 00:23:05.263 --> 00:23:07.232
  • And as you practice thatevery day in his presence,
  • 00:23:07.232 --> 00:23:09.334
  • you'd be surprisedto look around
  • 00:23:09.334 --> 00:23:12.103
  • and find that the fear is gone,
  • 00:23:12.103 --> 00:23:13.638
  • and you're in a positionto help minister to others.
  • 00:23:13.638 --> 00:23:16.608
  • In Jesus name, amen.
  • 00:23:16.608 --> 00:23:18.610
  • - I love pastor what youbrought up on this broadcast,
  • 00:23:18.610 --> 00:23:23.515
  • that the last time wewere physically together
  • 00:23:23.515 --> 00:23:27.219
  • and we're not having topractice social distancing,
  • 00:23:27.219 --> 00:23:30.422
  • - which we can't, we stillcan't figure it out yet
  • 00:23:30.422 --> 00:23:32.757
  • - Yeah, well, you can only getso far apart in the same bed.
  • 00:23:32.757 --> 00:23:37.028
  • So I mean, that'sall there is to that.
  • 00:23:37.028 --> 00:23:39.898
  • So ultimately, we were together
  • 00:23:39.898 --> 00:23:43.068
  • and literally, wetalked about a subject
  • 00:23:43.068 --> 00:23:47.372
  • of supernatural protection.
  • 00:23:47.372 --> 00:23:49.374
  • We interviewed onthat exact subject.
  • 00:23:49.374 --> 00:23:52.878
  • - Yes we did.
  • 00:23:52.878 --> 00:23:54.145
  • - And it was thelast thing that we,
  • 00:23:54.145 --> 00:23:57.549
  • when we were togetherlast year, late last year.
  • 00:23:57.549 --> 00:24:01.353
  • - In Colorado.- was the last thing
  • 00:24:01.353 --> 00:24:02.420
  • we did together.
  • 00:24:02.420 --> 00:24:04.022
  • And so I find that a propheticgesture in and of itself.
  • 00:24:04.022 --> 00:24:09.027
  • And there's a few momentsfrom that broadcast
  • 00:24:10.395 --> 00:24:14.733
  • that here in the last fewminutes I just wanted to go to.
  • 00:24:14.733 --> 00:24:17.602
  • And then pastor whenwe come back from that,
  • 00:24:17.602 --> 00:24:19.804
  • just a final thoughtson life in general.
  • 00:24:19.804 --> 00:24:24.543
  • - Okay.
  • 00:24:24.543 --> 00:24:25.710
  • - What we're reallytalking about
  • 00:24:25.710 --> 00:24:27.212
  • is the idea that Christianscan have a supernatural level
  • 00:24:27.212 --> 00:24:31.816
  • of assurance and safetyand other things and...
  • 00:24:33.184 --> 00:24:38.189
  • - You know, I rememberreading in one of your emails
  • 00:24:40.191 --> 00:24:42.961
  • about a testimony ofone of your members
  • 00:24:42.961 --> 00:24:46.298
  • of your church in Singapore
  • 00:24:46.298 --> 00:24:47.933
  • and that they were ina very bad situation,
  • 00:24:49.734 --> 00:24:53.872
  • you tell the story,
  • 00:24:53.872 --> 00:24:55.140
  • it was some kind of anexplosion that happened.
  • 00:24:55.140 --> 00:24:56.841
  • - Yes, that's right, inAugust the 5th in 2003,
  • 00:24:56.841 --> 00:25:01.713
  • this event happenedin Jakarta, Indonesia,
  • 00:25:03.048 --> 00:25:07.485
  • a suicide bomberblew up a car bomb
  • 00:25:07.485 --> 00:25:10.789
  • and the entirelobby was decimated,
  • 00:25:12.223 --> 00:25:14.926
  • it was like the bombjust went through,
  • 00:25:16.127 --> 00:25:18.096
  • and this member, our churchmember who was there,
  • 00:25:18.096 --> 00:25:21.399
  • at the lobby at the same time,
  • 00:25:21.399 --> 00:25:23.268
  • he said that he justhad a suddening,
  • 00:25:23.268 --> 00:25:25.737

  • he saw a body flyacross in front of him,
  • 00:25:27.138 --> 00:25:30.375
  • and when all the dust settled,
  • 00:25:31.843 --> 00:25:33.278
  • and the deafening noisewas just lingering,
  • 00:25:33.278 --> 00:25:35.714
  • he said he lookedat his clothes,
  • 00:25:35.714 --> 00:25:37.682
  • he was splattered with blood,
  • 00:25:37.682 --> 00:25:39.184
  • but it wasn't his blood.

  • He was unscathed,he was unharmed,

  • he walked right behind a pillar.
  • 00:25:47.225 --> 00:25:49.060
  • Now talk about rightplace right time.
  • 00:25:50.528 --> 00:25:53.298
  • And this is what whatwe can believe God.
  • 00:25:53.298 --> 00:25:55.300
  • In these last days whendanger is abounding,
  • 00:25:55.300 --> 00:25:58.269
  • when there's all kindsof attacks of the enemy
  • 00:25:58.269 --> 00:26:01.206
  • and we're seeing it happen
  • 00:26:01.206 --> 00:26:02.507
  • even to the body ofChrist and leaders,
  • 00:26:02.507 --> 00:26:04.042

  • like a darkness, a deepdepression coming on people
  • 00:26:07.145 --> 00:26:10.582
  • and all that,
  • 00:26:10.582 --> 00:26:12.150
  • we need to trust the Lordfor his protection upon us
  • 00:26:12.150 --> 00:26:15.053
  • and upon our families,upon our children,
  • 00:26:15.053 --> 00:26:17.956
  • upon the people of our church,
  • 00:26:17.956 --> 00:26:20.058

  • all your smarts andyour intelligence
  • 00:26:27.232 --> 00:26:29.067

  • you can be aprofessor of Harvard,

  • at the right time,
  • 00:26:45.050 --> 00:26:46.217
  • and there's averse in the Bible,
  • 00:26:46.217 --> 00:26:47.485
  • in fact, I know this byheart because it's 9:11,
  • 00:26:47.485 --> 00:26:50.789
  • Ecclesiastes 9:11,
  • 00:26:50.789 --> 00:26:52.724
  • it says that,
  • 00:26:52.724 --> 00:26:54.059
  • Solomon says by the Spirit,
  • 00:26:54.059 --> 00:26:56.294
  • "I observe somethingunder the sun."
  • 00:26:56.294 --> 00:26:58.163
  • He says that the swiftis not always the one
  • 00:26:59.397 --> 00:27:02.567
  • that wins the first place,
  • 00:27:02.567 --> 00:27:04.769
  • the battle is notthrough the swift,
  • 00:27:04.769 --> 00:27:06.938
  • riches is not to menof understanding,
  • 00:27:06.938 --> 00:27:09.674
  • I observe that the battleis not through the strong,
  • 00:27:09.674 --> 00:27:12.777
  • but time and chancehappen to them all.
  • 00:27:12.777 --> 00:27:16.514
  • Right place, right time,
  • 00:27:16.514 --> 00:27:18.650
  • and the Hebrew word is Kara,
  • 00:27:18.650 --> 00:27:19.884
  • which is actuallya chance happening,
  • 00:27:19.884 --> 00:27:23.288
  • a good happening,
  • 00:27:23.288 --> 00:27:24.923
  • a happening thathappens from God to you.
  • 00:27:24.923 --> 00:27:28.426
  • And that's when Abraham'sservant was sent
  • 00:27:28.426 --> 00:27:32.764
  • to find a bride,
  • 00:27:32.764 --> 00:27:33.998
  • he didn't know whothe bride would be,
  • 00:27:33.998 --> 00:27:35.633
  • and this is what he prayed,
  • 00:27:35.633 --> 00:27:36.901
  • in Hebrew it says,"Lord give me success,
  • 00:27:36.901 --> 00:27:40.004
  • as I stand here by the well,"
  • 00:27:40.004 --> 00:27:41.840
  • the word success there isactually the word Kara,
  • 00:27:41.840 --> 00:27:44.642
  • give me a chance happening,
  • 00:27:44.642 --> 00:27:47.846
  • give me a divine appointment,
  • 00:27:47.846 --> 00:27:51.082

  • Rebecca came out.
  • 00:27:55.253 --> 00:27:57.088
  • So this is what we need inour lives these last days,

  • But I surely am in the rightplace, at the right time.
  • 00:28:02.861 --> 00:28:05.930
  • - I want to encourageeveryone that's watching

  • But God has shown anddemonstrated that every time
  • 00:29:47.932 --> 00:29:50.001
  • his people are in famine,

  • 00:32:49.981 --> 00:32:51.682
  • there'll be wars.
  • 00:32:51.682 --> 00:32:53.484
  • Now that has happenedin our generation,
  • 00:32:53.484 --> 00:32:55.253
  • not our generation,not mine also, but,
  • 00:32:55.253 --> 00:32:58.189
  • we have seen World War I, amen,
  • 00:32:58.189 --> 00:33:01.025
  • at the turn of the last century.
  • 00:33:01.025 --> 00:33:03.127
  • And then we haveseen World War II.
  • 00:33:03.127 --> 00:33:04.962
  • That's never happened before.
  • 00:33:04.962 --> 00:33:06.798
  • Amen, world wars.
  • 00:33:06.798 --> 00:33:08.232
  • And then we see the increaseof great earthquakes.
  • 00:33:08.232 --> 00:33:12.103
  • Jesus said, "Great earthquakes."
  • 00:33:12.103 --> 00:33:14.005
  • Not small earthquakes.
  • 00:33:14.005 --> 00:33:15.973
  • More than a 6.5 onthe Richter scale.
  • 00:33:15.973 --> 00:33:18.609
  • We see that happeningnow, almost every month.
  • 00:33:18.609 --> 00:33:23.581
  • Amen.
  • 00:33:23.581 --> 00:33:24.816
  • And plagues, pestilencesin different places.
  • 00:33:24.816 --> 00:33:29.020
  • These things are not from God.
  • 00:33:29.020 --> 00:33:30.788
  • He's just telling youwhat is going to happen
  • 00:33:30.788 --> 00:33:32.356
  • because the devil is soafraid at what is coming.
  • 00:33:32.356 --> 00:33:35.526
  • He knows that the day ofvengeance upon him, amen,
  • 00:33:35.526 --> 00:33:39.297
  • and also upon all thosewho reject Jesus Christ.
  • 00:33:39.297 --> 00:33:41.566
  • Because, listen, thegrave, death and hell,
  • 00:33:41.566 --> 00:33:45.570
  • is something that God hates.
  • 00:33:45.570 --> 00:33:47.338
  • God never meant formen to go there.
  • 00:33:48.473 --> 00:33:50.274
  • In fact, God callsdeath an enemy.
  • 00:33:50.274 --> 00:33:53.144
  • God told Adam, "Don'teat of that fruit.
  • 00:33:53.144 --> 00:33:55.913
  • "The day you eat of it,you shall surely die."
  • 00:33:55.913 --> 00:33:58.883
  • See, God's heart isnot for men to die,
  • 00:33:58.883 --> 00:34:00.518
  • but God gave men a choice.
  • 00:34:00.518 --> 00:34:01.886
  • You can say, "Whydidn't God stop men
  • 00:34:01.886 --> 00:34:03.354
  • "from eating that fruit?"
  • 00:34:03.354 --> 00:34:04.856
  • Well, if God can stop menfrom eating that fruit,
  • 00:34:04.856 --> 00:34:07.191
  • God can stop manfrom doing anything.
  • 00:34:07.191 --> 00:34:09.360
  • Wherein, then, is thefree choice that men
  • 00:34:09.360 --> 00:34:11.596
  • was given by God.
  • 00:34:11.596 --> 00:34:12.930
  • Amen, God gave manthe free choice.
  • 00:34:12.930 --> 00:34:14.398
  • God doesn't want arobot loving him.
  • 00:34:14.398 --> 00:34:16.901
  • God wanted a man to love him,
  • 00:34:16.901 --> 00:34:18.503
  • because he wants to love him.
  • 00:34:18.503 --> 00:34:20.538
  • Amen.
  • 00:34:20.538 --> 00:34:21.706
  • We choose to worshipthe Lord today
  • 00:34:21.706 --> 00:34:22.874
  • because we want to worship him.
  • 00:34:22.874 --> 00:34:24.609
  • But imagine a robot, blessthe Lord, oh my soul,
  • 00:34:25.977 --> 00:34:28.913
  • and all that is within me.
  • 00:34:28.913 --> 00:34:30.581
  • Do you think God wants that?
  • 00:34:30.581 --> 00:34:32.350
  • Do you want someone like that?
  • 00:34:32.350 --> 00:34:33.818
  • I know that does.
  • 00:34:34.986 --> 00:34:36.420
  • Comes dramas with robotsfalling in love and all that.
  • 00:34:36.420 --> 00:34:38.789
  • I'm talking aboutsomeone loving you
  • 00:34:38.789 --> 00:34:40.892
  • being married tosomeone who is a robot.
  • 00:34:40.892 --> 00:34:43.060
  • Pastor Prince, I thinkI'm married to someone
  • 00:34:43.060 --> 00:34:44.862
  • who is like a robot.
  • 00:34:44.862 --> 00:34:46.330
  • I'm talking about real,he gave us a free choice.
  • 00:34:46.330 --> 00:34:49.133
  • Amen.
  • 00:34:49.133 --> 00:34:51.235
  • Right now you can stand up,
  • 00:34:51.235 --> 00:34:52.503
  • like some of you are doing,
  • 00:34:52.503 --> 00:34:53.771
  • and go to the kitchen toget your special drink.
  • 00:34:53.771 --> 00:34:57.108
  • No one can stop you, right?
  • 00:34:57.108 --> 00:34:58.709
  • Amen.
  • 00:34:58.709 --> 00:34:59.610
  • You have a choice.
  • 00:34:59.610 --> 00:35:01.479
  • God always respectsman's free choice.
  • 00:35:01.479 --> 00:35:03.981
  • But you cannot change theresult of your choice.
  • 00:35:03.981 --> 00:35:06.851
  • If you choose rebellion,the result is death.
  • 00:35:07.985 --> 00:35:12.190
  • You choose obedience,the result is life.
  • 00:35:12.190 --> 00:35:14.926
  • So God told Adam, "Don'teat from the tree."
  • 00:35:14.926 --> 00:35:16.894
  • So we all know this story.
  • 00:35:16.894 --> 00:35:18.029
  • Adam gave up God.
  • 00:35:18.029 --> 00:35:19.797
  • He gave God up.
  • 00:35:19.797 --> 00:35:21.165
  • People say God gaveAdam up for one fruit.
  • 00:35:22.333 --> 00:35:24.735
  • No, Adam gave God up.
  • 00:35:24.735 --> 00:35:26.837
  • Let's put it right, amen.
  • 00:35:27.872 --> 00:35:29.707
  • For one fruit.
  • 00:35:29.707 --> 00:35:30.541
  • Amen.
  • 00:35:31.442 --> 00:35:32.276
  • So death came in, amen.
  • 00:35:32.276 --> 00:35:34.111
  • That cannot be changed.
  • 00:35:34.111 --> 00:35:35.546
  • So death is total.
  • 00:35:35.546 --> 00:35:36.914
  • - You know, theCoronavirus thing,
  • 00:35:38.349 --> 00:35:39.317
  • people are not so afraid of the,
  • 00:35:39.317 --> 00:35:40.651
  • it's not so much ofthe virus itself,
  • 00:35:40.651 --> 00:35:43.154
  • it is, they are afraid of death.
  • 00:35:43.154 --> 00:35:45.790
  • Everybody's afraid of death.
  • 00:35:45.790 --> 00:35:47.792
  • So, the Christian policyis that death is behind us,
  • 00:35:47.792 --> 00:35:50.962
  • sin is behind us, doesn'tmean we are sinless,
  • 00:35:52.330 --> 00:35:55.666
  • I am saying that inGod's perspective, AMEN,
  • 00:35:55.666 --> 00:35:57.969
  • all sins are forgiven, weare, when we die with Christ,
  • 00:35:57.969 --> 00:36:01.672
  • we got crucified with Christ,we are buried with Christ,
  • 00:36:01.672 --> 00:36:04.775
  • there's the end ofour sinful nature,
  • 00:36:04.775 --> 00:36:06.811
  • we are crucified atthe cross, so to faith,
  • 00:36:06.811 --> 00:36:09.747
  • not to experience, but tofaith, it is a done deal,
  • 00:36:09.747 --> 00:36:13.818
  • but to experience, westill experience traits
  • 00:36:13.818 --> 00:36:17.121
  • of a sinful nature, butwe gotta walk in faith.
  • 00:36:17.121 --> 00:36:21.192
  • We will walk by faith andnot experience, not by sight.
  • 00:36:21.192 --> 00:36:24.128
  • And there are times,perhaps some of you,
  • 00:36:25.329 --> 00:36:26.831
  • you feel like God is sofar away, what is that?
  • 00:36:26.831 --> 00:36:29.667

  • - YES!
  • 00:36:37.141 --> 00:36:38.376

  • Very clear, I can'tfathom that still.
  • 00:36:46.751 --> 00:36:49.153
  • It's wonderful that Godloves me, and I believe
  • 00:36:49.153 --> 00:36:51.255
  • that he loves me verymuch, but to love me

  • we became his enemies, notthat he made us his enemies,
  • 00:37:53.918 --> 00:37:56.687
  • we made ourselves hisenemies, and he sent

  • of Jesus, every word that hespoke when he was unearthed,
  • 00:39:58.809 --> 00:40:01.378
  • exudes a fragrance ofres to the father, no one

  • about Melchizedek, infact Melchizedek appears
  • 00:40:51.428 --> 00:40:53.764
  • one time in Genesis:14, andthen one time in Psalms:110,
  • 00:40:53.764 --> 00:40:58.569
  • but in Hebrew:7, God hasa whole chapter about him,
  • 00:40:58.569 --> 00:41:01.805
  • and God is saying,Melchizedek is the priesthood
  • 00:41:01.805 --> 00:41:04.608
  • of my son, amen, he is thepriesthood that never seizes,

  • Right?

  • What about space?
  • 00:44:45.896 --> 00:44:46.797
  • Space is definitely restricted.
  • 00:44:48.065 --> 00:44:52.236
  • You can't just freely travelanywhere anymore, can you?
  • 00:44:53.670 --> 00:44:57.508
  • No.

  • as far as theworld is concerned,
  • 00:45:03.247 --> 00:45:05.649

  • Sometimes some days are solong and some days are so fast
  • 00:45:22.232 --> 00:45:25.569
  • and you can tell the Lord and,
  • 00:45:25.569 --> 00:45:27.070
  • "Lord, just give me for thisday, Lord, lengthen the day."
  • 00:45:27.070 --> 00:45:31.441
  • And he can do it.
  • 00:45:31.441 --> 00:45:32.509
  • He can do it.
  • 00:45:32.509 --> 00:45:33.811
  • The Bible says thatthe blessings of God
  • 00:45:33.811 --> 00:45:36.013
  • includes length of days
  • 00:45:36.013 --> 00:45:37.414
  • and long life in thebook of Proverbs.
  • 00:45:37.414 --> 00:45:40.150
  • And in the same verse, it says
  • 00:45:40.150 --> 00:45:41.084
  • length of days and long life.
  • 00:45:41.084 --> 00:45:42.653
  • So obviously long lifemeans you live long, yes.
  • 00:45:42.653 --> 00:45:44.621
  • But what about length of days?
  • 00:45:44.621 --> 00:45:46.089
  • That means your days are long.
  • 00:45:46.089 --> 00:45:47.191
  • - [Crowd] Amen.

  • When you have a good dayyou want it to last long.
  • 00:45:48.692 --> 00:45:51.361
  • When you have a bad day, youwant to get it over with.
  • 00:45:51.361 --> 00:45:53.997
  • So we see time andspace being affected,
  • 00:45:56.099 --> 00:45:59.903
  • but we, we are notpeople of the world.
  • 00:45:59.903 --> 00:46:02.139
  • We are not people of the world.
  • 00:46:02.139 --> 00:46:04.107
  • We have the Lordof time and space.
  • 00:46:04.107 --> 00:46:06.310
  • - [Crowd] Amen.
  • 00:46:06.310 --> 00:46:07.277
  • And in his first two miracles,
  • 00:46:07.277 --> 00:46:09.179
  • the Lord turn water into wine.
  • 00:46:09.179 --> 00:46:11.415
  • Now, for you to get wine,how long does it take?
  • 00:46:11.415 --> 00:46:15.152
  • When I was inIsrael I found out,
  • 00:46:15.152 --> 00:46:17.521
  • it confirmed what I havebeen preaching for years.
  • 00:46:17.521 --> 00:46:20.624
  • There's a man therethat owns a vineyard
  • 00:46:20.624 --> 00:46:23.594
  • and he confirmed ittakes about three years
  • 00:46:23.594 --> 00:46:25.028
  • to get a good fruitout of the vineyard.
  • 00:46:25.028 --> 00:46:28.899
  • Amen.
  • 00:46:28.899 --> 00:46:29.833
  • You might have some earlier,
  • 00:46:29.833 --> 00:46:31.335
  • but getting good fruit you gotto have three to four years.
  • 00:46:31.335 --> 00:46:34.671
  • Then after that, youcan produce wine,
  • 00:46:34.671 --> 00:46:36.840
  • but it won't be quality wine,
  • 00:46:36.840 --> 00:46:38.475
  • won't be good wine.
  • 00:46:38.475 --> 00:46:39.977
  • You got to wait for anothertwo to three years again,
  • 00:46:39.977 --> 00:46:42.479
  • to get good wine.
  • 00:46:42.479 --> 00:46:43.881
  • But to get excellent wine,
  • 00:46:43.881 --> 00:46:46.049
  • you got to, after the wineis manufactured and all that,
  • 00:46:46.049 --> 00:46:49.386
  • you got to keep that wine.
  • 00:46:49.386 --> 00:46:50.854
  • Usually people keep itin the cellar, right?
  • 00:46:50.854 --> 00:46:53.056
  • And the longer the winematures, the better it is.
  • 00:46:53.056 --> 00:46:57.761
  • You have excellent wine.
  • 00:46:57.761 --> 00:46:59.630
  • And what happened atthe wedding was that
  • 00:46:59.630 --> 00:47:01.665
  • they ran out of wine.
  • 00:47:01.665 --> 00:47:03.667
  • And it's embarrassingthing for Jewish families,
  • 00:47:03.667 --> 00:47:08.672
  • in Bible timesespecially, even now also,
  • 00:47:09.940 --> 00:47:11.174
  • but especially when thewine runs out because
  • 00:47:11.174 --> 00:47:13.810
  • wine is a symbol ofjoy in Bible times.
  • 00:47:13.810 --> 00:47:16.713
  • So it ran out,
  • 00:47:16.713 --> 00:47:18.181
  • it's like the joy ranout on their wedding day.
  • 00:47:18.181 --> 00:47:21.151
  • And of course, Jesusturned the water into wine,
  • 00:47:21.151 --> 00:47:23.587
  • about 20 to 30 gallons.
  • 00:47:23.587 --> 00:47:25.923
  • He didn't have to turn 20to 30 gallons into wine.
  • 00:47:25.923 --> 00:47:29.893
  • And the master ofceremonies said this,
  • 00:47:29.893 --> 00:47:32.062
  • "All the men, the groom,most people serve wine,
  • 00:47:33.664 --> 00:47:37.401
  • the good wine first,
  • 00:47:37.401 --> 00:47:38.802
  • and then when people aredrunk, they can drink anything,
  • 00:47:38.802 --> 00:47:41.605
  • not even wine,they will drink it,
  • 00:47:41.605 --> 00:47:42.806
  • right, because they're drunk,
  • 00:47:42.806 --> 00:47:45.108
  • but you have kept thebest wine even until now."
  • 00:47:45.108 --> 00:47:50.080
  • Amen.
  • 00:47:50.547 --> 00:47:51.748
  • So the Lord, whathe did was that,
  • 00:47:51.748 --> 00:47:53.317
  • he took somethingthat will take what,
  • 00:47:53.317 --> 00:47:55.018
  • seven years, eight years,ten years to get good wine,
  • 00:47:55.018 --> 00:47:59.056
  • 20 years, the longer the better.
  • 00:47:59.056 --> 00:48:01.058
  • Amen.
  • 00:48:01.058 --> 00:48:02.526
  • And he constrained it intoone fell swoop because
  • 00:48:02.526 --> 00:48:04.361
  • he's the Lord of time.
  • 00:48:04.361 --> 00:48:06.496
  • Another good Amen.
  • 00:48:06.496 --> 00:48:08.065
  • What about space,the next miracle?
  • 00:48:08.065 --> 00:48:10.734
  • The Bible tells us thisis the first miracle,
  • 00:48:10.734 --> 00:48:13.236
  • he turned water into wine,
  • 00:48:13.236 --> 00:48:15.005
  • showing that hehas a lot of time.
  • 00:48:15.005 --> 00:48:16.940
  • Amen.
  • 00:48:16.940 --> 00:48:18.208
  • And he has the times ofyour life in his hands.
  • 00:48:18.208 --> 00:48:22.412
  • Amen.
  • 00:48:22.412 --> 00:48:23.246
  • You can talk to him,
  • 00:48:23.246 --> 00:48:24.481
  • you can tell him toaccelerate time for you.
  • 00:48:24.481 --> 00:48:26.583
  • Amen.
  • 00:48:26.583 --> 00:48:28.051
  • And to facilitate time foryou, to add time in your life,
  • 00:48:28.051 --> 00:48:32.422
  • He's the Lord of time becauseHe lives outside time.
  • 00:48:33.757 --> 00:48:35.592
  • - God is not within time.
  • 00:48:36.460 --> 00:48:37.361
  • God created time.
  • 00:48:37.361 --> 00:48:38.595
  • That's why the crossis outside time.
  • 00:48:38.595 --> 00:48:40.764
  • He died for all those before
  • 00:48:40.764 --> 00:48:42.899
  • and He died for allthose in the future.
  • 00:48:42.899 --> 00:48:45.268
  • Amen, because as faras God is concerned,
  • 00:48:45.268 --> 00:48:46.803
  • it's as if Jesus just died.
  • 00:48:46.803 --> 00:48:48.805
  • And one of the wayswe take communion
  • 00:48:48.805 --> 00:48:50.540
  • is always to take it fresh.
  • 00:48:50.540 --> 00:48:52.609
  • When we come to the Lord,
  • 00:48:52.609 --> 00:48:53.944
  • we take it as if Hejust died just now.
  • 00:48:53.944 --> 00:48:55.912
  • Amen, one of the principles ofreceiving the peace offering,
  • 00:48:57.514 --> 00:49:00.984
  • the Bible says don't let itlast more than three days.
  • 00:49:00.984 --> 00:49:04.021
  • Stay close to the sacrifice,amen, keep it fresh.
  • 00:49:04.021 --> 00:49:07.624
  • So most people think of itlike He died 2000 years ago.
  • 00:49:07.624 --> 00:49:10.027
  • No, no, no, as far as God'sconcerned, He died just now.
  • 00:49:10.027 --> 00:49:13.296
  • Outside time, take it fresh.
  • 00:49:13.296 --> 00:49:15.165
  • And I always like to tell Him,
  • 00:49:15.165 --> 00:49:17.167
  • Lord, I'm receiving theseelements fresh from your hands.
  • 00:49:17.167 --> 00:49:20.737
  • I'm receiving them as fromyour hands, it's fresh.
  • 00:49:22.205 --> 00:49:24.941
  • And when I say by your stripes,
  • 00:49:24.941 --> 00:49:26.443
  • it's just as if He dothe scourging just now.
  • 00:49:26.443 --> 00:49:29.413
  • Amen, do it in that waybecause he's the Lord of time.
  • 00:49:30.847 --> 00:49:34.718
  • Amen, the next miracle spacewas when He was back in Cana,
  • 00:49:34.718 --> 00:49:38.221
  • the same place where Heturned the water into wine.
  • 00:49:38.221 --> 00:49:41.124
  • And a man came to Him and saidhis son is sick, a noble man.
  • 00:49:41.124 --> 00:49:45.429
  • And Jesus says, "Go yourway, your son lives."
  • 00:49:45.429 --> 00:49:47.597
  • Now, from Cana where Jesus was
  • 00:49:47.597 --> 00:49:49.666
  • and the father cameto Jesus in Cana,
  • 00:49:49.666 --> 00:49:52.102
  • the son was is in Capernaum.
  • 00:49:52.102 --> 00:49:53.670
  • That's about 40 overkilometers, about 25 miles.
  • 00:49:53.670 --> 00:49:57.441
  • So when Jesus says, "Goyour way, your son lives",
  • 00:49:59.109 --> 00:50:01.878
  • we know that the manspent the night in Cana.
  • 00:50:01.878 --> 00:50:05.582
  • That shows faith.
  • 00:50:05.582 --> 00:50:07.517
  • He didn't have togo back immediately.
  • 00:50:07.517 --> 00:50:09.352
  • He stayed overnight,because why?
  • 00:50:09.352 --> 00:50:11.021
  • The Lord has spoken, friends,the Lord has spoken to us.
  • 00:50:11.021 --> 00:50:15.025
  • He says Psalms 91, surely,not maybe, not perhaps.
  • 00:50:15.025 --> 00:50:19.062
  • Surely He shall deliver youfrom the snare of the fowler
  • 00:50:19.062 --> 00:50:22.466
  • and from theperilous pestilence.
  • 00:50:22.466 --> 00:50:25.569
  • This is definitely a perilous,
  • 00:50:25.569 --> 00:50:26.970
  • a dangerous pestilence, right?
  • 00:50:26.970 --> 00:50:28.772
  • Surely He shall deliveryou, not maybe, surely!
  • 00:50:28.772 --> 00:50:33.543
  • Amen, in fact of allthe verses in Psalms 91,
  • 00:50:33.543 --> 00:50:36.313
  • that's the one He punctuates!
  • 00:50:36.313 --> 00:50:37.747
  • He starts off with surelyHe shall deliver you
  • 00:50:37.747 --> 00:50:41.518
  • from the snare of the fowler
  • 00:50:41.518 --> 00:50:43.587
  • and from the perilouspestilence, let's rest in that.
  • 00:50:43.587 --> 00:50:47.557
  • God's supply is unlimited, amen.
  • 00:50:47.557 --> 00:50:50.260
  • We limit the HolyOne of Israel, amen.
  • 00:50:50.260 --> 00:50:52.295
  • That's why Jesus says,"O you of little faith".
  • 00:50:52.295 --> 00:50:56.733
  • You know He never says,"O you of little fasting".
  • 00:50:56.733 --> 00:50:59.002
  • He never says things like,"O you of little prayer".
  • 00:50:59.002 --> 00:51:02.506
  • Although thesethings are important,
  • 00:51:02.506 --> 00:51:04.841
  • He says, "O you oflittle faith", why?
  • 00:51:04.841 --> 00:51:08.612
  • Because faith isthe hand that takes.
  • 00:51:08.612 --> 00:51:10.580
  • Faith is the hand that takes.
  • 00:51:12.082 --> 00:51:13.550
  • It's almost as if He's saying,"O you of little faith",
  • 00:51:13.550 --> 00:51:17.053
  • it's like "why do youtake so little from me
  • 00:51:17.053 --> 00:51:20.257
  • "when I'm so full?
  • 00:51:20.257 --> 00:51:22.125
  • "Why do you depend on me solittle when I'm so able too?
  • 00:51:22.125 --> 00:51:27.130
  • "Why do you depend onyour limited resources
  • 00:51:28.331 --> 00:51:30.133
  • "when I have aninexhaustible supply?
  • 00:51:30.133 --> 00:51:32.903
  • "And I love you, Oyou of little faith,
  • 00:51:34.204 --> 00:51:37.474
  • "why do you take so little?"
  • 00:51:37.474 --> 00:51:39.276
  • Even His indictmentsare encouragements.
  • 00:51:39.276 --> 00:51:43.380
  • Isn't the Lord beautiful, amen.
  • 00:51:43.380 --> 00:51:46.316
  • Praise the Lord, ifyou are watching this,
  • 00:51:46.316 --> 00:51:48.318
  • and you have neverreceived the Lord Jesus
  • 00:51:48.318 --> 00:51:51.221

  • I want to give you thisopportunity right now.

  • Wherever you're watchingthis, just take time.
  • 00:51:54.524 --> 00:51:56.626
  • If you can, just bow your heads
  • 00:51:56.626 --> 00:51:57.727
  • and close your eyes if you can.

  • More importantly, praythis from your heart.
  • 00:51:59.663 --> 00:52:01.965
  • Say, "Lord Jesus, Ibelieve you are my savior.
  • 00:52:03.333 --> 00:52:06.570
  • "You came to die on the cross
  • 00:52:07.938 --> 00:52:09.806
  • "for all my sins.
