  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- ()
  • 00:00:05.090 --> 00:00:08.090
  • Reaching Israel
  • 00:00:08.090 --> 00:00:11.070
  • 00:00:14.190 --> 00:00:19.230
  • Sounds of shofar
  • 00:00:19.260 --> 00:00:22.150
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Baruch
  • 00:00:21.070 --> 00:00:24.070
  • Hashem beloved ones.
  • 00:00:24.070 --> 00:00:25.010
  • Bless the name of the Lord.
  • 00:00:25.010 --> 00:00:26.110
  • And peace to you.
  • 00:00:26.110 --> 00:00:27.170
  • we're journeying into divine
  • 00:00:29.190 --> 00:00:31.020
  • love through the mystery of
  • 00:00:31.020 --> 00:00:32.270
  • the Song of Songs.
  • 00:00:32.270 --> 00:00:34.150
  • And today one of the things
  • 00:00:34.150 --> 00:00:36.000
  • on is this, the mystery of
  • 00:00:36.280 --> 00:00:39.210
  • how we actually partner with
  • 00:00:39.210 --> 00:00:42.010
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- Wow.
  • 00:00:44.080 --> 00:00:44.290
  • He created us for this purpose.
  • 00:00:44.290 --> 00:00:47.080
  • There's a reason why He put
  • 00:00:47.080 --> 00:00:49.100
  • universe, on this earth, at
  • 00:00:51.110 --> 00:00:53.160
  • this time, at this season.
  • 00:00:53.160 --> 00:00:55.130
  • He knows that we must
  • 00:00:55.130 --> 00:00:57.200
  • partner together with Him to
  • 00:00:57.200 --> 00:00:59.200
  • accomplish divine, almighty
  • 00:00:59.250 --> 00:01:02.270
  • purposes that will culminate
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:05.260
  • with His return.
  • 00:01:05.260 --> 00:01:06.230
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Amen and
  • 00:01:06.230 --> 00:01:07.140
  • you know I think at the
  • 00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:08.190
  • heart of the purpose,
  • 00:01:08.190 --> 00:01:09.160
  • it's simply love.
  • 00:01:09.160 --> 00:01:11.050
  • At the heart of the
  • 00:01:11.050 --> 00:01:11.240
  • purpose it's love.
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:13.010
  • Even though there's a work
  • 00:01:13.010 --> 00:01:13.280
  • to do, which is an overflow
  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:15.130
  • of the relationship; at the
  • 00:01:15.130 --> 00:01:16.210
  • end of the day what He
  • 00:01:16.210 --> 00:01:18.060
  • wants is a marriage
  • 00:01:18.060 --> 00:01:20.100
  • relationship with us.
  • 00:01:20.100 --> 00:01:21.180
  • I mean it's difficult to try
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:22.290
  • to talk about marriage in
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:24.150
  • relationship with God, but
  • 00:01:24.150 --> 00:01:25.230
  • marriage is a symbol of the
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:27.060
  • deepest type of intimacy two
  • 00:01:27.060 --> 00:01:29.110
  • people can have together.
  • 00:01:29.110 --> 00:01:30.280
  • And God's a person.
  • 00:01:30.280 --> 00:01:32.030
  • CYNTHIA SCHNEIDER- Yes.
  • 00:01:32.030 --> 00:01:32.290
  • When I learned that, that
  • 00:01:32.290 --> 00:01:34.080
  • word know, He wants to know
  • 00:01:34.080 --> 00:01:35.150
  • us, we need to know Him; is
  • 00:01:35.150 --> 00:01:37.050
  • a word that's used for a
  • 00:01:37.050 --> 00:01:38.270
  • marriage encounter. That's
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:40.230
  • how deep this love goes.
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:43.060
  • So Lord we just lift our
  • 00:01:43.060 --> 00:01:44.060
  • hearts to You today.
  • 00:01:44.060 --> 00:01:45.140
  • Come in and
  • 00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:46.110
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- We're
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:54.210
  • into the mystery of
  • 00:01:56.000 --> 00:01:57.100
  • the Song of Songs.
  • 00:01:57.100 --> 00:01:58.240
  • This is one of the most
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:01:59.220
  • beautiful books in the
  • 00:01:59.220 --> 00:02:01.130
  • entire Word of God.
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:02.170
  • It was considered by the
  • 00:02:02.170 --> 00:02:03.260
  • Holy of Holies of the Bible.
  • 00:02:05.210 --> 00:02:08.040
  • Why would it be called the
  • 00:02:08.040 --> 00:02:09.030
  • Holy of Holies of the Bible
  • 00:02:09.030 --> 00:02:10.250
  • by the ancient sages?
  • 00:02:10.250 --> 00:02:12.080
  • Because when you think about
  • 00:02:12.080 --> 00:02:13.040
  • the Holy of Holies, which
  • 00:02:13.040 --> 00:02:15.030
  • was first in the tabernacle
  • 00:02:15.030 --> 00:02:16.290
  • and then in the temple, it
  • 00:02:16.290 --> 00:02:18.270
  • was in the Holy of Holies
  • 00:02:18.270 --> 00:02:20.240
  • that intimacy with
  • 00:02:20.240 --> 00:02:21.250
  • God was most felt.
  • 00:02:21.250 --> 00:02:24.130
  • And this book, the Song of
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:25.170
  • Songs, reveals to us like no
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:28.140
  • scriptures, the depth of the
  • 00:02:29.240 --> 00:02:31.210
  • love that God feels for us
  • 00:02:31.210 --> 00:02:34.000
  • in an emotional way.
  • 00:02:34.070 --> 00:02:37.070
  • We're gonna take a dive into
  • 00:02:37.070 --> 00:02:38.260
  • people and the type of
  • 00:02:40.050 --> 00:02:41.260
  • feelings He wants to elicit
  • 00:02:41.260 --> 00:02:43.080
  • I really want to encourage
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:47.120
  • you to go back and watch the
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:49.200
  • first two episodes in this
  • 00:02:49.200 --> 00:02:50.290
  • series, because I laid a
  • 00:02:50.290 --> 00:02:52.030
  • foundation I don't want you
  • 00:02:52.030 --> 00:02:53.220
  • to miss. This teaching
  • 00:02:53.220 --> 00:02:55.250
  • will change your life.
  • 00:02:55.250 --> 00:02:57.100
  • five, zero, on this book
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:01.080
  • years ago and I still have
  • 00:03:01.080 --> 00:03:03.030
  • people writing me letters
  • 00:03:03.030 --> 00:03:04.290
  • how it changed their life.
  • 00:03:04.290 --> 00:03:06.170
  • So with that introduction,
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:07.170
  • beloved, I'm gonna jump back in.
  • 00:03:07.170 --> 00:03:09.040
  • I'm gonna pick up where I
  • 00:03:09.040 --> 00:03:10.040
  • left off last week.
  • 00:03:10.040 --> 00:03:11.240
  • We're going today
  • 00:03:11.240 --> 00:03:12.220
  • to verse number 4.
  • 00:03:12.220 --> 00:03:13.290
  • After the Shulamite bride,
  • 00:03:13.290 --> 00:03:15.200
  • who's a shadow of you and I,
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:17.040
  • cries out to God telling Him,
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:19.000
  • "How much I want to feel You.
  • 00:03:19.000 --> 00:03:20.180
  • How much I want to feel Your
  • 00:03:20.180 --> 00:03:21.200
  • embrace. How I want to feel
  • 00:03:21.200 --> 00:03:23.050
  • Your love." She says this.
  • 00:03:23.050 --> 00:03:24.200
  • this, "Draw me after You and
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:29.080
  • let us run together!"
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:31.150
  • Listen once again.
  • 00:03:31.150 --> 00:03:32.130
  • There are two prayers here.
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:34.030
  • She said, "Draw me after You
  • 00:03:34.030 --> 00:03:36.210
  • and let us run together!"
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:38.050
  • with the kisses of Your mouth."
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:40.180
  • And then she says, "Draw me
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:41.270
  • after You and let us run
  • 00:03:41.270 --> 00:03:44.000
  • together!" You're so beautiful
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:45.080
  • to me, I want Your partnership
  • 00:03:45.080 --> 00:03:47.070
  • so bad in my life.
  • 00:03:47.070 --> 00:03:48.240
  • I want to walk with You.
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:50.040
  • I want to know You
  • 00:03:50.040 --> 00:03:51.040
  • as my best friend.
  • 00:03:51.040 --> 00:03:52.100
  • I want to know You as my
  • 00:03:52.100 --> 00:03:53.140
  • most intimate lover.
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:54.290
  • I want to know You as the
  • 00:03:54.290 --> 00:03:55.240
  • lover of my soul.
  • 00:03:55.240 --> 00:03:57.090
  • I want to feel Your presence
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:03:58.240
  • around my life.
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:03:59.170
  • I don't want to do anything
  • 00:03:59.170 --> 00:04:00.270
  • in life without You.
  • 00:04:00.270 --> 00:04:02.160
  • I want to feel
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:03.070
  • how near You are.
  • 00:04:03.070 --> 00:04:04.130
  • I want to walk with
  • 00:04:04.130 --> 00:04:05.040
  • You hand in hand.
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:06.110
  • I want You to be more real
  • 00:04:06.110 --> 00:04:07.180
  • to me then my brother, or my
  • 00:04:07.180 --> 00:04:09.070
  • sister, or my mom, or my dad.
  • 00:04:09.070 --> 00:04:11.020
  • God I want You more
  • 00:04:11.020 --> 00:04:12.040
  • than anything else.
  • 00:04:12.040 --> 00:04:13.250
  • And so she says, first of
  • 00:04:13.250 --> 00:04:15.040
  • all, "Draw me." Listen.
  • 00:04:15.040 --> 00:04:17.150
  • "Draw me after You."
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:20.020
  • Now I want you to compare
  • 00:04:20.020 --> 00:04:21.090
  • this to what Jesus said
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:22.280
  • In John chapter 6,
  • 00:04:24.180 --> 00:04:25.210
  • Yeshua's speaking. He was
  • 00:04:25.210 --> 00:04:27.080
  • and drinking His blood.
  • 00:04:29.030 --> 00:04:30.170
  • He was talking about being
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:31.160
  • the bread of life that came
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:33.050
  • down out of heaven.
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:34.190
  • And most of the people that
  • 00:04:34.190 --> 00:04:36.040
  • He was declaring these
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:37.100
  • things to, said, "Who can
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:39.040
  • listen to this? This is
  • 00:04:39.040 --> 00:04:40.290
  • a difficult statement."
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:42.100
  • It really turned them off
  • 00:04:42.100 --> 00:04:43.180
  • and they left. There was
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:45.140
  • just a few that remained.
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:47.180
  • ones that remain said, "No
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:52.010
  • man can come to Me unless
  • 00:04:52.010 --> 00:04:53.110
  • it's been granted
  • 00:04:53.110 --> 00:04:54.210
  • by the Father."
  • 00:04:54.210 --> 00:04:55.280
  • And He just said previous to
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:04:57.010
  • that, "And no man can come
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:58.240
  • to Me," listen, "No man can
  • 00:04:58.240 --> 00:05:00.220
  • come to Me unless
  • 00:05:00.220 --> 00:05:02.190
  • the Father draws him."
  • 00:05:02.190 --> 00:05:04.290
  • got done crying out.
  • 00:05:06.150 --> 00:05:07.260
  • "Draw me after you!"
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:10.000
  • And Jesus said, "No man
  • 00:05:10.000 --> 00:05:12.100
  • can come to Me unless
  • 00:05:12.100 --> 00:05:14.170
  • the Father draws him."
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:16.180
  • So our ability to come to
  • 00:05:16.180 --> 00:05:18.280
  • God, our ability to come
  • 00:05:18.280 --> 00:05:21.040
  • to experience His love;
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:25.130
  • although there's a choice
  • 00:05:25.130 --> 00:05:26.220
  • that we must make, it also
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:29.090
  • is dependent, listen, on Him
  • 00:05:29.090 --> 00:05:31.100
  • drawing us to Himself.
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:34.040
  • You'll notice as I'm taking
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:35.060
  • beloved children of God,
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:37.250
  • sometimes I'll say, "Listen."
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:39.090
  • And there's been a few
  • 00:05:39.090 --> 00:05:40.000
  • people over the years that
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:41.050
  • have been offended.
  • 00:05:41.050 --> 00:05:41.280
  • You don't need to say listen.
  • 00:05:41.280 --> 00:05:43.020
  • But the reason I say listen,
  • 00:05:43.020 --> 00:05:45.030
  • is because I'm about to say
  • 00:05:45.030 --> 00:05:46.070
  • something that I really want
  • 00:05:46.070 --> 00:05:47.250
  • you to get and I know
  • 00:05:47.250 --> 00:05:49.190
  • sometimes after listening to
  • 00:05:49.190 --> 00:05:51.060
  • somebody speak for twenty
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:52.070
  • minutes and they're speaking
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:53.200
  • and speaking, your mind
  • 00:05:53.200 --> 00:05:54.280
  • can begin to drift.
  • 00:05:54.280 --> 00:05:56.030
  • So to keep your mind from
  • 00:05:56.030 --> 00:05:57.070
  • drifting, every now and then
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:05:58.140
  • I'll say, "Listen." Because I
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:05:59.200
  • really want you to catch this.
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:01.040
  • I want you to consider with
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:02.220
  • me this concept of us being
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.250
  • dependent on the Lord to
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:06.200
  • draw us to Himself.
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:08.070
  • Again, the Shulamite bride
  • 00:06:08.070 --> 00:06:09.150
  • says, "I want You Father.
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:10.240
  • I want to know You.
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:12.040
  • I want to feel You.
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:13.090
  • Draw me after You."
  • 00:06:13.090 --> 00:06:14.240
  • She realized that it
  • 00:06:14.240 --> 00:06:16.010
  • depended on God's
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:17.040
  • supernatural intervention.
  • 00:06:17.230 --> 00:06:20.230
  • It depended on the
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:21.160
  • power of the Spirit.
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:23.180
  • It depended on a life of
  • 00:06:23.180 --> 00:06:25.260
  • supernatural influence in
  • 00:06:25.260 --> 00:06:27.290
  • her life to bring
  • 00:06:27.290 --> 00:06:29.080
  • her into God.
  • 00:06:29.080 --> 00:06:31.010
  • She knew that there was that
  • 00:06:31.010 --> 00:06:32.000
  • dependency, that unless God
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:33.270
  • acted it wouldn't happen.
  • 00:06:33.270 --> 00:06:35.050
  • And this is what Yeshua was
  • 00:06:35.050 --> 00:06:36.130
  • accessing, "No man comes
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:37.290
  • to me unless the
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:39.000
  • Father draws him."
  • 00:06:39.000 --> 00:06:40.160
  • So two points I want to make
  • 00:06:40.160 --> 00:06:41.200
  • that are applicable
  • 00:06:41.200 --> 00:06:43.060
  • and have practical
  • 00:06:43.060 --> 00:06:43.280
  • Number one, we should put
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:47.220
  • our heart in a posture where
  • 00:06:47.220 --> 00:06:49.230
  • we realize that we just
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:51.010
  • can't come to God on our own.
  • 00:06:51.010 --> 00:06:53.080
  • It takes His drawing
  • 00:06:53.080 --> 00:06:54.170
  • for us to fully come.
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:56.070
  • And so we need to be in that
  • 00:06:56.070 --> 00:06:57.110
  • posture of humility, like
  • 00:06:57.110 --> 00:06:58.260
  • I would suggest and encourage
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:02.150
  • you, pray this prayer.
  • 00:07:02.150 --> 00:07:04.090
  • You know make it part of
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:05.070
  • your prayer dialogue with God.
  • 00:07:05.070 --> 00:07:06.240
  • Father draw me to You.
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:08.160
  • Draw me to Yourself.
  • 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:09.210
  • know You; because we're
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:11.140
  • dependent on Him
  • 00:07:11.140 --> 00:07:13.210
  • Remember Yeshua said to Peter,
  • 00:07:15.070 --> 00:07:17.020
  • "Who do they say that I am?"
  • 00:07:17.020 --> 00:07:18.110
  • Peter said, "Some say John
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:20.030
  • the Baptist, others say
  • 00:07:20.030 --> 00:07:21.200
  • Elijah." But Jesus said,
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:23.040
  • And Peter said, "You are the
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:27.040
  • Messiah. You're the anointed
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:29.030
  • one. You're the Son of God."
  • 00:07:29.030 --> 00:07:30.290
  • response to that?
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:33.290
  • "Flesh and blood has not
  • 00:07:33.290 --> 00:07:36.220
  • revealed this to you, but My
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:38.190
  • Father who is in heaven."
  • 00:07:38.190 --> 00:07:41.140
  • telling Simon Peter,
  • 00:07:42.250 --> 00:07:44.040
  • "Listen, the revelation that
  • 00:07:44.040 --> 00:07:45.240
  • you have to know who I am,
  • 00:07:45.240 --> 00:07:47.170
  • you didn't figure
  • 00:07:47.170 --> 00:07:48.080
  • that out on your own."
  • 00:07:48.080 --> 00:07:49.140
  • He said, "You're blessed,
  • 00:07:49.140 --> 00:07:51.100
  • revealed that to you."
  • 00:07:52.010 --> 00:07:53.100
  • You see the only people that
  • 00:07:53.100 --> 00:07:54.170
  • get revelation are the
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:56.100
  • people that Father
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:57.000
  • God gives it to.
  • 00:07:57.000 --> 00:07:58.220
  • Jesus said, "All that have
  • 00:07:58.220 --> 00:07:59.290
  • heard and learned from the
  • 00:07:59.290 --> 00:08:01.210
  • Father come to Me."
  • 00:08:01.210 --> 00:08:02.230
  • to be in a place of
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:04.270
  • posturing your life, where
  • 00:08:04.270 --> 00:08:06.200
  • you realize how dependent we
  • 00:08:06.200 --> 00:08:08.160
  • are on God for His grace to
  • 00:08:08.160 --> 00:08:11.020
  • give us revelation and to
  • 00:08:11.020 --> 00:08:12.220
  • draw us to Himself; because
  • 00:08:12.220 --> 00:08:14.070
  • there's no other way in
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:15.070
  • except He draws us and
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:16.220
  • gives us revelation.
  • 00:08:16.220 --> 00:08:18.050
  • But then there's another
  • 00:08:18.050 --> 00:08:19.010
  • point I want to make here
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:21.120
  • and that is this, although she
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:22.140
  • says here, "Draw me after You."
  • 00:08:22.250 --> 00:08:25.250
  • The other point I want us to
  • 00:08:25.250 --> 00:08:27.020
  • understand, that's a paradox
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:29.130
  • to this and counter balances
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.130
  • make the choice to come.
  • 00:08:34.240 --> 00:08:36.160
  • On the one hand
  • 00:08:36.160 --> 00:08:37.280
  • we're dependent on God's
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:39.000
  • sovereignty to draw us, but
  • 00:08:39.000 --> 00:08:40.290
  • on the other hand
  • 00:08:40.290 --> 00:08:42.100
  • You see that's what's unique
  • 00:08:44.110 --> 00:08:46.020
  • about you and I.
  • 00:08:46.020 --> 00:08:47.200
  • Listen, the plants don't
  • 00:08:47.200 --> 00:08:48.290
  • have free will. The
  • 00:08:48.290 --> 00:08:50.290
  • mammals don't have free will.
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:53.230
  • Birds don't have free will.
  • 00:08:53.230 --> 00:08:56.060
  • Fish don't have free will.
  • 00:08:56.060 --> 00:08:58.060
  • They don't have the ability
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:08:59.120
  • in their mind to know the
  • 00:08:59.120 --> 00:09:00.250
  • difference between
  • 00:09:00.250 --> 00:09:01.190
  • right and wrong.
  • 00:09:01.190 --> 00:09:02.250
  • They don't have the ability
  • 00:09:02.250 --> 00:09:03.210
  • to think like you and I do,
  • 00:09:03.210 --> 00:09:05.130
  • that we're created in God's
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:06.160
  • image, to weigh the thoughts
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:08.210
  • and to make a choice.
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:09.260
  • You and I are uniquely
  • 00:09:09.260 --> 00:09:10.290
  • created in God's image and
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:12.230
  • one of the things, beloved
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:14.050
  • one, that makes you unique
  • 00:09:14.050 --> 00:09:15.250
  • is the fact that God has
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:17.000
  • given you a free will unlike
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.220
  • And this is also
  • 00:09:20.240 --> 00:09:21.160
  • interesting to note.
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:23.050
  • When you look at the first
  • 00:09:23.050 --> 00:09:24.160
  • two chapters of Genesis,
  • 00:09:24.160 --> 00:09:26.240
  • after everything that God
  • 00:09:26.240 --> 00:09:27.280
  • It says, "It was good."
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:32.200
  • God saw you know the
  • 00:09:32.200 --> 00:09:34.080
  • plants, it was good.
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:35.170
  • God saw the animals.
  • 00:09:35.170 --> 00:09:36.150
  • He said, 'It was good."
  • 00:09:36.150 --> 00:09:38.040
  • Everything God made in His
  • 00:09:38.040 --> 00:09:39.220
  • account of creation, after
  • 00:09:39.220 --> 00:09:41.150
  • He had made it, at the end
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:42.270
  • of that part of His creation
  • 00:09:42.270 --> 00:09:44.140
  • the Word of God says, "And
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:45.200
  • it was good."
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:47.020
  • The only time God doesn't
  • 00:09:47.020 --> 00:09:48.090
  • say it was good was after
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:50.220
  • He created man. Why?
  • 00:09:50.220 --> 00:09:53.000
  • Because the other things
  • 00:09:53.000 --> 00:09:54.070
  • that God created,
  • 00:09:54.070 --> 00:09:55.210
  • they were complete.
  • 00:09:55.210 --> 00:09:56.220
  • In other words, when God
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:09:57.140
  • created the plants they were
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:09:58.190
  • complete. It was done.
  • 00:09:58.190 --> 00:10:00.080
  • When God created the animals
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:01.130
  • it was complete.
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:02.100
  • It was done.
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.180
  • But when God created you and
  • 00:10:03.180 --> 00:10:04.190
  • I, it wasn't complete.
  • 00:10:04.190 --> 00:10:06.230
  • It only becomes complete as
  • 00:10:06.230 --> 00:10:08.170
  • you and I use our free will
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:11.120
  • to choose Him in order
  • 00:10:11.120 --> 00:10:12.280
  • for us to become
  • 00:10:12.280 --> 00:10:13.290
  • all that we can be.
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:15.260
  • And so there's this paradox
  • 00:10:15.260 --> 00:10:17.030
  • that God created us and He
  • 00:10:17.030 --> 00:10:18.250
  • has to draw us to Himself.
  • 00:10:18.250 --> 00:10:21.050
  • But the other part of it is
  • 00:10:21.050 --> 00:10:22.080
  • you and I have to choose
  • 00:10:22.080 --> 00:10:24.190
  • what His desire is.
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:25.270
  • And His desire is to have an
  • 00:10:25.270 --> 00:10:27.020
  • intimate relationship with
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:28.260
  • us that's beyond words
  • 00:10:28.260 --> 00:10:30.210
  • to even explain it.
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:31.290
  • But in order for that to
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:32.290
  • happen we have to choose Him
  • 00:10:33.060 --> 00:10:36.060
  • consistently, consciously,
  • 00:10:36.060 --> 00:10:38.230
  • every day for the rest of
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:40.090
  • our lives; using all of our
  • 00:10:40.090 --> 00:10:42.020
  • kavanah, all of our
  • 00:10:42.020 --> 00:10:43.100
  • focus for Him alone.
  • 00:10:43.100 --> 00:10:45.070
  • And then we come to a place
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:46.220
  • where we get to where God
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:47.160
  • has called us to be and it
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:48.260
  • is good. It's complete.
  • 00:10:48.260 --> 00:10:50.200
  • It's finished. And so
  • 00:10:50.200 --> 00:10:51.250
  • beloved ones, I want
  • 00:10:51.250 --> 00:10:53.140
  • you to understand you and I
  • 00:10:53.140 --> 00:10:54.270
  • in order to enter in to this
  • 00:10:54.270 --> 00:10:56.080
  • relationship, [] that
  • 00:10:56.080 --> 00:10:57.230
  • we're being called to, we
  • 00:10:57.230 --> 00:10:58.280
  • 00:11:00.280 --> 00:11:04.230
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:07.050
  • (river running)
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:11.270
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- Welcome to
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:12.170
  • today's God Moment. In this
  • 00:11:12.170 --> 00:11:14.090
  • you to a unique weekly
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:17.150
  • devotional that I put out
  • 00:11:17.150 --> 00:11:18.230
  • called "Seeds of Revelation."
  • 00:11:18.230 --> 00:11:20.180
  • Today I'm gonna be focusing
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:21.230
  • verse 16, then at the end I'll
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:25.240
  • tell you how you can receive
  • 00:11:25.240 --> 00:11:27.080
  • these weekly devotionals
  • 00:11:27.080 --> 00:11:28.100
  • each week. In the Song of
  • 00:11:28.100 --> 00:11:29.270
  • Songs chapter 2 verse 16,
  • 00:11:29.270 --> 00:11:32.110
  • the Shulammite bride, who's
  • 00:11:32.110 --> 00:11:33.290
  • a shadow of the church,
  • 00:11:33.290 --> 00:11:35.200
  • who's a shadow of all God's
  • 00:11:35.200 --> 00:11:36.290
  • people, cries out to the king,
  • 00:11:36.290 --> 00:11:39.180
  • and King Jesus, and she says,
  • 00:11:40.290 --> 00:11:43.060
  • mine. I am His and He is mine."
  • 00:11:46.090 --> 00:11:49.090
  • And what I think is so
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:50.100
  • powerful and beautiful
  • 00:11:50.100 --> 00:11:52.020
  • about this is that she is
  • 00:11:52.020 --> 00:11:53.210
  • completely identifying
  • 00:11:53.210 --> 00:11:56.020
  • with God to be the one that
  • 00:11:56.020 --> 00:11:57.200
  • determines in her own heart
  • 00:11:57.200 --> 00:11:59.120
  • and mind who she is.
  • 00:11:59.120 --> 00:12:01.030
  • In other words, let me
  • 00:12:01.030 --> 00:12:01.250
  • say it this way.
  • 00:12:01.250 --> 00:12:03.010
  • We get our identity by the
  • 00:12:03.010 --> 00:12:05.120
  • one that we identify with.
  • 00:12:05.120 --> 00:12:07.240
  • In other words, many children
  • 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:09.020
  • of course get their identity
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:10.290
  • from their parents, from
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:12.080
  • their father or their mother.
  • 00:12:12.080 --> 00:12:13.290
  • And this can be well and good.
  • 00:12:13.290 --> 00:12:15.130
  • But Jesus said that we must
  • 00:12:15.130 --> 00:12:17.030
  • love Him even more than we love
  • 00:12:17.030 --> 00:12:19.100
  • our father and mother. Why?
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:21.040
  • Because we need to identify
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:23.010
  • with Father God as the source
  • 00:12:23.010 --> 00:12:25.030
  • of understanding who we are
  • 00:12:25.030 --> 00:12:27.170
  • in order to fully enter into
  • 00:12:27.170 --> 00:12:29.000
  • He is and who we are.
  • 00:12:30.110 --> 00:12:32.210
  • Again she said, "I am His
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:34.290
  • and He is mine."
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:36.050
  • He was the source, God was
  • 00:12:36.050 --> 00:12:37.280
  • I want to encourage you today,
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:41.010
  • you're not a doctor, you're

  • not a housewife, you're not
  • 00:12:42.080 --> 00:12:43.230
  • an airline pilot, you're
  • 00:12:43.230 --> 00:12:45.270
  • not a nurse, you're not a
  • 00:12:45.270 --> 00:12:47.000
  • baker, whatever it is,
  • 00:12:47.000 --> 00:12:48.150
  • who you are is a son
  • 00:12:48.150 --> 00:12:50.120
  • or a daughter of God.

  • these weekly devotionals
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:13.140
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- The Bible
  • 00:13:19.280 --> 00:13:20.210
  • says that the entire world
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:21.280
  • The Bible tells us in the
  • 00:13:24.030 --> 00:13:24.240
  • book of Acts, "That in Him
  • 00:13:24.240 --> 00:13:27.070
  • we live and move
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:29.250
  • and have our being."
  • 00:13:29.250 --> 00:13:31.040
  • creation by His power, the
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:35.220
  • Word of God tells us.
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:37.010
  • If He would stop upholding
  • 00:13:37.010 --> 00:13:38.140
  • creation, everything would
  • 00:13:38.140 --> 00:13:40.060
  • just instantly go into total
  • 00:13:40.060 --> 00:13:41.200
  • He is upholding everything
  • 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:46.050
  • by His power. His entire
  • 00:13:46.050 --> 00:13:47.260
  • creation is in Him.
  • 00:13:47.260 --> 00:13:50.190
  • And yet even though you and
  • 00:13:50.190 --> 00:13:52.060
  • I are in Him, there's a
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:54.130
  • sense that there's a
  • 00:13:54.130 --> 00:13:55.120
  • separateness between He and
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:57.030
  • us, until we choose to
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:14:00.040
  • become unified with Him.
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:02.080
  • So we're in Him, because His
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:03.250
  • entire creation is held in
  • 00:14:03.250 --> 00:14:05.050
  • His power. His entire
  • 00:14:05.050 --> 00:14:06.160
  • creation is in Him.
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:08.110
  • You and I are in Him, but
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:10.180
  • He's calling us into unity
  • 00:14:10.180 --> 00:14:12.220
  • and union with Him and this
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:14.130
  • only happens as you and I
  • 00:14:14.130 --> 00:14:16.120
  • choose Him over the course
  • 00:14:16.120 --> 00:14:17.280
  • of our life, because
  • 00:14:17.280 --> 00:14:19.150
  • of our love for Him.
  • 00:14:19.150 --> 00:14:21.040
  • And this takes effort and
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:22.140
  • it takes work and it
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.170
  • takes sacrifice, it
  • 00:14:23.170 --> 00:14:24.200
  • takes denying self.
  • 00:14:24.200 --> 00:14:26.070
  • It takes making a decision
  • 00:14:26.070 --> 00:14:27.170
  • based on what's right,
  • 00:14:27.170 --> 00:14:28.270
  • rather than what we want to do.
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:31.050
  • As we keep on choosing Him,
  • 00:14:31.050 --> 00:14:32.170
  • we go from just being in
  • 00:14:32.170 --> 00:14:34.020
  • Him, because everything is
  • 00:14:34.020 --> 00:14:35.280
  • in Him and we come to a
  • 00:14:35.280 --> 00:14:36.280
  • place where we're in Him
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:38.120
  • in a whole new way.
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:39.110
  • We become unified with Him.
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:41.110
  • And so this is a deep mystery.
  • 00:14:41.110 --> 00:14:43.100
  • It's important for us to
  • 00:14:43.100 --> 00:14:44.080
  • understand that we're in
  • 00:14:44.080 --> 00:14:45.160
  • God, but there's a
  • 00:14:45.160 --> 00:14:46.220
  • us. He's calling us
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:49.120
  • into complete unity.
  • 00:14:49.120 --> 00:14:51.080
  • Even when we come into
  • 00:14:51.080 --> 00:14:52.070
  • this deep mystery, there's
  • 00:14:54.050 --> 00:14:55.230
  • still a separateness in the
  • 00:14:55.230 --> 00:14:57.090
  • sense, listen; I know this
  • 00:14:57.090 --> 00:15:00.080
  • is a deep thing, in the
  • 00:15:00.080 --> 00:15:02.040
  • sense that you and
  • 00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:03.270
  • I are individuals.
  • 00:15:03.270 --> 00:15:06.070
  • In other words, God is a person.
  • 00:15:06.070 --> 00:15:08.120
  • He created you and I in His
  • 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:10.070
  • own image, with free will.
  • 00:15:10.070 --> 00:15:12.210
  • And even though our destiny
  • 00:15:12.210 --> 00:15:14.200
  • is to become one with Him at
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:16.080
  • the marriage supper of the
  • 00:15:16.080 --> 00:15:17.000
  • lamb, there's still gonna be
  • 00:15:17.000 --> 00:15:18.110
  • a separateness between us.
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:19.260
  • Not in the sense of
  • 00:15:19.260 --> 00:15:20.220
  • separation and relationship,
  • 00:15:20.220 --> 00:15:22.210
  • but in sense of that God is
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:24.170
  • one person and He is unique
  • 00:15:24.170 --> 00:15:27.010
  • and you and I are
  • 00:15:27.010 --> 00:15:28.020
  • another person and we
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:29.100
  • are also unique.
  • 00:15:29.100 --> 00:15:30.250
  • In other words, God can't
  • 00:15:30.250 --> 00:15:32.170
  • have a love relationship
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:34.020
  • with a robot. We're
  • 00:15:34.020 --> 00:15:35.240
  • unique individuals with
  • 00:15:35.240 --> 00:15:37.020
  • a will that are unique
  • 00:15:37.020 --> 00:15:39.040
  • and there's that beauty of
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:40.160
  • knowing that we have a
  • 00:15:40.160 --> 00:15:41.120
  • unique personality.
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:43.090
  • And because we're different,
  • 00:15:43.090 --> 00:15:45.020
  • because God wanted us to be
  • 00:15:45.020 --> 00:15:46.070
  • different so that there
  • 00:15:46.070 --> 00:15:47.000
  • could be a real relationship.
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:49.090
  • In other words, let's take a
  • 00:15:49.090 --> 00:15:50.070
  • pause for a second.
  • 00:15:50.070 --> 00:15:51.290
  • Would you want your spouse
  • 00:15:51.290 --> 00:15:53.270
  • or your friend to
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:55.090
  • be exactly like you?
  • 00:15:55.090 --> 00:15:57.140
  • Would you want them to have
  • 00:15:57.140 --> 00:15:58.160
  • the same emotional
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:16:00.020
  • characteristic of you, so
  • 00:16:00.020 --> 00:16:01.110
  • that every sentence that
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:02.280
  • they said was exactly the
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:04.170
  • way that you said it, with
  • 00:16:04.170 --> 00:16:05.290
  • the same words and the same
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:07.060
  • emotional tone, that they
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:09.040
  • had no desires that
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:11.080
  • were unique to them?
  • 00:16:11.080 --> 00:16:12.230
  • No, you enjoy the fact that
  • 00:16:12.230 --> 00:16:14.170
  • different people are
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:16.030
  • different from you and
  • 00:16:16.030 --> 00:16:17.060
  • you're able to you know
  • 00:16:17.060 --> 00:16:17.280
  • because of those differences,
  • 00:16:17.280 --> 00:16:20.030
  • appreciate it, enjoy each other.
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:22.210
  • It's the same thing
  • 00:16:22.210 --> 00:16:23.110
  • between God and us.
  • 00:16:23.110 --> 00:16:24.190
  • He created us uniquely and
  • 00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:26.190
  • He gets pleasure out
  • 00:16:26.190 --> 00:16:27.160
  • of our uniqueness.
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:28.230
  • So, we'll always be separate
  • 00:16:28.230 --> 00:16:30.230
  • in the sense that we're
  • 00:16:30.230 --> 00:16:31.180
  • unique individuals and yet
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:33.110
  • we become unified in our
  • 00:16:33.110 --> 00:16:35.050
  • heart with Him, so that He's
  • 00:16:35.050 --> 00:16:37.070
  • in us and we're in Him; as
  • 00:16:37.070 --> 00:16:38.150
  • we choose Him and more and
  • 00:16:38.150 --> 00:16:40.040
  • more forge and build
  • 00:16:40.040 --> 00:16:41.240
  • that bond between us.
  • 00:16:41.240 --> 00:16:43.160
  • She's saying, "Draw me
  • 00:16:45.150 --> 00:16:46.130
  • after you." She wants
  • 00:16:46.130 --> 00:16:47.090
  • to come into His bosom.
  • 00:16:47.090 --> 00:16:48.160
  • We just got done saying that
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:49.170
  • in order for this
  • 00:16:49.170 --> 00:16:50.160
  • God has to draw us and we
  • 00:16:52.000 --> 00:16:53.110
  • should recognize that.
  • 00:16:53.110 --> 00:16:54.220
  • And then she continues on
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:56.010
  • and she says at the last
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:57.050
  • She said, "And let
  • 00:16:59.010 --> 00:17:00.090
  • us run together."
  • 00:17:00.130 --> 00:17:03.130
  • "Draw me after You, bring me
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:04.210
  • "And let us run together!"
  • 00:17:08.200 --> 00:17:11.200
  • What does this mean when she
  • 00:17:11.200 --> 00:17:12.120
  • says let us run together?
  • 00:17:12.120 --> 00:17:14.230
  • She wanted, listen, to
  • 00:17:14.230 --> 00:17:16.230
  • partner with her lover.
  • 00:17:16.230 --> 00:17:18.260
  • She wanted to partner with
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:19.240
  • the King. You and I
  • 00:17:19.240 --> 00:17:21.080
  • want to partner with God.
  • 00:17:21.080 --> 00:17:23.020
  • We want to partner with Hashem.
  • 00:17:23.020 --> 00:17:24.120
  • We want to partner with Him
  • 00:17:24.120 --> 00:17:26.020
  • in life and we want
  • 00:17:26.020 --> 00:17:27.020
  • to partner with Him
  • 00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:28.250
  • according to His mission.
  • 00:17:28.250 --> 00:17:30.080
  • She said, "Draw me to you."
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:32.000
  • She wanted to come over to
  • 00:17:32.000 --> 00:17:32.240
  • His team, right, to His side.
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:34.190
  • She wanted to
  • 00:17:34.190 --> 00:17:35.130
  • stand next to Him.
  • 00:17:35.130 --> 00:17:36.130
  • Bring me to yourself.
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:37.170
  • And she said, And let me
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:38.150
  • partner with you in life.
  • 00:17:38.150 --> 00:17:39.260
  • "Let us run together!"
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:42.050
  • And so the second part of
  • 00:17:42.050 --> 00:17:43.140
  • her prayer is, "I want to
  • 00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:45.030
  • partner with You in Your
  • 00:17:45.030 --> 00:17:47.050
  • mission in life."
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:49.270
  • Let me ask you a question,
  • 00:17:49.270 --> 00:17:51.280
  • Do you want to partner with
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:53.280
  • Jesus' purpose in this world?
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:56.280
  • You know Father sent Yeshua
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:58.130
  • into this world and gave Him
  • 00:17:58.130 --> 00:17:59.210
  • a mission, gave Him a purpose.
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:02.250
  • And what God is desiring
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:03.270
  • from His children is that we
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:05.220
  • will come to Jesus, listen
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:07.070
  • with Him in His purpose.
  • 00:18:09.080 --> 00:18:12.020
  • Jesus said, "As the Father
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:13.220
  • sent me, so also
  • 00:18:13.220 --> 00:18:15.150
  • now I send you."
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:17.250
  • Him in His purpose.
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:20.180
  • The Shulamite bride said,
  • 00:18:20.180 --> 00:18:21.290
  • "Let us run the race together."
  • 00:18:21.290 --> 00:18:24.000
  • She wanted a partner with
  • 00:18:24.000 --> 00:18:25.110
  • the King, with her bride, in
  • 00:18:25.110 --> 00:18:27.020
  • His purpose in life.
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:28.030
  • She wanted to be with Him
  • 00:18:28.030 --> 00:18:29.170
  • and what He was doing.
  • 00:18:29.170 --> 00:18:30.120
  • She wanted to be His
  • 00:18:30.120 --> 00:18:31.100
  • partner, His team mate.
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:33.180
  • And so Father God is calling
  • 00:18:33.180 --> 00:18:35.020
  • you and I, which is
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:36.070
  • expressed, by the heart of
  • 00:18:36.070 --> 00:18:37.280
  • the Shulamite lover here.
  • 00:18:37.280 --> 00:18:39.090
  • He wants you and I to have a
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:40.110
  • heart that we want to share
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:42.030
  • in His purpose in the world.
  • 00:18:42.030 --> 00:18:44.080
  • You see, you can't separate,
  • 00:18:44.080 --> 00:18:46.200
  • listen please, the love
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:48.130
  • of God from doing
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:49.260
  • Once again, we can't
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:53.120
  • separate loving God from
  • 00:18:53.120 --> 00:18:56.100
  • doing His work in the world.
  • 00:18:56.100 --> 00:18:58.030
  • I think unfortunately some
  • 00:18:58.030 --> 00:18:59.140
  • love God just because they
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:03.010
  • go to church and they raise
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:04.080
  • their hands when the worship
  • 00:19:04.080 --> 00:19:05.060
  • music is playing and they
  • 00:19:05.060 --> 00:19:06.280
  • feel good inside and they
  • 00:19:06.280 --> 00:19:08.120
  • really do feel love for God.
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:10.090
  • And I think that somehow
  • 00:19:10.090 --> 00:19:11.030
  • they've convinced themselves
  • 00:19:11.030 --> 00:19:12.120
  • that you know, they're
  • 00:19:12.120 --> 00:19:13.100
  • strong believers in this
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:14.250
  • world, but they're not ever
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:16.060
  • doing the work of
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:17.020
  • God in the world.
  • 00:19:17.020 --> 00:19:18.110
  • Jesus said what?
  • 00:19:19.170 --> 00:19:20.120
  • "You shall be My witnesses."
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:21.270
  • They're not lights on a hill.
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:23.170
  • Jesus said, "I want you to
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:24.090
  • be like lights on a hill
  • 00:19:24.090 --> 00:19:25.090
  • that people can see. They'll
  • 00:19:25.090 --> 00:19:26.180
  • They'll see your love for Me.
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:29.200
  • You see, you can't be a
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:30.250
  • great witness for the Lord
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:32.060
  • in the world without
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:33.080
  • verbally naming the name of
  • 00:19:33.080 --> 00:19:34.140
  • Jesus; because if you're
  • 00:19:34.140 --> 00:19:35.280
  • just a good person, but
  • 00:19:35.280 --> 00:19:37.280
  • don't ever mention Jesus
  • 00:19:37.280 --> 00:19:39.030
  • name in public, people might
  • 00:19:39.030 --> 00:19:40.250
  • just think you're a good,
  • 00:19:40.250 --> 00:19:41.210
  • because you're a good person.
  • 00:19:41.210 --> 00:19:43.290
  • You'll be drawing people
  • 00:19:43.290 --> 00:19:45.150
  • to yourself possibly,
  • 00:19:45.150 --> 00:19:47.010
  • rather than to Him.
  • 00:19:47.010 --> 00:19:48.220
  • So you can't separate loving
  • 00:19:48.220 --> 00:19:51.200
  • God from doing
  • 00:19:51.200 --> 00:19:53.140
  • the work of God.
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:55.050
  • She said, "Let us partner
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:56.100
  • together. Let us run
  • 00:19:56.100 --> 00:19:57.200
  • the race together."
  • 00:19:57.200 --> 00:19:58.250
  • And we have an assignment in
  • 00:19:58.250 --> 00:19:59.260
  • this world. The Lord said,
  • 00:19:59.260 --> 00:20:01.030
  • "You are My witnesses,
  • 00:20:01.030 --> 00:20:02.200
  • declares the Lord."
  • 00:20:02.200 --> 00:20:03.220
  • Jesus said, "You shall
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:04.190
  • receive power and
  • 00:20:04.190 --> 00:20:06.000
  • be My witnesses."
  • 00:20:06.000 --> 00:20:07.150
  • Jesus said, "I want you to
  • 00:20:07.150 --> 00:20:08.170
  • do good deeds in My name, so
  • 00:20:08.170 --> 00:20:10.110
  • that people will look up and
  • 00:20:10.110 --> 00:20:11.110
  • give their life to the Father."
  • 00:20:11.110 --> 00:20:13.110
  • At the end of Jesus' life
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:15.170
  • in John chapter 17,
  • 00:20:15.170 --> 00:20:18.140
  • Yeshua expressing His
  • 00:20:18.140 --> 00:20:19.150
  • love to the Father.
  • 00:20:19.150 --> 00:20:20.270
  • He talked about how much He
  • 00:20:20.270 --> 00:20:21.290
  • loved the Father, how
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:22.280
  • His heart was totally
  • 00:20:22.280 --> 00:20:23.250
  • given to the Father.
  • 00:20:23.250 --> 00:20:24.250
  • said, "I have completed the
  • 00:20:25.200 --> 00:20:28.200
  • work that You have
  • 00:20:28.200 --> 00:20:30.110
  • given me to do."
  • 00:20:30.110 --> 00:20:32.010
  • Father was connected to
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:36.040
  • doing the work the Father
  • 00:20:36.040 --> 00:20:37.110
  • gave Him to do.
  • 00:20:37.110 --> 00:20:38.250
  • And it needs to be the same,
  • 00:20:38.250 --> 00:20:39.290
  • church, with you and I.
  • 00:20:39.290 --> 00:20:41.120
  • We can't just love the Father.
  • 00:20:41.120 --> 00:20:43.180
  • We also have to do the work
  • 00:20:43.180 --> 00:20:45.180
  • He gave us to do. We have
  • 00:20:45.180 --> 00:20:47.080
  • to complete the mission.
  • 00:20:47.080 --> 00:20:49.080
  • We've got a purpose in this
  • 00:20:49.080 --> 00:20:50.010
  • world and our purpose in the
  • 00:20:50.010 --> 00:20:52.240
  • world is the same purpose
  • 00:20:52.240 --> 00:20:55.030
  • that we read about in the
  • 00:20:55.030 --> 00:20:56.080
  • Song of Songs chapter 1 verse 4.
  • 00:20:56.080 --> 00:20:58.150
  • Our purpose is two fold.
  • 00:20:58.150 --> 00:20:59.280
  • Number one, she said,
  • 00:20:59.280 --> 00:21:00.290
  • Our first purpose is to know
  • 00:21:02.270 --> 00:21:04.070
  • Him, to know God,
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:06.170
  • to experience God.
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:08.100
  • Our second purpose is
  • 00:21:08.100 --> 00:21:09.280
  • to make Him known.
  • 00:21:09.280 --> 00:21:11.080
  • She said, "Draw me after You.
  • 00:21:11.080 --> 00:21:12.210
  • I want to know You."
  • 00:21:12.210 --> 00:21:14.010
  • run the race with You."
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:16.260
  • Now what's the race of
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:17.200
  • God in the earth?
  • 00:21:17.200 --> 00:21:18.290
  • has been preached to the
  • 00:21:20.180 --> 00:21:22.010
  • whole world, then
  • 00:21:22.010 --> 00:21:23.150
  • the end shall come.
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:24.200
  • And so Father God
  • 00:21:26.060 --> 00:21:27.060
  • today, we love You.
  • 00:21:27.060 --> 00:21:29.010
  • We want to know You and we
  • 00:21:29.010 --> 00:21:30.110
  • want to make You known.
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:31.220
  • Father we ask You for mercy.
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:33.270
  • We ask You to come upon us
  • 00:21:33.270 --> 00:21:35.010
  • by the sanctifying power
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:36.160
  • of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:36.160 --> 00:21:37.230
  • We ask You to
  • 00:21:37.230 --> 00:21:38.120
  • circumcise our heart and
  • 00:21:38.120 --> 00:21:39.250
  • separate us unto Yourself.
  • 00:21:39.250 --> 00:21:41.180
  • Father give us the grace to
  • 00:21:41.180 --> 00:21:42.230
  • give ourselves to You
  • 00:21:42.230 --> 00:21:43.260
  • wholeheartedly and perfectly.
  • 00:21:43.260 --> 00:21:46.090
  • Father let the words of our
  • 00:21:46.090 --> 00:21:47.080
  • mouth and the meditation of
  • 00:21:47.080 --> 00:21:48.190
  • our heart be pleasing to You.
  • 00:21:48.190 --> 00:21:50.240
  • And Father God we
  • 00:21:50.240 --> 00:21:51.130
  • want to bear fruit.
  • 00:21:51.130 --> 00:21:52.230
  • We pray for power from the
  • 00:21:52.230 --> 00:21:53.280
  • Holy Spirit to bear fruit
  • 00:21:53.280 --> 00:21:55.090
  • for You on earth, that
  • 00:21:55.090 --> 00:21:56.200
  • people would see Yeshua in
  • 00:21:56.200 --> 00:21:58.050
  • us, that people would see
  • 00:21:58.050 --> 00:21:59.200
  • the good works, Father God,
  • 00:21:59.200 --> 00:22:01.060
  • of Jesus in us, coming
  • 00:22:01.060 --> 00:22:02.080
  • forth from the world;
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:03.150
  • that Your love would
  • 00:22:03.150 --> 00:22:04.100
  • radiate from our lives.
  • 00:22:04.100 --> 00:22:05.230
  • Father that we would have a
  • 00:22:05.230 --> 00:22:06.160
  • compassion for people, that
  • 00:22:06.160 --> 00:22:07.280
  • we would show the love of
  • 00:22:07.280 --> 00:22:08.290
  • God to the world.
  • 00:22:08.290 --> 00:22:10.090
  • Father we need You.
  • 00:22:10.090 --> 00:22:11.130
  • We love You. Father,
  • 00:22:11.130 --> 00:22:12.140
  • circumcise our hearts.
  • 00:22:12.140 --> 00:22:13.230
  • Burn, Father God, within us
  • 00:22:13.230 --> 00:22:15.110
  • by the fire of Your Spirit,
  • 00:22:15.110 --> 00:22:16.230
  • that our hearts would be
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:17.170
  • ablaze for You and for Your
  • 00:22:17.170 --> 00:22:19.090
  • glory. In Yeshua's name,
  • 00:22:19.090 --> 00:22:22.030
  • amen and amen.
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:25.010
  • Well my friends, I pray that
  • 00:22:25.010 --> 00:22:25.250

  • that I'm speaking.
  • 00:22:27.220 --> 00:22:29.020
  • Perhaps you want to take

  • notes if you're not already.
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:31.270
  • There's not a lot of
  • 00:22:31.270 --> 00:22:32.190
  • teaching on the Song of Songs.

  • Rabbi Schneider saying, I
  • 00:22:51.220 --> 00:22:53.050
  • RABBI SCHNEIDER- When a

  • givers, we have to break
  • 00:23:23.140 --> 00:23:25.030
  • through the resistance of
  • 00:23:25.030 --> 00:23:26.130
