  • ROBERT MORRIS: And He said, "The tongue can set on fire
  • 00:00:01.140 --> 00:00:03.060
  • an entire forest."
  • 00:00:03.090 --> 00:00:05.180
  • Have you ever said something and burned a forest down,
  • 00:00:05.210 --> 00:00:08.040
  • a forest of relationships?
  • 00:00:08.070 --> 00:00:09.270
  • Okay.
  • 00:00:10.000 --> 00:00:10.270
  • The tongue is like the rudder on a ship.
  • 00:00:11.000 --> 00:00:13.140
  • It turns a big ship, small member of the body.
  • 00:00:13.170 --> 00:00:15.230
  • 00:00:15.260 --> 00:00:30.260
  • ROBERT: So, we're in a series called,
  • 00:00:30.290 --> 00:00:32.150
  • "A Way in the Wilderness", and it comes out of Isaiah 35.
  • 00:00:32.180 --> 00:00:37.250
  • Isaiah 35, if you want to turn there,
  • 00:00:37.280 --> 00:00:39.180
  • or flip there, or whatever.
  • 00:00:39.210 --> 00:00:40.220
  • Isaiah 35 is a Messianic chapter in the Bible.
  • 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:45.270
  • You've heard of Messianic verses.
  • 00:00:46.000 --> 00:00:48.140
  • Those are verses in the Old Testament
  • 00:00:48.170 --> 00:00:50.220
  • that prophesy about the Messiah,
  • 00:00:50.250 --> 00:00:53.040
  • which we know is Jesus, and Isaiah 35 is an entire chapter.
  • 00:00:53.070 --> 00:00:58.030
  • There are Messianic chapters; Isaiah 53, obviously,
  • 00:00:58.060 --> 00:01:01.260
  • a Messianic chapter in the Old Testament,
  • 00:01:01.290 --> 00:01:05.120
  • So, Isaiah 35, we're going to start
  • 00:01:05.150 --> 00:01:07.090
  • at the last part of Verse 6,
  • 00:01:07.120 --> 00:01:10.190
  • because that's where this section starts.
  • 00:01:10.220 --> 00:01:12.090
  • It's the last part of Verse 6, the last sentence of Verse 6.
  • 00:01:12.120 --> 00:01:15.150
  • It says, "For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness."
  • 00:01:15.180 --> 00:01:20.020
  • Now, I want you to think about what you're reading.
  • 00:01:20.050 --> 00:01:22.280
  • Don't read over this -- waters in a wilderness.
  • 00:01:23.010 --> 00:01:27.190
  • "Waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
  • 00:01:27.220 --> 00:01:32.090
  • and streams in the desert."
  • 00:01:32.120 --> 00:01:35.270
  • You just don't think about streams in a desert.
  • 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:39.090
  • "The parched ground shall become a pool..."
  • 00:01:39.120 --> 00:01:42.180
  • -- now, I'm going to tell you in a moment,
  • 00:01:42.210 --> 00:01:44.020
  • there's a natural fulfillment
  • 00:01:44.050 --> 00:01:45.160
  • and a spiritual fulfillment to this.
  • 00:01:45.190 --> 00:01:47.260
  • "The parched ground shall become a pool,
  • 00:01:47.290 --> 00:01:50.120
  • and the thirsty land springs of water.
  • 00:01:50.150 --> 00:01:55.130
  • In the habitation of jackals," in other words,
  • 00:01:55.160 --> 00:01:57.160
  • a place where desert animals live,
  • 00:01:57.190 --> 00:02:00.160
  • "where each lay, there shall be grass with reeds and rushes."
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:05.160
  • That's because of the water, now, there are a whole bunch of
  • 00:02:05.190 --> 00:02:09.230
  • Messianic scriptures along this line,
  • 00:02:09.260 --> 00:02:12.290
  • and I just couldn't show them all,
  • 00:02:13.020 --> 00:02:13.260
  • but I'll show you one more.
  • 00:02:13.290 --> 00:02:15.150
  • Isaiah 41:18, "I will open rivers in desolate heights,
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:20.290
  • and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
  • 00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:24.000
  • I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:27.250
  • and the dry land springs of water."
  • 00:02:27.280 --> 00:02:30.150
  • All those things we just kind of read over,
  • 00:02:30.180 --> 00:02:32.150
  • but if you think about them, it's a miracle
  • 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:36.010
  • to have pools of waters, streams, rivers,
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:41.180
  • in a desert, in the wilderness.
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:44.070
  • So, there's a natural fulfillment,
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:46.130
  • when you look at Israel, it's a garden
  • 00:02:46.160 --> 00:02:48.280
  • in the middle of a desert.
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:50.110
  • Every nation around it is a desert,
  • 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:52.160
  • and yet it's a garden; God did this.
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:56.080
  • I was reading this, and let me just read you --
  • 00:02:56.110 --> 00:03:00.110
  • this is from a Jewish person who began to study Israel
  • 00:03:00.140 --> 00:03:04.250
  • and the water in Israel, and his name is Seth Siegel.
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:08.290
  • He's the author of, "Let There Be Water".
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:11.230
  • Just listen to this: he talks about when people come up to him
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:15.230
  • after his lectures, so that's where I'm picking it up.
  • 00:03:15.260 --> 00:03:18.080
  • He'll say, "What they want to learn,"
  • 00:03:18.110 --> 00:03:20.170
  • so he's talking about people who would come up
  • 00:03:20.200 --> 00:03:21.210
  • and ask him questions.
  • 00:03:21.240 --> 00:03:22.260
  • "What they want to learn," explains Siegel,
  • 00:03:22.290 --> 00:03:26.120
  • "is how a country," listen, "that is 60% desert,"
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:31.290
  • a country that is 60% desert, "and whose population
  • 00:03:32.020 --> 00:03:36.070
  • increased tenfold since 1948" --
  • 00:03:36.100 --> 00:03:41.050
  • the population of Israel, when Israel became a nation in 1948,
  • 00:03:41.080 --> 00:03:44.110
  • has increased tenfold, "not only has enough water for itself..."
  • 00:03:44.140 --> 00:03:49.110
  • -- this is what people want to know: how can Israel,
  • 00:03:49.140 --> 00:03:52.180
  • that's 60% desert and has increased tenfold
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:55.120
  • since it's become a nation, since 1948,
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:58.160
  • not only has enough water for itself,
  • 00:03:58.190 --> 00:04:02.070
  • but in fact has such a surplus that it exports water
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:07.120
  • to its neighbors?
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:10.010
  • In addition," Siegel writes, "Israel provides
  • 00:04:10.040 --> 00:04:12.290
  • large amounts of water from its own supplies
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:16.120
  • to both the Palestinians and the Jordanians,
  • 00:04:16.150 --> 00:04:20.190
  • and it exports," get this, "billions of dollars each year
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:26.110
  • of peppers, tomatoes, melons, and other
  • 00:04:26.140 --> 00:04:29.250
  • water-intensive produce."
  • 00:04:29.280 --> 00:04:36.140
  • Here's what I would like to say: would you explain that?
  • 00:04:36.170 --> 00:04:40.210
  • Explain how one small country can produce that much water,
  • 00:04:40.240 --> 00:04:49.050
  • even to supply their neighbors with water,
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:52.030
  • and produce billions of dollars of fruit that
  • 00:04:52.060 --> 00:04:57.010
  • is dependent on water much more than other fruit and vegetables?
  • 00:04:57.040 --> 00:05:02.220
  • So there's a natural fulfillment,
  • 00:05:02.250 --> 00:05:04.170
  • but there's a spiritual fulfillment as well,
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:07.090
  • that you don't have to live in a dry wilderness
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:09.050
  • once you get saved, and I'll explain why in a minute.
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:12.000
  • Isaiah 58:11, "You" -- "You shall be like a watered garden,
  • 00:05:12.030 --> 00:05:18.230
  • and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail."
  • 00:05:18.260 --> 00:05:22.230
  • Jeremiah 31:12, "Their souls shall be a well-watered garden."
  • 00:05:22.260 --> 00:05:29.100
  • So, there's a spiritual fulfillment as well,
  • 00:05:29.130 --> 00:05:31.100
  • or spiritual water.
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:32.170
  • Listen, God doesn't have any problem providing water
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:37.040
  • in the wilderness for His people.
  • 00:05:37.070 --> 00:05:41.030
  • Think about when they went through the wilderness,
  • 00:05:41.060 --> 00:05:42.210
  • how He provided water.
  • 00:05:42.240 --> 00:05:44.050
  • 1 Corinthians 10:4,
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:45.260
  • "For they drank of that spiritual Rock
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:50.100
  • that followed them,"
  • 00:05:50.130 --> 00:05:53.000
  • now I don't know what you thought when you saw
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:54.090
  • a rock following you, but that's what the Bible says,
  • 00:05:54.120 --> 00:06:01.190
  • "and that Rock was Christ."
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:06.210
  • So, when we talk about springs of water, rivers of water,
  • 00:06:06.240 --> 00:06:11.080
  • we've got to understand --
  • 00:06:11.110 --> 00:06:12.140
  • yes, God did something in the land of Israel
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:15.030
  • for His people in the area of natural water that
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:18.120
  • confuses scientists to this day, but He also does something
  • 00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:24.180
  • for you and for me in the area of spiritual water.
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:29.190
  • I don't have to live in a dry land,
  • 00:06:29.220 --> 00:06:33.130
  • even though I live in a fallen world.
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:36.000
  • I can live in a river of living water.
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:39.190
  • So, that's what I really want to focus on
  • 00:06:39.220 --> 00:06:41.170
  • is the spiritual fulfillment of what the Messiah brought
  • 00:06:41.200 --> 00:06:45.030
  • 2.000 years ago.
  • 00:06:45.060 --> 00:06:46.040
  • So, here's number one,
  • 00:06:46.070 --> 00:06:47.080
  • Jesus brought the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:06:47.110 --> 00:06:53.050
  • He didn't bring just a stream, He brought the river;
  • 00:06:53.080 --> 00:06:56.150
  • Jesus brought the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:06:56.180 --> 00:06:57.280
  • Now, before I go to a verse in John 7
  • 00:06:58.010 --> 00:07:01.050
  • that's very familiar to many of you,
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:03.280
  • very familiar to you, you've read this verse,
  • 00:07:04.010 --> 00:07:06.140
  • I need to give you a little background.
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.170
  • So, here's what happened at the Feast of Tabernacles
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:10.190
  • every year when they came to Jerusalem.
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:12.150
  • The last day was the day they prayed for rain,
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:16.130
  • and they prayed for the Messiah to come,
  • 00:07:16.160 --> 00:07:19.260
  • because they knew Isaiah, and Isaiah said,
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:22.230
  • when the Messiah comes, He is going to turn
  • 00:07:22.260 --> 00:07:25.010
  • the desert into a pool.
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:27.060
  • There's going to be plenty of water,
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:28.270
  • are you following me?
  • 00:07:29.000 --> 00:07:30.030
  • So they prayed for rain and for the Messiah to come.
  • 00:07:30.060 --> 00:07:33.050
  • So, they would fill up a flagon with water
  • 00:07:33.080 --> 00:07:34.270
  • from the Pool of Siloam.
  • 00:07:35.000 --> 00:07:36.160
  • They would play the shofar and they would go to the temple,
  • 00:07:36.190 --> 00:07:41.230
  • and they would pour it out as an offering before God,
  • 00:07:41.260 --> 00:07:45.080
  • and they would pray for rain and for the Messiah.
  • 00:07:45.110 --> 00:07:49.120
  • Two things they prayed for -- rain and the Messiah.
  • 00:07:49.150 --> 00:07:52.270
  • So, the day they're praying for water and the Messiah,
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:57.150
  • Jesus does this -- look, watch, John 7:37.
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:08:01.090
  • "On the last day," that's the day they did this,
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:05.020
  • "the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out."
  • 00:08:05.050 --> 00:08:09.020
  • He's at the temple now when they're doing this ceremony.
  • 00:08:09.050 --> 00:08:11.230
  • "And says, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:18.070
  • He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said,
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:21.160
  • out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."
  • 00:08:21.190 --> 00:08:25.050
  • You know what He's actually telling them?
  • 00:08:25.080 --> 00:08:26.150
  • "I'm the Messiah; You're praying for the Messiah, and I'm Him.
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:31.210
  • If you want water, I got it."
  • 00:08:31.240 --> 00:08:33.290
  • But then He's also telling them about the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:36.010
  • because it says, Verse 39, "This He spoke concerning the Spirit,
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:40.210
  • whom those believing in Him would receive;
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:43.200
  • for the Holy Spirit was not yet given,
  • 00:08:43.230 --> 00:08:48.050
  • because Jesus was not yet glorified."
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:51.100
  • Jesus came so that you could have a dynamic,
  • 00:08:51.130 --> 00:08:55.190
  • powerful river in you, flowing through you and out of you,
  • 00:08:55.220 --> 00:09:03.160
  • and His name is the Holy Spirit, and He's like a spring of water.
  • 00:09:03.190 --> 00:09:09.220
  • One of the reasons that Israel has so much water
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:13.000
  • are the springs.
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:14.040
  • Yes, the rain also in the mountains,
  • 00:09:14.070 --> 00:09:16.120
  • there are three springs at the northern part of Israel
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:20.080
  • that water the entire land, and when you get there,
  • 00:09:20.110 --> 00:09:23.050
  • it's like fire hydrants and they've been just
  • 00:09:23.080 --> 00:09:26.280
  • gushing for years and years and years and years.
  • 00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:29.250
  • It's amazing -- pools, and it's just springs,
  • 00:09:29.280 --> 00:09:33.200
  • and the water just coming up out of the ground,
  • 00:09:33.230 --> 00:09:35.270
  • and it flows 24 hours a day, and God just created this.
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:40.100
  • It's unbelievable, and, you know what a spring is.
  • 00:09:40.130 --> 00:09:42.140
  • A spring is just water just coming up out of the ground
  • 00:09:42.170 --> 00:09:45.000
  • for no reason it seems, but God just put it there.
  • 00:09:45.030 --> 00:09:48.180
  • Now, please let me just explain two things
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:51.150
  • about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:53.070
  • The Holy Spirit is the Greek word "Para-kletos",
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:58.160
  • "Para" means alongside, "Kletos" means to walk.
  • 00:09:58.190 --> 00:10:03.270
  • So, the Holy Spirit wants to walk alongside you.
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:08.140
  • I want you to think about that: would it be alright
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:11.040
  • if all through your day, every meeting you were in,
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:15.020
  • if the Holy Spirit just walked with you through your whole day?
  • 00:10:15.050 --> 00:10:18.280
  • Wouldn't that be great?
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:20.030
  • How many Christians today have a Holy Spirit
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:24.210
  • that's not for use, He's just for looks?
  • 00:10:24.240 --> 00:10:32.190
  • We have churches that He's for looks,
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:36.200
  • and we have other churches that He's not for use,
  • 00:10:36.230 --> 00:10:41.180
  • but He's for use.
  • 00:10:41.210 --> 00:10:42.270
  • So, the Holy Spirit, Jesus brought the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:10:43.000 --> 00:10:45.070
  • Here's point number two, the Holy Spirit is not weird.
  • 00:10:45.100 --> 00:10:49.140
  • [laughter]
  • 00:10:49.170 --> 00:10:53.190
  • He is not weird.
  • 00:10:53.220 --> 00:10:56.070
  • Let me give you the theological reason
  • 00:10:56.100 --> 00:10:58.010
  • why people think this -- because people are weird.
  • 00:10:58.040 --> 00:11:03.050
  • You have seen some weird people do some weird things,
  • 00:11:03.080 --> 00:11:08.030
  • and they say, "The Holy Spirit led me to do it."
  • 00:11:08.060 --> 00:11:11.210
  • No, they're just weird. [laughter]
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:15.250
  • They would be weird without the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:20.030
  • They did a poll, recently,
  • 00:11:20.060 --> 00:11:21.150
  • one-out-of-three people are weird.
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:26.130
  • I'll prove it to you, look at the person on your left.
  • 00:11:26.160 --> 00:11:31.050
  • Look at the person on your right.
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:34.070
  • If neither one of them are weird --
  • 00:11:34.100 --> 00:11:36.280
  • [laughter]
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:41.050
  • I'm telling you, that's not the Holy Spirit!
  • 00:11:41.080 --> 00:11:43.260
  • John 16:12, Jesus said, watch how amazing this verse is.
  • 00:11:43.290 --> 00:11:49.180
  • "I still have many things to say to you,"
  • 00:11:49.210 --> 00:11:54.090
  • and I don't know if you're catching this or not.
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:56.130
  • Jesus said, "I still have many things to say to you,"
  • 00:11:56.160 --> 00:11:59.280
  • many things, "but you cannot bear them now.
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:04.120
  • However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He,"
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:11.140
  • and I'll tell you why I'm underlining the word "He" later,
  • 00:12:11.170 --> 00:12:14.050
  • "He will guide you into all truth."
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:18.190
  • Jesus said I have more things to tell you,
  • 00:12:18.220 --> 00:12:21.140
  • but I'm not going to tell you, but He'll tell you.
  • 00:12:21.170 --> 00:12:24.180
  • The Holy Spirit will tell you when He comes.
  • 00:12:24.210 --> 00:12:27.240
  • "For He will not speak on His own authority,
  • 00:12:27.270 --> 00:12:31.030
  • but whatever He hears, He will speak."
  • 00:12:31.060 --> 00:12:34.100
  • That, right there, settles all debate
  • 00:12:34.130 --> 00:12:36.250
  • on whether the Holy Spirit speaks or not,
  • 00:12:36.280 --> 00:12:40.020
  • because Jesus Himself said He will speak!
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:44.050
  • He'll speak and He will tell you things to come.
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:47.040
  • All right, it says, "He will guide you into all truth."
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:49.120
  • How's he going to guide you into all truth?
  • 00:12:49.150 --> 00:12:51.070
  • Simple, because He knows all truth.
  • 00:12:51.100 --> 00:12:53.170
  • Why does He know all truth?
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:54.240
  • Simple, because He's God. He's God.
  • 00:12:54.270 --> 00:12:59.110
  • He's the third person of the Godhead;
  • 00:12:59.140 --> 00:13:04.020
  • the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit;
  • 00:13:04.050 --> 00:13:08.180
  • and He knows everything.
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:09.270
  • Now, think about this: You have someone living inside of you
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:16.100
  • Who knows everything there is to know about everything,
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:20.160
  • and He has committed Himself to be your teacher,
  • 00:13:20.190 --> 00:13:25.040
  • so why don't you ever talk to Him?
  • 00:13:25.070 --> 00:13:30.210
  • Why don't you ask Him how to raise kids?
  • 00:13:30.240 --> 00:13:33.260
  • He knows everything about everything.
  • 00:13:33.290 --> 00:13:36.280
  • Why don't you ask Him about what to do with your business,
  • 00:13:37.010 --> 00:13:39.090
  • or where to live, or where to move,
  • 00:13:39.120 --> 00:13:40.100
  • or whether to buy this or not?
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:42.010
  • He knows everything! I'm telling you,
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:44.130
  • some of you are educated people.
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:48.000
  • You're an idiot compared to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:51.090
  • I hate to tell you that, but if you haven't
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:53.050
  • figured it out yet,
  • 00:13:53.080 --> 00:13:54.150
  • He knows more than you, and He's committed Himself.
  • 00:13:54.180 --> 00:13:57.250
  • Here's the reason I think people don't talk to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:13:57.280 --> 00:14:02.050
  • I think that they don't see Him as a person,
  • 00:14:02.080 --> 00:14:06.040
  • and you will never develop a personal relationship
  • 00:14:06.070 --> 00:14:11.130
  • with the Holy Spirit
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:12.080
  • if you don't see Him as a person.
  • 00:14:12.110 --> 00:14:14.050
  • Again, think about the word "personal".
  • 00:14:14.080 --> 00:14:17.200
  • You develop a personal relationship with a person.
  • 00:14:17.230 --> 00:14:22.120
  • Well, here's what the Lord showed me.
  • 00:14:22.150 --> 00:14:23.280
  • The Holy Spirit is not His name, that's not His name,
  • 00:14:24.010 --> 00:14:28.100
  • That is not His name; that is His description.
  • 00:14:28.130 --> 00:14:34.030
  • The Father, that's His description,
  • 00:14:34.060 --> 00:14:37.020
  • the Son, the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:41.120
  • But, hopefully you got ahead of me.
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:42.260
  • I'm going to tell you what His name is.
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.080
  • Think about this: God, the Father,
  • 00:14:44.110 --> 00:14:48.100
  • God, the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:53.080
  • His name is God; that's His name.
  • 00:14:53.110 --> 00:14:58.150
  • His name is God and He lives inside of us.
  • 00:14:58.180 --> 00:15:04.020
  • And here's number three, let the river flow.
  • 00:15:04.050 --> 00:15:11.280
  • God said those who thirst come to Me,
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:16.090
  • and there's going to be a river flowing in you, let it flow.
  • 00:15:16.120 --> 00:15:19.270
  • Now, I understand I don't have time to go into this.
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:25.290
  • I wrote a book, years ago, called, "The God I Never Knew",
  • 00:15:26.020 --> 00:15:29.060
  • and I go into a prayer language, and I'm going to talk to you
  • 00:15:29.090 --> 00:15:32.030
  • a little bit about a prayer language.
  • 00:15:32.060 --> 00:15:34.080
  • I want to distinguish a little bit between
  • 00:15:34.110 --> 00:15:35.290
  • the gift of tongues and the prayer language.
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:39.180
  • So, I don't have time to cover this fully,
  • 00:15:39.210 --> 00:15:41.090
  • but I knew I was supposed to cover it.
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:44.160
  • James 3:7 says, "For every kind of beast and bird,
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:47.250
  • and reptile and creature of the sea,
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:50.130
  • is tamed and has been tamed by mankind."
  • 00:15:50.160 --> 00:15:56.100
  • Think about even lion tamers, dolphin trainers.
  • 00:15:56.130 --> 00:16:01.020
  • Every creature, He says, can be tamed.
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:04.130
  • "But no man can tame the tongue."
  • 00:16:04.160 --> 00:16:10.030
  • I don't have the time to read the whole passage.
  • 00:16:10.060 --> 00:16:11.220
  • He said, "The tongue can set on fire an entire forest."
  • 00:16:11.250 --> 00:16:16.240
  • Have you ever said something and burned the forest down,
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:19.130
  • the forest of relationships?
  • 00:16:19.160 --> 00:16:22.070
  • The tongue is like the rudder on a ship.
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:24.240
  • It turns a big ship, a small member of the body.
  • 00:16:24.270 --> 00:16:27.230
  • But, listen to this: "No man can tame the tongue."
  • 00:16:27.260 --> 00:16:30.210
  • Now, ladies, don't be thinking, "Well, I already knew
  • 00:16:30.240 --> 00:16:33.260
  • no man can do it, because I live with a man,
  • 00:16:33.290 --> 00:16:38.070
  • and there is no filter between his brain and his mouth."
  • 00:16:38.100 --> 00:16:41.260
  • Okay, when the Bible says "man", you're included.
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:46.200
  • You're not male, but you are man,
  • 00:16:46.230 --> 00:16:50.240
  • it said "mankind"; you're man.
  • 00:16:50.270 --> 00:16:53.150
  • By the way, let me just remind you
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:55.000
  • of your name -- woman, right?
  • 00:16:55.030 --> 00:17:00.230
  • You're mankind, so you're not male, but you are man.
  • 00:17:00.260 --> 00:17:04.090
  • When the Bible says, "No man can tame the tongue,"
  • 00:17:04.120 --> 00:17:06.190
  • that's you included.
  • 00:17:06.220 --> 00:17:08.060
  • Where you got the "wo-" from is
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:09.240
  • when Adam saw Eve naked -- whoa!
  • 00:17:09.270 --> 00:17:13.150
  • I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:15.250
  • [laughter and applause]
  • 00:17:15.280 --> 00:17:21.280
  • Alright, whoa-man alright, so anyway.
  • 00:17:22.010 --> 00:17:26.170
  • Okay, so what's the thing? No man can tame the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:17:26.200 --> 00:17:30.140
  • What's our hope then?
  • 00:17:30.170 --> 00:17:31.220
  • I mean, "No man can tame the tongue."
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:33.210
  • Well, our hope is no man can do it,
  • 00:17:33.240 --> 00:17:35.100
  • but the Holy Spirit can.
  • 00:17:35.130 --> 00:17:38.130
  • And isn't it amazing that there's a gift that requires you
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:44.180
  • to yield your tongue to the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:17:44.210 --> 00:17:50.110
  • but no person can tame it, but the Holy Spirit can tame it?
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:53.270
  • But, you can actually do -- by the way,
  • 00:17:54.000 --> 00:17:55.210
  • there's a gift of tongues and a grace of tongues,
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:59.010
  • and everybody can pray in tongues, everybody can.
  • 00:17:59.040 --> 00:18:02.020
  • It's not the gift, people tell me all the time,
  • 00:18:02.050 --> 00:18:03.190
  • "Well, Pastor, I don't have the gift.
  • 00:18:03.220 --> 00:18:06.020
  • And if God wants to give me the gift, I've told Him,
  • 00:18:06.050 --> 00:18:07.270
  • He can give me the gift."
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:10.120
  • I don't mean this wrong, but that's just such bad theology,
  • 00:18:10.150 --> 00:18:13.160
  • it's incredible, it's horrible theology.
  • 00:18:13.190 --> 00:18:16.110
  • That would be like walking by the offering box
  • 00:18:16.140 --> 00:18:19.070
  • and money, jump out of your pocket
  • 00:18:19.100 --> 00:18:20.140
  • into the offering box, and you say,
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:22.020
  • "Oh, look, I've got the gift of giving!"
  • 00:18:22.050 --> 00:18:24.080
  • [laughter]
  • 00:18:24.110 --> 00:18:27.060
  • I've been praying that if God wanted to give me that gift,
  • 00:18:27.090 --> 00:18:29.120
  • He would give me that gift.
  • 00:18:29.150 --> 00:18:31.140
  • And, no, you're going to have to write out a large check.
  • 00:18:31.170 --> 00:18:35.200
  • I mean, if we're going to talk about writing a check,
  • 00:18:35.230 --> 00:18:37.080
  • let's say large -- a large check
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:39.200
  • and put it in there yourself, right?
  • 00:18:39.230 --> 00:18:41.060
  • Okay, so you've got to cooperate with God,
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:43.080
  • but there's a difference in the gift of tongues
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:45.020
  • and the grace of tongues.
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:46.050
  • The gift of tongues is public,
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:47.190
  • and the grace of tongues is private.
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:49.280
  • It's a private prayer language.
  • 00:18:50.010 --> 00:18:52.020
  • And the gift of tongues can only be done when unbelievers
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:55.220
  • and uninformed people are not present.
  • 00:18:55.250 --> 00:18:58.170
  • That's 1 Corinthians 14, and, it has to be interpreted.
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:03.000
  • So we're not talking about the gift of tongues,
  • 00:19:03.030 --> 00:19:04.040
  • we're talking about the grace of tongues.
  • 00:19:04.070 --> 00:19:05.160
  • We're talking about a prayer language,
  • 00:19:05.190 --> 00:19:07.280
  • and every Christian can pray in a prayer language,
  • 00:19:08.010 --> 00:19:10.080
  • every Christian can.
  • 00:19:10.110 --> 00:19:11.170
  • And, by the way, if you say, "Well,
  • 00:19:11.200 --> 00:19:13.100
  • why would I want to pray in a prayer language?"
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:15.160
  • Well, I can give you just one of the reasons,
  • 00:19:15.190 --> 00:19:17.110
  • and I could list ten.
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:18.200
  • Actually, I have ten reasons, I don't have time to do it,
  • 00:19:18.230 --> 00:19:20.120
  • ten reasons why every Christian should pray
  • 00:19:20.150 --> 00:19:21.250
  • in a prayer language, but here's just one.
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:23.200
  • The Bible says it builds you up, that means it strengthens you.
  • 00:19:23.230 --> 00:19:28.070
  • So, there's probably no one here that would say to me,
  • 00:19:28.100 --> 00:19:30.050
  • "Pastor, I'm glad it does build you up,
  • 00:19:30.080 --> 00:19:32.250
  • but I just have all of the building up I can handle.
  • 00:19:32.280 --> 00:19:35.200
  • I just can't be built up any more."
  • 00:19:35.230 --> 00:19:39.030
  • All right, so here's why I want to show you
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:41.070
  • that it is voluntary.
  • 00:19:41.100 --> 00:19:42.210
  • It is voluntary to pray in tongues, all right?
  • 00:19:42.240 --> 00:19:45.130
  • 1 Corinthians 14:14, "For if I pray in a tongue,"
  • 00:19:45.160 --> 00:19:53.020
  • so you can pray in a tongue, and the greatest apostle
  • 00:19:53.050 --> 00:19:56.050
  • who ever lived prayed in a tongue.
  • 00:19:56.080 --> 00:19:58.160
  • "If I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays."
  • 00:19:58.190 --> 00:20:03.040
  • Wouldn't it be okay if you let your spirit pray?
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:05.270
  • "But my understanding is unfruitful."
  • 00:20:06.000 --> 00:20:08.270
  • The word "understanding" here, 95% of the time
  • 00:20:09.000 --> 00:20:12.140
  • when it translates, it's translated "mind".
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:15.110
  • In other words, my mind doesn't understand what I'm saying.
  • 00:20:15.140 --> 00:20:18.130
  • "What is the conclusion then?
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:20.150
  • I will pray with the Spirit,
  • 00:20:20.180 --> 00:20:24.010
  • and I will also pray with the understanding."
  • 00:20:24.040 --> 00:20:28.180
  • Now again, I don't have time to do a whole thing
  • 00:20:28.210 --> 00:20:30.160
  • on praying in the Spirit, but here's the greatest apostle
  • 00:20:30.190 --> 00:20:34.180
  • that ever lived, and one guy said to me,
  • 00:20:34.210 --> 00:20:37.030
  • "He said, 'If I pray in a tongue,'
  • 00:20:37.060 --> 00:20:38.240
  • there's no proof that he ever did."
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:40.010
  • I said, "Just read four verses down."
  • 00:20:40.040 --> 00:20:41.270
  • Verse 18, Paul said I pray in tongues more than all of you.
  • 00:20:42.000 --> 00:20:46.000
  • So, yes, there is proof.
  • 00:20:46.030 --> 00:20:48.110
  • But, "If I pray", okay, please hear me.
  • 00:20:48.140 --> 00:20:50.170
  • It's not uncontrollable, think about this.
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:55.180
  • Why would he give instructions about when and how
  • 00:20:55.210 --> 00:20:59.120
  • to pray or speak in tongues if it was uncontrollable?
  • 00:20:59.150 --> 00:21:02.260
  • It's controllable, you have a choice.
  • 00:21:02.290 --> 00:21:05.070
  • You can build yourself up in the Spirit
  • 00:21:05.100 --> 00:21:06.280
  • or you can not build yourself up in the Spirit.
  • 00:21:07.010 --> 00:21:09.180
  • One day, don't be afraid that if you yield to the Holy Spirit
  • 00:21:09.210 --> 00:21:13.110
  • you're going to be at Kroger's one day,
  • 00:21:13.140 --> 00:21:17.270
  • and you're going to grab the intercom
  • 00:21:18.000 --> 00:21:19.090
  • and start speaking in tongues.
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:22.130
  • It's not going to happen, you could have
  • 00:21:22.160 --> 00:21:24.130
  • the gift of teaching, but you can control it.
  • 00:21:24.160 --> 00:21:28.030
  • You can have the gift of serving,
  • 00:21:28.060 --> 00:21:29.020
  • you can control it, okay?
  • 00:21:29.050 --> 00:21:30.100
  • So, I just want you to know, "If I", I will.
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:34.280
  • "I will", that means it's a choice.
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:37.210
  • Here's what happens when I pray in the Spirit.
  • 00:21:37.240 --> 00:21:41.130
  • I get so much more sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:41.160 --> 00:21:46.270
  • I can see things that I couldn't see before.
  • 00:21:47.000 --> 00:21:51.100
  • I can say things, I can say,
  • 00:21:51.130 --> 00:21:52.260
  • "the river starts flowing through me."
  • 00:21:52.290 --> 00:21:56.080
  • So, I'll tell you one last thing, and then I'm done.
  • 00:21:56.110 --> 00:21:58.090
  • I was preaching one time and there was a man,
  • 00:21:58.120 --> 00:22:02.100
  • I found this out later, that had been out of church
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:04.180
  • for 12 years -- 12 years.
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:07.160
  • Raised in church, out of church for 12 years.
  • 00:22:07.190 --> 00:22:10.190
  • Something happened, he got bitter, and he left church.
  • 00:22:10.220 --> 00:22:13.040
  • It happens to a lot of people.
  • 00:22:13.070 --> 00:22:14.250
  • I'm not saying it's right, but it does happen
  • 00:22:14.280 --> 00:22:16.250
  • to a lot of people.
  • 00:22:16.280 --> 00:22:18.090
  • So, finally, he and his wife kept talking,
  • 00:22:18.120 --> 00:22:21.090
  • and finally he said, "Okay, I agree,
  • 00:22:21.120 --> 00:22:23.160
  • we need to go back to church."
  • 00:22:23.190 --> 00:22:24.260
  • On the way to church, he pulls over.
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:26.210
  • This was a big man, a big, big strong man, owned a company.
  • 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:30.200
  • He pulls over and he's on the verge of tears,
  • 00:22:30.230 --> 00:22:35.160
  • and his wife says, "Honey, what's wrong?"
  • 00:22:35.190 --> 00:22:38.040
  • And he said, "I'm the Prodigal Son.
  • 00:22:38.070 --> 00:22:41.280
  • My whole life, I've felt like the Prodigal Son,
  • 00:22:42.010 --> 00:22:46.150
  • and I'm afraid that when I go back to church today,
  • 00:22:46.180 --> 00:22:50.010
  • that God's going to ask me, "Where have you been
  • 00:22:50.040 --> 00:22:53.260
  • and what have you been doing?"
  • 00:22:53.290 --> 00:22:56.180
  • So, he comes to church that day.
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:59.030
  • I was preaching on the Prodigal Son.
  • 00:22:59.060 --> 00:23:05.140
  • He comes down to the altar to pray,
  • 00:23:05.170 --> 00:23:08.180
  • and the Holy Spirit speaks to me.
  • 00:23:08.210 --> 00:23:11.250
  • By the way, every time before I preach, I pray in the Spirit.
  • 00:23:11.280 --> 00:23:17.240
  • So if you want to know if you have a wild pastor, you do.
  • 00:23:17.270 --> 00:23:21.010
  • You don't have a weird one, but you have a wild one
  • 00:23:21.040 --> 00:23:23.130
  • who's wild about Jesus Christ, totally wild about Him.
  • 00:23:23.160 --> 00:23:28.160
  • [applause]
  • 00:23:28.190 --> 00:23:33.060
  • But it causes me to be sensitive to the Spirit.
  • 00:23:33.090 --> 00:23:35.140
  • It lets the river flow through me.
  • 00:23:35.170 --> 00:23:38.140
  • And so, I saw this guy come down and, boom,
  • 00:23:38.170 --> 00:23:40.120
  • I got this immediate thought, now, think about this.
  • 00:23:40.150 --> 00:23:43.100
  • I just walked over to him and I knelt down on the platform,
  • 00:23:43.130 --> 00:23:46.060
  • and I whispered in his ear and I said, "I know" --
  • 00:23:46.090 --> 00:23:51.100
  • No, I didn't -- I said, "The Father."
  • 00:23:51.130 --> 00:23:53.040
  • I said, "The Father wants me to tell you that He knows
  • 00:23:53.070 --> 00:23:56.130
  • that you see yourself as the Prodigal Son,
  • 00:23:56.160 --> 00:24:00.130
  • but the Father wanted me to tell you that He does not care
  • 00:24:00.160 --> 00:24:04.250
  • where you've been or what you've done,
  • 00:24:04.280 --> 00:24:07.140
  • He just wants His son back." [applause]
  • 00:24:07.170 --> 00:24:17.050
  • Now, that doesn't happen just to pastors,
  • 00:24:17.080 --> 00:24:20.210
  • that happens to Christians who let the river
  • 00:24:20.240 --> 00:24:24.290
  • flow through them, streams in the desert.
  • 00:24:25.020 --> 00:24:31.120
  • ROBERT: I just want to emphasize to you, one more time:
  • 00:24:32.060 --> 00:24:34.280
  • it doesn't matter where you've been,
  • 00:24:35.010 --> 00:24:37.020
  • it doesn't matter what you've done;
  • 00:24:37.050 --> 00:24:38.210
  • Jesus has already paid for it.
  • 00:24:38.240 --> 00:24:40.180
  • What matters is that you come to yourself,
  • 00:24:40.210 --> 00:24:43.220
  • just like the Prodigal Son did, and come home.
  • 00:24:43.250 --> 00:24:46.280
  • The Father wants you back, the Son wants you back,
  • 00:24:47.010 --> 00:24:50.280
  • and the Holy Spirit is here to draw you and guide you
  • 00:24:51.010 --> 00:24:55.090
  • back to the Father, gently.
  • 00:24:55.120 --> 00:24:58.030
  • Even if you're in a wilderness,
  • 00:24:58.060 --> 00:24:59.210
  • there's a stream in the wilderness,
  • 00:24:59.240 --> 00:25:02.150
  • and His name is the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:25:02.180 --> 00:25:05.110
  • Don't ever be afraid of Him.
  • 00:25:05.140 --> 00:25:06.240
  • He loves you and He wants to guide you, gently,
  • 00:25:06.270 --> 00:25:10.010
  • into all truth.
  • 00:25:10.040 --> 00:25:12.110
  • Hey, I appreciate you so much for watching,
  • 00:25:12.140 --> 00:25:14.170
  • and I want to encourage you, watch next time
  • 00:25:14.200 --> 00:25:17.000
  • because I'm gonna continue this series.
  • 00:25:17.030 --> 00:25:19.080
  • See you then.
  • 00:25:19.110 --> 00:25:20.110
  • ANNOUNCER: We're so glad you joined us for today's program
  • 00:25:21.270 --> 00:25:24.120
  • as Pastor Robert shares a message from his series,
  • 00:25:24.150 --> 00:25:27.070
  • "A Way in the Wilderness."
  • 00:25:27.100 --> 00:25:28.290
  • Taken from the book of Isaiah, Pastor Robert explains
  • 00:25:29.020 --> 00:25:31.280
  • how God's people forfeited His protection and blessings
  • 00:25:32.010 --> 00:25:35.180
  • when they forgot about Him and went their own way.
  • 00:25:35.210 --> 00:25:38.010
  • Isaiah prophesied the arrival of a Messiah
  • 00:25:38.040 --> 00:25:41.030
  • who would make a way in the wilderness,
  • 00:25:41.060 --> 00:25:43.050
  • and bring a dry, barren, and desolate land
  • 00:25:43.080 --> 00:25:45.240
  • back to life again.
  • 00:25:45.270 --> 00:25:47.120
  • Pastor Robert shows us how Jesus is the fulfillment
  • 00:25:47.150 --> 00:25:50.070
  • of Isaiah's prophecies about the coming Messiah;
  • 00:25:50.100 --> 00:25:52.290
  • and because we have placed our hope and trust in Jesus,
  • 00:25:53.020 --> 00:25:55.220
  • He transforms our wilderness into a lush garden
  • 00:25:55.250 --> 00:25:58.180
  • overflowing with abundance.

  • [Phone ringing]
  • 00:27:00.100 --> 00:27:01.130
  • NARRATOR: One day you wake up asking yourself.
