  • The Bible says that you are favored of the Lord,
  • 00:00:01.200 --> 00:00:05.010
  • and that it actually encompasses around you
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:07.280
  • and makes a shield around you.
  • 00:00:07.290 --> 00:00:09.270
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:00:09.280 --> 00:00:11.060
  • Stay tuned and I'll let you know.
  • 00:00:11.070 --> 00:00:12.280
  • (bright music)
  • 00:00:12.290 --> 00:00:14.280
  • RCTV 250 Message: 9-1-19 Airs: 10-27-19
  • 00:00:14.290 --> 00:00:28.200
  • The nature of favor is not so God shows up
  • 00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:32.140
  • in your life as Santa Claus passing out presents.
  • 00:00:32.150 --> 00:00:36.110
  • Favor has a reason behind it.
  • 00:00:37.070 --> 00:00:39.270
  • Like I said, to us it seems random,
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:43.130
  • but God has something in mind.
  • 00:00:43.140 --> 00:00:46.120
  • Favor usually comes to move you.
  • 00:00:46.130 --> 00:00:49.140
  • Let me talk about David.
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.050
  • Saul is Israel's King,
  • 00:00:57.120 --> 00:01:00.130
  • God never wanted Saul, the people did.
  • 00:01:01.220 --> 00:01:04.220
  • God wanted Israel to be a theocracy.
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:08.050
  • Theo means God, cracy means ruled.
  • 00:01:08.060 --> 00:01:11.080
  • He said you'll be my people, I'll be your God.
  • 00:01:11.090 --> 00:01:14.110
  • He wanted a God rule people,
  • 00:01:14.120 --> 00:01:15.280
  • but they didn't want to be different,
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:17.060
  • they wanted to be like all the other nations.
  • 00:01:17.070 --> 00:01:18.190
  • Give us a king, give us a king, give us a king,
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:20.270
  • so God -- you better watch what you're asking
  • 00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:21.260
  • for. God will give it to you.
  • 00:01:21.270 --> 00:01:24.010
  • The Bible says he did evil in the sight of the Lord,
  • 00:01:24.020 --> 00:01:26.130
  • and the Bible said that God even repented
  • 00:01:26.140 --> 00:01:28.020
  • in His heart that He allowed it.
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:29.210
  • Saul did evil.
  • 00:01:31.180 --> 00:01:32.230
  • So God speaks to the prophet Samuel.
  • 00:01:32.240 --> 00:01:35.010
  • In the Old Testament an anointing came
  • 00:01:35.020 --> 00:01:37.170
  • with a horn full of oil, physical horn, physical oil.
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:42.090
  • In the New Testament it's the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:45.010
  • We talked about being anointed for about 12 weeks.
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:48.140
  • So here God tells Samuel, Saul is no longer my guy.
  • 00:01:48.150 --> 00:01:53.140
  • Samuel was the one that anointed him King,
  • 00:01:55.150 --> 00:01:57.170
  • so he starts weeping.
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:01:59.050
  • And he weeps and he weeps and he weeps and he weeps,
  • 00:01:59.060 --> 00:02:02.070
  • and God finally has to come back and say,
  • 00:02:02.080 --> 00:02:04.040
  • how long are you going to mourn over what I've rejected?
  • 00:02:04.050 --> 00:02:07.100
  • How long are you going to cry
  • 00:02:09.110 --> 00:02:10.290
  • about the thing I've already moved on from?
  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:13.070
  • Let me mess with that a minute.
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:15.290
  • How much emotional energy are you going to continue to invest,
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:22.110
  • in the thing that God left a long time ago?
  • 00:02:23.170 --> 00:02:24.170
  • (congregation claps)
  • 00:02:24.180 --> 00:02:26.020
  • If you poured half the energy into what's next,
  • 00:02:26.030 --> 00:02:29.210
  • as you did regret, you could change your life in 24 hours.
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:34.110
  • And I believe God is using that same verse
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:37.100
  • to somebody under the sound of my voice today.
  • 00:02:37.110 --> 00:02:39.130
  • How long are you going to cry over the thing that I have exited?
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:43.010
  • I have already left that thing,
  • 00:02:43.020 --> 00:02:45.030
  • and there is too much in your next
  • 00:02:45.040 --> 00:02:47.040
  • for you to cry over your last?
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:49.070
  • And some of you need to embrace the fact
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:51.140
  • that God has caused some doors to close.
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:53.290
  • And the doors He closes, no man can open.
  • 00:02:54.000 --> 00:02:56.140
  • But when God closes them,
  • 00:02:56.150 --> 00:02:57.230
  • guess what He does on the other side?
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:02:59.140
  • He opens some doors that no man can shut.
  • 00:02:59.150 --> 00:03:02.090
  • Quit crying over shut doors.
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:04.180
  • They're not going to reopen for you.
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:06.200
  • But there is a door in front of you,
  • 00:03:06.210 --> 00:03:09.030
  • and if you would turn your energy on that,
  • 00:03:09.040 --> 00:03:11.140
  • I promise you your latter will be greater than your former.
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:14.280
  • Your tomorrow can be greater than your yesterday.
  • 00:03:14.290 --> 00:03:18.010
  • Focus not on what you had to walk away from,
  • 00:03:18.020 --> 00:03:21.050
  • focus on what you can walk into, hallelujah.
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:24.030
  • (congregation claps)
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:27.090
  • So God says I want you to go down to Jesse's house
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:33.000
  • for I have someone I want you to anoint king.
  • 00:03:33.010 --> 00:03:35.140
  • I've chosen him. He's the favored.
  • 00:03:35.150 --> 00:03:37.290
  • So he goes to Jesse's house
  • 00:03:39.100 --> 00:03:41.140
  • and has Jesse bring all of his sons into the house.
  • 00:03:41.150 --> 00:03:45.030
  • And even the prophetic sometimes can look on the outside.
  • 00:03:45.040 --> 00:03:48.120
  • He looks at them and he says you know,
  • 00:03:48.130 --> 00:03:49.260
  • here's Abinadad, he's tall, he has broad shoulders,
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:52.220
  • he looks like a king, maybe.
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:54.130
  • And God said no, I've not chosen him.
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:58.130
  • He goes through the whole line
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:00.030
  • and God says no, none of them are in.
  • 00:04:00.040 --> 00:04:03.070
  • They're not the one.
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:05.010
  • And Samuel is confused.
  • 00:04:05.020 --> 00:04:07.070
  • Samuel looks at Jesse and said,
  • 00:04:07.080 --> 00:04:08.210
  • is there somebody here that you don't have?
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:10.170
  • Do you have anymore sons?
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:12.170
  • Now I'm paraphrasing this, okay?
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:14.110
  • So Jesse looks at him and says yeah, I got one,
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:19.190
  • but surely not him.
  • 00:04:19.200 --> 00:04:22.100
  • Now there's some theological things
  • 00:04:24.140 --> 00:04:28.020
  • I don't have time to dig out
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:30.070
  • as to why David was not invited into the lineup.
  • 00:04:30.080 --> 00:04:33.170
  • David was outside in the back tending the sheep,
  • 00:04:34.230 --> 00:04:37.020
  • and was not even invited to the party.
  • 00:04:37.030 --> 00:04:39.020
  • But David was the psalmist who wrote most of the Psalms,
  • 00:04:40.140 --> 00:04:43.010
  • and he wrote this in Psalms; he said,
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:44.100
  • "In sin my mother did conceive me."
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:46.280
  • So there's some people that think, in the words
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:51.110
  • of South Carolinians, something squirrelly was going on.
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:54.000
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:04:54.010 --> 00:04:57.190
  • Can I just leave it there
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:04:58.270
  • or do I have to break down that into Greek?
  • 00:04:58.280 --> 00:05:00.250
  • There was something that happened
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:04.160
  • that caused him to be rejected.
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:06.290
  • He was never brought into the house.
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:10.120
  • A lot of people think that those things fed him all the way
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:13.020
  • into the downfall with Bathsheba,
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.290
  • that they were just deficiencies
  • 00:05:15.000 --> 00:05:16.140
  • and holes in him from the rejection of his father,
  • 00:05:16.150 --> 00:05:19.240
  • that the day the prophet comes looking for a king,
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:22.180
  • he don't even get allowed in the house,
  • 00:05:22.190 --> 00:05:25.010
  • and so he's out back. Samuel says get him.
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:28.190
  • And the Bible says that he was just a boy.
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:32.020
  • And all of a sudden the favor of God hit the young boy,
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:37.030
  • and God says that's him.
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:40.050
  • And when the favor comes,
  • 00:05:40.060 --> 00:05:42.060
  • see I could tie all these words together.
  • 00:05:42.070 --> 00:05:44.070
  • When the favor comes upon the chosen one, the oil moved.
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:47.260
  • (congregation applauds)
  • 00:05:47.270 --> 00:05:49.030
  • Favor, chosen, anointed. Let me say that again.
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:51.160
  • When the favor fell on the one God had chosen,
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:53.290
  • the oil begin to move. The anointing is the oil.
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:57.230
  • So the oil in the horn begin to move.
  • 00:05:57.240 --> 00:06:00.120
  • And Samuel walked up and begin to pour the horn of oil,
  • 00:06:00.130 --> 00:06:03.200
  • and the oil ran all the way down David's head,
  • 00:06:03.210 --> 00:06:06.130
  • and down his body because that was the favored son
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:09.280
  • out of everyone in Jesse's house.
  • 00:06:09.290 --> 00:06:12.070
  • Can I tell you something?
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:13.130
  • I just told you that favor cannot be earned.
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:15.190
  • But I will tell you something I've noticed,
  • 00:06:15.200 --> 00:06:17.170
  • favor didn't fall on the boys who was doing nothing,
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:20.150
  • favor fell on the boy who was out in the backyard busy.
  • 00:06:20.160 --> 00:06:23.190
  • Whenever you're busy putting your hands
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:25.280
  • to do whatever God has given your hands to do,
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:28.130
  • favor seems to somehow find faithful people.
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:31.100
  • I don't know what it is,
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:32.120
  • if you're lazy, if you're idle,
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:34.080
  • it don't visit your house much.
  • 00:06:34.090 --> 00:06:36.000
  • But the ones who did nothing never found favor.
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:38.250
  • But the one who was out back
  • 00:06:38.260 --> 00:06:40.070
  • doing the job nobody wanted to do
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:42.130
  • and making sure that nothing was going to hurt those sheep,
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:45.160
  • he was the one that found the favor.
  • 00:06:45.170 --> 00:06:47.230
  • Now the favor comes to move you, to shift you.
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:55.010
  • The anointing that he got was for a king.
  • 00:06:58.000 --> 00:07:00.190
  • So the Bible says -- go read it tonight, it's funny. It says,
  • 00:07:02.080 --> 00:07:05.160
  • he anointed him with the whole Horn of oil, and he left.
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:09.120
  • So here David is standing, greasy, with oil all over him,
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:15.180
  • and the Prophet walks out of the house,
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:18.240
  • and they send him back out to tend sheep.
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:28.000
  • The favor has come, he's the chosen one,
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:34.190
  • and the oil has moved.
  • 00:07:34.200 --> 00:07:37.010
  • But the problem is a lot of times, here we go,
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:41.170
  • people only recognize you
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:44.000
  • out of the season that God wants you to exit.
  • 00:07:44.010 --> 00:07:47.080
  • (congregation applause)
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:50.210
  • And a lot of times people will try
  • 00:07:50.220 --> 00:07:52.150
  • to keep previous seasons alive because
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:56.010
  • of the way people related to them during that season.
  • 00:07:56.020 --> 00:07:59.040
  • But what has happened now is his brothers resented him,
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:04.080
  • his father evidently resented him and rejected him,
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:07.080
  • didn't want him in the house. And what does God do, huh?
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:10.130
  • What is the nature of favor?
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:12.060
  • God didn't go out and say,
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:13.210
  • go out there to where the sheep is and anoint him,
  • 00:08:13.220 --> 00:08:16.040
  • He said bring him in the house,
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:18.090
  • make him stand there right in front
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:20.080
  • of every one of his brothers,
  • 00:08:20.090 --> 00:08:22.040
  • make him stand right in front of his daddy,
  • 00:08:22.050 --> 00:08:24.170
  • and let the favor run down his body
  • 00:08:24.180 --> 00:08:27.040
  • right in front of everybody.
  • 00:08:27.050 --> 00:08:28.290
  • I want you to know
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:30.050
  • the people that have tried to keep you down,
  • 00:08:30.060 --> 00:08:32.190
  • the people that's tried to keep you in the back of the line,
  • 00:08:32.200 --> 00:08:35.170
  • the people that have hated on your success,
  • 00:08:35.180 --> 00:08:38.110
  • God is going to make them stand there,
  • 00:08:38.120 --> 00:08:40.110
  • and watch you get your blessing right in front of them.
  • 00:08:40.120 --> 00:08:44.070
  • That's what David said, he prepares a table before me
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:47.200
  • in the presence of my enemies.
  • 00:08:47.210 --> 00:08:49.220
  • David said I didn't have to get them back,
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:51.280
  • I didn't have to get even with him,
  • 00:08:51.290 --> 00:08:53.240
  • God set a table and let me feast right in their face.
  • 00:08:53.250 --> 00:08:58.140
  • Somebody thank God that you ain't got to have vengeance,
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:09:02.010
  • God will turn around and have it for you.
  • 00:09:02.020 --> 00:09:04.160
  • (congregation applause)
  • 00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:06.010
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:09:06.020 --> 00:09:07.050
  • I mean God put him in the house,
  • 00:09:10.130 --> 00:09:13.050
  • and made him get it right there,
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:14.110
  • and made them watch it, made them watch it.
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:18.100
  • Now the favor moves you.
  • 00:09:19.250 --> 00:09:21.100
  • So now he's invited to the palace to play a harp,
  • 00:09:23.270 --> 00:09:28.270
  • he goes back home and now Israel goes to war,
  • 00:09:32.100 --> 00:09:36.250
  • and his brothers are called in to serve.
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:38.290
  • So his father sends him on a trip
  • 00:09:40.150 --> 00:09:43.220
  • to take cheese to his brothers who are in battle.
  • 00:09:43.230 --> 00:09:46.250
  • Cheese, cheese delivery services.
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:49.280
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:09:49.290 --> 00:09:53.030
  • When he gets there, there's this Philistine
  • 00:09:54.250 --> 00:09:56.290
  • in the valley mocking the God of Israel,
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:10:02.040
  • and all of the military soldiers are scared to death,
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:06.080
  • And so is Saul the king, nobody will touch him,
  • 00:10:06.090 --> 00:10:09.090
  • and he just mocks them and their God.
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:11.210
  • Remember now the oil has shifted.
  • 00:10:13.190 --> 00:10:15.150
  • They're trying to send you back out into the sheep,
  • 00:10:16.280 --> 00:10:19.190
  • but the oil is moving you.
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:21.000
  • Ooh that's good,
  • 00:10:22.190 --> 00:10:23.270
  • that's going to hit you on the way home.
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:25.230
  • He don't understand what's going on in his life,
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:31.100
  • but the favor of God that is on him
  • 00:10:31.110 --> 00:10:33.190
  • is now closing out one day and opening up another.
  • 00:10:33.200 --> 00:10:38.040
  • But his brothers only recognize him
  • 00:10:38.050 --> 00:10:40.150
  • for the day he was previously in.
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:42.140
  • So when he comes with the cheese they say,
  • 00:10:43.210 --> 00:10:45.130
  • what are you doing here?
  • 00:10:45.140 --> 00:10:47.110
  • We know how prideful you are.
  • 00:10:47.120 --> 00:10:48.200
  • In other words you're only here
  • 00:10:48.210 --> 00:10:50.200
  • to make a scene for yourself, why?
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:52.120
  • Because they know that he has the oil of a king,
  • 00:10:52.130 --> 00:10:54.270
  • but they want to keep him locked in yesterday
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:57.020
  • because people are all right
  • 00:10:58.230 --> 00:11:00.040
  • when God blesses you up to their level,
  • 00:11:00.050 --> 00:11:02.150
  • but they don't like it when God pushes you past them.
  • 00:11:02.160 --> 00:11:05.070
  • (congregation claps)
  • 00:11:05.080 --> 00:11:06.200
  • Oh I'm on something.
  • 00:11:06.210 --> 00:11:08.050
  • They're all right
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:10.270
  • when God raises your salary to their salary,
  • 00:11:10.280 --> 00:11:12.150
  • but when you come in with a bonus that throws you above
  • 00:11:12.160 --> 00:11:15.030
  • you don't want to say nothing about that.

  • 00:12:19.040 --> 00:12:20.180
  • So they come there and he looks at them and says,
  • 00:12:20.190 --> 00:12:23.040
  • who is this guy mocking our God?
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:25.180
  • He's a boy but the king is coming out of him
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:30.050
  • because he's got the favor of God on his life.
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:34.020
  • The king is coming up.
  • 00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:35.030
  • He says who is this uncircumcised Philistine
  • 00:12:36.140 --> 00:12:38.220
  • that he would mock the God of Israel?
  • 00:12:38.230 --> 00:12:40.270
  • Who is this guy?
  • 00:12:40.280 --> 00:12:42.040
  • Not taking notice that he's a giant, okay?
  • 00:12:42.050 --> 00:12:46.190
  • Because kings think differently.
  • 00:12:46.200 --> 00:12:49.000
  • So I know you all want to think David is just a good guy,
  • 00:12:52.080 --> 00:12:54.230
  • and everybody does good things out of their heart.
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:56.170
  • No, David wants to know what he's going to get.
  • 00:12:56.180 --> 00:12:59.080
  • He goes to the king and says,
  • 00:12:59.090 --> 00:13:00.200
  • what does the man get who kills this guy?
  • 00:13:00.210 --> 00:13:02.280
  • And then Saul said well,
  • 00:13:05.160 --> 00:13:08.100
  • the man who kills this Philistine for Israel,
  • 00:13:08.110 --> 00:13:10.180
  • he'll never pay taxes again.
  • 00:13:11.180 --> 00:13:13.210
  • In California that'll be huge incentive.
  • 00:13:13.220 --> 00:13:15.210
  • (congregation applause)
  • 00:13:15.220 --> 00:13:17.260
  • California, sign me up, I'll take him down today.
  • 00:13:17.270 --> 00:13:20.200
  • He says also whoever kills him gets my daughter.
  • 00:13:22.110 --> 00:13:26.010
  • And so David sitting there saying
  • 00:13:28.090 --> 00:13:30.050
  • I like the idea of not paying taxes and your daughter is fine
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:32.250
  • give me some armor and I'll go.
  • 00:13:32.260 --> 00:13:34.160
  • (congregation claps)
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:36.190
  • So he puts on Saul's armor, of course it's too big.
  • 00:13:36.200 --> 00:13:39.050
  • It don't work so he goes back to what works.
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:41.130
  • He goes to that sling and that rock.
  • 00:13:43.050 --> 00:13:44.290
  • And after he kills Goliath, and you know the story.
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:49.220
  • Let's go to the after party.
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:51.130
  • The soldiers put David on their shoulders,
  • 00:13:53.080 --> 00:13:55.200
  • and marched him through the downtown streets of Jerusalem.
  • 00:13:55.210 --> 00:13:58.130
  • So he's gone from the country to main street.
  • 00:13:58.140 --> 00:14:00.260
  • When that favor hit you, it moves fast.
  • 00:14:03.200 --> 00:14:06.060
  • It'll move you fast.
  • 00:14:06.070 --> 00:14:07.170
  • So here the boy is delivering cheese that morning,
  • 00:14:07.180 --> 00:14:10.060
  • and he's being harnessed down Main Street Jerusalem
  • 00:14:11.200 --> 00:14:15.220
  • that night and it says that women are hanging
  • 00:14:15.230 --> 00:14:18.030
  • over the balconies singing,
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:19.200
  • Saul has slain his thousands,
  • 00:14:19.210 --> 00:14:21.280
  • but David has slain his tens of thousands.
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:24.200
  • So the little boy who was delivering cheese that morning,
  • 00:14:26.010 --> 00:14:28.120
  • look at your neighbors and say favor happens fast.
  • 00:14:28.130 --> 00:14:31.220
  • The little boy delivering cheese that morning,
  • 00:14:31.230 --> 00:14:34.100
  • but the favor moved him into a different arena,
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:37.130
  • and in that different arena it shifted him,
  • 00:14:37.140 --> 00:14:39.280
  • and now he's gone from the background to the forefront,
  • 00:14:39.290 --> 00:14:42.290
  • maidens singing songs in his name.
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:46.250
  • And then he goes back to work at the palace.
  • 00:14:46.260 --> 00:14:49.240
  • And Saul who loved him for his ability to play the harp
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:55.130
  • and bring in peace, is now chucking spears
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:59.140
  • trying to pin his dead carcass to the wall.
  • 00:14:59.150 --> 00:15:03.130
  • Why?
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:04.080
  • Because I told you
  • 00:15:04.090 --> 00:15:05.150
  • that the favor of God tests relationships.
  • 00:15:05.160 --> 00:15:08.280
  • He was fine until the favor of God moved him
  • 00:15:10.060 --> 00:15:14.050
  • to a place in the ladies' heart that was above him.
  • 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:17.260
  • If they have never heard the song,
  • 00:15:17.270 --> 00:15:19.140
  • Saul has slain his thousands,
  • 00:15:19.150 --> 00:15:20.260
  • but David has slain his tens of thousands.
  • 00:15:20.270 --> 00:15:22.240
  • See, I told you everybody enjoys the concept of favor
  • 00:15:22.250 --> 00:15:26.210
  • until you start manifesting it.
  • 00:15:26.220 --> 00:15:28.170
  • Everybody was fine with Joseph having a coat of many colors
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:32.150
  • until he put the coat on.
  • 00:15:32.160 --> 00:15:34.060
  • When you start wearing your favor,
  • 00:15:34.070 --> 00:15:36.180
  • that's when everybody around you get to acting sideways, come on.
  • 00:15:36.190 --> 00:15:40.040
  • So David puts on his coat,
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:42.040
  • and then all of a sudden Saul's relationship changes.
  • 00:15:42.050 --> 00:15:45.010
  • Joseph puts on his coat,
  • 00:15:45.020 --> 00:15:46.290
  • his brothers hate him and threw him into a pit,
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:49.160
  • but you got to understand every time
  • 00:15:49.170 --> 00:15:51.140
  • the favor took Joseph to a low place,
  • 00:15:51.150 --> 00:15:54.130
  • God would take him and raise him back up to a higher place.
  • 00:15:54.140 --> 00:15:57.160
  • Why?
  • 00:15:57.170 --> 00:15:58.220
  • Because when you have the favor of God,
  • 00:15:58.230 --> 00:16:00.080
  • people can put you down but man can't keep you down
  • 00:16:00.090 --> 00:16:03.160
  • because the favor grabs you wherever they cast you,
  • 00:16:03.170 --> 00:16:06.170
  • and raises you back up.
  • 00:16:06.180 --> 00:16:08.070
  • So they threw him into a pit,
  • 00:16:08.080 --> 00:16:09.240
  • God had favor on him and raised him up.
  • 00:16:09.250 --> 00:16:11.280
  • They sold him as a slave, God took him and raised him up.
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:15.050
  • They put him in Potiphar's house,
  • 00:16:15.060 --> 00:16:16.210
  • Potiphar made him head of his house.
  • 00:16:16.220 --> 00:16:18.160
  • She accused him of rape then they put him back in prison,
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:21.170
  • he began interpreting dreams,
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:23.100
  • and then Pharaoh put him head of all Egypt.
  • 00:16:23.110 --> 00:16:26.030
  • If you have the favor of God,
  • 00:16:26.040 --> 00:16:28.010
  • you can't keep a good man down.
  • 00:16:28.020 --> 00:16:30.100
  • (congregation applause)
  • 00:16:30.110 --> 00:16:33.210
  • The favor comes, David gets moved into the arena
  • 00:16:36.040 --> 00:16:41.040
  • with Goliath, that's life-changing and elevating.
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:43.200
  • The favor comes, Joseph gets thrown into a pit,
  • 00:16:45.060 --> 00:16:48.210
  • are you noticing something?
  • 00:16:48.220 --> 00:16:50.020
  • Favor has to have a certain atmosphere
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:58.020
  • for its mechanics to kick in.
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:01.080
  • This is very simple but it's profound.
  • 00:17:04.110 --> 00:17:06.160
  • You don't need favor where you're favored.
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:10.020
  • (congregation applause)
  • 00:17:10.030 --> 00:17:13.130
  • If you're in an environment where everybody likes you,
  • 00:17:14.260 --> 00:17:17.170
  • you don't need favor.
  • 00:17:18.180 --> 00:17:19.280
  • So favor can move you into a whole other arena
  • 00:17:22.230 --> 00:17:27.230
  • because it needs that atmosphere to work.
  • 00:17:29.020 --> 00:17:32.080
  • The Bible says that when Moses said
  • 00:17:34.220 --> 00:17:37.070
  • let my people go, that Pharaoh hardened his heart.
  • 00:17:37.080 --> 00:17:41.230
  • Why did God let Pharaoh --
  • 00:17:41.240 --> 00:17:43.180
  • And later it says God hardened his heart.
  • 00:17:43.190 --> 00:17:46.230
  • Why?
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:48.220
  • Because the most favored sticks out more
  • 00:17:48.230 --> 00:17:52.250
  • when it is in an adverse environment.
  • 00:17:53.290 --> 00:17:55.280
  • And so you need to understand
  • 00:17:55.290 --> 00:17:57.210
  • when I'm up here preaching the favor of God is coming,
  • 00:17:57.220 --> 00:18:00.150
  • there is one part of it that brings the clap,
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:03.260
  • but there's another part of it that brings
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:06.030
  • brings the giant.
  • 00:18:10.140 --> 00:18:11.120
  • But if God's favored you,
  • 00:18:13.170 --> 00:18:15.070
  • the favor that puts you in front of the giant,
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:17.100
  • is also the favor that takes the giant down.
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:19.100
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:18:19.110 --> 00:18:20.050
  • It's the same favor.
  • 00:18:20.060 --> 00:18:21.060
  • And so many times when God brings
  • 00:18:23.230 --> 00:18:28.190
  • His favor to shift and move your life
  • 00:18:28.200 --> 00:18:31.270
  • so that you can move deeper into purpose and potential,
  • 00:18:31.280 --> 00:18:35.070
  • people don't understand, people don't understand.
  • 00:18:36.260 --> 00:18:41.050
  • I'll close with this illustration. Go ahead
  • 00:18:43.080 --> 00:18:44.250
  • and play something if you would Brandon.
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:46.260
  • Stay with me right here.
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:49.190
  • I like to use the story of Jesus and John the Baptist,
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:53.150
  • that's one of the most intriguing relationships
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:55.130
  • in the Bible to me.
  • 00:18:55.140 --> 00:18:56.130
  • You got to understand Jesus
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:18:59.190
  • and John the Baptist were cousins.
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:01.090
  • Not only were they blood related by family, earthly family,
  • 00:19:04.000 --> 00:19:08.230
  • but John the Baptist was the guy God was using,
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:14.230
  • and John the Baptist wasn't the one,
  • 00:19:14.240 --> 00:19:16.240
  • but he was going to announce the one.
  • 00:19:16.250 --> 00:19:18.250
  • So John the Baptist was preaching get ready,
  • 00:19:19.290 --> 00:19:21.140
  • get ready, get ready, get ready.
  • 00:19:21.150 --> 00:19:23.030
  • I'm not him, but I'm preaching for you to get ready
  • 00:19:25.100 --> 00:19:28.150
  • for the one who's about to come, talking about Jesus.
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:31.000
  • Jesus, we don't hear anything from 12 to 30.
  • 00:19:32.040 --> 00:19:35.160
  • During that period John the Baptist is bringing --
  • 00:19:37.050 --> 00:19:39.260
  • the Bible says he lived in the wilderness
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:42.010
  • and ate locusts and wild honey.
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.260
  • People are leaving the city and running into the wilderness
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:46.210
  • to hear him he's so powerful.
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:48.170
  • So John the Baptist is well known
  • 00:19:50.030 --> 00:19:52.100
  • and he's got all the crowds, Jesus is a nobody,
  • 00:19:52.110 --> 00:19:55.100
  • and then Jesus walks into one of his crusades,
  • 00:19:57.200 --> 00:20:00.130
  • and John stops and says,
  • 00:20:00.140 --> 00:20:02.080
  • behold that's who I've been talking about,
  • 00:20:03.130 --> 00:20:07.010
  • the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world.
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:09.240
  • And Jesus enters the picture at age 30.
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:13.100
  • John baptizes him, I want you to catch this now,
  • 00:20:14.250 --> 00:20:18.100
  • pulls Him out of the water, the clouds roll back,
  • 00:20:18.110 --> 00:20:22.070
  • a voice comes out of heaven this is my son.
  • 00:20:24.010 --> 00:20:27.050
  • You like my God voice?
  • 00:20:27.060 --> 00:20:28.040
  • This is my son.
  • 00:20:28.050 --> 00:20:29.200
  • How many have ever saw the Old Ten Commandments movie
  • 00:20:32.270 --> 00:20:36.120
  • Charlton Heston you ever seen it?
  • 00:20:36.130 --> 00:20:37.210
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:20:37.220 --> 00:20:38.160
  • Let my people go.
  • 00:20:38.170 --> 00:20:40.140
  • I always laughed when I saw that scene.
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:43.250
  • Let my, you know he is with big chest and flowing hair
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:46.290
  • let my, Moses was 80 when he said that.
  • 00:20:47.000 --> 00:20:49.190
  • 80, he didn't let my people, he does like, let them go.
  • 00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:55.030
  • (congregation laughs)
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:58.080
  • So God speaks this is my son,
  • 00:21:00.220 --> 00:21:03.060
  • the Bible says that the Holy Spirit is dispensed from heaven
  • 00:21:03.070 --> 00:21:06.130
  • in bodily form like a dove. I mean a pretty convincing scene,
  • 00:21:06.140 --> 00:21:11.100
  • but now things are shifting, why?
  • 00:21:13.130 --> 00:21:16.060
  • Because God has favored His son,
  • 00:21:16.070 --> 00:21:20.250
  • and Jesus grew in stature and wisdom and stature,
  • 00:21:22.080 --> 00:21:26.010
  • and in favor. This is the day of His son now,
  • 00:21:26.020 --> 00:21:29.120
  • it's no longer John's day.
  • 00:21:29.130 --> 00:21:30.250
  • So John ends up in prison and Jesus has got all the crowds.
  • 00:21:33.080 --> 00:21:37.080
  • So John is in prison and says to his disciples, he says,
  • 00:21:38.200 --> 00:21:43.100
  • go ask Jesus is he the one or do I look for another?
  • 00:21:43.110 --> 00:21:48.050
  • Dude you pointed him out.
  • 00:21:53.120 --> 00:21:56.170
  • I mean you saw heaven open,
  • 00:21:58.160 --> 00:21:59.270
  • you saw a dove, like a ghostly looking dove,
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:02.170
  • you saw, you were there, you told us who he was.
  • 00:22:03.230 --> 00:22:08.050
  • It's bad when you in such a place
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:10.230
  • you don't even believe your own prophecies.
  • 00:22:10.240 --> 00:22:12.260
  • He said are you the one doing it?
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:18.160
  • And Jesus said you go tell John the lame walk,
  • 00:22:18.170 --> 00:22:20.220
  • the blind see, the deaf hear,
  • 00:22:20.230 --> 00:22:22.060
  • and you know that list that Jesus names everybody just shout
  • 00:22:22.070 --> 00:22:26.220
  • but there's a comma,
  • 00:22:26.230 --> 00:22:28.040
  • and there's one no preacher ever talks about,
  • 00:22:28.050 --> 00:22:29.110
  • he said and tell John ooh this good.
  • 00:22:29.120 --> 00:22:32.150
  • He said tell John, blessed is he
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:38.040
  • who is not offended because of me.
  • 00:22:38.050 --> 00:22:40.140
  • (congregation claps)
  • 00:22:41.230 --> 00:22:44.250
  • He says because my life has moved
  • 00:22:46.140 --> 00:22:49.070
  • and I cannot relate to you out of a previous season
  • 00:22:50.200 --> 00:22:53.040
  • when I had nothing to do.
  • 00:22:53.050 --> 00:22:54.130
  • And because you still see me like back
  • 00:22:55.220 --> 00:22:57.260
  • in the day when we were cousins
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:22:59.080
  • and I was helping my daddy build a bench
  • 00:22:59.090 --> 00:23:01.110
  • because you still see me that way,
  • 00:23:01.120 --> 00:23:03.150
  • you don't understand the day of favor has dawned on my life,
  • 00:23:03.160 --> 00:23:06.210
  • and I'm in a different place now,
  • 00:23:06.220 --> 00:23:08.160
  • and blessed is he who is not offended of me
  • 00:23:08.170 --> 00:23:11.090
  • because you want me to come make a personal visit
  • 00:23:11.100 --> 00:23:14.080
  • and I'm not coming.
  • 00:23:15.050 --> 00:23:16.050
  • Favor is a very powerful thing,
  • 00:23:18.140 --> 00:23:21.000
  • there's nothing quite like it,
  • 00:23:21.010 --> 00:23:22.160
  • but it's very difficult to manage
  • 00:23:23.190 --> 00:23:25.130
  • because it does mess with relationships.
  • 00:23:26.230 --> 00:23:29.020
  • But I'm believing God, I'm believing God
  • 00:23:30.060 --> 00:23:34.130
  • that you're going to have the courage.
  • 00:23:34.140 --> 00:23:36.170
  • I believe favor is coming upon this house I'm telling you,
  • 00:23:36.180 --> 00:23:39.180
  • I believe favor is coming,
  • 00:23:39.190 --> 00:23:40.270
  • I don't believe we've seen anything.
  • 00:23:40.280 --> 00:23:42.250
  • This ain't even favor yet,
  • 00:23:42.260 --> 00:23:44.140
  • this is God just giving us appetizers,
  • 00:23:44.150 --> 00:23:47.130
  • but when it comes I'm believing God to give you the maturity
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:53.240
  • to handle the shifting and the moving and the maneuvering
  • 00:23:53.250 --> 00:23:57.050
  • that comes with it.
  • 00:23:57.060 --> 00:23:58.200
  • Do you believe God's going to give you the grace you need,
  • 00:23:58.210 --> 00:24:00.190
  • to be able to handle the favor when it comes?
  • 00:24:00.200 --> 00:24:02.220
  • Stand up all over this building and raise your hands
  • 00:24:02.230 --> 00:24:05.070
  • if you say I'm believing I'm going to have the grace I need
  • 00:24:05.080 --> 00:24:08.220
  • to manage the favor, hallelujah.
  • 00:24:08.230 --> 00:24:11.150
  • We believe it God, we believe it, we believe it.
  • 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:14.000
  • (bright music)
  • 00:24:15.060 --> 00:24:17.240
  • - I hope that you've been enjoying these messages.
  • 00:24:45.160 --> 00:24:47.080
  • You know this whole topic of distinction
  • 00:24:47.090 --> 00:24:49.180
  • is something's been precious to me because
  • 00:24:49.190 --> 00:24:52.030
  • I do believe when God calls us He calls us to be a separate
  • 00:24:52.040 --> 00:24:55.150
  • and distinct people not to blend but to stick out,
  • 00:24:55.160 --> 00:24:58.220
  • to be viewed, to be studied and for people to want
  • 00:24:58.230 --> 00:25:01.280
  • what it is we have on the inside of us.
  • 00:25:01.290 --> 00:25:04.050
  • I hope that you've enjoyed it,
  • 00:25:04.060 --> 00:25:05.060
  • I know I've enjoyed teaching it.
  • 00:25:05.070 --> 00:25:06.210
  • I want to get now into the time
  • 00:25:06.220 --> 00:25:08.080
  • where I just do the thank yous.
  • 00:25:08.090 --> 00:25:09.270
  • You know that we're viewer supported,
  • 00:25:11.060 --> 00:25:13.010
  • we're listener supported,
  • 00:25:13.020 --> 00:25:14.150
  • I say every week almost you noticed a coco ad didn't come on
  • 00:25:14.160 --> 00:25:18.220
  • we weren't selling cell phones,
  • 00:25:18.230 --> 00:25:20.070
  • and we didn't try to get you to go through Amazon,
  • 00:25:20.080 --> 00:25:22.070
  • we didn't do it, why?
  • 00:25:22.080 --> 00:25:23.190
  • We have a whole program because
  • 00:25:23.200 --> 00:25:25.240
  • we're dependent on people like you who believed in us
  • 00:25:25.250 --> 00:25:28.290
  • to give, to invest, to sow seed believing that God,
  • 00:25:29.000 --> 00:25:32.220
  • if you make sure that His bills are taken care of,
  • 00:25:32.230 --> 00:25:35.120
  • He'll turn back around,
  • 00:25:35.130 --> 00:25:36.190
  • and make sure that your needs are met.
  • 00:25:36.200 --> 00:25:38.090
  • The Bible says the good that you make happen for others,
  • 00:25:38.100 --> 00:25:40.230
  • God will make happen for you.
  • 00:25:40.240 --> 00:25:42.230
  • I really believe that the greatest way
  • 00:25:42.240 --> 00:25:44.110
  • I can get God involved in my life,
  • 00:25:44.120 --> 00:25:46.180
  • is I can look at somebody else's life and make it happen,
  • 00:25:46.190 --> 00:25:49.250
  • and when I do God turns around
  • 00:25:49.260 --> 00:25:51.280
  • and blesses me because I was interested
  • 00:25:51.290 --> 00:25:54.210
  • in investing in someone else's dream.
  • 00:25:54.220 --> 00:25:57.010
  • We have the dream here of reaching the whole world
  • 00:25:57.020 --> 00:25:59.130
  • with Jesus Christ and his message.
  • 00:25:59.140 --> 00:26:01.280
  • We now are doing that this goes almost globally,
  • 00:26:01.290 --> 00:26:05.090
  • but now our next venture is to take it to a place
  • 00:26:05.100 --> 00:26:08.130
  • where now we're taking it to the globe
  • 00:26:08.140 --> 00:26:09.290
  • in their known language, would you help us?
  • 00:26:10.000 --> 00:26:12.180
  • I'm asking you to continue giving
