  • I want to take you on a journey the next few minutes
  • 00:00:03.170 --> 00:00:05.200
  • to show you just how powerful the heart of a man is.
  • 00:00:05.210 --> 00:00:09.200
  • I'll see you in second.
  • 00:00:09.210 --> 00:00:11.080
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:00:11.090 --> 00:00:12.080
  • RCTV 251 Message: 9-8-19 Airs: 11-3-19
  • 00:00:12.090 --> 00:00:22.100
  • RCTV 251 Message: 9-8-19 Airs: 11-3-19

  • 00:00:22.110 --> 00:00:27.090
  • Mark 4.
  • 00:00:27.100 --> 00:00:28.200
  • You're going to hear the music a moment.
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:32.060
  • I always like them to play music,
  • 00:00:32.070 --> 00:00:33.230
  • it's just preference, while I read the word.
  • 00:00:33.240 --> 00:00:36.100
  • I think it brings a special emphasis to it.
  • 00:00:36.110 --> 00:00:38.230
  • But it's going to take me a little longer to get through this,
  • 00:00:38.240 --> 00:00:41.230
  • because you're getting in my passion.
  • 00:00:43.020 --> 00:00:46.090
  • I told you during the offering,
  • 00:00:47.070 --> 00:00:48.230
  • that Jesus is a king.
  • 00:00:50.090 --> 00:00:52.160
  • Not a religious guy, He's a king,
  • 00:00:54.050 --> 00:00:56.030
  • and He brought a kingdom,
  • 00:00:57.090 --> 00:00:58.240
  • He brought a kingdom.
  • 00:01:00.100 --> 00:01:01.130
  • If you don't know much about the Christian faith,
  • 00:01:03.070 --> 00:01:05.180
  • you can go in your Bible to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John,
  • 00:01:05.190 --> 00:01:08.280
  • and those who were with Him have penned down the life
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:12.080
  • and the teachings of Jesus.
  • 00:01:12.090 --> 00:01:14.230
  • In most Bibles, they're written in red.
  • 00:01:14.240 --> 00:01:16.220
  • And you will find that Jesus had this obsession,
  • 00:01:18.110 --> 00:01:22.120
  • this is very important now,
  • 00:01:23.250 --> 00:01:25.060
  • and He kept saying the kingdom of heaven is like,
  • 00:01:26.190 --> 00:01:30.010
  • the kingdom of heaven is like,
  • 00:01:30.020 --> 00:01:31.240
  • the kingdom of heaven is like.
  • 00:01:31.250 --> 00:01:33.290
  • Those of you that just got saved,
  • 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:36.040
  • do you know that getting saved is not the end?
  • 00:01:36.050 --> 00:01:38.230
  • Getting saved is the means to the end.
  • 00:01:38.240 --> 00:01:40.290
  • Because Jesus said, "No one can see the kingdom
  • 00:01:41.000 --> 00:01:43.070
  • "unless he be born again."
  • 00:01:43.080 --> 00:01:44.210
  • So Jesus said in John 10, He said, "I'm the door."
  • 00:01:46.150 --> 00:01:50.020
  • If I come to where you live,
  • 00:01:51.100 --> 00:01:52.180
  • please don't make me just stand at the door,
  • 00:01:52.190 --> 00:01:55.180
  • invite me in the house.
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:01:56.260
  • Jesus in John 10, He said, "I'm the door."
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:02:00.180
  • He said, "I'm the way you get in."
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:02.200
  • You can't get in this kingdom unless you come through me.
  • 00:02:04.030 --> 00:02:06.170
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:02:08.230 --> 00:02:10.070
  • By the way, I'm just telling it straight out of the Bible.
  • 00:02:10.080 --> 00:02:13.010
  • Okay?
  • 00:02:13.020 --> 00:02:13.270
  • And this kingdom is how you live in the earth,
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:19.250
  • but access heaven.
  • 00:02:20.250 --> 00:02:22.120
  • It's not a religion,
  • 00:02:24.080 --> 00:02:25.230
  • it's not a code of behavior and conduct.
  • 00:02:25.240 --> 00:02:27.290
  • It is a people who live a heavenly life
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:33.170
  • though they're in the earth.
  • 00:02:33.180 --> 00:02:35.000
  • And Jesus would say it's like this;
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:38.070
  • and it's like this, because He was trying to give concepts
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:42.170
  • to which people could grab that truth.
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:44.240
  • Well, Mark 4 is the first thing that Jesus said
  • 00:02:46.060 --> 00:02:50.200
  • out of the gate when He started telling us
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:53.000
  • what the kingdom of heaven is like.
  • 00:02:53.010 --> 00:02:55.130
  • Okay?
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:56.080
  • This is the foundational teaching
  • 00:02:57.100 --> 00:02:59.070
  • upon everything that Jesus said.
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:02.060
  • I want to read most of this to you today.
  • 00:03:03.110 --> 00:03:05.120
  • Don't disengage while I'm reading it.
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:07.020
  • Take your smartphone, your laptop,
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:09.020
  • however you get there,
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:10.080
  • just make sure you read through with me.
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:11.290
  • If you don't have those, it will be on the screen for you.
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:15.020
  • So Jesus is talking to a crowd.
  • 00:03:15.030 --> 00:03:17.160
  • He's got the crowd,
  • 00:03:17.170 --> 00:03:19.080
  • and He's got His 12 disciples.
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:21.120
  • His 12 disciples are listening to Him teach to the crowd.
  • 00:03:21.130 --> 00:03:25.090
  • Ready? I'm going to read.
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:27.000
  • Verse 3, let's start there.
  • 00:03:27.010 --> 00:03:28.130
  • "Listen!
  • 00:03:28.140 --> 00:03:29.110
  • "Behold, a sower went out to sow."
  • 00:03:30.170 --> 00:03:34.040
  • First thing He says about the kingdom,
  • 00:03:34.050 --> 00:03:36.060
  • agriculture,
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:38.220
  • a seed,
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:41.230
  • a sower.
  • 00:03:41.240 --> 00:03:43.090
  • "A sower went out to sow.
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:44.290
  • "And it happened that he sowed some fell by the wayside,
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:48.250
  • "the birds of the air came and devoured it.
  • 00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:51.190
  • "Some fell on stony ground."
  • 00:03:51.200 --> 00:03:53.040
  • This is the second kind of ground,
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:55.030
  • "where it did not have much earth
  • 00:03:55.040 --> 00:03:56.140
  • "and immediately it sprang up
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:58.000
  • "because it had no depth of earth,
  • 00:03:58.010 --> 00:03:59.200
  • "but we when the sun was up, it's scorched
  • 00:03:59.210 --> 00:04:02.200
  • "because it had no root and it withered away.
  • 00:04:02.210 --> 00:04:04.290
  • "Some seed fell among thorns,"
  • 00:04:05.260 --> 00:04:07.140
  • third type of ground.
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:09.050
  • "The thorns grew up and choked it and it yielded no crop.
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:12.250
  • "But the other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop
  • 00:04:12.260 --> 00:04:16.100
  • "that spring up and increased, some produce 30 fold,
  • 00:04:16.110 --> 00:04:19.040
  • "some 60 and some 100.
  • 00:04:19.050 --> 00:04:21.040
  • "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:23.070
  • What does He say that for?
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:24.150
  • Everybody there is listening to Him,
  • 00:04:24.160 --> 00:04:26.080
  • but He knows everybody is not going to embrace what He's saying.
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:29.090
  • Notice He says, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear,"
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:33.100
  • after He said there's four different kind of hearers.
  • 00:04:33.110 --> 00:04:35.290
  • According to this word,
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:40.010
  • I'm going preach today
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:42.210
  • and one out of every four of you are going do something with it.
  • 00:04:42.220 --> 00:04:45.220
  • According to that, I'm going to bat 25% today.
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:52.140
  • The Bible tells me when I take the seed,
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:56.150
  • the word, and I scatter it,
  • 00:04:56.160 --> 00:04:58.280
  • that I got a 25% chance of it producing.
  • 00:04:58.290 --> 00:05:02.130
  • I want you to tell you neighbor, say
  • 00:05:02.140 --> 00:05:03.210
  • I'm determined to be good ground.
  • 00:05:03.220 --> 00:05:05.110
  • Tell them I am determined.
  • 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:06.240
  • (congregation chatting among each other)
  • 00:05:06.250 --> 00:05:08.010
  • Now watch, roll with me here, roll with me.
  • 00:05:08.020 --> 00:05:10.140
  • I'm a teacher, I love to teach.
  • 00:05:11.130 --> 00:05:13.170
  • Now, when He was alone,
  • 00:05:13.180 --> 00:05:14.270
  • in other words, He got away from the crowd,
  • 00:05:14.280 --> 00:05:17.080
  • and He went back to the 12 disciples.
  • 00:05:17.090 --> 00:05:19.080
  • When He was alone, those around Him with the 12
  • 00:05:19.090 --> 00:05:21.230
  • asked Him about the parable.
  • 00:05:21.240 --> 00:05:23.010
  • And He said,
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:24.030
  • "To you, it has been given
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:27.160
  • "to know
  • 00:05:27.170 --> 00:05:29.120
  • "the mystery of the kingdom of God."
  • 00:05:29.130 --> 00:05:32.130
  • He said For millenniums heaven has been closed.
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:40.080
  • "And today, it has been given to you 12
  • 00:05:42.250 --> 00:05:46.110
  • "to learn how to live in the earth, but access heaven."
  • 00:05:47.290 --> 00:05:51.220
  • Heaven knows no ability to exhausted resources.
  • 00:05:53.100 --> 00:05:57.160
  • Heaven knows no lack.
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:05:59.070
  • Heaven can not been diminished.
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:01.100
  • And He says, "I'm going to show you how you can live here
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:06.010
  • "and I'm going to unlock the mystery,
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:07.220
  • "you can access heaven and live like a heaven in the earth."
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:11.270
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:06:11.280 --> 00:06:13.100
  • But look what He said.
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:15.050
  • People don't like this,
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:16.240
  • I'm going to see how many claps I get when I read this next verse.
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:18.280
  • "To you it's been given to know,
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:20.070
  • "but to those who are on the outside,
  • 00:06:20.080 --> 00:06:22.070
  • "all things come in parables."
  • 00:06:22.080 --> 00:06:24.110
  • He said, "To the crowd, I'm going to talk in code."
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:29.090
  • You know why?
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:32.180
  • He says, "I don't want them to know."
  • 00:06:32.190 --> 00:06:33.290
  • He said, "They don't want me."
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:38.050
  • He said, "You 12 left everything.
  • 00:06:40.190 --> 00:06:43.010
  • "You left your wives, you left your family,
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:45.030
  • "you left your careers, you left your jobs."
  • 00:06:45.040 --> 00:06:47.120
  • He said, "I'll tell you any mystery of the kingdom."
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:50.080
  • He said, "This crowd, he said they're loaves and fishes."
  • 00:06:50.090 --> 00:06:53.200
  • He said, "they show up when I'm feeding the hungry
  • 00:06:53.210 --> 00:06:55.210
  • "and when I'm healing people."
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:06:57.080
  • He said, "They don't love me, they love what I can do."
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:00.280
  • He said, "And I don't take my pearls
  • 00:07:03.060 --> 00:07:04.270
  • "and cast it before swine."
  • 00:07:04.280 --> 00:07:06.220
  • He said, "I'm going to talk to the crowd,
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:11.030
  • "but I'm going to put it behind a curtain."
  • 00:07:11.040 --> 00:07:13.040
  • He said, "But I'm going to get you by yourself
  • 00:07:14.290 --> 00:07:16.240
  • "and let you pull back the curtain and see
  • 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:19.200
  • "what's behind the curtain."
  • 00:07:19.210 --> 00:07:20.290
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:07:21.000 --> 00:07:21.270
  • Does that make anybody excited?
  • 00:07:21.280 --> 00:07:23.110
  • In other words, you're getting in on God's secrets today.
  • 00:07:23.120 --> 00:07:26.250
  • Man, this is good stuff.
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.230
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:31.180
  • Can I keep reading?
  • 00:07:31.190 --> 00:07:32.170
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:07:32.180 --> 00:07:34.020
  • So He said, "To those, all things are in parables."
  • 00:07:34.030 --> 00:07:36.140
  • I know we don't like this, but I got to preach it.
  • 00:07:36.150 --> 00:07:39.200
  • So now already,
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:42.040
  • you take all the people that are saved
  • 00:07:42.050 --> 00:07:44.040
  • and there's already a us and a them.
  • 00:07:44.050 --> 00:07:47.120
  • There's the casual,
  • 00:07:49.180 --> 00:07:51.020
  • and then there's a seeker.
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:54.000
  • Seek ye first the kingdom and his righteousness
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:59.100
  • and all these things will be added unto you.
  • 00:07:59.110 --> 00:08:02.050
  • We spend most of our time praying about things.
  • 00:08:02.060 --> 00:08:04.230
  • Jesus said, "If you pray about the kingdom,
  • 00:08:04.240 --> 00:08:06.120
  • "the things are in it."
  • 00:08:06.130 --> 00:08:07.230
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:09.110
  • Can I tell you something?
  • 00:08:09.120 --> 00:08:10.200
  • The more I learn about the kingdom,
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:12.050
  • the less I pray about stuff.
  • 00:08:12.060 --> 00:08:13.240
  • Because the stuff is in the kingdom.
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:20.110
  • So He said, "Don't seek stuff,"
  • 00:08:20.120 --> 00:08:21.250
  • He said, "Seek the kingdom and the stuff is a byproduct."
  • 00:08:21.260 --> 00:08:24.220
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:28.260
  • I'm just reading it to you.
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.070
  • Are you interested?
  • 00:08:31.180 --> 00:08:32.110
  • Wave at me.
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:33.140
  • If you are interested, can I go on?
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:34.130
  • I love this stuff.
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:35.190
  • Okay, verse 13.
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:37.010
  • He said, "Do you not understand this parable?
  • 00:08:37.020 --> 00:08:39.250
  • "How then will you not understand all parables?"
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:42.060
  • He said, "We're beginning kingdom algebra."
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:44.270
  • He said, "If you don't get this,"
  • 00:08:46.180 --> 00:08:49.070
  • He said, "Everything else I teach you will not make sense."
  • 00:08:49.080 --> 00:08:52.200
  • He said this to be --
  • 00:08:53.190 --> 00:08:54.220
  • How many of you remember algebra class?
  • 00:08:54.230 --> 00:08:56.140
  • If you miss what they taught the first month,
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:58.260
  • you might as well put your head on your desk
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:01.100
  • and go to sleep.
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:03.120
  • Because the whole rest of the year is nothing but expanding
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:06.080
  • on what you learned at the beginning.
  • 00:09:06.090 --> 00:09:08.050
  • So Jesus is saying, "All right, this thing is going to build.
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:12.280
  • "But this right here is the pillar that holds it all up."
  • 00:09:12.290 --> 00:09:17.140
  • Look what He says right here.
  • 00:09:17.150 --> 00:09:18.280
  • Now He's going to pull back the curtain and expose the parable.
  • 00:09:20.120 --> 00:09:23.180
  • "The sower sows the word."
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:26.290
  • All right, we found out what the seed is.
  • 00:09:27.000 --> 00:09:29.060
  • It's word.
  • 00:09:29.070 --> 00:09:30.010
  • Somebody say word.
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:31.000
  • - [Congregation] Word.
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:32.100
  • - "And these are the ones by the wayside."
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:34.040
  • First type of ground.
  • 00:09:34.050 --> 00:09:35.270
  • "These are the place that when the word is sown,
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:39.010
  • "they hear it and Satan comes immediately
  • 00:09:39.020 --> 00:09:41.190
  • "and takes away the word that's sown in their hearts."
  • 00:09:41.200 --> 00:09:44.220
  • "These likewise," number two,
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:48.160
  • "Are the ones sown on stony ground.
  • 00:09:48.170 --> 00:09:50.160
  • "When they hear the word
  • 00:09:50.170 --> 00:09:51.220
  • "immediately they receive it with gladness
  • 00:09:51.230 --> 00:09:53.140
  • "but they have no root in themselves
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:55.240
  • "and endure only for a time.
  • 00:09:55.250 --> 00:09:57.130
  • "Afterward when tribulation or persecution arises
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:10:00.080
  • "for the word's sake, immediately they stumble."
  • 00:10:00.090 --> 00:10:03.100
  • So these are people that they are in
  • 00:10:03.110 --> 00:10:05.190
  • as long as everything is going well.
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:08.000
  • But the minute things turn on them,
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:12.040
  • they disappear, you don't see them at church no more.
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:14.250
  • I'm preaching so good today.
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:16.190
  • I'm going to run around the building, run, buy my CD,
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:19.100
  • play it all the way home.
  • 00:10:19.110 --> 00:10:20.180
  • Verse 19, the third type of ground.
  • 00:10:23.180 --> 00:10:27.150
  • "Now these are the ones that fell among thorns,
  • 00:10:27.160 --> 00:10:31.030
  • "the ones who hear the word, and the cares of the world,
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:33.250
  • "the deceitfulness of riches, the desire for other things
  • 00:10:33.260 --> 00:10:36.160
  • "enter, choking the word and it becomes unfruitful."
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:38.260
  • He said this third group, their priorities are amiss.
  • 00:10:38.270 --> 00:10:41.290
  • Look at number four.
  • 00:10:43.190 --> 00:10:44.180
  • He said, "But these are the ones on good ground,
  • 00:10:45.290 --> 00:10:49.050
  • "who hear the word, accept it and bear fruit,
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:52.050
  • "some 30-fold some 60 and some 100."
  • 00:10:52.060 --> 00:10:55.170
  • Lord bless the reading of your word.
  • 00:10:55.180 --> 00:10:57.040
  • Let's clap to Jesus right now.
  • 00:10:57.050 --> 00:10:58.180
  • Amen.

  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:10:59.150 --> 00:11:01.000
  • I just declare everybody under the sound of my voice,
  • 00:11:01.010 --> 00:11:02.050
  • we're going to be good ground.
  • 00:11:02.060 --> 00:11:03.030
  • Somebody say, good ground.
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:04.040

  • suddenlies.
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:09.100
  • Oh, I love it when you read
  • 00:12:13.250 --> 00:12:16.030
  • in the stories of Jesus, Pastor Dick,
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:18.000
  • and it says and suddenly an angel appeared,
  • 00:12:18.010 --> 00:12:22.170
  • and suddenly she stood up right,
  • 00:12:22.180 --> 00:12:25.000
  • and immediately he was made clean.
  • 00:12:26.050 --> 00:12:29.110
  • Man, I love quicklies, immediatelies and suddenlies.
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:33.070
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:12:33.080 --> 00:12:34.200
  • I'm a quickly, immediately, suddenly guy.
  • 00:12:34.210 --> 00:12:37.140
  • I love them.
  • 00:12:39.060 --> 00:12:40.190
  • God can do them.
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:41.270
  • I've experienced them, and I've watched them.
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:46.140
  • And I love the quicklies,
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:49.020
  • the immediatelies,
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:51.020
  • and the suddenlies.
  • 00:12:51.030 --> 00:12:52.060
  • However, we get into the rut of thinking
  • 00:12:53.120 --> 00:12:56.030
  • that is God's only category.
  • 00:12:56.040 --> 00:12:58.010
  • And then if He does not move in the realm of quicklies,
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:02.190
  • immediately and suddenlies,
  • 00:13:02.200 --> 00:13:04.200
  • then we think that it as God does not care for us
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:08.110
  • or He has not answered our prayer.
  • 00:13:08.120 --> 00:13:10.030
  • Is it that His word is not true?
  • 00:13:11.110 --> 00:13:13.110
  • And if I didn't come down
  • 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:15.050
  • and I was healed immediately,
  • 00:13:15.060 --> 00:13:17.240
  • we think we didn't get healed.
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:20.100
  • That's not so.
  • 00:13:20.110 --> 00:13:21.090
  • We think that if we didn't get delivered immediately,
  • 00:13:22.230 --> 00:13:25.160
  • then God didn't deliver me.
  • 00:13:26.180 --> 00:13:27.220
  • That is just not true.
  • 00:13:27.230 --> 00:13:29.000
  • Because we don't understand the kingdom.
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:32.060
  • The kingdom is not immediately, quickly and suddenly,
  • 00:13:33.150 --> 00:13:35.280
  • miracles are.
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:38.280
  • Okay?
  • 00:13:39.240 --> 00:13:40.230
  • I can say something right here
  • 00:13:40.240 --> 00:13:42.000
  • but I don't know how much you can take.
  • 00:13:42.010 --> 00:13:44.040
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:47.150
  • The goal of God, our walk spiritually
  • 00:13:49.100 --> 00:13:52.250
  • is to parallel the walk of Israel and the Old Testament.
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:55.230
  • God takes you out, He delivers you.
  • 00:13:55.240 --> 00:13:57.200
  • They were delivered from Pharaoh in Egypt,
  • 00:13:57.210 --> 00:14:00.140
  • God delivers us from sin and the power of the enemy.
  • 00:14:00.150 --> 00:14:03.030
  • We walk through the wilderness, that was our journey,
  • 00:14:03.040 --> 00:14:04.280
  • we go into the promised land,
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:06.180
  • that was a physical place.
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:07.270
  • For us, it's a place of the promises of God.
  • 00:14:07.280 --> 00:14:10.070
  • We live in those promises.
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:12.210
  • But let me tell you something.
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:14.130
  • I hear people all the time,
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:15.290
  • I'm shutting the door on a car and I hear in the parking lot
  • 00:14:16.000 --> 00:14:17.270
  • "I'll get my miracle today, I need a miracle from God,"
  • 00:14:17.280 --> 00:14:20.210
  • the are on the Facebook thread,
  • 00:14:20.220 --> 00:14:21.200
  • "I need a miracle from God."
  • 00:14:21.210 --> 00:14:23.110
  • If you need a miracle everyday,
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:25.110
  • you're not in the promised land.
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:27.060
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:14:27.070 --> 00:14:30.030
  • Miracles is what God does in the wilderness.
  • 00:14:30.040 --> 00:14:32.290
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:14:34.010 --> 00:14:38.070
  • The promised land is where you know how to work the ground
  • 00:14:38.080 --> 00:14:41.020
  • and live in overflow.
  • 00:14:41.030 --> 00:14:42.210
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:14:42.220 --> 00:14:45.170
  • The Bible says when they were in the desert,
  • 00:14:45.180 --> 00:14:47.080
  • God gave them manna.
  • 00:14:47.090 --> 00:14:48.170
  • And as soon as they got in the promised land,
  • 00:14:48.180 --> 00:14:50.200
  • a land that flows with milk and honey,
  • 00:14:50.210 --> 00:14:53.020
  • the Bible said, "and the manna ceased."
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:55.100
  • So when God gets you in a place where you learn how to work
  • 00:14:56.240 --> 00:14:59.210
  • sowing and reaping, He stops giving you stuff.
  • 00:14:59.220 --> 00:15:03.170
  • Because He gives in the season, He gives you a stuff,
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:06.280
  • you're just getting just enough.
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:09.090
  • When He takes you into the promised land
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:11.080
  • then you can operate in more than enough.
  • 00:15:11.090 --> 00:15:13.290
  • But you got to know how to work it.
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.240
  • Tell your neighbor,
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:17.020
  • you got to know how to work the kingdom.
  • 00:15:17.030 --> 00:15:18.270
  • Can I keep going?
  • 00:15:18.280 --> 00:15:19.280
  • - Yes. - Stay with me here,
  • 00:15:19.290 --> 00:15:21.080
  • I'm taking you on a journey today.
  • 00:15:21.090 --> 00:15:22.170
  • It's a quick journey, but it's a journey.
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:24.270
  • Okay?
  • 00:15:24.280 --> 00:15:25.230
  • So, we put expectations on quicklies,
  • 00:15:26.270 --> 00:15:30.210
  • immediatelies and suddenlies.
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:32.050
  • And put up Proverbs if you would, please,
  • 00:15:33.210 --> 00:15:35.200
  • I believe it's chapters 13.
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:39.030
  • "Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
  • 00:15:39.040 --> 00:15:41.270
  • "but when desire comes, it is the tree of life."
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:44.090
  • That word sick there, I looked it up in Hebrew, it says,
  • 00:15:44.100 --> 00:15:47.020
  • to pull the rug.
  • 00:15:47.030 --> 00:15:48.100
  • When you set your expectation
  • 00:15:51.090 --> 00:15:53.170
  • and the expectation is not met,
  • 00:15:54.130 --> 00:15:56.230
  • and if you think everything God is going to do
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:04.150
  • has suddenly attached to it,
  • 00:16:04.160 --> 00:16:06.240
  • and quickly attached to it,
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:10.080
  • you're going to end up with a case of heart sickness.
  • 00:16:10.090 --> 00:16:13.240
  • Heart sickness is a heart that can no longer conceive faith.
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:17.190
  • It's been disappointed so many times
  • 00:16:18.210 --> 00:16:21.140
  • because it's expectations were wrong,
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:24.170
  • that now it doesn't have the ability
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:26.130
  • to believe God for anything.
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:28.050
  • Now, that's when you become religious.
  • 00:16:28.060 --> 00:16:30.170
  • You come here with no faith, going through the motions,
  • 00:16:30.180 --> 00:16:33.260
  • singing a song with no expectation,
  • 00:16:33.270 --> 00:16:36.050
  • lifting your hand with no expectation,
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:38.100
  • clapping with no expectation,
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:40.020
  • give God a praise, you with no expectation,
  • 00:16:40.030 --> 00:16:43.020
  • you say amen to the word with no expectation,
  • 00:16:43.030 --> 00:16:45.210
  • you came and leave the same way because your heart is sick.
  • 00:16:45.220 --> 00:16:49.250
  • If you repeatedly set an expectation on God,
  • 00:16:49.260 --> 00:16:53.190
  • that everything He does, He's got to do it in the moment,
  • 00:16:53.200 --> 00:16:56.230
  • you are going to be disappointed,
  • 00:16:56.240 --> 00:16:58.200
  • because that is not the way the kingdom operates.
  • 00:16:58.210 --> 00:17:02.230
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:17:02.240 --> 00:17:06.120
  • So, He comes out of the gate,
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:08.250
  • and He says, "I'm going to let you peer behind the curtain
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:12.200
  • "into power
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:16.160
  • "and provision that is beyond your wildest imagination."
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:20.090
  • The Bible says, we have been given every possible,
  • 00:17:23.030 --> 00:17:27.050
  • every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus,
  • 00:17:27.060 --> 00:17:31.090
  • in heavenly places.
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:32.250
  • When Jesus bowed His head and said, "It is finished,"
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:35.230
  • Jesus no longer has anything He's going to do.
  • 00:17:37.200 --> 00:17:41.030
  • He's finished.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:44.000
  • And the Bible said He went back at the right hand
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:46.000
  • of the Father and He sat down,
  • 00:17:46.010 --> 00:17:48.090
  • and you're not going to get Him up,
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:50.070
  • because He's finished.
  • 00:17:52.030 --> 00:17:53.120
  • There's nothing to do.
  • 00:17:54.120 --> 00:17:55.170
  • When you pray, God don't jump up and run,
  • 00:17:55.180 --> 00:17:57.290
  • start wiping His brow,
  • 00:17:58.000 --> 00:17:58.270
  • saying what am I going to do?
  • 00:17:58.280 --> 00:17:59.210
  • What am I going to do?
  • 00:17:59.220 --> 00:18:00.170
  • What am I going to do?
  • 00:18:00.180 --> 00:18:01.250
  • She's in trouble again, she's in trouble again,
  • 00:18:01.260 --> 00:18:02.190
  • what am I going to do?
  • 00:18:02.200 --> 00:18:03.250
  • He's finished.
  • 00:18:03.260 --> 00:18:04.230
  • He's finished.
  • 00:18:06.000 --> 00:18:07.070
  • I went to a prophetic conference one time.
  • 00:18:07.080 --> 00:18:10.050
  • I'm so ugly sometimes,
  • 00:18:10.060 --> 00:18:11.170
  • I'm ashamed of myself.
  • 00:18:12.130 --> 00:18:13.260
  • I was at a prophetic conference,
  • 00:18:13.270 --> 00:18:15.140
  • whole conference of prophets.
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:17.050
  • That's really not my dominant gift.
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:19.020
  • There's this whole conference,
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:20.100
  • I mean, this huge room of prophets.
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:22.140
  • And I mean for hours, I sat there and heard,
  • 00:18:22.150 --> 00:18:24.150
  • "God is about to and God is going to
  • 00:18:24.160 --> 00:18:26.130
  • "and God is getting ready
  • 00:18:26.140 --> 00:18:27.210
  • "and God is about and God is getting ready."
  • 00:18:27.220 --> 00:18:30.010
  • And it came time to speak.
  • 00:18:30.020 --> 00:18:32.120
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:34.150
  • And I got up and said,
  • 00:18:34.160 --> 00:18:35.270
  • "I just want to let everybody in the room know,
  • 00:18:35.280 --> 00:18:37.040
  • "God is not about to do anything.
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:39.080
  • "He's already done it all.
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:40.250
  • "It is finished."
  • 00:18:40.260 --> 00:18:42.000
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:18:42.010 --> 00:18:44.280
  • You might be getting ready
  • 00:18:44.290 --> 00:18:46.060
  • to come into something God has already done,
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:49.040
  • but God is not going to get up and do anything.
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:52.040
  • It is --
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:53.110
  • you already healed, you already provided for,
  • 00:18:53.120 --> 00:18:56.020
  • your children are already saved.
  • 00:18:56.030 --> 00:18:57.180
  • Come on, your prayers are already answered.
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:18:59.190
  • It's all -- I've been blessed with every spiritual blessing
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:02.160
  • in heavenly places.
  • 00:19:02.170 --> 00:19:04.130
  • It's done.
  • 00:19:04.140 --> 00:19:05.160
  • (congregation applauding)
  • 00:19:05.170 --> 00:19:08.130
  • If it's done, then what's the problem?
  • 00:19:08.140 --> 00:19:11.110
  • You want to know what the problem is?
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:15.260
  • All we talk about is the problem.
  • 00:19:15.270 --> 00:19:17.100
  • Let's be real about the faith.
  • 00:19:17.110 --> 00:19:18.260
  • Faith is not the ability to create what does not exist,
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:25.050
  • faith is taking something in one dimension
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:29.030
  • and moving it to another.
  • 00:19:29.040 --> 00:19:30.280
  • We have preached that the opposite of faith is doubt.
  • 00:19:30.290 --> 00:19:33.270
  • The opposite of faith is not doubt,
  • 00:19:33.280 --> 00:19:35.230
  • the opposite of faith is sight.
  • 00:19:35.240 --> 00:19:37.190
  • They just lived by faith not by sight.
  • 00:19:40.100 --> 00:19:43.070
  • The contrast with faith is sight.
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:45.140
  • In other words, if it is in the visible realm,
  • 00:19:45.150 --> 00:19:48.040
  • I do not need faith.
  • 00:19:48.050 --> 00:19:49.080
  • But if it is in the invisible realm,
  • 00:19:50.130 --> 00:19:52.230
  • it already exist,
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:54.240
  • God's already provided it, but I can't see it,
  • 00:19:54.250 --> 00:19:58.100
  • and I've got to have faith to move it
  • 00:19:58.110 --> 00:20:00.150
  • from one realm into another realm.
  • 00:20:00.160 --> 00:20:02.200
  • I'm going to say it again.
  • 00:20:02.210 --> 00:20:03.230
  • God's already provided it,
  • 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:05.170
  • it's in heavenly places,
  • 00:20:05.180 --> 00:20:07.110
  • I cannot see it,
  • 00:20:07.120 --> 00:20:08.250
  • but the word tells me it's there,
  • 00:20:08.260 --> 00:20:10.280
  • and the word tells me it's mine.
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:13.010
  • And the word tells me if I got faith,
  • 00:20:13.020 --> 00:20:14.240
  • I can move it into my life.
  • 00:20:14.250 --> 00:20:16.290
  • Faith is bringing it from the invisible to the visible.
  • 00:20:17.000 --> 00:20:20.210
  • Somebody shouted, amen.
  • 00:20:20.220 --> 00:20:21.280
  • - [Congregation] Amen.
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:22.240
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:27.180
  • - Can you tell I'm feeling this thing?
  • 00:20:28.230 --> 00:20:30.170
  • - [Congregation] Yes.
  • 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:32.290
  • - So,
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:33.260
  • He says,
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:36.260
  • the sower
  • 00:20:36.270 --> 00:20:38.120
  • sows
  • 00:20:38.130 --> 00:20:39.210
  • the word.
  • 00:20:39.220 --> 00:20:41.080
  • So you got two categories.
  • 00:20:41.090 --> 00:20:42.150
  • You got the story,
  • 00:20:42.160 --> 00:20:43.170
  • okay?
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:46.010
  • And then you got the revelation of the story.
  • 00:20:46.020 --> 00:20:48.040
  • In the story He says,
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:50.240
  • seed is being sown.
  • 00:20:53.010 --> 00:20:56.000
  • In the revelation He says that seed is actually
  • 00:20:56.010 --> 00:20:58.090
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:20:58.100 --> 00:20:59.080
  • Do you know what I'm doing right now?
  • 00:21:01.130 --> 00:21:03.090
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:21:05.160 --> 00:21:08.260
  • And that's the only part of the process I can control.
  • 00:21:11.250 --> 00:21:16.090
  • God will not hold me responsible
  • 00:21:18.220 --> 00:21:20.240
  • for what kind of ground you are,
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:22.140
  • but He will hold me directly accountable,
  • 00:21:24.030 --> 00:21:26.070
  • did I take the seed and...
  • 00:21:26.080 --> 00:21:27.240
  • And did I throw it as far as I could throw it?
  • 00:21:29.120 --> 00:21:32.180
  • That's my job.
  • 00:21:33.270 --> 00:21:35.090
  • I'm a seeds scatterer.
  • 00:21:35.100 --> 00:21:37.200
  • So then He says,
  • 00:21:37.210 --> 00:21:39.000
  • the word is soil
  • 00:21:40.120 --> 00:21:41.190
  • in their hearts.
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:46.150
  • All right, here we go.
  • 00:21:46.160 --> 00:21:48.230
  • Tap your neighbor say,
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:50.010
  • hey, we about to get in some stuff right here.
  • 00:21:50.020 --> 00:21:51.280
  • Don't look at your watch, we're having fun.
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:56.140
  • (congregation laughing)
  • 00:21:56.150 --> 00:21:57.290
  • (congregation clapping)
  • 00:21:58.000 --> 00:22:00.260
  • The soil,
  • 00:22:00.270 --> 00:22:01.220
  • everything
  • 00:22:03.000 --> 00:22:04.050
  • has to have a place to land.
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.130
  • Birds land in a nest,
  • 00:22:07.140 --> 00:22:09.090
  • foxes land in a hole, car lands in parking places,
  • 00:22:10.220 --> 00:22:14.130
  • a boat lands at a dock, a plane lands on a tarmac,
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:17.250
  • seed has to have soil.
  • 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:21.080
  • If I drop a seed in a nest, it's not going to do anything,
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:23.200
  • if I drop it on a tarmac, it's not going to do anything,
  • 00:22:23.210 --> 00:22:26.050
  • if I drop it on a boat dock, it's not going to do anything.
  • 00:22:26.060 --> 00:22:29.150
  • It has to land in the right place.
  • 00:22:29.160 --> 00:22:32.130
  • The problem with this meeting today
  • 00:22:32.140 --> 00:22:35.050
  • is I am scattering seed.
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:37.220
  • But when you walk out of this building,
  • 00:22:37.230 --> 00:22:39.150
  • it's not in the soil.
  • 00:22:39.160 --> 00:22:41.290
  • The soil is your heart.
  • 00:22:42.000 --> 00:22:43.290
  • But when you leave, it's not in your heart,
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:45.220
  • it's in your head.
  • 00:22:45.230 --> 00:22:46.200
  • And your head is not the soil for the Word of God.
  • 00:22:50.140 --> 00:22:54.130
  • This word can renew your mind and change your thinking
  • 00:22:56.050 --> 00:22:59.030
  • and it's doing that as I'm speaking,
  • 00:22:59.040 --> 00:23:01.140
  • but it's not the place
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:03.020
  • that will pull the life out of that seed.
  • 00:23:03.030 --> 00:23:05.280
  • For the life to be pulled out of a seed,
  • 00:23:05.290 --> 00:23:08.110
  • it must land in soil.
  • 00:23:08.120 --> 00:23:10.160
  • And the Bible says that the soil for the seed is the heart.
  • 00:23:10.170 --> 00:23:15.170
  • That's why He said,
  • 00:23:16.090 --> 00:23:17.150
  • "Those who produce 30, 60 and 100-fold
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:19.090
  • "fruitfulness in their life,"
  • 00:23:19.100 --> 00:23:20.200
  • He said, "Let those who hear it and accept it."
  • 00:23:20.210 --> 00:23:24.270
  • In other words, there's a difference.
  • 00:23:26.230 --> 00:23:28.070
  • Everybody's hearing me today,
  • 00:23:28.080 --> 00:23:30.040
  • but not everybody will take what I'm saying and embrace it
  • 00:23:31.170 --> 00:23:34.250
  • with their faith.
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:36.020
  • He said the people that go to the second level,
  • 00:23:37.140 --> 00:23:40.020
  • and take their heart and wrap the tentacles
  • 00:23:40.030 --> 00:23:42.150
  • of their faith around that word,
  • 00:23:42.160 --> 00:23:44.090
  • He said these are the seeds that fall on good soil,
  • 00:23:44.100 --> 00:23:47.190
  • and it will produce 30, 60 and 100-fold.
  • 00:23:47.200 --> 00:23:50.060
  • These are the people that will live a bountiful life.
  • 00:23:50.070 --> 00:23:53.030
  • And it doesn't matter what comes against them,
  • 00:23:53.040 --> 00:23:55.100
  • they will never fail to produce,
  • 00:23:55.110 --> 00:23:57.100
  • they'll never have a dry season,
  • 00:23:57.110 --> 00:23:59.100
  • they'll always be fruitfulness in their life.
  • 00:23:59.110 --> 00:24:02.080
  • The fruitfulness of your life is not dependent
  • 00:24:02.090 --> 00:24:05.000
  • on the goodness of God,
  • 00:24:05.010 --> 00:24:06.170
  • it's dependent on the condition of your soil.
  • 00:24:06.180 --> 00:24:09.260
  • (congregation applauding)
